lush christmas sale








tin of pure imagination | gingerbread house tin | snow fairy gift
golden wonder bath bomb | candy mountain bubble bar

It's no secret that I love Lush, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that I took full advantage of their legendary Boxing Day sale. Or that I, ummm, managed to spend £70 on bath products. The sale was 50% off all Christmas products (and any other products made before October) so I suppose it is a bargain really - at least that's how I'm justifying it!

I managed to sleep in so didn't get to Lush until about 12pm (I'm usually queueing outside the shop waiting on it to open so that I can grab the best gift boxes!) and I was really annoyed with myself to find that they'd sold out of the best box sets and completely ran out of Snow Fairy. The little pink gift box was the last trace of Snow Fairy to be found. I still got hold of some good items though, the big tins were a bargain at £15 and the little gingerbread house - which doubles up as a piggy bank - was too cute not to buy at £7.50! I bought one last year too with a slightly different design so I'm building up a collection it seems! I also stocked up on my favourite limited edition product, the Golden Wonder bath bomb.

I already had a big pink hat box (pictured in the first photo) full of Lush supplies, but I'd like to think that the huge mountain of products I've bought in the Christmas sale will see me throughout the year. Although it is me we're talking about here...

Most of these products will be sold out soon, until next Christmas. They've been taken off the website but the shops might still have some stock. I was planning on reviewing them but I'm not sure if people would read it since you're not able to buy the products. What do you think?

Did you get gifted any Lush products for Christmas, or did you buy anything in the sale? And for anyone who missed out, I've heard that the Lush mail order phone line (01202 668 545) might have some stock leftover.

  3. Aww that's good that you got some snow fairy! If I could have one Christmas item it would definitely be snow fairy. :) x

  5. I don't know how you could possibly leave empty handed! You must have some amount of willpower :) x

  6. Aww no, that's a shame! I heard that the website was impossible to visit, so glad I dragged myself out of bed and went to the store because I was planning on sleeping a bit longer and ordering online! There's lots of stuff on ebay at the moment, and people offering things on the Lush FB page if you want some xx

  7. By accident? Haha! If you ration it, that tub might just last you the year... x

  8. The Lush sale is always my first priority on boxing day! I actually turned down triple time at work so that I could have the day off to visit the Lush sale! #sad x

  9. Oh no, that's awful! You'd think they would realise it would be busy and add some servers or something to let more people on. :( x

  10. There might be a few bits and pieces left! Lush is great, I've got quite a few reviews under the lush tag if you want to have a look before buying anything. :) x

  11. Their sales are always amazing! They used to offer a free gift box if you spent £20 on products on boxing day... I got there early and got a free £60 box once! Definitely check it out next year :) x

  12. Thank you! I think I got a lot for my money :) x

  14. Thank you! Lush sales are always great. I remember you could get ANY gift box free if you spent £20. I was always there first thing trying to grab the most expensive, haha! x

  15. Aww I think a lot of people missed out judging from the comments. :( x

  16. They never have sales throughout the year so I don't think a lot of people realised! If I was more organised I would have let everyone know! At least you got some stuff as Christmas presents though :) x

  17. Yeah I heard about the website being down. I'm glad I went instore now! Lush is such an easy thing to become addicted to isn't it? x

    ReplyDelete
  18. Really!? That's the one I wanted but they had sold out by noon. I'm jealous! x

    ReplyDelete
  19. Haha yes... In theory! Knowing me I'll be back in store by the end of January spending more money! ;) It is a bit odd that everything sold out despite everyone complaining that the site was down. All I can think of was that people were phoning the order line and that's how it sold out? x

  20. I wouldn't be able to cope without a local lush! The gingerbread house is lovely - don't use it all at once :) x

    ReplyDelete
  21. Brilliant! I'm going shopping tomorrow and I'm going to have to stay farrr away from any sales! What did he get you? x

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's why I always try get there first thing on boxing day morning! ;) x

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thank you! :) You should definitely go get some Lush products haha x

  26. Oh my goodness... I'm so jealous. That is a load of Lush products you have there! I can only come out of the store with a max of 3 products because they're all so pricey! Poor college student funds, you see :c I wasn't able to pick up any gift sets the day after christmas because everything was gone.

  31. Nope nope - the mail order line was shut for Christmas.. spooky eh! I think they were shut on Boxing Day too and when they reopened on the 27th they said they'd sold out too. It's a conspirancy! Haha xxx

  40. You bought so many lovely things - I know I would have spent about the same if I'd been near a store, pretty awesome you have enough (in theory!) to last the year now and your room will smell absolutely amazing in the meantime! I was pretty miffed about their website being down - they finally put it up again on the 27th and announced they'd sold out of everything which is pretty funny considering no-one could get onto it! Will definitely be trying to make it to a shop next year!xxx
