Lush Valentine's Day 2019 My Top Picks

Christmas is well and truly over but the next big holiday is Valentine's Day! I don't really believe in it but I do love the pink/red themed gifts, flowers and chocolates and the fact that everything is heart shaped.

I always look forward to Lush products when it's holiday themed and this year screams cuteness and the naughty emoji shaped bath bombs will definitely make a great gift for your other half or for yourself! I have picked five super awesome products from the collection that I think are pretty cute and well, perfect to try out first. Prices range from £3.50-£39.95!

From L to R: Love Boat Bath Bomb £4.50, Peachy Bath Bomb £3.95, Knickerbockerglorious Giftset £12.95, Love Token Bubble Bar £4.95 and American Cream Shower Gel £5.95.

Love Boat Bath Bomb
I believe this was in last year's collection and what's not to love? This brightly coloured bath bomb is definitely one show stopper. This uplifting bath bomb contains Sweet Orange, Sicilian Lemon and Rose oils to make this one very optimistic bath product, it will even leave a huge trail of glitter! For a fun bath I would definitely recommend this, a very insta worthy bath bomb too!

Peachy Bath Bomb
Isn't this SO adorable?! I just love how Lush have released a peach and a aubergine emoji shaped bath bomb this year!! This contains uplifting grapefruit oil, REAL Peach juice and Davana oil to gently cleanse and refresh. I can definitely imagine how incredible the scent must be, if you LOVE peach scented anything then go get this one. Your bath water will have swirls of pink and orange and I think this one should stay all year round!

Knickerbockerglorious Giftset
This brightly coloured package would brighten up anyone's day! This contains two products: American Cream Shower Gel and American Pie Body Conditioner. Your skin will smell good enough to eat! Imagine being wrapped in a scent of strawberries and vanilla! You'll literally smell like a milkshake! Perfect if your skin is in need of some major TLC, these products will moisturise and hydrate the skin beautifully.

Love Token Bubble Bar
OK so I had to add this in my top picks because a) it's covered in gold lustre and b) it apparently smells like homemade biscuits!! This really is such a treat that I would probably keep for myself since I am so into bakery style scents. A very comforting scent for the winter months, can this not stay in the permanent line?!? The bubble bar contains Ginger oil, Pine Needle absolute, Clove Bud oil and Guaiacwood oil. Now you can warm up someone's day, literally!

American Cream Shower Gel
This bubblegum pink shower gel is the ultimate treat and without the calories!! If you are into sweet scents, you will love this shower gel since it contains Strawberry juice, Orange juice, Vanilla absolute and Clary Sage oil. Think 50s diner... I just hope this never goes away!

Are you going to pick up anything from the Valentine's collection?

OPI Cuticle Revitalizer Oil in Honey Peach Review

Cuticle oils are something that I am using more often and it should be a must have in your beauty routine if not already. I came across these easy cuticle oil pens that came in every scent possible and I knew I had to add this into my beauty drawer.
I love peach scents so choosing this one was a no brainer, this truly is such a nice pen to have on your dresser and for using on the go. I need I might need to buy another just so that I can keep this in my purse or in my luggage.

Product description:
This unique natural revitalizing complex blend of peach extract, mango extract, calcium, safflower oil and vitamins to nourish moisturize and protect the cuticles and nails. Panthenol (vitamins B5) penetrate the nail surface and carry calcium, vitamins and nutrients to the nail matrix.

This particular oil contains all of the right vitamins to create the ultimate concoction for healthy and longer nails. I have just started using this and already I can see a huge difference to my cuticles and my nail's condition.
I have quite brittle nails so using an oil, applying the right hand cream and using a strengthener is a must for me. Nail care is so important but we sometimes do neglect it.

You just simply twist the pen, and then you apply the oil with the bristles. It's so easy to use and I never seem to waste any either which is great. I make sure to take some time out to massage my nails and cuticles daily.
In terms of scent, it isn't overpowering but more of a natural scent that really reminds me of summer! Fresh and juicy peaches, such a lovely uplifting and fruity scent. Glad I picked this one.

The oil contains some very nail loving ingredients, it contains Grapeseed oil, Amino Acids, Natural Keratin, Organic Calcium, Safflower oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Sesame oil, Vitamin B-5 and Vitamin E!! Basically food but for the nails instead, amazing that it contains 10 ingredients!!

Bonnie Choice Powder Blush in 'True Love' Review

Hi lovelies I hope you all had a lovely new year's eve. Let's bring more peace and love in 2019 and I really hope to see more bloggers supporting other bloggers, stay positive and most importantly happy! Let's kick off the new year with a brand new make-up review!

Blushers. I just cannot live without them. I wear blusher daily and I also rotate shades depending on my mood. On thing is for sure though, you will find more pink hues than any other colour. I was on the lookout for a skin brightening pink and this sweet bubblegum shade really caught my eye.

The sleek black packaging really reminds me of NARS cosmetics and this lovely little compact is great for on the go and to keep in your handbag/make-up bag. Scroll down to see the stunning pink and a swatch!

I opted for the shade 'True Love' which is such a perfect name to call this colour. Unfortunately there is no mirror but the compact feels sturdy and is easy to open/close.

This can suit any skin tone and seeing as this blusher is incredibly pigmented, you only really need a small amount to create the ultimate flush of colour that also looks natural too. The silk-like powder means you are able to blend effortlessly, which makes the formula a real winner! I have also noticed that my complexion looked alot healthier and glowy but without the need of any glitter/shimmer. This lasted for such a long time on my combination skin, the blush lasted a good 7-8 hours which is pretty remarkable. The vibrancy stays for quite some time which is why I needed to rave about this, you could touch up here and there but I honestly didn't need to.

I have been wearing this alot lately, I just cannot get enough of this particular pink! I am so happy with the formulation and longevity that I don't think I'll be switching my blusher with another one anytime soon.

What blusher shade do you opt for? Pinks? Corals? Berries?
