LUSH Spring Tin review + photos (2013)


             Spring has sprung --- and with it, a whole new batch of fragrant goodies at LUSH Cosmetics! Today I'm sharing the LUSH Spring Tin, which I've been enjoying thanks to the folks at LUSH. If you've been following Cute and Mundane for some time, you might know that 1) I collect LUSH tins and 2) I love art! The LUSH Spring Tin is a wonderful amalgamation of those two things; the cover and sides are decorated with the artwork of German artist Roman Klonek. Klonek has a passion for woodcut printing and finds inspiration in old fashioned cartoons, especially Eastern European styles.

          Inside the LUSH Spring Tin, there's a collection of seven different items that channel the fresh cut grass and flowers of springtime. They include: The Brightside Bubble Bar, Sugar Scrub, Carrot Bubble Bar, Grass Shower Gel, Bohemian Soap, Avobath Bath Bomb, and Secret Garden Bath Bomb.



          LUSH The Brightside Bubble Bar is a big (7.0 oz!) and bright bubble bar that you can crumble under running water to create a heap of citrus scented bubbles. I think you could split this into at least 2 or 3 baths (but no-one's going to judge if you toss the whole thing in and go for a literal mountain of bubbles).


          LUSH Sugar Scrub is a classic LUSH item. It's a ginger and fennel scrub that's great for working away unwanted bumps and cellulite. LUSH Carrot Bubble Bar is LUSH's best smelling 'vegetable'. This reusable bubble bar isn't crumbled; if you hold it by the green tuft under running water, lemon and buchu scented bubbles will appear! One 'carrot' can be used for multiple baths.


          Grass Shower Gel is a fresh scented shower gel full of wheatgrass extract; it's almost like showering in a meadow! There's also a dash of uplifting neroli. LUSH shower gels get a lot of love in my household (even from the Mr.) so this gets a thumbs up. Bohemian Soap is a lemon-scented soap. It's full of real lemon oils to cleanse and tone the skin, as well as to stimulate the senses.


          Avobath Bath Bomb is one of my favorite bath bombs! It has a zesty lemongrass scent that's a perfect energizer after a long day. It's full of avocado and olive oils to moisturize. Secret Garden Bath Bomb is part of LUSH's limited edition spring collection and is also sold separately. It's full of rose absolute, sweet wild orange, and rosewood oil. You'll find that this bomb releases a number of real flower petals too, to decorate your bath (a secret garden indeed)!


          The LUSH Spring Tin ($56.95) is a fresh set, perfect for adding a sprinkle of spring to a shower or bath-time routine. Roman Klonek's artwork decorating the tin is awesome and and I like that most of the products can be used multiple times. Overall, two thumbs up --- a great gift for oneself or for moms on this Mother's day!

Thanks for reading! Have you ever tried LUSH tins? Which products from the LUSH Spring Tin stand out to you?

Love, Dovey.

  2. The tin is so cute, but I am hesitant to try LUSH. The smell in their store is so overwhelming, I'm scared that the products will be too heavily scented for me.

    1. Hi Elizabeth, Thanks for the comment! LUSH stores definitely have their distinct fragrance; however their products do run the gamut. There are definitely products with light or little scent as well!
