Happy Easter Sunday everyone!
My last bath was luxurious. I used two bubble bars, a melt and two bombs. If you’ve got a large Lush collection and feel like mixing things up, I suggest you do it.
I have to say that I looovvvee the Mothers day scents. They all smell comforting and sweet, just like a mothers love. This collection is very floral, although the flower scent varies by product, all the bath products I’ve used so far included orange fragrance.
I’ve tried three of the mothers day bath product so far: Mother superior bath bomb, Rose Bombshell bath bomb, and Secret Garden bath bomb. This collection will be in North American stores soon, if it isn’t already, but I bought mine a long time ago when UK mothers day was happening in February and early March.
I’ve already reviewed Mother Superior, for a little recap the smell is one of my favourite Lush scents so far. It includes jasmine, ylang ylang and orange blossom. Read more about it by clicking on the link above.
Rose Bombshell was a great addition to my luxury bath. It fizzes on the surface and creates bubbles, then explodes pink and rose pedals in the middle. The smell is very soft and sweet and relaxing. Unlike Rose Queen that has a bite to it thanks to the Cistus oil , “Soy milk powder creates creamy, skin-softening waters, and the original fragrance of rose oil, rosewood and orange flower absolute carries your troubles far, far away.” Lush.ca
I loved the rose pedals although soft smells like this tend to get lost in the water, so it was a little too subtle. It’s insides turned the bath pink and I especially liked the addition of bubbles on the surface which turned swirls of white and pink when the centre exploded.
Secret garden smells just as nice as mother superior and leaves your tub all green! It has flower pedals inside as well but I found them annoying because they were thin and stuck all over my tub. I don’t think the pedals were totally necessary because the smell and feel of this bomb was enough for me.
This took ages to fizzle out and had a yellow explosion on the inside. I was totally surprised, even though I had seen it on Instagram more then once, I somehow missed it. The smell of this combined with Mother Superior left me floating on a cloud of relaxed.
All in all, I give the Mothers day collection two thumbs up. I am looking forward to buying the soap called Love You Mom which has jasmine and mimosa absolute. I’m running low on my Hot Toddy soap and in the market for a new one. I also want to try the Rose bubble bar which has cocoa butter in it, awesome, and a lemon rose scent.
The mothers day line is way more up my alley and I have to say I’ve been disappointed with the Easter collection. If you haven’t had a chance to read my Easter Collection review, have a look. I made a few edits to it since it was published because I’d mussed over the experience a bit and felt that my love for Lush had stood in the way of an honest review. It’s sad because I was so exited for the easter line. Each line tends to have some really killer items and some not so good ones, but the Easter line was fairly boring all around. Although I still have Hoppity Poppity to try, so I’ll let you know how that goes.
Happy Easter to you all!
