Merry Christmas shower gel

5 out of 5 rating

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

Lord of Misrule body lotion

5 out of 5

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.

The Lakes

4 out of 5 rating

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 😊

Squeak

4 out of 5 rating

See my demo video below

Made with big chunks of sea salt and lots of yummy tropical fruits such as mango, papaya, pineapple, lemon, and kiwi. Smells even more fruity and delicious than Lush I Love Juicy shampoo.

It’s a thick consistency, sort of like the consistency of Big liquid shampoo. I attached a vid to show the texture.

This is made for fine, limp hair and oily i normal hair. It’s not for my dry, thick, wavy hair.

After using it I can totally see how this woukd make thin hair thicker. It works well for that.

A little goes a long way. I have long hair. You have to make sure you rinse your hair well to get the small salt chunks out of your hair. It smells so good.

This was a surprise in the Lush July 2021 subscription box.

Have you tried it? Do you like it? Or not so much?

I wonder if Lush will have it in stores for the general public or if it will stay an exclusive one time thing.

Here is my video

Avocado No-Wash

Lush ‘Avocado No-Wash body lotion

This has never been made for the public. Lush, Mark Constantine let us vote for which community favorites product we would like in a body lotion in 2018.
Its up for the vote for the Lush Kitchen September 2021 Subscription Box.

5 out of 5 rating for scent and 3 out of 5 rating for performance.

It was made in rhe wonderful ‘Avocado Co Wash’ solid shampoo scent.

The scent is a tart lime scent with a nice sweet note in it. It’s quite a big burst of a lime-y fragrance made with sweet, fruity bergamot oil, fragrant incense-y yet citrussy frankincense (olibanum), and the lemony litsea cubeba herb.
There is the addition of avocado, which is moisturizing and softening for skin and hair.

I like other products in this scent more than the body lotion. Its SO conditiining that it takes along time for it to dry on my skin so i can handle my camera or phone without getting them covered with lotion.

I loved the Melusine bath bomb, the shower gel and then the Minamisoma shower oil the most.

Karma shower jelly

Never made for the public, this has only originally been made in 2006 for uk forum members, and made in the Lush Kitchen a couple of times in 2014 and 2016. Its up for the vote for the September 2021 Lush subscription box.

5 out of 5 rating

If you like the Karma scent this jelly will make you happy.
Its strong with the classic orange oil, patchouli, lemon grass, and pine scent of Karma.

Its a red orange color with no sparkles.
I usually cut some up, put it in a small plastic kitchen seive and hold it under the falling water and it makes tons of karma scented bubbles in the tub.

I added a Karma scent famy (which is one of the biggest scent families) on the last photo, and there are four more newer products missing from the photo already!

White Noise

See my tub demo video below.

Lush has collaborated with ASOS to make an exclusive bath bomb.

This bath bomb was included as an exclusive in the June 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.

It’s a frenetic pattern of blue, green, gray and white.

The scent is highly citrussy. Its the same scent as the Lush ‘Kitsume’ bath bomb.

It’s not sweet at all. It kind of reminds me of the Avobath bomb with its lemongrass scent, but this White Noise bomb is even more citrussy than that.

This isn’t one of those slow dissolving, melty bath bombs with multi colored foamy bath art. This is one of those fast fizzing bath bombs.

It’s got lots of nice gray silver glitter that dissolves into the water.

The end color is a gray blue bath water with gray silver glitter.

I enjoyed it. It’s different in action, looks and scent. While it’s not my favorite scent it’s nice.

i’d rate this a 3 or 4 out of 5 rating.

Yog Nog body lotion

3 out of 5 rating

Created exclusively (along with five other lotions that we voted on) in 2015 for the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen. Never sold to the public. I remember buying 3 at that time.

Up for the vote for the July 2021 Lush subscription box.

Unfortunately, especially because i am around photography and video equipment a lot, it was way too greasy for my skin. I left greasy spots all over every table that i sat at for dinner, it left a greasy residue on everything i touched. Wonderful smell! But i just couldn’t use it, so i held a giveaway and gave away the other two unopened pots i had bought.
I like the Yog Nog body milk much more as it’s not so thick and oily as the lotion in the pot.

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.

Orange, Grapefruit, Vanilla, Lemon Myrtle, Tonka.

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.

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.

Outback Mate bubble bar

5 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute Tub Demo below

Outback Mate bubble bar

The Lush Kitchen subscription box for the month of November 2021.

Lush Kitchen subscription box

This has the great scent of the Lush Outback Mate soap that Lush sells in their stores and online.

Outback Mate soap

It’s made with Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Lemongrass.

I love how strong it is, fills up my whole bathroom with its lovely scent.

I love the blue water.

No Glitter. And this isn’t a reusable type of bubble bar, it’s a regular squishy type of Lush bubble bar.

Botanomancy bubble bar

5 out of 5 rating

See my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below 😊

The Lush 2021 “4:20” cbd bath bomb and Botanomancy bubble bar are the same scent.

Legendary belle Ninon de Lenclos was said to soak in a blend of beautifying herbs to maintain her youthful vigour. You can invoke a little herbal alchemy of your own by drawing a bath full of pimento berry, peppermint and rose petals to quell agitation and promote wellbeing. Take a truly sensorial dip in woodsmoky waters perfumed with patchouli, sandalwood and cannabidiol oils to escape stress.

I just used a quarter of the bar for my bath

How to use:
Crumble under the hot water tap to conjure up clouds of bubbles, and steep in peaceful evergreen waters. If you’d like to follow Madam de Lenclos’ precise example, she advised resting 15 minutes in the magic water and thinking virtuous thoughts.

This product contains cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD oil, for its non-intoxicating relaxing qualities. The raw material is made of 10% CBD mixed with 90% Hemp Oil. This in turn is used at a percentage that provides 25mg of CBD per 200g item. You can find out more here.

Botanomancy is made from the scent of ‘Suoertramp’ bubble bath/shower gel…which is made from combining Tramp shower gel and Smaragadine bubble bath.

How to store: 
Keep somewhere cool and dry until ready to use.

Please note: This product can only be shipped within the UK

I love the scent of this. It’s like a dark green forest. It’s a comforting scent. Grounding.

cbd doesn’t work for everybody, but it does for me. Using this in the bath completely took my pain away.

To those Old Skool Lushies, this reminds me of Lush Tramp shower gel, but with no patchouli.

I love the dark green water.

Lush Grassroots perfume

5 out of 5 rating

What a surprise to get this in the mail. 😱

Only sold at the Lush Italy Perfume Library.

As i show in the video below, the wrap that this was wrapped in at the store is gorgeous. A beautiful burnished rose print and So silky.

This perfume was made in the Charity pot lotion scent, but at a very high concentration (it’s a strong perfume).

It’s a Proper Eau de Parfum, with loads of regenerative ingredients from different projects.

Geranium from Kenya, Rosewood Oil from Peru, Ylang Ylang oil from Ghana, and Vanilla from madagascar.

And the unique Scent Cube made with sustainable cork as a lid.

It’s got a slightly sweet chocolatey note, with a soft blanket of ylang ylang, and a lovely, slight woodiness.

The Sleeping Giant

see my 3 minute tub demo video below

up today. New, as a regular, year long item at uk.lush.com . It’s a giant bombshell created for sleep. It’s kind of like the Flower Milk bath bomb here. I bought two. When i get them i’ll take photos and record a video of it in the tub when i take a bath with one.

Mama Mia body spray

This is my favorite of the five exclusive body sprays that the Lush community voted for amongst the ten scents that Lush gave us to choose from. Naturally i voted for this one. The Mama Mia body scrub is one of my all time favorite smelling products. The first time i sniffed that vanilla and pink grapefruit scent i was in love.I love all five of the scents that won, but Mama Mia is definitely my favorite.

It’s such a Yummy scent.

When the body spray is first sprayed on it smells like something you would eat for dessert. It smells like strawberry cake with orange icing. The scent stays true while it’s drying.

In 15 minutes it’s fairly dried down, and while the scent has faded somewhat the yummy notes still smell the same as when i first sprayed it on.

I am so glad Lush made this into a body spray. I would rate this a 5 out of 5.

If you like vanilla or pink grapefruit you’ll probably love this.

here’s my video where i describe the scents of all five and read the ingredients etc

IRL bath bomb

It was an exclusive Uk bomb that Zoella and Jack Constantine made. It was only available on the UK retail website and in the two Lush UK superstores. So i bought six from the UK website at that time. 😊
by the way Lush Uk is making shower gels with whatever scent we want to vote for. I voted for one with the IRL scent. because not only are the colors gorgeous but that scent they created for this bomb is heavenly.

Beauty Sleep

5 out of 5 rating. See my video below where i apply it and review it.

Mark Constantine, owner of Lush Uk wanted to have a little fun so he decided to work with Helen Ambrosen on a new face and body mask.

They made it by adding a teaspoon of gorgeous moisturizer and then they added the ingredients to ‘Sleepy’, Lavender, Yang ylang and Tonka.

when they finalized the product he announced that they will let us have a crack at naming the product. So people submitted they’re names and a handful of people chose ‘Beauty Sleep’ and this is the name that won.

it’s a perfect name. the mask smells amazing! if you know what the gorgeous moisturizer smells like you can imagine that plus sleepy.

instructions recommend slathering it on your face and your arms, neck, chest, back, stomach and then let it stay on your skin for 10-20 minutes while you’re in the tub or in the shower. Then after that time just rinse it off.

it’s got ground adult beans for exfoliating and it’s LOADED with many moisturizing ingredients.

it’s a beautiful pinkish lavender color.

“Aluxurious clay face mask, which includes a spoonful of our most decadent moisturiser, Gorgeous, for a boost of hydration. The perfect step in your evening skincare routine, to help you #getyourbeautysleep.

“The combination of lavender and neroli is even more soothing than I anticipated. I noticed a significant improvement in my stress level within minutes. Skin feels soft and smooth afterwards. – bethanyjoyhall

“From its lavender and neroli scent that calms the mind…to its freshly ground Aduki beans, fresh coconut, honey, kaolin, and talc which calm and soothe the skin-this face mask is a 10/10 for me! It left my skin feeling calm, moisturized, and toned all at once.” – LaredoLushies

For a limited time, enjoy a deluxe sample of our Gorgeous moisturiser with every purchase of Beauty Sleep face mask*

As part of this purchase, all customers will receive an email with exclusive access to our special mindfulness meditation led by Mindfulness practitioner, Rose Eskafi, free of charge, to calm the mind and help you soon drift off to sleep.

*While stocks last. Sample size is 7g.

How to use
Run a warm bath, put on some relaxing music and apply this beautiful face mask to clean skin. Sit back and relax. Inhale the neroli and let the valerian and lemon verbena get to work. Once you’re feeling relaxed and ready for bed, rinse away with warm water.

Lo and Behold when those of us who bought the Lush Kitchen subscription box from Lush Uk opened up our June boxes we found a surprise: a container of Beauty Sleep face and body mask. Yay!

List of ingredients

As far as Lush masks go i really like this one. it made my skin feel cleansed and moisturized and it smelled gorgeous. Using it before bed was a good idea since the ingredients in ‘Sleepy’ (twilight) are conducive to sleep.

Abombinaball shower jelly

5 out of 5 rating.

See my demo and desceiption video below.

Made as a surprise for inclusion in the May 2020 Lush Kitchen subscription box.

Its made in the same scent as the limited edition bath bomb of the same name.

Its scent is made with peppermint, vanilla and orange oil. Its a yummy, sweet vanilla mint.

This can be used whole on the body as soap in the shower or as i show in my video one can cut it up and use it in a kitchen seieve as a bubble bath.

Heres a video of it

AbombinaBall shower jelly

5 out of 5 rating.

See my demo video of it below.

Lush made this rare, eexclusive shower jelly specifically for the May 2020 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box. This product has never been made before.

Lush has made a bath bomb called ‘Abombinaball’. The name is a play on the word abominable, as in The Abominable Snowman, but spelled A-Bomb-in-a-Ball.

It was such a special, limited edition bath bomb from 2009, and the first incarnation of the Lush Kitchen re-made this wonderful bomb for one day only. They remade the bath bomb again recently in January 2020 in the Lush Uk community favorites which is where i got the one for this photo.

The AbombinaBall shower jelly smells just as lovely and yummy as the popular limited edition bath bomb: like creamy, sweet vanilla ice cream with mint.

The shower jelly is nice and strongly scented.

Like the bath bomb the shower jelky has a blue green shimmery tone through it. Gorgeous!

There are different ways to use Lush shower jellies. Ive recorded demo videos showing how to cut slices off for use at the sink like soap. Ive ecen shown how they can be used as shampoo on your hair. It can also be used whole to rub on your body in the shower.

Additionally you can dice some of the jelly up and out it in a small kitchen seive, holding the seive in the falling water stream when filling the tub and a rich lovely bath foam will be created from the shower jelly.

I love everything about this exclusive shower jelly. The yummy scent, the way it feels, and the look of it. I would buy more than one if i could, so i would give this a 5 out of 5 rating.

This is my favorite product from the May 2020 Lush Kitchen subscription box.
