Lush Haul Part Two - Bubble Bars & Shower Stuff

If you have seen my blog post from earlier in the week then you will know I went a little bit spend-happy on Lush's Christmas collection, so to try and justify the excessive amount I have brought I have decided to share with you the all of the lovely things that I have picked up! I showed all of the Bubble Bars in my post earlier in the week, so if you missed it you can check it out here, but today I am going to showing everything else I picked up, and there's quite a bit!

Candy Mountain Bubble Bar - £2.95

Candy Mountain is a Lush Christmas classic which I had to pick up as I have lusted after it year after year. It has the cult favourite Snow Fairy Scent, which to me smells like a mixture between Bubblegum fizzy bottle and Love Heart sweets, so in other words, like pure sugar - which I love! The idea with the Bubble Bars is that you crumble some (or the whole thing) under water ad it creates beautiful fragrant bubbles in your bath, I mean, who wouldn't love that! 

Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar - £5.95

The Magic Wand Reusable Bubble Bar is basically the same product as the Candy Mountain Bubble Bar in that they have the same scent and both produce bubbles in the bath with he only difference is that with the Magic Wand is that you get a lot more product and it comes on a stick so you can swish it in your bath, so you can get a ton of uses out of one wand. Magic Wand bubble bar also has a stronger fragrance in comparison to Candy Mountain, which I'm pleased about as hopefully the scent won't disappear as you use it. I also love the concept and design as they are covered in glitter and is like a little fairy wand, I like that Lush have added the little-added touch of the silver ribbon and bell, so it would make a lovey gift for someone.

The Magic of Christmas Reusable Bubble Bar - £5.95

This is probably my favourie product out of their entire Christmas range as it is definitely the most festive out of them all! It is fragranced with Almond, Sweet Orange oil, and Cinnamon and decorated with Star Anise in the center with cloves around the outside and covered in a ton of gold glitter! I also love that it is on a cinnamon stick instead of the usual plain lolly-like stick as it just makes it all the more festive, not even mentioning the red ribbon and little bell. If this doesn't scream Christmas, I don't know what does! 

Snow Angel Bath Melt - £4.25

This one is something different to all the other items I have picked up or even tried before as it is one of their bath melts. The idea with the Bath Melts is that you pop them into the bath and they melt into the water, so they leave your skin soft and moisturised as they are made with ingredients that are nourishing for the skin. Snow Angel is made with Fairtrade Cocoa Butter and has a gorgeous Marzipan scent which I am a big fan of as I love marzipan. Overall it just has a lovely creamy, sweet scent that will be perfect for a relaxing bath. I also think it will look very pretty when it dissolves in the water as the back of then melt is covered in gold glitter, which I can imagine will look beautiful swirling in the water - although I not sure what my bath will look like after I've used it, but it will be worth it.

Snow Fairy Shower Gel (250g) - £7.95

No Lush haul would be complete without the obligatory bottle of Snow Fairy shower gel, so naturally, I had to pick one up. It has the same super sweet fragrance as all the other products in the Snow Fairy range except it has been intensified x100, so when smelling out of the bottle it's pretty pungent, but when you use it in the shower the intensity dulls down quite a bit, so don't let the first sniff put you off! It is quite pricey for a shower gel at £7.95 for your average size bottle, however, a little goes a very long way as only the small amount produces a lot of lather! I will definitely be picking this up again next year when it undoubtedly returns for the festive season as it is simply amazing - it has blue iridescent shimmer in it!

Snow Fairy Body Conditioner (225g) - £13.95

This product is genius! The concept of this product is that it is a body moisturiser that you use I while you're still in the shower. You basically just wash yourself like normal using a shower gel (The Snow Fairy shower gel is a pretty good shout) and rinse, then take a dollop of the body conditioner, rub it all over your body and then rinse it off. Like the shower gel, I used this product for the first tie yesterday and it is amazing; it left my skin feeling super soft and hydrated yet not greasy. I also love that I don't have to wait for it to dry before getting dressed which is something you have to do with a normal moisturiser, so it's perfect if your in a ruch and a little short on time. The only thing I dislike about this product is that it is limited edtion, so I'm definately going to have to see if they do any all year body conditioners as amazing as this one!

Yog Log Roulade (100g) - £5.95

I was really disappointed when I discovered that Yog Nog Bath Bomb wasn't making a return this year as I went in store last year and smelt it, and absolutely loved it! but didn't pick one up, so I was really looking forward to trying out this year but unfortunately the bath bomb didn't make a return, however, the scent has in the form of a Roulade Shower smoothie, Yog Log. The Roulade shower smoothies, from what I understand are a hybrid product combing a body wash and there shower body conditioner - you basically just tear a piece off and wash with it. It is made with Cocos Butter so I have a feeling it will be amazingly nourishing for the skin. It also has the same gorgeous caramel scent that Yog Nog had so you can still get your caramel-scented fix!

Lush have actually removed all the Christmas products off of their website, however, they are still available in store and will be popping back up online for their boxing day sale so I would recommend checking the website or social media regularly because things sell out pretty quickly as the deals they offer are amazing!  I'd suggest you snap some (or all!) of there Christmas range up before it is gone for another year as it is brilliant!

Are there any products that you want to pick up from Lush's Christmas collection still? or hoping to nab in the boxing day sale?
