May Day Bath Bomb from Lush #VotesForAnimals

May Day Bath BombThe May Day Bath Bomb has a badgers face. A lot of people say that they can not make it out but I can and I think it is a really clever and interesting design.

For every May Day bath bomb sold by Lush, proceeds (minus VAT) goes towards the activist groups behind the ‘Votes For Animals’ campaign.

I bought the May Day bath bomb as I love the idea of donating towards something good, especially something that is doing wonderful things for animals. In this not so fair world animals like so many other unfortunate things do not have a voice, as an invisible illness and disability activist I can relate to this. It makes me feel very uncomfortable when I realise that although I sometimes feel as if I am lost in the world due to my disability that I can in fact shout about it, I can write a post like this on the internet, animals can however not.

To look at, the May Day bath bomb is quite plain. I have heard people refer to it as ‘ugly’ when comparing it to other Lush bath bombs. Although it isn’t the prettiest of bath bombs, it is bright, has a very clean white and neat appearance and has an amazingly refreshing scent. Not all bath bombs are meant to be drop, dead gorgeous. It’s what is inside that counts.

The scent for this bath bomb surprised me, I thought it would be as subtle as its presentation is plain. I was wrong as always, never judge a bath bomb until you’ve used it at least once. May Day has a lovely sherbet smell as well as notes of bergamot, rosewood and fennel oil, making it an incredibly fresh, outdoorsy and somewhat fruity treat.

May Day is not a great choice if you’re looking for a colourful bath, I however loved it without all of the theatrics as I found its scent both uplifting and very refreshing.

Once in the bath I felt instantly relaxed, my skin was well and truly moisturised. My only upset for this bath bomb was how quickly it disappeared, for its size it dissolved very quickly in comparison to others I have previously used. It however made for a beautiful bath, it was a real treat for my skin and was clearly working some sort of magic well after I had left the tub.

Once the bath bomb is no more, you are greeted with a small piece of paper as seen in the photo below. This is a great way to spread awareness and money for a very deserving charity. Well done Lush.

Bubblegum Lip Scrub from Lush

bubblegum lip scrub

When I very first see the little pot of Bubblegum Lip Scrubs in amongst the others I knew it was the one I wanted to try first. I didn’t care what it smelt or tasted like, I just had to have it. It’s such a shockingly bright pink and with pink being my favourite colour it made sense for me to try Bubblegum before any of the others.

Lush lip scrubs come in the dinkiest of jars, don’t let the small size of them put you off though, each pot really does go a long, long way and each individual jar are always filled to the brim too.

The main ingredient in all of Lush’s lip scrubs is caster sugar. Bubblegum in particular has a very short list of ingredients, caster sugar and jojoba oil; When I see how basic the ingredients list I wasn’t expecting amazing results but tried it nonetheless.

Comparing the Bubblegum lip scrub to other brands of lip scrubs I have used, I would say that it is most certainly the best at exfoliating my lips. I am so, so impressed at the results it gives. I now choose Lush lip scrubs over all others not only because of the quality and instant results but because of Lush’s ethical buying policies too.

Bubblegum lip scrub gives instant results and with minimum effort. The fact that it is better for the environment (no micro plastics!) and better for you in regards to its natural ingredients etc is just an added bonus and one that we should all be more conscious about as we only have one life and one planet.

I have really bad, rough lips (or should I say had).  After the very first use of this Lush product my lips felt and looked in a much better condition. Using it daily has further shown me amazing results, I now have the confidence to wear lip colour.

I have read that some people have eaten their Bubblegum lip scrub, So far I have restrained myself from doing the same. In all seriousness, it’s obviously not meant to be eaten but if a bit does end up in your mouth in the process of scrubbing your lips with it, don’t worry, you’re not going to die.

I am so, so excited with all of the wonderful products that Lush have on offer and look forward to reviewing more on my blog here very soon. I’d also be very interested in your own personal opinions on the Bubblegum lip scrub, let me know below! ☺️

Why Lush?

I absolutely adore Lush Cosmetics, which is not at all obvious from the title of this blog. Every time you get close to a Lush store even if it is out of sight, you know it is nearby. Lush do not advertise at all, they are 100% eco friendly and solely rely on word of mouth, customer to friend. I LOVE how identifiable all of their stores are just because of their famous Lush scent. Looking at it from a business point of view it’s genius marketing.

Lush’s products sell themselves too. Once you’re hooked on just one product you won’t be able to walk past a store without popping in ever again. It’s a bit like when you are out and about and someone walks past you with chips smothered in Salt & Vinegar, you just can’t resist getting a bag of your own.

Back before I became a hardcore Lushie I ignorantly thought Lush only sold bath bombs and soap. Don’t get me wrong, I loved a bath bomb but my Mum doesn’t like anything weird in her bath so when I was still counting home as her house (meaning us both sharing the same bathroom) I just avoided using any fancy products. I now realise this was a huge injustice, I had missed out on so many years of Lush… I well make up for it now though!

Ever since moving into my own house I have been able to fully embrace Lush Cosmetics with no limits, out of that came Lush Upon A Time. Once you’ve visited a Lush store there really is no way of forgetting the experience, there’s just something about the products and the shops atmosphere that makes you so happy. It’s addictive and leaves you wanting to go back even if it is just for a quick browse.

I know other companies have tried to do spin off’s of bubble bars and bath bombs etc but let’s be honest, Lush outshines every other cosmetic company out there. When it comes down to natural, cruelty free products that are exciting, fresh and handmade with love, Lush Cosmetics is where the talent’s at.

Welcome to my blog, I hope you like Lush because if you don’t you’re in completely the wrong place!
