Have a Lush Easter

Another month, another Lush haul! I bought so many bath time goodies the last time I visited my local store, and I'm sure you're all aware that they do some fabulous seasonal collections. I didn't want to go too crazy, because these products do have use-by dates and I don't have time to have a bath nine times out of ten. I do love a nice hot bath to relax in, but I just wish I could have more of them!

Lush's Easter collections always bring a bit of sunshine into your day. I mean, just look at how bright and sparkly they are! Deciding on a few spring treats from this year's selection, I'm certainly looking for a Lush Easter break!

This huge bath bomb contains a secret treat, and I do love little surprises. Immaculate Eggception comes in two different colours: yellow or pink. I chose the pink for obvious girly reasons. You crack open the shell to reveal a mini bath bomb - either a chick or a bunny. I think the pink one has the chick and the yellow one has the bunny, but don't quote me on that one! Once all the bits are in the bath, they leave your water a lovely coral colour. Both variations share the same ingredients, and these include grapefruit oil, fair trade vanilla absolute, and lemon oil. All in all it makes for an uplifting, refreshing scent.

After seeing a demonstration of just how many bubbles these carrots make, I just had to pop them in my basket. I've used these bubble bars by swishing the whole bunch under the hot tap and in the bath, but you can also untie them and use each carrot separately. It doesn't matter either way, they last ages! I love the smell of them too - really fresh but difficult to put my finger on. I looked up the product on Lush's website and I was surprised to see that they described the scent as "tropical" and then "blackcurrant". So I'm still a little confused fragrance-wise, but I really like it nonetheless! Bunch of Carrots contain sicilian lemon oil, bergamont oil, and buchu oil (that's your blackcurrant scent derivative!) Carrots in the bath, who'd have thought it?

The Bunny bubble bar was inspired by the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. It's such a cute little creation, I think you'll agree. On the outside it's chalky white but underneath and inside it's lilac. It smells of vanilla and is so easy to crumble into a running bath. It's full of rich oils and butters to leave your skin soft and conditioned after a good old soak in pink bubbles. It also contains blue cornflower petals which adds another dimension to bath time.

Last but not least, the Golden Egg. Even though it is billed as a bath bomb, I would get two uses out of this by cutting it in half and using it as more of a bubble/sparkle bar. As you can see it's very sparkly! It fizzes out slowly compared to other bombs and is actually described as a cross between a bath melt and bomb for a luxurious golden bath. It boasts 22 ingredients, 10 of which are completely natural (the other 12 are safe synthetics), and includes cocoa butter, sweet wild orange oil, bergamont oil, and olive oil. It smells delicious too - a gorgeously sweet honey fragrance that stays with you after submersion. If you don't like a bit of glitter then perhaps steer clear of this one, but you could try other products with similar fragrances like the Honey Bee Bath Bomb, or Honey I Washed The Kids Soap.

I'm always really impressed with Lush. They are incredibly creative and their staff are always so wonderful, friendly and helpful. While nothing beats a chocolate egg, I'm sure a themed bath bomb or bubble bar would be a lovely gift for someone this Easter!

Have you tried any of the Easter collection?

  2. I'm a bit wary of trying the golden egg - does it leave you covered in glitter or is it easily rinsed off? Honeybee bathbomb is my absolute favourite so I really want to try this one too!
    Love this post :)

    1. I asked about this in store because I was a bit worried about the glitter staining my bath tub, and the woman reassured me that they've changed the glitter in their products. There is now no plastic in them so the glitter is easily rinsed off from both bath tubs and your skin. However, when you pick the Golden Egg up you do get it all over your fingers because it's proper covered in the stuff. Long story short, yes it's easily rinsed off, haha! Xx
