North Polar Bear Left the Tap On

4 out of 5 rating

2018

This is a gorgeous new soap for Christmas made in the Lush ‘Sex Bomb’ scent. The scent is made with jasmine, rose, clary sage, synthetic musk. this soap adds lingonberry to the mix however.

I took some video footage of it at the creative showcase

Lush gas made many products with this same scent. I took a photo below of them all, except one is missing. Anyway this is a floral scent. If you like flowers and other floral scents you would like this NPBLTTO soap.

One thing that i like about it is that the sexy scent stays on the skin even after rinsing, drying off. Hours later i get a slight whiff of it’s sexy perfume.

Its not sweet, its smells mostly like rose and clary sage to my nose, but each persons nose can pick out different notes as primary.

The scent was made to be sexy, and that it is.

I like that we can choose yellow or green. The large soap inthe shops looks aaesome, i took a photo of the North Polar Bear soap at the Lush Creative Showcase.

The product missing from my scent family photos below is ‘Sex n the Shower’ emotibomb.

Lush Description: My Dear Children,

It has been such a long time since I last wrote to you, I hope you are all doing well. Things at the North Pole have been a bit hectic again. We have had a few fairly peaceful years but I should have known that wouldn’t last. You remember my dear friend North Polar Bear and the mischief he would get up to? Well, he has gone and done something silly again. I’m getting too old for these things now.

I was taking a bath, usually it is North Polar Bear who takes baths but even I like them sometimes, as it had been a very busy and tiring week and my bones creak a little now you see and I find that the hot water helps immensely. I was soaking happily (my favourite soap is made with jasmine absolute and ylang ylang oil as it makes me feel happy and even Father Christmas deserves some floral sometimes), when all of a sudden a roaring, rushing sound surrounded my house and the sky lit up like a bonfire! I leapt from the bath in a such a hurry that I splashed the lingonberry infused water all over the floor and dashed out of the bathroom, nearly forgetting my towel in my haste!

As I went outside, it looked like the sky had been set on fire with swirling colours of blue and green and yellow and red and I knew just what had happened. North Polar Bear had left the tap on for the Northern Lights and let two years out in one go! He says it was an accident but I think he just wanted to cause a bit of mischief for old times’ sake. It’s set to be another couple of dark Christmases for us here at the North Pole thanks to him, but the candlelight is quite charming and comfortable really so I don’t mind too much. I rather missed his antics.

I hope you are doing very well. Sending my love to you all.
Yours always, Father Nicholas Christmas

Strawberry Santa

5 out of 5 rating

This wonderful holiday limited edition soap for 2018 has the scent of ‘Yummy yummy yummy’ shower gel and ‘Peeping Santa’ bubble bar.

This is one of those soaps that is almost too cute to use.

That cocoa butter cream in the middle looks delicous.

I was wondering how it’s shape would be condusive to washing. However it was just a matter of holding it in more of a cupping fashion.

The scent is surprisingly and pkeasantly strong. Thank goodness.

It really is a more moisturizing soap because of the conditioning cocoa butter in the soap.

Its made with fresh strawberries, geranium, and frankincense. This gives it a fruity, sweet, but equally floral and resinous scent.

The combination is addictive.

I have used every Lush Yummy yummy yumky scented product that Lush has made in the past and this soap does not dissappoint.

Its not as sweet as say the ‘snow fairy’ soap but almost. Its one of the sweetest soaps this holiday.

This is a soap that smells so good, works so well at moisturizing, is cute, that i would have to buy 3-5 of these.

Here is a review i recorded of this soap

Description: The weather outside may be frightful but Christmas showers have never been so delightful. What better way to finish off a great feast than with a creamy dessert, sandwiched between a cocktail of fresh strawberry juice and uplifting bergamot oil. Not to be mistaken for food, take this soapy little fellow and lather up under sweet suds of calming olibanum oil and conditioning peach kernel oil. Santa’s wearing a new suit this year, it’s strawberry sweet and totally unique. Hold him upright in your hand and massage into your palm to build up a lather that Father Christmas would be proud of.

Gingerbread Man sparkle jar

5 out of 5 rating.

This smells so spicy and amazing. Its not the floral lush ginger fragranc, thank goodness, No this Gingerbread man sparkle jar has a real holiday gingerbread goodness scent.

This is another knock out wonderful product from Lush for Christmas.
i love the two products in one concept of the Lush ‘sparkle jars’.
what they are are little gorgeous containets made out of solid massage jar mixture and inside of it is dusting powder in the same fragrance!

Lush description The secret to soft skin? Okay, I’ll tell you. Do you know the muffin man?
The muffin man?
The muffin man.
Yes, I know the muffin man, who lives on Drury Lane?
Well, when you’re feeling in need of an extra festive treat, poke holes into this Gingerbread Man’s buttons and dust yourself all over to leave skin feeling silky and smooth. After the dusting powder is all used up, the Fair Trade organic cocoa butter pot can be massaged in, to moisturise and soften while clove bud and ginger oils keep you feeling warm, cosy and smelling of Christmas baking.

Here is a review and demo of how to use it.

Yog Nog Yule Log

5 out of 5 rating

This has such a rich, lucious scent of vanilla and rich yumminess. Yog Nog is a great dessert-like Christmas scent. Its got lots of vanilla, ylang ylang, tonka. Its sweet, but not cloyingly so. Imagine Lush Butterball but with some clove and nutmeg and carmel notes thrown in, along with even more of an array of wonderful, skin softening ingredients.

This is quite possibly the best Lush bath product ive ever had the pleasure of using.

Im pretty sure having a romantic relationship with food…or bath products that look like food…is weird.

I love this bar so much. I wish i could hug it.

Thank you Lush for having a stroke of genius.

I’m not ashamed to say that saved a fair sized chunk of this bubble bar to rub on my arms legs and face.

Yes, i know we’re not supposed to use a bubble bar this way. I just couldnt help it, its THAT good.

Rest assured though-it was worth it.

The water is so moisturizing with this bubble bar that it’s harder to get quite the ‘loft’ of bubbles like the usual lush bubble bars bring. The extra decadence is worth the loss of bubbles trust me.

I would rate this one of those rare products that is above a 5 out of 5 rating.

I would say this has the potential for being a classic, like Snowcake or Luxury Lush Pud.

*Stares at any potential readers from Lush Inc in a pleading way*

I will definitely buy 5-10 of these.

Here is my 3 minute tub demo video below.

Royalty

4 out of 5 rating

This is a Lush Cosmetics bath bomb made exclusively for the New Lush Japan Naked ship opening at the beginning of the new year.

Jack Constantine was kind enough to give me one of each of the six exclusive bath bombs. However i had already bought two when i was at the showcase. So i have one left for a Giveaway!

Royalty bath bomb is made with jasmine and vanilla. the lush person at the Creative Showcase told me there was also sandalwood in it.

A Gold Crown. What’s not to like?

The scent of Royalty reminds me of The Lush ‘Vanillary’ scent except this adds sandalwood.

See my tub demo of Royalty that i recorded below.

I don’t know if they add condoning things in this bath bomb but it definitely seems to be more conditioning than most lush bath bombs. The water almost becomes milky.

There is a beautiful gold shimmer in the water. Not too much though.

Candy Cane

3 out of 5 rating

£3.95 (converted to $5.13)

I like this new Candy Cane reusable bubble bar. For a reusable bubble bar its nice. Its harder for me to like the reusable kind for whatever reason. I guess its the softer texture i like. But like i said i make an exception for this one because of the way it looks. A perfect candy cane. Spot on. You can even hang it on the tree as an ornament.

Makes a cute stocking stuffer for Christmas.

I like the surprising fruity scent. Lush says its a new scent. The ingredients say its made with l lemon and bergamot.

For whstever reason i smell cherries, and im not complaining. I like this smell.

The color of the water is kind of a peach color.

This makes lots of bubbles! And as you can see from my video i had an entire bar left! More than enough for a second bath! Possibly a third.

While i like this i might buy one other but Im not sure what im looking for as far as bumping this to a higher rating. I guess because i like the bath bombs more than the bubble bars, and i like the reusables even less. Like i say its a 3 rating so that means i would indeed recommend it, its just not high up on the list of lush Christmas 2018 products. There are plenty of products for Christmas this year from Lush that i like more.

If it was not reusable but had the same shape, and had white and red sparkles on it and had mint along with the cherry, that would bump it up to a 4 or 5.

Here is a 2 minute tub demo i recorded for you of the Candy Cane reusable bubble bar.

Lush description: What’s red and white and can be used over and over? A decoration for the tree or a cheeky stocking filler, the possibilities are endless when you take a trip down candy lane. Hang out with this double stripe of bergamot and Sicilian lemon oils to lift the mood and create a fruity fresh fragrance that will have you bathing time and time again. Hold under the running water to froth up mounds of fluffy bubbles before placing on the side to dry, ready for your next trip to candyland.
