Lush Christmas 2016 | Gift Guide

Lush Christmas 2016
Yup, it's that time of the year again! The Lush Christmas collection is here! With a plethora of old favorites and new creations, your bath tub is bound to be bubbling up with some yummy goodness this holiday season. Today I have a selection of some key players from this year's lineup, so to read all about them, click......
Lush Christmas 2016
Lush Rose Jam & Salt and Peppermint Bark
Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel ($9.95 CAD for 100ml):
A classic holiday scent from Lush, Rose Jam is back again this year in its ever-beloved shower gel formulation. Bursting with a mouthwatering accord of rose, lemon, and vanilla, the shower gel is infused with argan oil for a cleansing yet conditioning wash.

Salt and Peppermint Bark ($9.95 CAD for 100ml):
Released last year, the Salt and Peppermint Bark is a body scrub bar made with sea salt, cocoa butter, and peppermint oil. I fell in love with the potent but nourishing formulation that worked wonders on dull and dry winter skin last year. Unfortunately, I have noticed a slight formulation change this year (or possibly just a manufacturing variance). The bar is a lot of abrasive and if you scrub it directly onto the body, you may actually get red scratch marks (very much like the atrocious Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub Bar I reviewed earlier this year). It seems with these scrub bars there is a fine balance between potently scrubby or painfully abrasive and Lush doesn't seem to have found the fine line just yet...
Lush Christmas 2016
Lush Ruby Red Slippers and Shoot for the Stars

Shoot for the Stars Bath Bomb ($6.95 CAD):
Yay for a new bath bomb for Christmas 2016! Shoot for the Stars is a beautiful citrus-scented bomb that will turn your bath water a dazzling shade of blue, dusted with just a hint of shimmers. The bath bomb is embedded with beautiful gold stars for a very whimsical and festive design.

Sparkling Red Slippers Bubble Bar ($7.45 CAD):
Another new addition to the Lush Christmas family, Sparkling Red Slippers is a high heel shaped bubble bar covered with shiny flecks of red sparkles. The product is infused with rose absolute, tangerine oil, and carnation absolute for a beautiful floral fragrance. To use, simply crumble chunks of the bar under hot running water. You can use as little or as much as you want to attain just the right amount of bubbles for your personal preference!
Lush Christmas 2016
Lush Snow Fairy Fun
Lush Snowy Fairy Fun ($7.95 CAD):
Last but certainly not least is this adorable "bubble clay" in my favorite Lush scent (aka the Snow Fairy). Packaged in a biodegradable wrapper, Fun is a moldable clay that melts and bubbles when it comes in contact with water. The Snow Fairy scent smells like pink bubblegum and sweet vanilla- so irresistible and so addictive! The Snow Fairy Fun comes with three colors and a set of paper wings and a fairy wand. Before you use it for your bath, you have to first find your inner kid and build a snow fairy. Below is my creation. I am not even embarrassed about how much fun I had making her!
