A Splurge And A Treat

Recently, I decided to splurge on myself (something I rarely do, especially when it comes to grooming products). Then, right after the splurge, I found something to treat myself with that I couldn’t resist (although the treat does come with a practical side).

Both the treat and the splurge arrived in the mail today.

Splurge and Treat

This is the treat. It’s a shampoo bar from Lush. The idea is that I can wash my hair without having any leftover plastic bottles to recycle. Lush says that this roughly 2.5 inch diameter bar is the equivalent of three bottles of shampoo. I’ll see how it goes.

Jumping Juniper

The bar I bought is called “Jumping Juniper”. It’s a blend of lavender, rosemary, lemon, and lime. Lush says it’s all natural and not tested on animals.

Lush also sells metal tins to keep the shampoo bar protected between uses. Unfortunately, the tins were sold out. Fortunately, we discovered that a leftover metal tin from Zoots edibles is the perfect size. (Now I’m glad that Lush’s tins were sold out, so we could reuse the Zoots tin.)

The splurge is from Harry’s. I found it on their website, when was I checking on my next shipment of blades. It’s a splurge, because I didn’t need it, but it looked cool. It came in this box that reminds me of a box of doughnuts, somehow.

Doughnut Box

Inside the doughnut box is a limited edition, extra-shiny, rainbow-colored metal shaver that will replace my perfectly good orange plastic shaver. (Like I said, I don’t need a new shaver, but I think it’s cool.)

Inside the Box

I couldn’t successfully photograph it, but my shiny new shaver is monogrammed with my initials.
