Lush Have a Sweet Christmas Set
Advantages: design, lovely gift, fab products, the smell, affordable
Disadvantages: cheaper to buy individually
Lush is a company offering a wide range of fresh cosmetic products. Their products are not tested on animals.
Lush offer a range of gifts from £5.95 - £100.00. Some of their gift sets are released especially for Christmas and make ideal little gifts or stocking fillers.
One of the cheaper gift sets is "Have A Sweet Christmas".
~Have A Sweet Christmas~
"Have a sweet Christmas and a candy-scented New Year!"
This gift set includes 2 popular Lush products :
Candy Mountain is a bubble bar. It can be split or used whole in a hot bath and will create loads of bubbles! This years edition of Candy Mountain takes shape in a mountain peak with a pink and white design. The bubble bar is scented with vanilla and candy floss.
Angel's Delight is one of the limited edition Lush soaps. The gift set soap takes form in a pink, chunky star. The regular soap has many colours and glitter decorations. The soap is infused with tangarine and orange oil. 60g
These bath goodies are safely packaging with a small, cardboard box. The box has lots of polystyrine colourful bits. The box is then wrapped up in wrapping paper (which can be recycled) and this particular set has cupcakes and gingerbread men adorning the paper - I suppose to confirm its sweet status! There is a paper ribbon and gift tag as well.
The gift set is priced at £5.95. The individual products can be bought with the bubble bar costing £2.35 and a 100g soap costing £2.50. Available from Lush stores or www.lush.co.uk.
My fiance recently treated me to this gorgeous gift set from Lush. Whilst the individual products work out better value for money, the set is so perfectly presented I couldn't resist picking this one. This set is cheap and would make the perfect gift as its already wrapped. Even if you put it in a gift bag, the strong sweet aroma would soon confirm that it was a Lush gift set!
I love sweet smells and adore the Lush bubble bars so this set seemed the perfect choice and I'm so glad my fiance decided to buy it for me. He's a big sweetie! Once unwrapped, the bubble bar and soap look beautiful - very girly, pink and delectably scented. I love to use Lush products as a treat as I mostly have showers. I hadn't used either product before so looked forward to a relaxing bath.
This bubble bar is quite big and has a squidgy, sort of moist feel. It smeels absolutely perfect and has a bubblegum tinge more than candyfloss. The vanilla is natural smelling and compliments the sweet bubble bar perfectly. I split this into 3 sections to get the best value from it. I cut the top off - just the peak. This was for my toddler who loves Lush bubble bars like his Mummy.
I have no issues with popping a small piece into a warm bath for my son as I have always found Lush products to be very gentle on the skin. Despite only using the tiniest piece of bubble bar, the finished result was impressive. The bubbles quickly formed and spread out across his bath. The bath was lovely and soft and his skin felt amazingly smooth and sweet scented when he got out as did my hands!
For my own bath, I used half of the bigger piece one night and have the next night and was extremely happy with my bathing experience. The bar is very easy to crumble under the tap and changes to a smooth, thick paste which blends in with the water. My bath water had a pink tinge to it and had a huge, fluffy topping of luxurious bubbles! It looked more appealing than your typical cheap bubble bath and I couldn't wait to jump in. The sweet aroma lingered around our flat and filled my bathroom with the most inviting scent..
The water felt perfectly soft and silky and I relaxed for 30mins whilst the luxurious bubbles draped against my skin. It felt wonderful and a true treat almost . The sweet aroma of vanilla lingered around me for the duration of my bath. By the time 30mins was up, a lot of the bubbles had disappeared and sort of absorbed into my skin. The random bubbles that remained on the surface of my bath went to good use as I rubbed them across my skin and received a thick, creamy layer of foam which cleansed my skin and softened it even further.
No residue was left to rinse away from my bath afterwards. My skin once dried felt moisturised and smooth to the touch. The delightful sweetness clung to my skin for a short while and was a pleasure to sniff! I enjoyed my luxurious bath and felt relaxed and when I woke up the next morning, my skin still felt wonderfully soft though the scent had long gone.
Overall 5/5 and well worth the cost.
~Angelic Soap For An Angel Like Me~
I have used this soap with and without the bubble bar being present in my bath. It is beautifully shaped though does take a bit of getting used to as the edges can seem a bit sharp at first and need softened. My bar had a cluster of gold glitter particles on the top and smelled fresh and sweet. I don't often use soaps as I find they dry my sensitive skin out but I can make an exception for Lush! The soap cohtains coconut and rapeseed oil.
Once my skin is damp, it took a few sweeps of this soap across my skin to get a decent lather going. Whilst this soap doesn't produce as thick a lather as some shower gels, it is sufficient enough to provide ample cleansing. A slick, creamy layer of lather feels soft and luxurious against my skin and is also very gentle. It rinses off well and doesn't leave any residue on my skin. My skin felt super soft and cleansed which I appreciated given that this is a soap. A few speckles of glitter transfered but nothing over the top or too noticeable. I did like that the lather softened my legs enough to be able to run my razor over them with ease though a shaving gel works out so much cheaper!
The best aspect of this soap is the smell. It compliments Candy Mountain in a fresh, lighter way and is simply divine! At first it was fruity and almost citrussy which is down to the tangarine and orange oils but once the lather developed, it changed to a heaventy, sweetie shop type scent. I would say something like jelly babies or jelly beans - lots of different fruity and sweet aromas in one bag and mixing together. Absolutely delicious and I can smell it for a few hours after drying off. When used after bathing in Candy Mountain, the blend of scents on my skin increased and lasted several hours.
What did surprise me is how quickly the soap started to decrease in size. I suppose I am too used to Dove and Palmolive to appreciate the short lived experience from Lush. After 1 use I noticed a decrease in size and by the time I had used it half a dozen times, there wasn't much left of it. This does make it less value for money than other brands but you are paying for the smell and luxurious experience (as well as the company branding).
I would give this soap 4/5. It looked, smelled and performed well. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a 100g chunk as they are said to be more colourful when cut from the block in store.
Both products in the set highlighted my love of all things sweet and pink. I enjoyed using them and my skin loved them. It's the perfect little set for a girly girl though the scents may be a bit too sweet for many. I loved the set and can recommend it as a gift!
Thanks for reading x
