Metamorphosis, Lord of Misrule, and Damaged Lush Reviews

purple bath

So after a long  week of partying the best thing to do for your body is load up with water and relax. My favorite way to relax is with a good bath and pamper myself. After all the pool parties and the humid weather of Miami spring break took a toll on me. I could definitely use some time to spoil myself. This week I choose a hair treatment and some muscle soothing bath products all from Lush.

Everyone has their own way of taking care of themselves, some prefer to go to the nail salon others like me can sit in a bath tub for hours. Different products can have different effects on your mood. For examples some bath bombs can help with sleep, while some like the one I chose for this bath can help sooth muscles. I needed some relief after all that dancing! As for my hair treatment I chose one from lush as well, after the pools and beach and usual bad shit I put it through I decided it was time to show it some love and chose the one that sounded most appropriate.

rating: 4/5

This quite odd looking bath bomb is metamorphosis, don’t let it’s grey exterior fool you. The inside is packed full of colors. Once the silver exterior melts away is when the colors really start to pop. It’s round but has a texture on it. The smell is just divine quite spicy, and it lingers for hours. Spicy but in the most subtle way possible. I would recommend this for when you are feeling sore or a bit under the weather. This is also good if you just aren’t into the fruity scents.

rating 5/5

This is a Lush classic scent Lord of Misrule. I love it, spicy, earthy and sweet. This is a green shower cream that will leave your skin soft and feeling moisturized. It is not as spicy as metamorphosis but they are in the same scent family. This can be used as a unisex shower cream. I recommend that everyone own a bottle of LOM at home.

rating 2/5

So after spring break and dying my hair I thought it could use some TLC. I went ahead and ordered the Damaged hair treatment. Let me start by saying I have a lot of long thick hair so I thought this little lollipop looking thing was not going to melt out to cover my hair. Boy was I wrong. There was enough to last me two treatments! The only problem is they must be used fresh. I just melted it down per the instructions on the paper and stirred with the wood thing that’s actually a spoon (COOLEST PART) and globbed it on my hair. The reason I didn’t give it a higher review is due to the fact of the smell, it was gross. I had to add my own lavender essential oil to be able to bear it. After I washed it with normal shampoo it left my hair AMAZING. It did take a while to wash it out.  But after the abuse I put my hair through it needed some lovin.

 

After me spoiling myself here is a picture of the ultimate spoil a pink drink from Starbucks. No filter so you can see the results of the Damaged hair treatment. More reviews and what not coming at you keep up on twitter and instagram! @stardustfunk

My First Lush Review, Blackberry and Blue Skies

bomb and bubble bar

So like most lush addicts I have started and can’t get enough. When i think of Lush i remember being a kid and walking by the store and just smelling everything with my mom holding my hand. Now that I am old enough to buy “the smelly stuff” it’s dangerous because I want everything. So join me on my journey of reviewing the amazing lush products from Lush Cosmetics, Lush UK, and the Lush Kitchen. This is my first review on two of the products from the regular line available year round.

backberry bath bomb ingredients

The first product I am going to review is the Blackberry Bath Bomb. Don’t judge a book by its cover when it comes to this bath bomb. While it may not produce the craziest bath art, you are in for a little surprise, it does release the most mesmerizing scent. The best way to describe it is a musky-sweet scent, and no it does not smell like blackberries. The main scents are bergamot and frankincense. The scent will linger for hours. Not too strong and not to fruity, perfect for relaxation and disconnecting from the world. I used this bomb before bed, having anxiety and insomnia this helped me drift into dreamland.

The second product I am reviewing is the Blue Skies and Fluffy Clouds Bubble Bar. (pictured on the top)I tend to bath cocktail and thought these two would go good together since they have similar ingredients and smell quite musky. I only used the tip of this massive frankincense, cinnamon, and patchouli bubble bar. It smelled much stronger out of the bag but mellowed out once crumbled into the bath. It created giant bubbles and added a blue tint to my already purple water. The scent was not too strong and blended well with the blackberry bath bomb. This added to my already relaxing bath, I mean who doesn’t love bubbles?

I now know not to leave lush without at least one Blackberry Bath Bomb. I highly recommend it, I give it a 4/5 stars because it is simple but that scent puts it over the top!!! It really helped me wind down after a stressful day. I will keep the surprise inside a secret for you to find! The Blue Skies and Fluffy Clouds Bubble Bar is massive and has a more herby scent. I recommend it, and give it 4/5 stars because of its size. This bar is for those who aren’t into the fruity blends.

PS. to go with my purple bath and take the relaxation a notch I used the stardustfunk unicorn facemask that’s why my face looks purple, I only wish I was a unicorn

DIY Last Minute Christmas Gifts

So if you’re like me you are still scrambling to get last-minute gifts for some of those

special some ones on your list. If you’re really like me you want something on a budget and that comes from the heart not from the mall. I got something easy and won’t break your bank. One project is for the females in your life, the other is for the bearded males in your life. Don’t think you can hack these projects? Don’t fret you got this, I have made sure that any one can handle these easy instructions and these ingredients. The first recipe makes a lot so you will have quite a few to give out. The second recipe is so yummy I want to steal it from my boyfriend and use it on my hair.

So first what you need. I made two stops for everything I needed. Fist stop Walmart, second stop Hobby Lobby. I tried to get everything I needed at Walmart and everything I couldn’t find I got at Hobby Lobby. It all depends on what you are willing to spend and the look you are going for. Hobby Lobby has really pretty bottles and the essential oils. Walmart has the epsom salt and mini mason jars at really great prices. I grabbed what I needed from both stores and hurried home to make the gifts.

EASY BATH SALTS

What you need:

1: 2 lbs Epsom Salt (8 lb bag available at walmart)

2: 2 Oz Lavender Essential Oil

3: 2 Oz Rosemary Essential Oil

4: 3 OZ Lavender Buds

5: Glass Bottles

Directions:

1: Add salt in large bowl.

2: Add essential oils and lavender buds and mix together.

3: Once mixed together bottle into glass bottles or 4 oz mini mason jars.

EASY BEARD OIL

What you need:

1: 6 Oz Sweet Almond Oil

2: 2 Oz Jojoba Oil

3: 2 Ml Buckthorn Extract

4: 0.5 Ml Essential Oil

(you can use lavender or cedar wood or a combo of both!)

5: Glass Bottles

Directions:

1: In a container combine oils (almond and jojoba)

2: Add extract and essential oil

3: Pour into glass bottles

Pretty Simple huh? I told you so! These are some easy DIY ideas to give as little presents to your loved ones. . You can always tweak the recipes and make them your own, or to use whatever you have in your home. I love making these as much as I love using them. I think gifts from the heart are more special than store-bought gifts but that’s just me!

Can’t, I Have to Charge My Crystals

 

 

woolf-moon-rune-stone-bath-bombs

Yesterday December 13, 2016 there was not only the most beautiful full moon out but it was also the last full moon for 2016. The moon affects us in a lot of ways. Not only the tides but us as people too. I was having the shittiest day in the longest time. I just keep reminding myself I’m only one panic attack away from the holidays being over. With the full moon out I knew there was only one fix for my winter blues. So with no hesitation I put my crystals to charge under the moonlight, and began to draw up a bath.

This was no ordinary bath, since this was the last full moon I decided to bring out some special bath bombs with crystals in them. The seasonal wolf moon bath bomb smells like apples and pine trees and contains a  crystal. The rune stone bath bomb smells earthy and contains a stone that has a rune on it. Between the moon and my bath i was determined to get myself out of this funk. I dropped in the bath bombs and the rooms instantly smelled like christmas and apples. I opened the window so I could look up at the moon. I started to meditate as I gazed up at the moon. I also used the hex breaker scrub and did an in shower meditation “As I wash off this scrub I was off all negative vibes, and all negativity projected onto me, from this moment on only good will come.” After feeling like a prune from soaking and starting at the moon I grabbed my new crystals excited to find out what the meant and exited the bath.

The rune stone I got means fertility. Not exactly what i was hoping for, last time I got joy. Witches use runes in their practice as a form of divination, and to for tell the future. The crystal in the wolf moon bath bomb is a citrine crystal. Thank you so much to Marlaena at Witch Baby Soap for the kind words and the information! These crystals are known for personal power, and drawing in positivity. I did and do feel a lot better after meditating under the moon, charging my crystals, and taking that bath.
