Meet Scrubee – the newest buffer on the block.
With all that hydrating honey and cocoa butter he may seem like a real softy, but don’t underestimate his polishing power – he’s packed full of ground coconut shells and ground almonds to give you a gentle, effective exfoliation.
Here’s a close up demo video and review of my Scrubee bar.

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.
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.

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!

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.
