Frog Prince Bath Bomb from Lush

frog-prince-bath-bomb

I can never resist trying out the mini seasonal bath bombs like Frog Prince. The small, character shaped bath bombs are more of a novelty to me, I however like to stock up on them as they make for excellent ingredients for some great Lush-bath-cocktails.

Other great character bath bombs that are of a similar size are Ickle Baby Bot, Spring Bunny and Butterbear.

The Frog Prince bath bomb has a floral scent that epitomises Valentine’s Day perfectly. It’s rich with jasmine, rose and ylang ylang oil and although I am not always a fan of the floral products the Frog Prince is one that I do enjoy using.

Frog Prince is a very green, frog shaped product that flaunts bright red bath-melt lips. Once placed in the water, the Frog Prince bath bomb starts to fizzle away sending small jets of green fizz across the water.

Considering its smaller size, I was very surprised that the Frog Prince bath bomb took a lot longer to fully dissolve than I had expected. The bright red lips are visible throughout and with a pout that Angelina Jolie would be jealous of there’s no guessing why…

Once the frog has fully dissolved the lips begin to melt. As the lips slowly bob around the water they create pretty red swirls that stand out like a neon sign up against the green tinted water.

Again, for such a small bath bomb I was amazed at how moisturising it was on my skin. The smaller bath bombs aren’t normally as hydrating as the larger ones so this was an unexpected surprise.

The last surprise from this bath bomb is the hidden note you get in it. I found a note with a picture of Lush Kitchen’s Sam on it, it says ‘Princess Sam was made to kiss you,’  It is such a cute touch to a lovely bath bomb.

I know I said at the start of this review that I like to get the smaller bath bombs such as the Frog Prince because I like to use them in Lush cocktails, Frog Prince however does work really well on its own. For such a small bath bomb it really is very, very impressive!

Love You, Love You Lots Soap from Lush

Love You, Love You Lots Soap.pngIf you was lucky enough to use last years Roses All the Way soap then you’d recognise that it and the Love You, Love You Lots Soap share a scent. In all honesty I was a little disappointed that they had dropped Roses All the Way, I loved the Alice in Wonderland theme around it BUT I also enjoy new products so welcomed the new soap with open arms.

I am not a huge user of bars of soap. I just prefer using shower gel/cream on my body as I find bars of soap can leave my skin really dry. Not all of them do though so I thought it was worth giving the Love You, Love You Lots soap a try.

When I first experienced this soap’s scent I was instantly reminded of the Rose Jam shower gel. It isn’t quite the same though, Love You, Love You Lots soap has a much softer floral tone to it. Alongside the floral tone there is a subtle, sweet and zingy aspect too. The more I use it, the more prominent the lemon oil in it appears to be. The scent compliments the time of year perfectly. The only negative point I feel I have to share about this soap is that I needed to work a lot harder to get a workable lather.

The Love You, Love You Lots soap did dry out my skin but I had expected that. The Sultana of Skin body conditioner however came to the rescue and all was well.

Sadly I don’t think its a soap I will want to stock up on before the season is over but, I am very glad that I tried it as I love revisiting Lush’s library of beautiful and unique scents through new products in all types of different formats.

Sultana of Skin Body Conditioner from Lush

sultana-of-skin-body-conditioner

When I see that the Lush Kitchen had added never-before-been-released Body Conditioners to their menu I squealed with delight. With my impending wedding only a few months away I could only afford 1 out of the 6 available. Choosing which one was such a hard decision to make, I however decided on the Sultana of Skin Body Conditioner as it shares its scent with the Blackberry bath bomb.

The Blackberry bath bomb is my favourite night time product. Magic is real, no other bath bomb helps me to wind down after a hard day better than the Blackberry. For me, Blackberry really does have magical properties because every time I use it I almost fall asleep in the bath, as a diagnosed insomniac this is a revelation and a half!

Although the Sultana of Skin body conditioners name doesn’t sound or is in any way familiar to the Blackberry bath bomb, I can safely say, now that I have my gigantic pot of it that it does share its scent and it is heaven in a tub.15965351_1908166806079205_2884945557339576823_nI always grab a small amount of a Lush body conditioner and then begin to work it into my body in a similar way to how you would a shower gel. I however focus a little bit more on the dry patches of my skin such as my elbows.

The Sultana of Skin body conditioner has a beautifully smooth texture that is a similar consistency to not-bits yogurt. As with most Lush products, the smallest amount of Sultana of Skin body conditioner goes a very long way. For the first 2 uses I was still using the excess cream that was on the lid.

As much as I enjoy the Snow Fairy and Christingle body conditioners there’s just something that extra bit special about Sultana of Skin. The fact I love the Blackberry Lush scent so much obviously helps a lot but it’s how it feels on my skin that really impresses me.16142402_1908166819412537_5605533859635902812_n

The Snow Fairy body conditioner is a lot heavier than Sultana of Skin, both are however just as hydrating as the other. I like how light the Sultana of Skin feels on your skin and I feel out of all the body conditioners that I have tried it is the one that has left my skin in the best condition. My skin doesn’t feel greasy at all, it’s perfect.

I am so, so impressed with the Sultana of Skin body conditioner, if I wasn’t getting married in a few months I would definitely buy the Butterball and Big Blue too… Maybe even a cheeky Lemony Flutter as well because the cuticle butter equivalent is fantastic.

Hopefully they bring out smaller pots soon so that I can get them too, I don’t know how they will beat the quality of Sultana of Skin as it’s a pot full of heaven in my eyes. Lush are however very good at surprising me, they always go above and beyond with every new product release which is why I always get so excited!

Christmas Angel Bath Bomb from Lush

Halo there, welcome to my very first Lush review of 2017. I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and are 3 days in to your best year yet, may it be filled with lots of Lush, happiness and good health…

I’ve been poorly myself so am getting back into blogging  after the Christmas break slower than I expected, hopefully I will be on the mend soon as we’re hurtling right into my impending wedding day a lot faster than I’d like, weddings don’t organise themselves… #HelpABrideOut

Although this review is a little late for Christmas, I wanted to get it up on my blog as I am very confident that the Lush Kitchen will feature it again as it always sells well and for good reason!
christmas-angel-bath-bombThe Christmas Angel Bath Bomb is a dusky pink, Angel shaped bath product that smells of mint-chocolate-chip ice cream.

Its design is undeniably cute. I love that Lush sometimes bring out products that aren’t just a ball of bicarb, giving their products faces and making them into characters gives them a desirable edge that provides them with an advantage when it comes down to sales.

The Abombinaball bath bomb, Mumkin bubble bar and Monsters’ Ball bath bombs are all perfect examples of best selling, character products.cabbgroupIf you’re into the super colourful bath bombs such as The Experimenter then the Christmas Angel probably isn’t for you. When I first got into Lush I thought the more colourful the bath bomb the better. With time I have however learnt to appreciate the not so in your face bath bombs.

Once placed in the bath, the Christmas Angel’s delicate mint-chocolate-chip ice cream scent immediately invites you in. It instantly begins to froth, slowly making a soft, milky-pink layer on the top of your bath water.

Hidden within the Christmas Angel’s ingredients is organic cocoa butter, soya milk powder and almond oil making it one of the most hydrating bath bombs I have ever used.

Not only does it hydrate, soften and pamper your skin it also leaves a subtle yet devastatingly moreish scent on it. Its scent although very delicate remains on your skin long after getting out of the bath, it always leaves me craving another.

Christmas Angel is notoriously slow to dissolve, some may not like this, I however quite enjoy the slow ones as I feel like I get that little bit longer to relax and enjoy it.

I’d love to see the Christmas Angel bath bomb in another format, a shower gel or body lotion equivalent would be out of this world.

Overall I really do like this bath bomb. Its scent and the light pink colour it leaves your bath water has a very calming effect on me. I also think it would work well in a cooler bath that you’d maybe have in the Summer months. This bath bomb is worth stocking up on and I will be buying it at every opportunity I get.
