Here are six impending words you need to get crazy excited about an imminent road closure…The annual Stones Corner Christmas Market. Big, big yes! This year, on the 3rd day of Christmas you can expect just as much charm and entertainment as last year’s dazzling twilight street markets. Foodie friends, you have been notified. Come with your stomachs bare and your pockets fully lined!
I’ve only recently discovered the world of LUSH (I know, how can it be!?) and have yet to become a proud customer – however this special Easter release may (read: will) change that.
Instead of giving family and friends over-packaged, calorific chocolate eggs this year, treat them to a fabulous selection of LUSH’s new bath products made especially for Easter. All LUSH products are not tested on animals and are much kinder to the waistline and environment as the bath bombs, bubble bars and soaps are solid, which means they are preservative and packaging free.
This year’s offerings include brand new inventions as well as returning favourites, and gift packages that will have you dropping hints all over the place.
Here are just some of the new Easter-inspired products we should all be snapping up over the next few weeks…
The Golden Egg Bath Melt Ballistic ($6.50)
This one is a brand new invention that is inspired by chocolate cream eggs and contains an outer bath melt mix of LUSH’s fair-trade, organic, Colombian Peace Village cocoa butter and olive oil from a brand new permaculture project LUSH is working with in Palestine.
The Carrot Soap ($6.95 for 100g)
The new carrot-shaped soap with a bunny hiding in every slice is made with carrot oil to moisturise and cocoa butter to soften. The fragrance is a mix of fruit essential oils such as buchu, lemon and bergamot.
The Brightside Bubble Bar ($10.50)
The Brightside Bubble Bar is back this year for Easter and beyond, joining LUSH’s year-round range with its bright and colourful swirl. Scented with a trio of uplifting and invigorating oils including Sicilian mandarin, tangerine and bergamot oil with a squeeze of lemon. All you have to do is crumble the bar under the running tap and watch as the water turns into a hazy red and orange sunset with frothy white clouds of bubbles.
The Fluffy Egg Bath Ballistic ($5.50)
A sweet scented egg adorned with a candy flower, making you feel like you’re bathing in a bubbling mass of marshmallow, candy floss and jellybean scented water. It’s also completely vegan.
The Fab Wrap Knot Wrap ($5.95)
Inspired by Faberge eggs this fab wrap made from Greenspun is a special addition to the luxury gift-wrapping service at LUSH. Feel good as your goodies are wrapped in a fabric made entirely from recycled plastic bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill.
The Funny Bunny ($29.95)
Tied up inside this organic, cotton Knot-Wrap is a selection of limited edition Easter treats, including Carrot Soap (100g), Grass Shower Gel (100g), Green FUN and Olive Branch Shower Gel (100g). The organic cotton Knot-Wrap is from re-wrap, a women’s co-operative in India, making it the perfect gift for someone special this Easter.
