WE’RE into December and that means we’re completely justified going Christmas crazy – and what better way than by showing the love for the limited edition Lush Christmas 2015 collection.
Every year Lush dazzles with a collection of delicious bath and shower treats specifically designed for the festive season, and this year is no different.
It’s a bather’s paradise this Christmas with possibly the biggest selection of bath bombs, bubble bars and bath melts LUSH lovers have ever had to choose from.
Kicking off the bath bomb collection is new release Yog Nog. Inspired by egg nog, this yellow bath bomb is infused with spicy clove, soothing soya yoghurt and ylang ylang. It’s like bathing in a bath of toffee bubbles – perfect for those pre-night out baths.
Next up is Star Dust, a gorgeous little offering which is probably best served as a post-party recovery treat thanks to its gentle fragrance of Ugandan vanilla and Peruvian rosewood. It’ll certainly give a boost to the mind and body and is a really nice little treat.
The other bombs in this year’s festive frenzy are all returning treasures, including Father Christmas, Luxury Lush Pud, Cinders, Shoot For The Stars, Lord of Misrule, So White, Golden Wonder, Dashing Santa and Butterbear.
Most are priced at £3.50 each except for Butterbear which is £1.95, Dashing Santa at £2.95 and Golden Wonder at £3.75.
For bubble bar lovers there are four brand new additions and two returning pieces.
Peeping Santa – £3.25 – is a bright red Santa shaped bar sandwiched together with Fair Trade organic cocoa and shea butter which crumbles into the bath with a bergamot and geranium fragrance.
Perfect for Scrooges everywhere is Bar Humbug – £3.65 – which features the classic LUSH swirl but this one has a darker liquorice fragrance thanks to tarragon and fennel. It softens the skin and helps you relax and unwind.
There’s something pretty exciting about the new 5 Gold Rings – £4.95 – which will give five lovely golden baths beautifully fragranced with vanilla and moringa. They look like five cute golden doughnuts and will make fantastic stocking filler if not just a treat for you.
Of course Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a new reusable bubble bar and this year’s doesn’t disappoint. The Magic of Christmas – £5.95 – is a golden, cinnamon treat infused with cloves to stimulate skin which you can re-use several times to keep that festive magic going right through until the new year.
Joining these newcomers are returnees Candy Mountain – £2.95, Magic Wand – £5.25 and Holly Go Lightly £4.95.
There is a new bath melt called Snow Melt – £3.95, which is a bright stimulating mix of fresh peppermint and Sicilian lemon while moisturising treat Snow Angel – £3.95 – is back with its lovely marzipan fragrance.
There are also a number of soaps including the new Father Time with prices starting at £3.10/100g as well as a couple of FUN four-in-one products including The Magic of Christmas, Snakes and Ladders plus build your own Father Christmas or Snowman, all priced at £6.
For the shower there is a new Icing on the Cake Shower Smoothie – £6, a Salt and Peppermint Bark Shower Scrub – £4.95 plus Lush’s hero Christmas product Snow Fairy Shower Gel starting at £3.75 and the new Lord of Misrule Shower Cream from £4.75, and new Santa’s Belly and returning Snowman Shower Jellies from £3.50.
Give the body a lick of moisture with the new Christingle Self-Preserving Body Conditioner – £13.95 or feast your face with new Cranberry face mask – £6.95, and add some magic with Snow Fairy and First Snow dusting powders – £4.95 each.
Celebrate hand and body lotion costs £12.95 or give the lips a treat with Santa’s Lip Scrub – £5.50 or Santa Baby Lip Tint – 5.95.
All of these Christmas products are limited edition and are available online from Lush as well as in Lush stores nationwide.
