Ho Ho Ho! It's the LUSH Christmas Range!



Can you believe it's December already? Christmas is nearly upon us, which means it's time to get your festive shopping done (although I usually don't start until the week of Christmas, because I'm the queen of disorganization). This year Lush released their Christmas range early, on October 5, so you may have already seen these goodies in-store. The collection will be available until December 24, so make sure you pop in to pick up your faves before it's too late! I was kindly sent a box of Lush Christmas products, let's take a look!




Candy Mountain Bubble Bar
This pretty pink and white swirly, sparkly delight combines the best in bathing elements; a sweet, delicious fragrance and lots of bubbles! If you're a fan of girly, pink water in your bubblebath, this fun, glistening triangular peak will be right up your alley. The vanilla scent is super-strong, and reminds me of cult favourite, Snow Fairy. This would be a great stocking stuffer if you had a daughter (although my son is partial to a Candy Mountain bubblebath, let's hope he doesn't mind me sharing that nugget of information!)



Buck's Fizz Body Conditioner (NEW!)
Lush is famous for inventing unique products, and their body conditioners certainly fit that bill! Like a hair conditioner, a body conditioner is designed to leave the skin soft, moisturised and nourished. I love the bright orange colour of Buck's Fizz (a new product!), and the concoction of scents such as fresh grapefruit, Brazillian orange and lime are zingy and delicious. These are scents that wake you up and make your soul sing, so this one's great for use in the morning. This one reminds me of Bubbly Shower Gel, which is one of my favourite Lush shower gels.



Sherbet Dip Bath Bomb (NEW!)
Lemon lovers will adore this citrus-scented yellow, fizzy wonder, which is a new product from Lush this Christmas! This will turn your bath water yellow and green and fill your bathroom with an uplifting, tangy fragrance. Containing grapefruit oil to energize a tired body (after Christmas shopping no doubt!) and Sicilian lemon oil to cleanse, this fizzer goes off. Eat some Wizz Fizz in the bath for the full Sherbet Dip experience!



Santa's Christmas Shower Cream (NEW!)
I much prefer Lush shower gels to their creams, I think it's just a textural thing, but having said that, Santa's Christmas is fun to use and smells like cola, which is great for someone like me who loves both Pepsi Max and Coke No Sugar! Santa's Christmas is a thick, dark pinkish-red cream that lathers nicely and is quite festive, in hue and aroma. As well as the cola smell, it also has a warm, spicy kick from the cinnamon infusion and black pepper oil. It also contains cocoa butter to make your skin soft and a coffee infusion for an energizing boost!




Butterbear Bath Bomb
This cute white polar bear is more subtle than most Lush bath bombs and perfect if you're after a relaxing soak. It's smaller too (and thus cheaper) so it's another great stocking stuffer for your nearest and dearest. Butterbear is dapper AF with his stylish scarf, and contains Fair Trade cocoa butter to soften the skin, along with calming ylang ylang and a warm and creamy vanilla scent that will be sure to elicit a festive smile, even from the Grinch.




Snow Fairy Body Conditioner
Snow Fairy lovers will definitely appreciate this baby pink-coloured body conditioner! This is honestly like being at a fun fair, as one whiff immediately conjures memories of fairy floss and fairground fun as a child! If you're not a fan of sweet scents, maybe give this one a miss, as the Snow Fairy family is notorious for its rich, sweet aroma. Prepare thyself for the plethora of delicious ingredients in this baby though: candy floss water, cherry infusion, mango butter, avocado butter, organic jojoba oil and cocoa butter. Bliss!




Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb
This one is too pretty to use, and I'm going to save it for closer to Christmas. With its bright pink base and colourful spots, it reportedly releases a rainbow of colours into the tub, turning your bathwater into a kaleidoscope of gorgeous hues (check out the Lush video of its release into the water here, so you know what I mean). With a sophisticated aroma of warm tonka absolute, calming lavender, uplifting ylang ylang oil and comforting benzoin resinoid (what, now?), this is one designed to rest your body and mind and lift your spirits, so you'll be ready for another day of Christmas shopping!




Santa Baby Lip Scrub
I love a good lip scrub, and Santa Baby hits the nail on the head. It's a bright, festive red colour, and has the familiar cola scent that belongs to the Lush Santa Baby family of products. I could honestly inhale this delicious fragrance all day... but onto other aspects of this lip product. This contains scrubby caster sugar to exfoliate dry skin and jojoba and extra virgin coconut oils to soften your lips and make them mistletoe-ready. Lime oil is in there along with black pepper oil to add spice and a little invigorating tingle!




The Magic Of Christmas Reusable Bubble Bar
Aah, these Lush bubble bar wands are so fun! The sparkly stars on a stick never fail to make me smile. I've loved using the pink Magic Wand one last year, so I can't wait to use The Magic Of Christmas. This orange sparkler with gold glitter combines some interesting fragrances, and is probably best used by the adults in the family, given the addition of punchy, spicy cinnamon leaf, Fair Trade organic clove to stimulate the skin and boost circulation and almond essential oil. This smells hot and spicy, so I think it will make an interesting bathing experience!




Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Tint
I was so excited to receive this, because Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub is my all-time favourite lip scrub from Lush, the scent is to die for! This still has that gorgeous familiar Sugar Plum Fairy scent, but it's quite subtle, so I'll instead address this as a lip tint. It applies as a super-pretty magenta coloured tint, that can be built up and has great lasting power. The formula is smooth and so pleasant; it feels really nice going on, and feels soft and moisturising on the lips. It contains Kalahari melon and organic jojoba oils to nourish and moisturise the lips, and has sweet wild orange oil to produce a delicious scent. I love this lip tint!


You can shop the LUSH Christmas range until December 24 in-store on online here.
