My name is Jo I am in my 20s and officially a makeup beauty Addict. I have always loved playing with makeup. However It was at the beginning of this year that I finally discovered my passion. I first got into makeup in a big way when I searched for something on Youtube. I typed in the search and found all these girls talking about and experimenting with makeup. From that day on I was hooked. I have made a couple of really good friends on youtube who encouraged me to start blogging. So as I am unable to make videos myself here I am. It's early days but I have some interesting things to come. If you have anything to say about any of my posts please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks Jo x

Xmas Pressies Part 2 (About Time) A few Lush products..

I have finally got round to showing you all the rest of my Christmas Pressies. Sorry for the delay.
I didnt purchase any of these items myself. These were Christmas Presents. I will be giving my complete and honest views on these items. No company has sponsored me or asked me to do these blogposts.

I asked for quite a bit of makeup for Christmas and I didn't get some of the things I was hoping for. However I did get a lot more Lush items than i was expecting. I had asked for the Butter Ball Bath Bomb and the Comforter Bubble Bar

Here are some Pictures of Everything I recieved.

Sweetie Soap Stack:

This Contains 'Honey I Washed The Kids' (my Favourite soap that I have tried so far,) 'Rockstar' (Have tried this, it is a very nice sweet smelling pink soap) and one that I am excited to try for the 1st time 'I Should Coco'.

Cinders Bath Ballistic:

It was something I was very excited about trying so the 1st chance I got I popped it into my bath.

To be honest I was actually quite disappointed with this: Firstly it turned my bath water a very funny yellowy colour. (Obviously I expected this).

After watching numerous youtube videos I heard that the red bits on top of the bath ballistic were supposed to make a crackle noise as it melted...mine didn't.

This feature doesn't add anything special to the bath. It's just a fun gimmick but the child inside me was still looking forward to seeing it happen. I was very disappointed to find that it doesn't actually do this at all.

Mister Butterball:
This is supposed to be the christmas version of the Famous Butterball.

The Butterball is one of my favourite Lush Products I will be comparing the 2 and I will be sure to let you know how I get on.

I got two of these

Snow Fairy Shower Gel:

I have feeling I won't need to say too much about this product as 99% of people seem to have already tried it.

I would just like to ask though: Is it just me or does it smell like the Children's Medicine 'Calpol'? Thats what it reminds me of anyway. I always liked Calpol though so thats cool lol. Let me know what you think...

I actually now own 2 of will see why in my next post. Another quick question: Obviously you can use these all over the body. But can it be used by pouring some in2 the bath water? Or would that just waste it? Thanks.

I used this for the 1st time today and really liked it. I will give more of a review when I have used it more.

Snow Fairy Solid Perfume

So far I'm not really a big fan of these. Although I love sweet smells and the Shower Gel smells lovely..For some reason it seems a bit sickly as a perfume. I will try it again though before I make any decisions. (I think I also have two of these...not sure what to do with the other 1 if I have..suggestions welcome.)

Comforter Bubble Bar

This is one of my Favourite Products from Lush. I have used it 2 or 3 times and I love it

Apart from the bubbles and the smell and the pretty pink water, It is also excellent value for money...By cutting it into smaller pieces I can get at least FOUR baths with a decent amount of bubbles. (I haven't tried making it last longer but it may be possible..?) I have never used a whole one of these in 1 bath so I can't comment on the amount of bubbles a whole one makes but it would be a LOT for me a quarter is plenty.

Butter Ball x 6

The Final 2 Lush Presents I received were 2 lots of 3 Butterballs. Mum told her friend Geoff that it was one of my favourite products from Lush, (which it is) so he got me 3. His son was with him so he decided to get me 3 aswell.

This obviously means I am well stocked up on Butterballs. As I have so many I thought I might try adding other things in the baths With the butterballs. I will keep you all posted on the results if I decide to do this.

I will be doing a favourite Lush Products post at some point in the future. This product along with a few others will definitely feature in it.

Well thats everything that I got for xmas...well everything I want to show on this blog anyway.

I have another lush Post to put up. (Possibly next) This will be things I have purchased myself from the sales.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed :)


  1. I use snow fairy as bubble bath more than shower gel, creates great bubbles and the scent lingers on your skin for hours

  2. Yay! Lush! I wish I could use more of it, but I'm pretty allergic to a lot of their bath stuff.

  3. @Katy Wilko Thanks for the tip :)

    @Sirvinya aw thats a shame I now cannot have a bath without lush lol so I am now set for a couple of months...especially with all the sutff I bought. U will see a post on that eventually :)
