Ok I know I’m late to the Lush-Loving party, but I’ve finally arrived people and I’m OBSESSED! To explain myself, I’ve never really been drawn to bath bombs due to the condition and ‘cleanliness’ of my previous student accommodation (If you’re a student – you kno). But now I have my own place with my boyfriend and, more importantly, a clean bath, I WANT ALL THE BATH BOMBS THAT EXIST.
Some of these are from Matt as a birthday present whilst others are gifts to me from me! I just thought this would make a nice little blog post introducing Lush to my blog. God I’m such a newbie. I’m sure many of you have used these products before, let me know which is your fave and what ones I should check out next – you’re the pros!
I don’t think I’ve seen a more photogenic bath bomb in my life. Costing £3.75, this is one of Lush’s cheaper bombs. As you can imagine, this creates a pretty pink colour and leaves a little rose soap floating in the bath. This is created to wave goodbye to anxious, tense and stressy vibes with a special blend of Jasmine, yang ylang and sage.
This is a Japanese inspired bath bomb with it translated into english meaning ‘Cherry Blossom’. Admittedly it isn’t one of the most exciting bath bombs to look at when you compare it to intergalactic, but that doesn’t mean it’s not pretty. It fizzes into a white/cream foam with specs of iridescent pink and green scattered around. The scent is floral and fruity due to it containing mimosa and jasmine. Have you tried this one?
I find the smell so distinctive with this one. Let alone the colours! It’s just so fun! I logged onto the Lush website and was shook. Royally, shook. 22 ingredients in one bomb! No wonder the smell is so unique. Mainly scented with vanilla which is just a comfort blanket in a scent right? This was my first ever lush bath bomb i tried and I feel like it’s really set the bar high! What was your first bath bomb?
Whoosh Shower Jelly
Full of grapefruit, honey water & lime, this is just the type of shower scents I love. I’m all for citrusy, wake-me-up kinda smells and the lady who worked in Lush Portsmouth knew the exact scent I needed. Whoosh has lasted me well over a month now and it’s still got a way to go before running out. A common misconception is to rip off parts of the jelly and use in small quantities. This is basically breaking and ruining the product. It’s best to scoop all of it out and rub directly onto your skin with warm water so it lathers and acts as a shower jel! It can also double up as bubble bath too – although I’d recommend not running it directly under the tap as it can break a bit (oops). Swirling it around would do just perfectly!
Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub
I have a feeling this might’ve been a limited edition product or discontinued as I can’t see to find it online anywhere! I tested (smelled) all of their original lip scrubs and preferred this by miles. It’s sweet but without the sickly vibe to it, more fruity. Perfect. I use this to exfoliate my lips and get rid of the dry skin and to prep my lips before I’m off out or at an event of some sort. If I want them juicy – using this and rubbing gently with a face cloth after works amazingly!
