Refresh, Pamper, Get LUSH This Valentine's Day

#theydoexist **press sample/affiliate links**


LUSH believes that all you need is love! 

I believe that all I need is 75% off Valentine chocolate, the day after. Admit it... You've rolled out of bed, as the dawn's early light broke the day after the Day of Love, splashed some water on your face, slicked on a little lip gloss, put your hair in a messy bun, put on your biggest sunnies, a coat over your jammies, grabbed your wallet and run out to hit the store to be first in the door to get the marked down deliciousness. 

Or is that just me?

Maybe I have been married way too long. 


After twenty - six years of wedded... armed bliss! Valentine's Day isn't one of those days that is super high on my list of favorite holidays. My husband and I have developed a rhythm to showing one another, in little, spontaneous ways how we feel. The calendar long ago stopped being necessary to that. I'm not Anti-V-tine's Day, I'm just not as enthusiastic as I once was.

My idea of a great Valentine's - ish celebration is a relaxing, pampering soak. Preferably up to my chin in just about hot enough to boil a lobster water, spiked with fragrant, skin loving ingredients that delight my senses as they pamper me. Luckily for me, LUSH has just the stuff I love to get the job done. Draw a tub, drop in a fresh, hand made bath bomb, grab a big mug of great coffee, a box of those marked down choccies I fought off the other Dawn Warriors in PJ's for, my phone and sink in. Balance my coffee and sweets on the tub's edge, pull up Pandora on my phone so that I can listen to my favorite music while I luxuriate, sip, nibble, surf the Interwebz and argue with idiots on political websites. Ahh... Heaven.

LUSH hand creates beautiful cosmetics and bath and body care from fresh, natural and safe synthetic ingredients that are ethically sourced. Many of their products are vegan and LUSH never tests on animals. Walking into one of their stores is a sensory experience. One I don't get, very often as the nearest to me location is a drive to the Phoenix Metro area. Hey, LUSH, want to build me a store, in Prescott? Yeah... They're going to get right on that.

Happily, LUSH has a website and they were kind enough to send me a couple of their beautiful, hand made, limited edition Valentine's Day bath goodies to share with you. Let's take a look, shall we?


Floating Flower Bath Bomb: 4 oz $6.95. Place this beautiful flower gently in your bath and watch it as it floats, fizzes away and releases it's sensual jasmine fragrance into the air and pink, orange and green hues out onto the water. Sink into the tub and let your skin slurp up all of the softening and conditioning ingredients while you soak your cares away. Step out relaxed and smelling absolutely beautiful.

The Floating Flower shares it's sensual scent with the Flying Fox Shower Gel. Yeah, now that I have fallen in love with the scent of this flower, I am going to need a bottle of that shower gel. Maybe a barrel of the shower gel...


Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar: 3.5 oz. 7.95 is a treat for the senses and the skin. As this fun, colourful, hand made bath wonder dissolves it releases lush, calming lavender, ylang ylang and neroli to soothe you while pink, purple, yellow and blue spirals out across the water and soft silver shimmer trails throughout. Bright candy stars float along the surface to complete the magical experience.

Gentle reader, these gorgeous LUSH goodies and their other offerings for Valentine's Day are limited edition and in ever dwindling supply. If there is anything you see that you think you must have, get it, while you can, so that you and perhaps someone you adore, can enjoy these treats.

  1. I was saying the same thing once I realized it's the same scent as Flying Fox. I was thinking about heading to LUSH today to pick up some, and more pink fun for my daughter.

  30. Yeah, watch out for daughters, your pretty pink stuff isn't safe. LOL I think I need a barrel of Flying Fox! Seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  31. so...(I've been in a LUSH store once...I know, right????), the very colored and glittery ones don't leave color all over the tub? or do they?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Name my faves... it'd be easier to name what I don't like. But I like everything LMAO Porridge Soap and Mint Julip lip scrub stand out to me because they were among the first of my faves. It seems with LUSH even in scents I don't think I'll like, I like. Blessing and a curse because I spend SO MUCH money there.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Floating Flower is my fav scent LUSH has. If you like it you need Flying Fox shower gel, Godiva Shampoo Bar, LUST perfume, YES YES YES Massage bar... I'm slightly obsessed with the scent

    ReplyDelete
  34. LOL we totally buy the after holiday v-day candy too! Preferably the pink kisses that are white chocolate & raspberry...nom....& yes to all the LUSH. Just all of it. Every day. Till I'm out of money.

    ReplyDelete
  35. OK, I admit I've hit a my fair share of after Valentine's, Easter, and Halloween candy sales. However, I do managed to put on some clothes before I head out. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hee! Hee! I only went out in jammies, once. And they looked almost like lounge type clothes so it wasn't too felonious. :D

    ReplyDelete
  37. Mmm.. I haven't tried the white choc and raspberry. That sounds yummy. Yeah. LUSH, man.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Evil. You are an evil enabler. I can hear my wallet screaming from inside my purse, across the room. lol

    ReplyDelete
  39. It would be easy to rack up a huge receipt. Oh, that smells good! Yep! I need this... Leave, broke and crying.

    ReplyDelete
  40. It rinses away. They don't stain. :D I respect a company that gives good bath and doesn't gunk up your tub. #neatfreak

    ReplyDelete
  41. I don't believe you've been married that long, you are far too young lady! ;)
    LOVE all of the goodies from LUSH. I love the Vanillary line....Fairy Dust, Snowcake Soap, You might like Sikkim Girls perfume. It's a nice heady floral, like the Floating Flower!

    ReplyDelete
  42. All of your suggestions sound like just the stuff I will love. I'll have to check them out!


    Hee! Hee! Thank you for your kind words. I'm fifty and yes, I've been married twenty-six years. And have a twenty six year old son. :D

  43. I want in on the LUSH party!! If my boyfriend just gave me a bag of unicorn horns for Valentine's Day, I'd be the happiest girl ever.

    Thanks for linking up to Best of Beauty! xo

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm off to the Lush website to order some goodies NOW!! These are all so pretty! Loved this post too, by the way. I agree, Valentine's Day should be celebrated in small ways every day. I'm married almost 25 years, so maybe we're just over the calendar dates together. LOL! Have a great week! Stacie xo

    ReplyDelete
  45. Update: Every single Valentine's item is out of stock. Wow! I guess I might have to go to the mall after all. Stacie xo

    ReplyDelete
  46. That's a bummer! I hope that they had some at the mall location and you could stock up.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Thank you so much, Stacie. I think that's it, just over it. lol

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm still in a snit at Lush. They discontinued my all time favorite bubble bar. The Ma bar. How the heck can they discontinue something that smells like chocolate and butter toffee? What is this world coming to?!
