Lush Christmas 2013 - photo heavy!

Every year, there are two things that get me in the festive spirit immediately.  One is the Coca Cola "Holidays are coming" ad and the second is the arrival of Lush's Christmas products!  When I go into a Lush shop at this time of year and see the piles of colourful goodies, it makes me feel like all is well in the world.  I feel very comforted seeing the old favourites I've tried over the years and always love to see what's new.

There's a lot to show you, so prepare yourself for lots of photos!

One of my favourites is the Golden Wonder Bath Ballistic and I've gone through so many of these over the years!  The Secret Santa Bath Ballistic is new and might be the cutest thing I've ever seen!  It's a little grotto and when you plop it in the bath, a Santa appears!

The Snow Fairy scented, star shaped Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar makes a welcome return this year and this is a good one for younger girls who want to make their baths a bit more magical

The Luxury Lush Pud is scented with lavender, helping to relax you before you head to bed.  There are little balls of colour embedded in it and adds lots of colour to the bath.

The little Bombardino Bath Ballistic is too cute.  He contains cocoa butter to soften your skin and Sicilian lemon oil to give you a little pep in your step.  The fact that he has eyeballs and looks at you, makes me both happy and sad, so a word of advice, don't have him looking at you when you're about to kill him by putting him in the bath.

Father Christmas Bath Ballistic returns from last year and smells really orange-y.  The Christmas Penguin will add lots of bubbles to your bath and is a bright, refreshing scent.  He's also too cute for words.

I buy myself a Christmas Eve bubble bar every year and this year will be no exception.  The jasmine scented bubble bar contains Irish moss powder that helps soften your skin beautifully.

The scarf wearing Snowman Bath Bomb is heavenly scented with vanilla and contains cocoa butter to help soften your skin on those chilly winter nights.

One of my favourite things about Lush at Christmas is the gift sets.  The gift sets that are already wrapped.  I hate wrapping presents (I know, but I'd to wrap presents for the whole family, extended and all, for years and am now allergic), so the fact that Lush have me covered means that someone will invariably be getting one of the gift sets this year!

The Ponche Shower Gel makes a return this year and still has a shot of tequila along with fruits and cinnamon.  This is the only tequila I'll ever be having due events that occurred during what we'll refer to as The College Years.

I think I might be the only person who doesn't like the Snow Fairy scent, but for those who love it, and I know there are lots of you, it's back in all it's glory!  And there's also a Snow Fairy Sparkle Bar that I didn't manage to photograph, but it's bright pink, fairy shaped and full of glitter!

The Rose Jam Shower Gel contains vanilla, goji berry juice and argan oil, making it smell delicious and also good for the skin.  I need to go back and visit this because I can't remember what it smelled like but it sounds interesting doesn't it?

At Christmas, you might be doing a lot of kissing, so it's important to be prepared.  Santa's Lip Scrub is made of castor sugar, coconut oil and smells like Cola bottles!  I'm a big fan of scrubs during the winter and if you're going to be rocking a red lip, preparing them with something like this is important.

After you're finished with the lip scrub, you can use Santa Baby Lip Tint, which is a cola flavoured matte red lip tint, and is perfect for adding a hit of colour during the Christmas season.  This packs a wallop in the pigmentation department and I'll show it to you in more detail soon on the blog.

So folks, do yourself a favour, before the water meters are installed and we have to watch the number of baths we take, get yourself into Lush and pick up some Christmas goodies!


  1. Wow..!! I love them all especially "Snowman Bath Bomb". This one is perfect soap for my son..!!

    1. Kids love Lush too don't they! Any excuse to plink them in the bath ;)

  2. The Rose Jam is lovely, much more sophistimicated than snow fairy so perfect for ladies such as we - as long as we can figure out how to open the bottle :)

    1. Uh oh, is the bottle hard to open, or are you just speaking of us, the two who can't figure out how to pay a bill and get up on high stools ;P

  3. I swear I could smell Lush as I was reading that! Amazing, will have to take myself off to Lush this weekend and get myself some xmas present :)

    1. That sounds so exciting, hope the bath is going to be huge!!!

  5. Great photos, so Christmassy! Penneys have a Holidays are Coming t-shirt that I have proudly been sporting like an absolute freak the past week and a half.
