Walking along any high street I'm like a homing pigeon, first it is the smell, like sweet lemon sherbet wafting along the high street that peaks my attention. Then it is the brightly adorned window displays with soaps, bath bombs, bars, creams and lotions. Walking past is simply not possible.
I love my baths as it is the only time of day that I get just ten minutes to myself and with Lush products it just makes them even better.
So when I was given the "Hello Gorgeous" gift set as a present containing three of my favourites, well you could say I was a little bit excited.
All Lush gifts come in beautiful packaging that almost look too beautiful too unwrap. I am looking forward to putting this box to good use afterwards.
So what comes inside?
Rub, Rub, Rub - Shower Scrub (£8.50),
The Comforter - Bubble Bar (£4.50),
Twilight Bath Bomb (£3.25),
Think Pink Bath Bomb (£2.50),
Vanilla Dee-Lite (£12.50),
Gorgeous Moisturiser tester.
First up is the comforter. My top tip is to cut it into four quarters and that way you get four baths. Each quarter crumbled under a running tap is more than enough to get lovely bubbles and a beautiful aromatic bath of Cassis and Bergamot.
Despite looking like a raspberry Slush Puppie, Rub, Rub, Rub is a little pot of heaven before any summer holiday. Taking a small amount rub all over your skin to remove dead skin. It smells wonderfully and lemony and is great for rejuvenating skin back to life.
Two very different bath bombs. Twilight is a slow burner and takes a good five minutes to melt away in a bath, turning beautiful shades of pink and blue whilst it dissolves. This is the perfect bath bomb before bed, very soothing with lavender and the Ylang Ylang oils do wonders for dry skin.
Think Pink quickly dissolves, it is not a favourite of mine as it is gone to quickly and is very sweet. But it makes for a pretty bath.
Now Vanilla I am not normally a great fan but Vanilla Dee-Lite body lotion is divine. If your skin is in need of a pick me up this is the perfect thing to use. It is a light lotion that is easily absorbed into the skin and the coconut oil does wonders for my skin. I also love the way the smell of coconut and vanilla hangs around.
My only bugbear about Lush is that when their gift boxes have fresh products why these either are not added to a gift box when purchased or that the box has an expiration date.
I have had a few boxes now that the products inside basically expire in a few months of purchase. The Vanilla Dee-Lite had eleven days to use and I would never be able to use all of the product in this time.
The last item in this wonderful gift box is Gorgeous facial Moisturiser. This product is like a little pot of gold. Packed with citrus fruit oranges, lemons, pineapple and evening primrose oil this works wonders on my dry and dull looking skin. If you are looking for a pick-me-up this is it.
