Well it is a little late, just a little,but one of my lovely Christmas gifts was a gift box from Lush. I have a great selection of Lush boxes and or tins, collected over the past few years. I love these boxes but I REALLY love the contents
This year’s,lip salve,lip tint, Lushious box had the Twelve Days of Christmas theme and inside was divided into Twelve compartments. In theory, and if I’d had the time, it is designed to be a treat for each of the festive twelve days. In truth, life has just achieved a level of normality, and I can finally enjoy this treat to its full.
I have used nearly all of the shower gel called Lord of Missrule. It’s doesn’t fail as a gorgeous, soapy treat, lovely,Lush shower gel. The Hair conditioner has yet to be tested but smells delightful. There are lip tints and lip salves both well used. The box, which fastened with a luxurious ribbon also contained some divine soap, hand treatment and body lotion.
This gift didn’t fail to be an extreme Lush indulgence. All of the contents are fabulous and can’t fail to please. No wonder I’m a lovely Lush Granny!!
The day got off to a pretty good start today! When I opened my emails I had an invite to a “VIP Bloggers Event, Chester Lush” on Sunday next. Wow! This should be really good and I will report back to you eventually.
The invitation prompted me to sort out my current Lush Stash. I am a fan of Lush products as you can see, and have some gorgeous shower gels and lovely creams. You don’t get this gorgeous without some effort you know! When I was setting up the photo shoot some shells crept into the picture as you can see. I had already been sorting out shells for a future craft project. ( actually looking for ones with holes-strange as it may seem!)
I store these shells in a vintage glass globe on the bathroom window sill. Now what was really strange was when I delved into the shell collection they were all glued together in the bottom of the globe with a dried out gloop! It seems that in the past I put either Lush soap and or bath bombs into the shell collection! These Lush products must have melted with a combination of sun and condensation and sank to the bottom of the glass.
The only way that I could get the shells out was to run hot water into the globe. The smell was GORGEOUS. I couldn’t pick the globe up as it was heavy, slippy and smelling lovely. I had to keep running water into the container until all of the Lush product had dissolved and rinsed away! The shells came out and smell delightful.
The glass globe, complete with shells, is now back in its rightful place in the bathroom. The shells with holes through them have been removed and Lush products returned to the shower. Happy Days!
