Smells like Lush Christmas Spirit

 Prepare to enter a post of Christmas goodness and deliciousness. For the start of December I have the most mouthwatering post for you. It is long, it smells incredible and it could lead you to a shopping orgy. You have been warned! Let's dive into some Lush amazingness.


Το post αυτό είναι πραγματικά τεράστιο και το άφησα στα αγγλικά μόνο. Κάποια από τα προϊόντα αυτά σας τα έχω δείξει στο τελευταίο haul video και εδώ σας έχω μαζί και όσα μου έστειλε η εταιρία Lush να δοκιμάσω. Ξέρω πόσο δύσκολο είναι να προμηθευτείτε Lush στην Ελλάδα, αλλά σε κάθε περίπτωση αν σκοπεύετε να ταξιδέψετε κοντά στις γιορτές σίγουρα είναι ένα κατάστημα που πρέπει να τσεκάρετε. Γενικά είμαι fan αλλά κοντά στα Χριστούγεννα αποτρελαίνομαι. Ελπίζω να απολαύσετε αυτό το μυρωδάτο, λαχταριστό post και μην ξεχάσετε το εορταστικό giveaway που τρέχει στο Youtube ως τις 18 Δεκεμβρίου. Φιλιά πολλά και θα τα πούμε στο επόμενο post ή video.



 Rose Jam came out sometime in September if I recall correctly although it supposed to belong to the Christmas collection. I had already loved the scent and I had included a bottle of this in a gift box I had made for a friend so I was quite happy to see this in the box Lush Switzerland have sent me. I got the 250gr that costs 25CHF (9.25 pounds) and I really like this medium size of their shower gels as it is big enough to enjoy the fragrance but not that huge to start getting bored of it. This one lathers very nicely and has as expected a sweet rosy scent to it. The ones of you that love the Turkish Delight shower smoothie will certainly found this familiar and lovely.


 I will continue with a few bath products as it is known that Lush makes the most wonderful bath stuff.  Even if you are mostly a showers person you must appreciate the loveliness of a relaxing and luxurious bath. And these things I am showing you are so cute and so festive I even feel bad to use them (but then I just think of the wonderful bath and the shame goes away haha). One of the cutest bath bombs from Lush is Snowman . So cuteeee with the carrot nose and the winter scarf! It smells like vanilla and has a tons of cocoa butter perfect to leave your skin soft. It is also a pretty fair buy compared to other ones as it retails at 6.80 CHF a piece (2.5 pounds). Actually it is kinda of the same with the lovely Butterball but in a Christmas form.


 Even cuter in my opinion is the next product which is actually a bubble bar and is called The Christmas Penguin. Look at this sweet little thing, how can you crumble it under water? But when you decide to do it an amazing scent of orange flower and mandarin oil comes out of it (like the Olive Branch shower gel), so nice and refreshing! Retails at 7.9 CHF (2.95 pounds) a piece.


Ok, Secret Santa is  is probably the biggest bath bomb you have ever seen in your life, Made as a replica of the original Lush shop in 29 Poole High Street, this one smells like a Lush shop! Main notes are citrus and ylang -ylang and results in a beautiful orange bath! It is kinda of pricier at 12 CHF a piece (5.75 pounds) but you can get at least 2 baths out of this if you break it in half. And a surprise is waiting inside for you in the form of a small father Christmas bath bomb :D. 


 Let's take a break of the bath stuff as I have a body butter for you. This one is called Sandy Santa and it is a combo of body butter and scrub. His hat is a nice sugar scrub while his face is filled with shea butter and oils and leaves your body nicely moisturised and scented. I love using mine in the shower while I am waiting for my hair mask to do its magic ;). It retails at 16 CHF (4.5 pounds) a piece.


 I left the two most favorite products from the ones I was sent for the end. This beauty is Candy Mountain and it looks and smells fantastic! It is a bubble bar that smells like luxurious creamy vanilla (fair trade vanilla absolute), kind like the lovely Rock Star soap and makes a wonderful bubbly shimmery bath for you! It retails at 7.50 CHF (2.65 pounds) and I cannot get enough of it! 


The last product I was sent, I loved so much that rushed and got 2 more back ups. This is the Snow Fairy sparkle bar, it is new and all of you that love the snow fairy scent and love sparkle want this in your life. Ok in case you are not already absolutely convinced I can tell you a couple more things about this.  This is a hot pink massage bar with a soft shimmery sparkly center that melts with your body temperature and turns into oil that moisturises your skin that is left smelling like delicious bubblegum and full of sparkle. And it is shaped like a fairy. This is the epitome of girly Christmas. It retails for 14CHF a piece (4.95 pounds) and you could even melt it as a wax tart and make your house smell deliciously. Also if you get 2 of these, you get a gift tin to put them in (nice for storage and traveling) as with all massage bars.


 Of course all the stuff I was sent were amazing and smelled absolutely delicious but during Christmas I am a Lush junkie so they were not enough and I had to get a few more things myself. The snow fairy Shower gel needs no introduction. My favorite shower gel of all time, I got 2 more bottles of 250gr for 22CHF each (6.85 pounds). This smells like heaven. My favorite Lush product, just get this already!


 And to complete the set haha, I also go the Magic Wand, a re-usable bubble bar that looks like a stary fairy wand that you can spin in your bath and leave it aside for next time. It looks so pretty and smells like snow fairy. I love it. And every proper fairy princess needs a wand. Even at my age. It retails at 12.90CHF (4.95 pounds) and you can really get a lot of uses out of it!


 I had to get the Golden Wonder bath bomb. First of all look how pretty it looks. All these stuff are the best decoration ever for your bath and it smells amazing until you use them! It smells like orange and lime and cognac and if you shake it it has a gift inside! This one is not just a bath bomb it is a whole experience. And the water looks so beautiful after throwing this one in. This is definitely a treat! It retails at 8.90CHF (3.50 pounds). 


 This one was a spontaneous purchase. It is called Melting Snowman and it is amazingly cute. It is a bath melt and contains a tons of oils (including sweet almond, cinnamon and citrus) and also shea and cocoa butters. Such a cute surprise for a friend and a perfect stocking filler in my opinion for everyone. With this melting little guy I am planning to say goodbuy to the festive period after it ends. It costs 6.5CHF a piece (2.25 pounds) and it is so nice to look at!


  Last but not least, I wanted to try out a product for which I had read great reviews. This is one of the most popular Lush cleansers and is called Let the Good Times Roll. It is so popular that I 've heard they are making it permanent after the holiday season. I got the 100gr package for 16CHF (6.35 pounds) and the moment I opened it I fell in love with the smell. It smells like cookies, corns and cinnamon and even has popcorn in. And I want to eat it but I will use it on my face instead.


 You just need to take a small quantity and add a bit of water to dissolve it in your hands and then use it on your face. It has exfoliating properties (but gentle) and it is suitable for all skin types. In addition it lives the face very moisturised after using as it contains glycerin to lock the moisture in. I have used it a couple of times already and I like it quite a lot especially for the morning when I wash my face without any make up on.


 I know this post was huge but you realised that I cannot resist to all this Lush Christmas goodness. I would like to thank Lush Switzerland for the lovely package they sent me and also for making all these wonderful products so that I can stock up even more! In case some of these stuff are out of stock in your local store (yes already! I know that is crazy but that is how much people love them) check out the online store and do not forget to check out the Christmas gift sets that just arrived in stores. Gifts from 20 to almost 300 CHF for every budget that will definitely make a special person in your life  very happy for the holidays. As you realised I am a total Lush junkie near the Christmas holidays and I am waiting to read your suggestions and opinions. Have you tried any of these? Are you looking forward for the holiday seasons to get for snow fairy bottle or am I the only one?
