Igloo (Australian Igloo) scrub

3 out of 5 rating

Lush ‘Australian Igloo’ sugar scrub.

Up for the vote for the July 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

The Kitchen subscription box site calls it ‘Igloo’. No. This is incorrect. It’s not Igloo. ‘Igloo’ is the name of a lush soap, and it’s also the name of a solid bath oil.

Originally made as a limited edition in store and online for Christmas 2011.

This was never remade in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen.
Up for the vote for the July 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

It’s a pine scent. I wish it was a minty scent.

This doesn’t age well. It’s a nice soft consistency with large exfoliating pieces of sugar. It gets dry after a week or so and becomes hard and too scratchy to use on your skin.

Ponche shower gel

See my demo video of it below

4 out of 5 (new version)

Made as a limited edition for Christmas 2010-2011 only. And remade for the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen in 2014. It’s up for the vote again for the Lush Kitchen July 2021 Subscription Box

This has a nice, Christmas punch kind of scent. Having cinnamon, orange juice, Okum, buchu oil, davana oil, and petigrain oil. All very fruity notes. The original version had tequila in it (like the punch that it’s named after), but for some reason they took it out. When they did that it changed the smell. It lost its bright note, but it’s still a nice scent.

Lush made a perfume of this exclusively for one day only on the Uk website in 2014.

Lush ‘Icing on the Cake’ smoothie rhoulade had the ponche scent as well.

Ingredients: Water, Plum Infusion, Cinnamon Infusion, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, orange juice, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, Davana Oil, Buchu Oil, Petitgrain Oil, Tequila, Eugenol, Geranoil, *Linalool, *Limonene, Colour 15510, Methylparaben.

Lush Times: Ay! Ay! Ay! It’s Christmas! Do not fear the winter blue, dear amigos! Take a shot of this zesty tequila and lime gel in your shower for amorning fiesta, sure to wake even the sleepiest morning monsters. Ponche was invented after a member of Lush HQ traveled through Mexico and enjoyed their traditional fruity party punch. Bring on the tequila!

hHere’s a demo and review video i did of this shower gel.

North Pole

5 out of 5 rating

@lush North Pole soap
Made for one or two years as a limited edition Christmas soap in stores around 2009-2011 and on line.

It’s up for the vote in the July 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

5 out of 5 rating

The pink part is fragranced with a chocolately or cocoa, candyish fragrance, the white with a refreshing woody, minty fragrance.

I’ve added the second photo of the store version of it. In the stores it was a 6 inch wide x 2 feet pole. you could pick any piece you wanted; a huge round white slice or a huge pink slice or a piece with both pink and white. The store pieces were round, and the online or kitchen version rectangle.

It also came as a slice of the white part with a thinner pink part on top if you bought it online. The pink part smells a bit like a Peppermint Crisp bar, whilst the white part smells more like a mint flavoured rock candy. The original soap was a 6″ (or thereabouts) diameter pole shape that alternated between two Pink and two White sections.

Ingredients: Water, Propylene Glycol, Rapeseed Oil, Coconut Oil, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Stearate, Perfume, Peppermint Oil, Cocoa Absolute, Cedarwood Oil, Cypress Oil, Glycerine, Sodium Chloride, EDTA, tetrasodium Etidronate, Sodium Hydroxide, *Citronellol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Titanium Dioxide, Colour 17200

Lush Times: How else will Santa find his way to Lush without a North Pole soap to guide his way?! This is for everybody who love to wash with soap (and frankly, who doesn’t?) This soap is fabulous for people who like stimulating, refreshing showers – with just a hint of luxurious indulgent sweetness. One slice is never enough – so buy two! The pink is fragranced with a chocolately chewy fragrance, the white with a refreshing woody, minty fragrance.

Atom Heart Mother

see my 4 minute Tub Demo Vid below

made in the Lush ‘So White’ scent.

Atom Heart Mother

This is a new bath bomb with a retro product scent.

This was made for Mother’s Day 2021, along with three other bath bombs and two bubble bars.

Mother’s Day 2021 products

The bomb has a nice, strong Apple-y scent.

It smells just like all of these products. more like the Once Upon a Time lotion.

Atom Heart Mother has the same scent of so White body spray

“Sweet apple scent and spectacular bath art help to unfurl a summer’s day. Escape into your bathroom, fill the tub and drop in.
Smell familiar? This shares a scent with our Once Upon A Time range.

How to store:
Keep in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to feel relaxed and uplifted.”


I love the blue sky and white clouds look.

The apple smell filled my whole bathroom with its wonderful scent.

I think it’s awesome how the blue bomb starts spewing pink foam, and then before you know it those combine to make purple.

Here’s a tub demo video

Jasmine Cream

4 out of 5 rating

see my tub demo vid below

It’s said that this shares its scent with the Lush ‘Wintergarden’ bath bomb. But with the addition of Jasmine.

Jasmine Cream is a new limited edition bubble bar this year.

This Jasmine Cream bubble bar looks just like a jasmine flower.

How to use:
Gently scented with a soft creamy filling, crumble under the running tap to release mounds of bubbles atop creamy white water. Jasmine and ylang ylang fill the air while skin-softening bubbles fill the bath.

How to store:
Keep in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use this plastic-free bubble bath. A perfect Mother’s day gift

This Jasmine Cream bubble bar (and the Violet Cream bubble bar) have a creamy center.

This isn’t a reusable bubble bar, it’s a regular squishy kind of lush bubble bar.

The cream in this jasmine one is yellow.

It’s got some glitter in it but not a lot. And you can see it in the water but again it’s not a lot.

Flamingo Egg

Definitely a 5 out of 5 rating

See my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below

Flamingo Egg bath bomb

I love the color combination. Pink, purple and blue-green.

It looks like a geode because of the purple salt crystals on the top which look just like the crystals inside a geode rock.

They were so pretty i had to get two of them.

How to use:
A Perfect Planet needs plastic-free bathing. Run a bath and release this sweet, fruity scented egg for deep purple waters.

How to store:
Keep this skin softening salt and sparkling lustre bath bomb somewhere cool and dry before starting the hunt.

It’s a fast and loud fizzer. I like the noisy bombs because the sound is relaxing to me.

It smells yummy and fruity!

Ingredients

List of ingredients

You can see the color of the water change from green blue, to green and cobalt blue, to deep purple.

It only has a minimal amount of silver glitter in the water.

I would recommend this bath bomb.

Funfetti Cake

How to use:
Scoop out a little of this sweet cake treat onto your finger and buff your lips before licking off the excess.

This has a yummy bakery smell. Like cake. And it tastes good too. Like eating cake batter. 😊

Muddy Carrots

4 out of 5 rating

my sink demo video will be up in an hour or so.

A lot of people were wondering if this soap was in the same scent family as the Lush ‘The Carrot’ scent.

No it isn’t. This has no buchu oil which was a primary scent in the carrot. Also the soap has orange oil whereas the Carrot scent family does not.

To me this smells like an earthier smelling version of a chocolate dipped orange.

Using a soap with thad soul mud in it is always a nice experience. Spas use certain muds to tone skin, help remove impurities and it’s not drying on the skin. Lush has made a couple of other soaps in the past with thad soul mud.

As you’ll see in the video it lathers up nicely and rinses away clean.

This is different and that’s why i like it.

Same scent as the Lush Aurora Borealis scrub

The scent is different for Lush. It’s very fruity and minty. Very strong. If i had to describe it in one word i would say ‘refreshing’

Violet Cream

5 out of 5 rating See my Relaxing 4 minute Tub Demo below

Violet Cream bubble bars

This is a new bubble bar for Mother’s Day 2021. Mother’s Day comes earlier in Europe than it is here in the U.S.

I think that, because of the remarkable design of it, and the lovely sweet violet scent, this is one of the best bubble bars Lush has made in years.

It’s a regular squishy bubble bar, not a reusable.

It’s just like a cream violet, it’s even got some cream in the middle.

Even though there is a mesmerizing green-blue colored glitter on the outside, this bar doesn’t make glittery water, in case you were curious.

Thi bar is worthy of my buying six more of them.

I’ll keep them in my dark closet or my dark lingerie drawer so the color stays as long as possible and i’ll keep them in something air tight so they don’t harden up.

These are only available for a limited time basis, just for Mother’s Day 2021.

This bubble bar makes lots of creamy bubbles.

Lush How to use suggestions:
Crumble under running water and allow the uplifting violet and bergamot scented bubbles to build on top of skin-softening lilac waters.
Smell familiar? This bubble bar shares a scent with our Daddy-o shampoo and conditioner range.

Lush How to store suggestions:
Like any soft-centred treat, keep cool and dry until the moment of indulgence and feel good knowing the rose absolute is sourced from our regenerative rose projectin Pakistan.

Rose Gold

See my 5 minute Tub Demo Vid below

Rose Gold bath bomb

Run a bath, drop in and escape into a shimmering sunset dream with calming floral scents. A perfectly opulent Mother’s Day gift.

How to store:
Keep in a cool, dry place ready for a softening soak.

This is apparently made in the Lush ‘Wintergarden’ bath bomb scent, which is very floral.

The Lush description has something about this being the colors of a sunset. I can see why.

The bomb is beautiful with its multi floral pattern and it’s beautiful color of rose pink with gold all sround it.

For some reason this didn’t smell exactly like Wintergarden. I adore the scent of Wintergarden and even bought the exclusive Wintergarden body spray-but this bomb, especially when in the water smells a bit different to me. I could swear it has an almost jasmine-like scent but it must just be my nose.

As it starts to dissolve it lets out a stream of gold and orange foam.

It certainly does have the colors of a sunset.

Ingredients

List of ingredients

The primary scent is ylang ylang, but it also has bergamot and orris root powder.

Even the glitter is pink and gold. 😍 You can see this dual colored glitter very well in the Tub Demo Vid below.

It ultimately blends together to make an orange colored water.

A beautiful bomb for Mother’s Day. I still like the scent of the Mother of Pearl more but the design and color of this Rose Gold is beautiful.

Mother of Pearl bath bomb

Pearl bath bomb


How to use:

Run a bath and release the delicately floral scent for luxurious milky, soothing waters topped with pearlescent lustre for a bath bomb and oil in one.

How to store:
When only the best will do this Mother’s Day. Keep in a cool, dry place until you’re ready for a moisturising soak.


Pearl bath bomb looks like a giant pearl. It’s white and has a pearlescent sheen on the top half of the bomb.

When i first took it out of my order box i feel absolutely in love with the scent. On my video i said it smells like vanilla icing.

Lush definitely needs to make a perfume of this. I felt so strongly about this that i contacted Mark the creator and owner of Lush about this.

Pearl doesn’t change the water color nor does it product bath art. But it doesn’t have to because it’s one of those bombs like ‘So White’ or ‘Snow Drop’ that are white and foamy and dance all over the tub. This Pearl does this back and forth rocking movement the whole time it’s in the tub. It’s quite charming as it shakes itself all around letting go of some beautiful white shimmer in the water.

The incredible scent stayed on my skin and when i put on my robe even my robe smelled like vanilla icing with roses. Gorgeous!

One word to describe this bomb is ‘ethereal’.

Singing Daffodil

4 out of 5 rating

see my 2 minute tub demo video below

This has the Floral scent of Lush Santa’s Grotto bath bomb.

I didn’t expect to like this. With the exception of it being a pretty flower. I liked that part very much.

I almost didn’t buy it though because i’m getting bored with the reusable type of Lush bubble bars that we’ve been seeing. I miss the regular squishy type of Lush bubble bars.

However when i smelled it i fell in love with the fragrance. It’s the same lovely floral scent of the Lush ‘Santa’s Grotto’ Christmas bath bomb from two years ago. And it’s a different scent. It’s not a scent that lush has used before in other things.

Whenever Lush creates a new floral i get excited.

This didn’t make as many bubbles as the other reusable bubble blowers that i’ve bought from Lush. I don’t know why. But i did enjoy bathing in it.

It doesn’t color the water, and there is no sparkle.

How to use:
Hold under running water for mounds of bubbles or blow through for an airborne bubble show. When you’ve whipped up enough bubbles, pop on the side to dry for next time.

How to store:
With three distinctly floral essential oils, keep out of direct light and somewhere cool until ready to bloom in bubbles.

Bath bomb

4 out of 4 rating see below for a 3 minute Tub Demo Video 😊

Snowman jelly scented (which is the same as the carrot bubble bar)

I’ll be uploading my video tomorrow Monday.

The second i put this bomb in the tub i could smell the familiar scent of ‘The Carrot’ soap, and the other members of this scent family. It’s a beautiful and unique scent.

Carrot oil, buchu oil , bergamot. The scent is fruity but not in a citrussy way nor a berries way.

It’s lightly ‘perfume-y’. And the scent stays on the skin a nice long time.

It’s a slow, foamy type of bath bomb with some awesome bath art.

Here’s a pic i took of the scent family.

The final water color is a pretty lilac color.

Confetti perfume

I made a video describing this scent. The video is below, just go to 7:32 in the video for Confetti.

Confetti                                €90/£70 for 100ml

Emma’s initial workings were based on Rose, Violet, Coffee and Pear as a combination. Rowena smelt the perfume and thought it smelt of Sugar Almonds (a pastel coloured candy Almond – Usually found as a gift on the table at British Weddings). In Italy they have the same tradition for celebratory events and the Sugar Almonds are known as Confetti – which was a perfect fit …so much so, that this will be Emma’s signature scent for her wedding in 2020. 

Ingredients: Violet leaf absolute, Rose oIl, sandalwood oil

QI: DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Alpha-Isomethyl ionone, Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Geraniol, Rose Oil (Rosa damascena), Violet Leaf Absolute (Viola odorata), Sandalwood Oil (Santalum austro-caledonicum vieill), *Benzyl Alcohol, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Benzyl Cinnamate, *Cinnamal, *Citral, *Citronellol, *Eugenol, *Farnesol, *Limonene, *Linalool

Olfactory description: The three stages of relationships are featured in this perfume. The innocent of violet leaf, like the beginnings of all relationships. The sensuality and deepness of love from the Roses and the comforting solidity of all marriages provided by the sandalwood oil. Sweet and floral.

See my 4 minute demo, review, description video below.

This is a massage bar. It’s a new product for Valentine’s this year. Made in the Ro’s Argan/Rose Jam scent. It’s different looking than the ‘Pearl’ massage bar that had the same scent that was discontinued a couple of years ago.

Get closer to the ones you love, including yourself, with a massage of ruby cocoa liquor, argan oil and rosewater.
£8 / €10 each

I’m going to order one from Lush Uk tomorrow, and when i receive my order i’m going to take pictures of it and make a demo video for you.

Blow Me a Kiss

This is a new bubble bar for Valentine’s this year.

5 out of 5 rating.

see my 1 minute Tub Demo below.

I was not expecting to like this so much. What i love about this bar most is the smell. It’s made with Davana oil. Whenever i smell a Lush product with davana oil it always smells like tropical fruit.

This bar smells like a cross between banana and cherry. The scent is really good!

This Blow Me a Kiss bar is a reusable type of bar.

You use it, and then when you have enough bubbles simply put it where it can dry, like a soap dish, and then you can use it for another bath on another day.

“AValentine’s bubble bar to create crimson waters, mounds of uplifting bergamot and fruity davana oil bubbles and lips that are just begging to blow a bubble or two…”

I couldn’t blow a bubble with it. But i didn’t keep trying either so your mileage may vary.

How to use:
Hold under running water for mounds of bubbles or blow through for an airborne bubble show. When you’ve whipped up enough bubbles, pop on the side to dry for next time.
