I’ve returned to share some of my lush obsession with you all again, this time it’s with their Spring/Easter 2015 collection. There are a couple things out of the collection I wasn’t able to pick up due to it being sold out online, and I unfortunately don’t live near a Lush and have never actually stepped foot into one! I tried these rather slowly due to some madness going on in my personal life. Baths were few, far between and very much needed and appreciated when I had a spare moment to myself!
1. The Golden Egg
This bath bomb/melt combo was covered in gold glitter and smelled strongly of caramel. It’s appearance reminded me so much of Sunny Side, the glittery bubble bar. Their website describes the Golden Egg as, “You can stop hunting for eggs, because the hunt ends here! This spectacular invention has combined a Bath Bomb and a Luxury Bath Melt to create (drumroll please…) the Bath Bomb Melt! “ I really really enjoyed this one. A friend called it an “out of control potato” on my instagram video. It did take a while to dissolve, but I think that has to do with the “bath melt” side of it. Also, did you know “The Golden Egg” is a song by a “band” called Gnarkill? If you’ve see the movies “Haggard” and/or “Minghags” you earn a thousand cool points.
2. Ultraviolet bubble bar
This baby is a huge bubble bar that turned my water a beautiful lavender shade. In my honest opinion, it smells like freshly cut grass. It didn’t bother me too much, though. I got 5 or so baths out of this guy. Lush.com describes it as, “Journey to the end of the rainbow with Ultraviolet. Beyond its shades of purple and violet, this giant Bubble Bar has a gorgeous violet, ylang ylang and jasmine scent that’s intoxicating yet delicate.” I’m not entirely sure if this is part of their Spring line, or if it’s here to stay. I wouldn’t mind either way.
3. Immaculate Eggception Pink
“Inside each giant fizzy egg is a secret surprise. What is it? You’ll just have to crack the Bath Bomb shell to find out. “ This one is a huge egg, and you’re supposed to crack in half. There’s a smaller bath bomb inside, so it’s three in one: side a, side b, and the little cutie in the middle. This is a video of the first half of the outer shell. Inside, there was a smaller yellow egg. I’ve seen chick-shaped bombs inside, too! The water turned a beautiful pink color, and smelled kinda fruity, kinda sweet.
4. Bunch of Carrots
Wasn’t too impressed with the carrots, I didn’t get many bubbles out of them. You do get three baths of out these, but for $12.95 I was expecting the bubbles to be of better quality. Also, this description is killer: “This adorable bunch of carrots may look like you’ve just plucked them from the garden, but they’re actually our freshest and fruitiest springtime bath invention! Hop into the tub with piles of rich, frothy lemon-bergamot bubbles and you’ll have a spring in your step in no time. Each carrot will create at least one bubbly bath, so you’ll get loads of bathing bliss out of this bunch!” …but the carrots themselves left much to be desired.
5. Fluffy Egg
Smells of cotton candy and all things sweet and delicious. “While we love the cheery pink color, it’s the intoxicating candy-sweet aroma that will really draw you in to its fluffy ways! Pop this one in the tub to sink deep into softening, brilliantly pink water—you’ll be left smelling like scrumptious vanilla cotton candy. ”
5. Hoppity Poppity
“Hop into the tub with this adorable bunny for a poppity good time! With a fresh and earthy fragrance of violet, lime and lavender, this rabbit will bring your tub alive with the fragrant joys of springtime.” Very “earthy” indeed. In my opinion, it smelled like grass and didn’t change the color of the water. The only thing it had going for it was it’s cuteness. If this comes out next Spring, I’m definitely going to “hop” over it.
Which of the Easter collection were your favorites? Which ones were regrets? Tell me, tell me! 🙂
