LUSH Christmas: Yog Nog & So White

I've always said that nobody does the holidays quite like LUSH. The huge range of Christmas-themed products available, plus all the fun colours, shapes, and scents really shows how much the people at LUSH must love this time of year. Today, I'm talking about two limited-edition products to get clean with: So White shower gel and Yog Nog soap.

LUSH So White shower gel review

So White shower gel is new to the LUSH Christmas line-up; it's the shower gel version of the apple-scented So White bath bomb. The description features rose water, bergamot, neroli, and "mouthwatering apple". These are all scents I love, so I was really looking forward to trying it. Surprisingly, the scent is extremely mild. I actually had to cup my hand full of shower gel to my nose in order to smell anything. While I do get a nice fresh apple scent, I didn't really pick up the bergamot and neroli I was originally excited about. The texture was also a bit runnier than other LUSH shower gels I've tried in the past; this might be because of the addition of apple cider vinegar and apple juice. The texture isn't a good or bad thing for me, just an observation. I'm not in love with this one, but it might be nice for those that find LUSH's other shower gels too overwhelming in scent.

LUSH Yog Nog soap review

For some people, egg nog is one of the best things about the holidays (bf is one of these people)--this soap is made for them. Although I'm not big on egg nog, I absolutely loved the comforting, slightly spicy, creamy scent in a soy yogurt base. It doesn't bubble up as well as other LUSH soaps, but it makes up for it with a pleasantly creamy texture full of moisturizing glycerin and oils (coconut and rapeseed). The heavy dusting of cocoa powder and nutmeg on top washes away within the first use, but the hint of spiciness remains from the clove oil in the formula. I absolutely recommend this, but you may have to pick this up in store as it's already sold out online in Canada!
