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

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.

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

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. 

Gumback smoothie

See my video demonstration of this smoothie at the bottom of the page

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Apricot Oil (Prunus armeniaca), Sodium Palm Kernelate, Ground Almond Shells (Prunus dulcis), Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Fresh Banana (Musa paradisiaca), Labdanum Resinoid (Cistus labdanum), Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium EDTA, Perfume, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

This is a very scrubby . I think it smells like bananas and swimming pools (chlorine).

LT 2004 description: We did have a Gumbo Express Smoothie exfoliating shower soap for a while and when we discontinued it its fans were vociferous in their complaints (but there weren’t quite enough of them buying it for us to continue making it). Instead we went off, did some work and introduced the Gumback Express, another splendid, exfoliating shower soap, this time with bananas, labdanum essential oil to tone the skin, almond and apricot oils to moisturize you and ground almond shells, our environmentally friendly exfoliator, to scrub you smooth. We like it even better than the original.

Scent Family: Banana Moon Soap; Big Banana Moon Soap; A Little Monkey Bubble Bar Slice; Gumbo Express Smoothie.

Here’s a demo video i made of this smoothie

Turkish Delight

Lush has made a black pot version which is literally one of my favorite things that Lush makes.

The potted version (it’s basically a smoothie) is one of the wonderful things that Lush made before they were called Lush, when they were Cosmetics To Go. I still have the empty, cleaned out glass container.

The vintage glass container is inside the gift box on the left side with the yellow label on top.

Lush made this Turkish Rose body polish in their ‘Keep It Fluffy’ scent, which as many know if one of my favorite scents.

ylang ylang, rose, lemongrass and jasmine.

Another of their new rhoulades, this one has the scrummy scent of turkish delight, with that beautiful rose fragrance.  It looks like turkish rose candy too.

this different version below was a container-less version called a thousands that Lush made at their Oxford Street superstore.

I liked the black pot version Much more. So much easier to use.
