Lush Holiday 2012

Hi y’all! I’m so excited about Lush’s holiday goodies this year! About two weeks ago I picked up just a few new things to try before I go all out and stock up on my favorites, so heres what I think! :


Father Christmas

The Father Christmas bath bomb is a wonderful scent combination of clove, vanilla, and brandy. It’s super relaxing and seems to just warm up your mind, body, and soul. It is supposed to come with a “surprise” inside, but mine didn’t  😦 Though I was surprised the water turned deep green, instead of the pink-redish color I was expecting. If you like BBW Twilight Woods or Warm Vanilla Sugar, you’ll like this. I know I do!


Cinders is one of my ALL TIME favorite holiday luxuries! This one I had tried before so I stocked up big time. This bath bomb smells like sweet cinnamon and is actually filled with little popping candies so during your quiet bath time, it sounds like you’re out in a fantastic luxury wilderness spa next to a crackling fire.  Fantastic, right?!

Santa’s Sack

I was initially very excited about this bubble bar because it is essentially a three in one, one bubble bar being the “sack” and two others being the “presents” that actually can be pulled out of the sack. It’s a clever idea, but the bubbles weren’t as full as I’m used to with Lush. I wasn’t impressed with the fragrance either, its just a generic sweet/spicy smell that has been duplicated time and time again. I could have just gotten another “dud”, but the rest of Santa’s Sack wasn’t enough to make me want to retry it.

Melting Snowman

First of all, I know my snowman’s little nose is missing, but thats ok right? This cute little bath melt has a really deep, rich clove and cinnamon scent. If you are prone to headaches due to strong smells, I would avoid this one like the plague. Its not like the smell is strong in the sense that its all you’re able to smell and it lingers on your skin for a long time, but its strong in the sense that what you do smell gets into your nose and can irritate it. I think it just has a tad too much clove in it. So the only thing I really liked about the Melting Snowman was its looks.

Party Popper

The Party Popper is a bag of tricks! Its the absolute sweetest bath bomb I’ve ever used, it smells like bubblegum, tangerine, and sweet candy. This one has the popping candy in it to create the crackling sounds; and it also has “confetti” in it that doubles as a melon soap to rub all over your body. If you like sweet smells like the Snow Fairy products from Lush, this will be your new favorite bath bomb.

In addition to the cool things with pictures mentioned above, I also picked up the Snow Fairy Shower Gel and the Popcorn Lip Scrub. I first got a taste of Snow Fairy a few years back when they released the Snow Fairy Lip Tint, and from then on Ive been a super fan. So needless to say when LUSH released the shower gel this year i was thrilled! Pick this one up if you can! And as for the Popcorn Lip Scrub…I prefer Mint Julips.
