- LUSH: Festive Friends...

We all know how popular Lush is, especially amongst us bloggers, and their Christmas/Holiday products in particular are highly sought-after. Therefore, it may surprise you that before receiving this set, I hadn't tried any out. I've always been eyeing them up on other blogs and Instagram, but I've either forgotten to pop into a store or, when I have remembered, I've seen how crowded and overwhelming it looked. So when my brother kindly gifted me their Festive Friends set on Christmas day, I was a very happy bunny!

As you can see, this set contains two Bath Bombs (Dashing Santa & Butterbear) and two Bubble Bars (Christmas Penguin & Christmas Hedgehog). I am so pleased with this gift set as I've previously expressed how much I want to try the Butterbear (so cute) and the other three products are up there too! To see more images of me using them, check out my Instagram @stylesunrise_.

Dashing Santa: This is a satsuma-scented bath bomb and I absolutely love the design of it. I think I'll use this in halves as it is a larger product.

Butter bear: This is a creamy vanilla-scented bear and contains cocoa butter. Not only do I think this design is adorable, it's a great alternative to some of Lush's more extravagant products.

Christmas Penguin: This also wins cuteness points and smells seriously amazing! It creates loads of bubbles and contains orange flower absolute, bergamot oil and lemon & mandarin oils.

Christmas Hedgehog: This is one I've not read much about, but I'm unsure why as who doesn't love hedgehogs? This leaves skin feeling silky smooth with cocoa butter & shea butter, and the lavender oil makes it ideal for relaxing.

Are you a fan of Lush? Have you tried any of these products?


  1. I love Lush a lot! The only product I have from here is Dashing Santa which I can't wait to use :)

  2. This has got to be the cutest Lush box ever full of the most adorable bath treats. Love Lush but haven't bought anything in a good few weeks now, will have to make the most of Jan/Feb baths before it starts getting warmer though x

  17. Your brother obviously knows you well! What a lovely gift. I can never get anything like this as I don't have a bath! But Butterbear is totally adorable.

  26. I love Lush and bought this set for a family member so pleased that it was liked. Was really sad that they did their sale in store this year rather than on line but saved my bank balance Lucy x
