Dearest Reader, It’s Time To Have The Most Decadent Of Baths That You Will Ever Have! - Lush | Bridgerton Range

Hello dearest readers! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! The wonderful Community Team and Finley at Lush sent me some of the products from the regal brand new range at Lush that is Lush | Bridgerton. 

This range has been created in collaboration with Netflix and Shondaland to celebrate Part One of Season Three of Bridgerton. 

A photo of a light brown square box containing white popcorn pieces on the bottom with a bee engraved yellow oval shaped body balm, a purple and yellow macaron style bath bomb with b engraved on one side and lush engraved on the other, a silver glitter coated diamond shaped bath bomb with a crown engraved on top, a a small clinical plastic clear tub with a clear circular lid with creme anglaise body lotion written in white font on a black label with crowns and diamonds printed onto it with yellow thick body lotion contained in the tub and a tall cylindrical clear tub containing thick jam like red shower slime style body wash with a clear circular lid with a yellow label that has see and be seen in red font  with flowers printed on with lush Bridgerton in black font on top with a purple card behind them that says lush| Bridgerton in white font on a bright background


Colour, Clarity, Carat, Cut Bath Bomb 

Use this bath bomb and you will understand why its The Diamond of the bath bomb world! This bath bomb contains Bergamot Oil, Litsea Cubeba Oil and Benzoin Resinoid to create a truly uplifting citrus scent that screams sitting outside in a wonderful garden during the warm weather to me! Not only does this bath bomb smell gorgeous but it looks it too! This bath bomb has took inspiration from The Diamond reference that runs throughout Bridgerton to ensure that not only does it evoke opulence but that it becomes your favourite bath bomb via its scent, its shimmer and its bath art! Some of you may know the scent of this bath bomb as The Elephant in The Tea Room which was a bath bomb that was a part of Lush’s Mothers Day 2022 Range. I love the design and smell of this bath bomb as you can probably tell and honestly if you want to wow someone with a product from Lush right now I would definitely suggest Colour, Clarity, Carat, Cut! Priced at £7.

Two Families Bath Bomb

Two different scents come together to create one truly magnificent bathing experience! 

This bath bomb contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Fair Trade Shea Butter, Lavender Oil, Chamomile Oil, Lavender Absolute, Neroli Oil, Bergamot Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Tonic Absolute, Cocoa Absolute, Yuzu Powder and Lavender Powder, This bath bomb is a brand new design for Lush. If you are familiar with Lush’s Bubbleroons then imagine that but in a bath bomb format. For those that are unfamiliar with the concept then imagine a macaron that is traditionally two meringue cookies sandwiched with an uber rich buttercream or ganache but in beautiful bath bomb form so two bath bombs sandwiched together with skin softening butters. This bath bomb is sandwiched with Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter which are known for making the skin feel soft and supple. Each half of this bath bomb-roon contain a different scent. One half is scented with one of Lush’s retro scents Yuzu And Cocoa which has been described in the past as chocolate orange but I mainly get a mixture of citrus, coconut and cocoa which to me is a scent that reminds me of Summer! The other half is scented with Lush’s Deep Sleep scent that is available in many formats such as a. Epsom Salt rich Salt Cube Bath Bomb or Massage Bar! Deep Sleep contains Lavender and Chamomile to truly help you relax. To me, Deep Sleep reminds me of being in a field of Lavender and Chamomile on a breezy Spring morning! You can use this bath bomb as one truly regal bathing experience that is full of contrasting scents, colours and softening butters or you can separate the bath bomb to create two bathing experiences! The choice is entirely up to you, dear reader. I love the concept of this bath bomb/bath bomb-roon. I do hope that Lush bring more of these out in the future as I love anything that contains a skin softening butter as I know that my dry, dry skin will drink it up! Priced at £5.

Honestly I am very tempted to grab some macarons, use Two Families and bingewatch part one of the new season (now its available to watch) on Netflix! 

See and Be Seen Body Wash 

Is it better to be a wallflower or to see and be seen? Oh dearest reader who will ever the answer to this conundrum? 

This body wash contains Fresh Rose Petal Infusion, Fresh Strawberry Juice, Pakistani Rose Absolute, Rose Oil, Sicilian Lemon Oil and Geranium Oil which to me creates a truly decadent Turkish delight inspired scent. If you have been shopping at Lush for a while then you may know the scent of this Body Wash as Rose Jam which is a perfect representation of the scent itself if I do say so. I think that this body wash is inspired by Strawberry Jam and honestly I’m not mad about it but I do love jam so I am probably bias. When I say Jam, I am primarily discussing the texture of this Body Wash. If you are expecting this Body Wash to be a thick balm like texture like Posh Chocolate or Yummy Custard then you may be disappointed. The texture of this Body Wash reminds me more of a Shower Slime from Lush than say Posh Chocolate Body Wash. Even though the texture may seem a little less nourishing than Posh Chocolate, do not be alarmed dearest reader as this Body Wash really does nourish the skin! I have dry skin and used this the other day and I stepped out of the shower with soft and supple skin! If you want to feel like you’re washing in a beautiful English Rose Garden or love anything Rose then I would definitely give this Body Wash a go! Priced at £18 for a 240g tub of deliciousness.

Creme Anglaise Body Lotion 

Who doesnt want to cover themselves in decadence? 

This body lotion contains Meadowsweet Infusion, Glycerine, Organic Almond Oil, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Fresh Rose Petal Infusion, Organic Jojoba Oil, Tiger Lily Extract, Organic Avocado Oil, Sacha Inchi Oil, Organic Cold Pressed Evening Primrose Oil, Organic Orange Flower Honey, Brazilian Orange Oil, Myrrh Resinoid and Vanilla Absolute. The smell is an intriguing one. I associate Creme Anglaise as a scent from Lush with Hair Custard as I am sure they shared the same scent so when I smelt this and realised that it was not like Hair Custard I was a little bit perplexed. To me when I take an inhale I do get Vanilla which was the prominent scent note in Hair Custard but then when it settles down I get a mixture of scents. I get floral which will probably be coming from the addition of Tiger Lily and Meadowsweet but I also get a slightly smoky undertone mixed with a big burst of Almond. If you are a big fan of Lush then imagine a mixture of Snowcake, Turmeric Latte and Vanillary with a dash of Death and Decay thrown in for good measure. The texture of this body lotion reminds me slightly of thick yoghurt. I have dry skin so I take lotions, balms and massage bars from Lush seriously and this is quite moisturising. As a dry skin babe, this lotion absorbs into my skin quite beautifully and the scent lasted all day when I applied it first thing in the morning! Priced at £12.

Bee Body Balm 

Time to spread that social buzz about whilst you smell gorgeous! 

This Body Balm contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Illite Butter, Fair Trade Organic Mango Butter, Almond Oil, Organic Rose Hip Oil, Brazilian Orange Oil and Bergamot Oil. I know that this is a Bridgerton collaboration range but if the Lush Manchester stores don’t have this beautiful Bee out and proud on the shop floor then I will be very disappointed! This body balm smells of Honey I Washed The Kids which for those dearest readers that don’t know about the scent is a truly divine honey-toffee scent with a slight citrus undertone that just makes the fragrance sing. This body balm is thick but still manages to glide on the skin beautifully. If you haven’t tried a Body Balm from Lush then imagine a slightly richer and thicker version of their Massage Bars. I love anything moisturising, I love Honey I Washed The Kids and I love Bees so this product was definitely made for me! Priced at £10.

Lush | Bridgerton Perfume 

A perfume truly fit for a Lord or Lady! 

This perfume contains Ylang Ylang Oil,m Rose Oil, Rosemary Oil, Mint Absolute, Jasmine Absolute and Sage Oil. This perfume was created by Emma Vincent, one of Lush’s innovative perfumers, for her own wedding! When I heard about this, this made a lot of sense because to me, the perfume does give off English Garden Wedding vibes! When I sprayed this perfume, the first note that jumped off my skin was a very bright green scent. Grassy almost. If you have smelt Grass from Lush then imagine that but a little bit more delicate. Once this note had died down a bit the next note that I got was a big sort of breezy coconut scent. I know that may sound a bit bizarre to you, dearest readers but do trust me. If you have smelt Furze from Lush then imagine that with a but more of a fresh undertone. Once the breezy scent toned down a bit, the final note that I got was a very big herbal floral scent. Imagine picking a mixture of Jasmine and herbs from a garden. Mixed all together I did quite enjoy this on my skin and it did give off spring wedding vibes.  I can definitely gravitating to this fragrance when it is warm outside! I think that this may be a complex scent that either you will love or loathe. But then again dearest readers, that’s the fun part of smelling scents from Lush. Seeing if they work or don’t on your skin. Priced at £35.

It’s Time To Perform Magik To Your Mind, Body & Soul | Lush Magik CBD, Magnesium & Adaptogenic Ingredients Range.

Hey everyone!

 Welcome to a brand new blog post! I was recently kindly sent the Magik Range from Lush and I thought that today I would talk to you all about  it. 

At the time of writing this blog post, the Magik Range is only available online and on the Lush App and is only available in Europe. I do believe that this range will becoming to European stores/where CBD products are allowed to be sold very soon. 

The Magik Range contains a plethora of amazing goodies. This range contains a high percentage of CBD, Magnesium and adaptogenic ingredients such as Shiitake Mushroom, Panax Ginseng and Ashwagandha  to help to relax the mind, body and soul. 

A picture of an open light brown square box with a green rectangular card that says Jamie do you believe in magik? In green font with a selection of Lush products including glass rectangular perfume bottle containing clear liquid with a black lid with a rectangular green label that says 4:20 pm in light pink font next to a green spherical bath bomb with a lighter green half that has a yellow hue to it with 420 engraved into the top of it, next to a cylinder filled with that green shower gel with a black cylinder coloured the shower gel has a slight purple hue to it with a psychedelic light green triangular label that says Magik shower gel lush in green font on a brighten ground with a pastel green massage bar that says Magik engraved into it next to a black cyldirncual tube filled with waxy temple balm with a green label that says Magik temple balm in white font next to a cube shaped bath bomb that is two different shades of green with lush CBD engraved into it in a bright background


Magik Bath Bomb 

This bath bomb will perform magik and turn your day from being uber bad to super good! 

This bath bomb is one of Lush’s Salt Cubes that are designed to help the body due to the addition of Magnesium rich Epsom Salt. This bath bomb contains 64,000mg of Epsom salts to truly help the body feel amazing and soothed. Talking of feeling soothed, this bath bomb also contains 150mg of CBD. Furthermore, this beautiful bath bomb contains Chamomile Blue Oil, Jasmine Absolute Violet Leaf Absolute and Ylang Ylang Absolute to create a truly grounding scent. To me, the scent reminds me of a mixture of a lighter version of Daddy-O from Lush mixed with when you initially spray Kerbside Violet onto the skin, you know before it settles down into the truly iconic grassy violet scent that it is known for being mixed with a touch of the base notes from 4:20 from Lush. As someone who suffers from Anxiety, is forever constantly in pain a lot and has their fair share of rough days, I use CBD a fair amount to ground myself so a high percentage in a bath bomb is kind of my dream come true. I loved this bath bomb, the scent fills the room beautifully. I mean after I was done with my bath, I could smell it across the upstairs of my house for a couple of days after! When I used this bath bomb I did notice a sort of silky layer on top? I was a bit confused but after watching Victoria’s video on the bath bomb I realised that it was the CBD Oil. As someone with severely dry skin, I loved it as I found it super hydrating for me and I have had baths with bath melts that have produced a similar sort of layer but I can see some people being a little put off by this especially if you suffer from sensory issues. I used this after being out for the day which depending on the stress of public transport or spaces being noisy or people bumping into me (it happens more than you would realise especially when I am shopping in Leeds) I was slightly in pain and drained from being stressed out and having an anxiety attack so I decided to use this bomb and honestly I felt replenished. I don’t want to say reborn because that does sound a touch too pretentious but honestly I felt like the world had gone ‘sorry for today being terrible, here’s a little remedy!’ I also struggle with sleeping and after using this bath bomb I managed to actually sleep without waking up several times during the night! I definitely do recommend grabbing one of these bath bombs! Priced at £11.

Magik Shower Gel 

This gel is made for when life just isn’t going your way! 

This shower gel isnt only a godsend to the mind but is one to the nose too! This shower gel contains CBD, Glycerine,Fine Sea Salt, Chamomile Blue Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Violet Leaf Absolute and Ylang Ylang Absolute. To me, when I compare the scent of this gel against the rest of the Magik range, I notice a difference in the scent. Whereas in the rest of the range the scent has a grounding base followed by a mixture of light and strong Violet notes, this gel has a more punchy and upfront Violet scent. One that I think most people will be familiar with! This shower gel does also containing varying amounts of CBD depending on what size you purchase. If you pruchase a 120g bottle then this size will contain 50mg of CBD, a 280g bottle will contain 125mg and a 580g bottle will contain 250mg of CBD. I recently took this with me to Manchester whilst I went to go and spend a couple of days away seeing my partner and some of my friends and this was honestly a saviour for me. I used this before adventuring around the busy city centre and it stopped me from screaming due to the hustle and bustle of the centre and honestly never knowing if a tram was behind me. This gel truly grounded me and kept me from feeling like death by the end of the day. If you are unsure on the Magik range then maybe grab a 120g bottle off this gorgeous gel and give it a go! You never know when you’ll need it after a long hard day of adulting! Priced at £12 for a 120g bottle, £24 for a 280g bottle and £40 for a 580g bottle.

Magik Massage Bar 

Sometimes all we need is a rub down and a wind down. 

Who doesnt love a massage bar? They are multifunctional, easy to travel with and do amazing things for the skin! This massage bar contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Calamine Powder, Fair Trade Shea Butter, Moringa Oil, Ashwagandha Root and Siberian Ginseng Infusion, Organic Illite Butter, Magnesium Chloride, Shiitake Mushroom, Organic Jojoba Oil, CBD, Sacha Inchi Oil, Ginseng Root Powder, Chamomile Blue Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Violet Leaf Absolute, Ylang Ylang Absolute and Seabuckthorn Oil. I love this massage bar but then again I love massage bars in general! I have been using this Magik Massage Bar on a night to calm me down and it has helped me quite a lot. I use the raised point side for when I ache and the smooth side for when I just want a little bit of moisture. I do tend to use them more as a solid moisturiser rather than a sort of massage bar per se but that’s more because I use them a lot for my back and its a pain to try and self massage my own back really. The scent of this massage bar is more like the Magik Bath Bomb rather than the Shower Gel as I get a big smoky undertone when I smell this and then a hit of Violet rather than pure Violet like I do when I inhale the shower gel. As mentioned above, I love the raised design of this Massage Bar. I love the raised edges for when muscles ache, I love the smooth side for when you just want a quick glide of a massage bar for moisture and I love that it has Magik written on the front as it makes it easier when I am rushing and not realising which massage bar I am grabbing to use which has happened more than I would like to admit. When I have used this before bed, I have noticed that it has been easier for me to unwind. Comparing this to Joints Massage Bar, not only is the scent different for me but I do find it a bit easier to relax and unwind with this one but I think that when it comes to Autumn I may change back to Joints just because I think that ill prefer the earthy patchouli scent when its cold and dark especially as the scent of Magik is sort of light, floral and spring like. This massage bar contains 99mg of CBD and 1500mg of Magnesium Chloride. Priced at £14.

Magik Temple Balm 

Swipe, inhale, relax! 

This temple balm contains Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Candelilla Wax, Organic Castor Oil, CBD, Chamomile Blue Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Violet Leaf Absolute and Ylang Ylang Absolute. This temple balm contains 40mg of CBD to help you truly get out of that fight or flight feeling! I have been using this for a while whilst I am out and about and oh my god have I needed it. I am a forever anxious person as you’ve probably grasped by this part of the blog post but going out and about can be really stressful for me no matter what. I have been applying this whilst on the train, whilst out shopping, before meeting up with friends and it has stopped me from well feeling like a huge hot mess. I used this whilst I was out in Manchester this weekend and it calmed me down when I felt like I was on the verge of having an anxiety attack due to the city centre being absolutely packed. I suffer sometimes from sensory issues and this stopped me from honestly wanting to peel my own face off and scream. I know that sounds drastic but honestly sensory issues can be like that for me sometimes. I would definitely recommend everyone grabbing this and whacking it in your everyday bag. If I hadn’t I don’t know how Manchester would’ve gone for me. I also do want to state that even though it is small, I have also been using it slightly like a solid perfume and I have been able to smell the scent of this temple balm for hours after applying it! Priced at £12.

Will you be checking out the Magik Range? Have you tried any of the Magik products already? Let me know down below! 

Again, massive thanks to Lush and the Community Team for sending me the Magik Range! I have truly been loving using them and seeing how they work for my anxious neurodivergent non-binary self. The wonderful team did also send me a couple of the 4:20pm goodies so do let me know if you want me to do a separate post on them! 

Thsnks for reading!

Experiencing All Of The Eras In The Bathroom | Lush Products That Give Taylor Swift Eras Vibes

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! The new Taylor Swift Eras Tour (Taylor’s Version) will be available to watch on Friday so I thought that I would combine Lush and Taylor to give you some Lush suggestions in case you want to pair them together like I probably will be doing on Friday. 

All of the products suggested in the post will be available to purchase from Lush in store, online or via their App. 

A photo of a spherical green bath bomb slowly dissolving in a big tub of clear water on a bright background

To start off, if you wanted a scrub that just gives off Taylor vibes then I would definitely suggest Cup O’ Coffee. This scrub contains Coffee Infusion, Ground Coffee Beans, Roasted Cocoa Extract, Vetivert Oil, Coriander Seed Oil and Vanilla Absolute. This to me creates a deep earthy coffee and cocoa scented scrub that gives you the pick me top that you and your body need first thing in the morning. I mean everyone knows that Taylor loves a good coffee run and why wouldn’t you want to use Coffee to scrub away that dead skin before you’re glowing for the gods! 



The first one that I thought of when I thought Lush and Taylor Swift was well Dear John… Dear John contains Cedarwood, Coriander Seed, Vetivert and Clove Bud Oils to create a herbal fragrance that will make you sing Dear John all day long. I wish that Lush would bring back the Shower Gel that was available as part of the Fathers Day range in 2019.

A photo of a glass rectangular perfume bottle filled with clear liquid with a cylindrical black lid with a black rectangular label with Dear John perfume lush in white font on a bright background


Karma is a god and it is a must when it comes to Lush scents that would work perfectly for the Eras tour whether that is via digitally or in person. Karma contains Patchouli, Brazilian Orange, Lavandin, Pine, Elemi and Lemongrass Oils to create a rich and complex scent that evokes the vibe of being a free spirit. I love Karma personally so I would go out and use everything that you can grab from a Lush store that has Karma written on it. Shower Gel, Soap, Perfume, Body Lotion. Grab it all, use it all and sing your heart out to the song. (Don’t hate me but I’m not a fan of the Ice Spice version). 

If you’re looking for a bath bomb to use that screams Taylor then I would suggest either of the two that are at Lush. Lakes or Black Rose. If you’re more of a fan of ‘clean’ scents then maybe lean towards Lakes (this bomb contains Labdanum Resinoid, Osmanthus Absolute, Pine Oil and Myrrh Resinoid) and if you’re a fan of scents or bath bombs that exude revenge for tarnishing your reputation then go for Black Rose (this bath bomb contains Pakistani Rose Absolute, Rose Oil, Geranium Oil and Sicilian Lemon Oil).

A photo of a spherical green bath bomb slowly dissolving in a big tub of clear water on a bright background


 If you’re looking for a perfume that just makes you feel fearless to the world then I would definitely suggest Love. Love Perfume contains Lemongrass Oil, Bergamot Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Rose Absolute, Ylang Ylang Absolute and Ylang Ylang Oil. Those that use it include myself definitely could tell you multiple stories of adventures that have happened whilst wearing this perfume. 

A photo of a large clear glass bottle full of clear perfume with a black cylindrical lid with a black rectangular label with love perfume lush in white font on a bright background


If you’re looking for a body lotion from Lush that isn’t Karma based then I would definitely suggest Dream Cream. Dream Cream contains Oat Milk, Rose Water, Rose Absolute, Chamomile Blue Oil, Tea Tree Oil and Lavender Oil. Not only will this lotion make your skin uber soft but if you’re going to the tour in person then this lotion will help you to have the wildest dreams of your life the night before. Talking about sleep, you can always use the Sleepy range and have a self care night whilst Midnights plays in the background. Sleepy contains Lavender Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Tonka Absolute and Ylang Ylang Oil. This could include Sleepy Gel, Twilight Bath Bomb and Body Spray and Beauty Sleep Face & Body Mask. 

A photo of a circular splodge of white body lotion  on a bright background


If you’re looking for a Lovers vibe then I would definitely suggest Sex Bomb. Sex Bomb contains Jasmine Absolute, Clary Sage Oil and Ylang Ylang Oil. I mean is there another bomb that exudes Lover vibes? Following on from this, you could pair this with American Cream Shampoo and Perfume to really feel like the true Miss Americana of the world (American Cream contains Vanilla Absolute, Clary Sage Oil, Lavender Oil and Benzoin Resinoid) or if you’re looking for something a little bit different there is always Shade. Shade contains West Timor Sandalwood Oil, Olibanum Oil and Guaiacwood Oil.

If you’re wanting to show off your love for Reputation, you can use Black Rose that has been mentioned already but alongside this, you could use Dark Angels. Dark Angels contains Rhassoul Mud, Organic Avocado Oil, Powdered Charcoal, Black Sugar, Sandalwood Oil and Rosewood Oil. I mean, Taylor during the Rep Era was the ultimate Dark Angel let’s be real here. 

A photo of a large cylindrical black tub filled with dark black charcoal chunky cleanser pieces with a black circular lid with a black circular label that says dark angels face cleanser lush in white font on a bright background


If you’re looking for a perfume that screams Rep but still has notes of being delicate on some then Death And Decay may be for you. Death and Decay contains Ylang Ylang Oil, Tonka Absolute, Rose Oil and Jasmine Absolute. One spray of this and you will have people asking if the old version of yourself is dead! 

A photo of a big rectangular glass bottle of perfume filled with clear liquid with a black circular lid with a black rectangular label that says Death and Decay Perfume Lush in white font on a bright background


If Death & Decay isn’t your thing then New Romantics might be. New Romantics contains Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Davana Oil and Pimento Berry Oil Be quick though as this was released for Valentines Day but is still available to grab at the time of writing this blog post. If it isn’t and you’re looking for something different then maybe give Alina a sniff. Alina contains Bergamot Oil, Patchouli Oil, Clove Bud Oil, Olibanum Resinoid, Jasmine Absoliute, Pink Pepper Oil, Vetivert Oil, Orris Oil and Vanilla Absolute. It still gives off that delicate vibe butt the Pink Pepper in this perfume gives it a sort off warm spicy note compared to the dark floral scent that Death and Decay exudes.  

A photo of a tall rectangular glass bottle containing clear perfume with an orange tint with a black cylindrical lid with a black rectangular label  that says New Romantics Lush in white font on a bright background


If you’re looking for something to nourish the face then Gorgeous from Lush will definitely do that. Gorgeous contains Organic Orange Blossom Honey Water, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Cold Pressed Evening Primrose Oil, Organic Avocado Oil, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Fresh Pineapple Juice, Fresh Orange Juice, Orange Flower Absolute, Neroli Oil and Myrrh Resinoid. You could apply it whilst Gorgeous is playing in the background!

Being A Believer Of All Things Lush | Lush X Shrek First Impressions From The Press Release

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post. I don’t know if you have seen or not but Lush are releasing a Shrek collaboration and I thought that today I would talk to you all about it a little bit. I thought that in todays blog post I would give you all my first impressions on the range just based on the press release that Lush UK put out today and not seeing or smelling them in person. 

This post may be short due to going off the press release notes only. Do not worry though as a longer in-depth post will come when I can get my hands on the range. 

A wide angled photo of some black body spray bottles, green cylindrical tubs, clear shower gel bottles filled with green liquid with a green label that says Fiona shower gel in white font and some donkey and gingerbread men shaped bath and bubble bars on a background of a green lousy swamp on a bright background


Shrek Swamp Bath Bomb (£8)

Don’t be a Farquad! Users can unleash their very own swamp at bath time with this cheeky bath bomb.

Even if this bath bomb may turn your tub into a swamp, it contains a plethora of goodies includin Rhassoul Mud, Oakmoss and Japanese Seaweed which will leave skin feeling  softened and cared for. Furthermore, Shrek Swamp is scented with rich, deep chocolate mixed withrefreshing Peppermint, Pink Pepper and Vanilla to create a minty and spicy top note. I love all things swampy. I love all things Chocolate and I quite like spicy scents so I can see myself enjoying this scent profile and bath bomb quite a bit. I can see it being a bit similar but also quite different to say Guardians Of The Forest or Lord Of Misrule. Comparing it to LOM, they both contain a Pepper even if one contains Black Pepper and one contains Pink Pepper and they both contain Vanilla and I adore LOM so I will probably adore this bomb too.

Get Outta My Swamp Shower Slime (£9/£18)

Make like Shrek and harness the power of the swamp for a slimy body wash that will leave users feeling  soft and silky. This Shower Slime contains Wheatgrass which is known for being  packed with Vitamin A, E and C. Wheatgrass when in beauty products is known for ensuring that the skin is soothed. This shower slime also contains cornstarch which is used not only to create the texture of this sublime slime but also to ensure that skin is left feeling super soft after using this product. This shower slime also shares the same scent as the Shrek Swamp Bath Bomb so they could definitely be paired together to create a gift perfect for a Shrek film fanatic! Honestly I’m not sure if I’m a big fan of Shower Slimes. I just find them a bit of a pain to use so I only use them when I really want to. I do love the idea of them but as someone with not the best dexterity I do struggle using them from time to time. I am intrigued to see if this Shower Slime is thicker at all and if it is then I can see myself getting on with it a little bit more than say Sparkly Pumpkin Shower Slime especially as the scent profile of this slime sounds superb.

Fiona Shower Gel (£10/£20/£34)

Be ogre-joyed with this fairytale blend of fresh, fruity fragrance transformed into a beautifully cleansing shower gel. 

This gel contains Fresh Cucumber Juice which is known for its cooling and skin glowing properties. Fiona Shower Gel contains Lime, Pine, Buchu Oil and Mango Leaf Absolute.  I mean I love anything that contains Lime and Mango. I mean I can eat Lime Wedges whole without having any form of reaction so I am sure that I will enjoy the scent of this. I am a bit iffy with Pine sometimes so I do hope that Pine doesnt dominate the scent profile of this gel! I can see this being a great Shower Gel for Summer just going off the scent profile that Lush has provided.

Gingy Bubble Bar (£7.50)

Do you know the muffin man? Well, get acquainted with the scent of freshly baked goods in the form of everyone’s favourite gingerbread man! Crumble under running water to release sweetly scented bubbles and swish around for even more suds!

Will I crumble Gingy up whilst reciting the whole scene between them and Lord Farquad? Maybe… I think that I tried Carrot Cake Lip Scrub and I did enjoy it but scents and products have been out since so I honestly don’t remember the scent of Carrot Cake Lip Scrub (which this bubble bar shares the scent of) to say much about it so ill definitely have to give this another sniff if I can. I mean I love Carrot Cake so I can’t see myself not enjoying the scent and this bubble bar in general.

Donkey Bath Bomb (£6)

Where would a brave knight be without his noble steed? Have Donkey join the party with this sweet ballistic, scented with waffle-y notes of cosy spiced caramel. Drop Donkey into a nice hot bath to release swirls of colour and waffle-sweet fragrance.

This beautifully cute bath bomb is scented in Lush’s iconic Yog Nog scent. If you have been an avid reader of this blog for a while then you will know that I love the Yog Nog scent but I usually wear it in the colder months so I am a bit unsure on Yog Nog being brought out in a bath bomb format at the beginning of Spring. Saying that, I do have a stash of Yog Nog products that I should use so I know that this bomb will go beautifully alongside them.

By Night One Way, By Day Another Body Spray (£35) 

I have always loved this quote from Shrek so I love how they have turned the quote into a Body Spray. This Body Spray contains a blend of Lime. Mango Leaf Absolute, Melon and Green Apple, I love the sound of this fragrance and I am definitely intrigued to try it if I can. Lush also state that this Body Spray changes on the skin throughout the wear which I am even more intrigued by as maybe the Melon and Apple come out later on during the wear. I love anything Lime and Mango so I am sure that alongside the Fiona Gel that I will like it or at least like to try it.

Mask Of Magnaminty will also be getting a label makeover for this collaboration. For years, customers in Korea and around the world including myself have forever associated this mask with Shrek. In Korea they call the mask Shrek Pack due to the association so Lush have changed the name of MOM to reflect this.

This collaboration range will drop on the UK Lush App on Friday 22nd March 2024 and then online on Monday 25th March 2024. It will also be a few selected stores in the UK. These stores are Lush Liverpool Spa, Lush Edinburgh, Lush Glasgow City, Lush Beak Street which has been used as a pop up space for previous collaboration ranges such as Lush X Barbie and Lush Oxford Street. Do I wish that it was in more stores so that more people could get to sniff the range before buying it? I think so yes. I am a person who needs to know what something smells like before they buy it as I am severely, severely indecisive when it comes to purchasing well anything really.

Lush Easter 2024 Sneak Peek

 Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! The lovely Community Team at Lush sent me some of the Easter products before they drop in store this Thursday and I thought that I’d talk to you all about what I got sent.

Sticky Dates Sugar Scrub 

It’s time to scrub that sticky icky feeling off yourself! 

Okay so it’s no surprise that I love Sticky Dates. It’s an amazing scent that lasts forever on the skin and just oozes comfort. This superb scrub contains Caster Sugar and Golden Caster Sugar to really help buff dead skin away. This scrub also contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and Argan Oil to ensure that this scrub isn’t too stripping for the skin and to ensure that your skin can be as soft and supple as possible! Argan Oil is quite well known for its soothing and conditioning properties! This scrub also contains Date Syrup, Benzoin Resinoid, Sandalwood Oil & Carob Resinoid. To me, this scrub has a quite sweet scent and it is utterly divine! It reminds me of Sticky Toffee Pudding. The Golden Caster Sugar and Date Syrup do seem to intensify the scent a bit compared to the O.G Sticky Dates Shower Gel. The scrub itself is gorgeous. It’s gritty but not too gritty and a little is needed. I have quite dry skin so I do like to scrub often or have a deep scrub and this scrub worked wonders on my skin. If you’ve tried the Barbie Scrub or the Old Songs Are Waking scrub  and loved the texture then you will love this one as they share the same texture!! If you like sweet scents, sticky toffee or want something comforting and good enough to eat to scrub away dead skin with then I would definitely recommend giving this a go.  Priced at £10 for a 135g tub or £20 for a 290g tub.

Sticky Dates Body Lotion 

Well your skin needs to be nourished before that first date during the Easter holidays! 

Following on with the Sticky Dates love, for their Easter 2024 range, Lush have released a Sticky Dates Lotion and oh my it is fabulous! I am so happy to be adding this to my Sticky Dates shrine. Yes you heard right, shrine. Don’t judge me! This lotion contains Organic Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Oil which is rich in Vitamin E, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter and Organic Illipe Butter to ensure that the skin is truly moisturised. The lotion contains Vanilla Pod Decoction (fun fact, this is actually made in house at Lush), Carob Resinoid, Sandalwood Oil and Benzoin Resinoid. This blend of oils creates a gorgeous dessert scent that reminds me personally of when you walk into a house and you can tell someone has been baking. I love this lotion, it’s light but severely moisturising which is quite hard to achieve! When I’ve used it, I’ve noticed that it sinks into the skin quite easily which is great because I hate it when you have to stand and wait after applying body products to ensure that you’re not left with a greasy feeling on the skin. As mentioned, I adore Sticky Dates so I’ll definitely be layering this with the Body Spray when I go out to make sure everyone wonders what is that gorgeous scent that I am wearing. If you’ve been wanting something that deeply nourishes the skin or want a gorgeous new body product to use when you’re going out out in 2024 then I would definitely recommend picking a bottle up! Priced at £10 for a 100g bottle and £20 for a 250g bottle.

Easter Turtle Shower Jelly 

It’s time for this turtle to move from Easter Island to the bathroom! 

This shower jelly contains Bladderwhack Seaweed Infusion, Sugar Kelp Infusion, Carrageenan Extract, Myrrh Resinoid, Orange Flower Absolute and Cinnamon Leaf Oil: This blend of ingredients creates a deep Spiced Apple scent to me. The infusions bring a sort of fresh undertone to the scent which pushes the Apple a little bit more the forefront compared to the spiced scent which comes from mainly the Cinnamon that is in this jelly. Bladderwhack and Sugar Kelp are both known for their moisturising properties and they definitely do help to nourish the body when you use this wonderful turtle.  This terrific turtle is massive and a little will go a long way. I use it via just swiping Easter Turtle over my body but if you’re feeling sadistic you can always chop them up into smaller bits. I love the scent of this Turtle but I love anything spicy. Anyone that knows me knows that I’m a fiend for anything flavoured or scented with spices such as Cinnamon. I definitely need to name my Easter Turtle! Leave your suggestions down below! This Shower Jelly shares the same scent as Temptation Shower Gel and Apple Crumble Bubble Bar from Lush and I know a fair few of you miss the Gel so this would be a great replacement if you are missing it! If you’re looking for a cute new shower product or for something that will stimulate and nourish the skin whilst the weather is slowly getting a little bit better or for a product to help the kids wash then I would definitely recommend Easter Turtle! Priced at £14 for a 220g Turtle.

Hot Cross  Bunny Bubble Bar 

To paraphrase Bridget Jones, this bubble bar is for when you need to go home and de-bunny! 

This bubble bar contains Sicilian Lemon OIl, Ginger Oil, Ginger Powder & Buchu Oil. To me, this amalgamation  of ingredients creates a very spicy scent with a  blast of Lemon and a slight citrusy blackcurrant undertone from the Buchu. I love anything Ginger and Lemon so when I smelt this I was in heaven! I also use Ginger in my baths quite often due to forever being in pain or when I accidentally whack my body when I’m rushing to get out or on a train (this happened last week) as it not only helps to soothe aching muscles but also aids circulation which is great for this time of year! If you’re a Lushie who remembers some of the retro products then you may know the scent of this bubble bar via Gingerbread House or Mercury Retrograde!. Lush decided to use this scent due to a suggestion by xpeachx on Discord so here’s my suggestion, Lush put this scent into a Shower Gel or Body Spray please! If you’re looking for something warming and to help you destress during the Easter time then I do really recommend this Bubble Bar. I’d also recommend screaming into the tub whilst you crumble it if you need to! Priced at £5.

Thank you so much to the wonderful Community Team and Finley for sending me these amazing goodies before they drop in store! You can already order them via the Lush App but if you prefer to go in store then the Easter range which includes the above products will be available in store and on the Lush website from tomorrow (Thursday 15th February 2024). 

Will you be checking out the Easter range? Do you like the sound of any of the products mentioned? Do you like the Lush Sticky Dates scent? Let me know down below!

It’s Time To Get Hot & Passionate In The Shower | Lush Valentines Day 2024

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that today I would talk to you all about the Valentines Day 2024 Range from Lush. 

PSA: If a product has been out before and I have talked about it then I will link the post where I’ve talked about it before. For example, Love Bug has been out before so I will link a previous Lush Valentine’s Day post where I’ve talked about Love Bug before.

Bath Bombs 

Love Potion 

Time to drop this potion into the bath before midnight or you’ll never find your happily ever after. This bath bomb is fit for anyone who’s feeling a little bit lustful. This bomb contains Popping Candy, Sicilian Red Mandarin and Almond Essential Oils alongside Orris Root Powder. This bomb reminds me of Love Hearts sweets. These sweets are the epitome of Valentines Day to me so to have a bath bomb that smells exactly like it is amazing for me. In the bath, the popping candy comes alive and the scent is powerful.If you’re looking for a little treat for yourself or for someone who loves sort of fruity sweet scents then I would recommend this one. Priced at £3.50.

Whispering Heart 

It’s time to whisper sweet nothings. This bath bomb contains Bergamot and Brazilian Orange Oils to create a sweet fruity scent. This bomb shares the same scent as the Rhubarb & Custard Soap from Lush so if you like the soap then I am sure that you will adore this bath bomb. To me, I am not the biggest fan of the soap but I love it in the bomb. Weird, I know. To me, it reminds me of old school sweet shops and honestly the great days of my uputh when I didn’t have a care int he world or crippling mental health problems… The design of the bath bomb may look odd to some. If you are wondering what the heart cut out at the top of the bath bomb is all about then its to not only remind you that love is all around but it is for you to whisper your hearts desire into. This is definitely a bomb that will make you feel sweet all over. It is also giving Spring and I am definitely here for that. I would recommend this bomb to anyone who loves those old fashioned sweets or wants a bomb that will give them a spring in their step. If you are giving this to a loved one or even yourself then I would also recommend writing something sweet on a strip of paper and putting it into the heart shaped hole for a little surprise when it comes to enjoying the bath bomb in the tub. Priced ai £6.

Flower Bombshell 

This is the perfect bomb to get to your favourite bombshell!

This bath bomb was out last year under the name of Valentines Bombshell. Read last years Lush Valentines Day post here to read all about the bomb. Priced at £14.

Big Squeeze 

We all need a big squeeze now and again. 

This bath bomb contains Juniperberry and Sweet Wild Orange Oils to create a lovely light grape scent. This bath bomb is big enough for a two person bath. To me, when I first sniffed this bomb in store I didn’t get grape… I got the scent of PVA Glue. I did sniff it a week later at a different store and I did get grape from it. Priced at £5.50.

Love Letter 

This bath bomb is a brand new one for 2024!

This bath bomb contains Coconut Milk Powder, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Bergamot, Geranium and Olibanum Oils. This bomb not only creates a wonderful nourishing bath for the skin due to the Cocoa Butter and Coconut Milk Powder but creates a wonderful bath via the scent. The oils in this bomb merge together to create a very rich Strawberry scent. If you have tried anything from Lush that is under the name of D’Fluff or Yummy, Yummy, Yummy then you will love this cute bath bomb as they all share the same scent. I’d recommend this to anyone who likes to just lock the bathroom door and relax in the bath or for anyone who loves rich fruity scents or honestly for anyone who loves Strawberry Milkshakes as I think that you may like the scent of this bath bomb. Priced at £4.

Love Bug 

Who doesn’t catch the love bug at Valentines Day? 

I have talked about this priduct before, click here to read all about it. Priced at £6.

Bubble Bars 

BFF 

It’s time to give your BBF some love! 

This brand new bubble bar is perfect to share with your partner, best friend or just anyone who you want to give some love to. This bubbles bar contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Ylang Ylang Oil and Synthetic Musk. This bubble bar shares the same scent as the Butterball Bath Bomb from Lush and is perfect for those who like a clean sort of scent. To me, the scent gives off notes of cocoa and vanilla and I mean who doesn’t like cocoa and vanilla? Not only does this bubble bar smell gorgeous but its also great for the body due to the shredded Cocoa Butter that is in the bar. What are you waiting for? Grab one and split with someone to show how much you love them! Priced at £7.

Strawberry Crumble 

This bubble bar has been mentioned in a previous post, click here to read all about Strawberry Crumble! Priced at £8.

Shower Gel 

Passion Shower Gel 

It’s time to grab someone into the shower and get passionate. 

This shower gel is a brand new product for 2024 and is definitely one to grab whilst you can. This gel contains Red Rose Petal Infusion, Fine Sea Salt, Fresh Passion Fruit Juice Buchu, Litsea Cubeba and Sweet Wild Orange Oils. This mixture of oils creates a wonderful zesty Passion Fruit scent that will perk anyone up on the darkest of days. This gel also contains Lush’s new glycerine suspended glitter formula to ensure that glitter doesn’t just sink to the bottom of the bottle. If you’re more of a shower than a bath fan then I definitely urge you to pick this up. Even if you’re not the biggest of Valentine’s fans then you can always just use this in the morning to give you a spring in your step. I absolutely adore it and do wish that it comes back out in the future after Valentines Day or even back out as a Body Spray… prices start at £8 for a 100g bottle.

Passion Fruit Delight Body Wash

This body wash is definitely one to try. I have already talked about this delightful body wash, please click here to read it. Priced at £3.60 online but due to sizing it may be different sizes that are cut in store.

Kiss Me Quick Shower Jelly 

You better kiss them quick before that shower gets too hot and steamy!

This shower jelly is brand new for 2024 but you may know the name from somewhere. This shower jelly contains Fresh Strawberry Juice, Clove Bud Oil and Mimosa and Tonka Absolutes. If you have shopped at Lush for a long while then you may recognise the name under the old Kiss Me Quick Washcard that was out a fair few years ago. To me, this jelly smells like a sort of sexy  yet spicy fragrance that has a Strawberry undertone to it that would be perfect to wear on a cold winters day or on date night. I love the shape of this Shower Jelly too as it reminds me of those big cherry lip sweets. Definitely one to whiff in store if you get the chance to. Priced at £7.

Posh White Chocolate & Rose Body Wash 

To paraphrase Posh, if you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my need to buy all of the Lush products especially the limited edition ones. 

This body wash contains Coconut Milk Powder, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Australian Sandalwood Oil, Rose and Vanilla Absolute. To me, the amalgamation of these oils and absolutes creates a wonderfully rich floral yet creamy scent that is the epitome of well white chocolate and rose with a sort of almond base to it. I also have quite dry skin and this body wash nourished my skin beautifully.  I would definitely pair this with Posh Chocolate and nice as a gift! Prices start at £10 for a 100g tub.

Rose Argan Massage Bar

Who doesn’t love a rose on Valentine’s Day? 

This massage bar contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Fair Trade She’s Butter, Ruby Cocoa Liquor, argan Oil, Pakistani Rose Absolute, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Getanium Oil and Rose Oil. Thie almagamation of oils and absolutes creates a deep yet sweet Rose scent that can be smelt for miles. If you’re a fan of Rose Jam then you’ll love this as they share the same scent! I love massage bars even they take forever to use up. I have dry skin so I forever love using these for when my skin isn’t being great. You can use them on yourself like I do or on a partner to create some love in the air! This particular massage bar does contain glitter which I adore but some may not so do keep that in mind. Priced at £10.

Lush Melts 

Queen Of Hearts Lush Melt 

For when the argument has riled up on Valentines Day, break some of this wax melt off and scream off with your head! 

This lush melt contains Almond, Geranium and Organic Rose Hip soups and Violet Leaf and Absolute. To me this creates a quite sweet scent with a hint of floral with a big base note of Strawberry. I do love these. With the Lush melts you can use these in the bathroom or in the wax burner. Honestly I’ve only tried them in the burner so I do think that I need to try them in the bath maybe… Priced at £7..

Jasmine Cream Lush Melt 

This Lush Melt contains Cold Press Strawberry Seed Oil, Bergamot Oil, Benzoin Resinoid and Ylang Ylang Oil. To me, this creates a very light but very creamy floral scent that just evokes the beginning of Spring to me. Again, I haven’t used this in the bath yet but when I do I can imagine using it first thing in the morning to help me get in the mood for going outside and cracking on with the day.  Priced at £7.

Soap 

Strawberry Heart Soap 

Take a little piece of my heart. 

This soap contains Fresh Aloe Vera Gel, Fresh Strawberry Juice, Bergamot, Olibanum and Geranium Oils. This also shares the same scent as Love Letters so they would go great together. I adore this Soap. Not only does it leave your hands utterly soft and nourished due to the Aloe Vera Gel and other great butters and oils such as Coconut and Rapeseed Oils that make up the base but also contains a scent that’s nearly good enough to eat. I have also used this in the bath alongside Love Letters on the skin and it has left my skin beautifully soft and scented for the day ahead. Priced at  £5.

My Lil Cute Chia Piglet Soap 

C’mon piglet, its time to move from the woods to the bathroom! 

This soap contains Soya Milk, Chia Seeds, Tonka and Vanilla Absolutes and Litsea Cubeba Oil. I know that it’s not Piglets fault but I really didn’t like this utterly cute soap. The texture was beautiful as the Soya Milk and Chia Seeds left my hands feeling soft and supple. The scent on the other hand was a bit questionable sadly. Lush describe this scent as being a mix of Milky Bath and Super Milk. I have used and loved both scent but together honestly it just smelt a bit like faint citrus mixed with Plastic. I’d definitely give this one a sniff before they go but it just wasn’t for me. Priced at £6.

Lips  

Sweet Talk Lip Scrub 

Now all that sweet talking is done, you better scrub your lips! 

This scrub contains Caster Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil, Rose Oil, Sweet Wild Orange Oil and Vanilla Absolute. To me, this scrub smelt like an Orange Dreamsicle sort of vibe. The rose to me is very much in the background when it comes to Sweet Talk. I did quite like this one but I honestly have a massive hoard of lip scrubs that I never get through. If you love citrus then you will love Sweet Talk! Priced at £7.

Crush Lip Butter

Time to make your lips kissable for your perfect crush! 

This lip butter contains Organic Castor Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Brazilian Orange Oil, Orange Flower Absolute and Grapefruit Oil. This to me creates a deep but strong citrus scent. To me, the two citrus oils are front and centre whilst the Orange Flower Absolute just creates a wonderfully citrus yet slightly floral base for the two oils to sing. I have quite dry lips and I have to be careful what I use due to my lip piercing and having temperamental skin but I love this. It’s thick and nourishing and has such a beautiful scent/taste that has perked my day up. I would definitely recommend grabbing one before they go! Priced at £6.

Face

Prince Charming Sheet Mask 

Wear this to allure your own Prince Charming or even gift to that Prince Charming who forgets to look after their skin! 

This sheet mask contains Marshmallow Root and Vanilla Pod Infusion, Kaolin, Carageenan Powder, Grapefruit, Sandalwood and Geranium Oils and Pomegranate Juice. I’m sorry but I don’t think this is my Prince Charming. I love the idea but for some reason this is just beyond creepy for me. The scent is beautiful and the mask did leave my face feeling pampered but the design is just a lot for me…  Priced at £8.

Fragrance 

New Romantics 

The urge for me to not sing New Romantics by Taylor Swift (Taylors Version of course) or to put on music that was at the peak of culture during the New Romantics era whilst I type this is dire. 

This perfume was inspired by the New Romantics Era and has been designed to not only suit everyone no matter what gender you identify as but also changes on everyones skin due to the PH level that you have. 

This perfume contains Sweet Wild Orange, Davana and Pimentoberry Oils. When I spray this perfume, the initial scent (I guess top note) is freshly squeezed Orange Juice, when this settles, I then got a blast of spice to the face. I then noticed that after a long while, the perfume left my skin smelling strongly or a fruity sort of creamy Peach (similar to Peachy from Lush) scent. I do like this but I have to be in a particular mood and the weather has to be at least bright or breezy for me to enjoy it. It is very much a love or loathe scents and is definitely worth a smell and spritz if you can! Priced at £30.

Thanks to the staff at Lush White Rose for helping myself and Luke around the store and explaining the premise behind the products within this range.
