LUSH Valentine's Day 2014
With just about two weeks to go until Valentine's Day, LUSH has rolled out a pretty, pink set of goodies for you (and maybe a special someone) to indulge in. Here's a quick recap of the six limited edition releases (clockwise, from top left):
Love Locket bath bomb ($10.95 CAD) - this heart-shaped bath bomb is scented with vanilla, jasmine, and neroli (also known as orange blossom or orange flower) for an uplifting and sensual fragrance. It splits easily into three parts (two outer halves and one inner heart) to stretch over a few baths. LUSH loves hiding little surprises in its bath bombs and this one is no different: the inner heart contains little red and pink hearts made of biodegradable agar seaweed.
The Kiss tinted lip balm ($9.25 CAD / 6g) - LUSH's lip balm gets a romantic pink tint with moisturizing and softening ingredients like shea butter, cupacu butter, and castor oil to get your lips kiss-ready. The lip balm formula seems to vary across their lip balm line; this one in particular features guarana seed powder as a natural lip plumper, and agave syrup for a high-shine finish.
Close To You massage bar ($7.95 / 43g) - this massage bar is one of the "smooshable" ones, meaning it will melt easily between your pressed palms and used up all in one incredibly moisturizing massage session. The shea butter, murumuru butter, olive oil, and almond oil base has a vanilla scent, similar to Creamy Candy bubble bar and Rock Star soap.
Prince Charming shower gel ($9.95 CAD / 100ml, $19.95 / 250ml, $29.95 / 500ml) - in contrast to the more musky, sensual Love Locket, Prince Charming features grapefruit and pomegranate for a cheerful, energizing scent promising to "sweep you off your feet!" If you love pomegranates, be sure to check this one out, as it's the first and only LUSH product with fresh pomegranate juice.
Tender is the Night massage bar ($11.95 CAD / 60g) - this super-hydrating massage bar is a Valentine's Day veteran, previously in a heart shape. Murumuru and shea butters are scented with jasmine, vanilla, and ylang ylang. If you can't find this one in stores, don't fret: it's sticking around in the permanent line-up.
Neon Love soap ($6.95 CAD / 100g) - LUSH whipped up a brand new fragrance just for this soap bar, which uses bergamot, rosewood, cinnamon leaf oil, and passion fruit juice. Nourishing soya yogurt was added to the usual moisturizing rapeseed and coconut oils soap formula for a bar that's extra nice to skin.
Naturally, LUSH also has a few limited edition, delightfully-pink gift sets for you to choose from too, which feature a mix of permanent and Valentine's Day-only products. See all three (Toucan Love, Lots of Love, and Neon Love) here.
I received a few press samples to try out and will be sure to report back on my findings! Which Valentine's Day product caught your eye?
