Lush How It’s Made: Bûche de Noël

Sydney and Aurelio are here to show you how to make our festive holiday face and body wash, Bûche de Noël. Filled with rich and radiant mandarin oranges, vitamin-packed cranberries and plenty of scrubby ground almonds, this skin savior calms as it cleanses. To start, we blend together the cranberries, fresh oranges and a splash of real brandy. Then we pour in glycerin and our blend of woodsy essential oils to give Bûche de Noël its signature scent. Once it’s all combined, Aurelio adds ground almond and kaolin clay for their gentle exfoliating and cleansing properties. To help keep everything smooth and hydrated, we also melt in fair trade cocoa butter and mix it all together. The team does a quick group stretch to make sure that they’re all in peak physical form, then they get rolling. They knead out the cleansing dough until it’s smooth, then fold it into its classic log shape. Finally, they add some beautiful gold leaf and a nourishing layer of dried seaweed with a cute cut-out holly design. Now it’s time to pack it up and send it to a store near you!
