Review: Lush - Valentine Items

I'm anti-valentines this year.
Well, every year it's just commercialised crap, why should there be a special day where your partner has to spend money on you & make you realise how much you love them. It should be like that everyday to be honest.
Lush brought out some Limited Edition items this year, both of which i knew i would love.



The first is the
Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar

This smells amazing. The red is yummy yummy yummy scented (strawberries & cream) & the white is vanillary scented. Peeerfect combination in my opinion.
It's also super cute & made my bath water a pretty pale pink, the bubbles were also really creamy.
Why do lush do this to me? seriously? Why do they bring out the most amazing products for a limited amount of time. *sulk*

RRP: £2.25

Next is the
Ex Factor Bath Ballistic

Essentially, this is Mr Butterball & the Butterball bath ballistic in the form of a blue gingerbread man with a little pink heart & my preferred choice over the others. He's the cutest & my bath water has never looked so pretty. I noticed when he was fizzing away there was colouring in his little legs, once they had dissolved the water was a gorgeous deep blue.
Add in the moisturising properties of the butterball & the gorgeous vanillary scent & you're garanteed an amazing bath.
PLEASE STOP DOING THIS TO ME LUSH. Make this little blue fella permanent & at such a cheap price for so many green ticks it's an absolute must have.

RRP: £1.95

  1. Wow that Ex Factor is amazingly priced! I got a Magic Mushroom and a Love Soap which I haven't tried yet. But I think I might need to soon. But I'm clinging on to the last piece of my Candy Cane Bubble Bar so if it's anything like that then I will probably cry. :( Damn Lush!

  5. I absolutely Lurrrve your blog design and layout etc. I was just wondering how you were able to change the font of your blog post titles to your preferred font rather than just one of those boring choices that they give you (ariel etc) please tell me it would be so useful xxxxxxxxxx

  24. oh yum! your pictures make them both look so scrummy. i have asked my man very sweetly for the mushrooms for valentines day but the chances of him navigating anywhere past the xbox is second to none! i am going to have to purchase both of these myself *grrr*

    adore your blog, and your parents made an excellent name choice ;)!!
