Well, I lasted 23 days until this Lush review which was exactly what Chelsey predicted. Good call! Last month, I found myself stranded in Reading due to flooding. What else could I do but pop into Lush?
Rose Jam Bubbleroon
Right, let's get this out of the way. The name really, really annoys me. It's supposed to look like a macaron, so it should be called a bubbleron. Not bubbleroon as in macaroon. Macaroons are not the pretty pastel confections! Ok, rant over. Also, I know exactly what you're all thinking. Yes, it looks horrifically yonic to me too! That aside, I love this bubble bar! I'm not usually a fan of rose scents but I figured I'd try something new and give it a go. It's lovely! You just twist it in half (it twists apart really easy) and pop half in. I found that it creates the perfect amount of bubbles, and it has a lovely sweet rose scent. It's not as floral as a true rose- It definitely has something a little sweeter in it, which may be the lemon. Although it claims that shea butter and coconut oil makes your skin soft and smooth, I didn't notice a huge difference in this area. It's worth it alone for the fragrance though!
Sunnyside Bubble Bar
Look how pretty! It's so gold and shiny- I love it! In the bath, it creates glittery swirls of gold and loads of citrus-scented bubbles. The fragrance isn't particularly strong but it's certainly still noticeable and has a lovely uplifting mood to it. Be careful though- it made my bath really slippery!
The Godmother Soap
Now this is what Lush was made for! It's ah-ma-zing! The Godmother has the same pear drop and candyfloss fragrance as Snow Fairy and, my goodness, it's incredible. I want to eat it all up (Yeah, I wouldn't actually recommend that!). The fragrance is really powerful. I have this soap sitting on the side of my bath and it fills the whole room. It lathers really well and lasts for ages too. This is what I'll be using to curb my Snow Fairy cravings until Christmas!
I love the novelty of this bath melt- It's in a little muslin pouch that you can keep afterwards to use as a washcloth. It also smells absolutely delicious- a warming, soothing scent that reminded me a little of chocolate orange. It has that sort of enveloping richness. Filled with oats, it releases oat milk and cocoa butter, but I didn't actually find this had any effect on the softness of my skin. It's a shame as it smells so lovely!
This bath ballistic sounds absolutely perfect for me- Tonka and vanilla. Mmm, vanilla and caramel! Unfortunately, it smells nothing like you'd expect. It's just a very subtle- almost negligible- scent and has no redeeming qualities: It's not moisturising, it doesn't create bubbles and it doesn't turn the bath water an incredible colour. I don't really understand the hype.
