The Sunday Post: Lush Haul

Have a Lush Sunday...

I love Lush. Who doesn’t?! I definitely can’t resist visiting my local store and treating myself to some gorgeous products that were made for a Sunday pamper. I particularly love this time of year at Lush because the Christmas collections are always incredible and everything smells so dreamy. Oh, hey there, Snow Fairy. Well, this year is definitely no exception and I thought I would share with you the recent new additions to the ever-growing Lush collection in my bathroom....

Christmas mornings always start with a glass or three of Bucks Fizz in my house. So, I was so excited to try the Bubbly Shower Gel. This shower gel has such an uplifting and refreshing sweet citrus scent. It really does remind you of a glass of Bucks Fizz. I’m already a massive fan of Lush’s shower gels and, usually at this time of year, you would find me reaching for a 1Kg bottle of Snow Fairy. But, I have to say that, Bubbly is already fast becoming one of my all-time Lush favourites. I just love citrus scents at this time of year.

So, even though Bubbly may have replaced Snow Fairy as my favourite shower gel for the festive season this year, I couldn’t say no to picking up the Snow Fairy Body Conditioner. First of all, this product looks almost too pretty to use. Look at the shimmer. Lush's Body Conditioners are supposed to be applied just before you hop out of the shower or bath and then you just rinse the product off. A little goes a long way with this product. I was rather skeptical that this conditioner would leave a greasy layer on the skin and I have to say that I did...Yet, it didn't last that long (it just takes time for all the oils in the product to absorb) and I was so surprised at just how soft and conditioned my skin felt after using it. The scent does linger for a few hours after use but only subtlety and the glitter in the product does leave a nice shine to the skin. So, this would be the perfect Lush product to use before a Christmas party. This Body Conditioner is a great addition to the Christmas range.

Sleepy was the product from this year’s Christmas collection that I was most looking forward to trying. And, I have to say this body lotion is definitely dreamy. See what I did there?! This product is perfect for those cold winter nights where you’re all snuggled in your softest pyjamas watching Christmas films and eating your body weight in chocolate. The lavender scent is just so relaxing and comforting, without being too overpowering. The lotion is so moisturing and perfect for sensitive skin.  I’m so in love with this product (I just wish it wasn’t limited edition!). Also, if you’ve already started your Christmas shopping, this product would be a gorgeous Christmas gift.   

The final product in this haul is definitely not a new one to my collection. I have talked before on Our Dreams of Fashion about my love for the Mask of Magnaminty Face and Body Mask. I love that it now comes in a self-preserving formula. YAS Lush. The extra amount of honey in this formula definitely gives the mask a more luxurious feel than the non-preserving. But, it’s still the same amazing Mask of Magnaminty that I know and love. I describe this mask as a wonder product for winter, like mint choc chip ice cream for your face with some seriously good benefits. It hydrates, exfoliates, and helps stops those pesky breakouts. If my skin is not looking its best thanks to the cold weather, I reach for this mask and after just one use my skin has its glow back. I will forever be repurchasing this product.
