Event: Lush South Africa Christmas Preview 2015

Hi everyone,

It's that time of the year when Lush South Africa releases a bunch of amazing products, some old and some brand spanking new. My favourite Lush collection is definitely Christmas because uh...
1) Rose Jam shower gel
2) Cinders and Shoot for The Stars bath bomb
3) Cute gift sets

This years Lush South Africa Christmas Preview was held at the beautiful Mount Nelson Hotel on the main lawn. It was a beautiful day, the sun was out, skies were blue and a lovely breeze kept us cool while we were oohing and aahing over the Christmas collection.

I'm glad that some old time favourites from last year are back this year. Lush also welcomed some new products which I'm really excited to try.

For bath bombs, Lush released two new bath bombs called Stardust and Yog Nog. Stardust is an all white bath bomb shaped in a star and has a lovely sent of sweet vanilla. Don't let this bath bomb fool you though. It filled with a colourful surprised :) Yog Nog has the same scent as Yog Nog soap however, for me, the scent is a bit more subtle compared to the actual soap, which I like. Lush describes Yog Nog as a luxurious ballistic that fizzes and froths away into meringue like clouds. They brought back some recurring favourites like Shoot For The Stars and Golden Wonder and a few others.

For bubble bars, Lush released a variety of bubble bars to suit everyone's scent preference. Bar Humbug is a pretty looking bubble bar with its deep purple colour and silver lustre. It's is supposed to smell like liquorice but it's not the typical black liquorice scent. It's a lovely subtle scent. Five Gold Rings is a re-usable bubble bar that you swish in the bath to make mountains of pretty bubbles lined with vibrant gold lustres. It smells of vanilla and tonka. Another re-usable bubble bar is The Magic Of Christmas that shares the same scent as my favourite bath bomb, Cinders. I abosultely love the way this bubble bar is designed. Peeping Santa is an adorable looking bubble bar that shares the same scent as Strawberry Feels massage bar.
For soap, shower gels / cream, FUN and shower jellies, Lush released only one new soap called Old Father Time. It has a very earthy / herb scent to it so I'm not the biggest fan of it. Lord of Misrule is actually part of the Halloween collection but I'm really glad that Lush South Africa added it to our Christmas collection. Lord of Misrule has a sweet and spicy scent to it. It's a thick creamy formula which creates a really nice lather. Santa's Belly is a vibrant red colour shower jelly filled with stars and smells like green apples. FUN is such an underrated Lush product and this year Lush brought back my favourite Snowman FUN that has the same scent as the Carrot soap from Easter and there are a few new FUNs as well like Santa and Magic Of Christmas. Roxanne from Rox Starr Diaries and I created a little Santa at the event from the Santa FUN and he looks adorable with his big belly.

For face and body products
, Lush brought back Santa's lip scrub and Santa Baby lip tint and not forgetting my favourite lotion, Celebrate. Lush introduced Christingle which is a fresh minty scented body conditioner that makes you feel all tingly and fresh! Fairy Dust dusting powder is a brand new dusting powder that is a light shade of pink and has silver lustres and it shares the same scent as Snow Fairy shower gel. This year Lush included a shower smoothie called Icing On The Cake, I haven't had a chance to play around with it but I know it shares the same scent with Ponche shower gel (which smells amazing btw). Salt And Peppermint Bark is a sea salt based scrub that's packed with peppermint oil and it smells so freaking good. If I could compare it to something it would be to a traditional minty candy cane.
A big thank you to the lovely Tanya and the Lushies for a whimsical afternoon in the garden ♡
