Beauty: LUSH Boxing Day Sale Haul

January 2, 2016

So, 9.00am Boxing Day and I am sat in bed (with my kitten Dexter, of course) furiously refreshing the LUSH sale page over and over, only to be annoyingly faced with a 401, error, every. damn. time.

I think it took around an hour, and numerous tweets, before I got fed up and got dressed and booked my taxi into to town to see if I could grab any bargains in store. I wasn’t expecting miracles though, as by the time I got there it was around 11am already. Although there were not many gift boxes left, I still managed to spend £25 and picked up some right bargains.

As you can probably see, my philosophy was ‘pick up one of anything with a 50% off sticker on it…’

First of all, I got four Bath Bombs – Yog Nog, Luxury Lush Pud, Butterbear and Father Christmas.
There were quite a few bath bombs to choose from, however these were either ones I had been dying to try, or have loved previously. Yog Nog is an absolute fave of mine because it smells like Egg Nog  TOFFEE.

I used the Father Christmas bath bomb that night and it was AMAZING. It smelt so sweet, kind of like candy floss. Not a very festive scent in my opinion, but then again is Snow Fairy?! Either way, I don’t care, I love it!

I wish I’d picked up more bath melts, but the one I did manage to get was Snow Angel, which I am so happy about as I love LUSH melts that have cocoa butter in them. They always leave my skin feeling amazingly smooth. Not to mention, it was covered in gold glitter, so I didn’t really have to think twice about this one going in my basket.

Another Yog Nog purhcase, the Yog Nog soap. This is one of my favourite Christmas products and now every time I walk into my bathroom I can smell it. It’s like heaven, seriously. I picked up the biggest chunk left, of course, so I am hoping this at least gets me through until the Valentine’s Day launches are out.

I also picked up some Tooth Fairy strawberry tooth dust because why the hell not? It looked and smelt interesting and at 50% it was definitely an impulse purchase. Do I regret it? Of course not!

Finally, I got the Snow Fairy’s Castle gift set, for like £7 or something. This included some Snow Fairy Shower Gel (of course), a Magic Wand, the So White Bath Bomb and some Fairy Dust dusting powder. I am so pleased that this gift set was left when I got there, as it’s definitely the one I wanted in that price range, so happy!


What did everyone else get from the sale? Did you shop online or go in store? I’d love to see what you bought!

    Wow, so many amazing goodies! I didn't bother too much with the LUSH Sale this year as I got fed up of the website and I didn't fancy getting out of my pjs to head to town haha (which I'm regretting a little now), I did manage to pick up a couple of bath bombs in store a few days after – Yog Nog & Dashing Santa 🙂

    I didn't get anything in the LUSH sale this year! I couldnt get on the website and there was no way I was taking my pjs off on boxing day!!

    Enjoy your baths and I expect you will smell like snow fairy for a while!!

    I made a little purchase online but I wish I'd have gone into town instead of waiting literally HOURS to get on the website. But oh well I picked up some bargains so I guess that's a positive. I wish I'd have got my hands on Snow Fairy's Castle and Snow Angel – so jealous!

    You're so lucky getting bath bombs a few days after the sale starts, my store ran out on the day! Don't blame you for staying in bed though 🙂 xx

  • Kirsty C January 5, 2016 at 8:54 am

    I know I was so impressed! Wish I had spent more now though xx

  • Kirsty C January 5, 2016 at 8:54 am

    I can't get rid of the snow fairy scent in my bathroom and I LOVE IT! xx

  • Kirsty C January 5, 2016 at 8:55 am

    I couldn't bear sitting in front of a broken website any longer! So I had to get up! Glad you still managed to pick up some goodies though 🙂 xx

  • Kirsty C January 5, 2016 at 8:58 am

    I know, I love it!! xx
