If you know me in person, you will know that I’m a HUGE lush fan. I’ve bought their products for years (since 2010).
And, I love everything they stand for – cruelty free, the #LushNaked revolution, 100% vegetarian and their spa treatments (OMG – pricey but well worth the money – especially the Comforter treatment – more on that here!)
Any who, I picked up a few pieces from their Valentine’s Day collection and from their normal range.
Up first we have the American Cream shower gel – 100g for £5.95. It’s said to be cleansing – fresh strawberries and sweet vanilla that go together like rama lama lama ka dinga da dinga dong. Topped with softening carrageenan (never heard of this ingredient until now) extract and herbal clary sage. It also has fresh orange juice in the mix (which seems bizarre but it works!)
The second shower gel I purchased was Rose Jam (100g for £5.95) – which isn’t part of the Valentine’s Day range, however, I’ve heard really great things about it, so I wanted to give it a go. It smells divine!
“Turkish rose absolute and conditioning argan oil dance their dizzyingly floral fragrance over skin, leaving a gentle, lingering perfume behind.
The petals used to make exquisite rose oil and rose absolute are picked by hand at dawn, in Senir, Turkey, when they are at their most fragrant and have the most beautiful scent.”
As well as being made with sweet vanilla pod infusion, combined with cleansing Sicilian lemon oil and fresh goji berry juice.
I love anything and everything that’s rose and vanilla scented so this one is a winner in my eyes!
I also picked up Damaged Hot Oil Treatment (£6.95) for hair. I was really intrigued by Lush’s hair range – there’s SO many products I want to try!
My hair has been a little damaged from the heat of my hair-dyer, straightener and curling tong, so it needed a bit of TLC. This worked wonders of my hair – it feels so soft, shiny and healthy after using it.
And, it was really fun to use – you pour boiling water into a mug and then stir the formula until you get a gloopy (such a weird word) mixture, you then apply that to dry hair and leave it in for twenty minutes before rinsing out.
Then I picked up the Aubergine emoji bath bomb (limited edition), which is priced at £3.95.
Lush say “When you need something that really hits the spot, pop this bath bomb into the water and enjoy a steamy soak with uplifting bergamot, fruity ho wood and saucy litsea cubeba. This tongue in cheek product shoots green and blue foam from both ends so you can give someone the gift of a fast fizzing tip this Valentine’s Day.”
This was really pretty to watch dissolve it the bath, almost therapeutic seeing all the colours come alive! It also had glitter in the formula which glistened on my skin when I came out of the bath.
Lastly I picked up a BB Seaweed Fresh face mask (priced at £8.50) as I had 5 pots to return which meant I got a free face mask (winner winner, chicken dinner *does a little dance*)!
I forgot to include the mask in the photo’s but I thought I would talk about it anyway!
“This gentle seaweed softener wants to cherish your skin with protective honey and Fair Trade organic aloe vera. Sail away on waves of refreshing and regenerative rosemary oil. Kaolin will cleanse the skin as millet flakes gently exfoliate. Adorn your face with a layer of this calming rose petal and toothed wrack seaweed mask, then put your feet up for 10 minutes before gently rinsing away.”
It’s so lovely to use and I feel great putting natural ingredients on my skin!
