I'm not sure I have mentioned it before on my blog but if you follow me on Instagram you will know that I love a good bath bomb. Lush is my all time favourite shop to purchase them from and it really is a guilty pleasure of mine. On Boxing Day we popped into town and I had only one place in mind that I wanted to bother trying to see what the sale was like this year. The shop opened at 10.30am and we didn't get there until 10.15am so you can imagine what the queue was like. The hubby and Charlie went off to get a coffee and a cake while myself and Isabelle joined the queue. Isabelle shares my love for Lush, I'm not sure if it's all the bright colours or the smell but she stood in the queue with me like an absolute trooper.
Forty five minutes later and we were finally a few metres away from the store entrance. The only reason I hadn't given up is because I could see that they still had so much available. This is the point were Isabelle had waited for long enough and she went off with hubby and Charlie but it did mean that when I finally got in, I got round quickly and got what I wanted. That is the longest I have ever waited outside a shop (an hour in total) for a sale and I'm not entirely sure I will do it again. As far as I'm aware the majority of the Christmas range was 50% off, so let's go through what I got.
Above is Thundersnow, this is one that I haven't actually seen before and I picked it up for the hubby. I had never smelt this one before but it's just lovely. It packs a punch with peppermint but also smells of cocoa. According to the Lush website it also contains popping candy which will be a surprise for Phill!
Who doesn't love the Golden Wonder? I wish I had been able to get one of the huge ones that I have seen but I will settle for the regular one any day. This has to be one of my favourite Christmas products, smells amazing and turns the water a deep blue colour with an amazing golden shimmer.
Next is a favourite of Isabelle's, she loves using this herself and is obsessed with the pink water it creates. The snow fairy scent is one of my all time favourites and because it's a bubble bar it makes the best bubbles. I also love the fact that it's reusable, we normally get 3-4 baths from one magic wand.
The Butter Bear is something I have used in the past when I have been looking for something simple to use, especially when my eczema has been bad and the same goes for using it in the children's baths.
If I could stock up on anything it would be the Candy Mountain bubble bar, I could quite happily use it every day! Again this is something that lasts a few goes and has a sweet, candy scent.
The my two front teeth bubble bar is definitely a new favourite of mine. This is another sweet, candy smelling bar but it also contains lavender oil and for something that really is a bubble bath I've found it to be very moisturising. One that I will be picking up again come Christmas 2018 (yes I just mentioned the C word).
And that's my haul, how long it will last is anyone's guess, especially with the kids around. They no longer want their boring bubble bath and who can blame them! Did you pick up anything amazing in the sales? Are you a Lush addict like me?
