LUSH Christmas Haul | My FIRST LUSH Purchases

OK, I’m going to admit it… these are my first LUSH purchases. I’m one of those people that go against the ‘hype’, if everyone’s got it, I don’t want it. I’m not sure why but that’s usually the case. Anyway, when the LUSH Christmas sale was launched online I didn’t even want to take a peek. It wasn’t until their website crashed and everyone was talking about it on Twitter that I thought I’d pop into my local store and finally see what the fuss was about. I went the day after boxing day. It was surprisingly quiet and LUSH had each of their Christmas items in stock in their 100’s.

Obviously if I was going to try it, I had to do it properly so I picked up one of almost everything. I was shocked when all 6 items came to £11, I thought it was going to be much more.

LUSH Christmas Range 2015
LUSH Five Gold Rings - LUSH Christmas
LUSH Peeping Santa - LUSH Christmas
LUSH Star Dust - LUSH Christmas

 

The first thing I picked up from the LUSH Christmas Collection was a Peeping Santa Bubble Bar. This is a gorgeous fruity bergamot and floral geraniu. Which is to be crumbled under warm running water to create bubbles. I used about a quarter of this one and loved the scent. It created so many bubbles and I couldn’t wait to jump in the bath.

Another Bubble Bar I bought was Five Gold Rings. I really liked this one when I saw it in the store although I held it for a couple of minutes and was covered head to toe in glitter. These are a vanilla scent which I usually find quite relaxing. I haven’t tried these yet but I’m assuming you use one at a time in the same way as Peeping Santa.

I can’t figure out the smell of Star Dust. It doesn’t smell very strong but it’s meant to be ‘festive scented’. With LUSH Bath Bombs, do you use the entire thing in one bath or can you break it up and use it in multiple baths? Complete newbie here but £3 seems a lot to spend on one bath!

I had to pick up a Luxury Christmas Pud as I heard Tanya mention it in a couple of her vlogmas videos. This has the strongest scent out of all the ones I purchased. Much stronger than the others in fact but it smells so good. I haven’t used this one yet. I think I’m going to save it for when I really need to relax and wind down.

The last Bath Bomb I picked up is Butterbear, which is so very cute. This is another vanilla scented one and also contains cocoa butter to soften skin.

Lastly I bought a ‘FUN’ to try. I had already had a play around with one of these in the shop so it will be interesting to try out in the bath. I really like that LUSH have everything on display for you to try, smell, play with first. They often do demos of the bath bombs too. I chose the caramel fragrance which is the same scent as a Honey I Washed The Kids soap. I can’t wait to use this one.

After trying and smelling a few of the products I really do know what the fuss is about and I’m already planning my next purchases. I’d like a lip scrub and a face mask (recommendations please). I’m slightly disappointed in myself that it’s taken me this long to try anything!

Can you remember your first ever LUSH purchase? Have you bought anything from the LUSH Christmas range?

    Aaaaaaah sweetie I am SO glad you finally tried Lush.. it is one of my FAVE stores ever.. and I can never not buy anything when I go in! I usually use the bath bombs in one bath.. I think you can break them up though.. but I think that might risk breaking them.. I know they have YouTube videos to show you how to break it properly! Bubble bars are fab .. they last me SO LONG!! I love their face masks so much … The Mask of Magnaminty is FAB! I am sure you will love it!

      I'm so glad I did too! I can't believe it took me so long though. I'll have a look at some of the videos and I've heard great things about the Mask of Magnaminty so I may have to pick this one up with the remainder of my birthday money.

    Love this post babe! So glad you have tried Lush now, I love Lush! You can use a whole bath bomb or cut it up, completely up to you! the more bomb you use in one bath the more colours/glitter will be in the water obviously. I am dissapointed when I use half a bomb as you don't get the full effect! If you want to use half I would recommend actually using a knife to cut them rather than breaking them up xxx (hope you had a lovely birthday) xxx

      I'm so glad I have! I'll probably use the whole one then so I get the full effect, I love the bubble bars though, you can use these over and over again. I had a lovely birthday thank you, looking forward to a catch up at the end of the month.

    You've got some great picks there! You can use the whole bath bomb or break it up, but I think most use the whole thing!! My favourite lush product is the aqua marina cleanser, so soothing and cleansing! X

      I think I did too, I managed to pick up almost one of everything that was in the sale. I'll definitely use the whole thing after reading everyone's comments.

      I live in the middle of nowhere and the local shopping centre isn't usually too busy for the sales which is good. There was a little queue in the store but they had so many of the sale items left.

    You bought so many nice things! My first ever purchase was Snow Fairy – it's still my fave. I bought a few FUN's this year, can't wait to play with them. 🙂

    Welcome to the world of LUSH, prepare to be addicted. You look like you picked up some great bargains too. As for the "whether to drop the whole thing in at once" I tend to buy bubble bars more often than the bombs just because I can break the Comforter for example into maybe 3 or 4 bits and make it last. The bombs I imagine you could but it would be a lot messier and maybe a lot less exciting if it's a colorful all singing and dancing one.

    I'd recommend trying Intergalactic next, and a bubble bar for sure!

      Hehe thank you, I'm sure I already am! I'm pleased with how much this all cost and the bubble bars have been lasting ages. I've seen videos of Intergalactic, it looks amazing!

    I feel you when you say you don't go for the 'hype', I am the same and I can't even tell you why. But if everyone is going crazy about it I just don't want anything or much to do with it (happens with films as well for example) 😀
    And admiringly I bought my first Lush thing in december so you are not alone, and it actually wasn't directly for me but for my boyfriend 😀
    Love,

      I think I purposely go against it, oops. So glad I'm not the only one.

    Love this post!!! Lush is amazing, I have such a growing collection now! My absolute faves are the Rose Jam collection and the million dollar baby moisturiser! The lip scrub in popcorn flavour is fab too 🙂 xxx

    • 20th January 2016 / 12:16 pm

      I've heard about the Rose Jam one, I'll have to have a look when I'm next in store, I'm looking forward to giving some of their Valentines range a try too!

    SO glad I've finally tried it! I think I'm addicted already. That's definitely not weird, that's exactly how I feel, I don't like to actually see myself in the bath, I like lots and lots of bubbles!
