Luxury Bath Oils From Oxford St.

Bath Melts

LUSH Oxford St. Bath Melts Are Heaven On Earth!

Immediately upon walking in LUSH Oxford St. located on the busy streets of London, I spotted the table filled with mini-bath melts. These melts dive into the tub creating a bath of deep colors, intoxicating aromas, and layers of sparkle. Interestingly, LUSH calls these “Luxury Bath Oils” and I can see why – the oils from the melt are so strong, it soaks into your skin within seconds. I picked up 6 mini-melts for only about two pounds each (not a bad deal)!

  1. Furze – the famous Gorilla perfume (Retro) in a bath oil – hints of natural and sweet aromas from this melt will cure any case of the blues! A beautiful product to look at, Furze has a green outer layer with a fuchsia flower bud to top it off without creating any mess.
  2. Sun – a bath oil after the Sun perfume – the bronze (or should I say rose-gold) hue of this melt is enticing. It bleeds orange in the tub to assemble sun-like rays! The scent will remind you of summer days: going to the beach, hanging out at the lake, and soaking up the SUN!
  3. Shark Infested Custard – a sweet melt that is good enough to eat! I adore the aroma of this product since it reminds me of the anticipation of getting a vanilla custard covered with rainbow sprinkles (I can picture it in my head right now) – candy vanilla layered with rich cream. Unfortunately, the melt is hideous upon melting. It just turns into a yellow blob that does not emit enough oil for a filled tub, nor has any unique characteristics.
  4. I Am A Radiant Being – a pink star with a sparkly nucleus. This melt’s twin is Rose Jam since it creates a rosy bath with citrus hints. I enjoyed this product, but like Shark Infested Custard, was a bit disappointed in the overall “bath experience” – the glitter was none existent, while the product failed to melt into the warm water.
  5. Razzle Dazzle  – a hot pink fireball. This melt transforms your bath – the water turns various shades of pink with a glittery sheen. Meanwhile, notes of berries, citrus, and bergamot fill the bathroom, creating an environment filled with positive energy.
  6. Monsieur Gustav – a deep purple mixture of lavender and tobacco. Hands down, this was the most phenomenal Luxury Bath Oil. The smell was super relaxing, yet exotic with the generic lavender and rare tobacco. Even more impressive was the way it transformed plain bath water into a rich escape from the day – violet purple, fuchsia, and silver ribbons of oil swirl throughout the tub. Definitely recommend this product!

Lilly Pulitzer Social Media Favorites

As a Southern Bell, I am a huge fan of the tropical and colorful prints Lilly Pulitzer creates. I especially love all of the prints which make you want to bathe in the sun, attend a party on the beach or make you want to travel through all of the Florida Keys.

Since my love for Lilly is growing and I appreciate it more (I currently am trying to survive a frigid winter), I have started to follow Lilly Pulitzer on almost every social media outlet. I picked three of my favorite posts in the last year to share with y’all!

1. The Bow Tie Post: I really like this post and think it stands out from the rest because it talks about BOY Lilly. Who knew?! It makes sense that Lilly has a hard time relating to the male crowd because they create very feminine prints. But it was a joy to see the company posting about bow ties for once!

2. The Zodiac Post: This is one of my favorite Lilly posts because… I am a Leo and really enjoy reading my horoscope! Another factor that makes this post interesting is the line “We’re celebrating Leo!” because it makes you feel important and special. It was also a good move to make a Leo print that relates with all of the “Leo’s” out there. It will be interesting to see if Lilly makes prints and creates a horoscope for all of the Zodiac signs.

3. Sweater Weather Post: This post probably relates to a lot of people right now because of the beginning of the winter and holiday seasons. This is a very interactive posts because it shows the results of a previous contest. Although only a few letters are available, it was important for Lilly to note that more letters will be added and another competition will be held. (I actually just ordered the “A” sweater for myself!)
