Mini Lush Christmas Haul

So here's a little mini Christmas Lush haul I ordered on the release day of the Christmas range. We all know when the Winter range is on the shelves in Lush it's basically means Christmas is here, right? So I thought I'd share what I got and why...

So first thing I chose from the Christmas range is the newly designed Shoot For The Stars. I only bought one of these because I didn't know if I'd like the new display and the bath melt which get's released from the golden stars. Sometimes my skin gets irritated by things like that but I'm really hoping my skin behaves so I can buy more. The smell is the same as usual and is one of my all time favourite scents from Lush which is Honey I Washed The Kids. I think Honey I Washed The Kids smells like Honey and Caramel mixed together. The price of these bath bombs is £4.25. I really hope I like this one as much as the old design. I have kind of got my doubts about it because the old one released a lot of different colours (blue, yellow, pink, purple) so obviously it was a very colourful bath bomb. The new one looks like it just releases an blue colour and then the golden/yellow bath melts cast a golden shimmer over the top of the blue. But we'll see.

I will more than likely post a picture from the bath bombs I've bought in this mini haul on instagram in the upcoming weeks so you can follow me here to see them if you'd like.

Next from my little haul is the Rose Jam Shower Gel in 500g. I've wrote about this shower gel already on my blog. I came across it purely accidentally because of the boxing day sales. Because of the usual crashing on the website I just put whatever I could click on in my basket and checked out and Rose Jam was in one of the gift sets I got. (Home For Christmas gift set? maybe?) And I fell in love with it. I've never smelled this scent in anything else before, it's an unusual Rose scent and I find really calming and relaxing after a stressful day. It's one of those smells that you can use all year round as well. So I've basically been rationing an 100g bottle since January this year and now I have the huge 500g bottle, yay! I was going to buy another 100g for now but I found out was going to get an 250g bottle as one of my Christmas presents this year because I'm always going on about it. So I've put the money to that to get the bigger bottle so it'll last me longer. So yeah my Rose Jam shower gel is a very early Christmas present lol. 
The prices range between: £4.95 100g, £9.95 250g, £16.50 500g and £27.79 1kg.

Next is the redesigned Northern Lights bath bomb. I can't say whether this bath bomb will be as good as the old design because I've never been able to get my hands on the old design. (Yes really) To put it blunt my local Lush shop is in an place which I hate and I only really go there if I really have to. So I tend to order online more than going the shop. But the last time they were in the Christmas range they always seemed to be out of stock online. I really like the new design though, it quite heavy considering it's cheaper than the Shoot For The Stars bath bomb. This one is £3.95. It smells very fresh and floral. It's really nice, definitely going to buy another one of these. I think this one would be a nice present too because it doesn't look like an usual round bath bomb because of it's unique shape.

Finally is the 100g Coalface facial soap.This isn't a Christmas product but I was running low and it's one of my holy grail skin care product. It's amazing. It's definitely made me skin less angry and it helps to calm down any breakouts. It's smells like Charcoal and Sandalwood mainly. But I have noticed in the past two of these I've had that they smell of licorice more and it kind of overrides the Charcoal scent. Some people may love that but I'm not a huge fan of licorice so it does let it down for me a little but I still swear by it. It's definitely something you should try if you have oily skin. I tend to cut mine up in thirds just because I find it easier to work with and they seem to last me around 5 months. So it's worth the money. The price of these is: £5.95 for 100g, £14.85 for 250g and £29.75 for 500g.

I did ask for some samples and I am going to write about them in an separate post in the next week or so. I have tried three of them before and then there's one I haven't tried because it's a new winter range product. The samples I got are: Fresh Farmacy soap, Sandstone soap, Fireside soap and Curly Wurly Shampoo. So keep a look out for the post about these soon! 

That's all of my mini haul. I thought I'd do a little chrismassy background for the Christmas range products because my cute little lights arrived lol. Hope you enjoyed the post! Remember to keep a look out for the samples review post coming either next week or the week after x
