Lush Valentine’s Day 2015 Collection

Lush Valentine's Day Collection 2015

Lush Valentine's Day Collection 2015

I love a seasonal Lush collection. In fact it’s mostly what I buy – every year I go a bit crazy for Halloween and Christmas, then inevitably I’m still in the bath mood when the Valentine and Easter collections come along, then my obsession tails off until the following Halloween. So today I have some pieces from the Valentine’s Day collection and my opinion on then.

For a start, how cute does the collection look? Very Valentine’s Day appropriate. I bought most of the items apart from the Love Locket bath bomb (couldn’t bring myself to spend £6.95 on one bath bomb), the Cupid’s Love soap because I never use it and the two lip products.

First up is the Floating Flower bath bomb (£3.50). It is pretty fancy as it’s fizzing as it lasts a long time and has a few different colours hidden away, until it ultimately leaves your bath a soft pink colour. However, the scent is pure jasmine and it is so strong! I actually found it really overwhelming and not enjoyable at all and had to get out of the bath pretty quick! If you love jasmine, you’ll like this, but I’d recommend smelling it before you buy it as it’s not an “on-the-fence” scent.

The Heart Throb bubble bar (£3.65) is based on their bubbleron range where it’s meant to look like a macaron and you twist it in half to use in two baths. The Valentine one is shaped like a heart (or actually a bit like a bum!) and has gold glitter in the middle. Again, the scent is floral but it’s softened slightly by the inclusion of vanilla. I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it like I did the Floating Flower. It turns the bath a romantic red colour and actually adds moisturising properties to the water with shea butter so does some good.

The Lonely Heart (£3.50) is another bubble bar which features gold glitter in red water, but this one smells great. It stands out from the rest of the collection as it has a predominately citrus smell with lemongrass and bergamot.

Next is probably Lush’s most successful recent launch – the Unicorn Horn bubble bar (£3.25). Firstly, yes, it looks amazing – a pastel swirl studded with stars and dusted with an iridescent shimmer, and y’know unicorn’s are all the rage at the moment, so well done Lush. I am a bit surprised though because I thought that lavender was a bit of a marmite fragrance? The Unicorn Horn smells simply of strong, fresh lavender. Personally, I like lavender (we have it growing in our garden at home) but I know a lot of my friends can’t abide it. I stand corrected though! In the water, the pastel colours don’t really last but you get a good amount of bubbles to pretend you have floated away on a cloud to a magical unicorn land. If you want.

Lastly, I picked up a small bottle of the Prince Charming shower gel (£4.75). Lush shower gel is expensive but I like it as a treat as the scent really lasts on the skin. This one smells of pomegranate juice so is very fresh and fruity.

Did you pick up any of the Valentine’s Day collection? What do you like the look of?

  1. I was so excited to read this post, I bought the unicorn horn last weekend (along with many other things) post will be up sunday 🙂 I also couldn’t bring myself to buy the locket heart, I know its massive, but it was a bit too pricey. :/

  2. By the time feb rolls on in I’m usually still up to my elbows in Christmas lush goodies so have usually missed out the Valentines stuff – but a lot of these look really cute!
