It’s the most wonderful time of the year indeed – LUSH Christmas products are launching online and in-store this Friday, 21 October.
Last week I had the opportunity to preview the products and meet co-founder and product developer Rowena Bird (Ro’s Argan was named for her. No biggie) at the new Cresta LUSH store. We have a GREAT selection this year so best be ready to do a spot of shopping this weekend. Also: LUSH Menlyn is opening this November so Pretoria girls, start stretching your shopping muscles!
I’m going to jump straight into the products – there are a whopping 43 of them. Let’s make this all about me and start with my favourite category – bubble bars. You’ll notice that the pics aren’t in my usual style, but I took them in-store with my phone while shoving people out of the way with my other hand like the rude cow that I am.

We got to pick four LUSH Christmas products to take home on the day and it was one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make in a while. I ended up choosing Bubbly shower gel, Christingle body conditioner (can’t resist minty things), and Jester and Magic of Christmas bubble bars. I can neither confirm or deny that there will be some shopping come Friday. If you’re after more pics and full product descriptions, head over here.
In addition to the single items above, there are gorgeously wrapped gift sets available starting at R195.
LUSH Christmas products will launch in phases from Friday, 21 October 2016 and they’ll be available online and in-store.
