Lush Treats

I love nothing more than relaxing in a hot bubblebath with a magazine and a cup of tea. It helps me relax and unwind before bed. I went to Exeter recently and bought a few goodies from Lush. 

I picked up a fresh face mask - Love Lettuce and four bubble bars. I much prefer bubble bars to bath bombs, while I find the bombs smell nice and turn the bath water nice colours I don't find they actually do much. However, I find the bubble bars infuse the water with a softening quality and of course, they produce a ton of bubbles.

This is the Mumkin bubblebar which was a special release for mother's day. When I saw this on the stand I couldn't resist. This is what Lush had to say: "Renowned for her uplifting fruity fragrance and turning bath water a deep and delicious pink colour. Mumkin has a unique fragrance that smells like a punnet of fresh raspberries - the perfect scent to make you feel fresh, uplifted and full of the joys of spring."

This bubble bar costs £2.95 and with all the bubble bars, I always break them up to get several uses out of them.

Another two limited edition bubble bath products here. On the left is the Golden Egg, which is a bath bomb and bath melt rolled into one product. This costs £3.50 and is a limited edition treat in time for Easter. This is what Lush had to say: "A glistening golden bath melt and bath bomb rolled into one. Because of its luxurious bath melt outer layer, when you first drop this into the bath it will sink down, the bob back to the tip as the bath bomb centre begins to fizz away, filling your bath water with its sumptuous honey-toffee fragrance.

The item on the right is called Wonder Woohoo and costs £3.95. I love the golden glitter on this bubblebar, but it does tend to get everywhere. This is what Lush had to say: "Inspired by Wonder Woman ad created for wonder women everywhere. With mimosa absolute, sandalwood oil and Brazilian orange oil - Wonder Woohoo is like a big, cheerful hug of fragrance. The lustre in the center of this bear will create a beautiful silvery trail amid the bubbles.

This brightly coloured bubble bar is aptly named Brightside and is a bit more expensive and costs £4.50 but it is a hefty product. This is what Lush had to say: "When you're chewing on life's gristle don't grumble, give it a whistle. Hop in the bath with one of these uplifting bubble bars, Sicilian mandarin, bergamot and tangerine essential oils to help you look on the right side of life. Its jazzy bright colours will create magnificent orange bath water and the sunny citrus fragrance is sure to leave you jolly and refreshed.

This product is the same size and the Comforter bubble bar and I find those easily last six baths.

Love Lettuce is a fresh face mask which needs to be kept in the fridge. This is one of my fav fresh face masks because of the crushed almond shells the mask is great for exfoliating. This is what Lush had to say: "Brighten your complex with nutrient-rich agar seaweed gel, soothing and moisturising honey and almond oil and gently exfoliating almond shells. This mask is simple fragranced with French lavender which has a calming effect on the mind and helps to balance the skin's sebum production. 

I apply a generous layer of this on a freshly cleansed face and let the mask do its magic while I soak in the bubble bath and wrinkle up like a prune. 

What are your fav Lush products at the moment? 


  1. Hi Nicole! I was in lush last week and also bought the golden egg-it's SO glittery so I am hoping it doesn't transfer too much or my OH will go mad!!

    After initially not liking it I am really liking the king of skins moisturising bar-my skin is really soft after using it!
