3.5 out of 5 rating

sugarplumfairy-vi

 

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.

Glogg

5 out of 5 rating

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.

Lush Pud

Ingredients: £2.25 200g Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Aloe Vera Extract (Aloe barbadensis), Clove Powder (Eugenia caryophyllus), Lemon Peel Powder (Citrus limonum), Cassie Absolute (Acacia farnesiana), Benzoin Resinoid, (Styrax benzoin), Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia), Propylene Glycol, Benzyl Benzoate, Perfume, Candy Holly Leaf.

 

Review: I got a fresh one once and it changed my mind about the Pud. True, it leaves a brown ring to clean up. True, it makes the water poo brown. Turn off the lights, light a candle and use this. It smells like spice cake. And it lasts. I bathed my twins in this on Christmas and they smelled like two little spice cake sweeties all weekend. This is grand to combine with Christmas Cracker bubble bar, Orange and Spice soap or with a Jack Froth or Marziban bubble bar. It’s like bathing in Christmas desert.

Lush Times description: Looks like a pudding, smells like a pudding, fizzes like a spicy Bath Ballistic. Fill your bath with warm water and drop in the Ballistic for a fizzing, fragrant, relaxing soak.

 

Notes: The newer ones are much lighter brown. almost tan colored, and they smell more like Snowcake soap then spicy Christmas pudding. I like the original ones way better because it was spicy.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Soya Milk (Glycine soja), Sodium Stearate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Perfume, Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), Cinnamon Leaf Oil (Cinnamomum cassia), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Sodium Chloride, Titanium Dioxide, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 18050, Colour 61585,

 

Review: This smells just like the past Christmas soap called “Reddy for Christmas” It’s smells like a combination of red hots (from the cinnamon) and Angel’s Delight(because of something fruity). It’s scent lasts a medium amount of time and it’s also a medium strong soap scent. Love it.

Lush Times 2004 Description: This soap has the colour & scent of mulled wine. Clove bud and cinnamon leaf oils warm and ease stiff muscles on cold mornings; orange oil perks you up and tones your skin. Each Big (40kg!)Soap is decorated with a perfect, Japanese style white mountain to remind you to take this with you if you’re going skiing.

Snowcake

5 out of 5 rating

This shower gel has the wonderful scent of Snowcake soap and Marzibain bubble bar. Firstly I was never knocked out about Snowcake soap. It was just “Meh” to me for years. But this shower gel has changed my mind completely about the Snowcake scent. When I opened the bottle I couldn’t believe how fresh it smelled! Everythying good that I could smell about Snowcake was in this bottle of shower gel. It is nice and strong and fresh smelling. It’s not sweet.  It smells lightly of rose and almond.  A clean, comforting scent. It’s got that marzipan scent, with a bit of rose and a bit of almond. I’m a Snowcake believer. I give this 5 stars.

Scrumptious Smoothie


Ingredients: blueberry infusion, walnut oil, glycerine, vegetable soap, fresh orange juice, sodium lauryl sulphate, fresh banana, lime oil, lemon oil, methyl paraben, propyl paraben 

Review: Scrumptious Smoothie is nice. Mostly it smells of bananas with some citrussy notes that are probably coming from the blueberries. It’s the consistency of Sympathy for the Skin body lotion and it looks yummy. As you can see from the second pic my “pointy stick of doom” thickness test indicates that’s it’s 2nd in thickness to Whitewash, and thicker than Lush Lime smoothie. Scrumptious isn’t my Number 1 smoothie, but it is right up there with the best of the smoothies. It’s fun to use this. I would recommend getting it if you have the chance.

Lush Times 1999 description: Yes, really it’s a soap not an ice cream sundae. Bananas, lemons, limes, oranges, and blueberries make the Scrumptious eponymously scrumptious and clean your body too; the lemon exfoliates, walnut oil moisturizes while lime oil refreshes the skin and uplifts a tired mind.
