Lush and Korres Holiday Sets!

I guess it is post-Christmas/boxing day sales at Lush made me buy these boxes.  The store was doing an 'up to 50% off' on selected holiday products and I grabbed my boxes at both 30% off - quite an amazing deal!  I got one Happy Christmas box and another Billy Bonkers Bathtime Favourites.

Let's start with the smaller one first.

My Happy Christmas box was packed by Dawn's team (well...) and contained 3 ballistics, 2 soaps and 1 bubble bar.

Christmas Eve
This bubble bar is totally the reason I got this box.  

Golden Wonder, Satsumo Santa, Lil Lush Pud
Never tried bath ballistics/bombs before, these should be cute ones to start with!

Snowcake, Candy Cane
Not only am I not a regular soap user, these are also really soft and tricky to use!  Snowcake smells yummy - but Candy Cane is really not my cup of tea - kind of sickly cherry IMO!

Okay - onto the next box - an even larger one!   The Billy Bonkers Bathtime Favourites Box packed by Mandy's team (I sound like Lush staff are my best buddies ever?! they aren't :S) 
Inside I got 4 bubble bar (yummy), 1 bath melt, 2 bath bombs/ballistic and 1 soap.  I will write in the order of my likings - starting with my favourite!!!

Magic Wand
If you read my Lush Christmas Lust list a while back (HERE), You would have known that this is the key reason I got this box.

Gingerbread House
My boyfriend is a fan of ginger, not just the western cinnamon+ginger sweetness, but more the traditional chinese spicy herbal gingerness.   The cinnamon stick, seriously, is too cute to be thrown in a bath tub!!! :P

Ma Bar
Supposedly to be chocolate-y.  Yummy Yummy bubble bar :D

Candy Mountain
Cute looking but I don't know what to expect yet~~

mmm melting marshmallow moment
A bath melt!! Haven't tried this before and I'm genuinely excited.   Just by reading its name I feel like my skin is softening (insane?!)~~~!

(one more) Lil Lush Pud, Mrs. Whippy
As you can see, my Mrs. Whippy broke in the box.  Sad although I know this couldn't affect how it works.  Again, never tried bath bombs/ballistics before so this could be exciting! :D

Candy Cane 
Not sure if its mositure caused it to grow mould?? OMG... I guess I'm cutting that section out - should I?  Any Lush soap expert here?? I need a little advice!

 Everything in their own zip-lock bag to avoid the scent mixing up (that's what happened in the boxes!)  Now my problem is - which one should I try first??? hehe~~

So a few posts back, I talked about getting myself some Korres from ASOS.  I talked about the two skin care samples but totally forgotten to upload and write about the body/hair stuff.  Here they are:  I got a All I Want set (£12) and a Best of Korres set (£14.85).  I must admit I have another All I Want set un-pictured, I bought that because it is further reduced to (£9).

So in the All I want set there's 1 body butter, 1 shower gel, 1 shampoo and 1 conditioner. The Japanese Rose Body Butter is the only thing I have opened and tried - the texture is beautiful and the Japanese Rose scent is soft, complex, natural and oriental, as amazing as I have expected!

In the Best of Korres set, there are THE guava body butter, 2 shower gels, and 2 skin care samples.  I am a tiny bit disappointed by the Guava scent.  It smells good, a little bit like coconut, still natural and soft, but not as amazing as I imagined.  :S

I will give these a review/empties post once I form an opinion on them, or finish them up - whichever the sooner :P  These bottles look so cute in my stash really; I don't want to break their sweet little family up!!!!
