Happy Birthday to me! My 19th birthday has come and gone, and I thought I’d share some of my celebratory cheer with you guys. First up, Rosie: my Lush gift box. If I haven’t gushed about it already, I absolutely adore Lush! During my first visit to Lush, I could barely stand all the overpowering scent and I only really liked the sweet, vanilla, creamy smells. Now when I visit I can hardly contain myself, squishing my nose into everything!
I feel like my sense of smell has matured somewhat and I’m able to appreciate a wider variety of scents. Even so, it takes all the strength I have not to spend my entire paycheck in one go and leave with glorious armfuls of soaps and creams!
I’m really glad this Lush gift box was given to me because I would never have chosen any rose-based products on my own. I’ve never really taken a shining to that dried rose smell… however I was pleasantly surprised by these! Missing from the photo is the Rose Queen Ballistic Bath Bomb, I couldn’t help myself and had a bath with it right away! A detailed review of my delicious Rose Queen bath is coming soon.
In this box comes 3 products (Not including the Bath Bomb):
1. Amandopondo Bubble Bar
I’m very excited for this one! The first smell to hit you is a big whiff of lemons, then come the rose undertones. The Lush website promises that I will have an exorbitant amount of bubbles if I use the whole thing at once, and boy, do I love a good bubble bath. If I don’t get completely covered in bubbles so that only my head sticks out (like the movies!) I’m going to be pretty disappointed! Amandopondo looks like a citrusy, rosy delight and I can’t wait to try it! In fact, it’s cold and rainy and overcast today, which sounds like perfect bubble bath weather to me…
Buy Amandopondo Here!
Ignore my ugly chipped nails in the photos…!
2. Rose Jam Bubbleroon
This pink little gem is adorable! Shaped like a macaroon and cute as a button, I’m looking forward to this bath. The smell is like a sweet rosy jam (well, that’s the name) with shae butter for a creamy addition and some lemon undertones.The smell reminds me of those hidden little gift shops in laneways that sell trinkets and crystals and incense.
Because of the shape, it can easily be broken in two and used for two baths! You can cut or break any bubble bars to use more than once, but I find it a bit of a hassle trying to crack these tough, crumbly nuts.
This one isn’t available on the Australian Lush website, but I’ve seen it in-store before, so just pop into your local Lush store and see if they have any in stock.
3. Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner
Now I’m a little confused about this one… do I use it in the shower? Or after? Either way, this body conditioner is so luxurious and creamy, I want to slather the whole jar on my body right now!
The smell is exactly the same as the rose jam bubbleroon, only creamier. I’ve put it on my dry skin like a body lotion and the smell is delicious! However, the name “conditioner” seems to imply that it be used in the shower… well it’s a delicious product anyway and I’m seriously considering buying the full-sized tub when I run out.
The full-sized 225gm tub is $32.50 and can be bought on the Lush website here!
All the products here as well as the Rose Queen Bath Bomb can be purchased together in this lush gift box for $24.95 at your local Lush store or on the website here. It comes in a cute little box with pretty, floral wrapping paper and it would be the absolute perfect gift for a birthday or the not-so-far-away Christmas if you love sweet, rosy smells!
So, have you tried any of these? Let me know in the comments below!
