Lovely Boyfriend’s Lush Haul

I had some very exciting news about a job over the weekend, which means I’m temporarily back in Oxford!

I’m going to be working with Oxford Fashion Week on the Ashmolean’s Dress Up LiveFriday evening – I’ll be telling you a bit more about that in the next couple of days, but I’m super excited to be involved, and ever so proud of my little blog for helping me to get the job. In the meantime, check out their blog to keep up to date:

Apparently, lovely Boyfriend is also proud of me, and I arrived back at his house, laden with suitcases, to find a little pile of Lush presents as a congratulations – what a sweetie πŸ™‚ So what did he get?



A Rosie gift set, and a big chunk of Miranda soap! The perfect pick of old favourites for someone as rose obsessed as me, and something new that I’ve never tried before.

DSCF2566Miranda is a very pretty soap – a creamy pale green with bright fruity chunks set in it. It also smells incredible, with exotic fruits like kiwi and bergamot, but with something beautifully floral (probably the ylang ylang) that keeps it from smelling too much like a fruit salad, and just a touch of creaminess to make this feel really luxurious. I can’t wait to jump in the shower with this – I think it’ll be perfect to combat thatΒ I-don’t-want-to-wake-upΒ morning feeling.


I think Rosie might be my perfect Lush gift set, in as much as I could ever choose one! Inside this pretty box is a selection of beautiful rose products:

  • Rose Queen bath bomb
  • Rose Jam bubbleroon
  • Amandopondo bubble bar
  • Ro’s Argan body conditioner

All of these are well-established favourites of mine (I might have gone a bit mad and ordered half a litre of the limited edition Rose Jam shower gel, I love the scent that much) and they all work wonderfully together to create a rosy paradise in your bathroom!


This is such a thoughtful present – I can see lots of thank-you cake getting made in the next couple of weeks!

What would be your dream Lush present?

      • I’m looking for a lush face mask, and need recommendations as I’m finding it too difficult to choose. I’ve tried catastrophe cosmetic and cupcake and don’t like them both. My skin is quite dry as well. Any ideas?

        • What didn’t you like about them? The scent, or the effects?
          I’d definitely recommend Oatifix – it’s the one that’s most targeted at dry skin, and it’s really tasty smelling! If it’s sweet food scents that bother you though, I’d recommend The Sacred Truth or Love Lettuce. LL is more for oily skin, but it’s very soothing, and ST is for older skin but is very moisturising πŸ™‚

          • I didn’t like the effects of them! Yes I’ve tried a sample of oatifix and it is really nice but I’m not sure whether to get that or Ayesha or the sacred truth. It’s so hard!
            I have drier skin by the way, and I also have eczema so I don’t think love lettuce is suitable for me! πŸ™‚

  1. OMG they sell a Rose Jam Shower gel!? I, kid you not, I am in LOVE with their Rose Jam Bubble Bar. It smells insanely good. I will have to scour the UK LUSH to find this Rose Jam Shower Gel you speak of! Thanks for the post, I never would have known!

Say hello - it'll make my day!
