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.
