Lush Christmas Haul

Ahhhh hello Lush. It's been a while. I popped into my local Lush recently and errrm, went a bit wild. I'm obsessed with their bath bombs at the best of times, so gimme a limited edition Christmas selection and I'm yours. I needed a new lip scrub, but the rest were just because....

Father Christmas Bath Bomb | £3.75 | link
Santasaurus Reusable Bubble Bar | £5.95 | link
Shoot For The Stars | £4.25 | link
Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrub | £5.75 | link
Mistletoe Bath Bomb | £4.25 | link
So White Bath Bomb | £4.25 | link
Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb | £4.25 | link

When I got home I noticed they'd popped a little extra something in the bag with a little 'pay it forward' card. They said it was their act of kindness and they just wanted me to pass on the kindness. How lovely. I got the Outback Mate Soap, which smells absolutely divine. I rarely buy soaps from Lush but the one's I've had I've loved.

Have you had any of the Lush Christmas range?

For Benefit Lovers

Well hellooo! Now I'm being cheeky here and actually blogging one of my own Christmas presents - I know, it's a new low! Hubby said it had to go away for Christmas but I just had to show you all first before it goes out of stock forever! Say hello to Benefit's Dolly Darling Gift Set...

This limited edition gift set contains 4 of their best sellers, 3 of which are full size.. ho ho hooo...

Gimme Brow in 03 Medium (fun size)
Hoola Bronzer
The POREfessional
Roller Lash Mascara

Retailing at £44.50, this limited edition Christmas set is actually worth £73, a bargain in itself. We grabbed it when ASOS had 20% so I've got a massive chuffy on. Love a beauty bargain! I absolutely love Hoola and Roller Lash especially so I'm so happy to get my hands on this set.

Get yours here, if you can.

New B&M Winter Candles

I spoke recently about the amazing Bath & Body Works Candle Dupes in B&M (post here), and how everyone went crazy for them. Well they're back with a whole new Winter range... and they're GORGEOUS!!

The winter versions include the cutest snowflake-embossed lids and the same double-wicks. They burn so evenly and last at least 20hours. Which, for £2.99 is an absolute steal!! I managed to get my hands on 3 but I've seen at least one more (which I need 😂). 

Iced Candy - Fresh & Sweet
Frosted Cranberry - Sweet Berry
Winter Mist - Fresh, Fruity Scent
(Wow, I'm so bad at describing candles, ha)

All I'm saying is.. get to B&M!

Christmas At The Body Shop

It's DECEMBER!! EEEEK! I thought I'd kick start the best month of the year with some amazing Christmas goodies from The Body Shop. I was very kindly invited to my local store last month to view their new Christmas range (we even had Prosecco & Bucks Fizz flavour crisps & bubbly - yum!). They had an offer where if you spend £30 in store you get double points PLUS a free gift worth £20. (NOTE: On 1 & 2 December they will have a similar offer but this time the free gift is worth £30 -2 days only). Anyway, I picked up a couple of Christmas bits as well as one of their new face masks, I then claimed my free gift and the lovely ladies also threw in a couple of extras for me to enjoy. There was SO much to choose from I didn't know where to look first. Obviously I needed to see what Christmassy smells were released this year. They've brought out Frosted Berries, Spiced Apple & Vanilla Chai. I absolutely adore Frosted Berries & Spiced Apple. Vanilla Chai is also beautiful but I get a bit sick of Vanilla scents so I went for the other two. They also have huuuge advent calendars and tonnes of awesome gift sets. I ended up coming home with...

Frosted Berries Treat Box £8

Fuji Green Tea Festive Picks £20

How amazing!!? They have so many other gorgeous sets available that would make perfect gifts. Get yourselves down to The Body Shop ASAP!!
