The second item that I chose from the Lush Valentine’s Day collection was the Close to You scrumptious vanilla bar. I am VERY on the fence about this particular item. It is a smooshable massage bar that is supposed to be excellent for one long entire body massage. I absolutely LOVED the scent, which was described as shortbread and raspberry jam. However, I could not get past the bright pink tint that the massage bar put on everything I owned. My hands could not be washed free of the pink and my bathrobe met a similar pink fate. On the bright side, all clothing that was covered in odd pink spots came clean in the washing machine. Although there was no permanent damage, I won’t be purchasing the colored concoction from next year’s collection for fear of the color pink attacking me again.
While undeniably belated, I feel it is my duty to showcase the Valentine’s Day Lush haul that I picked up. I chose three items from their Valentine’s day selections, opting out of getting the shower gel (I have way too many at the moment) and the bar soap. I chose instead two of their themed massage bars and one LARGE Bath Bomb.
Tender is the Night ($11.95)
The first item that I chose was the Tender is the Night massage bar. Made with the scent of Vanilla Orchid, this massage bar is large in size and the scent reminds me of another Lush favorite, the ‘Heavanilli’ massage bar. What’s great about this bar versus the Heavanilli is that there is no red stain to rub off on you or your clothes while you massage! The scent of vanilla and ylang ylang make this the perfect after bath treat for a pamper evening in and the size makes sure it will endure for many massages to come!
Close to You ($7.95)
Love Locket ($10.95)
Saving the best for last gives you Lush’s Love Locket bath bomb! While this bomb is pricy at $10.95, it can be broken up into three different baths, which puts each bomb at a little around $3.60 which is a bath bomb bargain! I’m a girl who loves surprises so I could barely wait to get home and crack my bomb open to see what was shaking around inside. I used a knife to carefully cut open this bomb around the edges to discover a teeny heart bomb inside! The lovely scents of jasmine, vanilla and neroli put you in the mood for love as the agar seaweed pink hearts escape and float around you as your bomb whizzes around the tub! I was definitely in love with this pretty pink bath bomb!
