Of these items, which would you choose to be in your birthday haul? 😍

So after trying this beauty of a shower gel I can officially say I'M IN LOVE 😱😍 Despite it being really runny, it creates a creamy lather with almost no foam (unlike the bubble bar shower gel which bubbled up like crazy πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚) but still works lovely! The scent was amazing and the lather was very blue, but the colour washed away easily and didn't stain me or the shower! πŸ˜…πŸ’™βœ¨

Unfortunately that's all the DIYs I've done so far, I have a few more things I'd like to do but if you've got any ideas or experiments I could try out I'd love to hear them so feel free to comment below or dm me! πŸ˜œπŸ’žπŸ˜˜

Making a shower gel out of a bath bomb! πŸ’™βœ¨ may I present the one and only, super sparkl.... *drum roll* Intergalactic shower gel! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’™πŸ€€βœ¨πŸ˜
See my previous post for the full recipe and measurements! πŸ˜‰

Since the bubble bar worked so well... why not try a bath bomb as well?! πŸ˜…
DIY Intergalactic shower gel as requested by @lushoverandover πŸ˜‹
Step 1: Get a bath bomb of your choice.
Step 2: Using a knife, scrape off some dust. I used only 15g but I you could add so much more dust, depending on how strong you want the scent!
Step 3: Get your unscented shower gel and put it in a biiiig bowl! I used ~70g of unscented gel for this.
Step 4: Gradually add the bath bomb dust to the shower gel and stir. Make sure it all mixes well.
Step 5: The mixture will foam up like a bath bomb does when it comes in contact with liquids (hence the bigger bowl πŸ˜‚). You can stir it and play with it if you want (mine got really jiggly! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) but that won't really do anything. You have to wait 1 or 2 hours and the foam will go down again, leaving a liquid gel.
Step 6: Fill the gel into an empty bottle and have fun! πŸ˜‰πŸ’™βœ¨

Karma shower gel made from Bling Crosby bubble bar 🧑✨
I finally got to try this beauty in the shower and I'm in love! I love the scent and my boyfriend likes it too! The glitter didn't stick to my skin and the gel lathered soooo well (obviously since there's half a bubble bar in it πŸ˜‚)! There's a little bit of bubble bar dust that separated from the mix and just sits at the bottom (see 3rd pic), but it doesn't affect the gel in any way!
For me, this DIY was 100% successful and it was very easy to do as well! Now we can make our own Karma, Comforter, Rose Jam, Grass, Blue Skies, Brightside,... shower gels when we run out of the kitchen ones! πŸ˜…πŸ˜‰πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’ž

See the previous post for instructions and measurements! 😜

After solid shower gels and soap, I was curious about what else I could turn into a shower gel... so I tried my luck with a bubble bar! Here's what I did:
Step 1: Cut up the bubble bar. I used ~40g which was purely experimental but I feel like that's a good amount πŸ€”πŸ˜…
Step 2: Cut it into smaller pieces and pass through a sieve to get really fine bubble bar dust. This took me a while but was totally worth it for the end result!
Step 3: Add unscented shower gel, I used 200g here which filled 2/3 of the bottle... (I wasn't sure how much space the bubble bar dust needed so I wanted to be on the safe side. 240g of unscented gel would probably work for a 250g bottle! πŸ˜‰) Step 4: Stir until the ingredients are well mixed, the mixture will bubble up a little bit while doing that.
Step 5: Let the mixture set for about an hour until the bubbles are gone/until the gel is clear.
Step 6: Fill into a bottle and enjoy! 😜

No Trouble solid perfume

Even though my last post was pretty much self explanatory, Here's some tips if you wanna try this too!
🧑 I heated the wax on an electric wax warmer. The heat was definitely enough and the oil melted quickly so eg. melting it in the microwave would probably be too much for this tiny little bit of product!
🧑 I simply used an empty lip balm tin from lush and cleaned it out before reusing it.
🧑 I'm not sure how long the oil would take to set at room temperature. I waited a little bit, but then got impatient and put it in the fridge. Be aware that when oils are heated and then cooled quickly, their crystal structure can change, causing it to go white (like in this picture). This is just an optical change for me, it still melts fine and I decided I didn't care and still wanted to put it in the fridge. If you don't want the white spot, you should let the oil set at room temperature or maybe just put it in the fridge for a few minutes to speed up the process.
🧑 This picture was taken a few days ago and the middle part doesn't look so white anymore now, so I really don't have a problem with this! πŸ˜‹ Chocolate gets white spots too when it's taken from a warm environment and put in the fridge πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜…

Due to my lack of beard I started thinking about different ways to use the solid beard oil that Lush made as a part of their father's day collection... I really like the scent and thought it would be nice for the ends of my hair for extra moisturize or just the scent really... so here's what I did πŸ‘†πŸΌπŸ˜‰
(I used a wax warmer to melt the oil carefully and not overheat it)
Now I can have this beautiful scent with me wherever I go! 😍🀀

Before actually owning it, I heard that the No Trouble (with Beard and Stubble) was Antiope scented... While they smell really similar, I think No Trouble has a spicier note to it... What do you think, are theae two the same scent? πŸ˜‹πŸ€” #scentfamilyportrait
PS: since I don't have a beard, I thought of a different way to use the oil... all will be revealed soon! 😜🧑

Today is going to be a yellow day. Not only am I going to be wearing one of my new yellow dresses whilst jetting off to Sicily 😎 but I’ve been using a range of yellow products to get my morning in gear. #lush #lushlife #lushcosmetics #lushsoap #lushvalentines #lushbath #lemon #lushshowergel #lushhaul

Here's the final result of my Soap to Shower Gel DIY! My boyfriend loved the creamy consistency that I created by using less of the liquid component and more soap! Swipe to see how thick it actually was! πŸ˜…πŸ’ž
The full recipe for this DIY can be found by following the link in my bio! πŸ˜œπŸ˜‹

Repost of an older DIY video I made, turning soap into shower gel! 🚿 Follow the link in my bio for the full recipe and measurements I used here!
NOTE: I used a LOT if soap compared to the amount of unscented shower gel, which made the end product be almost cream-like (that's how my boyfriend requested it πŸ˜‚). Therefore I used an old Lush pot rather than a bottle; it would have been impossible to squish out of a bottle like that! So think of how thick you want your gel to be amd what container it'd need when trying this DIY! πŸ˜‰πŸ’ž I'll upload another video soon showing how thick exactly this turned out, once it had cooled down! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ˜…

Since you guys loved my last DIY, I'm reposting another one that I did a year ago! Back then I made a shower gel from Fairy Ring soap (Silky Underwear scented) and unscented shower gel. The main reason I did this was the fact that my boyfriend loves the scent of Silky Underwear but doesn't like solid soaps.
Some people don't like using them as body soap as they can be quite drying, and if you're only using them as hand soaps then it's hard to used them all up in time. πŸ™ˆ As a shower gel, you can use them more often and - as you mix the soap with unscented shower gel - it's not as drying on the skin as regular soap!
I'll be uploading the video to this DIY later today and will put the link to a blog post I wrote about it in my bio. The post is written both in German and English and has all the steps as well as the amount of ingredients I used.

So, this was my little lush DIY experiment! πŸ˜‹ See my last 2 posts for the recipe and video on how to turn your solid shower gel into a liquid one! 😜 should I do more DIYs in the future? πŸ˜‹πŸ’ž

Look, it's my solid to liquid shower gel DIY! πŸ˜… Antiope was-solid-but-now-it's-liquid-shower gel smells amazing and is so easy to use! I'm in love! πŸ’›
PS: there's a step by step description and ingredient list on my previous post! πŸ˜‰

Many of you have already guessed it: I made Antiope liquid shower gel! πŸ˜πŸ’› It smells so good and now that's in a bottle, I can easily store it in my bathroom! πŸ˜‹ Here's a Step by Step explanation of how I did it! I'll also be uploading a matching video soon! πŸ˜‰
Step 1: Choose naked shower gel
Step 2: Get some unscented (liquid) shower gel, I used about 150g here
Step 3: Heat the unscented gel over water
Step 4: Meanwhile, roughly chop some naked shower gel (I used a 30g slice)
Step 5: Add the chopped up solid to the warm unscented gel
Step 6: Stir until the solid is completely melted and mixed with the unscented gel
Step 7: Get an empty shower gel bottle, I used an old Lush 250g bottle and washed it with hot water to get any old scents out
Step 8: Pour the mixture into the bottle and let it cool down for a few hours
Step 9: enjoy!
Side note: I improvised with the amounts if products I used but was quite happy how it turned out! Using a bit more naked gel would make the end product thicker. I managed to fill ~2/3 of the bottle here, to get a full one I guess you'd probably need around 200g of unscented shower gel and 40g of the solid!

These pictures are from my first try to make soap into shower gel! Back then I simply grated some Magic Wand soap and mixed it with unscented shower gel - without melting it. The outcome was a rather thick shower cream that I used as a shaving cream!
