Yog Nog body conditioner has graced us with its presence this Christmas time and wow is it a good one! We’ve seen in the last year or so a few yog nog scented products – one of them being a body lotion. I found that to be far too strong and had a strange curry tang to it like a burnt butterscotch perfume I used to own. The body conditioner is an amazing format of the yog nog scent and dare I say my favourite. The super softening combination of fair trade cocoa butter, shea butter, vitamin e enriched almond oil and oat kernel oils really do absorb into the skin quite well to create that baby skin feel we all aim for. The soft feeling and scent lasted fpr the rest of day and was rather impressed! Again, just like other yog nog scented products, the warming clove bud and uplifting ylang ylang create that unique but familiar mouth watering foodie scent we all know and love. All you need to do is use a generous handful across your body and rinse off in the shower. Myself and many others have been known to use body conditioners as a regular body lotion but they do tend to be a lot richer so is best to use a lot less.
Yog Nog shower gel is a new addition to the huge catalogue of Lush Christmas products that we have all been begging for. 2019 appears to be the year of all things yog nog and the lush community are lapping it up. I was lucky enough to try this in store and was surprised at how moisturising it felt on the skin and how long the scent lingered for. The formula is full of fine lustre which doesn’t settle as bad as the likes of the old twilight shower gel and others from Christmas past. I would highly recommend this for anyone who loves sweet and food based scents as this will definitely hit the spot. Just like caramel and custard mixed together, maple syrup water, cargeenan extract and jojoba oil are there to soften the skin and benefit us with all of the moisturising properties. Clove bud and ylang ylang oils add a warming but uplifting element to the gel and surround you with a festive feeling.
Yog Nog is an exclusive bath bomb to the Harajuku store and 2018 community favourites but will soon be released online and in some stores to celebrate the 30th birthday of the first bath bomb, invented by Mo Constantine. It was also a well loved and highly popular bath bomb back in 2015 and 2016. The soap has made a few appearances since but the bath bomb didn’t return until November 2018 after many requests from the lush community across the globe. We got our wish when Lush decided to release a ‘lush community’ collection of bath bombs – yog nog being one of them. The design was as cute as before and super detailed and the few chunks of cocoa butter in the bomb was replaced by one big chunk of butter right in the centre which smells so strong and creamy! I find the clove strong in the bath bomb portion of the bomb whereas the cocoa butter melt inside is very sweet and almost like honeycomb. It’s definitely a more warm wintery scent but there’s no rules when it comes to bathing!
Description taken from Lush ‘ Enjoy a spicy gingerbread bath with this sweet limited edition bath bomb. This beautiful bath ball carries the same burnt caramel scent as our seasonal fave Yog Nog Bubble Bar, now with a blast of extra fizzy fun. Hydrating cocoa and shea butters keep winter skin soft and supple, while spicy clove and floral ylang ylang combine to create its familiar festive aroma—keeping you bakery-fresh all season long. ‘
Six reusable bubble bar is possibly my favourite Valentine’s day product ever released by Lush based purely on the design. For Valentine’s Day 2019, they have really pushed the boat out with the suggestive product names and innuendous descriptions. This naughty bubble bar is scented with the beloved yog nog fragrance and because it’s a reusable bubbe bar, all you have to do is hold it by it’s tail or pop a finger in the hole under running water to create a tub full of bubbles. Both colours are the same scent, just in case there was any confusion. I found it didn’t really colour the water when I used it and the scent wasn’t as strong as other yog nog products. It reminds me more of a crunchie chocolate bar.. like honeycomb! It made plenty of fluffy bubbles however just like other reusable bubble bars, they’re not the most hydrating and tend to feel squeaky in the bath. If you know, you know!
