When the days are too cold to bear and the nights are even worse, there’s only one way to get warmed up - with Lush! Lush’s selection of all-year-round products are here for you to rub on or soak in, and will warm every part of your body.

Use these favourite winter warmers to heat you up and make you feel alive again!

Hottie massage bar $10.50
This solid massage bar is for seriously stiff muscles! Hottie is specifically moulded with bumps that enhance any massage with extra pressure to get the circulation going and warm you right up. The jojoba and butter base melts onto the skin quickly to allow a smooth and sensual experience. Lush use vanilla absolute for its cosy aroma; it's also moisturizing for the skin and softening in combination with shea and cocoa butters, which makes it a saviour for dry winter skin. Black pepper and ginger oils are stimulating and help to release muscle tensions and aches. A Hottie like this one is sure to get you going. Vegan. 

The Comforter bubble bar $10.50 each

This concoction of bergamot and cypress essential oils have a calming and soothing action, making it the perfect way to end a long, cold day. Both of these oils are known for their comforting properties, so why not close yourself away from the world, layback and let your tension float away on the cosy, blackcurrant scented bubbles.

Honey Bee bath ballistic $6.75 each
Even busy bees need a break from the cold every now and then. The Honey Bee smells like butterscotch popcorn, freshly popped and still warm from the oven – the perfect way to heat up your body and your mind. The Moroccan Rhassoul mud cleanses and helps to purify your skin while you soak, and the most obvious ingredient, honey, is a natural humectant, which means that it retains and preserves moisture on your skin. Fizz it and soak in the caramel-scented waters. Vegan.

Hungerford Hill

Hungerford Hill is set to create a new benchmark for winery tourism in Australia’s oldest wine region, Hunter Valley, NSW, creating the region’s first seated premium food and wine matching experience for visitors.

Visitors to Hungerford Hill, awarded the Hunter Valley’s best Cellar Door experience in the 2012 Hunter Valley Legends and Wine Industry Awards, will still have the option to partake in the familiar and casual ‘standing’ tasting session at the Cellar Door with Hungerford Hill’s knowledgeable staff. However, for those seeking a more premium experience and higher level of wine appreciation, the seated tastings will allow access to a range of premium, limited release and museum wines. The wine tastings will be matched to a specially created platter of matching tasting sized bites, prepared by award winning Muse Restaurant at Hungerford Hill.

Guests enjoying the seated tasting option, which will be known as the “Epic Experience”, will be taken through the wines and their food matches by a dedicated staff member in the comfort of an intimate setting in either the indoor or outdoor terrace, both boasting stunning views across the vineyards.
Following the wine tasting guests may choose to enjoy a cheese platter or a salumi platter with a glass of wine on the outdoor terrace.
