A few weeks ago I attended the LUSH holiday event at the Eaton Center where I had the chance to meet some of the fabulous people who create the delicious bath goodies we have come to know and love. I even got my hands a bit dirty and made my own bath bomb which was a lot of fun!
This holiday LUSH has a fabulous selection of products to help make gift giving simple and delicious! From pre-packaged gift sets and festive bath bombs to rich face masks and moisturizers there is something for everyone on your list.
You can also make your own LUSH junkie gift basket!
The great thing about this brand is that they use natural ingredients like fresh fruit, luxurious butters and exotic smelling oils which is ideal for those sensitive to chemicals. Making these creative concoctions is actually a fun process and the creators at LUSH are passionate about their safe, handmade, cruelty-free products.
At the face mask station I saw how natural ingredients like fresh fennel, tofu and juicy cranberries were blended to make the Festive Face Mask which can be kept in the fridge and used to help revive the skin. This rich mask is packed with antioxidants, vitamins and nourishing oils to boost your complexion and it smells good enough to eat!
As far as body products go there are many yummy treats to choose from! The Magic of Christmas soap and shampoo is a mouldable mound of glittery goodness that feels like play dough and looks like an enormous piece of candy! You can unleash your inner artist by creating cute little Christmas figurines and gifting them to family and friends or have fun in the tub playing with them yourself! If you have kids these colorful soaps will make bath time more enjoyable and you can simply pinch off a piece and crumble under running water or lather in your hands. It also comes in Alien & Monsters (pink, purple & green) and each color has a unique scent.
The shower and body scrubs are a great way to exfoliate from head-to-toe for soft, supple skin. Natural sea salt crystals buff away dead cells for a smooth finish and the lavender colored bar (Rub Rub Rub) is scented with a delicate blend of jasmine, mimosa and orange. The orange scrub called- The Rough with the Smooth has a luscious blend of black pepper, patchouli, murumuru butter, sugar and vanilla to eradicate rough patches and fragrance the body. The bars last a long time and also help stimulate circulation! They retail for $9.95 each.
If you don’t know what to choose you can always get a chunk of soap in your favorite scent or stick with classics like Sex Bomb or The Comforter Bath Bubble Bar ($11.95) which is also available as a delectable body gel ($9.95-$28.95).
There are also glitter stars and cute little Santa soaps!
Another bestseller is the Face of Grace Moisturizer ($15.95) which is a solid serum free of preservatives and packed with hydrating tropical butters, chamomile and antioxidant mushroom extract. The bar melts as you massage it in and instantly nourishes dry skin which is much needed during the winter. Although the aroma is a tad strong I like the sweet botanical fragrance and it makes my face feel super soft and silky for hours.
The Christmas Kisses Lip Gift Set is already wrapped in pretty red paper and contains Santa’s Sugary Scrub which is made with delicious sugar, cherry extract, jojoba, coconut milk, lime and other natural ingredients. You simply rub it onto the lips and it gets rid of dry, chapped peeling skin to help smooth and lightly moisturize for a sweet, polished pout. The pretty pink scrub has a scrumptious cola flavor and you can lick off the excess granules after your treatment which is totally yummy!
The Santa Baby Lip Tint will keep your pout kissably soft and as rosy as Rudolph’s nose this holiday! Infused with butters and oils it provides hydration and a red stain that lasts for hours! You can also use it under your favorite lipstick as a base or primer. This cute set retails for $19.95.
