Early Christmas Treats
It’s almost become a Christmas tradition for me to pop into a Lush store and have a good ol’ whiff of their Christmas releases and every year I always seem to walk out with a paper bag full. Of course, this year is no exception. I particularly enjoyed the Christmas releases this year which features some exciting new additions and some old festive favourites and if there is a time of year where popping into Lush is essential, it is definitely Christmas time!
With traditional festive scents of spices and skin loving ingredients, I love using Lush products this time of year and will forever welcome myself and the house smelling of Christmas at all times. This year I decided to stick to bath products, into bath melts and of course, a bath bomb as honestly, is there anything better than a steaming hot, relaxing bath on cold Winter nights? Add some mulled wine (or hot chocolate, whatever takes your fancy!), a Christmas scented candle (may as well go over the top, eh!) a good festive read or Netflix on your iPad balancing expertly on the bathroom ledge and you’ve got yourself the perfect relaxing Christmassy evening. Need some inspiration on what to add to your Lush basket this year? Look no further!
You may only be able to typically use a bath bomb once, but I just couldn’t resist adding this reindeer-adorned, red bath bomb into my basket. If you like traditional Christmas scents, I’m talking a touch of cinnamon and a dash of spice, then Christmas Sweater is going to be right up your street. The second I smelt this it took me back to Christmas nights and truly put me in the festive spirit. The colour this turns your bath is beautiful as well, with lovely injections of reds and yellows. My favourite Lush Bath Bomb is definitely Twilight, but this is a very close second…
Definitely, one I am already wanting to re-purchase before the festive season ends!
If I am being perfectly honest, I definitely brought this little cutie based on looks alone but I do love a Bubbleroon and you will too if you are after lots of bubbles and a product you can use again for a few times. This oddly has a Summer scent which I was initially disappointed with as I love the classic festive scents but actually, upon using it I have grown to love it! The scent is very fresh but subtle, so I feel this is perfect for those who don’t enjoy the overpowering scents that some of the Christmas collection has. For me, this was the perfect morning bath scent with it’s fresh, clean scent and let’s be honest, it looked extremely cute sitting, waiting to be used on the bathroom shelf!
The Magic Of Christmas
I picked up The Magic of Christmas bubble bar last year and I absolutely adored it! Whilst I’m not keen on the glitter, the cinnamon and clove scent gives you that instant scent of Christmas with a hint of spice and sweetness. It’s truly gorgeous and definitely would make the perfect stocking filler, just look at how pretty it is, the perfect accessory for anytime bath time and… let’s be honest, it isn’t going to look out of place on the gram, is it?!
I find that I tend to get around four to five uses out this which is perfect for me but if you want a stronger scent in your bath and more bubbles, you can obviously use it for less. Definitely one of the more visually stunning pieces in Lush’s Christmas collection this year! Just hold it under running water and swish around in your bath and you’ve got yourself a truly festive pamper!
Tree-D Bath Oil
I haven’t tried any of Lush’s bath oils before but I was definitely enticed by tree-d’s beautiful Christmas tree design and the promise of instant hydration which my skin is definitely craving for this Winter! Pop the little tree into your bath and it will melt away leaving a bath full of almond oil and shea butter, which is just as dreamy as it sounds, believe me!
This has a citrusy scent that I really love and still remains festive and leaves your bath water a beautiful ocean-green colour that I’m all over. I used this by using one half at a time (the half go together to make the tree – so it’s fun too!) and found this was the perfect amount. But of course, for a double dose of hydrating and comforting oil and ocean-green water, pop the whole tree in! You won’t be disappointed!
T’was the night before Christmas… and across the world, people were popping Christmas Eve under their bath taps for the perfect night-before-the-Christmas-madness, relaxing bath. This may not have a traditional Christmas scent, but the scent is luxurious and indulgent and truly the perfect scent to use just before the big day. It’s strong and there is a hint of floral but there is definitely something Christmassy about it which is lovely!
This turns your bath a beautiful green colour and the bubble bar itself is just gorgeous with the blue background to yellow stars. What’s best is that you can get multiple uses out of this too, I have certainly made sure to save a little bit for Christmas Eve!
