Snow Fairy and Merry Berry Christmas shower gels, I have never tried lush shower products before but I decided to give them a try, I am a mad bubble bar fan so you can completely understand my newbie reactions to these, Snow Fairy is amazing, it smells exactly like sherbet and its amazing, a delightful share of pink with some sparkles, I cannot get enough of it! if you love sweet scents then please get this, its wonderful.

Merry Berry Christmas smells so fruity, its made with real blueberry juice, its a bit thicker than Snow Fairy but that doesn’t take away from the fact its delightful, its a lovely shade of dark green which I was surprised by because all the images I had seen of it, it came across a purple/green shade but its of course also full of sparkles, how can you have Christmas without sparkles?

Bubble Bars

Plum Snow, Brightside and Candy Mountain are the three bubble bars I picked up this time, I wasnt impressed with the scent of plum snow, the color was beautiful and I hope to pair it with Sunnyside (the fun glitterfilled one) in future but I wasnt to sure of it, it doesnt have much of a scent for me personally but as I said, amazing purple colour

Brightside has to be my favorite bubble bar, it smells like oranges and is delightfully citrus scented, it turns the water orange and just wonderful, there isn’t much I can say about it other than its personally the best.

Candy Mountain was also a good one, scented similar to Snow Fairy so whenever I used it I paired it with the shower gel, turned the water a light shade of pink, if you liked Snow Fairy please get this too and you will get out smelling like a sweet shop!

What do you think of these, have you tried any? whats your favorite Lush product?

Until Next time

Lush Sleepy – Does it work?

We’ve all seen it, all over the newspapers and in the mum forums, Lush have this wonderful new body lotion which has a mix of lavender and oatmeal. its advertised as a ‘relaxing and dreamy’ lotion you put on after a bath. (you can find it here)

But is it worth its weight in gold? did it actually work?

Lavender has been used in many baby products in the past, it as antiseptic and anti inflammatory properties and is also used to help calm anxiety suffers, I myself use a lavender oil roll on that I apply to my chest before I go to bed.

I ran a few tests, I tried her with a bath and the body lotion, just the body lotion itself with no bath and obviously a control of no bath, no body lotion and this is what I found

The nights that I bathed and used the body lotion she was asleep before 7 oclock, our bed time is around half 6 in the evening, I try and keep her up later but shes set in her ways haha, When I try just the body lotion, she sleeps a little later but you can kind of tell that shes relaxing and of course when I do neither she us up yelling at us until 7:30..

BUT… I am not sure if its the lotion doing it or just the fact i’m taking the time to sit down and rub her belly and her feet, making her relax, shes always sleepy after a bath anyway So I know the main factor in that is just her having a nice bath..

I think its going to be a case of if it works for you, then it works, and I am still not sure if its worked for R, I know for me when I use it I am out for the count haha, but we are going to take any sleep she gets while using the body lotion as a good night, I will say however that the nights we use ‘Sleepy’ on R, she does go all the way through.

whether its the body lotion or her just growing up.. I don’t know.

Have you ever tried Sleepy? Would you try it knowing all the other stories from it.

Until next time
