a bin full of lush..

So I found a stash of Lush products hidden away in the 'hat box' they sell, at the back of my wardrobe. I was very excited. I picked one of the bath ballistics up and it didn't smell very nice, the colour was dull and it was very powdery. So I rang lush up and asked when the expiry date was, they said usually 14 months, but they had been in my wardrobe for about two years. I had to chuck them all in the bin, it felt very unjustified and with there being a comforter, marshmallow moment and a flosty gritter bubble bar in there, I was annoyed at myself for leaving them so long! Oh well, it had to be done. I thought I would share the pain with you. You can tell how old they were, the flosty gritter is still in old style Lush plastic packaging, you can really see how sad marshmallow moment is!


(P.S. don't be tempted to use them if they have gone past the expiry date, give or take a month, it's gross!)

  6. This is so sad, I am terrible for saving stuff for too long though, because Lush stuff is so lovely I think I should save stuff for special occasions, which never seem to come!

  7. Lush solid products can be used long after the 14 months shelf life. People use the ballistics & bubble bars several years after they've been discontinued with no problems. They're solid so there isn't really anything in them that can go off as such, it's more that they lose their scent.
