Peeping Santa is oddly enough one of the few Lush Christmas products that never really appealed to me, though I’m not sure why. As someone who’s a lil’ obsessed with any ‘butter’ (lip butter, body butter, buttercream, actual butter…) a bubble bar stuffed with cocoa butter seems like the dream. But really after trying it, i don’t think I was missing much. The bar wasn’t as moisturising as I thought it would be and the mild, slightly fruity-floral scent just wasn’t Christmassy enough. Sorry Peeping Santa, you are cute but for £4 there are much better Lush products out there.
One of my little Christmas pet peeves is when a gift guide classes gifts that are below £50/75/etc as ‘stocking fillers’! For me a stocking filler is under a fiver, and so all the products in this gift guide are indeed under £5.
“Limited Edition decorative hanging pack containing our bestselling nude lip bullet. Mini size for easy on the go colour, it twists up to give precise application with no need to sharpen. This soft blendable formula gives a dewy cream finish and vivid colour. The perfect gift for any make-up fan this Christmas; hang it on the tree, pop it in a stocking or keep it for yourself.”
You can finally bottle yourself as chocolatey goodness.
That weird little blob isn’t really representative of anything, but essentially it’s a little block of different coloured soapy play-doh that you can mould in to your own Santa. Though I’m not personally too keen on the idea of rubbing a bearded man on me when I’m in the shower, Lush products make great little stocking fillers and you can pop a couple of bath bombs or soaps in a stocking without breaking the bank.
I think this my favourite stocking filler out of the bunch – fun, unusual, and semi-practical, I would definitely love to find these in my stocking!
As I write this this is currently on offer at Superdrug for £5 instead of £8, but I don’t know when the offer ends so by the time it reaches you it might be £8 again. I still thought I’d include it as I’m a big fan of Makeup Revolution and that rose gold makeup bag is definitely calling my name…
