One of the first places I head to for a pay day splurge is most definitely the sweet, bubbly heaven that is Lush. I just cannot resist picking out some bath bombs and bubble bars to have stashed away for an exciting selection of bubbles, melts, colours, popping candy and more come bath time. Which turns out, actually comes around quite quickly for me as I love baths! I feel like now is the perfect time to indulge in plenty of long, hot baths when it is so dark and cold outside. Apparently Lush agrees because this time of year is when they really up their game and bring out their amazing limited addition Christmas range! I'm so excited to try some of the things I picked up from this range recently and I thought I would share them with you.
First of all, look how pretty! Magic Wand is a reusable bubble bar made with the same super sweet scent as the Snow Fairy Shower Gel which I also picked up (think candy floss and bubble gum). Simply hold this under running water or swish the wand round in your bath to create a pink bubbly bath with tiny silver sparkles. I tried this one last night and it is amazing. My bath smelt good enough to eat!
I was drawn to this one as I thought the different colours and sparkles made it look so funky! Big Bang claims to uplift and refresh as well as nourish and hydrate the skin which sounds like just what I need after a long day! This one is made with grapefruit oil, avocado butter and tangerine oil which gives it the uplifting feel and smells really zesty and awakening!
Lush describes Star Dust as "ideal for post-party recovery" and I definitely think this one smells much more soothing with a hint of fresh citrus. Star Dust is made with vanilla absolute, rosewood oil and bergamot oil and I can only imagine how magical this sparkly white star is going to look in the tub!
I have heard so many people talk about Butterbear that I thought it was about time I went and tried him for myself. I kind of don't want to use him though because he is just too cute! Butterbear is made with cocoa butter, ylang ylang oil and cocoa powder and is supposed to be creamy, comforting and softening. Mmmm.
Finally, it wouldn't be a Christmas Lush haul without picking up the classic and scrumptious Snow Fairy Shower Gel. I absolutely love this stuff and get so excited when it comes out again at this time of year! If you have ever tried the Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub (do try it, it works wonders and smells delicious!) this has a very similar scent. Snow Fairy makes my skin smell like sweet Candy floss and leaves me wondering if I should stock up before it gets discontinued until next year... hmmm what do you think?
Let me know if you have tried any of these and which one is your favourite! If you need me, I'll be in the bath!
Have you tried any of the Lush Christmas range yet?
