LUSH REVIEW: The Sacred Lotus Bath Bomb!

So this has got to be my favourite bath bomb of all time! This was the most satisfying bath bomb to watch and the pay off was ridiculously amazing.

We’ll start with how it looks before being put in the water. The bath bomb essentially looks like it has been cut in half to reveal this amazing shimmer ball in the middle. Lush then added petals on the side of the bath bomb, which I knew before buying would come away to create amazing colours. The smell of this bath bomb is what you would expect from the name of it, very floral. I love them scents as it’s such a fresh yet sweet smell that sticks to you when you come out of the bath.

When you initally put it in the bath, the smell just fills the room! These lovely swirls of purple float around the bath as the petals come off and create such a lovely pattern. This is quite a slow fizzer but so worth it in the end.

I was really interested in what colour the yellow and purple would create at the end of the fizzing but it turned out to be a lovely pale pink which was so pretty. It also had the best shimmer I have ever seen. When you moved the water around the shimmer would move with it. However, the shimmer didn’t stick to you like some of the others do so I was really happy about that! Wish I could’ve got a real picture of the shimmer but it is such a lovely surprise at the end!

Hands down, my favourite bath bomb wish it was in more than just Oxford Street! Will definitely be buying this again.

Valentines Product: Roses All The Way, Lush Soap!

Hey guys, I thought I’d spend the day relaxing but I didn’t forget to review the amazing Rose-shaped soap that Lush brought out for Valentines day. I’m pretty sure there will be some of these left in store today and definitely online.

So this beautiful soap has a Turkish Rose Oil scent to it and it is amazing, reminds me of the Jason and the Argan Oil shampoo bar and that is definitely one of my favourite scents. The idea for this soap was inspired by Alice in Wonderland, each soap was hand painted that’s why they have a white base.

I think that is a nice touch and makes the soap that much more significant. The design is beautiful especially for Valentines day!

So, I decided to try this soap out when I had a bath to fully review the product. The soap itself creates a really nice white lather which felt very moisturising on the skin. The scent was amazing when on the skin and really did stay when I came out of the bath. I never thought a soap could be so relaxing! Would recommend you grab one of these while you still can.

LUSH REVIEW #2: Five Favourite Products!

So since everyone enjoyed my previous lush post I thought I would do another one since I adore the brand so much. These are my top five favourite products at the moment, this probably will change but I would say this is a good range of products for anyone who is just starting out or hasn’t tried them before as they’re all very nice! I’ll order this from my least favourite to my most favourite to make it interesting.

5.93,000 Miles Shower Jelly 100g = £3.75:

93,000 miles

So my boyfriend being the lovely person he is, decided to buy me this as a surprise when he was visiting me and I had a bad back. If you’ve never came across a shower jelly before, you basically either break a bit off and use it like you would a soap or go for it and use the whole thing as a soap. Its main ingredients are Eucalyptus and Peppermint Infusion, Cinnamon Leaf Oil and Peppermint Oil. Eucalyptus is used to aid fevers, aching joints and for skin problems as this product suggests on the packaging, it is really good for those who work out to have in a after work out shower or even if you just have an achy back (like me). Also, the woody/spicy aroma of the cinnamon leaf oil works to fight fatigue and also is used to stimulate the skin and improve circulation. This little jelly does more than just wash, it actually does help when you’re feeling down. The only thing that puts this one at the bottom of my favourites is it has a very particular smell, the eucalyptus is often used in throat lozenges for its herbal benefits, which is why the smell reminds me of herbal tablets. Overall, I would say that this shower jelly does help with muscle pain, especially after a hard day and allows me to go to sleep not aching!

4. Rose Jam Bubbleroon Bubble Bar £3.75:IMG_0265

So this one I bought for the amazing Rose Jam scent that lush have put in a lot of their products, it is the most sweet and floral scent ever! I put it in my university room and seriously it has made the whole room smell perfumed, it’s so nice. So you use this sweet bubbleroon by breaking off a part and crumbling it under the running water of a bath to make amazing and sweet smelling baths! The main ingredient which greats the beautiful smell is Rose Absolute, this is used by aroma therapists to restore balance and lift mood so is good if you’re having a hard day. I’ve put it here because I absolutely love the smell and it is the best thing when I want a nice hot bath to help lighten my mood.

3. Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar £6.50:

IMG_0266

So this is another one that my boyfriend has to be given credit for! It is one of my all-time favourites now because it is so nice and eases so much tension in my back. So the best way to use a massage bar is warm it up a tiny bit and then just massage it into your skin, with this one, use the darker side as it works like deep heat and stimulates the circulation. The peppermint and cinnamon oils work to help the aches and pains also so this one is amazing for me. However, if you don’t like the smell of cinnamon I wouldn’t recommend as this one has a very strong scent. This is amazing though and I really need to get another one as I’ve used most of mine already!

2. Seanik Shampoo Bar £5.95:

IMG_0268

This one is looking a bit sad in the picture because of how much I’ve used it but it’s because it is amazing for my hair. You use shampoo bars by creating a lather in your hands as you would a soap and then rubbing it into your hair, or by just scrubbing the bar on your head which is always fun! The Seanik shampoo bar is good for very flat and fine hair like mine as it creates natural waves as if contains nori seaweed, sea salt and mimosa absolute. My hair actually feels bouncy for once in my life and with this, I use less conditioner as it is very nice to the hair and makes it feel softer too. It has lasted a long time as well, I’ve has this one for about 5 weeks and wash my hair probably 5 times a week and it’s still got a normal shape to it and a lot more washes to go! A really good, fresh-scented shampoo bar.

1.Snow Fairy Shower Gel 250g £7.95:

IMG_0267

Okay, this will always be my favourite product, a lot of people stock up on this when it comes to Christmas because it is such an amazing scent. It smells of candyfloss and honestly, makes me so happy when I use it. It’s just an uplifting smell and it stays on you for absolutely ages, the actual shower gel is very cleansing as well! I just can’t say any more about it really, it’s just the best.

LUSH REVIEW: Cupcake face mask!

Hey Guys!

So since I haven’t been posting as much as I would’ve liked to I wanted to kick off with a review on my absolute favourite lush product. I know this isn’t a seasonal one but it’s just so good and I had to share!

 IMG_0185 IMG_0186

So Cupcake is a fresh face mask from LUSH, the natural cosmetic store. The mask is made with all natural ingredients and is just the best. It’s especially made for oily skin and “teenage” skin (which I have been having quite a bit recently), so if you break out a lot this mask is perfect for you! It’s main ingredients are cocoa butter, linseed and cocoa powder which moisturises the face and gives it the lovely chocolatey smell that is just amazing, so good you will want to eat it (but please don’t).

To use the product it’s best to wash your face first so that it is clear of makeup and so that the mask has a clear base to stick on to. Then, put quite a thick layer of the face mask all over your face, if you do have oily skin try to focus on your t-zone as much as possible. Then you have to wait until the mask has completely hardened… taking selfies to send to your housemates is optional but I did it anyways!

IMG_0166

This should take 5 to 10 minutes so just enjoy the smell and destress yourself for a bit. After this you can just wash it off with warm water and feel the difference, you’ll feel how smooth your skin is pretty much immediately!

So I hope you found this interesting and let me know if you have any ideas or requests!

Thanks
