Banana Skin facial oil

5 out of 5 rating. See my 3 minute demo video of this facial oil below.

This is a solid facial oil. Lush has introduced four kinds. Some of you might be famiar with the popular 7 step korean skin care method. I follow the korean beauty trend. I also have been using the facial oils from the U.S. brand Sunday Riley. I love what facial oils do for my face.

So i was excited that Lush had created their own facial oils. And Lush went a step further by making their facial oils packageless, and solid.

I got all of them from the Lush 2018 creative showcase in Manchester England.

I wanted to try this Banana Skin first to review for you, mostly because this one is what my skin needs. Its nourishing and moisturizing for drier skin.

Right off the bat i can feel the difference tapioca flour that Lush adds to their facial oils makes. It makes it more of a dry oil, which i Love. If theres one thing i hate its having greasy/oily stuff lingering too long on my skin.

The scent is like custard. Lush adds tonka bean to this blend. In face there are SO many good things in this bar.

Lush uses tincture of bananas, which is factory waste, in the banana skin facial oil.

Then Lush adds mango butter, fresh bananas, organic grapeseed oil, apricot kernel oil, Ambrett seed oil, murumuru butter, Illipe butter, cupuacu butter, jojoba oil and sandalwood oil.

I love how it feels and how it works. I live that it sinks into my skin so fast. I can use a lot of this and my face will never get greasy.

I would say this performs as well as my sunday riley facial oils and my korean brands.

My skin looks great!

Aubergine

5 out of 5 star rating.

See my 2 minute Tub Demo Video below 🙂

 

Aubergine is what the people in the Uk call Eggplant. it’s an eggplant shaped bath bomb…for Valentine’s 2019.

It’s made in the Lush signature ’29 High Street’ perfume fragrance.

Lush sells an exclusive perfume that is made to smell like a lush store. it has that Lush smell.

Pia, the lovely person who created the original scent (called HQ) explained to me how she created the scent, and what lush store product scents were used to create the fragrance. Karma, Honey i washed the kids, happy hippy, etc.

The result is a sweet, orange citrus with a floral background. it’s strong, heady and perfume-y. The fragrance has lots of expensive ingredients.

it does indeed smell just like a Lush shop.

This bath bomb produces a slow foaming fizz, with hues of purple, green, pink and blue. And a drop dead gorgeous hue of deep, jewel toned purple, with purple shimmer throughout.

Here is my 2 minute Tub Demo Video

 

I’m glad i got six.

Yuzu and Cocoa bath bomb

3.5 out of 5 rating. See my 1 minute tub demo below

Lush has opened up a new store in the Harajuku area of Japan. At this new, special store Lush will sell 35-50 exclusive bath bombs. One of these exclusive Japan Harajuku store bombs is this Yuzu and Cocoa.

The scent is supposed to smell like Yuzu which is a asian citrus fruit. And they add powdered cocoa to the mix.

Lush used to sell in store a Yuzu and Cocoa shower cream and a Yuzu and Cocoa bubble bar. Lush also made an exclusive perfume and sold it at lush.co.uk once

This does have glitter. It has something in it that seems to be somewhat conditioning to my skin also.

The scent is nice and strong.

When i compare it to the other exclusive bath bombs it isnt one of my favorites. But it is good.

if you like all things in this scent i would recommend it.

Lush will open its third all naked shop in Japan in mid 2019.

Lush introduced the products that will be made for this store at their annual Creative Showcase.

I was fortunate enough to attend the annual Lush Cosmetics Creative Showcase this year, 2018.

While there i was lucky enough to be able to buy the following exclusive prodicts, and included are a couple of exclusive products which were given to me by the creators at the showcase.

Amongst my favorite products are the six bath bombs that were on display at the showcase. Once a day (the showcase was a two day event) a magical van would open up in an explosion of smoke! And out would pop a group of Lush staff dressed up and leading songs about the bath bomb that would be demonstrated before those of us in the crowded line. Then they would announce that the bombs would be sold to those of us in line, one per person, until they sold out.

I was able to get multiple of each because my husband bought a ticket to the event too and was with me in line. He bought one too and gave his to me. Additionally, we had tickets for both days, so the next day we waited in line again and bought one each again.

Then as we were leaving, i got a call saying the owners of Lush wanted to thank me for what ive done for them throughout the years by giving me a bag with some goodies which included one each of these six exclusive bath bombs.

I couldnt believe it! So this is why i have multiples and have been doing giveaways with them.

So i have taken photos and videos of all of them for you.

Giant Bombshells – Fruit, Floral,Seaweed

While roaming around the creative showcase my husband and I happened upon an area that was beautifully arranged with fresh flowers and other goodies.  It looked like a garden in the middle of everything at the Creative showcase.

Upon poking further-a kind woman demonstrated these to me, explaining the concept of the fresh, ‘pick your own’ fillings.  They had four kinds and colors of giant ‘bombshells’ there.

The only one I don’t know the name of and don’t have it in any of my video of the creative showcase nor in any of my photos at the event.

These hollowed out bath bombs are twice the size of the regular sized Lush bath bomb.

The fillings coincided with each of the four bombshells; blue=Floral, yellow and orange=fruit, aqua green=seaweed, and like I said I don’t know what the pink ones are.  The pink one is the only one that I didn’t fill with anything.

 

These fragile beauties traveled 2,500 miles from England to the United States, in my carry on bag.  My husband wrapped them so wonderfully that all but one survived perfectly intact,  and even survived a groping by the customs agents at the airport because they were searching them for drugs or explosives. I’m not even kidding.

It was explained to me that the fruits, flowers, plant material, etc were all grown organically by Lush partners for this purpose. Certainly practicing fair trade and cruelty free products in cooperating with farmers  around the world.

My favorite is the blue floral bombshell.  Like the fruit bombshell, the blue floral one has two shades, in this case blue shades.  And treble one has a small sprinkling of glitter.

Thus far I’ve only bathed and demoed one, the fruit bombshell.  I’ll post my photos and demo video of each of the the bombshells as I use them.  I will keep updating this page as I use each of the other three.

 

Hulder

5 out of 5 rating.
Hulder is a scandinavian mythological creature. Its akin to a siren or a mermaid. It’s part animal part human.

check out my tub demo below of this glittery gorgeous bomb.

This is an exclusive bath bomb shown at the Lush uk Creative Showcase event in England September 23 & 24.

I took some video footage of hulder at the Lush showcase for you. I also recorded a tub demo video for you, And i also took photos of mine in the tub.

Lush also sold iron on patches of the exclusive bombs at the showcase event.

We were able to buy one only once per day and only for one hour when the magic bus opened. But first-One had to see the secret count down signs that were placed throughout the event to let us know when and where. It was a fun game.

Eventually these six exclusive bath bombs will only be sold in Lush Japan’s first all ‘naked’ Lush store, which is slated to open in 2019.

Hulder is my favorite of the six bombs bevause of the way it looks and the way it smells.

The scent is very different, in a good way. It smells floral and earthy with a big of greenery. Absolutely gorgeous. It smells both pretty and mysterious.

I didnt want to get out of the tub.

The bomb shows green and purple as it fizzes. Green and purple are my favorite color combination. My hair is dyed green and purple.

Im so so grateful that Jack Constantine gave me a random act of kindness.

On Instagram some lushies who like to do makeup looks have been creating makeup looks to match lush halloween products. So, since my daughter loves makeup, i had my daughter do a look for Hulder. 🙂

Here is my tub demo

Candy Mountain Yule Log

4 out of 5 rating

Yeah, this isnt Snow Fairy scented firstly. Just wanted to get that out of the way.

This is Creamy Candy scented. Lush makes a bubble bar year round called ‘Creamy Candy’ in stores. Well every Christmas Lush makes a christmas themed Creamy Candy bubble bar and calls it ‘Candy Mountain.

Historically its looked kind of like a unicorn horn shape.

This year however, Lush has re-designed their Christmas Candy Mountain. It looks quite different. It has more of a laser cut mountain design. I like it, its more refined than past years Candy Mountain.

The reason people confuse this with snow fairy is because the two scents creamy candy and snow fairy/candy fluff are similar, but yhey are different and made with different scent ingredients such as synthetic musk and vanilla in varying degrees. Snow Fairy/Candy Fluff adds clove bud leaf.

This Candy Mountain has extra skin conditioning ingredients in it, moreso than other Lush bubble bars.

I recorded a 1 minute tub demo of it for you below

Royalty

5 out of 5 rating. See my Tub Demo video of it that I recorded for you below

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!

Here’s a Bathtub Demo of it that I recorded for you

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.

Snowman Bomb Bomb

4 out of 5 rating

Dont look now but Lush has actually made a minty bath product.

This doesnt happen very often.

This two piece Snowman Bomb bomb is two baths worth if you want to use each of the two pieces for one bath, or you can use both pieces in one go!

It’s made with spearmint in particular. I was wary of this bomb because Sometimes mint can irritate my skin or make it red. I needn’t have worried though becaise i experienced nothing but loveliness, no irritation.

Its not got any eucalyptus in it like Outback mate or christingle.

Its a fast fizzer, fizzes away very quickly but its a big bomb so it takes a little while. I ised both pieces for my bath and this demo.

I like this. I would buy another one.

See my tub demo video below

Sleepy toothy tabs

I stumbled upon these Sleepy toothy tabs along side the tooth fairy (Snow Fairy) toothy tabs and other toothy tabs on display at the 2018 Lush Creative Showcase.

I was told by the creator of these new toothy tabs that they are still working on the formula for flavoring in the sleepy tabs because a direct translation of the sleepy/twilight scent isnt as tasty, so tweaking the lavender so it didnt taste too soapy by adding more vanilla along with the lavender and other components to produce a nice scent and a nice taste. i thought both the sleepy and the tooth fairy were AWESOME!

Not Sleepy shower bomb

I give this a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is one of the #LushLabs exclusive, limited edition shower bombs. Not to be confused with the Lush Labs new ‘Atmospheres’ shower gels

This is not to be confused with a Lush shower emotibomb, which is placed on the shower floor.

No, these shower bombs are for washing with.

I do a wet demo of it here in the 56 second video sink demo below.

Lush Labs at lush.co.uk has made four difderent kinds/scents of these new shower bombs; sleepy, not sleepy, karma, and kowataskaati.

This one, not sleepy, is for waking up. Its got lemon, lime and orange oils in it which are said to promote alertness and mental clarity.

After asking what the scent wax i was told that Its a new scent that Mark Constantine made for this shower bomb.

The product is not cocoa butter based. It feels like a bath bomb. Maybe a firmer kind of bath bomb.

This will definitely last more than one shower.

The scent isn’t weak but its not very strong eithet.

The foam feels very nice. If you have sensitive skin just get some foam on your hands first, then apply to your body.

It rinsrs off very easily.

Then just towel yourself dry and thats it.

Its not gimmick-y, this seems to actually work with just adding water.

And its totally packageless.

Under the Umbrella Tree

I would rate this bath bomb a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a cute bath bomb.   I love the tree shape of it.

This was made with the Lush “Breath of God’ fragrance.

The fragrance is a combination of two Lush scents “Inhale’ and ‘Exhale’.

There are masculine notes such as cedar wood, sandalwood,, and feminine notes such as rose. Together they form the classic Breath of God fragrance, which Lush has sold since 2008. Men would like it but women would like it too It’s both earthy and airy in the same fragrance.

Lush has made a bath bomb In the past called “Inhale Exhale‘ with a similar fragrance.

The bath bomb is a fast fizzes and makes a beautiful, not often seen, lime green water.  So uplifting and hopeful, like Spring.
