LUSH Valentine's Day Collection


Get in the mood for love with this collection of new creations especially for Valentine’s Day!

I think for the first time in a very long time I am more then happy to spend Valentine's Day at home soaking in my bath over a glass of bubbles. Of course I wouldn't be saying this if I did not have a crazy obsession with LUSH and their amazing bath/shower products. 

Thank goodness this collection has come out though as I have been having withdrawals from the LUSH Christmas collection and shed a few tear as I did not get to stock up as well as I wanted to. But I can now go to sleep at night knowing there is another amazing collection being launched by LUSH for Valentine's Day. 

So I will now shut up and introduce you to the amazing products you will see hit the shelves on the 30th January, and I would advise to get in early for those items that tickle your fancy because once they are gone- they are gone!! 

NEW! Love Locket bath bomb ($8.95) ... Unlock pure

The Love Locket was inspired by the kind of heart-shaped locket you wear as a necklace, perhaps with a secret photograph of a loved one inside. Like any love locket, you need to unlock the bath bomb to reveal the secret hidden within. Crack your locket in half, to unveil the hidden heart in the centre.

The outside of the locket is full of paper hearts that will float out onto the surface of the water, while the hidden heart inside is laden with agar hearts to create a spectacular bath time display. Use each half and the inner heart individually (so three baths in total), or throw it all in the bath tub at once for a really decadent bath, enough to get any heart aflutter. The brand new fragrance is made from some of our most luxurious essential oils: Fairtrade vanilla absolute, neroli oil and jasmine absolute are blended to create a sweet, sensual and uplifting indulgent bath time.

If you did not fall in love just reading this description of this little bath bomb then there is something seriously wrong with you. LUSH is well known for their surprise filled bath bombs/ballistics and this is nothing short of a surprise. Who needs rose petals in the water when you can have little love hearts ( I know what I would prefer!!!) 
Not sure I could save this for three different baths thought and would much prefer to lay back and watch the magic take place while I relax and soak in the different colours/scents :-) 

NEW! Neon Love soap ($6.95 per 100g) ... Fresh and fruity

Inspired by 12 Months of Neon Love, a collaboration between artists Victoria Lucas and Richard William Wheater, beginning on Valentine’s Day 2011 and ending on Valentine’s Day 2012. The art featured lyrics from well-known love songs, in huge neon writing!
This huge heart shaped soap, emblazoned with the word ‘Love’, is
scented with a brand new fragrance of bergamot, rosewood and cinnamon leaf oil and packed full of fresh ingredients, such as fresh figs, passion fruit juice and soya yoghurt to nourish and soften the skin. Hiding inside are plenty of little white hearts to ensure every slice looks as beautiful and romantic as it smells.
The rosewood oil used in this soap comes from a project set up with funding from the Sustainable Lush Fund (S-Lush), where 2% of our annual buying spend is invested back into initiatives. With money from S-Lush, we bought the rights to a 6,000 hectare forest concession deep in the Amazon, to stop loggers from further deforestation. Working with local communities, we found the land to be full of rosewood trees and over the past few years we’ve worked with the locals on the ground there to set up a sustainable supply of rosewood oil, with their own distillation machinery to enable them to produce the oil on site. So far we’ve received over 100 kilos of rosewood oil from this source.

AH MA GAWD, how beautiful does this bar look in whole like that- of course your would be paying a mini fortune if you wanted it like that. I like to buy the 100g's and get it cut off, and think it would still look super sweet with the hearts throughout it. I love LUSH's soap and it is the only bar soap I actually use on both the girls and myself. Another one I can't wait to get my nose on. 

NEW! Close To You massage bar ($8.95) ... Melt your

This smooshable massage bar was inspired by the humble jammy dodger. As you peek through the heart shaped hole on top of the bar you can see into the sumptuous white fondant centre.
Made with a luxurious blend of butters and oils, including cupuaçu butter, shea butter and olive oil, this rich bar shares the same delicious vanilla fragrance as in Rock Star soap and Creamy Candy bubble bar. Guaranteed to bring someone special Close to You! (Vegan)

This is something Matt could buy me for after I have had my shower and am all relaxed and ready for… BED (uh-hum dirty minds.) 
I could just imagine how relaxing this could be and I would almost fall asleep instantly, again reading the ingredients I have fallen in love and will HAVE to try this product and get a review up for you :-) 

NEW! Prince Charming shower gel ($8.95 for 100g/ $16.50
for 250g/ $26.50 for 500g) ... Happily ever after

A shower gel made for princesses and for anyone who needs a Prince Charming in their life! This sweet-scented, neon pink shower gel is fit for royalty. Marshmallow root and Fair Trade vanilla pod decoction forms the base, giving a very soothing experience, boosted by nourishing almond oil and cleansing, cooling and astringent fresh pomegranate juice. Prince Charming has a new fragrance of organic sandalwood, geranium and grapefruit essential oils to sweep you off your feet and leave you skin silky soft and smelling lovely. (Vegan)

This baby right here may be the end of my relationship as we know it!! - Haha well not really but I think when I get my little kits on this bad boy I shall be having a little affair with MY prince charming every morning when I jump into the shower :-P Now this could get dangerous. I have read the description and yet to get my nose onto this one, but I am pretty sure that when it does the Snow Fairy may have a MASSIVE contender on its hands. 

NEW! Tender is the Night massage bar ($10.50)
... Soft and sensual

Tender is the Night
returns this year with a new look. Inspired by Blurs song Tender and 1920s author F. Scott Fitzgeralds novel of the same name, this sensual and sexy massage bar has swapped
its soft centre for a solid blend of softening shea butter and murumuru butter, with a larger surface area and pink flower on top. This bar is cocoa butter free and contains an intoxicating blend of jasmine, ylang ylang and Fair Trade vanilla essential oils and absolutes.
Tender is the Night massage bar will be joining the all year round range. (Vegan)
