It's the mooooost wonderful time of the year! And by that I mean LUSH has finally released their holiday products for 2013! LUSH Holiday products are always so innovative, fun and sparkly! It's the only time I regress to my LUSH obsessed way and want ALL THE THINGS. I know I'm on a spending ban, but I really couldn't resist placing a LUSH order from the UK. I was introduced to LUSH around the holiday season and that's when I really fell in love with the brand! I guess it's a little tradition now every year to just ogle over their holiday products and have a deep lust for them! I only got some of the stuff I was really dying to try for now as these products haven't yet hit the stores in the US, and I didn't want to pay cray-cray shipping. Also, the bottled shower gels are so much cheaper in the UK than in the US so I just had to order a bottle or two of their holiday scents! I've had time to sniff and play with a few so sit back, relax, and have a look at some of the holly jolly goodies I got that you may want to check out!
Santa's Lip Scrub
After being completely smitten with LUSH's Popcorn holiday scrub from last year (seriously, in my review you could practically hear me shouting), I just had to try their new one for this year. The fact that it was supposed to smell like Cola was an added bonus! I have tried it and I have to say I'm not too crazy about it. It's not as gritty as past scrubs I've tried from LUSH and it doesn't actually taste like Cola ): It took me a while but I figured out what it tastes like and that's the Cherry Chapstick- I used to eat it as a kid and the taste is exactly the same, haha! Don't shame me for knowing! It's not awful, and I will be happy to finish it now that it reminds me of my mental childhood, but Popcorn still holds top spots!
Whoosh Temple Balm
So this isn't exactly in LUSH's holiday range, but I was browsing the UK website to see what goodies they offered that weren't offered in the US and stumbled across this gem. It's a temple balm meant to sure headaches that smells like there ever so loved Whoosh shower gelly. It's citrusy and brightening and I love the smell! I get headaches a lot, but for some reason haven't gotten one yet to test this puppy out. Maybe it's that good? Haha!
Ponche 100mL Shower Gel
I missed out on Ponche last year because I actually didn't buy a lot from the holiday range aside from bath products. I also knew my mom was going to get me a big spanking gift box from them so I was surprisingly good. I'm glad it's back again so I can try it! Ponche is tequila and orange infused shower gel that really wakes up your senses. I love the scent and can't wait to use it for some much needed morning showers for 7 AM shifts at work!
Rose Jam 100mL Shower Gel
OH MY GOOD GOLLY GOSH. How do I even begin to describe this beautifully scented shower gel. I may just dedicated an entire post to this gem (capitalized letters and shouting, included) Rose Jam is a scent that LUSH just teases me with becuase it's ALWAYS LIMITED EDITION. It took everything I had to not buy the 500mL or even the 250mL. It's equal parts sweet, sensual, and floral- such an amazing mix. I'm already planning to buy the 250mL bottle when my ban is over (I could never finish 500mL, haha)
Shoot for the Stars Bath Bomb
I let myself try one bath bomb from all the really snazzy looking ones LUSH came out. The ever so enabling Amy from Paint Potted blogged about this guy and it was enough sweet-glittery goodness that I had to try it first! It smells just like the Honey, I Washed the Kids soap or It's Raining Men shower gel, which is one of my favorite scents! It's smells so delicious and I can't wait to throw it in the bath! I'll probably toss the whole thing because I need to see the spectacle that is LUSH, glitter, and bath fizz!
Abombinaball Bath Bomb
Abombinaball got sent to retro this year. He was probably the most underrated bath bomb when I worked for LUSH two holiday's ago. I felt so bad that I went ahead and bought one and fell in love! Look at this guy! Such a cute little abominable snowman face :) He smells deliciously of peppermint and vanilla- which is a great combination of scents! He practically comes to life in the bath because whatever faster fizzing they've got inside him pushes this guy around the tub like he's trying to run away, haha!
Snow Fairy Sparkle Bar
Last, but certainly not least, is the Snow Fairy Sparkle Bar. SPARKLE bar. SPARKLE. I had to have it. I am a big fan of LUSH's glitter massage bars (Glitterbug being my favorite and I HATE THAT IT'S DISCONTINUED) I was so excited to see another bar of glitter! It smells just like the sweetly famous Snow Fairy scent. It melts SO quickly which actually puts me off a bit. I put my finger on the bar and it turns to a puddle, haha! It is gloriously sparkly though (there's a giant chunk of silvery-white glitter inside this little fairy) I love it, and I'll probably buy another when I run out because I can't resist the glitter! Also, just as a heads up, it's a lot smaller than you think it is!
What LUSH holiday goodies are you waiting to try?
