It has the scent of ylang ylang flower, patchouli, lemongrass and Ho wood. It smells like an expensive mens cologne or something. I love the scent.
Also, the scent has somestaying power after you use it which i like.
I Would give this a high rating because its really cute, it works well without drying my skin, it smells great and the scent lasts.
Its scent is from another product that Lush made before they called themselves Lush, when they were a company called Cosmetics To Go in the 90’s. The product was called ‘Damp Squid’ and it was a bath bomb.
I still have my old pictures of my Damp Squid bath bomb.
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.
When you are feeling wobbly reach for one of these three shower jelly discs layered in one pot of joy. Pick from marzipan, toffee or cherry to your skin’s desire.
How to use: Wibble the jelly disc over your body and hair for a skin-softening wash. You can use it at room temperature, cool it in the fridge or even in the freezer for the ultimate invigorating shower.
The two that i bought didnt make it in my box, so i emailed Lush and showed them my order and packing slip. Thryre going to resend. Its taking awhile 😏
I like the cherry scented one most. Ilike the way each of them smell individually by themselves. When i smell them all in the same container its kind of overwhelming.
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.

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!
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.
This jelly is made with coconut, pineape and vetivert. It has the same scent as Coco Loco/Big Calm.
We like our eggs sweet, foamy and vegan. Brazilian orange oil and vetivert oil make a cracking combination and will have you dreaming of being in a candy store filling a paper bag with fried egg gummy candies. Let this sudsy version wobble over your body in the shower and feel the refreshing, toning and brightening effects of fresh pineapple infusion. If ever there was a shower jelly that smelled good enough to eat, it’s this one.
Don’t leave yourself scrambling for a good shower. Lather up with this sunshine-filled jelly. It’s no yolk, this cheery little egg is packed with a cracking mix of soothing coconut infusion, enzymic pineapple and softening carrageenan extract – a recipe for truly sumptuous skin. Top it all off with a blend of uplifting orange and vetivert for a clucking good shower.
Benefits: – With a soft, tropical scent, fresh coconut infusion soothes and moisturises skin leaving it soft and supple. – Fresh pineapple infusion is bright and enzymic, great for stimulating skin and giving it a revitalised glow. – Carrageenan is a seaweed extract that gives this product it’s unique jelly texture, and is super softening for your skin.
How to use: Keep it whole, and lather onto wet skin to create a rich foam that will clean and leave you feeling fresh and bright.
4 out of 5 rating for both jellies. See my demo, description and reviews video below.
Since there are 70 products i asked my youtube subscribers and my instagram tv subscribers to choose which products to review next. The majority of folks chose tge jellies first. So im reviewing both silver bells and drummers drumming jellies here.
Silver bells has a new scent. It smells like fresh air, or snow, or fresh sheets. The scent is made with lime oil, orange oil and frankincense (olibanum). Its also got black sesame seed milk in it, which is different and interesting.
Silver Bells has a silver metallic sheen to it, wheras Drummers Drumming is yellow, not gold.
I find this to be more of a milky consistency as you can see in the video. Even so, it makes the same kind of lather that the Drummers Drumming and the Santa’s Belly do.
The scent of Drummers Drumming smells of peach juice. Very few (a handful only) Lush products over the last 20 years have peach juice in it.
I like it, its not too sweet but it does have a natural sweetness to it.
Its east to lather up with both of these jellies. And its easy to rinse off the jellies too. They rinse off clean and leave no kind of sticky residue or anything.
I show in the video how a teeny sliver of either jelly makes Tons of bubbles in the tub too!
Lush made Calacas jelly a few years ago. Originally we could get them in three different colors, but the calacas jellies that have been made in more recent years are green.
It has the same lime, neroli and Frankincense scent as the other Calacas scented products. Anything that has frankincense is right up me alley. Always. This scent is both citrusy (lime in particular) and has an almost perfume-y quality about it. Not gross perfumey, in fact this smells like those lime pastilles candy. Calacas is ravingly popular with the majority of lushies around the world. The Lush Kitchen is making and selling them in the small size in their new “Lush Kitchen’, for one day only. The price including shipping is approximately $20.00-$22.00. You can buy with Paypal, and it automatically converts your dollars into the necessary Brithish Pounds amount
Here’s an 8 second video i made of Calacas (with sound)
Lush Times: Halloween, skeletons and the Day of the Dead: it all fits together perfectly like a fun and slightly macabre jigsaw! Calacas is a devilishly wobbly special for October made to bring back the dead from their long sleep…
Lush has introduced five or six jellies at their new Superstore at the Liverpool Spa.
All having Dance names. Conga is the pink one andis made with Raspberry juice!
It also has vanilla, davana oil, and bergamot.
Initially i thought this might be a scent twin of raspberry milkshake soap however ive asked and it isn’t. To me this jelly smells more like raspberries and cream instead of just straight raspberry. It seems more yummy.
It seems like its more conditioning than other lush jellies because of the moisturizing davana oil and skin softening carageenan seaweed.
I recorded a 4 minute video showing you how it looks out of the container. I also show how to wash with it at the sink.
“Come on shake your jelly baby, use this Conga! You can’t resist this sweet-scented lather any longer. Feel as almond milk makes your skin softer, don’t you fight it ‘til you’ve tried it! Lather up with this sweet treat.
No need to form a line to experience the fabulously foamy washes of this wibbly treat. Brightening raspberry juice and vanilla absolute add a sweet note, while almond milk ensures skin feels hydrated.”
This is a new shower jelly, one of five whivh were i troduced at the new Lush Mega store at Lush Liverpool Spa.
This is another wonderful coconut scented Lush shower jelly, but different than the pineapple and coconut ‘Big Calm’ jelly. This Bongo jelly seems even creamier to me when i compare them side by side.
Bongo has a completely different scent than Big Calm. Bongo has mango in it as one of its main ingredients. I can smells the mango. I smell more coconut than mango though. And theres is coconut milk in here.
This Bongo jelly smells even more like coconut! It also seems to be more moisturizing.
You can see the different layers of color in my video below.
“For tropical fun and foam, you just can’t beat Bongo shower jelly! Packed with fresh, cleansing mango juice, and gently moisturising coconut milk, it’s the perfect cocktail of upbeat ingredients. There’s no need to drum it into you, once you’ve tried this sunny, skin softening shower jelly you’ll know there’s no bon-going back. ”
Please know-my husband and my daughter seperately did NOT like this jelly 🙂
As i said, and showed, in my haul video the consistency of this is perfect. Its firm and solid, not broken nor mushy. And Its gold! Straight away i can smell the strong scent of pears! It’s a stronger pear scent than in the soap even!
I can smell each of the ingredients; pear puree, cardamom, orange and just a smidge of sandalwood. Mostly i smell pear. My husband and daughter interpret this real pear smell to be similar to a paint smell. No matter how hard i try all i smell is pear. This wild swing in scent descriptions is similar to the mystery of the Great pyramids. Most of the time i can get why some things smell different to people. All I smell a vat full of juicy, sweet pears.
The color is golden all the way through. It leaves NO gold color whatsoever anywhere on your skin.
I literally like this jelly scent more than the golden pear soap, bomb, or body spray. I didn’t expect to like this so much to be honest.
As far as use i would use the bath bomb before i would reach for the jelly. But that said- im loving using this jelly.
Just a small note: golden pear jelly is not as creamy/conditioning as the Yummy mummy jelly.
Lush Uk have created 9 Community Favorites shower jellies.
Community favorites means; Lush asked us what our favorite product/scents are. Then they took the top nine answers with the most votes, and they made those nine into shower jellies!
Five of these jellies have not been made before. Three of these; Twilight, Sweetie Pie, Calacas have been made previously.
Yummy mummy is one of the scents that won and that Lush made a jelly of. I for one am SO glad because its one that i wouldve voted for. I have seven bottles of Yummy Mummy shower gel. And i once bought twenty Roller bath bombs. So i REALLY love this fruity, carmely scent.
Yummy mummy is made with strawberry puree, orange oil, tonka bean.
It smells like a strawberry shake.
This is what i originally imagined American Cream to smell like. Lol.
It took an enormous amount of control to buy only one pot of Yummy Mummy shower jelly.
Shower jellies can be used as soap, either whole, sliced, chopped up or frozen.
They can also be used as shampoo. And they can be used to get nice bath foam in the tub by holding it in your hand underneath the waterspout.
I used it whole, which i never do, and it worked really well. I was able to hold onto it without it dropping but your mileage may vary.
Lush limited edition shower jelly made with their ‘Think Pink’ bath bomb fragrance, which includes Golden Syrup, Lavender Oil, Tonka Absolute, Vanilla Absolute, Neroli Oil, Organic Coconut Milk, and Brown Sugar.
Here’s a demo video and more in depth review that I recorded of this jelly
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.

Review: Joy of Jelly is a beautiful purple and lavender jelly. It smells more perfumey than I thought it would. The scent was made to hace the nice floral “Sex Bomb” ballistic scent. It makes a lavender colored lather on the body. The scent stays too which is good. It’s so-cool-looking with the purple swirls, so that gives it a whole point by itself.
Description: Save water and share your shower. Rub our sexy jasmine jelly all over a dirty body. Freeze it, chill it, or use it at bathroom temperature. Crush or stroke it all over your body and hair, lather and rinse out.
