Hoppity Hoppity Hop | Lush Easter Range 2017


Welcome to another blog post! Today I am talking about Lush's new Easter range that came out last week. This is more of a first impressions than anything else as I went into the store to smell and demo everything out so I could get this up as soon as possible as I believe that having someone else's opinion on a full range may educate you and might help you when it comes to choosing products from Lush and if you're still stuck when you're iu a Lush store then you can always ask a staff member.

Bunch Of Carrots

I am starting off with the products that have came back from last year. Bunch Of Carrots is a reusable bubble bar that comes around every year to mark the beginning of the Easter season. You get three carrots in each bubble bar which means that you can get a good 4-5 baths out of each carrot. The price is £6.50 but you do get three carrots for that price. This product contains Buchu, Sicilian Lemon and Bergamot Oils which creates a deep zesty scent that runs throughout the whole of the Carrot/Snowman family so if you love any of the Snowman products that Lush have had out or love anything zesty and bright then I would definitely make sure that you try these out. The bubbles that this bar makes are so fluffy and light it makes you feel like you're an actual bunny living the high life! If you also love Alice In Wonderland then try these out as the colours and the bunch of carrots pays homage to Alice In Wonderland.

Golden Egg

I can not vouch enough for this product but I would warn that Golden Egg isn't for those who aren't the biggest fans of lustre. I love this bath product for many reasons from the scent to the fact that it is a bath bomb and melt in one./ As I mentioned, the scent is to die for as it is Bergamot and Brazilian Orange Oils which means that this is within the Scrubee/Honey I Washed The Kids/It's Raining Men family. This product also contains a lot of nourishing things such as Fairtrade Colombian Cocoa Butter, Almond Oil, and Fairtrade Olive Oil so if you have dry skin or need some moisture then you will love Golden Egg. I also think that its a great thing to use in case you're not keen on chocolate but you still want an egg shaped treat!

Which Came First?

Lush have finally decided to answer the infamous question and if you want to find the answer out then you better get one of these bath bombs. This bath bomb contains Grapefruit and Sicilian Lemon Oils and Vanilla Absolute. Personally, I think that the Vanilla is the main scent in this bomb but this is the beauty of having a nose things will smell different when it comes to individual people sniffing the product. It is a pricey bath bomb but you get three via cracking the egg open (which is 2/3) then theres a little bath bomb hiding inside the egg. It comes in two different colours. Priced at £6.95.

Chocolate Lip Scrub 

I love a good new lip scrub so when I heard that Lush were releasing a Chocolate Lip Scrub I knew that I had to try it. This lip scrub contains Dark Chocolate, Cocoa Absolute and Cocoa Powder which makes up the Chocolate in this product. The scrub also contains Sweet Orange and Tangerine Oils and Vanilla Absolute which when mixed with the triple chocolate mix creates a sweet Chocolate Orange flavour. The lip scrub base is Caster Sugar and Organic Jojoba Oil which give the lips a good exfoliation with a bit of moisture. I'd definitely try it out when you're next in a Lush store. Priced at £5.75.

Chick 'N' Mix

Chick N Mix has the same concept as Which Came First but this one comes apart via the head. You pull the head apart which becomes its own bomb, the bottom becomes another bomb and the little egg inside becomes another bomb. This bath product contains Labandium Resinoid (which is an animal friendly alternative to Musk), Tonka Absolute and Bergamot Oil which gives off a very sweet but deep scent. I think when you first sniff it you get a big hit of sweet Tonka Absolute but that's just my opinion. It also contains some Lustre and Vegan Dark Chocolate for the eyes on the bomb. Priced at £6.95.

Flopsy Face Wash Jelly

This is a brand new product for this year's Easter range. Flopsy is a cute rabbit that lathers up and becomes a face wash. I think that Flopsy reminds me of the angry rabbit filter from Snapchat. This lovely rabbit consists of Fresh Carrot Infusion, Buchu, Bergamot and Lemon Oils which gives the product a wonderful citrus scent, Kaolin which helps to cleanse and exfoliate, Almond Oil and Carageenan Extract which makes this a face jelly. Priced at £7.95 for 200g

Chocolate Easter Egg Soap

This soap as a whole is meant to look like a massive easter egg hence it's name. This soap has a base of Coconut and Rapeseed Oils which ensures that the soap is nourishing to the skin. This soap also contains Extra Virgin Coconut, Grapefruit and Sicilian Lemon Oils, Vanilla Absolute and Vegan White Chocolate. All of these ingredients give the product a creamy scent due to the Vegan White Chocolate and Vanilla Absolute but you get a subtle citrus hint from the Grapefruit and Sicilian Lemon. I think its great for when you want a soap that has a bit of citrus but isn't too bright that it's off putting in the Winter months. Priced at £4.20 per 120g.

Wash Behind Your Ears Shower Gel 

A shower gel at Easter at Lush?! This is a brand new item for 2017. This shower gel consists of Fresh Carrot Infusion, Neroli, Rose and Sunflower Oils and Jasmine Absolute which gives this product a sweet yet deep scent mixed with citrus. That sounds weird, I know, but the best way to sum it up is to mix Bunch Of Carrots or the Carrot Soap from a few years ago and mix with Prince Charming. I think the sweetness comes from the Rose Oil. I tried this in store and when sniffing it I'm not sure what to think but when having it on my skin I can tell why Lush have decided to put this in the range so I'd definitely recommend trying it in store if possible. Priced at £5.95 for 100g.

There you have it. The Lush Easter 2017 range that is available to everyone (there is a couple of online exclusives like the normal products reformulated into eggs but if you want to find out more about them then you can check out the Lush website here.
