Let them eat cake 

5 out of 5 rating 

This reminds me of the smell of spice cake. And it tastes good. It was very popular. 

I would buy more than one of these. 

Lush Times Xmas 2008: Orange and lemons, currants and sultanas, vanilla, sherry and treacle. This must be the tastiest lip balm on the planet. At Lush we have quite a lot of vegans working for us, that’s the people who won’t eat or use any animal products at all. As you can imagine it can be quite tricky for vegans to find lovely products but at Lush and B it’s quite easy. That’s except in the lip balm department, where all our 2008 products were vegetarian but not vegan. Our vegans also have a great fondness for cake; Sean’s non-cheesecake is the current favourite. So when Helen and Noriko blended out new vegan lip balm base, Helen decided to make it cake flavoured. We would use that old saying about killing two birds with one stone, but that really upsets the Lush vegans so we won’t.

Gingerbread House

4 out of 5 rating

This does smell like Gingerbread. When they’re made fresh the scent is yummy. I had an old one to compare a new one to. 

It’s so cute. It gets a lot of points for cute.🙂 It makes brownish water. It makes lots of bubbles. I love them and always buy one whenever lush makes them available, yet I don’t love them in a ‘stock up’ way. That’s why the 4 out of 5 rating.

Ingredients: Perfume, Ginger Oil Lemon Oil, Buchu Oil, Ginger Powder, Titanium Dioxide, *Cinnamal, *Limonene, Colour 15510 Sugar Sprinkles, Cinnamon Stick*Occurs naturally in essential oils

Lush Times: Christmas is a confectioner’s dream, especially with our Gingerbread House Bubble Bar. It is sweetly spiced like fresh gingerbread and there’s no wicked witch in sight, nor any sign of Hansel or Gretel eating her out of house and home.

Sugar Plum Fairy scrub

3.5 out of 5 rating



This has a nice floral scent.

Ingredients: Sugar, Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric Acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Styrax Resinoid (Liquidambar styraciflua), Vetivert Oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus aurantium amara), Plum Kernel Oil (Prunus domestica), Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Titanium Dioxide, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 14700, Colour 45410, Colour 17200


Lush Times: Our newest scrubber was inspired by the Tchaikovsky ballet. When Helen was inventing, she thought that plum kernel oil would work a treat because it moisturises the skin and makes it feel silky smooth and adds an almondy scent to the product.

This is a spicy, booz-y fragrance.  It smells like Christmas brandy punch or Norwegian Glogg.  It’s warming, just like a cup of Glogg would be in the wintertime.


Ingredients: Cinnamon Stick and Clove Infusion (Cinnamomum cassia, Eugenia caryophyllus), Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Fresh Organic Orange Juice (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Propylene Glycol, Red Wine, Fresh Organic Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Fine Sea Salt, Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus sinensis), Clove Leaf Oil (Eugenia caryophyllus), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Cinnamon Leaf Oil (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax tonkinensis pierre), Brandy, *Cinnamal, *Coumarin, *Eugenol, Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 14700, Methylparaben


Lush Times: Glögg is a Lush interpretation of a Swedish spin on festive mulled wine. It will make your body feel warmer as you inhale the spicy aroma. A bottle of Glogg is a fairly boozy cocktail to liven up Christmas baths and showers. We poured lashings of red wine and brandy in there to stimulate your body while you lather, with cinnamon and clove infusion for spice and fresh fruit juices to get you squeaky clean.
