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.

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!

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.

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 thst strong i must say but its blended nicely with the mint. Its not very swert. It almost smells like a citrus floral to me.

Youre supposed to pinch a piece off insteD of ttuing to wet the whole bar. I show hoe in my video sink demo below.

Lush Cookie Dough Body Scrub

5 out of 5 rating

Who needs the cookie jar when you can fulfil your sweet cravings with Cookie Dough body scrub? An irresistibly inviting blend of comforting vanilla absolute, softening cocoa powder and mouthwatering hydration to the skin and a satisfying sugar fix. A dash of coarse granulated sugar, a pinch of superfine sea salt and a handful of silky cornflour is a batch made in heaven, whipping up the creamiest of lathers and gently buffing the skin for a velvety touch. You’ll go nuts for a triple serving of toasted hazelnut oil, protective pistachio oil and fruity almond essential oil, releasing waves of sweetly-scented cherries that delicately blossom on the skin. This scrub really takes the biscuit, who says you can’t enjoy baked goods in the bathroom?

I recorded a demo and review video for you under good lights up at the sink on my arm here at this link

Smells great! Feels great!

I couldn’t help myself and i tasted it, its vert salty lol.

Im very glad i was able to buy one. I actually bought two. Im having a giveaway on instagram of one pot.

Dirty scrub

5 out of 5 rating See my sink demo vodeo beñow.

Lush has introduced 350+ new products at their NEW Megastore at the Liverpool SPA store. This body scrub is one of these exclusive products.

The Lush Labs decided to sell some of the exclusive products that were at this store online for a limited time only. So i bought two scrubs. Dirty and Easy Peeler.

Lush designed the Dirty scrub to look just like a kitchen sponge. I love that! The yellow side is smooth and the green side is a little rougher.

These are so much better than the sugar scrub domes that lush used to make. Those older style scrubs become so hard and scratchy that using them more than a couple times becomes a challenge. Not so with this scrub.

The sugar seems to be mixed in with the cocoa butter mixture, not just sitting on the top layer.

This Dirty scrub was made with the ‘Dirty’ fragrance. Lush has made many things in their clasdic Dirty fragranxe. The fragrance is made with herbs, lemon, mint. It smells natural, earthy, herbal, lemony and minty.

The scrub bar doesnt fall apart or become a mess after one use, it stays the same and so i just kerp it in my soap dish or on top of a black pot lid.

It exfoliates my rough, dry dead skin and then moisturizes the skin thats left with moisturizing cocoa butter.

I love it! I would rate this a 5 out of 5.

Heres a videp i recorded of me using it

Easy Peeler

5 out of 5 rating

Lush has introduced two or more new exclusive body scrubs at their new mega store in the Lush Liverpool spa. This ‘Easy Peeler’ body scrub is one of them.

It smells and looks like an orange. Slightly sweet. These new Lush sugar scrubs are much less hard and scratchy than their former style of sugar scrubs.

These are for exfoliating rough dry skin and also conditions for moisturizing the smooth skin that is left behind.

I recorded a close up sink arm demo of it for you below to see how it works.

The exfoliating is done with sugar crystals that are mixed in with the cocoa butter. So its a gentler scrub than the former more agressive lush scrub bars.

I would recommend these. They dont fall apart after one use. These can be used again and again a few times without becoming a mess.

My skin feels soft, not greasy and moisturized. I dont feel like i have something on my skin. It just feels like my skin onky moisturized and soft.

Coco Scrub

3 out of 5 rating. See my 4 minute Sink Demo Video below.

If it wasn’t so cute i would’ve given it a 1 or 2.

my video shows and explains the difficulty in use. It’s just not pleasant.

I Guess we can’t love every single thing. ✌🏼❤️

Love Island scrub

3 out of 5 rating

See my Sink Demo Video below.

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.

Sugar Plum Fairy scrub

This is a 5 out of 5 product.

Its purple. Its cute. It smells like plums. It moisturizes my dry skin.

I am so enamored with this scrub. To put all your questions to rest. No. When i asked about the scent of the scrub the first time, someone thought i meant the lushlabs scrub i was holding in my other hand, so they told me plum rain, which it is. But THIS scrub here, which is what i was asking about, is NOT plum rain, its sugar plum scented. So that’s where all the confusion came. I apologize. I’ll change it everywhere that i have this erroneous info. 👍😘❤️

Typically i dont like the non-potted scrubs from Lush because they seem to dry out too quickly, making it eventually too scratchy to use on my skin.

Not so with this scrub. Its got seemingly double the regular amount of cocoa butter than others of its kind, making it a bit wetter.

This isn’t too big nor too small, it seems like just the right size to be able to use it up without it sitting around gettibg dry and scratchy.

Initially the dark color was worrisome but i didnt have to worry about any staining. There was none to be had.

Its got coarser exfoliating grains of sugar.

Here’s a close up demo video and review i recorded for you of the sctub on my arm at tge sink.

It was made with the same scent as the lip scrub of the same name.

Scrub Scrub Scrub

4 out of 5 rating

Scrub scrub scrub is one of two new scrubs that Lush uk has made for 2018.

As i said in my review video, i like using this scrub scrub scrub more than the new magic crystals scrub.

The color of magic crystals scrub is a prettier color but i like using scrub scrub more.

Although this one is drier and thus more challenging to use, it doesnt sting like the magic crystals scrub which is wetter and easier to apply.

I like this smell. Its not quite the Comforter scent.

Its got a vaguely fruity blackberry scent. I like the scent, its comforting.

It has currant in it, like the comforter but it doesnt have the same scent.

For starters, there’s no bergamot nor cypress in it like there is in the comforter.

Also, scrub scrub scrub has pine, rosemary oil, and Buchu oil, which the Comforter doesnt have.

Its got the same size scrubbies that magic crystals has. One is not coarser than the other.

If youre very fair don’t leave the scrub on your skin for very long.

I would give this scrub a 4 out of 5 rating.

I like other companies vegan, cruelty free scrubs better.

Here’s a video where i show it up close

Magic Crystals

i would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a moisturizing, scrub cleanser.

Initially i rated it a 5 out of 5 but i will say that because of what a couple of my followers have stated, it’s best not to get this in sensitive areas as it can burn/sting quite a bit.

So because of that i changed my rating to 4 out of 5.

It’s still a great above average product.

Initially i thought this was some kind of scrubby shower soap, like a scrubbe smoothie. But upon using it in my demo i discovered that its not meant to wash with.

One washes first then uses this after rinsing your soap or shower gel off. Then you rinse it off. Its conditioning. Its very conditioning compared to rub rub rub.

This isnt a fine exfoliation, its a coarser consistency, so just fyi that as i know some of you don’t like a coarse scrub.

here is a video i recorded where i demo how to use it.

It diesnt smell particularly herbal considering there is a good amount of sage in here. I only smell mint. Its not extremely sweet.

Magic needn’t only be cast with a flick of a wand or a twitch of a nose, magic can come in a tub in the bathroom.

Hop in a hot shower and let the warm water dance across your skin before scooping out a handful of this scrub.

Warming and stimulating aniseed oil accompanies fine sea salt and Epsom salts to brighten, buff and polish skin while fresh rosemary and sage infusions cleanse and tone. Rinse off and let menthol crystals, peppermint and spearmint oils to leave cool tingles up and down your skin like the remnants of magic recently cast.

Desert Date

5 out of 5 rating. See my demo video below.

Here’s a photo of mine with my devil duckie.

it smells similar to one of my favorite Lush products ever called ‘Fever’.

desert Date is made with jasmine, sandalwood and rose.

photo below courtesy of @Lushiezzz on Instagram

this is to exfoliate and moisturize in one bar. Much like lush ‘rub rub rub’ or ‘rough with the smooth’ bar, this is made with cocoa butter and illipe butter.

here’s a photo i took of mine below

The scent is a bold floral with a slightly Woody undertone. If you’re familiar with the Lush ‘Fever’ massage bar, ‘Fever’ perfume, or the ‘mirror mirror neck cream then you’ll recognize the sexy scent.

Scrubee

Sugar Plum Fairy scrub

3.5 out of 5 rating

sugarplumfairy-vi

 

This has a nice floral scent.

Ingredients: Sugar, Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric Acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Styrax Resinoid (Liquidambar styraciflua), Vetivert Oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus aurantium amara), Plum Kernel Oil (Prunus domestica), Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Titanium Dioxide, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 14700, Colour 45410, Colour 17200

 

Lush Times: Our newest scrubber was inspired by the Tchaikovsky ballet. When Helen was inventing, she thought that plum kernel oil would work a treat because it moisturises the skin and makes it feel silky smooth and adds an almondy scent to the product.

Wash You Were Here

Here’s a video demo i made of this innovative shower body cleanser.  It’s made in the scent of the ‘Olive Branch” shower gel and “Pop in the Bath’ bubble bar.  It’s a fun idea, but it also works nicely.

Ingredients: Fresh honeydew melon pulp, cellulose, bergamot oil, lemon oil, orange flower, mandarin orange oil, sodium lauryl sulphate.

Lush description: “Dear Inventive Washers,

We’d love to meet you in the bath or shower. You bring the soundtrack, we’ll bring the soap.”

Soft Touch

Size: 3.3oz $11.75

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Fresh Lemons, Shea Butter, Fresh Mango, Horsetail, Cleavers and Vanilla Pod Infusion, Lanolin, Perfume, Hydrogenated Palm Kernel Oil, Coconut Butter, Beeswax, Wheatgerm Oil, Soya Oil, Avocado Oil, Cardamom Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Neroli Oil, Lavender Oil, Gardenia Extract.

 

The first time I tried this I fell for it. To me it smells like some kind of wonderful baked good.  It makes my skin feel, a tad greasy.  So i use it for my hands and my legs only.  I’m mad for this bar.  Sometimes i keep a bar on my bedside table so i can smell it while i go to sleep and it’s the first thing i wake up to in the morning.

 

Lush 2006 Description: Our Soft Touch Body Butter is made with plant oils and butters to soften your skin and keep your hands smooth and seriously moisturised. Let it melt generously into your hands at night and leave it there for the nutritious coconut butter, beeswax and cocoa butter to work miracles while you sleep, then wake up to the touch of soft, vanilla scented fingertips. If you share your life with a partner it’s a very good idea to make sure that you keep their hands nicely buttered up with Soft Touch too. For your nails we make an infusion of cleavers (goose grass) and horsetail herb because they are full of silicones. We mash up fresh, organic mangoes to feed your skin because they are the most nutritious fruit in existence. (You’ll notice that they are cropping up in lots of our products). We put in beautiful oils like wheatgerm and avocado to protect and moisturise your hands. Keep it by your bedside and remember it last thing at night. You’ll be glad you did first thing in the morning.

 

How To Use: Apply THE SOFT TOUCH to the hands and finger cuticles by rubbing the bar between your hands. Body Butters are designed to melt at body temperatures – please keep them out of direct sunlight and somewhere cool!

Aqua Mirabilis body butter scrub bar

 

 

 

Aqua-Mirabilis

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter , Almond Butter ,
Ground Almond Shells, Sandalwood Oil, Rose Absolute, Perfume

This is a square, solid cocoa butter with ground almond shells for exfoliation.  It has a rose, almond, sandalwood scent.  I like it.  I buy one every now and then.

How to use:  You take a shower with soap or shower gel as usual, then after rinsing, rub this (not too hard) on your skin all over, and then rinse off in warm/hot water.  That’s it!

Lush 2005 descrption: The Aqua Mirabilis is now even more of a miracle. New, improved Aqua Mirabilis is BIGGER! Hooray! Now you can scrub generously all over and not worry about it running out before you reach your toes. If you ever treat yourself and get a scrub at a spa, the beauty therapists expect to exfoliate away huge swathes of dead skin. If you regularly give yourself an Aqua Mirabilis softening scrub, with its gently exfoliating ground almond shells, they are astonished to find that you’ve already got lovely, soft, fresh, healthy skin with hardly a dead grey cell there at all. The Aqua Mirabilis turns your bath or your shower into an instant, bargain body therapy. We make it with sandalwood and rose perfumes to soften your skin, cocoa butter and apricot kernel oil to moisturise it, plus natural ground almonds to scrub you even softer. You will feel fantastic after using one of these. Promise

Review: The original products called “Aqua Mirabilis Underwater Massage bar did triple duty; scrub, melt, massage, ballistic. It was very small and had apricot oil peach colored ballistic ‘crust’ which would fizz in the bath, and some sprinkles of marigold flowers on the top and also had marigold flowers mixed up in the coco butter inner layer. And it smelled of real roses and sandalwood. I like the original MUCH better.  Suffice it to say it took a few years for me to be a fan of these body butter squares. I would suggest this Aqua Mirabilis scrub,  or the other square scrub called Buffy the Backside Slayer.  Aqua Mirabilis does make ones skin incredibley soft and smooth.

Though i cant forgive Lush for destroying my Preciousss…I do like these cocoa butter scrub squares much better than those harder, dome shaped sugar scrubs that Lush has made.

Here is what the original “Aqua Mirabilis Underwater Massage Bar looked like.
