Lush Boxing Day Sale Haul // 2013

As usual Lush left it until Boxing Day to surprise us with this years 50% sale, all Christmas items and items made up to a stated date. I don't have the privilege of a Lush store in my home town so I decided to make my first Boxing Day - Lush Sale order and thank god I checked early morning. By the time their sales email hit my inbox the already small selection had become minute. Going back 4+ years (possibly more, I feel old) ago you could hit Lush stores in January with plenty of stock still hanging around along with them giving it away via lucky dips.

First to hit the basket were two 500g bottles of Snow Fairy, though as I hit checkout they were no longer available. Then came the battle to add four 250g bottles of the liquid fairy dust into the basket before they too sold out. With the large array of Soap and Glory products purchased in the sales and received for Christmas I'm going to smell pretty incredible for the next year. The four bottles came to a total of £13.72, ridiculously cheap Snow Fairy to keep both myself and Mamma Writes going until October when the fairy graces store shelves yet again.

I was obviously still half asleep and therefore restrained when it came to ordering Boxing Day morning...only one of each item were next placed into the basket. This year saw A LOT of new additions to the beloved Christmas range with Honey I Washed The Kids scented Shoot For The Stars (£1.62) bath ballistic transforming bath waters into a deep violet lagoons complete with shimmer. I'm disappointed I didn't order more since the alternative and all year round classic, Honey Bee bath bomb always leaves my bath gritty. Another Christmas classic to enter my basket was the ever gentle and soothing Snowman bath bomb retailing in the sales for £1.25, again he can be found as Butterball all year round. Leaving bath bombs behind I made sure to grab one Christmas Eve bubble bar and one The Christmas Penguin bubble bar. No Christmas is complete without ordering my Mum her Christmas Eve bubble bars so at the sale price of £1.47 no sale order would be complete! My new ultimate Christmas bubble bar The Christmas Penguin was also on sale for £1.47, as I had already received a few the previous day I took the sensible approach and again ordered just one of the cheeky chaps. If you too became hooked on this little guy, grab a bottle of The Olive Branch shower gel for the exact scent and pair with Big Blue for the turquoise tropics!

  1. Wow I love Lush, but didn't think to check the site for sale items. Oh well there's next year and I got loads for Christmas yay. Snow Fairy is the actual best.

  2. I got the Christmas candy set, a bottle of flying fox, a penguin and a melting snowman - I wanted more but I was very well behaved - I have never bought anything other than a lip scrub from lush - I've had bath bombs in the past but many many years ago so I am so excited to try out some things now - It only got posted today so feels like it's been forever since I ordered! (I was on early on boxing day, too, seeing things come in to stock and go back out of stock.... was like a gamble, waiting until something new was added and hoping the other things disappear in that time!)
