A few weeks ago I made my first Lush purchases and a love affair began. I had to get more, especially as the new Christmas range has launched. Glitter, festive scents, and a legion of snowmen and angels have taken over the stores and are just waiting to bring you some festive cheer and brighten up the darker months!
I nipped into the Trafford Centre store this weekend for a browse and just had to take some pictures of the stunning displays!
Spicy scents of nutmeg, clove, cinnamon filled the air and I wish my photos could convey the amazing fragrance! But how gorgeous does everything look? It was by far the most festive shop in the centre. Lush certainly don’t do things by halves; no understated, chic, elegant Christmas displays here – this was glitzy, bright and ho-ho-hot!
Onto my purchases:
I couldn’t resist the lure of the cute angels, nor a bit of pink or shimmer, so I picked the lovely Snow Angel Bath Melt, a Snow Fairy Shimmer massage bar and the limited edition, extremely popular Snow Fairy Shower Gel. They smell fabulous and I can’t wait to have a pamper session and use them!
My little one loves her baths so for her I picked the Dashing Santa and Ickle Robot bath bombs and a Creamy Candy Bubble Bar. Intended as stocking fillers I just hope I can hang onto them till Christmas – but I can forsee me having to repurchase! Finally the scent of the Yog Nog Soap was totally irresistible – it smells like Cinder Toffee – so naturally a slice of that snuck in!
Of course there are the ones that got away and on the drive home I regret not purchasing the following:
This Snowcake Soap smells divine. I wanted whole cake though. It looks so pretty!
If Martians celebrated Christmas this must be what their puddings look like! I totally wish I’d got the Holly Golightly Bubble Bar now, it looks so festive and cute, doesn’t it. Plus it turns the water so green and delightfully shimmery!
What do you think of Lush’s Christmas specials? Have you treated yourself to any yet? I’m really hoping a few of their beautifully wrapped goodies find their way under my tree!
