It was this time last year when I started to re-discover LUSH, and I have been pretty addicted ever since. However, I recently realised that there’s a whole different level of LUSH worshipping and all you have to do is go on Instagram and do a search for the lush hashtag to see how much of a fan some people are, it’s incredible, I never knew!
Anyway, it was last year’s Valentine’d Day Range at LUSH that captured me back in to the brand. Before that, I had tried plenty of bath bombs, all of which made me itch. Although I still have to be cautious of some bath bombs, I have learned of the new and improved formulas, and the variety of products meant that I could get on that bandwagon once again.
There has been teasers on the new LUSH collection just before it’s launch this weekend and I’ve been on the website to check out the new arrivals. Here’s what’s in store at LUSH this Valentine’s!
Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar:
I saw this a few weeks ago when I was looking up Japanese LUSH products. I don’t remember what led me to do this but I wanted to see if there was anything different to the products they sell in UK stores. The Unicorn Horn was one of the things I saw and I thought it looks so cool. I’m happy to see this bubble bar as part of the Valentine’s Day collection! I believe the actual bubble bar itself is longer than shown in the picture, and resembles more like a unicorn horn. It has got pretty rainbow colours, covered in the right amount of shimmer and finished off with candy stars. It has lavendar, neroli and ylang-ylang in this bubble bar.
Lonely Heart Bubble Bar:
This gold shimmery heart is a bright, vibrant red on the inside. I’m not sure what I think of all that gold lustre… it makes the bath water look nice but the shimmer dust gets everywhere! Lonely Heart is made of refreshing bergamot, rose absolute, and lemongrass oil. I don’t know, I think I might give this one a miss.
Heart Throb Bubbleroon:
Bubbleroons are similar to bubble bars in the way that you use them but bubbleroons are a body conditioner that contain organic shea butter which makes the water nice and milky, as well as keeping your skin lovely and soft. A nice option for those with dry skin.
The Kiss Lip Scrub:
The lip scrubs are amazing! I always look forward to the new flavours. The Kiss is a sweet flavoured lip scrub made of caster sugar, sea salt, edible hearts and sugar sprinkles.
Love Locket Bath Bomb:
I tried this one last year and really liked it, so I’m glad it’s back for another season! At £6.96, it’s pretty pricy for a bath bomb but it only comes round once a year AND it has a little surprise inside (a miniature heart shaped bath bomb) plus pink paper heart confetti. I remember splitting this up and got two baths out of it.
Prince Charming Shower Gel:
I remember the hype of this from last year but I didn’t get a chance to pick a bottle up for myself. By the time I remembered, it had been taken off the shelves. Prince Charming shower gel is blended with marshmallow root, fairtrade vanilla and pomegranate juice, grapefruit and almond oil.
Floating Flower Bath Bomb:
This is brand new to the collection and I’ve already seen what it is like on Instagram. It fizzes in the water and creates a really colourful combination of colours. It’s really pretty, and as you can imagine, has a floral scent to it.
The Kiss Lip Gloss:
I have to say, I’m not keen on LUSH lip glosses. At first, I didn’t think it was too bad but I find it quite drying after a few applications. I love the shade of The Kiss, but I won’t be giving this lip gloss a go this year.
Cupid’s Love (soap):
The overall shape of the soap is a love heart and cupid’s bow but in true LUSH style, this is cut up in to chunks and slabs. You buy the soaps by weight or size, and you can get as little or as much as you like. I LOVE the soaps at LUSH, they’re the best soaps! It leaves your skin feeling soft, hydrated and smelling nice! Cupid’s Love is on my wishlist, for sure! The soap is made from passionfruit juice, soya yoghurt, fresh figs and bergamot!
