LUSH 2017 EASTER RANGE

I hope you all put a Spring in your step this Easter with my Lush Easter Beauty Haul over Instagram. YES, these Lush treats should’ve had you bouncing about, so ears to hoping you had a superbly hoppy Easter. Today I will be going through my thoughts on these beauty bombs, so prepare yourself for a few funny yolks along the way, and make sure you look out for next years 2018 Easter range.

A few weeks ago, I was invited to attend the LUSH bloggers event at my local LUSH store, which was a complete honour! Right up until the last moment where I couldn’t make it because PREGNANCY got in the way. You know, some days are superb and others not so much. As you can imagine, I totally wanted to risk it, but you never know what to expect when there’s a little chick waiting to hatch. I had to unfortunately give the event a skip, but I still managed to get my hands on the new fun Easter range from LUSH.

First up, we have a BUNCH OF CARROTS BUBBLE BAR. These are SO CUTESY for some magic in the bathtub! What’s even better is that these carrots are reusable and can last for 30 baths in total between the collection – that’s 10 baths per carrot and a whole lot of bubbles. These are also fun for kids to use. Simply hold a carrot under the running tap, watch the bubbles pop and the water change colour! These also aren’t your average vitamic C carrots, just by the way. These bubble bars are rich with lemon, bergamot, and buchu oils to fill your tub with citrusy bubbles and scents.

Next, we have the GOLDEN EGG BATH BOMB. With explosions (literally) of glitter and cocoa butter, you’re guaranteed to come out looking all sparkly and feeling moisturised. This bomb melts in the bath and turns the water bright yellow – almost as if you’ve cracked an egg! This is a slow melting bath bomb and spins about dissolving in the water like a baked potato!

This next one is one of my favourites. It involves a bunny, and a squeaky clean face. Yip, it’s time to meet FLOPSY! This is a face cleanser or if we want to get technical, Flopsy is actually a face wash cleanser. How does it work, you may be wondering? Well that’s an easy one! Flopsy lives in a tub. Everytime you want to use your little jelly, all you need to do unsquish him out the tub, stroke over your face, or rub between your paws to get it frothy and create a lather. This is also the best smelling bunny in Town. Bergamot oils and zesty lemon will leave you feeling jolly with this jelly!

If you’re looking for a bigger bomb, then the CHICK ‘N MIX is perfect for you. This little (or rather large, actually) bomb is basically is 2 bombs in one – winning! Chick n mix is a fun mixture of half yellow and half blue with a little orange egg. They can be used together or for 2 separate baths, to make your bomb go further. This bomb is the perfect excuse to get chicky with it, with bergamot oils, tonke absolute and a few surprises in the bath.

My final bomb of the day is the “Which came first” egg. Plop this bomb into the bath to see whether the chicken or the egg surfaces first. It’s petty egg-straordinary if you ask me and smells just like Spring. If you’re looking for relaxation, then look no further. Scents of refreshing lemon and grapefruit oils are sure to make the water super soft and creamy.

Which came first?

I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter and that your Sunday was at the very least, a good hare day.

Until next time,

BUTTER-UP, BUTTERCUP!!!

If, for some peculiar reason, you have ever wanted to be a walking Turkish Delight advert, frolicking your way down the streets of the city this Summer, then I have JUST the solution for you.

Prepare to smell like the sweetest Petal in Town with the ever so delicious scents of the African Alchemy Body Butter. Hints of Cocao butter, Coconut oil, Cold pressed Almond oil, Rose geranium and Sandalwood essential oils come out to play releasing an overall scent of Summer sweetness and absolute deliciousness – almost good enough to eat!! All together, one can expect to smell like the Dandiest of Delilahs, radiating fragrances of Calming Cocoa, Turkish Delight and subtle hints of our favourite Anonymous Almonds make an appearance too.

If you are a Natural Netty and are in awe of organic products, then I’m ecstatic to tell you that this Body Butter is not only that, but is also raw AND cold pressed!! Such Pure Indulgence if you ask me!!

When initially dipping ones paws into this tub of bliss, feelings of soft bubbliness with a light airy texture can be felt on the fingertips when going in for a scoop. A small bit goes a long way and is seemingly fit enough to spread across a mile. I bet you’ve never come across a body butter as fit as this one! As with any other form of butter, spreading is a relatively smooth process when involving such acts over our ever so precious bodily limbs.

Moisturisation Station is a somewhat friendly stop as it does just that, and does not over extend its skills in such departments. Absorption is super well mannered and happens relatively quickly. Luckily for you, being a visual replica of an oil slick is not in the cards when using our Tantalising Turkish friend, as one is left with a gorgeous revitalising glow. How lovely and perfect for highlighting that summer kissed skin!

A tub retails for R120 and can be found at our local Paardevlei Farmers Market in Somerset West on Saturdays from 9am-2pm. Not only will you be in for a treat but you’ll also smell exactly like one, how sweet!!

Time to Butter-up, Buttercup!!!
