We know we haven’t even had the August bank holiday yet but we’re already getting excited about Christmas.
And it’s not because we want an excuse to drink Baileys before lunchtime, it’s because for the first time ever Lush has launched a 24-day advent calendar.
Last year the high-street bath bomb connoisseurs rolled out their first foray into seasonal calendars but only for 12 days.
This year we’ll be kept busy all month with vegan and cruelty-free products to make sure we smell like our best (s)elves when Father Christmas arrives. The products are stored in a reusable chest made from recycled materials.
These aren’t mini products either, behind each window is a full-sized Lush product including five retro products and even more limited edition goodies. You will be spoiled for choice (but might want to clean out the bathroom cupboards in preparation).
There is a catch: not only do they cost a hefty £195 (you could buy a lot of Dairy Milk calendars for that) it is limited edition so only 500 lucky people will be able to get their festive paws on one.
If you’re still interested you better act fast - they won’t be launched next season but on Thursday 29 August (the sign-up page is already up on the Lush website).
Suzie Hackney, Lush creative direction, said: “The drawers make this design really functional but you still have the traditional way of opening an advent – hunting for the number and having the excitement of revealing a new product every day.”
So, which products are included? (Warning, spoiler alert!)
Polar Bear Plunge Bath Bomb, Happy Shower Gel Fairytale Sugar Scrub, Night Bloom Soap, Snowflake Body Lotion, Golden Pear Glow stick, Midnight Massage Bar, Candy Cane Tooth, Jelly Sleepy Dust, Dusting Powder, Jingle Spells Bath Bomb.
