I am one of those scrooges who refuse to talk about Christmas until Halloween has passed. However, now that it is November my blog is beginning to get in the mood and you'll see a few Christmas themed posts popping up between now and the 25th of Decemeber. And I'm starting it off with my first three purchases from the Christmas Lush range.
Hot Toddy Shower GelWhen I gave this a sniff in Lush my immediate reaction was that it smelt exactly like Christmas. It's a seaweed, ginger, cinnamon leaf oil and lemon oil mash-up with glitter through it (though the glitter doesn't show up on skin). What I love about this is that it's a great zingy fragrance which is fantastic for waking me up in the morning.
Snowman Shower JellyThis is a much gentler fragrance from the Christmas range, which contains buchu, bergamot and lemon oils and is shaped like a snowman. I've been curious about the shower jellies for a while and only decided to pick this up as I love the smell however I don't think I'll be going for any of the other shower jellies. This was slippy and isn't what I want to be faffing about with at 7am when I'm trying to get ready for work. I might take it in with me during a bubble bath at some point but I would say the target market for a jelly would be children - maybe could be a good present for your friends with kiddies?
Yog Nog SoapThis smell isn't up every one's street - it reminded me of some kind of food and a member of Lush staff said it always reminder her of coffee cheesecake. The Lush site does say it contains soya yoghurt, nutmeg spice and cocoa powder so its no surprising it reminds people of food. This is a very creamy soap and I find it very luxurious - perfect for a weekend soak in a bath! I absolutely love it but do have enough self-awareness that this won't be everyone.
