Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail | Lush Easter Range 2017

As you probably already know, I absolutely love it when Lush release one of their limited edition ranges, so when I had heard that they had released their Easter 2017 range, I of course had to pop down to my local Lush store and give everything a sniff. After been shown the entire range by a really nice staff member at Lush White Rose, I eventually bought a tub of the Flopsy Face Wash Jelly, a bottle of the Wash Behind Your Ears Shower Gel, and a block of the Chocolate Easter Egg Soap, and I thought that I would tell you what I thought of them.

Here’s what Lush say about the Flopsy Face Wash Jelly, the Wash Behind Your Ears Shower Gel, and the Chocolate Easter Egg Soap.

The Flopsy Face Wash Jelly.

What’s up doc? Whether you’re late for a very important date, feeling a little miffed, or just need a little recharging, you’re sure to be jumping for joy when cleansing fresh Carrot infusion and Carrageenan extract reveals your velveteen skin.

Wash with this jolly jelly, and zesty Lemon and Bergamot oils will leave you feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed.

The Wash Behind Your Ears Shower Gel.

You’ll want every inch of your body to smell as addictively fresh and familiar as this Jasmine and Rose gel, – even your ears!

So lavish your skin in a bouquet of floral fragrance, and be uplifted by notes of Neroli, while conditioning Organic Sunflower oil leaves your skin feeling soft and sunny.

The Chocolate Easter Egg Soap.

No need to tear yourself away from the sweet stuff, just bring it into the bathroom with you, in the form of this skin-loving Lemon oil and vegan white chocolate lathering soap.

Rich, creamy Chocolate entwines with comforting sweet vanilla and zesty citrus oils, to create a feast of cleansing conditioning suds, that will make you never want to leave your bathroom again.

It’s scent.

I really liked the scent of this, as it shared it’s scent with one of my favourite products, the Bunch Of Carrots Reusable Bubble Bar.

I also thought that it’s mixture of fresh Carrot infusion, Lemon oil, and Bergamot oil made for an extremely invigorating scent, which was just what I needed when I washed my face in the morning.

What it did when I used it.

I did find it a little hard to use, as I don’t get on that well with Lush’s jellies, especially with me being visually impaired.

When I was in store, a really nice staff member showed me two ways in which I could use this. The first was to take the entire block of jelly out of it’s tub, roll it all up into a ball, and glide it across my face, but as the tub contained 200g of jelly I found this quite tricky, and tended to use the second method, which was to tare a little  bit of the jelly off, rub it in between my palms, and then massage the lather that it had created into my face. I did find this a little easier, but not by much, as the jelly became incredibly slippery and more often than not slid out of my hands.

When I did manage to apply this to my face, I noticed that it gave quite a nice lather, which was more of a balmy lather than a full on soapy lather, but I loved it all the same.

Another thing that I really liked about this, was that it was great to use all over my face, including my eyes. I have quite sensitive eyes, and most face washes tend to irritate them in some way or another, but I was not only able to use this around my eyes, I was also able to use it on my actual eyelids without them being irritated.

It’s results.

I wasn’t really expecting this to do much more than clean my face, as it is after all just a face wash, but as well as cleansing my face and washing away the grime of the day, this also left my skin feeling incredibly matte and left a gorgeous fresh scent that I could smell all day.

It’s scent.

This had a very unusual scent to it, that was actually rather confusing, as in it’s bottle it smelt like a mixture between the Bunch of Carrots Bubble Bar, the Happy Hippie Shower Gel, and the Prince Charming Shower Cream, as it had quite of a sweet fruity scent to it, but then when it was on my skin, all of the Jasmine, Rose, and Neroli came out to create a nice delicate floral scent that kind of reminded me of the smell you smell when you walk past a florists.

 

What it did when I used it.

Even though this was a shower gel, it didn’t really lather up like a traditional shower gel would, but I did notice that a little bit went a very long way, as I only needed about four or five drops to cover my entire body.

One thing I didn’t like about this was it’s thickness, as it was that thick that I struggled to get it out of it’s bottle at times, which made it really hard to use.

It’s results.

I was actually rather impressed with this, as I wasn’t expecting it to be that moisturising, but after I had used this, my skin felt amazing and I didn’t even have to use a moisturiser afterwards.

It’s scent.

I wasn’t really a fan of this when I first smelt it, as I thought that it smelt incredibly sweet, but after using it for a little while, it actually strangely grew on me. I still think that it was incredibly sweet, but the mixture of Lemon oil and vegan White Chocolate combined together to create a really nice rich indulgent scent that kind of reminded me of my favourite White Chocolate Lemon Meringue Easter Egg.

What it did when I used it.

Like most of Lush’s soaps, this didn’t really lather up like a traditional soap would. It did lather up a little bit, but it was more of a balmy lather than a foamy one, which was a little bit of a shame, as if it had lathered up a little bit more, I would have probably liked it a lot more.

It’s results.

I was actually rather impressed with this, as even though it didn’t really lather up, because it contained so many different oils, it actually left my hands feeling intensely moisturised without leaving them feeling greasy. I also noticed that although this had a very subtile Lemon scent to it, it did last on my skin for a really long time.

My overall thoughts.

Overall I would have to rate the Flopsy Face Wash Jelly a nine out of ten, the Wash Behind Your Ears Shower Gel a seven point five out of ten, and the Chocolate Easter Egg Soap a seven point five out of ten. I absolutely loved the Flopsy Face Wash Jelly, as it came from one of my favourite Lush scent families, but I would have preferred it to be in a liquid form rather than a jelly, as I just don’t get on with them. I really liked the Wash Behind Your Ears Shower Gel, as I thought that including a Carrot Infusion was quite unique, but I would have preferred it to absolutely reek of Carrots, because if you’re going to use an unusual ingredient, you need to know that it’s there. I did like the Chocolate Easter Egg soap, but like the shower gel, I would have preferred the Lemon to be a lot more stronger, rather than being so subtile that it was almost unnoticeable.

If you would like to check out any of these three amazing products  for yourselves, then you can either pop into your local Lush store, or you can buy them online here.
