The Sunday Post #7: Homemade LUSH Scented Moisturiser


If you've read my various LUSH posts you will probably know that my all time favourite products is their Happy Blooming Bath Melt. It is amazing, I love it and I would smell it all day if I could but wished the scent would linger a little more on my skin and I have been longing for a moisturiser or lotion that shares it's scent for ages!

I don't really know why I hadn't thought of doing this before in all honesty but I thought I'd share my little homemade lotion with you!

I'm sure this would work for most of the bath melts LUSH offer so if you're not a fan of Happy Blooming you could try it with the others.

All I did was dig out a fragrance free moisturiser, I chose First Aid Beauty Body Moisturizer because it's my favourite and I had a little sample bottle left over from a GlossyBox which proved perfect for my little experiment. Because my sample bottle was empty I just decanted a small amount of my full sized bottle into it to make it about half full, mixed a tiny slice of Happy Blooming (probably about a centimetre cube) and melted in it a small amount of water (about a cap full) to make it into a paste. I then popped it into the bottle, mixed and voila! Happy Blooming cherry and passion fruit goodness!

I'm not sure of the shelf life of doing this so would advise doing small amounts at a time but this worked perfectly for me! I was a little worried about the pink tint but I'm pleased to say that with the amount I used I've had no problems with it at all.

I adore this little mind child and sit here typing with beautifully scented, amazingly moisturised skin! Yay!

  2. I love the idea of this. I recently purchased that bath melt and I love the smell! Think they're a bit more worthwhile than bath ballistics.

    Love your blog, please take a look at mine
