IMG_1583

A wonderful evening for those looking to self pamper, or with a loved one!

I was very lucky to attend this event for Valentine’s day for me to review for my blog. The lovely ladies at Bournemouth’s Lush welcomed us with lovely Rose and Raspberry mock tail to set the mood, and introduced themselves to us and gave us an overview of what will be happening during the night.

We also introduced ourselves and then relaxed whilst sipping the delicious mock tails and browsing the store as it was closed to the public – giving us free reign of the stock to try!

To start with we each created the Sex Bomb bath bombs, and was taught how the master compactors at the nearby Lush factory make hundreds each per eight hour shift, as they are seasoned professionals – where as it took me two tries to create one where you can see the Rose!

After this, we were introduced to Lush’s collection of solid massage bars and given information about each type and what they’re best for. Then we all grabbed a massage bar each, and gave each other arm and hand massages after learning the special techniques that Lush utilise in their Spa’s to soothe their clients aches and pains.

Once we were soothed, we had more mock tails and then made our own Rosy Cheeks face mask from scratch, learning the important properties each ingredient contributes to the mask and the benefits they give the skin.

After all the events and activities we were allowed once more to peruse the shelves and select items we want to purchase, as well as one-on-one time with a Lush expert to have our queries answered! The lovely ladies bid us adieu! and gave us a wonderful goody bag, each containing a few surprise goodies and our personally handmade bath bombs and face mask!

Pop in to your local Lush store to see if they are holding an event soon. The next one open to public in Bournemouth is on the 28th March 6-8pm for Mother’s Day celebrations, please contact the store to reserve a spot!

Lush – Toner Water – Eau Roma Water

FullSizeRender_1

An incredibly refreshing, lavender and rose water toner spray!

This is my first go at a Lush toner water spray! They have numerous ones to choose from – a tea tree one, a sea breeze aloe vera one, and this lavender and rose water one.

I decided to take this one as its boasted as “aromatherapy in a spray” due to the lavender and rose water – and it is soothing and relaxing. I love using this before bed due to the lavender soothing nature. The rose water helps to calm any redness where as the lavender water, as well as soothe, balances the skin.

I have used this bottle for two weeks, and I am very excited to purchase the big version when it runs out. It has helped keep my skin matte for longer – I sometimes get very oily after toning and cleansing my skin. It also helps moisturise my skin which helps me with my morning routines.

Bottom Line: Aromatherapy and toning all in one magnificent bottle!

Price: £4.95 at Lush

Lush – The Kiss Lip Scrub – Valentines 2017

fullsizerender-19

A lovely sweet and salty lip scrub, which tastes as good as it scrubs!

This lip scrub is a vibrant red that leaves a pink tint to your lips. It has a lovely cherry scent but a sherbet-esque sweet and salty taste. It’s quite hard to use as I keep on trying to lick it off my lips- like a devilish doughnut.

It’s perfect for using before a matte/liquid lipstick as it scrubs away all your dead skin and conditions and hydrates your lips all in one -allowing a flawless application of the lipstick. It’s made up of sugar and salt – allowing natural and soft exfoliation. It isn’t harsh, and I even used it on my cut lip and it didn’t hurt or make it worse – it’s very gentle!

This lip scrub is self preserving and vegan! So it is perfect for using for a long while. I’ve been using it twice daily (in the morning and before bed) and I still have loads left!

This one has cute edible little hearts in as it is a Valentines day exclusive! It would make a cute little gift to get lips truly kissable.

Bottom Line:  A sherbet exfoliation extraordinaire!

Price: £5.75 at Lush
(This is a Valentines day special so get it quick!)

Why does this beauty have to be a Christmas exclusive?! It’s so unbelievably good!

With all of Lush’s lip scrubs, they are so devilishly tasty, and this Sugar Plum Fairy is no exception! This lip scrub is the most prettiest shade of purple, and has a lovely fruity/berry taste. It’s quite hard to use as I keep on trying to lick it off my lips- like a devilish doughnut.

It’s perfect for using before a matte/liquid lipstick as it scrubs away all your dead skin and conditions and hydrates your lips all in one -allowing a flawless application of the lipstick.

This lip scrub is self preserving and vegan! So it is perfect for using for a long while. I’ve been using it twice daily (in the morning and before bed) and I still have loads left!

Bottom Line:  The most tastiest lip scrub I have ever had – and it’s an unbelievable soft exfolaiter!
