A not so Festive Lush Haul

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

I'm feeling very festive this year and I decided to pop into Lush and get some of the festive loveliness they bring out each year. 

I think I may have failed in my mission as I think only two of the things I got are from the Christmas range. The reason for my failure was glitter, that sparkly work of evil (Ok bit extreme - I was a magpie in a former life and usually love sparkly things but not in a bath bomb). 

Lush Haul

There were a couple of favourites that I wanted that are now coated not just sprinkled in glitter, the rose jam bubbleroon to name just one. I'm going to go back and get a bottle of the shower gel / bubble bath. I also forgot to pick up a bottle of snow fairy.

I tried to pick up new things to try and I find it really hard to distinguish different smells when I'm in store as everything is so highly fragranced. A couple of the assistants were trying to get me to describe the smell of the Yuzu and coco bubbleroon and I couldn't put my finger on any specific smell. Now I'm home i've given it a good long sniff (as you do) and it as a distinctively baked good smell, not quite pasty but not quite cake. It does smell good and I'm looking forward to trying this.

After the disastrous choice I made with the shampoo bars the last time I bought one (the orange one, it was horrible and crumbled and did nothing for my hair) I was reluctant to buy another. Also we have at least 6 bottles of shampoo on the go in the bathroom. I had a bit of a wait for the till and was stood near the shampoo bars and The Jason and the Argan Oil one has a Rose Jam like scent, which I was hoping would make up for all the  glitter on the bubbleroon. I haven't tried this but I'm excited to try it.

Lush Haul Butterbear bath bomb
On to a Christmas favourite and I know the Butterball is around all year but Butterbear is a perfect size, I love that he is white and how moisturising he is. He is also adorable and a bargain at £1.99. I really do prefer the all white, no bits, not glitter, no mess simplicity of this bath bomb.

Lush Haul Ickle babybot bath bomb

If there is one things that I have repurchased the most from Lush this year it has to be the Ickle baby bot bath bomb, for me this is great value at £1.99 and a product I can easily justify and afford. It smells amazing and does really relax me. I love that it's available all year round.

My final product was a bit of a gamble, I'm not sure I like the smell but it's pure whiteness appealed to me. I believe this is colourful inside and I will be testing it out as soon as this post is written. I do think the standard sized bath bombs are a bit too big and over priced. I wish they all had the option of the smaller size. I know you can cut them down but I really don't want to go through that effort if I can't break them in half with my hands.
