Erin’s Christmas Countdown #10

mhumust-have.jpg

I usually decide what to buy my friends by picking something I want myself and then I know they will like it. This year I have a new problem I want to give some friends a Lush gift set but I can’t seem to part with them, I love them so much I don’t think I can bear to give them away.

With the cold winter air nothing feels better than a warm bath or shower and Lush has everything you need to treat your skin right and leave the bathroom and you smelling delicious. Lush makes the holidays even easier by picking perfect pairings and gift wrapping them the only thing you have to do it peel you fingers of the goodies and hand them to a friend! These Lush gift sets make a great gift of pampering for anyone in your life, here are a few of my favorite gift sets.

So perfect for a girlfriend on top of being all natural products that are great for her they smell delicious and who doesn’t love all the cute pink! Snow Fairy shower is one of my favorite shower gel scents,  sweet as cotton candy it will leave the your whole bathroom smelling amazing.

Snow Fairy Gift Wrapped

If we could have three wishes, this would be all of them. This gift brings together three of our sparkliest, girliest, sweeties: Snow Fairy Shower Gel (truly magical, we wait for it all year-round), Angels Delight soap (smells of jelly beans and is inspired by a colourful kaleidoscope) and Shimmy Shimmy glitterbar (smells of soft vanilla and covers you in glitter). Pick this up for any girly-girls you know and they’ll jump up and down and clap their hands with delight.

Host Thanksgiving Day…in LUSH Style + BLACK FRIDAY DEALS!!!

lush-style-11-23-09.jpg

I was just sent some amazing Lush products to try and was brought right back into my old obsession for this amazing company and their products. This time of year its easy to get caught up in the holiday madness, Lush comes to the rescue with the perfect products to help you slow down and enjoy the moment.

Start with Lush 13 (Unlucky for Dirt) soap on top of being antiseptic it’s very calming on my skin. My hands get so dry this time of year with the cold and the fact I am constantly washing them. After the first use of Lush 13 they didn’t just feel clean they felt softer and moisturized and smelled yummy!

Once you have all your prep work done unwind in the bath with a Lush Cinders Bath bomb, let the fizzing bomb melt your stress away and fill your bathroom with the scent of sweet cinnamon and orange. I just tired the CInders bath bomb this weekend and on top of smelling amazing it was so relaxing simply the perfect end to a hectic day. It leaves the most amazing scent on your skin you might find your loved ones want to snuggle even more than usual!

If the stress of family has you down try the Lush Comforter Bubble Bath bar, it lives up to its name. My daughter had a severe stomach ache yesterday and the poor thing was in so much pain. I remembered I had the Lush Comforter bar in my cabinet and got a warm bath going for her. She went from hunched over in pain to playing in the tub and even a long nap after (which is nothing short of a miracle since she gave up naps before age 2). The bar is huge and can easily be broken in half for two different baths, I only used half for my daughters bath I am saving my other half for a special treat for myself.

Give yourself the gift of relaxation with one of the amazing Lush products, and stock up during black friday on Lush for gifts for your loved ones.

LUSH

Start cooking…

Season the turkey (or Tofurkey, as we prefer at LUSH) and add in the stuffing – just be sure to wash up before working with the vegetables. Use LUSH 13 Soap, Unlucky for Dirt ($7.95 for ¼ lb), a rose-scented soap made with oregano, which is a strong natural antiseptic and antibacterial ingredient. Make sure to keep it in the kitchen for easy access.

Prepare the house…

Be sure to put out festive soaps and luxurious hand lotions for your guests. LUSH Vanilla in the Mist Soap ($7.95 for ¼ lb) is a delicious way for company to wash up and tease their taste buds with a savory blend of vanilla, coconut and tonka. Another great addition to your bathroom is Charity Pot Hand & Body Cream ($20.95). It moisturizes skin and all proceeds go to charity, making it a great way to give back on Thanksgiving.

Enjoy your delicious meal…

Be sure to get a “breath of fresh air” in between dinner and dessert or you may fall asleep from an overdose of tryptophan (or tofutophan). LUSH Breath of Fresh Air Facial Toner ($7.95 100ml) will give you a quick spritz to awaken your mind and rehydrate skin. For an added jolt, keep it in the fridge!

Leave the dishes until tomorrow and give thanks to a hot bath – you deserve it…

LUSH has exactly what you need to wash away the day’s stress. If you’re looking to warm tired, sore muscles, use Cinders Bath Bomb ($3.95). Or if want some bubbles to relax, use The Comforter Bubble Bar ($8.95), aptly named because it eases your mind and body after a long day.

And for the day after, make sure to take advantage of LUSH’s Black Friday offer. When you spend $50, you’ll get a FREE Snow Fairy Shower Gel (250ml), but if you shell out $80, you can choose between a FREE Snow Fairy Shower Gel (500ml) or a Snow Fairy pre-wrapped gift that contains a Snow Fairy Shower Gel, Angel’s Delight Soap, and Glitterbug Massage Bar. Let the holiday shopping begin!

Erin’s Pick #2

I first got hooked on Lush went I went to school in Canada, it’s like a grown up girl’s candy shop. All their products are handmade and free of the chemicals you find in a lot of regular bathing items. Anything from Lush would make a luxurious gift for a friend, I love that they come gift wrapped and ready to give!

Mr. Butterball

A vanilla sweet tonic for over-dry holiday skin
This charming snowman smells just like our sweet, soothing Butterball bath bomb as he melts pieces of cocoa butter into the bathwater to moisturize and soften your whole body. A classic way to get children into the bath when they’ve been watching too many cartoons, eaten too much chocolate and are all too excited about the holidays. (Same goes for adults.)

Christmas Kisses

Snowcake
