HEY! So now i'm a fully fledged fifteen-year-old (try saying that five times fast) and i was lucky enough to get some lush-ious smelling bath-bombs from possibly my favourite smelling store, Lush. These are all from my big bro, who picked out all the bath-bombs himself, and let me just say, i am so impressed with the choices! All of these smell super fantastic and have been sitting in my bedroom just so my whole room can smell just like the inside of a Lush store. So i wanted to share these with you and give a few tips and pointers for next time you're at Lush

'The bouncing Butterball is chock with chips of cocoa butter to melt all over your hot body in warm water and smooth you all over like a master masseur. It will fizz joyously, scenting the water with sweet musk and vanilla and softening you up nicely.'
An all time favourite of mine the butterball smells absolutely divine and leaves your skin feeling as smooth as a baby's bottom! For a skin soothing and moisturising bath just pop in a butterball and relax in the sweet vanilla musk scent.

'Inspired by Japanese cherry blossoms that bloom in the spring, Sakura is our fragrant Bath Ballistic that brings the hopeful feeling of springtime to us year-round.  The gorgeous white Ballistic is speckled pink with hints of blue sea salt to represent soft-coloured cherry blossoms against the spring sky. The gentle fragrance of jasmine, mimosa and orange blossoms float up from the water and sweep you away to a place of beauty and ease. The soft fragrance lasts in your hair and on your skin so you can take Sakura’s peaceful feeling with you.'
Before i tested this one for myself i found myself binge watching Lush bath-bomb demos on youtube, the colours released into the water are so spectacular, and came across this one. The little orange blossoms fizzing out of the bath-bomb are so beautiful. But one thing you can't get from watching a video on a screen is the divine smell of cherry blossom flowers, yet another sweet fragrance (i love sickly sweet smells) and a great pick-me-up kind of bath.

'For liveliness and softer skin. If you’re the sort who lounges in bed, Avobath is what you need to get you moving in the morning. It’s a refreshing bath bomb with freshly mashed avocado and olive oil to treat your skin to a banquet, and lemongrass to stimulate sleepy brains. When you’re sluggish in the morning, get up and Avobath.'
I am yet to test this one out, but as a lover of the smell of avocado (not particularly the taste though, yuck) i have let this one sit on the bookshelf of my bedroom, filling my room of the subtle but refreshing smell. Avocado is a miracle worker for your skin, and leaves every inch of it smooth and nourished. Along with olive oil this is an al round skin refresher and moisture god.

Mask of Manaminty
'Deep cleansing, minty face and back pack. After an overnight flight, a marathon in a rabbit suit or a walk along the Marylebone Road during rush hour, do you feel a deep need to be scrubbed clean? Here's a cleansing mask to do exactly that; China clay and bentonite gel will pull the dirt from your pores, ground aduki beans and evening primrose seeds exfoliate surface skin cells, and peppermint oil will make you feel so fresh and minty that you'll forget you were ever grubby.'
If that description doesn't make you want to run to the nearest Lush store and buy a whole shelf of these face masks then i don't know what will. Take it from me, the most breakout prone, oily skinned, blemish faced person out there, this thing saves lives. Just from one use you can instantly notice the redness of breakouts has gone and the size had subsided dramatically. And if that still doesn't make you want it, it smells like mint, one of the nicest smells out there!

Sorry for the long rambly post, hope you enjoyed the post, much love. xx
P.S. shoutout to all my fellow lush lovers out there! #gonaked
