American Cream shower gel

3 out of 5 rating.

See my 8 minute video below. I worked very hard in this video to describe exactly what the scent smells like so you can make your best purchasing choices. 🙂

Here is a photo i took of the Lush products made in this scent.

the liquid version is on the thin side.

oddly i enjoyed washing with the naked version a bit more.

American Cream is a vanilla based scent which also has clary sage, and lavender as its scent components.  The hair conditioner added strawberry.  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. And in the perfumery industry there IS a difference between those two sentences. :-

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.

My review and demo video 🙂

Avocado Co Wash scent family

There are one or two other products that arent in this photo.

All the avocado co wash products made by Lush over the tears and currently are listed below in order of the originating product at the top of the list.

Avocado Co Wash hair conditioner

Avocado Co Wash shower gel. This is a thick shower gel.

Avocado Co Wash body lotion

Melusine exclusive, limited edition bath bomb

Avocado Co Wash exclusive uk body spray

Avocado Co Wash naked shower cream

I’m also checking to make sure that one of the Lush 2018 ‘bauble melts’ isnt avocado Co Wash scented.

 

Its a very sour lime scent with a nice sweet note in it. It’s quite a big burst of a limey fragrance made with sweet, fruity bergamot oil, fragrant incense-y yet citrussy frankincense (olibanum), and the lemony litsea cubeba herb.

There is the addition of avocado, which is moisturizing and softening for skin and hair.

There is rosemary, nettle, vinegar and lavender flower in the conditioner.

Cinders shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

This is the long awaited (if youre an OG Lushie) Cinders shower gel.

Many Lushies have been wsiting for a shower gel of Cinders since lush first introduced their Cinders bath bomb during holidays past.

The Cinders bath bomb (and later – uk forum perfume that i bought on the forum) has a base of orange oil and cinnamon leaf.

This shower gel however, adds some extra pumpkin pie spices that were not in the original. Alspice, nutmeg, clove, and pumpkin puree!

So itslike a combination of orange and pumpkin pie. Quite different.

Im surprised this isnt called a shower cream since it has extra moisturizing properties like almond oil and pumpkin seed oil.

I like the orange color for Fall. And i like that Lush added the obligatory American spice mix.

The consistency is a nice medium-thick.

The scent doesnt partcularly last on the skin.

I would drfinitely enjoy using the large bottle i have and the naked Cinders shower gel also, but i dont know that id care to buybanothrr bottle. Thsts why i rate Cinders shower gel a 4 out of 5 rating.

Here is a 7 minute close up sink demo i recorded of Cinders shower gel.

Sleepy shower gel

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

£19.95 520g (converted to $26.01)

this is a lighter purple, creamier version of previous years ‘Twilight’ shower gel.
Sleepy gel has added oat milk which helps to make it a more opaque appearance.

There is no sparkle in this shower gel.

it smells exactly like the Twilight i know and love. it has the same lavender oil, ylang ylang and tonka base.

Again this year lush has made a naked or solid containerless version of Sleepy shower gel.

i enjoy the different look to this shower gel.
oat milk helps soothe itchy raw or sore skin.

Sleep, drift to sleep,
Sweet tonka counts the sheep,
Lavender shakes the dreamland tree,
And from it fall sweet dreams for thee.

After a long day, relax into a soothing, softening wash of oat milk and carrageenan extract. If sleep eludes you, the sheep keep escaping or sweet dreams are feeling distant, shower with calming lavender flower infusion and lavender oil to ensure you sleep tight. Ylang ylang oil washes away worries and allows you to sink into bedtime, or start your day, with serenity.

Here is a short video i recorded close up sink demo of sleepy shower gel.

List of ingredients

Ectoplasm shower cream

5 out of 5 rating

I live that it glows in the dark. This has an addictive effervescent scent of grapefruit and tangerine. It smells like fizzy soda. Moreso than Bubble or Celebrate imo. Ectoplasm isnt as sweet as those.

It all started with the bath before mb of the same name. After lush introduced the bath bomb for the firdt time in 2017 it was a hit. And the bath oil TreeD was also a hit. We told Mark we loved the scent and hoped someday he would make a perfume out of it.

The next year they introdiced this shower cream, a naked version, a solid perfume and a washcard.

This has the same wonderfully citrussy scent as the Ectoplasm Bath bomb.

The solid or naked version glows in the dark.

I’ll review mine and demo both when i buy them at the creative showcase Sept 23.

Here is a demo video and review i recorded

Atmospheres shower gel

It’s unfortunate that this is a kind of pricey product because it’s exactly what lots of us have been asking lush for in terms of shower gels. Unlike those naked, solid shower gels, these ‘Atmospheres” shower gel spheres are a REAL shower gel consistency.  In fact its like a thicker, more luxurious shower gel.  It lathers loads and makes lots of sudsy foam lather.

There’s absolutely no packaging.

However because of it’s price I have to give this a 3 out of 5.

These are packageless shower gels, new and exclusive from the Lush Labs.

To me this is much easier to use than the naked shower gels that lush have made previously.

Lush says: Inside this nondescript, recycled box, powerful forces are at play. Four naked doses of therapeutic shower gel await, made with the finest perfumes to unlock your deepest desires. Shower yourself in love, money or joy – just remember to Let Go of the grudges, regrets or desires holding you back too.

Atmospheres are naked doses of shower gel that double up as a cosmic order of your choosing. Pinch the atmosphere between your fingers and tear open as you focus your mind on your goal, tipping the gel into your hand and washing all over. When you’re done lathering up, the seaweed layer can be washed down the plug or popped in the compost. The laws of attraction are at work so feel secure in the knowledge that your order has been placed.

These are fragile but not so fragile that you cant pick it up.

Lush says that its one showers worth of product but i can TOTALLY see how you can get two showers from this. There’s alot in here.

When done with the product we can safely let it go down the plug hole or throw it away because it’s biodegradeable.

In my video below i show how to pop it and what the consistency is.

However, the price is rather high to me.  It’s 12.00 gpb for four shower gels.  That’s $15.40 US dollars.

$4.50 gpb (or $3.75) for one shower.  Granted, I believe there are two showers worth in each one, but that’s still $2.25 per shower.

While I usually don’t count pennies, this id stick out to me as quite high.

There are four kinds;

Money (green) lime and green notes

Joy (yellow) citrus

Let Go (blue) made with lavender

Love (red) has the Lush Love fragrance, made with rose, and lemongrass.
