Mini Lush Haul

Do you guys remember the Valentine’s Day inspired Lush Haul that I posted just before Valentine’s? Well I’ve exercised inhuman self restraint, and actually haven’t been into Lush since then. I know, that’s insane, what the heck?

Well recently I decided that it had been too long since I’d been into Lush and shared with you guys what I’d bought, so that’s what I’m doing today!

I didn’t pick up very much because I do have a lot of bath products around at the moment, so I didn’t want to go overboard.IMG_2431Ceridwens Cauldron Bath Melt | After briefly talking to the assistant in Lush, we’d established that I like baths to be relaxing and moisturising, and I wanted to try out some products that had been newly introduced since my last visit. The assistant recommended this bath melt to me because it consists mainly of oats and cocoa butter, it’s perfect for sensitive skin. This bath melt is also reusable because it’s in a cloth bag, so you can just bob it around the top of your bath, lightly infusing it with the oats and cocoa butter, and use it directly onto your skin to lightly exfoliate and moisturise, all in one go!

Twilight Bath Bomb | Even the name of this bath bomb inspires the idea of relaxation and sleep. And that’s the entire purpose of this product. The fragrance itself is another element that has been designed to help you sleep, as lavender is a soothing and relaxing fragrance, used in aromatherapy to treat insomnia and aid restful sleep. I decided to pick this one up because, although it’s not new, I haven’t used it before, so I thought I’d try it out! I’m a big fan of a lavender scent, because I do find it to be insanely relaxing, and a perfect scent for just before bed.IMG_2435Sakura Bath Bomb | It’s not secret that I love Japan and cherry blossoms, to this bat bomb was another no brainer for me to pick up. At first I thought that this bath bomb was just really pretty, but then when I smelt it, I realised that the scent was unusually uplifting and strong. Lush describes it as “Calming mimosa and jasmine oils are complemented by lemon oil and orange flower to bring to mind the smell of this colourful season.” and I think that perfectly embodies how this bath bomb smells, it’s incredibly fresh and uplifting, perfect for a bath first thing in the morning.

Yoga Bomb Bath Bomb | This is another bath bomb that I hadn’t tried before, but had been tempted by. The sales assistant told me that this bath bomb is perfect for detoxing and after working out, hence the name. And as this bath bomb is so usually overlooked, I’m going to share a little secret with you. It isn’t just an orange bath bomb. Once it begins fizzing, it actually turns your bath into an array of orange, turquoise and purple shades, so give it a go!


That’s everything I picked up in Lush, I know, you can applaud at how much self restraint I showed, ha! I hope you enjoyed this post and I convinced you to try out some products that you’ve overlooked or have been meaning to try for a long time.

What is your favourite Lush product of all time?

March Favourites

It’s that time again and I know everyone says it, but I cannot believe how quickly this year is going already. So without further ado, here are some of the things that I have been thoroughly loving this month!


bath and hairspray

Lush’s Dragon’s EggThis is hands down, one of my favourite products that Lush do. It’s one of my favourites on account of many reasons, firstly, just to look at it, you’d assume it looks quite simple and maybe even a bit boring. But when it meets your bath; that’s when the true magic unveils itself. This bath bomb actually turns your bath water gold, and on top of all of that magic, it smells amazing, and if you don’t want to put the whole thing in your bath, you can split it and get two amazing baths out of it!

Radox’s Unwind Bath SoakAs you may be able to tell, I’ve really been enjoying a good bath recently, and nothing makes a bath more relaxing than bubbles. This product is almost always on some kind of deal, so I’d really recommend picking up some and giving it a try. They come in various types of ‘soak’ and you can select whichever one you feel that you’re craving, for example, ‘Muscle Therapy’, ‘Moisture Soak’ and ‘Nourish’. I’ve been loving ‘Unwind’ because it has a really deep, relaxing smell and it turns your bath water into a pure blue. Perfect for at the end of a long day or whenever you’re feeling a bit tense.

Salon Professional’s Extra Hold Hairspray | I have actually been loving this product for months. It does exactly what it says on the tin, providing extra hold for any style that you may choose. It prevents fly aways, and keeps your style in place all day. It’s not sticky, and something that never seems to come into the game of hairspray; it smells amazing. It doesn’t leave you choking on any fumes and it actually leaves your hair smelling amazing.


headphones

Frends Layla HeadphonesI’ve been after these headphones for a couple of months, and this month, I found them on offer by Urban Outfitters, so I grabbed them. I absolutely adore these headphones because they aren’t huge, like most headphones, instead they are really small (perfect for people with small heads and ears such as myself). They have a really beautiful design, and are quite cute and girly, the perfect overhead headphones for me. Frends actually designed these with jewellery in mind, not only keeping the design pretty, while still delivery outstanding quality music, they are small enough to not press down on your ears if you are wearing earrings. They also come with this very handy case that makes them even easier to slip into your bag, and prevents the cables from tangling.


kitty and socks

This one is a little bit of fun, because he is really handsome and special. Here is Puss in Boots, entirely hand knitted by grandmother for me! If you, like me, think he’s handsome, let me know in the comments below and I’ll let my grandmother know!

New Look’s Floral SocksSince Spring has sprung, I’ve been slowly fading out all of the dark block colours, and bring in lighter colours and florals. These socks are a perfect in between because they can work at any time of year, but right now they’re perfect for wearing with heels or shoes with cut outs in them, so you can show off the daisies. And on top of all of that, they have an adorable frilled edge.


nivea and hairmask

Oz Botanic’s Major Moisture Deep ConditionerI mentioned this product in my Ombre Hair Care Routine, and it really is amazing. It has revived the ends of my hair, and leaves my hair soft, shiny and manageable! And as I’m sure I mentioned before, it smells good too, unlike most other deep conditioners that are more expensive, they do the trick but they don’t smell as lovely.

Nivea Creme | This moisturiser is such a staple for me, I always have it on me and it really is a miracle in a pot. There are no added colours or scents, so it’s amazing on sensitive skin, and it’s quite thick so it lasts you all day, and you don’t need to apply a lot; in this case, a little really goes a long way. They are also available in handy tiny pots that would fit right in your handbag or make-up bag, perfect for on the go.


Those are some of the things that I’ve been loving this month, let me know what you’ve been loving, whether it’s something you’ve always loved and used or if it’s something that you’ve newly discovered, I’d love to know!
