Review: Lush Relax More Wrapped Box

Hi everyone,

Recently I received a Wrapped Box a few weeks ago and GOSH! I immediately wanted to take a bath!
I've became addicted to Lush's bath products. I was extremely happy when I got this box because it consisted of two of my favourite Lush bath products - Twilight and The Comforter.
I'm testing out their hair product and all I can say is American Cream and Happy Happy Joy Joy
They're on my LLL (Lush Lust List).

I went into their Cavendish store a few weeks ago and I was greeted with an "OH!! You're back!".
I bought my favourite bath bomb, Spacegirl and one I haven't tried before called Butterball.
The staff at both Lush stores (V&A Waterfront and Cavendish Square) are just amazing! They are like little fairies that brightens up a sharty day with their amazingness! Sometimes I just go in there to chit chat with them because I have no friends. Anyways, back to my review!


Relax More Wrapped Box Review:
"The big chill"

"Lie back, relax and think of bath times! With four different relaxing bath treats plus a Therapy massage bar to melt away any lingering stresses and strains, whoever gets this gift won't be able to resist relaxing more than ever before"

This box my dear readers does exactly that! Stress? Gone! Anxiety? Gone! Negativity? Gone! It just leaves you feeling relaxed and ready for a good night sleep without any crazy brain activities.

Here is something really interesting, the Relax More wrapping is a handmade paper from Khadi (India) with a ribbon that is specially woven for Lush. They also put a lot of thought when it came to designing the colour scheme for this box. According to their website, Lush states that "turquoise is the colour of calm and serenity".

Relax More.
This gift contains: 1x The Comforter Bubble Bar 200g | 1x Therapy Massage Bar 50g |1x A French Kiss Bubble Bar |
1x Dreamtime Luxury Bath Melt | 1x Twilight Bath Ballistic
Twilight Bath Bomb:

Twilight - One of my favourite bath bombs
What Lush has to say about this bath bomb:
Let the sun set around you as you let go of the day and drift off to a world of dreams
If you are struggling to sleep, then this is perfect for using in the evenings. With lavender oil for when you need a bit of extra help to wind down.
We’ve added visuals to this bath to help your mind let go and embrace the night time. Twilight dissolves to create a growing sunset that gradually gets darker until you are finally left with the glimmer of stars.

Ingredients: 
Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lavender Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Tonka Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil, Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, *Coumarin, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42090, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Colour 45410, Lustre Silver
*occurs naturally in essential oils

Featured Ingredient:
Lavender Oil
There are about 25-30 different species of lavender belonging to the Labiatae family and we only use a few of these. French lavender oil (Lavandula angustifolia) comes from Provence. Lavendin oil (Lavandula hybrida) comes from a hybrid plant, developed by crossing true lavender and lavender spike.

What The Jam Jar has to say about this bath bomb:
Like how pretty is that??

I am inlove with this bath bomb. It's a slow fizzing bath bomb which I love because you can watch it fizz away. It is so mesmorzing that it would take your mind off any negativity. The colours are vibrant and amazing. It leaves a cosmic visual in your bath with vivid colours like pink, blue and purple with beautiful glimmering sparkles. You can actually feel the oils in the bath when you get in and the scent of this bath bomb lingered on my skin for the longest time ever! One down fall is the fact that the sparkles are really hard to get out of the bath. My mom actually scolded me over it because it was such an effort to get out :( Sorry, Mom!

Would I purchase this again?
HELLS YEAH!!!

A French Kiss Bubble Bar:
A French Kiss - Not that awesome but it's okay :)
What Lush has to say about this bubble bar:
Lie back and think of France. Sink into a landscape of Provence lavender fields and watch the white foam clouds drift by. Just bend your legs slightly if you want a view of your own Pyreknees!
Remember those old Hollywood films where the starlet would be in a bath with a mountain of foam covering her modesty – leaving her to seductively raise one foam covered leg for soaping? Well our Bubble Bars were designed to give exactly that amount of foam if you use the whole thing. But of course you may choose to have slightly less foam in your bath, if there are no cameras around.

Ingredients: 
Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Cocamide DEA, Rosemary Oil, Thyme Oil, Lavender Oil, Lavender Absolute, Lavender Sprig, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 17200, Colour 42090
*occurs naturally in essential oils

Featured Ingredient:
Lavender Oil
There are about 25-30 different species of lavender belonging to the Labiatae family and we only use a few of these. French lavender oil (Lavandula angustifolia) comes from Provence. Lavendin oil (Lavandula hybrida) comes from a hybrid plant, developed by crossing true lavender and lavender spike.

What The Jam Jar has to say about this bubble bar:
I have mixed feelings about this bubble bar. I do like it but I don't. I love the scent but I dislike the fact that it's not as potent when you put it in the water. It's like the scent dies a little. The bubbles doesn't last that long if you don't use the entire bubble bar. I've broken it up in 3 parts and each part was fairly big. I don't know what affect it has on your skin because I've always used it with a bath bomb. 

Would I purchase this again?
Hmmm, I would if I had some extra money but it wouldn't be #1 on my list.

The Comforter Bubble Bar:
.
The Comforter - My favourite bubble bar. It smells like Unicorns
What Lush has to say about this bubble bar:
Berry yourself under a blanket of soft fruit foam
This isn’t called the Comforter for nothing. We threw everything we had at this one, to make it warming, comforting and reassuring. We wanted a bath that gave the same sense of safety and calm that your favourite teddy, your comfort blanket or a snuggly scarf gives. At times when you feel you need to protect yourself from the world  - immerse yourself in this pink bath and allow the familiar oils to envelop you in a comforting berry scented embrace.

Ingredients: 
Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Titanium Dioxide, Cocamide DEA, Bergamot Oil, Cassis Absolute, Cypress Oil, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 45410, Colour 17200
*occurs naturally in essential oils

Featured Ingredient:
Cassis Absolute
Blackcurrant belongs to the Grossulariaceae plant family and is native to Europe and Northern Asia. It is a small shrub that grows up to approximately 2m tall.

What The Jam Jar has to say about this bubble bar:
I done a review on this product a few months ago. You can check it out here.
Like I said in my previous review it's a 200g bubble bar that you can break off and use it for a good 3-5 baths (depending how big you break the pieces). It makes a lot of bubbles but it doesn't last long :( The scent is amazing and so potent and the scent does linger which ah-freaking-ma-zing!!! 

Would I purchase this again?
HELLS YES! It's one of my favourite!

Dreamtime Luxury Bath Melt:
Dreamtime Luxury Bath Melt - I really liked this bath melt 
What Lush has to say about this luxury bath melt:
When you wanna be on your own, it’s Dreamtime. All of my dreams can interlock, in Dreamtime
We made this melt for those times when you need a little extra help letting go of the day and getting yourself ready for sleep. Beautiful ingredients pamper your skin and simple oils calm the mind and allow you to enter a meditative state as you prepare for dreamtime.

Ingredients: 
Cocoa Butter, Laureth 4, Almond Oil, Lavender Oil, Ginger Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Chamomile Blue Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Jasmine Flowers, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume
*occurs naturally in essential oils

Featured Ingredient:
Lavender Oil
There are about 25-30 different species of lavender belonging to the Labiatae family and we only use a few of these. French lavender oil (Lavandula angustifolia) comes from Provence. Lavendin oil (Lavandula hybrida) comes from a hybrid plant, developed by crossing true lavender and lavender spike.

What The Jam Jar has to say about this luxury bath melt:
I really liked this product but the scent can become a bit overwhelming. I cut half of this bath melt and just a half made my bath water soft and left it smelling amazing. The scent lingered on my skin and once used with the little dude below, it kind of locks in the scent of this bath melt. The essential oils really made my skin feel softer and smoother and really moisturized.

Would I purchase this again?
I would purchase it again but it won't be anytime soon.

Therapy Massage Bar:
Therapy Massage Bar - Shmurr. It's okay!
What Lush has to say about this massage bar:
Because everybody needs a little sometimes
A deceptively simple bar that knows exactly what it’s doing. 100 percent organic ingredients.
Therapy has just the right combination of cocoa butter and shea butter to melt perfectly on the skin and give you a good softening massage. But hidden in this bar are three organic essential oils that nature has blessed with potent mood affecting benefits.

Ingredients: 
Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Sweet Orange Oil, Organic Lavender Oil, Organic Neroli Oil, *Citral, *Geraniol, *Farnesol, *Limonene, *Linalool
*occurs naturally in essential oils

Featured Ingredient:
Organic Sweet Orange Oil
This oil is obtained from the peel of the sweet oranges (Citrus sinensis) by cold expression. The sweet orange is a flowering tree with glossy, evergreen leaves and thorny branches, and it is probably native to China and the Far East. They now grow all over the world and some of the main producers are Brazil, United States, Spain and Italy.

What The Jam Jar has to say about this massage bar:
I like this bar but I really struggle to heat it up.
It's really moisturizing but I feel its a bit too sticky for morning usage. I prefer using it at night then my body has the time to soak up all it's goodness.

Would I purchase this again?
Probably not because I have my eye on Shimmy Shimmy.

If you are wanting to get a gift for someone or even for yourself, I suggest try one of these Wrapped Boxes because it offers a variety of Lush products and who doesn't like opening up presents???
I think this box retails for just over R300 which I think is really affordable for Lush products.

**A special thank you to Stardust and Wanderlust for sending me this amazing Lush Wrapped Box**

Give Lush South Africa a cheeky like on Facebook and a follow on Twitter to receive updates on their upcoming products.

Until next time..
