A real Stepping Stone – Lush

Stepping Stone BannerOne thing that always “gets me” about Lush’s products are the names. Whoever comes up with these names should be awarded a “Punny medal of honour”. If you’re reading this, I salute you. I saluteThe much dreaded Sunday evening with its taste of the Monday Blues, to me, is usually a bath time feast. It’s the time of the week, where I try to relax and indulge in my favourite bath products. Just so that it’s very clear – I’ve had the worst time trying to ration my Lush products – I want to use them every day, all day long!

This week I set out to try the blue, fresh smelling, foot-shaped foot scrub called Stepping Stone. As with the Each Peach Massage bar, my purchase was based on smell. It smells like the ocean, if the ocean smelled like citrus and jojoba. At first, I wasn’t convinced that this brittle bar could quite stand up to the challenge, but as soon as it hit the water and I worked it onto my feet, I could feel the sea salt and pumice doing its magic.

How to use: Break into preferred sizes for future uses (I think I’d get about 3 uses out of it) and store in a cool, dry place. If you would like to purchase your very own Smurf maker… I mean Stepping Stone, you can head on over to the Lush site.

Ceridwen’s Cauldron – Lush Bath Melt

Ceridwen's CauldrenMy lush haul (or at least what qualifies in my books as a haul) included a Ceridwen’s Cauldren. I was partly persuaded by a video I saw by another blogger (and now I can’t remember who it was… oops), but the name of the bath melt was the final nail in the coffin.

It makes me think of the country side where a bunch of hippies live off the land with a fire and a brewing pot … and I won’t lie… I want to be there. awkies

A Cauldron is a big metal pot used for cooking and here’s what tickles my “I-see-what-you-did-there” fancy. The bath melt looks like this: Ceridwen's Cauldron in hand

Sort of pot looking, right? And if you’re relaxing in the tub, it’s almost like a big pot – cooking away the stress.

A bath melt is a slow releasing bath oil and Ceridwen’s Cauldron is a lovely combination of oats, soothing lavender and rich oils. Every bath melt is wrapped like a gift in muslin cloth and dipped in wild flowers … feeling like a hippy yet?

As the butters melt, you’ll feel your skin softening and the stresses of the day leaving your body while the wild flowers and lavender create a feast for the senses. The oats make the water milky and you’d be excused for demanding the execution of your sister, because, yes, you WILL feel like Cleopatra.

The only downside to this is the one time use. But it is a GREAT once a month or once a week (if you can afford it) spoil and it is something that you must try. If you’d like to buy yours, click here.
