Mother’s Day and Easter limited edition ranges have landed at Lush and I’m here to give you the lowdown on what’s in store/online and what you need to pick up.
From floral scents to bright zesty soaps, the new spring ranges will definitely perk you up – just in time for the sun to make an appearance and daffodils to bloom.
A few favourites have returned, Golden Egg – the bath bomb almost guaranteed to turn you into a glitterball, and also pretty useful if you’ve forgotten your highlighter as a slight shimmer of that on your cheekbones will certainly catch some eyes. Bunch O’ Carrots is back, offering you multiple bath with a swish of these sweet scented bubble bars. Which Came First? is back with the same zesty grapefruit and lemon scent but with two different egg shaped designs to choose from.
New this Easter is Flopsy – following suit from the Santa Claus beard face wash jelly released for Christmas, this face wash is instead in the shape of a rabbit. Giving off some serious Donnie Darko vibes, I had to pick it up and the carrot scent (the same as that of the Snowman shower jelly) suits the bunny shape, though I detect undertones of blackcurrant too. Continuing with the carrot trend, Wash Behind Your Ears is a bright orange shower gel that’s guaranteed to make shower time more fun, with carrot, neroli and rose it smells like a perfect spring day. Chick N Mix is a blend of bergamot and tonka with a little bunny shaped surprise in the middle. This bath bomb will give you three blissful baths and looks cute on display too, win win!
Leaning more towards the Mother’s Day side of the range, Yummy Mummy has returned (though admittedly, my boyfriend actually used this and commented on how nice it smells – just goes to show they will use your smellies in the shower, even if they say they’re ‘too girly’) Ladybird bubble bar has returned with the same floral scent, and a hint of peppermint. With a blend of lemon and rose, Mum and Ups A Daisy bath bombs are a great treat for that special lady.
Rose Bombshell (which has stuck around following Valentine’s) is the epitome of a floral bath bomb, it’s pink, looks like roses and smells amazing. Just wait for the rose petals too, it’s a real treat. Mother Earth, only available online or from the Oxford Street store is in serious demand; this supersized bath bomb is packed with uplifting zesty oils to give the ultimate pamper!
Baa Bar is a cute new addition to this year’s range and with a bergamot, jasmine and rose scent, the bubble bar is bound to be popular. You won’t need to count sheep after relaxing in the tub with this.
If you’re looking for an alternative to Yummy Mummy, or Wash Behind Your Ears, try Pink Custard. This bright pink shower jelly is a blend of neroli, jasmine, lavender and tonka absolute and I really hope it stays as a permanent product. After Sweetie Pie shower jelly was discontinued, we need another sweet alternative!
Elsie The Giraffe (You’re Having a Bath) and Scrubbie are two I really want to pick up, mainly because they look really cute and smell great and I’m drawn towards them every time I’m in Lush. It’s a sign, I know.
