I’m happy to announce that I am part of the Lush family again! I just got back from my first day at one of the locations here. Boy, have I ever missed working there. I love coming home smelling like it.

Total coconut fiend here. Let’s cut to the chase. This isn’t the best coconut tea I’ve had, but it’s pretty good. The base is great, but I was hoping for a little more chocolate, I think. Actually, this kind of reminds me of Tea Desire’s Praline de Champagne even though that has rose and strawberry on top of the chocolate (and perhaps coconut too, it’s been years).

It’s better hot, especially with soy milk. Naturally, the chocolate coconut comes through more strongly with the milk.

Cold-steeped? Meh. It kind of turns a little floral. I think the amaranth is speaking up this time. Don’t know what’s with that. 52teas Coconut Cream Pie still reigns supreme when it comes to iced coconut black tea.

yaaay LUSH buddies! What’s your favourite Christmas item so far this year? I’m studying like a mad woman, but I think I have most of the key ingredients down pat like you suggested :)

Fjellrev

I’m excited about having a long-distance co-worker haha. It’s hard to choose, but I’m impressed with Rocket, but only because I love violet and clove together. Reminds me of the discontinued Bathos bubble bar which was one of my favourites. Also, just washed my face with Let the Good Times Roll and it’s amaaaaazing. How about you?

Amariel

Nice! Which Lush location are you at? Downtown or Hillside? That reminds me, I need to check into this play dough soap/shampoo thingamabob.

Amariel

Oh dear…look at all the hair stuff that’s new. Sigh…too bad most of it has SLS/ALS. Still, me want to try!!

DaisyChubb

Oh yeah Rocket is too awesome, so refreshing and fun! :3 Long distance co-worker win!
Hmm I have to say I am obsessed with Ponche. I want to eat it. It’s so freeessh I have dreams about it. I haven’t tasted it, which is probably a good thing ;)

Fjellrev

Heather, I’m at Hillside. I recommend trying out the Fun! I got the pink one yesterday and used it as soap and shampoo, and it’s ultra silky due to the cornstarch. And the scent really lingered. :D I can’t wait for the new haircare to come in. It’s probably my favourite product category. Do you have a shop location preference?

Daisy, good call on the Ponche! Our store is already out and our tester is ultra low so I’m going to have to wait to get a bottle. I’m personally really happy they brought Twilight back. SO dreamy, and it makes your hair smell wonderful.

DaisyChubb

Ohh Twilight, it’s like crack in shower gel form haha.

And FUN is so fun! I haven’t tried it yet, but just from playing with it all day my hands are super soft and smell amazing. :)

Fjellrev

It was so hard to choose which one to get first. Was going between the pink and yellow. Do you know which one you’d like to try first?

I’m so sad that Crackersnap won’t be available for individual sale in the stores! Too bad they’re so fragile.

Amariel

I saw the Fun tonight, but didn’t play with it. I had a hand wash with Let the Good Times Roll, mixed with some Ponche. Finished with Creme Anglais. Facial with Ultrabland as the base instead of water, LTGTR, Breath of Fresh Air, and Enchanted Eye Cream as my overall moisturizer. I think she also massaged the serum in. I’m feeling oily now, but I think it is because there was the ultrabland base that might not have gotten washed away well enough, plus the serum and moisturizer. I did get a small amount of LTGTR to take home though. Turns out the new hair stuff isn’t in til the 26th I think…later this month at least.

DaisyChubb

Pink totally! Oh MAN I got to demo crackersnap at our staff meeting and it is massive and awesome! Smells like avobath, and the joke is just.. wow. I’m sure it’s a different joke for everyone but I don’t remember what it was, all I remember was groaning lol! It is too bad we can’t have them on the shelves – speaking of gifts, that’s what I’m studying right now. So.. much.. memorizing.

Oh I have to try let the good times roll now!

Heather that sounds like an awesome visit! Yeah I love ultrabland just on it’s own, I can see how it would feel oily with the other products. It can be a moisture boost for tonight anyways! haha

Pretty pumped for the new hair stuff! I’m such a lush noob. I love this conversation though :)

Amariel

My only issues with the hair stuff are that they still use sulfates in both shampoos and conditioners (though the new Big solid conditioner looks sulfate free) and sulfates are pretty drying and stripping to wavy and curly hair like mine. I find it does very on the formula though, and I do use them occasionally, but not often, because of that. I also find that though the conditioners feel nice, they’re not great for detangling the mess my hair gets into.
