Lush Mother’s day 2022

As i do every year, i’ll buy the products below and add pics and demo videos, reviews as soon as i get them and use them. 😊

Lush remade two favorites from last Mother’s day 2021; Atom Heart Mother, and Rose Gold. They have the same look and same name, and i’m assuming the same scent, but you never know sometimes Lush likes to trick us. lol

There’s a familiar looking bath bomb that looks exactly like the bubble bar of the same name and scent as last year, only this year it’s a bath bomb not a bubble bar. It’s ‘Jasmine’ bath bomb. I think i have one Jasmine bubble bar still from last year so it would be nice to have a bath with the bath bomb AND the bubble bar. 👏🏼

What are you most excited about? Is there anything you don’t like?

I’m wary of the Wonder Mum eye pad. I hope it’s not like the lip mask Lush made for Valentine’s day that did not work.

The Yummy Custard body wash sounds good to me. And i can’t wait to see what the soap smells like!

I’m hopeful about the shower gel. The products that Lush makes with Mimosa in them, like Rub Rub Rub scrub or Sakura bath bomb, are nice, but maybe this is a different Mimosa scent than those.

Atom Heart Mother bath bomb

Enjoy the sights and scents of a summer’s day, from dawn to dusk and into the glorious warm night, in your bathtub. I assume it’s the same appley So White or Once Upon a Time scent as last year’s, but we shall see.

Buzzy Mum soap

Hot Lips

This is a lip mask. A lip mask is a new (ish) way for hydrating your lips. Just like sheet masks hydrate your face. I’ve been using lip masks from various different K Beauty brands for a couple of years and use them pretty regularly on my self care days.

Lush says on their Uk website “

DESCRIPTION

“Softer, smoother lips are a must whether it’s Valentine’s Day or not, because who doesn’t want kissable lips all the time? Hot Lips is made with loads of glycerin so it’s mega hydrating, while natural ground bamboo stem extract delivers a super-fine polish to scrub away any unwanted dry bits. Plus, it tastes like sweet cherries. But don’t take our word for it; ask a willing friend to try it out.

And this is their instructions for use on the uk lush online purchase product website.

HOW TO USE

“Designed for one-time use, simply pop the mask over your lips and let the ingredients to get to work for a few minutes. Once you’re done, buff the product across your lips until you feel the bamboo. Then, lick your lips or rinse away any residue.”

The scent of this lip mask is so good. It smells like another Valentines product from two years ago called ‘Kiss Me Quick’. It’s what i would call a lipstick mixed with cherry. I love the smell.

So on to how it works. So i unpacked it from its little envelope.

It feels nice. I noticed it doesn’t have any liquid, or gel, nor any kind of serum on it or in it.

I thought that was different for a lip mask. The ones i’ve tried weren’t dry like this. At the very least it shoulve been damp. So it wouldn’t stick to my lips whatsoever. Lush’s instructions say to ‘put it on your lips for a few minutes’ and let it moisturize or hydrate yoyr lips.

So since it didnt dtay on i tried just holding it in place with my hand. I even tried it lying down so it would stay on my lips.

Nothing happens. Literally nothing. My lips were dry just like they were before i put the mask on.

There wasnt even any product on my lips. There wasnt even any residue! How is this even possible?

I tried wetting it a little bit. Nope. No change. Still didnt stick to my lips.

Im so confused as to how this works.

Hmm. There was what looked like liquid or color that seeped into the envelope that it was in. Maybe thats the issue? Dunno.

It sure is cool looking in the sun!

I dont know its possible im just being dumb but i didnt really get it. 🤷🏽‍♀️Id rate it a 2 out of 5 rating.

Heres my Demo video i nade for you showing how it looks and feels close up.

Kim the Carrot

I apologize. I just could not place this scent correctly initially.

You know what really messed with my head? Well, for Easter holidays past Lush has made carrot looking bubble bars. And so when i first smelled this Kim the Carrot on my Valentine’s 2022 Haul video I. DiD. NOT. LIKE. IT.

I expected a natural carrot scent. All the irange carrot shaped bars had carrot juice in them. For years.

Even though its not an Easter product i still expected that scent. And when i smelled the Creamy Candy scent instead-it messed me up 😅 It smelled famisr to me but i couldnt out my fimger on what it was iwas smelling. At the time i couldnt even tell what scent it was. Creamy Candy. It’s CREAMY CANDY 😂

This is a New, limited edition bubble bar for Valentines 2022. It’s a new shape and a new Vanilla scent.

ETA: This is not a new vanilla scent. This is the Lush

Creamy Candy scent.

After i buy one I’ll add more info pics and video when i take a bath with it tomorrow.

Here’s a video i recorded for you of my bath with Kim the Carrot and you can see what it looks like when using it.

I Can Resist Everything But Temptation

See my closeup sink Demo Video Below.

This is a New Lush limited edition shower gel for Valentine’s 2022.

This is a new shower gel with a new scent. It’s an apple scent, but different than another Lush apple scent called ‘So White’. To me so white is more of a green apple scent and Temptation is more of a red apple scent.

Even though lush said its a new scent i found out from The_Lush_Box oninstagram that Lush made this shower gel in the same scent as their 2004 ‘Temptation’ soap

It’s not a sweet scent. It reminds me of fresh green grass under an apple tree. The apple is more subtle.

A beautiful red color with no glitter.

My husband said he smells apple with a bit of floral. Neither one of us smell any hint of cinnamon in this shower gel.

Itsmade in thesame scent as the Lush ‘Apple Crumble‘ bubble bar.

The gel is so thick that when you squeeze it out it falls out in ribbons. And i did my plate test in the video and it took a LONG time to drip down the plate.

Lush description: In the mood for love? This one’s packed with aphrodisiac ingredients like cinnamon, red rose petals, and ginseng. Perfect for sharing showers.

Lush: Whether you love to share showers or go it alone, you’ll want to get wild with this irresistible body wash. It starts with the perfect throuple: an infusion of cinnamon, red rose petals and ginseng, ingredients that are known for their aphrodisiac effects, and then kicks it into high gear with cinnamon leaf oil for an extra-spicy good time. So go ahead, lather up, enjoy the moment, and just try to resist this one.

My Close Up Sink Demo Video Below

I’d rate this a 4 out of 5 rating ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Strawberry Heart

5 out of 5 rating See my Sink and Tub demo Video i recorded for you Below. 😊

I’m not sure if Lush is only offering the small size of jelly this Valentine’s?

Nevertheless, i love this jelly. I think this Syrawberry Heart shower jelly is one of the best strawberry scents that lush has ever made (besides the yummy yummy yummy shower gel) . Lush says it’s a new strawberry scent. And yes i would say it is. Doesn’t smell like Yummy Yummy Yummy because there’s no geranium, no frankincense and no bergamot. It Doesn’t smell like Strawberry Twin Tub jelly either because there is no floral notes.

This truly smells like Strawberry jam.

Looks cool with the sun shining through it

New Rose soap Valentine’s 2022

See my sink Demo Video below.

This is a new, limited edition soap that will be coming out for Valentines 2022.

I love the Lush Valentines soaps quite a bit. I’ve been buying Lush Valentines soaps every year since 2001. For the past few years Lush has reference to a Rose on their Valentines soap. This one is beautiful with a pink color and a rose carving on top in a different shade of pink. I can’t wait to see the whole extra large store display soap of this. I will take make a vid of it at the sink for you.

I would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating. If it was just a bit stronger in scent i’d give it a 5.

This soap was made with the Lush ‘Softy’ scent. It’s a beautiful light rose, orange, and ylang ylang scent. It’s a soft powdery rose with little bits of rose petals in it.

Lush has made a few items in the ‘Softy’ scent;

Christmas Hedgehog bubble bar

Noriko soap

Powder Puff Deoderant – I’m adding my pic and review of this tomorrow.

Eyeball bath bomb

Softy bath bomb

Side View There is gold dust on the side

It kind of smells similar to the Lush Unicorn Horn bubble bar but with rose.

I can definitely smell the lavender in this soap, and the orange oil is nice, and it’s subtle. The ylang ylang is present too.

It’s no wonder i love this soap. At one point long ago my favorite lush bath bomb was Softy.

Lush Description: Grab a dozen of these perfectly perfumed soaps for the ultimate Valentine’s Day bouquet that’ll calm, soothe and hydrate skin.

Don’t just give any flowers this Valentine’s Day? Give the gift of flowers and exquisitely-scented skin. New Rose is packed with a blend of skin-soothing ingredients like rose absolute, rice bran oil, aloe vera gel, and lavender oil to help soothe sore or irritated skin. There’s also a blend of floral oils and rose water, giving it a light, delicate scent that’s both comforting and cheery.Proudly packaging-free.Benefits

  • Rose oil and absolute are serious soothers

  • Rice bran oil keeps things extra gentle

Confetti perfume

I made a video describing this scent. The video is below, just go to 7:32 in the video for Confetti.

Confetti                                €90/£70 for 100ml

Emma’s initial workings were based on Rose, Violet, Coffee and Pear as a combination. Rowena smelt the perfume and thought it smelt of Sugar Almonds (a pastel coloured candy Almond – Usually found as a gift on the table at British Weddings). In Italy they have the same tradition for celebratory events and the Sugar Almonds are known as Confetti – which was a perfect fit …so much so, that this will be Emma’s signature scent for her wedding in 2020. 

Ingredients: Violet leaf absolute, Rose oIl, sandalwood oil

QI: DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Alpha-Isomethyl ionone, Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Geraniol, Rose Oil (Rosa damascena), Violet Leaf Absolute (Viola odorata), Sandalwood Oil (Santalum austro-caledonicum vieill), *Benzyl Alcohol, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Benzyl Cinnamate, *Cinnamal, *Citral, *Citronellol, *Eugenol, *Farnesol, *Limonene, *Linalool

Olfactory description: The three stages of relationships are featured in this perfume. The innocent of violet leaf, like the beginnings of all relationships. The sensuality and deepness of love from the Roses and the comforting solidity of all marriages provided by the sandalwood oil. Sweet and floral.

Keep It Fluffy perfume

5 out of 5 rating. Vanilla, Jasmine, Lemongrass, Rose.

In the above picture I show the current Lush 2021 “Keep It Fluffy bubble bottle’ solid bubble bar, made in the same scent as the perfume. 

Lush used to haver a sister company called “B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful’ in the mid 2000’s in England. They made bath and beauty products like the current lush that were a bit more upscale. They also made or remade many things that they used to sell when they were called “Cosmetics To Go’.  Lush made 10 different perfumes at this boutique, along with bath and beauty products the same fragrances as the perfumes.  One of the ten perfumes were called “Keep It Fluffy”. 

In the above and below photos I show the different bottles that Lush/B Never made this perfume in. 

I tried pretty much everything at the b Never boutique, being that the lush UK site had a tab to order online from B Never, and delivered it to those of us customers who lived in the United states. And while I tried everything there and I liked much of it, Keep It Fluffy was one of my favorites. I Like rose.  I always have.  

Keep It Fluffy is a soft, pretty scent that is fresh nd clean but also floral.  It’s not too sweet.  Not too rosy, not too jasmine. It’s just right. This scent is like the younger sister to Lush “Fever” perfume, which is another one of my favorite perfumes from Lush.. 

This was one of my favorites at the B Never boutique. I order everything in this scent.  Lush description: The Doris Day off bubble bars.  Lie back and dream of old school glamour.  Powdery vanilla and uplifting lemongrass pair perfectly to create a pretty scent. Sensual and Heady Jasmine takes you from day into sultry nights.  Soothing, powdery vanilla leaves you feeling comforted and warm. 

Here is a 4 minute video I made for you describing this fragrance.

The Ex Factor

5 out of 5 rating

The Lush Ex Factor bath bomb was made for Valentine’s on a limited edition basis one year. And they hadn’t made it again since. I voted for it when i saw it was up for the vote again for the Lush February 2022 Subscription box.

Im so glad it won the vote.

The name has two meanings; The showv X Factor, and A voodoo doll for your Ex.

😊

The Ex Factor ath bomb was made with the Lush Butterball bath bomb scent. It’s a buttery, bakery like smell. Sometimes it smells like chocolate to me.

4 out of 5 rating.  See my Tub Demo Video below

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Synthetic Musk, Ylang Ylang Oil, Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Perfume, Colour 42090, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Colour 45410}

Lush Sweet, vanilla-scented voodoo for spurned lovers. The Ex Factor Ballistic is an antidote to the usual Valentine’s Day sweetness and a celebration of our darker, more cynical side. It has the same vanilla-musk scent as our creamy Butterball, but it turns the water a deep, calming blue. Dip the little fellow in, limb by limb, until he has dissolved. It’s especially fun if you have an appetite for revenge and need some closure.

I love this bath bomb.  Not only is it made to look like a boo doo doll, but it’s made with the soft and creamy butterball bath bomb scent but it’s a beautiful blue color and it’s very original and different than other Lush bath bombs.

This is one of those Lush bath bombs that fizz very fast, with a great arms noise and it dissolves fast.  Makes the end water a beautiful blue color.
