A First Look At The LUSH Christmas Collection


With only nine weeks left to go, Christmas products are appearing in LUSH stores and online by the dozen. Overall there is an astounding sixty four products in the Christmas collection, a mix of both brand-new goodies and returning favourites including bath bombs, shower gels, body conditioners and soap. I couldn't resist picking up a handful of Christmas treats the last time I was in store, so here's a little look at and my first impressions of products from the LUSH Christmas release!


Once Upon A Time Body Lotion

Every time I look at or use this product, the 'Once Upon A Dream' song from Sleeping Beauty begins to play in my head. Every. Damn. Time. Fortunately this body lotion is just so amazing that I can forgive this minor inconvenience. Once Upon A Time lotion smells exactly like the So White bath bomb from last year's Christmas collection. Unfortunately So White is not making a return this year, so I'll have to get my crisp apple and lemon fix from Once Upon A Time instead.

Buck's Fizz Body Conditioner

Once you pop, you just can't stop! I am absolutely loving this Brazilian orange and grapefruit oil in-shower moisturiser and it's become my go-to for the colder days when I can't face standing in a freezing bathroom to apply lotion. Make sure you check out my full review of Buck's Fizz, it's good stuff.


Bûche de Noël Fresh Cleanser

It smells like guinea pig food, but I'm kind of ok with it? Bûche de Noël is basically a Christmas version of Angels On Bare Skin cleanser, which is one of my favourite fresh cleansers. It's also incredibly easy to wash off after use, whereas with other cleansers I've found I need a toner to remove the last few grains. Containing Christmassy delights such as cranberries and brandy, I find Bûche de Noël to be a 'true' Christmas product.

Golden Pear Soap

Soap is one thing I never buy from LUSH. I have only ever tried Rock Star and Coalface in my life, but as soon as I smelt Golden Pear I knew I had to have it. It smells like a warm, yet fruity cocktail, and I couldn't resist the golden lustre all over it (which is made from seaweed, so my eczema-suffering mum can use it too!)


Twilight Shower Gel

After writing about this shower gel in my birthday haul post and using it a few more times, I can safely say that I actually don't like the scent of Twilight (I know, I'm a monster.) It does however work really well in creating a night-time routine, so instead of using it as a shower gel I'm using it as bubble bath to create dreamy, Sleepy-scented bedtime bubbles.

Butterbear Bath Bomb

(Not pictured - it kept crumbling!)
Now who could forget beautiful little Butterbear? I was gutted last year when I realised Butterbear was a Christmas release and I couldn't get it all year long, but luckily the sweet little vanilla-cocoa bear in back in two forms this year as not only a bath bomb, but a washcard too. I wish LUSH made a body lotion in this gentle scent (or brought back Butterball shower gel) - I'd buy a 1kg tub of it!

Are you snapping up any of the LUSH Christmas products?

  1. I love Christmas for Lush products. Nothing better than a pamper session and a deliciously scented bath in a cold winter's night.

    The Once Upon A Time body lotion sounds nice. Shame about the So White bath bomb.

    1. Golden Pear just smells delicious! I still haven't used mine yet as the glitter is too pretty to wash away

  8. I’m still yet to buy anything from the Halloween collection, so I definitely have my eyes set on at least one thing from the Christmas collection! I think it’ll have to be Butterbear..

  9. I've been feeling so festive today so knowing the Lush Christmas range is out is the cherry on top! I try to stock up on butter bears so I can use them all year round; they're so much cuter than the normal ball and cheaper too!

    1. Butterbear has to be my absolute favourite scent as well, I'm currently stalking eBay to try and get some Butterball shower cream!
