A Wintry Lush Haul

4 December 2016

The Lush Christmas Collection is probably the most blogged about festive beauty collections on the block, so don't mind me as I add to the countless posts. A couple of weeks ago I popped into Lush, for just one product (Ro's Argan Body Conditioner) and naturally came out with more than I needed. So if you're on the look-out for some Lush Christmas presents or if you fancy treating yourself whilst shopping for others this festive season, read on for some mini reviews! 

I first tried Ro's Argan Body Conditioner a few years ago, as it came part of the Secret Garden Christmas Gift Set when I got it for my mum and at the time I thought it was a pretty revolutionary product, and still do. When it comes to moisturising my body after showering or having a bath, I'm pretty lazy when it comes to body skincare  - which probably makes me a poor beauty blogger, right? But now that's it's winter and central heating is starting to cause havoc with my skin, I knew this would help me tackle my dry skin and still allow me to be relatively lazy. This works like a hair conditioner for your body in that you rub it into wet skin, leave it for a couple mins and then rinse it off. The formula is jam packed full of oils and butters, with anti-aging argan oil as its base and leaves the skin super soft, radiant and beyond moisturised! This is a little pot of luxury and definitely worth the £16.50 price tag.

The Ponche Shower Gel was a bit of a spontaneous purchase. When smelling it in the Oxford Street store, a shopping assistant told me that if I liked it, I should snap it up now as it was limited edition - and I didn't really need much more convincing than that. This is a fresh, fruity mix of orange juice, plum, bucho oil, and blackcurrant, spiced up with vegan tequila and cinnamon for a festive touch. I'm surprised this doesn't receive more love on the blogosphere, as it is a lovely fragrance and the cinnamon within it supposedly boosts circulation which I could always do with a bit of. It also reminds me a bit of the discontinued Flying Fox Shower Gel which I loved. 

Finally we have the Snowie Bubble Bar. The usual Snowman Bubble Bar has been give a Bowie makeover this year, which is pretty cool. This is a clean, fresh fragrance made up of grapefruit, neroli oil and rose oil, and when crumbled under the warm running water, this sparkly bubble bar creates more bubbles than any other bar I've tried from Lush. I do like this, but it does irritate the skin around my chest and causes me to break out in a light rash - which was really disappointing as it smells lovely and creates so many bubbles. So this might not be one for those with sensitive skin!

Have you tried any of these products? What's your favourite festive product from Lush?
Let me know!

  5. I really need to try more Lush skincare, I remember trying one of their face masks and fell completely in love with it.

    1. Ooh yes I definitely recommend you try more! I really like their Blueberry face mask as it so cooling and nourishing on my skin, but they have some great other products like their bubble bars, toner waters and moisturisers - and they're all natural products and vegan too. Thanks for reading Shireen :) x
