Lush Inhale Exhale

Lush invited bloggers to go in for mini pampering sessions, so I took a friend because my mum is a weirdo and doesn't like beauty treatments (her exact words in her email reply were "No, not really like to do that, just give me a kiss"). I ended up getting a mini facial, and left with some generous samples.

What really drew my eye, though, were the limited edition Mother's Day products. So much for reigning in my spending -- I went away with Inhale Exhale ($6.90).

That Kester Black Peony polish has hung around for a week and has only just started to chip. I'm impressed!

I'm a fairly recent convert to Lush; prior to my Christmas bath bomb blowout I'd only really tried out a couple of their soaps. The Inhale Exhale bath ballistic is based on their esteemed Breath of God -- seriously, Perfumes A-Z rate it as a 5-star fragrance. Inhale Exhale comes across as more accessible to me, with an emphasis on the floral components as opposed to the more heady, incense-y original. The bath ballistic component lasts for a good four to five minutes, with the Inhale half fizzing up first; the Exhale follows languidly, like a yogi practising 1:2 breathing.

I suspect I'll be repurchasing this before long, and probably the Breath of God solid perfume to boot. This is a Mother's Day-only release, so won't be around for much longer.
