Lush 9 to 5 Cleanser

You may not remember Violet Newstead slipping rat poison in Franklin M. Hart Jr’s coffee but me and my sister remember it as if it were yesterday.

Ahh yes the 80’s at its best and a good year for the film 9 to 5 starring Dolly Parton (yea she acted a little bit as well as sung little ditties, who knew?)

My sister and I have watched this flick way too many times to count and could possibly star in a remake….

But this isn’t really about the movie it’s about the new Lush 9 to 5 Cleanser!

Oh my!

Musings of the Day: The Makeup Graveyard, Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust, Here Lays Some Old Makeup I Wouldn’t Trust!

makeup grave yard
Ahh the makeup graveyard…

It’s where long dead cosmetics go to rest in peace. It’s where that new lipstick that looks so amazing in the store but ended up not being so great at home goes to lay its weary head. It’s where that blush you absolutely LOVED last month resides when it’s replaced with that new blush that’s the hottest shade of the season.

Count me wasteful but I rarely return cosmetics because 1. I hate the hassle of doing so. Seriously, even with a receipt don’t SA’s treat you like a criminal when you have to exchange or return something you don’t like? And 2. I hate returning makeup I used, I dunno…seems weird to want my money back for something I already tried out. I feel guilty somehow.

So what happens to all this makeup I’m not using or stuff that’s old or stuff that’s been replaced with the next best thing in my makeup world?

Reader Review: Lush Sultana Review Nastiest Smelling Soap EVAR

When I first got a chunk of this soap, I was very upset. The smell of Sultana is SO overwhelming, that it actually transferred its scent to my first Porridge, I Should Coco and HIWTC, so I couldn’t even tell what they all smelled like. After airing them all out, I found that Sultana was the reason for the nose-confusion. I hate the smell, but since I bought it, I wanted to try it out. The smell is less BAM!POW! when you rinse it off your skin. I like it much better on my skin than sniffing the soap itself. I think that some hairs in my nose actually burnt to a crisp when sniffing Sultana, but that might just be my imagination. Nevertheless, I don’t plan on buying it again, but I am ok with using it until it disappears. My skin is soft, and that is the only plus.

My suggestion, if you like really gross smells, go buy this. In fact, buy the entire lot, no matter what country it’s in…that way, when I go to the LUSH store, I won’t be met by this unpleasant smell.
