The Lush Boxing Day Bargains


Okay so admittedly this post is very late. However, I actually didn't receive this order until a few days ago due to stock issues on the Lush website. Unfortunately what happened was that there happened to be more orders processed than there was stock so in order to full fill all orders processed Lush had to make more! I saw a lot of people on twitter being very angry about this but unfortunately its just one of those things that happen and I'm just really happy I eventually got my products!

As Snow Fairy has always been one of my favourite scents I picked up two of the Bubble Wands which I have found to last for around 5 or 6 baths and create sweet smelling bubbles aplenty so considering these were under £3 not bad value for money at all! I also got the Snow White Bath Bomb as I've always loved the subtle apple scent and the amount of fizz it produces. I can't even remember what colour this turns my bath but I have a feeling it could be pink? Next I got a little Melting Snowman as I wanted something to soften my skin and this little fella does a wonderful job!

Since I already got plenty of Snow Fairy shower gel for Christmas I decided to try the Hot Toddy one instead. This is very intense and smells really spicy and intriguing! I also love how it has gold glitter in it...very festive! The Up in the Clouds bubble bar is something I bought on the website because I liked the look of it but now I have it I just can't seem to get on with the scent at all! It just smells too artificial and gives me a sore head. Just not to my taste but I'll maybe give it to someone else who can get some good use out of it. An old favourite which I just couldn't not pick up was the Cinders bath bomb, purely because its always the bath bomb I use on Christmas Eve so the smell brings back lots of lovely memories for me.

Speaking of Christmas Eve I actually managed to pick up one of the Christmas Eve bubble bars which I'm super excited to use. As far as I can tell it doesn't seem to have all that much of a scent, but rather a subtle relaxing hint of a smell like being in a spa or something! I can't wait to see if this turns my bath water a different colour and how much bubbles it creates! I also got the Shooting Star bath which looks super pretty although again I'm not overly keen on the smell. I think this one turns bath water pink so I'll be interested to watch this one fizz its way to non existence on my next pamper date!

To finish off my haul I picked up one of the gift boxes and this one is called Festive Friends. Inside it contains a Butter Bear bath melt (the head was broken off of mine unfortunately), a Dashing Santa Bath Ballistic, The Christmas Penguin Bubble Bar, and my favourite in the box which is the Hedgehog bubble bar. I like the smell of everything in this little box and I think the products are all very novelty and cute so it was definitely worth getting it for 50% off in the sale.

So that's everything that I bought from Lush in the boxing day sales and it looks like I have enough products to keep me going until April! I just can't wait to start using some of these!

Did any of you manage to get to the Lush sales? Did you pick much up?

  3. It's nice that they actually made more - so many places would have just cancelled the excess orders and left people with refunds!
