Lush is a company that has always hugely intrigued me with its fresh handmade products and cute presentation, but every time I walk past a store, I feel completely overwhelmed by all the amazing smells coming from inside, and on the odd occasion where I pluck up the courage to actually enter, I end up making a quick exit because I'm overwhelmed with where to start! I have always known though that every year, their Christmas ranges are ALWAYS something special, and the Lush Christmas range 2011 would of course be no exception.
So when I attended the London Xmas Blogger Meet and had a talk from Sarah Jane the Lush PR guru, and received a goodie bag full of their Christmas range, I was absolutely over the moon to be given a spring board into where to start with their products.
The most substantial item we received was the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb*, a HUGE, slightly clunky, but amazingly glittery addition to bathtime, coated in sparkly golden glitter and shaped like a present with a cute bow on top. I am completely amazed by the mystery inside, which you can hear rattling around as you shake it, and cant wait to see whats inside when I use it. It has a very Lush-esque smell, quite strong but comforting in its champagne-y fragrance. I am definitely going to save it for a special occasion as it seems so luxe.
Superstar Bubble Bar* is slightly less fiddly and seems much younger and fun! It smells deliciously of strawberries, yet still clean and like something I would like to soak in, rather than eat which is what a lot of companies go for, which brings something a little different. There seems to be something a little deeper and wintery to its scent which is quite nice. Plus it looks exactly like something that should be hanging from the Christmas tree! Festive alert!
These products have really won me over, and a few days ago I won the Lush Home for Christmas box full of goodies so I cant wait to try those either! What Lush products are your favourite that you would recommend? I really want to try Angels on Bare Skin cleanser!
