Tiz the almost/pretty much IS the season to get spoiled and to spoil others and with saying that, I might have happened to have treated myself to a Lush, bath experience.
If you don’t, in fact, know already, I am a religious fake tanner. Shocking truth, I can go half way around the world, lay out in the sun and come back the same colour, pale af. Therefore, bearing that in mind, I have a deep scrub once a week, in the bath and return to my white self, prepped and rid of dead skin cells ready to then apply some tinted, brown mouse onto my skin, luxury. Sounds gross right? I guess it kinda is but being now accustomed to that my skin has probably seen better days if at all, hiding underneath all that tan.
Although I regularly moisturise and in some cases in the week, deeply moisturise, the scrubbing can still become quite tedious. That’s why I wanted to try out some new products and get my scrubbin’ on. Cringe.
I really should have called this a mini, mini… mini haul, I only bought two things but hey, Lush ain’t cheap. However, the things I chose were ideal. A bath bomb is always such a luxurious treat, especially when they’re from Lush. As soon as I get in the bath after the bomb has fizzled out, my skin is immediately smooth and it makes relaxing such and scrubbing such an easy job.
The reason I went for these two products is because I wanted a bath bomb for the reasons above but I also wanted to try a shower cream. The shower creams I tend to get are either in bulk from Costco or some cheap £1 deals in either Superdrug or ASDA, however, this time, I wanted to experience a bit of non-granny, non-cheapness.
My main things I was trying to avoid in Lush was buying any products with glitter and oil in them. I tend to have a routine now where I have a bath (moisturise the night before), scrub and then tan about an hour after getting out the bath. No that’s not ideal, I wouldn’t advise it but being a tanorexic I can’t help myself. Therefore, avoiding oily products is key. If you use an oil based shower or body wash or even a bath oil applying fake tan directly after getting out the bath will no doubt make you achieve streaking. The bath bomb -Luxury Lush Pud is as far as I was notified, didn’t contain any oils. The other reason for not getting any products with glitter in them is simply because I don’t appreciate it. I tried a few of their Christmas products last year and immediately hated the glitter ones, it always ends up pretty messy and when it comes to tanning you want you a fresh and spotless canvas.
The bath bomb was indeed a hoot. The colours were mind blowing and I’d definitely purchase this again before Christmas. The smell was fantastic, very seasonal and the finish it left in the bath was as expected, spot on and pure luxury.
Moving onto the shower cream. I wanted something very nourishing and foamy as I’d be using this with my exfoliating gloves and wanted to feel like although I’m scrubbing the dead skin cells away my skin will still be nourished at the same time, not leaving it dry and dull. As I explained what I wanted to the Lush, lady person, she kept recommending me creams with heavy amounts of oil in them and they smelt incredible and I could understand why she would recommend me these because they seemed great but eventually I ended up going for Yuzu and Cocoa. It smelt (obviously) incredible, like chocolate orange, bliss. Although a lot of the Lush products in the bath and shower range contain essential oils this one didn’t seem to rely on them as the main ingredient so I gave it a go and no problems!
