Lush has some really nice offerings this holiday season and one of them is called Bûche De Noël. That’s French for yule log (the kind you eat)!
This isn’t so much of a yule log as it is a really interesting facial cleanser. It’s a slightly scrubby cleanser that contains ground almonds, almond oil, kaolin and cocoa butter, and is surrounded by seaweed for nutrients! This baby also packs a fruity punch with cranberries and satsumas mixed in.
I have to say photographing Lush products is SO fun! They are some of my very favorite things to take pictures of because they are all unique and handmade, so there are all these different shapes and nooks and colors for each item. 🙂

Bûche De Noël
Doesn’t it kind of look like cranberry cookie dough? It also kind of feels like cookie dough! It smells divine. Slightly spicy and very almond-y. You know me, I am an almond scented sucker, it may be my favorite scent ever, so this was very pleasing to my nostrils.
The way you use this is, you break off a pea-sized chunk and kind of mash it around with your fingers and a tiny bit of water which creates a paste. Then you scrub it all over your face and rinse.
I did find that using my fingertips for this made some of it fall into the sink before it was mashed up. It may work better to use the palms of your hands for that part.
It doesn’t feel overly scrubby or harsh at all and makes your face feel very fresh once it’s rinsed off. The one negative I experienced was my face did feel a little tight and dry afterwards. Not overly so, but noticeable to me.
Pricing: $12.95 for 3.5 oz.
