I know Lush is very popular amongst bloggers and although I have long since been a fan of their Mask of Magnaminty Self-Preserving mask (£6.25) I have had difficulty considering their other products worthwhile. In particular, their bath products. I do adore the shop and the alluring scent that beckons me in whenever I walk past. The staff are always fun, colourful, helpful and patient, very few shops boast such attentive staff. Even when the store is rammed, they are calm and unhurried but still efficient and manage to take the time with individual customers. I was in the shop before Christmas and decided to grab a few things for myself and my family. I bought 2 French Kiss Lavender Bubble Bars as they are supposed to be fragrant, bubbly and incredibly relaxing. One for me and one for my mother. I also grabbed a Never Mind The Ballistics Bath Bomb, a Christmas product, which is supposedly moisturising and in addition to my favourite minty mask I picked up a small tub of Love Lettuce (£6.25) which requires refrigeration unlike the mint mask.
So as you already know the Mask of Magnaminty is a winner, in my opinion, the best mask they offer. It is refreshing and provides the perfect pick me up to all skin types. Perfect for when you return from travelling and mourn the loss of all your favourite skincare products. This will help your skin bounce back to its usual state. Onto the other mask, Love Lettuce, I was pleasantly impressed with this mask. It is slightly grittier and more exfoliating than Mask of Magnaminty because of its time spent in the fridge it is cold on application. It contains seaweed gel and is a great option for those with combination skin like me. It also contains French Lavender which helps balance the skin's sebum production. I have an oily T-zone so love using it there and then the Mask of Magnaminty on my cheeks and chin. Multi-masking is a great way to take care of problem areas.
Finally, the two bath products I picked up. I am not impressed with either. The French Kiss Bubble Bar smelt nice but didn't bubble nearly enough. The only good thing about it is that you can break bits of it off so you get more than one use out of it unlike the bath bomb which you have a maximum of 2 uses. I didn't like the bath bomb, I prefer bubbles to colours and this pink and yellow Never Mind The Ballistics bath bomb that claims to be very moisturising as it is full of oils etc. I still needed to moisturise post-bath and the water turned a bright orange. I will admit seeing the bomb fizz and expel different swirls of colours was nice and relaxing and the scent wasn't unpleasant but all in all I think I will stick to my Radox Bubble Bath. You just can't go wrong.
I hope you enjoyed this post. I would love to hear what your favourite Lush products are. I like the idea of spoiling myself once in a while and grabbing a bath bomb that really is a treat to the senses. I love taking baths so any suggestions you have are welcome. I promise I have an open mind. Thank you for reading, please follow me on Bloglovin' if you aren't already. Take care.
