Here’s what got the most votes, and what was in our subscription box and my unboxing.

Maple Taffy

This has a slight smell of maple. The taste is alright, very light taste of maple. Nice consistency.


Ingredients:
Extra Virgin Coconut oil, Maple Syrup, Japan Wax, Shea Butter, Illipe Butter, Carnauba Wax, Flavour, Glycerine
*Occurs naturally in essential oils

Lush Times: We’ve got a special Christmas treat for our Canadian friends with our deliciously tasty Maple Taffy lip balm. Inspired by the tradition of tapping maple sap and making sweet candy treats from it, Helen thought we should create a moisturising balm using real maple syrup. The taste of this balm is unbelievably moreish. Mixed in with the syrup, we’ve added Japan and carnauba waxes with extra virgin coconut oil to form a moisturising layer on the lips and keep them safe from the nip of winter. Maple syrup is a good source of manganese and zinc. The syrup has a very distinctive flavour and there have been many attempts to make a similar synthetic flavour, but we prefer to use the natural maple syrup.

Snowdrop

Initially made in 2008 by Lush UK.

See a video link below.

It’s an all white bomb with a large polished sugar crystal on top. It doesn’t make bath art and it’s a fast fizzier. No matter who reviews this bomb, the consensus is that this smells heavenly. 😊 It’s orange and mint, which is a rare combination for Lush. It’s also slightly sweet. I love the scent.

Here’s a video of it from Comfortinscents on instagram

Ingredients: 2829 Snowdrop £2.95

Large Sugar Crystals, Perfume, Iridescent, Mandarin Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Peppermint Oil, Limonene, *Linalool.

Lush Times Xmas 2008: Astonishingly refreshing, head-clearing beauty! You might be tempted by the bright colours of the other Lush Ballistics, but promise us that you won’t miss out on the new Snowdrops bath. If the big sugar crystals don’t tempt you, and the iridescent sparkles aren’t your bag please take one home ewith you all the same. Drop it in the bath and your life will change for the better. Drop it in the bath and your life will change for the better. take the head clearing, reviving citrus scents of mandarin and grapefruit, then add a genius dash of peppermint and you have the most amazing, life affirming Ballistic ever to sneak up on you and give you the slap in the face that you need (metaphorically speaking of course). Once a Snowdrops bomb has woken you up in the morning, you will need to buy more. But no! These are seasonal specials! Buy a big airtight container and stock up on as many as you can carry – that’s if we haven’t got there first and bought them all.

Frangiapani

This perfume smells so good when i first spray it on. The white flowers in it are sweet and frarant on my arm. It smells so fresh and gorgeous.

here’s a video where i review the new exclusive Lush ‘Perfume Library’ perfumes including Frangiapani. Go to 26:42 in the video for the Fragiapani perfume review and description.

Polar Bear soap

5 out of 5 rating

Below is the 2020 Polar Bear soap. The 2021 Polar Bear soap soap will not be the same minty coco nutty yummy scent as last year, it will be Snow cake scented this year. it’s good to see snowcake soap again.

This isn’t the same scent as this Christmas ’PolarBear Plunge’ bubble bar. This one has almond and rose.

When i buy my Christmas products and they’re delivered- i’ll write my reviews, post my tub bath water photos and video demo here for you. 😊

It’s so cute. It didn’t dry out my skin like some Lush soaps can. It must be the addition of cocoa butter in this soap. along with the coconut oil. It feels good.

Snow Fairy solid shampoo

This is a solid, round shampoo bar like Lush makes, only this is pink, with a silver star and is made in the popular Snow Fairy Christmas shower gel scent.

Here are some other, past Christmas products with the Snow Fairy scent. If you’ve tried any of these you know what this shampoo bar will smell like 😊.

Snow Fairy Roll

This is a super large bubble bar. It’s like two or three regular Lush bubble bars. It smells just like the Lush Snow Fairy shower gel. Like pink buttery candy. Recently Lush has added lime oil to Snow Fairy to lend some acidic quality to the sweet vanilla scent.

It’s got white shimmer on the outside of the bar. I used half in my bath.

This is a bubble bar in the same design of the popular ‘Brightside’, ‘The Comforter’, Blue Skies & Fluffy White Clouds’. Only this one is bright pink! And it has the popular ‘Snow Fairy’ shower gel scent.

Here are some other Snow Fairy Lush products from past Christmases. If you’ve tried any one of these you know what this bubble bar will smell like.

Yog Nog body milk

5 out of 5 rating

I’ve tried two other exclusive Lush body milks and have recorded up close demos of the body milks below, so you can see how these body milks are.

When i buy my Christmas products and they’re delivered- i’ll write my reviews, post my tub bath water photos and video demo here for you. 😊

I’ve bought and used the exclusive Lush Yog Nog body lotion (in my group photo below) and it was too much for me. Too greasy. So i was wary about this yog nog body milk. But this sinks in so much better. And it leaves you feel moisturized but not greasy. And it smells delicious!

I took a photo of all the Lush Yog Nog products made throughout the years. If you’ve had one of these you know how this body milk will smell like.

heres a video of me showing up close a couple of Lush body milks.

Sugar Plum shower bomb

When i buy my Christmas products and they’re delivered- i’ll write my reviews, post my tub bath water photos and video demo here for you. 😊

This is a new, limited edition this year.

There is another shower bomb available this Christmas called Rudolph which is returning from last year.

The new Sugar Plum shower bomb is made in my favorite Lush ‘Plum Rain’ fragrance.

I took some photos of other things in this same scent, in case you’ve tried any of those you can know what this shower bomb smells like.

I’ve posted a video below of a Lush shower bomb demo i did, so you can see how these work. To help you decide if you want to spend your money on one, or not. 😊

Elfie Stick

4 out of 5 rating.

This is a new limited edition product this Christmas.

Lush made this reusable bubble bar for Christmas 2020. It’s got a nice fruity scent. Lush says it smells like pears and bananas. I think it smells more like pearl than banana, almost but not quite.

Orange scrub

5 out of 5 rating

This was a new, limited edition product this Christmas, but people liked it so much that Lush has made this a year round product!

It’s just like smelling a real peeled orange. It shares its scent with Lush ‘Brightside’ bubble bar and the discontinued ‘Easy Peeler’ scrub. Not too sweet, just fresh and orangey. Not fake but natural smelling. It smells juicy if that makes sense. It actually makes my mouth water.

It’s got coarse salt in it for exfoliating. So don’t scrub too hard.

This has orange oil, red Mandarin, tangerine oil, bergamot and orange peel! Oranges are one of my favorite smells and this smells so good like i could drink it. So incredible.

Angels Delight bath bomb

5 out of 5 rating

Made in the same scent as the Lush ‘Angel’s Delight soap from Christmases past.

For a smaller bath bomb it packs a punch. Deep pink color, gold glitter and that wonderful tangerine, fruit punch-like scent of Angel’s Delight scent that i loved so much in the soap of the same name and scent.

The bomb looks like the Large in store soap which was blue, purple, pink, orange and yellow and had golden crescent moons and stars embedded in it and half sticking out of it. Always got my vote for most awesome looking lush soap.

Roasting Chestnuts On An Open Fire

3 out of 5 rating

This is a new Lush limited edition product for Christmas 2020

This was made in the same yummy scent as Lush ‘Christmas Cake’ soap from long ago. But my nose does not smell the similarity. My nose smells the chestnuts, and i don’t like it.

It gets a point for being more moisturizing than most Lush shower gels but This shower gel is a no for me. I just can’t get past the smell.

Kinky Boots

5 out of 5 rating

see my 1:45 minute tub demo video below

This is a new Lush product.

This is a bubble bar and a bath melt in one! The red and white part is the bubble bar and the boots are the bath melt.

Made in the Lush ‘Sex Bomb’ fragrance.

The fragrance is a sexy floral. It’s made with jasmine, clary sage and gland gland. it’s floral but not sweet. very popular. Lush sells the sex bomb bath bomb as a regular year round item. It’s nice to have a bubble bar to go with the bath bomb in a bath.

The dark purple bath melt part made my skin SO soft, without being overly conditioning or greasy.

Initially the water became a pinkish red with just the bubble bar, and then when i added the boots part the water became a gorgeous purple.

Tick Tock

3.5 out of 5 rating

see my tub demo vid below

This has a great natural citrussy, orange scent. Not too sweet. It’s a very quick dissolving bomb! I like the extra fizzy fizzing noise. There’s a small amount of gold glitter here and there in the water also. There’s supposed to be popping candy but this one didn’t seem to have any.
I’d rate this a 3.5 out of 5
I’ll probably use either the new Christmas snow fairy bubble bar next video or the new Kinky Boots Christmas bubble bar.

I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

This bath bomb is new this Christmas. It’s made in the Lush ‘Space Girl’ bath bomb scent.

(The 2020 Halloween shower gel is also the same scent. )

I Want a Hippopotamus is such a different and cute idea. There’s a christmas song of the same name. Lush made him to have the Fruity Space Girl/Very Very Frightening/Goth Fairy Sparkle Bar/Stargazer scent.

Scent family. Famiky members Goth Fairy and Star bubble aren’t in the photo but are in photos below.

It’s a fruity scent that is different because it combines grapefruit citrus with black currant berries. And it also has some fragrant, green citrussy Bergamot.

Hippopotamus bath bomb does a slow melty type of fizzing. It also turns round and round in the tub. There are also popping candy in him. And there are a handful of gold stars too that float in the water.

The resulting water is a beautiful shade of lavender purple with a smattering of gold stars and some silvery lavender shimmer glittery.

I would definitely recommend this. The color is great, the scent is nice, and strong, and it’s one of the less costly bombs this Christmas.

I would give this a 5 out of 5 rating for those reasons.

These are the things missing in my scent family picture above, because i took pictures of them long ago and i’ve used them already.

Toffee Apple

This is a new lip scrub product this Halloween. It’s one of the first dual flavoredLush lip scrubs created. When i receive the one i bought on the website i’ll review it here.

This has an apple scent mixed with a carmel scent. Smells quite yummy. It does a great job of keeping my lips smooth. And it doesn’t taste bad either. I tried the green part first because that’s what is on the top. It doesn’t taste quite like apples, more of a general sweetness. It smells more like caramel apples more than it tastes like caramel apples. 😊 But it’s not bad, and it smells great!

What i love about it is how it moisturizes my lips. There’s something conditioning in here. It’s probably the jojoba oil and shea butter.

Bat Art

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

This Halloween we have a new bath bomb called Bat Art (a play on the term bath art). The scent of this bath bomb is the Lush ‘Junk’ perfume scent. I have a video of my thoughts on the Lush Junk perfume that i have. While it’s not my favorite scent, i’m certain this bath bomb is going to be awesome no matter what it’s scent is 😊.

Its made in the Lush ‘Junk’ perfume scent, which is a fruity herbal scent. It has mandarin orange oil, lemon oil, Rosemary and Sage.

This is a slow, melty fizz type of bath bomb. It takes a nice, long time floating on top of the water, moving slowly all around the tub.

As i watched it a ribbon of bright blue started winding through the purple water. Soon a tail of pink started to appear. Then the best part, a trail of thick silver glitter trailed from the dissolving bat.

Be spellbound by this bat bath bomb. Full of bath-art worthy surprises, deep glittery waters await with a fresh, herbal scent that lingers.

How to use: Run a bath and drop in to reveal a spectacle before you descend into the dark purple waters. The rosemary and sage scent of Junk perfume will cleanse your aura.

How to store: Keep cool and dry until ready to release this plastic-free Halloween bath bomb.

Sparkly black, Pink and blue, silver glitter, and dark purple water.

I love this!

It’s not as easy to clean the tub after letting the water out. Not because of the black color…but because of the glitter. Just Some light wiping down and then rinsing again was necessary to get all the glitter that was stuck to the bottom. But this bomb was so worth it.

I’m obsessed.
