If you’re planning on travelling soon, or if you don’t like hoarding a million and one bottles of product in the shower, you need to get down to Lush and grab a few of their Rub Rub Rub Body Scrub Bars. They’ve quickly become something of a cult item in my house, and they are seriously oh-my-god amazing!
First off, I’m obsessed with the fact they they come in dinky little package-free squares which you can just pop into your suitcase or shower depending on where you are! Since I’m manically trying to get my skin summer-ready I went hard-core and brushed the bar upwards on dry skin. It’s surprisingly gentle on skin for something that’s such a great exfoliant, and I love the fact that it feels like it’s nourishing the skin as well as sloughing it off. The feel is down to the mix of sea salt to buff and Cupuacu Butter which are all natural, and are formulated to leave skin feeling incredibly soft.
I’m also absolutely in love with the scent of the Rub Rub Rub body scrub. Lush have included a mix of Jasmine and Orange Flower for their uplifting qualities. It smells amazing, clean, and almost baby powder like, and it has to be the easiest way to exfoliate I’ve come across!
Lush’s Rub Rub Rub Body Scrub is priced at £5.95 and is available here.
I know I’m not the only one that gets somewhat obsessed with Lush’s holiday offerings. I’ve bought gallons of the Snow Fairy shower gel over the years, and this year, I’ve become somewhat infatuated with the Snowman Kit.
The kit contains three colours of bubble bar (white, black and orange) and you can sculpt away to your hearts content. It’s actually ridiculously fun, and it’s perfect if your get bored during bubble baths. Since the bubble bars have a slight tendency to crumble, this probably isn’t a shower-staple, but I could literally spend hours creating little characters. The scent of the snowman is absolutely divine – rather than a typical winter-y spice or peppermint, Lush have plumped for a mix of Bergamot and Sicilian Lemon essential oils which smells so gorgeously light and fresh. What I’m even more impressed by is the kit’s multi use – you can use it as soap, crumbed into a bath as a bubble bar and even as shampoo, although I would be careful using the coloured portions on hair, as the dye does tend to get everywhere.
The Snowman Kit costs £5.00 and is available here
In the past couple of days, it’s really started to feel rather wintery. The temperature has dropped dramatically, and I’ve been planning Thanksgiving celebrations all week! To decompress I little, I added the adorable Ice Ice Baby Bath Mallow from Bomb Cosmetics into my bath last night. Unlike bath bombs, the Bath Mallow is chock full of Coco and Shea Butter to create a moisturising soak, and it has the loveliest sweet scent. Bomb Cosmetics describe it as Chocolate Mint, but for me it’s more of a warm vanilla.
The Bath Mallow costs £2.24 and is available here.
