LUSH Holiday Gift Guide

This might only be my second Gift Guide filled to the brim with LUSH products, but I certainly recognize some items from last year and am going to do my best to avoid repeating suggestions.  Since the fun fragrances speak volumes for themselves, I figured it would not make much sense to provide a prologue littered with alliterations when there are so many great things to talk about.  Though I would like to note that the majority of these retail for $20 or under and also send a reminder to readers that there are only twelve shopping days left!

Make bath time a cause for celebration with Golden Wonder, a present shaped Bath Bomb with a bright citrus scent which comes from orange, lime and cognac oils reminiscent of fizzy champagne.  Speaking of which, once this is in the tub it will reveal vibrant gifts that put on a show just for you.

+


Inspired by Japanese bathing traditions, Winter Bath is loaded with spicy ginger and clove bud oils which combine to give your skin a herbal hint of warmth.  Bath melt mix and soya milk have also been added to moisturuize seasonally dry skin so that it is soft and smooth all season.

+


Banish the dreaded Holiday Hangover with Jingle Spells, a restorative potion crafted from juniper berries, fennel, tangerine and ylang ylang oils.  Infused with an enchanting galaxy of gold, silver and black stars that appear as the Bath Bomb dissolves while your tub is tinted a lovely shade of lavender to help you relax.

+


A present to yourself that is chock-full of surprises, Crackersnap can be pulled apart or tossed in the tub to inhale the zesty fragrance of rosewood, lemongrass and bergamot.  As it continues to snap, crackle and pop, you will soon find that it is has been stuffed with treats and can be used for up to three baths.

+


To indulge in a holiday treat without counting calories, crumble Gingerbread House into the bath water to generate delicious cinnamon bubbles.  Ginger root oil and powder create a warming sensation while an uplifting dash of lemon oil helps cleanse and tone your skin.

+


Get the most of your money with this three-in-one bubble bar, and one will not be disappointed in the items stuffed into Santa’s Sack.  Remove the presents to save them for later and then dissolve the sack in the bath, slipping under mounds of spicy bubbles generated by tonka absolute and neroli oil as fresh tagetes oil benefits skin that is dry, sore or cracked.

+


Lather up with lemon, grapefruit and lemongrass oils to refresh your mind, body and soul after a long day of frolicking with Snow Globe.  It will also help keep you calm during moments of festive frenetic energy by way of ylang ylang oil and turquoise color, both of which are going to turn up the relaxation.

+


Though the aromatic properties of Snowcake may seem good enough to eat, this almond icing and marzipan confection is loaded with benzoin and rose absolute.  A slice of this holiday treat generates a rich and creamy lather that will leave skin feeling soft and smooth as a dewy petal.

+


Sweet and fruity, Angel’s Delight is influenced by the English custard of the same name and is just as decadent as the desert.  Saturated with tangerine and orange essence, the colorful chunks suspended in this fresh handmade soap makes it as unique as a snowflake!

+


Marketed as a spectacular seasonal soap that is a brilliant balance of stimulating, refreshing lathers with a hint of luxurious, indulgent sweetness, North Pole offers two different scents and colors for you to choose from.  On the pink side is cocoa absolute  and peppermint, while cedarwood and cypress oils reside in the white.

+

Exfoliate skin for a toned, glowing complexion with Sandy Santa, a Shower Scrub made from sand and sugar.  Orange, rosewood and sandalwood oils blend together for an extra dose of softness while making you smell marvelous!

+

This classic holiday treat is ideal for those with constant candy cravings and adds some fun to your shower with irridescent glitter that disappears when you rinse.  Snow Fairy has been infused with the delicious fragrance of candyfloss and vanilla that will have visions of Summer carnivals dancing in your head.

+


Reap the benefits of your favorite libation on your own skin with Glögg, which has a generous nip of real organic red wine to assist with getting the party started on bleak mornings.  Cinnamon and clove bud have been mixed with a shot of brandy to perk you up, while orange juice cleanses your skin and keeps it glowing.

+


A bewitching brew of delightful ingredients, Potion Lotion is a concoction of cocoa butter and almond oil to nourish skin, while a rose petal infusion makes it incredibly soft.  Tangerine tones and carnation absolute lends a distinctive floral note which can be applied any time of the year.

+


Named for the log-shaped French desert, Bûche de Noël has fresh ingredients for glowing holiday skin.  Scrub away dead skin with ground almonds, cleanse with kaolin clay and then nourish with almond oil and seaweed.  There’s also a splash of brandy and overall you will be able to get rid of winter-induced roughness, leaving skin feeling softer than snow that has freshly fallen.

+


Though the components of Let the Good Times Roll may read more like a recipe for a tasty snack than elements of a fresh facial cleanser, the maize, flour, and polenta with popcorn topping all serve a purpose.  Together they leave your skin clean, smooth and bright while a dash of cinnamon powder invigorates; it is gentle enough to use on your entire body though available for a limited time.

+


Skip the cookies and candies to engorge yourself on Sweet Christmas, one of many LUSH gift sets that have been put together to help customers who may be shopping for someone special and may be unsure of what to get.  The cotton candy scented sweets in this one are the Candy Mountain bubble bar and Rockstar soap, both of which are tasty bath time bonbons that can be enjoyed by everyone.

+


An archetype for Secret Santa gifts, Festive Cheer is said to make unsuspecting friends, neighbors and coworkers smile with sunny, citrus aromas.  It contains the Sandy Santa from the list above as well as Ponche shower gel, suitable for those who favor showers over baths.

+


Make spirits bright no matter what the forecast is with Cool Christmas, the duo of icy fresh soaps sure to put a bit of zing in your morning.  The set contains Snow Globe [see above] and Whoosh, a shower jelly that can be frozen then applied during a steamy shower for a stimulating treat.

+

/
Christmas Party stands out among the other sets because it is contains a pair of treats that can be enjoyed by a party of one [or more].  Party Popper spins around the tub detonating pink and blue color bombs, crackling and popping candy exploding beside dried honeydew flakes, while Northern Lights provides the perfect neon glow.

+

Made from 100% recycled materials, Santa’s Hat can be used to wrap up stocking stuffers and small gifts.  Tie it around your head or face [depending on whether you want to ‘wear’ the hat or beard] for an instant Christmas party costume!  If your locks look less than lustrous first thing in the morning when you are ready to reek havoc on pristine packages and someone is shoving a camera in your sleepy face, this scarf also comes in handy as a funny disguise.
