From the limited edition Valentine’s ‘14 line. This huge bomb is a good value, as it’s good for 3 baths. The scent is a tad perfumey for my tastes but it lingers nicely and it’s a fun bomb that turns the water pink, and has little surprises inside that differ depending on which piece you use (there’s a smaller, heart shaped bomb inside). I probably wouldn’t purchase again.
Shoot for the Stars Bath Bomb
Holy moly this baby (from Christmas ‘13) is glorious. It’s Honey I Washed the Kids Scented, which is a definite favorite for me. Unfortunately once the bomb dissolved the scent was barely there. However, that’s the only negative for this bomb. This slow fizzer puts on a seriously stunning show. This bomb leaves you with dark indigo water with lots of silver sparkles, and a layer of super soft whitish-pink foam on top. The way the center of the bomb fizzes out faster than the inside creates beautiful swirls of foam and glitter. I also found this bomb to be pretty moisturizing. I will definitely buy it again if it show up next year!
Lovely Jubblies Breast Cream - $25.95/3.5 oz.
I don’t know if it’s just the extra harsh winter or what, but my skin has been extra sensitive lately. Eucerin saved my elbows, but wasn’t quite doing it for my dry, itchy boobies. I’ve been wanting to sample Lovely Jubblies for a while, so I finally decided now was the time. It has seriously saved my tatas. It’s intended as more of a firming cream, and since my bust is on the smaller side I haven’t noticed a whole lot of that happening, but I do have some minor stretch marks that appear to be fading. Lovely Jubblies also smells nice, and it feels like a fancy treat to use it. I’m not sure I would shell out for a full pot of it, but if my skin’s sensitivity keeps up as the weather warms up I will.
I’m kind of indifferent to the jasmine scent of this, but I do like that is a fairly strong scent that lingers after the bath. Half the bar produced lots of lovely soft bubbles, that lasted a surprisingly long time. That’s about all I have to say about that.
Santa’s Lip Scrub - $8.95
Tastes yummy (like cherry cola with the tinniest hint of soap), but I prefer Popcorn from last year. Because of the red color this also tends to be a little messier stain a bit. Not a bad product, but I wouldn’t purchase again.
Honey I Washed the Kids soap - $7.95/3.5 oz.
I got a small chunk in a Mr. Bumble gift, but I may have to buy more! I love the sweet toffee smell, and the soap is very soft and moisturizing. Like I always say, I just wish it lingered more!
Toffee scented (a la Honey I Washed the Kids), but to me it mostly just smells like butter. Which is a good thing. I’ve been using about 1/4 of the tube at a time as bubble bath. It makes a decent amount of bubbles that linger, and they are super soft. It also smells amazing, but it’s pretty subtle, and doesn’t really linger. The water has a slight gold sheen, but it’s not too glittery. All in all I think I would purchase again, as it’s a good value.
Luxury LUSH Pud Bath Bomb - $6.95
This bomb has Twilight’s scent, which I am pretty indifferent about. I also find it to be one of the subtler scents, so scented candles are necessary to supplement the smell goods! Visually though, this bomb is absolutely stunning. The dots float around for a while and the water is magenta. It’s like bathing in fruit punch, it’s glorious! I only wish that it was fruity scented to match the bright colors of the bomb.
Celebrate Body Lotion - $29.95
I just got a sample of this (my shop was actually sold out when I went in), but I’m glad I did. This is my first experience with LUSH’s lotions other than trying them in the store. This lotion has a “citrus champagne” scent, that is supposed to be the same as the Golden Wonder bath bomb. The lotion smells a lot stronger than the bomb, and as a lover of citrus scents, I think it’s amazing. However, the lotion is pretty heavy duty and took a long time to sink in, and honestly left me feeling a little greasy. Love the scent, but overall wouldn’t purchase the full size.
I picked up the Revlon matte thingy in sultry too since I love their balm stains but then I heard it was drying & I have a hard enough time keeping my lips moisturized as is. So I was thinking about returning it. :( When you get a chance to try them out you should let us know what you think? :D
Will do! I tried them on but I didn’t leave them for more than a few minutes. My initial impression was that they seem the same as the Kissable line, which is kind of moisturizing but not very.
In case you don’t exfoliate your lips already, I also definitely recommend that! You can use a sugar scrub or just a toothbrush (I tend to do it when I brush my teeth in the morning). I follow that up with a balm and I let that sink in while I get ready. I do my lips last and before I apply whatever I’m going to wear that day I blot off the excess balm if there’s any left. I get much better results that way!
