AW14 Lush Haul

Friday, 31 October 2014

Going back to basics this week with a super exciting Lush haul, full of Hallowe'en and Christmas themed treats.

I definitely spend too much of my sort-of-hard-earned cash on bath products. I went into Lush this week with the intention of 'having a look' and ended up leaving with well over 10 items.

Have a look for yourself at what I picked up!


L-R

Dashing Santa
Make a dash for this moving Santa bath bomb with a cheerful and uplifting scent of satsumas at Christmas. Watch Santa fly about your bath as his golden boots fizz away, releasing toning mandarin oil, bergamot oil and orange flower absolute that help put a spring in your step, too.

Luxury Lush Pud
Unwind (or calm down excited children) with this soothing bath bomb. Perfect before bedtime, drop this in the bath and watch it create pastel-coloured islands in the pink water as it fizzes and froths. Sharing its fragrance with Twilight bath bomb, the comforting tonka absolute, ylang ylang, and relaxing lavender oils will help banish tension.

Candy Mountain
Make bathtime an even sweeter time with this pink peak of a bubble bar. Crumble this under running water for mountains of glistening bubbles topped with a magical pink mist. The candy scent wafting through the steam includes Fair Trade vanilla absolute, wrapping you in a comforting embrace. If you like the fragrance of our Rock Star soap and Creamy Candy bubble bar, you're in for a treat. 

The Christmas Hedgehog
If you're feeling prickly this festive season, indulge in a soak with this softening bubble bar made with organic shea and cocoa butters as well as soothing essential oils. Crumble under running water and unfurl in the silky waters as the rose absolute and ylang ylang essential oil get to work on frosty moods.

Sparkler
A crackling and fizzing Rose Jam-scented bath bomb that makes bath night fireworks night. The soothingly-fragranced bomb fizzes and crackles in an explosion of colour, spinning around the bath turning it into a fiery, shimmering display.



L-R

Holly Golightly
Come on in out of the cold and wrap yourself up in this comforting Christmas blanket of a bubble bar. Break the generously-sized pudding into two and crumble under running water. Its festive spice fragrance is like bathing in a hot toddy, perfect for getting you in the Christmas spirit. 

Golden Wonder
If you're wondering what's inside this golden bath bomb, give it a shake and drop it in the bath to reveal its glittering contents. Soak in its soft citrus fragrance as the vibrant gifts inside unveil themselves and make you feel as if you're bathing in luxury. The uplifting blend of sweet orange, lime and cognac oils will leave you feeling cheerful.  

Northern Lights
Escape into relaxation with this bath bomb that gives an impressive display no matter where you are in the world. As the ends fizz away, the middle slowly dissolves to reveal blue and neon green, turning your water into a calming jasmine and ylang ylang-scented swirling night sky scattered with stars. 

The Christmas Penguin
Pop in The Christmas Penguin for a mood-boosting bubble bath that will set you up for the festivities. The beautiful blend of orange flower absolute, Sicilian mandarin and lemon oils will revive and refresh your mind and skin. Crumble under running water to create bubbly glaciers and snow drifts.

Wizard
Cast a Jingle Spell over weariness with this shimmering bubble bar that makes bath time magic. With energising tangerine oil and purifying juniperberry and fennel essential oils, the Wizard banishes stress and helps you recover. Perfect for those occasions when you've over-indulged, the Wizard will disappear after Halloween, so grab enough to see you through the party season.

Sparkly Pumpkin
Have a ball in the bath with this warming and cheerful bubble bar that adds a bit of sparkle to a cold night. The energising blend of juniperberry, lime and grapefruit oils packs a punch. Perfect for a long, lingering soak, just make sure you get out of your bath by midnight...



I've tried most of my purchases before and Candy Mountain is my all-time favourite Lush bubble bar. I'm a sucker for that signature sweet scent!

I also tried Northern Lights in the bath on Wednesday night and was surprised at how good it actually was. The purple and blue fizz made bath-time that little more special.

I'd recommend a trip to your local Lush ASAP as it seems like most people in there are fighting each other for what's left on the shelf. The new additions this year also bring much more excitement rather than going into the shop knowing what you want.

I'm also a huge fan of their Christmas sets or making up my own by being a bit DIY friendly, so this assortment of treats would be the perfect stocking filler without emptying your pockets!

If you're not a fan of baths, then this probably wasn't as much use to you but as it's the 31st, I'm definitely going to try out that Sparkly Pumpkin tonight... 

Thanks for reading and Happy Hallowe'en!
