Lush Haul and Pheonix Rising Review

Monday, 21 May 2012

I went to Lush!! I decided I needed a little pick me up and I got the waft of the shop as I walked past and I was enticed in!

Lush have recently held a contraversial campaign Against Animal Testing which I'm sure you have seen, but thats the inspiration around the current packaging.

I have to be honest I'm not fully keen on the new packaging. I think the campaign is a worthy cause, but personally I liked the bright yellow happy sunny packaging - but they still look enticing all wrapped up in the bag - just waiting for you to dive in and pull something out! Like an upmarket bran tub! Who knows what you may pull out!

Well here's exactly what I pulled out!

Top L-R Pheonix Rising Bath Bomb £3.15; You've Been Mangoed Bath Melt £2.95
Butterball Bath Bomb £2.40
Bottom L-R Tulip Reuseable Bubble Bar £4.95 Green Bubbleroon £3.25;
Yazoo & Coco Bubbleroon £2.95

Sweet Lips Lip Scrub £4.95
I have had dry lips of late that lip balms are not quite sorting out so I bought this lip scrub to help smooth them off for my lovely summer shimmery lip glosses!

I have used this re-useable bubble bar already and I'm going to do a review about it shortly.

These are two old favourites of mine. I like putting half of a You've Been Mangoed and Half and Avobath in together.

One thing I do need to mention about Lush is their staff - they are so lovely and enthusiastic. No matter how reluctant you are, they manage to engage you in conversation. It was thanks to the lady in my local Lush store that I even heard about the Instyle Nails Inc polishes!
She suggested I try the Pheonix Rising bath bomb. I'm not sure Lush would be overly happy with her description of it but it's just perfect. It's got a spicy scent, that may remind you of Christmas, but it makes me think of Asian Spices, or maybe what a Abu Dhabi Souk Market may smell like (its even the same colour as Carrie's skirt from that famous moment where she lays eyes on Aiden again!) and she described it as a "self-pity bath bomb". When you really want to feel sorry for yourself and be wrapped in a big purple hug. This bath bomb is exactly that. It's just warming and satisfying in that way. The purple outer gives way to a green centre, which really fizzes! The purple takes longer to fizz so it lasts well.

Have you tried any of these bath bombs?
