Lush Sale Haul

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned before about my love of all things Lush, and one of my favourite places to hit in the Boxing Day sales is always Lush. Their Christmas stuff always goes to 50% off and as a massive fan of Snow fairy and candy mountain I couldn’t resist popping in when we went to Guildford on Sunday. I had tried to get on to the Lush website on Boxing Day but failed miserably, although looking at Twitter throughout the day it seems like I wasn’t the only one.

The store in Guildford is not massive so I knew it would be busy, and pretty much all of the gift sets had gone apart from a few snow fairy ones and the one I actually bought. A tin of butter bears. I have to say a massive thank you to fellow blogger Becky Bedbug who I actually spotted in Lush and after chatting to her for a little bit she persuaded me to buy it. I also picked up some bottles of snow fairy just to keep me going throughout the year.

I love the tin, it just screams Christmas to me! It’s green, red and gold with cute little bears all over it. Once I’ve used up all the bears I’m going to use it to store some of Clems things in. It’s too cute to just hide away until next Christmas. As soon as you open it you are greeted by 6 butter bears, all looking cute. I haven’t actually used one yet I really need to.

I also picked up a few candy mountain bubble bars as I love these. I am a sucker for any of the sweet-smelling things so this really appeals to me. I like to squash mine up so they last for longer but if you want a super bubbly bath then use the whole thing. It smells amazing, and makes my skin feel super soft, it also turns the water pink depending on how much you use. I’m glad I picked up a few of these.

I also couldn’t resist picking up a few bottles of snow fairy, just to keep me going through out the year, and another intergalactic bath bomb. An awesome mix of refreshing peppermint and neon colour and a bit of popping candy and glitter thrown in makes it seem like you are having a bath in space. I was surprised by the smell, I wasn’t sure if I would like it as it’s not my usual one but I really did.

As you can see the water went a lovely shade of blue, filled with glitter, just like being surrounded by stars. I will definitely be using this one again.

Did anyone else manage to grab a lush bargain in the sale? I’m a little bit sad I didn’t get more but then it’s probably good for my bank balance.

    I bought a load of Lush stuff before the sale then realised I should have waited! I love Butterbear it’s fab. I got a load of bath bombs… now I actually need to get around to having baths rather than showers! #MarvMondays

      Oh no that’s a shame! I love having baths, I don’t have them that often so it’s good to have something a bit special to put in them.x

    I bought some stuff online although only a couple of my favourite Golden Wonder bath bombs as most everything else was gone already. They’ve had terrible trouble with their online orders over the New Year too which is such a shame. I ordered my stuff on 30/12 and got an email yesterday saying it wouldn’t arrive until 10/1. I should have made the effort to go in store I guess!!!! Also Guildford is my nearest store too! #marvmondays

    Oh what a great Lush haul! We only discovered Lush a couple of months ago and the little lady absolutely loves thier stuff. I’m so gutted I didnt think to pop in and pick up a couple of sale bits for her. We’ve tried a couple of bits that you picked up – the butter bears are divine! Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays.
