Blogmas Day 23: Lush Tree D Bath Oil Review and Advent

Todays post may turn out to be a bit shorter than normal as neither of the parts is as long as I thought they’d be. I originally planned on doing a whole post to review the Lush Tree D Bath Oil but I really couldn’t think of enough to say about it. It’s definitely disappointing so I wanted to get this post up before the sales start as it might be one people are tempted by. I’ll go into more detail in the post if you want the full review but the short version is it just isn’t worth the money. Unless I have a dud but the ones I’ve seen in store seemed the same.

The second part is more positive and it’s the Marks and Spencer’s Beauty Advent Calendar gift for today; the Formula Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream from Marks and Spencer’s Beauty. I haven’t really tried this one out properly, it’s a night cream and it’s today’s gift so no chance really, but also apparently I got this exact tube last year. It’s a 15ml tube as the mini and a full sized jar 50ml costs £22 so this tube is worth £6.60 I think. I will try it tonight and put my first impressions (or is that second given I did that last year too) in this post anyway.

Lush Christmas 2017

I feel like I’ve had to do this a few times recently but I’m starting this post saying sorry about another computer issue! It seems to be stuck typing \ all the time so sorry if any rogue back slashes appear in this post, I think I caught them all but one or two might sneak through! Also these photos have been taken on my iPad. Hopefully normal service will resume shortly but it may be time to admit the computer has had enough. It seems a bit like it’s one thing after the other recently doesn’t it? Anyway, on with the scheduled post!


I may not buy as much Lush any more, six years ago this blog would have pretty much been 90% Lush, but I seem to always have a bit of a weakness when it comes to their Christmas range. This year, like in recent years, they have a mix of returning favourites alongside new scents and products. I did end up getting more than I originally planned with a mix of new and old and I think I’m most interested in the newest product type of the solid shower gel, to see how it compares to the traditional bottles and their jellies.

I bought quite a range of products types, though I mainly stuck with bath products as I know some of their skin care products in the past work for me but then it’s a rush of finding a new one that works when the stash runs out. I would also say that, going by my past experiences, the shower gels and similar tend to be the most consistent when it comes to scent, bubble bars tend to be ok but dry out and lose scent over time more than they used to so try not to stash too many early on in the season.
