I don’t really like florals all that much. When it comes to fragrances I prefer sweet, fruity, or foody blends. I love, love smelling sweet. I just associate sweet smells with being girly for some reason.
However, some products that are floral smelling occasionally make there way onto my radar one of which is Lush Limited Edition Shower Gel Ghost. A few months ago I brought some Ghost and promptly fell in love with the interesting, refreshing lily blend of it.
No doubt that Lily Savon smells like Lily of the Valley but I get more from it than that. It’s a bit lemony, a bit floral, and all fresh! I adore washing my hair with Ghost and pairing it up with this soap! The scent seems to linger with me all day and I just smell so fresh and gorgeous!
The soap is pure perfection, as all Lush soaps are, and lathers up like a dream! It’s quite like a slice of butter…..so soft, melty, and moisturizing! And that heavenly scent of lilies! The subtlety of this blend is both girly and gorgeous!
This one is on my must have list! Definitely try it out your next trip to Lush! The Muse loves it!
By any chance do you have a calendar that you’re using to mark off the days until Christmas? I do. But it’s not because I love Christmas, I do and all, but I’m actually using the calender to mark off the days until I can buy more Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel.
Hey, call me obsessive but I love Snow Fairy! That sweet candy smell, those luxurious foaming bubbles, the beautiful pink color…I’m all over it!
The Muse stocks up on bottles and bottles of Snow Fairy every Christmas since Lush Cosmetics only introduces it once a year (those cheeky people make us wait year round to get our greedy hands on it!).
Now I also happen to stock up on major bottles of Snow Fairy because you never can quite tell what Mark and his crew are up to at Lush and whether or not Snow Fairy will make it’s reappearance come Christmas! Just to be safe I stockpile Snow Fairy like nobody’s business and I patiently tick the days off on my calender until I know for sure it’ll be back with me again to celebrate the holidays!
The bad news is indeed that it only comes round once a year but let me tell you the good news…..come closer….closer….
It’s now in soap form.
Do you love me for telling you?
Lush recently introduced Godmother to it’s soap line in the UK and it’s now available here on this side of the pond so go, you, now and grab some at your local Lush!
The Godmother happens to look like Angel’s Delight soap but the Muse could care less since it smells of her beloved Snow Fairy she’s on top of it. I only have a slice of Godmother that my best mate Libby, who lives in London, sent my way so I don’t have an official photo of the soap for you! However, the Muse promises it’s glittery, pink, and all good things girlish!
If you simply adore Snow Fairy you must grab a chunk or too! Or you’ve never tried Snow Fairy know that the Muse gives it a might approval for purchase so go and grab some. I promise you won’t be sorry!
The Godmother is granting your wishes now at your local Lush Cosmetics or click on over and buy a slice or for $5.95 USD! Click!
P.S. Don’t blame me if you become addicted. Snow Fairy=Crack.
Lush Cosmetics has a special knack for discontinuing some of my very favorite products. Lush normally runs through items that aren’t selling well at year’s end and they end up axing them and putting out a fresh new line in the place of some old favorites.
Most Lush addicts fail to understand they mystery of the dreaded discontinue list as many of the items seem to be selling great so why stop making them? No items are immune when it comes time to chop the line up and do away with the old and bring in the new! Bad news for Lush lovers everywhere when that happens!
But I do have good news! Phew!
Lush UK has been running something called Retro Lush for the past few months now which brings back old favorites. This first began as a series of races and those items ordered enough from the site would be made up and brought back for purchase. Soon after these “races” they decided to just bring back all the old favorites and sell them as regular items! Yay! The Muse did indulge in ordering from Lush UK and stashing away large quantities of bath bombs, shampoo, and other yummie items!
But the good news is if you fear the scary airmail prices from UK to US you can now get Retro Lush from the Lush US site! Wahoo!
Do click on over to begin the shopping frenzy!
If you need help making your selections from Retro Lush or you’d just like further information my comment box is open!
I lurve me some Lush and have tried everything in the store!

It’s starting to warm up here in New York. It’s not quite humid yet nor is it sweltering hot but it’s warm enough to make my normally dry skin take on a tinge of oily!
My forehead suffers most in the Summer and becomes a fun mirror of shine and oil!
Never fear, Lush is here to save the day!
When the weather warms up and I know my skin will begin it’s descent into the depths of oily hell I turn to Lush Tea Tree Water to clear up my skin and make it matte and normal once again!
I spritz this on in the AM prior to my normal moisturizer and it mops up excess oil and preps my skin for my moisturizer! When I take off my makeup for the night I spritz it on again prior to my night cream! It keeps me oil free for about 5-6 hours depending on how hot it is and how long I’m outside! You can of course tote it around for fresh ups but I wouldn’t recommend using it on a made up face! I never have to worry about this drying out my face the way normal toners do as it’s 100% Alcohol Free which makes it gentle on my skin and not tight feeling after spraying on!
If you happen to suffer from acne this is a wonderfully refreshing toner for detoxing your clogged pores and not drying out your skin! I personally use it on my T-Zone during warmer days when oil rears it’s ugly head!
The smell is refreshing and it doesn’t sting the way some toners tend too!
For me it’s an absolute “must have item” for the long, hot Summer ahead!
Good-bye oily skin! Hello, Gorgeous!
Lush Tea Tree Water is most definately Muse Approved for purchase!
