Get LUSHious For Your Valentine's Day Date With Lush Cosmetics!

We came up with an AWESOME and FUN Valentine bath cocktail to help you get ready for the big date! We have also included a few other products to get your skin smelling and feeling sweet and soft!

The first product we chose for our cocktail is the Amandopondo bubble bar. This is a rose-scented bar with lemon and orange oils. Break this up and run under the bath water. Next drop the Sex Bomb bath bomb into your bath. This is a mixture of jasmine and floral scents and it leaves your water with swirls of pinks and purples. Then use Love Soap, an exclusive LUSH valentine soap, which smells alot like Sex Bomb and is shaped into the cutest little red heart! This has clary sage in it to decrease tension and is great for lathering! Next, exfoliate with Sugar Babe. This is a sugar scrub with a coconut oil center and has a flowery/honey-like smell. The buttercream Ring of Roses comes next. Don't you just love these names? This is very mosturizing and great for the dry skin we all tend to get in the winter. Another great use for this is to use it as a shaving gel! How cool is that?!? After your luscious bath is finished, you can then use Heavanilli massage bar to help add a little more moisture to your skin. This has a yummy vanilla and cocoa butter scent that really lingers on your skin. And for the finishing touch- Vanillary solid perfume. This is a mixture of vanilla and jasmine. Dab a little behind your ears and onto your wrists for a subtle, romantic scent. Ta da! You're done and left smelling and feeling absolutely LUSHious!

LUSH Mask of Magnaminty and Toner Tabs Review and How To Use

Let us start out by saying that we both LOVE Lush! The company doesn't test on animals and they go to great lengths to be enviornmentally friendly. All of their products are so fun and colorful and relatively inexpensive. Who wouldn't want to support a company that is so awesome?

For an at home spa day we like to start by using the toner tabs. There are four different types:
Vitamin C- good for dry and mature skin
Vitamin E- good for happy, balanced skin
Tea Tree- good for cleaning congested and oily skin
Q10- soothes sensitive skin and is also great for men to shave with
To use these boil a pot of water and drop the toner tab in the water. Place your face over the pot to let the steam and toner tabs get to your pores to open them up. Then apply to mask of magnaminty. This mask has clay base for a deep cleanse- which means it is great for blackheads. Leave on for 5-10 minutes then rub the clay and aduki beans into your skin and rinse off. This entire treatment is a great inexpensive way to leave your skin feeling soft and revived!
