Like many humans on the internet I am rather fond of a bit (ok, a lot) of Lush.
When they opened their new giant Oxford Street store a couple of months ago I was down there like a shot. I’ve probably spent a lot of money there since, but this was one ‘bag’ of stuff I got a month or two ago so I thought i’d do a little review as there were a couple of new things I tried. I’ve repurchased a few of these items since too.
What I picked up
(From L-R on 2nd picture starting at the pill! The shampoo bar is the middle item)
Cyanide Pill Bath Bomb – I think this was an Oxford Street only release when the shop opened, I can’t find it online and not sure if it was there when I went again the other week. But I actually really liked this bath bomb! It was super glittery inside and smelt very ‘almond’ like with a touch of sweetness. I’m not a huge ‘bath bomb’ person and I definitely prefer the bubble bars but I’d buy this one again if it was there for sure. I also am a bit of a sucker for novelty shaped things…
Butterball Bath Bomb – Butterball is one of the cheaper bath bombs at £2.65 so I usually pick up one or two every visit. I love the smell of Butterball and I wish they’d use it for more products – please let me know if they already do? I know there is butter bear but not sure what else. The cocoa butter makes it pretty moisturizing too, for a bath bomb.
Big Blue Bath Bomb – I’d never tried this bath bomb until recently, as I for some reason thought it might be quite drying. I suddenly decided I really liked the smell of it though. It’s quite salty with a tad of lemon, really refreshing and feels a bit like you’re bathing in the sea! It also has bits of seaweed in it for an added sea experience if you’re into that.
Rockstar Soap – Rockstar soap is one of my favourite Lush scents of all time as I love vanilla. But I can’t say I’m a huge soap person – only in the bath on occasion. Still, I can’t help but pick it up every now and again just for the smell. It also lasts for ages.
Seanik Shampoo Bar – I never tried any of the Lush shampoo bars until Seanik and I have been converted. I thought a bar on your head would be weird, but they foam up so well and last forever. Seanik is a sea salty and lemon scent which is for ‘bigger hair’ and as someone with rather flat hair, I think it does actually work pretty well. I’ve repurchased and will continue to use it so that’s saying something.
Karma Bubble Bar – Karma is my ALL time favourite Lush product. It lasts forever as it’s so big. You can use 1/4 for a bath so it always feels like the most value for money. The scent is also amazing. It’s so nice for a night time relaxing bath. It’s so moisturizing and leaves your body smelling like orange and patchouli. AND it’s glittery, and purple…
Sunnyside Bubble Bar – Like Karma I also adore this bubble bar. I’ve repurchased it a couple of times as it lasts for a couple of baths. It has a really fresh scent which makes it nice for a day time or morning bath.
Have you visited the Lush store in Oxford street? If not you totally should, it’s stupidly big and exciting. Not that I’m an enabler or anything.. x
