Lush Christmas 2018 and Halloween leaks!

I found these on Instagram lushleaks2018!

I wonder if it’s really true?

I know my peers are making videos about this but I have to admit I was a bit too lazy to set up so I decided to write my commentary instead.

If this all is really true I can’t wait to buy them at the Lush Creative Showcase 2018 in September.

My commentary is below.

Oh here’s another page with more new Lush 2018 products coming.

I am SO glad to see Bewitched coming back (again, IF this all is true) because I’ve been painfully squirreling away my three I had hoarded away. I pray this is true because as some of you know, the blackberryish frankincense combo scent is everything to me.

Mostly…I Cannot WAIT until the full Ectoplasm line. The first second I unboxed TreeD bath oil and Ectoplasm and sniffed them I stated to my friends on Facebook that a perfume would be a huge hit. I’m so so glad about this. And there may or may not be a shower creme of Ectoplasm coming for Halloween. Go to my Ectoplasm page for more specifics but it’s a different kind of citrus scent. No really, it’s really different. It’s got a very bright note in it. To my nose anyway, it’s neither lemony nor orangey, but not exactly lime either. More like grapefruit, with something added, litsea cubeba or something close to that.

More below..

Where do I start? I know, how about YOG NOG bubble bar?!?!?!?!

Heavenly, slightly buttery sweet, slightly dusted with Christmas spices.

I LIKE buttery.

*Cue fainting*

I love a spicy Christmas, a pink Christmas, a citrussy Christnas, or even a sweet Christmas. But Give me a Plum Christmas…or a Buttery Christmas ANY day.

Also, anything having the word ‘plum’ is already on my list to buy. I never NOT love anything Lush makes with plum in its name.

Maybe buttery plums.

Anyway, another item that’s got my eye is ‘Naughty Elf’. I’m hoping naughty elf has the Lush jilted elf jelly scent. It’s an odd, peppery little scent but I miss smelling it in the form of the Elf on a Shelf fun bar and the Jilted Elf jelly.

Hold on …a Butterball jelly?

I LOVE buttery. Thus I love Butterball ANY thing.

It looks like Candy Mountain bubble bar is coming back but apart from that there is a Shit load of NEW, or at least seemingly new products. I count 25. How about you? As LushLeaks states there may be more products than the ones listed, who knows.

Damnit, I want three to five of every bath bomb and bubble bar already! WHY do you DO this to me Lush!

I’m trying to get a sense on the theme this holiday… Its not ‘Space-y’ as last year’s theme. It’s not a particularly fruity theme at first glance, though the soaps have distinctly fruity qualities to their names certainly.

But I’m too distracted to think anymore about that because of the God Damn abundance of LIQUID shower gel goodness!!! Ahhhhhh!!! A Liquid Twilight/Sleepy shower CREME?! *Lip quivers* And supposedly, still a rumor at this point is the upcoming ‘Here Comes the Sun’ liquid shower gel. BUT…apparently we may also get Cinders shower gel! I love that spicy orange scent. While Cinders isn’t as spicy as Lush ‘Hot Toddy’ or ‘Glogg’, it is spicier than the usual orange scents, because of the addition of cinnamon. At least it used to have cinnamon. Lush has been changing their shower gel formulations so who knows.

It’s almost too good to be true.

It really does seem like they listened to all of us!

Additionally, I noticed a bomb called Puddy Holly. There WAS a Puddy Holly bath *bomb*, so I’m wondering if the bubble bar will be anything like it. It had a Snowcake-like scent with a little extra somethin somethin.

Kind of tired of the bubble spinners to be honest BUT…a Snowflake. I bet it’s absolutely gorgeous, all icing looking with sparkle.

Also, my Spidey senses tells me that many (not all) of these lovely, Yummy sounding soaps will all have new scents. Im wondering if Satsuma soap will be anything like their Satsuma bath bomb, which I LOVED.

And am I the only one who senses something else plum rain scented?

Dying to know what the two ‘gift bath bombs’ will be. I’m imagining actual bombs with some kind of gift shape?

Lastly, I always love the Lush bath melts and oils a LOT as some of you know so I can’t wait to try plum pudding bath melt.

Did I mention I like buttery things?

New products coming?

found this on Instagram.

As usual I’ll add more as I get it. My commentary on it below. 😊♥️

here are the Halloween & Christmas products!

Regarding the new regular products, I for one would LOVE a here comes the sun liquid shower gel. I even liked the naked version so I know a liquid version would be HEAVEN. I did a Video Review and close up sink demo of naked Here Comes the Sun Shower Gel. It has the same scent as Lush ‘Brightside’ bubble bar.

Milky bar soap used to be around before, it’s not new, but whatever 😉 my review of it is below.

Mostly…I Cannot WAIT until the full Ectoplasm line.

The first second I unboxed TreeD bath oil and Ectoplasm and sniffed them I stated to my friends on Facebook and Mark C that a perfume would be a huge hit. I’m so so glad about this. And there may or may not be a shower creme of Ectoplasm coming for Halloween. Go to my Ectoplasm page for more specifics but it’s a different kind of citrus scent. No really, it’s really different. It’s got a very bright note in it. To my nose anyway, it’s neither lemony nor orangey, but not exactly lime either. More like grapefruit, with some litsea cubeba or something close to that.

And an Ectoplasm washcard, which is a great way to try something without spending that much money. If you’d like to see a close up sink demo of a lush washcard, I have one here .

It looks like lush will be offering a different kind of single sized soap if I’m understanding it correctly. Interesting that they’re re-incorporating pre packaged soaps. They used to sell them like that and they had pretty designs on them. We shall see how these fare.

I have the Ros Argan naked body conditioner. I’ll demo and review that, and the rub rub rub naked body conditioner as soon as I can. I’m glad they’re bringing out this naked Ro’s. It’s the ONLY naked product I like more than it’s liquid version.

I’m also glad lush might be bringing back whipstick. It used to be called ‘chocolate whipstick’ and is the same scent as ‘heavenly bodies’ buttercream and ‘Sonic Death Monkey’ shower gel. It has more of a sweet orange scent with a wee bit of cocoa.

Hmm..What do you think about the charity pot naked body lotion you guys? I don’t know that I would she’ll out the money for this one without seeing how others like it first.

redients: Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Soya Milk, Sweet Orange Oil, Patchouli Oil, Synthetic Musk, Sodium Chloride, Glycerine, Perfume.

This is a very nice and different layering of scents. A subtle soapy, floral perfume on top with an orange oil undertone and a hot milk or caramel-y type of scent in there too.

Lush makes a bubble bar in this same scent. This is a glycerine soap, and this soap also seemed to dissolve faster too. I think everyone should try this once. I believe that Lush sold this soap when they were a company called “CTG”. There’s something about this soap that makes one want to have it again. It smells comforting.

This is a “love it or hate it” soap with lushies, there doesn’t seem to be many in between on this soap.

Lush Times 2006 description: A HUGE favourite: wash to make your skin smell sweet like chocolate. Delicious hand and body soap made with nutritious soya milk and sweet orange oil.

Website: For soft, chocolate-orange flavoured lips. Chocolate Whipstick is made for everyone who can’t have cocoa butter or lanolin in their balms. We make it with a lip-soothing infusion of oats, beautiful almond and wheatgerm oils plus beeswax for waterproofing. If that sounds a bit worthy then worry not; we livened it up with real chocolate, vanilla absolute and orange oil. Delicious and good for you a rare and lovely thing.

This is the same sweet orange and chocolate scent of Sonic deathonkey shower gel and heavenly bodies buttercream.

It’s a thicker lip balm, not so much thin and shiny but more thick and hoppy, more like the consistency of Rose lollipop lip balm from lush.

Ingredients: Oat Milk, Almond Oil, Beeswax, Chocolate, Glycerine, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Shea Butter, Honey, Wheatgerm Oil, Carnauba Wax, Flavour, Sodium Borate, Tangerine Oil, Orange, Vanilla Absolute, Cocoa absolute.

Instant Pot Osso Bucco over gnocchi Cacio e Pepe.

Tonight my husband made Osso Bucco in the IP and served prepared in the traditional manner. Plated with some fresh parsley and manchego cheese.

Most excellent.

A lot of people on Instagram asked to please make a video so Next time he cooks something like this I’m going to try to get it on video.

The gnocchi melted in my mouth and the cheesy manchego laden sauce was light and perfect for it. The Osso Bucco was very tender and juicy and the sauce had some big, bold flavors, such as basil and garlic.

Yes. This one will be made again because I’m not above begging when this dish is involved.

One can use the instant pot for the Osso Bucco part.

People have asked if my husband is a chef. The answer is No, he’s an Information Technology Security Engineer, who loves to cook. Fortunately for me 🙂 ♥️
