Love Island body scrub was one of the products from the 2019 Valentines Day range that really stood out to me as being unique and quirky. Lush have been taking a more modern approach on some of their items, like their Peachy and Aubergine bath bombs modelled after the popular emojis. They’re taking social media seriously these days and as well as these emojis being popular on social media, so was the tv series of the same name. The sugar, sand and salt scrub really packs a punch in the exfoliation and scent department. It shares it’s scent with the class Fizzbanger bath bomb – which in turn is Love scented, just like the body spray and the original perfume. Whilst I’m not a huge fan of this scent, I can really appreciate it in this form as it seems stronger than other products. You could say its almost like a cinnamon apple scent but in this I can really pick up on the other ingredients. Despite it’s size, this little body scrub which is probably designed for one use, can last quite a few uses. I recommend crushing the scrub into a spare black pot from Lush so you can ration how much you use in each shower.
As soon as I saw the Love Token bubble bar was going to be part of the valentines day range, I was so excited to get one! So as always, I made the trip to my local Lush store to take a peek at the Valentines day range when it dropped. My eyes were automaticaly drawn to this product purely because of the golden lustre.. I’m a magpie. I immediately picked one up to give it a big sniff and that’s when my heart sunk and stomach dropped. All I could smell was the clove bud oil which it my all time hated scent. I just can’t do clove whatsoever, my stomach churns and my mouth starts to water in a bad way. It shares it’s scent with the Gingerbread Man sparkle jar from the 2018 Christmas range. As I wasn’t going to be picking this up, I asked for a demo in store to see how it smells in the water and whilst its subtle, I can still smell the clove. Check out the demo below to see some slow motion bubble making action at Lush Newcastle.
Original price: £4.95 Vegan: yes Size: Availability: Valentines Day 2019 Scent family: Similar to Gingerbread Man sparkle jar My rating: 2/5 (purely because of the scent and my dislike for reusable bubble bars compared to regular bubble bars)
Yes you read that right, bubble bra. This bubbleroon type product is inspired by and named after the musical legend Madonna. Perfect for at least two baths, this bubble bar will allow you to smell the decadent golden pear scent on more than one ocassion. This fragrance has become recently popular ever since the first appearance of the Golden Pear soap for Christmas 2017. We have seen several products with this scent now and this is one of them. The two halves are sandwiched together by softening murumuru and fair trade cocoa butter which is extremely moisturising for the skin. When ran under hot water, the spicy cardomom and sensual sandalwood really come through and with the golden lustre, it make for an exceptionally luxurious bath time.
Eve’s Cherry lip scrub is the first lip scrub I have used from Lush that I am ok to get in my mouth. I know that probably sounds weird, but I usually use a lip scrub and wash it off instead of just licking my lips after. When I first opened the jar I got an overwhelming whiff of the popular fizzy pop Vimto! The combination of davana, buchu and almond essential oils creates the fruity flavour and lime juice leaves a zesty tang after. It isn’t too sweet and the colour is so strong I think it tinted my lips afterwards! The texture is the same as other lip scrubs from Lush. It’s the perfect balance of fine and coarse which really helps to exfoliate the lips without leaving them sore. The jojoba and shea butter really leaves the lips feeling super soft and nourished afterwards.
