Lush: My First Ever Products

Left to right: The Big Blue, Lover Lamp, Fizzbanger and Avobath

Its no secret in the blogging community that LUSH products are essentially a cult brand with most bloggers owning a least one Lush product. I personally wasn't in the club and didn't own any of their products and in all honesty I thought they were probably over-hyped and overrated. After all they are just bath bombs... right? Nope. Wrong. I was wrong, I was so, so wrong.

My wonderful husband surprised me with these beautiful bath bombs after work one day last week and I will admit that my first reaction was along the lines of why are we spending this much money on bath bombs, rather than one of excitement - dont get me wrong, I was super excited to get a a present and grateful for the surprise but as students we have to limit our luxuries!

He bought these in an effort to encourage me to take some down time for myself and a have a break from all of the dissertation work I have been doing lately and it was a great way to get the message across and remind me how important me time is. When I opened the bag to have a look what was in it, I was absolutely blown away by that gorgeous perfumey smell that most Lush users will be familiar with. Never in my life have I smelt bath bombs this good before.

I opened each bag and had a smell of each bath bomb, as you do, and just couldn't believe how scented they were - or how heavy! I was definitely impressed so decided to try one that night by having a Lush Lottery... i.e dipping into the bag and picking out a random one to try. The four he bought were The Big Blue, Lover Lamp, Fizzbanger and Avobath. From those, I picked out The Big Blue and after using it in my bath I have to hold my hands up and say I am officially a Lush product lover but I won't go into too much detail here as I am planning on individually reviewing each product!

I am honestly so pleased I was wrong, and so pleased Jason surprised me with a bag of these little beauties! I've gone from being someone who didn't really rate all these extra products for bathtime to someone who's wishlist of bath bombs and scrubs is longer than my arm!

I am officially a Lush fan, and can't wait to share my first impressions and opinions with you all!!

Much love,


  1. Big Blue is one of my all time lush favourites! If you liked that I'd definitely recommend trying Intergalactic :) Lovely post and I hope you enjoy all the bath bombs! xx
