My Favourite Lush Products

Hello lovelies!

This week I thought I would post about my current favourites from Lush. This is something that does tend to change every year as my taste changes and they bring out new products.

I've chosen my favourites from the main Lush line they do rather than the Halloween, Christmas, Mother's Day, etc collections.

At the moment my current favourites are... (drum roll please...!):

Dream Cream Hand & Body Lotion - This is my newest favourite from Lush as it's something I wasn't overly sold on, until I tried it! Oh my this stuff is amazing, it helps calm your skin and gives you lovely well moisturised skin after just one use.

Comforter Bubble Bar - This has been a staple favourite for years for me. Firstly it's pink which I love, also it smells gorgeous, like sweets!! I love bubble bars as for me a bath isn't complete without bubbles so I tend to use these more than bath bombs.

Comforter Shower Gel - This was an obvious pick for me as I love the scent so much. This again is a gorgeous pink shade and a little goes a long way. I went for the medium size but I know that this will last me a long time.

Twilight Bath Bomb - Again this is another staple for me. If you love all things lavender and relaxing than this is the bath bomb for you! I always have one of these in so if I'm needing an extra relaxation soak I can do thanks to this little one.

Bubblegum Lip Scrub - I'm on my second pot of this stuff now and I love it! I use it about once a week to help keep my lips soft. I would say a pot of this would last you between 8 months to a year if you use it once a week so a little goes a long way. The scent is also very yummy (very sweet smelling) so that's an added bonus (they have other scents if sweet isn't for you).

Cupcake Face Mask - I switch between this face mask and the Catastrophe Cosmetic mask depending on what my skin is in need of. Cupcake is good for those with oily skin and in need of some balancing out and Catastrophe Cosmetic is for skin in need of calming down and helping any breakouts. Both are gorgeous but for my the scent of Cupcake is why it wins my heart. It smells of chocolate!! For any chocolate lover this is the perfect face mask, just make sure you don't find it too much and try to eat it! ;)

Dragons Egg Bath Bomb - This is a new favourite of mine even though this prodict has been out for a while now. The scent of this is quite citrusy and vibrant, it reminds me of sherbert and honestly I'm amazed on how long I'd just been walking past this one! You pop it in the bath and not only does it fill your bathroom with it's gorgeous scent but it also has lovely little coloured flakes inside that help add a little bit of fun to your bathtime. I just love it and again I will always have this one in too!

Creamy Candy Bubblebar - I have loved this bubble bar well over a year but as I got pregnant I found it too sickly. Now however I'm back to loving it! It smells like the name suggests, sweets and as it's pink it creates a beautiful pink bubbly bath for you. I love that you can get several uses out of these bubble bars too - always a win!

Frozen Bath Bomb - Last but not least is one of the newest bath bombs from Lush, Frozen. This is based on the Disney film and doesn't disappoint. It's got a gorgeous blue glittery shade and when popped in your bath it transforms it into a wonderful lagoon with glitter! The scent isn't anything too strong either, it's quite neutral so if strong scents aren't your thing than this may be a good one to start with.

I hope you enjoyed my little post about my Lush favourites, as you can probably tell I'm a massive fan of the store - have been since I was 14 so I've tried a lot of their products!

Thanks for reading!

Maple Holistics Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner Review & Giveaway!!

Hello again!

Now this week I was kindly sent some products to trial by Maple Holistics (link here).

Maple Holistics are an American based company and they specialise in cruelty free, organic products (yay!).

Now honestly this is the first time I had heard of the company but as a massive beauty fan I love to try new products so couldn't resist!

Maple Holistics Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner*
I must say this is my first time using Argan Oil shampoo and after using it all week I'm loving it! These make my hair wonderfully glossy, easy to manage and shiny! This is especially impressive as only last week I dyed it, so usually it's very dry and upset looking at this point!

You only need to add a little shampoo and it lathers up really well and the conditioner, well the second you apply it to your hair you can see it working - gorgeous silky hair in seconds!!

The scent is very mild and as it's organic and sulphate free I can imagine this shampoo and conditioner duo would be gentle on any sensitive scalps too!

My only slight judgement would be the packaging on the conditioner, I'm not so sold on the solid white label. I think maybe instead have the conditioner detailing marked with a white band around the bottom of the label. This may look a little more attractive in my bathroom, but honestly, if this is my only change than this product is a definite win by my books!

I'm so chuffed and thankful for the team at Maple Holistics for sending me these lovely products to sample - thank you so much! You have definitely made a customer out of me, your products are easy to use, organic, with gorgeous results and cruelty free - I think you have quickly become one of my favourite new brands!!

**GIVEAWAY!!** Have you tried any products from Maple Holistics? If not would you like to be in for a chance to try this Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner? All you have to do is tell me your current favourite hair product in the comment section below and I will pull the winner out of a hat of everyone who enters. Keep your eyes peeled as the winner will be announced by the 15th October 2015! Good luck!!

Thanks for reading,
