The Ultimate Berry Bath

Last night i tested out the ultimate berry bath mix which basically consisted of three products with have a berry scent to them :)

For the bubble bar i used the comforter. This is a great product and one of my favourite bubble bars mainly because it is a lot larger than the other bubble bars lush have to offer. For a 200g bar its only £3.99 and you can get about 3-5 bath uses out of it. With a lush bubble bar all you have to do is crumble it under hot running water and it will make lots of bubbles, and with the comforter it also turns your bath water bright pink. If you feel like your not getting a lot of bubbles with your bubble bar it might be due to your water pressure (the faster the water pressure the more bubbles you will get ) so if you can turn up the water pressure if not just splash your hand about in the water for awhile and it will help form for bubbles. If that doesn't work then you may want to try adding more of your bubble bar. The comforter smells of blackcurrants and has a really girly and fruity scent to it :) It is a great smell and definitely one of lush's best products.

For the bath ballistic i used the one that smelt identical to the comforter which is the blackberry bomb bath ballistic. Again this smells like black currant and even has a surprise in the centre. Great bath bomb and it turns your bath water purple but mixed with the comtorter it turns your bath into a nice pinky purple colour :) again this is great for girly girls :)

Finally i added in the sweetie pie shower jelly. This is one of my all time favourite lush products and although it is preferably used in showers it can also be used in the bath aswell. I take a 2 pence sized amount and crush it into a lufa or a sponge and it lathers up really well and you can use it as a wash for you body. Again this has the same fruity smell as the blackberry bath bomb and the comforter so the smells really compliment each other and create the perfect berry bath. 

Another great lush berry scented product you could use if you want your bath extra moisturising is the happy blooming bath melt. Although this smells of cherries, the sweetie pie shower jelly also has a hint of cherry so they compliment each other and also go well with this berry scented bath. With a bath melt all you have to do is pop it into the bath and it melts away with the heat of the water to create a moisturising soak. 

Overall this was a very good bath and I would definitely recommend it to any girl who loves fruity and girly scents.

The 3 P's (purple products) Review

Here you go guys :) my review of the products in my 3 P's blog :) overall i really liked the stuff i got and would definately recommend them

Also like i said in the video i recently mixed two of my lush products, i mixed the ex-factor bath ballistic with the comforter bubble bar. This was my first time mixing my lush products and tbh it was a pretty spontaneous decision, anyway it also turned my bath water a beautiful purple colour :) and it made my bathroom smell soo soo nice and soooo milky and it left my skin feeling soft. I would definitely recommend you guys try this although not all lush store will have the ex-factor as it was a valentines day item. I recently went into my lush store after valentines day and they didn't have any ex-factors left, however they are available online at the UK website at, im not 100% about other countries, sorry. But yeah i definitely recommend this.

The Comforter and Ex-factor mixed :)

The 3 P's (purple products)

So i went into my local lush yesterday :) They were having a valentines day party :) but i couldn't stay for the party as i had my evening class at college at 6 :( and the party was between 5-8

So i went in to ask if i could get a shampoo to try out. I was very worried about asking for a sample as ive never asked before, but the lady who helped me was very nice. I told her my long story about how I'd  been looking for a shampoo for greasy hair and id been through literally all of the different brands available in boots and superdrug and everywhere else :/ Then i decided to dye my hair blonder to see if it would dry my hair out, which it did but once the colour fades my hair just goes back to being greasy. So i asked the women at lush if i could get a sample of one of the shampoo's either for greasy or coloured hair. She suggested three to me (all of which were liquid shampoos), I Love Juicy for greasy hair, Cynthia Sylvia Stout for coloured hair and Daddy-o for blonde hair. I eventually decided to ask for a sample of Daddy-o shampoo, it smells really nice although i cant really put my finger on what it smells of and the colour is beautiful. Its a lovely metallic purple colour :)

The next product i got which i had been dying to try from lush for AGES was one of their shower jellies. I smelt all of them and i loved all of them, i was so tempted to buy them all but i eventually went for Sweetie pie :) Again it is also purple and has blue glitters running through it. It smells like cherries mixed with the comforter <3 and as we all know the comforter is my favourite lush scent so i couldnt resist buying it :) cant wait to try the jelly out and let you guys know how i get on :D

And finally i got another lush product :) I got the Blackberry Bomb Bath Ballistic :) It again is also purple and has Bomb Imprinted on it. It has the same smell as the comforter (most blackcurrant) which is the main reason that drew me to it. I also read that it has a little suprise inside aswell so i cant wait to give that a bash :)

So i had a really nice day at lush picking up my three purple products :D - Daddy-o Shampoo, Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly and Blackberry Bath Bomb :D


Daddy-o free although you can get a 100g for £4.50, 250g for £8.90 and 500g for £24.50
Sweetie pie shower jelly- 100g-£2.85 and 250g-£5.70
Blackberry bath bomb-£2.75

Im Gemma and im kinda new to blogging so please be nice to me hehe. I am going to be starting up a youtube channel which i will be dedicating to lush, i love lush. I got really upset when i found out they had to shut down their website due to hackers and i thought it would be difficult for people finding out what new products they have coming out and stuff so i decided to set up a channel . I will be doing reviews and demo's of lush products, if you have any requests of things you'd like to see then email me :) Thankyou for reading and hopefully you will see me doing some videos and more blogs soon x
