Lush Valentine's Day 2016 Collection
Prince Charming Shower Cream ($9.95 CAD):
A return from last year's Valentine's Collection, Prince Charming Shower Cream is made with freshly squeezed pomegranate and grapefruit juice in addition to a blend of almond oil, marshmallow root, and vanilla. The scent is super refreshing and pomegranate-y (it reminds me of POM pomegranate juice), and it lathers well and leaves the skin feeling soft and clean.

Roses All The Way Soap ($7.95 CAD):
A brand new release for this year's Valentine's Day Collection, Roses All The Way is a beautiful bar of heart-shaped soap. The design has a little bit of white and pink ombre, which makes the soap even prettier! Made with glycerin, fresh rose infusion, rapeseed oil, and coconut oil, Roses All The Way has a lovely rosy scent. I was a bit disappointed though with the longevity of the scent. I left the soap out in the open for a couple of days and the scent seemed to have faded a lot.

Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar ($7.95 CAD):
With soft notes of lavender, ylang-ylang, and neroli, this bath bubble bar is shaped like a multi-colored unicorn horn dusted with a fine film of silvery shimmers. Lush Bubble Bars are great for creating lots of bubbles in the bath but the soft florals scents of Unicorn Horn doesn't linger long. Also, I just want to note that this year's design actually looks slightly different compared to last year's!

The Kiss Lip Scrub & Lip Gloss ($9.95 CAD & $8.95 CAD):
Both releases from last year's Valentine's Day Collection, The Kiss Lip Scrub and Lip Gloss duo makes a great gift. Made with sugar, sea salt, and a healthy dash of edible heart-shaped sprinkles, the bubblegum pink Lip Scrub gently exfoliates the lips to rid of any dry flakes. The scrub also contains safflower oil which keeps the lips moisturized after exfoliation.
The Kiss Lip Gloss is formulated the same way as last year's but it's packaged in a convenient twist-up tube as opposed to a shallow tin. This is a mostly sheer balm packed with frosty silver shimmers. I almost feel like the formulation has more shimmers this year but I can't be sure.
