LUSH 2018 Valentine's Day Range*




Hi guys! I can't believe it's February already, where is this year going?! You may be shocked to learn that Valentine's Day (14th February) is creeping up, so it's time to start looking for gifts for your significant other. If your partner is a Lush fan or loves a bit of a pamper in the bathroom, keep reading, because the Limited Edition LUSH 2018 Valentine's Day range* is now available in-store and online. Hurry though, because these goodies are only selling until the 14th! I was kindly gifted a box containing some of this years collection, so let's take a look!




Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb
This gorgeous heart-shaped bath bomb in the prettiest of pinks contains seven rosebuds that burst forth as the rosy goodness fills the bathtub. The heart is finished with a thin white layer across the bottom. I read some reviews saying it left the water colourless, but this bomb has now been reformulated and it does turn the water pink. (In the below photo, I've used just a corner of the heart and the water is a lovely light pink hue - I haven't saturated the colour). This bomb contains woody orris root powder, rose absolute, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Geranium and sexy Jasmine for a mystical, floral, sensual fragrance. Perfect to use before a romantic date!





Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar
I've been a lover of Unicorns for years now (you've seen the name of my blog, right?), so I was super excited to receive a Unicorn Horn bubble bar in my box! This cone-shaped delight is every bit as colourful and sparkly as you'd imagine the mythical creatures horn to be. Mine is pink, yellow and purple and covered in a shimmery silver sheen. Magical! Lavender Oil gives a balancing and calming effect, Neroli Oil is included for its toning and uplifting properties and Ylang Ylang Oil gives off a sweet, heady fragrance. Neroli is also known to increase serotonin in the brain which makes us feel content, relaxed and happy. It's a win win!



Melt My Heart Massage Bar
I'm not the biggest fan of massage bars (maybe because it's usually me who's doing the massaging!) but I like the look of the Melt My Heart bar. It's a generous size and the 'Love' embossed across the top is cute, if a little hard to make out. I also like the soft, melty formula and the fact that when you pick this up it immediately warms in your hands and softens, leaving your skin moisturised and soft when you glide it over. However it also leaves little black bits behind on the skin, and I'm not really digging the fragrance, which is very earthy and almost masculine. This new product contains cypress oil, orange flower absolute, Fair Trade organic cocoa butter, dried roses petals and violet leaf absolute.



Heart of Enlightened Expectation Bubble Bar Melt
This pretty orange heart shaped beauty is covered with a melty white topping that reminds me of whipped cream and has sprinklings of gold glitter for an additional sparkle! I cannot wait to use this one, as I love that it combines a bubble bar with a melt. I love bubble baths and one that also softens my skin sounds brilliant to me! This one smells quite strong, with mood-lifter bergamot oil, skin-softening organic Cocoa Butter, ylang ylang,  geranium, jasmine and rose included to create a fun, floral experience.



Tender Is The Night Naked Shower Cream
This is my first foray into 'naked' Lush products, and what better time to do it than for Valentine's Day! This is a new product, and the idea is that it's like their other shower creams, but without the plastic bottle, hence the term 'naked'. This lathers up nicely giving a lovely pink creamy soapy consistency which I actually prefer to the bottled creams, but just using it a few times I did use up a bit of product. I have stored mine in a sealed Glad bag so that it doesn't break down in the bathroom when not in use from the water or steam. The fragrance is sexy and floral, with a jasmine flower infusion, ylang ylang, vanilla absolute, murumuru and Fair Trade shea butters.



Tunnel of Love Soap
My fave ever Lush products come from the soap and shower gel categories, so I was thrilled to see a brand new product, Tunnel of Love Soap in my package! This is a pink wedge of soap in the shape of a bricked tunnel, with the white interior representing a heart. I really enjoy the soft, creamy Lush soaps, but the drawback is that they don't last very long. With Tunnel of Love, the white part is soft and creamy, whilst the pink majority is harder, so you're getting the best of both worlds. The citrus aromas from zesty lime and sweet wild orange oils make this an instant winner for me, with soothing rose water and softening olibanum leaves just added bonuses.



The Kiss Lip Scrub
I love Lush lip scrubs, so I was keen to try The Kiss! When you remove the lid, you're met with the cutest little pot of joy! The baby pink coloured sugary scrub is covered in tiny edible red hearts, and honestly, it just melts my heart! The cuteness! This works like all Lush lip scrubs; you pick up a little product and rub it over damp lips to slough off dead skin and give yourself a smooth, refreshed pucker, ready for Valentine's Day smooches. The Kiss tastes sweet, salty and delicious, and contains caster sugar,  fine sea salt, Fair Trade Cocoa Butter, almond and mandarin oils. I love this scrub!

The LUSH Valentine's Day collection is in-store and online now until February 14.

  7. I'm not sure how I feel about the naked range - it seems a tad fiddly. As for the bath bombs though, I do like me a nice bath bomb. #TeamLovinLife

  11. We don't have a bath in our new home, so I'm missing the bath bombs and relaxing in the tub. Hoping my apartment on the gold coast comes with a bathtub and there's a lush store nearby.

  13. OOh, that unicorn one sounds amazing! xo

  14. I must admit I'm intrigued by the massage bar. I've never heard of one before?

    I love any bath products but do try to use stuff without too much oil which leaves a mark around my bathtub. Of course if I'm ever away or in a hotel or something (and someone else is responsible for keeping the bathtub from getting grimey) then I don't worry. Most bath bombs etc are great cos they're not oily! #teamlovinlife

    1. Haha, yes hotel bathtubs are the best because the clean up is somebody else's problem!
