Lush Haul: Making the Most of the Boxing Day Sale

big lushhaul post haircare bodycare lip care

I can't tell you how glad I am that I woke up in time to shop Lush's online Boxing Day sale. I had stayed up until midnight hoping it would go live then and when it didn't, full of frustration (and very tired from too much wine), I went to bed with no plan to check again in the morning. But I did, as you can see, and I bought a lot. There were a lot of Christmas limited edition products in the sale but I must admit that I tried to get as many products from their main line so there aren't that many limited edition products in this haul - just the Randy Butter and the Christmas Kisses Gift Set. Everything I bought was half price and as far as I know the Boxing Day sale is the only sale Lush holds each year.

very hydrating natural hand treatment

Lush Helping Hands Hand Cream - RRP £7.50

I can never say no to a new hand cream and Helping Hands seemed like something I had to try - especially with a 50% discount! So far I'm really liking it. The smell isn't the nicest but it is very hydrating and works great as an overnight treatment.

moisturising in shower body cream

Lush Randy Butter Butter Cream - Christmas Limited Edition

I actually thought this was a body butter but it turns out it is a hydrating product to use in the shower! You can see from my photo that I've already given it a go and I'm on the fence at the moment. I like it but the smell is very very boozy, not the most pleasant thing to use in the mornings!

natural hair growth stimulating mask

Lush Roots Hair Treatment - RRP £9.95

Since my stress induced hair loss last year (University can be really stressful) my hair has been growing back a lot finer than it used to be. When I saw Roots was on sale I couldn't wait to put it in my basket, I'm hoping that a weekly hair treatment will help stimulate hair growth.

natural body scrub bright blue

Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Scrub - RRP £8.25

I've had my eye on Lush's Rub Rub Rub for a while now. With its intense colour and the fresh scent I couldn't say no when I saw it in the sale. I'm looking forward to giving this some use!

I love juicy gentle lentil  Coolaulin Veganese

Lush Gentle Lentil Shampoo - Retro Line, currently unavailable.
Lush I Love Juicy Shampoo - RRP £5.25
Lush Veganese Hair Conditioner - RRP £4.25
Lush Coolaulin Hair Conditioner -  Retro Line, currently unavailable.

I didn't initially intend on buying so many hair products but I get through shampoo and conditioner quite quickly so I thought there was no harm in it. I picked up Gentle Lentil for an everyday shampoo option and I Love Juicy for a weekly clarifying option. Veganese seemed like a great everyday conditioner and Coolalin can be reserved for days when my hair needs something more deeply hydrating. I'm very happy with them so far. 

natural lip product gift set
honey trap santa baby bubblegum scrub toothy tabs

Lush Christmas Kisses Box Set (Limited Edition) ft.
Lush Chou Chou I Love You Toothy Tabs - RRP £2.95
Lush Bubblegum Lip Scrub - RRP £5.50
Lush Honey Trap Lip Balm - RRP £5.75
Lush Santa Baby Lip Tint - Christmas Limited Edition

The inclusion of two of my lip favourites - the Bubblegum Lip Scrub and the Honey Trap Lip Balm - encouraged this purchase. Mine are both near/past their expiry date so I was glad to get some new ones! The Santa Baby Lip Tint (which I didn't have very high expectations for) turns out to be really lovely - offering a matte, bright red lip. I'm very pleased with this gift set.

That's everything I picked up in the sale! Let me know what you'd like me to review first. Did any of you get any bargains in the sales this year? Have you tried anything that I picked up in this haul?



  1. This post makes me very jealous! I had my eye on so many of the xmas bath bombs but they were all sold out by the time i got online. Ive never tried Lush hair stuff, looking forward to hearing what you think :)

  17. I checked it out 1 or 2 days after Boxing Day and managed to grab a few bath bombs, but some disappeared before I could even check out!

  26. Wow, great products! Is the Rub Rub Rub good? I've got my eye on it too, and it looks like it would do great. c:

  27. Hi One little vice! Please can you tell me what time you went on the Lush website to catch the Boxing Day Sale? I phoned them to ask what time it starts but they didn't know. There is a certain item that I really want and I don't want to miss out on it if it's included in this years sale. Does anyone know what time the Lush Boxing Day Online Sale starts this year?
