I’m a long time fan of Lush massage bars. Not only do I use them in massage, or should I say my husband uses them on me in massage but I also use them as moisturisers. Nothing beats them for dry shins I find! My bar of choice is the vanilla one, possibly called Vanillary… I don’t know and I can’t check because it doesn’t seem to be on the website…nooo! They’d better not have discontinued it! Anyway, for Valentines, as always, Lush have a little selection of new limited edition products, one of which is the divine Love Potion massage bar. Alas mine arrived a little battered.
Fortunately it wasn’t rendered any the less useful. It’s just a shame the top fell off because it’s so cute! Anyway. You just warm these in your hands and then rub the oil where it needs to be. If I’m applying to my legs or something though I tend to just rub the bar up my legs and then rub that in.
The scent of this one is Lush’s Love perfume. Apple blossom, orange root, lemongrass, cinnamon and a touch of carnation, you also can smell the cocoa butter base. I love this, in fact I prefer it to the Vanilla one, so all is not lost if the vanilla has been discontinued, my husband likes both but prefers the other. I get apple and cinnamon scent from this whereas my husband gets orange. It’s lovely! £5.95.
There are other things available just for Valentines Day, a new perfume entitled 25,43. The unusual name is the amount of time taken to create the original perfume, 25 minutes and 43 seconds. Lime tonka accord with sweet warm hay notes and a fresh green citrus top. There’s a soap, Sweetheart Soap scented with jasmine, sandalwood, ylang ylang and a bit of benzoin and bergamot. There a couple of favourites back this year, the Leap Frog Bath Ballistic and the Magic Mushroom bubble bar. A few new gifts as well. If you’re looking for smelly valentines presents then do check out Lush. I’m going to go and sniff the perfume and soap I think.
