LUSH SANDY SANTA REVIEW




Hi lovelies! I feel like it's been ages since I've blogged, 5 days feels like a long time as so much has been going on! I hope you've all had an amazing Christmas, I know I did! It's strange when it's all over, as there's so much build up and then it's just finished. So, of course, to banish the post Christmas blues, some shopping in the sales is always on the agenda. So today, I'm going to be reviewing something that I think you should all add to your 'must buy in the sales' list.

The product in question is the gorgeous 'Sandy Santa' bar from Lush. Lush Christmas items are notorious for selling out almost instantly in the sales and this little cutie has already sold out online, but if you manage to track one down in a Lush store near you, it's definitely worth a go, as it's now half price and just £2.25. I actually picked this up right at the beginning of the Christmas period and am now on my second one as I love it so much!

Sandy Santa is a sugar scrub bar, with a 'built in' body lotion. You use it kind of like a bar of soap and rub it straight onto your skin, concentrating particularly on any rough patches. It feels quite abrasive on the skin and you can definitely feel it working, however due to the rich moisturising body butter in it, it leaves your skin seriously soft and smooth - so you won't feel like you've been in the ring with a scourer! I use this particularly on the backs of my arms, as I get those annoying little bumps and dry patches on the backs of my arms. This however does an incredible job of getting rid of those, it buffs away any dry skin and replaces lost moisture in the process - amazing!

As I said, this is sold out online, but if you do manage to find one in a Lush store, it's definitely worth picking up, particularly if your skin suffers during the winter.

    1. It did make me feel bad, particularly when the red from his hat started running everywhere making it look like I'd brutally murdered poor santa! xx

  5. I really wish I'd gotten one of these! I made a fairly sizeable order from the LUSH sale this year but this little dude was all sold out. Is there anything comparable to it that's in stock all year? Thank you!

  8. This sounds amazing - a scrub and a lotion all in one cute little bar! :-)

    I actually don't know my way around LUSH products that well atm so I'm going to be trying to find out more about them in preparation for next year's sales! I didn't manage to get anything from LUSH this year as my shop was so packed on Boxing Day! xx
