|9. Candy Mountain Bubble Bar (Christmas Only), 10. Snow Fairy Shower Gel (Christmas only), 11. Rock Star Soap
Over the festive season my mum and I gathered quite a collection of Lush products between the two of us, with my sale haul and my mum being lucky enough to get the massive Lush Legends box for her birthday. Lucky for me, my mum and I have always ended up sharing all of our Lush products – especially gift boxes – as we each have slightly differing tastes so don’t always like everything in each of our boxes. We’re very prone to swapping! Anyway, I thought that it was only right I gave you a little insight in to my all time favourite products from Lush!
1. Popcorn Lip Scrub
I’m obsessed with Lush’s lip scrubs, they’re super yummy and great at getting rid of dry skin on my forever chapped lips. I got Popcorn in one of the gift boxes I bought in the sale and use it so much! It definitely tastes like buttery popcorn. I personally wouldn’t buy one on it’s own as I don’t feel I can justify spending £6 on this little pot but you definitely get a LOT of use out of the pots. I use Popcorn multiple times a day and I’ve barely dented the pot.
2. Gorgeous Face Cream
Wow. I did not realise how expensive this moisturiser was! Again, I have a few little pots of this from various gift boxes so have never actually purchased a bigger pot. If it wasn’t for the price I would definitely buy myself a pot once my collection runs out but I just cannot even begin to justify that price! It’s a slightly heavier formula than I’m used to and I don’t love the smell, but it has worked absolute wonders on my normally rather dry skin.
3. Bubblegum Lip Scrub
This is the exact same as the popcorn flavoured scrub in that it is absolutely delicious and works like a dream! This is probably my favourite of the two scrubs but it is really sweet, I know my mum prefers the popcorn one.
4. Happy Hippy Shower Gel
I’ve noticed lately that there’s quite a difference between my shower products and my bath products, basically in my shower I like citrus but in my bath I like sweet, girly scents. Happy Hippy is my absolute favourite shower gel, it smells gorgeous and leaves my skin nice and soft. It’s perfect for waking you up in the morning! I first got this in a gift box for my birthday and have repurchased it myself quite a few times since.
5. Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly
This. Smells. Like. Heaven. I remember being very intrigued by the shower jellies at Lush but I had never had the chance to try one until my mum got this one in the Lush Legends box. It was love at first scrub! It’s a strange experience using a jelly, but I could definitely get used to it. It’s really gentle on my skin which I love and the fragrance lasts for ages. I’m definitely going to be repurchasing this when this tub runs out!
6. Yuzu & Cocoa Bubbleroon
I’m a big fan of the Bubbleroons, and I’ve tried all of them at some point. I think it’s safe to say that this is my favourite variation, it smells lovely – kind of like a chocolate orange. You get plenty of use out of these little bars, they’re really easy to break in to segments for multiple baths!
7. Butterball Bath Ballistic
I’m not a massive fan of bath bombs, I much prefer bubbles, but I will happily make an exception for this. I adore the lovely vanilla scent and it leaves my skin beautifully soft! It’s great for a little treat. I tend to use this with a tiny bit of a bubble bar mixed in for some bubbles too.
8. Tiny Hands Hand Serum
I was a bit perplexed by this at first. It’s basically a solid hand lotion, whereas I originally thought it was a soap. After discovering that it wasn’t a soap I finally managed to use it properly and loved it! My hands get really dry during the winter months and this is my saviour instead of a greasy lotion.
9. Candy Mountain Bubble Bar
This is my all time favourite bubble bar – sadly it’s only around at Christmas! The best way to explain this bubble bar is that it smells like candyfloss. If you saw Katy Perry on her California Dreams Tour it smells like that. I’ve had so many of these bubble bars over Christmas and I’m down to my last four and trying desperately to make them last! I’m going to be gutted when they’re finished, roll on Christmas 2013.
10. Snow Fairy
Snow Fairy is also one of my favourite shower gels (for bath use – it’s sweet!) but again it’s also only available at Christmas. Snow Fairy is THE Christmas product from Lush and it always sells out so quickly on sale day but it’s in most of the Christmas gift boxes too. The smell is hard to describe, but it’s very sweet and sugary. I’ve found that the scent hangs around for ages after the bath so I love to use it before I’m going out.
11. Rock Star Soap
I’m not keen on solid soaps, I find them awkward and they make me very clumsy, but Rock Star soap is different. It’s probably the scent, again it’s like all of my favourite Lush products in that it smells very sweet. It lathers really well, but sadly it doesn’t really moisturise however I don’t find it drying either. It’s not something I’d purchase for myself but I’m always very happy when it pops up in gift boxes!
12. Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Lotion
I have incredibly dry skin on my arms and legs so I buy a lot of moisturiser and this is one of my firm favourites. Most Lush moisturisers come in pots which I don’t really like, but this is one of their lightest moisturisers which apparently merits a bottle – not that I’m complaining. This is definitely a lovely and light moisturiser and it soaks in really well, as well as smelling great which is always a bonus!
13. Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner
I’ve only used this a couple of times so far, but I love it. It’s like a super moisturising mask for your skin. Like I said before I have issues with dry skin, so so far this has been perfect for me. The only thing I don’t like about it is I feel like I’m wasting a lot of it as you wash it off, but that’s just my silly perception as it does wonders for my skin.
14. You’ve Been Mangoed Bath Melt
This has made this list pretty much based on the smell alone. I love mango scented things, despite not being overly keen on the fruit itself. This melt leaves me smelling lovely and my skin nice and smooth. Like the bath bomb I tend to use this with a little bit of bubbles as I find it hard to have a bath without them! It’s great for a little treat.
15. The Comforter
Aside from Candy Mountain, this is my favourite bubble bar. For one, it makes the bath pink, which is definitely a bonus in my eyes! It smells gorgeous, the description says blackberry but it reminds me of lollipops that I used to love when I was little! They come in massive chunks but as they’re so easy to break up so you can get multiple uses out of one bar. I find that a really small piece gives you plenty of bubbles and colour!
What are your Lush favourites, any recommendations for me to try out? I’m really interested in the fresh face masks, I think I’ll have to treat myself to a couple of them next.
