Easter at LUSH

LUSH Easter 2015

The LUSH Easter 2015 collection is very festive with a mixture of old favorites and NEW inventions! Once this collection was online, I immediately ordered these products:

  • Pot O’ Gold Shower Jelly – a soothing and cleansing jelly! I am not a huge fan of shower jellies, but knew I had to try this one for its gold hue! Have you tried this jelly yet? What do you think?
  • Somewhere Over the Rainbow Soap – an insanely beautiful and vibrant rainbow! Uplifting scents and colors make this product the perfect pick me up. Have you seen this soap in store? Check out the entire rainbow now!
  • Bubblegrub Bubble Bar – sweet as can be! I just used this product and adored the sweet scents, orange tones, and bubbles! The only downfall… melted white chocolate eyes stuck to the bottom of my tub.
  • Ultraviolet Bubble Bar – a bubble bar the size of The Comforter! Cool shades of purple, blue, and green are mixed together with hints of violet and jasmine. I have not used this bubble bar yet, but look forward to violet bubbles to go along with my Violet Nights bath oil (a Cosmetics-To-Go classic).
  • Golden Egg Bath Bomb – a hybrid bath bomb and bath melt. This toffee scented creation is super, super sweet! It feels like you are taking a bath in liquid gold… with bio-degradable glitter and olive oil floating around. The only downfall about this returning product is the overwhelming amount of glitter. Your bath tub will be covered in gold for days!
  • Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb – my FAVORITE! I love Fluffy Egg! This candy bath with a pink hue is an incredible soak. The sweet scent also lingers on your skin for hours! Is this bath bomb also one of your favorites?
  • The Immaculate Eggception Bath Bomb – a 3 in 1 bath bomb! Eggception is a returning bomb that comes in yellow and pink. I love this bath as it is very festive with a mini surprise in the middle!
  • Hoppity Poppity Bath Bomb – a fresh #spring bath! Earthy and minty tones make this bath bomb a perfect product to refresh your senses. Pop rocks are imbedded in this bunny to further create a relaxing environment of popping bubbles.

Bath Tray – You Can Do It!

Bath Tray

Do you like to read, work on your computer, or watch Netflix in the bath? I sure do! This handmade bath tray changed my life (Literally). I can finally relax and enjoy my bath! I do not have to tire out my arms by holding a book out of the water for 45 minutes or watch Netflix from across the bathroom and have to wear my foggy glasses.

I got this idea from Pinterest (who does not get ideas from there?). Measure two pieces of wood to fit the width of your bath tub, put them together, and then paint… Super easy! What is on my bath tray you might ask?

  • The Mum Reusable Bubble Bar – I purchased this honey-toffee bubble bar from last years Mother’s Day Collection at LUSH Cosmetics. Discover Bunch of Carrots for a similar experience from the Easter 2015 Collection.
  • Plumeria Bath Salts – a little Plumeria never hurt no one! Want more tropical flower scents in your mainland life? Check out KopaKauai handmade soaps on Etsy! I purchased the Sea Salt Soap in Plumeria (of course). I enjoy using it in the morning to wake me up and put a smile on my face!
  • Abra Bath Salts in Sleep Therapy – the perfect touch to a night time bath!
  • Hugo Bath Salts – The bath salts in the brown bag and the paper bag are from Hugo! These salts are all natural, have great scents, and sure creates a soothing bath!
  • Tidy Thyme Santa’s Breath Soy Candle – This mint chocolate soy candle is scrumptious! Even though it is a holiday item, all year-round it will sweeten your bathroom! Tidy Thyme also has great plant based cleaning products!

Five Baths To Warm Your Heart

Happy Valentine’s month! First, I want to apologize for not posting last week – crazy time crunch with homework, work, and of course, Valentine’s Day! How did you celebrate?

  • Unicorn Horn – the Bubble Bar of the year! This lavender infused, rainbow, sparkly cone invokes all things LUSH! It makes you smile and think happy thoughts in the bath! This product also created a mountain of bubbles! Were you lucky enough to give Unicorn Horn a try?! You might still have a chance with my next giveaway… comment below to enter by telling me what makes you happy!  
  • Heart Throb Bubbleroon – This bubbler turns your bath a rose-y red while creating a strong floral scent in your bathroom (similar to African Paradise Body Conditioner). The best part? All the gold glitter you have to clean out of your tub!
  • Love Locket – The classic 3-in-1 bath bomb! Nothing changed with this all time favorite since my last review. Although, it sure does create a beautiful light pink water with tiny red hearts floating around. Did you see this bath on my Instagram (@andreapuskar)?
  • Lonely Heart – I love this simple bubble bar! It turns your bath water a scarlet red with a tangy, jasmine vibe. LUSH needs to have a red bubble bar available all year long! What product do you think is the closest to Lonely Heart?
  • Floating Flower – The newest Bath Bomb innovation, one that twirls! I really enjoyed this bath with the pastel colors and a bright center – what a surprise! Plus, the scent is one of my all time LUSH favorites – sensual jasmine! Hope Floating Flower will make appear again next February!

P.S. – Can you find a hint in this post for my next giveaway?! 

LUSH Mother’s Day Bubble Bars

Hello all! I am very sorry for not posting last week… it has been one crazy month! I finished school, struggled through finals, and my boyfriend visited from Houston. I am also packing for FRANCE! Yes, I am heading to France in three days to spend time in Paris and Normandy! I am an Europe virgin… so this will be an experience of a lifetime! I am not sure how blogging will be over in Europe. But, I plan to blog a couple of times before I leave. Now to the LUSH limited edition Bubble Bars:

IMG_6652IMG_6653IMG_6655IMG_6558

This is the Rose Bubble Bar from the LUSH Mother’s Day range. It is a beautiful rose scent and creates a light pink bubble bath! I really enjoyed this bath because it was simple. There was no debris, glitter, or overwhelming scent. It is a great starter bubble bar. Unfortunately, this Rose is not available online, but it could still be available at your local LUSH store! Check it out before it is too late!

IMG_6638IMG_6555IMG_6527IMG_6606

Wonder Woohoo is another bubble bar from the LUSH Mother’s Day range. I was very excited to try this one since it is covered in good glitter and is inspired by Wonder Woman! LUSH did a phenomenal job connecting an inspiring, female superhero to mothers all around the world with this product! Wonder Woohoo creates many bubbles and turns the bath water a liquid gold. The scent is a fresh citrus. Some of the natural ingredients include  cornflour and Brazilian orange oil. The other ingredients are natural synthetics. Unlike Rose, this product is still available online at LUSH USA. Wonder Woohoo might also be available in LUSH stores also for a limited time.

So Many Bath and Retro Goodies – LUSH Haul

Happy St. Patricks day everyone! I recently ordered some LUSH products online because my mother wanted to try some new bath bombs! I also thought that it was time for me to purchase some new bath products! I like to order a few LUSH Retro products when I order online since they are only available there. Here are the products I ordered online:

IMG_5674

  • Okra hair conditioner – I was really interested to try this hair product from the LUSH Retro line since I love to eat okra. I am not sure how I like this conditioner yet since I have only used it once! But it honestly is a bit spicy!
  • Rose Queen bath bomb – This was a repurchase for me. I really enjoy taking a bath with this product from time to time because it has a lovely rose smell! I will be doing a review on this one very very soon!
  • Fizzbanger bath bomb – I actually think this will be the first time for me using this bath bomb! My mother really likes it, so I decided to try it also! Apparently, it has a note in the middle of it just like the original LUSH bath bomb, the Blackberry Bomb.
  • Twilight bath bomb – I just used this one in a bath! It was absolutely great! This is the perfect sleepy time bath bomb. Review coming up soon!
  • Bathos bubble bar – This is a bath product from the LUSH Retro collection. I actually enjoyed it. The aroma is quite relaxing and it created tons and tons of bubbles! I will for sure be doing a review on this product soon.
  • Softy bath bomb – This bath bomb is a part of the LUSH Retro collection. I thought that it looked very refreshing and rosy! Surprisingly, it is much larger than Rose Queen! I cannot wait to try out this product!
  • Honey I Washed The Kids Sample – Also in the package, I got a sample of the famous and most popular LUSH soap, Honey I Washed The Kids! I actually have a huge bar of this already! But, samples are always nice.

If you are curious to know what products I ordered my mom… here is a list! I got her: The Lord of Misrule, Phoenix Rising, Rose Jam, Fizzbanger, and the LUSH soap, Sultana of Soap!

Have you tried any of these LUSH products? What is your favorite bath bomb?

Magic Wand Bubble Bar Review

Hello all! The schoolwork is coming in fast… I already have so much readings! But anyways, that just means fewer posts each day 😦 I wanted to talk about another LUSH holiday bath product, Magic Wand! This is a cool invention because it is basically a bubble bar on a stick that you swish under your faucet and can use multiple times. I have used mine about four times and it looks brand new! I was a bit upset thought because my wand did not come with a little bell 😦

Here is Magic Wand:

IMG_3963

 

Positives:

  • Cute design – I love the look of this product! It looks like the tulip bubble stick LUSH came out with around Easter last year (I think I blogged about it a long time ago). Anyways, this design is super cute and helpful. You do not even have to put your hands on the product! Just need to do a few swishes under the running water. I also love the florescent pink color and the hot pink ribbon hanging down it. There is normally a bow at the end of the ribbon… but mine is bell-less.
  • Great smell- This is the exact same aroma as the Snow Fairy shower gel. It is super super sweet. Basically smells like a cotton candy explosion… even though I might not like this smell so much for the shower… It is beyond perfect for the bath!

Negatives:

  • Missing bubbles – You have to use a lot of swishes to get A LOT of bubbles. I like a good amount of bubbles in my bath because I love to lay and listen to them pop! So a downfall with this bubble bar stick is that I have to use it constantly when filling my bath tub to get a good amount of bubbles.

Unfortunately, Magic Wand is not available anymore. LUSH will probably come out with another bubble bar stick for another holiday! Like I said above, they came out with one for Easter last year (and that is not to to to far away). Let me know if you have tried any of the cool bubble bar sticks from LUSH!

 

In The Nude Bath Trio

With the start of the dry and cold winter air, I decided to celebrate the beginning of this season with a special bath trio! Recently I purchased the Retro, In The Nude bath melt because according to LUSH, it is used “for dry, sore or irritated skin.” I have an obsession with bath melts and thought that this one would be very beneficial for the winter months.

Here is the link to In The Nude: http://www.lushusa.com/In-The-Nude/02160,en_US,pd.html#q=In%2520The%2520Nude&start=1

Besides In The Nude, the trio was:

  1.  In The Nude bath melt
  2. Lavender bath confetti
  3. Tulip bubble stick

IMG_3689

I purchased the lavender confetti at a store in Rhinebeck, NY called Merriweathers. If you are not from the NY area, I am sure that you would not have a problem at all finding confetti online.

The other product I used in the bath was the Tulip bubble bar on a stick from the LUSH Easter collection. LUSH is not selling this product anymore but they have the Magic Wand bubble bar stick in their Christmas collection, which I am sure is the same. For this product, you put it under the faucet and then all of the bubbles start to form as the tub fills up.

I really enjoyed this bath trio. The water was extra hydrating and soothing from the In The Nude bath melt. The Tulip bubble stick also added all of the bubbles and added the smell one of my favorite LUH products, Yuzu and Cocoa bubble bar. Finally, the bath confetti added a bit of fun and made the tub look pretty.
