This is a re-usable bubble bar for Valentine’s 2019.
Lush made this with their popular Yog Nog scent.
As i explain in the video, yog nog smells like a combination of eggnog and burnt sugar, like creme brulee topping.
While this reusable style doesnt have the yummy, squishy decadence that the yog Nog yule log bubble bar has, it does have that same amount of yummy scent.
I was impressed with how strongly this was scented even while i had it unddr the waterstream.
It made a TON of bubbles in my bath..and it didnt even look like it had been used at all!
So its QUITE econimcal to use.
They have a blue and yellow striped six bar and a pink and yellow striped bar.
The pink one made a lovely baby pink color to the water.

See my 8 minute video below. I worked very hard in this video to describe exactly what the scent smells like so you can make your best purchasing choices. 🙂
Here is a photo i took of the Lush products made in this scent.
the liquid version is on the thin side.
oddly i enjoyed washing with the naked version a bit more.
American Cream is a vanilla based scent which also has clary sage, and lavender as its scent components. The hair conditioner added strawberry. The other American Cream products have strawberry in them…but….American Cream products do not smell like strawberry. It’s made with strawberry, it’s not strawberry scented. And in the perfumery industry there IS a difference between those two sentences. :-
I like to make that clear, so that people won’t spend their hard earned money on something that they think will be strawberry scented, only to be disappointed when it’s not.
My review and demo video 🙂
3.5 out of 5 rating. See my demo and review video below.
This has its own new scent which is made with almond essential oil, ylang ylang flower oil, orange oil, clove bud oil, and mashed banana. Along with shea butter and other skin moisturizing goodies to add the proper amount of slip for a massage.
I am living for the various fruit shaped products that Lush have been making and selling exclusively since Sept 2018
The Big Banana has a nice smell. It doesnt smell like banana runts candy. Its a light, more natural banana scent.
The consistency is oily.
Its not like sympathy for the skin in scent which is more earthy imo.
here is my video i recorded for you which helps explain the scent and shows the consistency.

love island is a sand based body scrub. Its a small one. It’s good that its smaller though because this style of scrub does tend to dry out faster. So one should use it right away or else cover it in an empty black lush pot.
Its a coarser grade scrub than many of lush different scrubs. But it makes sense that this one is made out of sand, since itssupposed to be reminiscent of an island after all.
Lush made this scrub with their Love fragrance which is a lemon, rose, jasmine, apple and cinnamon scent. I describe the ingredients on my video.
Here’s my 2 minute demo video i recorded for you.

WoW. This is a perfect rendition of a peach. The way the bath bomb is designed and the shading of color that is placed on it. The gorgeous peach scent.
This is a bath bomb i couldnt resist. I know i cant be alone with my obsession of special shaped bath bombs.
And lately, in the last three months, Lush has been introducing many new, exclusive bath bombs which are fruit shaped. This Peachy bath bonb has got to be the most gorgeous one in my opinion. I had to buy moee than one because otherwide it would be simply too cute to use. I would just want to stare at it everyday. 🙂
I love the golden peach colored water. Its a slow foamy fizzer in the water as you can see in my tub demo video.
It also has a gorgeous peach colored shimmer.
Its not particularly conditioning but its not drying to my skin either.
heres my 2 minute tub demo
check out the shimmer

I love that Lush made a body conditioner from one of its popular hair conditioner (American Cream) fragrance. And i like that they named it American Pie like the exclusive shower jelly from a couple of years back from lush.co.uk
The fragrance of it is akin to a vanilla milkshake. In fact the hair conditioner which started this all was made to mimic an American cocktail which tastes like a vanilla milkshake.
Lush has made more than a dozen different products in this same blend of vanilla, lavender, clary sage and strawberry juice.
Think of this as a hair conditioner for the body. In my demo video i show how to apply it and how to rinse it off.
This works well for me. I live in the desert southwest and my skin is VERY dry and this works really well at moisturizing without feeling greasy or oily.

I LOVE this new scent that Lush has created.
Theyve used it for Christmas in the Gingerbread Man Sparkle Jar, which im obsessed with.
Here’s my tub demo video, check out the glitter!
This is a reusable bubble bar, meaning you can use it more than once.
This was made with the yummy Gingerbread Sparkle jar scent. Its NOT the Lush floral ‘Ginger’ scent. This is a spicy yummy, Christmassy gingerbread scent.
If you have sore muscles or are cold this would be a good bath product to use because the ginger in this is nice and warming on the skin.
The bubble bar produces lots of bubbles.
You can use it for more than one bath but i used a whole one for my demo.
I love the gold shade water it makes, and i also love the gold sparkle it has too!
I stayed a little longer than i usually do in the bath just because of the therapuetic benefits of the ginger.
I would rate this a 4 out of 5. If it was a non-reusable, softer, smooshy type of lush bubble bar i would give it a 5 out of 5.
5 out of 5 rating. See my 2 minute Tub Demo Video below.
This is a WoW bath bomb for Valentines 2019. Its made in the Lush ‘Golden Pear’ fragrance. Its made with pear puree cardamom, and sandalwood.
All of Lush Golden Pear bath products have cocoa butter sandwhiched in the middle and this bar is no exception. This pear and cocoa butter mixture is Wonderful feeling. All silky and moisturizing.
It Smells like a juicy pear.
I love that Lush made this bath bra to look like the outfit that designer Jean Gaultier made for Madonna back in the day.
Usually bubble bath products that have more moisturizing things in them dont produce enough bubbles. But this bubble bar syrprisingly in an exception.
I tried to show in my tub demo just how many hubbles this produced. Very pleased!
The water has a subtle gold shimmer in it and its a light goldrn yellow color.
Im glad i bought more than one.
I would highly recommend this.

Aubergine is what the people in the Uk call Eggplant. it’s an eggplant shaped bath bomb…for Valentine’s 2019.
It’s made in the Lush signature ’29 High Street’ perfume fragrance.
Lush sells an exclusive perfume that is made to smell like a lush store. it has that Lush smell.
Pia, the lovely person who created the original scent (called HQ) explained to me how she created the scent, and what lush store product scents were used to create the fragrance. Karma, Honey i washed the kids, happy hippy, etc.
The result is a sweet, orange citrus with a floral background. it’s strong, heady and perfume-y. The fragrance has lots of expensive ingredients.
it does indeed smell just like a Lush shop.
This bath bomb produces a slow foaming fizz, with hues of purple, green, pink and blue. And a drop dead gorgeous hue of deep, jewel toned purple, with purple shimmer throughout.
Here is my 2 minute Tub Demo Video
I’m glad i got six.

Adam’s Apple solid mouthwash tablets are made with lime, lemon, spearmint, and cooling menthol.
I’ve received many questions on the taste and scent of this. i took the below photo to help demonstrate, and i discuss this in my video.
These mouthwash tabs taste/smell more like the product on the left, not the product on the right.
Lush description: Eve may have gotten the first bite, but Adam got to enjoy all of the flavour. Get first kiss ready with the gently refreshing flavour of these self-preserving mouthwash tabs.
Gently cleansing spearmint collides with lemon and lime for a fruity fling on the tongue, while aloe vera soothes the gums. If you prefer a zesty zing to a menthol blast, these solid tabs are just the ticket!
Here is my video
There are one or two other products that arent in this photo.
All the avocado co wash products made by Lush over the tears and currently are listed below in order of the originating product at the top of the list.
Avocado Co Wash hair conditioner
Avocado Co Wash shower gel. This is a thick shower gel.
Avocado Co Wash body lotion
Melusine exclusive, limited edition bath bomb
Avocado Co Wash exclusive uk body spray
Avocado Co Wash naked shower cream
Minamisoma shower oil
I’m also checking to make sure that one of the Lush 2018 ‘bauble melts’ isnt avocado Co Wash scented.
Its a very sour lime scent with a nice sweet note in it. It’s quite a big burst of a limey 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.
There is rosemary, nettle, vinegar and lavender flower in the conditioner.

£6.50 per 100g (transferred to american dollars this becomes $8.28). I wonder what Lush NA price will be per 100g? 😉
I always considered the Strawberry Twin Tub/Two Timing Tart scent to be a 4 out of 5…..vs. the 5 out of 5 rating that i give the other YYY/Strawberry Santa strawberry scent. Not a big difference.
Heres my video. I cut it open.
I ordered three of these this morning. This means that ill get it in the mail in about a week or two.
One of my Instagram followers @rosesangria asked if the scent of this was the yummy yummy yummy/strawberry santa lush product scent. I answered No, its from a retro product scent called ‘Strawberry Twin Tub‘ that was from a jelly that they made in the mid 2000’s. It has a companion bubble bar called “Two Timing Tart’ (and old review from me about it).
I verified this with Lush though just incase.
But even though its slighy different the difference is not noticeable to alot of folks.
This one has Jasmine, strawberry santa and yummy yummy yummy does not.
Also, this strawberry whip does not have frankincense whereas the other does.
Ive used the 2006 strawberry twin tub jelly, and its bubble bar companion ‘Two Timing Tart’ because these products was created for one of my friends ‘Twinmum’ on the Lush Uk customer forum.
This strawberry whip soap will have a wee bit more floral/perfume-y, less fruity scent than the other strawberry scent.
I don’t like lots of Lush products that have Jasmine, because they smell gross. This is NOT like those gross jasmine products.
Because it smells nice, the smell is stronger, its more moisturizing than regular lush soaps. Its got a middle layer of cocoa butter inside. Also, its bigger than i expected. Its not a tiny soap….i give it a 5 out of 5.
American Cream is a vanilla based scent which also has clary sage, and lavender as its scent components. The hair conditioner added strawberry. The other American Cream products have strawberry in them…but….American Cream products do not smell like strawberry. It’s made with strawberry, it’s not strawberry scented. And in the perfumery industry there IS a difference between those two sentences. :-)I like to make that clear, so that people won’t spend their hard earned money on something that they think will be strawberry scented, only to be disappointed when it’s not.
And rest assured Lush doesn’t claim the American cream scent smells like strawberry either. I know because I’ve talked the the owner of lush about this very thing.
Now, onto what it DOES smell like, to most people, including myself. It smells like creamy vanilla, with a light whiff of herbal clary sage and a pinch of herb-y lavender.
Below i’ll list what is shown and what isn’t shown in my photo above.

Apparently Lush planned a cheeky, sexually suggestive Valentine’s. 😉
I love the whimsy and double entendrees of the names, and shapes of these products. Pay particular attention to the ‘6’ bubble bar, and another ‘6’ bubble bar in a different color. And the peach, the “Eggplant”, the banana…
Here is my haul video with scent descriptions!

Believe in lavender legends
The rare Unicorn Horn bubble bar, created using old world magic by fairies from another realm, is the stuff of legends. As luck would have it, a new source has just been discovered in a faraway world. Believe in enchanted pink waters, infused with relaxing lavender and sparkling with lustre – just like the magical lakes on the Isle of Lushland
where unicorns bathe. (No unicorns were harmed in the making of this bubble bar.)
You’ll love this if you like:
– Relaxing lavender soaks and mythical proportions of bubbles. – Twilight bath bomb, Twilight body spray or Geode bath bomb. – Believing that magic is real (because it is).
– Lavender oil soothes your mind and sends you off into a magical realm of sleep.
– Neroli oil heightens your mood to full on fairytale happiness levels, and tones your skin. – Guar gum helps to build big bubbles that even last longer.
– This bubble bar is totally naked. A life without single-use plastic is no myth.
How to use: Crumble your replica unicorn horn under the tap (we’d never use the horn of a real unicorn, and we never test products on them either), click three times, and say “I do believe in unicorns.” The fairies will know if you don’t do it. Best used fresh for optimum magic.
How to store: Store in a cool, dry place until you’re ready for a spell binding bathtime.
Here’s a photo of the latest 2019 Unicorn Horn gift set with the Unicorn Horn bubble bar.
Here’s a tub demo video I recorded of the 2018 Unicorn Horn bubble bar
Unicorns are probably real. But, even if they’re not (don’t worry they definitely are) you won’t mind! Relaxing lavender oil meets mood-brightening neroli in this lustre-filled bar. Neroli oil increases serotonin levels in the brain which makes us feel contented and cheery, so you can ponder the existence of magical creatures while building a fairytale landscape of feel-good, fragrant bubbles.
