It has the scent of ylang ylang flower, patchouli, lemongrass and Ho wood. It smells like an expensive mens cologne or something. I love the scent.
Also, the scent has somestaying power after you use it which i like.
I Would give this a high rating because its really cute, it works well without drying my skin, it smells great and the scent lasts.
Its scent is from another product that Lush made before they called themselves Lush, when they were a company called Cosmetics To Go in the 90’s. The product was called ‘Damp Squid’ and it was a bath bomb.
I still have my old pictures of my Damp Squid bath bomb.
See my unboxing video at the bottom of this page 😊
I voted for these below. Normally i would vote for Berry Berry Christmas instead of bucks fizz, but i still have two bottles of berry berry that i bought from before. Thats the only reason i didnt vote for it.
This deliciously self-centred chocolate body wash is packed with aloe vera and glycerine to soften and hydrate delicate skin.
How to use:
Completely vegan friendly, this is a great body wash for dry skin. Scoop out a good handful and inhale the rich cocoa aroma while you work it all over your body then rinse off.
100% RECYCLED POT
Deliciously hydrating and softening. Thisis the best product Lush has created in quite awhile. This smells more like straight up chocolate than any of the other chocolate things that Lush has made. It does remind me of the scent of Lush Walter Bunny scrub.
I describe the texture in my video below but it feels like a chocolate mouse in thepot and feels like silk when you rub it on your body.
This is one of many products only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar gift set.
Lush Uk had a Sleepy pop up event in September October 2021 time frame. They had many exclusive Sleepy products not available in stores. This Sleepy bomb was one of them. Lush Uk decided to add it to the Christmas Advent Calendar gift set as an exclusive amongst all the other goodies in the calendar gift set.
See below for my 3 minute Tub Demo Video.
Sleepy bomb reminds me of the Lush Uk ‘Sleeping Giant’ bath bomb. I think Sleepy bomb is a miniature version of it.
This Sleepy bomb has such a gorgeous periwinkle blue color! 😍
Sleepy is a quiet, slow melting kind of bomb, not the fast fizzing type.
It looks like some kind of melting blackberry dessert doesn’t it? 😊
There’s a bit of very dark blue almost black color inside the bath bomb that’s surprising.
There are multiple colors in here, violet, lilac, black, gold. Lots of bath art opportunities 😄
The gold is actually shimmery stuff. And the gold shimmer gets dispersed in the purple water and it’s just beautiful.
I’d rate this a 5 out of 5 rating.
These aren’t like the Lush halloween 2021 products which glow under UV light. These are glow in the dark. Here is what the stars and moon look when you turn off the lights.
Some folks were asking me what these moon and stars are made out of. Many folks thought they were a bath melt as i did, but they are made out of what feels like plastic. They don’t melt.
This above is ‘Twilight’ bath bomb sold in Lush stores. The ‘Sleepy’ bomb is the same scent. Both made with floral Ylang Ylang , Sweet creamy Tonka bean, and Bright herbal Lavendar. I asked the creator Alessandro and he stated that ‘Yes. They are the same scent’, just different names. Not complaining. I’d love to use both of these in a bath cocktail. Unfortunately there is only one in the Advent Calendar gift set.
Looking like Cinderella’s carriage, i love the new Strawberry scent. Its different than any other Lush strawberry scent. Its almost like they mixed lush rose jam and lush strawberry twin tub jelly. Those notes mixed together.
I don’t think i’ve ever seen any Lush bath bomb that was so intricately designed. And the color combination of that shade of pink with a beautiful dusting of gold.
After my bath i ordered 3 more of this bath bomb. Who knows. i might buy more right before they go away in January.
This is a slow melty foamed type of bath bomb. I love that type. Those usually have the best bath art.
I noticed that this has pink shimmer in the water as well as gold shimmer! It doesn’t stick to your skin which is good. It’s not the most glitter i’ve seen in a lush bath bomb but it’s not the least amount either.
The pink and yellow combine to make a deep orange colored water, with pink and gold sparkles.
This is a Lush Uk subscription box exclusive for September 2021.
Have you tried it? What do you think?
I like this. It smells kind of like theres a bit of honey in it. I dont believe there is any in this but that’s what it smells like. Its got very fine exfoliation from the finely ground tagua beans.
Its a thick consistency and my skin feels great after i used it. My pores are smaller and my skin issoft. I do need moidturizer after using it but i always use moisturizer throughout the day anyway so.
If youve tried Lush Smugglers Soul facial exfoliator this Happy Skin is the same fineness of scrub but its a thicker consistency and it smells different. Like a light smell of nuts and honey.
See my 4 minute Up close sink demo where i wash my hands with it and you can see how much lather it has, how thick it is, etc.
Lush has created three new Christmas shower gels this year which are different than anything theyve made before. One of them is only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar Gift. There are 6-8 exclusive Christmas products only available in the Advent calendar.
Merry Christmas shower gel is quite a surprise to me. There are so many things about it that i like.
The color is a rich red, and it has gold sparkles in it. They settle at the bottom but i just shake it up to distribute the sparkke all throughout the shower gel.
Goodness. It looks like a ruby in the sun.
The scent is another surprise. It smells like a cherry. A chocolate covered cherry. It has a scent very similar to the Lush ‘Cherryish’ bodyscrub.
The ingredients are Aloe, Cocoa Absolute (chocolate), and Almond Oil. Its no wonder it smells like cherry.
The consistency is nice and thick.
I wish it was a bigger size. I love it.
It is pretty sweet. Some might find it too sweet. I dont find this to be the case. But i like things like Lush ‘Happy Blooming’ scent, which some find too sweet.
I pray that Lush will make this as an ‘in stores and online’ shower gel next Christmas.
Heres a video showing the consistency, lather, etc
4 out of 5 rating. my 2 minute Tub Demo Video is at the bottom of this page. I hope it helps.
I like this bubble bar. Mostly because one of my favorite lush products is Happy Blooming shower jelly, and this Screamo bubble bar was made with that same cherryish scent.
initially when i sniffed it i smelled a licorice kind of scent. But as i continued to sniff it i can definitely smell the Happy Blooming scent.
This bubble bar is very fragrant. It’s sweet and cherry.
This is a reusable type of lush bubble bar, not a regular, break it up with your hand squishy type of Lush bubble bar.
When i got it it had the stick to hold it but when i picked it up to use it the stick came out and a couple of small pieces broke off. I was like ‘oh no’ but it didn’t hurt anything i just held it in my hand instead.
Lush description: Giggle with a ghost whilst blowing cherry scented bubbles through the mouth of the scream. Swish the blower into the bath water to create purple bubbles that will bring joy to even the darkest of Halloween nights.
The wiggly nature of the jelly makes a great octopus 😄
Firstly, i was pleasantly surprised that this smells so good.
I figured it would be a scent already seen in a jelly. But its a great scent of passion fruit, black currant, vanilla and orange.
It smells like a fruit candy, but not in a fake candyish way. Its a natural sweet, fruity fragrance.
This afternoon I was told by Alessandro the Creator of this Lush Monster Octopus jelly that it’s “Not the scent of Very Very Frightening shower gel, It’s a new fragrance. Similar to the old passion fruit lip balm, but it’s actually new.”
I love the color! Red and purple are my favorite colors. Its got No glitter for anyone who is curious.
Ive discovered that the Octopus tentacles make it easier to hold on to when using it.
You can use it at room temperature, cooled in the fridge on hot days, or even frozen.
Ive used the other Lush jellies by slicing into small pieces and putting about a tablespoon in a plastic kitchen seive and hold the seive under the stream of water coming out of the bathtub faucet. And down below at water level in the tub it starts to make a light foam.
But with this here Monster Octopus jelly I just held the whole dang thing in the bath faucet stream. 😄 And it worked nicely.
Its also easier to hold the whole thing in the shower too to wash with it like a bar of soap.
i have two videos below showing what the Lush shower slimes are like close up.
Made for the first time this year (as a limited edition) for the Lush Christmas 2021 holiday.
There is an Ectoplasm shower gel that Lush made for Halloween a couple of years ago. I thought this was a wonderful new citrus scent for Lush. I asked for a perfume of this. And i must have not been the only one because soon thereafter Lush made an Ectoplasm liquid spray perfume and a body spray. Lush also made a bath bomb called Ectoplasm first. And a few years ago Lush made a solid puzzle bath oil called Tree-D (a play on the words 3D).
So now Lush is making an Ectoplasm Slime.
The scent is very citrussy. It’s a different scent than all the many other Lush citrus scents. I absolutely adore it. This has an addictive, tart effervescent scent of grapefruit and tangerine. It smells like fizzy soda. Moreso than Bubble or Celebrate imo. Ectoplasm isnt as sweet as those.
My husband has a little UV light (or black light) and he pointed it towards the container and WOW!
Ectoplasm slime is the fourth slime that Lush has made. I’m going to attach videos of the other slimes that i bought when Lush made them. All 3 slimes have been exclusive and one was sold as a limited edition for Halloween. Two of them came out at the same time; ‘Brr’ and ‘Bam’. One was minty and one had the same scent as Lush ‘Nevermind the Ballistics’.
Lush also made a black slime with the snow fairy scent, and a pink slime with the snow fairy scent.
So the Ectoplasm slime will be the same consistency of these other slimed in the videos, only it will be highlighter green/yellow and it is fluorescent under black light.
