Finally I can tell you all about the LUSH Christmas Collection! I attended the product launch event a few weeks ago now and it has been so hard keeping all these goodies a secret. There are some incredible brand new products, some returning favourites and also a sneaky boo from the Halloween collection.
As always this years Christmas collection is full of a huge range of products: bath bombs, bubble bars, soaps, shower gels, jellies and scrubs, body and skin things, bits for your lips and amazing gift packs.
The classic Dashing Santa and Father Christmas bath bombs are returning along with another very cute looking santa friend. Peeping Santa is a bubble bar with a fruity floral scent full of moisturising shea butter and cocoa butter. The best thing is that with these peeping santa’s being handmade they each have their own adorable personality and not one looks like another.
Candy floss is one of my favourite scents of all time and if you love sweetness and all things pink then get ready to dive into everything Snow Fairy. Snow Fairy shower gel is back along with it’s scent sharing friends the Magic Wand Bubble Bar, Candy Mountain Bath Bomb and the brand new Fairy Dust Dusting Powder to keep you fresh and sparkling. The Snow Fairy Castle Gift Set above is the perfect gift for people like me who love sweet scents.
The new Salt and Peppermint Bark really blew me away with just how pretty it is and how good it feels and smells. This body scrub was inspired by the american candy peppermint bark and is exfoliating as well as being moisturising with cocoa and capuacu butter. Out of the whole collection on the night, this is the product I chose to take him with me as I couldn’t bare to separate myself from the yummy peppermint scent.
Christmas isn’t really Christmas without that stunning red shade everywhere and my red Lush picks are the new Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly along with the Santa’s Lip Scrub and Santa Baby Lip Tint. Santa’s Belly is full of mini stars (amazing made with a type of seaweed!) paired with a crisp apple scent. The Santa Lip Scrub is a long time essential of mine, the cola scent/flavour is so yum and it keeps my lips super smooth. It’s the perfect thing to use before the Santa Baby lip tint which keeps my lips a bright shade of eye popping red throughout the whole day, even after eating, drinking and rubbing my lips together trillions of times.
And of course, before Christmas is Halloween! If pumpkins and sparkles are your thing then you will love the Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar which will leave you gleaming gold. The Night Wing Shower Jelly is a lime scented bat shaped twist on the original shower jelly. Or grab the super cute but scary Bat Heebie Jeebie gift set which includes the Night Wing Shower Jelly and the Lord of Misrule Shower Cream.
The Lush Christmas Collection is available in stores nationwide from the 8th of October and online from early October www.lush.co.nz
What will you be snapping up?! I’m going to be honest, it’s going to be hard to grab these goodies as Xmas presents and not keep them for myself!
