Lush Lovin'

Lush Haul by What Laura did Next
Sometimes, the only thing I need after a busy or stressful day is to wind down in the bath. The phone gets put on silent and left in the bedroom and, I a catch up on reading my favourite book. It really is a great way to unwind. 

I'm still a bit of a newbie when it comes to Lush. Gone are the days where I cross the street to avoid the overwhelming smell coming from their stores - you'll now find me diving in to the bath bombs, nose first and coming out with several products, covered in glitter and smelling like their stores. 

On a recent trip to London, I popped in to the new (and absolutely massive) Lush store on Oxford Street. Spread over three floors, this is their biggest store and even has the Lush Spa tucked away inside. They also have around 200 products that are exclusive to this store. Eventually, some of them will become available across the UK but, as I'm a slightly impatient girl, some of the exclusives made their way into my basket and to the till.

Pink Flamingo Reusable Bubble Bar - I mean, how could I not buy this? I'm a huge fan of the long, pink-legged birds so this was a must. Plus it smells amazing. 

Milky bath Bubble Bar - This comforting little milk bottle bubble bar is filled with uplifting orange oil and skimmed milk. A cocoa butter bottle top adds a little bit of extra softness. 

Flowering Tea Reusable Bubble Bar - I love a cup of tea so when I saw this, it went straight into my basket! Created to look like a tea bag, this will see you through a good 2-3 baths. Made from a combination of orange blossom and jasmine, I did find this a little overpowering when I used it so, it's one I probably won't pick up again. 

Double Vitality Bath Oil - These are a total new kid on the block. There were quite a few different versions of these, and at £2 - I could've easily got carried away! Made from two stars sandwiched together with a generous helping of essential oils and butters, the scent of lemon and peppermint oil is refreshing and is so lovely for an uplifting bath.
