Last year Lush UK introduced five HUGE bath bombs shaped like Easter Eggs! Much to the delight of fans everywhere these massive bath bombs cost a mere ?9.95! Not only did you get a massive egg that you could crack apart and use in the course of several baths but it was also filled with other yummie goodies such as a piece of soap, a bath bomb, or a bubble bar!
This year Lush UK, never failing to delight us all, has brought back the popular eggs!
Sadly, if you live in the US chances are these won’t be released stateside (last year they weren’t but cross your fingers and toes or move to England). However, the good news is the lovely people at Mailorder UK really love us Americans and allow us to order from them! Sadly, airmail isn’t cheap but these eggs are only ?9.95 so the airmail cost evens out the cost of purchasing a few of these as gifts or just as a gift from yourself (I’m putting on my card, “To the Muse, From the Easter Bunny, your biggest fan!).
As soon as these lovely little eggs hit the Lush UK I’ll be purchasing all 5 for myself (because I’m a greedy little bugger) and an extra 5 to give as gifts to my little cousins (they were a huge hit with my little cousin Alexa last year!).
If you’re unsure what the hell this all means try heading over to my post about the Giant Lush Pud and it might enlighten you what these here Eggs are all about! Click!

Peter celebrated his 64th with a little Lush!
Look at the glow on his face after receiving a Green Green Bubble Bar from Lush!
I have no idea what he’s doing with the soap but I believe he’s taking a little sniff either that or he thought he could eat it! One never knows with Peter. The grapevine has told me he ate a bit of the Lush popcorn packaging and soon after realized “soap” flavored popcorn is not all that great for a snack!
This has to convince you to buy some bubble bars and soap from Lush now right?
If you haven’t been with the Muse since the start of her little blog you might be a bit confused as to who this character is. Confused? Mystery solved by clicking here.
Peter’s girlfriend Dorothy expressing her enthusiasm for Britain! I imagine she’s thinking to herself “Let’s do it for England kids!” I nicked that expression from someone sorry it was just too good not to add in!
I’m sorry I just generally enjoyed this shot and had to throw it into the mix! I had told Jonny that it would’ve been even better had she strolled out just wearing the British flag and naught else (I’m positive Peter would have loved that too)!
This pictures remind me how long and in between it’s been since I last talked to Peter :(. You won’t meet a better man to match wits with then him!
Sadly, Peter, once in love and lust with me, has left me for his beautiful Dorothy. I try hard not to be too jealous as they traipse across England together living happily ever after!
I’m kidding, I’m kidding!
I got my order from the Lush NA Party yesterday! Click here to read details about the party!
The temptation of Snowcake solid perfume was strong so I did in fact order it and some other goodies. I normally avoid ordering from Lush NA like the plague but I couldn’t resist Snowcake!
I stupidly ordered this solid perfume without first trying the lot I had already purchased from Lush UK that I got about a month ago. I finally got around to testing these out and I have to say they aren’t as great as I had hoped.
Lush Perfumes have fantastic throw, linger, and staying power however Lush solid perfumes do not.
I used Potion so far and Fever and both are very strong smelling but they don’t do much when they are on my skin. I think these are great if you happen to already own some of the perfumes in liquid form. That way you can use these as touch ups through out the day however to use these as your perfume is a bit difficult as someone has to literally stick their nose in your neck to actually get a whiff some of what you are wearing.
If you’re purchasing these from Lush NA they come in a far better tin than the Lush UK solids. Lush UK has little screw tops that I find very annoying to unscrew. If you by chance you drop the tin or get a dent in the container it’ll basically leave you struggling to unscrew the top. Lush NA tops just pop off and on and make life much easier however they do leave a bit of a mess sometimes as when you’re popping on and off it sometimes gets a bit of the solid on the lid which causes the tin to have a waxy feel.
Speaking of waxy. That’s basically the texture of these. They are a waxy balm that’s difficult to spread around so it’s best to warm it between your fingertips prior to applying.
I can’t give these a complete bad review because these actually work for one of my best mates. It seems they really like his body chemistry because when he used one it was pretty strong but when I used one it basically got soaked up into my skin and I really had to try and even get a tiny sniff of the scent I was wearing.
I love these for touch-ups when I’m using my Lush perfumes but to use on their own it’s a no go for me!
I got a 7 of the 9 scents offered and I find the strongest smelling of the lot are Fever, Potion, and Honey I Washed the Kids. Champagne Snow Showers, Snowcake, Silky Underwear, and American Cream are the lightest with the least throw!
I will say you have to layer these on quite a bit. Take some and place it behind your ears, between your breasts, on your neck, behind your knees, and on all your pulse points. So yes with a little hard work you can have yourself smelling sweet somewhat plus if you happen to heat up during the day you’ll definately see more of a throw from these! However, I still can’t give them a raving review because I just don’t think the throw is good enough to get that excited about, believe you me it’s difficult not to run around and recommend Lush as I adore and love all things Lush but these failed me somehow.
The moral of the story is at $11.95 a tin I’d say skip ‘em and buy something else! Or if your body chemistry just happens to accept and like them…lucky you…grab tons! But test, test, test, test in store and don’t be a silly sausage like the Muse and just buy without first testing!
Not liking these?
I thought I’d treat you to images of my Super-Sized Lush Pud’s demise!
As tempting as it was to throw this entire thing into my tub I did my best to refrain and crack it up so I might enjoy the sweet scent of Snowcake over the course of a few baths instead of just one (plus I don’t think I have the nerve to throw in $27 worth of Bath Bomb and soak without feeling guilt)!
My Innocent Super-Sized Lush Pud Bath Bomb (It doesn’t realize what’s coming! *evil laugh*)
A brief tap from the upper part and the bottom begins cracking….Ouch! (I almost feel guilty)
A harder tape and it begins to crack! Time for my bath!
I should get at least 6 (more if I’m frugal with the pieces) or more nice long soaks with the bomb pieces!
Grab one of these while they are still around at your local Lush (they are sadly sold out online)!
You’ll also receive some Snowcake and Bob soap (Ewww I hate Bob) inside and a coupon for 15% off your next order online or in store (all Lush wrapped gifts include a coupon)!
