My Lush Haul

Hellooo

Love lush? Of course you bloody well do. I’m that person who can’t walk past the Lush Shop without buying anything, it’s like the smell hypnotises me to go in… I am a huge fan of their products that most of the time leaves you soft and smelling good enough to eat!

I decided to do a post to share my favourite products with you from www.Lush.co.uk

Here’s my ultimate favourite

CINDERS – Bath Bomb

Cinders bath bomb

Now this smells amazing! If your a fan of fruit smells

and a hint of cinnamon you will love this. I have been buying cinders for years now but unfortunately it is only available at christmas (Sad Face) Hint Lush you need to sort this!. The bath bomb is a small Orange ball with cinnamon leafs and fizzes in your bath to leave a warm scent that the ultimate relaxer. Note that this bath bomb has been known to stain my bath a yellow colour but soon comes off!

Available here – Cinders Bath Bomb

PHOENIX RISING – Bath Bomb

Phoenix Rising

This just looks so cool and has a great sent to go along with it as well, another cinnamon scent! This fizzes in your bath turning it a lovely deep purple colour and it left my skin feeling really moisturised after a good soak in the bath, most likely because it is packed with Shea and Cocoa butter! There was also a lovely gold shimmer too that didn’t stick to my skin making me look like an oscar statue. Love It.

GOLDEN EGG – Bath Bomb

Golden Egg

Now This is a new find of mine, the new easter collection has come into store and as soon as I picked it up I was sold. IT SMELLS AMAZING (as does most of the lush stuff but…HEY) Now this is literally a golden egg covered in a gold glitter, so theres my warning (yes this a messy one)  you will be covered in glitter afterwards. This is a bath melt at the start so it makes the bath extremely creamy that adds to the moisturising effect. It then turns into a bath bomb that fizzes and releases a GORGEOUS Honey/Toffee/ Sweet Orange scent. My skin was left glittery and moisturised from the columbian cocoa butter, even though the amazing scent didn’t linger for very long.

Available here – Golden Egg

KARMA BUBBLE BAR – Bubble Bar

Karma Bubble Bar

Now who isn’t a fan of bubbles? Bubble bars are a favourite of mine and this produces LOADS of them! The Karma bubble bar smells very exotic and orangey, the fragrance used is also a perfume so you know it will be good! You crumble this product under the running water and the goodness is released to make fragrant bubbles. This smell lingers on your skin for ages, I always feel like a hippy when I use this. Long live Sweet orange oil, which is soon becoming my favourite.

Available here – Karma Bubble Bar

YUZU AND COCOA – Bubble Bar

YUZU and COCOA

This was the first bubble bar I had ever tried and I have never regretted this purchase.  This is another AMAZING Smell, DO you love jaffa cakes? then this is for you. This jam is packed with cocoa butter and Shea butter and even my beauty fav (coconut oil) which creates a creamy chocolate scent and it is also mixed with citrus oil to reveal a lovely orange scent in the mix and VOILA  you got jaffa cake. This is unbelievably moisturising and gives your skin an instant lift.

Available here – Yuzu and Cocoa bubble bar

WONDER WOOHOO – Bubble Bar

Wonder Woohoo

Another new easter find for me, I do seem to be drawn to a bit of glitter (Guilty) . There seems to be a theme going around this Easter of orange and this is no exception. Packed with mimosa absolute, sandalwood oil and Brazillian orange oil this is what I would like to think Florida would be like if it was well… a bubble bar. It smells exotic and very summery, You do get covered in glitter but the smell makes up for it. I do feel some cocoa butter wouldn’t of gone a miss here though as I was missing the moisturising element after using this,

Available here – Wonder Wahoo

 

YOU’VE BEEN MANGOED –  Luxury bath melt

You'v been mangoed

If your looking for something extra moisturing and smells delicious this is for you. Packed with an exotic fragrance combined with citrus, cocoa butter and mango oils, just smelling this in the store made my mouth water. Once in the bath the water is transformed into a creamy fruity heaven and your skin feels extremely brightened and refreshed, Wish this product was bigger though!

Available here – You’ve been Mangoed

 

SOFT COEUR – Massage bar

Soft Coeur

Another sweet orange oil product and packed with cocoa and shea butters! Amazingly moisturising great for people who have dry skin like me, I used this after a bath using the golden egg as a bath bomb and was left smelling like a jaffa cake from all the sweet orange oil and cocoa butter. My skin was left feeling moist and hydrated. I would avoid using the middle brown bit as it smudges on your skin.

Available here – Soft Coeur

 

LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL – Cleanser

let the good times roll

I was given a sample of this by the lovely people of lush and immediately fell in love with it, it smells like toffee popcorn and even contains popcorn! It’s a gentle cleanser that softens and exfoliates your skin. My face was left super soft with a smell lingering of Golden syrup porridge. I only use a bit of this as I mix it with water to make it more creamy, since I’ve started using this my skin has become clearer and my completion has improved tremendously. Lovely.

Retail Therapy

I am no different than any other woman out there, if I’m feeling down a little bit of retail therapy instantly puts a smile on my face. I thought I would share with you my purchases today.

 I was shopping with my friend today who recommended the Make up brand Sleek available from boots, i was impressed by the range and affordable prices and thought i would give it a go!

The Eyeshadow palette range was the most impressive with a number of colour palletes that i had difficulty choosing. I decided in the end to try au natural as this is the colour ranges i would get the most use out of. This palette comes in a sleek black case containing 12 mineral based eyeshadows and comes with a double ended eyeshadow brush and at the low price of £7.99, I consider this a great buy! See images below.

Next i bought the face contour kit. I have been after a contour palette for a while now and saw the cute compact in the Sleek range and fell in love. They come in three colours Light, medium and Dark. I purchased the Light and this it what it looks like  ( see below) and priced at £6.49 I thought i would give it a try!

After just running out of my foundation I was after a new one and not sure whether I wanted to buy a powder based foundation, after using cream ones for such a long time but with suffering with oily skin, it decided to try this creme to powder based compact foundation. It comes in another cute compact with a mirror and puff. Priced at an average £7.99 i bought the colour Barley it was the lightest shade as trying the others they were all on the orange tinted side and I like to avoid the tangoed look.

And finally my best buy of the day… A NEW PANDORA RING. Im a massive fan of pandora and their collections and a ring is one tot the things i have yet to purchase from Pandora. I was spoilt for choice but settled on the simple pink heart silver ring, which would go lovely with my silver and pink themed pandora bracelet.  At a very reasonalbe £35, I couldn’t resist.
