LUSH also had someone from their manufacturing team making a batch of their new Don't Look At Me fresh face mask. This mask contains silken tofu, rice milk, and rice syrup, all blended up before our eyes!
Reindeer Rock is new and the deep red soap is scented with lingonberries. I really like the grown-up fruity smell of this one; it's fruity but deep and a bit musky (?) and not at all sugary.
Baked Alaska looks like a snowball on the outside, but is full of beautiful, bright colour and uplifting, fresh-scented oils on the inside.
Old Father Time has a clock and cogs motif and an earthy, woodsy scent. It's such a shame that most people won't see this new addition in whole form because it's so cool.
Snowcake is another returning product, and thank goodness because I didn't get to try it last year! I'm looking forward to lathering up with this one and its creamy, marzipan scent.
Yog Nog is also back, and you know I love this one! If you haven't tried it before, you must check it out. I love the creamy, slightly spicy eggnog-inspired smell of this one. FYI it's also available as a bath bomb now.

While at the media preview, I was treated to a hand and arm massage and learned a bit about layering products. Because LUSH products tend to be strongly scented, I always thought of combining their products as kind of an olfactory disaster waiting to happen. Instead, the scents of Rub Rub Rub, Rose Jam shower gel (another returning Christmas fave), Celebrate lotion, and First Snow dusting powder combined into something amazingly citrusy and sophisticated, with a hint of sweetness--and not overwhelming at all. The folks at LUSH are super nice and happy to offer arm massages, so don't miss out! They're all legit LUSHies and will have lots of suggestions for layering products.
There are way too many Christmas products to talk about here, so be sure to check out the entire collection on the LUSH website! As always, they also have tons of beautifully pre-wrapped gifts to treat yourself or a lucky giftee.
