Yog Nog body lotion

3 out of 5 rating

Created exclusively (along with five other lotions that we voted on) in 2015 for the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen. Never sold to the public. I remember buying 3 at that time.

Up for the vote for the July 2021 Lush subscription box.

Unfortunately, especially because i am around photography and video equipment a lot, it was way too greasy for my skin. I left greasy spots all over every table that i sat at for dinner, it left a greasy residue on everything i touched. Wonderful smell! But i just couldn’t use it, so i held a giveaway and gave away the other two unopened pots i had bought.
I like the Yog Nog body milk much more as it’s not so thick and oily as the lotion in the pot.

Lush Labs January 2021 ‘Fresh Flowers’ subscription box?

I’m so confused at this point. It’s the Lush Kitchen that has the subscription boxes…so reading the email i got from the Lush Labs about their ‘monthly subscription box’ confused me.

Apparently the Lush Labs, that we all love and wished were coming back, has came back with a subscription box, But it’s Uk only. When i followed the link i got via email from the Lush Labs it said it was i’m only. probably because the products are things like fresh face masks.

Great.

So here’s the first box and it’s contents. 😊 It’s called the Fresh Flowers box. It has a couple of exclusive products in it. Two facial products.

1. Glen Cocoa face mask

2. Rolled Enfluerage

3. i pads the red, flat jelly looking things.

Botanomancy bubble bar

5 out of 5 rating

See my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below 😊

The Lush 2021 “4:20” cbd bath bomb and Botanomancy bubble bar are the same scent.

Legendary belle Ninon de Lenclos was said to soak in a blend of beautifying herbs to maintain her youthful vigour. You can invoke a little herbal alchemy of your own by drawing a bath full of pimento berry, peppermint and rose petals to quell agitation and promote wellbeing. Take a truly sensorial dip in woodsmoky waters perfumed with patchouli, sandalwood and cannabidiol oils to escape stress.

I just used a quarter of the bar for my bath

How to use:
Crumble under the hot water tap to conjure up clouds of bubbles, and steep in peaceful evergreen waters. If you’d like to follow Madam de Lenclos’ precise example, she advised resting 15 minutes in the magic water and thinking virtuous thoughts.

This product contains cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD oil, for its non-intoxicating relaxing qualities. The raw material is made of 10% CBD mixed with 90% Hemp Oil. This in turn is used at a percentage that provides 25mg of CBD per 200g item. You can find out more here.

Botanomancy is made from the scent of ‘Suoertramp’ bubble bath/shower gel…which is made from combining Tramp shower gel and Smaragadine bubble bath.

How to store: 
Keep somewhere cool and dry until ready to use.

Please note: This product can only be shipped within the UK

I love the scent of this. It’s like a dark green forest. It’s a comforting scent. Grounding.

cbd doesn’t work for everybody, but it does for me. Using this in the bath completely took my pain away.

To those Old Skool Lushies, this reminds me of Lush Tramp shower gel, but with no patchouli.

I love the dark green water.

Mama Mia body spray

This is my favorite of the five exclusive body sprays that the Lush community voted for amongst the ten scents that Lush gave us to choose from. Naturally i voted for this one. The Mama Mia body scrub is one of my all time favorite smelling products. The first time i sniffed that vanilla and pink grapefruit scent i was in love.I love all five of the scents that won, but Mama Mia is definitely my favorite.

It’s such a Yummy scent.

When the body spray is first sprayed on it smells like something you would eat for dessert. It smells like strawberry cake with orange icing. The scent stays true while it’s drying.

In 15 minutes it’s fairly dried down, and while the scent has faded somewhat the yummy notes still smell the same as when i first sprayed it on.

I am so glad Lush made this into a body spray. I would rate this a 5 out of 5.

If you like vanilla or pink grapefruit you’ll probably love this.

here’s my video where i describe the scents of all five and read the ingredients etc

Lush Winter Garden body spray

Winter garden body spray is one of five exclusive new December 2020 body sprays out of nine that we voted on via the Lush Labs site. Winter Garden scent is from the Christmas 2020 bath bomb of the same name. Lush hasn’t made this scent before in a bath bomb, body spray nor any product.

It’s always exciting when Lush creates a new product with a new scent that has a really great scent. Winter Garden bath bomb is this kind of product, so it’s no wonder we voted for this to be made into a body spray.

Winter Garden is a floral scent with the primary note of ylang ylang. It smells pretty. It’s a somewhat more complex floral scent to my nose than some other Lush florals. Winter florals are represented here, on top of the bath bomb are yellow, pink and blue flower petals. They look so small and delicate and perfect, like fairies placed them there.

I sprayed a good single spray on each fore arm. Right off the bat the scent of different kinds of flowers came alive on my skin. It made me go ‘oooh!’. You have to love the scent of flowers to like this body spray, so if you’re not a florals person you may want to smell this in store if you can first. there is no citrus, fruity notes in this fragrance. Nothing that smells sweet nor anything bakery like. it’s not earthy smelling at all, nor are there any green or woody notes that i can pick out. Just a beautiful layering of florals. It’s smells like a winter wedding bouquet.

While i do like citrus scent,and all scents actually, i am a florals person by nature. Some of my most favorite Lush perfumes and Lush bath products have floral scents. Lush doesn’t make them too much anymore like they used to in the early 2000’s.

That’s why this body spray fragrance is so special to me.

It’s dried down on my arm now and it’s still quiet strong. It still maintains the complexity of the fragrance. it gets a wee bit more powdery as it dries, which is nice actually, it’s not so alcohol-y as it was when wet.

the use by date is October 2024

I will say that the scent is very ylang ylang forward. So if you don’t like ylang ylang..

I always have my husband smell it too and tell me what it smells like to him. My husband said he couldn’t quite tell but that it was nice. i said ‘it’s floral’. I knew he had bad experiences with florals. He tells me of when he was young and his school teacher used to come to his desk wearing a floral perfume that was so obnoxious it made him sick. When i asked him tonight’s s this perfume like your teachers floral perfume?’ He said ‘not at all’. I take that as a good sign. 🙂

I would recommend this. And i would rate it a 4 out of 5 rating.

Here’s a video that i created where i review, describe, rate each of the five new body sprays including Winter Garden.

Sparkly Pumpkin

These new body sprays come to Lush USA December 17 2020.

Sparkly Pumpkin is one of five body sprays that won the voting process from ten fragrances that we voted on. I didn’t vote for this one 🙂 That said i do like the products that it’s named after. I just wanted to vote for others more.

The bubble bar that this fragrance is made from is more like fruit punch than the body spray. To me the Pumpkin Spice body spray seems fruity but with a slight floral/flowery, spicy note. It’s nice, just not as fruit punch like as the Sparkly pumpkin bubble bar and the Mr. Punch soap.

lush description of the bubble bar:


At the end of a long day, pop this Sparkly Pumpkin into the bath. As you crumble its golden shimmeryness under running water, you’ll feel instantly re-energized. An uplifting blend of juniperberry, grapefruit and lime oils will fill the room with an enticing, cocktail-like punch. And as you sink deep under the glittering gold water, you won’t be able to keep from smiling – probably because this little pumpkin is made to make every day bright.

It must be the juniper berry oil. Juniper Berry is famously known as the berry from which the alcoholic spirit Gin is obtained.

juniper bush with its berries

Unlike some perfumes or body sprays sparkly pumpkin’s fragrance stays pretty much the same when it dries down as when it’s first sprayed. It’s got a decent amount of throw also., even after having dried a bit.

I like this Sparkly pumpkin body spray. I would rate this a 4 out of 5. It smells more like a grown up version of fruit punch 😉

Here’s a video i made reviewing, demoing and describing each of the five exclusive body sprays, including sparkly pumpkin.

Space Girl body spray

Space Girl body spray and Space Girl bath bomb

Space Girl body spray was one of ten favorite Lush product fragrances that Lush had us vote from during their LushLabs voting. Space Girl was one of the five winning product fragrances with the most votes.

I’ve always loved the Space Girl bath bomb when it was sold in stores and i was so bummed when Lush discontinued it. It was made with Black currant, Grapefruit, and bergamot. And it was a pale lilac color with silver glitter mixed in and red glitter dust on top to simulate the planet saturn and its red dust rings. Once inside the water it would release a red glitter which would look like a comet on the bottom of the tub. SO cool.

The space girl fragrance is a fruity scent. It’s citrussy and berryish. Citrussy because of the grapefruit and bergamot, and berryish because of the black currant. Black currant is the main ingredient in ‘The Comforter’ just for reference.

black currant
bergamot
grapefruit
almond essential oil

When i first spray the body spray on my arms it’s of course very strongly scented and alcohol-y. Also, when it’s wet i find that acrid note that some people find off putting in black currant. But once the body spray starts the dry down process on my skin-that acrid note disappears and just the fruity goodness remains.

The almond oil that Lush added to the body spray is nice. It adds a smooth and slightly sweet note to the fruity mix of citrus and berryliciousness.

As far as staying power this is better than most at staying true to it’s fragrance for any length of time once it dries down on the skin.

There’s a somewhat bitter note in between the fruity goodness. So it keeps the fragrance from being too sweet. The resulting scent reminds me of raspberry candy of some sort.

It’s not as sweet and fruity as Roller/Yummy Mummy for instance, but it’s more fruity and sweet than Sparkly Pumpkin.

I would recommend this if you like fruity scents that are different citrus/berry blends.

The scent lasts longer on the skin than Ectoplasm body spray, and about the same as the three others.

These are other Lush products with the same scent

Goth Fairy Sparkle massage bar

And a new Lush Harajuku special edition bubble bar for 2020 sold on the Lush UK and the Lush USA web sites.

I would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.

Here’s a video where i spray on, review and describe these five body sprays.

Beauty Sleep

5 out of 5 rating. See my video below where i apply it and review it.

Mark Constantine, owner of Lush Uk wanted to have a little fun so he decided to work with Helen Ambrosen on a new face and body mask.

They made it by adding a teaspoon of gorgeous moisturizer and then they added the ingredients to ‘Sleepy’, Lavender, Yang ylang and Tonka.

when they finalized the product he announced that they will let us have a crack at naming the product. So people submitted they’re names and a handful of people chose ‘Beauty Sleep’ and this is the name that won.

it’s a perfect name. the mask smells amazing! if you know what the gorgeous moisturizer smells like you can imagine that plus sleepy.

instructions recommend slathering it on your face and your arms, neck, chest, back, stomach and then let it stay on your skin for 10-20 minutes while you’re in the tub or in the shower. Then after that time just rinse it off.

it’s got ground adult beans for exfoliating and it’s LOADED with many moisturizing ingredients.

it’s a beautiful pinkish lavender color.

“Aluxurious clay face mask, which includes a spoonful of our most decadent moisturiser, Gorgeous, for a boost of hydration. The perfect step in your evening skincare routine, to help you #getyourbeautysleep.

“The combination of lavender and neroli is even more soothing than I anticipated. I noticed a significant improvement in my stress level within minutes. Skin feels soft and smooth afterwards. – bethanyjoyhall

“From its lavender and neroli scent that calms the mind…to its freshly ground Aduki beans, fresh coconut, honey, kaolin, and talc which calm and soothe the skin-this face mask is a 10/10 for me! It left my skin feeling calm, moisturized, and toned all at once.” – LaredoLushies

For a limited time, enjoy a deluxe sample of our Gorgeous moisturiser with every purchase of Beauty Sleep face mask*

As part of this purchase, all customers will receive an email with exclusive access to our special mindfulness meditation led by Mindfulness practitioner, Rose Eskafi, free of charge, to calm the mind and help you soon drift off to sleep.

*While stocks last. Sample size is 7g.

How to use
Run a warm bath, put on some relaxing music and apply this beautiful face mask to clean skin. Sit back and relax. Inhale the neroli and let the valerian and lemon verbena get to work. Once you’re feeling relaxed and ready for bed, rinse away with warm water.

Lo and Behold when those of us who bought the Lush Kitchen subscription box from Lush Uk opened up our June boxes we found a surprise: a container of Beauty Sleep face and body mask. Yay!

List of ingredients

As far as Lush masks go i really like this one. it made my skin feel cleansed and moisturized and it smelled gorgeous. Using it before bed was a good idea since the ingredients in ‘Sleepy’ (twilight) are conducive to sleep.

AbombinaBall shower jelly

5 out of 5 rating.

See my demo video of it below.

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.

Yog Nog jelly

5 out of 5 rating

See my video below of this jelly 🙂

Lush introduced Yog Nog jelly in August of 2018. Lush may, or may not, have this available for Christmas 2019.

This is an opaque, single colored yellow jelly. It feels more conditioning than other Lush jellies.

Its made with Clove bud oil, and ylang ylang flower. It reminds me of the burnt sugar smell of a creme brulee dessert. Like egg nog with burnt sugar. Yummy.

Lush International has made many products in the yog nog scent.

IMP-atient

5 out of 5 rating

I LOVE ALL Lush bath oils, ive used all 20 Lush bath oils and have loved every one. This new one is no exception. Its even cuter because its not just round, it’s in a shape.

This is one of a dozen or so new bath oils introduced exclusively at the new Lush Liverpool spa Megastore.

For a limited time Lush Uk decided to make these available for purchase for anyone to buy on their retail website lush.co.uk under ‘lush labs’.

Imp-atient smells so good. Kind of like cherry-ish.

This little imp is so cute. Almost too cute to use.

‘On those days when you’re feeling impish and can’t shake the chip on your shoulder, quieten your bugbears with this appeasing cocoa butter bath oil. Rose absolute restores and renews your sense of balance, while pink pepper gives your bad attitude a kick up the backside, bringing you back down to earth. Cleansing cistus oil adds a honeyed fragrance, sweetening your mood and cleansing your skin. As this candied pink oil dissipates, your mood melts away. Step out of the bath empowered by your emotions and ready to face the day.

See my 5 minute tub demo video of this cute little guy.

Aurora Borealis

5 out of 5 rating

See my 5 minute sink demo video below.

Trip the light fantastic and create a spectacle in your shower with this colourful creation to lift your mood and polish your skin to perfection. Buff your way to softness with sugar and fine sea salt, while potato starch leaves you feeling silky. An uplifting blend of zesty Sicilian lemon oil and invigorating spearmint oil combine with pineapple powder for an enzymic burst of freshness as bright as the Northern Lights. Break off a piece and hold under running water for a scrubby paste that you can gently work over wet skin to feel strokably smooth. 

The spearmint isnt that strong i must say but its blended nicely with the mint. Its not very sweet. It almost smells like a citrus floral to me.

Youre supposed to pinch a piece off instead of trying to wet the whole bar. I show how in my video sink demo below.

Comforter shower bomb

5 out of 5 rating. See my demo & review vid below.

Lush has introduced a new shower bomb to the mix. The Comforter shower bomb. Originally introduced at the new Lush Liverpool Spa Mega store, Lush uk decided to offer this to the public for a limited time, on their Lush Labs site at lush.co.uk

So i bought two. I love anytjibg in the Comforter scent.

So far ive loved every one of the 7 different Lush Cosmeticd shower bombs that ive tried.

This Comforter shower bomb is right up there amongst my favorite shower bombs.

Youre supposed to pass the shower bomb quickly one time through the water (dont leave it in the water) and then it starts to activate.

It becomes foamy and creamy and you can rub this foamy cream on your skin to cleanse. Then simply rinse off with warm water.

Its not a conditioning bar, it’s a cleanser, so theres nothing left on the skin after rinsing. Its not drying, it just leaves soft clean skin.

I find this bar to smell like the other comforter scented products, though i definitely smell more of the bergamot note than in other comforter products.

I would recommend this. It was about £2.75

Heres my video sink demo

Sleepy soap

4 out of 5 rating

This soap was made exclusively for the New Lush Liverpool mega store, but Lush Uk decided to offer this on their retail website for anyone who wished to purchase one.

Naturally i had to buy one.

It was made in the classic Lush Twilight fragrance.

The fragrance components are lavender, tonka bean (which smells caramel-ish), and ylang ylang.

The blend is floral, herbal with a subtle creamy background. Its only very subtley sweet.

When washing with it this has a creamy consistency. It makes loads of lather.

I recorded a relaxing ASMR style 8 mi ute review and demo video, just for something different.

Even if you dont like asmr videos it does show how it lathers up at the sink on my arm and hands.
