Happy Holidays at LUSH
Everybody panic! Christmas is looming and with the upcoming season of yule comes the holiday releases from all our fave brands! One brand that never disappoints is LUSH. A couple of months ago I was invited to a secret showcasing of their 2015 holiday offerings and was blown away by what seems to be LUSH’s most extensive holiday offering to date!
An item I will be picking up is the Magic Wand reusable Bubble bar I played with this on the night and the scent is super sweet and candy like, similar to snow fairy or godmother soap (may favourite) Its pink and sparkly and helps you to channel your inner fairy!
Other bath products that had me captivated were the Five Gold Rings bubble bars. Ive used two of the five rings and found they imparted a beautifully sweet vanilla scent to the skin while turning you into a sparkling gold disco ball (I’m saving a couple for my work christmas party!!) The Peeping Santa Bubble Bar was another bath product Ive used from the collection. Its so darned cute that it was hard to crumble up and use but when i did my bathroom was filled with a beautiful floral scent!
The most exciting element of this years offerings from LUSH are the huge array of new gift sets available this year. In addition to having a multitude of gifts at different price points a lot of them come in GORGEOUS reusable packaging such as tins, festive scarves and even a giant hat box filled with every piece of limited edition product.
A few holiday favourites are back including everyone’s favourite Snow Fairy shower gel, but this year she is joined by Fairy Dust which is a snow fairy scented dusting powder with a pink lustre that would look gorgeous on the skin for a night time event. Cult LUSH product; the lip scrubs have been given a christmas makeover with Santa’s Lips Scrub which is a bright red colour and cola scent/flavour (putting that one on my list)
The Celebrate Body Lotion is super rich and best used at night after a shower. I found this one a little heavy and oily for my skin if applied in the morning but awesome when rubbed into your dry bits (knees, elbows etc) before getting into bed to give you softer, more refreshed looking skin in the morning with the added benefit of smelling citrusy and sweet.
As usual all LUSH products are cruelty free and they are super proud of producing new technologies that have enabled them to produce more environmentally friendly, soluble and vegan glitters as well as degradable exfoliants.
The Christmas Limited Edition collection is available online and in store now and until sold out.
