The Lush Christmas range contains some of my favourite products and instantly gets me in the festive mood
*Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel (£7.95, 250ml)I know, I know, the Lush Snow Fairy products are very popular and sought after but I have never tried it before (don't hate me!) and I don't know why I have put off trying it - it's gorgeous! The shower gel is described as 'candy sweet suds that shimmer with magic', if that's not enticing I don't know what is and it definitely smells like candy. The scent is very sweet, candy-like and edible smelling but I probably wouldn't recommend eating it; it looks cute too. The shower gel lathers SO well, you only need a tiny amount so this 250ml bottle will last me ages. The luxurious, creamy bubbles are cotton candy/candy cane scented and make showering in the freezing autumn months so much nicer! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
*Lush Snow Fairy Body Conditioner (£13.95, 225g)The Lush Snow Fairy Body Conditioner contains avocado and mango butter to soften the skin, together with organic jojoba and almond oils that easily absorb leaving the skin incredibly smooth and moisturised - it's basically the body version of a hair conditioner. It has the same gloriously sweet, candy-like and comforting scent as the shower gel and when used together it's double the candy and double the Lush heaven! I'm SO impressed with this body conditioner, it leaves my skin very smooth, soft and moisturised so much so that I don't even have to use a body lotion. Additionally the scent of the body conditioner lasts on my skin for a good few hours (approx. 5-6 hours on me ) and in the bathroom which is incredible! Overall rating: ★★★★★★, 6/5...yes, 6/5, it's that good.
*Lush Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub (£5.75, 25g)Any Lush product would make a fantastic gift this christmas but I think in terms of stocking fillers, these last two products would be perfect. The Lush lip scrubs are a favourite for so many people, myself included and this christmas offering is gorgeous. The Sugar Plum fairy scent is sweet, sugary and fruity so it's a lovely christmassy scent; also the colour is so pretty too! It's a fantastic lip scrub as it is exfoliating but not too harsh and leaves my lips so smooth, soft and preps my lips perfectly for lip balm and lipstick. It's a christmas and new year party prep essential. Although if I'm honest my only problem with lip scrubs is that they are a little messy. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5 (you knew everything was going to be 5/5, it's Lush!).
*Lush Elf On The Shelf Fun (£5.95, 200g)As well as body conditioners, another Lush product range that I haven't really tried is FUN! Lush FUN is a combination of a bubble bar and playdoh, my child self would have been in love with it. The Elf On The Shelf FUN can be shaped into a cute little Santa's helper complete with stripy elf legs! There are a few variations to choose from but this one contains grapefruit and ginger oils, cinnamon leaf oil and gardenia extract; it smells subtle but lovely. I haven't tried this one yet but I have tried the blue FUN and it makes so many bubbles! I'll be making a cute little elf next month so stay tuned on my Twitter/Instagram to see how awfully I can make an elf!
Overall, I'm feeling all of the christmassy feels with the heavenly, sweet and festive products from Lush. All of the products are cruelty free as Lush is an amazing brand in terms of not just products but also ethics and all four products are suitable for vegans too. Additionally all four products that I've featured are 'self-preserving' which means that they don't contain any synthetic preservatives to keep them fresh which is fantastic. If I had to choose just one product as a favourite then it would have to be the amazing Snow Fairy Body Conditioner but I honestly couldn't recommend all of these products enough! Thank you so much to Lush for these festive treats!
