Lush Melting Snowman Bath Melt & Snow Cake Soap

This is a long overdue post, I've had these pictures waiting on my laptop for a while now but not had the time to get anything written about them! 
It's no secret that i'm a tad obsessed with Lush so really its a given that any time its a holiday I need to stock up on their limited editions but actually the Snowcake Soap was given to me at the FABB event in Glasgow back in October which I was super grateful for! 

Melting Snowman Bath Melt
£2.25 (Here)
Can we start off with how cute is the little guy!? 
I don't usually go for bath melts as I much prefer bubble bars or bath bombs but I couldn't resist leaving this guy behind, also for 2.25 its pretty affordable. I managed to use this twice by massacring his head and body into two and using them separately but I picked one of these up for my mum as well and she said she used hers three times so you really do get your moneys worth.
I absolutely love the smell of this, my favourite scent around Christmas time is anything spicy and this definitely has hints of cinnamon in it which left not only me but my bathroom smelling amazing after I had used it. When he melts the water turns a cloudy almost milky colour and the Shea butter inside him leaves your skin soft and moisturised. This little guy definitely provides a relaxing bath and I would fully recommend snapping one up before they disappear for Christmas!

Snowcake Soap
£3.25/100g (here)
As I said earlier I got this as a freebie from Lush at the FABB event in Glasgow, I'm so happy I did because based on the description online its something I would never have chosen but I really liked it! Online this is described as "marzipan and fruit" which to me sounds awful I hate marzipan and in the winter I tend to lean towards warmer scents than fruity ones but I didn't notice any of these when I used this soap it was more of a subtle vanilla scent. The soap lathered up nicely but what I loved most was the creamy and moisturising quality of it and the way it left my skin nice and smooth and not dry like other soaps can after washing.
The only downside of this was that I found it disappeared pretty quickly probably because of how creamy it is but I still got a good few uses out of it so I'm not complaining!

What's you favourite Lush Product??

Barry M Glitter Nails

I'm finally finished all my coursework for the year and although I have exams in January I'm free for just now and I'm making the most of it and getting excited for Christmas! and really whats a more festive nail polish combo than glitter...

I've been wearing this combination pretty much religiously lately and I absolutely love it.
The colour Amethyst Glitter is a gorgeous mix of multi-coloured glitter flecks that overall show up a bluey- purple shade. Lately (and in the above pictures) I've choose to wear it over Barry M Navy but it can be used on its own and built up with a few coats for an opaque finish.
The finish is pretty matte but if that's not your thing a clear top coat can be layered over easily. As for the wear of this I was really impressed, the second photo was taken after three days and it was still relatively chip free (yay!).
The only down side is it's a bit of a bitch to take off but that can be expected with any glitter polish really.

The polishes can be bought from Boots for only £2.99 (Link Here) which I thinks a pretty good price... but maybe I'm biased because I really love Barry M when it comes to nails.

It feels so good to have gotten a post up again I have been drowning in essay writing recently so I'm happy to get back into the blogging world again now! (or at least till my exams, yuck.)

Is everyone else as excited for Christmas as I am??

Much Love
