Lush Blogger Event- Mother's Day Collection 2017

If you're anything like me, you've probably left buying Mother's day gifts a little too late.
Thankfully, I was invited to the Lush Mother's Day blogger event at my local store last month, and they showed me all the lovely new items they have, specially designed for Mothers in mind.

So if you think your mum deserves a Lush filled Mother's day, keep reading! 

The lovely girls at Lush Tunbridge Wells divided up the group so we could see and talk about each product, and pass it round so we could have a sniff and play.

The first product is Mum bath fizzer.

This cute little bath fizzer has a secret message inside, just to let your mum know how much you love her. It contains Lemon, Orange and Rose Oils

Next is my favourite new product called 'Ups-A-Daisy'. Containing rose and orange oils, this gives off an awe inspiring tie dye effect.

Next is the Baa Bar, which you crumble off what you need a soak in the bath. Lavender, Rose and Ylang Ylang are the calming ingredients to save Mum counting Sheep when she goes to bed.

My second favourite product purely for the smell is 'Your Mother Should Know' bath bar, which smells of beautiful Neroli, rose wood and grapefruit and is so fragrant.

Another favourite is 'Elsie The Giraffe (You're Having a Bath)' which is possibly the best name for a product ever? Swish Elsie around the bath for a fruity bath of Lemon and Grapefruit oils.

If you can't say it yourself, then say it with this 'Yummy Mummy' violet smelling shower cream which smells of Palma Violets, containing conditioning cocoa butter.

The Sunrise soap is so zesty, and the perfect wake up call, with bergamot and zesty orange oil.

I had the 'Scrubee' demonstrated on my arm and this is such a lovely product! This was a firm favourite amongst the group, as the creamy honey and cocoa butter keeps skin smooth, and the ground up coconut shells and almonds make for great exfoliation.

This wobbly jelly is the 'Pink Custard' jelly which smells of tonka and lavender. Showering with this can make shower time that bit more fun.

Finally, the lovely honey lip scrub is a tasty (yes I ate some) way to moisturise and exfoliate those dry winter lips away!

We took a little break and enjoyed this delicious sparkly cake.

The final part of the event, was actually making our very own face cleansers, another great option for Mother's Day. "Angels on Bare Skin" is a gentle exfoliating face wash than can be used daily and by all skin types.

We mixed Kaolin, a grease and dirt absorber, calming lavender and rose oils to make a paste. We then folded in ground almonds and lavender flowers and put it in the pot, as simple as that, proving that Lush products really don't contain any chemicals or nasties. I've been using mine everyday since and my skin feels nourished, smooth and looks bright.

So if you haven't got Mother's day sorted, head into Lush right now so your Mum knows how much you care!
