Lush Cosmetics Haul + Mini Review

The first snow has fallen as of yesterday! (Can you guess where I am? ;)) In the perfect mood to just sit by the window with a nice cup of hot chocolate (with dozens of marshmallows on top - yum), wrapped up in blankets. I wish it was Christmas eve, this would be a splendid atmosphere.

Just a mini Lush haul

Snow Fairy Shower Gel

This is my favourite Lush item. It has a very strong bubblegum scent. It smells absolutely gorgeous. Love, love, love the colour it's soo pink I instantly feel girlified having this product. I ran for a shower after my Lush order came because this stuff is just amazing. The scent stays on you all day long. I keep sniffing my arm, I hope it doesn't look too odd.. This is only available at Christmas time which makes it extra special.

Bubble Gum Lip Scrup

Ah this smells just like the Snow Fairy with the candyfloss bubblegum like scent. Clears away dead skin and leaves my lips super soft! This is great for winter because my lips do tend to get extremely dry. I absolutely adore this product.

Rating:  ★★★★★

Porridge Soap

Very creamy I really like the texture of this soap. Leaves my skin feeling so soft and moisturised. But I'm not really liking the smell of this, it is slightly off putting but it feels good on the skin and not too abrasive. Bits of oats will come off this bar which can be quite a nuisance.

Rating:  ★★★☆☆ 

Honey I Washed the Kids Soap

It smells a little like toffee and I find it very calming. There's a small area of the honeycomb which mine came off straight away. Slightly expensive considering I've already used most of it, it melts really quickly. But it's a good soap. I just won't be able to repurchase often.

Rating:  ★★★★☆

Yeah love Snow Fairy, the bubblegum scrub smells just like it and it's made up of sugar so you can kind of taste it without ending up in the hospital for eating it (but I still wouldn't recommend you to eat it all up LOL) xxx
