Rose soap Valentine’s 2022

Rose

This is a new 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’ll take pics of that when i do. i plan on buying one as soon as they come out, and will take more pics and make a vid of it at the sink for you.

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

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

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.

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.

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’

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

The Big Snow Fairy Roll

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.

Ghostie

5 out of 5 rating. See my Tub Demo Video 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.

You’ve Been Mangoed

Its a new ghost design.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Popping Candy, Titanium Dioxide, Lemongrass Oil, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Persian Lime Oil, Cream of Tartar, Water (Aqua), Talc, Cornstarch, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Dipropylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Propylene Glycol, Tin Oxide, *Citral, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42090:2, Colour 77491, Colour 42090, Colour 45410:2, Colour 45410, Colour 45410:1, Colour 15850:1, Colour 17200, Colour 77499

Heres what it looks like under UV light.

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

Screamo

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.

Happy Blooming

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.

Monster Octopus jelly

See my 4 minute Description and Demo video Below

5 out of 5 rating

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.

Ingredients

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

Lush Description:

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.

Lush photo

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

Ectoplasm slime

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!

I took a photo of the Ectoplasm products
Ectoplasm body spray

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
