I have never really explored Lush's extensive bath range even though I am aware that they have become the go to place for such necessities. I was given the Snow Fairy gift set for Christmas (which you can read about in more detail here) and not only was I impressed by the quality of the bath products in terms of usability, durability and scent, the ethos of the company as a whole has left a lasting impression on me. If you don't already know, Lush are a company that works extremely hard to fight against animal testing, they promote purchasing their ingredients ethically, all of their products are handmade and the company is 100% vegetarian with a huge range of products also being vegan. These factors, along side the fact that the products themselves are gorgeous, are the reason that I popped into store for a good nosey to get to know the company a bit more. I walked out with three new bath goodies, a little naughty I know as I still haven't finished my Snow fairy gift set, but I have been having a lot more baths of late (read why here) so felt as though I could justify this haul!!
The first product I picked up was the Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar. This is a limited edition bubble bar especially created for Valentines Day. I have read a couple of reviews online from other beauty bloggers who all raved about the lovely lavender scent and being a huge fan of all things lavender myself I decided to pop this beauty straight into my basket.
"A one way ticket to the end of the rainbow. Keep this horn on hand and crumble under running water for an explosion of sparkling lustre, colourful candy stars and magical neroli and lavender scents. Self preserving and suitable for vegans."
The scent really is incredible, it has a gorgeous yet not over powering blend of fresh lavender and love hearts the sweeties. I do love a sweet candy smell so the two of these combined did do wonders for me. I have only used it once and so I don't feel as though I can write a full review on it, but so far I have been very impressed with the results as it has done exactly what it said on the packet. I also broke off a very small amount, about the size of a fifty pence piece and so if you're not too keen on strong smells, I would crumble small parts at a time so as not to get a over powering aroma!
The next product to hop into my shopping basket was the Tisty Tosty Bath Ballistic. I was initially drawn to the look of this bath bomb as it appeared very sophisticated and tranquil with the glimmer of rose petals against a pale white love heart. I picked up this particular one as the rose heads had all gathered down the left hand side of the heart making it very aesthetically pleasing.
"This ballistic is a love spell. Fill the bath, get in, hold the ballistic in your hands whilst contemplating your chosen one, lower into the water to unleash its powerful magic. Watch the seven rose buds emerge from the swirling potion and count your way to a budding romance."
It claims to have healing powers to mend  broken heart yet I have bought it because I thought that the intricate blend of geranium, jasmine and rose with a hint of lemon balm would be very relaxing in the bath. I am yet to try this one and I think that I will probably try to break it in two to get more from my buck but I am really looking forward to giving it a go as there are loads of positive comments on the Lush website about it!
The third and final product of this mini Lush haul is the Ickle Baby Bot Bath Ballistic. Now I know that this product is advertised as a bath bomb for children or babies over six months, to help them get to sleep. However, I didn't realise this when I picked it up and I thought that it smelt so nice! Like I've said, I am a huge fan of lavender scents and so without reading too much into the description I put it in to my basket and thought no more.
"Fill the bath with water, get in and release this Ickle ballistic into the water to let him do his sleep inducing work"
I don't think that this little explanation even suggests that this particular bath bomb is for children, it was until I was writing this post and getting the links ready to the Lush website that I saw a more in-depth description! Ahhh well, I am sure that it'll do the trick on a slightly older person, after all, I still need to get to sleep on a night too!
When I go to the counter to buy my products I was offered a sample pot of a hand and body lotion called Deeply Giving. You were charged a pound and the money goes straight to charity and you get a relatively large sample of this sweet smelling, fast absorbing cream. As if you could need another reason to love Lush as a company even more!!
