Lush Strawberry Picnic Gift Box

My boyfriend surprises me all the time with Lush gift sets, Strawberry Picnic is the latest. He did a good job picking out this one as it contains all shower products. I don't have a bath in my house so it would of been pretty pointless getting a set with any bath products.

At least there's no popcorn this time! If you haven't got a clue what I'm talking about this will explain.

Summer Pudding Soap
Hmmm being 100% percent honest, (Sorry Paddy!) I don't like this soap. The scent is very off putting and there's bits of black cherries in it. This is really weird as I've loved every Lush soap I've tried in the past. I'm thinking that I maybe I got a bad one cause nothing could smell this bad!!

Grass Shower Gel
This smells exactly like freshly mown grass in the Summertime. I really like it! That said this may not be to everyones taste so definitely give it a sniff instore. The size of this product is great for travelling which is always a added plus for me.

Sugar Babe Sugar Scrub
I like the Sugar Scrubs from Lush. The only problem I have with them is that they only last for one shower. They melt the minute hot water hits them. Other than that problem nothing bothers me about this product. Lush Sugar Scrubs are very coarse so I don't know how well they'll work for people with very sensitive skin.

Strawberry Feels Forever Massage Bar
This massage bar has a lovely scent, a mixture between sweet and fruity. If you remember the Yummy Yummy Yummy shower gel that was discontinued, this smells the exact same. I've used Lush massage bars in the past and I have found them to be so moisturising. I use them only at night though as they do tend to leave my skin feeling quite greasy at first which is the only downside of this product.

Besides from the soap, I love everything in this gift box. As it was a present I have no idea how much it cost.  They should be able to tell you in your local Lush store.

Have you tried any products from the Strawberry Picnic Gift Box?

  6. I tried Lush a few months back, mostly there facial stuff, and it was amazing for my skin. I wanted to get the strawberry massage bar, because I love strawberries, but im not much of a lotion person. Anything close you would recommended that fruity?

    1. I love their skincare products especially Ocean Salt!!... I find the Shower Jellies really nice too, they have very fruity scents! Hmmm besides the massage bars I think most of their creams have sweet scents! xxx

  7. I only use the Sugar Scrub to exfoliate my hands. It is quite coarse, but my hands feel really nice after using it.

  13. I am asking my boyfriend for a gift box from LUSH because I love reading your reviews...
    I have reallyreallyreally sensitive skin, do you think Lush products will react badly with me? or will it possibly be okay because it's mainly natural???

    1. Awwww I'm glad you enjoy reading them hun:D Hmmm I think the best thing to do is ask for a sample before you buy a giftbox. That way you can try it out and see if it works for you. xx
