Lush Haul

I'm never sure what to think when others put up haul posts, sometimes I think it's an excuse to show how much money you have to spend on things you don't need...but then why shouldn't you buy what YOU want with YOUR money?! Maybe that question is a whole post in itself!

I realised I'd bought a few things from Lush in the last few weeks and what other word was there to call it but a haul? I've really been enjoying using them all as they aren't products or scents I have tried before so I wanted to share my thoughts.

Lush Snowman Shower Jelly

Hey all

As you can probably tell from my last few posts I've been loving the Lush Christmas and Halloween range and have lost a lot of my wages to it!!! Today is the Snowman Shower Jelly. I think shower jellies are a love hate. My first pot I wasn't convinced on then by the second I was hooked. I love them. As expected they are slippery little things but they lather up well and smell delicious so I can't resist them! The snowman is no exception!

The Snowman smells so good! I knew straight away L would love his scent but she's not totally convinced on texture. This little guy is packed with lemon, bergamot and buchu oil. It's got an amazing fresh citrus scent to it.

I tend to break my shower jellies up into smaller pieces so they aren't so big and slippery or you do sometimes end up chasing it around the bath tub! I have had one shoot straight out of my bath!! They really lather well and like all lush products leave a great scent on the skin. Another tip you can see on the tub that I like to use is to freeze a few pieces so that after a long day I can massage it into my legs!!

As an extra bonus the tubs also count to getting a free face mask!

Are you a shower jelly fan?

Lush Halloween and Christmas 2016!

Whenever that Lush invite pops up in our inbox to see the new products we get saving the penny's and get excited to get stuck into lots of new goodies! L couldn't make it this time so I popped along on my own excited to stock up on my favourite from last year yog nog soap (only to find heartbreak as it's not made this year!!! Why lush why!! But the lovely ladies on twitter have put in a request to lush kitchen so I'm crossing everything!!)

Annnyways, there are plenty of new goodies I still had to pick up!

Lush - Five Gold Rings Bubble Bars

Hey all!

Christmas is getting SO close now and I cannot wait for the festivities to start. One of my favourite things is pampering over the Christmas period, not only is it great timing for the party season but also when your skin needs a little extra help in the colder months.

A bath is a great way to start - 5 Gold Rings from Lush is the perfect product.


It's quite simple really, there are five super sparkly golden rings on a string that mean you can have 5 super sparkly bath times! 5 baths for the price of one is great value for money in my opinion.

All you need to do is crumble one of the bars under running water for a bubbly bath filled with Fair Trade sweet vanilla and the obvious super sparkly gold glitter that takes over your bathroom!


Each ring is infused with skin softening illipe butter and moringa oil to uplift, it also contains a product called benzoin resinoid which I have to say I've never heard of before.

Lush has a wonderfully helpful website though and clicking on it gives me this description:

'We use benzoin resinoid (Styrax benzoin) to deeply cleanse and soothe skin, add shine to hair, to ease muscles, and to give skin a sweet, lingering vanilla and balsamic aroma.' 

Well you learn something every day don't you??

This is what the bubble bar looks like when you crumble it under the water...



It's lovely and yellow gold and a happy uplifting colour. My skin also felt amazing as soon as I'd finished the bath and felt so much smoother and hydrated.

Although you do need to watch out for getting the glitter EVERYWHERE!



5 Gold Rings comes in at £4.95, so that's only £1 a bath - well worth the money!

What do you think of this bubble bar? Will you be snapping them up?

Lush Christmas Collection 2015

Hey All

A few weeks ago we were invited to see the new Christmas collection. L and I are both Lush fans so knew straight away we had to go. I always love the Lush Christmas range as who doesn't want a nice relaxing bath especially when it's all cold outside.

The Christmas range includes a whole selection of products from bath bombs to face masks to shower jelly's and much much.


Christingle is a product we both loved straight away, we always love fresh mint scents and are big fans of Mask of Magmaminty (review here). The body conditioners are a great products as it's applied in the shower and saves having to wait around for body lotions to sink it when it's cold! I love Ro's Argan but this is even better!


The festive face mask is Cranberry which L couldn't resist picking up and we tested them out the other day. It's so lush and smells great. It's a perfect winter face mask as it's nourishing and has lots of antioxidants!

Lush Old Father Time Soap

Lush always put amazing detail into everything! How amazing is this soap. The new shop fit of Lush Cardiff also means that you can see the amazing soaps all set up better! I couldn't resist popping back last week and grabbing some yog nog soap! That stuff smells amazing!

Santa's Belly Shower Jelly

Santa's Belly and Snowman Shower Jelly

At the last lush event we went to we couldn't resist purchasing Lush Shower Jelly's for the first time. You can see L's review of needles and pine here. They have two Christmas specials, Santa's Belly and Snowman, in store they had a giant Santa's  belly. I loved just playing with it!! The shower jellys are such a fun gift and the snowman is actually snowman shaped!

Bar humbug Lush bubble bar

At the event there was also a chance to try making your own bubble bar. You can do parties in Lush and make bath bombs and stuff which would be a great birthday party or hen do event. It was surprisingly hard to make it look as good as they do! L didn't get the chance so I shared mine so she could try it. You easy get two baths out of these! I love combining a bath bomb and bubble bar for the ultimate bath!!

It's Christmas Deer Lush Gift

It's Christmas Deer lush gift

Lush do amazing Christmas gifts! I've been lucky enough to be given one before, I love all there gift sets and they make amazing presents as they're great for lush lovers or for people who aren't there yet to try new products! One of the great things I love is the amazing packaging as it means you can reuse them and it doesn't go to waste! One of my favourites is It's Christmas Deer. How lush is that tin!! 

Have you tried any of the new items yet?

Love L and M
