You know it's almost the holidays when these goodies start arriving! I know I'm not the only one excited about this, so here goes: the new LUSH Christmas collection for 2018 is here!
I'll admit it. I'm one of those people who starts counting down to the release of the new LUSH Christmas collection as soon as summer ends.
The new holiday collection includes bath bombs, sparkle jars, lip scrubs, and (of course) the famous LUSH advent calendar.
This year, the line launched in mid-October, and some items are already out of stock online – so things are really in high demand. If you want to pick up a few gifts or score some treats for yourself, you might want to shop as soon as you can. Who knows how long everything else will be available?
To help you figure out exactly where to start, we compiled a list of some of the best goodies included in this year's LUSH Christmas collection. You'll find prices, scents and more – so take a peek!
Standouts from the LUSH Christmas collection
I honestly couldn't believe how long it took me to scroll through the new Christmas collection at LUSH Canada, and that means one thing: there are TONS of goodies this year! The line includes both holiday classics and some brand-new items, so you might spy a few old favourites on this list.
Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb ($6.95) – LUSH brought back this classic for 2018 – but it has a new twist. The Luxury Lush Pud now has a blackcurrant scent that's the same as their Comforter Bubble Bar. So fill the bathtub with warm water, kick back and enjoy!
Santa Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb ($9.95) – No, that's not a typo. This "Bomb Bomb" is two bath bombs in one (also known as a double-fizzer). It's cola-scented, and you can use both bath bombs at once or separate them and enjoy two baths. The choice is yours.
Cinders Shower Gel ($9.95) – If you love a good PSL, this might be the shower gel for you. It has strong notes of orange and almond oils (plus maple syrup!), as well as hints of cinnamon, clove clove, nutmeg and pumpkin seeds. It's basically fall in a bottle, which sounds like heaven.
Sleepy Shower Gel ($9.95) – Here's something completely new. Sleepy is a shower gel that's infused with lavender oil and tonka to help you calm down and relax after a long day. It's available in bottles or naked packaging, and I have to say, it's probably perfect for people who shower at night.
Snow Fairy Shower Gel ($9.95) – This one is a Christmas classic. Of course LUSH had to bring back the Snow Fairy Shower Gel! It has a sweet, bubblegum fragrance, and it comes with a little bit of plastic-free shimmer – so those fluffy, pink bubbles we all love will sparkle, too.
Shoot for the Stars Bath Bomb ($6.95) – Here's a limited-edition fizzer that can help you wake up during the dull winter months. Just drop one into the bath, and it will fill your tub with the colours of the night sky – and a fresh Brazilian orange oil scent.
Perle de Sel Bath Bomb ($6.95) – Doesn't this look elegant? This bath bomb features pearls of coarse sea salt (hence the name), and it's perfect for creating a luxurious soak. All you need to do is lie back and relax while the delicate rose scent washes over you and the salt helps soften your skin.
Cheery Christmas Bath Bomb ($5.95) – This bath bomb might turn your water calming shades of pink, purple and blue, but it's full of fresh Sicilian lemon oil to help wake you up! Plus, it's made with lotion that will do wonders for dry, cracked winter skin.
Holey Night Bath Bomb ($6.95) – Have I got a pun for you. This take on a Christmas classic will leave your skin lightly scented with rose, sandalwood and lemon and feeling extra soft even after you leave the tub. And I guarantee you'll love these colours.
Golden Wonder Bath Bomb ($6.95) – This little gift has been around for years, and somehow, I still have never tried one. It smells like cognac and lime, so it's pretty much a cocktail for your bathtub. So why not make yourself one to enjoy when you go for a soak?
Snow Fairy Jelly Bomb ($6.95) – Forget traditional bath bombs. This one turns your bathwater into jelly! Well, technically, it creates a frothy, foamy layer for you to relax in – and it's scented just like all the other famous LUSH Snow Fairy products.
Candy Cane Reusable Bubble Bar ($5.95) – Bubble bars might be some of my favourite LUSH goodies, and this one is all dressed up for the season. Like they say on the website, it's the answer to "What's red and white and can be used over and over?"
World's Smallest Disco Bath Bomb ($7.95) – Okay, this is just cute. Instead of lighting up a dance floor, this fizzer spins around your tub to reveal all different colours and the scents of lime and grapefruit to help you get your party started – even if you're just having a night in.
Yog Nog Yule Log Bubble Bar ($6.95) – This bubble bath comes with a fun name! It's full of festive scents, like clove, cinnamon and nutmeg, and it does wonders to soften your skin with cocoa and shea butters. Just act fast, because this is only here for a limited time.
Some of the best LUSH Christmas Gifts
If you're already shopping for Christmas presents, there's something for just about everybody at LUSH Canada. Their latest holiday line includes dozens of wrapped gifts and boxed gift sets in almost any scent you can think of. Prices range from $10.95 to $389.95 – so you can definitely find one that fits the bill. Just try not to hoard them all under the tree for yourself!
Berry Christmas ($10.95) – Looking for a Secret Santa present? This Berry Christmas gift steps up the classic Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb by adding a new twist – it's wrapped in a limited-edition scarf you can wear or reuse to carry more bath bombs the next time you shop.
Joy To The World ($16.95) – Soothe your dry skin this winter with a dynamic duo of the rich, chamomile Dream Cream Body Lotion and one of my new favourite LUSH products: their cocoa butter-rich Golden Pear Soap. They're both gentle on the skin, too!
Christmas Present ($39.95) – If Elle Woods from Legally Blonde created her own gift set, it might be this one. The five-piece set includes gifts in all different shades of pink, including their Cranberry Fizz Lip Scrub that you'll definitely want to use before you step under the mistletoe.
Meet Me Under The Mistletoe ($99.95) – This set is all about luxury. There are 12 LUSH holiday favourites in here that you can use before, in and after your shower – including my absolute must-have, a naked "pot" of their creamy Charity Pot lotion.
Wow ($389.95) – As LUSH says, "size really does matter" – especially when it comes to Christmas gifts – and this one is their biggest gift set yet. It's packed with DOZENS of products to check off your Christmas list, including bubble bars, soaps and bath bombs.
The LUSH Advent Calendar for 2018
Every year, LUSH Cosmetics releases what might be THE most popular beauty advent calendar in the country. People wait months for the LUSH Advent Calendar, and the 2018 one is finally available! It's called the 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar, and it comes packed with 12 themed goodies to help you count down to Christmas (or any holiday, really).
If you like to keep your advent calendars a surprise and open one treat a day, you might want to scroll down a little further. LUSH released a full list of everything in this year's 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar, so we figured we would include it. If you're curious, there's a LOT of bath bombs!

This is by far the most anticipated product at LUSH Canada every single year, so it's no surprise that it initially sold out online. Lucky for us, though, it's back in stock! Want to get your hands on one? I'd try to act fast – or head to one of the LUSH stores in Canada if it sells out online again.
If you don't manage to find one, don't fret. There are still plenty of LUSH Christmas gifts in stock online (just check the full list out above) and tons of beauty advent calendars to go around.
