    Mini Lush Easter Haul 2017

    I love a bath. Like, really love a bath so whenever lush has a new seasonal range I do my little happy dance and head on down for a bit of retail therapy. I’m fortunate enough to have the Oxford Street store as my local, and as soon as I step through those heavenly scented doors I’m like a kid in a candy shop. I could have done some serious damage but decided to restrain myself to four products and with the help of the lovely sales assistant we narrowed the easter range down to the following four.

    Firstly, and probably most obviously, I had to pick up a golden egg. The golden egg was one of the first Lush products that I ever tried and as I sat in the golden glittery water I wished a sparkly bath every day. The golden egg is a bath bomb melt, meaning it contains cocoa butter that melts away leaving you with sensuously soft skin. If you’ve ever tried handling one of these you’ll know how glittery they are and once dissolved in the water you are left bathing in a river of gold. Heavenly.

    Next up was this cute little guy, the Chick ‘n’ Mix, a good old fashion bath bomb. This guy is huge and you could easily split him in half and have two baths. With the uplifting scent of bergamot, this bath bomb is sure to leave you zinging. The sales assistant described this as a more savoury scent, resembling incense rather than the sweet smells incorporated into a lot of the Lush range. Along with the promise of a little surprise I also fell in love with his cute wonky eyes and I had to take him home. (I used this one last night and it left the water a sort of swampy green… I wasn’t digging the Shrek vibes and so wouldn’t repurchase.)

    There were a lot of egg-shaped goodies to choose from but the Big Blue Egg stood out to me. Also a bath bomb and full of lovely sea salt and seaweed this bomb promises a sea blue bath with scents of lavender and lemon oil… mmmm. I loved watched the seaweed as it emerged from the bomb, it left me bathing in crystal blue water and reminded me of holidays in the Maldives.

    Finally, I needed some bubbles and so couldn’t resist picking up a bunch of carrots. This re-usable bubble bar is just so adorable, the three brightly coloured carrots dangle daintily from their string and promise to give oodles of soft citrus bubbles.

    I hope you enjoyed a little look into the Lush Easter 2017 range! What are your favourite Lush products?

      Your photography is so gorgeous for this post, everything is so bright and beautiful! I think that Lush have pulled it out of the bag with their Easter range, the carrots and the golden egg are both fab!

        Love it! It does have glitter but only a tiny amount, like just enough to make the water a little shimmery 🙂 xx

    10. April 6, 2017 / 5:39 pm

      They look amazing! I have actually never used Lush bath bomb coz I never had a bathtub but now I do… feel like i’ll pop by Lush ahah!! xx Corinne

        I don’t have a bathtub when I’m in London, I have to come home to my parent’s house to use theirs. I just can’t go without a bath for too long they’re so relaxing 😛 xx

    11. April 6, 2017 / 5:50 pm

      I’m so jealous Oxford Street is your local Lush, it’s INCREDIBLE in there! I’m slowly working my way through the easter collection, I’m not brave enough to use my Golden Egg yet though, the cleaning up after will be a nightmare!

        April 6, 2017 / 5:58 pm

        There is a lot of glitter!! I like to think it makes all the sewers sparkly haha

      I’m soooo jealous! I don’t have a bathtub in my flat so the only time I get to buy myself some bath bombs is when we go on holiday. All the stuff sounds amazing!
