There’s nothing quite like the sensation of taking a dip in a steamy bubble bath as the snow falls outside. Lush has always been a one-stop shop for all your skincare needs, and this year the beauty supplier is offering more than enough holiday-themed bath bombs, shower gels and face masks to fulfill your wishlist.
Christmas and Hanukkah are already here, so whether you need a last-minute present or just want to treat yourself, here’s a look at 10 of Lush’s best holiday products for all your gift-giving needs.
- Let It Glow Shimmer Bar ($8.95)
Both a light moisturizer and a skin highlighter in one, you can rub this baby pink, bubblegum-scented shimmer bar anywhere you want your skin to shine. Try wearing it on your shoulders or collarbones to achieve that fairylike glow before heading off to the holiday party.
- World’s Smallest Disco Bath Bomb ($7.95)
You don’t need any Bee Gees playing to have a good time at this disco. Just toss this bomb in a boiling tub and feast your eyes on the spectacular mingling of colors as you prepare to soak in a festive mixture of lemon, grapefruit and ylang ylang. Boogie shoes are optional.
- Yog Nog Shower Gel ($10.95)
Everyone needs a good lather to wash away the dirt and stress of the day, so why not treat yourself to a glimmering gold shower gel? Maple syrup water retains the moisture in your skin as the smells of caramel and clove make for a luxurious bathing experience.
- Happy Shower Gel ($9.95)
This turquoise concoction lives up to its name. A favorite among the holiday products, it certainly put a smile on my face as the combination of Sicilian lemon, wild orange and neroli oils left me both clean and smelling like a sweet piece of Christmas candy.
- Yog Nog Bubble Bar ($9.95)
Bath bombs have been the college girl’s go-to luxury item for years now, but do you ever wish they produced those movie-star-like bubbles? Then you’ve been sleeping on the bubble bar, and it’s time to wake up! Pro tip: instead of using the entire bar at once, cut it in half and you’ll get twice the use out of it.
- Galaxy Lip Scrub ($12.95)
Forget Tide Pods, Lush’s lip scrubs are the new forbidden snack, and this one’s hard to resist. This blue raspberry-flavored scrub is made with castor sugar and jojoba oil and will buff away those chapped lips, leaving you in prime condition to sit under the mistletoe.
- Snow Fairy Body Conditioner ($10.95)
Did this product make any significant difference in the softness of my skin? Not really. Do I need it? Nope. Do I still want to immerse myself in a bath of the stuff? Absolutely. Infused with cherry, mango and avocado butters, its sweet scent and silky smooth texture is entrancing. It also comes in a package-free formula, because we have one planet, damn it!
- Rudolph Jelly Face Mask ($9.95)
I’m personally partial to Lush’s clay-based masks, but this one goes out to all the jelly face mask lovers out there. With toning orange juice, deep-cleansing rhassoul mud and a chocolate pudding aroma, this mask definitely won’t leave you with a red nose.
- Once Upon A Time Naked Body Lotion ($10.95)
Sold sans packaging, this green apple-scented lotion doesn’t just smell amazing — it’s chock-full of nourishing shea butters, jojoba oil, murumuru and cocoa. All you have to do is hold it against your skin, give the bar a second to warm up and spread it as you normally would. Feel free to remind yourself that you’re saving the planet as you moisturize.
- Golden Pear Bar Soap ($9.95)
One of Lush’s most moisturizing soaps, this pear-shaped bar is loaded with murumuru butter, cardamom oil, pear puree and organic cocoa butter. This product is perfect for winter skin as it fights off dryness while leaving you with a fruity, spicy finish. And like all the aforementioned brews, it’s 100% vegan.
