If you like LUSH then you you will know they are famous for their gorgeous bath ‘ballistics’ – stunning bath bombs that fizz and sparkle. Their latest is something that smells good and does good! The Mermaid Bath Ballistic is limited edition and was launched this week to coincide with the release of The Mermaid Song – part of The Coldwater Project by musician and composer Ysanne. All proceeds donated to Sea Shepherd the global non profit conservation charity.
I’m a big fan of bath bombs and ballistics. They transform your tub into something special and this one is gorgeous. Made with lavender, lemon, seaweed and sea salt to soften your skin and clear your mind – you really do feel renewed.
Ysanne is an amazing violinist who is best known for her work with The Smashing Pumpkins and Michael Stipe. When you buy the bath ballistic, you can download the Mermaid Song for free!

I’m walking on air! I’ve just been to The Chelsea Day Spa and feel amazing!
A treatment here is a full on experience that revitalises you – mind, body and soul – and makes you feel ready for anything.
I went to the The Chelsea Day Spa Boutique on Hollywood Road in Chelsea, just off Fulham Road. Spring is the perfect time for a good facial and they have an extensive menu.
It’s a really gorgeous and serene place. With elegant neutral paint on the walls, the scent of aromatic oils in the air, lime or orange water on offer and chilled piano music playing – this oasis of calm was already relaxing me.
As I lay down on a heated raised bed, Sugar my therapist placed a satin blanket over me and analysed my skin. With so many wonderful treatments on offer, I was keen to try the facial that I had been hearing so much about. HydroPeptide Infusion Facial is a major new innovation in anti aging skincare and was perfect for me.
It’s Hollywood in an hour – and more. Peptides are BIG news in the beauty world because they get serious results. They help skin look younger and work better. Peptides are the building blocks of collagen and your skin. They actually strengthen and help your skin restore itself!
The treatment combines a very deep cleanse – a fresh zesty gel, followed by the Anti Wrinkle Exfoliating Cleanser and Brightening Toner, Polishing Crystals – almost better than microdermabrasion but more gentle – with the Plumping Activator applied on top. More Brightening Toner, the Anti Wrinkle Stem Cell Regenerating Serum and then the Ultra Rich Concentrate and Skin Firming Hydrator was massaged in firm stokes, it felt fantastic.
My pressure points were then massaged – temples, ears, in between my eyes, nose, cheekbones before warm flannels placed over my eyes. The Instant Peptide Miracle Mask was applied. It all felt amazing and was followed up with the incredible Anti Wrinkle Repair and Prevent Treatment and Skin Brightening Concentrate
The whole range smells great – fresh lime and coconut. It suits every skin type and is the the ideal treatment before a Wedding or party as you literally look wonderful straight after. I’m going to book another before my best friends wedding in September.
The benefits last and the products keep working on your skin for a few days after. It’s the perfect pick me up for tired skin and a course of treatments would see you having Supermodel skin pronto. You can also continue the good work at home with products from the range to take home.
HydroPeptide has won numerous awards and gets our vote!
HydroPeptide Infusion Facial – £95
For a course of 5 – £380 – buy 4 and get one free

I have long been a fan of the gorgeous LUSH. Looking for amazing handmade products that are good for you and smell incredible? So fresh you can FEEL it? Lush has it all. Made with little or no preservative or packaging, using only vegetarian ingredients and they tell you when they were made! I love the fact my new body lotion was made by Ben – this month! Being a big fan I tested out some must have favourites along with some new additions that are just brilliant….
Dream Cream (£10.95) ‘Our Number One Product’ says Lush. We say – SPOT ON! This gorgeous velvety body cream smooths on beautifully, feels instantly nourishing and comforting – and it absorbs quickly. Its the oat milk in this cream that is heaven sent. Also made with rose water, rose absolute, cocoa butter , chamomile blue , tea tree and olive oil, its been known to cure a whole host of skin problems like eczema, as well as being the go-to cream for daily beautifying. The scent isn’t over powering so it won’t interfere with your perfume. Its Lush’s serious best seller and we know why. Serious smoother soother – essential!
Buffy Body Butter (£5.95) It’s a full on skin softening experience. The bar is just the right size for holding in your palm as you rub it over wet skin in circular motions. The exfoliating beads work straight away – and the incredible scent of lemon and cocoa butter is released- getting you in the holiday mood. As soon as I washed off, my skin felt like silk – and shimmered! Perfect to buff your bod before your holiday or for a regular treat. Gorgeous.
Stepping Stone Foot-Scrub (£2.95) Smells great! This adorable foot shaped scrub and soak in one, made my bathroom lemon scented for days. Rub over tired tootsies in a hot bath. The pumice and jojoba oil polished my feet while dissolving into a pool of aqua cool all around me – beautiful.
Emotional Brilliance This is a genius idea – choose your make up – depending on your MOOD…..
Spin the Emotional Brilliance Colour Wheel – in store or online – to get your personalised colour reading. Select 3 colours that ‘feel right’ and this will reveal more about your state of mind. Like tarot cards for your cosmetics, choose your mood – and get gorgeous….
Bubbly (Pink) & Vibrance (Orange) Liquid Lipsticks (£14.50) These were brilliant! Stained like a lip tint. Shined like a gloss. Great texture. Perfect for slicking on for lasting colour without lipsticks usual fade out issues. The patent contains an incredible skin softening formula that improves the condition of your lips. Made with jojoba and rose. Line your lips with the tip of the sponge and fill in – and for subtle look – blot.
Bubbly was my favourite – a gorgeous rose pink really brought out my green eyes while orange Vibrance was lovely – a shimmer shot of sunshine for the lips. Ideal size too for popping in your handbag and glossing on the go. They also double up as a cream blush.
Eyes Bright Mascara (£12)This was a very impressive product, small but really packs a powerful punch. I had strong dramatic lashes within moments, the colour was intense too. Wheatgrass is the magic ingredient which promises irritation free flutters. The gentle formula contains only 1 preservative rather than the usual 4-6 in most others mascaras which makes it pretty special. Plus it contains vitamins that actually condition and nourish your lashes. – sold! It was the perfect size to slip into a small handbag for an evening out.
Healthy – Green liquid liner (£14.50) I usually go for coloured liners that shimmer and only use liquid when I’m creating cat eyes and wanting a smoky intense look at night. I had never really thought about using a more matte green but this fresh grass coloured liquid liner took me by surprise – I tried it and found it really lovely, versatile and wearable. I combined the liner with the rose pink Bubbly lips and had an instantly brighter look that took me from afternoon meeting to drinks with friends. The green actually matched my eyes and gave me subtle but enhanced look. It was the perfect fresh Spring feel. In the daylight it just looked pretty and as I wore it into the evening the colour blended and faded to a slinky green grey. Made with Damask Rose. A lovely consistency doesn’t set straight away so you can blend and perfect.
Lifted – Yellow Cream Eyeshadow (£14.50) This yellow eye brightener lifted my spirits on a less than bright Spring day. You can use alone, as a shadow, a highlighter or under another colour to really open up the eye. Made with amazing cupuaçu butter, almond and jojoba – its good for your skin too.
Go and spin that wheel! Great colours, so much variety and such a cool idea. I love the labels attached to the little bottles! They give the whole range a cute apothecary feel, which just adds to Lush’s authenticity. They make gorgeous products, naturally.
