We all know that winter’s chilly temps and extended evenings are primo bath weather and the perfect excuse to spend a little more time in the tub. Well aware of our inherent need for comfort during the cooler months, LUSH are once again pulling out all the stops with the perfect collision of cosy winter scents, festive spirit and the good soapy stuff with their annual, mid-year re-release of all your Christmas faves.
If you’re anything like us, you know that it’s not really winter until the ethical cosmetics company release their Christmas in July range. Formulas custom built for the Northern Hemisphere’s chilly holiday season, here down under we are lucky enough to take full advantage of the festive range twice a year – and oh boy we do. Hitting stores last week, the range of feel-good, winter warmer scents in the form of LUSHious scrubs, gels and bombs has us ready to jump head first into the tub (although a gentle submerging technique will probably do).
Here to help you get festive in the tub this July, we’ve collated our top picks of the LUSH Christmas in July 2017 range, happy scrubbing!
Fan favourite, cult classic and long time addition to the Christmas in July range, Snow Fairy returns in 2017 to transform showers across the country into luxuriously sweet sensations. Capturing the magical essence of the holiday season, this enchantingly sweet blend is a delightful antidote for the winter chill. Between its candy floss scent and mesmerising, sparkling formula, Snow Fairy is a concoction to be reckoned with.
Available in shower gel and body conditioner, lather yourself with the bubble gum delight and be whisked away into a dreamland in the warm comfort of your morning shower. Love soaping up in clouds of candy floss and bubble gum? Sprinkle on some Fairy Dust for a sugary-sweet sparkle all day long.
Soothing, gentle and comforting, Twilight’s sweet floral scent is sure to send you deep into dreamland in the heavy blink of an eye. Bask in the nourishing concoction of calming lavender oil, sweet tonka and floral ylang ylang oil for the perfect pre-bedtime ritual. Forget the icy weather outdoors as you are enveloped in the shimmering indigo blend of essential oils that will drift you off to your much deserved zzz’s in no time.
Lather up with the luxuriously soft Twilight shower gel or immerse yourself in the twinkling bath bomb for the ultimate exercise of self-love. If you love this blend of fragrances (and we’re sure you will), we recommend polishing off your night time pamper sesh with the Sleepy Body Lotion to give your skin a break from winter’s harsh temps with an enriching blend of organic cocoa butter and delicate lavender oil.
An oldie but a goodie, Rose Jam never fails to satisfy our every shower need. Deliciously floral in fragrance, this lush (no pun intended) blend of Turkish roses and argan oil is sure to leave your skin feeling hydrated and refreshed. The comforting scent of vanilla paired with the restorative properties of rose oil and the abundance of antioxidants in argan oil, Rose Jam is the perfect all over body pamper product this winter. We can’t get enough of this Christmas in July favourite and luckily we don’t have to! The deliciously floral scent is available in decadent shower gel, luxe bath bubbleroon and shampoo bar.
This bath bomb delight is the perfect Christmas (in July) gift. Complete with a sweet and refreshing blend of orange and lime oil, the Golden Wonder is the perfect uplifting concoction to lift you out of those winter blues this chilly season.
