Ok so Valentines Day is just around the corner and to make it even sweeter LUSH South Africa released their Valentines Collection for 2015 online just last week and believe you me, it is flying off the cyber space shelves. They still have stock left, so if you would like to stock up on your favourites there is still time to do so.
I was suffering from serious FOMO over here in Bahrain, and because we do not have a LUSH store on the island I started making serious plans on how I was going to get some over here, from lets face it, basically ANYWHERE… Luckily for little old me I came across an Instagram Shop called BH_LUSH and my prayers were answered! I immediately contacted them and placed my order which I would receive after 2 weeks, and it would be delivered straight to my door. Phew… crisis averted! I was ECSTATIC… Unicorn Horn would finally be mine *evil laugh* (I will however confess that they are not cheap, like most things here in the Middle East, especially when you compare it to SA, but all else considered, it was so worth it)
I am not a very big Valentines Day fan (I believe you should show the people you LOVE that you care about them ALL year round♥), but I do love all the prettiness that surrounds this day. Like all the beautiful stationary, nail art, make-up ideas, heart shaped chocolates, stuffed teddy bears and of course the LUSH Limited Edition that gets released every year… This year will be my FIRST time trying out the coveted Valentines Collection from LUSH and I have to tell you, I am super excited!
I picked up 4 goodies as I had to be very strict with myself not to end up with EVERYTHING! Yikes..
So today I have my mini haul all the way from the UK *wow* with my first impressions that I would like to share with you guys,
♥ Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar | Retails for BD6 / 100g | R45.00 in SA ♥
I remember seeing a picture of this on Pink Peonies Blog’s Twitter Page and wishing that I could get my little paws on it. I have to admit, I am quite new to LUSH, so for me this was like confetti to my eyes and I immediately fell in love. The shape and colours remind me of the play dough we used to model with when we were kids and this makes me even more excited about this little guy. The stars on my UNI-HORN got a little lost in transportation, but I can live with that. It has the most addictive Lavender smell and you can also pick up whiffs of Neroli and Ylang Ylang Oil. Lavender oil is really good to help you relax and unwind after a long day, and although I never really used to like it, I find myself strangely attracted to the scent these days. Hopefully after a nice bath with this beauty I will drift off into a restful sleep as I have been suffering from bad insomnia these past couple of weeks.
♥ Floating Flower Bath Bomb | Retails for BD 5 / 100g | R45.50 in SA ♥
Floating flower reminds me of the water lilies that you usually see in Disney movies (think Little Mermaid here) and this makes me giddy with excitement, because I am such a sucker for Disney movies! Just ask my hubby, he will gladly confirm… The first thing I noticed when I smelled this gorgeous flower (see what I did there), was that it smelled of Jasmine, which has strangely enough become one of my favourite scents. It is not very overpowering, but soft and sensual. Plus seeing as the Jasmine flower is known for opening up to release it’s scent at night, it’s Perfect for a Pre-Valentines date soak ♥
♥ Heart Throb Bubbleroon | Retails for BD 6 / 100g | R54.50 in SA ♥
This gold-pixie-dusted red heart macaron lookalike bubble bar is enough to get my heart racing I tell you. The seductive, sweet but slightly spicy scent of Geranium is very distinct is this little guy with a touch of Vanilla… YUM! Split it in half and you have enough “heart” for two baths, or share it with a loved one, it is the month of LOVE after all. This bubble bar is sure to leave you begging for more.
♥ Prince Charming Shower Gel | Retails for BD12 / 250g (Medium Size) | R145.00 /250g in SA ♥
This will also be my first time using any of the LUSH shower gels and I have to say, I have high hopes for Prince Charming! This hot pink shower gel (although it looks a bit more red in some of the photos, sorry guys) reminds me of a Grapefruit… I don’t know why, but that is what I smell when I take a whiff of this bad boy. Armed with Marshmallow Root (I know right *yummy*), Fair Trade Vanilla Pod and Fresh Organic Pomegranate juice you are definitely in for a treat. And who knows, you might just find your very own Prince Charming after indulging in this one *wink-wink*
The Valentines 2015 Collection is currently still available online at LUSH SA as well as in-stores (Cavendish, V&A Waterfront, Canal Walk and Gateway) or if you are in Bahrain contact Bahrain Lush either on Instagram here or on WhatsApp +973 3310 0693
I really ♥ this years collection and only wish that I could have picked up ALL the goodies, but hey, there is always next year, right?
What did you guys get?
Hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day ♥
