Haul | Lush Valentines Collection


As we are nearing closer to Valentines Day I thought I would do a quick haul where I give you a run down of Lush's Valentines collection! I wanted to get this post published as quickly as possible while all the products are still in stock as they are limited edition and selling fast! The second they brought the new collection into my local store I ran to town and grabbed as much as I could.. you all know how much I love Lush! I fell in love with their Christmas collection and I had so many favourites during Christmastime and Halloween so I had high hopes for all of their new products!
(**The reviews for each product ended up being super long, so I'd grab a tea or coffee before reading this one!!)


Oh! Just wanted to say! Thanks so much for helping me get to 1000 followers on Twitter. I literally can't believe it at all! I love every one of my lovely blogging friends who I've met through Twitter and I wouldn't have it any other way! If you aren't following me on Twitter yet please do! So you can keep up to date with what's going on and we can have a little chat.. haha!

THE KISS | LIP SCRUB



Lip scrubs are something that I need to invest in more.. they are so underrated honestly! I've used Lush's lip scrubs in the past and fallen in love with them, they taste and smell amazing and do wonders for your lips, you can actually tell a huge difference after using them. This lip scrub lives up to all of these expectations. The scrub looks so delicious, its bright pink with edible red hearts, candy sprinkles and sugar and salt crystals throughout! The smell is also perfect, with scents of marshmallow and sweets, its definitely one for a sweet tooth! The only downside for me is that the product tastes quite salty, I feel like there are so many salt crystals in the product which makes it taste way too salty for my liking, so if you're a big fan of salty foods, this is one for you! However, if you prefer sweet tastes like me I highly recommend their Bubblegum lip scrub, which tastes and smells AMAZING! The salty taste isn't a big deal for me though and I will still keep using it, mainly because it makes my lips feel really healthy and soft after using it! 

UNICORN HORN | BUBBLE BAR


This has got to be by far the cutest looking bubble bar that Lush has every made! Everything about this is perfect and I didn't hesitate to grab this the second I saw it! The Unicorn Horn features pastel rainbow colours and is dotted with candy stars.. what's not to love?! The scent is mainly lavender for me, which I am not a huge fan of (I used to have a lavender scented spray that was supposed to help me sleep.. so it reminds me of not being able to sleep.. haha!) but the scent isn't too overpowering and it looks amazing so I was willing to overlook that! If you're not a huge lavender fan I still recommend it because with the mix of all the other fragrances the scent is actually really nice!  I have yet to try this one in the bath, but from what I've seen in reviews I am so excited to try it and because its quite a large bubble bar I'd say you'd get around 3 uses with this one! I've read a few reviews and this bubble bar seems to turn your bath water pink, which was what I loved about their other bar Candy Mountain, so I know I'm going to love this one! The stars also don't seem to dissolve and so just float around the bath giving you a magical experience (..haha!)

PRINCE CHARMING | SHOWER GEL


Lush shower gels are one product that Lush do that I really love, but I always forget to buy! I fell in love with snow fairy after trying it out this Christmas, and Prince Charming really lives up to the Lush shower gel expectations! Prince Charming smells like marshmallow and pomegranate apparently, and I'm not complaining, mixed together this smells delicious! I have yet to try it but I can imagine the scent will linger on your skin for a while after your shower and I can't wait for that. UPDATE: So, I've just put this to the test! It smells even better in the shower than it does in the bottle (if that is even possible?!) it has quite a zingy, strong smell and I really really love it! (It's been around 30 minutes after and I am still sniffing my arm.. haha!) Also, as with all the Lush shower gels this leaves your skin feeling soft and fresh and doesn't dry out your skin.

LOVER LAMP | BATH BOMB


So, you know I'm not the hugest fan of bath bombs, but from reading reviews I really can't wait to try this one! It's not the most colourful bath bomb, but it really makes up for itself with it's delicious smell - the notes are vanilla, cocoa butter and orange which mixed together gives quite a creamy/powdery smell, and a fragrance you can't really put your finger on (...but all in all is rather gorgeous!)  When you pop this little cutie in the bath it turns your bath water a white-ish colour and the red hearts float (filled with cocoa butter!) around dissolving VERY slowly, much like bath melts.. creating a rather romantic bath!

I hope you enjoyed this haul! Let me know if you have bought anything from this collection as I would love to know what you think!

  8. Great haul! I've picked up The Kiss lip scrub and The Kiss lip gloss. I've not used the lip scrub yet but would recommend the lip gloss! I'm excited to try the scrub after this post though. Haha. I've also picked up Prince Charming shower gel because I couldn't stop sniffing it in the store, and Lovers Lamp bath bomb because the hearts are so cute! And I love cocoa butter! Not used those two either yet. Finishing up Snow Fairy, and saving Lovers Lamp till Valentine's Day weekend! I might have to pick up the Unicorn Horn bubble bar though. It sounds divine! :O x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x
