Lush Cocktail: A Spoonful Of Lush Helps The Stress Go Down

Lori's 'A Spoonful Of Lush Helps The Stress Go Down' Cocktail




Sometimes the simple things in life are the most impressive. Such is the case with this Lush Cocktail. Not only is this one of the most cost-effective cocktails I have yet to experience, but it also happens to be one of my favourites. Featuring three regular products - all with completely different smells, but all of which compliment each other wonderfully, this is a bath that I will be coming back to again and again. 

Playing homage to the popular film, Mary Poppins, A Spoonful Of Lush Helps The Stress Go Down Cocktail is a bit of a mouthful to say - no pun intended. Not only is this a highly sweet and slightly sultry experience, it also happens to be a visually beautiful one as well - a great tribute to the classic. 

First - crumble the Pop In The Bath Bubble Bar under the running tap. This shares its scent with the popular Olive Branch family so will immediately fill your bathroom with a strong, refreshing mandarin and vine leaves aroma. It's a fragrance that needs to be experienced in order for people to recognise its beauty. 

While the bubble bar is brightly coloured, the water is less desirable and comes out disappointingly clear. While the fragrant bubbles are enough to entice you in, it wouldn't be the best experience on its own. 

For this reason, you must next add in half of a Blackberry Bath Bomb. This stunning ballistic has grown on me each and every time that I have used it and I now consider it a firm favourite amongst the regular items available for general sale. This beautiful bath bomb turns the water into a gorgeous shade of deep purple and gives off a mouth-watering aroma that overpowers the Pop In The Bath quite quickly. 

With apricots, currants and coconut all included in making this bath bomb, Blackberry gives off a strong, powdery and very decadent aroma that makes you wish you could drink the water it creates! Not only does it make this experience what it is, its also one of the most moisturising bath bombs that Lush offer so the water is already thick with the essential oils that are going to leave your skin feeling impeccable. 

Finally, while you don't really need it for moisture, add in half of a Butterball Bath Bomb. This adds in a generous helping of cocoa butter and compliments the fragrance of the other two products and deepens it with it's own chocolately goodness. 

Together, these three products create a strong-smelling, highly nourishing and all round amazing experience in the bath. You exit the tub feeling like a new person and is perfect for when your skin is dry from the heat of the sun or the coldness of the winter weather. I will never not have these three products handy to throw in the tub at a given notice. An absolutely splendid Lush Cocktail.

  1. Is there a particular way to cut the bath bombs in half, because I can imagine it crumbling everywhere, thanks in advance xx

    1. I use a butter knife or a flat head screwdriver and a hammer and place the knife/screwdriver right where the crease to the two parts of the bath bomb meet and tap it a few good times. They usually come right apart 😀

    1. Pretty much! I'll do a video on 'how to' a variety of Lush products! Perhaps that'll be my next one! 😀
