Christmas Hedgehog

4 out of 5 rating

This is Hedgehog bubble bar from the 2010’s.

This is such a cute little guy. He’s white and blue with white small shimmer mixed in with the white part, and bigger chunkier white glitter on top.

This bubble bar has the Lush classic ‘Softy’ bath bomb scent, which is made from rose, orange oil and ylang ylang.

I liked him a lot. The scent wasn’t quite as lovely as the softy bath bomb. The scent was more faint than in the bath bomb. But he was cute all the same. He had blue and green inside.

Other products in this scent: Softy, Eyeball, Powder Puff, Noriko soap, and the Valentine 2022 ‘Rose’ soap

Here is a Tub Demo Video that i made for you

Sleepy bath bomb

This is one of many products only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar gift set.

Lush Uk had a Sleepy pop up event in September October 2021 time frame. They had many exclusive Sleepy products not available in stores. This Sleepy bomb was one of them. Lush Uk decided to add it to the Christmas Advent Calendar gift set as an exclusive amongst all the other goodies in the calendar gift set.

See below for my 3 minute Tub Demo Video.

Sleepy bomb reminds me of the Lush Uk ‘Sleeping Giant’ bath bomb. I think Sleepy bomb is a miniature version of it.

This Sleepy bomb has such a gorgeous periwinkle blue color! 😍

Sleepy is a quiet, slow melting kind of bomb, not the fast fizzing type.

It looks like some kind of melting blackberry dessert doesn’t it? 😊

There’s a bit of very dark blue almost black color inside the bath bomb that’s surprising.

There are multiple colors in here, violet, lilac, black, gold. Lots of bath art opportunities 😄

The gold is actually shimmery stuff. And the gold shimmer gets dispersed in the purple water and it’s just beautiful.

I’d rate this a 5 out of 5 rating.

These aren’t like the Lush halloween 2021 products which glow under UV light. These are glow in the dark. Here is what the stars and moon look when you turn off the lights.

Some folks were asking me what these moon and stars are made out of. Many folks thought they were a bath melt as i did, but they are made out of what feels like plastic. They don’t melt.

Twilight

This above is ‘Twilight’ bath bomb sold in Lush stores. The ‘Sleepy’ bomb is the same scent. Both made with floral Ylang Ylang , Sweet creamy Tonka bean, and Bright herbal Lavendar. I asked the creator Alessandro and he stated that ‘Yes. They are the same scent’, just different names. Not complaining. I’d love to use both of these in a bath cocktail. Unfortunately there is only one in the Advent Calendar gift set.

You Shall Go to the Ball

5 out of 5 see my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below

Looking like Cinderella’s carriage, i love the new Strawberry scent. Its different than any other Lush strawberry scent. Its almost like they mixed lush rose jam and lush strawberry twin tub jelly. Those notes mixed together.

I don’t think i’ve ever seen any Lush bath bomb that was so intricately designed. And the color combination of that shade of pink with a beautiful dusting of gold.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Tonka Absolute, Soybean Flour, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Talc, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Dipropylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Tin Oxide, Coumarin, Geraniol, *Limonene, Colour 47005:1, Colour 45410:1, Colour 45410:2, Colour 45410, Colour 15850:1, Colour 77491, Colour 17200

After my bath i ordered 3 more of this bath bomb. Who knows. i might buy more right before they go away in January.

This is a slow melty foamed type of bath bomb. I love that type. Those usually have the best bath art.

I noticed that this has pink shimmer in the water as well as gold shimmer! It doesn’t stick to your skin which is good. It’s not the most glitter i’ve seen in a lush bath bomb but it’s not the least amount either.

The pink and yellow combine to make a deep orange colored water, with pink and gold sparkles.

Merry Christmas shower gel

5 out of 5 rating

See my 4 minute Up close sink demo where i wash my hands with it and you can see how much lather it has, how thick it is, etc.

Lush has created three new Christmas shower gels this year which are different than anything theyve made before. One of them is only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar Gift. There are 6-8 exclusive Christmas products only available in the Advent calendar.

Merry Christmas shower gel is quite a surprise to me. There are so many things about it that i like.

The color is a rich red, and it has gold sparkles in it. They settle at the bottom but i just shake it up to distribute the sparkke all throughout the shower gel.

Goodness. It looks like a ruby in the sun.

The scent is another surprise. It smells like a cherry. A chocolate covered cherry. It has a scent very similar to the Lush ‘Cherryish’ bodyscrub.

The ingredients are Aloe, Cocoa Absolute (chocolate), and Almond Oil. Its no wonder it smells like cherry.

The consistency is nice and thick.

I wish it was a bigger size. I love it.

It is pretty sweet. Some might find it too sweet. I dont find this to be the case. But i like things like Lush ‘Happy Blooming’ scent, which some find too sweet.

I pray that Lush will make this as an ‘in stores and online’ shower gel next Christmas.

Heres a video showing the consistency, lather, etc

The Big Snow Fairy Roll

The Big Snow Fairy Roll is new. It’s a 1 kilo version of the Snow Fairy Roll. The ‘regular size’ Snow Fairy Roll is like two regular bubble bars and THIS Big SFR is even more huge.

Its the same size as this Big Comforter in my phoro below.

Ectoplasm slime

i have two videos below showing what the Lush shower slimes are like close up.

Made for the first time this year (as a limited edition) for the Lush Christmas 2021 holiday.

There is an Ectoplasm shower gel that Lush made for Halloween a couple of years ago. I thought this was a wonderful new citrus scent for Lush. I asked for a perfume of this. And i must have not been the only one because soon thereafter Lush made an Ectoplasm liquid spray perfume and a body spray. Lush also made a bath bomb called Ectoplasm first. And a few years ago Lush made a solid puzzle bath oil called Tree-D (a play on the words 3D).

So now Lush is making an Ectoplasm Slime.

The scent is very citrussy. It’s a different scent than all the many other Lush citrus scents. I absolutely adore it. This has an addictive, tart effervescent scent of grapefruit and tangerine. It smells like fizzy soda. Moreso than Bubble or Celebrate imo. Ectoplasm isnt as sweet as those.

My husband has a little UV light (or black light) and he pointed it towards the container and WOW!

I took a photo of the Ectoplasm products
Ectoplasm body spray

Ectoplasm slime is the fourth slime that Lush has made. I’m going to attach videos of the other slimes that i bought when Lush made them. All 3 slimes have been exclusive and one was sold as a limited edition for Halloween. Two of them came out at the same time; ‘Brr’ and ‘Bam’. One was minty and one had the same scent as Lush ‘Nevermind the Ballistics’.

Lush also made a black slime with the snow fairy scent, and a pink slime with the snow fairy scent.

So the Ectoplasm slime will be the same consistency of these other slimed in the videos, only it will be highlighter green/yellow and it is fluorescent under black light.

Heres my Demo video of Ectoplasm slime

The North Pole

4 out of 5 rating. See my demo video below.

This has a nice light bakery kind of scent. Its similar to Lush Snowcake scent but not exactly. It smells like vanilla icing. Its not really spicy. It has white shimmer on the outside of the bubble bar. The bath melt sign is where all the gold glitter shimmer comes from.

Glitter
Lots of bubbles

Video

Snowball (Yukigassen)

This has a pretty light dusting of white glitter only here and there on the outside of the bomb. However i wasnt able to see any glitter in the water to speak of.

This is so refreshing, and the blue color is so.pretty. ididnt see a whole lot of glitter in the water though.

Im sorry about the noise of the wind in the video, it was VERY windy when i took this bath. 😊

Demo Video

Snow Fairy Lights

see my 3 minute tub demo video below

New for 2021

I like these style of ‘Amazeball’ bath bomb, which all have a hollowed out core with other tiny bath bombs inside, and a top.

Love Locket,. Fly Me To The Moon, Snow Fairy, Don’t Let the Bells End, and Holly Golightly are all this type of hollowed out bath bomb.

The time has come to be true to yourself. The Snow Fairy is here to shine a light on the courage, kindness, and confidence within you. 

How to use: 
Fill your bath, sprinkle the bath confetti, add the shell and/or stopper and enjoy a fabulously softening experience. With a new 3-in-1 design, perfect for your Secret Santa pick. 

How to store: 
Keep cool and dry before you are ready for a sweet-scented light show.

Did you know?
Over 25 years ago we invented the bath bomb. Our fizzing bicarb beauties provide an immersive aromatherapeutic bathtime like no other. All this and no packaging too…

SnowCake Jelly Stack

4 out of 5 rating. See my demo video below

When you are feeling wobbly reach for one of these three shower jelly discs layered in one pot of joy. Pick from marzipan, toffee or cherry to your skin’s desire.

How to use:
Wibble the jelly disc over your body and hair for a skin-softening wash. You can use it at room temperature, cool it in the fridge or even in the freezer for the ultimate invigorating shower.

The two that i bought didnt make it in my box, so i emailed Lush and showed them my order and packing slip. Thryre going to resend. Its taking awhile 😏

I like the cherry scented one most. Ilike the way each of them smell individually by themselves. When i smell them all in the same container its kind of overwhelming.

Ingredients

Glycerine, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Maple Syrup Water, Almond Milk, Cherry Infusion, Carrageenan Extract, Perfume, Lime Oil, Almond Essential Oil, Davana Oil, Rose Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Calamine Powder, Titanium Dioxide, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Silica, *Citral, Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 77007, Colour 77491

Golden Pear body scrub

5 out of 5 – see my close up sink demo below 😊

Time to scrub up? Pop into the shower and let the sea salt and prickly pear oil do the hard work, leaving you with softer skin. Listen out for crackle-ingly good shower ASMR with this natural exfoliator.

How to use: 
Wet your bar, rub between your hands and scrub using the pressure you like. Cut in two before you use or use whole bar for an indulgent pear-scented treat.

How to store:
Keep somewhere cool and dry until ready. This is enough for two full body scrubs so pop in a dish between uses.

i was very excited to buy golden pear scrub. i love all the lush golden pear products. It’s made with real pear. And i cannot resist bath bombs that look like fruit. And a gold one? Yeah, i’m not made of wood people.

If you’ve tried the Golden Pear body spray or jelly, you know that these two have a very strong astringent alcohol-y note to it. This isn’t the case with the scrub. The scrub smells more like the Golden Pear soap, bath bomb and bubble bar.

After using my skin is smooth, soft and moisturized, while also smelling like a pear. It’s conditioning without being too much.

As you can see in my video my arm didnt have any noticeable glitter when i was done.

Ingredients

Fine Sea Salt, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Sodium Bicarbonate, Popping Candy, Cupuaçu Butter, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cream of Tartar, Pear Powder, Organic Jojoba Oil, Coarse Sea Salt, Cardamom Oil, Brazilian Orange Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Prickly Pear oil, Titanium Dioxide, Lauryl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Silica, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Coumarin, *Limonene, Perfume, Colour 77492, Colour 77491

Rangoli Dreams

5 out of 5 rating (WOW) See my TubbDemo & Scent description video below.

The first time i saw this, on a lush store instagram account, and i thought to myself ‘oh my God what a beautiful bomb.’

Lush description: Watch colours of orange, red and gold glide across your bath as you sink into skin softening waters with rice starch and coconut milk powder. Lie back and listen to the firework-like crackle whilst you inhale the scent of decadent floral rose and rich cardamom.

Rangoli is an art form originating in the Indian subcontinent on certain holidays, in which patterns are created on the floor or a tabletop using materials such as powdered lime stone, red ochre, dry rice flour, coloured sand, quartz powder, flower petals, and coloured rocks.

The smell is delicate, but GORGEOUS. Pure rose, cardamom (which i love), mandarin oil, almond essential oil, coconut powder, benzoin. It a delicate, softly sweet rose, a drop of fragrant and yummy cardamom and a half drop of almond essential oil.

As it starts foaming and dissolving a lovely striped pattern of gold, orange and red foam appeared. The popping candy is slow popping, it doesn’t distract from the poetic loveliness of this bomb.

I don’t know why i took it out to set it on the side of the tub and take a picture. But here’s that. 😄

This is a slow melter type of lush bomb. I love the gradient colors of foamy stripes in my photo below.

Golden glitter appears in the water when the bomb is all dissolved.

It’s altogether lovely, romantic, festive and yummy.

I need to buy 7.

My 3 minute Tub Demo Video

Plum Duff shower gel

3 out of 5. See my Demo and Review Video below

This is one of three shower gels for Christmas 2021.

The ingredients list lists raisins as the first ingredients. Raisins? I don’t recall any raisins being in the original Plum Duff but 🤷🏼‍♀️

i LOVE this scent. It’s like a sexy but berryish and slightly sweet. Not citrussy, but fruity somewhat like The Comforter is fruity. Its got that same note that is in the Comforter shower gel that some people dont like. It’s a different scent than all the other Lush scent. At one time this was my FAVORITE. It was made in 1999.
😊it’s got tangerine and sandalwood in it as i recall.

like sexy sandalwood mixed with cotton candy or something.

But this Plum Duff shower gel isnt exactly like the original. But its still nice. Its a different scent for Lush Christmas shower gel, which i appreciate.

Here is the Plum Duff scent family

Plum Duff, Sugar Plum, Plum Duff letters, It’s a Date

Here is my demo and review video

Golden Pudding

Its alright. Its certainly pretty. I like when Lush changes it up sometumes. For instance Lush made tge Luxury Lush Pud one year with the twilight scent and one year with the Comforter scent. I liked surprises like that. But…. This wasnt just changing the scent of something. This is melding the look of two completely different bath bombs. Which can be fun. Except when they replace the mermaid blue and gold water of Golden Wonder to a peach colored water with no sparkle.

Lush has released the ‘Golden Wonder’ bomb for Christmas every year for the past 10+ years. Why? Because its very popular. Whats not to love, it was a gold present.

So while i like a change i do wish they would bring the two original bombs back next Christmas 2022.

This is to replace the Golden Wonder Christmas bomb which has been sold every year for Christmas for the last 15 years or so. It looked like a gold Christmas present. And it had the Lush Champagne Snow Showers/Celebrate scent, which is a fizzy grapefruit or orange scent.

This Golden Pudding is like if Lush Luxury Pud and Golden Wonder had a baby.

Sleepy Bear

3.5 out of 5 rating. Having the Lush Sleepy/Twilight scent. See my relaxing 3 minute Tub demo video below.

Tiny purple Lavender petals which Lush has coated in purple bath oil. I love when Lush is innovative.

I’m going to use it in the next couple of days and will record a Tub Demo Video of this Sleepy Bear so we can see what it does in the tub and what color it makes.

I would rate this a 3.5 out of 5 rating
It’s cute, it has the Sleepy lavender, ylang ylang and tonka bean scent.
It has oatmeal in it for soothing the skin.
It doesn’t color the water.
No glitter.

I had one together with a Lush Hippopotamus bath bomb.

Santa’s Magic Sleigh

This is a fun 3 in 1 bath bomb for Christmas 2021. There are three pieces, and each piece has its own color and scent. The tellow sleigh is comfortrr’ scent which smells like ribe berries. The red santa is made with Snow Fairy scent.

I took a series of progressive photos below showing how it looks as it dissolves.

Its one of those fast fizzy bonbs that lush make, nit the slow foamy ones. That said for being a madly fizzing kind it does make decent bath art because of the different colored bomb.

The outcome is a deep orange bath water.

Id rate this a 5 out of 5 because i likethe new 3 in 1 idea, and for making different parts to have different scents. So you can use parts of it per bath or you can use it all at once.

Coconut Snow

4 out of 5

This not what i would call a coconut smelling body lotion. It’s not like the coco lotion from long ago. This me scent of this Lush Coconut Snow is a lemony floral. It’s got coconut cream in it. As a matter of fact it’s the first ingredient.

I got one in my Lush monthly subscription box

Update: As of December 2021 Lush has added Coconut Snow to our monthly subscription box. So i will be able to finally try this myself and take pictures and videos of it. Very soon, within two days. Yay!! i’m so surprised and excited!

This was a lotion previously only available in the Christmas 2020 Advent calendar gift box.

It’s made with Rose, Coconut and Lemongrass.
