Sugar Plum Fairy scrub

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.

glogg-vi

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

3.5 out of 5 rating

lushpud650

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.

lushpudcloseup

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.

Spice Mountain

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.

lushspicemountain2

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

lushsnowcakesg1

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.

Star Light, Star Bright

5 out of 5 rating. See my demo video below. 


One of only three or four lush products ever, that are all silver.
This has lime and ginger, so it smells bright. And the silver shimmer in the water is awesome.


 

 

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Organic Shea Butter, Laureth 4, Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Perfume, Chinese Ginger Oil, Lavender Oil, Persian Lime Oil,Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Titanium Dioxide, Colour 42090, Snowflake Lustre, Silver Lustre, *Citral, *Citronellol, Geraniol, *Coumarin, *Limonene,*Linalool

 

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.

 

Here’s a demo video of this 

Green Green bath of Foam

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, *Limonene, Cocamide DEA, Grapefruit Oil (Citrus grandis), Bergamot Oil (Citrus bergamia), Frankincense Oil (Boswelia carterii), *Linalool, Hydroxycitronellol, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), D&C Green No. 8, D&C Blue No.1, Lustre Holly Sparkle (Potassium Silicate, Titanium Dioxide, FD&C Yellow No.5, FD&C Blue No.1), Red Peppercorns (Piper Nigrum).


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.

Road From Damascus bath oil

4 out of 5 rating. see my demo video

Lush Description; “With Damascus rose and bitter orange you’ll be whisked away momentarily from this ever changing world.”

rosed

this has a lovely, fresh floral fragrance of rose, violet and orange flower.

It was made in the new, upcoming perfume fragrance of the same name.

I’m glad I was able to get a few

Here’s my demo video of this bath oil

 

The Lush Creative Showcase and Oxford Street bubble bar called ‘Magic Coloured’ bubbles was made in the Road From Damascus scent.

Skullduggery



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.

 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. 🙂

Green Day

5 out of 5 ratingGreen Day is a lovely deep forest green bar. The scent of Green Day seems to be Lush’s answer to our cries to make more “green” smelling or “earthy” smelling products. This smells like a scent the guys would like too. This is more of a bright, woodsy green. Not really a grassy scent. Green Day gives the water a medium deep green color. The smell lasts on the skin awhile too. Green Day does not smell like any Lush product  Vegan 100g 

 Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Patchouli Oil, Cedarwood Oil, Nettle Absolute, Clary Sage Oil 

Lush 2006 description: Take a good soak in a clarifyingly woody patchouli, nettle, clary sage and cedarwood bath. Green Days brings the calm and stillness of the forest to your bathroom.

World Piece


Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Pine Oil (Pinus), Sweetie Oil (Citrus grandis), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Cypress Oil (Cupressus sempervirens), Perfume, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 42045.


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

Paper Soap

Basically you tear a piece off and rub on your body in the shower, or your hands in the sink.  

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.

Lush Galaxy

” ‘Twas noontide of summer, And mid-time of night; 

And stars, in their orbits, 

Shone pale, thro’ the light 

Of the brighter, cold moon, 

‘Mid planets her slaves, 

Herself in the Heavens, 

Her beam on the waves. ”

Each of these is a Lush product?

Can anyone name them all? 

May Day

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.
