Snowcake

This shower gel has the wonderful scent of Snowcake soap and Marzibain bubble bar. Firstly I was never knocked out about Snowcake soap. It was just “Meh” to me for years. But this shower gel has changed my mind completely about the Snowcake scent. When I opened the bottle I couldn’t believe how fresh it smelled! Everythying good that I could smell about Snowcake was in this bottle of shower gel. It is nice and strong and fresh smelling. It’s not sweet.  It smells lightly of rose and almond.  A clean, comforting scent. It’s got that marzipan scent, with a bit of rose and a bit of almond. I’m a Snowcake believer. I give this 5 stars.

Mistletoe

5 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo video of this below

Lush made this lovely ‘Mistletoe’ Christmas 2016 bath bomb with their popular “Silky Underwear’ scent.  It’s a lovely smoky vetiver and jasmine fragrance. It almost smells as if there is a dash of vanilla in there too, but there isn’t any.  The ingredients lists holly lustre, but i didn’t see any sparkle to this nor in the water?

It’s not a jasmine fragrance of the strongest kind, such as, Flying Fox, Floating Flower, Godiva. Yes Yes Yes, or Lust.  This is a more sultry jasmine, not too strong.  It has a slight sweetness to it, and a deep vetiver note. Vetiver has an earthy and smoky aroma, it feels restorative and relaxing and has been referred to as the oil of tranquillity.

Don’t get caught under the mistletoe this Christmas; pop it straight in the bath and leap in! A dizzyingly romantic, sweet-as-kisses bundle of heady jasmine and sultry vetivert begin your festive romance. As floral layers of colour fizz away they conjure up a nostalgic fairy tale fragrance that’s sure to sweep you off your feet.

While this has no glitter in it, i do’t miss it.  This is such a beautiful and perfect bath bomb.

Santasaurus

4 out of 5 rating

See my demo video below

This is a cute re-usable bubble bar wand in the scent of Lush popular Honey I Washed the Kids fragrance. It’s a cute green dinosaur wearing a red santa hat. I couldn’t believe how many bubbles this made with barely leaving the water run on it for only a minute!
I can see how this would be economical because one could get two or three bubble baths out of it.

Lush says “Roaring fires signal the beginning of Christmas. Chilly toes wait eagerly for them. Blankets view them with a little jealous trepidation. They mean hot chocolate by the mugful, spicy punch by the tankard, games of charades, onesies, tinsel-covered trees, repeats on tv, mince pies and dinosaurs. And roaring fires aren’t just found in the fireplace; they’re found when you hold this Santasaurus under a raging tap and watch the bubbles of joyous Brazilian orange and fun, fruity bergamot oil fly out.”file-oct-13-1-39-46-pm

Yog Log

This is so moisturizing!  And it smells like something i could eat for desert. It doesn’t have an egg nog scent per se, it’s more of a toffee, caramel, butter and sweet cream kind of yumminess.  It actually makes my mouth water.

I need help.

Comforting caramel caresses are just a lather away, whatever the weather.
This satisfyingly squidgy smoothie of spicy clove bud oil, ylang ylang and softening cocoa butter will have you feeling warm and fuzzy all day long.
Like a lovely soapy, swiss roll, just grab a handful of toffee-sweet smoothie and lavish all over

This has the same yummy scent of the past “Yog Nog’ soap, “Yog Log’ bath bomb, perfume, fun bar, etc)

Here’s a demo video i made of how to use this

Buche De Noel

4 out of 5 rating

Buche

This is a facial cleaner scrub, a limited edition for Christmas. Though most people like the “Let the Good Times Roll”, Buche De Noel is much more interesting and is more appropriate for my kind of skin.  It’s more moisturizing then LTGTR.  It is chock full of various goodies; Almonds, oranges, cranberries, brandy, cedarwood.  It has a holiday kind of vibe to it.  It’s a coarser faical cleanser than other Lush facial cleansers like let the good times roll, herbalism and angel’s delight. I liek the chunkiness of it.  It’s perfect for my skin.

Ingredients: Ground Almonds (Prunus dulcis), Kaolin, Glycerine, Fresh Satsumas (Citrus reticulata), Dried Cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Brandy, Almond Essential Oil (Prunus dulcis), Vetivert Oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Cedarwood Oil (Juniperus virginiana), *Linalool, *Cinnamal, Perfume, Nori Seaweed (Algae), Candy Pine Tree

*Occurs naturally in essential oils

Lush Times: Buche de Noel was around last Christmas, but it went by the name of Santa’s Rice Porridge. It’s back this year with a few tweaks; it’s still fresh and preservative-free, but it’s a fresh cleanser now. We make it like a nutritious pudding with a twist.
