Recent Purchases: Lush


Hi everyone! Since I have recently made a few new purchases from Lush, I thought I would do a haul to show all of you what I have got. I also bought some other goodies, which were targeted towards skincare rather than body care, and I decided that I'd just show the bath stuff today, and leave the other for another time.
Bath Bombs

L-R; Butterball / Think Pink / Sex Bomb
 Butterball Bath Bomb / £2.65 - Even though this particular bath bomb may not look like it's anything special, I've read quite a few reviews about it on the website, which persuaded me to give it a go. The main ingredients are cocoa butter, and ylang ylang oil, which help to calm, and soothe both the skin, and the mind. It's described as 'the bath bomb to replenish dry, sensitive, or irritated skin', as well as helping to relieve anger, panic, and fear. It's one of the more natural bath bombs, and I honestly think that sometimes natural is best. You don't always have to have huge chunks of glitter, and multi-coloured streaks through the bath. I'm really excited to try this product out in particular, and it smells really nice as well!

Think Pink Bath Bomb / £2.65 - I've used this bath bomb once before in the post, and I absolutely loved it from what I can recall. It contains Tonka absolute, vanilla absolute, neroli oil, and lavender oil, which means that it's quite a sweet, sensual fragrance, but it's also relaxing, due to the different oils that it has in it. There are 3 little rice paper confetti hearts that are imprinted into the centre of this bath bomb, and that doesn't really bother me in the slightest, as I think it's just a sweet little touch to the product. It's quite a bright pink, so it turns the bath a beautiful dusky rose colour, and I love it when the bath water changes colour. I find it all the more relaxing, and it really does help me to unwind after a long day.

Sex Bomb Bath Bomb / £3.50 - Although this is more of an expensive purchase, I really wanted to have quite a splurge, as I hadn't ordered from Lush online before, and I had been wanting to bite the bullet for ages, so I eventually did, and I thought I might as well go a little bit crazy! I can't actually remember if I've tried this bath bomb before, so I can't really comment, but it's honestly absolutely stunning. It's probably one of the prettiest bath bombs in terms of appearance that I've ever seen! It contains jasmine, which is known to be 'floral, and seductive', clary sage oil, which is 'calming, sensual, and soothing', and also, ylang ylang oil (noticed a theme yet?), which is 'sweet, heady, and floral'. The name will either lure you in, or push you away, but for me, I honestly don't have a problem with it! I'm really into soothing, aromatherapy type bathing products, and so it's no wonder that this one stuck out to me. I can't wait to try it out!

L-R; Creamy Candy / Unicorn Horn / The Comforter

Creamy Candy Bubble Bar / £2.95 - Next up, I purchased the Creamy Candy Bubble Bar. Once again, it has vanilla absolute, known for it's 'sweet, and comforting scent', organic cocoa butter, described as 'softening, and conditioning', and almond oil, which provides 'hydration for skin, and hair'. The website states that it smells like sweet candy floss, and it's thought to raise your energy levels, and perk you up. It also offers extra moisturisation than the average bubble bar. Cool, or what? With bubble bars, you can get quite a few uses out of them, so it's suggested that you break a piece of, and crumble it under running water for the best effect, and hence the name, it will create a tonne of bubbles!

Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar / £4.25 - Much to my dismay, I have actually already used most of this bubble bar up, and unfortunately it's limited edition too. How sad is that! I honestly love it so much. If I were you, I'd get your hands on it straight away before it's no longer available in store, or online. This magical bubble bar contains lavender oil, which is 'balancing, and calming', ylang ylang oil, which, as I've said is 'sweet, heady, and floral', and neroli oil, which is described as being 'uplifting, and toning'. Not only does it make my skin, and the bath water so soft, and soothing, but it also completely calmed me down, and made me feel very at ease. I thoroughly enjoyed using this product, but I really do hope that Lush introduce it to the permanent bubble bar collection!

The Comforter Bubble Bar - £4.95 / Last, but not least, I purchased one of the most raved about bubble bar's from Lush, which is 'The Comforter'. I'm sure most of you have heard about it by now, but it's taken me ages to actually convince myself that I needed to give it a go for myself, whilst I had the perfect opportunity, because I really do feel as though I have been missing out. It is actually pretty expensive, because it's nearly a fiver for one product, but I'm pretty sure it will be worth the price, and the wait. Everyone says that the smell replicates that infamous Ribena flavour, and since giving it a whiff, I honestly think it does! I used to have Ribena all the time when I was little, and this product really does bring back all of the nostalgia surrounding my childhood. According to the description on the website, it's the Cassis absolute, which gives this bubble bar the distinctive blackcurrant fragrance, so that would explain why everyone associates it with actual Ribena!
I hope you all enjoyed taking a peak at my recent Lush purchases. What are some of your favourites?
Lots of love,
Jade x
