I’m a sucker for Lush. Whenever I’m walking through a town, that smell just draws me to the store- no map needed. So when I knew I was going travelling I was excited to see what they had on offer for a would-be backpacker like myself!
I already knew about the shampoo bars and their nifty little tins from a friend who picked them up for her travels around Canada. Out of the range, the Seanik shampoo bar appealed to me the most for three reasons:
- It detangles. Perfect for a curly girl like me who wakes up in the morning with the craziest hair 🙈
- It volumizes. I swear I used to have thick hair but slightly over a quarter of the way through my life combined with the stresses of teaching have thinned my mane out somewhat 😰
- I’m a sucker for seaweed. My favourite Lush bath bomb is big blue and the scent and look of it reminded me of it💙
I also picked up a solid conditioner called The Plumps. Bring on the volume right girls? 🙌🏻
After musing on whether to buy a bar of soap instead of my trusty shower gel that was bound to take up precious shoe space in my rucksack, I wondered whether they’d have some kind of solid shower gel and found The Sunblock. It’s a solid sunscreen wash that will lather up my pastey milk bottle skin with factor 30: Bonus!
With 8 days left to go I’m super excited to try them! Hopefully they’ll keep a soon to be sweaty backpacker smelling sweet and fresh 👌🏻
