If you know me, you will understand my Lush obsession! With the launch of the new Valentine’s range, I just couldn’t resist a trip to my local store to stock up on some new goodies! Money is a bit tight with the wedding this year, so I only picked up a few items – I would have gone mad if I’d not restrained myself!
First of all, I grabbed myself the new ‘Lover Lamp’ bath bomb (£3.95). I’d been eyeing this one up since the range launched, so it was top of my list for the mini splurge. I tried it out as soon as I got home and was not disappointed. The bath bomb fizzes nicely, unlike some of the others which produce more of a creamy foam, and releases an explosion of little red hearts. There were also three larger, red, cocoa butter hearts which gradually melted long after the bomb had dissolved. My skin was left feeling wonderfully moisturised, and smelling a little like chocolate orange – delicious!
My next purchase was the ‘Prince Charming’ shower cream (£4.95 for 100g bottle). Unlike the shower gels, I love the shower creams for the wonderful moisturising effect they have on my skin. With pomegranate juice and grapefruit oil, the smell is similar to a fruit salad, which suits me nicely as I’m not keen on floral scents. You only need a small amount to work up a lather, meaning you can hang onto this fruity treat for a little longer than other products!
Finally, I picked up a lovely duo of lip scrub and lip gloss, both called ‘The Kiss’ (£5.50 scrub, £5.95 gloss). My lips often suffer during the winter months, with the skin cracking and becoming very sore. The lip scrub is perfect for smoothing and removing dry skin and has the added benefit of tasting delicious, although don’t make the mistake I did by buying any for your children – I gave a tub to my daughter and it was gone within a day, no wonder she was hyper! The lip gloss is solid and comes in a handy twist tube for easy application. Not being one for bright lip colours, the gloss is perfectly suited for me as it leaves only a hint of sparkly pink which can only really been when the light hits it.
For those of you who live in the States, these products are also available (except for the bath bomb) and are retailing at the following prices:
Prince Charming - $9.95 for 3.3 fl. oz.
The Kiss Lip Gloss - $8.95
The Kiss Lip Scrub - $9.95
There are a various other products and gift sets available in the Valentine’s range this year, has anyone tried any others?
