On Friday evening last week I went up to Birmingham for Lush's Christmas preview. I took the train from school to New Street, got a Starbucks (Caramel Machiato if you were wondering!) did a quick shop and then headed to the event. When I got there I met the lovely Sara whom I had met before and also Chloe who I had chatted to on twitter. We then played a couple icebreakers and were split of into groups to sample various new products.
On the whole lush this year seem to have branched out into more limited edition skincare and beauty as well as the usual bath bombs. Many of this years releases involve improvements on last year's product including hidden surprises, glitter and fragrance. As there are 41 new products I didn't quite test them all but I will give you my top picks.
Ponche Body Wash: This is a lovely body wash inspired by a Mexican Christmas with orange and a shot of tequila. It smells amazing, like a fruity punch and when we were testing it we were actually given a glass of punch to drink with it!
Lush Candy Mountain Bubble bar: This is one of the improved products which this year is pearly pink and white creating glittery bubbles in your bath.
Golden Wonder Bath Bomb: Possibly my favourite bath bomb, it has many different layers, gorgeous little golden stars and is really enjoyable to watch fizzle.
Santa Baby Lip Tint: This is a lovely coca cola smelling lip tint that is a cool toned red, I love the name too! I actually liked this so much that I bought it so expect a review up soon.
Let the good times Roll: I quite like lush Dark Angels and this seems pretty similar in concept but gentler. It is basically a scrub/cleanser that you mix with water in your hand and then wash your face with. It even smells like toffee popcorn - yum!
Lush's Christmas collection available in stores now.
Have you tried anything from lush?
