Love Island Body Scrub

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.

Love Token Reusable Bubble Bar

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.

Six Reusable Bubble Bar

Six reusable bubble bar is possibly my favourite Valentine’s day product ever released by Lush based purely on the design. For Valentine’s Day 2019, they have really pushed the boat out with the suggestive product names and innuendous descriptions.
This naughty bubble bar is scented with the beloved yog nog fragrance and because it’s a reusable bubbe bar, all you have to do is hold it by it’s tail or pop a finger in the hole under running water to create a tub full of bubbles.
Both colours are the same scent, just in case there was any confusion. I found it didn’t really colour the water when I used it and the scent wasn’t as strong as other yog nog products. It reminds me more of a crunchie chocolate bar.. like honeycomb! It made plenty of fluffy bubbles however just like other reusable bubble bars, they’re not the most hydrating and tend to feel squeaky in the bath. If you know, you know!
