Lush Christmas Event

This post is a bit late going up so apologies. On the third of October I was invited to the Nottingham Lush's Christmas event, this was the first ever blogging event I'd attended so I was very excited but also quite nervous as I didn't know anyone else who was going.

It turned out to be a great evening, we were shown a lot of demonstrations of some of the new products. We were first shown a demonstration of 'Sparkly Pumpkin' which I think is really cute, I think they'd be great to use a decorations around the house for Halloween, plus they'd make your house smell really good. Then we shown 'Sparkler', which can be seen in the picture below, it was extremely glittery!


We then went to explore the new Christmas products, all of which were lovely and smelt great, it got to the point where I couldn't tell the difference between any of the bath bombs as I'd smelt so many! We were given a demonstration of 'Yog Nog' which has a warm and spicy scent, it also reminded me slightly of toffee. I don't usually think about buying soaps but I would consider buying this one in the future. Another new product was the 'First Snow' sparkly dusting powder, we were told that this could be used to give your skin a slight shimmer or as dry shampoo. Another product that stood out for me was the 'Celebrate' body lotion, this had one of my favourite scents, it's very citruses and contains lime oil and Brazilian orange oil. I tested it on my hand and it left my skin feeling super soft.


The gift sets were also amazing! There was one called '12 Days Of Christmas' which was like an advent calendar with different sections for each product, the great thing about it is that you'd be able to reuse it afterwards to keep new lush products in. Another gift set that caught my eye was called 'The Nightingale' which contains 20 products, the packaging was what I was drawn to as it was quite Art Deco and fairytale like.

Unfortunately I didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked, I ended up just taking my phone rather than my camera and got a bit carried away smelling products rather than photographing them!


We were kindly allowed to pick three things to put on our wish list and take home with us, after much debating and wondering around the shop I chose to take home 'Star Light, Star Bright' which is a bath melt, 'Drummers Drumming' a bubble bar and 'Santa's Lip Scrub'. I have to say I am most excited about the lip scrub as it's been on my wish list for a very long time plus it tastes of cola!

All in all it was a great evening and I'll definitely be back at Lush soon to stock up on some of the new products, mainly for friends though as I only have a bath in my university house and not at home (sad face).

What's your favourite product from the Lush Halloween and Christmas ranges?
