A LUSH Christmas Collection

Hohoho.... I hope it's not too early to share and spread the Christmas joys (right???). Last week, popped by the Suntec City LUSH store and check out their 2013 Christmas Collection . The collection is  available now and I (you/we) can start our christmas shopping at LUSH (Maybe?)


At LUSH Christmas never ends! They put a great deal of effort, along with a little LUSH magic, into their seasonal ranges, as they want to keep us (the customers) happy.



This year’s range sees some exciting new developments worth celebrating – the replacement of plastic glitter with agar jelly stars and shapes and edible lustres, and they are working towards removing preservatives completely.

Their two new luxurious limited edition hand and body lotions are 100% unpreserved, (a patent applied for innovation) as are most of their other products. The festive range also contains some of their all year-round popular fragrances, so if you fall in love with a Christmas product you will still be able to enjoy something similar for the rest of the year.


I super dig the Festive deco... all the wrapped up boxes of presents look so Christmas-y!!!   







 
Here's the rundown of LUSH Christmas collection / New releases



Bath Ballistics
Price : SD$8.50 each

Invented by Mo Constantine OBE in 1987. The Bath Ballistic is often imitated, but none compare to the original. Each one is formulated with the finest ingredients and essential oils to cleanse both the mind and body. This Christmas, instead of glitter we have added popping candy, edible lustres and agar jelly stars and shapes for spectacular bathing. Simply drop into a ready run, warm bath and watch as it fizzes around the tub with abandonment, emitting its goodness into the water.



*NEW*
Bombardino ... Alpine Indulgence
Price : SD$8.50 (each)

Bombardino shares its name with a drink enjoyed in the Italian Alps and smells of rich lemon cheesecake. We’ve added cocoa butter to soften the skin; whilst Sicilian lemon oil and Fair Trade vanilla absolute (the first Fair Trade absolute in the world!) give your bath a sweet and delicious fragrance.






*NEW*
Lord of Misrule… Strange & Magnificent 
Price : SD$11 (each)

Featuring Fair Trade vanilla absolute, the world’s first Fair Trade absolute, mixed with spicy black pepper oil and soothing patchouli. Allow this ballistic to slowly dissolve in your bath to reveal a wine coloured centre.

The crown shape around the ballistic is the party hat that the tradition of the Lord of Misrule inspired centuries ago. Popping candy represents the party atmosphere that he would have created during his rule over a period of winter merriment.



*NEW*
Luxury Lush Pud… Calorie Free Comfort
Price : SD$11 (each) 

For a soothing and calming bath, this year Lush Pud has gone all luxury with colourful polka dots that float to the surface making pastel islands in the water. A relaxing bath treat made with the comforting lavender and ylang ylang scent of Twilight – perfect for a bath before bedtime.

Secret Santa  … Cheeky Santa Surprise
Price : SD$19 (each) 

Modelled on the original LUSH shop, 29 High Street in Poole, this double-layered ballistic is scented with soothing sandalwood, zesty lime and beautiful floral oils to emulate the iconic fragrance of our shops.

Father Christmas ($10.50) … Ho, Ho, Ho!
Price : SD$10.50

Bubble Bars

Invented by Helen Ambrosen in 1998, bubble bars are a solid alternative to bubble bath that are unpreserved and packaging free. Using a simple base of tartar and sodium bicarbonate, all sorts of essential oils and fresh ingredients are added to create the solid bubble bar slices we know and love.

Let the Good Times Roll cleansing roll … Scrubs and Softens
Price : SD$25 for 100g

An exfoliating cleanser for the face and body, to softly scrub dry winter skin and moisturise at the same time. Delicately cleansing maize flour, polenta and corn oil are all gently absorbent and can help to even out skin tone. Talc enables the cleanser to glide easily over the skin, while glycerine acts as a humectant keeping the skin expertly nourished and moisturised, which means this one is especially good for dry skin (a common complaint during the winter months). Crushed popcorn garnishes this rolled cleanser. Skin will be left softened, soothed and ever so slightly warmed by the cinnamon powder, which can help with circulation. (Vegan)




Bûche de Noël cleansing roll  … Gentle and Nourishing
Price : SD$25 for 100g

This cleansing roll is food for your face, containing lots of softening and nourishing ingredients to care for any skin type during the winter months.

Helps lock in moisture and keep skin soft against the cold. Wrapped in a sheet of nori seaweed, it resembles a festive Yule Log. (Vegan)

LUSH Fresh facemasks are made daily by hand, with fresh natural ingredients. They contain no preservatives and are made with whole fruits and vegetables and the finest essential oils. They are so fresh they have to be kept in the fridge and used within 3 weeks!

Cold weather and central heating can cause skin to dry out, so using facemasks is a good way to replenish moisture and get vitamins and nutrients directly onto your face. Inventor and co-Founder Helen Ambrosen comments: “They will deliver fresh ingredients directly onto the skin to work their magic, giving you an effective way to naturally protect against aging. Facemasks containing clays such as kaolin will help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.” So great to use before the Christmas party for a temporary natural lift!




NEW 
Rudolph fresh facemask … soothes red noses.
