Although it may feel like summer has barely begun, the Christmas season is starting to glimmer on the horizon thanks to the arrival of the Lush Advent Calendar.
It's the advent calendar of all advent calendars and the best gift money could buy if you're a Lush or bath fan. It literally promises a self-care day every day in the lead-up to Christmas. This calendar would get even the biggest Grinch into the festive spirit.
Every year brands such as Yankee Candle, Look Fantastic and Lush bring out heavenly advent calendars and this year’s Lush offering looks as good as ever.
Yes, you can already buy it and we recommend you do so sooner rather than later because this dreamy calendar will sell fast. Right now you can buy it online (UK delivery only) and the calendar will be available in stores from 23 September.
Lush, The Lush Advent Calendar 2021 | £185
We can already smell the cinnamon and pine fragrances of Christmas in the air—or it could just be the delicious scents coming from the Lush Advent Calendar.
It's reusable, 100% recyclable, cruelty-free and every one of the 25 products is vegan. Plus, you'll be smelling like a dream every day of December—and who doesn't want that?View Deal
You get 25 vegan body and bath products to help you avoid Christmas stress in the lead up to the big day and it also makes the perfect eco-friendly Christmas gift to yourself or a very lucky friend, as the packaging is made from 100% recyclable materials, including ribbon made from recycled drinks bottles—we love that!
And of course, Lush is a cruelty-free brand and against animal testing. The calendar comes in a beautiful reusable trunk and was designed by London-based designer Sally Kelly.
What's in the Lush Advent Calendar?
Now, if you’re hoping to treat yourself to one of these calendars or think you may get one as a gift, we’ll forgive you for not reading on—but taking a little sneak peek never hurt anyone.
Over the 25 days of December (or any 25 days from now—we won’t judge), you’ll be treated to a selection of festive shower gels, scrubs, bath bars, bombs, lotions and even a perfume.
Shower gel-wise, you’ll get 100g bottles of "Jolly," "Merry Christmas," and "Plum Duff." You’ll also get seven bath bombs including "Sleepy Bear," "Twilight" and some retro exclusives such as "Thundersnow" and "Cinders."
The calendar has six bubble bars, including one called "Cinnamon Roll" (yum!), a "Golden Pineapple" lip scrub, soaps, body lotions and even a "Keep It Fluffy" gift-size perfume!
