Dirty Deal showder

See video soon

12.50 gpb / $19.00

weight 400g

For a limited time only on in 2016

I enjoyed washing with this. When combined with water and damp skin, the scent is a pretty and bright rose floral. turns from pink into a light purple kaolin and coconut oil. I know some of you are afraid of using things that might stain, but as you can see in the video, it rinses off clean, no color on my skin and none on my white sink.

Here’s a short 5 minute video using it at the sink.

Matroyshka Doll

Has the Appley ‘So White’ scent.  This was a soap that Lush sold in Christmas of 2010.

There are two pieces (one green and a smaller red ) soaps,  a doll-shaped ‘Cinders‘ bath bomb, and a doll-shaped, and a So White bath bomb.  all nested inside of each other, like a real Russian Matroyshka Doll. And the whole gift set was wrapped in a red scarf with designs on it.

Later Lush would make other products with this same scent;  So White bath bomb, So White perfume, So White shower gel, and Santa’s Belly jelly.

When the dark night rises, seek the fruity candy-scented salvation of this aloe vera and lime juice jelly and cover yourself in a sweet, carrageenan lather.

Description: This bath bomb, named after the ruler of the Pagan Feast of Fools, has a strange and magnificent fragrance created by Gorilla Perfumer Simon Constantine. This bomb will slowly dissolve to reveal a wine coloured centre, with the added sweetness of the world’s first fair trade vanilla absolute, perfectly balanced by the earthy scents of black pepper and patchouli oil.

The design of this bomb is inspired by the paper hats you find inside Christmas crackers, which were originally based on the crown the Lord of Misrule would wear whilst he presided over the court. Arriving at Halloween, the Lord of Misrule will be gracing us with his presence until the first signs of spring.

Yog Nog soap

Video review (60 seconds) below Quantitative Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Rapeseed Oil and Coconut Oil, Sorbitol, Soya yoghurt, Perfume, Clove Bud Oil, Ylang Ylang Oil, Gardenia Extract, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Chloride, EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Sodium Hydroxide, Eugenol, Linalool, Cocoa Powder, Nutmeg powder.

Such a yummy scent
I don’t know if this necessarily smells like Egg Nog, but it is yummy. The smell reminds me of Creme Brulee. That kind of carmalised sugar smell. It’s not drying, nor is it moisturizing, it’s somewhere in the middle. I like to use this soap in a bath with Yog Nog Fun bar for bubbles, and a Butterball bath bomb. Scrumptious!

Other Lush Items in this Yog Nog scent are
Yog Nog bath bomb
Yog Nog liquid perfume
Yog Nog solid perfume
Yog Nog Fun bar

Here’s a video i made of the Yog Nog soap and other things in this Yog Nog scent

Ghost Shower gel



Ghost Jelly



Here’s a video i made with all the “Ghost” scented products that Lush has made throughout the years.



Calacas means “Skull” in Spanish.  My family celebrates this day.





I gathered all the Calacas scented Lush products (except Enchanter) from my Lush museum and took this photo.

Here’s Day of the Dead perfume.

Here’s a picture i took of Lush “Calacas” jelly.  When you take it out of the container and plopped it out on a dish or counter top it has a skull shape and facial details.  Awesome.


This is what the Calacas skull jelly looks like still in the container while i shine some light in it. I liked the spooky effect it gave the jelly.




Lush Halloween online party, including the Lush “Magic” bath bomb, which is on my ‘top three Lush bath bombs of all time’ list.

Best Washes

See my demo video below. New at lush Oxford street and online at

Best Washes shower wash card.

Made with the Lush “Snow Fairy” scent.


Made from melon pull, not trees! You just tear off a small piece and wash with it like soap. Not only does it cleanse, but it’s moisturizing too, and your left with the scent of snow fairy your skin. Fairly economical too, a little tiny piece goes a long way.

Oral Pleasure – Tantric Toothy Tabs

See my video demo below.

2015 5.95 gbp
Ingredients: Kaolin, sodium bicarb, moringa powder, lycopodium powder, benzoin resin, geranium oil, bay oil, bergamot.

Lush description: Oral Pleasure- They’ll blow you away.
Passionfruit and electric daisies make this just the job for mouthwatering brushing.

I like these ‘Oral Pleasure’ tooth tablets. So far there hasn’t been any new toothy tabs that I don’t like. Oral Pleasure has a good taste, though there are some folks who prefer other of the new toothy tabs. I think it taste like sweet tarts candy. I think all of the new toothy tabs do. And the tingling feeling, it’s mild but it is noticeable. Odd feeling, good taste, if that makes sense.


See other Lush toothy tabs; Tooth Fairy strawberry toothy tabs, Bling! toothy tabs, Limelight toothy tabs.File Sep 23, 1 50 09 PM


Tooth Fairy Strawberry tooth powder

see my video demo below

Weight:  35g

Cost:  4.95 gbp / $7.50

Lush description:  Wish and swish.  Turn your toothbrush into a magic wand with sparkles and strawberries.



Review:  This is a fluoride and checmical free option for cleaning your teeth.  Basically you wet your toothbrush, then stick the bristles in the tooth powder, and then brush as usual.  It tastes like strawberry, and my teeth did feel squeaky clean afterwards. Even though it has sparkles the sparkle doesn’t stick to your teeth.  I’m definitely using this one up.  I have the other new toothy tabs to use before i can get another Toothy Fairy powder.  Video coming very soon.

Ingredients:  calcium carbonate, beetroot powder, sorbitol, snowflake lustre, arrowroot, lauroyl sarcosine, kaolin, sodium bicarbonate, strawberry extract, lemon oil, stevia, xylitol

After 8:30

Review: This is nice. I like it more than the other chocolate lush massage bars. It really does smells like peppermint and chocolate. It’s good for rubbing it on your man after a late dinner..

50g 2.75gpb

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate, Synthetic musk,Peppermint Oil, Perfume.

2001 Lush Times description: Still on the the best sellers, the old favourite After 8:30 attracts people with its mint chocolate scent. Often people want to know if it’s edible and while it wont’ do you any harm if you accidentally lick a body part covered in After 8:30, we’d recommend that you use it for what it does best, moisturizing your skin with cocoa butter and stimulating the mind and body with peppermint which was, incidentally, used by the ancient Hebrews in perfumes because of its aphrodisiac properties. It brings a dinner a deux to the perfect conclusion, and massaging your skin with chocolate is so much better for you than eating it.


Waylander Rhassoul

Ingredients: Rhassoul Mud Slurry , Rapeseed oil; Sunflower oil; Coconut oil , Pumice Powder , Water (Aqua) , Kaolin , Perfume , Patchouli Oil , Vetivert Oil.

Lush Description: Waylander Rhassoul is a soap for preparing bodies for adventure, especially if theyve not seen daylight for a while. What they need is a lovely, clay based soap made with Rhassoul Mud from the Atlas Mountains, a traditional Moroccan skin and scalp treatment which works marvels on troubled skin – perfumed with earthy patchouli oil, with pumice powder mixed in so when the Rhassoul mud washes away the dirt youre left with a hard, rocky centre of ground pumice to scrub away rough skin. Use it on feet, hands, elbows and knees (especially before using fake tan). At this point you start up a new, soft, creamy, muddy bar and youll find that your skin has already transformed itself magically from dull to bright.

Review: This soap is the epitome of an ‘Earthy’ smell.  Rasshoul smells of rich earth. Men would love this. And I love it. It’s a comforting and grounding scent.

This soap used to be called ‘Middle Earth Turns to Rock’.  But they changed the name in 2008 after one of my fellow forum members held in high esteem, Simon, ‘Waylander’ was his forum name.  He made his own armor.

Earth and Patchouli is exactly what this smells like. It’s gritty from the pumice bits so it’s good for exfoliating. This is also a good male scent. I have a love/hate relationship with Middle Earth, sometimes I gotta have it and sometimes not, but I gotta give it props for doing what it says and for being interesting to look at and it was rabidly popular in it’s day.


Lush Times 2005 description: At first waylander soap has the texture of smooth mud pies, the kind you made at the with your bucket and spade as a kid; the kaolin and rhassoul mud make it a wonderful, deep cleansing scrub, excellent for getting out engine oil, garden earth and paint. As you use it up you are left with more of the pumice powder and magically it turns into a bar of Rock soap; use Rock for scrubbing and smoothing your feet, elbows and really rough bits. Waylander has an earthy, spicy scent of an Arabian soukh; take advantage of its eastern magic to get your hands and feet their cleanest ever.

Beautiful Pea Green


Lush Spring 1999 UK description: Beautiful P Green Soap is very, very green – coloured with spinach and chlorophyll – made in a big block which looks rather like a deep, translucent freshwater pond with flowers and leaves floating on top. Fortunately, it doesn’t smell like one. However, it does have a deep, dark green scent [for those of you who smell in colour] with sandalwood, benzoin and a hint of tangerine, providing the delicious odour. Continuing the poetry theme, this one was inspired by The Owl and the Pussycat who, you may remember, went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat. (You get a slice off the 25 kilogram pond, not the whole thing, so you may get a slice of waxed flower or leaf.

(Dark leafy greens, light fruity note and slightly incensey)


Ingredients: vegetable soap, propylene glycol, water, perfume, sodium lauryl sulphate, sodium stearate, fresh spinach, sandalwood oil, tangerine oil, gardenia extract, chlorophyll, chrysanthemum flowers, labdanum.






Pooh Stix

See my Tub Demo Video of my Pooh Stix bath bomb below.

This bomb doesn’t color the water.  It’s an old school classic lush bomb from 1998.  It has stick pieces of cinnamon in the bath bomb.  They are supposed to represent a game of throwing six into the river on a bridge in the book Winnie the Pooh’.

This is a fast fizzer in the tub.  It fizzes away quickly.  It smells spicy and licorice-y.  I like black licorice and i love cinnamon.  I’ve used this to perfume the bathroom or my bedroom.  It smells yummy.

 Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Pimentoberry Oil, Patchouli Oil, Rosewood Oil, Liquorice Root (Glycyrrhiza blabra), Cinnamon Sticks (Cinnamonum zeylanicum), Aloe Vera Extract (Aloe barbadensis). 200g £1.50


Spring 1999 UK Lush Times: Those who have read A.A. Milne’s books will know the game, Pooh sticks, invented by the bear of the same name. Each player drops a stick into a stream from one side of the bridge then runs to the other side to see whose stick comes out first. Lush’s Pooh Stix Ballistics contain liquorice root and cinnamon sticks so you and your friends can play your own version in the bath! It is a beige Ballistic, with a lovely scent of heady labdanum, made with aloe vera to nourish the skin.


Spring 2000 UK Lush Times:

Referring, of course, to Winnie the Pooh. When you’ve been out tramping through the Wild Wood, up hill and down dale, exploring, looking for heffalumps or just at work, here’s an easy way to play a version of that famous game at home. Drop a Pooh Stix in your bath, let it dissolve and it will release cinnamon and liquorice sticklets into your bath. All you have to do is whizz your hand under the surface of the water to make the sticklets rush about in exciting ways and form new equally exciting patterns on the water. Hurrah! As an added bonus there’s Aloe Vera — just great for the skin — rosewood, which is said to be balancing and warming, patchouli to banish lethargy, and heady, spicy pimentoberry that warms the emotions and is said to be an aphrodisiac. So during and/or after your bath you can rush about in exciting ways with a close friend just like the sticklets.

Elixir bath melt


This was always a favorite of mine.  It’s like Ceridwen’s Cauldron bath met, but more exotic smelling.  It has one of my faovrite spices-Cardamom- and rose petals and ginger oil.  It was both yummy and gorgeous.

There was also an Elixir bubble bar, which was also beautiful in the bath.

And the blue is  a limited edition one i got for the Lush Holidays years ago.


Here’s a video (not a demo)

Candy Mountain

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate,Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume,Cocamide DEA, Titanium Dioxide, Vanilla Absolute,Methyl Ionone, Colour 45410, Colour 17200


Lush Description: Every year we give our best selling Creamy Candy Bar bubble bar a special outfit for Xmas.  Last year it was in the shape of a cane, this year we’ve turned it into a little swirly mountain peak. But whatever the shape and look, the thing that never changes is that lovely vanilla and candy floss smell and the mountains of soft bubbles.When the busy season has exhausted you, the hoards of shoppers have pushed and shoved you, and you think you can’t take any more – lie back in a Candy Mountain bath and feel its sweet and comforting hug.

And another version


And the non-holiday original in-store version



In the Lush Kitchen this week Sept 27 2015


This bath bomb was originally made in 2005

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Coconut Cream, Coriander Oil, Vetivert Oil , Orange Oil , Dessicated Coconut, Perfume.


Review:  Prounced foo-kay, (one of my friends went scuba diving there once) this ballistic was good.  Not fabulous, but nice. 🙂 It made the water a bit creamier than most lush ballistics, I think that was because of the coconut cream. The orange and coriander went well the coconut. It could’ve been just a tad stronger but it was nice. You could see the small pieces of dessicated coconut in the water. But the scent was so weak. This was DC’ed in 2005.


Lush Times 2005 description: The thought of Jack Constantine larging it in Asia provided the inspiration for this one. Phuket, Mark was heard to say, he’s off enjoying himself again.

Candy Floss Showder

A shower scrubbing powder or ‘Showder’ as Lush calls it. It’s a dry shower scrub of calamine powder and sugar.  This one has the Lush Snowfairy or Candyfluff scent. Its made with vanilla but it also has a bright, fruity smell. Very sweet.


The first time I saw this on the shelves at the first Lush superstore at Oxford Street on opening day in 2014. I thought it was the cutest product ever.  I thought it was such a cute design, it looks like a box of laundry soap.  I had to have one.  A kind young woman got it for me and sent it to me here in the U.S.

Even though theyre all empty now, i still display them. 😊

Also, Lush had four other showders.  One not in the picture below was called ‘Dirty Deal’, which was rose colored and turned purple when the water hit it. So. Freakin. Cool.

My favorite showder however was the ‘Washaccino’.  The lemon was great too.   The life’s a Beach was my least favorite, it was the only one of the four that was made with beach sand as the base, too scrathcy, whereas the others have a powdery soft texture. They all lather.   The washaccino is the lather..iest. And It like washing with silk.

Here’s a video i made of using the Candy Floss Showder on my arm at the sink.

Refresher Jelly

See my one minute video of it below
When it’s nice weather for ducks outside, head straight for the shower with this lemon jelly. Inside, a citrus explosion of fresh organic lemon infusion, lemon oil and organic lemon myrtle will blow the blues away. Why not take your jelly straight out of the fridge or freezer and into the bath or shower with you? The rush of cold on your skin will send blood pumping to the surface, increasing circulation and delivering a super-refreshed feeling.

List of ingredients
Fresh Organic Lemon Infusion, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Carrageenan Extract, Perfume, Lemon Oil, Rosewood Oil, Organic Lemon Myrtle Oil



This is not too sweet. It smells like real lemons.
