If you don’t like Lush I would advise you stop reading now!
Brace yourself for some Lush related madness. I love all things Lush honestly, as soon as I walk into any shop I feel like I have been transported into a bath bomb filled heaven. They have so many goodies worth having a nosey at but I also seem to steer towards the bath section. My all time favourite is definitely a tie between the Comforter or the Melting Marshmallow Moment because they both smell like desserts, I am a sucker for the sweet smelling products.
I love when they release their seasonal ranges at Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter. As it is Halloween this month I decided to ‘treat’ myself with some new products because my bath bomb collection was getting dangerously low.
|A sneak peek at what was in my delivery
If you are wondering the pumpkin tea light holder is from Wilkos and it was only a few pounds, it was such a bargain and it looks like its worth more!
Now time for the big reveal…
My box arrived packed full of polystyrene balls and to be honest, I don’t really know what to do with them!?
How cute is this little shimmer bar, I have to admit I bought this thinking it was a bubble bar and I was mistaken! It is actually a bar that you rub on your skin and it leaves and iridescent shimmer as it goes.
“A multitude of iridescent lustres – gold, green, purple and silver – are packed tightly into this bar to adorn skin in shimmer from the first stroke. As illipe and cupuaçu butters gently melt over the body, they soften skin and leave the ecstatically fruity scent of almond, grapefruit and bergamot. Pick it up before a big night out and dance on into the small hours. The ethereal glow of your body might look too magical to be of this world… and perhaps it is.”
I love the descriptions they create to try and entice you in to purchase the products but hey it clearly worked didn’t it. Some of the reviews say that it smells of blackcurrant and is super sweet and that absolutely ticks all the boxes for me.
I laughed so much when I took this bubble bar out of the box because I think I have been sent a cross-eyed cat, poor thing! Literally a perfect fit for a lazy-eyed glasses wearer like me!
“After a busy day whizzing around on a broomstick, ground yourself with olibanum and be spellbound by bergamot. Twitch your nose and breathe in this familiar blackberry scent. Whether in this life or one of the other eight, you’d be a fool to let this pass you by!”
It smells like Snow Fairy which is basically the traditional Lush smell so it is definitely going to be a winner for me!
A good old bath bomb with a cute little ghost on the side, I just had to have it. This one really intrigued me because it contains jelly and it oozes out as the contents fizz around the bath.
“For soaks from the other side, launch this slimer into the water and let the gooey jelly ooze across the surface. Made from brown seaweed, it softens your skin as it goes. If you’re feeling ghoulish, the uplifting tangerine, grapefruit and restorative litsea cubeba oils will have you in high spirits in no time. Take the gunge.”
The reviews for this bath bomb were quite mixed so I thought I’d give it a try to see how I feel about the unusual use of jelly inside a bath product.
Lord of Misrule
A classic from Lush for this time of year and I have never actually bought it so I am super excited to finally buy it.
“Revel in your bath with this mischievous bomb that features a spicy herbal blend of patchouli and black pepper oil. Inspired by the ruler of the pagan Feast of Fools, Lord Of Misrule has a deep green exterior that slowly froths away to reveal a rich, wine-coloured centre. Just like at the Feast of Fools, when the wine starts to flow, the popping candy crackles and the festivities begin…”
Another goodie that is filled with vanilla, I am sure I am going to love it, I mean I’m easily pleased!
True to the name this bath bomb looks like well, a pumpkin. It contains cinnamon and vanilla which are two of my absolute favourite ingredients so it went straight in my (shopping) basket.
“Serve yourself up a slab of sweet pumpkin pie, dripping in spice and sauciness – it’s even more satisfying in bath bomb form. Sweet, comforting vanilla absolute and spicy cinnamon evoke the rich, biscuity fragrance of home-baking and stacked desserts, ensuring that you feel toasty from top to toe. A soak with this pumpkin-shaped bomb is more satisfying than a belly full of pudding.”
My poor little pumpkin took a bit of a bashing on the journey, so his nose looks a little sore but I am sure it will still do the trick in a bath when it’s needed!
Prince of Darkness
Face mask time!! I adore the face masks at Lush. I can’t use many of them because they either aren’t vegan or I end up being allergic to them because I have sensitive skin, so fingers crossed this isn’t going to cause a reaction to my face or I will cry.
“Calling all creatures of the night, we’re on a crazy train, heading straight for scrubbed up skin. Satisfy your need for a bright, matte complexion with this devilishly good facial mask, made with absorbent charcoal to cleanse from the depths. Fine sea salt and lavender oil refresh and balance your skin while Fullers Earth delivers a plumping, boosting effect, without excess moisture. Indulge in a little darkness to bring brightness to all skin tones.”
This is super exciting because it is a completely black mask made with charcoal which is supposedly very good for your skin and it’s a massive trend at the moment. I have been using charcoal nose strips which are fab but a whole face mask seems like something fun to try.
Now that I am all stocked up with some new Lush goodies I am so excited to try them, I don’t even know what my favourite will be.
Until next time,
