So I didn’t do an empties post last month, but I’ve collected plenty of stuff to show you since my last post! I’ve been collecting it all in my cute Oxmeet tote bag from The Blogger Programme – much more stylish to have on the bathroom door handle than a plastic bag! Shall we get going? Continue reading
Well, despite the occasion drop (flood) of rain, we’re well and truly out of winter, and it’s time to switch up my skincare routine a bit! My skin tends to be better the warmer the weather gets, plus I’ve discovered some fantastic new products that have made their way into the regular crowd on the bathroom shelf…
In the morning, I tend to favour slightly lighter products, while I keep a heftier moisturisation up in the evening, but still lighten things up a little. Continue reading
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
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…
I’d never thought to add a serum to my skincare routine, let alone a solid serum, until I received this little wonder product in my #Oxmeet goody bag. I’ve been trialling the Lush Full of Grace Serum Bar for the last couple of weeks, and I really like it! Continue reading
I haven’t done a monthly favourites post for a little while, but this month there’s lots of things I’ve been loving! Continue reading
If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that I love rose products, so I was thrilled to be given this cute little Rose bubble bar in my Lush #Oxmeet goody bag – and to be honest with you, I’ve already stocked up on a couple more! Continue reading
Lush’s Emotional Brilliance is a widely varied range of highly pigmented liquid eyeliners, eyeshadows and lipsticks – these are definitely targeted at the higher-end of the high street market, at £14.50 a colour, but the richness of the formula makes these worth saving up for. I’ve previously reviewed Decisive, a classic red lipstick, and Motivation, a metallic teal liner, and they’ve become fixtures in my make up bag. When I was in Lush last week for the #OxMeet blogger meet up, I was thrilled to find Sophisticated*, a pearly taupe eyeshadow, in my goody bag, and couldn’t help but add Fantasy, a gold eyeliner, myself. Continue reading
Just a quick review today! I picked up Lush’s Whoosh temple balm in the half-price Christmas sale. This is supposed to be a headache-soothing balm which you apply to your temples – they claim it perks you up and keeps you awake! Continue reading
Hello! I’m finally back! I’m on my Easter break and have time to blog at last – it’s been pretty crazy here. Still, your regular service resumes, and just in time for spring.
This big orange beauty, the Brightside bubble bar, is part of this year’s Easter range at Lush. It’s a returning favourite from last year, and I definitely had to stock up this time round. Scented with The Sun perfume, this is an amazingly orangey bubble bar – it has three different kinds of orange in it, which makes for an incredibly strong, uplifting citrus bath. This is the perfect way to convince yourself that spring is on its way. Even if it’s cold outside, this will make you feel like you’ve just been skipping through a field in the sunshine!
It’s also gorgeous. This is one of the biggest bubble bars that Lush does, of a similar size to the Comforter, and although this year it looks a little smaller, it’s also a lot chunkier, so I think it balances out. I can easily get 10 baths out of a bar this big, with a huge amount of bubbles, so Brightside is well worth the money (£4.50). I love how sunny and cheerful it looks – the one downside to all that orange, of course, being that your bath water looks a little… interesting. But since that’s usually hidden under mounds of bubbles, it’s not too big a problem!
Brightside is an absolute favourite of mine, and I’d recommend it to anyone who likes fun, fresh scents. Did you try it last year? Have you got one this year?
