To me, Valentine’s Day isn’t just about getting a gift for a significant other. I think it’s also about appreciating yourself, and taking the time to show yourself a little bit of love.
Every Valentine’s Day I remember my favorite quote from the amazing RuPaul: “If you don’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?”
If you want to show yourself – or someone else – some love, you can’t get much better than the Heart of Gold ($49.95) set at Lush.
Buy this and you won’t just be giving to yourself, you will also be giving to others since every Heart of Gold set sold equals a donation to the Charity Pot fund.
And if you are looking for a gift for someone else, this is perfect – check out the great gift tag that lets you insert your own card! Plus Lush also puts extremely helpful product descriptions in each package for any Lush virgins.
Here is what is inside this beautiful set:
Willow Pattern Soap
The Lush website shows this in a traditional soap shape, but mine arrived as a pretty round bar.
It has this truly beautiful shiny blue shimmer on a creamy white soap.
It smells of lemons and rosewood, and it is fantastic. Plus the fact that it’s limited edition makes me love it even more!!
Check out the gorgeous rose petals in this bath bomb.
It has a beautiful jasmine scent, and thanks to the soya milk in it your bath water becomes a soft, milky purple-pink.
From Dusk til Dawn
Ok, I thought Sex Bomb was sexy until I saw From Dusk to Dawn…this wins the prize as the most provocative product. Does it look like a pencil? Or like Madonna’s cone bra??
This massage bar is great for a rub down, and it smells of orange and lemon, both yummy scents that give you energy for anything else you feel like doing…wink wink.
Charity Pot is full of a cocoa butter based lotion that smells of chocolate and roses.
This beautiful body lotion is one of the ways that Lush gives back to the world, as they donate every cent to charities around the world.
Every time you spread the lotion on your skin you are spreading love around the world!
A French Kiss
Oooh la la!!! Who doesn’t love French kisses (well, French kisses with a good kisser anyway. I have some horrid memories of pretty bad ones back at that 8th grade dance…) This is a spectacular bubble bar that is perfect before bed. Nothing like soaking in beautiful purple bubbles before getting busy.
Soft Coeur (the Honeymooner)
This massage bar smells like chocolate, but instead of leaving nasty fat deposits on your thighs, it leaves them feeling super soft and pampered.
It is a perfect Valentine’s chocolate to share with someone you love. If you aren’t a honeymooner, you can certainly act like one!
So listen to me and listen to RuPaul, the guy who looks better in lipstick than anyone I know – give yourself some love so you can show everyone else in your life a whole lotta love!! And start by loving yourself enough to get that Heart of Gold at Lush. – Lisa
