Last Minute Valentine's Day?

Hey, did you know that Valentine's Day is in two days? it's on Wednesday. Did you forget too? Oops... Don't stress, I got your back with some last minute Valentine's Gifts courtesy of Lush.

If Valentine’s isn’t the time for getting Naked then when is? We all know you bare all to bathe, but did you know that almost the entire LUSH 2018 Valentine’s range is packaging free? Yes, that means that they don't have any bottles or plastic containers. It is all completely packaging free.

So what are some of my top picks from the Lush Valentine's Day range? Everything...Jks, let me share a couple of favourites!

Love Boat (NEW!) // $6.95

Whether you're testing the waters of a new relation-ship, or it's a bit rocky, why not push the boat out with a trip on the Love Boat? With a cargo of bright organic sweet orange and Sicilian lemon oils, this bath bomb is about to set sail and it's all aboard! Place into hot water for a bath that really floats your boat. As it chugs around, let the zesty and uplifting scent take you down the river for the ride of your life.

Now I don't actually have this one in my collection, but it smells amazing and looks so cute! I am hoping that if I put it in here maybe Dave will read this and get me one for Valentine's Day....It's worth a shot anyway!

Tisty Tosty* (NEW FORMULA) // $6.95

"Tisty-tosty, tell me true, who shall I be married to?" If you dream of love stories with marvel, intrigue and the occasional dragon, drop this captivating blend of woody orris root powder and restorative rose absolute into the water. Seven rosebuds burst from the spellbinding pink heart as you breathe in Sicilian lemon oil, geranium and sensual jasmine. You're entranced into a mystical world full of dusty pink love potions and possibilities... Make a wish!

One of the sweetest bath bombs of the collection. If you're after a gorgeous pink bath that smells of roses then this is what you need. Rosebuds burst from the bath bomb as it dissolves into the water. It has Sicilian lemon oil to leave you feeling refreshed as well.

Giant Rose Bombshell (NEW!) // $24.95

We all love the dramatics of a big bombshell! Hold your bath in anticipation, as red rose petals burst through a sweet haze of geranium and sicilian lemon oils.

Now the Rose Bombshell isn't a new bath bomb, but what they have released this year is a GIANT Rose Bombshell. Yes, you heard me correctly, A BIG BOMBSHELL! You know when you see all those massive Youtubers receiving giant bath bombs? Well now you can have your own. If that doesn't sound amazing, then I don't know how to please you...


Don't go breakin' my heart, crumble and melt it instead. With ylang ylang and bergamot oils to brighten moods, treat someone (or yourself) to something extra special. Whether you're expecting a proposal, a romantic evening or even just some peace and quiet, start it off with a hot bubble bath that softens skin with Fair Trade organic cocoa butter. Heady geranium, jasmine and rose create a floral fantasy in the bath that soothes and calms allowing you to step out with confidence.

I love Lush's bath melts. They are the perfect way to have both a relaxing bath and help to rehydrate dry skin. The Heart of Enlightened Expectation not only looks amazing but also smells so refreshing, the perfect summer scent I think. Plus I love that you can get more then one bath out of these, I usually get at least two, sometimes three.

Unicorn Horn* // $8.95

Unicorns are probably real. But, even if they're not (don't worry they definitely are) you won't mind! Relaxing lavender oil meets mood-brightening neroli in this lustre-filled bar. Neroli oil increases serotonin levels in the brain which makes us feel contented and cheery, so you can ponder the existence of magical creatures while building a fairytale landscape of feel-good, fragrant bubbles.

It wouldn't be a Lush Valentine's Day without the Unicorn Horn. This is a cult favourite and one that Lush has released this the past couple of years. It's deliciously sweet aroma and slight shimmer makes it such a fun bubble bar. Everything I imagine when I think of fairytales!

Melt My Heart Massage Bar* (NEW!) // $10.95
Let the alluring scent of this massage bar mystify and enchant your senses. As you drift into a herby garden, grounding cypress oil and uplifting orange flower absolute entice the one you love. Be beguiled by the sweet softness of Fair Trade organic cocoa butter as it glides over skin and dried rose petals set a sensual tone for your evening, morning, or whenever takes your fancy. Relax, unwind and let the violet leaf absolute and olibanum do all the work!

If Valentine's Day isn't the perfect excuse to get a massage, when is?! If you haven't tried Lush's Massage Bars before, YOU NEED TO! Whether you use them for a massage, or just as a solid moisturiser, they are incredible. They contain Organic Cocoa Butter which glides over the skin and leaves your skin feeling extremely hydrated and soft. It is a hydration that lasts too!! 
Tender Is The Night* (NEW!) //$14.95

Looking for that lovestruck glow? Fall head over heels for this sultry shower cream. Grab the one you love the most, bare all and dare to go naked this Valentine's Day! Ditching the plastic has never felt so good. Allow yourself to be seduced by jasmine flower infusion and heady ylang ylang, whilst your skin is softened by sensationally rich murumuru and Fair Trade shea butters... Remember, sharing showers saves water, so you can afford to take your time and give each other a good once over while you're in there!

 This is actually my first naked shower cream and I'm very excited! I just love how these look (like the actually bottles, but without any packaging). I also love the shower creams because they have shea butter which means extra hydration (seeing the theme with me?) This smells AMAZING! Floral, but sweet and I cannot wait to lather myself up in this! 

The Kiss Lip Scrub* // $9.95

Giving some sugar? Make sure you get some in return. This smoothing blend of fine sea salt, caster sugar and Fair Trade cocoa butter will buff and soften the skin and leave a delicious taste on the lips. A little almond and mandarin oil sweetens, and the edible hearts? They're just for your enjoyment. Savour it all to yourself or share with your valentine. 

This is another cult favourite that comes out each year. It is a super sweet, refreshing lip scrub that has the most adorable little hearts in it. If you're going to take that leap and kiss your Valentine, then make sure you scrub your lips with this before you do! They will leave them feeling so soft and kissable! 
So those are just a few of my favourites from the Valentine's Day collection, but let's be honest - you can't go anything from this collection. Each year Lush just get's better and better. Now I need to go buy myself some... xx
