Christmas LUSH Haul & Gifts

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are all still enjoying the excuse to eat loads of food! I apologise for my lack of posts over the festive period, I was working every single day except Christmas Day itself so I literally had no time at all to post.

It seems that everyone found out about my love for LUSH this Christmas because I received 5 bath ballistics on Christmas day. I then went and bought 4 other bits from LUSH in their half price sale yesterday, oops, but I thought I would share them all with you because they are some of my favourite ever bath and shower products.

1. The Christmas Penguin
Santa kindly left this adorable bubble bar in my stocking for Christmas. The smell of this one is not very sweet but more sophisticated I find, and perfect for an evening bath. I believe that two of the main ingredients are orange and lemon, which explains the citrus tinge to the product. I think I love this one so much because it is a penguin...and they're my favourite animals because they are so adorable. LUSH suggest to only use half of the bubble bar and agitate the bath to create more bubbles, so I will definitely be trying this out.



2.  Avobath
This is one of the more basic Bath Ballistics that LUSH do, with a lemongrass and avocado scent. Its such a refreshing scent, probably not to everyone's taste but I think its perfect for a morning bath or an early evening bath to give you that little pick me up. They say that the Avobath is good for thirsty skin, however since I have not tried it yet I can't tell you whether that is true. Although it looks fairly boring I reckon it'll be one of the ones that will do wonders for my skin.



3. Luxury Lush Pud
I have seen so many people talk about this Bath Ballistic on Youtube, it seems to be one of the more popular Christmas products. This one is meant to turn your bath a wonderful purple/pink colour which is rather exciting! It used to turn baths brown but I believe they reviewed the product and changed it so it was more appealing. With some of the ingredients being lavender oil, ylang ylang and tonka, the smell is really relaxing.



4. Dragons Egg
One of my all time favourites from the regular lush Bath Ballistic collection! This bath bomb is full of surprises, changing your bath to every colour under the sun, and leaving it at a final colour of gold. One of the main ingredients is Lemon Oil, so again the smell is fairly fruity. Boring on the outside but rather intriguing. Don't judge a book by its cover!



5. Father Christmas
Unfortunately I was dying to use this one on Christmas Day so I don't have a decent picture of it. The detailing was so fantastic with the Santa face on the front. Now when I first looked at this I wondered why it was so expensive for what it was, but when I popped it in the bath I soon realised. It turned my bath bright green! It was so crazy. The main ingredients in terms of the scent are mandarin oil and orange flower, which makes this a very feminine smelling bath ballistic. 



6. Candy Mountain
My favourite Bubble Bar. Vanilla, sweet, sugary goodness. It just reminds me of rainbows and unicorns and all things dreamy. I literally want to use this every single day it smells divine! It creates so many bubbles and turns your bath a pretty pink. I'm not actually too sure if this is a Christmas special because when I went in it was in their 50% off sale - I'm hoping its not a Limited Edition because I didn't stock up!


7. Santa's Lip Scrub
Now I know a lot of people have negative opinions on the LUSH lip scrubs, saying that they are very overpriced for what they do, which is true, they are fairly expensive, but I got this one half price. It smells of Cola, although the smell is not to strong. I did want to buy the Popcorn one which is very popular, but it wasn't reduced and this was only £2.75. I am yet to try it but when I do, I will tell you if it is better than old fashioned Lemon, Olive Oil and Sugar.




8. Snow Fairy Shower Gel
Need I say anymore? An incredibly popular item amongst beauty bloggers and I am not at all surprised. This was in the 50% off sale, so this 250g bottle cost me £3.43 which is amazing. I was hoping to get the larger bottle but it was completely sold out but the time I got there. This smells of candyfloss and pear AND ITS GLITTERY! Perfection in a bottle.



9. Snow Fairy Massage Bar
Now, I didn't actually pay for this one, the lovely lady at the LUSH store was talking to me and turns out I served her at my work earlier that week and she remembered me. She asked me if I liked Glitter, obviously I said yes, and then she gave me this for free! I was super happy because I was actually going to buy one but it was one of those things I was unsure as to whether I would use it or not. But I definitely will now that she has explained to me how it works and how much it moisturizes your skin! It smells exactly like the shower gel too which is just yummy!



Unfortunately, since a couple of these products were Christmas Limited Edition ones, they may not still be available in your local LUSH store. 

Did any of you receive any LUSH things for Christmas?
