LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas 2016 review

The LUSH 12 Days of Christmas is back again and I am so glad I got my hands on it this year! For $99 CAD you get 12 full-sized products from LUSH, everything from shower gels to soap bars to bath bombs. ALL products in here are from the Christmas collection, so this is the best way to try out LUSH’s seasonal goodies!

The “hat” box this comes in is humongous. It’s shaped like a clock and comes wrapped with a green ribbon.

Once opened, you’ll see a plethora of packing peanuts (be careful if you have a cat because they LOVE to eat these things). There are six sections in this box with two products in each.

SPOILERS! Here is everything you get! The only thing I don’t like about how it’s packed is you can see some of the colours from bath bombs and bubble bars rubbing off on each other, like poor little Butterbear on the left.

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Shoot for the Stars bath bomb

Shoot for the Stars Bath Bomb
This will turn your bath into the night sky with blue waters and lots of gold glitter (and yes, you will get glitter tub ring). The scent is a mix of brazilian orange and bergamot with a base of organic cocoa butter.

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb

Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb
A mix of lavender and tonka that practically puts me to sleep in the bath. I’m not even kidding. This was one of my faves from last year.

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Golden Wonder bath bomb
Golden Wonder Bath Bomb
Ready for a party in your bathtub? This really smells like a cognac and lime cocktail, and when the fizzy bomb gets going, it unwraps to reveal gold and turquoise glitter dust inside. It’s what I call the Ke$ha surprise.

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Butterbear Bath Bomb

Butterbear Bath Bomb
Oh this little guy has seen better days. This is probably the most delicious-smelling bath bomb of them all with a mix of cocoa butter and vanilla. (This is also the most hydrating and leaves my skin feeling super soft).

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Candy Mountain Bubble Bar

Candy Mountain Bubble Bar
If you want to smell like creamy candy, crumble this cutie bubble bar under running water and go for a soak. This is a lot like the Snow Fairy scent only with even MORE vanilla.

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Candy Cane Shower Roulade

Candy Cane Roulade
I believe this is new for 2016. This is essentially a soap bar made with soy milk, almond oil and cocoa butter with the scent of candy canes! And who doesn’t want to smell like a candy cane?

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Baked Alaska soap

Baked Alaska Soap
I’ve grabbed this soap for the past couple years and loved it every time (it usually ends up on sale during the Boxing Day event). This neon wonder smells like lemons, grapefruit and ylang ylang. It’s tart with a hint of sweet.

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Fireside Soap

Fireside Soap
Clove and vanilla dance together in this blend. I haven’t had a chance to use this, but on first sniff, it seems nice and kind of reminds me of putting cloves into oranges as decoration (did you ever do that???)

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Bubbly Shower Gel

Bubbly Shower Gel
This smells like straight-up fresh oranges, more like walking through an orange grove than fake orange scent too. It has a base of vine leaf infusion which really helps soften and smooth skin.

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Twilight shower gel

Twilight Shower Gel
If you’re a Lushie like me, the return of Twilight Shower Gel is a momentous occasion. This lavender and vanilla scent is to die for. Sadly, I can’t find this solo on the LUSH site, but hopefully it’s just coming soon?

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Sleepy Hand Body Lotion

Sleepy Hand and Body Lotion
Speaking of Twilight, this lavender and tonka scented lotion smells a lot like it. New this year, Sleepy is a nice cocoa butter lotion that will make your skin feel like velvet.

LUSH Cosmetics 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar review Snow Fairy body conditioner

Snow Fairy Body Conditioner
SO MUCH YES! If you’ve been on this blog before, you know Snow Fairy season is my most favourite. I’ll be layering this candy-scented lotion underneath my (old school) Snow Fairy Perfume and Fairy Dust powder to get that full-on candy scent. The formula for this is a cherry, mango and avocado and cocoa butter mix and as good as it smells, it also makes skin ridiculously soft.

All this for just under $100? That’s a freaking steal! Grab the 12 Days of Christmas as soon you can because it always sells out.
