Spring Bunny Bath Bomb from Lush

 Spring Bunny Bath Bomb.png

The Spring Bunny Bath Bomb is only available to buy as a single product in one place in the world, Lush’s flagship store in Oxford Street, London. (There are several Easter gift sets that it features in too!)

It is no secret that the citrus scented products are the ones I favour. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a lot of the new Easter stuff this year as so many of the products in this years line are citrus based.

Packed with Sicilian lemon oil, the Spring Bunny bath bomb makes for an excellent bath time product to use if you need to get up and go. Most Lush bath bombs are tennis ball shaped and lack the same intricate detail that Spring Bunny does. Shaped as an Easter bunny, it has a face, ears and little feet making it almost too cute to let go down the plug hole.

In size I’d compare it to the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb.

Packed with uplifting and cleansing Sicilian lemon oil, Spring Bunny is the perfect Easter pick-me-up. A lot of people think that baths are a part of a night time ritual that helps you get off to sleep. This isn’t the case at all, the rich and zingy scent of Spring Bunny gives me such an energy and mood boost that I’d actually feel silly using it of a night.

Before I got my hands on the Spring Bunny bath bomb I expected it to be a very quick fizzer, I was very surprised as it lasted a lot longer than I thought it would. I am unsure of how long it actually takes to fully dissolve but comparing it to other bath bombs of a similar size it definitely puts on a ever so slightly longer show.

For design I give the Spring Bunny bath bomb top marks, simply because it’s so detailed.

I know of several people that haven’t been able to use their Spring Bunny bath bomb yet because it is so sweet to look at. Giving it a little nose, eyes, ears and dinky feet has made it so much more impressionable than the normal type of bath bomb, as said above, you just don’t want to let it all go down your plug hole never to be seen again.

Some have even said that the Spring Bunny bath bomb is like having a pet rabbit BUT a lot better as it smells like lemons, doesn’t need feeding and also doesn’t poop…

I however never get too attached to my bath bombs and threw this little guy in my bath as soon as I could.

What the Spring Bunny bath bomb lacks in size and variety of colours is well made up for with its uplifting and refreshing scent. As soon as I got into the bath I could feel the bath bombs cocoa butter, soothing and hydrating my tired, dry, winter skin. The Lemon scent stayed with me for the rest of the day too.

I have a few of this bath bomb in my personal Lush stock and I foresee some very energising baths in my very near future. For such a little bath bomb, Spring Bunny has quite the kick!

Tweet Bubble Bar from Lush

Tweet Bubble Bar.png

I managed to get hold of this Oxford Street 2016 Easter exclusive thanks to my sis-in-law who is literally my Lush lifeline, she’s an amazing personal shopper to have, you should all be very, very jealous.  Sending her on all of my Oxford Street errands has accidentally got her hooked on Lush Cosmetics too, whoops! I can’t take full credit though as lets face it, every single product in Lush sells itself, going into the shop, picking things up to sniff, touch and learn more about it is all part of the wonderful and very addictive Lush experience.

This Easter (2016), Lush Oxford Street have a brand new, slightly odd looking yet perfectly charming store exclusive, the Tweet Bubble Bar.

All Lush products are handmade, it is however not until a product like the Tweet bubble bar is released that you get to really appreciate this. Although each Tweet bubble bar weighs the same, (meaning you get the same amount of product in each) no two look quite the same. For someone like me who has an overactive imagination this personal and individual touch gives each Tweet chick its very own personality. Although the lack of consistency look-wise will bother some, I feel it’s all part of Lush’s charm.

 
Tweet bubble bar like quite a few of the recent Lush releases is another citrus scented product. It is very similar to the Sunflower bubble Bar that was also an Oxford Street exclusive earlier this year.

Packed with plenty of tangerine oil, Tweet is a bubble bar that will refresh and lift your mood whatever the weather. Within aromatherapy tangerine oil is used to relieve stress and is also said to help with insomnia. As an ex(ish) insomniac I can honestly say that since using Lush products before bed I have noticed such a positive difference in my sleep pattern. Although I am not completely cured I now find it so much easier to drift off to sleep, getting that extra few hours of sleep in comparison to none at all is a god send.


I broke my first Tweet bubble bar into two. This amount made copious amount of soft, citrus-sweet bubbles. In hindsight I wish I would have spread the Tweet bar over 3 baths as it is more than capable of doing so.

Spread out over 2 baths Tweet more than adequately met my bathing needs. The only negative thought I have of it is that I just always get a little frustrated when a really good bubble bar isn’t the same size as for example the, The Comforter bubble bar. I’m just a greedy guts like that… This point is of course more of a reflection on me than Tweet!

My skin, dry and feeling a little more sensitive than normal due to the increase in amount of hydro sessions I have had to put my body through felt instantly soothed.

I spent a little bit longer in this Tweet bath than I would normally do, I was just so very relaxed.

Several hours after getting out of a Tweet bath my skin is still beautifully hydrated and the scent of the Tweet bubble bar is still very prominent on my skin. I wish I had a few more of these in my personal Lush stash as they really are such a good Lush product.

I hope they come back for Easter 2017!

Somewhere Over The Rainbow Bath Bomb from Lush

Somewhere Over The Rainbow Bath BombI finally got hold of the Lush Oxford Street exclusive, the Somewhere Over the Rainbow Bath Bomb. A huge thank you to my sister-in-law Kelly for picking these up for me. I literally squealed with delight when this handsome little bath bomb arrived on my doorstep. When I very first see the sneak peaks of this bath bomb, I predicted that it would be similar to the Sacred Lotus bath bomb in terms of fragility. Somewhere Over the Rainbow is however the complete opposite of fragile. For its unusual shape, it is remarkably sturdy putting other oddly shaped bath bombs to shame.

I’m 100% positive that Somewhere Over the Rainbow shares its scent with another Lush product, I however can’t work it out and it’s driving me insane! – I wish that I could have them all in front of me to sniff so that I could work it out. I found a little bit of information about it online but seeing as it’s a very newly released bath bomb no one has had the chance to write a proper review on it just yet.

Containing sicilian mandarin and neroli oil it is a relaxing, mood boosting and refreshing bath time treat. Many people think that bath bombs are only good for winding down before bed. WRONG! The Somewhere Over the Rainbow bath bomb breathes life into my tired body, helping me go on for that little bit longer.

As soon as Somewhere Over The Rainbow hits the water you’re greeted with a thick pastel coloured red and orange foam that is super moisturising and soft. Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’d already know that the Somewhere Over The Rainbow bath bomb is inspired by the film The Wizard of Oz, It’s kaleidoscope of colours really does draw you into the magic that comes if you follow the yellow brick road.

I always get an unbelievable amount of photos when I use this bath bomb. I thought that it would be a quick fizzer with the odd splash of colour, it was however so much more than that. It fizzed away very slowly, gracefully filling my bathroom with a soft citrus and calming neroli scent. This combination works a trick for shaking off any worries or stress you may be feeling.

I am devastated that I only have one more of these bath bombs left in my own personal stash, they were an Easter 2016 limited edition release so you can no longer get them. I feel that once Easter 2016 was over, the absence of the Somewhere Over the Rainbow bath bomb left a big empty hole in the Lush world. It’s a brilliant product and would make for a fantastic permanent edition, I’d love it even if Lush just decided to keep it on as a Lush Oxford Street exclusive.

Roses All The Way Soap from Lush

Roses All The Way Soap.png

We haven’t even finished the first quarter of 2016 and already Lush have brought out more new and exciting products than I can keep up with. We’ve had the Valentine’s Day range, the Mother’s Day range and of course the Easter range as well as everything else in-between.

In all honesty I am literally stuck in a state of disbelief that we have actually already entered March?! As the saying goes – time flies when you’re having fun and with all of the new Lush goodies on offer, by me, fun is most certainly being had!

Today I am reviewing the Roses All The Way Soap, never before been released – this beautiful heart shaped, rose detailed soap had me intrigued within seconds of stumbling across it.

The Roses All The Way Soap is a generous size that takes up the best part of my hand. Comparing it to the usual, rectangular soap slabs its unique design, size and shape make it a lot easier to grip when using it in the bath or shower. For me, as a disabled person my particular needs in a soap are catered for just on the fact that it is easier to grip. Until my Lush addiction hit me bad, I was never a fan of floral scents, I don’t know why but I had always associated rose, lavender and other flowery scents with getting old.

Slowly but surely the Rose Jam scent however grew on me, alongside that, a lot of other scents that I never thought I’d enjoy all of a sudden became desirable.  I’d go as far as to say that my sense of smell has matured since joining the Lush crowd. I am now recognising and appreciating scents I had never really taken much notice of before. Lush has opened my eyes and although I am still far from an expert when it comes to scents, I am getting better!

Roses All The Way Soap is of course primarily a rose scent. At first I thought it was the Rose Jam scent but after a while I realised it actually has a softer floral tone and is actually quite sweet, almost zesty.  The more I used it, the more prominent the lemon oil in it appeared to be.

The idea behind this soap was inspired by Alice In Wonderland’s ‘painting the roses red’ part of the book. The back of the soap is white, as you use it, its red side starts to turn a light pink, eventually fading to a bright white. Any one who is familiar with the Alice in Wonderland story will know that the Queen of Hearts angrily demands that all of the white roses in her court yard are to be painted red. Painting the white roses red is exactly what her pack-of-card guards set upon doing.

Several hours after my bath I can still smell this soaps soft and zingy fragrance on my skin. It lathered up well and didn’t dry out my skin which has amazed me as most bars of soap do, especially those that are primarily floral.

Overall I am really impressed with Roses All The Way, it’s a wonderful addition to the Lush Soap family. Since enjoying it so much I have made it my new Lush goal to try several more Lush soaps in the near future. Watch this space!

Yummy Mummy Shower Cream from Lush

Yummy Mummy Shower Cream

I have finally found a moment to blog about one of the new Mother’s Day products from Lush. This year (2016) we have been treated to a brand new product, the Yummy Mummy Shower Cream. Previous to this, Yummy Mummy had only ever been released as a shower gel.

*Lush did also create a body conditioner with the same name but for the purpose of this review I am talking about the change from Yummy Mummy shower gel, to Yummy Mummy shower cream*

I guess turning the shower gel into a cream brings the best parts of the shower gel and body conditioner into one product. I know that not everyone is happy with the switch from gel to cream, I however love the change. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Yummy Mummy shower gel, I just always seem to favour the shower creams over the gels. For me, the shower creams feel just that little bit more luxurious in comparison to the gels.

Obviously the first thing that catches your eye with Yummy Mummy shower cream is its beautiful lustre-infused purple colour. The Yummy Mummy shower cream looks and feels like liquid velvet, it’s a real treat for dehydrated skin.

Once you have used the shower cream its sweet, fruity scent lingers on your skin long after getting out of the bath or shower.

Yummy Mummy shower cream shares its scent with the 2015 winter ranges bubble bar, the Peeping Santa. I loved Peeping Santa and was very happy to see the Yummy Mummy scent making a return in yet another format for this years Mother’s Day line.

What pleases me even more is that the Yummy Mummy shower cream is not the only product available in this years Mother’s day range that shares the scent, there is also the Roller bath bomb and Flutterby bubble bar too.

Although I’d say this shower cream is primarily a fruity scented product, the added geranium oil within it, though not very strong, gives it a very unique and soft, almost musky edge. It reminds me of freshly chopped strawberries which makes a change as most of the other fruity products that I normally go for are citrus based.

I really do hope that they bring this wonderful shower cream back for next years Mother’s Day.  I am so tempted to buy several to keep in my Lush stock but I’m trying to be good. I will have to just use the shower cream sparingly, which might I add isn’t a negative at all as a little of this shower cream goes a very, very long way.
