I hope everyone had a great Paddys day and is in tip top form for the week! If not then I get it, I myself was in town and saw the crazy drunken crowds of people. Little to my knowledge, not many shops open on the day but alas, Lush was. I popped in and got some samples and a free face mask as I had 5 empty pots to exchange. I had also gone in earlier to the week. Now lets remember, limited edition products don't count in my Lush ban!
The golden egg drew me in like a moth to a flame. Its part of their Easter range and honest to god would you just look at how sparkly that thing is! I knew one of them just had to be mine. This is a glittery bath bomb and a bath melt rolled into one egg shaped wonder. It smells like one of my favourite soaps from Lush, honey I washed the kids - a sweet honey and toffee scent. Nothing could stop this blossoming romance.
Pop it in the bath and you get lovely yellow glittery water and a decent amount of bubbles. But if I was to split hairs here I would say that a regular bath melt is better for bubbles then this two in one style. None the less its just so lovely to steep in and I really needed it after a long day. It has fair trade cocoa butter, wild orange oil and olive oil to name a few of the ingredients in it that will leave your skin silky smooth when you eventually mange to drag yourself out of the watery world of relaxingness - totally a word fyi...
The one thing that I hated about it? And now, it is only a small thing but its wreaked my head. The glitter. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of glitter, a lover if you will. But it was all over my skin and towel. The shower the next day didn't get it all off and I made the mistake of using the towel from the night before which means I looked like I sloppily devoured a bowl of glitter and the towels needed to be thrown in the wash in order to try and rid the sparkles. Oh well lesson learnt!
Apart from having to keep all my towels separate in future, I might just be tempted to go back and buy another of these beauts. At €4.50 who could say no to that egg?
You're totally just kidding yourself with your spending ban, but I understand completely when it comes to this egg. Anything with caramel/toffee is destined to be a love affair with me!ReplyDelete
I am not! I can totally do this, I haven't bought a non limited edition product since Jan! (I think) Thank you for the understanding, I was weak with the shiny ;) xDelete
I love a good bath bomb but like you, I hate being left covered in glitter. It ruins the experience a bit when I have to scrub the bath afterwards to get rid of said glitter :(ReplyDelete
Ah it took the pleasure out of it having to go get the bleach and give it some elbow, which is sad cos' it was such a lovely bath. But the main grr was that glitter body of mine the next day. not sexy to look like Christmas! :DDelete
