Lush Christmas products are always in store for just a few months, so when they land I am keen to quickly try them out and stock up on those that I love.
This year Lush have extended their Christmas range so much that sharing everything in a post is just not possible. So in this post you will find a selection of my favourites so far.
Last year there were a few items that I loved and some of these have made their way back (Golden Wonder, Butter Bear, Lord of Misrule). Sadly they didn't bring back Northern Lights which for me was a highlight, but this probably had to do with transportation problems as they were forever breaking.
Golden Wonder (£3.95), makes the perfect gift, lets just marvel at how pretty it looks and if you shake it you'll hear the hidden contents jingle inside.
I love bath bombs that are beautiful in colour and last a while. This bath bomb whizzes for ages releasing a wonderful blue hue and best of all it smells wonderful with my favourite scents of sweet orange and lime; delicious!
Everyone needs a couple of wise men in their life and with the Star Dust bath bomb (£3.95), if you follow its trail you might just find one. It might seem like a dull Bath bomb to start with because unlike many Lush bath bombs it stays white but inside is a little treasure trove of brightly coloured stars and the wonderful smell of vanilla and rosewood.
No Christmas would be complete without Santa Claus and remember that leading up to the special day he is always watching. Peeping Santa (£3.95), is always on the look out to see who has been naughty or nice.
Now it's probably the foodie in me but the Peeping Santa reminds me of a macaroon with cream. When crumbled under warm water the bubble bar makes a beautiful red bath, giving off wonderful scents of shea butter, chocolate sweet smelling Bergamot and geranium.
Lord of Misrule: The outside colour of this bath bomb is very deceiving; this little beauty becomes a wonderful claret colour as it whizzes and spins, leaving a lovely peppery and vanilla scent.
Whilst it turns your bath into a kaleidoscope of colours it also has popping candy to liven up any bath. If you like the smell, Lush have also released it in a shower cream.
Yog Nog (£3.95); yes this is reminiscent of the Christmas drink; it gives off a creamy foam and the bath bomb has a yellow shea butter jelly, that is left to moisturise your skin.
Cinders bath bomb (£2.95), is a favourite every year; I just wish that Lush would make it a permanent fixture and increase it in size.
The Magic of Christmas is a new reusable bubble bar (£5.95); the only way to describe it is Christmas in a bath, with warming cinnamon and clove it creates a spicy festive bath.When it reaches the end you can also stick the cinnamon stick in the bath.
If baths are not your thing, Lush also have some wonderful Christmas shower products.
Santa's Belly shower jelly (£3.95); with a wonderful smell just like mulled wine, it has scents of apple and Star Anise; what a little Christmas treat!
Lord of Misrule shower scream (£4.95); if your not keen on Snow Fairy because it is too sweet then this could be for you. This shower cream is far more masculine in smell with patchouli, peppercorn and black pepper. It also has the added benefit of vitamin E to make your skin Christmas ready.
Snowman shower jelly (£3.95); this little blighter is a slippery customer. If you can keep hold of him you are guaranteed a lovely shower of uplifting lemon.
