I’m sorry to bring up the festive season already – it’s still 140 sleeps until Christmas after all – but I met up with the lovely people at LUSH last week for a sneak preview of what they have in store for Christmas and I wanted to share with you as soon as possible.
Let’s start with Buche de Noel Cleansing Roll… I’ve had my nose stuck in the pot since I was given it, as it smells amazing. It contains ground almonds to gently exfoliate the skin, dried cranberries and fresh satsumas to tone and brighten, nutritious almonds to soften, and cocoa butter to act as am emollient. It quite simply smells like Christmas, and it’s great for skin too as it locks in moisture.
Rose Jam is a new, limited edition shower gel with the sweetest scent of rose. If I’m honest, it’s a little too sweet for my tastes, but my sister grabbed the bottle out of my hands in two seconds flat – so if you prefer sweet fragrances, this one is for you. It also contains notes of lemon to boost alertness, so is perfect for early morning showers when the weather starts to cool.
Santa’s Lip Scrub smells of cola sweets and leaves lips feeling kissably smooth! I found the bright red hue a bit off-putting, but the delicious fragrance convinced me to try it. You simply rub the lip scrub over dry lips to remove dead skin (it doesn’t mark lips at all). After washing from lips (or licking – it’s edible!), you can apply your lipstick or lipgloss to a perfectly smooth base.
Finally, Santa Baby Lip Tint is a classic red, tinted moisturiser for lips. It contains lashings of Fair Trade butters to soften and nourishing carrot oil to care for the lips, plus extracts of cherries and dates to give a sweet hint of festive flavour, and cinnamon stick to plump your pout!
LUSH Christmas Collection will be available at LUSH stores across UAE from October 2013.
