“I’m a sucker for anything which claims to bring back a bit of glow to the skin, so was drawn to the Active Gold Collagen shots for this reason, plus their promise to support joints and muscles.
"Once I got beyond the initial embarrassment of sounding like a prima donna whenever I mentioned sipping on my daily collagen drink, I really enjoyed the 30-day course.
"The contents of the small glass bottles are pleasant tasting, a bit like flat Lucozade, and I did feel that by the end of the month my make-up went on more easily and my skin looked a bit brighter.
"I wouldn’t be able to afford to do this every month, but for an occasional lift, I felt it was worth it.”
Mother’s Day is almost upon us so if you have yet to buy yours a gift, make a quick trip into Lush and check out their special gift collection.
Why not treat her to an indulgent Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb (€4.50)? Infused with Turkish rose oils, orange flower, and containing actual rose petals, it’s a decadent treat — but at a bargain price.
Or bring out her glamourous side with the Yummy Mummy Shower Gel (€5.95 for 100g) and Body Conditioner (€24.95 for 240g).
The shower gel is lilac-scented and leaves the skin shimmering with a subtle golden lustre while the cocoa butter-enriched conditioner smells sweetly of strawberries and is intensely moisturising.
And if you can’t possibly choose between all the delights, Lush have put together some personalised gift-sets to take the panic out of last-minute shopping.
The Love You Mum gift set (€18.75) with soothing hand cream and floral soap is designed for the sore hands of gardening mums while the Mum gift set (€38.50) is perfect for those in need of a day of pampering (cups of tea not included so you’ll have to make those yourself).
Lush Mother’s Day collection is available in stores now.
