Easter Lush Haul.

Yet again, I have been roped into buying more Lush products as they recently released their Easter range. Damn it! I'm happy, but my bank balance is getting quite annoyed so I'll probably refrain for a little while after this haul. Some die-hard Lushies will notice that I haven't got some of the more classic products like the Immaculate Eggception bath bombs or the Bunch of Carrots bubble bars... That's because I did have to limit myself to some products, and I'm also quite tight-fisted with money so there was no way I was paying almost £7 for a bath bomb. Nope. No more waffling, here's what I got. You can click on the headings to go directly to the Lush website to read more;

Pot O' Gold Shower Jelly

This shower jelly is £3.50 and as you can see, it lives up to it's name. This is quite a small pot as I got the 100g pot due to not ever having it before and I don't have a store close by to me to go in to, so it's trial and error ordering online. It's quite shimmery and really does look like it belongs to the Easter collection. It has 'orange peel decoction' and pineapple juice in it so I thought it would smell quite fruity, but my nose disagrees. To me - as weird as it sounds - it smells like a cross between liquorice and a Worther's Original sweet. I don't know about you guys, but that's the scent spot on to me. With this, you just take the whole lump of shower jelly out in one go and rub it over your body, then plop it back in the pot. Simple. 

 Golden Egg Bath Bomb Melt.

This product is a bath bomb as well as a bath melt, meaning it's pretty damn special. This means it should colour the water and do fun things to it like a bath bomb, but it should also make your skin really soft like the bath melts do. Two in one, whehey! My egg is looking a little bit scabby and bare because all the glitter is laying on every possible surface in the house, rather than on the egg. I don't know how, but it's just dispersed somehow. Glitter fairies? Anyway, this bomb/melt is £3.75 and should turn the water a yellow-gold colour and very glittery. It smells like a mix between honey, toffee and cocoa, pretty much like it describes on the Lush website.

Hoppity Poppity Bath Bomb.

As your eyes can see (I hope), it's a bath bomb in the shape of a rather surprised rabbit head. I don't know why it looks quite astonished, but whatever the answer is, it makes me feel a little bit guilty about dropping it in hot water. I'll just have to not watch as it's face melts away and mixes with the water I'm going to bathe in... Getting a little deep about a bath bomb. This little fella is £2.50 so it's cheap and cheerful (even though it's face says otherwise) so I couldn't turn it down. I think it just makes the water creamy looking with a hint of pink, but it does contain some popping candy to add that extra oomph to it that people look for in bath bombs. To me it smells quite floral and smells like it has a hint of those purple Parma Violet sweets you get. It smells typically clean like bog standard washing powder you'd get. Weird way of explaining it, but that's what it smells like to me, at least it's a nice and refreshing smell.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow Soap.

I've seen quite a few different Lush accounts over Instagram who have had pink and purple slices of this soap, but I haven't seen anyone else with this colour slice like mine... I'll take that as something special. This soap cost £4.25 for 100g, again I went for the cheapest and smallest size as I've never tried it before and didn't want to be stuck with a massive clump and not like it. Or have the room for it in the bathroom. It contains rose absolute, Sicilian mandarin and neroli oils but again my nose is insisting that it smells like a mint leaf fresh from the garden, mixed with a little bit of lemon and an unknown herb. Clearly my sense of smell is in a league of it's own. I'm not sure if I like the scent, but I'm sure it'll grow on me.

Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb.

I'm really not one for pink things, and in all honesty, I wouldn't have brought this if it wasn't part of the Easter range. I don't know why, but pink really isn't a colour that appeals to me. This bath bomb costs £2.95 so it didn't break the bank and I could justify buying it, even though it is very pink. It has a blue flower detail on one side, and red on the other side which you can see in the very first picture of this post. To me it smells like... Candy floss mixed with lots of floral notes, it has quite a sweet powdery scent to it. I've just read on the website that it smells like candy floss, so my nose has got this one spot-on. Good job snout, good job.

Twilight Bath Bomb.

Clearly this isn't an Easter product, but whilst I was on a little buying spree I thought I'd buy it. I've had my eye on it for a little while but have always resisted buying it, but this time I gave in. I've heard good things about the Twilight bath bomb, and at £3.35 why not. From what I've seen, this bomb turns the water blue and pink and maybe has a little shimmer to the water once it's fizzed away, but I'll definitely let you know (unless you've tried it before, in that case ignore me). I'm not sure about the scent as it smells to me like burnt toffee mixed with maybe a splash of vanilla, but obviously the website doesn't say that. Who'd buy a product with the description "turns your water blue and pink, but beware of the too-hot smell of toffee that's been dribbled with vanilla"? The website says lavender, tonka, and benzoin which all create a 'milky caramel malt drink'. Each to their own senses.

Have you tried any of the above products or are you wanting to?
