I was out for lunch with Iga and Stef the other day to Jamie’s Italian (review to follow) and since I was in town I decided to go into Lush and treat myself to a couple of things from there. I may have got a bit carried away as I left the store with a bag of eight items, not the couple I intended on. Oh well, never mind!I have loved Lush for many years as they sell fantastic products as well as being ethical, I picked up a couple of bubble bars that I’ve tried before and loved as well as some new bath bombs and bath oils. So which ones ended up in my basket?
Creamy Candy – Bubble Bar (£2.95)
I love this one as it smells like Snow Fairy (my all time favourite Lush scent, please never discontinue this one). The sweet candy smell is maybe not for everyone but the smell lingers in your bathroom even well into the next day.
Big Bang – Bubble Bar (£3.75)
This has a lovely citrus smell, it also has avocado butter in it to soften your skin. I’m looking forward to using this one.
Intergalactic – Bath Bomb (£3.95)
I have seen pics of how this bath bomb turns bath water into an amazing array of colours and after using it I wasn’t disappointed as it looked really pretty. Intergalactic has an uplifting peppermint scent and lots of gold glitter through it, so hopefully you don’t mind spending an extra 5 minutes cleaning your bath to remove the glitter that has stayed after your bath water has gone down the drain.
Sakura – Bath Bomb (£3.50)
This has quite a delicate smell of jasmine and orange flower to it but I’ve heard not to expect a colour change to the water with this one as it just leaves the bath water clear.
Mmmelting Marshmallow Moment – Bath Oil (£2.00)
I bought two of these as they smell so good! The pink and yellow colours as well as the sweet smell just reminds you of buying a bag of sweets when you were younger. It has extra virgin coconut oil in it to soften your skin so I have high hopes that it will leave my skin silky smooth.
Milky Bath – Bubble Bar (£3.75)
I have bought this one before and loved the orange oil scent of it as well as the fact it gives you lots of bubbles in your bath. Your skin also feels really soft after using it and the scent lingers for a good few hours too.
Lava Lamp – Bath Bomb (£3.95)
This has a lovely orangey smell to it and when it’s put in your bath water it produces purple oil to give off a lava lamp effect. Since buying it I’ve heard people say that although it’s a nice product, the purple oil leaves a lot of mess in your bath and you will need to clean it once you are out. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a relaxing bath before scrubbing your bath clean, will see what I think of it myself when I use it.
