Bubblegum is LUSH

Hey Everyone!

You will know if you follow me on instagram (julz_obsessions - hint) or youtube (Julz' Obsessions - hint hint) that a few weeks ago I purchased my first products from Lush. Looking back, I find it quite odd that I've never tried any of their products as I am quite into bath products on the whole. If you know Lush you'll know that they offer an endless variety of scents, but I decided to pick up a selection of bubblegum themed products, and boy am I glad I did!
Snow Fairy Limited Edition Shower Gel 250g- RRP £6.25
Partly due to the hype and partly due to the fact I can't resist a yummy smelling product, I got Snow Fairy. Getting straight to the point: this is amazing. The packaging is really bright and cute. The bubblegum scent literally makes you want to eat it and it actually looks really pretty- a kind of salmony pink with blue sparkle. I get on really well with the formula- it lathers well and you don't need a lot (meaning hopefully it will last me till next Christmas when it reappears in store!) Its not the most affordable shower gel I've ever bought, but I made an exception because its just so luxurious.

Magic Wand Limited Edition Bubble Bar- RRP £4.95
This is simply a star product (excuse the bad joke)- its pretty, smells amazing and actually works. My bath taps have really weird pressure meaning bubbles are usually impossible- but not with this! I actually get a proper bubble bath (no bubble beards- honest ;-) ) and the most amazing thing ever- the water turns pink! I was so, so amazed when I first used this- it was definitely the best bath I'd ever had. The scent is a very powerful bubblegum and it makes my whole upstairs smell amazing. I was a bit apprehensive to spend nearly £5 on something that I could only get a few uses out of but so far I've used it 3 or 4 times and I think I'll get another 1 or 2. It is definitely my favourite Lush product. And check out my amazing bath here.

Bubblegum Lip Scrub- RRP £5.25
Ok I know this isn't technically one of the seasonal limited edition Lush products but I thought since its bubblegum too I could include it in this post! Until now, for lip exfoliation I have simply used my tooth brush (I still think this is a good technique) but I am a sucker for a product and when I tried this I knew I had to get it. Essentially its just dyed sugar, but it is a great pick me up for chapped, flaky winter lips. You rub it all over your lips then lick it off. Not only does it get rid of those dead cells, it tastes amazing! I frequently have the urge just to snack on it! The only thing I don't like about this product is, for want of a better word, its a bit 'crummy'. Its a dry formula so it can sometimes drop on the journey from the pot to your lips. Other than that though, I think this product is really good and will last me ages as you use a small amount at a time.

What are your favourite Lush products? I want to try more!
