Review: This is a pyramid shaped (the one on the left is a little less pyramid-like LOL), it has gold glitter and smells of Lush’s signature “Karma” scent. This is a wonderful smelling and skin softening melt. It has tns of cocoa butter. You simply put it in the bath water after it’s filled and it melts with the hot water and leaves little trails of beautiful golden glitter. You can also smoosh it up under the running water while the bath is filling up too. It’ll work either way. But beware…it has LOADS of glitter. You will have glitter everywhere (including your friends clothing, your dog and your husband) for a couple of days. I loved this melt and I wish it were still around.
Yuletide 2001 Lush Times description: Fake perfumes are so good these days that city dwellers have almost lost the ability to appreciate real scents what with the synthtic smells of coffee, bread and burgers pumped out to attract us to use their sources. There are some very beautiful synthetic perfumes (and there’s even one in Karma) but we prefer the real thing, perfumes made from flowers just like the great, great, great, great, great grandfather would have done if he hadn’t been too busy diggeing coal. Why? Because we don’t just use them for the scent; we use them for the effect on the mind and body. This is why a Bath Melt scented with Karma is so lovely; it softens and moisturizes your skin as well as scenting it. Try our new little pyramid of perfume in your bath and feel what we mean….
These were first introduced in the Lush Labs website as ‘bath baubles’ months ago. At that time i purchased a couple of each. There were 10-12 different ones.
For Christmas 2019 Lush has reintroduced some of the 10-12 bath baubles as ‘bath tablets’. Basically theyre solid bath oils. Similar in ingredients to the regular, smaller, round solid bath oils that Lush sells all year round in stores and on line. The small round solid bath oils float on top of the water and are shimmery with bright, vivid colors.
These bath tablets are similar in ingredients to those but are flat and rectangular, also being quite a bit larger.
Theyre made with cocoa butter and various other nut and fruit butters. They are moisturizing. These tabkets dont float however. They just sink to the bottom. They just fail to put on the dazzling show of the small round bath oils.
These bath tablets also dont color the water very well. In my demo video i used a whole one and the water was barely colored.
These larger, solid bath oils tablets also make the tub very slippery if youre not careful.
They make my dry skin feel moisturized. And some of them are in scent families that i quite like. Thats about all i can say. While they look cute before use, and smell good, they just don’t excite me.
Year before last, for Christmas, lush had the ‘Snow Fall’ solid bath oil. It was round, white, simmery, had the most glorious winter scent and looked like actual white powdery snow falling in the water. Now THAT was very nice.
Ill take the smaller, round bath oils any day over these bath tablets.
I LOVE ALL Lush bath oils, ive used all 20 Lush bath oils and have loved every one. This new one is no exception. Its even cuter because its not just round, it’s in a shape.
This is one of a dozen or so new bath oils introduced exclusively at the new Lush Liverpool spa Megastore.
For a limited time Lush Uk decided to make these available for purchase for anyone to buy on their retail website lush.co.uk under ‘lush labs’.
Imp-atient smells so good. Kind of like cherry-ish.
This little imp is so cute. Almost too cute to use.
‘On those days when you’re feeling impish and can’t shake the chip on your shoulder, quieten your bugbears with this appeasing cocoa butter bath oil. Rose absolute restores and renews your sense of balance, while pink pepper gives your bad attitude a kick up the backside, bringing you back down to earth. Cleansing cistus oil adds a honeyed fragrance, sweetening your mood and cleansing your skin. As this candied pink oil dissipates, your mood melts away. Step out of the bath empowered by your emotions and ready to face the day.‘
See my 5 minute tub demo video of this cute little guy.

This solid bath oil”‘cream” is one of many new bath oils (and 300+ other products) from Lush exclusive to the new biggest Lush store in the world at the Liverpool spa.
Lush Uk decided to sell it on their retail website for sny of us who wanted to buy one. I bought two.
Apparently its sold out on the site now. Im hoping they release it for Halloween 2019.
Its made with Almond essential oil and ylang ylang, and is said to smell cherryish. Indeed it foes dmell cherryish. Originslly i thought this might be American Cream scented, but it isn’t. I noticed there is ylang ylang in here, which American Cream does not have. And the strawberry, lavender and sage which are in American Cream, are not in ‘cream. So i asked Lush and verified that this is a similar but a different scent.
I didnt realize it would make purple water!
Thefe is also a silver sparkle in the wster too.
I would recommend this. The color is nice and the scent is nice.
This is possibly my favorite Christmas 2018 product.
Looking strikingly similar to Lush long time favorite ‘Ceridwen’s Cauldron’s bath oil, wrapped in a piece of purple muslin, the bath oil itself is also a deep purple color.
There are multiple little bits of goodies embedded in the top of Plum Pudding.
It makes it look quite like a real plum pudding.
That changes when it hits the water, and the irridescent showstopping purple glitter comes out.
It has the wonderful fruity aroma of plums and, oranges.
Im so glad that Lush decided to make a BIG bath oil, like the size they used to make. While the current lush bath oils are a perfect little gem sized piece, theres something to be said about having a big chunk of purple glittery goodness to rub all over oneself.
This makes my skin feel good. And its gorgeous. I cant resist purple glitter.
Im going to stock up and buy three to five of these beauties.
When you get back from late night shopping and you’re plum out of energy, get in the bath with this skin softening melt. The proof is in the pudding and with ingredients to soften and soothe you’re in for more than just a sweet treat! Watch your winter woes melt away with whole oats and almond oil to hydrate and calm. The best puddings this Christmas are made with Fair Trade organic cocoa butter to moisturise and protect your skin. Lay back and relax with calming osmanthus absolute and petitgrain oil. It’ll be a date to remember.
Here is my haul video where I describe the scents of these NEW MAY 2019 Lush Labs products.
I ordered these April 31. When i get them ill do a haul video and then ill do individual reviews as well. Im glad to see Sleepy soap being offered as thats the one i voted for. That said im crazy for their bath oils so i ordered those for sure! Which ones did you order?
Available March 2019
Hope this video helps. I tried to describe the scents in detail on the video. My favorite smelling ones are Candy Rain and Valkyrie.
Available February 2019 i ordered all four of the new shampoos to review for you.
I tried the green one first, called “Cafe” as it smelled the best to me. It smells like something yummy that i would eat.
I tried the green one first, called “Cafe” as it smelled the best to me. It smells like something yummy that i would eat.
It was easy to use. The shape of the bar made it easy to apply and use.
I have long, thick, curly hair, so any shampoo that isnt liquid-is more difficult for me to apply. That said this was easy as solid shampoos go.
The Cafe bar has a texture to it. Because Lush mixes lycopodium powder in it. Also, It looks like blades of grass are sticking out of it. I took a photo trying to show this below.
I always ask my husband and daughters’ opinion on these without prefacing or leading them in any way.
My husband’s opinion of the scent is “Smells like chocolate..and grass”.
My daughters opinion of the scent.
“It smells like something yummy i could eat”.
The ingredients are;
Clove bud oil
So we were all somewhat correct 😄
I would rate this bar a 5 out of 5 rating.
Its not for my hair type at all. I have the opposite of thinning hair, which
Cafe is made for, but anyone can use it.
Shampoo hair marshmallows. these are sort of similar to the lushlabs shampoo but different.
Lush Labs have released six new (sort of) perfumes. I say sort of new necause Lush released two or three of these in 2005 when they had their sister company in London called ‘B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful’. I still have my original Cocktail, Two Hearts and Assasin perfumes from that boutique.
Back then people in the U.S. could buy the products at the B Never boutique online through the Lush Uk site.
I bought Two Hearts Beats Again, and Over and Over perfumes this morning, as well as the new ‘Scrub Scrub Scrub’ body wash scrub.
Assasin used to be sold as a scent for Men. But i know women who like the Assasin scent too.
Cocktail- Lush used to sell a shower gel up until 2017 called ‘Wash That Man Out of My Hair’, and that was the ‘Cocktail’ scent. Its an effervescent blend of lavender, jasmine, bergamot, rose, sandalwood and ylang ylang.
Its kind of a fun scent. A bubbly floral scent.
Two Hearts Beats Again is slightly different than the original ‘Two Hearts Beating as One’ perfume that Lush used to sell at their B never boutique. This August 2018 version deletes the geranium and adds sandalwood! Yay! Im glad because the original needed some grounding.
Orange Blossom is exactly that. Pure unadulterated orange blossom. Lush has sold this perfume twice before.
Metamorphosis perfume smells just like the bath bomb of the same name. It smells earthy, and licirice-y.
Over and Over perfume smells just like the bath bomb of the same name. Citrussy Lime, green cypress, bergamot and spicy fennel.
Updated today August 6
Here is my Lush Labs Haul (with Demos) Video of the ‘Atmospheres’ shower blobs and the shower bombs.
Here is a video review and sink demo of the ‘Sleepy’ shower bomb
Update today May 29, 2018 #LushLabs announced, via the lush kitchen Instagram account, that they will sell tickets to the 2018 Lush Creative Showcase. Heres a link to last year’s Creative Showcase 2017 event.
Many customers were angry that there are not going to have any products to sell people on the site today as mentioned by lush earlier. Lush code to instead offer tickets today to the Uk event instead.
Below are Lush Labs products for April 2018.
Here’s my video describing these items
About 13.7 billion years ago there was a big bang and the universe blew up like soup does when you leave it in the microwave too long. Then bath bombs were invented.
And now Lush have come up with a new idea that won’t fit on the shelf above your sink (and a whole host of forward-thinking exclusives that will). Intrigued? Seek out #lushlabs on Instagram.
I made a video on my Lush reviews youtube channel i show my trip to England, given to me by Lush Uk. in this video below i go to the Lush 29 High Street labs in 2014. As you can see in the video the gentlemen explains the two offices at this location are the labs where Mark Constantine and Rowena Bird work on the Lush inventions. All lush products start here. It’s a lovely location where the original facade of the original Lush store is located.
This location is where Lush will be making something exclusive for people to buy on April 29, and all I can say is there are some exclusive Lush products that I have which I need to hurry up and review!

Monsiuer Gustave, A delightful character in the movie “The Grand Budapest Hotel’ , Monsiuer Gustave bath oil has the popular Lush perfume “Cocktail” scent. I love the color sooo much. And the subtle sweet tobacco scent mixes with the rose oil and herb-y lavender, making a fun, bright floral. The final color of the bath water is a gorgeous fushia purple. Those of you who remember Lush London boutique called “B Never” will remember the scent of “Cocktail‘ of which Monsiuer Gustave is made from.
Lush description: L’air du panache. Without question, without fail, and invariably, exceedingly lovely.

Another flower petaled beauty from Lush Oxford Street. The smell of this one is HEAVENLY. And the Heavenly scent stays on my skin for a good long time. It smells just like a fresh meadow of flowers. Just as an English Flower’s Barrow would smell. This Flower’s Barrow bath oil was made with Lush’ Gorilla perfume of the same name. Lush has also made a shampoo in the recent past called “Blousey” in this same scent.
Here’s a video i made of this Flower’s Barrow bath oil in the tub.
