The Big Banana

3.5 out of 5 rating. See my demo and review video below.

This has its own new scent which is made with almond essential oil, ylang ylang flower oil, orange oil, clove bud oil, and mashed banana. Along with shea butter and other skin moisturizing goodies to add the proper amount of slip for a massage.

I am living for the various fruit shaped products that Lush have been making and selling exclusively since Sept 2018

The Big Banana has a nice smell. It doesnt smell like banana runts candy. Its a light, more natural banana scent.

The consistency is oily.

Its not like sympathy for the skin in scent which is more earthy imo.

here is my video i recorded for you which helps explain the scent and shows the consistency.

Christmas Cake

4 out of 5 rating

This is such a yummy smelling soap. It smells like sweet almond fondant icing. I did not expect to like this soap because the ingredients don’t make it sound yummy…but the way it smells -YUM.

It’s not particularly moisturizing but i don’t care it smells good enough to eat. How do they make it smell like cake? It’s got a warm, nutty smell as well.

Hand of Friendship

A beautiful design with a beautiful message
Made with skin-softening coconut and almond essential oils, Hand Of Friendship Soap is a cherry blossom-scented sudser that will help us all share a beautiful message to our new neighbors. For every bar sold, we’re donating 100% of the sales to our Friendship Fund, which will help various organizations provide relief to the most pressing needs of refugees arriving in North America.

 

This is a very pretty soap.  Initially i was worried because my nose only picked up the two woody notes in this soap. However, after picking it up and smelling it 20 times i smelled a definite cherish note. And then once i smelled the cherry that’s what i primarily smell now, and the initial prominence of the woody notes drift to the background. Now when i pick it up it’s quite lovely and a bit yummyish as well. I would buy more than one of this soap.

This was noticeable more moisturizing than other soaps.  So my rating would be a 4-4.5 out of 5.

I took a couple of photos so you can see what it looks like.  As you can see i bought multiples.

Limelight toothy tabs

Here’s a video demo/review i made of these Limelight toothy tabs.

Lush description:  Make an Entrance

All the worlds a stage.  Get ready for your big moment with super citrusy lime oil.

This has lime, lemon and almond oil.  The shimmery green color is pretty.  While these were pleasant, they’re not my favorite of the 5 new Lush toothy tabs debuting first at Lush Oxford Street store.  As i said in my video it’s not bad, it’s not fabulous, but somewhere in the middle.  I didn’t taste as much lime as i thought i would considering the tastiness of the other toothy tabs i’ve tried. Still it made my mouth feel squeaky clean.

Here’s a video demo i made of Limelight toothy tabs. See my other toothy tab demos: Bling, Oral Pleasure, Tooth Fairy, Miles of Smiles.

Golden Handshake hand mask treatment

 

£2.95  See my demonstration video below

Lush Description:  Just the job.  Moisturize every nook and cranny with this pampering hot handmask.  It’s just the job for hardworking hands.

Get hands on.  Our hydrating, silky cream is designed with your busy paws in mind.

Feeling all washed up? This pampering, avocado, argan and castor oil hot hand mask is just the job for hardworking hands. Full of fresh cupuacu and murumuru butters to hydrate every nook and cranny and super-soak your paws.

 

To get started, stand your hand mask upright in a bowl which is large enough to fit both of your hands in comfortably. Add enough hot water to cover the product and stir, allowing the treatment to develop and thicken. Plunge your hands into the resulting dreamy, creamy lotion and soak for around 15 minutes (or until the doorbell rings). Alternatively, the melted treatment can be massaged into hands before rinsing off.

This smells good. It has a light perfume. Here’s a video i made to show i use it 🙂

The video will show you what the consistency is like up close.

Make sure not to microwave this. It will get too hot and you may burn yourself if you’re not sure to test the temp with your finger  I heat the water then i pour it into the bowl some at a time, so i can control it more that way.

This worked well for me and made my skin feel and look softer.  The *feel* of the warm, whippy goodness in the bowl is heaven. Put aside some time to do this, it’s not good if you try to rush this.  Just like you’re i the spa getting a treatment.
