Lush Mother's Day Range!

Mother's Day will be here before we know it (Sunday May 8th to be exact), so it's time to start thinking about a gift for your Mum, wife or even yourself if you're a Mum (there's nothing wrong with self-gifting. I do it all the time!). My husband and son always get me something lovely, and we get something beauty-related for my Mother-In-Law, too.

If you're a Lushie like me, you'll know Lush have released their Limited Edition Mother's Day range for 2016! It's available in-store and online from April 20 until May 8, which means you can check out the goodies now! I was kindly sent a few things from the range; let's have a look at some of the gorgeous creations for this year....

Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb*

'Drop a bombshell for a floral triplet of rose petals, rose absolute and rose oil. As it fizzes, the outer shell breaks away and magnificent petals burst out in a sweet haze of Sicilian lemon, floral geranium and Turkish rose oil and rose absolute'.

I've already used this and would highly recommend picking one up if you're into roses and gorgeous floral scents. I loved it! The bathwater turned pink, there were rose petals floating on top and the smell was utterly delightful. If you're a fan of Lush RoseJam shower gel, this will be your cup of tea. Rose Bombshell is perfect for an indulgent, pampering, feminine bath experience. I had quite the relaxing bath, with my lit candles and door firmly shut (interruptions be gone). If only I'd brought a glass of wine!

Yummy Mummy Shower Cream*

'The mother of all shower creams, made with Fair Trade organic cocoa butter for blissful lathers and velvet-soft skin. This gloriously sweet blend of Brazilian orange and geranium oil is a sure-fire way to pack some pampering into your daily routine.'

Last year Lush released Yummy Mummy shower gel, this year we get the shower cream. The Creams are getting more popular I've noticed (I'm still working on my huge Lord Of Misrule cream from Christmas!). I probably still prefer the gel formula to the cream, however Yummy Mummy is luxuriously soft to use and translates to a beautiful pampering experience. The aroma is sweet and very floral; I get a huge geranium hit, so if you prefer fruity fragrances, this may not be up your alley. The lavender colour is really pretty and I appreciate how soft my skin feels after using this cream, but I can think of a lot of other Lush shower cleansers I'd reach for before this one.

Ladybird Bubble Bar*

'This friendly little ladybird wants to take you under its wing and run you a hot floral bath, filled with sweet geranium oil to aid relaxation. A little peppermint oil gives a menthol hint to this flowery mix, helping to revive and uplift your mind and body.'

How cute is this Ladybird!? I'm saving this special little bug for Mother's Day, because it will be wonderful to soak in a relaxing bath full of flowery-scented bubbles after my hard day of being taken out to lunch. LOL. This is also available in a cute-as-heck LadyBird Gift Set for Mother's Day, which contains Honey Bee bath bomb, Sunflower bubbles and Ladybird bubble bar. I can't wait to use this!

Rose Bombshell RRP $7.50
Yummy Mummy RRP $19.95 (250g)
Ladybird RRP $6.95
Available in-store or online April 20 - May 8, 2016.

Mecca Beauty Loop Level 1 Box!

Hi guys! I'm pretty excited, because today I'm blogging about the Mecca Beauty Loop Level 1 Box! This is my first ever box as part of Mecca's Beauty Loop program, because I only just reached the qualifying spend ($300 in a one year period) last month! I am officially a 'Beauty Discoverer'. LOL! I went in-store and picked this up yesterday, although you can order online and add it to your order, if you're eligible to receive one.

Now that I've reached Level 1 status, I'm eligible for four complimentary Beauty Loop sample boxes per year (this being the first) and complimentary makeup application for my Birthday. Let's take a look inside the box.....

~ Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil mini bottle
~ Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Cleanser sachet
~ Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer sachet
~ Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer sachet

Also included is a card explaining each product, why Mecca love it and how to use it. Handy!

I have no complaints about this box! I love my Hourglass lipstick and Ambient Lighting Powder so I'm keen to try the much-hyped Veil Mineral Primer. The Too Faced Shadow Insurance will be the perfect prep before I use my new Chocolate Bar palette (so far I've been applying it without primer). I've tried a few other Kate Somerville samples in the past and loved them, so I'm also keen to give the cleanser a go, and I haven't tried anything from Josie Maran before, so will be excited to trial a new-to-me brand!
