LUSH Christmas 2012 Haul & Reviews: Cinders Bath Bomb, Ponche Shower Gel, Popcorn Lip Scrub & The Melting Snowman Bath Melt

Sunday, 11 November 2012


Last weekend, I popped into LUSH to have a look at their Christmas range.  Although I shop at LUSH throughout the year, I always think that now is definitely the best time to go in and pick up some bits!  I have since tried out everything that I bought, so here are my reviews of the products.

 Cinders Bath Bomb (£2.25, link)

Cinders is a mainly orangey/fruity scented bath bomb combined with some spicy cinnamon.  It has popping candy in it which is meant to evoke an open crackling fire when placed into the water, but I didn't hear any crackling when I used it.  It dissolves super fast, and I was instantly hit with a gorgeous scent that smelt just like Christmas!  The scent doesn't last very long though which was disappointing, but if you're in the mood for a quick, warming soak (anything under 30 mins), then this would certainly be for you.  Cinders is much smaller than most of the bath bombs from LUSH which is reflected in its much more affordable price.   

 Popcorn Lip Scrub (25g, £5.25, link)

Popcorn has been a massive hit across the blogosphere - there's not a day that goes past where I haven't seen a blogger rave about it and I'm going to have a little rave about it too!  Simply put, it smells AMAZING.  If you hate everything that smells like LUSH, ask a friend to go into the shop and buy this for you - it will change your mind!  The lip scrub is mostly a simple blend of sugar, jojoba and coconut oil, and has this delicious burnt caramel scent and flavour.  I honestly can't stop sniffing this!  It makes my lips soft and smooth like the other LUSH Lip Scrubs do, and whilst it's pretty expensive for what it is, this 25g jar is going to last a while.  Unless I eat it that is! 

 Ponche Shower Gel (100g, £4.25, link)

Most years, I usually rush out to buy a bottle of Snow Fairy, that barbie pink, candy floss scented shower gel from LUSH.  But this year, the new Ponche shower gel has really won me over.  It's a lovely fruity and boozy scent that feels great to use in the morning when you're still half-asleep, and it fills my whole bathroom with its gorgeous scent.  I'm really tempted to go back and pick up a bigger bottle of this, but I might have to wait until the sales are on to stock up as it's on the pricey side (but it does smell so good!).   

The Melting Snowman Bath Melt (60g, £1.95, link)

Look at this little guy, how cute is he?!  Despite his adorableness, The Melting Snowman has caused some controversy amongst LUSH fans this year.  Last year, he was scented with the same fragrance as the Snowcake soap, but this year, he's been reformulated slightly and smells more like the Glogg shower gel from last year.  For me, I loved Glogg so I like this new Snowman, and he still smells very Christmassy.  The best thing about The Melting Snowman is that he's great for dry skin due to being made with shea and cocoa butter, so I'm always left feeling nicely moisturised afterwards.  Win win! 

Have you bought any of these, or anything else, from LUSH's Christmas range this year?

  1. I've got a review on the Popcorn scrub scheduled for tomorrow and I am completely in love with it, it's amazing! I liked the scent of Cinders, but nothing else about it really did it for me.

    I just picked up the Snow Fairy bubble wand, Blackberry bath bomb, Party Popper bath bomb and Golden Wonder bath bomb yesterday so looking forward to trying those out! x

    1. Popcorn is amazing isn't it? ! I like Cinders, but really wish the scent lasted longer in the bath. Looking forward to reading your LUSH reviews of those! :) x

  3. All of these look lovely! My flatmate picked up the melted snowman bath bomb and really liked it, I tend not to buy bath bombs but my skin is so dry at the moment that I might be able to justify it. I'm a massive fan of Lush's soap, I've recently got my hands on some Snow Globe soap and I'd highly recommend it :) x

    1. Definitely try out The Melting Snowman, it's really great for dry skin :) I'd also recommend Ceridwen's Cauldron from LUSH which is like bathing in silk! Is Snow Globe the green and white soap? I think I picked some of that up last year and really liked it. Will have to have another look at their soaps :) x

  5. I'm not really into Lush products. I like the odd bath bomb every once in a while but I'm tempted by Ponche. I'll have to have a sniff if I'm in town this week.

  8. I think I must be the only person in the world who cannot stand lush, the shop assistants are all very odd and just going in makes me itch so I would never dare to use the products. Your review of the popcorn lipscrub sounded great though, I chuckled at the part where you said send a friend in! that is a brilliant idea!

    1. Yeah some of the SAs are a little strange, I usually always get the most extroverted one in the shop lol! One of my best friends can't stand LUSH, so I bought her the Popcorn lip scrub and now she doesn't complain too much when I spend an entire afternoon browsing!

    1. Oh no! I've come across a few of those myself and have always walked out out of the shop - I don't like being bullied into buying something :(
      Hopefully there are some nicer staff in if you decide to give them another go :) x
