It's the beginning of February and I've only just started using all the cosmetics and products I received for Christmas 2015, and recently I've been using some gorgeous new body care items, courtesy of my best friend, from Lush. I'm a huge fan of Lush products and going to any one of their many stores is truly a sensory paradise. Some people don't like strong smelling (flowers, fruit etc) products, but I love them. If you remember from last Christmas, like many people, I had an abundance of Lush's hugely popular Snow Fairy shower gel which became my absolute favourite for its sweet bubble gum scent, but this time around I'm equally as delighted to be using my new set. What have you recently picked up/received from Lush?
'You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face. With a little helping had from this shower gel'

Shower gel is a crucial part of my daily beauty routine, and since I'm just not a bath person, I can't really take advantage of bath bombs or products like that. Beautiful is Lush's vegan Apricot infusion shower gel with notes of peach and a shimmer of gold. I love the fruity combo, it smells gorgeous and as always, it lathers wonderfully. What makes this shower gel a little more special, albeit festive, is the little specs of shimmery gold which I think was a wonderful touch. It contains some essential oils, Lactic acid and even Myrrh. 'You're as beautiful as you feel' with this gorgeous shower gel. 
We all know as far as body lotion goes, Lush basically takes the crown. I'm yet to find any other brands, apart from The Body Shop of course, that have such amazing lotions. The best time to hydrate your skin is after a shower and making sure its the right hydration is crucial. As part of this gift set, Celebrate (another Vegan product), is a citrusy haven. Unlike some body lotions it doesn't cake the skin with a thick layer, it absorbs quickly into damp, sometimes even dry skin and leaves a lovely Lime and Orange flavour behind. The hydration comes from the Almond Oil, Cocoa Butter, Brazilian Orange Oil, and Lime oil; its such a moisturising citrus experience. 
'Cherry on top'
When I first got this gift I thought this little pink cube was indeed a bath bomb, however it turns out to be Lush's Rub Rub Rub Body Scrub. You may have seen the news that went viral about a girl who misused her Lush bath bomb and turned a bright shade of pink which whilst somewhat funny, shows you must know your stuff before assuming how to use it! Thanks to the handy #Whatsinsidecounts booklet which came with this set, I was able to get all the info I needed on this body scrub. 

It literally has a cherry on top, and is a sea salt based dissolving scrub for baths or showers. You just take little chunks from it and exfoliate the skin. Unlike the more strong smelling products, this scrub is very lightly scented with some beautiful tones of Orange Flower, Sakura Flower, and Jasmine. As soon as I smelt it I could tell it was a flower based scrub, but it also includes an array of hydrating ingredients like Sicilian Lemon Oil, Cupuacu Butter and Organic Illipe Butter. I've never used something like this before, but so far my skin has been softer and more hydrated than ever before.

Tried any of my new Lush products? What are your Lush favourites?
