Valentine's Day Lush Products.

It's been a little while since I last posted, not as often as I would like to have posted. But, I have been planning posts for what to do, so hopefully this will pick up soon. All shall be revealed in the next couple of posts (if the four of you little followers are reading!).

As I'm still quite new to Lush products and I'm really getting into them now, I had to order some limited edition Valentine's Day products. I done this online as I wasn't going to get time to go in store and grab some before the end of the month, so I ensured I got some! Almost every blogger I follow has mentioned or posted about these this year, and I can see why. They're definitely a good range if you like pinks, reds and glittery stuff! Here's what I grabbed.

If you're a Lush lover, you'll already know what the products are. If not, here's the list and a brief summary (click on the name to go to the Lush website and read more);

1 - Prince Charming shower gel - hopefully the picture is clear enough for you to be able to read what's on the label. This pink shower gel contains marshmallow root, pomegranate juice and vanilla, which makes for an interesting smell. I thought it would smell sweet and quite fruity due to the pomegranate, but I can't really smell it all that much. It definitely smells sweet, but I think the vanilla slightly counteracts the fruitiness of the fragrance. It looks like it has the slightest shimmer to the gel, which is nice and it does smell quite nice. I brought it in the 100ml bottle just in case I didn't like it, and this cost £4.75. Quite a lot for such a small product, but you get the product that you pay for and I can't complain at all about the ethics of Lush, so I'm happy paying this.

2 - Cupid's Love soap - I thought this was adorable because of the white heart detail inside the soap, which is what sold it for me. Again, I brought it because it was said to have a fruity fragrance, but I don't feel this is the case. I'm not very fond of the scent of this if I'm entirely honest. It contains bergamot, rosewood, figs, passion fruit and soya yoghurt, so I thought the smells was going to be slightly creamy, fruity and sweet. I guess it is, it's not entirely bad, but I just don't like the smell of the figs. They really stand out for me. I think something like strawberry or raspberry would have been better to use for this and for the holiday that it relates to. Regardless, I'll use it. I just probably wouldn't buy it again. I brought this in a 100g chunk for £4.25.

3 - Unicorn Horn bubble bar - If anyone can resist buying this, then I bow down to you and demand lessons on self-restraint. How could you not want to buy this?! The name itself makes me want to buy it, let alone how it looks, how it smells, or what it does! It looks magical. This is the infamous unicorn horn, and yes, I have been putting it to my head to pretend to be a unicorn. #theydoexist. It contains lavender and neroli, but I have no idea what neroli smells like or what it does. To me, this smells exactly like the Dragon's Egg bath bomb, which is my absolute favourite product, so this is a total winner to me. It looks gorgeous and colourful, and it was £3.25!

4 - Lonely Hearts bubble bar - I brought this as it was a toss up between this and their Heart Throb bubble bar... But this one had glitter, so I went for this one as it looked more exciting. It contains lemongrass, ylang-ylang, bergamot and jasmine, so it smells pretty floral and nice. Almost a powdery scent that you'd expect on a talcum powder. It's not to strong and it should colour the bath red and leave some shimmer in the bath, without making it look like I'm bathing in solid glitter. I look forwards to using this and based on the smell and look alone, I would buy this again next year if they brought it out again. This one was £3.50.

Have you tried any of the Valentine's Day products from Lush yet? Let me know in the comments below!
