Halloween and Christmas Fun at Lush Milton Keynes

Lush Milton Keynes

eeek! It’s beginning to look a lot like… yeap! It’s that time of year again and I am SO excited! I absolutely love any opportunity to party and have a little bit of fun.

I popped down to Lush in Milton Keynes the other day and found out all about their amazing Halloween and Christmas collections. I think you’re going to love them!

As always, everything is cruelty free and they said all the Christmas items this year are Vegan too! How fab is that! (Okay…that’s enough exclamation marks for the time being…)

I’ve always sung Lush’s praises, as not only are they proudly cruelty free (which EVERY beauty product should be!), they are one of the only companies out there to shout out about and stand up for various animal and human issues, whether that’s protesting, petitioning or selling products in aid of them. Go Lush! More companies should follow their path.

So, without further ado, say hello to Lush Halloween and Christmas 2017…

How fun do these Halloween goodies look!? If you’re heading off to a Halloween party this year or simply celebrating at home and waiting for those trick or treaters, I think it would be so fun to Halloween-up your bath time as you get ready!

Everything just looks so fun! I love the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb, which turns the water a beautiful purpley colour thanks to the lovely marshmallow pink and blue that fizzes out of this little monster. The scent of this little monster is lime and neroli, so yummy.

The cute little orange pumpkin is right up my street with cinnamon and vanilla scents, which are definitely faves of mine! This little guy turns your bath water bright orange too, how fun is that..!

To keep you “feline” fine on Halloween…ha, sorry. The Bewitched cat face bubble bar is probably the most fun of all…as it turns your bath black! I mean, if you can’t have a black bubble bath on Halloween, when can you? This little fella smells like blackberry and contains olibanum oil (sweet and woody smelling) and bergamot.

Glitter lover? Lush have you covered too! If you’re a glitter lover through and through, then you will love the full-on glittery pumpkin bubble bars available in both orange and pink. The orange one features juniperberry oil, lime oil and grapefruit oil. Whereas the cute little pink pumpkin contains geranium oil, bergamot oil and jasmine absolute. You can’t deny that these little pumpkins look so glitzy and fun!Lush Halloween 2017

Lush Christmas 2017

I am 100% Christmas crazy! I love it! I’ve already bought presents and planned a whole load more. I’m getting super prepped for it this year so I can enjoy the festivities later this year stress free and organised.

Every year for as long as I remember, I have always bought myself a lush bath bomb to use on Christmas morning. It’s one of my favourite Christmas Day traditions! And at this Lush Milton Keynes blogger event I bought a few little lovelies, so I will have plenty to choose from and enjoy…I’m sure I’ll pop back for more too!

Of course, it’s no surprise to hear that Snow Fairy is back once again, ready to make your festive months pink and sweet smelling! However, there’s something very cool and new for Snow Fairy this year …she’s got naked!

Yeap. Lush being the fab eco-friendly people they are, have come up with a clever little thing called “naked”. Created with ingredients very close to those that are used to create the shower gel, these little naked shower gels don’t need the plastic bottle! They lather up just as well and you simply pop them down and let them dry out ready for next time. Naked shower gels don’t contain a soap base, so you needn’t worry about that side of things – they’re just simply super duperly clever and eco-friendly. Love it!

If you’re intrigued and have further questions about how it all works, they’ve written a handy guide to their naked shower gels here: https://uk.lush.com/article/naked-shower-gel-dont-you-mean-soap …you can find out who else has gone naked on their website too!

Doesn’t it all just look so …Lush!? It’s all so gorgeous, beautiful smelling and cruelty free – nothing can get better than that surely?

As mentioned earlier, Christmas at Lush is Vegan this year! So that’s a big plus. And, as always, they have spoiled us with a plethora of stunning products, there really is something for everyone!

This gal recommends…

The Berry Berry Christmas shower gel (this one is also available naked!) …this gel smells so divine and features cranberry, olive leaf absolute and sweet wild orange oil. What struck me about this shower gel before I even smelt it was the colour! It’s a beautiful glittery green colour, looking dark green in the bottle and a brighter green once you apply it to your skin. It’s stunning.

One of my favourite Lush bath bombs is the Butterball. If you love it like me, then the little Butterbear you can see just above here is for you! Filled with fair trade cocoa butter, ylang ylang oil and cocoa powder, this little guy will leave your skin smelling and feeling pretty damn delightful. I can’t wait to use mine this Christmas!

I’d also recommend giving the Luxury Lush Pud a sniff when you next pop in. I grabbed one of these as it looks and smells so lovely! This little pud contains lavender oil, benzoin resinoid (which is anti-inflammatory and protective), Tonka absolute and ylang ylang oil.

I popped the Christmas Sweater bath bomb into my basket too, as the scent of this is just so lovely, spicy and warming. With ginger powder, clove bud oil and coriander seed oil…this is a must-smell! I dare you not to walk away with this one!

So there you have it, a little taster of what is instore right now at Lush in Milton Keynes (found in the intu Milton Keynes shopping centre).

Thank you to the Lush team for inviting me down to check it all out, the evening was so fun!
