IT’S REALLY NO SURPRISE that Lush has managed to make yet another range of bath and body products that smell amazing and have you wanting to hop right in the bath as soon as you’ve got your hands on them. And their Valentine’s Day collection is no exception–everything smells like heaven and looks like it’s straight out of a Prada Candy ad.
The standout product in the line is in no doubt the shower gel, Prince Charming, which literally smells so good that I’d probably choose it over an actual Prince Charming. The marshmallow and vanilla scents take me back to the coveted lip glosses I owned as a third grader, but the pomegranate keeps it sophisticated and fresh.
The Kiss is your go-to balm pre-makeout–tastes like oranges, makes lips supple, has the shine, but not the tackiness of a lipgloss, and leaves a bubblegum pink stain. The texture is also really light and not goopy, so it’s rather pleasant to apply and goes on thin.
While I still don’t entirely get the point of bath bombs, I can’t deny that the small explosion of vibrant pigments and water ‘decor’ brings out my inner pyromanic and, ya, it’s fun to watch. The Love Locket is like huge. Which had me super excited to see what this one would do when I dunked it into the hot bath. Sadly, with a little research, it’s actually good for three baths–which yes, means no crazy huge bath bomb extravaganza, but indeed, more colourful baths. Supposedly some spectacular surprise emerges from the yellow core, which I have not yet got to witness (hopefully it is a coupon for said Prince Charming). Will keep you updated on my bathing.
Update: Wasted the entire bath bomb in one go (hence lack of Love Locket in picture), however this one’s beautiful–little confetti hearts and rose-coloured water, also super moisturizing. The locket turned into three big hearts then fizzed away WHICH I’m assuming is the big surprise. Sorry for spoiling.
And to make your extravagant bath spectacle even more festive, the Neon Love soap is lovely. The fragrance is a bit more elegant than those of the rest of the line, but the bar is equally girly. The range, of course, is limited edition, so get pampering ASAP before V-Day rolls around–the sheer use of these products is the extent of my celebrations for the holiday, and I’m pretty content with that.
