New Rose soap Valentine’s 2022

See my sink Demo Video below.

This is a new, limited edition soap that will be coming out for Valentines 2022.

I love the Lush Valentines soaps quite a bit. I’ve been buying Lush Valentines soaps every year since 2001. For the past few years Lush has reference to a Rose on their Valentines soap. This one is beautiful with a pink color and a rose carving on top in a different shade of pink. I can’t wait to see the whole extra large store display soap of this. I will take make a vid of it at the sink for you.

I would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating. If it was just a bit stronger in scent i’d give it a 5.

This soap was made with the Lush ‘Softy’ scent. It’s a beautiful light rose, orange, and ylang ylang scent. It’s a soft powdery rose with little bits of rose petals in it.

Lush has made a few items in the ‘Softy’ scent;

Christmas Hedgehog bubble bar

Noriko soap

Powder Puff Deoderant – I’m adding my pic and review of this tomorrow.

Eyeball bath bomb

Softy bath bomb

Side View There is gold dust on the side

It kind of smells similar to the Lush Unicorn Horn bubble bar but with rose.

I can definitely smell the lavender in this soap, and the orange oil is nice, and it’s subtle. The ylang ylang is present too.

It’s no wonder i love this soap. At one point long ago my favorite lush bath bomb was Softy.

Softy

4 out of 5 rating

This was one of my favorite bath bombs in 2003. To me it was so soft, feminine and pretty. It was a light, beautiful Rose scent, with some yummy orange oil and floral ylang ylang.

Lush made a few other products in this same scent; Eyeball bath bomb, Christmas Hedgehog bubble bar, Powder Puff Deo powder, Noriko soap, and the Valentine 2022 ‘Rose’ soap.

Lush sold this for a few years and then discontinued it in mid to late 2000’s to make room for new bath bomb.

Softy has pieces of rose petals in it. No glitter, no bath art, but it makes a pretty pale pink water. If you don’t like bits in your bath you can put it in a kitchen strainer and let the water pour on it so that just the bath bomb part is dissolved in your bath tub.

Christmas Hedgehog

4 out of 5 rating

This is Hedgehog bubble bar from the 2010’s.

This is such a cute little guy. He’s white and blue with white small shimmer mixed in with the white part, and bigger chunkier white glitter on top.

This bubble bar has the Lush classic ‘Softy’ bath bomb scent, which is made from rose, orange oil and ylang ylang.

I liked him a lot. The scent wasn’t quite as lovely as the softy bath bomb. The scent was more faint than in the bath bomb. But he was cute all the same. He had blue and green inside.

Other products in this scent: Softy, Eyeball, Powder Puff, Noriko soap, and the Valentine 2022 ‘Rose’ soap

Here is a Tub Demo Video that i made for you

Noriko soap

Noriko

Ingredients: rice decoction, sake, tofu, agar decoction, perfume, ylang ylang petal oil, lavender oil, rose absolute, glycerine, sodium chloride, sodium lauryl sulfate, tetrasodium EDTA, titanium dioxide, gardenia extract, color 18050 & 61585

2001 Yuletide LT description: One of the best things to turn up on Lush’s doorstep in 2001 was Noriko from our Japanese factory with her boundless enthusiasm for creating new Lush products. She will be absolutely delighted and hugely embarrassed to find that her massive fruity soap, decorated with jellies (which she calls “jerries”) has been named after her. If you like your soap smooth, creamy, and bursting with flowers then for this one with its delicious scents of far eastern ylang ylang and calming lavender all mixed in with rice, organic tofu (soya bean curd), and sake, Japanese wine.

LT 2004 description: This handmade soap has coloured seaweed jellies on top, and the scent of orange, ylang ylang, lavender and rose. We relished the softening feeling on our skin of Noriko’s uniquely Japanese mix: rice, sake, tofu and agar seaweed.

2001 Review: The large truckle of the instore Noriko soap had “jellies” on the top of various colors. This is such a fresh and feminine scent. It reminds me of walking in a garden area of greenery and flowers, right after it rains. Noriko seems to be one of two soaps that lather more than all the other Lush soaps. The other being Milko in my opinion. You have to have this fresh because it’s a delicate scent.

Orange, Lavender, ylang ylang and rose makes this soap smell just like the “Softy” ballistic but more subtle and not rose.

2004 Review: It’s less fresh rain and more floral then the original. Lovely. Again, this needs to be tried fresh because it’s a light rain-like scent, otherwise it won’t smell like anything but soap. Other Lush products in this scent; Christmas Softy bath bomb, Hedgehog bubble bar, Powder Puff deo, Eyeball bath bomb, Valentines 2022 Rose soap.

Luxe bath bomb

4 out of 5 rating

The New Lush Cosmetics ‘Luxe’ bath bomb. I just uploaded a Tub Demo of it on my lushalot youtube channel down below.

This is one of 5 new bath bombs in the U.S. and 7 in the UK

Its gorgeous in the tub holy cow. Its made with the Lush classic ‘Lust’ perfume scent. Lots of Jasmine.

How to use:

Run your bath and drop in this seductive cocktail of jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood. The hydrating boost bakuchi oil brings benefits that go way beyond bathing in this luxury bath bomb.

How to store:

Keep cool and dry until you are ready for the ultimate levelled up bathing luxury.

Did you know?

Bakuchi oil is a great natural alternative to Retinol, and has many of the same benefits such as stimulating collagen production, reducing pigmentation and promoting skin elasticity.

Its absolutely beautiful and has a different color scheme for Lush. The only reason its not a 5 out of 5 is because i have always absolutely hated the Lush ‘Lust’ scent, which Luxe is made from. 😄 But i wanted you to see how beautiful it is in the tub so..

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Perfume,

Rose Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Sandalwood Oil, Cold Pressed Bakuchi Oil.

Alcohol, *Citronellol, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 77491, Colour 45410:2, Colour 42090:2, Colour 15850:1, Colour 17200, Colour 19140:1, Colour 42090, Colour 77499, Colour 77266

Its a muted purple cor with gold sparkle. 😍

The color sticks to the side of the tub so there is a bit of clean up.involved after.

Pineapple Grunt

Lush “Pineapple Grunt” soap.

Up for the vote this week for the January 2022 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

Excuse the bad quality of my photos, i didnt really know how to take a picture back then 20 years ago 😄

Discontinued in 2002, remade one time only for Lush forum members in 2004. Was never made in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen.

Smells like real pineapple and it has real pineapple juice. Its not a strong scent though. Once it ages it takes on a nutty scent (still nice though). I love this soap. This a popular soap back in the day. 🍍

Ingredients: Fresh Pineapple, Vetivert Oil, Water, Glycerine, Sodium Chloride, Gardenia Extract, Tetrasodium EDTA, Perfume.

1999 Lush Times description: If you suspect that you may end up in a dreary place for some reason or other – there are a few Lush products that you should bring along. One is the Big Blue Ballistic, another is the Floating Island Luxury Bath Melt and the third is Pineapple Grunt soap. With its chunks of fresh, organic pineapple and scent of calming vetivert oil, made from a fragrant, Indian grass, you can wash yourself down with Pineapple Grunt in the shower and imagine you’ve been caught in a tropical rainstorm. Your skin will smell as if you’ve been massaged with the local perfumes, and will feel extra clean after cleansing with pineapple.

This is what the store sized display soap loojed oike. It looked lije a giant slice of pibeapple. And then the store people would cut 100g, 200g, or huge 500g pieces off of the ring for you. 😊

Squid Games shower jelly

5 out of 5 rating see my demo video below

Its a large size jelly in the shape of a squid.

It has the scent of ylang ylang flower, patchouli, lemongrass and Ho wood. It smells like an expensive mens cologne or something. I love the scent.

Also, the scent has somestaying power after you use it which i like.

I Would give this a high rating because its really cute, it works well without drying my skin, it smells great and the scent lasts.

Its scent is from another product that Lush made before they called themselves Lush, when they were a company called Cosmetics To Go in the 90’s. The product was called ‘Damp Squid’ and it was a bath bomb.

I still have my old pictures of my Damp Squid bath bomb.

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.

Posh chocolate body wash

5 out of 5 star rating See my Demo Video below

This deliciously self-centred chocolate body wash is packed with aloe vera and glycerine to soften and hydrate delicate skin.

How to use:

Completely vegan friendly, this is a great body wash for dry skin. Scoop out a good handful and inhale the rich cocoa aroma while you work it all over your body then rinse off. 

  • VEGAN
  • 100% RECYCLED POT

Deliciously hydrating and softening. Thisis the best product Lush has created in quite awhile. This smells more like straight up chocolate than any of the other chocolate things that Lush has made. It does remind me of the scent of Lush Walter Bunny scrub.

I describe the texture in my video below but it feels like a chocolate mouse in thepot and feels like silk when you rub it on your body.

Sleepy bath bomb

This is one of many products only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar gift set.

Lush Uk had a Sleepy pop up event in September October 2021 time frame. They had many exclusive Sleepy products not available in stores. This Sleepy bomb was one of them. Lush Uk decided to add it to the Christmas Advent Calendar gift set as an exclusive amongst all the other goodies in the calendar gift set.

See below for my 3 minute Tub Demo Video.

Sleepy bomb reminds me of the Lush Uk ‘Sleeping Giant’ bath bomb. I think Sleepy bomb is a miniature version of it.

This Sleepy bomb has such a gorgeous periwinkle blue color! 😍

Sleepy is a quiet, slow melting kind of bomb, not the fast fizzing type.

It looks like some kind of melting blackberry dessert doesn’t it? 😊

There’s a bit of very dark blue almost black color inside the bath bomb that’s surprising.

There are multiple colors in here, violet, lilac, black, gold. Lots of bath art opportunities 😄

The gold is actually shimmery stuff. And the gold shimmer gets dispersed in the purple water and it’s just beautiful.

I’d rate this a 5 out of 5 rating.

These aren’t like the Lush halloween 2021 products which glow under UV light. These are glow in the dark. Here is what the stars and moon look when you turn off the lights.

Some folks were asking me what these moon and stars are made out of. Many folks thought they were a bath melt as i did, but they are made out of what feels like plastic. They don’t melt.

Twilight

This above is ‘Twilight’ bath bomb sold in Lush stores. The ‘Sleepy’ bomb is the same scent. Both made with floral Ylang Ylang , Sweet creamy Tonka bean, and Bright herbal Lavendar. I asked the creator Alessandro and he stated that ‘Yes. They are the same scent’, just different names. Not complaining. I’d love to use both of these in a bath cocktail. Unfortunately there is only one in the Advent Calendar gift set.

Lush will be releasing this in November along with four other bath bombs. Ive used three or four of them so far. As i get more info on the two i havent used yet ill post it on this page.

These pics are from Lush Japan .

Bathing is believing, run your bath and drop in. With a playful perfume of bergamot, davana and jasmine, reveal your magic with this unicorn bath bomb.

This bath bomb is made with the classic Lush ‘Cocktail’ scent, and then Lush adds some strawberry to that. It’s a sweet, slightly fruity floral, with some slight earthiness. Rose, Jasmine, Ho Wood

You Shall Go to the Ball

5 out of 5 see my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below

Looking like Cinderella’s carriage, i love the new Strawberry scent. Its different than any other Lush strawberry scent. Its almost like they mixed lush rose jam and lush strawberry twin tub jelly. Those notes mixed together.

I don’t think i’ve ever seen any Lush bath bomb that was so intricately designed. And the color combination of that shade of pink with a beautiful dusting of gold.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Tonka Absolute, Soybean Flour, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Talc, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Dipropylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Tin Oxide, Coumarin, Geraniol, *Limonene, Colour 47005:1, Colour 45410:1, Colour 45410:2, Colour 45410, Colour 15850:1, Colour 77491, Colour 17200

After my bath i ordered 3 more of this bath bomb. Who knows. i might buy more right before they go away in January.

This is a slow melty foamed type of bath bomb. I love that type. Those usually have the best bath art.

I noticed that this has pink shimmer in the water as well as gold shimmer! It doesn’t stick to your skin which is good. It’s not the most glitter i’ve seen in a lush bath bomb but it’s not the least amount either.

The pink and yellow combine to make a deep orange colored water, with pink and gold sparkles.

New Lush Sugar Roll Facial Cleansers

4 out of 5 rating

Lush introduced some new products at their two superstores. including what Lush calls ‘Sugar Roll Cleansers’ for use on the face.

There are five kinds at the superstores as you can see in the picture at the top of this page. Lush uk decided to put these two of the five on their retail websites.

I got a couple from Lush USA since Lush uk couldn’t send this overseas in the heat. You can see the difference in the flowers between the Uk and the North American.ones.

You use them the same as the classic Lush Angels on Bare Skin facial cleanser.

Heres a video where i show you up close

Hot Toddy

4 out of 5 rating. smells of cloves, cinnamon

This is such a popular lush product with Lushies. It was never sold as a regular year round product, it was a Mid to late 2000’s Christmas limited edition bubble bar.

This came out for Yule 2003. It smells nice and warm for the winter months. It smells spicy, orangey, foody, and a little spicy like Coca Cola or something. I am the only Old skool Lushie on the planet who doesn’t think Hot Toddy is the best thing since sliced bread. That said I do think it’s good. I would rate it a 4 out of 5 rating, meaning i would sugfest you try it, i may buy one more. Versus a 5 out of 5 rating would mean i would be buying five or more of them to stock up.

Someone asked me if i thought Hot Toddy smelled the same as the Lush ‘Jolly’ shower gel. They share similar ingredients like orange oil, cinnamon, and clove but Jolly is heavier on the orange, while Hot Toddy is a tad heavier on the cinnamon.

Lush Times description: The hot toddy is our Celtic grandmother’s cure for a cold or a chill: whiskey (or whisky), lemon juice, honey and hot water. The Lush Hot Toddy will suit even the tee-total grans because you don’t drink it, you crumble it under the running water to make a warm, fruity, spicy bath with lemon peel, muscovada sugar, cinnamon, lime, clove and a pinch of paprika and a hint of soothing patchouli. It takes the chill off after coming in from the cold.

Ingredients: 100g £1.95

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Clove Leaf Oil, Patchouli Oil, Lime Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Orange Oil, Muscovada Sugar, Lemon Peel, Crushed Cinnamon, Paprika Oleoresin.

The previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen made the hot toddy bubble bar again and the shower gel a couple of times in 2014, and 2016.

Lush made a shower gel (and a few other things) in tge mid 2000’s from this scent because Lushies were begging for a shower gel in the same scent.

Other Lush products in this same scent family are Holly Golightly bubble bar, Melting Snowman bath melt, orange and spice bath melt tablet’
