To mark the launch of the much awaited Limited edition winter range, Lush team in the UAE put together a little performance to get guests in festive spirits. The unique presentation explained the range while entertaining guests with light hearted humour, The Lush way! Bloggers & Press members had the opportunity to try out the range and experience some festive magic.
The Range will be in all Lush store worldwide as of October 2013.
The Winter Limited edition Range
Invented by Mo Constantine OBE in 1987. The Bath Ballistic is often imitated, but none compare to the original. Each one is formulated with the finest ingredients and essential oils to cleanse both the mind and body. This Christmas, instead of glitter we have added popping candy, edible lustres and agar jelly stars and shapes for spectacular bathing. Simply drop into a ready run, warm bath and watch as it fizzes around the tub with abandonment, emitting its goodness into the water.
NEW Bombardino (28 aed) … Alpine Indulgence
Bombardino shares its name with a beverage enjoyed in the Italian Alps and smells of rich lemon cheesecake. We’ve added cocoa butter to soften the skin; whilst Sicilian lemon oil and Fair Trade vanilla absolute (the first Fair Trade absolute in the world!) give your bath a sweet and delicious fragrance.
NEW Lord of Misrule (36 aed) … Strange & Magnificent
Featuring Fair Trade vanilla absolute, the world’s first Fair Trade absolute, mixed with spicy black pepper oil and soothing patchouli. Allow this ballistic to slowly dissolve in your bath to reveal a wine coloured centre.

Popping candy represents the party atmosphere that he would have created during his rule over a period of winter merriment.
NEW Luxury Lush Pud (37 aed) … Calorie Free Comfort

LUSH has been manufacturing luxury handmade soaps since the mid 1980s. In a deliberate move away from truly mass commercial soaps, LUSH has perfected the technique of making solid soap by hand using the “pouring” method. In 2007 Mo Constantine OBE helped to invent a palm oil free soap base – so not only are LUSH soaps not made with any animal fats, they also help to save the rain forests. This base is available for any manufacturer who would like to use it.

Body Care …
In winter, we need extra moisture to help retain the skin’s elasticity and smooth texture. One of the most important things for your skin is to keep it gently stimulated and maintain a healthy circulation. By doing this you’ll encourage the elimination of toxins, ensure a healthy turnover of cells and stimulate muscle tone. This year we have a selection of festive unpreserved body care products to help you keep your skin in tip-top condition, softened and fragranced beautifully too.

Skin Care …
Everyday when you face the world it can be rather unkind. Dirt, grime, and pollution … it all collects on your epidermis and pores. You may not see it, but it’s there. Cleansing your face is one of the kindest things you can do for yourself; especially if you’re using one of our gentle inventions. Mo Constantine OBE excels in these beautiful formulas, which are greatly valued, especially during the festive season, when our skin can suffer from late nights and all sorts of indulgences.
We offer seasonal facial cleansers to offer your skin a little bit of some special TLC that it might need over the festive season. In the New Year, once the excess of Christmas is a thing of the past, choose from our range of year round cleansing rolls; including: Angels on Bare Skin; Dark Angels; Aqua Marina; or Herbalism.
Let the Good Times Roll cleansing roll (64 aed for 100g) … Scrubs and Softens
An exfoliating cleanser for the face and body, to softly scrub dry winter skin and moisturise at the same time. Delicately cleansing maize flour, polenta and corn oil are all gently absorbent and can help to even out skin tone. Talc enables the cleanser to glide easily over the skin, while glycerine acts as a humectant keeping the skin expertly nourished and moisturised, which means this one is especially good for dry skin (a common complaint during the winter months). Crushed popcorn garnishes this rolled cleanser. Skin will be left softened, soothed and ever so slightly warmed by the cinnamon powder, which can help with circulation. Vegan
Bûche de Noël cleansing roll (65 aed for 100g) … Gentle and Nourishing
This cleansing roll is food for your face, containing lots of softening and nourishing ingredients to care for any skin type during the winter months.

Helps lock in moisture and keep skin soft against the cold. Wrapped in a sheet of nori seaweed, it resembles a festive Yule Log. Vegan
Our Fresh facemasks are made daily by hand, with fresh natural ingredients. They contain no preservatives and are made with whole fruits and vegetables and the finest essential oils. They are so fresh they have to be kept in the fridge and used within 3 weeks!
Cold weather and central heating can cause skin to dry out, so using facemasks is a good way to replenish moisture and get vitamins and nutrients directly onto your face. Inventor and co-Founder Helen Ambrosen comments: “They will deliver fresh ingredients directly onto the skin to work their magic, giving you an effective way to naturally protect against aging. Facemasks containing clays such as kaolin will help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.” So great to use before the Christmas party for a temporary natural lift!
