Lush Kitchen January 2021 subscription box voting

These are the nine discontinued products Lush chose for us to vote on. They will pick four, and one exclusive never made before product.

When i get the box i’ll take photos of everything and do an unboxing video and i’ll post those here on this same page.

Here are my photos of these products.

Lush ‘Violet Nights’ liquid bath oil.

This is a former 1993 ‘Cosmetics To Go’ company product, (Lush before they called themselves Lush), which Lush reintroduced back in 2011, and again in the Lush Kitchen in 2014. Cosmetics To Go had four or five different bath oils. Knights in White Chocolate, Saucery, Moody Blues, and one more i can’t remember. I’ll have to look in my cosmetics to go catalogs.

This purple oil turns into a milky white in the water.

This is up for the vote for the Lush Kitchen Jan 2021 subscription box .

It’s made with Violet, sandalwood, vanilla, ylang ylang.

Some folks don’t like it because the smell is not good to them. I would rate this a 4 out of 5.

Lush makes a perfume called ‘V’ that is the same scent.

I have a video demo of its texture and opacity in a glass up close on my lushalot youtube channel and also on my lushalot instagram account if you want to check it out.

Lush ‘Vanilla Fountain’ bath bomb.

Up for the vote for the Lush Kitchen Jan 2021 subscription box.
This was originally created in 2008. And it’s been remade in the former incarnation of the Lush Kitchen 3 or 4 times.
I’d rate it a 3 out of 5

One time Lush Uk made giant vanilla fountains called Vanilla Mountain for purchase on their retail website that was three of four times the size.

Vanilla Fountain is made with the Lush ‘Vanillary’ perfume scent.
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Vanilla Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Tonka Absolute, Sandalwood, Gardenia Extract, Colour 45350, Vanilla Pod.

It’s a fast fizzer and not as creamy as you would think. it doesn’t color the water.
It smells sweet and vanillary because of the tonka bean.
Lush has made many products in this scent, you may have used one of them:

Vanilla Mountain bath bomb (xl)
Dear Santa wash card sheet
Heavenilli massage bar
Life’s a Beach showder
Vanillary Brûlée candle
Vanillary perfume
Vanilla Fountain bath bomb
Vanilla Puff dusting powder
Vanillary body spray
Vanilla in the Mist soap

Lush Times Summer 2008: When Mo brings a new Bath Ballistic to a Lush creative team meeting, she gets a bowl full of warm water, drops it in, then hands it around the room for everyone to smell. With the Vanilla Fountain, no-one wanted to let go of the bowl and pass it on. Without doubt, this little Ballistic is going to sell out in minutes. Simon Constantine made the comforting vanilla scent with natural vanilla absolute – the posh stuff made from vanilla pods – with a touch of restful sandalwood and a note of burnt caramel. It was inspired by the extraordinary deserts at Heston Blumental’s amazing restaurant, The Fat Duck at Bray (www.fatduck.co.uk).

Lush ‘Mrs Whippy’ bath bomb.
Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 Lush Kitchen subscription box.

This was made in the late 2000’s for Valentine’s day, only in the Uk.

It’s fruity in a slight berryish way because of the currant, then it’s got fruity buchu oil, and vanilla like tonka bean. It’s a slow melting fizzier that is creamy.

When Mark Constantine flew me to the Uk the first time i walked past a sweet shop and the hand written sign said ‘Mr and Mrs Whippy’ and i was so excited that i took a video of it 😀

I’ve got a tub demo of it on my lushalot youtube channel and also on my lushalot instagram.

Lush description
Lush Times: With her husband off making ice creams, Mrs Whippy needed something to do, didn’t she? Jack Constantine created this one for his wife; he wanted a soothing, creamy bath that would relax her and leave her skin as soft as a vegan alternative to silk.

I’d rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Soya Milk Powder, Tapioca Flour, Perfume, Cream of Tartar, Fairtrade Sugar, Cocoa Absolute, Black Currant, Tonka Absolute, Almond Essential Oil, Buchu Oil, Titanium Dioxide, Cocamide DEA, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Colour 45410

Lush’ bomb.
i would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.
Originally made in 2002.

Has the Lush “Karma’ fragrance

I have a bath demo on my Lushalot youtube channel. It makes a bright green water.
It’s a fast fizzer, fizzing wildly in the tub releasing its strong karma fragrance.

I liked this colorful Karma scented ballistic. It’s green and yellow because Lush thought it would be good to have a bath bomb in the same colors as the Lush logo was originally. It made a lovely bright yellow-green color in the water.

Ingredients: 180g Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Patchouli Oil, Orange Oil, Lavendin Oil, Pine Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Elemi Oil, Gardenia Extract, Colour 42050.

2002 Lush North America Lush Times description: There are only a few carefully chosen products to which we give the name ‘Lush’. The Lush Bath Bomb is the only one currently available; we named it because it encapsulates Lushness. It is green and yellow like a logo (with a little logo ribbon in case you hadn’t noticed) and it smells of our Karma perfume, which is pretty much what our shops smell like.

Lush ‘The Godmother’ soap.
Originally made in 2008.
It’s made in the Lush Candy Fluff scent, along with melting marshmallow moments bath melt and others in this scent family.

It’s a beautiful rose pink soap with pinkish blue glitter. It’s scent is nice and strong. Kind of a pink but spicy clove scent. Along the lines of Creamy Candy but brighter and a wee bit spicier.

I’d rate it a 4
The Godmother is not exceptionally drying to my hands nor is it moisturizing , but somewhere in the middle. I was surprised at how low lathering this soap was. The Godmother soap is palm oil free, so there is not as much lather as the prevously made Lush soaps which had palm oil in them. The scent stays on my hands for a goodly while. I did notice that the Godmother lather was different. No lather, more creamy.

Lush 2008 description Despite our Ballistics, skincare, haircare and all other wonderful things for our baths showers and bodies, people tend to call Lush “That soap shop”. This is fair, because we do make exceedingly good soaps. We looked into this (technically Pia looked into it and we were all very interested) and found that 68% of people in the UK wash their hands with washing up liquid. Thats just not right. Its not good for your hands. Stop it! Mo, our soap supreme, has made this special soap (scented with our best selling Snow Fairy scent) for keeping by the kitchen sink. Think of it as your fairy godmother for the hands.

@lush ‘Happy Blooming’ shower jelly.
Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 subscription box.

On one of my photos if you swipe left will show you what i think of this jelly. 😂 It’s so good i bought a bunch when they were being sold in the first incarnation of the Lush Kitchen in 2015.

This was made only by Lush UK and was never sold to the public.

It smells like cherries. It’s SO. DAMN. GOOD. I have a youtube video demo of it close up at the sink where i slice it and wash with it.

Some folks think it’s too sickly sweet or fake smelling. While it’s certainly strong it’s not a fake scent to me because it’s loaded with real cherries. And it also contains coconut. I usually don’t like very sweet things from Lush, but in the case of Happy Blooming it seems to be beyond my control because my mouth actually starts watering when I smell it. In my opinion, the jelly and the lotion are stronger in scent moreso than the bath oil melt & the solid fragrance are.

I would rate this a 6 out of 5 rating if i could. 😄

I took a couple of photos of the scent family years ago. The very first product made was the bath melt, in 2011, which has raised cherries on it. The bath melt is huge and you can break four pieces of it.

@lush Karma shower gel.

Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 subscription box

The scent reminds me of hippies from the 60’s and 70’s. Lush used to advertise it that way as well. 😀

I have a close up sink demo of this on my lushalot youtube channel showing how it lathers.

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate,Perfume, Patchouli Oil, Orange Oil, Lavendin Oil, Pine Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Elemi Oil, Gardenia Extract.

This is a shower gel with the Lush “Karma” scent of orange, patchouli and pine.
Karma shower gel is a much better way to get the Karma scent on your bod than say, the soap. It’s also possible to wash your hair with it or even use it as a bath foam. It’s easier to lather than the Karma soap. It’s thick and gelatenous. A little goes a long way on a shower pouff, vs. the soap gets smaller and disappears much quicker oz for oz. It also makes great bubbles in the tub. The lovely Karma fragrance stays on the skin long too! 😀

I’d rate this a 5 out of 5.

This is another HUGE scent family, having more than 15 products. I’ll add the washcloud (a non edible cotton candy type of product) on my @lushexclusives page with more info 😉

Lush ‘Heavenly Bodies’ buttercream. Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 box.
All pictures here are of the buttercream including the in store desert-like tower with chocolate shavings on it.

Butter Creams
Creamy Cakes of Glycerine Soap made in huge buckets and hand-rolled in petals, chocolate, cocoa butter and other unexpected ‘packaging’, our butter creams look like huge helpings of luxury dessert. At room temperature they start out smooth, soft and slippery, but if you’re the sensation-seeking type you can choose to chill or freeze them to turn them into blocks of invigoratingly refreshing shower soap.

My youtube a video where i demo & review heavenly bodies. 


I’d rate it a 4 out of 5

Ingredients: Water, Glycerine, Rhassoul Mud, Jojoba Oil, Cocoa Butter, Perfume, Tangerine Oil, Sweet Orange Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Cocoa Butter. 
old price 7.0 oz $14.40 Heavenly Bodies – 3.5 oz $7.20

Ohhh, there’s nothing better than smearing your favorite foody combo (orange and chocolate) all over yourself in the bath, and having it be less drying than soap. It’s a firm buttercream. I love the Sonic Death Monkey scent of this Heavenly Bodies buttercream. I do believe this choclate dipped orange scent is my favorite.

Lush description: Want a body like an angel? Got a body like a zombie? Revive your skin with a muddy mixture of chocolate, cocoa butter, refreshing orange juice, anti-microbial Rhassoul mud and stimulating tangerine oils. We scent each chunk of Heavenly Bodies Butter Cream with vanilla absolute, cocoa absolute (yes, you really can get natural chocolate perfume), tangerine and sweet orange so it smells rather like a chocolate orange cheesecake but it does taste like soap. For the best effect smooth it all over the outside of your body. You’ll smell like an angel and your skin will feel as soft as gossamer.

Scent Family: Sonic Death Monkey Shower Gel; Chocolate Whipstick Lip Balm

Lush ‘American Cream’ body lotion. I’ll put my demo video link of it in my profile here.

It’s up for the vote for the Jan 2021 subscription box, along with nine other discontinued products.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Almond Oil, Cocoa Butter, Glycerine, Vanilla Absolute, Clary Sage Oil, Lavender Oil, Benzoin, strawberry, Perfume.

First off-even though American Cream is advertised as having strawberry in it-it doesn’t smell like strawberry.
American Cream is a vanilla based scent which is akin to a vanilla milkshake, which is where the name comes from. also has clary sage, and lavender as its scent components, adding an herbal note. 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.
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.

The body lotion is a thinner consistency. It’s nice. I’m kind of jaded because i’ve seen Lush offer this MANY times over the last 15 years. So to me it’s not exclusive. There’s kind of an inside joke amongst old skool Lushies-‘Oh there’s the exclusive American Cream body lotion again.’
It used to be much thicker.
It’s nice, not the best Lush lotion and certainly not the worst. i’d give it a 3 out of 5 rating.

The scent family of products is HUGE. The very first Lush product with this scent is called ‘Shimmy Shimmy’ iridescent massage bar. I show most of the products (not all) in a photo i took that i’ve attached here on this post.

Lush Kitchen November subscription box ( Christmas ) 2020

We’re voting on these

When i get the sub box that i order i’ll add the unboxing video here.

Bling Crosby bubble bar

Glogg shower gel

Hokkaido (Winterbath) bath bomb

Jilted Elf shower jelly

Maple Taffy lip balm

Mr Punch soap

Snowcake shower gel

Snowdrop bath bomb

Sparkler bath bomb

Here’s what got the most votes, and what was in our subscription box and my unboxing.

Snowdrop

Initially made in 2008 by Lush UK.

See a video link below.

It’s an all white bomb with a large polished sugar crystal on top. It doesn’t make bath art and it’s a fast fizzier. No matter who reviews this bomb, the consensus is that this smells heavenly. 😊 It’s orange and mint, which is a rare combination for Lush. It’s also slightly sweet. I love the scent.

Here’s a video of it from Comfortinscents on instagram

Ingredients: 2829 Snowdrop £2.95

Large Sugar Crystals, Perfume, Iridescent, Mandarin Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Peppermint Oil, Limonene, *Linalool.

Lush Times Xmas 2008: Astonishingly refreshing, head-clearing beauty! You might be tempted by the bright colours of the other Lush Ballistics, but promise us that you won’t miss out on the new Snowdrops bath. If the big sugar crystals don’t tempt you, and the iridescent sparkles aren’t your bag please take one home ewith you all the same. Drop it in the bath and your life will change for the better. Drop it in the bath and your life will change for the better. take the head clearing, reviving citrus scents of mandarin and grapefruit, then add a genius dash of peppermint and you have the most amazing, life affirming Ballistic ever to sneak up on you and give you the slap in the face that you need (metaphorically speaking of course). Once a Snowdrops bomb has woken you up in the morning, you will need to buy more. But no! These are seasonal specials! Buy a big airtight container and stock up on as many as you can carry – that’s if we haven’t got there first and bought them all.

Lush Lime Smoothie

4 out of 5 rating

There are Lush smoothies i like more than lush lime and lush smoothies that i like less than lush lime.

Lush Lime has the same scent as the Lush ‘karo-karounde’ bath bomb.


Ingredients: fresh butternut squash infusion, glycerine, olive oil, almond oil, vegetable soap, fresh lime juice, sodium lauryl sulphate, fresh strawberry juice, grapefruit oil, karo-karounde absolute, perfume

Pokey stick of doom thickness test: http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y181/l … ystick.jpg

Review: Wow. While Whitewash and Turkish Delight still wins because of the consistency, Lush Lime is my pick for one of the best smelling Lush smoothies. I couldn’t wait to hold it up to my husbands nose so he could smell how wonderful it is and at last agree with me. He said it smelled medicinal and weird. I smell limes, limes, and more wonderful limes. Sweet tangy tart fresh and the consistency is not as stiff as Lush Turkish Delight and Whitewash, it’s more of a thinner consistency like Creamed Almond and Coconut smoothie.

The pic has a spoonful of it for a thickness test of sorts. It looks exactly like Creme Fraiche. I’m so hooked on the smell though, and it leaves skin soft. How do they do it?

LT 1998 description: The fresh fruit juicy Lush Lime Smoothie gets your body squeaky clean while the oils of almond and olive smooth and relax. A true joy to use, as the scents of strawberry, grapefruit, and karo-karounde refresh you and the bathroom.

Slammer

3.5 out of 5 rating

lemon Peel Decoction (Citrus limetta), Fresh Scottish Sea Water, Fresh Lime Juice, Honey (Mel), Lime Oil, Rock Salt, Litsea Cubeba Oil, Lemon Oil, Perfume.

Review: I think the lemon in this smells too strong to me. I like Back for Breakfast shower gel more. Slammer is the best for waking up it’s said. Lush made this shower gel to be the same as their once loved “Slammer” ballistic. It’s a popular shower gel , some say the Slammer scent smells like a margarita. The guys would like this Slammer gel too as it’s a neutral scent. It’s got just the right amount of sweetness. Smells kind of like lime and lemon punch.

Lush 2005 Description: If Back For Breakfast is too soft for you then Slammer will be your shower gel of choice. It metamorphosed not long back from a Bath Ballistic to a shower gel because the kind of people likely to need a Slammer alarm call do not always have time for a bath in the morning. (Although it does a very good job as a bubble bath for those too tired to stand up.) You may notice, those of you who like the odd tequila cocktail, that our Slammer, with its fresh lime juice and rock salt, bears a certain resemblance to another sort of slammer. Those of you who are partial to the other sort of slammer in the evening will probably need a bottle of ours to get you through the morning.

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 and desceiption video below.

Made as a surprise for inclusion in the May 2020 Lush Kitchen subscription box.

Its made in the same scent as the limited edition bath bomb of the same name.

Its scent is made with peppermint, vanilla and orange oil. Its a yummy, sweet vanilla mint.

This can be used whole on the body as soap in the shower or as i show in my video one can cut it up and use it in a kitchen seieve as a bubble bath.

Heres a video of it

Lush Kitchen July 2020 subscription box

These are the nine products we had to choose from this month. I added which of them won the vote. And my unboxing of it is below.

The products to be voted on for inclusion in the July Lush Kitchen subscription box.


Coconut deo powder
Heavanilli massage bar
Creamed almond and coconut smoothie
Freeze shower gel
Melomint bubble bar
Yoga Bomb
Vanilla Puff Dusting Powder
Dreamwash Smoothie


Running to the Embassy body conditioner

Here’s my unboxing video

Heavanilli

5 out of 5 rating

Lush Times: Sweet delicious Vanilla Fountain fragrance – tonka bean, jasmine and heaps of vanilla absolute. At the time of writing, we’ve not had the chance to put this to a real live test; we’ve used it on our arms in the creative team meeting, sniffed it with enthusiasm and longing, but as yet, we haven’t been able to take them home with us, smooth them all over our lovers’ bodies to see what happens next. Heavanilly’s melty butters smell of sensual jasmine, vanilla and tonka – and cinder toffee – so we can guess.

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Fair Trade Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Perfume, Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata), Hydroxycitronellal, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 73360

I love this massage bar. Out of the 60 or so different Lush massage bars, Heavanilli is one of my favorites. Its made in the Lush ‘Vanillary’ perfume fragrance. Lush has made many products with this popular perfume scent.

I would recommend it. I enjoy using it and Its one that i would buy again and again.

Dreamwash smoothie

3 out of 5 rating

Its in the same ecent family as ‘In The Nude’ bath melt and ‘Fresh Farmacy’ facial wash.

Website: Soothing shower soap to calm red, dry skin. Dreamwash is like Fresh Farmacy combined with Dream Cream to make the perfect Smoothie for troubled skin. Dreamwash is incredibly mild and actively soothing – wonderful for skin which has a habit of going flaky and red when you touch it with anything but plain water. We mix chamomile with calamine, calming aloe vera and rose, tea tree, lavender essential oils. It works very well, if we say it ourselves.

This is my least favorite smoothie that Lush makes only because of the somewhat medicinal scent. I dont have particularly sensitive skin, but for those that do this smoothie is a godsend.

Its made with skin soothing ingredients.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Calamine Powder, Organic Aloe Vera Gel (Aloe barbadensis), Water (Aqua), Rapeseed Oil; Sunflower Oil; Coconut Oil (Brassica napus; Helianthus annuus; Cocos nucifera), Glycerine, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Hydroxide, Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Chamomile Oil (Anthemis nobilis), Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), Lavender Oil (Lavandula augustifolia), Sodium Chloride, *Linalool, Perfume

Freeze

4 out of 5 rating


Vegan 8.4oz

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Fresh Spring Water (Aqua), Fresh Scottish Sea Water (Aqua), Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Aloe Vera Gel (Aloe barbadensis), Sea Salt (Sodium chloride), Perfume, Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Bergamot Oil (Citrus bergamia), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Colour 42045, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

:lol:

Review: Woo! That’s the way it feels. Powerfully minty with a teeny weeny bit of citrus. Its kind of a sweet mint, more sweet than ‘Dirty’ not as herbally as ‘Dirty’. It’s fabulous in the morning or when it’s hot and muggy outside. Oh and ladies, don’t get this near your va jay jay, it can be kind of uncomfortable for sensitive areas.

Lush 2005 Description: Peppermint has this amazing quality of making your feel cool when you’re hot and warm when you’re cold. When you’re in a warm shower and you put a dollop of Freeze Shower Gel on your body it gives you a refreshing, tingly feeling all over. Peppermint has been used for thousands of years to help the skin stay soft and the mind stay focused. One view is that it was named ‘mente’ meaning thought because it is said to help concentration and inspiration. If you lack either of these, try making Freeze your morning shower gel and shampoo of choice.

Creamed Almond & Coconut Smoothie


3.5 out of 5.0 rating

Ingredients: Vanilla Pod Infusion (Vanilla planifolia), Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Glycerine, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Vanilla Extract (Vanilla planifolia), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Labdanum Resinoid (Cistus labdanum), Sodium Chloride, EDTA, Tetrasodium Editronate, Perfume, Methylparaben, Propylparaben

Lush Times 2005 description: The Creamed Almond and Coconut Smoothie Shower Soap is more of a mousse in texture than a cream, if you want to get technical about it. Dip your fingers into the pot and scoop it out and it sits there, scented with sensual jasmine, calming ylang ylang and gentle vanilla, waiting to be applied to your body to clean it, moisturize it with almond and coconut oils and perfume it with the all of the above plus deep, divinely scented labdanum. After washing, don’t waste it, wear something revealing.

Size: 8.8 oz.

Review: This is subtley nice. It’s a mellow scent like King of Skin or Sympathy for Skin, it’s lighter and thinner than the other smoothies but the smells is creamy and nice, and it feels nice. Its more almond-y than coconut-y.

I absolutely LOVE the Lush smoothies. They just might be my favorite alternative to soap product. Theyre so easy to use. And tgey feel WONDERFUL. Other Lush smoothies, like Scrumptious, whitewash, lime, are my favorites before almond coconut one though.

I like it and would use it but i wouldnt buy another one, Whereas i would buy the other Lush smoothies again.

They should not use “coconut” in the name because it’s really all about almond. I understand that coconut is part of the ingredient but common reflex is to think that the name is somehow related to the scent but here that’s not the case. I think it smells more like the nutts massage bar. Texture is creamy nice though. Easy to use an apply. 

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.

Supertramp shower gel

4 out of 5 rating.

This shower gel.is exclusive to the Lush Uk Kitchen subscription box.

Its actually made by combining two existing

Lush products: ‘Tramp’ and ‘Smaragadine’.

Tramp is a old lush favorite shower gel that smelled very earthy like a fairy glade. Its main scent notes were patchouli and oakmoss.

Smaragadine was an even older product that was a liquid bubble bath made with mint, lavender, rose petal, sandalwood, oranfe peel, chamomile, petitgrain and ginger.

Ingredients: White Horehound and Peppermint Leaf Infusion, Balm Herb, Rose Petal and Lavender Flower Infusion, Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Fine Sea Salt, Organic Orange Peel Decoction, Patchouli Oil, Petitgrain Oil, Pimento Berry Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Ginger Oil, Plantain Vinegar Gel, Perfume, Methyl Ionone, Eugenol, *Limonene, Linalool, Chlorophyllin, Methylparaben. * Occurs naturally in essential oils

Review: Thick, green and mossy. Doubles as a bubble bath. Very burnt-patchouli/clove scented; if you like the Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bar, you’ll probably like Supertramp. Scent lingers on the skin for hours after showering. I like it, but not quite as much as Grass.

Lush Kitchen description: An earthy, mystical shower gel that smells like wandering through tall dark pine trees in an enchanted forest over a cool soft carpet of moss. With horehound to cleanse the skin, peppermint to add a warming, fresh top note and the sensual, floral scents of lavender and rose.

So Supertramp has all of these notes. Its a multi layered spa type of scent.

The Supertramp shower gel is a dark green,

thick gel that is calming and soothing.

I woukd say that its one of the best green, earthy shower gels that Lush has made, with the exception of Tramp.

Its a unisex scent that would be liked by both men and women.

The Supertramp in this Lush Kitchen Subscription box is the regular 250g Medium size.

I would recommend and would buy another one if i had the chance.

Heres a video i recorded of the Supertramp shower gel https://youtu.be/3KzOaX_lBlw

Vanilla Dee-Lite

vanillary scent

Lush Times Online: Delightfully soothing, creamily smoothing, vanilla scented lotion for your body and hands. The Lush body creams that come in black pots are the thicker ones; the lighter ones, like Vanilla Delite, turn up in bottles. (100% recycled of course.) It’s been named Delite instead of Delight as a joke, not to annoy the writing team. The important thing is that it’s made with lovely light oils and butters – including Hawaiian tamanu and monoi – organic coconut water and Simon’s Vanilla Mountain scent! Use it to scent and soften your skin.

Ingredients: Hibiscus Infusion (Hibiscus sabdariffa), Spring Water, Pure Organic Coconut Water (Cocos nucifera), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Stearic Acid, Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Fresh Kiwi Fruit (Actinidia chinensis), Glycerine, Triethanolamine, Illipe Butter (Shorea stenoptera), Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum), Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata), Tamanu Oil (Calophyllum inophyllum), Cetearyl Alcohol, *Coumarin, Hydroxycitronellal, Perfume, Methylparaben, Propylparaben * Occurs naturally in Essential Oils
