I’ve Made a Friend For Life

LUSH Butter bear Bath Bomb

I have to admit that I haven’t tried a whole lot of LUSH products. They have such a huge range & many ltd edition products that its hard to try everything & I get so overwhelmed by it all. I tend to stick to bath bombs & I also like their face toners / spritz. I do get excited about the Christmas range & when I heard it was in stores despite it being October I had to pop in and I treated myself to two things, one being my old faithful & much loved The Melting Snowman & also  a new product called Butter Bear.

Lush Bath Bombs

I think like the ‘Ickle Robot this is a product aimed at children but who isn’s a big kid at heart? LUSH describe Butter Bear as

‘Cocoa butter creates a creamy soft bath that is great for nourishing and protecting your skin, with the same vanilla-like fragrance as Butterball bath bomb. Moulded into a friendly and sweet-smelling bear, this is sure to be a winner with little and big kids alike!’

This is a low key bath bomb it leaves your bath water a milky white colour with a few bubbles but nothing too OTT. It smells relaxing and soothing. I like citrus scents so love this, its perfect for a relaxing evening. The cocoa butter leaves your skin so very soft. I have fallen in love with this little white Butter Bear & have been back to buy a couple more. I think he is going to be my go to bath bomb for the festive season.

Let me know what your picks are from the LUSH Christmas Range.

Relaxing Wishlist

Relaxing Wishlist



I’m currently in the middle of moving house and its taking its toll on me. I’m very tired and have aching muscles and in need of a huge pamper session but sadly all my products are in boxes so I thought I’d do a wish list full of relaxing products.

Deep Sleep Pillow Spray £16.00 – I have heard so many wonderful reviews of this and I have so many things on my mind at the moment that I am not sleeping very well so a few sprays of this would be very welcome.

Weleda Lavender Relaxing Bath Milk £12.95 – My new house has a really nice big bath and I’m very much looking forward to long soaks in the bath and this bath milk sounds very relaxing and the perfect thing to sooth my aches.

Cowshed Knackered Cow Relaxing Room Candle £30.00 – I adore burning candles and this one sums me up so well. I am such a knackered cow at the moment. I will be treating myself to one of these once I’ve moved & unpacked everything.

LUSH Bunch of Carrots  £5.95 – How cute are these! I have to try them before they’re gone. I always miss the ltd edition collections at LUSH. They’re also a great calorie free Easter Treat! Ideal if you’re trying to be healthy.

Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts £37.00 – I have used these before and love them. They smell so good and make you feel all warm and relaxed. After you bath in these you will asleep within the hour. They completely knocked me out and I slept like a baby. I need to treat myself to a new tub. I have never tried anything like these before, they’re so calming.

Green & Spring Relaxing Body Lotion £22.00 – Packing and lifting boxes takes it out of you and isn’t great for your skin either so this body lotion sounds not only relaxing but it will keep me all hydrated and my skin very soft.

Jurlique Lavender Hydrating Mist £21.50 – I really like using face mists, they’re a great way to cool down, freshen up or just keep your skin hydrated and this Lavender one sounds relaxing and the perfect way to keep my skin looking fresh during the move.

Have you tried any of the products on my wish list? Or have any skincare / relaxing tips for moving house?

LUSH Storage Jar Storage SolutionsLUSH Storage

Just a short & sweet post today. I thought I would show you how I store my LUSH bath products. I needed something that kept them dry & I wanted to be able to see what I had. This Jar is quite large, I need to buy a few more so I can fill it (any excuse to shop in LUSH). It reminds me of an old school sweetie jar. I bought it from Wilkinsons for £6 & I have bought my mum one for her Christmas and I am planning on putting a few of her favourite LUSH products in. I know she will love it.

How do you store you LUSH products?

Liverpool LUSH

I popped into the new LUSH store in Liverpool which is also a Spa. How did I not know that LUSH had these Spa stores now? I didn’t have an appointment at the Spa but they offer lovely treatments and have 6 Spa’s up and down the country. I will definitely  book myself in for a little treat. Maybe the hubby can book me in as a Valentine treat.

LUSH Liverpool

I went in to pick up a few bath products. I wanted to go for some that I hadn’t tried before.  The new Liverpool store is just lovely. It is really big and well laid out. The staff were very helpful and I tested out a few of the products I bought in store. That a fun way to spend  20 minutes.

So these are the 4 things I picked up



1. The Enchanter Bath Bomb – This turns your bath water orange then pink and has lime, neroli and frankincense in it. Its smells amazing. I think it also has a little glitter in it for that added sparkle £3.20

2. Butterball Bath Bomb – I thought this little white one looked so cute (anything small is cute right?!). This may be small but its packed full of cocoa butter to really moisturise your skin. I like the sound of this one as it also has Vanilla and I really like Vanilla, it’s a really fresh sweet scent. £2.45

3. Fizzbanger Bath Ballistic – I tested this one in the shop, its spins around in the water fizzing and popping it’s quite cool so I just had to get one. It smells really citrus and also has cinnamon in too. £3.20

4. You’ve Been Mangoed Luxury Bath Melt – Oh my this smells of Spring & so fruity. Its lovely. I can’t wait to use it. The bar itself feels creamy & is full of skin softening butter to really hydrate you.  In it are avocado, mango and cocoa butters and also lemongrass, lime and lemon essential oils – sounds lovely. £3.10

Mango Lush Melt

So all those are products I have never tried. I am a nightmare at relaxing in the bath – well at relaxing anywhere if I’m honest. So I’m trying to enjoy having a bath more an I thought what better way than by using a lovely LUSH bath bomb.  Let me know if you have used any of these or if you have another favourite that I should try.

It’s a First for me

How can I call myself a beauty blogger & never have owned a LUSH bath product? I know its criminal right. Well last week I popped my LUSH bath bomb cherry. I picked up two & I must say it was a really difficult decision. They have so many to choose from. I was in there for so long trying to pick just two.

I went for the So White Bath Bomb £3.20. This is MASSIVE & I like the sound of the white outer shell shattering to reveal a fizzing pink heart. I’m looking forward to a relaxing pink bath. Perfect for the month of October with it being Breast Cancer Awareness month – a lovely pink fizzing bath.

I also picked up Candy Mountain Bubble Bar £2.45. This fun Pink & Green bubble bar smells really sweet. I love it. This smells the better of the two for sure. I’m interested to see how good the bubbles are with this. I love a really bubbly bubble bath. I am also excited to see what colour this makes my bath turn.

Candy Mountain & So White

I will be using these this week & I will let you know my thoughts. I can’t believe I have never bought any before but in my defense there are so many to choose from its quite overwhelming.

I’d love to know what are you favourite LUSH bath bombs, Melts, Bubble Bars. I want to pick up some more & would love your recommendations.

My love for bubblegum

LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub

I picked this up after so many recommendations, I know I’m late on this bandwagon. My lips are generally dry and not great for lipsticks. I find the skin partially on my bottom lip to be flakey, esp in the drier months. So heading into Autumn and the colder days I thought it was high time I picked up a pot of this lip scrub to see what all the fuss was about.

LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub

Well blow me down with a feather – is this not just a little pot of magic. First off it smells & tastes AMAzing!! That’s a fact. Now we can’t judge on smell and taste alone otherwise this wouldn’t be beauty related. But it does smell so nice, Bubblegum flavour is heavenly.

I put this on my lips before bed and give it a good rub with my finger and then smooth the rest in by rubbing my lips together. It feels odd but it really works. By morning my lips feel smooth. It’s weird being able to eat the excess scrub, but I like it.

LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub

This is one of those products you wish you’d been using all along. It now lives on my night stand along with all the other products I use before bed. It’s becoming quite a routine. I need to start coming to bed earlier and earlier! Please tell me I’m not alone in this & you all have a nigh-time routine that’s getting a little out of hand.

So my smooth lips now look a lot better with lipstick on – I’ve found that nude lipsticks look good on me now. These really used to show up my flakey lips & I never wore my Mac Hue lippy. These past few weeks I have really been enjoying it again. This Bubblegum Lip Scrub isn’t a fancy product nor an expensive one but it’s worked wonders on my lips and I shall be repurchasing this.

You can pick this LUSH Bubblegum Lip Scrub up from your local LUSH store or from their online store here for £5.25 you get 25g of product.
