Lush Easter 2022 First Impressions

 Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post. I recently went out to Lush as I saw that they had released their Easter range so I thought that today I’d tell you all what I thought about the range.

Bath Bombs: 

Disco Duck 

Who doesn’t love a good disco? This bomb is a great way for anyone to celebrate Easter. Not only does this bath bomb look amazing but it also smells amazing! This bomb contains Juniperberry, Persian Lime and Rosemary Oils and Guarana Seed Powder which helps to wake you up due to its caffeine amount. The mixture of ingredients creates a sort of uplifting scent to me. This is furthered by the inclusion of popping candy and menthol crystals which help to wake you up/keep you energised through the sound of the popping candy and the invigorating properties of menthol. To me, it reminds me of a more fresh version of Vapor Rub. Yes I know that sounds weird but I urge you to sniff it and tell me different. This scent also shares it scent with an old product called Patty On which was a shower jelly designed to help you stay alive and alert for the all night party, to help you with the hangover the morning after or both! Even if it does smell like Vapor Rub, I really like this product. Priced at £4,

The Flying Carrot 

Let’s go fly a kite! This is one of the most adorable bath bombs ever! Who doesn’t love a bunny flying across the world in a carrot? This bomb contains Sicilian Lemon, Lemon Myrtle and Rosewood Oils and Carrot Powder. There are many fun surprises with this product, from the popping candy hidden beneath the surface of this product to this product actually being two different bath bombs. That’s right! The little bunny in this product can be used as a separate bath bomb. This product also shares its scent with the old Refresher Shower Jelly which I adored when it was out in stores! If you’re looking to give someone a gift this Easter, I would really recommend this product! Priced at  £6.50.

Follow The White Rabbit 

Let’s follow the white rabbit and see what they’re up to! This bath bomb was out last year so I am going to keep this one short. This bomb contains Bergamot, Buchu and Sicilian Lemon Oil. This product also contains a plethora of colours and a pinch of Popping Candy. If you used to like the Snowman Shower Jelly/Bunch Of Carrots Bubble Bar then you’ll love this bomb as much as I do. Priced at £4.

Flamingo Egg 

Let’s go-go-flamingo! I’ve talked about this product before too. This product contains Sicilian Lemon and Vetivert Oils and Labdanum Resinoid which to me creates a sort of sweet coconut scent. This bomb also contains Coarse Sea Salt to add a bit of fun to bath time. Priced at £5.

The Golden Egg 

I want my geese to lay gold eggs for Easter! 

 I have talked about this a lot on the blog. This bomb not only looks the part but smells the part too! This product contains Brazilian Orange and Bergamot Oils. I have loved this product for years but no more. Sadly this product has been reformed too much for my liking. It’s a lot smaller, muted in scent and doesn’t have the oil layer that made it one of the best bombs ever. I wish that Lush would change it back. If you do want a great oil based bath bomb from lush I would definitely recommend Turmeric Latte. Priced at £4.50.

Bubble Bars: 

The Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny had arrived and they are ready to hop into your bath! This bubble bar contains Grapefruit, Lime and Juniperberry Oils which creates a sort of spicy yet fruity scent to me. This shares the same scent as Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar that has been a Halloween exclusive in the past. To me, this scent is more spicy with a touch of spritz to me which is weird as you’d expect it to be the other way around due to the mixture of Lime and Grapefruit.  This one definitely is eye catching in store due to the amount of glitter that this beautiful bunny is encased in. Absolutely adorable. Priced at £6.

Shower Gel: 

What’s Up Doc? Shower Gel 

I mean, is Easter truly Easter without a nod to the cartoon classic? This shower gel contains Fresh Carrot Infusion, Bergamot, Lime and Cold Pressed Carrot Oils, Violet Leaf Absolute and Carrot Juice. I wasn’t sure what to think when I saw this list of ingredients but this concoction creates a sort of slightly sort of zippy berry scent which I absolutely love as it’s deep but has a little bit of lightness to it which makes it the most superb shower gel to use in Spring. Definitely would recommend as a purchase before it disappears after Easter. Priced from £7 per 100g.

Gummy Bear Shower Jelly 

I love sharing a shower with a good bear… Grr… Is it bad I instantly had Ginger Minj’s song about Gummy Bears in my head when I saw this product? This bear isn’t just divine to look at but also smells it too. This Shower Jelly contains Fresh Mango Juice, Buchu, Cardamom, Litsea Cubebba and Sweet Wild Orange Oils and Coconut Milk. The main scent that I Get from this is Mango but a sort of complex Mango. Not too sweet, not too tart with a slight herbal grassy note to it which just makes me love it even more. The addition of coconut milk means that I know that it is going to be severely nourishing which I love due to having severely dry skin. Priced at £5.50.


Flowering Carrot 

Flowering for Spring? Groundbreaking. I love Lush’s Soaps and well Spring is normally full of touching things so Lush releasing  a cute Spring/Easter soap just makes sense. This soap contains Bergamot, Buchu, Sicilian Lemon, Fair Trade Olive Oil, and Extra Virgin Coconut Oils and Carrot Powder. This mixture creates a lovely bright and uplifting soap. The Lemon and Bergamot make this soap super zesty. If you have used anything with the Carrots scent then you will love this. This also reminds me of the original Carrot Soap that contained a engraved white rabbit in each slice. Prices at £6.

Down The Rabbit Hole Scrub 

Who doesn’t want to go down the rabbit hole? I love a good scrub! This scrub contains ground rice which helps to scrub away all that dead skin, Cocoa, Shea and Illipe Butters to help keep skin super smooth. This scrub also contains  Bergamot, Buchu, Grapefruit, Sweet Wild Orange  and Cold Pressed Raspberry Seed Oils. To me, the Raspberry Seed comes out the most. The mixture of everything else creates a bubblegum sort of scent to me and mixes with the Raspberry to create a sort of Blue Raspberry scent. I can’t wait to use this when the weather gets warmer. Priced at £8.50.

Funfetti Cake Lip Scrub 

Let them eat cake! Who doesn’t love a good lip scrub and well who doesn’t love cake? This scrub contains Caster Sugar, Extra Fine Sugar, Peach Kernel and Sicilian Lemon Oils and Vanilla Absolute. To me the Vanilla Absolute comes out a lot more than anything else and I wished that the Lemon came out more than the Vanilla. This is also a party exclusive at Lush so I’m still a bit confused on why they’ve released as to me it defeats the point of it being a party exclusive but that’s just me. Priced at £6.50.

Carrot Lip Oil 

Who doesn’t want their lips to be juicy at Easter? I love a good lip oil so I was excited to see what Lush’s was going to be like when I saw the leaked spoilers for the Easter range. This contains Grapefruit, Sandalwood, Parsley Seed and Cold Pressed Carrot Seed OIls. To me this reminds me sort of a slightly spiced sort of Carrot Cake without all of the sweetness which I really adore. I hope that this comes back out next Easter. Priced at £5.
