I recently used up the last of my shampoo bar and decided to make a trip into LUSH for another. Like a magnet, I was drawn to some newly released items and picked up some new bits and bobs that smelt too good to pass up.
Each year LUSH nails it on the head with new products for Mother’s Day. In the past, they’ve been some of my favourite and most memorable items. These seasonal and holiday themed launches are limited edition and disappear from shelves pretty quickly. Once they’re gone…they’re gone. At least until next year (if we are lucky enough for them to return). Which is exactly why I grabbed two of these adorable critters. Yes, I will be sharing one with my momma, but I couldn’t resist picking up one for myself as well.
They’re supposed to smell like peppermint and geranium, but my nose seems to recognize more bubblegum aromas. I do really love the scent, but the bright red and purple colours were a total selling point as well.
LUSH recently released a line of Luxury Bath Oils, which seem to be a revamped version of their Bath Melts. I got sucked into their cute miniature size and decent price-point, grabbing two to try.
This is a citrus lover’s dream! My mom said it smelt a bit like Pledge…
The ingredients used to create these slippery blobs include lemon, lime and lemongrass oils. Therefore it doesn’t really smell anything like mango. But it does contain mango butter, so the product name isn’t completely random.
I think it’s supposed to look like a little green mango, but instead it kind of looks like an alien’s egg. The green and orange colours are super vibrant and groovy looking, mashed together like Play-do.
This one is my favourite! It’s sugary-sweet, but not overpowering. While You’ve Been Mangoed is sure to awaken all senses, Floating Island is a more relaxing scent, perfect for unwinding after a long or stressful day.
I’m quite happy I gave these puppies a try, for I am super impressed! I used Floating Island first (I had to fuel my vanilla addiction) but chose to chop it in half. Surprisingly, one portion was enough to make my water feel soft and luxurious. I couldn’t believe how moisturized and nice my skin felt afterwards.
As someone who tends to forget body lotion, I think these luxury bath oils are a great solution. My body felt hydrated and smooth for days. Needless to say…I’m a fan! I can’t wait to buy more and hope that LUSH launches new scents soon.
Finally, we arrive at the real reason I went to LUSH…
No, this is not cheese. It’s a hydrating shampoo filled with coconut and it smells like a tropical vacation. My hair tends to be on the drier side and frizzes out of control most days. I wanted something that would tame my strands and having Pina Colada scented hair didn’t seem like such a bad thing. It doesn’t lather quite the same way solid shampoo bars do, but does the job to clean, hydrate and add shine to my hair.
I’m quite pleased with my new purchases, but as always, look forward to seeing what LUSH does next. They always have us on our toes, don’t they?
