Lush Valentines Day 2022 First Impressions

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post. I recently went to my local Lush store and saw that the Valnetines Day range had dropped. I grabbed some of the products in this lovely range so I thought that today I would talk to you all about the range. 

Bath Bombs: 

Big Aubergine 

Who doesn't love a good 9 inch... bath bomb? This bath bomb has been out in a slightly smaller form but no matter what size this bath bomb is, its one that is adored by all. This bomb contains Bergamot, Ho Wood and Litsea Cubeba Oils, Tonka Absolute and Fresh Aubergine. The mixture of oils creates a sort of smoky creamy sherbet scent to me. If you are familiar with the scents at Lush then you may know this scent by the name of '29 High Street'. I think that this is a great bath bomb for Valentines Day for a gift or as a treat yourself gift. I think for myself, I would cut this bomb up just as I can't fathom spending £10 on a one use bath bomb. Priced £10.

Love Bug 

Are you my Love Bug? This bath bomb looks so adorable and will definitely perk you up if you're having one of those meh days. Some of you may remember this bath bomb under their previous name 'Love Boat'. This bomb contains Sicilian Lemon, Sweet Orange and Rose Oils. I know that I said that Big Aubergine was reminiscent to sherbet in terms of scent but to me this one is definitely more sherbet reminiscent. I think where Big Aubergine had a sort of smoky note to it, this one has definitely a sort of light citrus note to it. In previous years, Love Boat reminded me more of a direct citrus scent where as Love Bug reminds me of a soft sort of citrus note. A pastel sort of version but in scent form if that makes any form of sense. I quite like this one and I think when it gets a bit warmer, this bomb would be perfect to use. Priced at £5.

Mr. Loba Loba 

You're my Lobster! I instantly saw this bomb and thought of that very well know Friends scene! This bomb contains Benzoin Resinoid. Tonka Absolute and Almond Essential Oil. To me this is a very creamy smelling product. I quite enjoy creamy scented products from Lush as they have a soothing element to them without being one note like some other creamy smelling products that I have smelt before. To me, the Almond is there to boost the other oils up and doesn't really provide much of a scent but the other two oils create a sort of creamy, slightly sweet, slightly fruity scent which I really enjoy. It's cute, smells great and is fun for everyone. What's not to love? Priced at £3.50.

Bubble Bars: 

Kim The Carrot 

Kevin's 15 minutes of fame has gone. Now it's time for Kim to shine! Okay, I have no idea if Kim was inspired by Kevin but well my mind instantly connected the two. I am not sure if the design was intentional which I mean it probably was because well Lush love to create a discussion, but, Kim can be shown to be nearly flashing something when her legs are crossed... Anyway, this bubble bar contains Benzoin Resinoid, Vanilla Absolute, Fresh Carrot Juice and Fresh Ginger Root. These oils combine to create a sort of creamy scent. To me, this bubble bar smells of those little candy cigarette sweets that everyone used to enjoy when they were younger. I know that this contains Ginger Root but as someone who loves Ginger as a ingredient in food and beauty products, I could not detect the Ginger Root at all! All in all a cool product with a nostalgic scent. Priced at £6.

Temptation (I Can Resist Anything But Temptation)( Shower Gel 

Trust me, if you know me at all I can resist nothing... I love that Lush have shortened the name of this product online because I have trouble saying my name sometimes never mind the full title of this Shower Gel. This product contains Cinnamon Stick, Red Rose and Ginseng Infusion, Organic Apple Juice, Myrrh Resinoid, Orange Flower Absolute and Cinnamon Leaf Oil. To me, these ingredients combine to create a sort of Autumnal Red Apple scent to me. Sort of what you want to smell in a burning candle at the beginning of Autumn when the weather is getting cold. If you are familiar with scents from Lush then you may know the scent in this Shower Gel through the Apple Crumble Bubble Bar. All in all, a great shower gel that I will definitely use when I want that sort of mixture of spice and fresh Spring like Apples. Priced from £7 for a 100g bottle.

Strawberry Heart Shower Jelly 

Everyone beats to their own drum! I love when Lush create a shaped Shower Jelly and this lovely slightly thematically dark Heart is no exception. I mean who doesn't want a squishy heart that only cleanses and nourishes the body but also that they can squeeze when thoughts of past lovers creep into their head? This product contains Fresh Strawberry Juice, Sicilian Lemon, Lime and Ho Wood Oils and Jasmine Absolute. To me, this concoction of oils creates a sort of fresh Strawberry Laces scent to me. I know that Strawberry Laces aren't fresh nor do they have a fresh scent to them but this product reminds me of a more real and slightly grassy smelling Strawberry Laces. I love everything about this product. The shape, the smell, the thoughts of pretending that this a real heart... Priced at £5

New Rose Soap 

Mmm... Smells like Rosebuds... This soap contains Lavender, Brazilian Orange, Ylang Ylang and Rose Hip Oils and Rose Absolute. This scent was out last Valentines Day in the form of Love Me Do Bath Melt. To me, this scent smells kind of like smoky and slightly wet fresh Cotton which I am not going to lie isn't my most favourite scent. Although I sound like I am slating it from the scent alone, I can grasp why some may really enjoy this scent palette especially in a soap format and I urge you all to go and smell it for yourselves. Priced at £7.

Hot Lips Lip Mask & Scrub 

Who doesn't love a big pair of juicy Cherry Lips? I am a bit hesitant when it comes to products such as lip masks and sheet masks due to having barely a shred of dexterity and the products being so fiddly all of the time. However, this mask was easy to put on. I always need more nourishment when it comes to my lips due to my lip piercing so I was hoping this would do that and it really did! This product contains Davana, Lime and Almond Essential Oils which creates a lovely sort of Cherry Bakewell/Cherry Lips scent. This product also contains Bamboo Stem Extract which helps to scrub the lips through rubbing some of this product all over them. I think that this is such a creative product for Lush and I definitely think that you should all try it. I absolutely love it. Priced at £3.
