A COUPLE OF TREATS FROM THE LUSH WINTER/CHRISTMAS COLLECTION

The Lush Winter/Christmas collection has become one of my very favourite things about this time of year; they just come up with the cutest themes and the most beautiful smells - I genuinely become like a little child in a sweet store and have to calm myself and my heart palpitations down so that I don't end up buying quite literally the whole shop! I've been really enjoying seeing everyone share their purchases on Instagram and in blogs posts recently and I'd been working up quite the wishlist, so when payday (finally) arrived last Friday I couldn't wait to pop into my local store and pick up a couple of little treats #christmascountdown 
Peeping Santa Bubble Bar £3.95 - "Backloads of bubbles - full of fruity bergamot and floral geranium - burst forth when this cheeky Santa is crumbled under running water" This was top of my 'to-buy' list as I'm a huge fan of bubble bars and I just love how cute this is with it being like a santa belly :) I'm always drawn to the sweet smells in Lush and this was love at first sniff! I usually find I can get 3 or 4 baths from a bubble bar so I think they work out the best value for money and I can see myself having to repurchase this several times throughout November and December!!
Butterbear Bath Bomb £1.95 - "A creamy vanilla scented bath bomb with cocoa butter to soften the skin. Drop into the water for a bear hug" I tried this one just before Christmas last year and absolutely loved it, so I've been waiting almost a whole year to get my hands on another one! It's not a particularly exciting bath bomb as it just turns the water a kind of milky consistency, but oh my goodness me the smell *insert all of the heart eyed emojis* Vanilla and cocoa butter are two of my favourite scents (particularly for this time of year) and I love how this leaves the skin feeling super soft and moisturised; it's almost like a conditioner for a bath! At £1.95 it's a complete bargain and I absolutely love the name too - it makes me smile so much and how can anyone not love a cute little teddy bear bath bomb?! Bear hugs are the best hugs :)
Cinders Bath Bomb £2.95 - "Warm up with this hot fruit punch fragrance and listen to the cackle of popping candy. Drop into your bath for fireside comfort" I'm completely besotted with the smell of this one; to me it smells like winter in a bath bomb! I love cinnamon this time of year and my favourite Christmas candle is spiced apple and cinnamon so it always gets me feeling all festive :) I love the popping candy effect as it makes you feel all snug and like you're sitting next to a real fire, so it's super cosy and comforting. I do find some of the Lush bath bombs a tad pricey considering they can only be used once, but for £2.95 this one is super reasonable and I can't wait to give it a try when I have a good old pamper at the weekend!
Snow Angel Bath Melt £3.95 - "Rich in moisturising cocoa butter, with a delicate marzipan scent, this blend of rose, benzoin and cassie absolute treats winter skin to a softening, floral soak. Drop into your bath water to release a magical Christmas scene" This was my little indulgent purchase as it can only be used once so is a tad on the pricey side, but how blimim beautiful is it?! It smells absolutely divine and for a sweet smell lover like me it's complete heaven. I haven't used a bath melt before so I'm really excited to give this a try and I'll be sure to share a photo on Instagram when I do :)
