Review: Bomb Cosmetics Bath Blasters – Pineapple Expressed and Lime and Coconut Parfait

I’ve just realised I never reviewed these little lovelies for you! I was given these as part of a Secret-Santa-type thing my theatre group did after our last play, and I never did find out who my mysterious benefactor was – if you’re reading this now, thank you very much! As much of a Lush fan as I am, I’m always keen to branch out, and these two bath blasters (aka bombs) from Bomb Cosmetics, Pineapple Expressed and Lime and Coconut Parfait, are perfect fruity scents for spring!  Continue reading

Birthday Lush Haul!

So, I was a very lucky girl on my birthday, and was given lots of awesome Lush bits to keep me pampered through the exam period… I thought I’d show you what I got! (Quick disclaimer – I definitely don’t mean to brag, I’m just excited to have new Lush stuff!) Continue reading

Review: Lush May Day Bath Bomb

An extra post for you today – aren’t you lucky! What’s the occasion? There’s a new limited edition bath bomb at Lush!

What, you hadn’t heard about it either? I was stunned, when I popped into Lush on the 1st, to find the new May Day bath bomb sitting pretty on the side. It’s only here until the end of May, and all the proceeds go towards anti-badger cull charities, which is an excellent thing in my book. The scent of this is likely to be a bit of a divisive one, so read on to find out what I thought…

Lush Valentine’s Day Haul Part Two <3

Did you see Part One, where I reviewed the Neon Love soap and Prince Charming shower gel? Well, I couldn’t help going back to Lush to pick up a couple more items from the Valentine’s Day Lush products…

So I came home with the Love Locket bath bomb and the Tender is the Night massage bar. As I mentioned in my last post, I think these are both pretty pricey (£6.95 and £6.50 respectively), but if that doesn’t put you off, then you should really enjoy these two sweet, girly products.

My Final Lush Christmas Haul…

Yes, kids, Christmas at Lush is finally over… With their traditional half-price sale on at Boxing Day, the last few Christmas products have been swept from the shelves, and we’re all left either revelling in our Christmas arrivals or lamenting products never to be seen again.

My stash of Lush products has been seriously augmented in the last week or so, both by Christmas present from lovely people, and by a bit of sneaky ordering of my own…

Lush Halloween!

Firstly, an apology: I’m sorry I’ve been AWOL. The amount of work I have this term hit me pretty hard and despite my best intentions, it’s been the blog that’s taken the brunt of my tiredness, leaving it pretty bare for the last couple of weeks.

Still, I’m resolved to get back to posting at least four times a week, and to start you off, here are some slightly belated mini reviews of the Lush Halloween products! These should still be around in shops, and are certainly online at lush.co.uk for a little while longer.

This majestic looking bath bomb is the Lord of Misrule. Continue reading

Yves Rocher Raspberry Goodies!

A little while ago, I won a giveaway over on Luchessa’s blog! I love Luchessa, she is one of the sweetest bloggers I know and has always been so supportive and friendly – plus her posts are really fun to read. Anyway, she hosted a giveaway a little while ago, and I won! I asked her to send it to my Oxford address, and I was so excited to pick up my parcel when term started…

And with good reason!

Little Lush Retro Haul

I have lovely friends. Lovely friends who go to Poole and buy me lovely goodies from the Lush Retro shop!

P1020640

For those of you who don’t know, as well as the current products stocked in Lush stores, Lush also has a range called Retro, which are discontinued items that have been brought back, but which are only available online or in their Poole HQ store. There are some permanent Retro bits, and some limited edition ones, so if you have a discontinued favourite, it’s worth checking their website from time to time. There are so many Retro bits on my wishlist!

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 🙂 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 that I-don’t-want-to-wake-up 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?
