Lush Christmas 2021 Bath First Impressions

 Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that I would talk to you all about my first impressions of the Lush Christmas Range. Due to this range containing a plethora of products, I've decided to split it up into three posts. Bath. Shower and Body, and Face, Lips & Fragrances. 

Today's post will be focusing on the bath bombs and bubble bars in this range. 

Bath Bombs: 

Orange Pop 

Squeeze this juicy Orange and it will go pop! Who doesn't love a good citrusy bath bomb to help them feel uplifted and refreshed during the cold winter months? This bomb contains Popping Candy obviously, but it also contains Sicilian Red Mandarin, Brazilian Orange, Tangerine and Bergamot Oils. This to me creates a zingy yet slightly sort of peppery fresh Orange scent to me. If you like Orange Scrub or Repeat Foot Balm then imagine that but in a bath bomb form! I think that this could really be made into an all year round product at Lush but during the wintry months, for me, it will definitely be used on those days where I need a little boost as I know that this product will definitely give me that zesty pizzaz that I will need on a cold day! Priced at £3.95.

The Bear is back! This festive favourite is back and better than ever! This bomb contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Synthetic Musk and Ylang Ylang Oil. This combo create a very rich soothing Vanilla scent to me. I also normally only pick one up at Christmas due to this bomb being out all year round in the form of Butterball but I do love a bear which draws me into buying one every year! If you have dry or sensitive skin then this may be one for you! Priced at £2.95.

Sleepy Bear 

Who doesn't love snuggling up to a sleepy bear? Talking about loving bears, there is a new bear in town! This bear is like Butterbear but contains a few different things. This bomb contains Lavender Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Tonka Absolute, Ylang Ylang, Fine Oatmeal, Lavender Flowers and Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter. I would say that this is a cousin of the Butterbear. The Lavender, Tonka and Benzoin to me create a rich creamy sort of Lavender scent with a whispering note of Ylang Ylang. The Fine Oatmeal and Lavender Flowers add something to the bath and skin but add to the power of scent as these products to me only enhance that malty vanilla Lavender scent that this product contains. This one would be great for someone with anxiety or someone who needs a boost when it comes to attempting to sleep. It would also be great for any little ones that need a buddy for the bath! Priced at £2.95.

The Golden Pudding 

We all love a big gold pudding! If you are missing Golden Wonder this year, do not be afraid, The Golden Pudding has pushed it under the Christmas Tree and is now sitting where once Golden Wonder resided. This product contains Sweet Wild Orange, Lime and Wine Lees Oils to create a boozy citrus based scent. The best way to describe this scent for those who have never tried this scent in its many names, imagine a Bucks Fizz cocktail that you can use in the bath! This is not for those that are afraid or repulsed by glitter in their bath water. If you have tried Golden Wonder, Bubbly, Celebrate, Bucks Fizz named products then you will love this! Priced at £5.95.

Hey! Hollywood 

You better bet your bottom dollar that when you use this bomb, you'll have your photos in all of the magazines and your name on a star! This bath bomb not only looks the part with a 3D holly on top but also smells the part as it contains Peppermint Oil. This to me smells like Beats Shower Jelly or Maypole Soap from a few years ago but with a sort of rich toffee twist which I wasn't expecting. I quite enjoy the sweet toffee note mixed with the fresh Peppermint notes. Priced at £5.95.

I Want  A Hippopotamus For Christmas 

I have mentioned this before in last year's post so I am going to leave this very short. This cutie contains Grapefruit, Bergamot, Almond essential and Cold Pressed Raspberry Seed Oils to create a sherbet like Raspberry scent with notes of Violet and Lemon to me which I absolutely adore. This bomb also contains Popping Candy to create a great experience in the bath and only costs £2.95 which is great value compared to some of the other bombs this year.

Jingle Spells 

Who doesn't love to make a bell ring? Jingle Spells was out last year but has had a few changes made to it. This year the Salt that makes this bomb ring has changed in colour and so has the scent. This bomb now contains Lemon Myrtle, Ylang Ylang and Grapefruit Oils which creates a sort of sherbet Lemon based scent to me. If you're missing the scent of the old Jingle Spells you can now pick it up all year round by picking up a Toby's Magic Cow. If you like Baked Alaska but want it in a format that isn't a soap then pick this beauty up! Priced at £4.95.

Rangoli Dreams 

This actually isn't a Christmas product... This product has been specifically made for Diwali. Not only is this bomb beautiful but it also smells beautiful too. This bomb contains Green Mandarin, Rose, Cardamom and Almond Essential Oils and Benzoin Resinoid. This bomb also contains Coconut Milk Powder which will nourish the skin. To me this smells kind of mainly of a mix of soft soft Rose and husky  Cardamom and definitely is one to sniff if you're near a store. Priced at £5.95. (Only available till 4th November or stocks last).

Santa's Magic Sleigh

Who doesn't want to ride Santa's Magic Sleight tonight? In the bath I mean of course! This is technically three bombs in one as it contains Santa which smells delightfully ofThe Comforter, a bear which smells of Butterbear, and the sleigh which smells of Snow Fairy. I think that this is a great bomb for those that want something to relax with on Christmas Eve. This bundle of bombs contain Popping Candy, Cypress, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang and Persian Lime Oils. It also contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Synthetic Musk and Blackcurrant Absolute to create these three signature scents. I think that it is a great concept! Priced at £7.50.

Shoot For The Stars 

This is a cult classic at Lush. Again, I have mentioned this beautiful bath bomb in several blog post. This bomb not only looks great as it is replicating the night sky but smells great as it contains Brazilian Orange and Bergamot Oils which creates a wonderfully sweet toffee like scent to me. This bomb also contains Creamed Coconut, Almond Oil and Cocoa Butter stars to nourish the skin. I absolutely love this bomb. If you love sweet scents, glitter, or the Honey I Washed The Kids scent then you will love this! Priced at £4.95.

Lets throw a Snowball into the tub! I love the look of this bomb especially as everyone has been made slightly different. The bomb that I got did remind me more of sort of a spherical tube than a spherical bomb but as I said, it comes with the charm and uniqueness of this bomb. This bomb contains Eucalyptus, Lemongrass and Peppermint Oils to create an uplifting slightly citrus, slightly sea breeze based scent. I absolutely love this scent even though I am not the biggest fan of Eucalyptus itself. If you love Outback Mate Soap from Lush, then you will love this product! Priced at £ 4.95.

Snowman Dreaming 

Who doesn't love a cute Snowman when they are dreaming? I have talked about this bomb in previous posts so again I will keep this short. This bomb is not only cute but spurts out a plethora of colours into the bath through its rainbow design on the side of the bomb. This bomb contains Lavender and Cedarwood to create a wonderful relaxing yet herbal scent. If you like anything with Lavender in then you will enjoy this bomb! Priced at £3.50.

Snow Fairy 

Who wants to feel like a fairy at Christmas? I do! Snow Fairy is back! I have talked about this bomb a fair few times. This bomb contains Synthetic Musk and Persian Lime Oils which to me creates a wonderful sort of Pear meets Candy Floss scent. It is pink and creates amazing bath art. If you love anything sweet then you will love this! Priced at £4.945.

Snow Fairy Lights 

What is Christmas without Fairy Lights? Lush have joined in the fun with creating a. Fairy Lights named bomb which is 3 bombs in one. The small star of this bomb can be used as a bomb on its own, the balls inside the bigger star can be used as a bomb as they are little Snow Fairy bombs and the bigger star can be used a bath bomb. If you are feeling luxurious then why not throw it all in at once! This bomb contains the same scent as Snow Fairy (read the last paragraph for details on scent) and makes bath time oh so fun! Personally, I would use them separately but that's just me! Priced at £7.50.

You Shall Go To The Ball! 

Who doesn't love a good ball? You Shall Go To The Ball is a perfect bomb for those festive office party times! This bomb contains Sicilian Lemon Oil and Tonka Absolute. To me, this bomb smells quite floral whist having a sweet slightly Strawberry Milkshake like note underneath the floral note. This bomb also looks like a carriage which I think is super cute! If you like sweet scents or bath bombs that are whimsical you will enjoy this one! Priced at £4.95.

Bubble Bars 

Cinnamon Roll Bubble Roll 

I love a good freshly baked Cinnamon Roll in the morning! I may be biased but I absolutely love anything with Cinnamon in it. This bubble bar contains Cinnamon Leaf, Clove Leaf, Lime, Brazilian Orange and Patchouli Oils, Benzoin Resinoid, Fair Trade Organic Cinnamon Powder and Clove Powder. There is a lot of Oils and Powders but to me this reminds me of Cinnamon Sugar in the middle of a Cinnamon Roll which I always have adored. I think that this one will be great for those cold days. If you love anything spicy then you will love this bubble bar. Priced at £5.95.

Candy Cane 

Four for you! You go, Glen Coco! Who doesn't love a good Candy Cane? This bubble bar has a little bit of a change this year. Not only in colour but in scent too! This contains Sicilian Lemon, Bergamot and Peppermint Oils which to me creates a sort of slightly citrus, slightly fresh, slightly sweet scent which I quite like. I always have thought that the Candy Cane Bubble Bar from Lush was a little bit too sweet for me but I really enjoy this product. Priced at £4.50.

North Pole 

Let's go to the North Pole! This is a brand new product for Lush. Thus product has a design that most may know. This product has a Bath Melt that you can snap off separately and a bubble bar that you can use alongside it or instead of it. This product contains Brazilian Orange, Clove Bud, Cassia and Davana Oils whereas the melt contains Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter to make skin soft and smooth. The oils remind me of Pomche when it comes to scent or honestly a fruity hair conditioner. I know that sounds weird but it just does. Priced at £5.95.

Snow Fairy Roll 

Snow Fairy bubbles galore! This Bubble Roll creates amazing bubbles and and smells gorgeous for those who love a pink candy scented bubbles. Like the rest of the Snow Fairy range, this contains Persian Lime Oil and Synthetic Musk. I quite enjoy this in small doses. Priced at £5.95.

The Big Snow Fairy Roll

This is pretty much the above but in a bigger form. I think that this is an amazing product for a gift for someone who loves Snow Fairy. Priced at £20.
