Lush - Valentines Day & Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes

So, if many of you watched my last video on youtube, you saw the Valentines Day goodies I bought from Lush Cosmetics.  I love my Valentines Day products!  If many of you out there have not tried Lush, I suggest now is the time to do so.  Not only do they have new products for Valentines Day, but they also have a new kit out: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes.  The kit is $25 and is a great deal for the products you get inside.  It's also a great way to try out many of the products that Lush sells that are not bubble bars, shower gels, bath bomb, or soaps.  Included in this kit (here in the U.S. as it is slightly different in the UK) is:
1 Fresh Face Mask (of your choice)

1 Shampoo Puck (of your choice)
1 Sample of Handy Gurugu hand cream
1 Sample of Lemony Flutter cuticle butter
1 Sample of Fair Trade Foot Lotion
1 Vitamin C Toner Tab
1 Mini Sugar Scrub
1 Mini Each Peach Massage Bar
1 Moiturizer Sample (of your choice)
 I chose for my face mask Catastrophe Cosmetic.  I love this face mask. It was the first face mask I had ever bought from Lush and continues to be my favorite although I have tried almost all of them.  It contains fresh blueberries which are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to reduce inflammation and act as a mild antiseptic. It's also packed with soothing chamomile, Irish moss and almond oil that work with calamine to revive your skin.  For my moisturizer I chose Celestial.  This moisturizer is one that I have not tried before as I have tried many.  It is supposed to be great for dry, sensitive skin.  It contains vanilla water and almond milk to moisturize and soften the skin and give it a beautiful soft scent. Fresh dove orchid extract is included in the mixture as it is traditionally used to reduce inflammation.  For my shampoo puck, I chose my favorite! Seanik...this shampoo puck is great for my limp, lifeless hair.  I would highly reccommend this for anyone who has thin, fine hair.  Lush makes this shampoo full of fine sea salt for volume and Nori seaweed to soften and nourish your hair. It also contains lemon oil to cleanse the hair and make it shine. The scent to me smells of lemon and mimosa blossom...very much like the ocean - crisp and clean.  The other products in the kits are also really great products.  You should definitely check this out. It is well worth the price.

The Valentines Day products are really cute and smell delicious!  The first product I picked up was the "Love Soap".  This soap is in the shape of a heart and smells of the sex bomb bath bomb.  For those of you who have never tried Lush or don't know what that scent is, it's a slightly floral scent of jasmine, clary sage and ylang ylang.  This soap also has a little glitter in it and lathers really well.



The Ex Factor Bath Bomb is shaped like a gingerbread man, except he's BLUE!  And he wears his heart on his chest.  Very Cute!  He will turn your bathwater a beautiful blue color.  This bath bomb is scented just like Lush's Butterball Bath Bomb - vanilla musk and ylang ylang.  It's a sweet scent that I absolutely love.  I was slightly disappointed that this one doesn't contain cocoa butter to moisturize your skin as the Butterball does, but I'm a sucker for holiday themed anything, so I couldn't pass this up.


The Magic Mushroom Bubble Bar is my favorite of all of the Valentine's Day products at Lush. For those of you who don't know what a bubble bar is or how to use it. It's a solid bubble bath.  To use this, you just crumble a piece of it (as I do), or the whole thing, whatever you prefer, under running bath water.  The bubble that this specific bubble bar creates are so soft, moreso than any other bubble bar I've tried from Lush yet which was surprising to me.  The Magic Mushroom has two different scents.  The top of it is scented with Lush's famous Yummy Yummy Yummy shower gel scent, and the bottom smells of vanilla.  It a great combination strawberry, honey water, almond oil, and vanilla.  It smells so good!

There are also a lot of great specials going on at Lush at this time. Each store may have different promotions and specials so check with your local store.  The U.S. website http://www.lushusa.com/ still has a few holiday products at buy 1 get two free sale.  Take advantage of the sales when you can!

The only one of these products that I have tried is the Seanick shampoo puck, and I must say I really enjoyed it! I think that it smells great. I cannot wait to get my hands on this kit, it looks like a really cost effective way to try a lot of new products! Thanks for the info Toni!

I am looking forward to trying the Valentine's Day items, I just recently became a lushie and I love the holiday themed items. I also took advantage of the buy 1 get 2 free Christmas sale. I cannot wait for my package to arrive! :)

Everything sounds like it smells devine! I enjoy watching your lush hauls and reviews, although I admit, makes me a lil jealous! Haha Only because there's no lush in my neck of the woods. I so wish there was! I know you can order online, but when it comes to something as personal as scent, even with scent notes listed, I'm not comfortable ordering without having smelled them first. I'm very sensitive to scents and picky about them as well. There's A LOT that I just don't like. My loss I suppose! If I ever vacation in an area where there's a Lush, I'll certainly be making sure to swing by!

Dana said...

AH! I need those Valentine's Day products!

Amanda said...

The Valentines day things are great! I got 2 of the soaps and a handful of the Magic Mushrooms. Such a good price for the soaps and things too.

I'll be going to Lush saturday, they're having a party (Alice in Wonderland, I'm going at the Queen of heart haha) and I'll buy one of the mushroom (so cute O_O) and the love soap (as for the new products).

Kristin Hohenadel said...

It sounds like you take a lot of baths, so I can see how you could use it up before it expires.

Lana said...

I'm so glad that you like Magic Mushroom bubble bar! I just placed an online order from Lush UK & that was one of my purchases! (let's pray everything is packaged perfectly & nothing cracks/spills.. but I'm not holding my breath). I haven't smelled it yet, but I absolutely love Yummy Yummy Yummy so I'm hoping I'll love it!

floristwitheart said...

Jammie said...

sachelle said...

A Better Day said...

I really wanted to try that Mushroom bubblebar, but I bought so much lush in december, that I cut myself off, Luckily I'm going this weekend, hopefully they'll still have it.

sabrina said...

I love Catastrophe Cosmetic it really helps tone down my redness and its smells great.

I tried the Ex Factor and loved him. Gotta love butterball no matter what form it may take.

Michelle said...

Daisey said...

I really liked the smell of the magic mushroom when i smelled it in the store but for some reason i didn't buy it. I was really regretting not purchasing it and recently i discovered that it is still for sale on the lush uk site! it made me really excited to see and i will definitely be ordering at least two very soon. : )
