Whenever I am feeling a little bit down in the dumps, a trip to Lush Newcastle or a browse on the Lush Kitchen always cheers me up. I thought I would pick up some of my classic faves and some new bits too.
Firstly, I picked up Five O’Clock Whistle for my dad’s birthday yesterday. It smells amazing and as far as I am aware it is a rather new product as I haven’t seen this before. It’s a shaving smoothie rather than a cream which I think my appeal more to my dad even though he does like the Dirty Shaving Cream. The main ingredients include Jojoba Oil and Lime Juice that leave your skin feeling soft and smooth. It also has Coffee and Lavender Infusion and Kaolin to cleanse the skin and Extra Virgin Olive Oil to condition the skin. I am so excited for him to try it and let me know his thoughts.
Before my Lush interview, I treated myself to Intergalactic (review here) which is one of my faves and Fizzbanger which is such a lovely summer scent. I love both of these bath bombs after I have been in the sun all day as they feel really cooling on the skin. The Key Lime Pie Lip Balm is the last thing I picked up whilst browsing the shelves of my local Lush. Since buying this, I haven’t used anything else on my lips because they make them feel super soft. It’s filled with citrus oils and butters that help repair cracked and dry lips. Although the green shade might look a little daunting in the tin, you don’t need to worry as it actually comes out clear on the lips. I like how they are the perfect travel companion and don’t take up much room in your bag compared to that a lipstick. Did I mention how good it smells too?!
Guardian Of The Forest
I’ve only had Guardian Of The Forest once before but I loved it so much that I needed to add it into my basket whilst picking up some of the Lush Kitchen Swag the other week. As far as I am aware it’s only available online or from Lush Oxford Street but I highly recommend trying it. The bath bomb has Cypress Oil and Oakmoss Absolute which helps to calm your mind and body whilst the Rosewood and Lime Oils uplift your mood. It leaves your skin feeling super soft as it has Cream of Tartar within the formula and an array of lustre.
The Lush Bomb is one that I’ve spotted on the Kitchen before but didn’t get a chance to pick it up. The other week I managed to grab one before they sold out and it may be my favourite one from the Kitchen so far. If you know me by now, I am a lover of all things citrus scented and that’s exactly what the Lush Bomb is. The Patchouli, Sweet Orange and Lemongrass oils release a lovely and rather uplifting scent into your bathroom as it fizzes away. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture the beautiful array of green and yellow shades because it was fizzing so fast however it left behind a lovely mermaid turquoise shade in the water to relax in before starting a busy day. You even get your very own Lush Kitchen ribbon to keep after the bomb as finished fizzing – a must for all Lush Kitchen fans!
Have you picked up any Lush bits recently? I would love to know whether you have tried any of these before.
