I did a little boxing day shopping in stores this year. Boxing Day in Canada (as well as other countries in the world) is December 26th, where there are tons of sales and deals in store. Let’s be honest, it makes you buy things you don’t really need, just because it is on sale. But that’s another discussion altogether. I kind of like boxing day shopping, but my patience wears thin. This year, I got sucked into the amazing sale at Lush stores – Buy one get one free!! I raced into the store, thinking that the entire store was BOGO, but of course, select items only. I can’t really recall, but the Popcorn lip scrub, selected gift sets, a specific bath bomb, and certain soaps were the only ones part of the sale. Regardless, it’s still a great sale because I was actually itching to try the lip scrubs that everyone raves about. But then I thought, buying a gift set would be an even amazing deal!
Now, if you recall in my last Lush post, I bought a gift set. So I chose two different sets. I ended up paying about $25 for both sets, or 6 items! What a deal! Now, onto the sets…
I’ve never tried Lush’s shower jelly before, but after reading reviews and instructions on the website, it sounds interesting. This smells so nice, going with the sweet, candy smelling theme of the gift set.
The Olive Branch Shower Gel smells incredible! It’s very fruity, which is the scent I tend to go for. It’s got an interesting colour, a dark orange gel mixed with a light orange gel. It’s pretty cool though, and I can’t wait to use it!
This Mr. Punch Soap is definitely fruity as well. It looks like a mix of jellos! So cool, definitely could be mistaken for a dessert, haha! This is a pretty large size of a soap as well, which makes me happy.
I actually have this Sandy Santa Sugar Scrub from a previous purchase, and I’m still in the midst of using it up! It smells lovely, you can definitely smell oranges and fruits, but it’s not overwhelming. This is a hefty size, as after the first use (where it melts soo much) it hardens and the next uses, it doesn’t really melt too much, and the sugar is quite abrasive to rub all over although I kind of like how it’s abrasive (it makes me feel like it’s actually scrubbing, y’know). I’m enjoying using this so far, so I’m glad to have a backup as it is limited for the season.
Have you gone Boxing Day shopping this year? What goodies did you get?
