LUSH Easter Haul 2016

I have no self restraint in LUSH when there are seasonal collections. At Christmas I go crazy, at Halloween I have to have a freaky looking bath, and for Easter, well it just had to be done. It's basically self indulgence without the calories (which I am sure I will be consuming at a very fast rate). Since it's the bank holiday weekend and I am spending it at my Mum's house, I knew I had to take full advantage of having a bath, therefore I decided to pop into the LUSH Oxford Street store (a lushie's dream) to pick up some of the Easter bits that have caught my eye over the past couple of weeks. I couldn't go too crazy because a) money and b) there are only so many baths one can have in a weekend, but I still had to get more than one thing. It took me so long to decide what to buy (and I am now full on regretting the fact that I didn't get the bubble bar carrots or that cute little fella Humpty Dumpty) but I am very happy with the few bits I did choose...

Firstly, I knew I had to have a bubble bar because they are my favourite and are the best value for money - in my opinion. Down The Rabbit Hole (£3.95) caught my eye almost instantly as I was drawn in by the potency of the orange oil. Another citrus scent (you can notice the theme in my choices) that is super uplifting. In the below demo photo I used the rainbow bath bomb and half of this bubble bar and it turned out to be one very enlivening bath. I definitely wanted to jump straight in, just as a bunny would want to dive into the hole. I love that this has lustre in it too for extra sparkle.

I had seen this Somewhere Over The Rainbow (£3.25) bath bomb when I first received the LUSH Easter press release and knew that I had to see what it was like. I was expecting this to turn the bath a number of different colours, but it was kind of just red and orange - reminiscent of the yellow brick road though, which was mentioned in the product description. I was a little sad to see that the purple/blue didn't really come through, but it was still really pretty to watch fizz away and smelt divine. The bath bomb offers a citrus infusion of mandarin and neroli, which is always pleasant, along with a hint of rose absolute.

Now I couldn't leave the store without this little chap. A bright yellow Spring Bunny (£3.45), which instantly got me in the spirit of Easter and made me feel all giddy for spring. The bonus? he smells like sherbet lemons. The bath bomb also contains cocoa butter for its skin softening properties. It reminds me of butter bear but with a spring make-over; simple, but lovely. This gives the bath a bright yellow make-over with a hint of green for the inside of the bunny's body.
