Pineapple Grunt

Lush “Pineapple Grunt” soap.

Up for the vote this week for the January 2022 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

Excuse the bad quality of my photos, i didnt really know how to take a picture back then 20 years ago 😄

Discontinued in 2002, remade one time only for Lush forum members in 2004. Was never made in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen.

Smells like real pineapple and it has real pineapple juice. Its not a strong scent though. Once it ages it takes on a nutty scent (still nice though). I love this soap. This a popular soap back in the day. 🍍

Ingredients: Fresh Pineapple, Vetivert Oil, Water, Glycerine, Sodium Chloride, Gardenia Extract, Tetrasodium EDTA, Perfume.

1999 Lush Times description: If you suspect that you may end up in a dreary place for some reason or other – there are a few Lush products that you should bring along. One is the Big Blue Ballistic, another is the Floating Island Luxury Bath Melt and the third is Pineapple Grunt soap. With its chunks of fresh, organic pineapple and scent of calming vetivert oil, made from a fragrant, Indian grass, you can wash yourself down with Pineapple Grunt in the shower and imagine you’ve been caught in a tropical rainstorm. Your skin will smell as if you’ve been massaged with the local perfumes, and will feel extra clean after cleansing with pineapple.

This is what the store sized display soap loojed oike. It looked lije a giant slice of pibeapple. And then the store people would cut 100g, 200g, or huge 500g pieces off of the ring for you. 😊

Squid Games shower jelly

5 out of 5 rating see my demo video below

Its a large size jelly in the shape of a squid.

It has the scent of ylang ylang flower, patchouli, lemongrass and Ho wood. It smells like an expensive mens cologne or something. I love the scent.

Also, the scent has somestaying power after you use it which i like.

I Would give this a high rating because its really cute, it works well without drying my skin, it smells great and the scent lasts.

Its scent is from another product that Lush made before they called themselves Lush, when they were a company called Cosmetics To Go in the 90’s. The product was called ‘Damp Squid’ and it was a bath bomb.

I still have my old pictures of my Damp Squid bath bomb.

Lush Kitchen December 2021 Subscription Box

I voted for these. Normally i would vote for Berry Berry Christmas instead of bucks fizz, but i still have two bottles of berry berry that i bought from before. Thats the only reason i didnt vote for it.

Bar Humbug bubble bar

Berry Berry Christmas shower gel

Buck’s Fizz body conditioner

Chilly Bon Bomb Ive never tried this but i have the description ill add today.

Once a Year massage bar (will add today)

Perle De Sel bath bomb

Posh chocolate body wash

5 out of 5 star rating See my Demo Video below

This deliciously self-centred chocolate body wash is packed with aloe vera and glycerine to soften and hydrate delicate skin.

How to use:

Completely vegan friendly, this is a great body wash for dry skin. Scoop out a good handful and inhale the rich cocoa aroma while you work it all over your body then rinse off. 

  • VEGAN
  • 100% RECYCLED POT

Deliciously hydrating and softening. Thisis the best product Lush has created in quite awhile. This smells more like straight up chocolate than any of the other chocolate things that Lush has made. It does remind me of the scent of Lush Walter Bunny scrub.

I describe the texture in my video below but it feels like a chocolate mouse in thepot and feels like silk when you rub it on your body.

Sleepy bath bomb

This is one of many products only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar gift set.

Lush Uk had a Sleepy pop up event in September October 2021 time frame. They had many exclusive Sleepy products not available in stores. This Sleepy bomb was one of them. Lush Uk decided to add it to the Christmas Advent Calendar gift set as an exclusive amongst all the other goodies in the calendar gift set.

See below for my 3 minute Tub Demo Video.

Sleepy bomb reminds me of the Lush Uk ‘Sleeping Giant’ bath bomb. I think Sleepy bomb is a miniature version of it.

This Sleepy bomb has such a gorgeous periwinkle blue color! 😍

Sleepy is a quiet, slow melting kind of bomb, not the fast fizzing type.

It looks like some kind of melting blackberry dessert doesn’t it? 😊

There’s a bit of very dark blue almost black color inside the bath bomb that’s surprising.

There are multiple colors in here, violet, lilac, black, gold. Lots of bath art opportunities 😄

The gold is actually shimmery stuff. And the gold shimmer gets dispersed in the purple water and it’s just beautiful.

I’d rate this a 5 out of 5 rating.

These aren’t like the Lush halloween 2021 products which glow under UV light. These are glow in the dark. Here is what the stars and moon look when you turn off the lights.

Some folks were asking me what these moon and stars are made out of. Many folks thought they were a bath melt as i did, but they are made out of what feels like plastic. They don’t melt.

Twilight

This above is ‘Twilight’ bath bomb sold in Lush stores. The ‘Sleepy’ bomb is the same scent. Both made with floral Ylang Ylang , Sweet creamy Tonka bean, and Bright herbal Lavendar. I asked the creator Alessandro and he stated that ‘Yes. They are the same scent’, just different names. Not complaining. I’d love to use both of these in a bath cocktail. Unfortunately there is only one in the Advent Calendar gift set.

This bath bomb is made with the classic Lush ‘Cocktail’ scent, and then Lush adds some strawberry to that.

You Shall Go to the Ball

5 out of 5 see my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below

Looking like Cinderella’s carriage, i love the new Strawberry scent. Its different than any other Lush strawberry scent. Its almost like they mixed lush rose jam and lush strawberry twin tub jelly. Those notes mixed together.

I don’t think i’ve ever seen any Lush bath bomb that was so intricately designed. And the color combination of that shade of pink with a beautiful dusting of gold.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Tonka Absolute, Soybean Flour, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Talc, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Dipropylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Tin Oxide, Coumarin, Geraniol, *Limonene, Colour 47005:1, Colour 45410:1, Colour 45410:2, Colour 45410, Colour 15850:1, Colour 77491, Colour 17200

After my bath i ordered 3 more of this bath bomb. Who knows. i might buy more right before they go away in January.

This is a slow melty foamed type of bath bomb. I love that type. Those usually have the best bath art.

I noticed that this has pink shimmer in the water as well as gold shimmer! It doesn’t stick to your skin which is good. It’s not the most glitter i’ve seen in a lush bath bomb but it’s not the least amount either.

The pink and yellow combine to make a deep orange colored water, with pink and gold sparkles.

New Lush Sugar Roll Facial Cleansers

4 out of 5 rating

Lush introduced some new products at their two superstores. including what Lush calls ‘Sugar Roll Cleansers’ for use on the face.

There are five kinds at the superstores as you can see in the picture at the top of this page. Lush uk decided to put these two of the five on their retail websites.

I got a couple from Lush USA since Lush uk couldn’t send this overseas in the heat. You can see the difference in the flowers between the Uk and the North American.ones.

You use them the same as the classic Lush Angels on Bare Skin facial cleanser.

Heres a video where i show you up close

Hot Toddy

4 out of 5 rating. smells of cloves, cinnamon

This is such a popular lush product with Lushies. It was never sold as a regular year round product, it was a Mid to late 2000’s Christmas limited edition bubble bar.

This came out for Yule 2003. It smells nice and warm for the winter months. It smells spicy, orangey, foody, and a little spicy like Coca Cola or something. I am the only Old skool Lushie on the planet who doesn’t think Hot Toddy is the best thing since sliced bread. That said I do think it’s good. I would rate it a 4 out of 5 rating, meaning i would sugfest you try it, i may buy one more. Versus a 5 out of 5 rating would mean i would be buying five or more of them to stock up.

Someone asked me if i thought Hot Toddy smelled the same as the Lush ‘Jolly’ shower gel. They share similar ingredients like orange oil, cinnamon, and clove but Jolly is heavier on the orange, while Hot Toddy is a tad heavier on the cinnamon.

Lush Times description: The hot toddy is our Celtic grandmother’s cure for a cold or a chill: whiskey (or whisky), lemon juice, honey and hot water. The Lush Hot Toddy will suit even the tee-total grans because you don’t drink it, you crumble it under the running water to make a warm, fruity, spicy bath with lemon peel, muscovada sugar, cinnamon, lime, clove and a pinch of paprika and a hint of soothing patchouli. It takes the chill off after coming in from the cold.

Ingredients: 100g £1.95

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Clove Leaf Oil, Patchouli Oil, Lime Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Orange Oil, Muscovada Sugar, Lemon Peel, Crushed Cinnamon, Paprika Oleoresin.

The previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen made the hot toddy bubble bar again and the shower gel a couple of times in 2014, and 2016.

Lush made a shower gel (and a few other things) in tge mid 2000’s from this scent because Lushies were begging for a shower gel in the same scent.

Other Lush products in this same scent family are Holly Golightly bubble bar, Melting Snowman bath melt, orange and spice bath melt tablet’

Happy Skin

Lush ‘Happy Skin’ facial exfoliator

This is a Lush Uk subscription box exclusive for September 2021.

Have you tried it? What do you think?

This was an exclusive product made for the August 2021 Subscription
Box


I like this. It smells kind of like theres a bit of honey in it. I dont believe there is any in this but that’s what it smells like.
Its got very fine exfoliation from the finely ground tagua beans.

Its a thick consistency and my skin feels great after i used it. My pores are smaller and my skin issoft. I do need moidturizer after using it but i always use moisturizer throughout the day anyway so.

If youve tried Lush Smugglers Soul facial exfoliator this Happy Skin is the same fineness of scrub but its a thicker consistency and it smells different. Like a light smell of nuts and honey.

Merry Christmas shower gel

5 out of 5 rating

See my 4 minute Up close sink demo where i wash my hands with it and you can see how much lather it has, how thick it is, etc.

Lush has created three new Christmas shower gels this year which are different than anything theyve made before. One of them is only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar Gift. There are 6-8 exclusive Christmas products only available in the Advent calendar.

Merry Christmas shower gel is quite a surprise to me. There are so many things about it that i like.

The color is a rich red, and it has gold sparkles in it. They settle at the bottom but i just shake it up to distribute the sparkke all throughout the shower gel.

Goodness. It looks like a ruby in the sun.

The scent is another surprise. It smells like a cherry. A chocolate covered cherry. It has a scent very similar to the Lush ‘Cherryish’ bodyscrub.

The ingredients are Aloe, Cocoa Absolute (chocolate), and Almond Oil. Its no wonder it smells like cherry.

The consistency is nice and thick.

I wish it was a bigger size. I love it.

It is pretty sweet. Some might find it too sweet. I dont find this to be the case. But i like things like Lush ‘Happy Blooming’ scent, which some find too sweet.

I pray that Lush will make this as an ‘in stores and online’ shower gel next Christmas.

Heres a video showing the consistency, lather, etc

Lord of Misrule body lotion

5 out of 5

Lush Uk made these exclusive lotions that they’ve never made before a couple of years ago around 2018.

The lord of Misrule lotions smells exactly like the shower gel and bath bomb. Made with Vanilla, Patchouli, and Black Pepper. Yummy.

I made a video showing it below. In the video i showed exactly how thick it is.

Here’s a scent family photo below. The lotion was made after i took this photo.
