Lush's christmas collection is their best to date, as far as I'm concerned, with a mix of their classics such as Snowfairy- a bit of a cult classic and some of their quirky ideas like the 'bearded woman' bath ballistic and their adorable 'gingerbread house'. Their complete holiday collection can be found on their website here.
I picked up one or two bits from their christmas stuff , so expect more festive Lush review in the run up to Christmas!
The matryoshka is technically a gift as you get a whole of goodies in it (but since it doesn't look like a classic christmas gift I think I can justify using this myself..)
Shaped like a russian doll and wrapped in a square of festive fabric, matryark consists of two large, hollow pieces of so white soap(which is anything but white..) which will make your whole room smell lovely, it also lasts forever as these chunks are huge!
Inside the green half you'll find CINDERS bath ballistic, the well know 'crackling' bath bomb!
Cinders was the one christmas item I was most excited about - the idea of the popping candy crackling away just sounded so festive. If anything I was worried the scent wouldn't be to my taste. As it was, I had a ton of popping candy yet none of it snapped, crackled or popped and the scent was the best bit!
It dropped to the bottom of the bath and after a little fizzing just sat there making the water a rather awkward yellow shade and making everything smell sweet.
Even turning the water on again didn't do much- I think I just got a dud one though as so many people love it.
And snuggled inside the other half of the russian doll is SO WHITE
This smelt gorgeous in the store and hasn't disapointed. It's fresh, fragrent and prefect as a little treat in winter. It delivers some creamy bubbles alongside a rich lather but the real selling point for this bath ballistic is the scent!
This is the only lush ballistic that not only made my whole bathroom smell amazing but the scent lingered on my skin for hours afterwards - which earned me a few compliments, and wasn't overpowering.
Overall for £9.95 this is a bit of bargain since you get three goodies; cinders, so white bath balistic and the so white soap. This is lovely, classic bath ballisitic which I think would be perfect for all age groups depite the quirky packaging!
