Support Bubble

5 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute tub demo video below

In 2021 The uk government allowed people to form “support bubbles” during the corona virus pandemic lockdown.

So if you were single or were caring or a relative you would be able to form a Support bubble and could visit the person even during lockdown.

So Alessandro at Lush UK was inspired by this an developed a bubble bar that looks like big bubbles.

With a fragrance of grapefruit and petitgrain to cheer you up. It’s the same scent as the Lush ‘Madame President’ bath bomb from Mother’s Day years ago. It’s not a sweet scent. It’s fruity and fresh, with petigrain which is sometimes called the bitter orange tree.

So this was a lockdown invention ❤️

It makes bright pink water, with silver sparkle.

And Tons of bubbles.

Lush Kitchen June 2021 subscription box voting

Here are the six products that we choose from to vote.

Here’s my vote

93,000 Miles shower jelly

4 out of 5

spicy. Cinnamon and mint. Kind of like Wiccy Magic muscles bar.

see my one minute video of it below
small size is $6.95 (3.50gbp) , large size is $11.95 (6.95 gbp)

After your muscles have been hitting the running tracks, have a run-in with this invigorating eucalyptus and mint jelly. Whether you like it fast or slow, whether you’ve completed a marathon or mastered a sprint finish this bright wobbly jelly will loosen aches and pains and send lingering cramp on its way. Take it straight out of the freezer and into the shower to enjoy the energising power of invigorating peppermint and warming spicy cinnamon leaf oils.

Antiphilitron liquid shampoo

2 out of 5

i wouldn’t recommend if you have dry hair like me. 

for greasy and normal hair

500g £6.65 250g £3.90 100g £2.05

Ingredients: fresh lemon peel decoction, sodium lauryl ether sulphate, fresh lemon juice, cocoamphocarboxy-glycinate, lemon oil, lauryl betaine, perfume, methyl & propyl paraben.

This was more of a clarifying shampoo, good for getting the greeen out of blonde hair if one swims alot in chlroined water. Great lemony scent. This was a bit harsh on my hair and left tons of tangles. Just not for my hair type is all.

Lush 1999 description: Antiphilitron is for getting your hair clean when other shampoos don’t quite cut the mustard. What its fresh lemon juice, lemon oil and organic lemon peel mixture is good at is really getting hair squeaky clean, washing away grease, city grime or country muck and even chlorine from swimming pools. It also slices right through the silicones that get dumped on your hair by modern shampoos that make your hair smooth and shiny at first but then build up to make it a bit sad and lifeless. Fresh lemons make Antiphilitron smell fantastic, they perk up your hair and scalp and they help to revive your sleepy head in the morning. To greasy hair and grubby hair we say get Antiphilitron and get lively!

Banana Moon soap

4 out of 5

This was sold for about five years in all stores as a regular year round item.

The Lush Kitchen subscription box has this up for the vote with 5 other products for the month of May/June 2021

Lush used to make them in long cylindrical poles and then the last year they were around they started making the boring rectangle. But the soap didn’t change, it was still nice.

Ingredients: Sodium Palm Kernelate, Propylene Glycol, Natural Yoghurt, Fresh Bananas (Musa paradisiaca), Sodium Stearate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Perfume, EDTA, Tetrasodium Editronate, Glycerine, Sodium Chloride, Titanium Dioxide, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides)

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.

Banana Moon scent family

Grass body lotion

3 out of 5 rating

This was an exclusive made in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen that i bought. They had numerous products turned into lotion that week in the kitchen in 2014.

This lotion is the least grass smelling of all the grass products.

Grass scent family (missing the perfume oil and body spray)

Intergalactic shower gel

4 out of 5

The bath bomb is sweet, minty, woody and citrussy. However, the shower gel loses some of its sweetness, and its woodiness in the translation. So the shower gel is minty and herbal with a jint of grapefruit. Not as sweet though, and not as layered in scent. But nice smelling nonetheless. ❤️

The bath bomb is very popular because of its looks and its scent. Its cobalt blue and full of Glitter. Like a planet, in space, amongst the sparkly stars.

This was never sold in Lush stores. It was only made one time by the Lush UK Community favorites, along with four others.

Here’s what it looks like

Rough With the Smooth body scrub bar (Lord of Misrule scent)

4 out of 5

This smells so damn good omg. It has a good scrubbiness to it with tiny exfoliating bits along with cocoa butter. Use it in the shower. keep it in a soap dish to dry between uses.

It’s got that wonderful vanilla, black pepper and patchouli scent.

see my 2 minute video of its consistency below

Made with orange peel and it smells SO good. If you like the smell of Lush ‘Orange’ liquid body scrub you’ll love the smell of this balm.

This was created by Alessandro from Lush.

It was included as an exclusive product in the April 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.

This has a totally different consistency than all the other Lush foot products. It’s not like a lotion in consistency. It’s the texture of a lip balm.

The best way to use this in my opinion is to have a foot soak at night, try to scrub away any rough skin on the feet , and when the foot soak is done and your dry your feet off, slather this foot balm on your feet and then put socks on overnight while you sleep.

When i did this my feet were so soft.

Atom Heart Mother

5 out of 5 rating

see my 4 minute Tub Demo Vid below

made in the Lush ‘So White’ scent.

Atom Heart Mother

This is a new bath bomb with a retro product scent.

This was made for Mother’s Day 2021, along with three other bath bombs and two bubble bars.

Mother’s Day 2021 products

The bomb has a nice, strong Apple-y scent.

It smells just like all of these products. more like the Once Upon a Time lotion.

Atom Heart Mother has the same scent of so White body spray

“Sweet apple scent and spectacular bath art help to unfurl a summer’s day. Escape into your bathroom, fill the tub and drop in.
Smell familiar? This shares a scent with our Once Upon A Time range.

How to store:
Keep in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to feel relaxed and uplifted.”


I love the blue sky and white clouds look.

The apple smell filled my whole bathroom with its wonderful scent.

I think it’s awesome how the blue bomb starts spewing pink foam, and then before you know it those combine to make purple.

Here’s a tub demo video

Jasmine Cream

4 out of 5 rating

see my tub demo vid below

It’s said that this shares its scent with the Lush ‘Wintergarden’ bath bomb. But with the addition of Jasmine.

Jasmine Cream is a new limited edition bubble bar this year.

This Jasmine Cream bubble bar looks just like a jasmine flower.

How to use:
Gently scented with a soft creamy filling, crumble under the running tap to release mounds of bubbles atop creamy white water. Jasmine and ylang ylang fill the air while skin-softening bubbles fill the bath.

How to store:
Keep in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use this plastic-free bubble bath. A perfect Mother’s day gift

This Jasmine Cream bubble bar (and the Violet Cream bubble bar) have a creamy center.

This isn’t a reusable bubble bar, it’s a regular squishy kind of lush bubble bar.

The cream in this jasmine one is yellow.

It’s got some glitter in it but not a lot. And you can see it in the water but again it’s not a lot.

Flamingo Egg

Definitely a 5 out of 5 rating

See my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below

Flamingo Egg bath bomb

I love the color combination. Pink, purple and blue-green.

It looks like a geode because of the purple salt crystals on the top which look just like the crystals inside a geode rock.

They were so pretty i had to get two of them.

How to use:
A Perfect Planet needs plastic-free bathing. Run a bath and release this sweet, fruity scented egg for deep purple waters.

How to store:
Keep this skin softening salt and sparkling lustre bath bomb somewhere cool and dry before starting the hunt.

It’s a fast and loud fizzer. I like the noisy bombs because the sound is relaxing to me.

It smells yummy and fruity!

Ingredients

List of ingredients

You can see the color of the water change from green blue, to green and cobalt blue, to deep purple.

It only has a minimal amount of silver glitter in the water.

I would recommend this bath bomb.

Funfetti Cake

5 out of 5 rating

How to use:
Scoop out a little of this sweet cake treat onto your finger and buff your lips before licking off the excess.

This has a yummy bakery smell. Like cake. And it tastes good too. Like eating cake batter. 😊

Muddy Carrots

4 out of 5 rating

my sink demo video will be up in an hour or so.

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 different and that’s why i like it.

Eggy Wegg

When i buy these and get my order delivered i’ll make tub demo videos and take photos for you.

Same scent as the Lush Aurora Borealis scrub

Lush Aurora Borealis body scrub

The scent is different for Lush. It’s very fruity and minty. Very strong. If i had to describe it in one word i would say ‘refreshing’

Violet Cream

5 out of 5 rating See my Relaxing 4 minute Tub Demo below

Violet Cream bubble bars

This is a new bubble bar for Mother’s Day 2021. Mother’s Day comes earlier in Europe than it is here in the U.S.

I think that, because of the remarkable design of it, and the lovely sweet violet scent, this is one of the best bubble bars Lush has made in years.

It’s a regular squishy bubble bar, not a reusable.

It’s just like a cream violet, it’s even got some cream in the middle.

Even though there is a mesmerizing green-blue colored glitter on the outside, this bar doesn’t make glittery water, in case you were curious.

Thi bar is worthy of my buying six more of them.

I’ll keep them in my dark closet or my dark lingerie drawer so the color stays as long as possible and i’ll keep them in something air tight so they don’t harden up.

These are only available for a limited time basis, just for Mother’s Day 2021.

This bubble bar makes lots of creamy bubbles.

Lush How to use suggestions:
Crumble under running water and allow the uplifting violet and bergamot scented bubbles to build on top of skin-softening lilac waters.
Smell familiar? This bubble bar shares a scent with our Daddy-o shampoo and conditioner range.

Lush How to store suggestions:
Like any soft-centred treat, keep cool and dry until the moment of indulgence and feel good knowing the rose absolute is sourced from our regenerative rose projectin Pakistan.

Rose Gold

See my 5 minute Tub Demo Vid below

Rose Gold bath bomb

Run a bath, drop in and escape into a shimmering sunset dream with calming floral scents. A perfectly opulent Mother’s Day gift.

How to store:
Keep in a cool, dry place ready for a softening soak.

This is apparently made in the Lush ‘Wintergarden’ bath bomb scent, which is very floral.

The Lush description has something about this being the colors of a sunset. I can see why.

The bomb is beautiful with its multi floral pattern and it’s beautiful color of rose pink with gold all sround it.

For some reason this didn’t smell exactly like Wintergarden. I adore the scent of Wintergarden and even bought the exclusive Wintergarden body spray-but this bomb, especially when in the water smells a bit different to me. I could swear it has an almost jasmine-like scent but it must just be my nose.

As it starts to dissolve it lets out a stream of gold and orange foam.

It certainly does have the colors of a sunset.

Ingredients

List of ingredients

The primary scent is ylang ylang, but it also has bergamot and orris root powder.

Even the glitter is pink and gold. 😍 You can see this dual colored glitter very well in the Tub Demo Vid below.

It ultimately blends together to make an orange colored water.

A beautiful bomb for Mother’s Day. I still like the scent of the Mother of Pearl more but the design and color of this Rose Gold is beautiful.

Mother of Pearl bath bomb

Pearl bath bomb


How to use:

Run a bath and release the delicately floral scent for luxurious milky, soothing waters topped with pearlescent lustre for a bath bomb and oil in one.

How to store:
When only the best will do this Mother’s Day. Keep in a cool, dry place until you’re ready for a moisturising soak.


Pearl bath bomb looks like a giant pearl. It’s white and has a pearlescent sheen on the top half of the bomb.

When i first took it out of my order box i feel absolutely in love with the scent. On my video i said it smells like vanilla icing.

Lush definitely needs to make a perfume of this. I felt so strongly about this that i contacted Mark the creator and owner of Lush about this.

Pearl doesn’t change the water color nor does it product bath art. But it doesn’t have to because it’s one of those bombs like ‘So White’ or ‘Snow Drop’ that are white and foamy and dance all over the tub. This Pearl does this back and forth rocking movement the whole time it’s in the tub. It’s quite charming as it shakes itself all around letting go of some beautiful white shimmer in the water.

The incredible scent stayed on my skin and when i put on my robe even my robe smelled like vanilla icing with roses. Gorgeous!

One word to describe this bomb is ‘ethereal’.

Singing Daffodil

see my 2 minute tub demo video below

This has the Floral scent of Lush Santa’s Grotto bath bomb.

I didn’t expect to like this. With the exception of it being a pretty flower. I liked that part very much.

I almost didn’t buy it though because i’m getting bored with the reusable type of Lush bubble bars that we’ve been seeing. I miss the regular squishy type of Lush bubble bars.

However when i smelled it i fell in love with the fragrance. It’s the same lovely floral scent of the Lush ‘Santa’s Grotto’ Christmas bath bomb from two years ago. And it’s a different scent. It’s not a scent that lush has used before in other things.

Whenever Lush creates a new floral i get excited.

This didn’t make as many bubbles as the other reusable bubble blowers that i’ve bought from Lush. I don’t know why. But i did enjoy bathing in it.

It doesn’t color the water, and there is no sparkle.

How to use:
Hold under running water for mounds of bubbles or blow through for an airborne bubble show. When you’ve whipped up enough bubbles, pop on the side to dry for next time.

How to store:
With three distinctly floral essential oils, keep out of direct light and somewhere cool until ready to bloom in bubbles.

Bath bomb

4 out of 4 rating see below for a 3 minute Tub Demo Video 😊

Snowman jelly scented (which is the same as the carrot bubble bar)

I’ll be uploading my video tomorrow Monday.

The second i put this bomb in the tub i could smell the familiar scent of ‘The Carrot’ soap, and the other members of this scent family. It’s a beautiful and unique scent.

Carrot oil, buchu oil , bergamot. The scent is fruity but not in a citrussy way nor a berries way.

It’s lightly ‘perfume-y’. And the scent stays on the skin a nice long time.

It’s a slow, foamy type of bath bomb with some awesome bath art.

Here’s a pic i took of the scent family.

The final water color is a pretty lilac color.
