What is better than the holidays? The holiday line from Lush of course! This year’s Christmas line is absolutely fantastic and I was thrilled to test out a few of their top sellers. I received a Santasaurus bubble bar, a Northern Lights bath bomb, a Christmas Penguin bubble bar, Christingle body conditioner, and Fairy Dust sparkling dusting powder. It was nearly impossible to stop myself from using them all at once! Lush always makes such fantastic and high-quality products so I knew these would be no exception.
The Santasaurus Bubble Bar was by far my daughter’s favorite. This bar is shaped like an adorable little T-Rex dinosaur wearing a festive santa hat. Not only is this bar easy to use, but it is super kid-friendly and smells fantastic! It had a sweet honey smell that wasn’t too overpowering, but lingered on our skin. I only needed to run this bar under the water for a few seconds and I was able to get a good amount of bubbles. I believe if I would’ve left it a bit longer, I would’ve been able to fill the entire tub. Since it is reusable, I was able to put it aside and let it dry out until we are ready to use it again. My daughter asked me to order more of these festive little guys.
I have always been a sucker for bath bombs, so I was extremely excited about trying out this Northern Lights bomb. Although this particular bomb has been out for a while, I was never able to get my hands on it. The smell of this bomb was a delicate floral scent and I could definitely pick out a strong hint of jasmine. When I first dropped it in my bathtub, beautiful hues of blues, purples, and yellows quickly took over. I tried to take a photo of the bomb in action, but my picture does it no justice. Once the bomb was finished, my bath water turned a pretty purple color. Most bath bombs from Lush leave my skin silky smooth after soaking, and this was no exception. I am extremely excited that I was finally able to test this out!
The Christmas Penguin bubble bar is super festive and I really love how much detail went into making it. The smell was a fantastic uplifting clean scent which lasted my entire bath. I was very surprised to find that this bubble bar turned the water a pretty shade of blue, which was a nice added touch. I love how with this bubble bar (compared to the Santasaurus) I was able to take however much I needed and set the rest aside. There was no need for it to dry out or overuse. I also found that this bubble bar was EXTREMELY moisturizing and didn’t leave any oily residue.
I have tried numerous Lush body conditioners before, but this Christingle conditioner has topped the list! The peppermint and menthol crystal in this body conditioner offered a cool tingling sensation while the jojoba oil, murumuru and shea butters did a fantastic job of nourishing my skin. I normally use body conditioner on my trouble areas (ankles, knees and elbows), but I loved this Christingle conditioner so much that I applied it everywhere! The cool feeling mixed with my warm shower was absolutely amazing! I don’t suggest using this for nighttime showers because it definitely has a bright peppermint scent which is great for waking me up in the mornings! Also, a little goes a long way! I didn’t need much to cover my entire body which means this tub will last me for quite some time!
I will be honest, I was a little nervous about testing out this fairy dust dusting powder. I am not usually a fan of glitter and I have such a hard time getting it off of my skin. Much to my surprise, this was not an overwhelming dusting powder. The smell was very sweet and almost smelled like candy! The glitter was very subtle and didn’t make me look like a disco ball! After my shower I just sprinkle a little onto my arms, shoulders, and chest for a nice subtle look. I was also extremely impressed with how easily this glitter was removed. Instead of having to scrub my skin, I was able to wipe the glitter off with a warm washcloth! Super excited that I tried this since this is something I would normally never pick up!
