LUSH mini haul

Hi everyone, as many girls (and guys) out there I am a BIG lush fan, even more so now I have moved out and have a bath in my my parents we only had a walk in shower and now I one of my favourite things after a long day is to run a hot bath and relax with the help of a lush product!

Recently I paid a visit to my local store to pick up a few goodies, some seasonal and some not so, and I thought I'd share them with you and also ask what your favourite Lush products are?

First up are bath bombs which I think are my favourite products out of the entire lush range, I find it such a treat to run a bath and add one of these babies to the water! The smell & colours are enough to relax me in and instance.

Father Christmas Bath Bomb
Obviously I haven't used the bath bomb yet so I have to use the Lush description on their website to describe it to you:
 Before making this, Father Christmas must have stopped at a sweet shop for stocking fillers because it smells like freshly spun candy floss. Soak away the hours in sweet, mouthwatering waters as the blushing red of Santa's cheeks fizz away to reveal a vivid, holly green centre. 
Wow doesn't that sound amazing! The smell is lovely and sweet and I've seen it described as having the same scent as the shower gel Snow Fairy - so I cant wait to try both together also I will try my hardest to save until December just to get me in the Christmas spirit.. but I'm sure I will be re-purchasing this one.

Intergalactic Bath Bomb
I was drawn to this particular bath bomb because of the vivid blue colour and the smell, which is quite literally out of this world (see what I did there?) It's very fresh and there is a slight mint undertone which I love, here is the Lush official description:

Ever wondered what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become the guardian of your own galaxy. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour sends your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way. Constellations swirl and pop, creating vibrant lustre vortexes in the night sky. Before you leap too far, rogue layers of vetivert and cedarwood take hold, evoking the warmth of human contact far from home and a hint of 80s aftershave. Return from your intergalactic brief encounter as the grounding scent brings you gently back from orbit. 
 Seriously! what an amazing description, its made me want to go use this now!

Dragons Egg Bath Bomb

As soon as I picked this one up and gave it a sniff I had to buy it - it smells of invigorating citrus which I love to use as a 'pick-me up' and I imagine it would be great to use in the morning to wake you up and give you a little boost. Lush says:
Dragon’s Egg makes bathtime exciting as it fizzes and crackles and changes the colour of your water to a gorgeous citrusy gold. Its scent is reminiscent of lemon sherbet, with a hint of jasmine, leaving you feeling great and ready for a good day. Its citrus scents leave you feeling transformed and invigorated.
Another lovely description, I think this bath bomb turns your bath a gorgeous orange / yellow colour and the photos I've seen of it look divine - another bath bomb I am excited to try!

Big Blue Bathbomb
This bath bomb caught my attention as it has seaweed in the centre, which I thought was unusual so I picked this one as my final bath bomb, the colour is gorgeous and it smells very clean and refreshing, but please let me use the Lush description as per their website:
This calming bath bomb evokes a summer’s day at the seaside: perfect for drifting off. Big Blue’s key ingredient is a type of kelp called arame seaweed, which softens in your hot bath water. Arame is rich in vitamins and minerals including iodine, which helps to regulate the metabolism. Sea salt softens the skin, helping to remove dead skin cells, while lemon oil clears the mind and, like lavender oil, is antiseptic and cleansing.
Ok so maybe this isn't very seasonal, as they say it evokes a summers day at the seaside but hey it will certainly be relaxing to use!

Snow Fairy shower gel
I need to make a confession, this is probably the most popular shower gel and I have heard stories of people buying in bulk to stock up on this limited edition shower gel but I have NEVER smelt it before! I hunted it down in my local store and was not disappointed! As we all know it has a sweet candy-floss like scent which I love - also I adore the colour! I am sure I will get through this quite quickly so may need to pay another visit to Lush before it runs out!

Santa's Lip Scrub
My final purchase was this little beauty, I had previously  bought the popcorn scented lip scrub many years ago and loved it, so when I saw this sitting in at the till point I was keen to make a purchase!
Firstly I love the vivid red colour (Very seasonal) and the smell is also really nice a mixture of Cola (which normally I don't like) and Cherries - this scrub will be perfect for this time of year when my lips do suffer and become dry very easily, I'll use this and then apply a lip balm and they feel a lot softer and smoother! Perfect.

What are your favourite LUSH products? I'd love to hear your recommendations?

Lots of Love
