LUSH Valentines Haul | A Little Pamper Time






You guys are all probably a bit sick of reading LUSH valentines post from pretty much every blogger ever, but it's pretty much the only valentines tradition I get involved in. Yes, me and my boyfriend like to spend the day together and get cute cards, but we don't tend to buy in to the expensive meals, outfits and presents game. 

So, to 'celebrate', I've been having a little pamper this weekend. I'm not the greatest bath fan - I usually get in and sit there for about two minutes before my anxiety kicks in and I end up all 'OH MY GOD I NEED TO BE DOING THINGS, NOT WASTING MY TIME LYING IN A POOL OF MY OWN DIRT' and it turns out to be totally unrelaxing and I end up feeling worse than when I got in.

BUT, I've had a revolutionary weekend! Last night I got my elderflower and prosecco tealights (which you can read more about in my recent home ware post) and placed them all around my bathroom. Then I added some fresh PJs, my fluffy dressing gown (far, far away from the flames - that thing is like my baby) and my LUSH unicorn horn bubble bar. This is the favourite of so many bloggers and now I see why. It smells of lavender, which is so relaxing, and is rainbowy coloured and totally turns your bath pink. Like, what more could you want?

Despite the unicorn horn being so beautiful, it wasn't my favourite product that I picked up. This award has to go to the lover lamp bath bomb, which is the best bath bomb I've ever used! It smells of vanilla and oranges, which made me feel totally sweet and fresh, whilst the soap hearts it released made it the perfect Valentines treat.

Sex bomb isn't strictly part of LUSH's valentines range, but hey, a lot of us like a little extra treat on Valentines day *cue wink emoji*. This contains Jasmine oil, which is an aphrodisiac and made the pretty deep pink bath colour you can see in the water picture above.

Prince Charming and Roses All the Way are all about making your skin feel a little bit better on a daily basis. I was actually a bit disappointed with the shower gel - I expected something sweet and maybe floral for Valentines day but instead was hit with a waft of grapefruit which totally jarred with my colour prejudice for this deep pink gel. However, I think the roses soap totally made up for that. As well as being super softening, it also smells like, you guessed it, roses, but without being too overpowering.

Finally we have the kiss lip scrub. I'm a big fan of the mint julips one (which totally has NOTHING to do with the fact that it tastes like after eights, nothing!), but this may have topped it. The little edible hearts in the scrub make it such a cute addition to any Valentines collection, and LUSH lip scrubs are amazing for softening your lips.

Have you picked anything up? What's your favourite from the collection?

  3. This is such a great haul and loved your mini review on each products! I desperately want to try the Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar. Every time I see it in the store I think of how pretty it looks. I also love the LUSH lip scrubs, I am currently using the popcorn one. So I think I'll have to get the Valentine's one too.:D
