Happy hump day! And more importantly, happy last day of January, the never ending month. I’m looking forward to February for longer days and cute Valentine’s day launches. I always enjoy the seasonal launches from Lush. After Halloween and Christmas, Valentine’s Day is the next major collection they release. Lush Cosmetics Valentine’s Day products were available to preorder online this year, so I placed my order a couple of weeks ago not knowing when to expect it to ship. It actually arrived shortly afterwards and so I’ve already had a chance to start working through my haul. And this morning will be sharing my picks with you.
From the Lush Cosmetics Valentine’s Day collection I ordered a mixture of bath bombs, melts and reusable bubble bars. I haven’t been overly impressed with some of the innovations from Lush over the past year (or the hike in prices!). Jelly bath bombs were a massive fail for me. And the bizarre bath bomb that was Metamorphasis was truly awful. I see that’s still for sale and am utterly baffled by it. Seriously, who is buying those?
Bubble bars are awesome as you can reuse them and usually get 4-6 baths. This obviously represents better value for money. I was sad to see some of 2017’s Lush Cosmetics Valentine’s Day products not making a return. But was pleased to note Titsy Totsy, the Unicorn Horn and Rose Bombshell made a comeback. As always there were some brand new products in the collection and I’m pleased to say, not a blob of jelly in sight.
My Lush Cosmetics Valentine’s Day Picks
An old favourite which has returned each year, Unicorn Horn is a -super cute- reusable bubble bar. It creates pink bathwater and smells of lavender and ylang ylang. Unicorn Horn costs £4.50 and can be used for several baths.
This bath bomb is new for 2018. It’s one of the older style bath bombs which dissolve quickly. Filled with rose and lemon oils, Love Boat has a sweet scent and leaves skin feeling moisturised. At £4.25 I Love Boat is over priced and so not a bath bomb I would repurchase.
Titsy Tosty is a floral scented bath bomb, filled with rose petals. The perfect Valentine’s treat for yourself or a loved one. Titsy Tosty has been redesigned slightly but is a returning product from past years. And one of my favourite products from the launch. Titsy Tosty costs £3.50 and whilst that does feel expensive for a one use product, the rose petals and novelty factor make this a cute gift or treat.
Another returning favourite, Rose Bombshell is available this year in both normal size and giant. Rose Bombshell is a bath bomb with a strong rose scent, filled with yellow rose petals. Whilst I like this product, it’s priced at £4.50 which is too expensive for a one use bath bomb in my opinion. But as with Titsy Tosty, it would make a nice present.
Heart of Enlightened Expectation
This is described as a bubble bar melt and is another one crammed full of floral oils. The Heart of Enlightened Expectation also has heaps of cocoa butter in, making it very moisturising and perfect for using in a long bath. It’s also priced at £4.50 but can be used more than once.
Whole Lotta Love
Whole Lotta Love looks adorable and contains two butters. It’s full of lustre so creates silky, pink bath water which smells incredible. Whole Lotta Love costs £4.57 and whilst it is a bubbleroon and reusable, I found it didn’t go as far as other bubble bars.
I enjoyed this collection, what’s not to like? Lashings of luxurious feelings oils and butters. And floral fragrances galore. These bubble bars will keep me going throughout February and I may even pick up a few Unicorn Horns before they disappear from shops.
