It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Okay, Christmas is, but Valentines’s is 2nd! Who are we kidding? We love every occassion/holiday because it gives us yet another reason to celebrate something fun! Valentine’s may be for ‘lovers’ par say but even us single ladies (and guys alike) can have some fun for Valentine’s Day. Even if that requires picking up a little something for yourself or for someone special in your life like a family member or close friend.
Chocolates are always a much appreciated Valentines gift but sometimes thinking outside of the usual box is even better. Such as these special soaps and goodies from one of our absolute favourite stores ever, LUSH. Talk about making us happy! Who would’ve thought a piece of soap would have such ability?!
LUSH products are all handmade using the freshest ingredients and are 100% vegetarian (completely safe for your skin and body). LUSH is also a lead supporter in the fight against animal testing. We have been loyal customers for years. So when we walked into the store and seen the Valentines display, we just couldn’t resist. It was true L.O.V.E.
All of LUSH’s Valentine’s products are Limited Edition so be sure to pick them up while you still can!
Cupid’s Love Soap ($6.95 per 100g)
Could the Cupid’s Love Soap be any more perfect for Valentine’s Day? I think not!
The soap is a delicious blend of fruity scents including citrusy bergamot, rosewood and even cinnamon to give it that little spicy somethin’ extra. We looove the look of the soap with the cute white heart in the middle of the bar. Definitely one of the cutest soaps ever.
Fact: Lush’s handmade soaps are all composed of their new vegetable soap base and are completely palm oil-free. Palm oil is a nasty ingredient consisting of animal tallow which is the main ingredient in some of the world’s best-selling soaps!
We were extremely happy to learn that Lush’s soaps are completely safe and healthy for your body and are made with natural ingredients such as rapeseed and coconut oil.
Love Locket Bath Bomb ($11.95)
I will admit I picked out this bath bomb solely based on the appearance. SO CUTE RIGHT? I was even more thrilled to learn that when you crack open the heart in half, there is a mini heart bath bomb inside as well.
The Love Locket Bath Bomb is super nourishing and has a lovely blend of vanilla, jasmine and neroli essential oil which smell divine. It releases a glorious mix of tiny red paper hearts and shiny red agar seaweed hearts when exposed in the water. Though it’s a little more expensive than their regular bath bombs, it is generously sized and can be broken up and used in multiple baths (approx. 3-4).
The Kiss Lip Scrub ($9.95 per 25g)
We have never tried any of Lush’s lip scrubs previously but when we came across the pretty pink packaging and smelled how nummy this one was, we had to try it out. The Kiss Lip Scrub contains caster sugar, sea salt and adorable tiny hearts and sprinkles (oh so cute!). The scrub itself is edible and tastes sweet & fruity. It leaves a really pretty natural-looking pink tint to your lips after applying.
My mom and I have both been using the scrub for about a week now (applied nightly) and are pleasantly surprised with the results. We both agreed that this lip scrub has actually made a difference in the appearance of our lips. They feel softer, smoother and healthier. Definitely a fantastic product to use during the cold Winter months when lips are prone to cracking and dryness.
We love the Kiss Lip Scrub and will be trying out Lush’s other scrubs in the future.
