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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Scent Family: Snowcake Perfume; Snowcake Soap; Snow On Snow Dusting Powder; Smitten Hand Cream; Oops! Almond Kisses Facial Moisturiser; Marzibain Bubble Bar Slice; Big Ed Yuletide Soap and so many more.
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.
Description: Catch a falling star and put it in your… bath. We have been working for a long time to make this Christmas bath melt – a shimmering bright star for an extra special bath filled with light and lustre. The shea butter fondant centre inside this bath melt is rich and moisturising, creating a soft and creamy bath. When the star melts, its silvery lustre spreads into the water creating a magical trail of starlight. Refreshing ginger and zesty lime oil inspire positivity and will also give you an extra boost. Close your eyes, make a wish, crush this melt under running water and watch as your bath turns into a turquoise, silvery pool of star light.
Review: This is a lovely, light green scent. Ths lovely bubble bar has the same scent as Lush’s new “Go Green” solid perfume scent.
It’s not as dark green and earthy as Tramp for instance. Nor is it a green floral such as Lush’s Flower Tub scent. It is , however, somewhat similar to “Green Day” bubble bar’s scent. There’s a light green mildly citrus and mildly sweet Frankincense. Green Green Bath Of Foam is more of a fresh, clean, tad citrussy scent with a smidgeon of frankincense holding it all together. It’s not too strong at all to me. Nor do I think this would be too anything to anyone. It’s just right. Green Green Bath Of Foam bubble bar makes a lovely Emerald coloured bath water. I love the Christmas Tree shape of the bar and the brightly green color with the little red peppercorns in it is festive looking for the Christmas holiday. Very pretty. I also think I’m old enough to remember the song “Green Green Grass of Home” so I love and appreciate the the witty name Lush they gave this Green Green Bath of Foam bubble bar. I give this bubble bar a 5 rating.
Lush Times Description: Introducing our new Go Green fragrance. New, fresh and reviving! Green Green Bath of Foam is scented with Go Green, a blend of smoky vetivert, sparkly grapefruit, uplifting neroli and invigorating cedar leaf. We make it look like a tiny fir tree decorated with peppercorns. They do nicely as yuletide decorations and you can use them up in January.
Lush Times: Skullduggery is an eerie but magical celebration for your bathtub. We used brightening and refreshing lime and neroli for the fragrance and olibanum (also known as frankincense resinoid) to help that citrusy smell stay on your skin until the witching hour and beyond. Lime oil is a popular ingredient in remedies to combat congested skin, cellulite or simply to wake you up! We use expensive neroli oil as it is one of the few essential oils to be scientifically proven to increase serotonin production in the brain – Arriba! Olibanum resinoid, otherwise known as frankincense, has a woody, slightly fruity aroma and covers the skin with a thin, protective film, softening the skin. It is extremely effective on sore, cracked, de-hydrated skin.
He has little swirly designs on his head. I tried to show that in the pic below.
Jack invented Calavera Bath Bomb last year for our Day of the Dead celebration; a very zesty number full of vibrant, bright colours to get you celebrating in the bath. He chose uplifting citrus oils for the fragrance, as they can help clear your head after a night of celebrating the dead (with one too many tequilas!)
Decorated skulls (or Calaveras) are iconic in Day of the Dead imagery – so this year, we took the concept of Jack’s Bath Bomb last year and gave it a slightly spookier look. This ballistic is limited edition so get it while you can.
This doesn’t make any colors in the bath, but it is cute.
Here’s a demo and review video i made of Skullduggery in the bath
Here’s a ‘scent Family portrait’ photo i took of all the Lush ‘Calacas scented things, except for the wonderful ‘Enchanter’ which is not in the family portrait. I want Lush to pleeeease make Enchanter again someday. I love Skullduggery and Enchanter equally. One has the super cute factor, and one is one of the most colorful lush bath bomb i’ve ever seen. 🙂
Minty mint! Sweet mint. Very refreshing on a hot day. And the water turns a gorgeous deep turquoise blue.
Lush times 2003 Description: Perhaps most of us wonder if there’s anything we can do to help bring about world peace. If we’re not world leaders or diplomats or international peace keepers then a good way to start would be to be pleasant to everyone we meet, well behaved on the roads, polite and considerate to our friends and families and kind to complete strangers. Scale it up a bit and we’re there! ‘What’s that got to do with a Bath Ballistic?’ you may ask. It’s like this. The World Piece is made with pine oil from Russia for courage and constancy and peppermint, symbol of friendship and love, from the USA. We have sweetie oil, from an Israeli grapefruit bred to remove sourness, mixed with a secret perfume from the edges of the Arabian Sahara Kenyan cypress oil is said to soothe anger and calm down irritable people who won’t stop talking and start listening. Use them yourselves and send them to people who have a direct influence on ending conflicts. (Just be careful not to label the package ‘Bath Product’ not ‘ballistic’ or ‘bomb’ because that wouldn’t help.
Here’s a demo and review video i made of this bath bomb in the bath
Basically you tear a piece off and rub on your body in the shower, or your hands in the sink. It lathers and cleans like soap.
The Red one is infused with the scent of the new lush shower gel “Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair’, the Yellow one has the ‘Beautiful’ shower gel scent, and the teal has the violet-y Tuca Tuca scent of “Don’t Rain on My Parade’ shower gel scent.
They make tiny ones now in 2021 called wash cards in the scents of all their perfumes.

4 out of 5 rating. I absolutely love that liquorice-like scent. See my tub video demo below
Take a night-time walk on the wild side, and breathe in the fresh air. Lemon oil puts a spring in your step, making you walk a little taller. As you soak up the countryside, lemongrass tones and fennel oil cleanses. Sett free in the bath, and release a secret message from the badgers, asking you to join forces in the fight for freedom. Things aren’t always black and white, but this is.
