LUSH – You’re A Star

I could go on, but LUSH doesn’t like to brag about all their Hollywood friends.
You’re A Star contains: Dream Cream Body Lotion, Dreamtime Luxury Bathmelt, Aqua Mirabilis Body Butter, Ceridwen’s Cauldron Bath Melt, Therapy Massage bar, Skin Shangrila Moisturizer – trial size, Silky Underwear Dusting Powder, French Kiss Bubble Bar, Blackberry Bath Ballistic. RRP $119
Don’t worry, if the ‘you’re a star’ pack is a little out of your price range, LUSH has created many Mother’s Day packs for you to choose from, starting from as little as $14. Head to www.lushnz.com for more info https://www.lushnz.com/shop/product/category/path/1036_1037/mothers-day-gifts
