Lush Sale Haul!

After spending 3 days (& 3 browsers!) trying to get on the Lush website to order some goodies from the sale I decided I might as well just go to the shop and have a look in ‘real life’. I’m glad I did as my store was packed with loads of bargains and not just on the Christmas stuff, a lot of the normal gifts were 50% off too! Got a few birthday pressies for next to nothing, win. Here is what I picked up, if you would like anything reviewed let me know, although it might be a bit pointless considering most of what I picked up was limited edition!

xmas 021

Biggest Lush bag of life! This was not particularly useful in other shops as I kept hitting people (accidentally) with it!

xmas 025

These are the things that I got for me, I also picked up a Strawberry Picnic gift set and a Brrrrilliant gift set for some friends.

Here are some close ups of the items and the little description that Lush gives:

xmas 026

Melting Snowman Bath Melt

Exquisitely fragranced with a blend of oils containing vanilla absolute and sweet wild orange, giving him a deep marzipan fragrance with notes of rich fruit, reminiscent of Christmas cake and figgy puddings. Which means he smells exactly the same as our bestselling Snowcake soap.   

But if it isn’t enough to smell of our most popular Christmas fragrance,  he’s also got a body made of water-softening bicarb of soda, cocoa butter and shea butter. This means that when the heat gets to him and he finally melts away, he fizzes those wonderful butters through your bathwater, leaving you soft and moisturised.

Snowglobe Soap

The Snow Globe is sure to be a favourite when winter comes. The whole cake looks a beautifully serene snow globe with dots of white 'snow' throughout. It's a loving nod to a more traditional Christmas this year. Although this is a refreshing citrus soap, it has a different blend of sharper citrus oils to give you an invigorating wash morning or night. We've used organic lemon myrtle for a fresh, slightly herbal citrus note, and lemongrass to complement the fragrance.

This is my all time favourite soap from Lush!

xmas 030

Satsumo Santa

This is a fusion of the British tradition of an orange in the bottom of your Christmas stocking, and the Japanese tradition of splitting a yuzu orange and putting it in your bathwater at Winter Solstice.   

Together they make Satsumo Santa, a fat little fella full of mandarin oil, bergamot oil and orange flower absolute.

He’s bursting to the brim with a beautiful orange fragrance which, when unleashed in the water, will fill your bathroom with the sweet smell of summer.

 

xmas 031

Candy Mountain

Every year we give our best selling Creamy Candy Bar bubble bar a special outfit for Xmas.  Last year it was in the shape of a cane, this year we’ve turned it into a little swirly mountain peak.

But whatever the shape and look, the thing that never changes is that lovely vanilla and candy floss smell and the mountains of soft bubbles.

When the busy season has exhausted you, the hoards of shoppers have pushed and shoved you, and you think you can’t take any more - lie back in a Candy Mountain bath and feel its sweet and comforting hug.

Snow Fairy Shower Gel

Every year we give our best selling Creamy Candy Bar bubble bar a special outfit for Xmas.  Last year it was in the shape of a cane, this year we’ve turned it into a little swirly mountain peak.

But whatever the shape and look, the thing that never changes is that lovely vanilla and candy floss smell and the mountains of soft bubbles.

Snow Fairy Lip Tint

A yummy lip balm and tint for magical pink tinged lips.

xmas 042

Abombinaball

Our big ,shy snow monster ballistic, with a scent of peppermint oil, vanilla absolute and orange oil.

Abombinaball snowmen are rare and exotic ballistics. They don’t hang around for long, so snap one up whilst you can.

Our little icy friend will come out to play any time you choose to have a bath.

He’ll erupt in your bathwater first in a burst of golden yellow that leaves your bathwater an electric green.  He then evades capture as he goes around your bath fizzing and giving off puffs of fine white foam.  Just when you think you’ve worked out what he is and where he’s coming from, he suddenly lets off jets of blue slipstream and makes haste across your bath, suddenly disappearing from wherever it was he came.  Leaving you soaking in a delicately scented, alpine green bath and wishing and hoping that you get to see him again one day soon.

xmas 047

Golden Wonder

This ballistic is like a pass the parcel gift – each layer has something different to offer. This is not for a quick bath because it takes its time, this ballistic, its wonders to unfold.

First take some time to shake it, listen to the little rattle from within and try to imagine what’s in there. Then drop it in your water and gaze in wonderment as gold turns to yellow, turns to blue and spits out soluble stars along the way.

There we have it! All the goodies that I picked up in the 50% off sale, I got all that lot and the two gifts for just £23! Get yourself down to Lush and pick up a bargain – the sale is running until the 3rd of January I think.

Are you a Lush fan?
