LUSH Cosmetics Valentine's Day Collection 2016

Love it or loathe it: Valentine's Day is right around the corner now, so I thought I'd share some photos from the LUSH Poole shop, because whether you like Valentine's season or not, there's no denying LUSH will make you fall head over heels for their 2016 collection of bath-time luxury.

This is one of the strongest Valentine's collections I have seen at LUSH for a while now. There's a brilliant mix of bath time treats, pretty gifts suitable for friends and lovers, and decadent shower gel and massage bars. I headed down to LUSH Poole to see what they had and here's a selection of my favourites to share with you all:

♥ ♥ * Bath Ballistics ♥ ♥ * 


This is one of my favourite products from the collection this year. Made with Brazilian orange oil and Fair Trade vanilla, it's also packed full of Fair Trade organic cocoa butter, meaning it coats your skin in heavenly moisture while its sweet citrusy fragrance lifts your mood. The scent is so gorgeous and it's a bath bomb I'd love to use beyond the Valentine season. 


 This is such a classic LUSH product that is so timeless. The heady, gorgeous woody orris root powder and restorative rose absolute is based on a medieval love potion, with seven rosebuds that burst from the spellbinding pink heart as you breath in Sicilian lemon oil, geranium and sensual jasmine. If you've never tried this beautiful LUSH product; make a date with this immediately! 

                                                            * ♥ ♥ * Bubble Bars ♥ ♥ * 


If there's a photo of LUSH going round on Instagram chances are it's this at the moment! Unicorn Horn is just so adorable and why LUSH don't make this a regular I don't know because it's such a popular product. Beside the magical rainbow unicorn design, it has an enchanting scent filled with beautiful neroli and lavender essential oils complete with sparkling lustre and colourful candy stars that envelope into beautiful pink bubbles. 

                                                             * ♥ ♥ * Shower Gels ♥ ♥ * 


 This has become a cult Valentine's LUSH product now and it will most definitely sweep you off your feet with the fresh pomegranate juice and uplifting grapefruit oil scent. Soothing marshmallow root and Fair Trade vanilla pod infusion offset the zest with sweetness and Fair Trade organic cocoa butter so that it softens the skin beautifully. 

                                                           * ♥ ♥ * Lip Scrub ♥ ♥ * 


Another cult range of LUSH are their scrumptious lip scrubs and for a delectable pout this Valentine's Day this deliciously sweet and perfectly pink scrub will be loved by many. Made with caster sugar, sea salt, edible red hearts and hundreds and thousands, it will polish and keep your lips super kissable all season.

♥ ♥ * ♥ ♥ * ♥ ♥ * 

To finish the collection there's a range of gorgeous gift sets that, as I mentioned above, would be perfect for both a loved one or a dear friend. One of my favourite gift items is the re-usable 'Kiss a few frogs' knot wrap scarf. The neon frog prince print design was created with ARTHOUSE Meath, a social enterprise showcasing the talents of those living with severe epilepsy, learning difficulties and physical difficulties and 'Re-wrap', a women’s co-operative from Mysore, India then provided the fabric. To me that's such a loving gift anyone would treasure.

Of the gift boxes themselves, 'Lots of Love'  (£27.95) has the best packaging, in that it is a huge heart box that would be perfect for storing your favourite LUSH treats afterwards. My favourite gift for a very dear friend would be 'In Your Dreams' (£9.95) with incredibly cute packaging that includes my favourites Tisty Tosty and Unicorn Horn.

What do you all think of the LUSH Valentine's collection this year? Has anything stolen your heart? Shop the entire range here. And a thank you to the lovely team at LUSH in Poole for letting me snap away in their gorgeous shop.
