January has felt like it’s been dragging on and on, but it’s finally coming to a close and you know what that means? February is almost here, which means Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! One thing I always look forward to each February is the Lush Valentine’s Day collection, and this year they were kind enough to send me a bunch of new goodies to test out and review.
This year’s collection contains a good mix of old favorites and new additions. There’s the Unicorn Horn, which is probably my favorite bubble bar that shows up each year. It smells sweet like candy and makes my skin feel so soft and nourished, plus it’s just gorgeously photogenic. They also brought back the Rose Bombshell, which is a beautiful bath bomb that smells just like a fresh bouquet of roses. I love this one because as it fizzes away, it releases real rose petals into the water so you truly feel like a princess soaking away in a luxurious bath. If you’re a huge fan of this one, you can now get the Giant Rose Bombshell to enjoy even more rose-scented soaks.
If you’re looking for new goodies to try out this year, Lush definitely does not disappoint. The majority of their Valentine’s Day collection is all new, and I’ve already got a few picks that have made it to my favorites list. First is the Whole Lotta Love Bubbleroon, which is an apple cinnamon-scented bath soak that provides lots of bubbles and a subtle gold shimmer. This is a great option for anyone who isn’t a fan of super floral, rosy scents, but still wants a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
For fans of bath bombs, there are two new ones that are really fun and smell amazing. Tisty Tosty is a rosebud-infused, heart-shaped bomb that turns your bath water the prettiest shade of milky pink and smells delightfully of jasmine and roses. Then there’s Love Boat – a literal boat-shaped bath bomb that zooms around on top of the water, leaving pastel, citrus-scented foam in its wake. This is another one of those Lush products that I have a feeling is going to go viral on Instagram because it creates such a photogenic bath.
If you’re looking for a little something special to enjoy with your significant other this Valentine’s Day, Lush has a new massage called Melt My Heart that would make the perfect treat. This vegan bar is made from a soothing mix of shea and cocoa butters that melt from the heat of your skin, creating the perfect massage oil. It has an herbal, floral scent to it (very similar to Lush’s Jungle scent), and is embedded with little flower bits to provide some extra texture. If you’re not a big fan of massages, you can also use this bar as a moisturizer for your arms and legs.
The perfect follow-up to a nice massage is, of course, a hot bath with some nourishing oils. Lush recently released a whole new collection of luxury bath oils, and they have a couple options that would work perfectly for Valentine’s Day. Polyamorous is a bright, fruity-floral bath oil that melts into the water to create a hot pink soak that leaves the skin silky soft. If you’re wanting something a little more energizing, Double Vitality is for you. This bath oil combines shea and cocoa butters into a fizzing melt that creates a swirling sea of bright coral pink water. The scent is bold and invigorating – a blend of citrus and mint that will leave you feeling alert and ready to take on the day.
