The Lush Christmas range is one that always takes everyone by storm and even though I use Lush all year round, the Christmas range always has me amazed. During my very busy week/weekend (I apologise about the lack of Blogmas posts. I had a lot of alcohol filled christmas parties, shopping and family meet-ups to keep me busy so unfortunately Blogmas was but on the back burner. I’m back now.. I promise!) I managed to sneak 10 manic minutes into the Lush store at Meadowhall and after fighting my way through the people to get to the Christmas range, I filled as many bags as I could before being pushed back out again, but I managed to pick up some absolute beauties.. result!
The first product I picked up was the Butterbear bath bomb, which is just the cutest looking bath bomb ever. I was there with my friend Megan and she said she had tried this and it made her skin really silky soft and smooth, which meant this one was definitely coming home with me!
“Father Christmas collects softening Fair Trade cocoa butter in his sleigh for his gentle polar pal. Pop him into the water to infuse your bath with a warm and creamy vanilla scent and dreamy softness for sublime skin. This comforting bear is also filled with fragrant cocoa powder and calming ylang ylang to melt hearts young and old.” – Lush.
Now, it’s no surprise that Lush is everyone’s favourite place to buy bath bombs.. not only because they are amazing but also that they don’t test on animals which for us bloggers is just a win-win situation. Then add into the equation that Lush are using Fair Trade cocoa butter in this product, we are really onto a winner here. Products with Cocoa butter in are always a hit with me as it works wonders on my skin, so I’m really looking forward to using this one. Butterbear has a very subtle hint of vanilla and it’s not too over powering like some scents can be, which I liked about this product.
A pink, sparkly, magical wand that adds bubbles to your bath???? Oh my lord it’s a yes from me. Lush have done it again.. it’s not a want but a need, and I needed this as soon as I saw it.
“Wave a magic wand over bath time. Snow fairies of all ages will love swishing this candy sweet magic wand around the bath to turn the water pink and create clouds of candy floss bubbles. Save some for next time (and even the time after) by popping your reusable wand on the side to dry out. Don’t forget to make a wish!” – Lush.
This wand is a reusable bubble bar and the product is actually a really good size which gives me lots of hope that I’m going to get a fair few uses out of this product. The glitter on the top of the wand just fills me with excitement as one of the all time favourite bath bombs from lush is the Intergalactic, which is full of glitter and you come out of the bath feeling so magical and sparkly. Don’t be put off by this though, as once I’ve moisturised and got ready, there’s only a tiny shimmer of glitter you’ll be able to see – I personally love this but if for some reason it’s not your lifelong dream to become a magical unicorn.. I’d maybe stay clear of the glitter bath bombs!
What a surprise that I picked up yet another glittery product. Shock. As soon as I laid eyes on this one I just knew I needed it. Of course, snow angels are an absolute must at Christmas when it snows so I thought this would be the perfect festive bath melt!
“Dissolving into a flurry of snow, blanket your bath in white foam before revealing a shimmering golden glow. Rich in moisturising Fair Trade cocoa butter, with a delicate marzipan scent, and drifts of rose, benzoin and cassie absolute to treat skin to a softening, floral soak.” – Lush.
Well.. doesn’t that just sound divine. What really drew me towards this one was the multiple layers, that I absolutely just can not wait to try. This bath bomb has the most delightful smell and has honestly made my bathroom smell amazing. I’ve never tried a bath melt from Lush before, so I’m really intrigued to see what it’s all about.
These are just 3 of my favourites out of the many I bought, but you can see what other treats I picked up at the Lush store over on my Instagram!
