Lush Valentine's Day Collection // 2014

By now most of you will have caught up on the latest Lush additions and even purchased items for yourselves however this is the first year I've decided not to fill my basket both in store and online. This years collection is made up of mostly new additions, with a long awaited pink shower gel returning to the Lush shelves as Prince Charming - Marshmallow root, Pomegranate Juice and Fair Trade Vanilla, scenting the skin with a blend of grapefruit, sandalwood and geranium oils. Could Prince Charming Shower Gel (100g £4.65 250g £9.25 500g £15.95) fill the deep hole Yummy Yummy Yummy left, I'm not too sure! There's also an accompanying Neon Love (£4.25/100g) Soap, though this is always one I personally skip, I only waste Lush soap bars - packaged inside gift sets as a little heart is a sweet gesture.
The only bath product being a bath bomb Love Locket (£6.95) is still very tempting with the amount of Lush stores Instagraming it in action. Inspired by our secretive heart necklaces Love Locket contains a second bath bomb inside a casing full of paper heart confetti creating up to three romantic baths..or one if you're sharing. Fragranced with jasmine, neroli and gardenia oils you'll be set for an uplifting time. Having read others reviews I'm not alone on grumbling about it's extortionate cost as a bath bomb...others also compare it to microscopic Think Pink. Following in the footsteps of Tender is the Night massage bar from the 2013 collection newbie Close To You (£5.50) carries the scent loved by many found in Creamy Candy and Rock Star soap. The luxurious, jammy dodger shaped bar will leave your skin silky smooth and just like the name suggests...a lot closer to each other I'm sure. Tender is the Night (£6.50) returns again with a complete makeover, leaving it's soft centre for a solid form of Shea Butter and Murumuru Butter. If you didn't get round to trying TITN last year you really must since it's now staying for good!
As much as I was excited about this years Valentine's collection there's still a lot to be desired. The best Lushentines days were back to the Ex Factor, Magic Mushroom and Frog Prince.


  1. I usually buy everything but £7.95 is a bit steep for a bath bomb even from lush. I did buy the Prince Charming shower gel which smells amazing though. Also got Neon Love with smells lovely too. Glad too see The Kiss is back, loved it last time.

  2. Some of the products look nice this year but the prices have jumped quite a bit!!

  3. I love the idea of their bath bombs but I agree the pricing is just so high for what is essentially a one or two time use - but the products always smell so beautiful and the quality is great!

  4. I'm so tempted by close to you! I agree, the rest of the collection isn't really that exciting though x

  5. great post. I was a big fan of the Valentines Lush products last year but this year, you're right, it's a little disappointing! <3

  6. The Valentine's collections do seem a little bit disappoint which is why I'm going to hand select everything I get this year. There's always hope for next year though! :)
