Anyone that knows me will tell you that I am OBSESSED with Lush, and I think their products are exactly that: Lush! Not only are they cruelty-free AND vegan, their products are super cute and anyone that gets their hands on one is guaranteed to have a smile on their face! From the gorgeous scents to the stunning designs and witty names of their products, there’s something for everyone!
So here’s a list of some of my absolute favourites! (I’ve made this part one because undoubtedly there will be more Lush themed posts..)!
Think Pink (bath bomb)
“banish the black, burn the blue and bury the beige!” – that’s the tagline for this bath bomb, and rightly so! Now I may be a bit biased as pink is my favourite colour, however, this is one of my all time favourite bath bombs! As soon as it hits the water it starts to release the most gorgeous magenta and fuchsia colours, along with a slight sparkle thanks to the glitter! The colour disperses quickly whilst keeping it’s intensity, I put my hand under the water and it completely disappears into the pink, glittery abyss! The scent of this bath bomb isn’t any less impressive that it’s appearance, it has a very comforting and sweet scent, thanks to the vanilla and top note of caramel to add that little extra oomf! Not only that, the ingredients contain cornflour and lavender oil which work together to bring a softening embrace to the skin, leaving you feeling relaxed and your skin feeling soft!
Guardian of the Forest (bath bomb)
“the spirit of nature” – it sure is! This bath bomb embodies everything you imagine when you think of magical forests. As if it’s stunning design isn’t enough to pull you in, the strong scent of oakmoss is just too comforting for words. Not only that, the cypress is added to soothe muscles and also acts as an antiseptic, cleansing the skin as you bathe. The scents of this bath bomb are combined to relax, revitalise and uplift and that’s exactly what they do.. while the addition of fragrant rosewood oil gives it that little extra kick and really adds to that wonderful earthy scent! The colour that you get when it hits the water is absolutely stunning, the bath turns into a lagoon of powerful deep greens, a hint of blue and a little shimmer to bring that extra magic sparkle to the tub. This bath bomb is one of the most unique in the entire Lush collection, mostly down to its earthy scent, which is why it’s one of my all time favourites!
Shimmy Shimmy (shimmer bar – go figure!)
“for skin that shines” – they’re not joking. This product has to be my ABSOLUTE favourite product Lush have ever created. This bar has been made to be nourishing, hydrating, softening and conditioning and I can safely say job well done! The main ingredients are both cocoa and shea butter (fair trade of course, this is Lush after all..) which are both gentle, richly moisturising and easily absorbed into the skin, perfect for a bar like this! The scent of this bar is predominantly vanilla and clary sage oil which give the scent a sweet, calming and sensual feel. Now, undoubtedly, my favourite thing about this product is the gorgeous glittery shimmer that it leaves on the skin after being applied. It is meant to be applied on an area of the skin that you want to highlight, however if you’re like me that’s absolutely everywhere!! The shimmery glitter shows up brilliantly and leaves your skin dewy and glowing, I really find it gives you that extra little boost of confidence!
So there we have it, a few of my all time favourite Lush products! I really can’t get enough of this brand and I will continue to be amazed by the stunning products they keep creating, so no doubt they’ll be many more posts like this one to come so stay on the look out for those!
