Holiday Offerings From LUSH Cosmetics (& Why I Think You Should Avoid The Holiday Gift Sets)

So its that time of year again! LUSH Cosmetics is one thing if not predictable. Every year they come out with a TON of Christmas gift sets, new releases and old favourites (Snow Fairy Anyone?). There are some new products that look really interesting to me and I cant wait to try!

Party Popper (5.95) Our bright pink and blue bathing scent-sation is bound to be a hit this season. It fizzes around the tub, snapping due to the popping candy and releasing a 'dry champagne' perfume of bergamot, tangerine and rose oil. Then, out pops our special 'confetti' that is made of dehydrated honeydew melon soap flakes. Melt those into your skin to wash yourself and smell simply divine!

CrackerSnap (9.95) This Bath Bomb is like a big present to yourself, and it's chock-full of surprises. Pull it apart, or toss it in the tub and inhale the zesty lemongrass, bergamot and rosewood fragrance, then listen as the popping candy crackles and snaps in the water. You'll soon find out that it is stuffed with treats; a party hat to wear in the tub, a joke to tell yourself and a crocodile reusable bubble bar (the snap!).

There are also many other holiday classics that I hope to stock up on during the Boxing Day sale. I know, I know, they say every year that they are cancelling the buy one get one free holiday products sale but I assume they will. And if they do, I hope to stock up on enough bubble bars and shower gels to get me through until NEXT year! But that being said, these two I am not going to wait on! I must get them!!!

The one issue I have is with the gift boxes. The concept sounds fantastic. Because what happens you end up trying things you wouldn't necessarily try if they were not in the box. And I love that! BUT........ Not only is there no financial pay off or deal in getting the pre-made gift sets, they actually cost MORE money than buying each item on their own. I am NOT ok with that. Gift sets should hold value as far as I am concerned. And LUSH gift sets not only have no VALUE to them, but they actually cost you much more money. But I do have friends who feel that having a gift pre packaged, picked out and wrapped is well worth the extra $$$ so I guess it boils down to what you are personally comfortable with. But please please keep in mind they are more money!

Secret Santa ($9.95) The go-to gift for all those tricky Secret Santa presents, this one suits everyone – so it doesn’t matter whose name you pull out of the hat!
