Thanks, Lush

My tax refund order arrived last night, and I unpacked and put away most of my things and set aside Maresche's items to take to work today. Somehow, I missed a little sample of Herbalism, which I noticed this morning when I was folding up all the packing paper. I set it on the shelf unit which runs the length of the back wall of the breezeway, intending to try it tomorrow morning.

As much as I love Lush's bubble bars and ballistics, I've been resistant to getting into their face care because it's so very expensive and I have very odd skin, oily yet flaky, with overlarge pores. Still, I was going to try the Herbalism.

Tonight, when I got home from work, I let Bigfoot out and fed Littlefoot, then let Littlefoot out and fed Bigfoot. When they were both fed and I had changed out of my work clothes, I ran out to the curb to get the mail and bring in the trash can and recycling bin. In the two minutes that took, Bigfoot found my sample and decided Herbalism was a nice dessert. Since the sample was about two ounces, I'm not too worried about the nettle irritating his innards. However, the kaolin may prove to be a bit of a constipator for the old man.

So thanks, Lush, but I won't be trying your skin care this time around.


  1. I touched the bottom of the tiny sample of Gorgeous yesterday. I got the shakes.

  2. Z, Bigfoot used to do that with Avon lip balms, except he'd crack them open like bones and eat the marrow/gloss out. And I think in this case, the glycerin cancelled out the kaolin.

    Your Majesticness, they have something now called "A Night in for Two" which has 2 samples of the moisturizer of your choice and some other stuff for $20. It's a pretty good way to get your hands on some teeny Gorgeouses.
