Lush Northern Lights | Review

lush northern lights review
Hi Flamingos 
I know its passed Christmas now but I still have lots of unused Lush Christmas themed items to go through yet. The most recent one I used was this one 'Northern Lights Bath Bomb' which my sister kindly got me for Christmas. This is a very colourful with bright purple, blue and yellow with a lovely floral smell too it too, the bath bomb is a quite a bit bigger than the usual bath bombs that are in lush too. I honestly knew what I got from here for Christmas because I could smell it through the wrapping paper haha.

I honestly look forward to the festive range at Lush every year and they have never disappointed me yet. Every boxing day without fail I have made it to the Lush boxing day sale to see what Lush bargains I can find and I usually some lovely products that I have been wanting to try.

First Impressions
Has anyone ever played the game 'Dr Mario'? If you have this honestly reminds me of the capsules in that game which is quite quirky and fun I think. I love its unusual shape rather than the original lush round shape and I also like the how bright and bold this looks too.

As I said above I could smell this was a lush product before I even opened the present and I could defiantly tell it was a floral scent too. On the label it says it has the floral scents of 'Jasmine and Ylang Ylang'. I had super high expectations for how strong the floral scent it would be in the bath since it's so strong you can smell it through its packaging. 

Once I finally got my boiler to work ( don't ask I have been having problems with it over the past week and it ruined a previous lush bath experience 😂) I filled my bath up with warm water and once my bath  was full I put 'Northern Lights' in gently and as soon as I let go of it you could smell the aroma of 'Jasmine and Ylang Ylang' burst and honestly it was just lovely. 

Northern Lights rolled around a lot and every turn it realised more of its bright colours, each end had bright colours and the purple combined with them to make an almost northern lights display. It has one of the nicest displays. 

Once the whole of the northern light dissolved in the water it went into a dark lavender colour and I think it has sparkles in it too so it looked like the night sky.

Final Thoughts 
Northern Lights defiantly did impress me and I am so glad my sister bought me it for Christmas, she knows me very well haha. I loved everything about northern lights apart from the fact if you hold it while its in the water it leaves a little bit of a purple stain on your hands for about 10 minutes but apart from that its fab.

The smell is perfect for anyone who likes floral scents, I really liked the smell of this but to be honest it's not exactly not christmasy smell but to honest I don't mind that. 

Now I am super excited to try the Valentines day lush range 💘

Have you bought anything in Lush lately?

    Ooh, I'm going to have to invest in this. I love lush but just moved temporarily to a house with only a shower, we move again in March and will have a huge bath so I'm stocking up on Lush products now. Thanks for the post :)

    I really like this bath bomb but the end colour looked a little murky for me. I'm glad I bought a few of them though as the scent is so nice x
