I don't know what it is about Lush but every time I try and walk past the store some invisible force pulls me in...and makes me empty my bank account. Admittedly, it took no persuading to go into the Lush on Oxford Street. Their flagship store is huge, it's spread over three floors with product everywhere you look. A kid in a candy store I certainly was. It would've been rude not to make a purchase or two or five...
Aside from being utterly adorable, the Cream Egg Bubble Bar smells insane. The main note I get from it is the mint but there's supposedly a slight hint of chocolate with the cocoa butter. Mint chocolate is rather appropriate for this time of year... The bubble bars create the silkiest foam and are great for relaxing with. They last a few baths too if you break bits off rather than using the entire thing. I like to think of myself as a bit of a bath alchemist. I mix and match different things...which sometimes makes for a dodgy coloured bath as Sam pointed out when I mixed yellow and pink bath products.
I'm usually more of a shower gel girl than soap but as soon as I smelled the Sea Salted Caramel Soap I knew I needed it. Salted caramel is one of, if not my favourite flavours. I'll eat anything with it in, wear anything that smells like it. Basically, it's a sure fire way of getting me to buy a product. It's been a while since I've used the Lush soaps but I remember they last for ages.
Bath bombs remain one of my favourite products from Lush. There's nothing more relaxing than soaking with one whilst listening to a podcast. The Marigold Flower Bath Bomb smells as though they captured spring. It's fresh whilst remaining warm and is just so pretty to look at. This one is for me but if you were giving it as a gift you can pull out the paper, write a message and replace it for the recipient.
My Floating Flower Bath Bomb appears to have been a victim of the sudden heat. The strange pale shape on top is supposed to be a chrysanthemum dipped in Fairtrade cocoa butter that will float to the surface during your bath. Mine looks a little more like someone flicked porridge from the other side of the room. Nevertheless, this smells unreal. It's a very delicate floral with a sweet undertone. I can only imagine how pretty my bath water will look with this!
This I don't think will be with me much longer, Sam's got his eye on it. I took the Carrot Cake lip scrub with me to Scotland and had him smell it. His eyes lit up. It's wonderful. It's so cinnamon-y and yummy. Honestly, you can exfoliate your lips with a DIY scrub just as well but I love picking these up as a treat and the scents you can get are simply stunning.
