I want to try the new Gorilla perfumes so bad! Furze in particular sounds really good. I've always found their perfumes a bit stinky, though, so maybe I shouldn't get my hopes up.

i got a FUN soap as a gift the other day (green) and i was confused because they're not marked as vegan on the website, but the one i have says "vegan" all over the place so i guess it's safe. maybe i won't get my hopes up, though. ha!

in other news: does LUSH take back *all* containers, or just the black pots with the message on it (i.e., "bring this back blah blah")? i'm starting to pile up with black pots and glass jars and lippie containers but i don't want to cart them there if they'll just throw them away.

They take back the black pots in exchange for the face masks. The rest you can just throw in the recycle.

WHAT?! they don't sell them anymore? I have one i am working my way through too. i hope they bring back the multi-pack thing, it was much better than my usual random-BPAL-imp-off-ebay purchase when i have no idea what perfume to buy.

I know! I had a look at the Austrian website last night - no more Breath of God solid perfume!!
So I immediately went to the UK site, where it's still listed, and ordered an emergency stick that will hopefully last me a year or so.
Don't know what I'll do after that, though. :(

If you see something on the website that you know is vegan but isn't marked so online just email them and they'll fix it really quickly. That's always worked for me.

Every time I've tried Angels on Bare Skin its left an oily residue on my face that just sits there and never absorbed. Has anyone else ever had this problem?

It might be worth dropping customer care in Austria a line. Breath of God is still part of the core range in stores and online. I believe you'll be able to buy the miniatures (imps) online but I'm not certain.

I just got an email back from Lush... the FUN soaps are indeed vegan! (I've never seen the actual packaging in real life, since there is no Lush within about 250 miles.)

Hi zensquiggle!

Thank you for writing to us. I'm very sorry for the confusion there on our website- it seems this was just an error as all the FUN colours are 100% vegan. Our Web Marketing team is just in the midst of correcting this on the website, and soon they should show the small V logo as well.

Thanks so much for contacting us, and if you have any further questions or concerns, please let me know. Have a good one!

Kind regards,

So I tried out Angels on Bare Skin on MBM's recommendation and it's actually amazing for my skin right now. My acne seems to be going away and my skin is evening out (no more dry/oily spots).

I love Rub Rub Rub so much. And I would never have thought so (because of the salt), but it works as a shampoo as well.

In a few weeks I'm going to try out Lush's red henna. I'm tired of having yellow hair. I'm excited for red! I'm going to try the Caca Rouge, and if it's too orange for me I'll switch to the Caca Marron.

I use Caca Rouge on my dirty blonde hair and it is a nice bright auburn. I am excited for you, sisterlegume!

I tried a bar soap, the yellow one (jasmine, forgot the name) so that I could travel with it. Not a liquid = yay.

I was kind of scared, but I LOVE it. It smells good, I don't need conditioner, and it is gentle enough I can use it daily. I usually shampoo every other day or more, but when I travel and have to be in front of customers or even on camera, I have to look 100% every day.

The only thing I don't love is trying to get the tin open with wet hands in the shower. I literally threw it on the ground in frustration and it opened, thank Jebus.

Godiva is one of my favorites! I wish they would create screwtop lids, though.

My husband is in love with Greeench. He stole mine after a trip and I never saw it again until he told me he was out.

The big conditioner is growing on me. I found I had to actually break off a chunk of it then rub it all into my hair. The smell is great. don't know if I will keep with it though because it is pricey especially considering Lush is a 2 hour drive each way for me and postage to here is steep too.

It is one week and 2 days before I get to go to lush. I seriously can't contain myself. I need some Big shampoo badly. I ran out ages ago. Also want to give Angels on Bare skin a try. My skin has been all over the place for the past year so I want to spoil it for a bit.

Debating on buying some henna too. I've been using the henna noir but haven't put it on since early November. I think it is pretty much all out of my hair at this stage but most of my hair is still quite dark so I don't know if the other shades will take.

I really love the Angels on Bare Skin.

The price shocked me a bit, but a little really does go a long way. I get about $8/tub and it lasts me a couple of weeks, using it once a day (maybe a little less)

I have mixed oily/dry skin, and this along with one of the moisturizers (Imperialis), my skin is looking fab.

Really, I am so glad I started using Lush.

I'm liking Angels on Bare Skin at the moment too. I tried it years ago and don't remember it working that great but I got a sample with about a weeks worth and it seemed to work pretty well so just a container of it.

i got a sample of big conditioner the other day, and it was cut up into little cubes in the store, so that's how i had to use it. it does smell amazing, but for me it's about as effective as no conditioner at all. my hair needs a lot of help right now, though, because i dyed it last month after years of leaving it to its own devices, and i'm not sure any of the lush conditioners would be heavy enough for me. lately i've been using a basic conditioner in the shower and following up with a leave-in on the bottom four or five inches.

I hear ya, the last few inches of my hair was a nightmare and needed a bit of an intense conditioner but the rest was fine with the Big. I hacked off all the hair a few days ago and washed it for the first time myself this morning and it was actually perfect for it. A good bit of my head is cut very close to the scalp and I don't need any conditioner applied to hair within an inch of my scalp so that only leaves about 2-3 inches of hair that needs conditioner. The bit of hair that has any length in it is in really good condition so I reckon I will get away with the Big. Think I will get some more when I go to Lush next.
