[unpaid/sample] I don’t see Lush products very often but have to say that if you are a Lush fan this bright and bountiful box is something quite splendid. It’s not really a brand that I align with but they came to my attention for shedding over 100 products that they didn’t see as essential to the brand. This is what so many brands should be doing – not over-producing in a never ending cycle of newness and ceasing to produce products for the sake of keeping them going. I know that the brand can elicit controversy but I can’t fault their eco credentials, especially when it comes to packaging reduction – thinner bottles for one, but all that nesting that you see in the box is totally reusable or recyclable and allows for less protective packaging for the products within the calendar.
Every single part of this calendar is recyclable – I love the colours and the vibrancy of it. It’s a very joyful thing to look at. When it comes to contents, it’s all the things that Lush fans would want to find, from their best selling Dream Cream through to Candy Cane Lip Balm in a mix of festive and practical products.
The window sheet sits over the nested boxes and you perforate them to get inside – you can lift them easily to reveal the carefully hidden products.
The thing that Lush fans will get excited about with this advent calendar is the re-appearance of some retro products that you can only get in the box and box exclusives such as Christmas Morning Bubble Bar, Marzibain Bubble Bar and Cinders Shower Gel (smells almondy – not overpowering).
Bath bombs? Yes, indeed! But only three and they’re fun. You’ll also find a candle, a fragrance, body lotions and soap but the main emphasis is on washing – bath and shower are strong in this calendar. It’s quite pricy at £195 (and interestingly, they don’t give a ‘value’ price so I don’t know if this represents better value for money than buying the products individually) and of course, it’s completely vegan. There’s a full list of contents below but if you’re liking the look of it, it’s HERE.
