Hello my lovelies!
Hope you’ve all had a fantastic weekend? I've been a busy bee taking blog pictures today, but I did have a bit of a nightmare with my lighting and a few of my shoots haven't turned out as well as I would have liked #bloggerporbs. I've got a super busy week ahead, so I wanted to make sure that I spent today organising everything to help to reduce any mid-week stress. I must admit I love a good old pamper! I try to schedule in two pamper evenings a week, one on the weekend and another midweek. I honestly believe that a spending a little time here and there on you is the best way to de-stress and re-focus. Yesterday, I went on a super fun shopping trip with Daniel and Honey Bea (My Niece) and oh my god, I forgot how much fun Toy shopping was ha ha! It was such a lovely day and even though I didn’t do much shopping myself, I did pop into LUSH to get a few bits for a lovely pamper evening (or three) – I put a poll out this morning and the LUSH haul won, so I hope you enjoy reading about the few bits I picked up whilst on my travels.
I purchased the Ultra Violet Bubble Bar last week for the first time and it’s very quickly become one of my favourite Lush products. I had a bit of a panic when I found out it was LE, so I had to go back and pick up another to keep me going a little longer. Violet is such a nostalgic scent for me and reminds me of spending amazing weekends away in Devon with my family when I was younger. It really reminds me of when life was simple and every time I smell a Violet scented product, I pretty much always buy it! The Ultra Violet Bubble Bar combines a decadent mix of violet and jasmine, with twinkling snowflake lustre. Rosewood adds a deeper note to this super sweet bubble bar and not to forget the gorgeous sparkly purple water, which genuinely looks like something a Unicorn would bathe in! The bubbles are fantastic and you can easily get 4-5 baths out of this, I just love it and had to stock up.
Whilst in Lush it definitely seemed like I was going for all the fun, exciting and refreshing products, so I thought I would pick up Yoga Bomb to add a bit of Zen to my Lush Haul. I haven’t actually tried Yoga Bomb before, but follow me on my Snapchat for a live demonstration |JewelBeautyBlog| Yoga Bomb contains soothing sandalwood, relaxing olibanum and ho wood to create a meditative state of mind. Slow mesmerising shades or oranges, purples and turquoise fizz to create your own little sanctuary. I can't wait for this one!
I also purchased this bath bomb last week on my travels and again I was so wowed by it that I knew I had to get another! I love a bath bomb to be fun and Intergalactic sure is fun. Intergalactic is a super refreshing mix of peppermint, vetivert and cedar wood that helps to add some warmth. It also has popping candy, which is just awesome! I love popping candy so much and always pick up a bag if I see it in a sweet shop (Big kid alert) This Bath Bomb really is something else and it almost feels like your in the middle of a galaxy as the bath bomb swirls and pops, creating a super vibrant, glittery fun bath. If you’re looking for a more uplifting bath bomb opposed to a relaxing one then you really need Intergalactic in your life!
I’m usually pretty on it with toning, but recently I’ve become a bit lazy and I don’t know why! Whilst queueing up in Lush, I glanced over and saw the Tea Tree Toning Water, which seems to be a favourite amongst many bloggers! I picked one up and I’m really glad I did. I’ve only used it twice, but I was surprised and how calming and soothing this felt on the skin. Tea Tree is an amazing ingredient, but sometimes I find it a little overpowering, so I’m glad that this product is subtler than I was expecting. This toner also contains Grapefruit, which is rich in vitamins, as well as juniper berry that is also an antiseptic ingredient.
Last, but certainly not least is Let The Good Times Roll, which is a exfoliating cleanser. I’ve had this little beauty in my collection for the past three years and I still can’t get over how good it smells. It reminds me a little bit of butterkist popcorn (It does actually contain popcorn), but it smells even better than that! You really have to pop into Lush to smell it and then you will know what I mean. Maize flour and polenta gently exfoliate the skin, whilst cinnamon powder gently stimulates the skin. Depending on how much you use LTGR can get a little scrubby, but I tend to mix it with quite a bit of water so it turns into a paste that perfectly buffs the skin and leaves your skin feeling beautifully soft and pampered. It’s like a sleepover in a pot!
I hope you've enjoyed this mini Lush haul my lovelies! I don't think you can beat a little Lush treat now and then and I would love to hear your thoughts below. Have you tried or would you like to try any of the products mentioned in today's post? Each and every comment means the world to me and I know it sounds cliche, but it makes me smile from ear to ear! A comment is the very best feeling :)
Have a great week!
Lots of Love
