*NEW* LUSH FRESH HANDMADE COSMETICS: MOTHER'S DAY LIMITED EDITION GIFT BOX + SELECTED DECADENT LUSH GOODIES REVIEW!

LUSH MOTHER'S DAY LIMITED EDITION GIFT BOX


Hi beauty lovers, 


With my other previous Mother's Day gift ideas review, I spoke about simple gift ideas. Well you're in luck for those who are still tossing with decisions and still unsure of what to get your Mum for this Mother's day. Have no fear, you still have plenty of time till Sunday 10th May 2015. That's three weeks left guys!

LUSH is always prepped and ready to release their Mother's day gift boxes and many types of bath soaps that are so nicely scented! So why not spoil your Mum this Mother's Day with a box full of LUSH bath products so she can be pampered!

 When I first saw the LUSH box, it was simply gorgeous with the bright colours and flower patterns. LUSH gift boxes are a jaw dropper and once your Mum receives her box, she'll be gobsmacked by how luscious LUSH products really are. When it comes to selecting which handmade soap to gift, there are so many types you can select from - in the box I have shown below - features a selection which I think would be ideal for my mum because she loves LUSH products herself! 

LUSH boxes are 100% recycled and so you're not hurting the environment by choosing to get their gift boxes along with their luscious soaps and lotions. In the below photo, the box features FIVE awesome products from LUSH.  



LUSH goodies featuring (From left to right): Yummy Mummy Shower Gel (purple bottle), Butterball bath bomb, Mother Superior Bubble Bar, Love You Mum Soap (Red flower soap) and the Yummy Mummy Body Conditioner. 




The LUSH selection above of which I will review include the following products: 
  • Yummy Mummy Shower Gel
  • Yummy Mummy Body Conditioner
  • Butterball bath bomb
  • Mother Superior Bubble Bar
  • Love You Mum Soap


Yummy Mummy Shower Gel

 What a great way to show your Mum some love by getting her the Yummy Mummy Shower Gel. The shower gel has a very nice lilac colour to the liquid consistency and it's packed with natural ingredients containing minimal water hence you don't need a great amount to achieve a full body cleanse. A little goes a long way...

The instructions of how to use this Yummy Mummy Shower Gel goes something like this: 
"Get naked, hop in the shower and lather up" 
It's a really cool multi-functional gel where you can use this as a shampoo as well, because of the jammed packed natural ingredients and if you want to smell like deep rich violet scent, then be sure to pick this beauty up. The lather of this product is quite rich and fruity which is perfect if you're wanting the fruity smell in your shower gels. Of course, I had to do a test of this product and I found that the scent lingers after use and so you'll just smell amazing for the rest of the day. It's a light and refreshing shower gel where it is appropriate for everyday use. I found it to be gentle on skin and really of good consistency for a shower gel. 

Shampoo wise, it didn't make my hair feel dry at all which I am happy. I felt it made it feel soft and my hair smelt really fruity! The product is packed with Geranium oil, Brazilian orange oil and tonka absolute making this shower gel very delicate and safe to use. 

As a limited edition product, I'd hop into the store now before it runs out! Overall this is definitely a 4.5/5 stars for me!

Here are the infamous pros and cons: 

POSITIVES:
  • Rich and lathers up quite nicely. 
  • Light and refreshing fruity scent. 
  • Smell permeates your body making your body smelling really nice for longer. 
  • A little goes a long way/ 
NEGATIVES:
  • LIMITED EDITION ONLY until stock runs out. You can check out your nearest LUSH store for more information to see if they stock this. 
BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Only need a small amount of product to lather up.
WHERE TO PURCHASE: 





Yummy Mummy Body Conditioner

After a good cleanse with the shower gel it's always good to follow up with a body conditioner. The one I tested out was in Yummy Mummy Body Conditioner which gives you soft and scrumptious skin. Filled with many luscious elements of bits of fruits, I can definitely say this a fruity type of body conditioner which will make you smell nice all day long. 

LUSH says that it's made with silky-soft butters, almond oil with a dash of fresh strawberry juice. Sounds all yummy right? Because it simply is yummy, I couldn't wait to write all about my experiences. 

For application of this body conditioner, I would smooth the cream over my body after a shower or bath - then look to rinse away to reveal soft looking skin. The thing with LUSH products is that they're so scented and in a good way, you'd want to smell nice all day long. I think it's such a great element to their handmade soap ranges that I can't flaw anything about their products. The body conditioner really helps especially with Winter approaching (in Australia) it's a good alternative to ensure that your skin receives a well, moisturising treatment. 

For a limited edition product in LUSH stores, I would recommend those who want to give this a go, try it out for yourselves! I get so excited whenever I'm in the LUSH stores because there's so many to select from. 

Overall, I can't find any flaws with this so I'm giving this a 5/5 stars! 

POSITIVES:
  • Gives you soft and silky looking skin. 
  • Smells so nice of silky butter, almond oil and fresh strawberry juices. 
  • Simple to use. 
  • Smell lasts on body for the whole day. 
NEGATIVES:
  • LIMITED EDITION ONLY until stock runs out. You can check out your nearest LUSH store for more information to see if they stock this. 
BEAUTY TIPS:
  • Use on your body by smoothing this over wet skin after washing. Remember to rinse ff and towel dry yourself. 
WHERE TO PURCHASE:




Fancy a bubble bath? 

If you're considering on purchasing some of the bath bombs and soap for your Mum, here are a few suggestions that you might want to check out! 



Mother Superior Bubble Bar (Give us today our daily bath with a heavenly lather)

I thought this bath bar was adorable! I could really make out that it was of a woman's face. LUSH has brought more character to their soap ranges by making them alive..looking!! (Hope you get my drift) 

This bubble bath bar will leave your skin feeling soft and smelling of cherry blossoms. You simply crumble this under running water to create your ideal heavenly experience. I felt that it was a very fragrant bar which reminded me of spring cherry blossom trees. It's a great pick up for your Mum and yourself! 

It's a good bar where you can get at least 2-3 uses from it depending on how you divide the bar. Definitely have to pick this up before Mother's Day because it's only on the Limited Edition special range. 

Overall this was a 5/5 stars for me!

POSITIVES:
  • Handmade
  • Smells like cherry blossom
  • Adorable face-like soap. 
  • Creates heavenly like bubble in your bath tub. 
NEGATIVES: 
  • LIMITED EDITION - Only for Mother's Day special 
BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Make sure you crumble under running warm water first whilst filling your bath tub. One bar yields one bath. In order to get more bubbles, adjust your water pressure to a stronger level but this will highly depend on your water tap system.
  • You can split the bubble bar and use the other half another time, just be sure to store it away in a cool dry place. 
WHERE TO PURCHASE: 



Love You Mum Soap 

This is a gorgeous floral design soap to include in your gift box as it's part of the LIMITED EDITION range. It is elegant and beautiful looking for a soap where it's been handcrafted with the flowers mimosa and jasmine present in the bar of soap. It's designed to 'calm' your mind and this will certainly help you and or your Mum to relax and soak in the tub. Sometimes you need to find a really good bar of soap where you can feel at peace and calm whenever you get super busy days. 

It has quite of a nice floral scent to it where you just feel exotic when you apply this to your skin. To use this product, I simply lathered this with warm water and slowly inhaled and exhaled the mesmerizing floral scent. 

Overall this is a 4.5/5 stars for me! 

POSITIVES:
  • Handmade
  • Smells like floral flowers - mimosa and jasmine. 
  • Helps to relax and calm your mind. 
  • Does not contain any animal products.
NEGATIVES: 
  • LIMITED EDITION - Only for Mother's Day special 
BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Make sure you crumble under running warm water first whilst filling your bath tub. One bar yields one bath. In order to get more bubbles, adjust your water pressure to a stronger level but this will highly depend on your water tap system.
  • You can split the bubble bar and use the other half another time, just be sure to store it away in a cool dry place. 
WHERE TO PURCHASE: 


Butter Ball Bath Bomb

The name says it all. If you're wanting a beautiful bath bomb that smells of butter, vanilla scented aromas, then be sure to keep on reading to see what is this Butter Ball Bath bomb! 

When placed in a bathtub, you'll find that you'll be surrounded by a nice and comfy butter bubbly froth. There are chunks of cocoa butter present in this bath bomb which acts to be very moisturising and re-hydrating for anyone with dry skin. I found that this bath bomb did not dry out my skin because usually warm water tends to dry out my skin and makes it red. In this case, it made my bath experience even more relaxing. 

POSITIVES:
  • Handmade
  • Comes with cocoa butter and vanilla fragrance. 
  • Very re-hydrating for those with dry skin. 
  • Soothes irritated skin. 
  • Relaxing. 
NEGATIVES: 
  • You may get chunks of cocoa butter residue, but have no fear just simply wipe and rinse off with water. 
BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Fill your bath tub with warm water then simply drop the bath bomb. 
WHERE TO PURCHASE: 

LUSH is always a good selection when it comes to picking up some gorgeous soaps! 

I hope I could help in giving you all some ideas for your Mother's Day purchases! Let me know on some of the ideas you'll be getting for your Mum! 

Happy shopping and reading!
