Valentine's Day Lush Collection 2015

Valentine's Day Lush Collection 2015
Valentine's Day - you either love it or you hate it... depending on your relationship status. Personally even being a single gal, I love it - especially when it comes to Lush products! I mean, Lush Cosmetics is one of the things that makes Valentine's Day a little more bearable if you're planning on spending it alone (or even if you have a special someone... though squeezing two people in a bathtub can be quite the challenge!). Luckily for me, this year I'm spending the day of love in America with friends - though I'll most likely spend it in a hot tub with a tub of Ben and Jerrys, I'm not even sorry. 

So what have Lush got in store for this February? Well, they have a limited edition shower gel, two bathbombs, two bubble bars, a soaps and a lip scrub! Unfortunately the only product I'm missing is the The Kiss Lip Gloss! Let's have a look at this lovely collection!

Floating Flower Bathbomb - £3.50 // Love Locket Bathbomb - £6.95
Bathbombs. The things that Lush are known best for - and by far my favourite products they make in their magical soapy kitchen! The 'Floating Flower' bathbomb is a new addition and blimey - it's a very powerful (and beautiful) scent of Jasmine. The shape of it just looks super jazzy, and it does what it says on the label, it floats! It's a slow fizzing bathbomb leaving your bath water a very pretty pink. If you enjoy Lush's heavy scents, this is a must-buy product before it leaves the shelves!

Next we have the ol' 'Love Locket' bathbomb. I was looking forward to this returning after falling in love with it last year. What's so good about this one? Well, there is enough to last 3 baths (which is good, as this is probably one of Lush's most expensive bathbombs I've seen them sell!). You crack it open to reveal a smaller heart inside (aw, cute - you little heartbreaker!) - so you can use the middle for one bath, and the two halves for two other baths. BRILLIANT. Granted it's not an all singing / all dancing bathbomb, but it does leave your water pink with some cute little heart confetti's floating about. A comforting floral scent.

Heart Throb Bubbleroon - £3.65 // Cupid's Love - £4.25
Here we have a bubbleroon (ooh la la, that's a satisfying word) and a soap. First, let's talk about the bubbleroon, called 'Heart Throb' - I adore the smell of this, it's the scent of "frangipani" - what's that? I had no idea either, but it's a super pretty ornamental plant. There's something VERY soothing about the smell of it. Now there's not much to say about bubblebars - they make LOTS of bubbles. The only thing I'd WARN you about - if you have blonde/bleached hair, this will dye your hair pink as my friend experienced.

'Cupid's Love', ahh I do enjoy the names of Lush products. This little cute heart shaped soap is a very fruity soap, filled with passionfruit and figs! Yum. (Note: This is usually in a bigger and in a different shape!)

The Kiss Lip Scrub - £5.50 // Prince Charming Shower Gel - £4.75 100g
When I heard you could buy 'PRINCE CHARMING' from Lush of course I ran to Lush as fast as I could... I then realised it was a shower gel and not the real thing. Hey, you can't always get what you want in life but that's okay. This is probably my least favourite product from this Valentine's Day collection, but maybe I could grow to love it. It smells like turkish delight (you know, that rose tasting jelly - which actually I like!) however I don't like smelling of it. I think this shower gel is like marmite, you'll love it or hate it. Let me know in the comments!

Next is a lip scrub, I'm a huge fan of the bubblegum one so I was excited to give this a try! 'The Kiss' lip scrub smells very sweet, and has rainbow sprinkles on top (10 points to Lush for that cute touch).
Now this claims to be bubblegum too (it's nothing like their original bubblegum one though), it does taste nice. The only thing that is slightly off-putting for me is that they included fine sea salt as an ingredient so when you lick it off you just taste salt. I think I'll stick to the delicious 'Bubblegum' lip scrub. Sorry Lush.

Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar - £3.25
Finally, the most fun new edition to the Lush family - the 'Unicorn Horn' bubble bar. I couldn't not buy this, look at it! Definitely something I'd happily use to make magical bubbles in my bubble kingdom. It smells of lavender (not my favourite scent) BUT it's subtle and quite pretty. I'm very excited to relax with this unicorn horn. Hey... I wonder what they do with the unicorns after they've stolen their horns. I kid, Lush Cosmetics is animal cruelty free! Hooray!

So - have YOU tried any of the products from the Valentine's Day collection from Lush? Let me know your thoughts in a comment.

  1. I love Lush and I'm really looking forward to trying stuff from their Valentine's Day range (despite being a single pringle)! Really informative reviews and some lovely photographs as well :') Shame about the Bubbleroon changing hair colours like that - not a problem I'd experience with my brown hair, but it's still weird!
