The day before Valentine’s, are you ready to indulge? I received some Lush V-Day goodies to test out, and they definitely put me and Squirt in a good mood
The Neon Love soap (LE) definitely catches our attention with the pink/ white heart pattern on the red background.
The soap has passion fruit juice to cleanse and soya yogurt to nourish, both of which I haven’t experience in a soap before. As with other Lush soaps I tried, this one is not drying and gets the job done.
Contributing to the scent are citrusy bergamot, rosewood and spicy cinnamon leaf oil, so this is one gently spicy soap, invigorating!
Ingredients: Water, Propylene Glycol, Rapeseed Oil, Coconut Oil (Brassica napus; Cocos nucifera), Fresh Passion Fruit (Passiflora edulis), Cornflour (Zea mays), Sodium Stearate, Fresh Figs (Ficus carica), Fragrance, Cinnamon Leaf Oil (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Rosewood Oil (Aniba rosaeodora), Bergamot Oil (Citrus Aurantium bergamia), etc.
Good for hand and body, the soap retails $6.95 for 100g.
I finally has a Prince Charming, a (LE) shower gel that is lol.
Keeping with the citrus trend, this product has fresh pomegranate juice and grapefruit oil to cleanse; Fair Trade vanilla pod infusion, marshmallow root and almond oil to soften.
I also used the shower gel as a bubble bath, as I enjoy the scent quite a bit (pomegranate and grapefruit together is a fun scent), just have to swirl the gel around a bit to help it dissolve.
Ingredients: Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, Lauryl Betaine, Grapefruit Oil (Citrus paradisi), Sandalwood Oil (Santalum austro-caledonicum vieill and Fusanus spicatus), Geranium Oil (Pelargonium graveolens), Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Titanium Dioxide , etc.
Prince Charming is yours for $9.95 (100ml), $19.95 (250ml) or $29.95 (500ml).
Another cute factor – the Love Locket bath bomb (LE).
This heart is huge (see it next to a regular bath bomb for size comparison), good for at least 3 baths – two with each half of the pink heart and one with the yellow center.
The surprises: the paper hearts embedded in the pink layer that will float to the water surface, making a scene, and the red seaweed hearts inside the center layer. Hearts overload, I have a lot of fun with this bath bomb!
The scent is from a blend of vanilla, jasmine and neroli essential oils, a bit sweet and calming.
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Fragrance, Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum), Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla Planifolia), Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Eugenol, Geraniol, Methyl Ionone, Linalool, Limonene, D&C Red No. 33, D&C Red No. 27, Pink Heart Confetti, Red Edible Hearts (Hydroxy propyl methyl cellulose (HPMC), etc.
This bath bomb is $10.95 for 269g (vs. $4.95 – $6.95 for a regular bath bomb of 180 – 200g).
Finally, rub some of the Tender is the Night massage bar on your skin before you leave the house or before bed, and your day ends in a very good note.
The bar contains shea and murumuru butter that melt easily onto skin for a smooth, tender massage. It erases all the dry spots on my arms and legs, gives off a scent (vanilla, jasmine and ylang ylang) that lasts for hours.
I am addicted to using it every day now! It is so easy to use and store (the tin is available at Lush too, $3.95).
Ingredients: Murumuru Butter (Astrocaryum murumuru), Organic Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Fragrance, Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla Planifolia), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Titanium Dioxide, Cornflour (Zea mays), Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, etc.
The good thing is this massage bar is available all year round, $11.95 for 60g.
