AMW Reports: Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Christmas 2014 Gift Guide

 You know Christmas season is near when you see snowman! And you know the season's going to be unique when you're holding a "Gold Snowman!"

Rewind to the gold snowman making day, I got an invite to have a look at Lush Christmas 2014 Gift Ideas. 

Prior to the event, I received a Lush gift several months ago and my heart literally fluttered like the butterfly.

It broke my heart to use these cuties but I shared these with my nephew who enjoyed this so much I knew Lush has to be part of my Christmas gift-giving list for the year 2014.

 When you enter a Lush store, you'll know that Lush has a whole selection of festive gifts for different personalities that matters to you. 

During the event, we were all asked if we want to build a Snowman.  Of course I said yes!

Please bear with me, my hands were full so I had a weird-looking Snowman.  Nevertheless, I enjoyed creating him and in my little gold baby is cute! 

I also get to create my own fresh handmade bubble bar!  Different cutters from stars, moon, Christmas tree, flowers etc.. were all there ready to create our personalized soaps!

You get pink, green and white and a nice "powder" for final touch.

And here's my creation!  I think I went overboard with the loose powder *laughs* 

Now, if you want more professional-looking gifts!  Head on to Lush store at Greenbelt and you'll see beautifully wrapped gifts that you can purchase and ready to give!

From the eye-catching 12 Days of Christmas set which has 12 beautiful products inside (Karma Soap, The Olive Branch Shower Gel, Cinders Bath Bombs, Golden Wonder Bath Bomb, Snow Angel Bath melt, Hot Toddy Shower Gel, Dashing Santa Bath Bath, Honey I Washed the Kids, Celebration Body Lotion, Holly Go Lightly Bubble Bar, Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb and Star Light Star Bright Bath Melt) to the huge gift with Santa box called White Christmas, this box will leave the receiver smelling spectacular, buffed, moisturised, shampooed and conditioned from head to toe.
