Yes, kids, Christmas at Lush is finally over… With their traditional half-price sale on at Boxing Day, the last few Christmas products have been swept from the shelves, and we’re all left either revelling in our Christmas arrivals or lamenting products never to be seen again.
My stash of Lush products has been seriously augmented in the last week or so, both by Christmas present from lovely people, and by a bit of sneaky ordering of my own…
I don’t normally do review of individual bath bombs, but I was so very impressed by Secret Santa that I just had to show you how magical it is! Continue reading
Christmas has begun! I met up with a lovely friend this weekend, and we swapped presents – imagine how excited I was to see her pull out this big glittery box… This is the Fab Christmas box from Lush, which has 12 girly products from the Christmas and regular Lush lines. This box is unashamedly princessy! Want to take a look at what’s inside?
In the spirit of Christmas, I think it might be time for another lust list! And of course, what better theme for someone like me than the Lush products I’m currently dying to own..? Not all of these are new, and not all of them are from the Christmas range – several of them I’ve tried before and are definite favourites. My one stipulation for this list was that they were all currently in shops (i.e. not discontinued, or Retro), otherwise it might go on forever! Here’s my current list, in reverse order…
5. Santa’s lip scrub.
I’ll be totally honest with you, I feel like the Lush lip scrubs are a bit of a waste of money. They are literally just sugar, colour and flavouring, and I’ve so far refused to get on board with them. But then, I tried this out in the shop, and oh, my… It tastes like cola bottles, and leaves a teeny tiny bit of colour on your lips, and is basically really lovely. Overpriced? At £5.50 for a tiny pot of sugar, definitely yes. But that doesn’t seem to stop me lusting after it…
Read on for the rest of the countdown! Continue reading
It’s the last week of term here in Oxford, and that means plenty of stress for me! It’s the week of the pantomime – this term I’m musical director and also playing the Doctor’s companion (not to mention also playing a ninja fairy and the front of the pantomime dragon tomorrow night because one of the cast can’t make it). It’s also the week of termly reports, meetings with the college Principal, catching up one last time with friends, cramming in the last few library hours, and finally packing.
So, on Saturday night, my first night at home, I’m expecting to be pretty tired. I popped into Lush for a bit of bath planning, and came away with some awesome bits to make a relaxing Christmas bath to kick off my holiday. Continue reading
Remember my love for St Ives Apricot Scrub, and how no scrub could ever top that for me?
Well, hold on there just a minute.
I might have fallen in love with Let the Good Times Roll cleanser from Lush. Continue reading
I’m back in Oxford! I arrived back yesterday, unpacked, had tea with Boyfriend, and then was physically dragged into Lush by my friend, who wanted to show me all the Christmas things and had made me promise to avoid spoilers until she could show me! So yesterday afternoon was a bit of a crazy wintery wonderland, and, well, just look at the size of that bag! (I included my iPhone 4 for reference – it’s flipping huge!) Continue reading
Yay for Christmas!
Lush’s Christmas stock is here! I spent a lovely twenty minutes browsing all the new things with a very helpful (and very pretty!) assistant. I’d seen the Enchanter (the bath bomb on the left) reviewed on girlfridaysblog and decided I had to buy one, and was completely blown away by the gorgeous fragrance. It’s a citrussy woody sort of smell, really autumnal and exactly what I feel like after a long day at the moment.
Then I was tempted by the toffee-apple scented Fizzbanger (on the right), which apparently has popping candy inside it, so that should be fun! Did you know that there’s no apple essential oil, and they have to use other scents to reproduce an apple-y smell? I have to say, they did an incredible job, and I’ll be going back for a So White, which is also apple scented.
The soap in front is Mr Punch, one of the Christmas soaps.My piece isn’t as pretty as the big pieces i the shop, ’cause the assistant didn’t cut a slice with any colourful sections, so it’s just a really deep pink (with one grey section). It smells fruity and dark, and apparently is made with real gin! I might see if Boyfriend likes the smell and get him some… I had been planning on getting him a Midnight Massage bar, since the Each Peach is getting a little sickly (it smells like yellow Strepsils!), but it’s absolutely covered in glitter, and I don’t know if he’ll go for that!
Do you like the look of any of the Lush Christmas stuff? I know I’ll be going back pretty soon to grab some more – probably the pepperminty White North Pole, and the Snow Globe soap.
