Secret Garden

Secret Garden is another bath bomb from the LUSH Mother’s Day range. I believe this product was created a few years back to celebrate spring time. I have never tried it before, so this is a first impression review!

AROMA: The name gives it away, Secret Garden smells like a floral garden! The main smell is rose. There are three different types of rose ingredients in this product – red rose petals, rose absolute, and rosewood oil. A good floral bath is great once in a while!

COLORS: The outer layer of this bath bomb is so groovy! I love the green with the big pink flower. This layer also is very frothy and creates a layer of bubbles not he top of your tub. Yellow and an array of petals are hidden in the middle. This is the secret garden part! The bath water stays a light, foamy green.

DEBRIS: I love the idea of flower petals in a bath bomb, especially one called Secret Garden, but it does make your tub extra dirty! I always have to rinse out my bath tub after bath bombs with petals, glitter, confetti, etc. I love the baths! The cleaning just is a bit irritating.

INGREDIENTS: The ingredients in Secret Garden include rose absolute, sweet wild orange oil, marigold petals, red rose petals, rosewood oil, gardens extract, and blue mallow flowers. The rest of the ingredients are safe synthetics. This bath product is not vegan.

I would give this product 3 stars out of 5. I like the idea of Secret Garden but it really is just another LUSH floral bath bomb. There is nothing that special about it. Although, if you love to experiment with different LUSH baths, definitely check this one out! It is only available while supplies last after Mother’s Day.

A Woodlands, TX LUSH Haul

How was everyones Easter?! I wanted to start off the week with a haul!!! This has been a long awaited post since I went to this store in March. I was visiting all of my friends and boyfriend in Houston for Spring Break! A LUSH just opened in the past year in Market Street which is in The Woodlands (one of the many suburbs of Houston). I went with my friend Allie to explore this new store!

Ever since I started this blog, my objective has been to review every LUSH product that is around yearly (everything that you can get in the store). I have tried almost all of the products… but some I have not! So this haul consists of repurchases and new purchases! I will specify below:

 

  • Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie: this is actually a new purchase for me. I have always wanted to try this product but I end of giving up when I see the price ($34.95). I did not do that this time though! I just could not pass up the rose smell and my addiction for Shower Smoothies from LUSH has grown significantly!
  • Lip Service Lip Balm: this is also a new purchase. I recently finished my Honey Trap lip balm and needed another balm for my desk! I decided to go with this one since it is the LUSH original lip product!
  • Karma Bubble Bar: this is also a new purchase. Over my time of blogging about LUSH, I have become more and more obsessed with the Karma aroma. They make Karma lotion, soap, perfume, and this bubble bar!
  • Sex Bomb Bath Bomb: this is a repurchase, of course! I decided to get this bath bomb again since I have not yet reviewed it and have not taken a bath with this product in a long time!
  • Mask of Magnaminty Face Mask: this is also a repurchase. My first Mask of Magnaminty was the larger pot (which took me quite a while to use up). One bummer about this product is that it only lasts about three months. So this time, I decided to go for the smaller pot! This is a classic face mask!
  • Avobath Bath Bomb: this is actually a new purchase. I have heard so much about this bath bomb from other LUSH bloggers. So, I decided it was time for me to try it and review!
  • You Snap The Whip Body Butter: this is a repurchase. I am in LOVE with this LUSH body butter. It smells exactly like the Sweetie Pie shower jelly and exfoliates very well. I will be reviewing this product ASAP!
  • Vanilla Delite Body Lotion: this is a new purchase. I heard a lot about this body lotion over the holidays. So, I decided I should check it out! I also have become more and more obsessed with body lotions from LUSH because they work wonders for your skin!
  • Cynthia Sylvia Stout Shampoo: this is a new purchase. I have tried every other LUSH liquid shampoo and this was the only one left! I like it so far… I have been using it quite much in the shower! I really enjoy getting LUSH products in the smallest size so I can try a bunch at once! It is perfect for product reviews!

This was a pretty fantastic haul if you ask me! I really enjoyed meeting that sales associates in this store. They were very very sweet! Also on this shopping excursion, I stopped in one of my favorite clothing stores called Madewell. I learned in this store that LUSH and Madewell were partnering up for an evening to party! I wish I could have attended that night! Check out the Facebook post I found about this event:

Latest LUSH Social Favorites

Hello all! In honor of @lushcosmetics tweeting me back yesterday, I decided it was time for my latest LUSH social media favorites! All of these posts are from different LUSH stores/countries and outlets. I like to follow the LUSH stores that I have been too! Here are my favorites:

Post #1: Yes… I do follow LUSH Australia on Facebook! Who wouldn’t follow them?! I like to see how their social differs from North Americas. They include a lot more edited pictures with text on them in their posts. They still utilize the usual LUSH digital style… but with an Australian twist! You can follow and find their page here.

Post #2:  This picture was “re-grammed” from the Memorial City LUSH onto the @lushcosmetics Instagram. I have been to this location numerous times! It is one of the LUSH and Macy’s collaboration. The hashtag is what makes this post #livingtheLUSHlife! I am going to use this more often!

Post #3: I really really love this post. It is so LUSH like because it is black and white, quirky, happy, and funny! Basically, all of the adjectives that fit the LUSH characteristic. This post is celebrating the opening of the LUSH Cosmetics Woodland Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma!

Post #4: LUSH broke the record of most lip prints! Do y’all remember this LUSH campaign last Valentines?! Well it looks like they hit a benchmark! It is awesome when companies break records because it is very newsworthy. I found this on the @lushcosmetics Instagram!

Post #5: This is a Facebook post from the LUSH Cosmetics Market Street location in The Woodlands, Texas! I was just here last week (haul is coming soon)!! I love this location because it is very spacious which makes it the perfect LUSH for parties!!! One day, I would love to have a part at a LUSH!
