I am a big fan of long baths – candles, bubbles, laptop, some adele, good oils, perfect. Baths are not only an opportunity for me to take some real ‘me time’ but they are also an opportunity to go pamper mad, which is never a bad idea. As somebody that looks forward to bath time it’s no surprise that I am in love with Lush products. It’s actually been a little while since I got anything new from the Naked store so this month, I thought I’d pick some good’uns that I fancied and tell ya what I thought.
Lush are known for their incredible Bath Bombs and this month I went for just one – Dragon Egg: so good, so citrusy and the bomb, although depressing to get it all over with in one go, goes a long way, creating bubbles, amazing silky oils and secret glimpses of popping candy. Definitely a morning glory product.
Ladybird Bubble Bar: These are my faaavs. Not only can you reuse until your heart’s content, but the scents are out of this world. Ladybird was a Mother’s Day edition and smells like bubblegum heaven. Filled with esssential Geranium and Peppermint oils, this one is a winner for a relaxing bath full of bubblegum pink bubbles. It breaks my heart that I can’t eat it.
Mmmelting Mashmellow Moment: Speaking of not being able to eat it, this tiny luxery bath oil of joy, can be placed in the bath, transforming the water into a mouth watering scented sanctuary. One for sweet tooths. Although small, they are much cheaper than other Lush products, meaning you don’t feel too guilty stocking up on a couple. My skin felt incredible for ages after – definitely my favourite of the lot.
Milky Bath Bubble Bar: I’m a massive milk fan and had high hopes that this bubble bar, would leave my skin feeling creamy and smelling devine. Although the bubbles were impressive and they do look super cute, it didn’t do as much for my skins as I’d have hoped it to.
Cup O’Coffee Exfoliating Mask: I ventured out from the bath bombs this month, and decided to treat myself to a face mask. Lush have a great range of exfoliators but as a coffee lover, I thought that this would be exactly what I need to liven up my face, sort out my dry skin and settle my caffeine craving. It hasn’t yet disappointed. With 150g, I know it’s going to go a long way. I can feel the difference when on my skin and the ground coffee beans make for perfect exfoliators. One thing I should say, is that it does smell a little pungent and not as satisfying as walking into Starbucks and getting a wooft of coffee. For sure, it is still a winner and I look forward to hunting down some more pots to collect (and nab for a free pot after collecting my fifth)
Lush pride themselves on using the freshest and most ethically sourced ingredients. All products are 100% vegetarian, are handmade days before sale and are packaged and sent in biodegradable materials. Plus, the shop smells like actual heaven. What’s not to like?!
Until the next time I spend all of my wages in the name of bath time and beauty,
