lush christmas








I went in to my local Lush store this morning to have a sniff at their new Christmas collection and was totally blown away. I felt like a kid in a candy shop, which is quite a fitting description since the theme for this years collection, bursting with crazy new inventions and unusual twists on some of their existing products, is Billy Bonkers (nice play on words!)

I was glad to see that old favourites like Snow Fairy and the Cinders bath bomb are sticking around for another festive period, and really liked that my favourite bubble bar had been given a makeover and transformed into a pink swirly mountain. There are of course, lots of new products - some of which will blow your mind!

My favourite new product is the gigantic Golden Wonder ballistic that mysteriously rattles when you shake it. The Lush assistant who was guiding me around the Christmas range was just as excited about this product as me and put the bath bomb into a jug of water to show me what was so special about it. The moment it hit the water there was a massive eruption gold fizz, infused with lots of little golden stars (which the very clever people at Lush have made dissolvable to save you having to clean up!) and a gorgeous fresh smell. You NEED to see this in person to see how amazing it is. I wish I taken some photos of it now, but I was far too mesmerized to take my eyes off the lovely golden fizz!

Even though I have a little Lush package on the way I couldn't help but buy something. I settled on an adorable Melting Snowman bath melt which has a lovely marzipan scent, almost like a toned down Snowcake soap. Being a massive fan of Snow Fairy, I couldn't resist picking up the Snow Fairy Lip Tint either. It has a subtle pink tint and, of course, the signature Snow Fairy scent. Yum!

Have you tried any of the Lush Christmas collection yet? What do you think of all the new products?

  4. I thought those pictures would indulge my Lush obsession and maybe I could avoid it this Christmas and save myself a fortune. Then I read about the Golden Wonder thing. Now the urge is worse than ever! It sounds amaaaazing!

  17. I LOVE snow fairy, bought my yearly bottle the other day, and all of the staff got incredibly overexcited about my buying it (!?) and there was about 8 of them in there, WHOAAAWWWSER, I swear their full-on-ness gets heavier and heavier every time I'm in there!

    I NEED a golden wonder but I haven't seen one yet? I haven't used a bath bomb or bubble bar for so so long due to eczema, I used to have boxes and drawers full of the stuff :( xx
