If you’re a big Lush lover like us two, it can be quite sad after Christmas when the exclusive products leave us, but at least we only had to wait a few weeks for the new Valentine’s range to grace the shelves! This years collection features a range of different products, some new and some that have been around in previous years. We have to say we’re loving the new products this year from everything from the designs to the scents. The whole collection has this really nice sweet shop feel and every product is so unique. We kept our haul fairly small this year, mostly as we need to save money and we actually still have some of last years products left over!
Cupid Bath Bomb – £2.95
This is one of our favourite products from this years range for a few reasons. Firstly, it’s so cheap meaning you can stock up and not worry too much about spending loads. The design is also so cute and just shouts Valentine’s Day for us, we love the pastel pink shade too. Lastly, the fruity but floral scent is also lovely and reminds us of a mixture of sweets. It’s hard to explain but it reminds us of both Love Hearts and Parma Violets (likely due to it containing Violet Leaf Absolute!), which is great since sweets really remind us of Valentine’s Day. Cupid bath bomb shares its scent with Razzle Dazzle bath oil and is packed full of bergamot oil, lime oil and raspberry juice, giving it its refreshing sweet smell. Obviously it’s a fairly small bath bomb but it can be mixed with another bath bomb or a bubble bar to create the perfect Valentine’s bath cocktail!
Kiss Me Quick Wash Card – £2
If you’ve been to the Oxford Street store you’ll know that they sell exclusive ‘Wash Cards’ to use in the shower. We’ve never actually bought one, although we were really happy that these miniature sized ones are available in regular stores, as it means we now get to try out a wash card! They really are unique products and the idea is to rip a piece of and lather it up to use as a body wash. We were given a demo of the product in store and a small piece of the card lathered so well and left our skin feeling super soft! The product contains fresh apple pulp as well as lemon and lime oils, which leave a fresh fruity scent lingering on your skin.
Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar – £4.25
Unicorn Horn is a firm favourite for a lot of people. First of all, everyone loves unicorns and the pastel colours and the glitter make this bubble bar even better! This product is packed with lavender oil which gives it a really soothing scent, which may be quite unexpected if you’ve never tried Unicorn Horn before! When Unicorn Horn is crumbled under the tap, the water turns a magical lilac shade with a layer of silver lustre. This product is perfect when paired with Twilight bath bomb and makes the most relaxing bath cocktail!
Lovestruck Bubble Bar – £4.25
Lovestruck was one product that we were really excited about! We love the vibrant emoji themed design and we feel that it’s a really different sort of style for Lush. Even the scent doesn’t smell like something you’d find in Lush, but this isn’t a bad thing! The bubble bar is filled with lemon oil and geranium oil which gives it a unique uplifting citrus scent. Again this is another product which remind us of sweets in a way, maybe lemon sherbets or something but we can’t quite put our finger on it! We think it would go perfectly with Fizzbanger or Dragon’s Egg and we can’t wait to try it!
