Lush Mother's Day Collection 2015

Today a beautiful, bright box of Lush Mother's Day 2015 goodies landed on my doorstep and I couldn't wait to share the new collection. As you may or may not know I don't have a bath tub so all the lovely bath product testing falls on to my sister - it is a hard life eh? While she tests everything out here is a quick round up of what I was sent and my first impressions...

Lush Mother's Day Collection 2015

Lush Love You Mum Soap from £4.25

"Say it with flowers: this elegant, floral soap is made with mimosa and jasmine absolutes, and bergamot oil to uplift and refresh."

I seldom use solid soap, rather I reach for liquid hand soap, shower gel and what have you - I am going to make more of an effort to go old school and enjoy traditional soap. I may even pop into Lush and purchase a few bars for scattering throughout the house. Lush Love You Mum soap is rather floral in fragrance, it reminds me of a mild Spring day and would make a lovely gift for any loved one this coming Mothering Sunday. You could even purchase a large slice and cut it into smaller chunks and gift all those near and dear?

"Lovely in lilac, this super-scrummy, sweet and floral shower gel is filled with lustre for a touch of glamour."

At the moment I am not too sure how I feel about the fragrance of this shower gel, it smells rather chocolate yet fruity based to me. Isn't that the oddest combination? I can't decide if it is my cold playing tricks on me (most likely) or perhaps I need warm water to really make this product come to life in terms of scent. I am looking forward to trying this out tonight in the shower, I will use this all weekend long before popping up a full review.

"We've put our trust in the most famous mother of all - Mother Nature - and blended fresh strawberry juice with luscious butters to give you soft, scrummy-scented skin."

I should point out that I only have a small 50g tub in-case you thought the price was rather high for such a small tub. The one in-store and online for that matter is nearly five times as big! This is a rich
cocoa butter based body moisturiser that is enriched with fruit extracts to protect, moisturise and soothe the skin. It has a strange but pleasant fragrance - think fruity cocoa butter and you won't go far wrong. The texture is beautiful - creamy almost akin with the consistency of soufflé that instantly hydrates and sinks into the skin. I have only tested this on my hands but will say I am nothing short of impressed!

"Give us today our daily bath and deliver us from uncleanliness with delicate floral bubbles that unfurl like cherry blossoms in the spring."

A huge bubble bar that will last several baths, it smells utterly divine (get it?) - lightly floral yet with a hint of citrus. I think this will be a crowd pleaser and the item that sells out the quickest. Isn't the design fun? I realise it is meant to be a nod to Mary Mother of Christ but all I see is a Nun and at other times a screaming baby ha!

"Bursting with rose petals, this bomb is a floral spectacle in your bath. Soya milk powder blends with orange flower absolute, rosewood and Turkish rose oils for a beautiful, skin-softening experience."

This is so pretty and delicate to look at that I am almost glad that I don't have to be the one that has to dunk it into a bath. Apparently when added to water this not only softens the water as well as fragrancing but changes the water into a pale, pink hue. Lovely! I know not everyone enjoys rose scents but this is rather enjoyable - uplifting yet creamy at the same time. If you find rose fragrances to be a little too mature and musky this will be a pleasant surprise.

Look out for full reviews in the coming week or so!
Do any of the products appeal to you?
