Lush Father's Day Range!*




Father's Day is nearly upon us, which means one thing; it's time to madly shop for presents before the actual day, Sunday September 4! Oh and also that we should show our appreciation for our Dads, and everything they do for us. I know I'd be lost without mine! I'm so lucky my Dad has a wonderful relationship with my son; they play soccer together, watch the Crows play football and play games on the iPad giving hubby and I lots of Date Night opportunities.

If your Dad or husband doesn't mind pampering himself now and then, you may want to check out the Lush Father's Day range*, now available in store and online! I was fortunate enough to be sent a generous press box, so let's have a look at this years Lush goodies, made especially for the men in our lives!




Thanks Dad Soap*

'If this soap was a Dad, it would probably say something embarrassing like "You might not want to be seen with me. I'm pretty square"'.

I feel like Lush have captured a tropical sunset in a bar of soap with this little beauty. Either an actual sunset or a Tropical Sunset Cocktail, so pretty, waiting for me to take a sip, Aaaaah, cocktails. And now back to the soap! Thanks Dad smells strongly of oranges, so if you love citrus aromas, this will be up your alley. The yellow half feels soft so I thought this block may be ultra-creamy and lather away quite quickly, but it doesn't. The square shape is a tad awkward to use and I'd prefer it as the conventional rectangle, however that would detract from the alphabet D - A  - D (like ABC) block design. The orange juice and Brazillian orange oil ingredients make for an uplifting and beautifully refreshing experience.




The Modfather Bubble Bar*

'This bubble bar is for the snappiest dressers and most discerning of bathers. Crumble under running water for luxuriously fragrant citrus bubbles.'

If gorgeous aqua-blue water and lots of white bubbles are your thing, you'll love The Modfather bubble bar. Again, this contains Brazillian orange oil and gives off a lovely, subtle citrus scent, which I adore. I had such a lovely relaxing bath with The Modfather, and I'm kind of glad that neither my husband nor my Dad take baths, because I got this bar of bubbles all to myself!




Super Dad Bath Bomb*

'Seek out those true heroes who have lifted you up and deserve a thank you. This super fizzing bomb is made for them.'

I haven't had the pleasure of trying this one yet, but I can tell you that Super Dad bath bomb contains sandalwood oil to soothe and uplift and olibanum oil tone the skin, relax the body and calm the spirits. This combination of ingredients, along with guaiac wood, Lush say create a sweet, woody, smoky scent, which sounds divine to me. Bring on the weekend so I can indulge in this bath!



Smuggler's Soul Multipurpose Cream*

'Go under cover of evocative, soothing sandalwood.'

I appreciate a versatile product, and this Multipurpose Cream can be used on the face, body, hands or hair, as a moisturiser, shaving cream or hair styling product. Which leads me to believe this would be the perfect product for travelling. It contains fresh cucumber to cool and argan oil to soften the skin. Lush source their sandalwood from ethical and sustainable sources, but call this product 'Smuggler's Soul' to shine a light on the murky sandalwood smuggling underworld, which I had no idea about.




Smuggler's Soul Facial Scrub*

'Sandalwood takes the senses a long way from home as you buff and brighten the skin.'

This is a bit weird, but I'm actually getting addicted to this scrub! The consistency is like a super-thick moisturiser, but with tiny abrasive particles. Using Smuggler's Soul Facial Scrub feels really good, and afterwards my skin felt so soft, smooth and polished. I really love the formula and for some reason it reminds me a bit of Lush Ultra Bland. The scrub emits a smoky sandalwood fragrance, as bamboo granules exfoliate and brighten and the skin is cooled thanks to the fresh cucumber infusion.



Smuggler's Soul Shampoo Bar*

'With restorative rosewood, refreshing cucumber and cleansing lemongrass. Create a lather in the hands first or glide straight over hair to clean.'

This predominantly blue hydrating shampoo bar contains lemongrass oil and chunks of Fair Trade organic cocoa butter. I love the sexy, earthy smell of this bar; the sandalwood adds a masculine, smoky fragrance. I haven't tried this one out yet, but historically (in my experience with other Lush shampoo bars) they last a fair time, so at $14.95 a pop, it's pretty good value for money.

The Lush Father's Day range is available in store and online now.

  15. I haven't really given much thought to a Father's day present. Certainly would not have considered Lush before this post. I really would love to find a soap on a rope.
