BATH & UNWIND

It don’t matter if it’s 10 or 40 degrees outside, I enjoy a good bath all year-round. And if you’re like me and fancy yourself a bit of a bath connoisseur, you’d always be looking for the next best product that will take your experience to the next level, whether it’d be upping the fun factor or slowing it down for some blissful relaxation. As part of my quest to find the best bath products, I’m sharing some of my latest obsessions in this post covering bubble bath, bath salts and bath milks.

A real-life Dad reviews the LUSH Father’s Day range

It’s time for another LUSH Cosmetics limited edition range, and this time we welcome the LUSH Father’s Day collection. I thought it would be insightful to get a realistic view and opinion of the range so that if you’re thinking of purchasing something for your father you can be more confident in your choices (and so you can stop asking your Mum for gift inspiration). I enjoy bringing my family into the mix here on The Beauty & the Geek. My partner Sam has been a guest reviewer on my blog before (read his ideas on the men’s Bellobox here), but it’s time for me to introduce my Dad to the blogosphere.

Oh Deer Sugar haul!

If you’re any sort of LUSH fan, you’re going to want to read this.

Introducing Oh Deer Sugar, a non-edible bakery that specialises in handcrafting completely vegan bath and body goods that look and smell like your favourite foods. They are an incredibly ethically minded store that sources high quality ingredients without hurting the environment, and NONE of their ingredients are tested on animals. It’s a relatively small company run by two (quite impressive) women who hand-make these goodies right here in Adelaide! They run both a physical store in the City, and an online store which you can find here.
