LUSH Haul + Review


I make a trip to lush typically once a month to stock up on bath bombs, purchase a few favorites, and grab some samples. I love trying out their latest products because they are always changing things up and I often find new favorites. 

After loving each product I purchased I thought I would share my thoughts, feelings, opinions, etc...



DreamWash is one of those products I have been interested in purchasing for a while but never really had a use for it. I just didn't understand the difference between a shower smoothie vs a shower gel and I couldnt justify making a purchase. After months of smelling this product and loving it but putting it back on the shelf I finally bought it! 

The Aloe Vera is what got me this time around. With summer finally here and me spending more time out in the sunshine my skin needs that extra TLC. 

This super soft shower smoothie is loaded with rad ingredients. In addition to Aloe Vera, its got Lavender, Tea Tree, Calamine, Chamomile, and my personal favorite...Rose! 

As you can imagine it smells like heaven. Its also super smooth and literally feels like you are putting chocolate mouse all over your skin. 

Thus far I am loving it! A little tip if you purchase this beauty. Let it sit on your body for a few minutes after you lather yourself up. I treat it like a body treatment. Your skin feels so much better and you really get all the benefits if you give it a little extra time to work its magic. 


Ok...I know I get a little over zealous when it comes to Lush in general and I OFTEN deem ALL of their products as my favorites. But...this one is definitely a favorite! Best face exfoliant I have honestly ever used. And can we take a second to acknowledge the bad ass name for this one. It does not get cooler than Smugglers Soul. 

I love a lot of their face scrubs but this one is top notch for me. I love that the scrub itself is super fine. It feels more like sand then chunky pieces of almonds (no offense Lush). 

Sandalwood, Argan Oil, and Shea Butter make for such a simple delicious smell. I love it!

Doing some research online I also discovered that they have this baby in a moisturizer as well as a shampoo! Check it out > Moisturizer & Shampoo Bar 


Lush is great about samples, if you want to try something ask! With my purchase of DreamWash I passed on a shower gel this round. So instead I asked for a sample of Outback Mate

This one smells super yummy with Lemongrass, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus. Its minty and beachy making you feel happy and clean! 


I go above and beyond to make my Self Love Sunday bath nights magical. As far as candles, music, herbs, intentions, and energy go - its the bath bombs that really make it what it is. 

Bath bombs are really where my Lush addiction started. I have tried them all! Heres what I bought for the month of July! 


TWILIGHT - This one is a staple. A very favorite that holds a special place in my heart. It swirls around your bath turning the water into a pink, purple, and blue night sky with little bits of sparkle. It smells of Lavender and Tonka (which I have recently learned is that secret ingredient I am obsessed with). 

This super gentle slow release bath bomb smells totally magical. Its got a warmth to it that makes you feel totally loved by the universe itself. The Lavender relaxes you, the Tonka is incredibly intriguing, and its got a hint of Ylang Ylang for a little bit of sexy. 


HONEY BEE - This one is one of my grounding bath bombs. In addition to the obvious honey smell its super earthy! I like to mix herbs with this one for a little extra Gaia Goddess in my life. 

Orange, Honey, Tofee, Bergamot and Moroccan Rhassoul Mud is what makes this extra special. Its also got a hint of Aloe Vera so expect some silky soft skin! 


YOGA BOMB - We started off on the wrong foot but now im obsessed. The Yoga Bomb is a super grounding and uplifting bath bomb. Your bath looks like a sunset and smells like a field of oranges and incense. 

I am glad I gave it a second chance after our first encounter because bath night with this one is a groovy journey you dont want to miss out on!


SEX BOMB - This is one of their most popular bath bombs and for good reason. In my book this is the ultimate Self Love bath bomb. Definitely a favorite and definitely one I purchase every time I go. 

This is a sexy bath bomb with all the aphrodisiacs loaded into it! Jasmine, Clary Sage, and Ylang Ylang. You feel relaxed and loved while your senses dance around making a very romantic bath night. 

I also love this one for that special time of the month. Clary Sage is the key to shitty periods! 

And thats my latest purchase! Until next time my sweets...

Much love,

15 REALLY Random Facts About Me


1. My real name is Emily, but I have decided to go by Magnolia Rose on the internet because I can and I like it. I plan on legally changing my middle name to Magnolia Rose.

2. Ive collected birthday, anniversary, thank you (etc) cards ever since I was little. I feel ridiculously guilty throwing away something that someone took the time to pick out and write something in. I have a box in my basement filled with them and some of them still have money in them. 

3. As sassy as I can be I am super highly sensitive. 

4.  I used to be a huge Eminem fan! I still am at heart but my music tastes have changed. I have the majority of his songs completely memorized and I can name virtually every song of his if I hear the first few beats. 

5.  I get really claustrophobic if my feet aren't free. Socks, tight shoes, and blankets over my feet drive me nuts! 

6.  When I was younger I had a really strange taste in food. I ate cereal with water rather than milk. I loved butter and would eat it by itself. After finishing a sucker I would peel off the paper and eat the stick. 

7. I love tattoos and am currently planning a full sleeve. 

8. When I find a new song I like I play it on repeat all the time until I am sick of it. 

9. I used to have an eye twitch when I was younger. I danced at the time and used it to my advantage to "flirt" with the judges. It really worked for me in my competition days. 

10. I am a huge daydreamer and I spend a great deal of my time in my own head. Sometimes I will completely zone out without meaning to. As odd as it sounds it feels like I leave reality for a second. Sometimes it scares the shit out of me. 

11. I had a variety of nicknames when I was younger. A few are cricket, emp, bee, and emery. 

12. When going to the bathroom I nicely fold my toilet paper rather than crinkling it.  

13. I have never used LOL because I feel like it's misleading. I instead opt for haha! Or ha! I feel like laughing out loud at everything makes the times I do actually laugh out loud less exciting.  

14. I have the worst handwriting unless I am writing with a thick marker and I don't have lines that I have to fit it in. 

15.  When I was in elementary school I pierced second holes in both my ears by myself. When I was in middle school I pierced my nose by myself. Both situations using only sewing needles and earrings. 


Yep! I think it's safe to say I am an odd one! 

Much love!
