Lush Jelly Face Masks

I’ve been a little MIA for the past couple of weeks, for a number of different reasons but I’m so ready to get back into the blogging world because I have honestly missed it so much.

Recently, Lush released their new Jelly face masks so being the face mask advocate I am, I had to try them out. I picked up ‘Bunny Moon’ because it contains honey and camomile which is known for leaving your skin really soft and calm.

I didn’t really know what to expect as most of the face masks I use are charcoal ones but I was really excited to see what the jelly like consistency would be like. As soon as I opened the pot, I knew I’d love it; it smelt so fresh and sweet and had little gold flexes of glitter on the top.

The consistency really wasn’t what I expected at all, I thought it would be more like a runny gloop but the best way to describe it is like a chocolate mousse; which was a lot better because it made applying it a lot easier. Like with all Lush products, a little goes a long way; which is great because it means it’s going to last a lot longer and I usually apply my face masks after I have come out of the shower so my face is still a little damp as it makes it easier to spread around.

Washing the mask off was a little bit of a pain because I found that it sometimes clumps together but the end results are well worth the extra little bit of time. The mask always leaves my skin feeling so soft and super clean and I’m so desperate to give the others a try because I’m sure I will love them just as much as Bunny Moon.

Have you tried any other the Lush Jelly Face Masks?

Lush Spa

To say I love Lush is the biggest understatement; as I’m sure you know from the amount of Lush themed posts I have. The other weekend me and mum went to the Oxford St. store to have a treatment called ‘The Good Hour’. I don’t want to give anything away but let me just say, it definitely lived up to it’s name.

IMG_8753

Our treatment was a themed, 70 minute full body massage and it was the most amazing experience of my life. We arrived at the Spa and was greeted by the lovely Frankie and Emma who sat us down and told us all about the treatment and the products that would be used. It was great because we were able to say if there were any specific areas that we wanted them to focus on; to which I said the top of my back because I’ve been quite tense/stressed lately. We were then led down a cosy, dimly lit hallway to the different treatment rooms.

Once inside we were given a moment to get undressed and ready under the towel before ringing a bell to allow the treatment to begin. Now, as I said, I’m not going to ruin it by going in to a lot of details (although I’m sure you all know how a full body massage works) but the next 70 minutes were pure heaven. I completely zoned out and forgot that I was in a store on Oxford Street. It was so peaceful and tranquil and I didn’t want it to end. From the minute me and mum got up, I’m pretty sure the only thing we managed to say was ‘Oh my god’ because we were so relaxed!

Once we got dressed, we made our way back out into the kitchen area where there was a giant wooden table full of flowers and products and a little lounge area where there was a table with two cups of tea waiting for us. We sat there for a while basking in the atmosphere while talking to a lady who had just come out of a facial (which I think is going to be my next treatment)

IMG_8765Honestly, I couldn’t recommend the Lush spa enough, I came way feeling so happy and relaxed. I’m already planning my next trip. Also a huge thank you to Frankie and Emma for making me and mum feel so comfortable and welcome.

Lush Six Scents Event

Lush events are some of my personal favourites to attend, so when Lust Straford asked if I wanted to come to their first ever event of course I said yes. The event was to showcase some of their scents some of which I was familiar with and some which were new to me so I was very excited. The evening was split between six scents and each scent had an activity related to it. There were also some amazing musicians there who were preforming throughout and their song choices varied from scent to scent.

The first smell was one of my favourites; Dirty and to celebrate that we had mojitos with the cutest flamingos cocktail sticks which were sprayed with the fragrance so every time you took a sip, you got a smell of dirty. We them moved onto Karma which is quite citrusy so for this we all sat on a rag in the middle of the store and there were bowls of oranges for us and some of the staff were walking around spritzing Karma into the air. It was probably my favourite part of the evening, I could have sat there all night just talking and listening to the music.

We then moved onto Vanillary and for this, we were each given a silk scarf which had be spritzed with the scent. Normally I’m not a massive fan of this smell as I find it can be a bit too over powering but each scarf had the perfect amount on it. We also had a go at making our own Cupcake face mask which is now my favourite Lush mask. Imogen Rose followed, which I was so excited for because I love the smell of roses. For this particular scent, the lovely ladies in Lush came round with massage bars and gave us all arm and hand massages which was just heaven. We were also given some Rose flavoured Turkish delight.

The last two scents were All Good Things and Lavender Hill Mob. All Good Things was dedicated to a relationship and how it is great and sweet at the beginning but it can tour bitter and negative. We were given candy floss to symbolise the start and beer to add the bitter element to the scent. We were also given love letters to pass around that had been sprayed with the scent.  The last activity that went with Lavender Hill Mob was making our own Ickle Baby Bot while having homemade Lavender cupcakes. I love going to Lush events and being able to make my own bath bomb, it’s great to get involved and see how its done.

The whole evening was perfect, you could tell so much thought and preparation had gone into it and they all really thought about the best ways to showcase each scent. Thank you so much to Lush Stratford for inviting me and hosting THE best Lush event I have ever been to.

Lush Father’s Day Event

Lush have recently released their new Father’s day products and to celebrate, I was invited down to my local Lush store to learn all about them and see them in action. Within the new collection there are; 3 bath products, soap, a shampoo bar, an exfoliator and a moisturiser.

IMG_7282

We began the evening by making our own ‘Big Blue’ bath bomb which was so much fun, even though I spilt most of it when we had to put the container together. We then spent some time  learning all about the bath products. There are two bath bombs; Lava Lamp and Super Dad and a bubble bar which is called The Mod Father. Both the Mod Father and Super Dad products have quite a masculine smell to them whereas Lava Lamp smells very citrusy. They all smelt incredible though. The soap, which is called Thanks Dad was also just as amazing. It is moulded to look like a building block with the letters D A D on it and it a mixture of yellow and red in colour. Unlike most Lush soaps, this one felt a lot softer and looks like it would be very gentle on the skin.

 

The last 3 products are more skincare related than bath and all have the same name ‘Smuggler’s Soul’. The first one we looked at was the Shampoo bar. Now, I’ve never used a Shampoo bar before so I wasn’t sure what to expect but it looked so good! Once it was wet, it lathered up and you could tell a little would go a long way. Also this particular Shampoo bar is good if you have a dry or itchy scalp. The last two were a facial scrub and a moisturising gel. The scrub was so gentle, I was actually tempted to buy it for myself. This would be great for an everyday exfoliator that wouldn’t break out or dry your skin. The last product was the moisture gel, which again, I was to tempted to buy for myself. It is so moisturising without being too heavy and thick which is always a great thing and the smell was amazing. Although most people would think to put this on their face, you could use it as an all over body moisturiser.

Like with any Lush collection, there are also gift boxes available which are always a good way to make sure you try out every product.

Have you seen the new Father’s Day collection?

Lush 9-5 Cleanser

IMG_6278

 

Apart from the Liz Earle cleanse and polish, I haven’t found a cleaner that I love and works well for my skin, well until now.

My sister works for Lush and she recommended the 9-5 cleanser, which I had heard a bit about but had never tried.After using it for about a month now, I am officially obsessed. It’s so gentle on the skin which means that you can use it both day and night and it doesn’t leave your face feeling irritated. Sometimes I find that cleaners leave my face feeling quite tight and dry, but this leaves my skin feeling so soft and feeling amazing.

You need to tiniest bit and you can really feel is cleaning out all of your pores and the slight fragrance leaves your face smelling beautiful. I normally use the cleanser both in the morning and the evening and I follow up with a Lush toner and my moisturiser and my skin always feels so nice.

Have you used a Lush cleanser, what one if your favourite?

Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face Mask

I recently went to an event at one of my local Lush stores and they kindly gave us a bag of goodies and inside was a sample of the face mask ‘Cup O’ Coffee’. We got to try it on our hands at the event so I was so excited to try it on my face.

IMG_5076

IMG_5082

The minute you open the pot, it’s like someone has just brewed a batch of coffee. It’s quite a strong smell but, if like me, you like coffee, its actually quite a nice smell. The mask itself actually has coffee beans in it, which are great for exfoliating the face.

IMG_5114
It looks disgusting but it felt amazing!

The best thing about it smelling so strong is that you can feel it waking you and your skin up and it definitely does that! They recommend on their website to leave of your 15-20 minutes but I left mine on for about 30 and tbh, I could have left it on for even longer, purely because of the smell haha. I rinsed it off with warm water and oh my goodness, my face felt so smooth and soft and my skin immediately looked better. Luckily, I only used about half the pot, so I have some left for another one but I’m now desperate to go into a store a buy a big pot.

Lush Product Launch

I was kindly invited by my local Lush store to come and try out some of the new Oxford Street products as they are now launching them into their smaller shops. Seeing as this was my first ever blogger event, I was a little bit worried as I didn’t know what to expect but seeing as it was Lush, I couldn’t say no!

When we arrived, they talked us through everything and the products we would be looking at, which was everything from bath bombs to foot creams. They began with bath bombs and bubbles bars, my personal favourite. As they were talking about each one, they passed them around so we could all have a smell before they plopped them in a bowl of water so we could watch them fizz and change the water colour. The three that we got to try out were Frozen, Yoga and Intergalactic, which is now my new favourite.

Frozen Bath Bomb

Intergalactic Bath Bomb

Yoga Bath Bomb

My favourite thing was learning all about the ingredients that go into each product and what it can do for your skin. The shower gels are full of natural goodies so they are super nourishing and smell absolutely amazing. We got to look at Beautiful, The Comforter and Yuzu and Cocoa which are all so nice.

Top Lush Bath Products

I’m the biggest bubble bath fan and Lush is definitely my favourite shop ever, seriously, I could live in there. So I thought I would share some of my favourite bath products.

IMG_4870

Twilight

I don’t know what it is about this bath bomb but I love it, I think it’s because to me, it smells a little bit like coffee. It’s such a pretty pink colour but inside, theres a smaller blue bath bomb so when this hits the water, it produces the most amazing colours. I love it!

IMG_4867

Think Pink

Think Pink was a bath bomb that I had always seen but never really picked it up so I decided to finally give it ago, I mean look at it, it’s so pretty. When you pop this in your bath, the water goes a beautiful shade of pink, (my favourite colour) and when its all fizzed, these tiny little pink paper hearts are left at the bottom of the bath tub and its so pretty. I’m so glad I finally picked this one up and it’s definitely one of my favourites.

IMG_4881

Pop In The Bath

Bubble bars are probably my favourite Lush products because they make the water so bubbly and soft and they also change the colour. Pop In The Bath is probably the one I use the most; it smells incredible and it creates the biggest bubbles so its a win win.

IMG_4876

Rose Jam

I really wish this picture would do this bubble bar justice, but it really doesn’t. Rose Jam is the prettiest thing I have seen and honestly, I wish you could smell it, it’s insanely good! This is one that’s new to me, I’ve never been too bothered by it, but now I’m obsessed with it.

That’s just a few of my favourites, to be honest, I could sit here all day everyday writing about Lush and how much I love them but I would be here forever haha.
