In two years of blogging I can’t believe I haven’t posted a Lush Haul and with all the gorgeous bath bombs and bubble bars in their Christmas range I couldn’t help but pick up a few treats. There’s something calming and relaxing about having a soak in the bath on a cold winters evening, followed by wrapping yourself up in a big fluffy robe and sipping on a hot chocolate or glass of wine.
I adore shopping at Lush and often pick up a few bits if I want to add something extra special to my bath or shower, but at Christmas I cannot resist all those wonderful smells and it’s almost like there’s a huge magnet right outside the door that drags me in the shop.
Now I’m all set for those cosy nights in and over flowing bubble baths.
The first thing I picked up was a bottle of Snow Fairy Shower Gel as this is one of most my favourite scents from the Lush Christmas range, it has a sweet, candy bubblegum fragrance lathers up beautifully and I think my December mornings wouldn’t be the same without it.
To go with the shower gel I picked up a tub of Snow Fairy Body Conditioner, I honestly didn’t know what to expect from this apart from it smelling absolutely gorgeous. I have really dry skin and often apply an extra body cream, the Lush Body Conditioner is a thick, creamy formula which you wash off in the shower and it’s super hydrating.
I bought a few bits from Lush as gifts last Christmas so this year I couldn’t resist treating myself to a Magic Wand Bubble Bar. It smells absolutely gorgeous, with a sweet candy fragrance, and looks so cute sitting by my bath. You simply run a bubble bar under the tap or round in the bath for a bit, then it turns the water pink with loads of bubbles. If you only splurge on one bath product from Lush this year, make it the Magic Wand bubble Bar as you get two luxurious baths out of it,
It wouldn’t be a Lush Haul without a few bath bombs added in, but I was spoilt for choice and I just wanted almost every one I saw. Being sensible, I narrowed it down to four.
This includes lavender and Ylang Ylang, so it’ll help to calm and relax me, perfect to unwind after a stressful day and it’ll help send me off to sleep. I can’t wait to see my bath full of all it’s bright, rainbow colours.
I was so excited when I saw Lush had a bath bomb in the Snow Fairy collection. This is just as amazing as the shower gel with a sweet candy cupcake fragrance, making my bathroom smell divine for hours afterwards. I couldn’t wait to try this bath bomb first, as soon as I dropped it into the bath it began to fizz and the water was full of beautiful pastel pink and white swirls. It took some time to fully break down and there were still a few bits floating in the bath, maybe as I don’t have really hot baths, however my skin did feel extremely soft and smooth afterwards.
I was over the moon to see this bath bomb back in the Lush Christmas Collection as I’d seen it everywhere last year but never got round to buying it. It’s supposed to have an uplifting fragrance while turning the water a calming blue and releasing honey sparkles and golden stars. I’m daydreaming of getting in that bath right now!
My Christmas jumper and Santa hat this year are both pink and white, I fancied a change from the traditional green or red, so it only seemed right that I picked up this bath bomb to complete my cosy winter’s night in. It has such a warm, spicy fragrance, filled with lemon oil, ginger and mustard and designed to soothe away aching muscles after a hectic day. I I also bought one for Adrian while I was there as it’s not a feminine smell like my other bath bombs, lets hope he loves it as much as I do.
