Ever felt like the only way you could get through the day is to roll around in coffee? Maybe that’s just me. But if you are in my boat then I want to point you in the direction of this little black pot of happiness – Lush Cup O’ Coffee!
With the winter months on the horizon my skin starts to dry out a treat so I keep my skin as scrubbed up as possible. Lush bill this as a body and face mask but I’ve only used it as the latter. I will say now that this is definitely a more coarse scrub so if you don’t like that type of thing this might not be for you. It’s got tiny piece of ground coffee in it that buff the skin fantastically.
Lush’s Metamorphosis bath bomb seems like an intriguing idea. Ever since its release I have wanted one and Sai gifted me one not too long ago. I have been waiting forthe perfect moment to test it out. I finally took the plunge after a pretty rubbish week at work.
Wow Factor? Hmmm
Filled with cinnamon leaf and black pepper oil the idea of a nice warming bath to soak my muscles was really appealing. But more than anything I wanted to see the colour burst from this unassuming grey bulk. I popped the bomb into the bath and was severely disappointed. It started to fizz away and whilst I was expecting bright vibrant colours to appear I ended up with lacklustre tendrils of pink and yellow coming from the grey orb. Not only that but by the time it had dissolved the bath was left a murky brick red colour. I guess I expected something a little more vibrant but maybe my expectations were too high. Below is the most colourful picture I could get.
As Lush Swansea celebrated 10 years they announced that they would be moving to a bigger premises. Great news! A bigger shop means more products and more time to browse around, right? I’ve wandered past Oxford Street and wondered when they would be opening up so was chuffed to find an invite for an opening night event in my inbox.
We walked past the old shop on the night and it was a little sad to see the window boarded up and directing people to the new place. However, on seeing the new shop all sadness was lost. The glassy exterior was piled with products and we were welcomed into the shop with drinks and a Lush lanyard.
The first thing I noticed was how homely the shop felt and just how much bigger it was. The walls were packed with gift boxes and products. The old shop used to feel a bit cluttered, everything was held so close together but here it was easy to differentiate the hair section from mouth care and such. They also now have a stunning display of their bath bombs right in the centre of the room which will not help my wallet but brightens up the whole place!
On a recent trip to Lush I pick up their Intergalactic bath bomb. At £4.25 it’s one of the more expensive bath bombs but it’s a pretty hefty chunk! This is one that has always caught my eye thanks to its bulk of bright blue interrupted with vibrant pink and yellow. Being a lover of Lush and space I caved and bought it.
Packed with peppermint and grapefruit oil as well as vetivert and cedarwood oils, Intergalactic should really be out of this world. I love anything with grapefruit oil as I find it really does relax me so I couldn’t wait to actually try this out.
I ran a hot bath and said goodbye to the beauty before dropping it into the tub. When I think of space I think of swirling colours and stars and this is exactly what Intergalac
tic does. The base colour of the water becomes a deep blue. The bath bomb itself fizzes along releasing tendrils of pink and yellow. It appears much more vigorous compared to some of the others I have tried and this may be due to the popping candy. The swirls of colour look amazing but they won’t last after the entire bath bomb has dissolved.
I hadn’t realised until I stepped into the water that I wasn’t just left with a dark bath, reminiscent of a cloudy night sky. Instead there is fine glitter dispersed throughout the water. It smelled rather minty which I like. I found the glitter stuck to my skin even after showering off. The glitter in this bath bomb is both amazing and a pain. Once I drained the bath I was left with a mass of lustre at the bottom and had to give it a good wash to make sure everything was gone. But if you don’t mind a bit of mess then that shouldn’t really put you off.
Have you tried the Lush Intergalactic bath bomb?
