Christmas decorations are popping up everywhere, Starbucks Red Cups have arrived and Lush have some incredible treats in store for their Christmas collection this year. I headed along to my local store to see what’s on offer this festive season and there’s some lovely new surprises as well as some old favourites!
The Christmas Eve bubble bar is a product I’ve never tried before, but I’m assured it’s very popular. It easily breaks in half to give you two relaxing baths. Whether you want to save it for Christmas Eve is up to you, but this ylang ylang and jasmine scented treat will de-stress you from the hustle and bustle of the festive season.
Holly Golightly is new to the Lush Christmas range this year and it’s a zesty, glittery affair with lime oil and patchouli. Beneath the silver glitter exterior, Holly Golightly is bright green bubble bar- a similar shade to green fun.
The Christmas Penguin has returned again this year and is still so cute (although there is another that’s taken the top spot for ‘cutest Lush Christmas product’ which I’ll tell you about very soon) This little guy is a bubble bar with an uplifting mix of Bergamot oil, orange flower absolute and Sicilian lemon oil.
Snow Angel is a comforting bath melt sharing the familiar warm scent of Snowcake soap. This leaves a lovely shimmer behind, without being too glittery – if Holly Golightly looks a bit too glitterball-esque for you, give Snow Angel a go.
Say hello to The Christmas Hedgehog! Bonus points if you guessed this was the cutest Lush Christmas product! This little guy is part bath melt, part bubble bar and smells amazing. A mix of rose absolute, ylang ylang and lots of shea butter to really soften your skin as you relax.
Of course I’d have to give a quick mention to the soap selection this year. There’s a few new arrivals like Baked Alaska above which smells really fresh and energising, Fairy Ring, Yog Nog (which smells so good, like a really comforting Christmas scent) Reindeer Rock (lingonberry goodness) and of course, Snowcake which you’re no doubt already familiar with.
My beloved Rose Jam has returned and I’ll definitely be stocking up. Snow Fairy has also returned, I think there’d be chaos if it didn’t! The Snow Fairy scent can also be found in Father Christmas bath bomb and Candy Mountain bubble bar.
New shower gels this year are Hot Toddy, a spicy mix of ginger, patchouli and cinnamon and So White which is a refreshing apple scent; along with a very cute snowman shower jelly which smells incredible and I can’t wait to use the one I picked up.
You can see the full Lush Christmas range on their website and in store now. What will you be picking up? Are there any products you’d recommend?
