Very Very Frightening

4 out of 5 rating

The name comes from the song by Queen called ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

The scent is a cross between citrussy (grapefruit) and berry-like (Black Currant).

Ingredients: Perfume, Grapefruit Oil, Bergamot Oil, Almond Essential Oil, Black Currant, White Sugar Crystals, Titanium Dioxide, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Silica, *Limonene, *Linalool,

This has the same scent as the three below Lush products: Space Girl bath bomb, Goth Fairy Sparkly massage bar, Stargazer bubble bar.

This Halloween shower gel is made with the Lush ‘Space Girl’ bath bomb scent. It’s fruity. Like a cross between citrus fruits and berryish fruits.

My 19 year old daughter thinks it smells like ‘Skittles’ candy. 😊

It’s a thin consistency but i can let that slide since it’s such a fun shower gel. 👍🏼

You’ll love this if you like:

– Zingy sherbet citrus scents with a warm hint of almond.

– The Comforter bath bomb, Plum Rain shower gel or Argan Dragon shower oil.

Benefits:

– Grapefruit oil adds a fresh and fruity hit of uplifting fragrance, sure to boost your mood into the cosmos.

– A member of the citrus family, bergamot oil adds a cheery ray of sunshine to invigorate and enliven your bathing experience.

– Almond essential oil gives a touch of warm, sweet comfort.

Lush Christmas 2020

Here is my Lush Christmas 2020 Haul video with descriptions, ratings, etc.

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 as i do every Christmas. 😊

For those of you who were here last Christmas-This Holiday we have approximately 21 Christmas products returning from Christmas 2019. For those of you who are celebrating your first Christmas buying Lush all of these below may be new to you. 😊

Oh before i go further, As always, Lush Uk will be releasing their Advent Calender with 24 products in it. some will be retro Christmas products, some, around 6 will be new Christmas products. They will take orders on August 27 and will deliver in November. It’s £185.00 which translates to $243.00. i’m not buying it this year because i literally have everything in it except four new products and i’m not paying 243.00 just to get four Christmas products early.

Anyway there are approximately 14 New products coming out this Christmas.

There is one new limited edition soap, one new limited edition shower scrub one new LE shower gel, four new LE bath bombs and one new LE bubble bar.

One of the new products is called a body milk. There will be Yog Nog, Sakura, and Celebrate which is only available exclusively in a Christmas gift set. Basically it’s a lotion. I have a couple of exclusive body milks and the consistency is like lotion. I added a pic of the body milks that i have at the bottom of this page including a vid showing it’s consistency. The main difference is the primary ingredients is aloe vera gel.

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

Pokey stick of doom thickness test: http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y181/l … ystick.jpg

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.

Slammer

3.5 out of 5 rating

lemon Peel Decoction (Citrus limetta), Fresh Scottish Sea Water, Fresh Lime Juice, Honey (Mel), Lime Oil, Rock Salt, Litsea Cubeba Oil, Lemon Oil, Perfume.

Review: I think the lemon in this smells too strong to me. I like Back for Breakfast shower gel more. Slammer is the best for waking up it’s said. Lush made this shower gel to be the same as their once loved “Slammer” ballistic. It’s a popular shower gel , some say the Slammer scent smells like a margarita. The guys would like this Slammer gel too as it’s a neutral scent. It’s got just the right amount of sweetness. Smells kind of like lime and lemon punch.

Lush 2005 Description: If Back For Breakfast is too soft for you then Slammer will be your shower gel of choice. It metamorphosed not long back from a Bath Ballistic to a shower gel because the kind of people likely to need a Slammer alarm call do not always have time for a bath in the morning. (Although it does a very good job as a bubble bath for those too tired to stand up.) You may notice, those of you who like the odd tequila cocktail, that our Slammer, with its fresh lime juice and rock salt, bears a certain resemblance to another sort of slammer. Those of you who are partial to the other sort of slammer in the evening will probably need a bottle of ours to get you through the morning.

Lush Discontinued 2020!

Here’s a video i made about this.

“When the word “discon” ripples around there’s always a sharp intake of breath as people wonder if their favourite will have its fate sealed. We all have our hero products and stories of heartbreak when something treasured has slipped out of production.

As we look towards a future, lockdown presented an opportunity for Mark Constantine to reflect on the present and try every product again and again to get a better understanding of what we are offering. Backed by The Secret Masterplan there were clear criteria:

  • Does it serve customer’s needs?
  • Is it number one in its category?
  • Is it part of a cosmetic revolution?

12 weeks, 116 days and a lot of 4pm baths later a clear idea was forming, and with review from Lush analysts, there is a list.

There are bound to be some disappointments but far many more opportunities as we make room to create things that are best in their class – fewer products, that give you better results. 

We have a dedicated team of product inventors bursting with ideas that will knock your socks off. For sneak peeks and all the BTS action of what’s to come (make sure you check out our inventor’s social media profiles) and check out #lushcommunity. “

It will take a while before these are all gone, but as always at Lush nothing is often gone forever. The newly launched Kitchen subscription box is not only a monthly delivery of retro favourites and some surprises, but also offers subscribers a chance to vote on the contents, so maybe your favourite will be back sooner than expected

Beauty Sleep

5 out of 5 rating. See my video below where i apply it and review it.

Mark Constantine, owner of Lush Uk wanted to have a little fun so he decided to work with Helen Ambrosen on a new face and body mask.

They made it by adding a teaspoon of gorgeous moisturizer and then they added the ingredients to ‘Sleepy’, Lavender, Yang ylang and Tonka.

when they finalized the product he announced that they will let us have a crack at naming the product. So people submitted they’re names and a handful of people chose ‘Beauty Sleep’ and this is the name that won.

it’s a perfect name. the mask smells amazing! if you know what the gorgeous moisturizer smells like you can imagine that plus sleepy.

instructions recommend slathering it on your face and your arms, neck, chest, back, stomach and then let it stay on your skin for 10-20 minutes while you’re in the tub or in the shower. Then after that time just rinse it off.

it’s got ground adult beans for exfoliating and it’s LOADED with many moisturizing ingredients.

it’s a beautiful pinkish lavender color.

“Aluxurious clay face mask, which includes a spoonful of our most decadent moisturiser, Gorgeous, for a boost of hydration. The perfect step in your evening skincare routine, to help you #getyourbeautysleep.

“The combination of lavender and neroli is even more soothing than I anticipated. I noticed a significant improvement in my stress level within minutes. Skin feels soft and smooth afterwards. – bethanyjoyhall

“From its lavender and neroli scent that calms the mind…to its freshly ground Aduki beans, fresh coconut, honey, kaolin, and talc which calm and soothe the skin-this face mask is a 10/10 for me! It left my skin feeling calm, moisturized, and toned all at once.” – LaredoLushies

For a limited time, enjoy a deluxe sample of our Gorgeous moisturiser with every purchase of Beauty Sleep face mask*

As part of this purchase, all customers will receive an email with exclusive access to our special mindfulness meditation led by Mindfulness practitioner, Rose Eskafi, free of charge, to calm the mind and help you soon drift off to sleep.

*While stocks last. Sample size is 7g.

How to use
Run a warm bath, put on some relaxing music and apply this beautiful face mask to clean skin. Sit back and relax. Inhale the neroli and let the valerian and lemon verbena get to work. Once you’re feeling relaxed and ready for bed, rinse away with warm water.

Lo and Behold when those of us who bought the Lush Kitchen subscription box from Lush Uk opened up our June boxes we found a surprise: a container of Beauty Sleep face and body mask. Yay!

List of ingredients

As far as Lush masks go i really like this one. it made my skin feel cleansed and moisturized and it smelled gorgeous. Using it before bed was a good idea since the ingredients in ‘Sleepy’ (twilight) are conducive to sleep.

Abombinaball shower jelly

5 out of 5 rating.

See my demo and desceiption video below.

Made as a surprise for inclusion in the May 2020 Lush Kitchen subscription box.

Its made in the same scent as the limited edition bath bomb of the same name.

Its scent is made with peppermint, vanilla and orange oil. Its a yummy, sweet vanilla mint.

This can be used whole on the body as soap in the shower or as i show in my video one can cut it up and use it in a kitchen seieve as a bubble bath.

Heres a video of it

The products to be voted on for inclusion in the July Lush Kitchen subscription box.


Coconut deo powder
Heavanilli massage bar
Creamed almond and coconut smoothie
Freeze shower gel
Melomint bubble bar
Yoga Bomb
Vanilla Puff Dusting Powder
Dreamwash Smoothie


Running to the Embassy body conditioner

Here’s my unboxing video

Heavanilli

5 out of 5 rating

Lush Times: Sweet delicious Vanilla Fountain fragrance – tonka bean, jasmine and heaps of vanilla absolute. At the time of writing, we’ve not had the chance to put this to a real live test; we’ve used it on our arms in the creative team meeting, sniffed it with enthusiasm and longing, but as yet, we haven’t been able to take them home with us, smooth them all over our lovers’ bodies to see what happens next. Heavanilly’s melty butters smell of sensual jasmine, vanilla and tonka – and cinder toffee – so we can guess.

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Fair Trade Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Perfume, Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata), Hydroxycitronellal, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 73360

I love this massage bar. Out of the 60 or so different Lush massage bars, Heavanilli is one of my favorites. Its made in the Lush ‘Vanillary’ perfume fragrance. Lush has made many products with this popular perfume scent.

I would recommend it. I enjoy using it and Its one that i would buy again and again.

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
