Lush Subscription Box – May 2020

Like most other hardcore-Lush fans, since the dissolving of the kitchen, I have sorely missed my fix of exclusives, surprises and fan-favourite drops. Plus I’ve had a lot more money to spend because it hasn’t all gone on bath products.  

When Lush announced it would be releasing a brand new subscription box through the kitchen – I was shocked yet completely over the moon. As someone who loves a good subscription box and Lush – the merging of two was like a dream come true. Naturally moments after the site was opened for subs I had hopped on there and filled out my details without a second thought. Today I thought I’d share my first box with you, what I got and a little bit about how it all works!

The Big Comforter Lush Bubble Bar Review

Every now and then Lush will mess with my mind and release one of its products in super-size proportions. We’ve had the giant rose bombshell, the sizeable Mother Earth bath bomb and lavender giant bombshell to name but a few.

When these products drop, I almost always want them because I’m a complete sucker for novelty – anything over-sized or miniature and I must have it. Things have been a little quiet on the novelty up-scaling side of things as of late though. Until what I would consider to be my holy grail of giant Lush products was released – the Big Comforter bar!  (more…)

Lush Bubble Bar Haul 2020 (New!)

Much to my absolute delight and relief (my bath bomb stash was seriously dwindling!) Lush recently re-opened its online doors. With the re-opening came a huge wave of newness – all in the form of fantastic bubble bars! Bubble bars are some of my favourite products from Lush so as you can imagine, I was very excited to see all of the new designs.

Obviously I couldn’t grab one of everything (but will definitely be going back for more next payday) so instead opted for a good selection of things I thought I might enjoy. As always I picked on design rather than scent – because if I pick solely on scent I would be browsing the ingredients list for far too long and decision making would become a chore! I’m extremely happy with everything I managed to snag so thought I’d share my little haul with you today!

Lush Cosmetics Easter Haul 2020

It’s been a weird old time lately and I feel a bit strange blogging about bath bombs given the current climate. That said, I purchased this years Lush Easter range several weeks back and they’ve been languishing in the Lush box waiting for their close-ups. Blogging has always been something that has kept me busy and motivated and now in a time where I need those things more than ever, I turn to it again.

Today I will be sharing my thoughts on this years Easter range. Please read on if you’re feeling up to it!

Lush Valentines Haul 2020

If you have been following PLF for awhile, you’ll know that alongside Halloween, the Lush Valentines range is one of my most anticipated. All of the cutesy heart designs, the sugary-sweet scents and of course the Unicorn Horns make for a seriously exciting collection. Today I thought I’d share my 2020 haul with you ahead of the big day!

Huge Lush Cosmetics Boxing Day Haul 2019

It has been a bit quiet on the blog this past festive season. Usually in the run up to the big day I’d have posted a big Lush Christmas haul and review – however this year I didn’t try a single new product! Instead I exercised some willpower (read: I had to spend my money on Christmas presents for other people!) Instead I did something that screams logic (which is a pretty new concept for me, let’s be honest) and I waited for the Boxing Day sales to grab some half-priced bargains! Today I thought I’d share that haul with you, alongside a few other bits I was kindly gifted for Christmas. As the season has already passed and many of these products are no longer on the shelves, I will not be including prices or reviewing the sets/products as such- just giving a general overview and my thoughts.  Disclaimers done, let’s get in to it!

Five Face Masks For Autumn

On cold Autumn evenings there’s nothing nicer than a pamper session with face masks – and let’s be honest, it’s needed with the sudden change in weather wreaking havoc on the skin.

For today’s Blogtober I thought I would share five of my favourite face masks this Autumn. All of these are from Superdrug and will set you back a very reasonable 99p or you can grab them on a 3 for 2 offer.

Lush Party Exclusives Mini Haul

Back in the Summer Lush released some brand-new party exclusive products; these were available for a limited time online for a tester period before being made store exclusive and only available if you booked a party.

Seeing how cute the designs were I was keen to try the products ASAP and put in a little online order with the intention of blogging about them. However, me being me I let time pass me by and completely forgot. For today’s Blogtober I thought I’d finally share a little haul and review with you – if you would like to try these products for yourself you can buy them exclusively when you book a party with Lush!

Huge Lush Cosmetics Christmas/Boxing Day Haul 2018

If you know me you’ll know I spend all year eagerly anticipating the one sale that Lush holds each and every Boxing day. It has become a tradition of sorts now for my family and I to get up super early, catch the bus to Lakeside and queue for about an hour or so just so I can get my hands on all the amazing reduced Lush. Maybe it sounds a bit sad, but when Lush only hold one sale a year it makes sense for me to be there for it and save some cash in the process. My brother and I even talked tactics over the cold tea on Christmas day this year – that’s how big of an event it is for me! This year I had a list of wants and, although I didn’t quite get everything on that list I think I did rather well! Today I thought I’d share my Boxing day scores as well as some of the Lush I was gifted this year!

Lush Cosmetics Christmas 2018 Haul Part One

Whilst most of us are still firmly in the Autumn mindset, planning for the spooky-season ahead and all the fun Halloween parties and events we’ll be attending, Lush is, as always, thinking ahead to Christmas. The full Christmas 2018 range dropped just a week or so after the Halloween range which I must admit does feel a little early!

The range this year is absolutely huge with loads of new and innovative products just crying out to be added to Christmas wish-lists. Despite all the newness I was really sad to see my old favourite, Magic of Christmas bubble bar wand knocked off the line-up. At this point in time I’ve tried quite a few of the new products but as the range is so extensive there’s still so many more baths to be had!

Here’s what I’ve picked up so far…

Bath And Body Works Fall 2018 Haul (UK)

As a self-confessed bath bomb addict and bubble-bath dweller, I’m always on the look out for new bath-time treats. Living in the UK I’m lucky enough to have access to my all-time favourite store – Lush. Lush has amazing products and for that reason all of my bath bombs, shower gels, scrubs and shampoos come almost exclusively from there and I feel quite content with that. But there’s one store I have always desperately wanted to buy and try products from, and it’s one we definitely don’t have here in the UK – Bath and Body Works.

Up until very recently I have only been able to browse the Bath and Body Works website longingly, adding products to a basket I can never check out with before exiting the site and buying a consolation bath bomb from Lush. That was until a fellow blogger on Instagram pointed me in the direction of a very special Facebook group…
