Review | Ready for Christmas 2013 with the new Lush Christmas products

How time flies! It seems like it was only yesterday that I was puffing and sweating in a 30°C heat wave, and now all of a sudden it’s November. November! That means that next month is December*! And December is all about Christmas and getting in the holiday spirit. Unfortunately I can’t take time off from work during the holidays this year, so I had to cancel my trip to Belgium. So no Christmas and New Year’s with friends and family for me this year :-( Sucks. A lot. But it is what it is and there is nothing I can do about it. I will just have to celebrate Christmas alone this year, and a great way to do that is with a bunch of Lush Christmas products. If there is one Christmas collection that I am always looking forward to, it’s the one from Lush. Bath bombs in the shape of a snow man or a Christmas gift, a Snow Fairy scented Christmas star on a stick, shower gel with tangerine and tequila,… Yep, Christmas 2012 at Lush really was great fun! And it won’t be any different this year. Check out the products I got from this year’s Lush Christmas collection!

Move over Bubblegum lip scrub, because I think I’ve found a new favorite! Yep, the new Santa’s Lip Scrub is well on its way to becoming my new number one. Like all Lush lip scrubs the Santa’s Lip Scrub is made with natural sugar. It gently scrubs my lips and makes them nice and soft. And the cola candy flavor makes the scrub rrreally fun to use.

The Lush Santa Baby Lip Tint tastes like cola candy as well, but just a little less strongly. That’s fine though, because otherwise I’d just keep licking off the product. The color of the Lush Santa Baby Lip Tint is a pretty warm Christmas red – perfect for the holidays – with a lovely matte finish. The formula contains shea butter and on paper that should make the lip tint very nourishing, but I still find the texture quite hard and dry and therefore a bit difficult to apply. So I always apply a bit of transparent lip balm first and then put the Santa Baby Lip Tint over it.

Lush Christmas Bath Ballistics

An absolute must for those who don’t know Lush yet and want to explore the brand: a Lush bath bomb! I got four this year:

– the Golden Wonder Bath Ballistic, a bath bomb shaped like a golden Christmas gift that smells like a fizzy champagne cocktail with orange, cognac and lime

I am going to save my new bath ballistics until next month – I’ll use them to comfort myself when the boyfriend is in Belgium with the family and I am left here all alone – but the amazing smell of the bath bombs already tells me that I am going to enjoy them a lot!

Lush Snow Fairy Sparkle Massage Bar

Oh. Em. Gee. A massage bar in the form of a Christmas angel with shea butter, murumuru butter and cupuaçu butter, AND with glitter, AND with the deliciously sweet smell of the Snow Fairy shower gel! I don’t think it can get any better than this. I love the super sweet candy scent of Snow Fairy, and anything that will intensely nourish and soften my skin gets a head start with me. I like to use the Snow Fairy Sparkle Massage Bar after showering to moisturize my skin. I don’t care much for the glitter in the massage bar, but meh, a little sparkle during the holiday season never hurt anyone I guess.

Lush Rose Jam shower gel

Last but not least I got the Rose Jam shower gel. Just like last year it’s available in limited edition only, so make sure to get yourself a bottle before it’s too late! The Rose Jam shower gel smells like roses and vanilla and contains goji berry juice and argan oil. The scent is very sweet, just the way I like it. It really is a pleasure to use, as is the case with all Lush shower gels.

Not that I’m surprised, but I am very happy with this year’s Lush Christmas products. I’m pretty sure that between now and December 25 more Lush Christmas products are going to find their way to my bathroom!

The Lush Santa’s Lip Scrub and Santa Baby Lip Tint (both 14 CHF), the Lush Bath Ballistics (from 6.80 to 8.90 CHF), the Lush Snow Fairy Sparkle Massage Bar (14 CHF) and the Lush Rose Jam shower gel (25 CHF for 250 ml) are all available at Lush.

Did you get anything from Lush’s 2013 Christmas collection yet? What is your favorite Lush Christmas product?

  1. Zo jammer dat je helemaal alleen zal zijn met de feestdagen… Gelukkig heb je de Lush producten nog ;-) De Rose Jam douchegel en Snow Fairy massage bar lijken mij het fijnst!

  2. So sorry to read that u won’t be able to take some time off for the holidays.:( But yay to Lush Christmas Collection:) I’ve always been a big fan of the company, but haven’t gotten anything there lately. Will see if I can score some of these bath bombs.

  3. Zoveel leuke spullen! Helaas heb ik geen bad. De Lush Santa Baby Lip Tint moet ik echt hebben, wat schattig!! En misschien rare opmerking, maar je laat die scrub wel heel sexy lijken zo met je lippen haha.

  4. J’adore cette marque, j’ai déjà essayer les boules effervescente de bain ( à la rose) et j’adore ca! Et aussi le beurre à cuticule. Le gel douche confiture de rose me plais bien, autant je me laisse tenter! Courage pour les vacances de Noël, moi aussi je n’en ai pas cette année.
    Bisous ma belle à bientôt.

  5. Aww I’m so sorry to hear you won’t get any days off! That sucks :(

    I honestly didn’t expect the lip tint to be so pigmented, but whoa doesn’t that thing pack a lot of pigment! The bath bombs are cute, but I don’t have a bathtub so I have to pass ;)

  6. Mmmm I find Lush a bit expensive and the shop assistants extremely annoying, which is why I nearly never go into their shops. But I just love their bath bombs!

  7. I think I need to pay a visit my local Lush store soon. Their bath bombs smell heavenly and the X-mas editions look great! I use them to scent my drawers sometimes ;)


  8. Ohhh goed dat je het zegt over die Rose Jam
    douchegel, ik ga volgende week halen!!
    Leuke Lush aankoopjes overigens, die lip
    scrub klinkt goed, al ben ik bang dat ik eerder
    de suiker aan het aflicken ben :P Xx

  9. Wat een mooie producten! :-) Ik heb helaas geen bad & er zit geen Lush bij mij in de buurt :-( Wat fijn dat je te horen hebt gekregen dat je ouders met oud & nieuw komen! Jammer van de kerstdagen…

  10. Mooie items!! The Golden Wonder had ik vorig jaar en vond ém heerlijk, zonde dat ik ém laatst niet heb meegenomen. Mooie kleur op je lippen.. echt een sexy Mrs X-mas kleur ;-)

  11. Echt jammer dat je de feestdagen niet in België kunt vieren, maar alsnog er het allerbeste van maken. Wat een kleur komt er van de lip tint en cacoa met vanille, yumm!

  12. Ik vind die bruisballen er allemaal zo leuk uitzien en ook de Santa’s Lip Scrub zou ik zeker wel eens willen proberen als die naar cola smaakt. Ik vind het ook wel heel rot voor je dat je met de kerst helemaal alleen zal zitten, maar ik hoop dat je met oud en nieuw wel hele fijne dagen hebt met je ouders samen.

  13. ohhh wat een prachtige producten <3 die snow fairy bar en WAUW wat een kleur komt er van die lip tint af! ik heb nog niks van deze collectie (überhaupt nog niks van lush, shame on me!) maar daar moet maar eens verandering in komen…. ;)

  14. I’ve never tried Lush products, although there is a store nearby. Actually the reason I haven’t tried the stuff is because I used to live very near that store, and the smell was so so intense to smell all the time like that. But now that I’ve moved I think I’ll have to go and try some out, because you’ve made these products sound very nice indeed.

  15. LOL Cola scented Santa? Coincidence that Coka Cola “created” the image of Santa? Love the idea! Erm Rose & Vanilla? I think I’ll need to get it since I only have about 15 shower gels atm and might run out soon! :)

  16. Oh balen zeg dat ze niet met de feestdagen kunnen komen… Ik wens je alsnog wel fijne dagen toe!!!

    Die lip scrub lijkt me erg apart en linkt goed!

  17. Oh anew lip srub. My favorit so far was (of course) the bubblegum scrup. So delicious. ;) nut cola is also interesting. Maybe i would prefer one with cinnamon or something like that for christmas. Would be interesting, you dont think so?

  18. The Santa Baby Lip Tint is such a stunning colour! What a beautiful red :) Rose Jam sounds lovely – I smelled it in the store but I think it was a bit too strong/sweet for me. But the ingredients make it sound very nourishing.

  19. I didn’t know they had a snowman bath bomb/ballistic out! I’ll definitely check that out when I’m there. LOVE the scent of Father Christmas. Ahhhh, these products are getting me excited for Christmas! :D

  20. Oh boooo! I am so sorry to hear about you having to cancel your trip home for Christmas, Melissa! I hope you will be able to take a trip another time to celebrate, but that really blows. : Life is so unfair when we’re adults, isn’t it?! Anywho, that aside, I pretty much want one of everything showcased here! And there’s a penguin-shaped bath bomb that I don’t even care how much it costs, I’m getting one! That lip scrub, btw – NEED. I’m about to run out of Bubblegum so the timing is perfecto!

  21. Aw, so sorry to hear that you can’t go to Belgium for Christmas. :(

    That LUSH lip tint looks so fun, and I’m a big fan of the Golden Wonder! Hope there will be lots of goodies on the way to help occupy you this season. :D

  22. Hoera voor Lush! Ik hou echt van alles :) De lip tint is geweldig he? Ik vind hem echt prachtig, al is hij inderdaad redelijk hard. Even tussen je handen opwarmen helpt wel goed :)

  23. Do you know how long the Christmas collection will be out for? I won’t be able to get my hands on it until later in December, perhaps after Christmas. Will the products still be available at the end of December and maybe even early January?

I love your comments!
