Winter Skincare: Lush Let the Good Times Roll

As someone who eats popcorn almost every day of the week, it was a very safe bet that I'd run straight down to Lush as soon as I heard that the latest cleanser in the Christmas 2012 collection had popcorn in it.  I expected it to be pretty good (I mean it had to be with my favourite food included!) but I didn't expect to love it quite as much as I do...

Lush Let The Good Times Roll

The first thing you notice about Let the Good Times Roll is the amazing smell, like really good salted caramel, cinnamon, and lovely wholesome corn (gourmand scents are totally my thing).  I tend to use it in my shower on a morning a few times a week, mixing a small amount with water to create a paste and gently massaging into my face.  The cleanser has a fine grain texture so exfoliates really nicely, and rinses off to leave my skin feeling baby-soft, and not at all stripped.  

I love how the scent of the product lingers on the skin, but not in an overpowering way.  My fiance is obviously a fan too as he started using the cleanser a few days after I bought it and we're already onto our second tub.  I'm very much hoping that Lush put this into their permanent collection; I will be a very sad blogger if a day arrives when I can no longer buy more of this lovely stuff.  In fact just in case they're thinking of not making it permanent I might have to go make some enquiries/start a petition/organise a sit-in at my local store (at least with the latter I can buy more Lush goodies at the same time).  Wish me luck!

What Lush products would you be willing to stage some form of non-violent protest for?

Update 15th January 2013: I've just discovered Lush are still selling Let the Good Times Roll on their website, you can find it here. If I wasn't just about to start the spending ban tomorrow (my post on that is here) I'd be rushing out to buy some more straight away.  It's my birthday soon though, maybe some kind member of my family will buy it as a gift for me!

Hello (again) World!

Or I should say hello again my teeny weeny little corner of the world!

It's been a shamefully long time since I've been able to post anything on here, and I'd like to apologise for that to my followers, but you know, sometimes the rest of life has plans for you that send you off on a different course for a while.  There's been an awful lot going on these past few weeks, particularly with work but also more recently with a rather sick kitty.  Basically, when I haven't been working or fulfilling family obligations, I've been playing nursemaid, making regular trips to the vet, and just generally worrying.

I can tentatively say that my big old cat Harvey is on the mend now (definitely a weight off my mind) so despite it being well on the way to Christmas, I've still got that little extra bit of mental capacity back to get on to my blog again.  I've got plenty of things stacked up to talk about too, lots of make-up, skincare and a little bit of fashion so look out for some posts from me very soon.
