Here is perhaps the largest amount of Lush items that I have owned at one time! This Christmas I have been lucky (AKA so spoilt!) enough to be gifted these gorgeous products from an absolutely lovely friend of mine, who also happened to let me open my pressie early, yay! I am so beyond happy with these products that I thought I'd make them their very own blog post :-)
How beautiful is this amazing gift box?! And not only is it really pretty but the products inside are the best I've ever had and I'm so excited to try each and every one out. It is the HELLO GORGEOUS gift set and it contains five of Lush's most popular indulgent products!
Firstly, the lovely bath bomb SAKURA which I actually used in my bath tonight (video here on my Insta) and I loved it - it smelt amazing but not too over-powering, was super fun to watch fizz, and didn't leave a nasty greasy residue on my skin as others have done... I can still smell it on my skin now, mmm!
The second product is THE COMFORTER, a super-sized bubble bar (that pretty purple and white product you see above). This bubble bar lasts two whole baths, it only takes 1/2 a bar crumbled underneath a running tap to create lots of bubbles with a delicious blackcurrant fragrance. It contains cypress oil which makes it super calming and bergamot oil which also makes it lovely and uplifting.
Third product is the GORGEOUS facial moisturiser - I didn't even know that Lush did facial skin care! This is a very light moisturiser, filled with freshly-juiced fruits and cold-pressed and organic oils. It came in this cute little tin as it is only sold in very small batches to keep it fresh and minimize preservatives, which I think is fantastic. The fresh fruits aim to refine pores, matify skin, remove dead skin cells, soothe and moisturise. I'm very excited to test this out and if it works well with my skin I'll be sure to do a review!
Next up is the VANILLA DEE-LITE hand and body lotion. I am the biggest fan of anything vanilla scented and my hands are extremely dry at winter time so I was very chuffed when I found this at the bottom of the box. This lotion is packed full of fresh kiwis, cocoa butter, illipe butter, extra virgin coconut oil and tamanu oil with a Fair Trade vanilla scent. Mmmm! Sounds good enough to eat, right?
Last but not least is the RUB RUB RUB shower scrub, another item that I never knew existed. Unbelievably, this shower scrub is not only for the body... it can also be used to add shine and volume to the hair... yes, really! I don't know if I dare, but as it's packed full of mineral-rich sea salts (a natural antiseptic - who knew!?) and rejuvenating lemon juice, I might just have to give it a go. Oh and it smells incredible too, by the way.
Not only did I receive this generous gift box but also two separate products too... The BUBBLEGUM lip scrub (that I've lusted after for years) and the NONE OF YOUR BEESWAX lip balm, which I have been advised to use together, and it's a heavenly combination! First I buff away at my lips with this utterly scrumptious scented lip scrub that not only tastes yummy but really does leave my lips feeling super smooth and glowing, I then apply this hydrating lip balm to soothe my exfoliated lips, it contains extra virgin coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax to bring moisture and provide protection.
I love that most Lush products are so versatile and that one product can have so many uses, and the fact that they're all fresh, handmade and against animal-testing is even better. I think these Lush boxes are such a nice gift and a brilliant way to test out different products without committing to buying full size. It's a great way to try out new things you would never usually pick out yourself.
All these products are still in store and luckily they're not seasonal so can be found all year round.
Have you ever used any of these products? Can you recommend me a favourite of yours?
Merry Christmas!(9 days to go... and certainly counting)
