I’m sitting here in my bedroom, fairy lights on, mulled wine in hand and i’ve just tucked into a camembert shared with my family for lunch. It’s definitely beginning to feel wintery. As the air is getting colder outside, for ultimate cosy vibes I find myself popping into Lush and indulging in bath time much more frequently at this time of year. Recently I’ve picked up quite a few bits so I’ve combined them into a Lush product review / mini haul, in case you’re wondering what you’re next purchase should be.
Sea Salted Caramel Soap – £4.25 / 100g
This smells delicious. Like caramel, but a really sophisticated version, without that sickly sweetness that’s often found in caramel products. Although I love the smell of this I find the consistency difficult to deal with. The soap doesn’t lather up very well at all and for this reason it is quite difficult to use. I have found it to be better in the bath than shower though, if you just can’t resist the smell!
Brightside Bubble Bar – £4.95
The sister to one of my favourite Lush products, The Comforter Bubble Bar. I knew I was going to be a fan of this. Crumbling off as much or little as you please each use means more bath for your buck. With notes of Sicilian mandarin, bergamot and tangerine essential oils this is the ultimate uplifting bath product. Love!
The Experimenter Bath Bomb – £4.25
I loved how this looked pre-bath. A giant pink, blue, purple and yellow bath bomb that dissolves into a rainbow of colours as you plunge it into your bath water. The colours are just beautiful when they are swirling around but they quickly merge together to a murky green/grey colour. Not quite as appealing, but the tiny glitter particles running through make up for it somewhat. Containing Vetivert Oil, which helps to nourish weak and tired skin, this bath bomb leaves you jumping out of the tub with the softest skin that’s nourished and refreshed.
The Comforter Shower Cream – £4.95 / 100g bottle
I’m into my sweet scents. Vanilla and coconut smells sit at the top of my list. Super sweet, super comforting and laced with a fine shimmer, if you’re not into your sugary smells, this probably isn’t for you. Containing Almond Oil to hydrate, The Comforter Shower Cream cleanses and nourishes simultaneously. Lush never miss a trick when it comes to looking after your skin. The price tag for Lush shower gels is high for the high street. With a small 100g bottle starting at £4.95 and going all the way up to a hefty £27.95 for 1kg of product.
Yuzu and Cocoa Shower Cream – £4.95 / 100g bottle
Yuzu and Cocoa is another shower cream on the sweet side of the scale. Containing uplifting and refreshing Grapefruit Oil and aromatic Cocoa Absolute that gives off a strong rich chocolatey aroma. The combination smells just like a Terry’s Chocolate Orange! To add to the chocolatey aroma and provide a conditioning element for the skin, cocoa butter is also added in the blend. Yuzu and Cocoa holds a strong yellow colour, that doesn’t dilute much when combined with water. It left me feeling a little like I wash washing with yellow acrylic paint!
Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion
I couldn’t find this on the Lush website, sorry to be most unhelpful but it must have been discontinued. I can’t say this is a huge shame, I’m not really a fan of this. To keep it short and sweet, there are much better Lush moisturisers out there.
I’m addicted to these tiny green bursts of goodness. It’s not actually glittery -blame my Golden Egg that i’ve had since Easter and am still hesitant to use!
Skin softening Mango Butter, moisturising Shea Butter and hydrating Avocado Butter mean this is an absolute treat for you skin. The smell of this is just divine, the kind where you inhale one breath and instantly feel relaxed. Think luxury spa. Notes of lemongrass, lemon, lime and of course, mango, fill the room and linger on the skin all day. I can’t quite believe this is the cheapest of all the products mentioned as it is by far my favourite. And the most nourishing to the skin. If you’re in need of the ultimate de-stress, this is the one for you.
I hope this Lush product review was somewhat helpful. Are there any other You’ve Been Mangoed lovers out there?!
