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
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’
Lush ‘Happy Skin’ facial exfoliator
This is a Lush Uk subscription box exclusive for September 2021.
Have you tried it? What do you think?
I like this. It smells kind of like theres a bit of honey in it. I dont believe there is any in this but that’s what it smells like.
Its got very fine exfoliation from the finely ground tagua beans.
Its a thick consistency and my skin feels great after i used it. My pores are smaller and my skin issoft. I do need moidturizer after using it but i always use moisturizer throughout the day anyway so.
If youve tried Lush Smugglers Soul facial exfoliator this Happy Skin is the same fineness of scrub but its a thicker consistency and it smells different. Like a light smell of nuts and honey.

See my 4 minute Up close sink demo where i wash my hands with it and you can see how much lather it has, how thick it is, etc.
Lush has created three new Christmas shower gels this year which are different than anything theyve made before. One of them is only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar Gift. There are 6-8 exclusive Christmas products only available in the Advent calendar.
Merry Christmas shower gel is quite a surprise to me. There are so many things about it that i like.
The color is a rich red, and it has gold sparkles in it. They settle at the bottom but i just shake it up to distribute the sparkke all throughout the shower gel.
Goodness. It looks like a ruby in the sun.
The scent is another surprise. It smells like a cherry. A chocolate covered cherry. It has a scent very similar to the Lush ‘Cherryish’ bodyscrub.
The ingredients are Aloe, Cocoa Absolute (chocolate), and Almond Oil. Its no wonder it smells like cherry.
The consistency is nice and thick.
I wish it was a bigger size. I love it.
It is pretty sweet. Some might find it too sweet. I dont find this to be the case. But i like things like Lush ‘Happy Blooming’ scent, which some find too sweet.
I pray that Lush will make this as an ‘in stores and online’ shower gel next Christmas.
Heres a video showing the consistency, lather, etc
In an 1 1/2 hour and a half the unboxing will be premiering on my lushalot youtube channel. i’ll also add the video to my Lush Christmas 2021 page here

Lush Uk made these exclusive lotions that they’ve never made before a couple of years ago around 2018.
The lord of Misrule lotions smells exactly like the shower gel and bath bomb. Made with Vanilla, Patchouli, and Black Pepper. Yummy.
I made a video showing it below. In the video i showed exactly how thick it is.
Here’s a scent family photo below. The lotion was made after i took this photo.

Lush ‘Avobath’ bath bomb 2003
5 out of 5
Lush introduced this bath bomb around 2008 or 2009. That’s when i had my first Twilight bomb. The name comes from the time there was a very popular new movie called ‘Twilight’.
When Lush first made their Twilight bath bomb it was very popular with Lushies, and its maintained the same popularity ever since.
Not only does it look like the night sky (twilight) with stars and moons on the outside of the bomb, it also makes two different colors in the tub as it dissolves; pink and blue, but it also has a beautiful silver shimmer in the water. The blue and pink eventually mix in the water to become a lavender color.
Then there is the scent. Its a genius mix of bright herbal fragrance of lavender which promotes relaxation and sleep but there is also Tonka bean which smells similar to vanilla bean but tonka is more of a caramely scent. Then lastly there is the lovely floral notefrom the ylang ylang flower. The twilight fragrance is only subtley sweet and comforting.
Its such a gorgeous scent that Lush has used in many other products that i’ll list below which they have made. I also show these products in my scent family photos below.

Sleepy bath bomb

Sleepy shower bomb
Lush has recently (in 2020) changed the name from Twilight to ‘Sleepy’. The reason they changed it may have somethibg to do with the movie’s copyright s.
But the President/CEO of Lush said that sleepy is the same scent as twilight, only the name has changed.
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lavender Oil, Benzoin resinoid, Tonka Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil, Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, *Coumarin, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42090, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Colour 45410, Iridescent Glitter
Lush Times: Everyone seems to be in love with twilight at the moment. Whether it’s the film series or that enchanting period betwixt day and night, we can’t work it out. If you’re stressed out and feeling like a member of the un-dead, this relaxing ballistic will stake all of your troubles and scatter them to the winds with scents of lavender and Ovaltine.
The Big Snow Fairy Roll is new. It’s a 1 kilo version of the Snow Fairy Roll. The ‘regular size’ Snow Fairy Roll is like two regular bubble bars and THIS Big SFR is even more huge.
Its the same size as this Big Comforter in my phoro below.

This bath bomb is new for Halloween this year.
It has an array of colors inside this white bath bomb.
This has a citrus scent made with lemongrass, lemon and lime. Iys the same ecent as the Lush ‘You’ve Been Mangoed’ bath oil solid. Its not a sweet citrus scent. Its very tart.
Its a new ghost design.

It makes a gradient of pink, blue and purple foam. GORGEOUS!
The end result is a periwinkle blue water with silvery blue spakles.
My Tub Demo
4 out of 5 rating. my 2 minute Tub Demo Video is at the bottom of this page. I hope it helps.
I like this bubble bar. Mostly because one of my favorite lush products is Happy Blooming shower jelly, and this Screamo bubble bar was made with that same cherryish scent.
initially when i sniffed it i smelled a licorice kind of scent. But as i continued to sniff it i can definitely smell the Happy Blooming scent.
This bubble bar is very fragrant. It’s sweet and cherry.
This is a reusable type of lush bubble bar, not a regular, break it up with your hand squishy type of Lush bubble bar.
When i got it it had the stick to hold it but when i picked it up to use it the stick came out and a couple of small pieces broke off. I was like ‘oh no’ but it didn’t hurt anything i just held it in my hand instead.
Lush description: Giggle with a ghost whilst blowing cherry scented bubbles through the mouth of the scream. Swish the blower into the bath water to create purple bubbles that will bring joy to even the darkest of Halloween nights.
When i saw the color the water was turning i said ‘yeah baby!’ 😄 And the longer i left it in the water stream the darker the purple color got.
It made bubbles like this and afterwards the bubble bar looked like i didn’t even use it. So this bubble bar is good for at least 2 baths.
Here is my 2 minute Tub Demo Video. I hope it helps.

What a cute idea!
The wiggly nature of the jelly makes a great octopus 😄
Firstly, i was pleasantly surprised that this smells so good.
I figured it would be a scent already seen in a jelly. But its a great scent of passion fruit, black currant, vanilla and orange.
It smells like a fruit candy, but not in a fake candyish way. Its a natural sweet, fruity fragrance.
This afternoon I was told by Alessandro the Creator of this Lush Monster Octopus jelly that it’s “Not the scent of Very Very Frightening shower gel, It’s a new fragrance. Similar to the old passion fruit lip balm, but it’s actually new.”
I love the color! Red and purple are my favorite colors. Its got No glitter for anyone who is curious.
Ive discovered that the Octopus tentacles make it easier to hold on to when using it.
You can use it at room temperature, cooled in the fridge on hot days, or even frozen.
Ive used the other Lush jellies by slicing into small pieces and putting about a tablespoon in a plastic kitchen seive and hold the seive under the stream of water coming out of the bathtub faucet. And down below at water level in the tub it starts to make a light foam.
But with this here Monster Octopus jelly I just held the whole dang thing in the bath faucet stream. 😄 And it worked nicely.
Its also easier to hold the whole thing in the shower too to wash with it like a bar of soap.
Glycerine, Fresh Passion Fruit Infusion, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Carrageenan Extract, Perfume, Vanilla Absolute, Blackcurrant Absolute, Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Tagetes Oil, Water (Aqua), Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, *Benzyl Alcohol, *Citral, *Limonene, Colour 14700, Colour 17200
This tentacled passion fruit scented jelly is not only fruity, bubbly and great fun to wash with but will dance with you too! Tango together in the tub and watch it wiggle, slide and jive as you wash.
How to use:
Wibble and wobble the whole jelly over your body and hair for a skin-softening wash. Bonus tip: Slide the jelly across the tub to watch the octopus dance.
My Demo Video
i have two videos below showing what the Lush shower slimes are like close up.
Made for the first time this year (as a limited edition) for the Lush Christmas 2021 holiday.
There is an Ectoplasm shower gel that Lush made for Halloween a couple of years ago. I thought this was a wonderful new citrus scent for Lush. I asked for a perfume of this. And i must have not been the only one because soon thereafter Lush made an Ectoplasm liquid spray perfume and a body spray. Lush also made a bath bomb called Ectoplasm first. And a few years ago Lush made a solid puzzle bath oil called Tree-D (a play on the words 3D).
So now Lush is making an Ectoplasm Slime.
The scent is very citrussy. It’s a different scent than all the many other Lush citrus scents. I absolutely adore it. This has an addictive, tart effervescent scent of grapefruit and tangerine. It smells like fizzy soda. Moreso than Bubble or Celebrate imo. Ectoplasm isnt as sweet as those.
My husband has a little UV light (or black light) and he pointed it towards the container and WOW!
Ectoplasm slime is the fourth slime that Lush has made. I’m going to attach videos of the other slimes that i bought when Lush made them. All 3 slimes have been exclusive and one was sold as a limited edition for Halloween. Two of them came out at the same time; ‘Brr’ and ‘Bam’. One was minty and one had the same scent as Lush ‘Nevermind the Ballistics’.
Lush also made a black slime with the snow fairy scent, and a pink slime with the snow fairy scent.
So the Ectoplasm slime will be the same consistency of these other slimed in the videos, only it will be highlighter green/yellow and it is fluorescent under black light.
Heres my Demo video of Ectoplasm slime

This is a new exclusive bath bomb made for the August 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.
Lush New Exclusive bath bomb ‘The Lakes’.
Inspired by Taylor Swift.
This has a brand new scent. It’s an earthy, incensed, green scent made with osmanthus, oak moss, myrrh, and siberian fir needle.
It’s a slow, melty foamy bomb. It’s a mint green with flecks of pink in it and fine silver shimmer in it.
The scent stays on my skin long after i dry off and get dressed. It’s a subtlety earthy, sensual scent.
I like this bomb. It’s a different color for Lush and a different scent. It’s not a sweet scent but an earthy green one. Kind of like the classic lush green scents.
Here’s a link to my tub demo 😊
Its up on my Lush youtube channel. I attached it the bottom of my August 2021 Lush Kitchen subscription box blog page here https://lushalot.com/2021/07/11/lush-kitchen-august-2021-subscription-box/

Mimosa in the moonlight. I knew this smell right away, I used to walk around these trees at my fathers house that had the fuzzy lavender colored flowers on it and the smell was heavenly. A sweet yet powdery flower the mimosa. It is lavender in color and fuzzy like a soft pink brush. Sometimes it smells like a light melon scent too. Mimosa is what the “Sakura” ballistic is scented with. This has no color in the water.
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Sea Salt, Lemon Oil, Mimosa Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Gardenia Extract, FD&C Red No. 4, FD&C Blue No. 1
Lush 2006 description: Sakura is the japanese name for cherry blossom which aptly describes this pretty pale pink ballistic. Sakura is dappled with bursts of pale green that rise up to a bright pink and green layer of exfoliating sea salt at the top of the bomb
This has been one of Lush’s regular year round bath bombs since 2004 or so. And its still sold in stores today.
Its a fast dissolving fizzing type of bath bomb, not a slow, melty, foam typeof bomb. It has a lovely floral scent with blue and pink salt crystals on the top.
Yummy. A highly underrated soap as far as conversations amongst Lushies. For a long time this was my favorite soap. I first bought some in my second Lush order a long time ago. And i like it just as much today 20 years later. It smells very different. Feminine and floral but lightly so, fruity from the figs and full of fig seeds. This could be good if your exfoliating or bad if you don’t like bits. Nice creamy lather. That scent though, its the perfect combination of sweet and floral.
LT 2004 Description: Figs and Leaves is a lovely, coffee brown, creamy soap scented with ylang ylang and orange blossom perfumes. Ylang ylang is one of the oils that helps to balance the skin’s oil production; orange blossom absolute is excellent for keeping the skin in good condition. The little specks in Figs and Leaves are the fig seeds from the decoction of nutritious, fresh, organic figs that form the base of this soap. Rub this all over your body to gently exfoliate your skin, make it feel smooth and smell luxuriously of figs and flowers (not leaves)…..
Ingredients: Fig Decoction, Aloe Vera, Perfume, Ylang Ylang Oil, Orange Blossom Absolute,
Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Chloride, EDTA, Tetrasodium Editronate, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Linalool. * Occurs naturally in essential oils
I would give this soap a 5 out of 5 rating.
Its more moisturizing on my skin than other Lush soaps.
The scent is near perfect.
Its a classic Lush soap having been in their stores for over 20 years, because its popular.
It isnt the prettiest soap but trust me, if you havent tried it youre missing out. 😊👍🏼
The one scent family product is Lush ‘Dorothy’ bubble bar. Same scent.
