LUSH HAUL AND REVIEW | LOVE LETTUCE MASK OF MAGNAMINTY FRENCH KISS LAVENDER BUBBLE BAR AND NEVER MIND THE BALLISTICS BATH BOMB


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. 

What Lush products do you love?

Love

  1. Mask of Magnamity is simply one of their best product. I haven't tried it yet since I still have dozens of other face mask, but I'd pick them up next once I run out of a tube.

  4. I actually haven't tried any Lush products! I am so sensitive to scent and find it hard to shop in their stores - everything is just so overwhelming! I have heard such great things about their bath bombs and face masks, though.

  5. Lovely haul! I love Lush. You must try The Comforter (either in shower gel or bubble bar form) - it's sooo good! I'm definitely going to purchase the Mask of Magnaminty once I'm over and done with my spending ban!

  8. Lush is so popular and I must be the only one that hasn't been in a Lush store nor tried their products. Hopefully soon when I am travelling, I have so many products on my list :)

  9. Love that mask too. Glad to hear your thoughts on the others. I think I'll skip them. Tbh, I usually make my own bubble bars at home! I like maximum bubbles too! ;)

  11. I haven't actually tried out any Lush products, at least recently! The Mask of Magnaminty sounds like a really great product, and is one I seem to hear a lot of positive things about. I'll have to look into the other mask you got, too, it seems like a good option!

    1. They are both great, the Love Lettuce Mask is a little pricey I must say and it has an expiration date too xxx

  12. I find the bubble bars that come in the sticks much better value and longer lasting! The mask sounds lovely!

  14. Even though many love it I am not the biggest fan of the Mask of Magnaminty. My favorite product by far is The Comforter.

  15. Ooh, I haven't tried the Mask of Magnaminty! Honestly I don't go to LUSH very often but I always hear wonderful things about them. Since I don't have a bathtub there's no reason for bath bombs or the like, although I am going to get the toothy tabs next time. I heard they're great for travelling, which I'll be doing soon.

  19. I love Lush, I mean who doesn't!! I do have to say, I'm on the hunt for the Mask of Magnanimity because it's so raved about but everytime I pop into store or look online, it seems to be sold out. I'll give it a google once again! Have a lovely week :)
