When it gets to this time of year it is basically obligatory to have a little Lush haul, right!? With the arrival of the Halloween and Christmas collection, I am just all over Lush and need pretty much everything! I’ve already used up my Halloween treats but I did have to return to make a few Christmas collection purchases! At this time of year when the weather is miserable outside all I want is to be inside and all cosy and what better than a few Lush goodies!
If you’ve been around this blog at this time of year before then you may know my love for Lush Snow Fairy. Funnily enough I stocked up so much from last year that my supply has lasted the entire year and I am still using them up! So I definitely didn’t need to pick up another bottle however with the addition of the Body Conditioner to the range, I just had to add a little Snow Fairy to my basket. Like the shower gel, this is a wash off product but a more moisturising version packed with cocoa butter, mango butter and avocado butter. The scent is also much softer and subtler than the shower gel so definitely worth a try if the shower gel is too much for you. It is such a beautiful product, a dreamy scent and texture! I may have to stock up on this one this year…
One of my favourite things to pick up from Lush is a bubble bar. As they can be broken up and used over several baths, they work out much better value for money compared to bath bombs. I picked up two from the Christmas collection this year. The first is the Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar which is obviously inspired by the Wizard of Oz. It had a beautiful floral rosy scent and is just adorable! The last item is such a must have, the Snowie Bubble Bar which plays homage to the late legend David Bowie. I mean come on how could you not want this! As well as being uber cute and a nice little nod to Bowie, it also has an lovely uplifting and refreshing scent from the addition of grapefruit oil. Definitely the (dare I say it) starman of the collection!

Happy New Years Eve everyone! I can’t quite believe that we have reached the final day in 2014. Did that year go super fast or was it just me? Anyway to bring this year to a close I am going to share my favourites from the month.
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette – It was going to make my favourites some time lets be honest, no surprise here. I am a huge fan of the original naked palette but as winter and Christmas began to settle in I found myself in reach of more rose and purple toned shades and this palette just had the perfect selection I was after. Such beautiful shades and amazing pigmentation, I did a full review here with swatches.
Lush Snow Fairy – Little warning, this will probably be in every future December Favourites post. What is Christmas without Snow Fairy? Nothing. This shower gel itself just makes me feel all festive and wintery and has a to die for girly scent of candy-floss and pear drops. Its just lush … (see what I did there!)
Revlon Black Cherry Lipstick – This has probably been my favourite lipstick from the whole of Autumn/Winter. I heard so many rave reviews regarding this product and had to pick it up. I was a little weary about it at first thinking it would be too dark however paired with my Benefit tinted balm its the perfect dark berry shade for this season. Also, the formula for this lipstick is incredible, smooth and glossy.. I need more Revlon lipsticks!
Lush Santa Lip Scrub – I’ve always been a fan of the Lush lip scrub, they really are fab products and make my lips feel super. I picked up the special festive edition this year and oh my it beats my bubblegum lip scrub by a mile! This cherry cola flavoured scrub makes my lips oh so soft and it tastes amazing!
The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Burst Sorbet – Now thats an incredible name… for an even better product! I put my hands up and admit I have became a bit of a Body Shop addict this year and this product is one of my favourites from them. Its such a hydrating and cooling moisturiser which makes my skin feel so incredibly smooth and soft. Its dreamy, just buy it!
What is your favourite products this month?
I would like to wish all my lovely followers a very Happy New Year and I hope 2015 is a fab year for you all. Thank you ❤
I will be very surprised if you haven’t seen a ‘Lush’ related blog post recently, my reader is full of them and there is no shock really considering its that time of year again.. Lush have just realised their Christmas goodies into stores and myself like most people got a little excited!
Cupcake Face Mask – Well this is slightly off topic since the first product I bought has no Christmas relevance and is just a regular Lush product that is sold all year round. Its the amazingly smelling chocolaty Cupcake face mask. I have heard so many amazing reviews on this product recently and being a little more skin conscious I really wanted to try a good face mask. The cupcake face mask is meant to help skin that is prone to breakouts and spots so basically its very suited to my skin. This mask was £6.50 (I think) and you have to store it in the fridge to keep it fresh. Can’t wait to use this one! 🙂
Santa’s Lip Scrub – Now we can get a little more festive.. despite it only being October. I am a huge fan of the Lush lip scrubs, I already own the bubblegum one and it makes my lips perfect by getting rid of all the dry patches. As part of the Christmas collection, Lush have realised the cola flavored red lip scrub which smells absolutely amazing! If you have never tried their lip scrubs it is so worth the buy, they retail at £5.50 but they last for ages and taste amazing (yes they are EDIBLE!)
Snow Fairy Shower Gel – I saved the best til last! If you have never tried Snow Fairy you are missing out big time! This is my favorite Lush product ever (quite the statement!), it has a bubblegum scent which is to die for. Its also a lovely bubblegum pink shade and has a lovely shimmer to it. I really could sit and smell the contents of the bottle all day if I could! Its £3.95 for a 100g bottle, just buy it!
