Lush Cosmetics Product Review: The Experimenter 

  


The Experimenter Bath Bomb


  


This has a really strong smell, which I must admit when it first arrived I wasn’t particularly keen on. 

However I was so excited that it had finally appeared on the Lush website as its previously been a Oxford street exclusive. 

As soon as it hit the water, the smell seemed to immediately change. Into more of a floral and musk type smell. It actually reminded me of Ylang Ylang incense sticks! 

  


As you can see in the video, the second you drop it into the water, it gives off the most beautiful rainbow of colour. It also makes a crackling type noise which is something I haven’t experienced before from their bath bomb range. 

   

 

Once it has disolved, the water is a deep purple. If you use a bubble bar alongside prior to putting the bomb in, the colours will rest on the bubbles and last a bit longer. 

The smell remains on your skin once you are out the bath and have dried off. It also leaves a very light shimmer on your skin as it has some gold glitter in it, but nothing like the Pheonix Rising bath bomb, where it looks like you have bathed in a tub of glitter 😏


Would I recommend it? 


Most definitely, it’s the most colourful bath bomb I’ve tried from their collection so far, in fact nothing quite comes close to it. 

Kids will love it too because of how bright it is!

Mini lush Haul 😍😍

  

Morning! 

I was super excited that I checked Lush online at the weekend, as some of the products that were Oxford street exclusives had been made available for purchase 😀 

Sadly I couldn’t afford to get all of them this week, with the run up to Xmas we are obviously getting all the presents in, but I did get the main ones I wanted to try! YAY

So here’s what I ordered: 

The Comforter Shower Cream

The comforter bubble bar is my absolute favourite. Smells like sherbet 💕💕 can’t wait to try this. 

Pink flamingo reusable bubble bar 

Smells like a summery cocktail! I must admit I was attracted to this just because simply it was a flamingo 😏

Frozen Bath bomb 

One for the kids! I always buy them something in my hauls and have been desperate to get this one. 

Experimenter Bath bomb 

Just because it’s so colourful!! Looks amazing. 

Intergalactic Bath bomb 

Smells divine and looks beautiful! 


 


Will be doing a separate blog post to review about these in the coming weeks! So keep an eye out. 

Also while I’m here, a special thanks to my good friend Rhi, who sent me this beautiful Gift set from Lush last week.  

I hadn’t tried either of the products before but they smell absolutely amazing! The soap leaves a lasting smell on my skin for ages! 


   

If you have tried any of them let me know what you thought in the comments below! 

Thanks for reading.

Glossy box unboxing (July Edition) 

  


Salut! 

It’s finally here! I feel like I’ve been waiting FOREVER. But it was SO worth the wait. 

The box is super duper pretty this month as its a French edition. And I think this is the first glossy box where I’m super excited to try everything in it! 


The box ❤️

It’s so cute, I adore the illustrations on it. I’m not sure about anyone else but I use my boxes to store my excess makeup in. I was pretty devastated that I had to throw out my Marilyn box from the Hollywood edition, because it was covered in makeup. But this box far surpasses that one anyway! Yay!    

   

What’s in it? 


Noxidoxi – Enhancing serum base 

Lollipops – Lip Balm Delicieuse 

Teoxane Cosmeceuticals – Perfect skin Refiner 

Yves Rocher – Comme use evidence eau de parfum

Glossybox exclusive Travel pouch

  

 

What I’m excited to try! 

I love the whole thing if I’m honest. But I’m most excited about the perfume and the perfect skin refiner. 

I also absolutely love the little travel bag. It’s gorgeous!!! 


If you haven’t already subscribed to Glossybox, it’s most certainly worth £13.50 per month. You can browse their website and sign up here >> Glossy box


Thanks for reading my lovelies. I can’t wait to review these and tell you all about them in future blogs!! 

Viva la France! 

4 DIY Facemasks 💕💕💕

  


My skin just has a mind of its own. Some days it’s dry others it’s oily. It’s super sensitive so I’m prone to blemishes and can sometimes have reactions to different types of makeup. 

Like with others things I’ve posted, I’ve been told about different DIY treatments to try and help several skin types. I’ve tried them all previously and have found them gentle on my skin. 

So here’s a list of a few that I love! 


Oily skin

Egg white mask


Egg whites help tighten your pores, as they contain protein that will help replenish your skin.  They also help to remove any excess oil, making your skin blemish free. 

Blend egg white and lemon together for a couple of seconds, apply the paste to dry skin and leave on for 15 minutes. Wash off with Luke warm water.  
 
Pimple and excessive oily skin

Aspirin Mask


This is one I used many years ago, unfortunately you can’t use this if you are allergic to aspirin or can’t take aspirin for some other reason. I have a platelet disorder now, so can no longer use it. 

This mask is great for soothing your skin, the acid present in the pill is a great anti acne product.

Crush the pill and add a little water to make a paste, not too much as if it’s too watery you won’t be able to apply it properly. You can thicken it by adding a little bit of honey. 

Apply to full face and leave on for 10 minutes. Wash off with Luke warm water.  
 
Dull skin 

Banana mask 


Take 2 bananas, mash them until they form a paste. Add 2 tbsp of honey or extra nourishment. 

Apply the mask on a dry face and leave for 10 minutes. Wash off with Luke warm water.  
 

Dry skin

Avocado mask 


Mash half an avacado until you have a thick consistency. Mix 1 tbsp of honey and 1tbsp of rose water and add it to the avacado mixture. Mix into a paste, then apply it to your dry face. Leave on for 15 minutes. Wash off with Luke warm water. 

If your skin is extra dry, you can use olive oil in replace of rose water.  
 

Thanks for reading lovelies. Hope you are finding these types of posts interesting! 

Let me know if you have tried any of these before and if they worked for you.

Beauty Product Review: Glam Glow 

  
I am absolutely HORRIFIED to find that I’m nearly finished both tubs of my Glam Glow. 

I’ve been using them both every few days or when I have a particularly bad break out of face demons, and I hadn’t realised till last night how little I have left. 

What is good though, is that I feel now that I have used them for quite a while I can give a proper review. 

Super mud clearing treatment (white tub) 

This is my favourite out of the 2. I’ve never found a product that reduces redness so quickly, not only that it dries my spots out and seems to smooth any bumpiness on my face. 

I generally apply it whilst I’m in the bath, so that the heat has opened my pours. And then wash it off when I get out. It smells lovely too, a bit like mint and tea tree! 

Apply it like you would any face mask, can be a bit messy and be sure to keep it away from your eyes. Make sure your face is entirely covered, you don’t need to use a huge amount of this product for coverage. 


Youth mud – Tingle exfoliate treatment 

I do love this product, but it’s more for exfoliating and it gives you a natural, youthful glow. 

I have used this on different days to the Super mud, so I can happily say that I do think this also helps with redness but not so much spots. 

It does leave my face soft and fresh though which is great. I sometimes do a mask in the morning using this one as I find that if I’m having a particularly bad skin day, this helps prep my skin for makeup. 


 
I will most defiantly be buying these 2 again. They are pricey but sometimes you can get the double pack, like I did, on offer around Xmas time from Marks and Spencer’s and I’m sure other places. 

I paid £40 for the 2. The Supermud is the largest tub, but you can get them vice versa. 

Thanks for reading lovelies! Let me know if you have tried Glam Glow before and what your opinion is on it.

Mini Lush Haul 💕💕💕

  

It’s that time again! My obsession is slowly getting out of hand.
