Golden Pear body scrub

5 out of 5 – see my close up sink demo below 😊

Time to scrub up? Pop into the shower and let the sea salt and prickly pear oil do the hard work, leaving you with softer skin. Listen out for crackle-ingly good shower ASMR with this natural exfoliator.

How to use: 
Wet your bar, rub between your hands and scrub using the pressure you like. Cut in two before you use or use whole bar for an indulgent pear-scented treat.

How to store:
Keep somewhere cool and dry until ready. This is enough for two full body scrubs so pop in a dish between uses.

i was very excited to buy golden pear scrub. i love all the lush golden pear products. It’s made with real pear. And i cannot resist bath bombs that look like fruit. And a gold one? Yeah, i’m not made of wood people.

If you’ve tried the Golden Pear body spray or jelly, you know that these two have a very strong astringent alcohol-y note to it. This isn’t the case with the scrub. The scrub smells more like the Golden Pear soap, bath bomb and bubble bar.

After using my skin is smooth, soft and moisturized, while also smelling like a pear. It’s conditioning without being too much.

As you can see in my video my arm didnt have any noticeable glitter when i was done.

Igloo (Australian Igloo) scrub

3 out of 5 rating

Lush ‘Australian Igloo’ sugar scrub.

Up for the vote for the July 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

The Kitchen subscription box site calls it ‘Igloo’. No. This is incorrect. It’s not Igloo. ‘Igloo’ is the name of a lush soap, and it’s also the name of a solid bath oil.

Originally made as a limited edition in store and online for Christmas 2011.

This was never remade in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen.
Up for the vote for the July 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

It’s a pine scent. I wish it was a minty scent.

This doesn’t age well. It’s a nice soft consistency with large exfoliating pieces of sugar. It gets dry after a week or so and becomes hard and too scratchy to use on your skin.

Orange scrub

5 out of 5 rating

This was a new, limited edition product this Christmas, but people liked it so much that Lush has made this a year round product!

It’s just like smelling a real peeled orange. It shares its scent with Lush ‘Brightside’ bubble bar and the discontinued ‘Easy Peeler’ scrub. Not too sweet, just fresh and orangey. Not fake but natural smelling. It smells juicy if that makes sense. It actually makes my mouth water.

It’s got coarse salt in it for exfoliating. So don’t scrub too hard.

This has orange oil, red Mandarin, tangerine oil, bergamot and orange peel! Oranges are one of my favorite smells and this smells so good like i could drink it. So incredible.

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.

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.

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

5 out of 5 rating

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.
