It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like LUSH-mas...


That time of year is upon us once again. The time of year where I make my annual pilgrimage to Lush to stock up on some festive goodness. A treat from me, to me.

Don't get it twisted, I love Lush at any time of year but we all know it does get a little more special during Autumn/Winter. Bath bombs are by far my favourite products that Lush do, not only do they smell divine, I also find they actually benefit the skin. Granted, this is just a little "grab n' go" of what's on offer at the moment and I couldn't leave empty handed...

Star Dust - This has a beautifully uplifting scent, packed full of Bergamot oil, which is an antibacterial that will help cleanse the skin gently. Armotherapists do often use Bergamot to help ease the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder - very apt for those dark nights and mornings. The spicier, festive notes are from the Rosewood Oil combined with vanilla, an antiseptic that smells damn good. It also fizzes away to reveal the sequin-y stars inside. Definitely not the only reason I bought it...

So White - Another clean, crisp scent which I'm definitely reaching for more these days. Bergamot oil makes another appearance in the Snow White inspired bath bomb alongside soothing Neroli Oil and  balancing Rose Absolut. I absolutely love Neroli, it just smells so expensive and it's known for it's toning properties too. This is bath bomb is perfect for those mornings when you just need to take a minute.

Pumpkin Bath Bomb - Last but not least, I picked up Pumpkin as Lush had, sadly, not released the Cinders bath bomb and this was the next best thing. Be warned: this is a fairly strong scent, not for those who are a little sensitive to fragrance. Seriously packing a punch with a festive cinnamon & pimento berry scent, this will seriously warm your cockles. Pop those PJ's on the radiator and you're good to go.


  1. I'm the same, I love all the Christmas bath bombs from lush but not really a fan of the glitter. It gets everywhere. They have just opened a Lush on Oxford St and it's on 3 floors.....pure heaven.


    1. Ah, I know - it's also a pain in the ass to clean out of the bath! I definitely try to reach for the ones without glitter. I'd love to go to the Oxford Street store, i'd spend a bomb. No pun intended! x
