Friday saw the launch of Lush’s Valentines day range as you may know if you have read this blog for a while I adore Lush. I have nearly the whole range one which is pictured above because I forgot #badblogger the couple of items which I did not purchase is the soap due to the fact I have purchased a lot of soap from the Christmas range and I need to use some of it before I purchase more, the other item which I didn’t get it the lip tint this again is because I am trying to use up lip products rather than actually add to my collect and it looked very sheer in store so I left it. I did not get any gift sets either because of the fact that there was no exclusives in them.
This beauty is Lover Lamp beware the bright pink colour is off another bath bomb which you will see in further along in the haul. This was one of my favouite bath bombs from the range last year due to the fact that it is so different to any other bath bomb which Lush have released. I get a huge scent of vanilla which is a very powdery vanilla scent this has a lot of Cocoa butter in which is very moisturising from what I remember it also has a slight hint of citrus orange. The red hearts floating in the bath are actually so romantic there are only three of them but they are amazing.
Shower Cream’s are one of my favourite items from Lush because they are super moistering which means that I do not have to use a body lotion which for a lazy girl like me is amazing. Who would not want to shower with prince charming when he smells of marshmallow vanilla and pomegranate which means that it is sweet and fruity for me this is one of my favourite combinations. This is one which I may end up purchasing more of while this range is still out but I did find 500g of this shower cream the day before the was released there is no lustre that I can see in this years serving but this does still smell amazing no matter what.
I can not remember if I have mentioned on my blog yet that I adore lip scrubs from Lush currently I have 4 of them obsessive yes I know. This is meant to make your lips better and get rid of the layer of skin on the lips which is dead and this means that lipsticks can be applied much easier and they also look so much better. I will be using this in conjunction with the ones which I purchased over the Christmas period. This scent so unique however, it actually reminds me of the swizzles sweets which I used to have as a child. I love how this actually has red love hearts which you can eat if the truth be told I eat the whole scrub once I have used it on my lips it tastes amazing so how not do this. 7
Cupid bath bomb is brand new to the range this year which is suprising because of it’s shape it is one which you would think was been out previously as it screams valentine’s to me. This shares it’s scent with a bath melt which I love this is razzle dazzle to me this smells like fresh raspberries with a hint of something which I think is rose but this could just be me. To me this smells fruity with a hint of floral which is something that is so different this is one which I sure will be using in the bath very very soon incase I adore it and I can purchase more before they go out of stock.
Bath melts are not somethign I really tend to reach for there is no reason why but this just seems to be the case maybe it is because they do not do a show in the water and this is something which I really enjoy. This bath melt is two hearts beating as one this bath melt is interlocking so could be used in to different bath should you want to, I feel like this is something which I am going to do. I like this scent however, this is one which I can not work out what it actually smells of its kind of sweety, slightly floral and fruity. I can tell this is going to be one which you know you have had in the bath it is going to be super mositering because of the cocoa butter. My mum described this scent as a reflection of my collection because it smells lush like. I am unsure what scent it is actually meant to be if you have chance go and sniff this in store.
Emoji’s have been huge for the last couple of years and now lush have jumped on the bandwagon and created the lovestruck bubble bar. This to me smells like lemons and then something different something which is almost woody. I can not work out if this is something which I adore I will admit I purchased it because of the design. This is something which I am going to have to use very soon to see if this is something which I actually like. If you have smelt it what do you think it smells like?
Meet over and over bath bomb which is maybe what I would claim is my favouite abth bomb in this whole haul it is citrus for anyone know really knows me well knows I adore Calcas which smells of sour gummy worms sweets. This bath bomb is super orange I challenge anyone not to adore this bath bomb it smells like you are actually bathing in an a orange rather than a bath. This is one which I wish I could stock up loads on but because it has a melt on the top they crack and then it starts eating the bath bomb after a few months I have been told. This is also the same for roller which is an oxford street and online exclusive.
Lush also are doing some amazing gifts but there is no exclusives as I stated above if you are thinking about treating a lush fan this valentine’s day it may be worth looking at the Lush Spa if you have one close to you because it sounds amazing. This is something which I have not actually tried and when speaking to a member of staff we worked out if I do not buy lush for a month I could actually afford one so maybe after the easter range has gone I will save up and have a lush spa treatment
Have you purchased anything from the valentine’s range or what would you like to recieve?
Today I have another subscription box but this one is for the parents. This is one from Flamingo Candle which is where you get 8 wax tart melts every month for only £9.99 which is such a bargain including the postage as well as getting 20% for been a member of there scent box. Without any further a do I will share my first impressions with this months box
The first tart I put my hands on this month was the Hot Fudge which to me smells very sweet however I feel like it is not something which is too sweet for me as some of them can be. This is something which I can imagine burning when I come home from uni and it is cold and this will warm my house up and make it smell amazing.
Rhubarb and Pear is one which I really adore out of this box and I think it could be one of my favourites to me I can smell the rhubarb. It makes me think of the crumbles which people bake this is something which is very warming and brings back so many memories of my mums rhubarb crumbles.
The next one is one which I will admit I am not a massive fan of and it is popcorn. I think this is due to the fact that it is a little bit too sweet for me however sometimes you have to burn them then make an opinion on them. I am hoping that this is going to be one which surprises me and becomes one which I actually like. I will let you know when I am burning it my opinion.
Chai Tea Latte was the next one which I found in the box now I will admit I really don’t know what a Chai tea latte smells like. So this is going to be one which I am going to have to burn in order to be able to decide if I like it or not however this is not something which offended me straight away when I gave it a sniff.
Black Raspberry and Vanilla is one of those which if I had to choose a favouite out of the whole box it would be this one it smells amazing. I really get the scent of raspberry first then a slight hint of vanilla this is going to be one which I will be burning as soon as I can and have a tart burner free to do this hopefully this is not going to be very long.
The next one which I found in the box was Banana pancakes this is one which I would never have purchased because banana is not one of my favouite. This smells really a lot of banana as the name suggests however hopefully when I go to burn this it is not going to be overpowering and I can stand to burn it. I guess time will tell.
Strawberry and geranium this is one which is an usually scent for me due to the fact that it is floral as well as been fruity however I get more of the floral scents which is something I actually like. This is one which is growing on me the more time time I smell it. This is not one which I would have purchased however it is one which is welcomed in this house hold.
The final tart which I received in this cranberry, orange and cinnamon this is one which I would have purchased myself because it smells like christmas in a candle to me. The reason I think this is due to the fact that it has scents which I think of when I think of christmas. This is one which I can not wait to burn very soon before it becomes past christmas.
Which one of these is your favourite from this box
