Christmas Gift Guide: Lush and Philosophy Holiday 2010 Gift Sets

It’s almost November so it’s time to think about Christmas gifts! Here are some of the sets from Lush and Philosophy that are already available. There are so many other sets by these brands and here are just those that I’ve chosen.

12 Days of Christmas, £34 95

A gift to help you celebrate right up until the Epiphany. It’s a large gift box for bathers, with twelve bath products to help them celebrate bathtime as the Lords are a-leaping, geese a-laying and the maids a-soya milking. For the twelve days of Christmas, my true Lush gives to me… Snow Globe and Mandarin’s Tea Party soaps; five Bath Ballistics with So White, Cinders, Satsumo Santa, The Böög and Winter Bath; you also get sweetly spicy Gingerbread House, our fabulously floral Christmas Eve, softening Bearded Lady and creamy Candy Cane Bubble Bars.

Christmas Candy Box, £19.95

This box of treats is perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth. We’ve put in our most alluring candy products with the ever-popular Snow Fairy shower gel, Rock Star and Honey I Washed the Kids soap and Candy Cane Bubble Bar; and joining that foursome, we’ve added Bubblegum lip scrub and our new Snow Fairy lip tint to keep your lips sweet.

Chillin’ With My Gnomeys, £6.50

A perfect little giftbox for gnomes, elves and everything in between. Inside, there are two citrusy products for the bath or shower, with refreshingly vibrant Whoosh shower jelly and our new zesty Snow Globe soap for hands and bodies. You won’t feel the chill of winter with this gift in your bathroom.

Winter Garden, £29 95

Lathering up in a Winter Garden might sound like an outrageous and cold idea, but it’s designed to polish up your body in the shower, so that you’re in good shape when winter settles into the garden and everywhere else.

Wonderful Christmas Time, £99.50

A wonderful Christmas time is sure to be had by all who are

Elemis Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow. Review and Photos

One more thing that I’ve been loving by Elemis besides their Exotic Frangipani Monoi Moisture Melt is the Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow. This product won several awards and I’ve heard so many raves about it so today I will tell you my opinion.

So this is what is written about this product:

“The Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow is the ultimate exfoliation ritual for smooth, glowing skin from top to toe. Invigorating Ginger stimulates the metabolism and tones the body, whilst Lime Peel cleanses and purifies the skin. Sea Salt exfoliates and remineralises, helping the skin to regain its health and softness.”

The key ingredients are:

  • Camellia
  • Ginger
  • Jojoba
  • Kukui
  • Lime Peel
  • Sea Salt

And this is why I like it and how it looks inside:

New Elemis Pro-Intense Eye and Lip Contour Cream

This month the luxury British brand Elemis launched new Pro-Intense Eye and Lip Contour Cream.

And here is what is written about it:

“A rich textured cream containing active plant stem cells from Edelweiss that works with the skin’s natural function at the ‘dermal-epidermal junction’ level to protect the shape of skin cells, tighten the collagen network and hydrate evenly throughout the day.”

The Pro-Intense Triple Effect is designed to:

  1. Redensify
  2. Plump
  3. Firm

The price of this new products is £57.00 but only now you can get the set which also includes a FREE full size Absolute Eye Mask (worth £27) for £57.00 !

Skin Type: All, Mature.

And I personally would recommend you getting the

Lush Products for Bath:Review and Photos

Although I made several posts about Lush already I never really shared my opinion. I also never shared my opinion about any MAC products because there are already TOO MANY reviews about these brands. But I guess it’s time to brake the rules and bring you some reviews about Lush and MAC Cosmetics (in the future).

Do you want to know what I got?

This time I’ve got only 5 products because I want to visit Lush again very soon. I’ve already made the list of what to get 😉

I got :

1. Mmm Melting Marshmallow Moment £3.50

Slow melting musky marshmallow marvel. MMM melts into a pink, fluffy waterbed of marshmallow and moisturizing cocoa butter. Each Melting Marshmallow Moment is made with marshmallow herb, which produces a sweet, skin-soothing mucilage that was used to make sugar candies for hundreds of years, and marigold, which is equally calming for your skin. Take your time, savour each moment and have as many marshmallows as you like.

2.Sex Bomb,£2.95

Jasmine, clary sage and ylang ylang to make you feel like a love goddess. The power of these aphrodisiac oils lies in their ability to relax you at the same time as warming your heart and other body parts. The ancient perfumers of the Mediterranean knew a thing or two about lurve and we’re using the methods they used thousands of years ago for the same results. Whether you want to be calm for a big night out or a quiet night in, prepare to detonate a Sex Bomb.

3.Dreamtime Bath Melt, £2.90

Skin softening, soothing and sleep-inducing melt. Guess when you should drop this luxuriously creamy block into the water? Bedtime! It may look small, but its secret strengths lie in its scent. The Dreamtime causes your worries to fade away with jasmine, lavender calms your head and sandalwood relaxes your limbs, so use it whenever you need a good night’s sleep, soft skin and sweet dreams.

4. Wee Harry, £2.95 with one eye, lol

Elf and safety warming! A warm, spicy bubble bath inspired by warm, spicy Scandinavian drinks. (And elves.) When you visit a Luh shop, you’ll notice that Wee Harry has a diffrent name, but don’t worry: he’s still the same Christmas elf. We realised that every culture has its yuletide elf named different.

5. Sea Vegetable,£2.75

A refreshing splash in the ocean. Sea Vegetable is made with seaweed, one of our favourite ingredients, with a crust of stimulating sea salt to give your body a good scrub down. It smells of lime, lavender and seaweed, a bit like sitting at the beach next to someone applying suntan lotion. This is a great soap for sharing amongst the whole household. The scent is perfectly balanced for boys and girls everywhere.

Candy Cane Bubble Bar

Vegan

Sweet as candy and twice as bubbly.

Whilst realising that a stick of baking soda and cream of tartar doesn’t sound quite as appealing as a stick of sugar, we think you’ll change your mind once you see Lush’s Candy Cane. Making another popular comeback, our pink and white swirled stick of solid bubble bath brings froth and fragrant bubbles to your tub. It gives a soothing scent of vanilla sweeties to a Christmas stocking and makes your skin lickably soft. Let’s just repeat the annual warning: do not eat it.

Christmas Eve

Escape from seasonal stresses with a soothing, deep blue bubble bath Perfect for Christmas Eve.

Ruby Red Slippers

Vegan

Sparkling, ruby red bubble bath with a bewitching fragrance of rose and carnation.

At Christmas there’s no place like Lush (and we’re sure Toto would agree). Grab yourself a pair of Ruby Red Slippers and work some powerfully foaming magic on the bathwater. This calming, skin-toning potion of carnations, tangerines and roses makes your body feel and smell bewitching. Munchkins can break a bar in half and get two little baths for the price of one. (Younger Lush fans: if you haven’t a clue what we’re talking about, watch The Wizard of Oz when it’s shown over the holidays and see where we got the name).

StarMelt

Melt into a bath of sugar sweetness. The icing on the cake for Snow Fairies.

Want to Believe

Is it coal? Is it candy? No, it’s a refreshing Luxury Bath Melt to restore your faith in Yuletide.

Wee Harry

Elf and safety warming! A warm, spicy bubble bath inspired by warm, spicy Scandinavian drinks. (And elves.) When you visit a Luh shop, you’ll notice that Wee Harry has a diffrent name, but don’t worry: he’s still the same Christmas elf. We realised that every culture has its yuletide elf named different.

Angels Delight Soap

Vegan

Fruity seasonal special soap for angels and the rest of us. Once again, the Angel floats to earth for Christmas (but ours isn’t planning to make any surprise announcements to innocent young virgins). Angels Delight soap is a translucent, glycerine soap in bright pink, with interestingly coloured celestial (soap) bodies and a scattering of stars. We’re reliably informed by our customers that it smells of jelly beans; we actually put toning tangerine and orange essential oils in it to give it a heavenly, fruity scent.

Father Frost

Inspired by chilling Russian folk tales, perfumed with fragrant flowers.

This beautiful new soap which looks like midnight and smells like a garden of scented blossom. It has a spookily serious fairy tale as its inspiration, involving a woodcutter, a wicked stepmother, a good daughter, a bad daughter and Father Frost, the Lord of Winter, who can freeze people to death with one icy breath. (We’ve created his portrait in icy soap on the top of each huge block.) Father Frost’s story is a morality tale. Be unselfish and you will be rewarded, perhaps with unexpectedly large pieces of Christmas soap, made with apple juice and cranberries. Be greedy and grasping, and no-one will want to buy you a lovely rose and geranium scented soap for Christmas.
