It has the scent of ylang ylang flower, patchouli, lemongrass and Ho wood. It smells like an expensive mens cologne or something. I love the scent.
Also, the scent has somestaying power after you use it which i like.
I Would give this a high rating because its really cute, it works well without drying my skin, it smells great and the scent lasts.
Its scent is from another product that Lush made before they called themselves Lush, when they were a company called Cosmetics To Go in the 90’s. The product was called ‘Damp Squid’ and it was a bath bomb.
I still have my old pictures of my Damp Squid bath bomb.
This deliciously self-centred chocolate body wash is packed with aloe vera and glycerine to soften and hydrate delicate skin.
How to use:
Completely vegan friendly, this is a great body wash for dry skin. Scoop out a good handful and inhale the rich cocoa aroma while you work it all over your body then rinse off.
100% RECYCLED POT
Deliciously hydrating and softening. Thisis the best product Lush has created in quite awhile. This smells more like straight up chocolate than any of the other chocolate things that Lush has made. It does remind me of the scent of Lush Walter Bunny scrub.
I describe the texture in my video below but it feels like a chocolate mouse in thepot and feels like silk when you rub it on your body.
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.
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.
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
Lush introduced this bath bomb around 2008 or 2009. That’s when i had my first Twilight bomb. The name comes from the time there was a very popular new movie called ‘Twilight’.
When Lush first made their Twilight bath bomb it was very popular with Lushies, and its maintained the same popularity ever since.
Not only does it look like the night sky (twilight) with stars and moons on the outside of the bomb, it also makes two different colors in the tub as it dissolves; pink and blue, but it also has a beautiful silver shimmer in the water. The blue and pink eventually mix in the water to become a lavender color.
Then there is the scent. Its a genius mix of bright herbal fragrance of lavender which promotes relaxation and sleep but there is also Tonka bean which smells similar to vanilla bean but tonka is more of a caramely scent. Then lastly there is the lovely floral notefrom the ylang ylang flower. The twilight fragrance is only subtley sweet and comforting.
Its such a gorgeous scent that Lush has used in many other products that i’ll list below which they have made. I also show these products in my scent family photos below.
Lush Times: Everyone seems to be in love with twilight at the moment. Whether it’s the film series or that enchanting period betwixt day and night, we can’t work it out. If you’re stressed out and feeling like a member of the un-dead, this relaxing ballistic will stake all of your troubles and scatter them to the winds with scents of lavender and Ovaltine.
The wiggly nature of the jelly makes a great octopus 😄
Firstly, i was pleasantly surprised that this smells so good.
I figured it would be a scent already seen in a jelly. But its a great scent of passion fruit, black currant, vanilla and orange.
It smells like a fruit candy, but not in a fake candyish way. Its a natural sweet, fruity fragrance.
This afternoon I was told by Alessandro the Creator of this Lush Monster Octopus jelly that it’s “Not the scent of Very Very Frightening shower gel, It’s a new fragrance. Similar to the old passion fruit lip balm, but it’s actually new.”
I love the color! Red and purple are my favorite colors. Its got No glitter for anyone who is curious.
Ive discovered that the Octopus tentacles make it easier to hold on to when using it.
You can use it at room temperature, cooled in the fridge on hot days, or even frozen.
Ive used the other Lush jellies by slicing into small pieces and putting about a tablespoon in a plastic kitchen seive and hold the seive under the stream of water coming out of the faucet. And down below at water level it stsrts to make a light foam.
But with this here Monster Octopus jelly I just held the whole dang thing in the faucet stream. 😄 And it worked nicely. Its also easier to hold the whole thing in the shower too to wash with it like a bar of soap.
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.
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
These are the Christmas products that are exclusive to the UK. USA didn’t do anything like this i guess. 🤷🏽♀️
Do Not look any further if you want the lush Christmas products to be a surprise. 😊
I’ve reviewed and have demo videos here of all the returning Christmas products. The Halloween 2021 products are here
I’ll be adding what kind of products these are very soon and group them by category ‘bombs, bubble bars, soaps’, etc. Then as usual i’ll be adding each product picture, description, scent family, etc. during the next days all the way up to Christmas.
Products will be available to purchase on the UK site the third week of September.
Alien bubble bar. Made for the first time for Winter Holiday 2021.
The thing about the Alien bubble bar is that you have to use it before it starts fading in color. This is because the color of the water won’t be this lovely bright green color, instead it will be a dark yellow color.
If the green color fades a bit the color of the water is going to be this:
When the bar hasnt faded the water is more green
the scent is so nice! it’s a citrus scent with a green note.
Prepare to be transported to another world with mountains of uplifting and zesty bubbles. New dimensions await as neon waters refresh and revive with uplifting bergamot and litsea cubeba.
How to use: Crumble a little or the whole thing under running water for juicy, fruity neon water and out of this world bubbles.
How to store: Keep cool and dry until ready for UFO sightings and extra-terrestrial bathing.
