Lush Christmas Haul | 2017
Snow Fairy season is finally back! All year we patiently wait until we can get our hands on the sweet smelling festive range. While I was sad to see my favourite bath bomb, Father Christmas, wasn’t released this year I was thrilled by the amount of new bath bombs they brought out. I’m very impressed with this range and bought quite a few things that I’m beyond excited to use this. I hope you all enjoy my Lush Christmas haul!
From the website: The Snow Fairy welcomes you to her bon-bon sweet kingdom, with cleansing candyfloss clouds, a bubble gum breeze and luxurious lustre-filled lathers to put you at ease. Summon it in the shower, morning, noon or night, and be filled with comfort, joy and delight.
Obviously the first thing I picked up was Snow Fairy! I made a beeline straight toward it and grabbed the biggest bottle. In hindsight I probably should’ve picked up a few but there’s still plenty of time to get more. Snow Fairy is a Lush cult classic and with good reason! It smells absolutely wonderful and looks so pretty with the sparkle. It’s definitely a must have and something that I buy year after year.
From the website: It’s getting hot in here, so take off all your Christmas jumpers and socks and jump into a steamy bath! After a busy day of shopping and carrying around all those presents, drop this hot and spicy bomb into the water for some fizzy-ho therapy. Sicilian lemon oil with mustard and ginger powders will ease muscles and warm you to your soul. Coriander seed and clove bud oils are sure to spice up your wife and hygge your husband!
This is a new bath bomb they released this year and it looks so cute! I can’t wait to try it. I’ve seen a few pictures of it being used on Instagram and the colours look incredible and not what I would’ve expected at all. It has a classic, winter spice scent to it, making it perfect to use on a cold night.
From the website: Honey-scented sparkles of Brazilian orange and bergamot waltz with swirling, golden stars, creating a world of cobalt colour. As the calming blanket of shimmering, midnight blue unfolds, Brazilian orange and bergamot oils combine to send your mood rocketing up to the stars.
I’ve used Shoot for the Stars a few times before and think it’s possibly the prettiest one of the range. The 3 stars on the outside are very moisturising bath melts and inside there are lots of little, gold, sparkly stars. The water turns a gorgeous deep blue and it smells heavenly. I would definitely recommend you try this, especially if you’re new to bath bombs, because you won’t be disappointed.
From the website: This pear-fect little soap creates a luxurious lather on the skin. Pear purée and cardamom oil cover skin in a scent reminiscent of warm fruit desserts and spiced cakes while murumuru butter moisturises and softens skin. A classy addition to any Christmas bath or shower. Wrap in a knot wrap and hide in the tree’s branches for a sumptuously scented treat.
This beautifully sparkly pear soap smells exactly like pears, unsurprisingly. The scent is extremely strong, to the point where I can smell it as soon as I walk into my room even though it’s still inside the bag. I love the shape and design of this soap, it’s very different to their normal rectangular soaps. I haven’t used it yet but I’ve heard very good things about how moisturising it is.
From the website: Sail away on a bubblegum sea in a boat made of candy floss and fairy dust. Get in the bath and cast this jelly bomb into the water, watching as clouds of skin softening jelly swirl around you like enchanted snow drifts. Soak in the sweet pink waters and float away to Neverland.
Snow Fairy in bath bomb form…need I say more? Of course I had to pick this one up. It smells just like the shower gel and is so pretty and pink. I’ve used one of their jelly bombs before which was the Ectoplasm bomb and really enjoyed it, unlike some of the reviews I didn’t have any issues with the jelly, so I didn’t hesitate to get this one.
From the website: Happiness is a gift and the trick is not to expect it, but to delight in it when it comes in all its exquisite, sweet orange and lime oil glory. Dickens might not have been on about the surprise parcel of lustre and cognac oil that’s ready to unfurl and create bathtime splendour, but he’d have been just as thrilled by it.
Another classic Christmas bath bomb I’ve bought every year is the Golden Wonder. The water turns a very bright blue and golden stars explode from it. It smells lovely and I find it’s one the more relaxing bath bombs. I always love watching it fizz and seeing the colourful surprises inside. It’s a really beautiful bath bomb.
From the website: Wave a magic wand over bath time. Snow fairies of all ages will love swishing this candy sweet magic wand around the bath to turn the water pink and create clouds of candy floss bubbles. Save some for next time (and even the time after) by popping your reusable wand on the side to dry out. Don’t forget to make a wish!
Magic Wand was the only bubble bar I picked up this year. It’s incredible pretty, I’m all over anything that’s pink and sparkly! You can get a lot of uses out of these bars so it’s definitely worth the money. It smells so sweet and lovely and I can’t wait to bathe in pink bubbles!
From the website: When your world is feeling stormy and you can’t take the pressure, chill out with a peppermint and cocoa absolute weather bomb. Relax in the eye of the storm and listen to the thunder rumbling until it all blows over and the waters settle. The forecast looks clear and breezy.
Thundersnow is another new bath bomb for this year and it looks gorgeous! From what I’ve seen on the website and social media, it turns the water a lovely turquoise colour. I really like the smell of this bath bomb and find it a bit more subtle than the others. It also has popping candy in which is always fun!
From the website: When dinner is all over and everyone’s had their fill it’s time for pudding! With the flaming Christmas pudding, carefully decorated yule log or or good old fashioned mince pies with cream, dessert is never a dull affair. But if you need something a little more chill, this is the pud for you. Although bright and vibrant, this bomb is packed full of calming lavender and warm tonka absolute. Let it dance in the water and release it’s rainbow of colours as the sleepy and comforting scent envelops you and whisks you off to dream land. With ylang ylang oil to lift your mood and warming benzoin resinoid to comfort, you’ll be dreaming of sugar plums in no time.
Lastly I got two of the Luxury Lush Pud’s because they have always been my favourite! They are so fun and Christmassy and they smell incredible. I love the little holly decoration on top and the colourful, spots which, when dissolving, burst into a vibrant rainbow. I’m so glad they bring this out every year and hope they never discontinue it!
That was everything I got in this haul. I kind of regret not getting more bubble bars or soaps but overall I’m incredibly happy with everything I bought. I can’t wait to use it all! It’s become a little tradition of mine to have my favourite bath bomb Christmas Eve morning, giving my day a real festive start. I hope you enjoyed this post! Are you tempted to buy any of these?
