That period of coming into spring is my absolute favourite time of year. I adore bunnies and pastels and the scents and associations of blossoming into beautiful Spring. So it was an absolute joy to celebrate and herald the start of my favourite season with an evening at LUSH Bournemouth thanks to Bournemouth Bloggers showcasing both Mother’s Day and Easter collections.
As I’ve discussed before whenever I have the pleasure of attending events with not just LUSH Bournemouth, but any LUSH store, this is always such a special trip down memory lane for me because LUSH was my very first job after leaving school in 2006, and I enjoyed working there all throughout my studies right up until University so it’s a spot that really feels like home to me.
LUSH events, and in fact a LUSH environment is always my favourite place to be. You can guarantee that being surrounded in this atmosphere is full of so much joy, creativity and openness. Much like my beloved Spring season. I’m truly overwhelmed with how many incredible things are coming into stores for the new season and how much the naked collection is blossoming.
Luxury Hand & Arm Massage
I started my evening with a
But despite the name, there is no honey in this massage bar, and instead, it’s a vegan massage bar featuring agave syrup and vegan dark chocolate. This is then nestled in with almond and Fair Trade cocoa butter for a richly hydrating hug, while the sweet embrace of
Making Sex Bomb Bath Ballistic
Next up was trying our hand at making the iconic ‘Sex Bomb’ bath ballistic! Growing up I was actually obsessed with making bath bombs, and I still love making them now, so it was really fun to see how LUSH make them as theirs, of course, are so well-known and adored all over the world! One of the most well-loved and well-known of them all is ‘Sex Bomb’ with a heady scent of Jasmine mixed with ylang-ylang and clary sage that will soon have you relaxed and feeling romantic. The extra special touch is a girly pink rose in the
How To Make Angels on Bare Skin
To finish the fun for a showcase of how to make the products, there was a demo of the truly iconic facial cleanser Angels On Bare Skin. To me, this cleanser is one of the most wonderful things LUSH make. Based on a Medieval recipe, this truly would have been a skincare item used by the angels, of that I’m sure! The famous recipe is made from a heavenly balance of lavender that entwines with restorative blue chamomile and rich kaolin. To use, you add a pea-sized amount to your hand, mix with a little water to make a milky paste, and then massage that into the skin. The finely ground almonds exfoliate while lavender and rose will make the skin feel enchantingly tranquil.
LUSH Mother’s Day Collection
Mum’s deserve pampering more than anyone, and I know mine certainly does! I was so happy she could be by my side at this event and that I could show her all the gorgeous new things. There are truly some gorgeous new products that form the Mother’s Day collection.
I’m so in love with the trio of new flower inspired bath bombs with touching notes inside. LUSH used to do this a lot in the days I worked there and I’m so happy it’s coming back into their new ranges. You have Marigold Flower, Chamomile Flower, and finally Floating Flower to pick from that every mum or mother figure in your life would just adore. I plan on stocking up myself this season for some most needed flower power indulgence! My heart is also in a flutter for the gorgeous Rose Butterfly bath bomb. Such prettiness!
The Goddess Bath range has also been vastly expanded to
LUSH Easter Collection
From Mother’s Day to hopping into Easter, the LUSH Easter collection never ever fails to put a spring in my step. As some of you may or may not know, bunnies are my whole entire life (and yes, that’s why I have the Miffy obsession haha) so a season dedicated to seeing the bunny everywhere is like Christmas for me!
There’s a lot of super-sized bath bombs this season! Firstly the Bunny Bomb Bomb infused with exotic Brazilian orange and then some popping candy that adds an extra layer of sensory sweetness and indulgence. There’s then the Free Ranger with bergamot oil and blackcurrant absolute so you can ensure you or someone else are in for some fruity fun! And finally, the
Something that totally stole my heart was the two darling little bunny body scrubs! There’s a Bunny Cocoa Sugar Scrub, with a heavenly chocolate scent, or a little vanilla coco sister called Bunny Coco Sugar Scrub. I’m just head over heels in love with them both! They are just the sweetest additions! Other things that caught my eye were the Carrot Cake Lip Scrub, the Cream Egg with a fresh scrumptious scent of cocoa and peppermint. This really is such a gorgeous Easter Collection and LUSH as always have totally surpassed themselves on this one!
From all that excitement and a lovely look as to what the new season will bring the night ended. So as always a huge thank you to LUSH Bournemouth for having me! I hope that my Dorset friends can be delighted by the gorgeous new collection from the beautiful Bournemouth sales assistants, or seek comfort and open arms in your nearby LUSH shop.
