LUSH Christmas Haul

I know, it’s only the end of October but I couldn’t wait! It’s hard enough waiting for December to put up the Christmas tree!

My LUSH Online Christmas haul arrived ( I can’t go into a LUSH store I find the scent too overpowering) and I’ve been bathing every night to try the new limited edition collection, it is my favourite time of year to indulge in bath bombs, melts and bubble bars.  This year I got extras to give to those near and dear, they make great stocking fillers and Secret Santa gifts.

So here is my selection and impressions…

SANDY SANTA SCRUB BAR

This one is super nourishing and exfoliating at the same time, great to use in the bath for a quick scrub but careful not to leave it lying in water as it will dissolve!  With coconut oil, murumuru butter, organic shea butter, sugar, sand and brazilian orange oil.

FATHER CHRISTMAS BATH BALLISTIC

An uplifting and zesty bath bomb that turns water from bright red to vivid green.  With mandarin oil, bergamot oil and orange blossom absolute.

GOLDEN WONDER BATH BALLISTIC

Love this one!  Gold stars burst out and the water turns a vibrant blue. Sweet orange oil, cognac oil and lime oil a refreshing citrus bath.

SHOOT FOR THE STARS BATH BALLISTIC

A really pretty bath with brazilian orange oil, clarifying bergamot and honey.  Like a multi-coloured rainbow with a clean citrus and honey scent.

SECRET SANTA BATH BALLISTIC

Another favourite…sandalwood, zesty lime and floral oils smell divine! Turns bath a bright orange and there is a treat inside, so much fun.

THE CHRISTMAS PENGUIN BUBBLE BAR

A gorgeous citrus bubble bath with orange flower absolute and sicilian mandarin oil.

CANDY MOUNTAIN BUBBLE BAR

A super girly bubble bath with sugar sweet scent and fluffy, pearly white and pink bubbles.

SO WHITE BATH BALLISTIC

Not so exciting to look at but a gorgeous bath bomb that reminds me of the Twilight Bath Ballistic (one of my favourites). Turns bath a delicate pink. Apple inspired scent with neroli oil and rose absolute.

SNOWMAN BATH BALLISTIC

Luxurious and wonderful for dry skin. Vanilla and ylang ylang and cocoa butter chunks dissolve to moisturise your skin.

STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT BATH MELT

Cocoa & shea butter and virgin coconut oil with ginger. Crush this under running water and it melts leaving a silvery lustre on turquoise water. Gorgeous and warming bath experience!

CINDERS BATH BALLISTIC

This one is a bit of fun. Cinnamon leaf oil and sweet orange so super Christmassy. Popping candy emulates that comforting sound of a crackling open fire.

LUXURY LUSH PUD BATH BALLISTIC

Another favourite, the polka dots float to the surface making pastel islands in the water.  Has a rich lavender and ylang ylang scent that is so soothing.

MAGIC WAND

Brilliant! I thought this would fall apart but it doesn’t, it even restores its shape between each bath. It is a re-usable bubble bar for up to ten bubble baths.  Swish it around in the water for loads of bubbles.   Has a soft vanilla and candy scent and would be loved by little (and big) girls.

THE MELTING SNOWMAN BATH MELT

A warming Christmas melt that is super nourishing for the skin.  I’d love to use this on a cold winter night but failing that will use when it’s not so hot and in need of comfort. Cocoa butter, almond oil nourish, cinnamon leaf oil, clove leaf, lime oil and sweet orange oil.

BOMBARDINO BATH BALLISTIC

Yum!!!! Rich lemon cheesecake scent with Cocoa butter, sicilian lemon oil and vanilla absolute. What more could you want in a bath.  Next time I’m eating cheesecake while I soak in this one J

That may seem a lot of bath products but believe me I’ll get through them in no time and I could have bought double that amount if I didn’t rein myself in.

Go on! Treat yourself to the most luxurious and fun bath experience and stock up on Christmas gifts at the same time.
