Lush Birthday Gifts Review - Star Light, Star Bright, Sunnyside & You've Been Mangoed

For my birthday I got two different Lush bath melts and a bubble bar. First off I'll start by saying I hate anything that smells like citrus. I do not like most citrus smelling bath products or even candles or anything like that! My family, even though I thought most of them knew I don't like citrus, got me all citrus based products! Haha! I had tried one other citrus Lush product before and it was awful, it was so so terrible and one of the worst bath bombs I've ever used. So as you probably guessed I was very skeptical of all three Lush products I received but I was pleasantly surprised and one of them even ended up being one of my all time favourite ones! So I'll start with it...






 (not a great video but you can see all the nice glitter and the lovely blue/turquoise water! Please watch on best quality possible!)

(the amazing glitter that is left on your skin after! Not gloopy or oily!)

Star Light, Star Bright

I used this one first because I thought I'd like it the least haha! But it's ended up being one of my favourites. It has a very light but really nice citrusy smell. It also had cocoa and Shea butter so it has a lovely chocolatey smell along with the citrus. It's very hard to explain but smells so good! It leaves a lovely blue/turquoise colour in the water and it's super glittery and all that glitter stays on your skin and leaves you all shiny! I've read some reviews about it and a lot of people don't like that about it and shower afterwards? You crazy people, who doesn't want to be covered in glitter?! And its not a gloopy mess either which I actually thought it might be. You could easily apply body lotion or butter afterwards and it would apply fine and you'd still have awesome glitter over you. By the next morning though most of it will be gone. I enjoyed it while it lasted. I will definitely be repurchasing this next Christmas. I'm super super sad it's only for Christmas. It could easily be a year round one.

I feel like I've gotten this one before but can't remember using it?! Or either I was thinking about getting it but its citrusiness put me off it. On the Lush site it says it has Lime, Tangerine and Sweet Wild Orange which sounds so very citrusy and one I would steer clear of but actually its really not as sharp as you'd think it would be. Its really nice and fresh. I cut it in half and had two good uses out of it but if you want it to be super bubbly I'd say use the whole thing. It also leaves a lovely golden glitter shimmer in your bath water. It doesn't stick around like the Star Light, Star Bright but is still lovely all the same.

★★★




I forgot to take any photos of this but you can look at it here on the Lush website where I got the above image from. I've only used one other bath melt that I'm aware of, Star Light Star Bright, I didn't even know it was a bath melt when I first used it. I actually thought it was a bath ballistic and just threw it into the bath and let it fizz but with this one I wasn't sure what to actually do with it. Its just like a little bar of soap! It was even melting away in my hands when I first held it. But amazingly and oddly it fizzes when you put it into the bath! It doesn't leave any bubbles or leave a particularly nice colour (it went kind of greyish orange) but it smells amazing! I didn't think I would like the smell of Mango so much. Its delicious and sweet and not very citrusy at all! Its mixed with cocoa butter so its super creamy and leaves your skin so soft. I would buy this again but its a bit pricy for the size of it.

★★★

So overall I was super happy with all of these. It has restored my fate in the citrus smelling products that Lush have and I may just be purchasing some in future. I have bought some more recently but I think most of them are non citrus but I'll review them soon.

Have you used any of these products before? Or are you thinking of purchasing some now? I would love to know! :D

Hope everyone is having a good New Year!
Thanks for reading and I'll have another blog post very soon! :)
