LUSH UK and AU haul!

A couple of weeks ago I placed a big order on LUSH UK. Why? Because, when you order as much as me, it turns out to be cheaper. I ordered a couple of products that aren't sold in Australia, as well as one that I would never pay the Australian price for. 
Aqua Marina: $15.95 for 100g OR £5.95 (can be converted to $8.97AUD) for 100g
Ocean Salt: $35.95 for 250g OR £12.50 (can be converted to $18.85 AUD) for 250g
These two products are staples in my daily skincare routine (see my LUSH Skincare Challenge Week 11) and I don't think I could live without them. When I was waiting for this to arrive I completely ran out of Aqua Marina and my skin went crazy. 

New Solid  Shampoo: $13.50 OR £5.00 (can be converted to $7.54AUD) 

Shampoo Bar Tin: $4.95 OR £2.50 (can be converted to $3.77AUD)
I've always wanted to try a LUSH Solid Shampoo for a while so I figured how was as good a time as any. This is meant to reduce hair loss so we'll see!
I've heard this moisturiser was designed for Princess Diana a while ago and, I figure, any moisturiser that's good enough for her is good enough for me. I've wanted to try LUSH's Gorgeous moisturiser for the longest time but I can't justify paying $99.95AUD for it. It's just too much. LUSH UK sells this product for £37.40 (can be converted to $56.42AUD) which is a lot more reasonable, even though it's still a lot.
Coolaulin: £3.95 (can be converted to $5.95AUD) for 100g
American Cream: $13.95 OR £4.25 (can be converted to $6.41AUD) for 100g

Only one of these conditioners, American Cream, is available in Aus. I got the other one just to try. These conditioners were a bit of a 'why not?' purchase. I've always wanted to try American Cream and Coolaulin (a coconut based conditioner for dry and damaged hair) appealed to me too.

Last I went into LUSH to take part in their recycling program. I returned 5 empty black LUSH pots and received a free fresh face mask of my choice. I chose Brazened Honey.
I  also scored two samples; Mask of Magnaminty Cleanser (to be used as a face mask) and Enchanted Eye Cream.

So that's my fairly substantial LUSH haul. As you can see, if you have a big shopping list it may be easier to go through the LUSK UK website. 

What do you think of the products I bought?  Have you tried any of them before? Do you have any LUSH recommendations?

  1. I love lush! how much was postage from the UK? and how long did it take to get to Aust? I am so interested in doing this next time I have some money to splurge, and since it is nearly tax time.. that will be soon rather than later haha. xx

  2. Nicky, it's never taken more than a week to get to me in WA (though you're meant to allow 2 weeks). Price goes on weight - here's the chart: https://www.lush.co.uk/delivery

  3. Did your bank charge you a currency conversion fee??
