I have heard this but I didn't see any field that I could type in anywhere...where is it located to ask?

The box where it says leave a gift message, if you put a sample request there they usually send them if they're available. They're pretty good about sending a lot if you ask. I think I got about 5 last time. Obviously within reason. I got a gorgeous sample, a feeling younger highlighter sample, and another moisturizer. And a chunk of honey I washed the kids soap and a chunk of strawberry feels massage bar.

@ - Thanks. I read that somewhere but, I thought it was the UK way. I will definitely give this a try when I place another order.

After the African Paradise full size goodie in my last order and some other great add ons that others have got, it seemed like leaving it to chance COULD result in something great.

Does anyone know how many samples are reasonable to ask for in store? I am terrible about asking for free things or anything for that matter. I would have left without a sample my last visit, if it wasn't offered.

I also have trouble asking for free things! I only ask at Lush if I'm purchasing something. I usually only ask for one thing. However, over Christmas I purchased a lot of items so I asked for two (WOW! WHOPPING NUMBER) sample shower gels. I don't know if I'd ever feel comfortable asking for more  :unsure:

I say ask for whatever items you are truly interested in. I can't tell you how many free samples turn into purchases for me, they know this or wouldn't offer them... I'm looking at you Sephora!

We will purchase a few things on Saturday.  My daughters first bath bomb didn't knock her or I over.  Maybe splitting it was the wrong thing to do.  Anyway, I will let her pick out a couple things and I will get a few things so, I hopefully it will be easy to get a sample or two.

@@Kookymama check out YouTube or Instagram, people always post the bath bombs and you can tell some are way better than others.

Whenever I'm in store I load up on samples, however, I am always buying products as well. The sales associates are always more than happy to make the samples and often recommend items they think I would like based on other products I'm purchasing.  I agree with @@SaraP about letting customers sample products helps sales as well!  I have wavy hair and a Lush employee made me a sample of Curly Wurly Shampoo without me even asking about it, and now I'm on my third pot of it!

@@SaraP - Thank you.   I just looked at one for the floating flower and its much better in one piece.   Oh well, it was a good test and now I am in the now.

 

I had stumbled upon these videos before and purposely avoided them to be spoiler free.  ;)  Off to look for one on the unicorn horn.   This is too funny.

@@chelsealynn - You are right. I think they will be more apt to help me out this time as I am not going in the store like a Zombie. Last time, I only went in to look because I had an order coming. The strong scent made it hard to concentrate.  It was a similar feeling to walking into a Hollister where the music makes it hard for me to focus.  I basically wanted out.    I think I needed a little background before going in a Lush store. So, this time I will be armed with a list to start with.

I ended up with 3 samples.  It wasn't easy but, I got them!  The store pushed smaller sizes to try more than the samples.  When I insisted I didn't like a particular smell, I was pushed to try it anyway.  So, one sample is something I wouldn't have chosen.  But, I am happy to rule it out officially or be surprised.
 
I think I am good on Lush for awhile.  I am telling myself it has to all be gone before I buy again.  Or there is a sale.  :D

I don't know if it's been discussed here or not yet, but there's an online business at "somethinspecial.com" that does incredible lush dupes. The owner sue is a sweetheart, and I ordered some "sweet petal" (rose jam) soy wax melts, a sweet petal lotion, a "sugar fairy" (snow fairy) body scrub and lotion. I am thrilled with them. They're about as close as any dupe I can find. And she does perfume, lotion, scrub, melts, just about anything pretty cheap. I can finally have my rose jam all year round!

 

She does other dupes as well, those are just my favorite

Does anyone know if the little sample pots are included in the "bring back 5 empty pots" deal for a free Face mask? 

 

It seems they would be because their intent is to recycle.  I am just questioning it because the items I received in them were free. 

 

BTW, I have the Oatifix fresh face mask.   This is dangerous stuff.  It makes me crave cookies!

Ooooh, Oatifix!  I want to eat it.  It smells so good!

MENU UPDATE

 

Friday's item will either be Lemslip buttercream or Calacas jelly.  Personally, I'm hoping for Lemslip.  Voting - in some weird Lush way - is currently happening on their FB page.  I think it's BS though, I've seen people overwhelmingly vote for one thing and them end up making the other.

@@Kimb3rly - Thanks for the pot clarification. I am not surprised as people would work the system and get samples to continue to get free masks.

I haven't ordered from the kitchen yet. When you order do you just get from the kitchen or mix with regular products.  If you like a Monday and a Friday item, is it a risk to wait until Friday to order both?  Will the Monday item be gone?

 

Sorry about all the questions!  Off to wash my face with Angels on Bare Skin.  Still trying to figure out if I like this.

Sometimes I get just a kitchen item, or several, but typically I mix it with the permanent items. 

 

As for products being left come the end of the week, it's hard to tell.  Some items are incredibly popular and they're gone within 30 minutes, others hang out for a few days.  If it's an item that sounds really good to you though, it's best to go ahead and grab it.  They post the products on the website at 3 AM EST and they are usually still available around noon my time (EST).  The exception to this is the perfumes.  They sell out almost immediately.  As my own general rule, if I like a Monday item and a Friday item, I'll place an order for those on their release day.  If I like a Monday and Tuesday item though, I'll chance it and wait until Tuesday to order both.  Sometimes I win and sometimes I lose.

I am home from the Lush Spa!  

 

It was amazing!  Oh, I am so in love  :wub: .  I had the Validation Treatment, which is their facial.  It was so nice.   All of the sales associates were excited for me and kept telling me how great it is when I was checking in.  My masseuse, Caitlin, was awesome.  She explained the treatment and then took me back out onto the shop floor and we went through and picked out various items to use for my face. It was really nice. The facial is set up to have you ensure you have a cleanser, toner, moisturizers, eye cream, lip scrub, face, mask, exfoliator, etc.  Based on my skin concerns, she would recommend a product or two in a category but it was up to me as to what I wanted to try.  In all, there were probably like 14 or so products that we used.  For some products, she used new ones (mask, lip scrub) and for others she sanitized them.  The therapy room was nice.  It was modeled to look 'homey' and kind of like an English cottage (at least that's the feel I thought it had).  It felt so nice and was really relaxing.  I was kind of surprised that I had to take my shirt off but they did give me a towel to cover up with and I was under a blanket as well.  Besides a facial massage and using all of the various facial products it also had a massage on my chest/arms.  Part of the facial massage included cold stones.  It felt so so so good.  They also play this really relaxing music that features actual recordings of waves hitting the shore just off Poole in England which I thought was cool.  I also love that all of the masseuses trained in London with the creators of Lush.  Plus, I came home with the rest of my face mask and a few of the other products that were  left over at the end of my treatment.  I'm going back for a different treatment next month :D   If you are ever in the area, go!

Um, is everything an appropriate answer? Lol.

 

I love that pink (I this m it's just called pink?) Bath bond, sikkim girls lotion, ...I haven't not loved any of the bath bombs honestly. The bubblegum lip scrub is the bomb, and the sweetie pie stuff is lovely.

 

OMG I love it all Haha.

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.
