See my 6 minute sink demo of both the potted and naked versions video below.
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.
This is a solid/naked packageless body lotion exclusive to the LushLabs at lush.co.uk
While i did not like the previous naked body lotion ‘Once Upon a Time’ that lush made for Christmas 2017, this one, Little Pot of Energy, is different.
Its not oily nor greasy. Its a drier consistency than ive seen before. Almost how a dry deo goes on. Theres no tacky feeling when you apply it.
I like the smell. Its made with oranges and grapefruit, as i explain in my demo and review video below.
the bottom line is that this works for me. it moisturizes my skin without feeling oily, and it snells great.
i would actually use this everyday, and i might even buy another one.
Lush: Move mountains. Fight lethargy. Deliver a dose of vitalising citrus straight to the skin. It’s a bolt of lightening to the brain: a sweep of orange puree that’s electric sharp to sniff but smooth as butter on your body thanks to a base of Fair Trade Colombian cocoa butter. Supercharge your skin with a sweep of brightening orange and grapefruit pulp and reboot your mind with a perfume flavour so fresh you can nearly taste it. Motivation’s never been this mouthwatering.
List of ingredients
Fair Trade Colombian Cocoa Butter
Pink Grapefruit Puree
Fair Trade Shea Butter
Made with Apple infusion. See my demo & review below of my black pot version and the ‘naked’ version of this lotion. This isn’t quite exactly like so white in my noses opinion. But it’s similar. Once upon s time has more of a real apple scent.

Vegan-See my demo video of this hand cream below
This hand Cream is made with the lovely lavender and tonka bean ‘Twilight’ scent.
It is made with various nut butters: pumpkin, peanut, cashew, and almond butters. As well as lavender oil and tonka.
I compared this to the Lush Twlight body lotion. This hand cream is definitely thicker. It’s not as creamy as the body lotion, it’s thick, almost like a paste.
It smells just like the Twilight fragrance that we all know and love.
I found it both odd and cool that this was in silver squeeze tube. Different for Lush, but I like it.
I’m a good fcandidatefor a hand cream as for many years now I’ve had such dry, weather beaten, wrinkly hands.
Here’s my demo and review of it. I compare it to the Sleepy body lotion

See my demo video below
Lush new limited edition ‘Sleepy’ body lotion was made with the popular Lush “Twilight” scent. Having tonka bean and lavender, it’s a creamy, slightly sweet, herbal scent.
Lush: ‘You’ll sleep in heavenly peace after dipping into this dreamy lotion, made with a gentle oatmeal infusion, calming lavender flower and comfortingly sweet tonka absolute. A rich, malty and floral perfume conjures up visions of sugar plums and hot drinks topped with whipped cream while the heavenly ministrations of creamy Fair Trade organic cocoa butter and delicate lavender water cool and enrich the skin. Blanket your body in this lovely lotion before stepping into soft pyjamas for snuggly winter nights beside the fire.’
Here’s my demo and review of this lotion up close

Lush Times: We’ve developed a cream to keep your bits firm and supple. This blend of cold-pressed, organic oils can keep your knockers, decolletage, stomach and bottom in top nick.

This smells like honey and orange flower to me more than anything. It’s lovely. It’s not greasy or anything. And it really does seem to firm things up.

Lush.a.Lot’s Review: Skin Sin is similar to Lush’s discontinued “Cherie Ripe” massage bar. It’s a lighter scent then Cherie Ripe message bar or Snap the Whip or even Potion. When I first put it on, it was cherry, in a majorly yummy way. Now that it’s rubbed in and stuff it smells like light soft cherry and just a touch of that fruity currant smell. I guess I’m just lucky with these latest round of new products because this has absolutely no acrid currant-cat pee smell on me whatsoever as some say it does. Not in the least. Skin Sin is beautiful. It’s just a lushious black currant creamy raspberry scent. This is a nice lighter scented summer body lotion that is quickly absorbed like “Potion”, and it’s also like “Potion” in consistency. I could actually wear this to work and not be worried about it being to “Lushy” or too “Strong”.
Lush Description: Skin Sin started life as a truly beautiful cream which made our skin feel good all over. We used almond oil to sink deep down into the skin and give longer lasting benefits (not just a nice smell and a feeling which lasts half and hour like some chemical-raddled creams do). We added nourishing cocoa butter and humectant vegetable glycerine, soothing tagettes and chamomile oils. The trouble was with this gloriously effective cream, that its effective, dependable mix of essential oils made it smell all a bit too worthy. We wanted it to behave perfectly but to smell wicked. So Mark added a twist of rich, fruity cherry, which you smell more strongly as the earnest oils settle down and do their good works. It’s a bit like having Angelina Jolie join your school’s fundraising committee.
