When a few treats from Lush arrived and I spotted these three little carrots, I just couldn’t resist but think about including the bunnies in the blog photos for them somehow. But do you know how awkward it is to try and lure a bunny onto a white rug with a real carrot to casually nibble this alongside a bunch of fake carrots?! Surprisingly hard… but I can now check that off the bucket list (kidding, that definitely wasn’t on there – but I can put this one down on the list of ‘odd things I’ve done for my blog’). The point being, to take a look at some of the Lush Easter offerings* for this year…
So, whilst Chip enjoys the real carrot…lets take a look at the other goodies! Also…ignore the fact that two out of three of the carrots were broken, they arrived like that so I just went with it!
Starting at the top with the orange square – this is the ‘Lush Carrot Soap’, apparently a cross section of a larger carrot (which I’m sure you can see in store? It does contain carrot oil, but doesn’t smell of carrot – more sweet than that. I’m not a huge soap fan, but this one does smell really nice. Then there’s the bunch of carrots – these are reusable bubble bars, that again – don’t smell of carrot – instead they’re more citrussy and fresh.
Then there’s the Golden Egg – this is apparently a mix of a bubble bar and a bath bomb (amazing) that smells like Honey I washed the kids – a lush favourite. My only issue – I really hate glitter for a bath. I might be alone in this, but the idea of bathing in glitter and leaving a bath covered in sparkle (or having to clean the tub post-soak) just doesn’t appeal in the slightest. The fact that there was glitter everywhere after just taking a few photos of this one does put me off putting it into the bath – despite how pretty it is (and how the bath bomb/bath melt combo really does sound amazing).
Finally there’s the Brightside Bubble Bar – now we’re talking. This is so my sort of lush product. My all time favourite is The Comforter – and this is basically along those lines, but with a citrus/mandarin scent to it – totally my sort of thing. The glitter on this has purely rubbed off from that darn golden egg and it’s glitter-spray. So this is the one I’m most looking forward too (the size of these also mean good value for money too).
So there’s a little run down of what we have from Lush for Easter – some lovely bits. To be honest – all a big excuse to stage a mini photo shoot with the bunny… *no rabbits were harmed in the writing of this blog post (she was pretty happy with her carrot).
