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.
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.

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.
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.
This has a nice somewhat sweet, spicy fennel scent. It’s dark gray close to black, and it has silver lustre and it adds silver sparkle to the grayish water.
heres a demo i made of this glittery thing in the tub
Here’s a demo video I made of Jilted Elf jelly being silly.
Lush Times: Jilted Elf takes an alcoholic stumble around your shower, leaving wafts of fruit cocktails as he goes.
Wash away the old and welcome in the new with our bright green, wobbly foaming shower jelly that’s named after a cocktail we saw for sale in New York. With an infusion of figs, honey and seaweed gel to soften your skin and make you silky to the touch. Then to make you smell intoxicating and irrisistable, we have a multi-layered sophisticated fruity Christmas cocktail fragrance of vodka and essential oils, including cinnamon leaf oil, grapefruit oil and ginger oil.
Our Jilted Elf can never be kept down. He looks towards a fine future that is full of promise, his little inner twinkle of gold shines out, no matter how tough going the festive season gets. Grab him and drag him into a shower near you for the most fun shower you’ve had in a long while.
Covered in gold, and looking like a clock that is melting.
Lush Times: Enjoy a cheeky massage before the clock strikes 12 and see where things take you! Jasmine fans will want to get their paws on this gorgeously slippery massage bar, scented with expensive, comforting and sensual oils, As well as the stunning Jasmine Revolution perfume, Helen chose skin-softening butters, as well as forbidden fruits like figs, carob and quince to create an indulgent, luxurious massage – perfect to enjoy with anyone you’d happily share a Christmas mistletoe kiss with too.
This is a beautiful bubble bar with it’s orangey-gold glitter. It has the scent of Lush’s “Karma” fragrance which is orangey, not sweet at all, earthy with patchouli, and a bit of pine. A unisex scent. It leaves a pale orange colored water and TONS of bubbles. There is also glitter in the water. The glitter doesn’t stick on you like the Karma melt but mostly gets washed down the drain if you use a squirt of shower gel in the water. Bling Crosby is so pretty and festive.
LT 2006 Description: An easy glistening, soothing orange spice Bubble Bar for a smoother Christmas. Crumble under running bath water for mounds of fragrant bubbles
Lush Times Xmas 2008: Lush’s take on Christmas cake. If you’re planning to throw a huge Christmas party and you want to give everybody a present to take away with them, how about buying a massive great Christmas Cake Soap and slicing it up into hundreds of pieces to give all your guests? We also sell it in bar-of-soap slices, which we cut off the big Cake for you. It smells like cake and more – more like a slice of Christmas cake on a plate next to an open fire of fragrant, smouldering wood logs to keep the chill away. Soothing, smoky vertivert essential oil and organic aloe vera, help your Christmas Cake Slice to keep your skin calm over Yuletide, even if everything else goes crazy.
This is a half red/half green colored Christmas bubble bar with orange oil and cinnamon leaf oil. If you use just the red part the water turns pink and if you use the green part the water turns green. There’s a tiny candy holly leaf in the middle (it might be edible, but it tastes like soap because it’s embedded in the bar. Using the whole thing makes the water a kind of a dark red/brown color.
Lush Times 2004 Description: Wake yourself up with a bang! Wake yourself up on a cold and frosty morning (or a dull, dark, damp one) with a cracking Christmas bubble bath. It’s out classic cinnamon and orange, crowing rooster alarm clock scent to ping your eyelids open and jump start your brain. Crumble the seasonally red and green bar under your running bath water as you sip your spiced coffee. Get in, enjoy the reviving warmth and don’t forget to read the corny motto which we’ve stuck inside it, just like a real cracker.
This reminds me of the smell of spice cake. And it tastes good. It was very popular.
I would buy more than one of these.
Lush Times Xmas 2008: Orange and lemons, currants and sultanas, vanilla, sherry and treacle. This must be the tastiest lip balm on the planet. At Lush we have quite a lot of vegans working for us, that’s the people who won’t eat or use any animal products at all. As you can imagine it can be quite tricky for vegans to find lovely products but at Lush and B it’s quite easy. That’s except in the lip balm department, where all our 2008 products were vegetarian but not vegan. Our vegans also have a great fondness for cake; Sean’s non-cheesecake is the current favourite. So when Helen and Noriko blended out new vegan lip balm base, Helen decided to make it cake flavoured. We would use that old saying about killing two birds with one stone, but that really upsets the Lush vegans so we won’t.
Ingredients: 2835 Let them eat cake £4.50 Organic Olive Oil (Olea europaea), Currant, Sultana and Raisin Infusion, Japan Wax, Fresh Lemon and Fresh Orange Peel Infusion, Shea butter, Plum Kernel Oil, Flavour, Sherry, Vanilla, Lemon Oil, Lime Oil, Cognac Oil Glycerine, Organic Black Treacle
This does smell like Gingerbread. When they’re made fresh the scent is yummy. I had an old one to compare a new one to.
It’s so cute. It gets a lot of points for cute. 🙂 It makes brownish water. It makes lots of bubbles. I love them and always buy one whenever lush makes them available, yet I don’t love them in a ‘stock up’ way. That’s why the 4 out of 5 rating.
Lush Times: Christmas is a confectioner’s dream, especially with our Gingerbread House Bubble Bar. It is sweetly spiced like fresh gingerbread and there’s no wicked witch in sight, nor any sign of Hansel or Gretel eating her out of house and home.
Lush Times: Our newest scrubber was inspired by the Tchaikovsky ballet. When Helen was inventing, she thought that plum kernel oil would work a treat because it moisturises the skin and makes it feel silky smooth and adds an almondy scent to the product.
Lush Times: Glögg is a Lush interpretation of a Swedish spin on festive mulled wine. It will make your body feel warmer as you inhale the spicy aroma. A bottle of Glogg is a fairly boozy cocktail to liven up Christmas baths and showers. We poured lashings of red wine and brandy in there to stimulate your body while you lather, with cinnamon and clove infusion for spice and fresh fruit juices to get you squeaky clean.
Review: I got a fresh one once and it changed my mind about the Pud. True, it leaves a brown ring to clean up. True, it makes the water poo brown. Turn off the lights, light a candle and use this. It smells like spice cake. And it lasts. I bathed my twins in this on Christmas and they smelled like two little spice cake sweeties all weekend. This is grand to combine with Christmas Cracker bubble bar, Orange and Spice soap or with a Jack Froth or Marziban bubble bar. It’s like bathing in Christmas desert.
Lush Times description: Looks like a pudding, smells like a pudding, fizzes like a spicy Bath Ballistic. Fill your bath with warm water and drop in the Ballistic for a fizzing, fragrant, relaxing soak.
Notes: The newer ones are much lighter brown. almost tan colored, and they smell more like Snowcake soap then spicy Christmas pudding. I like the original ones way better because it was spicy.
Review: This smells just like the past Christmas soap called “Reddy for Christmas” It’s smells like a combination of red hots (from the cinnamon) and Angel’s Delight(because of something fruity). It’s scent lasts a medium amount of time and it’s also a medium strong soap scent. Love it.
Lush Times 2004 Description: This soap has the colour & scent of mulled wine. Clove bud and cinnamon leaf oils warm and ease stiff muscles on cold mornings; orange oil perks you up and tones your skin. Each Big (40kg!)Soap is decorated with a perfect, Japanese style white mountain to remind you to take this with you if you’re going skiing.
This shower gel has the wonderful scent of Snowcake soap and Marzibain bubble bar. Firstly I was never knocked out about Snowcake soap. It was just “Meh” to me for years. But this shower gel has changed my mind completely about the Snowcake scent. When I opened the bottle I couldn’t believe how fresh it smelled! Everythying good that I could smell about Snowcake was in this bottle of shower gel. It is nice and strong and fresh smelling. It’s not sweet. It smells lightly of rose and almond. A clean, comforting scent. It’s got that marzipan scent, with a bit of rose and a bit of almond. I’m a Snowcake believer. I give this 5 stars.
Scent Family: Snowcake Perfume; Snowcake Soap; Snow On Snow Dusting Powder; Smitten Hand Cream; Oops! Almond Kisses Facial Moisturiser; Marzibain Bubble Bar Slice; Big Ed Yuletide Soap and so many more.
Description: Catch a falling star and put it in your… bath. We have been working for a long time to make this Christmas bath melt – a shimmering bright star for an extra special bath filled with light and lustre. The shea butter fondant centre inside this bath melt is rich and moisturising, creating a soft and creamy bath. When the star melts, its silvery lustre spreads into the water creating a magical trail of starlight. Refreshing ginger and zesty lime oil inspire positivity and will also give you an extra boost. Close your eyes, make a wish, crush this melt under running water and watch as your bath turns into a turquoise, silvery pool of star light.
3.5 out of 5 rating. The new Christmas 2016 limited edition ”Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar shaped like a shoe like Dorothy’s shoes in the movie ‘Wizard of Oz’.
See my demo of this new bubble bar below.
Shipping Weight: 100 g(s)
Ingredients: Rose Absolute, Carnation Absolute, Tangerine Oil, Perfume, Colour 14700, Red Glitter (Polyethylene terephthalate).
Lush Description: Sparkling, ruby red bubble bath with a bewitching fragrance of rose and carnation. Crumble under running bath water for mounds of fragrant bubbles.
Here’s one from 2005
Review: This has Rose, Tangerine, Carnation and Geranium. Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar slice was made to be the same scent as Lush’s former “Potion” body lotion. It’s a lovely, gentle, fruity, spicy carnation floral. The glitter on this bubble bar is ruby red.
Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar make the water a beautiful red color. It makes loads and loads of bubble, especially the one i had because it’s so fresh and squishy. My only complaint would be that the scent isn’t as strong on the skin as I’d like. The scent of Potion in the bath is so lovely though. I think Lush would be successful selling this one all year round.
Here’s a demo video i made showing this beautifully bubble bar in the bath tub.
Here’s a demo of the original (MUCH more glittery version)
Description: The colour red is about as Christmassy as it gets. We’ve made this lip tint just the shade that Mrs. Claus might use to woo her husband. This product is made with fair trade shea butter to soften and moisturise whilst cherries and dates give you sweet, kissable lips. With our sexy red, cola-flavoured lip tint, who needs mistletoe?
Here’s what the color looks like on me. It’s more of an orange red, not a blue red.
