Hi guys, sorry for the massive lack of posts over the last few months. I’d blab on about uni work and Christmas etc. but really I think I’ve just been lacking some motivation! But, I’m back and today I’m going to be talking about the Marmalade jelly bath bomb! After past experiences, I’ve been a little skeptical about jelly bath bombs, just because of how messy they are/how disappointing they sometimes are. However, when I received Marmalade as a Christmas present from my parents, I was pretty darn excited to give it a go (mainly due to my immense fondness of Paddington Bear, despite being now being 20).

As with all of Lush’s jelly bath bombs, Marmalade has received some mixed reviews. On the LUSH UK app, it has an overall average rating of only 2 stars, which I do find a little harsh! The main criticism again being the presence of the jelly itself. I did have the same opinion for Big Sleep, but I found Marmalade to be pretty moderate on the jelly, which is definitely something I preferred. The jelly was still obviously present in the water, but it didn’t seem to cause me any problems in terms of blocking the plughole or staining the bath tub. I really enjoyed the jelly aspect actually, especially with the lovely orange scent (though some people have likened the scent to disinfectant – another fact I disagree with).

I thought the display in the bath was really quite pretty, with the yellow, orange and reds. It was a fast fizzer as well, which I personally find to be much more exciting to watch.


I also really loved the addition of orange slices within the bath bomb, which gave the bath a spa-like vibe.


Overall, I really enjoyed this bath bomb and I’d definitely purchase this again! It’s got a lovely citrus-y scent (which really lifts the mood on a dull day), turns your bath water a beautiful deep orange and the jelly really does look like marmalade! The overall design of the bath bomb is absolutely adorable and definitely suitable for the little bear in the blue jacket and red hat!

I’d say this is one of the more expensive bath bombs (£4.95), but it’s the same price as all the other jelly bath bombs. I’d say it’s definitely worth the money though. If you’re still unsure, ask for a demo in-store!

Hi guys! Sorry for the slight absence in pots at the moment. I’ve recently moved to university and this first week here has been quite hectic! I’m finally settling in and getting used to things, so I thought I’d sit down and write this post. I wanted to share with you what products I took to university with me and also what I don’t recommend bringing.

I’m staying in an en-suite room, so I can have my bathroom just how I like it (with all my shower products neatly lined up!) and this did help me with deciding what to bring with me. I often find I use shower gels the most when I can see them in the shower, as I’m reminded to use them. If I’d been in shared bathroom accommodation (le horror), I’d have had to ferry my products between my room and the bathroom, so I’d probably be less likely to remember to use certain shower gels. I brought Twilight (for relaxing late night/evening showers) and Happy Hippy to help get me ready for lectures in the morning.

Another product which I thought would be essential for uni, especially during Fresher’s Week, was my Tea Tree Water toner (review coming soon). It’s helped to keep my skin clear of any junk-food induced spots and help reduce any redness. Unfortunately, in the rush of packing and moving etc. I forgot my Cupcake fresh face mask (again, I’m in the process of reviewing it!), which was quite annoying, so I’m going to collect it next weekend when I visit home. Cupcake has been helping me with my oily skin, which I’m struggling with quite a lot at the moment. Tea Tree Toner water has been helping but I feel like Cupcake just gives me skin such a boost!

A product that I knew had to come to uni with me was my Solid perfumes! I only have three so I brought all of them with me. I absolutely adore them all and I find them so much more potent than regular perfumes/sprays. They’re super easy to use, very portable for social events etc. and they smell amazing – what more do you want? I’d definitely recommend these for night outs etc. – it’s super easy to top up your scent when you’re not feeling so fresh!

And lastly, one of my favourite products from Lush – Lullaby ! (Find the full review here!) For a student living on not much money, a solid shampoo bar is the perfect product! It lasts for up to three months, so you don’t have to keep buying more shampoo. I’ve found that since being at uni I’ve taken more showers to make up for my lack of a bath, so I’m washing my hair a bit more regularly. I plan on buying a solid conditioner bar as well when I venture into my new local shop!

So, onto the final part of this post – what I don’t recommend taking to university!

1. Obviously, unless you’re incredibly lucky and have a bath, don’t bring bath bombs! Even if you go have a bath, please be very careful of staining, because you will get fined if you damage the tub in any way!
2. If you’re going to bring naked products, make sure you bring a good shower caddy or something that can suction to the wall. There’s limited space in accommodation showers (en-suite OR shared), so make sure you bring extra storage with you. You could even melt down the product into a lush pot to make it easier for you!

Please remember, these are just suggestions! Do what you want to do! This is just what I’ve brought with me and the stuff I wouldn’t bring. I hope you guys enjoyed this post (and maybe even found it useful?)! Look out for more university-themed posts in the upcoming weeks/months!

Thank you all for your support and I’ll be back with another post very soon!

Hi guys, here’s a review of a bath bomb I didn’t think I’d ever be buying.

I bought Think Pink after the disappointment of not being able to get The Experimenter in store like I wanted to. I was browsing around the bath bombs, looking for something new to try instead, and it caught my eye. It was by far one of the most eye-catching bath bombs on display, as it’s covered in lustre. I picked it up and smelt it and I was almost a little shocked. I’d never tried the original bath bomb, so I didn’t know much about it’s scent. I was expecting something maybe rose-scented (based on it’s appearance), but instead I got lovely hints of vanilla & tonka, which are some of my favourite scents in lush products! I can’t believe I’d been shying away from this bath bomb because I presumed it would be rose-scented. Never presume people! (especially if Lush is involved).

Anyway, enough of the back story, let’s get on with the review. My first impression of the design of it was obviously a good one, as I was compelled it pick it up. It’s a very deep pink colour, engraved/embossed with a strange swirling pattern (this is kind of why it screamed rose to me). It’s absolutely covered in lustre, top to bottom, so I did find it a little messy to use and also to photograph (re-positioning was a nightmare!) I think it’s all down to personal preference with lustre – some people adore it and others cannot stand it. If you’re one of the people who prefers a subtle shimmer, then this is not the bath bomb for you!

Think Pink is a “fast-fizzer” and creates beautiful bath art on top of the water.


It’s definitely a “what you see is what you get” type of a product. It’s a bright pink bath bomb, so you get a bright pink bath. It’s one of the most pigmented bath bombs I’ve used. Try adding a bubble bar such as The Comforter to add some gorgeous bubbles into the mix. Think Pink also contains Lavender Oil, so it would pair nicely with any of the Twilight scented products (Serendipity soap could be a nice companion).


It’s scent is meant to be uplifting and relaxing (with the Lavender Oil, Tonka and Vanilla Absolute and Neroli Oil), so definitely a good night time bath. I usually have my last bath of the week on a Sunday evening, to help me relax for the week ahead. I would recommend this product if you suffer from anxiety and need something to help you unwind.

My only criticism of this bath bomb is that it is heavily pigmented so be careful about touching towels etc. as I found that it stained. Also, I would wash out your tub straight away after use, as there is a lot of glitter that is left behind.

However, I still love this product and I would definitely purchase it again!

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cornflour, Perfume, Lavender Oil, Tonka Absolute, Vanilla Absolute, Neroli Oil, Cream of Tartar, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, DRF Alcohol, Limonene, Coumarin

I hope you enjoyed this review! As ever I’m so grateful for all of my followers & readers!

This was definitely one of the new products I was excited to try the most! The promo pictures looked amazing and I was very intrigued by the beautiful rainbow stars! And it did not disappoint! I have fallen head over heels for this bath bomb and I’m excited to share my thoughts with you all!

Rocket Science has a very citrusy, fresh scent, with gorgeous Bergamot Oil and Sicilian Lemon Oil. I’d say this is the perfect scent to wake yourself up on a morning or just to make you feel fresh and energised! However, the scent does fade away quite quickly once the bath bomb has dissolved, which is really my only criticism.

This is such an adorable little bath bomb and it’s design is so intricate and well thought out. The main part of the bomb is a blue rocket, which glistens with a silver lustre. The “tail” of the rocket is a vibrant yellow, with lovely rainbow stars dotted throughout. This would be a lovely bath bomb for children, as the design is very playful and the scent isn’t too overpowering or harsh.

This bath bomb turns your bath water a deep blue colour, which is one of my favourite colours of bath. However, it doesn’t produce a great deal of bath art, despite it’s design, so if that’s something you usually look for, I wouldn’t recommend this product.

Overall, I really enjoyed this product. The scent of it is gorgeous and I just love the idea of the rainbow stars! It really adds something to your bath experience! This would also be a fab gift idea (one I’d definitely enjoy receiving!).

I really hope you enjoyed my review of Rocket Science! I recently received a very exciting Kitchen order and I can’t wait to share my opinion of those products with you!

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Bergamot Oil, Cream of Tartar, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Corn Starch, Glycerine, Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Lauryl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Sodium carboxy methyl cellulose, Perfume, Limonene, Tin Oxide

Here is the first of my promised reviews of some of the newest editions to Lush’s extensive line of products. When the jelly bombs were released I was immediately drawn to The Big Sleep (TBS) as it was said to have a very soothing scent to it, perfect for a bath before bed. It also looked gorgeous with it’s rich blues and moon design.

The scent of TBS is exactly what I was hoping for. It’s very soothing and calming, with Lavender Oil and Chamomile Powder, but it also contains Tonka Absolute, which gives it a really nice vanilla undertone. It’s a perfect scent for those night-time baths after a long, stressful day. The scent is quite strong when you smell the bomb itself, but becomes more muted once it’s in the bath (it does stay on your skin though, which is something I always enjoy from a bath bomb!)

As I mentioned before, this bath bomb looks amazing. The main body of the bomb is a light blue colour and the embellishments (the moon design and “spots”) are a much deeper, richer blue. It produces amazing bath art in the tub, very similar to the type of bath art Frozen often produces. It’s a slow fizzer as well, so it carries on fizzing throughout your bath, which I really love. I always find it makes your bath feel a little more special.


Once it has been fizzing for a few minutes, the green jelly starts to become visible. A soft layer of foam on top of the water, which I used to moisturise my skin.


The jelly is meant to fully dissolve in your bath once it’s released, but I didn’t find that this happened at all. This would be my only negative point about this bath bomb. I really wish the jelly dissolved better, so you wouldn’t be left with chunks of jelly floating in your bath. It’s not a huge deal, but this stuff is extremely sticky and it’s a little difficult to remove from the sides of the bath tub.


As you can see on my hand, the layer of foamy jelly is quite thin, however there is more obvious chunks of jelly in the bath as well.

I’d say this bath bomb is definitely quite a novelty product, so it’s kind of up to you whether or not you want to spend the £4.95. I did enjoy my experience overall and I definitely would purchase it again, mainly for the scent if I’m being honest! The jelly didn’t really add anything to the bath, as it was mainly the foam that was moisturising.

If you’re not sure about these jelly bombs then I’d suggest asking for a demo in store, hopefully it’ll help you decide if they are something you’d enjoy. Remember, jelly bombs are a new thing and staff aren’t going to be alarmed if you need demos of all of the new bombs!

Hope you enjoyed this review, stay tuned for more reviews of some of the other new products! ❤ Happy Lushing!

Hi guys, I’m back with a shampoo bar review! For the last couple of months I’ve been using Smuggler’s soul but it recently ran out and it’s only available at Father’s Day, so I decided to shop around for a new one to try! I immediately was drawn to Lullaby as Lavender is my favourite scent of all time. It does wonders for my anxiety and it just puts me in such a good mood! I also liked the light pink colour of it (I really am a sucker for aesthetics!)

Lullaby also contains Chamomile Oil, which is also very calming and soothing, as well as Oat Milk (to sooth sensitive scalps), Neroli Oil and Jojoba Oil (super moisturising!). All of these combined produce a beautiful scent, which makes my hair smell wonderful. I dry my shampoo bars in my room before popping them back in the tin, so my whole room always smells of Chamomile and Lavender!

The only downside to this shampoo bar is that I found it quite drying on my hair, but honestly that can easily be remedied by using a good conditioner afterwards. I’ve experienced the same thing with a few other shampoo bars, and it’s something that doesn’t particularly bother me.

This bar retails for £5.75, which is the average price of most of the regular line shampoo bars. It’s a kitchen exclusive (It’s listed with a black label not a green one, so I presume this is an Oxford Street Exclusive?) All my shampoo bars have always lasted me up to 3 months, so I’d 100% recommend that you make the switch to solid shampoo!

I really hope you enjoyed this review! Stay tuned for some exciting new reviews of the new releases!

I am SO excited to be writing this review! The Beatles are by far my favourite band of all time and I was so happy when Lush decided to bring out a Beatles-themed bath bomb! I first caught a glimpse of this bath bomb on Lush’s instagram. It was released at the 2017 Lush Summit in London. I live about 6 hours from London and I definitely couldn’t afford the train fare so I wasn’t able to make it down. This was the product from the Summit that I loved the most and I was so so SO happy when Lush decided to make it an official main line item!

Yellow Submarine is utterly breathtaking, from it’s design to it’s scent. It’s obviously named after the well-known Beatles song (and album) “Yellow Submarine”, which is a personal favourite of mine! It’s scent very much captures a tropical scene, with beautiful Brazilian Orange Oil, which gives your skin a boost of refreshment. It doesn’t specifically say this in the ingredients, but I did hint a slight scent of Coconut as well, which definitely added to the tropical vibes. It also contains Lemongrass oil, which is a fab natural antiseptic.

It’s made of up of two main colours: vibrant yellow and pink, which turn your bath water a gorgeous peach colour, with glints of the “Fandango” lustre (don’t worry, the lustre is quite minimal for people who prefer less glittery baths).



It’s a slow fizzer, so you can enjoy it’s beautiful swirls of pink and yellow in the water for the duration of your bath. I personally prefer faster fizzing bombs, but I can understand why people enjoy long-lasting bombs.

Yellow Submarine is a super moisturising bath bomb and it left my skin feeling silky smooth. The lustre is quite subtle, so I didn’t really have any that stayed on my skin (no problems with bath staining either).

Overall, this is a fabulous bath bomb and I’m definitely going to be stocking up! And for only £3.95, this bath bomb has such great value for money!

Hope you enjoyed this review and watch out for brand new reviews on some of the latest Lush releases!

Top 5 products for beginners

Hi guys, I thought this would be a really fun post to write and I thought it would be helpful to any beginner lushies who are maybe a little overwhelmed at the vast selection of products! Here are my top 5 products for beginners, that get you the most for your money and allow you to truly feel the full Lush experience!

#1 Intergalactic bath bomb

This is one of Lush’s most iconic bath bombs and it’s definitely one that people think of when they think of Lush. It smells gorgeous and emulates that “Lush shop” scent. It’s packed full of lustre, creates incredible bath art and it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. This is 100% something that I keep coming back to again and again. If you’re looking for a full-on Lush bath, then this is the bath bomb for you!

#2 The Comforter bubble bar

Bubble bars are great for when you don’t want to break the bank. The Comforter is under £5 and, depending on how bubbly you like your bath, you can get up to eight uses out of this (maybe more, who knows?). The Comforter is really soothing, with Bergamot Oil and a blackcurrant scent, so it’s ideal for a relaxing night time soak. It bubbles up super well, so a little goes a long way, Just crumble a bit of this under running water and watch the water bubble and turn a deep pink!

#3 Rainbow Fun

This is such a fun product that has so many uses! Use under running water for loads of bubbles, use as a soap/wash on your body or sculpt it into something amazing! With 7 colours comes 7 different coloured baths (or use all at once if you prefer!). This is definitely a bank account saver as well, as this stuff lasts for ages and ages! It smells absolutely divine and it leaves your skin feeling refreshed. This is a must-have for lushies!

#4 A big ass bottle of shower gel of your choice (my personal favourite is Happy Hippy!)

Let’s all be real here. You’ll definitely fall in love with whichever shower gel you decide to buy, so why not just skip the 100g and go straight for the bigger sizes? This is a mistake I’ve made before. Lush shower gel does last a while, but if you’re in love with a scent and you don’t ever want to be left without it, always go for a bigger bottle (500g or 1kg if you can stretch to it!) Believe me, it’s worth the investment.

#5 A shampoo bar of your choice (I really love Karma Komba)

A Lush solid shampoo bar is a must for all new lushies. If you’re thinking that Lush is too expensive then you’re wrong! Most shampoo bars at Lush range from approx. £5 to £7, BUT they last for about 3-4 months (depending on how frequently you wash your hair). I fell in love with Karma Komba but I recently branched out and tried Smuggler’s Soul from the Father’s day collection and I was blown away by how shiny it left my hair! Naked shampoo is also amazing for the environment! (For these shampoo bars I’d recommend a shampoo tin or a small tupperware tub).

And that’s it!

I hope you guys enjoyed my post and hopefully I’ve inspired some new lushies to go out and give these products a go!

Hi guys, this is my review for the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb. This is a very much overlooked product, unless you’re a lushie with kids, but I personally think this product has some really great properties, that can benefit everyone!

Ickle Baby Bot is a bath bomb designed for small children, so it’s shaped like an adorable robot. It’s super gentle and very plain, meaning it won’t irritate young skin. However, I think this bath bomb is a must-have for adults as well! It’s main ingredient is Lavender oil, which is known for it’s soothing properties. It’s great for skin irritation, such as bites or sunburn. I’m planning on stocking up this summer to have something on hand to soothe any unfortunate burn I manage to acquire!

Lavender oil is combined with Chamomile oil, which is also very soothing and calming for the skin. With a hint of Sandalwood, this bath bomb is perfect for a summer nighttime bath, to help heal both your skin and your soul.

This bath bomb is quite small, so it only costs a mere £1.95! It also turns your bath water a gorgeous baby blue colour, so who could resist? It’s definitely going to one of my go-to bath products for sore skin this summer!

(The scent is also very similar to Sleepy body lotion! *wink wink*)

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Lavender Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Chamomile Blue Oil, Limonene, Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42053, Colour 42090

I hope you enjoyed this (short) review! Lots of exciting new posts coming very soon!

Hi guys! I’m back with another review and it’s a new product! Scrubee was released for Mother’s Day but I missed it so I was ecstatic when Lush announced they’d be becoming permanent!

Scrubee is such an adorable product and it’s super unique, compared to other Lush body scrubs. I also like how Scrubee is almost a combination of a body scrub and a body butter/moisturiser. It is made using Shea butter and Cocoa Butter, which are both fabulously moisturising. I enjoy having a quick shower before bed in the hot weather, so having a 2-in-1 product is ideal for me!

Scrubee is part of the “Honey I washed the kids” scent family. I haven’t tried many of the other products in the family but as soon as I smelt Scrubee in the shop (the revamped York shop – would recommend a visit!) I knew I had to have it. It has a predominantly honey scent, but it contains Brazilian Orange Oil and Bergamot Oil, which add a richness to it’s overall scent. It’s absolutely gorgeous!

Like the other scrubs (and solid products) Lush make, Scrubee is best used in the shower but not left under the running water. I personally use it all over my body before I get in the shower, then wash it off before I start my hair routine. This has really worked well for me. If I do get Scrubee wet I usually leave it to dry on top of a Tupperware box until it’s bone dry again.

In my opinion, the best feature of Scrubee is the use of ground coconut shell and almond as it’s exfoliant. I usually use sugar scrubs (Rough with the Smooth of late), so I did find the coconut shell a little rough, but I got used to it quite quickly. I very much appreciate how well it managed to rid my legs of my flaky, dry skin! Also, a perfect moisturiser for after you’ve shaved your legs!

Overall, I absolutely adore this product and I’d definitely recommend it! It lasts for ages, so it’s definitely worth the £6.95! Give it a try in store if you’re STILL unconvinced!

Ingredients: Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter Fair, Trade Shea Butter, Ground Coconut Shell, Perfume, Honey, Ground Almonds, Coconut Oil, Bergamot Oil, Brazilian Orange Oil, Amyl Cinnamal, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Limonene, Linalool

Hope you enjoyed the review!

(ps – tried a new “posterising” filter on my photo, opinions wanted!)



Hey everyone! I’m back for another review of a classic Lush product: Sex bomb bath bomb! This is a cute little bath bomb that I’ve never tried before, so I was excited to give it a go! It looks adorable and smells wonderful. I’d never really been drawn to it before, but after discovering it shares some of it’s scent with the Lust Perfume (one of my favs!) I was intrigued and decided to go for it!

The bath bomb itself is pink and purple, with some pastel pink rose “petals” nestled within it. These petals are actually made of rice paper. It turns your bath water a gorgeous pink colour. The rose petals slowly drift across the water, which is a nice touch.


This would be a perfect bath bomb if you were looking to enjoy a bath with your partner (this would be amazing for Valentine’s Day!). Sex Bomb’s main ingredient is Jasmine Absolute, which is known to be quite sensual, as well as adding a floral element to it’s overall scent.


It also contains Clary Sage oil, which is very soothing and relaxing, and Ylang-Ylang oil, which adds a sweet note to the scent. These scents all combine to create an amazing scent! I can’t believe I’ve never tried this one before! I’m definitely going to be repurchasing!

This bath bomb is only £3.75, so it’s one of the cheaper bath products. This would make a great present either for yourself or for that special person in your life! Ask for a demo in store to try before you buy!

I really hoped you enjoyed this review and liked my featured image! I thought I’d change it up a bit! Lots of new exciting posts coming soon, so follow to keep up to date!

Hi guys! I’m back with another bath bomb review! This time, it’s a Lush classic: Twilight. The last time I used this bath bomb was a long time ago and I have no idea why I haven’t repurchased until now! It’s such a great bath bomb and it’s a perfect for calming my anxiety before bed.

Twilight is one of Lush’s staple bath bombs, and I can understand why. It really is a beautiful bath bomb, with stars and moons embossed into it’s purple-pink outer layer. Hidden inside is a core of vibrant blue, with small yellow parts as well.


It’s a slow-fizzer, so it takes a while for the blue and yellow to start dissolving, but when they do your bath is transformed into a gorgeous lilac colour. It creates amazing bath art as it dissolves and the silver lustre is a nice touch. Your bath will look like a twilight sky, hence the name.



(Ignore the chipped nails!)

Twilight is heavily scented with Lavender Oil and Tonka Absolute, giving it a very soothing and relaxing scent. As I said, it really helped to calm down my anxiety before I went to bed. I’d imagine it’d also make a lovely bath in the morning, to help calm the nerves before a big event etc. (I’d certainly be tempted!) It also contains Ylang Ylang Oil, one of my personal favourites, which combines nicely to give Twilight an overall floral and sweet scent.

Overall, I’d definitely recommend Twilight. The scent is to die for and you’ll no doubt be hooked once you’ve bought your first one! It’s only £3.95 too, which is a really good price for a regular-sized bath bomb!

If you love the scent, why not try the new Twilight Body Spray? It’s a perfect way to keep the scent on your skin for longer!

Hope you enjoyed this review, keep checking back for more!


(p.s. please let me know if the featured image is too cringe! I had so much fun making it!)
