Lush is finally bringing out a bath bomb packed advent calendar for Christmas

Rejoice and ditch your plans of cheap chocolate. Lush is finally making our dreams come true by bringing out their very own advent calendar.

Lush fans will know that this is the first time Lush has created an advent calendar, making this a Very Big Deal™.

Their first foray into the Christmas calendar game is limited edition, with only 500 available, and will be released on Thursday 29 August. We’d recommend adding that to your calendar and getting online early if you have your heart set on opening up Lush products every day of December.

And don’t worry, this is a proper advent calendar – not one of those 12 days of Christmas malarkeys. Each one contains 24 full-sized Lush products, including five retro products you can’t pick up on their own and limited edition bath, body, and shower products to discover.

The packaging is pretty snazzy too, as you get a reusable chest (use it for storing all your Lush products, we say) made out of recycled materials.

Naturally that all comes at quite a cost – The Lush Advent Calendar costs £195. Whew.

Perhaps it’s worth asking your loved ones for your Christmas present early.

Here come the spoilers, so if you like to maintain the element of surprise, look away for a moment. Each Lush Advent Calendar contains:

  • Polar Bear Plunge Bath Bomb
  • Happy Shower Gel
  • Fairytale Sugar Scrub
  • Night Bloom Soap
  • Snowflake Body Lotion
  • Golden Pear Glow stick
  • Midnight Massage Bar
  • Candy Cane Tooth Jelly
  • Sleepy Dust Dusting Powder
  • Jingle Spells Bath Bomb
  • Galaxy Lip Scrub
  • Ponche Shower Gel
  • Red Lipstick & Sundry
  • Pop Art bath bomb
  • Warm Sock Bath Melt
  • Butterbear Soap
  • Yog Nog Shower Gel
  • Snowman Dreaming Bath Bomb
  • Rudolph’s Nose Shower Bomb
  • Christmas Eve Bubble Bar
  • Retro Tree Bath Melt
  • Santa’s Grotto Bath Bomb
  • Holly Fun
  • Santa’s Bubble Wand.

Once you’re done enjoying all the products, you can discover stories and interesting tidbits about the creation of the calendar by using the new Lush Lens feature on the #LushLabs app. You just scan the unpackaged products inside the calendar to get all the information, including an ingredients list and a ‘how to use’ demo, or scan the box to learn more.

Yes, it’s all very snazzy and complex, which is why we reckon this is an advent calendar only for the most diehard Lush fans. If you’re dipping your toe into the store, just pick up a bath bomb to get started.

Suzie Hackney, Lush Creative Direction, said: ‘We always want to produce packaging that is beautiful and long lasting. When we approached designing an advent calendar, we knew it had to be something special that would have a life after Christmas too.

‘The drawers make this design really functional but you still have the traditional way of opening an advent – hunting for the number and having the excitement of revealing a new product every day.’

Sounds fun. Anyone else counting down the days until December?
