Mother's Day with Lush Cosmetics

It's that time of year where luxury chocolate boxes, cheesy compilation CDs and beautifully arranged flower bouquets line the shop shelves and once again Mother's Day has snuck up upon us all. Like many, you may be in a panicked frenzy trying to find the perfect last minute gift to give to Mum tomorrow, if this is the case look no further than Lush, their beautiful range of bath bombs, soaps and hand creams will leave you spoilt for choice with what to treat mum with this year.
The lovely people at Lush Plymouth invited me and a few other local bloggers back in store for their second blogger event (you can read about the first one here!) where we were introduced to their new Mother's Day and Easter Range (I will have a post up about the easter range in the next few weeks). This year Lush have released 16 products in their Mothers Day collection so there is something for everyone available!
Ther first item that caught my eye was the beautiful Rose Bubble Bar (£2.95). As the name suggests, this is a gorgeous pink and white rose shaped bubble bar complete with a green candied leaf. You simply crumble this bar under running water transforming a regular bath into one filled with rose infused bubbles, the water also turns a gorgeous pink colour and feels amazing on the skin due to the organic cocoa butter that makes up the bar.
We were then introduced to the wide range of Mother's Day bath bombs, my favourite being Secret Garden (2.95). Filled with rose and marigold petals, this bath bomb is fragranced with rose absolute making it perfect for any flower lover! However, the best thing about Secret Garden is the vibrant colours which when added to the bath create a mesmirising pattern in the water, we just couldn't stop taking photos!
Another favourite of mine was the Rose Bombshell (£3.50), this is a bath bomb like no other! Before it was demonstrated, the 'Lushies' warned us that we would want to take pictures of this spectacular. At first glance it appears to be a simple white bath bomb, however give it a shake and you will hear the Rose petal encased inside, however, the real magic happens when placed in the water. The water quickly begins foaming up producing a mass of bubbles before eventually popping (due to the magic ingredient...popping candy!) and releasing a gorgeous swirl of pink and rose petals. Additionally the blend of rose oil, soya milk and orange flower absolute leaves the bath gorgeously fragranced and skin feeling silky smooth. I just couldn't resist bringing this one back home for my mum to enjoy!
However, Lush sell much more than bath bombs, the Yummy Mummy collection is perfect for those who don't enjoy a bath. The delicate strawberry fragranced shower gel (£4.75) is enriched with moisturising carrageenan extract and refreshing orange oil, but it's the sparkle in the purple formula which really finishes this product. For that added extra, the body conditioner (£19.95) leaves skin feeling silky smooth and the gorgeous fragrance will last for hours!
And if you can't decide which product your mum will like most why not treat her to a gift set. This year there is 3 different gift sets available with a selection of different Mother's Day products. The Love You, Mum gift is just £14.50 and contains 3 of the Mother's Day favourites, where as the Mum gift box has 6 best sellers for £29.95 including both of the Yummy Mummy products. Or for an extra special gift, the Flowers for Mum (£44.95) contains 9 pampering treats and is beautifully wrapped in the multi-functional knot-wrap.
Have you tried any of these products? Which one is your favourite?
