I look forward to many things in the holiday season, like decorating and eating frosted sugar cookies and the amazing scent of a real pine tree inside the house. Also on my list every year? The fabulous limited edition Lush holiday treats! Here are some favorites that Lush sent us. They make fantastic gifts and each one always puts me right into the holiday spirit.
How could the Star Light Star Bright Luxury Bath Melt ($6.95) be more holiday perfect? It makes for an extremely festive bath, so definitely be prepared for a sparkly version of yourself afterward. Star Light Star Bright is mega-moisturizing with organic shea butter and extra virgin coconut oil, and it smells clean and happy with notes of ginger and lime. The shea butter is magical for dry skin and makes bath water silky and creamy. There is a hidden treat inside that I won’t spoil for you, but it does turn bath water blue shot through with silver glitter.
The Golden Wonder Bath Bomb (6.95) is one of Lush’s most beautiful bath bombs. It looks just like a perfectly wrapped gift begging to be opened. The sweet orange, lime, and cognac oils in it soften skin, and there is a special surprise inside – a little gift just for you! This is a perfect treat for a special bath on Christmas Day.
A wonderful pre-wrapped gift is the Rosy Christmas ($16.95) duo. Already ensconced in pretty paper, it’s totally gift-ready and with two great bath products – Rose Jam Shower Gel and Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner. Rose Jam Shower Gel is limited edition and I am not sure why, since I would buy this any month of the year. It smells amazing, sort of like strawberry jam tempered with lemon, a truly gorgeous scent that has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner is a wonderful mixture of cocoa butter, cupuacu butter, almond oil and Argan oils. It’s meant to do for your body what conditioner does for your hair. This is slathered on then rinsed off in the shower, and it makes skin ultra smooth and baby soft. It is particularly great for leg shaving day!
The perfect stocking stuffer or Secret Santa gift is the limited edition Santa Baby Lip Tint ($8.95). The little tin is darling, and the red tint makes lips mistletoe ready. This is a blue-toned red, and WOW is it pigmented! It’s not like a lip balm. Santa Baby Lip Tint is so pigmented that a tiny amount is all that is needed for a party-perfect pucker. Plus it tastes like a cherry Coke.
There are many more fabulous limited edition lovelies available at Lush, and they don’t last long. Make sure a trip to your local Lush store – or the online store – is on your to-do list for the holidays! – Lisa
