Review: Lush Valentine’s Day 2016 and Kitchen

Lushvalentines2

I think almost all of my Lush orders end up being this time of year with the Valentine’s, Mother’s Day and Easter products as I tend to like the scents they come out with in the ranges. This time there were a couple of the Kitchen products I wanted too so I got them as well. They were the Happy Blooming Jelly and the Happy soap. The Kitchen makes products, a different one each day of the week, and these are only available in small batches so they run out quickly. These are either old products that have been discontinued or sometimes exclusives like perfumes, Oxford Street Store products or products that are going to be released in the future.

The Valentine’s Day range doesn’t really have a theme scent wise, at least that I can tell, and some are old scents returning from previous years. I only ordered four things from the range as they were the ones that appealed to me the most. The ones I chose were Prince Charming shower cream, Roses all the Way soap, The Kiss lip gloss and the Unicorn Horn bubble bar. All of the products that I bought in the valentine’s Day range are vegan friendly. The remaining two are a lip scrub in the same scent as the lip gloss and the Lover Lamp bath bomb that has a chocolate orange scent which I am not really a fan of in bath products.

As far as I know these products are going to be available until Valentine’s Day, that’s the way they normally work but if something goes out of stock close to Valentine’s Day I think in the past they haven’t restocked them. Other times there have been limited edition products a while after they’ve been discontinued.

Review: Fortune Cookie Soap – Easter and Wonderland products

Fortune Cookie Soap are a company based in America who make bath and body products. I’ve done a couple of reviews of their soap boxes which contain sample sizes of the new releases (you can find the Wonderland one here) but I decided to make a small order with some Easter products along with a couple of the Alice in Wonderland products. They have limited run seasonal products but also smaller collections that are based on themes, often a holiday such as Easter or Mother’s Day, these are even more limited and a few of these mini collections are sometimes available at the same time. You can look at the current collections and the permanent products on their website here.

The Easter products aren’t available anymore and I didn’t make a note of what the prices were so I can’t say exactly what they cost but the Alice in Wonderland products I’ll link to if they’re still available. The three sample sized whipped creams were from scents in the Christmas range so they aren’t available any more either.
