Last weekend, Matt and I decided to take a trip down to Bluewater for a spot of shopping. Our first port of call was popping into Lush as I heard all about their new Easter Collection. At this moment, Matt gave me a basket, told me to fill it up with whatever I wanted and to tell him when I was ready to pay – the phrase kid in a candy shop fits perfectly here. So here are my thoughts on the new collection, courtesy of my lovely one.
Rose Bubble Bar: £2.95
For the longest time I was never a fan of floral scents, opting for more fruity and sweet fragrances. I think the turning point for this was when I purchased the Korres Japanese Rose shower gel and my love of all things rose began. So I naturally made a beeline when I saw this shimmering little swirl on display. The smell isn’t artificial at all, and would be great for anyone who finds some of the lush scents overpowering. I think the only potential problem with this one is you would struggle to get more than one use from it, which I know could be an issue for some people.
The Comforter Bubble Bar: £4.75
If you are a regular reader of mine, you will know this is my ultimate lush favourite that I can’t resist picking up every time I visit a store. I don’t know what else I can add about this one that I haven’t said before, it smells amazing, has about 3 uses and creates lots of pink bubbles – buy it!
Immaculate Eggception Bath Bomb: £6.95
This is one of lush’s signature giant bath bombs, the concept is that you can break it in half and inside has another smaller bath bomb, meaning you get three uses in total, making the seemingly high price tag a little easier to take. The smell is really hard to pin point of this one, it’s kind of musky but citrusy at the same time, and truth be told I’m still not 100% sure if I like it! But I’m hoping that it will diffuse a bit when it dissolves in the bath.
Hoppity Poppity Bath Bomb: £2.50
Firstly how adorable is this! I think it would be the perfect gift for anyone at Easter who is trying to avoid chocolate, and after showing it to my young cousins it was a winner with them. It is made with popping candy so it gives off a sizeable fizz, and has a sweet smell. I will however say it all happens pretty quickly and soon dissolves down to nothing, but for £2.50 you can’t really complain.
Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb: £2.95
If you love mmmelting marshmallow moment, snow fairy or creamy candy then you’ll love this. It is really moisturising and smells amazing, easily my favourite of the whole collection. I know some people are against that strong candy floss smell, but I personally can’t get enough, it is exactly what I want from a bath bomb, and only £2.95 you can afford to stock up without breaking the bank.
Bunch of Carrots Bubble Bar: £5.95
Last of the haul are these bunch of carrots, more of a novelty than something that I would actively want, but Matt was super impressed by these. Lush tend to bring out these reusable bubble bars with each of their collections. Again a very citrusy scent, and you use them by simply swishing them under running water for a bright orange, bubbly bath.
Overall, I’m pretty impressed with this collection, a lot more so than the Mother’s Day & Valentines, which truth be told I didn’t even bother with. The colours and scents scream summer, and have left me wishing for the warmer weather!
Have you tried any of the Easter collection, if you have let me know what is your favourite piece, or what you can’t wait to try!
