Huge Christmas Lush Haul | 2016

Love, Catherine | Huge Christmas Lush Haul 2016

So I arrived back home after sunning it up in the heat on holiday for a week, and what did I buy online the minute I got back? A coat, a beauty advent calendar and the Lush Christmas products. If that doesn't scream Autumn then not much else will. Yep, we're officially into the colder months and I am so ready for all of the cosy nights and Lush-filled warm bubble baths. Clearly the five year old in me was just too excited for the festive items to be back and I had to make a little purchase.

Christmas Lush Haul 2016 | Magic Wand & The Magic Of Christmas Bubble Bar

Magic Wand | Reusable Bubble Bar

If I had to recommend one product you get from Lush this year it would be the Magic Wand, even if it's the only item you splurge on! Give it a little swish under your running bath water and it transforms your bath into sweet candy scented pink bubble heaven. And as it's reusable you do get a fair few uses out of it, mine usually lasts for about four baths, which is well worth the money. 

The Magic Of Christmas | Reusable Bubble Bar

The only thing that comes to mind with this one is 'Christmas'. It has a warm cinnamon and mulled wine scent which basically smells like all of the Christmas festivities rolled into one cute sparkly star. It reminds me of the Christmas markets! How many times can I say Christmas in this description? Christmas.

Christmas Lush Haul 2016 | So White Bath Bomb
So White | Bath Bomb

A play on Snow White, the So White bath bomb is the fairest of them all. It's a gorgeous fresh scent like Yankee Candle Clean Cotton with a crisp green apple kick to it. I wish they'd release it as a permanent item as it's not a specifically Christmas scent and is one of those perfect all year round fragrances! Despite it's snowy appearance it turns the bath a fresh green shade as opposed to the rosy pink it used to be.

Northern Lights | Bath Bomb

I was a little overexcited to see this bath bomb back on the shelves this year. I'd purchased it a couple of years ago and l.o.v.e.d it, yet it didn't seem to make an appearance in last years Winter collection. The scent is very clean and floral with extracts of Jasmine and Ylang Ylang, but the best part of this one is the amazing colours it turns the water. When you pop it into the bath it fizzes to reveal swirls of lilac, blue and yellow which look so vibrant and pretty. Definitely give this one a try if you love colourful baths.

Christmas Lush Haul 2016 | Snowcastle Soap
Snowcastle | Soap

Disappointed was an understatement when my Snowcastle soap arrived, and it well..wasn't shaped like an actual castle. Not quite the princessy vibes I'd hoped for but hey, at least I got some shimmer. The soap itself has a lovely creamy marzipan scent which I think smells really similar to the Snow Angel bath melt!

Christmas Lush Haul 2016 | Candy Mountain Bubble Bar
Candy Mountain | Bubble Bar

You just can't make a huge Christmas Lush order and not include Candy Mountain, it's like the rules of Christmas Lush buying. It has that same super sweet Snow Fairy fragrance and as you crumble it under warm running water it leaves the bath with clouds of shimmery pink bubbles and a dreamy candy floss scent.

Christmas Lush Haul 2016 | Star Dust Bath Bomb
Star Dust | Bath Bomb

I think this one has had a little revamp since last year and it apparently turns the water an uplifting sky blue and releases lots of cute little sparkly stars! It has a lovely creamy vanilla scent, similar to the Butterball.

Christmas Lush Haul 2016 | Mistletoe Bath Bomb
Mistletoe | Bath Bomb

The design of Mistletoe really reminds me of the Rose Bombshell bath bomb, and whilst it's not exactly rose scented, it does still have a floral fragrance of Jasmine that is quite musky and sultry. It turns the water a beautiful shade of pink and purple!

Christmas Lush Haul 2016 | Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub
Sugar Plum Fairy | Lip Scrub

The last item I popped into my virtual basket was this Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub, partially because I'm almost out of my Sara Happ scrub and partially because it's cute AF. A lip scrub is a daily essential for me and even more so in Winter to keep my pout polished and soft. Sugar Plum Fairy smells and tastes like sugary sweet blackcurrants and is instantly my favourite Lush lip scrub by far!

Which Lush Christmas product is your favourite?



  1. ah im so glad someone else loves Lush as much as I do haha!
    I've gone off the snow fairy scent this year though for some reason :( think my fave has to be So White! xx

    1. Strangely I'm not a massive fan of the Snow Fairy Shower Gel, but love the scent in the bath bombs! Can't wait to try So White out, it's smells amazing! xo

  2. I've recently just bought Candy Mountain and definitely want to invest in the Magic Wand! xo

    1. Definitely do, they are so nice and last ages! And if you're feeling extravagant, try them both together! xo

  3. This all makes me wish I was a bath person!! I love those little wands. I'm half tempted to just use them in the shower anyway! Might be a little messy but totally worth it lol

    1. Haha I don't think I'd be so brave! I'm pretty sure they do some shower products too! xo

  4. I love how many glittery pink items Lush have this year! Can't wait to pick them up. x


  5. Grrrreat haul! Last year I had the pink star :-)

  6. Love your haul! Candy mountain is THE best. I really want to try the magic of Christmas wand, it sounds beautiful. I also had no idea that Lush stocked this specific lip scrub, I've just bought the bubblegum one, I may need to buy this too! xx

    1. Thank you lovely! Me neither it must be a newbie for their Winter collection, it smells (and tastes) so good though! xo

  7. I love this Lush haul Catherine! I just recently bought my friend some Lush for her birthday and while I was in the store I had a bit of a sniff of different products (needed to sneeze a little after as you can imagine) and the So White bath bomb smelled lovely! Unfortunately I hate using the bath we currently have so I've not purchased any products for myself this year. But when we move (which we do all the time) hopefully there'll be a great bath to enjoy some Lush products!

    Gorgeous photos too!

    1. Aw I was like that when I was at Uni and I used to save my Lush bits and bobs to have a bubble bath when I visited home and it was heaven! So glad I'm not living in gross student accommodation anymore though haha xo

  8. I love the Magic Wand, it's one of my favourite Christmas products! x

    1. So so nice isn't it, even if I do feel like a five year old whilst using it haha xo

  9. You definitely had a large Lush spree didn't you!! I've never purchased anything from Lush before because I find the smell of the shop way too over bearing, but I think I definitely need to place an online Christmas order ready for some Christmas baths :) I love the sound of The Magic of Christmas Bubble Bar, the So White and Candy Mountain bath bombs and the Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub xo
