It's only a few weeks until Christmas! Have you started your shopping, or do you leave it until the last minute like me? Our Tree is going up this weekend, we went to our first ever Christmas Pageant recently and Mr. 8 is marking off the days on the calendar (I really should get him a proper Advent Calendar, lol). But more importantly, get excited because limited edition Lush Christmas products are now available! I was lucky enough to receive a box of Lush Christmas goodies* from the 2015 range, let's have a look inside.....
I was delighted to see that everything came wrapped in a It's Christmas Deer Knot Wrap, although my design, pictured above, was slightly different from the one featured on the Lush website (more deer, less stocking). It's a lovely silky Greenspun fabric that was actually made from two recycled 500ml plastic bottles. These can be used as eco-friendly gift wrap, worn as a headband or knotted up to make a little carry bag!
Next up is Snow Fairy Shower Gel a cult Lush Christmas product. It's a super-sweet pink sparkly fairyfloss-scented gel that's just flat-out fun to use. The musky sweetness can be a bit much, but if you're into that, you'll enjoy Snow Fairy. My son loves using this in the shower and bath as he's a huge fan of the scent. His skin is always so soft afterwards! I've reviewed it before here.
I loved the Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb! Running this little beauty under hot water provided a myriad of colours, as the water started off light blue, then pretty pink was released from the centre, turning the water dark blue, purple then a midnight blue/almost black hue! Then, when I got into the bath, I noticed a ton of tiny sparkly glitter particles! This was the most relaxing, mesmerizing and joyful bath I've ever had I reckon! It felt magical to be laying in practically black water containing so many shimmery glitter bits swirling around me, like stars in the night sky. I would highly recommend picking one up if you're a bath bomb lover!
So I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of the Fairy Dust Dusting Powder but let's talk about it anyway! This is a pale pink, glittery body dust that basically just makes you sparkle. I guess it would be great if you went to music festivals or nightclubs, but I don't. LOL. It produces a pretty silver shimmer that's eye-catching in the light, and the subtle scent is nice. Here's what Lush say about it:
"All you need is lustre, trust and a little Fairy Dust. Sprinkle this sweet, sparkling pink dust over skin to stay fresh for great big adventures. For dreams that take you past the second star to the right and straight on ‘till morning, you can use it to candy-coat bedsheets too."
I adore the deep red colour of Santa's Belly Shower Jelly and the addition of glitter and little stars make it extra festive! This wibbly-wobbly jelly is a dome of fun. Just try not to play with it (it's impossible, lol). Despite being wobbly, it's a firm mould that stays together when you cleanse with it, producing a thick pink lather that smells of apples! It contains vegan mulled wine, apple juice and star anise infusion. I've changed the way I use these Lush jellies; I used to break off a piece, but found that this wasted product as it often slipped to the floor. Now I use the whole thing to cleanse with, it's actually much easier and harder to drop! These are great value for money; my other one, the Whoosh jelly, is lasting me forever, and I've still barely made a dent in Santa's Belly.
My picks of the bunch are Santa's Belly Shower Jelly and Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb. Such fun products!
