More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb from Lush

More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb

The very first thing I noticed when I was presented with the More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb was its delicious scent. I’m a huge fan of anything pink so the fact its scent was what first caught my undivided attention says a lot about this bath bomb.

The More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb is designed in the shape of a mini pink teapot, decorated with a pinch of blue cornflowers just like the Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb, it’s very easy on the eye.

The cornflowers aren’t its only decoration either, the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb also contains an Earl Grey tea bag in its centre, attached is its tea bag label that reads the bath bombs name.

The More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb also contains a long list of ingredients, these include bergamot oil, green tea absolute and neroli oil to name just a few. Its scent put simply is the most desirable  Lush scent I have ever come across.

A bold statement I know but it’s scent is just so incredibly moreish. There is just something about the blend of bergamot and neroli oil that is so addictive.

It has a pleasant fruity fragrance, sweet but subtle. It reminds me very much of the Chameleon bath bombs scent. I want to smell of it ALL the time.

If Lush do not recreate this bath bombs scent in to other product formats I’m going to be incredibly disappointed. After all, they did it for the Goddess bath bomb in a very short space of time, why not for this gorgeous bath bomb too? in my personal opinion this bath bomb is a thousand times better than the Goddess bath bomb, just saying…

Lush, I alongside many others within the community really want you to make this products scent into every format possible. PLEASE!!! – I can’t stress my need for this scent enough! As soon as the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb hits the water there is an explosion of pink foam.

The bath bomb dances around the waters surface with the tea bags label in tow. The blue cornflowers become loose and spread out on the waters surface. For its size the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb does fizzle away quite quickly.

Once the bath bomb has almost dissolved the Earl Grey tea bag escapes from its bath bomb exterior, spouting a little stream of bright orange bubbles from it. Something I wasn’t expecting at all.

The water left behind by this bath bomb is the most beautiful shade of pink that I have seen from any Lush product before. It rivals the pinkness left behind by both the Think Pink bath bomb and Comforter bubble bar. The water is silky smooth and my skin laps it up.

The very best thing about this bath bomb is that its scent stays with you on your skin hours and hours after getting out of the bath. I won’t bore you any more by talking about its scent, all I have left to say is it was very hard to not eat myself after using it. 😉

My only complaint about this bath bomb is its staggering price, at almost £8 per bath bomb I can’t afford to stock up on these before Mothers Day is through. Something that has really struck a chord with me.

I don’t normally mention price in my reviews but for this one I feel I had to, I plead once more to Lush, PLEASE MAKE MORE PRODUCTS WITH THE MORE TEA AND SYMPATHY BATH BOMBS SCENT! and make sure they’re a little bit cheaper too please! 😋

Chamomile Lawn Soap from Lush

Chamomile Lawn Soap.png

The Chamomile Lawn Soap from Lush is 1 of 4, 3D printed soaps that were in the Mother’s Day 2018 collection. One reason it has taken me so long to get to the point of reviewing each of these soaps are because of how pretty they are. I simply just didn’t want to rub away at their beautiful and intricate designs. Never-the-less soap is meant to be used and eventually I got around to giving them a go.

The Chamomile Lawn soap has 3 perfect chamomile flowers etched into it. Each soap is a bold, grassy green colour and packed full of calming ingredients making it the perfect soap to use after a long, hard day. Containing lavender, chamomile and neroli, Chamomile Lawn helps you wind down, relax and sets you up for a restful evening and hopefully good night’s sleep.

Scent wise the Chamomile Lawn soap’s most noticeable ingredient has to be the neroli oil. With Chamomile Lawn containing both lavender and neroli oil it is easily mistaken as sharing its scent with the Unicorn Horn bubble bar. Both are indeed very similar, the Chamomile Lawn soaps inclusion of chamomile oil however gives the soap a much stronger more rounded scent than the Unicorn Horn, it’s an almost earthy scent in ways.

The unique shape of the 4 Mother’s Day, 3D printed soaps not only makes them easy to display but also helps when it comes down to gripping them during use. I was worried that its size would cause me to have problems keeping a hold of it in use, this however wasn’t at all a problem.

Normally I would rarely use a bar of soap for anything more than just washing my hands. I however found that Chamomile Lawn lathered up easily and had a really creamy consistency so I decided to use it in the shower. A little of Chamomile Lawn also appears to go a long way, this unfortunately wasn’t the case for all of the Mother’s Day 3D soaps, we will however save that for their own review!

Although I didn’t find using Chamomile Lawn in the shower a particularly moisturising experience, my skin did feel well cleansed and soothed after use. A quick splash of Lush’s Dream Cream once I was out of the shower, helped hydrate my skin where the Chamomile Lawn soap had left me needing a hydration boost. I like to pair Chamomile Lawn with the Dream Cream body lotion as their scents are fairly similar. Overall I really enjoyed this Mother’s Day soap, it’s as good in use as it is beautiful.

Incredible Mum Bath Bomb from Lush

Incredible Mum Bath Bomb

The Incredible Mum is a superhero shaped bath bomb that was first released by Lush in 2018. Its name makes it very obvious that it is a part of the Mother’s day range, and what an incredible Mother’s day range Lush have showcased this year!

The Incredible Mum Bath Bomb is quite unique when it comes down to its design. One half is orange, the other half a beautiful shade of hot pink. Its top half also has a raised, purple superhero eye mask. Incredible Mum also comes with a superhero, paper cape that is sandwiched between both the orange and pink sides.

Containing bergamot, orange flower absolute and ylang ylang oil, I knew I’d really like this bath bomb long before I had even had a chance to sniff its fruity and soft floral fragrance. Its scent isn’t the same as (but reminds me of) 2017’s Cupid bath bomb.

Both Cupid and the Incredible Mum bath bombs have bergamot and limonene in. I figure that this is what my nose picks up on when I tie the two products together fragrance-wise. I love Incredible Mums refreshing scent, although I am afraid that I am a little biased as anything that contains bergamot oil is always irresistible to me!

As soon as the Incredible Mum bath bomb comes into contact with the bath water there is an explosion of orange, pink and purple. The bath bomb dances around the water’s surface sending swirls of pink and orange patterns. As Incredible Mum charges around the bath spilling out all of that colour, it is followed by its yellow and pink, paper cape.

Although Incredible Mum is quite the fast fizzer, it is still one of my favourite products from this years Mother’s day line. Its scent stays with you throughout the whole of your bath while also remaining on your skin for several hours after getting out of the bath too. It not only leaves you smelling great and feeling physically brighter but also softens and hydrates your skin so well that you don’t even need to moisturise once out of the tub.

INCREDIBLEmum

Overall I am very pleased with the Incredible Mum bath bomb. True, it is nothing compared to the Roller bath bomb – a past Lush cult-favourite for Lushies around the mother’s day period. It is however quite the product just for its unique design and scent, CAPE AND ALL.

Many people have asked what happens to the paper cape once the bath bomb has dissolved. It’s made of paper and doesn’t dissolve alongside the bath bomb, it’s exactly the same as the secret paper notes you used to find in the Blackberry and Fizzbanger bath bombs but just on a much bigger scale.

The only negative thing I want to say about this bath bomb is in regards to its name. I honestly don’t think what I’m about to say is a huge issue BUT not everyone has a great relationship with their parents, (I dread Father’s day, I know I shouldn’t feel weird about enjoying that line of products but I do.)

acs_0089

For example, I feel that the Roller bath bomb sold well (not just because of its level of perfection) but because it wasn’t completely entwined by its name with Mother’s day. Unfortunately not everyone has an ‘Incredible Mum’ and I wouldn’t want anyone to feel as if they need to miss out on this product because of this.

The Madame President bath bomb that was new to this year, alongside Incredible Mum was a fabulously empowering product for women and I think Lush missed a trick by making the Incredible Mum’s name so ‘Mother’s Day’. I cannot stress enough how good this bath bomb was in every other aspect though, I am very sad that I didn’t get the chance to stock up on it.

Mum, Look What I Made For You Bath Bomb from Lush

Mum, Look What I Made for You Bath Bomb.png

The Mum, Look What I Made For You Bath Bomb is yet another beautiful product that Lush released as a part of their 2018, Mother’s Day line. With this bath bomb I think Lush have captured the cutest and most innocent of concepts perfectly. Designed to look just like one of those pictures you painted for a loved one as a kid, it’s the perfect gift for anyone you look up to, not just your mum.

Although I quite enjoyed last years flower-shaped bath bomb the Ups-A-Daisy, there’s just something about Mum, Look What I Made For You that is that little bit more desirable to me.

If you were a fan of the Cherryish body scrub from this years Valentine’s range, then it is very likely that you’d enjoy this bath bomb too. Its soft cherry-sweet fragrance is very much like the Cherryish’s scent. This surprised me a great deal as when I very first learnt of Mum, Look What I Made For Yous ingredients I would never have associated the 2 products together.

As well as having a wonderfully warm and inviting scent that rivals the likes of the Comforter bubble bar, the Mum, Look What I Made For You bath bomb is also quite easy on the eye. As soon as the Mum, Look What I Made For You bath bomb hits the water there is an explosion of colour. It’s not quite on par with the colours created by the, The Experimenter bath bomb but is close enough to impress the likes of me. Out of it bursts yellows, oranges, pinks and blues.

It’s scent although gentle, lasts the whole bath. It is a fairly slow dissolver too meaning it puts on an incredible show, the colours and swirls of the bath bomb in the water creates bath art galore. The photographs I have captured of the Mum, Look What I Made for You in action does the bath bomb no justice at all. You really do have to experience it for yourself to see it’s true potential.

As well as the Mum, Look What I Made For You bath bomb being visually pleasing it also has skin-soothing properties. Used alongside the Cherryish body scrub you’ll be left with hydrated, smooth and beautifully buffed skin. Even without the use of the Cherryish body scrub, I find that the Mum, Look What I Made For You bath bomb just on its own is a real treat for dull, tired skin.

After a good soak in a Mum, Look What I Made For You bath, your skin is left delicately fragranced with its warming cherry-sweet scent for the best part of the next day. At first I wasn’t 100% sure that I liked the scent but after falling in love with Cherryish I couldn’t resist buying a couple of the Mum, Look What I Made For You bath bombs and I have no regrets on stocking up on it either!

Mum in a Spin Bubble Spinner from Lush

Mum In A Spin Bubble Spinner

The Mum in a Spin Bubble Spinner is yet another brand new release from Lush’s Mother’s Day line. Packed with a long list of relaxing ingredients including both lavender and tonka absolute, it’s a must try product for all, not just mum’s. When Lush first released the bubble bar equivalent of a fidget spinner I honestly had no idea what a fidget spinner was.

I have since learnt that a fidget spinner is a small toy comprising of two or three prongs arranged around a central bearing. They are designed to be spun by the fingers as a means of improving concentration and a reliever of stress.

Although the bubble bar equivalents of a fidget spinner do not work in quite the same way, (the water from the tap is what essentially makes the bubble spinner spin) I can see why they are so popular. Getting in on the fidget spinner craze is a very clever move on Lush’s part, their original creation of a Bubble Spinner sold very well which is why we have now been presented with a brand new bubble spinner product, the Mum in a Spin.

 

Mum in a Spin is a reusable bubble bar, much like the first bubble spinner that Lush created it has a wooden pin in its middle. This allows the bubble bar part of it to spin as the tap water hits it just like a water mill. It has 3 spokes, two of them are decorated with the letter ‘M’ and the third with a love heart spelling out Mum/Mom.

Reusable bubble bars are slightly different to the normal bubble bars, you don’t have to break a reusable bubble bar up to use it, you simply run it under the tap to create bubbles. Once you have the desired amount of bubbles you then put it somewhere it can dry off, ready for the next time you want to use it.

As Mum in a Spin is submerged under running tap water, its scent fills the room. It shares its scent with the much loved Twilight bath bomb, making it the perfect night-time-bath treat. As the bubble bar is run under the tap copious amounts of bubbles begin to form, the water also becomes a stunningly bright pink. Overflowing with ingredients that have been carefully put together to help you wind down, it didn’t take very long for me to feel the stresses of the day melting away as I let myself lay back underneath the blanket of fluffy white, Twilight scented bubbles.

Sometimes I find that the reusable bubble bars don’t create quite as many bubbles as the ordinary bubble bars do, I found that with Mum in a spin this wasn’t the case at all. You can get 3 very generously bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Mum in a Spin. Another trait that reusable bubble bars tend to have is that they don’t create as vividly colourful water as their ordinary counterparts, this wasn’t the case for Mum in a Spin either, I was very happy to be bathing in such a beautiful and bold shade of pink water.

Another thing that impressed me about the Mum in a Spin bubble spinner was that its scent lasted throughout the whole bath, it also lasted on my skin once I was out of the bath too. There is nothing better than stepping out of a Mum in a Spin bubble bath followed by slathering yourself up with Sleepy body lotion.

I know some people are eager for Lush to start creating new scents as they’re growing bored of the same scents coming back time and time again. There is however something quite special about revisiting much loved scents through a different product format, I don’t think I could ever get bored of the Twilight scent. Overall I am very impressed with the Mum in a Spin bubble spinner, it ticks every box for what I like in a bubble bar. I will therefore be stocking up on them before 2018’s Mother’s Day period is through.

Madame President Bath Bomb from Lush

Madame President Bath Bomb

The Madame President Bath Bomb was the product from Lush’s 2018 Mother’s Day line that I was first drawn to. It has vibrant and bold colours, one half of it is sky blue and the other a glorious hot pink. I also couldn’t help but ‘ooo!’ at the 4 brilliant-white-stars that are decorated on its blue half. To look at, it reminds me ever so slightly of the latest version of the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb.

It wasn’t until I had the Madame President bath bomb in my hands that I realised the pink side of it was decorated with one, large gold star too. Discovering this made the bath artist in me just as nervous to use it as I was excited. I couldn’t wait to see what it did once placed in the bath water, I knew that it was of course going to be a really good show but I didn’t know what side to put in the water first? – a struggle I am sure a lot of Lushie’s have had with this bath bomb, especially if they like to take photos and not miss any bath art opportunities like me!

Just to clarify the stars in the Madame President bath bomb are not bath melts like the ones found in the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb. Which I guess could be a good or bad thing depending on how much you like star shaped, bath melts in your bath bombs… The similarities of the Madame President and Shoot for the Stars bath bombs are purely only decorational. All they share is a similar, star inspired design.

At first Madame Presidents scent really confused me. There were elements to it that I loved but also elements to it that I couldn’t quite work out. Once I had taken it away from all of the other Mother’s Day products it was a lot easier on my nose. The Madame President bath bomb is definitely one of those Lush products you need to sniff on its own before you decide if you like it or not.

Adding to that, even once I had the Madame President bath bomb on its own I still wasn’t sure if I liked its scent. It’s a brand new to me Lush-scent and quite different to what we are all used to from Lush. It’s sweet and sour like the Plum Rain shower gel but at the same time it’s also bitter like the Frozen bath bomb. The grapefruit in Madame President is probably the most prominent ingredient in it which is why it does have such a bitter-sweet odour. It’s a very unique, fruity Lush scent to say the least.

There are many Lush scents that I haven’t been sure upon at first, a good example of this would be the Intergalactic bath bomb. It wasn’t until I tried it that I realised how good it actually was, over time it has gone from a product I wasn’t very keen on at all to my most used bath bomb. This is why I always make sure I try a Lush product before I reach my final verdict on it. I am pleased to announce that Madame President was another product that followed in the footsteps of the Intergalactic bath bomb, I now really quite enjoy its scent, that and the beautiful bath art it creates!

The bath art that Madame President creates is remarkable, it is right up there with the,  The Experimenter bath bomb colour and pattern wise. To better illustrate Madame Presidents bath art potential I recommend you check out the following two Instagram accounts; @SamanthaBBeautiful and @TheAberdeenLushie. They have both captured such beautiful examples of how visually pleasing the Madame President bath bomb can be.

Once the Madame President bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with dazzlingly-gorgeous, purple water decorated with a light sprinkling of golden shimmer. It creates one of those baths you never, ever want to get out of. Over all I am very impressed with the Madame President bath bomb, it went from a product I wasn’t at all sure about to one I adore in a flash. Please don’t let its initial, strange scent put you off, try it, you may very well grow to love it in the same way that I did.

Scrubee Body Butter from Lush

The Scrubee Body Butter has made its way on to my list of favourite, top 3 products from Lush’s 2017 Mother’s Day range. Scrubee is quite the product, it’s the perfect mix of both a body butter and exfoliator. It does a brilliant job at both hydrating and exfoliating your skin ALL at the same time.

I love a versatile product and this is why I hold Scrubee with such high regards. Containing plenty of soothing, antiseptic honey and creamy cocoa butter, Scrubee is an incredibly hydrating product that leaves your skin soft, hydrated and perfectly polished for days.

Scrubee also contains ground coconut shells and almonds, these have been added alongside the honey and cocoa to not only hydrate and soften skin but to gently exfoliate your skin too. Its scent is very similar to products with the Honey I Washed the Kids scent it however isn’t quite the same. There’s something a little bit more chocolatey about it than in products such as the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb.

17361499_1938074476421771_7871140354700630286_n

A little bit of the Scrubee body butter goes a very long way, upon my first use I overindulged way too much and as fabulous as my skin felt it was just a very obvious waste of product. Now, a quick rub of it on my arms, legs and torso suffices. I’ve used some of Lush’s solid exfoliating products before and they are great but they rarely last past 2 uses. My Scrubee is on use 5 now and it doesn’t look much different at all, it is only a tiny bit smaller from use, there’s plenty of it left yet.

Do make sure you leave it somewhere it can dry off properly though, being constantly wet will stop it from lasting as long.

I am really pleased with the Scrubee body butter, it suits my skin so well, it actually feels like it was made for me. I will be so sad to see these go once Mother’s Day 2017 is over, I however have 2 in my storage until and if they both last as long as my first one has I don’t need to worry about living without it for quite some time!
