Lush Spring Collection

Hey All

Last week L and I headed to Lush Cardiff to see what treats they have in store this year for spring. We were excited to head down and stock up on our favourite shower gel from last year Yummy Mummy (here's our review from last year of it. It still has the same scent but is now a shower cream and slightly shimmery).

So onto this years treats. As soon as I saw the Happy Mother's Day set I had to get it for my mum. It's an amazing tin which comes with paper impregnated with seeds which you grow in the tin after. What a great idea to use the packaging. It also has a great mix of products including the amazing sunflower bubble bar below which smells like sherbet lemons (I think this one is an exclusive but rumour is it may appear in the kitchen. I'll be snapping it up if it does!). Definitely a great treat for mum's or yourself.

Another amazingly packaged item is the Good Egg! How cute is he, I want it for myself. It also includes the amazing humpty dumpty bath bomb that L and I instantly fell in love with and had to buy. It lasts for 3 baths. This one contains a great mix of bubble bars and bath bombs.

Along with Humpty Dumpty I had to buy Golden Egg. Look at the glitter on this bad boy!! Golden Egg is a bath bomb melt. It has a luxurious coating packed full of cocoa butter to soften the skin and then has a bath bomb inside. It smells amazing like sweet toffee and cocoa butter too. It's amazing!!

Ultraviolet is a new bubble bar added to the mix. Check out that blue shimmer and amazing colour. The girls get the most amazing amount of bubbles. We got given a little tip which was to buy a cheap sieve crumble the bath bomb and then run it under the hot tap to get the best bubbles and smell released. Ultraviolet joins the bubble bars below to create and amazing set.

This little guy the Ladybird bubble bar was a big hit with L (she used him last night so expect a full review soon) and I. L couldn't resist buying one and I'll be popping in to grab one soon. He smells like peppermint and produces an amazing red bath.

Somewhere over the rainbow was a instant hit with L and she was very pleased it was in her goodie bag as she was debating buying it but resisted at the last minute. It's soooo pretty. We weighed it to see how much the whole thing would cost but unfortunately couldn't leave with it. Apparently this is a great one to clean you're make up brushes with too.

This is bouncing bunny how cute is this little guy!! He's a bath jelly which I'm still trying to get used too I currently have one and spend a lot of a shower chasing it round the tub. This one smells amazing though like chocolate orange so I'm excited to try it. I'm going to pop it in the freezer as apparently that makes for a great treat post exercise aching muscles!

And last but by no means least L and I's favourite item. We've both bought one so far but will be back for more it's Yummy Mummy. This is my all time favourite shower gel. It has an amazing sweet almost strawberry scent but it's not cheap or sickly smelling as you'd expect. The scent also lasts on your skin so long!!! If you've not tried it I'd definitely recommend getting one.

DSC_2591

Expect lots of lush over the next few weeks as L and I couldn't resist buying lots of the collection whilst we were there! Have you grabbed anything yet?

Love M

Lush Baths

Hey all.

Hope you've had great weekends. Mine was spent in Oxford which was a great break away. I'm a massive fan of lush products and have been in there a lot lately so thought I'd share a few of my new discoveries with you. I'm a huge lush fan and love a good soak in the bath.


The first product I purchased was You've been mangoed. I bought this when L and I went to a spring event. I've not tried any of the bath melts before as I'm a bit of a sucker for pretty things and these just don't draw my eye. My skin has been so dry lately (probably not helped by my laziness at moisturising!) that I thought I'd give a bath melt a go. Plus the mango smelt amazing.


As I hadn't used one before I was a bit dubious at how it would melt in the bath and whether it would leave me and the bath feeling greasy and like I'd want a shower after. I dropped it in the bath and it slowly melted into the water. The bath smelt amazing. The colour remained as normal and my worries of a slimey bath were wrong. You could definitely feel the cocoa,al avocado and mango butters had been to work after getting out. My skin felt amazing and soft and not greasy. The lemon and lime oils helped balance out the mango so it smelt sweet and fresh but not sickly. 



I'll definitely be back for more of these. I may try using half next time and combining it with a bath bomb? Have you tried doing this? Any combination recommendations? 

The next lush product I treated myself too was the honey bee bath bomb. After a hen weekend I was exhausted and wanted something to relax with. I love honey scented things and for a long time honey I washed the kods was always in my shower.  I love the yellow and browns of the bath bomb. It's got a lovely sweet honey scent and also contains sweet orange oil. The bath bonb itself has rhassoul mud in to help cleanse the body (I probably needed something detoxifying after my weekend but cleansing was good enough!).


In the bath it fizzed away to leave a yellow water. Which you'd expect from a honey scented bath bomb but there is just something about yellow water that I don't find appealing. It left the bath smelling lovely and was relaxing.



The last bath bomb I picked up was big blue. I tend to go for more sweet frangrances but fancied a different one. Big Blue contains arame seaweed which is rich in vitamins and minerals and also contains sea salt, lemon and lavender oil.
 The lavender oil isn't over powering and the bath bomb has a lovely fresh scent.


I love the colour this bath bomb turns the bath. It's an amazing lush blue and leaves me dreaming of a beach and water that colour. It releases the seaweed into the bath which is in slightly big pieces for my liking as it made for a messy clean up and they were hard to get down the plug hole. This bath was also amazing as it was in a hotel and a roll top bath!




All these bath products were £3.35. I love trying new lush bath bombs. What's your recommendation? 

Love M

Lush Golden Egg Bath Melt


Hey All

Lush Golden Egg is a bath bomb melt in their current Easter range and one we were lucky enough to get to try after attending an event (you can read more on it here and see the amazing carrot soap!)

Golden Egg is an amazing gold glitter egg for Easter and retails for £3.75. It's a Lush Bath Bomb melt so doesn't fizz quite as much as a normal bath bomb and provides a little bit of bubbles and some moisturiser. It would make a great alternative to an Easter egg for someone that doesn't eat chocolate.

022

It's got an amazing sweet toffee scent to it but also has bergamot and sweet orange oil so it's not sickly sweet and has a refreshing hint to it. To make it a melt it contains cocoa butter (which goes great with the toffee scent) and olive oil to leave your skin feeling amazing after a bath. Great for these grey days when you don't want to be cold and apply a moisturiser post bath!

You can see how glittery the egg is, and it comes off onto your skin easily so definitely not one to touch until the last possible moment!
I just dropped it straight into a hot bath and watched the magic slowly unfold.





This one took some time to melt away and made the bath a lovely sunshine yellow with a few bubbles. It was really moisturising too and is my favourite thing about Lush bath products as they make my skin feel so much nicer! Even though it's really glittery it leaves the bath looking shimmery and pretty but you're not left looking like a glitter ball when you get out.



Have you tried any of the Easter Range?

Lush have so many lovely products to try at the moment!


Love L and M

Lush Mother's Day and Spring Event


Hi there!

Last Monday we were lucky enough to be invited to a Lush blogger event, we always love attending these as they're a fun way to get to know all of the products and play around with them, as well as meeting lots of other bloggers too as there is always a big group of us!

The store is always such a happy and colourful place, its a pleasure to visit.

The latest range of Spring and Mother's Day themed products are so beautiful - the golden eggs and the carrots are so adorable! Who isn't drawn to something so glittery as the Golden Egg??


UntitledUntitled

L was massively surprised that she really loved the smell of the Carrot Soap, she would have happily taken home a whole carrot!

The Mother Superior bubble bars were also amazing - how do they make them look so cute with their faces!

We also loved the Instagram frame that they had in store, you just know we were loving this. It's such a great idea for us bloggers who spend so much time on social media!

We also spent some time trying out the new scents that Lush have created, it's so interesting to see how the smell changes on different peoples skin and reacts to create different smells.

We both picked up a few things from the store (as always!) but were lucky enough to come away with a few goodies too.

Yummy Mummy is a gorgeous lilac shower gel, Secret Garden is a super cute bath bomb with flowers in and Golden Egg is just the most gorgeous glittery egg that I can't take my eyes off!

M has already used Secret Garden and here are some quick snaps:

The colours are so pretty! The pink and green are beautiful, you can't go wrong with swirls like these.

Have you been stocking up on the new Spring products from Lush? Which one is your favourite?
