♡ Lush Birthday Haul ♡


It was my birthday last week (on the 16th!) and I am now the grand age of 26........ creeping just a little bit more closer to the big 30! I had an amazing weekend celebrating with my best friend, and a couple of close friends, we ate and drank and ate some more, it was all I needed to be honest! I was also spoiled rotten with some lovely gifts from my friends, family and co-workers but, I treated myself to some things from LUSH in Chelmsford - as it's the closest location to where I live.

Now, it is EXTREMELY hard for me not to purchase every, single, item available in front of me, but I did manage to control myself... sort of. As LUSH has brought out all of their Christmas selection, it made choosing a few bath bombs even harder - even though I knew that I was DEFINITELY getting the Intergalactic bath bomb, as it my all time favourite one because c'mon, you are bathing in a glittery galaxy... GLITTERY GALAXY!! So at the end of my browsing session, I swear that I was in the store for over an hour choosing things... I went with *drum rolls*

Intergalactic ever wondered what bathing in deep space would be like? Invite the cosmos into your bathroom with this sexy, interstellar bomb and become the guardian of your own galaxy. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour sends your mood rocketing, while popping candy takes you on a trip around the Milky Way. Constellations swirl and pop, creating vibrant lustre vortexes in the night sky. Before you leap too far, rogue layers of vetivert and cedarwood take hold, evoking the warmth of human contact far from home and a hint of 80s aftershave. Return from your intergalactic brief encounter as the grounding scent brings you gently back from orbit.
Frozen do you want to have a bath bomb? Do you want to splash and play? Enjoy the most magical soak in the kingdom with this shimmering blue bath bomb, which spills out rolling snowdrifts of silver lustre. Uplifting neroli from Tunisia and precious rose oil from Turkey are sure to spread a little sunshine and melt the iciest of moods. If your day's felt like a series of doors in your face, this shiny, sky blue bomb filled with sparkle provides the perfect fairytale ending. Step in, take a deep breath and let it go.
Twilight if sleep is evading you, this combination of essential oils will help get you ready for a good night's rest. As Twilight dissolves, it turns from the colour of the setting sun and gets darker, turning your water a shimmering deep purple. The fragrance has been designed to help you sleep: lavender is a soothing, mind-clearing and calming fragrance, used in aromatherapy to treat insomnia and aid restful sleep, while benzoin and tonka call to mind a milky caramel malt drink.
Golden Wonder fancy a tipple? Cognac and zesty lime oils start a party of mood-brightening scents whilst sweet orange oil refreshes the senses. In the water, this present-shaped fizzer unwraps itself to reveal glittering golden lustre and a sparkling turquoise explosion. Don't wait until Christmas day to bathe yourself in festive luxury!
Shoot for the Stars stay very still to watch the swirling colours of the night sky dazzle in your bath water. As the calming blanket of shimmering midnight blue unfolds, Brazilian orange and bergamot oils take your skin to heaven and your mood rocketing up to the stars.
Snow Fairy Shower Gel when the days are dark, add a little Christmas magic to your shower and some much-needed sparkle to your daily routine. This candyfloss-scented shower gel will gently cleanse hair and body and leave a mouthwatering perfume on your skin. Shower with a gel that's sure to tickle you pink by picking up this candyfloss body cleanser.
Santa's Lip Scrub prime your pout with this moisturising cola-flavoured lip scrub that leaves your lips buffed and ready for Santa Baby – or any other Lush lip tint or balm. Caster sugar, dates and cherries scrub and soften, giving them a taste of Christmas. Dab a little on and buff, licking off the excess. It's the sweetest way to welcome festive kisses.
Key Lime Pie Lip Balm for lips as scrumptious as pie, oh my! This zesty lime treat is a crowd pleaser, filled with zingy citrus oils and restorative butters. Dab a little all over truly lickable lips. Handy, travel-sized hydration for whenever you find yourself in the limelight.

Tah dah! I know a couple of the bath bombs are in the Christmas selection, but I liked the Frozen one when I used it previously and I have been meaning to try the Twilight one for a while now so... and the reason behind the lip balm is because, it is actually my favourite lip balm and I lost my previous one *ugly sobs* so it gave me a good excuse to purchase another one! Despite stocking up on these beauties, I have shamelessly asked my parents for a LUSH gift card or something along those lines for Christmas, just so I can get more bath bombs! A girl can never have too much LUSH in her life... right?

Thanks for reading!
