This is a new soap that will be coming out for Valentines 2022.
I love the Lush Valentines soaps quite a bit. I’ve been buying Lush Valentines soaps every year since 2001. For the past few years Lush has reference to a Rose on their Valentines soap. This one is beautiful with a pink color and a rose carving on top in a different shade of pink. I can’t wait to see the whole extra large store display soap of this. i’ll take pics of that when i do. i plan on buying one as soon as they come out, and will take more pics and make a vid of it at the sink for you.
This soap was made with the Lush ‘Softy’ scent. It’s a beautiful light rose, orange, and ylang ylang scent. It’s a soft powdery rose with little bits of rose petals in it.
2001 Yuletide LT description: One of the best things to turn up on Lush’s doorstep in 2001 was Noriko from our Japanese factory with her boundless enthusiasm for creating new Lush products. She will be absolutely delighted and hugely embarrassed to find that her massive fruity soap, decorated with jellies (which she calls “jerries”) has been named after her. If you like your soap smooth, creamy, and bursting with flowers then for this one with its delicious scents of far eastern ylang ylang and calming lavender all mixed in with rice, organic tofu (soya bean curd), and sake, Japanese wine.
LT 2004 description: This handmade soap has coloured seaweed jellies on top, and the scent of orange, ylang ylang, lavender and rose. We relished the softening feeling on our skin of Noriko’s uniquely Japanese mix: rice, sake, tofu and agar seaweed.
2001 Review: The large truckle of the instore Noriko soap had “jellies” on the top of various colors. This is such a fresh and feminine scent. It reminds me of walking in a garden area of greenery and flowers, right after it rains. Noriko seems to be one of two soaps that lather more than all the other Lush soaps. The other being Milko in my opinion. You have to have this fresh because it’s a delicate scent.
Orange, Lavender, ylang ylang and rose makes this soap smell just like the “Softy” ballistic but more subtle and not rose.
2004 Review: It’s less fresh rain and more floral then the original. Lovely. Again, this needs to be tried fresh because it’s a light rain-like scent, otherwise it won’t smell like anything but soap. Other Lush products in this scent; Christmas Softy bath bomb, Hedgehog bubble bar, Powder Puff deo, Eyeball bath bomb, Valentines 2022 Rose soap.
Yummy. A highly underrated soap as far as conversations amongst Lushies. For a long time this was my favorite soap. I first bought some in my second Lush order a long time ago. And i like it just as much today 20 years later. It smells very different. Feminine and floral but lightly so, fruity from the figs and full of fig seeds. This could be good if your exfoliating or bad if you don’t like bits. Nice creamy lather. That scent though, its the perfect combination of sweet and floral.
LT 2004 Description: Figs and Leaves is a lovely, coffee brown, creamy soap scented with ylang ylang and orange blossom perfumes. Ylang ylang is one of the oils that helps to balance the skin’s oil production; orange blossom absolute is excellent for keeping the skin in good condition. The little specks in Figs and Leaves are the fig seeds from the decoction of nutritious, fresh, organic figs that form the base of this soap. Rub this all over your body to gently exfoliate your skin, make it feel smooth and smell luxuriously of figs and flowers (not leaves)…..
As in Fairy Godmother 😊This was originally made in 2008 and discontinued around 2011 i think. Its up for the vote for the September 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box. The previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen remade this in 2015.
Its made with the sweet and spicy scent of Candy Fluff/Melting Marshmallow Moments.
Lush 2008 description:,Despite our Ballistics, skincare, haircare and all other wonderful things for our baths showers and bodies, people tend to call Lush “That soap shop”. This is fair, because we do make exceedingly good soaps. We looked into this (technically Pia looked into it and we were all very interested) and found that 68% of people in the UK wash their hands with washing up liquid. Thats just not right. Its not good for your hands. Stop it! Mo, our soap supreme, has made this special soap (scented with our best selling Candy Fluff scent) for keeping by the kitchen sink. Think of it as your fairy godmother for the hands.
I like the scent of this soap. The first thing I did was to get the package and before I opened it I could smell the Candy Fluff scent that I love. It’s a fruity, pink, with purole sparkkes and a sweet pink, effervescent smelling fragrance. If you like the Candy Fluff powder, or Marshmellow Melting Moments bath melt you will love this soap.
It’s such a gorgeous color of dark rose pink. The Godmother is not exceptionally drying to my hands nor is it moisturizing , but somewhere in the middle. I was surprised at how low lathering this soap was. The scent stays on my hands for a goodly while. I did notice that the Godmother lather was minimwl. The Godmother didn’t leave my hands dry.
This was the whole huge truckke of soap in the stores that tgey woukd cut pieces off of for selling.
@lush North Pole soap Made for one or two years as a limited edition Christmas soap in stores around 2009-2011 and on line.
It’s up for the vote in the July 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

The pink part is fragranced with a chocolately or cocoa, candyish fragrance, the white with a refreshing woody, minty fragrance.
I’ve added the second photo of the store version of it. In the stores it was a 6 inch wide x 2 feet pole. you could pick any piece you wanted; a huge round white slice or a huge pink slice or a piece with both pink and white. The store pieces were round, and the online or kitchen version rectangle.
It also came as a slice of the white part with a thinner pink part on top if you bought it online. The pink part smells a bit like a Peppermint Crisp bar, whilst the white part smells more like a mint flavoured rock candy. The original soap was a 6″ (or thereabouts) diameter pole shape that alternated between two Pink and two White sections.
Lush Times: How else will Santa find his way to Lush without a North Pole soap to guide his way?! This is for everybody who love to wash with soap (and frankly, who doesn’t?) This soap is fabulous for people who like stimulating, refreshing showers – with just a hint of luxurious indulgent sweetness. One slice is never enough – so buy two! The pink is fragranced with a chocolately chewy fragrance, the white with a refreshing woody, minty fragrance.
You have to get a good fresh piece to appreciate this. It’s creamy, banana-y and nice. It should smell like banana runts even though it is a natural, not fake, smell. It’s also a gentle soap.
2006 LT description: One of the things that irritates us just slightly is when we’re not having a good day is that it’s perfectly legal to call something banana soap when it doesn’t have any bananas in it, but merely a dab of synthetic banana fragrance. Our banana soap has lots of fresh bananas in it; we mash them up, mix them with yoghurt, soap flakes and essential oils and make a truly bananafied, moisturizing soap that smells of bananas because it’s full of them.
Lush Gumback Express shower smoothie, A Little Monkey bubble bar, and Banana Moon soap. All made in the same scent family.
Gumback Express was discontinued in the mid 2000’s and so was Banana Moon. I didn’t think Gumback Smootie smelled like bananas, but i did think the Banana moon did and Little Monkey did too. The soap was great for people with dry skin like me. Lush has made other banana product but they’re not in this scent family.
A lot of people were wondering if this soap was in the same scent family as the Lush ‘The Carrot’ scent.
No it isn’t. This has no buchu oil which was a primary scent in the carrot. Also the soap has orange oil whereas the Carrot scent family does not.
To me this smells like an earthier smelling version of a chocolate dipped orange.
Using a soap with thad soul mud in it is always a nice experience. Spas use certain muds to tone skin, help remove impurities and it’s not drying on the skin. Lush has made a couple of other soaps in the past with thad soul mud.
As you’ll see in the video it lathers up nicely and rinses away clean.
This is a lovely gentle soap for sensitive skin, older skin or even dry skin. The ingredients are about as close as a bouquet of roses as you can get. The real and fresh rose scent is very nice. Leaves my skin soft and non-irritated.
Summer 2000 Lush Times description: Queen of Hearts is a soft, creamy complexion soap which we make for all of you who should know better than to wash your face with soap but just won’t stop doing it. At least if you’ll use this one then you won’t be drying out your skin too badly because the glycerine, almond oil and cocoa butter we put in it (not to mention lashings of skin-friendly essential oils) will stop you stripping away all your face’s natural oils. We make it with roses so you smell lovely too.
Below is the 2020 Polar Bear soap. The 2021 Polar Bear soap soap will not be the same minty coco nutty yummy scent as last year, it will be Snow cake scented this year. it’s good to see snowcake soap again.
This isn’t the same scent as this Christmas ’PolarBear Plunge’ bubble bar. This one has almond and rose.
When i buy my Christmas products and they’re delivered- i’ll write my reviews, post my tub bath water photos and video demo here for you. 😊
It’s so cute. It didn’t dry out my skin like some Lush soaps can. It must be the addition of cocoa butter in this soap. along with the coconut oil. It feels good.
Review: QofN was the sort of precursor to the present ‘I Should Coco” soap by Lush. The difference is that this doesn’t have the scratchy, exfoliating dessicated coconut. This is a creamy soap that smells more of Lushious coconut than I Should Coco soap in my opinion. I’m not cazy about coconut, there are times when I hate coconut. So I’m picky about coconut scented products. But this Quinquireme of Ninevah soap adds oranfe which makes it more complex and lovely. is one I do indeed like to use. Not bad, being that it’s a coconut soap. I would think the majority of people would find this to be a 4 star soap.
Lush Times description: Q of N is a creamy, smooth cocnut scented soap made in 35 kg block with two rope handles so it can be carried with dignity to its destination within Lush shops. Inspired by the poem by John Masefield, in which he describes the Quinquereme’s cargo of precious oils and spices. Some of which we used in the soap’s coconut based perfume. We’ll cut you a 100 g slice from one of these precious cargoes to bring a hint of the exotic Middle East of times gone by to your very own wash basin.
See my demo video of this soap in my 3 minute video below.
This limited edition soap was made so that net proceeds from the sale of this goes towards animal rescue efforts due to the Australian Bush fires.
The soap was made in the Outback Mate soap scent, which is made with eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass.
I had bought two and i.left my package in my room and my whole room smelled wonderful!
They had these available for one day on the Lush Uk, and Lush USA websites before they sold out. Lush usa decided to make more so they could sell them again before they sold out again in one day.
“We can only imagine the horror faced out in the Australian bush by those who are going out searching for animal survivors amongst the estimated billion creatures killed so far in the fires. In recognition of the overwhelming task faced by this informal Animal’s Emergency Service, we have made All The Wild Things soap. Net proceeds from this limited edition eucalyptus and lemongrass soap will go to animal rescue groups providing emergency first aid and rehabilitation as well as restoring the habitat where the wild things were. Grab one now online or visit your local Lush shop. Let the wild recovery start.”
This is a new soap for Christmas, and Lush made this soap in the popular ‘So White’ bath bomb scent. The scent is made with orange flower and smells just like a tart green apple! The fragrance actually makes my mouth water.
Its green with silver snow covering it, and it has a leaf on it just like a fresh picked apple. Its not conditioning. The scent is nice and strong and leaves a marvelous fresh scent of crisp apples on my skin.
See my video showing and describing each soap in detail. I forgot Satsuma and Golden Pear which i have already reviewed here on my blog on their seperate pages. Both of those have a 5 out of 5 star rating.
3.5/4.0 out of 5 rating. See my sink demo and review video below.
Lush introduced this and other soaps online on their up site first and today this Good Day Sunshine and also Michelle Ma Belle soap are available in the U.S.
“Carved like an engraved offering to a Mayan Sun God, this vibrantly bright and beaming citrus-scented soap presents a thick crown of golden yellow bath bomb mix, which when used for the first time kisses your skin with fizzing foam, welcomed like warm rays on a summer’s day. The dazzling orange, vegan aquafaba base offers notes of sparkling lemon myrtle, zesty lime and uplifting neroli to flip your mood sunny side up, while exfoliating chia seeds offer a delicate polish that leaves skin feeling soft and bright enough to rival the sun. “
It doesn’t foam up as it says on the website. Lush has added bath bomb mixture to the soap so that it produces a nice shower bomb type of foam, but I couldn’t get either soap to foam up when I used them at the sink nor in the shower.
Regardless, I like using the soap.
It’s got the same scent as the ‘Brightside” bubble bar.
3.5/4.0 out of 5 rating. See my sink demo video below.
Lush introduced this and one other soap (Good Day Sunshine) first in the uk, on their website, which is where I got mine. These two soaps along with four others were introduced first at the Lush Liverpool spa megastore, along with 350 other new products.
Today it’s available in the U.S..
Lush made this in the popular Christmas yog nog scent. I guess they decided to make the yog nog soap in a different look and make it permanent.
“Engraved like an Aztec monolith hidden deep within the jungle, this decadently creamy gold bar reveals a new world of soap for you to explore. An iridescent layer of shimmering shower bomb is pressed into the embedded labyrinth design, like sand covering a long-lost clue. But don’t blow it away like dust on an old map, instead revel in its fizz and rich, thick foam as you turn it this way and that under the warm running water, revealing the secret of its carved pathways. A treasure trove of rich aromas lies in store; spiced vanilla, butterscotch, dolcelatte. Gold clay merges with chunks of white Amazonian clay, filled with minerals and nutrients of the rainforest’s fallen fruits and leaves, together they cleanse and gently exfoliate, leaving the skin soft and revived. Digging a little deeper, other marvels emerge; castor oil, cocoa butter and coconut oil for a creamy lather that is sure to leave your hands, and everywhere else, with the Midas touch.”
I wonder why. Does this mean we won’t be getting yog nog soap for Christmas?
Regardless it’s a nice soap. I must say however that the bath bomb stuff they decided to add to the soap mixture doesn’t foam up as their description says. I demo’d two different pieces on my video below and neither of them ‘foamed up’.
The feel of the soap is very nice. I enjoyed washing with it in the shower.
