Lush has come out with a range of bath bombs, bubble bars, gift packs, knot wraps, lip products and more for this year’s Valentine’s Day collection. I initially had my eyes on the Tender is the Night naked shower cream, as well as the Tunnel of Love Soap. Upon discovering these two items came in a set with the Valentine’s Day lip scrub, as well as a hand cream scrub, I thought it was worth getting as a set.
While in Japan, I picked up the Candy Mountain Bubble Bar from Lush Cosmetics, to treat myself to a relaxing bubble bath after two exciting days in Disneyland. Since we don’t have a bathtub at home, every chance I get to have a bath, I run to Lush to pick up something new to try!
I discovered this little bottle of skin-loving goodness when at the Brisbane Mecca Maxima Grand (re)Opening. I’ve used almost a third of the bottle in just over a month, so that’s a good indication of how this review is going to go!
Don’t think I’ve used up so much of a skincare product so fast!
Mario Badescu is a cruelty-free skincare brand that has pricing close to drugstore products, but performs as well, if not better than high end items! I selected the smaller sized bottle (118mL) and paid only $9 AUD, which is really cheap for what you get. They also have a 236mL size for $17, which I’ll be purchasing next time.
The most important ‘must-have’: cruelty free status
It smells of rosewater and feels beautiful against the skin. I love using this as an all-over mist throughout the day, and I definitely feel like it boost my skin’s appearance. I’ve also noticed less breakouts while using this product.
If you love good, easy, cruelty-free skincare, I highly recommend trying this. It can be used to set makeup, soothe or give skin a quick boost. You can spray it on your face, hair or body, making it the perfect all-rounder skincare product.
As you may be able to tell from the title of this blog, I added one of the prettiest shower jellies to my stocking this year!
Probably the most popular of all Lush’s holiday releases, the Snow Fairy range is back for Christmas 2017. Snow Fairy’s signature scent comes in the form of a Jelly Bomb, Body Conditioner, Reusable Bubble Bar, Sparkle Jar, Naked Shower Gel, Naked Body Conditioner, Cold Pressed Soap, Fun, and the one I picked up, the Shower Gel.
After trying and loving the Tarte Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches, I decided I wanted to try more of these cooling gel pads. I picked up these pretty little patches at the Mecca Maxima Brisbane Opening, and honestly can’t see myself repurchasing the Tarte ones again now that I’ve found these (sorry Tarte)!
I haven’t tried Tarte’s makeup yet, but their skincare range really caught my attention. Maybe it was partly to do with the gorgeous packaging, and the little travel bundles they offer (other brands, please take note). I picked up the hydration vacation bundle, particularly to try the mist and under eye patches. Read on to hear my thoughts on each product, as well as the bundle as a whole.
