Lush Haul

Hi everyone!

Who else is having January blues? The only good thing about this month is my birthday but I did feel slightly depressed about turning 20! With tons of assignments and exams to do this month I thought that the most relaxing thing a girl can do is have a lush bath! So I went to my local Lush store with my sister the other day and with the help of lovely Robyn, I picked out many things to try out. Can I just say how nice she was! Oh my, she was the perfect employee treating me with respect and as a friend making that special connection which makes me want to return there already!

So the things that I've bought are:
- Granny Takes a Dip Bubble Bar
- Sex Bomb Bath Ballistic
- Rose Jam Bubbleroon
- Lover Lamp Bath Bomb
- Big Bang Bubble Bar
- Intergalactic Bath Bomb
- The Experimenter Bath Bomb
- Oral Pleasure Tantric Toothy Tabs
- Dirty Toothy Tabs
- Golden Handshake Hot Hand Mask
- Honey Trap Lip Balm
- Whip Stick Lip Balm

The Big Bang Bubble Bar caught my attention straight away because of the colours and scent. It smells really citrusy and I can't wait to try it out!

I've always wanted to try Sex Bomb! It is so girly and pretty, just what a girl needs! It smells amazing.

Oh just look at it! It is soooo pretty! I can't wait to try this out but I don't want to ruin it :((

Robyn advised me on how to use this and you're meant to melt it in a bowl with hot water and either soak your hands in the bowl or wrap them up in foil after applying the cream. I really want to use it but I don't want to use it all up cos it smells amazing!!
You probably already know why I picked this bath bomb haha. Yes it is very colourful and just what I like to see around my bathroom. I can't wait to use it! I hope my bath will turn all sort of colours.

This bath bomb is sooo glittery! My hands were covered in it as soon as I got it out the wrapper. You ant see it very well but there's lots of it inside as well. Eeeek!

I'm pretty sure that this bath bomb is limited edition for Valentine's Day - the name kind of gives it away... I love the detail of the love hearts around it - Robyn showed me how fast it fizzes in the water and that it has cute little edible heart bits inside it that dissolve - quite similar to Stardust.

I've never tried any of the toothy tabs but saw the Oral Pleasure ones at the till so picked them up and then was advised to try the original minty ones first as the taste isn't very pleasant the first time you try them out. I don't know whether I should be excited or scared?

Now, this is any blogger's all time favourite. I can't believe that I've never bought this before.. How silly of me! It's colourful and smells amazing - end of.

The lovely Robyn sneakily put the Whip Stick lip balm in my bag for me to find when I got home! How sweet of her!

Have you tried any of these products? If so, which ones were your favourite?

Lots of Love,

Review || Lush Cosmetics Butterball Bath Bomb

Evening my lovelies!

I recently purchased a new Lush bath bomb so thought I'd share what i thought of it with you. I picked up my all time favourite 'Think Pink' and a new addition 'Butterball'. So, from the name itself you can already tell that Butterball is a body butter in a form of a bath bomb, so the best time to use it is after having a shower and then hop in a warm bath with the bomb melted as it will soften your skin and make it smell amazing!

I didn't ask what this product was best for but I'm guessing it's mostly suitable for people with dry skin who need that extra moisture out of their body products!

The texture of the product was very crumbly and oily, which you would expect from a bath bomb and a body butter mixed together. The smell was amazing! I believe that it is honey scented and I love sweet  smells, especially when it comes to baths. 

You can see the butter chunks which are the yellowy shade. They melted in the hot water after a few minutes which made my bath smell amazing and body feel extra smooth. Once my body absorbed all the butter from the bomb it felt and smelt amazing for the rest of the day, I definitely recommend this product to people who like me, suffer from dry sin and are after that extra bit of glow for their dull skin, it's perfect to use before a date or a night out as it has bits of shimmer in it.

Have you tried this product? What did you think of it?

Lots of love,

Review || Lush Cosmetics Sakura Bath Ballistic

Hi there my lovelies!
Who's a big fan of Lush cosmetics? Me, me, me!!! I love their bath bombs and ballistics so much! I've tried a few so far, including Think Pink and Space Girl and those two are my favourite so far, however this time I decided to go for this limited edition bath ballistic called 'Sakura'. On the description in store it said that it has a fizzing surprise inside and makes the whole bathroom smell like cherry heaven. I was very excited to use it, especially as I've been stressing out a lot about going back to college and applying for University is taking its toll out on me.
Neatly packaged! I really do like my local Lush store staff, they are all very nice and friendly! Just what a girl wants. The woman who served me was very helpful and knew literally everything about this product. I felt like I was in bath bomb heaven.
This is what the bomb looked like. It looks like an ostrich egg with spray paint on it. It smelled quite strong of cherries, it wasn't the most realistic scent but it smelled like a cherry lollipop which was also pleasant. It was very powdery and started to crumble in my hand so I had to chuck it in the bath!
That's what the colours looked like close-up.It looks a little bit like polystyrene, don't you think?
It kept fizzing and fizzing and fizzing and I could not find the 'surprise' anywhere... It smelled good for about 20 minutes and that was it. It did not colour the water either which was the biggest disappointment for me. Overall, I did not like this bath bomb one bit because of its lack of colour and smell. I would not purchase this product again.
I hope this review was useful to you guys, and will help with your future trips to Lush! Have a lovely Evening my beauties! :*
Lots of love,

Review || Black Acres Soap Pantry Bath Bomb

Good Afternoon!
The weather is settling down, meaning that Autumn is just behind the corner, lurking with its nasty rain and thunder. I don't know about you guys, but I actually adore heat and just roasting in the sun, catching a nice tan but I also enjoy the cold days in and out, having a cuppa and catching up with college work or friends.
Cold weather also means another thing - long hot baths. I love using bath bombs and do not enjoy my baths as much without them. I recently bought this bath bomb set for £3.50 from a local home décor shop which smells of honey and flowers.
As you can see, the bath bombs are white with yellow flower petals in them, which actually annoyed me a bit because I don't like it when things float in my bath! I could barely see anything as there was so many!
Cute little label x
I was trying to take a nice close up picture of the ballistics but my camera kept going out of focus! :@
Here it is before I chucked it in the bath. It was very powdery in touch, as in it kept crumbling off. The smell of honey was so strong that it made me sneeze! Those bath bombs are much more intense in scent than the Lush ones I've previously reviewed here.
The petals were very long and hard to take out after my bath as there was so many!!
Bath with petals featuring my big toe and tattoo haha!
I hope you guys enjoyed this little review, there will be more to come soon!
Lots of love,
