This is my HG cleanser. Love the scent, love how my skin feels - before I got this I was using angels on bare skin and this is similar in texture but more moisturizing. Only way it could be better is skipping the cranberries, they're annoying to rub in and don't really add anything to the product.
Price - fairly expensive to buy but I find the smaller pots of lush cleanser lasts 2-3months so probably cheap in the long run.
Packaging is fairly bland but if you save up your empty pots and return 5 you get a free lush face mask which is awesome.
I plan on buying 2 big tubs and freezing them to use for the rest of the year!

This has made my skin angel soft it could be my HG clear BUT why oh gos why all off the lush products are causing me getting pimples :((( very nive cleanser though... Highly recommend it...
EDIT: pimples are gone in 3 days I think it was only my skins adjusting to a new product. NoW I don't know how can I live without this. It adds great moisture to skin and leaves it really smooth. The almonds and cranberries provides really gentle daily peeling. I wish this wasn't a seasonal product so I could buy over and over again .

I don't get the hype about this cleanser! It's just exactly the same as angels on bare skin but with Christmassy stuff and scent added. Too exfoliating for me to use more than a few times a week and I don't like the smell (though others might)

LOVE this product. Because of this cleanser I became obsessed with Lush Cosmetics. It's very gentle on my skin even with the bits of almond and cranberry and smells good enough to eat! I have very dry skin in the winter and this has definitely helped make my skin softer. The only bad things about this product is the fact that its a little messy and its seasonal.

I bought a tub of this because it was 50 percent off in the Lush store. That was actually the only reason (that and the fact that I had run out of AoBS) so when I got home and read that this was quite akin to Angels on Bare Skin I was very pleased with my purchase.
The smell is lovely. Very doughy and edible.
The little bits of fruit and the nori seaweed give this cleanser a lovely touch, but also make it quite hard to apply. I think it is even more gentle that AoBS and that it does not cleanse just as well. It does leave my skin super soft.
When I use AoBS I rarely have even the slightest blemish. But now I see some pimples on my chin and forehead. But that could also be because I have to study a lot for my mid year exams, so I'm eating pretty unhealthy and I'm constantly touching my face.

This is the best Lush stuff. I love it. Very soft scrub. Amazingly clean while the skin is not dry, but beautifully hydrated. I'm so sad that it's only limited edition.

I received a sample of this with an order and I ended up liking it so much I bought it! I normally use herbalism everyday and love it, so this will not be replacing it. Buche de Noel seems to strip the oils from my skin more than herbalism, so I would not want to use this everyday, maybe 2 times a week or a day when I want to be especially oil free. Too bad it's only available around Christmas, I would love to try it in the summer!

I've been a great fan of Angels on Bare Skin, so naturally, have been keen to try Buche de Noel. I'm now a half carton done, and as usual, it's another big YES!!! for Lush's product. Just like AOBS, this leaves your face really smooth and soft, but Buche de Noel is even better as it smells lovely and fruity- very much of berries. It's a definite repurchase. Unfortunately, it's only a Christmas item, so I got 2 more tubs as spares. Wish it can be a year round product, Lush.

This was a complete impulse purchase, spurred no doubt by the Holiday excitement, yummy smell and the fact that i was really-really hungry :) Unfortunately this is just one more product that i am hooked on and cant get easily year-round. Grrrr! I know that this being a seasonal item makes it a "IT" product right now but i really wish LUSH takes the hint already and makes it permanent offering (along with the Snow Fairy shower gel!)!
Most people compare this to Angels on Bare Skin and i will agree that they are definitively related but i think at best they may be cousins...The texture is similar of course but the Buche de Noel is definitively more gritty and smells so-so-so much better. Just like ABS this cleanser is kind of messy to use but practice helps so after a few tries i am becoming a pro. A pinch in the palm of my hand, mixed with a few drops of warm water is all it takes but make sure to apply it on each face area individually. Gentle massage is all my skin can take otherwise if i scrub too hard abrasions are sure to follow. I also love that it rinses easily and doesnt leave my skin red and blotchy like some of the other LUSH cleansers (Coal Face i am looking at you!).
The reason i love this so much is because it actually reminds me of another staple in my skin care cabinet - Dr.Hauschka's Cleansing Cream! Must be the almonds but LUSH obviously smells much better :)
This doesnt leave my skin dry but i think it might not be suitable for the very-dry skin types, it exfoliates nicely but doesnt replace a facial scrub so it can be used daily although i wouldnt recommend it 2x a day - just once is enough!
The only bad thing is that it makes me crave sweets every time...and i dont know how to bake..or cook..really...

Buche de noel is hands down the best morning cleanser i've ever used!!
Yeah, I only use it once a day because of its scrubby texture. It exfoliates well and really gentle, makes my skin so smooth without being harsh to my skin. (At night, I use clarisonic with other cleanser)
I've been using buche de noel for about 5 weeks, and my skin loooovvvvvveeeesss it soooo much.. :D
And.... it smells AH-MAZE-ING!!! It looks yummy, almost good enough to eat haha.. It tastes sweet too, anyway..=p **NO, I didn't eat it, just accidently tasted it in the shower.. xD **
