Infra Wig

4 out of 5 rating

see my 2 minute video of its consistency below

New for Spring 2021 in the Lush UK has introduced ‘Infra Wig’ soft styling gel. They’ve also introduced a second hair gel called just ‘Wig’, but they were out of ‘Wig’ when i was on the website.

Lush UK says Infra Wig is a ‘no crunch’ toning gel for white or gray hair. Gray or white hair, natural gray or dyed gray, has a tendency to turn yellowish depending on environmental factors.

They’ve also introduced a second hair gel called just ‘Wig’, but they were out of ‘Wig’ when i was on the website.

Orange, Grapefruit, Vanilla, Lemon Myrtle, Tonka.

I just took a pic of the Lush Hair Dressers Husband scent family.

Lush says you can use this on wet or dry hair, and it’s best to comb through hair but you can use your hands if you want.

i used it. It didn’t make my hair crunchy which is good.

It has the scent of the Lush exclusive ‘Hair Dresser’s Husband’ spray perfume from 2010. Recently Lush UK rereleased this perfume in newly designed bottles.

Support Bubble

5 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute tub demo video below

In 2021 The uk government allowed people to form “support bubbles” during the corona virus pandemic lockdown.

So if you were single or were caring or a relative you would be able to form a Support bubble and could visit the person even during lockdown.

So Alessandro at Lush UK was inspired by this an developed a bubble bar that looks like big bubbles.

With a fragrance of grapefruit and petitgrain to cheer you up. It’s the same scent as the Lush ‘Madame President’ bath bomb from Mother’s Day years ago. It’s not a sweet scent. It’s fruity and fresh, with petigrain which is sometimes called the bitter orange tree.

So this was a lockdown invention ❤️

It makes bright pink water, with silver sparkle.

And Tons of bubbles.

Lush Kitchen June 2021 subscription box voting

Here are the six products that we choose from to vote.

Here’s my vote

93,000 Miles shower jelly

4 out of 5

spicy. Cinnamon and mint. Kind of like Wiccy Magic muscles bar.

see my one minute video of it below
small size is $6.95 (3.50gbp) , large size is $11.95 (6.95 gbp)

After your muscles have been hitting the running tracks, have a run-in with this invigorating eucalyptus and mint jelly. Whether you like it fast or slow, whether you’ve completed a marathon or mastered a sprint finish this bright wobbly jelly will loosen aches and pains and send lingering cramp on its way. Take it straight out of the freezer and into the shower to enjoy the energising power of invigorating peppermint and warming spicy cinnamon leaf oils.

Antiphilitron liquid shampoo

2 out of 5

i wouldn’t recommend if you have dry hair like me. 

for greasy and normal hair

500g £6.65 250g £3.90 100g £2.05

Ingredients: fresh lemon peel decoction, sodium lauryl ether sulphate, fresh lemon juice, cocoamphocarboxy-glycinate, lemon oil, lauryl betaine, perfume, methyl & propyl paraben.

This was more of a clarifying shampoo, good for getting the greeen out of blonde hair if one swims alot in chlroined water. Great lemony scent. This was a bit harsh on my hair and left tons of tangles. Just not for my hair type is all.

Lush 1999 description: Antiphilitron is for getting your hair clean when other shampoos don’t quite cut the mustard. What its fresh lemon juice, lemon oil and organic lemon peel mixture is good at is really getting hair squeaky clean, washing away grease, city grime or country muck and even chlorine from swimming pools. It also slices right through the silicones that get dumped on your hair by modern shampoos that make your hair smooth and shiny at first but then build up to make it a bit sad and lifeless. Fresh lemons make Antiphilitron smell fantastic, they perk up your hair and scalp and they help to revive your sleepy head in the morning. To greasy hair and grubby hair we say get Antiphilitron and get lively!

Banana Moon soap

4 out of 5

This was sold for about five years in all stores as a regular year round item.

The Lush Kitchen subscription box has this up for the vote with 5 other products for the month of May/June 2021

Lush used to make them in long cylindrical poles and then the last year they were around they started making the boring rectangle. But the soap didn’t change, it was still nice.

Ingredients: Sodium Palm Kernelate, Propylene Glycol, Natural Yoghurt, Fresh Bananas (Musa paradisiaca), Sodium Stearate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Perfume, EDTA, Tetrasodium Editronate, Glycerine, Sodium Chloride, Titanium Dioxide, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides)

You have to get a good, fresh piece to appreciate this. It’s creamy, banana-y and nice. It should smell like banana runts even though it is a natural, not fake, smell. It’s also a gentle soap.

2006 LT description: One of the things that irritates us just slightly is when we’re not having a good day is that it’s perfectly legal to call something banana soap when it doesn’t have any bananas in it, but merely a dab of synthetic banana fragrance. Our banana soap has lots of fresh bananas in it; we mash them up, mix them with yoghurt, soap flakes and essential oils and make a truly bananafied, moisturizing soap that smells of bananas because it’s full of them.

Banana Moon scent family

Grass body lotion

3 out of 5 rating

This was an exclusive made in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen that i bought. They had numerous products turned into lotion that week in the kitchen in 2014.

This lotion is the least grass smelling of all the grass products.

Intergalactic shower gel

4 out of 5

The bath bomb is sweet, minty, woody and citrussy. However, the shower gel loses some of its sweetness, and its woodiness in the translation. So the shower gel is minty and herbal with a jint of grapefruit. Not as sweet though, and not as layered in scent. But nice smelling nonetheless. ❤️

The bath bomb is very popular because of its looks and its scent. Its cobalt blue and full of Glitter. Like a planet, in space, amongst the sparkly stars.

This was never sold in Lush stores. It was only made one time by the Lush UK Community favorites, along with four others.

Here’s what it looks like

Rough With the Smooth body scrub bar (Lord of Misrule scent)

4 out of 5

This smells so damn good omg. It has a good scrubbiness to it with tiny exfoliating bits along with cocoa butter. Use it in the shower. keep it in a soap dish to dry between uses.

It’s got that wonderful vanilla, black pepper and patchouli scent.

Grass lotion

3 out of 5

This was an exclusive made in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen that i bought. They had numerous products turned into lotion that week in the kitchen in 2014.

Grass lotion was made in the Lush ‘Grass’ scent, which smells like fresh, green grass.
It all started with the Grass bubble bar in 2014. The bubble bar was only available for awhile and only certain stores.
Then all the other products you see came after. ‘Autumn Leaf’, ‘Grass shampoo bar, The Mother’s day ‘Bubble Grub Bug’ bubble bar, ‘exclusive Lush ‘No Animal Testing’ soap, Grass shower gel, and not shown in my pic are the ‘Grass’ perfume oil, and the Grass body spray.

I LOVE the perfume oil best and this lotion the least. I don’t know if i bought one from a bad batch or what but it was very disappointing. Very thin, hardly any scent.

This lotion is the least ‘grass’ smelling of all the grass products.

Scent Family:

Lush Gumback Express shower smoothie, A Little Monkey bubble bar, and Banana Moon soap. All made in the same scent family.

Gumback Express was discontinued in the mid 2000’s and so was Banana Moon. I didn’t think Gumback Smootie smelled like bananas, but i did think the Banana moon did and Little Monkey did too. The soap was great for people with dry skin like me. Lush has made other banana product but they’re not in this scent family.

Made with orange peel and it smells SO good. If you like the smell of Lush ‘Orange’ liquid body scrub you’ll love the smell of this balm.

This was created by Alessandro from Lush.

It was included as an exclusive product in the April 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.

This has a totally different consistency than all the other Lush foot products. It’s not like a lotion in consistency. It’s the texture of a lip balm.

The best way to use this in my opinion is to have a foot soak at night, try to scrub away any rough skin on the feet , and when the foot soak is done and your dry your feet off, slather this foot balm on your feet and then put socks on overnight while you sleep.

When i did this my feet were so soft.

Sleepy bath oil tablet

5 out of 5 rating see my tub demo vid below 😊

Sleepy

I’ve used about all 12 of the Lush bath oil tablets, Bath baubles and solid bath oil non bons during the last several years, and this is one of my faves. i love the Twilight/Sleepy scent. It’s comforting, and creamy.

Sleepy ingredients

“If sleep is evading you, this combination of essential oils will help get you ready for a good night’s rest. The fragrance has been designed to help you sleep: lavender is a soothing, mind-clearing and calming fragrance, used in aromatherapy to treat insomnia and aid restful sleep, while benzoin and tonka call to mind a milky caramel malt drink.”

I haven’t seen a bath tablet in a couple of years so i was excited when i opened the March 2021 subscription box.

You can either put the whole thing in or cut it at each of the 3 lines to have enough for three baths.

For the tub demo i used 1/3 of the tablet. See my photos of it below.

I like how the tub wasn’t too slippery like some lush bath oils can be. It wasn’t oily feeling or too much. 1/3 of the tablet was just right. I would imagine using the whole thing would make the water even more purple. So pretty. It’s almost too pretty to use.

Bathos liquid bubble bath

5 out of 5


Ingredients:
Contains: violet leaf infusion, sodium lauryl ether sulphate, sea salt, lauryl betaine, violet leaf absolute, otto of rose, jasmine absolute, ylang ylang, bergamot oil, oil of cloves, sandalwood oil, cassie absolute, perfume, chlorophyllin, methyl paraben, propyl paraben.

It’s the liquid form that came before the solid purple bathos bar which Lush sold in their stores for 15 years.

Lush Times: Bathos is the bath foam for those candle-lit champagne swilling occasions when you feel like sharing the warm water with someone you’re fond of. It is a deep violet bath which smells deeply of violets with hints of soothing rose, calming jasmine, refreshing bergamot, rejuvenating sandalwood and cheering cassie, all of which are traditionally known in their native countries for their aphrodisiac qualities. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. 

:D

Review: The original was called Bathos liquid bubble bath. It’s the same fragrance as the more current purple “Bathos” bubble bar but this Bathos bath foam is in liquid form and it’s green in color.
It makes pretty good bubbles but I still think the solid bubble bars make more bubbles. It left the same lovely violet leaf and clove oil scent on my skin as the hard bubble bar. That’s one thing about Bathos, it’s not a light weight in the scent department, and the bath foam is no exception. I’m glad lush re-made this for us.

Bunny Bubble

4 out of 5 rating

Made primarily with vanilla. it’s white on the outside and pink on the inside.

it’s got tiny blue (real) flower petals which float around in the water when the tub is full.

This was originally made for Easter in 2015. It was remade in the Lush Kitchen in 2017. Also, This was voted on to have in the April 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box

This bunny has a white bubble bar covering a beautiful pink bubble bar inside.

It has the Creamy Candy bubble bar scent.

I LOVE this. I love the shock of pink underneath all that white coating. And i love the Creamy Candy scent. Much more than the Snow Fairy scent or the Candy Fluff scent.

Here’s a group of Easter things for 2015 and you can see Bunny Bubble on the left.

It makes a light/medium pink colored water with lots of white creamy bubbles and tiny blue, pink and yellow flower petals.

Sleep massage bar

5 out of 5 rating

See my Demo Vid below

I rub some on my forearms every night before bed and it smells like Heaven.

sleep

“Relax into a creamy Sleepy-scented massage, with chamomile essence water and super absorbent marula oil for soft skin. Better sleep and less stress are both associated with a regular rub-down. Why not team with the rest of the Sleepy family?”

I’m in total love with this new bar. It has everything we like about the Sleepy/Twilight scent, but turned up. The bar really brings out its creamy, sweet quality. I love it when a Lush scent meets the perfect product for it, so that it becomes the best way that the scent can possibly smell. 👍🏼

From Lush Oxford Street. All of the Lush massage bars have been redesigned a wee bit.

How to use:
Think of this as a solid massage oil, the butters and oils are designed to melt at body temperature so hold the bar between your hands to start melting before gliding over your skin, or someone else’s…

How to store:
Keep this cool and dry, the ideal place is a Lush tin until you are ready to indulge in a home spa treatment, or your skin is in need of a boost of hydration.

Melt warning:
This product is made with ingredients that allow it to soften around body temperature. During hot spells, it may melt. If you have any concerns please contact Customer Care.
