Lush's Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb(Lush Christmas 2016)

Lush's Shoot for The Stars Bath Bomb (Lush Christmas 2016)

Paint the night sky
Launch this one in the water and watch it shoot and spin. Stay very still to see the swirling colors of the night sky dazzle in your bathtub. As the calming blanket of shimmering midnight blue unfolds, Brazilian orange and bergamot oils take your skin to heaven as your mood rockets straight up to the stars. 
This bath bomb is 7.0 oz and sells for $6.95. It was a limited edition item only made for the Christmas season.  To me, it had the scent of the Honey, I washed The Kids Scent, a toffee, sugary scent. 

This bath bomb contains cocoa butter, Brazilian orange oil, bergamot oil, gardenia extract, coconut cream, and almond oil for a moisturizing and uplifting bath. 

I loved the smell and moisturization of this bath bomb. perfect for winter skin that is dry from the cold and blasting artificial heat.  I loved the deep blue color of the bath and the glitter in the water was soo mesmerizing. I love it and would re-purchase if it wasn't a seasonal item. :( boo! 
Come Back Soon for some more Lush goodies (Demo,Reviews,Ect.)

Birchbox October 2016

Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask

Marcelle Curling and Lengthening Mascara

PBJ Smoothie Stick (Gift with re-sub.)

Embrylisse Lait-Creme Concentrate( Moisturizer)

Make Lipstick in Taffy
R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo

I got all these items in my October 2016 Birchbox. 

A little bit of everything in this months box. I live on dry shampoo and face masks, I will use the moisturizer, and as for the lipstick I won't use it. I got a gift for re-subscribing to birchbox after a few years hiatus from it. That gift was the PBJ Smoothie Stick. I might use this on a special occasion, it is a nude redish/pink color almost the same as the make lipstick in this box. 

I personally can't wait to try the face mask. I have tried the dry shampoo, and I like it. I'm waiting to try the mascara, and moisturizer. 

This box gets a 3/5 for me, for having some stuff I won't use at all. 
I hope next months is better, we'll see. 

What's new since last time I subbed, is that you get to choose one sample size product a month, or you can choose the surprise box for the month. I'm not sure what I will choose, but I'll see what I like for November. 

Stay tuned for more beauty and birchbox goodness soon,

Lush Halloween 2016: Lush's Fire Side Soap

This is a review for Lush's Fireside Soap. This is a limited edition, Halloween 2016 soap. This soap is a fall/christmas time favorite, with a scent that is perfect for cold weather ahead.  This soap even looks like a flame in a fire! it's so cute!

The soap is cast with palm-free soap base. It has rapeseed oil, coconut oil, extra virgin coconut oil, dried chestnuts, clove bud oil, pimento berry oil, vanilla absolute, and chestnut flour. The smell is of cloves, spices, and christmas/fall joy! I'm in love with this soap.  The lather on this soap is less then normal soaps, so you do need a bit more to get squeeky clean, but with the smell of it I don't mind. The lather is also yellow/orange, so if that bothers you, it washes right off, don't worry.

I would give this a five out of five for a seasonal favorite!
and 5 stars:
***** stars
If you would like to purchase this soap, do it now before it is gone!
you can buy it here:

Stay tune for more beauty and lush goodness soon,

Lush's Serendipity Soap Review

This is a review for Lush's Serendipity soap. This is a round, lavender and dark purple soap, that smells like lavender and chamomile to soothe your senses and your soul. 

This soap is made with rapeseed oil, coconut oil, lavender, and chamomile to soothe your skin and mind. The scent is more on the chamomile side with a bit of lavender to me, but I still love it! The lavender and chamomile are great for more sensitive skins, dry skin, and the coconut oil and rapeseed oils help moisturize without over doing it. 

The lather on this is not a high lather, it's more of a medium lather, so you might need to run it a few more times to get a bigger lather, if you like that. I personally like a lot of lather, to know I'm getting clean, and to try to get the scent to stay on my skin. 

If you like calming scents. If you like lavender and chamomile scents you will love this soap. I tend to deeply breathe while washing with soaps like this for a bit of aromatherapy. 

If you'd like to buy/try this soap you can get it at a Lush store near you, or here:

I personally love this product, but it's not my top favorite soap ever, but I would buy again and again. 

I'd give it a:
and 4/5 stars
