Welcome to a brand new blog post. A while ago, I went to Lush to pick up their Mothers Day range and I thought that it was finally time to tell you all what I thought about the range.
The Elephant In The Tea Room
This elephant is packing their trunk to say goodbye to the tub. Not only does this bomb look cute as it is the hybrid of an elephant and a tea pot. This bomb contains Bergamot and Lemon Myrtle Oils, Benzoin Resinoid, Powdered Gunpowder and Sencha Teas. Apparently this is a new scent called Tea and Biscuits at Lush which I get but to me that kind of sounds pretty vague. To me, this kind of gives me Earl Grey Tea vibes. If anyone remembers the Shades Of Earl Grey Massage Bar, imagine that but a little less creamy and a little bit more citrus based. This bomb to me is mainly citrus with a touch of sweetness that is coming from the Benzoin. The tea does come through but it doesn’t overwhelm which I was surprised at as when lush have used tea before it’s been the predominant scent in the product. I really like this but I think that this scent would do really well in the autumn as well as the spring whether as a limited or all year round product. Priced at £6.
Atom Heart Mother
I did talk about this product last year so I will keep this one short. This bomb shares the same scent as the old scent So White. Some do say that So White and Once Upon A Time are the same scent but to me OUAT has a little bit more of a floral sort of slightly biscuit based scent to it than a fruity scent that So White has. Apples are a big part of both Spring and Autumn to me so this product screams Spring to me due to its Apple based scent that is provided by Rose Absolute, Neroli, Orange Flower Absolute and Brazilian Orange Oil. I absolutely love this bomb. Priced at £5.
This was our last year but in the form of a bubble bar, so this one will be kept quite short too. If you have been a Lush customer for a while then you may know the scent of this product by a different name. Christmas Eve/The Great Wave. This bomb contains Jasmine and Ylang Ylang which to me creates a sort of creamy yet very strong floral scent. Slightly like the scent of when you walk into a florist. This product also contains Rice Starch which gives a soothing property to the bath which I always adore due to having slightly dry skin. Priced at £4.50
A micro-influencers bathing dream has come true. A bath that is completely rose gold inside and out! This bath bomb contains Ylang Ylang and Bergamot Oils, Benzoin Resinoid and Orris Root Powder which gives the bomb a sort of floral sweet scent. To me, this scent reminded me of Coconut more than anything. I like Coconut but I wasn’t expecting it to smell like this from the ingredients that are in this bomb. Does anyone else get Coconut? Let me know. Priced at £6.
Snap this bubble bar in half and share with your ultimate bestie! Not only does this product look amazing due to it having a sort of entwined giraffes design but it smells amazing too! This product contains Brazilian Orange and Lime Oils which to me creates a very sort of sparkling citrus smell. Honestly this bubble bar reminds me of the Celebrate/Golden Wonder/Bubbly scent from Lush which I absolutely adore! Priced at £6.
Yummy Custard Body Wash
Who doesn’t want some lovely thick creamy stuff smeared all over them in the shower? I’ve been loving the sample of Posh Chocolate Body Wash that I got a while ago, so when I saw that Lush had released another Body Wash, I was intrigued to see what it was like. This product contains Vanilla Oat Milk, Vanilla Pod Powder and Aloe Vera Gel. I guess the gel is to help with the texture of the product and to provide a bit of nourishing and healing properties to the skin whilst the double vanilla make up the scent of this product. To me, this smells like when you open a can of Ambrosia custard. Lush had a product out years ago called Hair Custard and this body wash smells the exact same as that to me! I absolutely love it. Priced at £8 per 100g.
Mimosa Shower Gel
Cheers, Sweetie Darling. Who doesn’t love a good Mimosa? Not only is the name of this gel referencing that feel good drink but is also referencing the Mimosa Flower which sometimes gets forgotten due to the very well known drink. This gel contains Elderflower Infusion, Fresh Orange Juice, Wine Lees and Sweet Wild Orange Oils and Carnation. Absolute. This combination of scents to me reminds me of a Mimosa cocktail with a touch of floral pepperiness in the background which I’m guessing is from the Carnation and Elderflower. The texture is quite nice. Reminds me of a slightly thick serum to me. If you like anything citrus based then you will definitely love this Shower Gel! Priced at £7 for a 120g bottle.
Buzzy Mums may not have the time, but they deserve the self care! This soap not only smells cute but looks cute as it is in the shape of a very buzzy buzzy bee who are in dire need of being saved! This soap contains Camelina Seed Sativa Infusion, Camelina Sativa Seed Oil, Peach Powder, Carnation Absolute and Sweet Wild Orange Oil. To me, this soap smells like a sort of sweet floral concoction. I like it but I kind of wished that the Peach was a little bit more pronounced. Priced at £6.
Lovely Hand Balm
To misquote Scouting For Girls, they’re so lovely! Who doesn’t love a good bit of hand care? Everyone needs to have soft hands especially after the past two years! This hand product contains Everlasting Flower Absolute and Ylang Ylang which to me creates a sort of delicate soft floral scent. To me, it reminds me of slightly scented laundry detergent. This product contains a plethora of softening ingredients like Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Aloe Vera Gel and Macadamia Nut Oil to ensure that your hands are soft for hours and hours! Priced at £12.
Wondermum Eye Mask
Wondermum to the rescue! This eye pad contains a plethora of ingredients including Fennel Seed and Saffron Infusion, Fresh Carrot Juice, Aloe Gel and Carrageenan. These ingredients combine to help the eyes and to give customers who use this product a good amount of me time that they definitely deserve. The ones I used sadly ripped before I used them so it was a bit of a pain to use them. Priced at £5.
Here’s a photo of the Just For You gift that you can buy that includesThe Olive Branch Shower Gel and Lovely Hand Balm. Priced at £16.
