LUSH Christmas 2011 Overview

A few weeks ago, we got the opportunity to preview the LUSH Christmas Collection and to give you a sneak peek for a limited time at what to expect for the coming festive season.

Now that the collection is available to buy, the sneak peek is back up so you can all start planning your stocking-fillers and making present requests as soon as possible. Enjoy!

Boy, do we have a treat for you today, a sneak peek of what you can expect from LUSH Cosmetics this coming Christmas! This year's festive collection is positively ginormous, so start saving now!

There are 31 different gift boxes (ranging from €6.95 to €125), a new lip scrub and 3 new lip tints, 4 new additions to the Lush Christmas Candy Shop as well as the return of 3 longtime favourites (Yes, yes, Snow Fairy is back!), 9 brand new and innovative Christmas-themed products rest alongside of 8 of the brand's Christmas Classics while 7 products, developed with the Christmas traditions of some of LUSH's worldwide locations in mind, round out the collection (And a partridge in a pear tree!).

We went along to the press preview today and came away with 7 gift boxes as well as an assortment of Christmassy single items. We also came away from the preview entirely in the festive spirit, despite it only being September!

So, that's everything I got to try out! Dee got the same so, expect lots of reviews over the coming weeks. If there is anything you would particularly like to see reviewed, let us know in the comments! All products in the gift boxes are available separately as far as I know so, you can mix n'match to your heart's content!

EDIT: Dee here. We realised today that the two big boxes I got are different to Sinéad's, so I'm going to show you them!


 Home for Christmas - A keepsake box filled with cosy, comforting vanilla and honey treats. Contains Honey Bee Bath Ballistic, Gingerbread House Bubble Bar, Li'l Lush Pud Bath Ballistic, 100g Honey I Washed the Kids Soap, Three Gold Rings Bubble Bar, It's Raining Men Shower Gel and Vanilla Dee-Lite Body Moisturiser (both 100g).

Christmas Star: Give yourself a gold star (full of bathtime fun) for being so good this year. Contains Superstars Bubble Bar, Candy Mountain Bubble Bar, Li'l Lush Pud Bath Ballistic, The Melting Snowman Luxury Bath Melt, Cinders Bath Ballistic & So White Bath Ballistic.

So, which box is your favourite? 

P.S. A lovely reader waved at us and said hello while we were going through the products and we looked for her afterwards to say hi but, you'd gone! We'd love to know who it was!
