Always wondered what was inside of one of the most sought after annual gift sets by Lush Cosmetics? Thanks to Lush and Vancouverscape, we got the chance to unbox the 12 Days of Christmas gift set containing 12 limited edition inventions for the holiday season.

Unboxing of the 12 Days of Christmas Gift set by Lush Cosmetics (love the golden theme of it all!)

Love And Light

Makes light work of moisturizing hands

Smells like a light citrus based on the combination of Brazilian orange, orange blossom and neroli within a fair trade organic cocoa butter cream.

Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb

Spicy, herbal bathtime celebrations

As I was trying to figure out which gifts to share with James, I was drawn to choose this bath bomb out of all of them because of its blend of patchouli and black pepper oil. I wonder how he will react with the fizzing and crackling as it melts into a bath?


Vanilla-scented bear hug

Going to something subtle and simple? There’s always a melty bear hug of Vanilla and Ylang Ylang with Butterbear.

Golden Wonder

Bathe in liquid gold with this uplifting bomb

Looking for a golden and glittery citrus explosion? Try the Golden Wonder to bathe in festive luxury.


Like those who miss a fireplace, you can also try Cinders for a close crackly effect with a sweet and spicy scent combo.

Dashing Santa

Ho ho ho to go

As another citrus scent-based bathbomb, maybe this can be something extra you add along with your hospitality gift of oranges during the holidays?

Yog Nog

Sweet toffee soaks

It’s many days before Christmas, and I have had 5 egg nog lattes already.
To save my poor tummy, I’m going to soak within a bath of Yog Nog instead.

5 Gold Rings

2015-LushChristmas-8857Why not a week long theme of golden glittery greatness… with 5 golden rings?

Snow Angel

Dissolves into a shimmering blanket of snow

Go glow in more golden softness with Lush’s Snow Angel.

Holly Golightly

Wrap yourself up in a cozy bath of bubbles

Switching it up from gold, bathe in a silvery bath of clove, cinnamon and patchouli.


Get up every morning with a smile on your face

Reading the label of how-to directions made me giggle. Yes, you can be clean and dirty at the same time, I see. Keeping it fresh with peachiness and apricots.


Creamy, almond-scented confection

Wrap it all up with a marzipan-inspired solid soap by Lush.
