If you love your bath bombs and fidget spinner bath bars, listen up. One former employee took to Insider to give you the deets on the proper way to shop at the cosmetics store. Check out some of the best tips below.

1. Bubble Bars win. They’re better than Bath Bombs — at least as far as your wallet is concerned. Both products are typically priced between $7 and $9, but Bubble Bars will last for three or four baths, whereas Bath Bombs usually last one bath only.

2. Save your containers. Those black pots are great for repurposing, but they can also get you free stuff. Bring five of the little guys in to your nearest store and get a Fresh Face Mask without spending a dime. Just make sure you keep it in the fridge and use it within three weeks!

3. Go for the gift sets. You probably don’t want to drop a ton of money on a product you’re not sure will work for you (even if Lush does have a pretty rad return policy). Luckily, the company puts smaller sizes of its luxury products inside gift sets, so it’s a great way to try stuff out without having to commit to a giant tub.
