Violet Cream

Violet Cream bubble bars

This is a new bubble bar for Mother’s Day 2021. Mother’s Day comes earlier in Europe than it is here in the U.S.

I think that, because of the remarkable design of it, and the lovely sweet violet scent, this is one of the best bubble bars Lush has made in years.

It’s a regular squishy bubble bar, not a reusable.

It’s just like a cream violet, it’s even got some cream in the middle.

Even though there is a mesmerizing green-blue colored glitter on the outside, this bar doesn’t make glittery water, in case you were curious.

Thi bar is worthy of my buying six more of them.

I’ll keep them in my dark closet or my dark lingerie drawer so the color stays as long as possible and i’ll keep them in something air tight so they don’t harden up.

These are only available for a limited time basis, just for Mother’s Day 2021.

This bubble bar makes lots of creamy bubbles.

Lush How to use suggestions:
Crumble under running water and allow the uplifting violet and bergamot scented bubbles to build on top of skin-softening lilac waters.
Smell familiar? This bubble bar shares a scent with our Daddy-o shampoo and conditioner range.

Lush How to store suggestions:
Like any soft-centred treat, keep cool and dry until the moment of indulgence and feel good knowing the rose absolute is sourced from our regenerative rose projectin Pakistan.

Winter Garden bath bomb

4 out of 5 rating

see my tub demo video below

Winter garden reminds me of an old school Lush bath bomb. Back then their bones didn’t really make ‘bath art’ with the foam, in fact they weren’t foamy they were fizzy only. And the bombs would have flowers or other things in them.

Winter Garden bath bomb is like this. It’s a smaller bomb, like the size of the Butterball bath bomb from Lush.

It looks like fairies made it, it’s tiny, real pink, yellow and blue flower petals in it. It smells like a fairy garden too. A brilliant floral scent that is new.

It doesn’t color the water. What it lacks in size it makes up for in scent. So pretty that Lush asked everyone to vote for five new body sprays and what fragrances we would like and Wintergarden was one of the five that won and was made into a body spray.

I would rate this a 4 out of 5. I liked it so much i bought two more.

Lush Winter Garden body spray

Winter garden body spray is one of five exclusive new December 2020 body sprays out of nine that we voted on via the Lush Labs site. Winter Garden scent is from the Christmas 2020 bath bomb of the same name. Lush hasn’t made this scent before in a bath bomb, body spray nor any product.

It’s always exciting when Lush creates a new product with a new scent that has a really great scent. Winter Garden bath bomb is this kind of product, so it’s no wonder we voted for this to be made into a body spray.

Winter Garden is a floral scent with the primary note of ylang ylang. It smells pretty. It’s a somewhat more complex floral scent to my nose than some other Lush florals. Winter florals are represented here, on top of the bath bomb are yellow, pink and blue flower petals. They look so small and delicate and perfect, like fairies placed them there.

I sprayed a good single spray on each fore arm. Right off the bat the scent of different kinds of flowers came alive on my skin. It made me go ‘oooh!’. You have to love the scent of flowers to like this body spray, so if you’re not a florals person you may want to smell this in store if you can first. there is no citrus, fruity notes in this fragrance. Nothing that smells sweet nor anything bakery like. it’s not earthy smelling at all, nor are there any green or woody notes that i can pick out. Just a beautiful layering of florals. It’s smells like a winter wedding bouquet.

While i do like citrus scent,and all scents actually, i am a florals person by nature. Some of my most favorite Lush perfumes and Lush bath products have floral scents. Lush doesn’t make them too much anymore like they used to in the early 2000’s.

That’s why this body spray fragrance is so special to me.

It’s dried down on my arm now and it’s still quiet strong. It still maintains the complexity of the fragrance. it gets a wee bit more powdery as it dries, which is nice actually, it’s not so alcohol-y as it was when wet.

the use by date is October 2024

I will say that the scent is very ylang ylang forward. So if you don’t like ylang ylang..

I always have my husband smell it too and tell me what it smells like to him. My husband said he couldn’t quite tell but that it was nice. i said ‘it’s floral’. I knew he had bad experiences with florals. He tells me of when he was young and his school teacher used to come to his desk wearing a floral perfume that was so obnoxious it made him sick. When i asked him tonight’s s this perfume like your teachers floral perfume?’ He said ‘not at all’. I take that as a good sign. 🙂

I would recommend this. And i would rate it a 4 out of 5 rating.

Here’s a video that i created where i review, describe, rate each of the five new body sprays including Winter Garden.

Space Girl body spray

Space Girl body spray and Space Girl bath bomb

Space Girl body spray was one of ten favorite Lush product fragrances that Lush had us vote from during their LushLabs voting. Space Girl was one of the five winning product fragrances with the most votes.

I’ve always loved the Space Girl bath bomb when it was sold in stores and i was so bummed when Lush discontinued it. It was made with Black currant, Grapefruit, and bergamot. And it was a pale lilac color with silver glitter mixed in and red glitter dust on top to simulate the planet saturn and its red dust rings. Once inside the water it would release a red glitter which would look like a comet on the bottom of the tub. SO cool.

The space girl fragrance is a fruity scent. It’s citrussy and berryish. Citrussy because of the grapefruit and bergamot, and berryish because of the black currant. Black currant is the main ingredient in ‘The Comforter’ just for reference.

black currant
bergamot
grapefruit
almond essential oil

When i first spray the body spray on my arms it’s of course very strongly scented and alcohol-y. Also, when it’s wet i find that acrid note that some people find off putting in black currant. But once the body spray starts the dry down process on my skin-that acrid note disappears and just the fruity goodness remains.

The almond oil that Lush added to the body spray is nice. It adds a smooth and slightly sweet note to the fruity mix of citrus and berryliciousness.

As far as staying power this is better than most at staying true to it’s fragrance for any length of time once it dries down on the skin.

There’s a somewhat bitter note in between the fruity goodness. So it keeps the fragrance from being too sweet. The resulting scent reminds me of raspberry candy of some sort.

It’s not as sweet and fruity as Roller/Yummy Mummy for instance, but it’s more fruity and sweet than Sparkly Pumpkin.

I would recommend this if you like fruity scents that are different citrus/berry blends.

The scent lasts longer on the skin than Ectoplasm body spray, and about the same as the three others.

These are other Lush products with the same scent

Goth Fairy Sparkle massage bar

And a new Lush Harajuku special edition bubble bar for 2020 sold on the Lush UK and the Lush USA web sites.

I would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.

Here’s a video where i spray on, review and describe these five body sprays.

Castle In The Clouds

This has the same scent as the Lush ‘Strawberry Twin Tub’ shower jellie/‘Two Timing Tart’ scent of Jasmine and Strawberry.

A floral fantasy

‘Ello! Have things been getting wild? Well chilly down in your very own labyrinth of bubbles. This ain’t no bog of eternal stench, instead, upon crumbling this bubble bar into the water you’ll be greeted by a sweet and fruity fragrance, surrounded by delicate lilac waters. Bath magic, bath!

You’ll love this if you like:

– A fantastical floral fragrance of geranium and jasmine. – Rock Star soap or Scrub Scrub Scrub shower scrub. – Crystalline, sparkling bubbles.

Half the bar or even less would’ve been enough bubbles.

The sparkly blue water is gorgeous.

I would rate it a 5 out of 5

Benefits:

– Find balanced and toned skin in floral geranium oil.

– Valentine evenings await with deep and heady jasmine absolute, renowned for its aphrodisiac effects. -You don’t have to face winter skin alone; calamine powder soothes and calms to gently cleanse and soften.

How to use: If you’re looking for a Ludo bubbles, Hoggle down into the bath and crumble a little, or a lot, of this castle under running water.

Holy Moly! Next time i’ll only put half the bar in.

How to store: Hide your Castle In The Clouds away in a cool, dry location until you can bear it no longer and simply must steal away to the bath.

Here’s my 4 minute tub demo of it

Carrot shower oil

3 out of 5 rating

See my sink/arm Demo in my Review Video below.

I demonstrate using it on my arm at the sink.

was x

Lush ‘Carrot solid shower oil.

This was made for Easter 2017 or 18. Carrot was one of the last solid shower oils Lush made before they discontinued them.

Lush had a goodly amount of customers that didn’t like the new solid shower oils. A large amount of customers were not living for the new wave of Lush ‘naked’ products coming out at the time.

I didn’t mind the shower oils too much. I have dry skin and live in the desert so i would use it after i took a shower and my skin would feel pretty good and not greasy.

The shower oils were used kind of like the lush Avocado Co Wash for the hair. You wash in the shower as usual, then after you rinse the soap off your body, rub the solid shower oil on your bod, then rinse off.

Some folks skipped the washing with regular soap or shower gel part, which is like co washing.

It has a nice carrot-y almost floral perfume-y scent.

I have a sink demo video on youtube of carrot shower oil.

Strawberry Santa

5 out of 5 rating

See my short demo video below

This wonderful holiday limited edition soap for 2018 has the scent of ‘Yummy yummy yummy’ shower gel and ‘Peeping Santa’ bubble bar.

This is one of those soaps that is almost too cute to use.

That cocoa butter cream in the middle looks delicous.

I was wondering how it’s shape would be condusive to washing. However it was just a matter of holding it in more of a cupping fashion.

The scent is surprisingly and pkeasantly strong. Thank goodness.

It really is a more moisturizing soap because of the conditioning cocoa butter in the soap.

Its made with fresh strawberries, geranium, and frankincense. This gives it a fruity, sweet, but equally floral and resinous scent.

The combination is addictive.

I have used every Lush Yummy yummy yummy scented product that Lush has made in the past and this soap does not dissappoint.

Its not as sweet as say the ‘snow fairy’ soap but almost. Its one of the sweetest soaps this holiday.

This is a soap that smells so good, works so well at moisturizing, is cute, that i would have to buy 3-5 of these.

Here is a review i recorded of this soap

Description: The weather outside may be frightful but Christmas showers have never been so delightful. What better way to finish off a great feast than with a creamy dessert, sandwiched between a cocktail of fresh strawberry juice and uplifting bergamot oil. Not to be mistaken for food, take this soapy little fellow and lather up under sweet suds of calming olibanum oil and conditioning peach kernel oil. Santa’s wearing a new suit this year, it’s strawberry sweet and totally unique. Hold him upright in your hand and massage into your palm to build up a lather that Father Christmas would be proud of.

List of ingredients

Goddess (formerly God is a Woman)

5 out of 5. Made with the Lush “Zen” soap scent. I describe the scent in my “Lush Goddess” perfume video below.

I bought exclusive Lush iron on patches of ‘Goddess’ at the 2018 Lush Creative Showcase for £3.00

Made with the Lush ‘Zen’ soap scent. I describe the scent more in my video and review below.

This bath bomb was originally created by Jack Constantine for Ariana Grande after he saw her video for her song ‘God is a Woman’.

In my video demo of mine in the tub below i also recorded a video of the giant one that was on display at the Creative Showcase event. I got real close so you can see the foam spewing out!

Jack mimicked the gorgeous muted colors of blue, lilac, gray, silver, green in the video within this bath bomb.

Also striking is the ethereal nature from silver and lavender shimmer powder.

Its scent is a combination of earthy,green and floral. It smells like it looks if that makes sense. I think Jack did an excellent job of creating the feel and vibe of Ariana’s video into this bath bomb’s look and scent.

initially this was going to be given to folks who bought tickets to attend the 2028 Lush Creative Showcase in Manchester England.

On the second day they were selling these along with the other exclusive items in the holiday products area. so that was nice that anyone attending eventually had a chance to purchase one.

naturally i purchased as many as i could fit in my bag so i could bring back for my friends and fellow bloggers who didnt get one.

Harajuku

5 out of 5 rating. i would give it a 6 if i could.

This is an exclusive bath bomb given to me by Jack Constantine, main inventor for Lush Uk.

Harajuku is an area in Japan, in a district of Tokyo. Many people ferl Harajuku is the epitome for what is popular right now with youth in Japan. Bright colors and fantasy fashion, shops, themed restaurants, cosplay clubs, etc.

The colors of the bath bomb are seen a lot in the Harajuku clothing and streetstyle.

Lush made this bath bomb with an absolutely ADDICTIVE scent of bubblegum. its a bit fruitier spiceier than regular bubblegum.

Here is a video tub demo i recorded of Harajuku.

the bomb fizzes for quite a long while. i enjoyed rubbing the pink bubblegum scented foam on my arms and legs.

the smell was so good i did NOT want to get out.

The final results are a lovely peach colored water with silver sparkle.

Scrub Scrub Scrub

4 out of 5 rating

Scrub scrub scrub is one of two new scrubs that Lush uk has made for 2018.

As i said in my review video, i like using this scrub scrub scrub more than the new magic crystals scrub.

The color of magic crystals scrub is a prettier color but i like using scrub scrub more.

Although this one is drier and thus more challenging to use, it doesnt sting like the magic crystals scrub which is wetter and easier to apply.

I like this smell. Its not quite the Comforter scent.

Its got a vaguely fruity blackberry scent. I like the scent, its comforting.

It has currant in it, like the comforter but it doesnt have the same scent.

For starters, there’s no bergamot nor cypress in it like there is in the comforter.

Also, scrub scrub scrub has pine, rosemary oil, and Buchu oil, which the Comforter doesnt have.

Its got the same size scrubbies that magic crystals has. One is not coarser than the other.

If youre very fair don’t leave the scrub on your skin for very long.

I would give this scrub a 4 out of 5 rating.

I like other companies vegan, cruelty free scrubs better.

Here’s a video where i show it up close

Under the Umbrella Tree

I would rate this bath bomb a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a cute bath bomb.   I love the tree shape of it.

This was made with the Lush “Breath of God’ fragrance.

The fragrance is a combination of two Lush scents “Inhale’ and ‘Exhale’.

There are masculine notes such as cedar wood, sandalwood,, and feminine notes such as rose. Together they form the classic Breath of God fragrance, which Lush has sold since 2008. Men would like it but women would like it too It’s both earthy and airy in the same fragrance.

Lush has made a bath bomb In the past called “Inhale Exhale‘ with a similar fragrance.

The bath bomb is a fast fizzes and makes a beautiful, not often seen, lime green water.  So uplifting and hopeful, like Spring.

 

Bearded Lady

4 out of 5 rating

Fruity and woody.

Made with the same ingredients as Lush ‘King of Skin’ body conditioner.

It has banana in it for moisturizing properties. It also has oat milk. It doesnt necessarily smell like banana though. It has sandalwood for starters, which i love, but it makes the scent of this slightly woody and nice.

I love king of skin bar so its no wonder i like the scent of this.

Its cute for Christmas.

Originally it was released in 2005/2006 and i bought one then via lush uk.

And then in 2017 the Lush Kitchen re-made it for us to buy, which is where i got this one.

ngredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Potassium bitartrate), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Titanium Dioxide, Oat Milk (Avena sativa), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Fresh Organic Bananas (Musa paradisica), Fresh Organic Avocado (Persea gratissima), Sandalwood Oil (Santalum austro-caledonicum vieill and Fusanus spicatus), Tangerine Oil (Citrus reticulata), Rosewood Oil (Aniba rosaeodora), Lavender Oil (Lavandula angustifolia), Cocamide DEA, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 14700, Dairy Free Chocolate Drops

I used one in a bath cocktail wuth other Lush things in my photo below.

Lush Times: Our Lady has moisturising oat milk to keep skin soft when it’s dry in autumn and winter; there are fresh avocados and bananas, and jojoba and almond oils to soften you up when you have your winter baths. 

Lemon bubble brush

3 out of 5 rating

Lemon bubble brush is one of three new re-usable style bubble bars from Lush. While i dont normally like the reusables as much as Lush regular squishy bubble bars, these new bubble brushes are fun to use!

This is the yellow bubble brush new for 2018. Unlike its blue and pink counterparts this one smells lemony. It has the same scent as Lush ‘Lemslip’ buttercream. Its made with lime, and sweet orange oil.

It’s not very sweet. In fact i wish it were more sweet. And honestly, i wish it smelled stronger.

It leaves a bright, sunny yellow hue to the bath water.

I like to blend it with the blue bubble brush sometimes.

I like the mint and candy bubble brushes more than this yellow lemon one because the scents and colors are nicer to me. Just a personal preference.

I liked using it but i wouldn’t necessarily buy another one. Whereas i would buy anothrr blue one.

The Candy bubble brush is my second favorite bubble brush.

Candy bubble brush is made with the Lush ‘Candy Fluff’ scent. synthetic musk is used in this because in order to use real musk the animal is killed.

i like this one because the scent is sweet and nice like some kind of pink candy.

Heres a video i made where i demo all of the bubble brushes including the Pink Candy bubble brush

I can use it by itself to make a pink color or i sometimes like to mix colors as below

Can’t decide which one to go for? As the saying goes – different strokes for different folks, which is why there’s a palette of three colours to Picasso from (but it wouldn’t Erté to try them all).

Pink Petigrain

2 out of 5 rating

This is the most bitter thing I’ve ever smelled in a long time.

I wanted to like this because its so pretty.

Pink petigrain is supposed to share its scent with the Lush madame president bath bomb. Grapefruit and petigrain.

What in the actual…?

I said to myself ‘There is NO WAY my petigrain flower smells like madame president bath bomb’.

Firstly, i LOVE the scent of Madame President.

I bought six of them.

Secondly, i HATE the scent of this Pink Petigrain blossom.

When i got it out of my package my eyes lit up because of the pretty coral color and the flower shape.

But i recoiled back when my nose smelled it.

How do we explain that?

Maybe because some things melted in my order the scents combined strangely? Dunno.

I was so adament i said i dont even care if Mark or Jack C themselves tell me it is.

I have both Madame President bomb & Pink Petitgrain blossom bubnle bar side by side. NO.

I don’t know if i got a bad one or what but no. Mmmkay. Just *NO*.

Did my nose just all of a sudden after 17 years just say ‘April, i’m done.’? I’m not sure, but suffice it to say i dont like the bitter, unpleasant smell of this bubble bar, and i won’t be buying another one. I had to use something else with it because i couldnt stand the smell. How odd. I havent had a reaction to a lush product in quite sometime. But i guess i cant like them all. *Shrug*

Your mileage may vary.

Description

For a couple of hours, lay back and indulge in pink waters covered in soft, fluffy bubbles. Calming petitgrain oil works its wonders on worries and cares, the woody scent evoking images of summer walks through citrus groves. Meanwhile, refreshing grapefruit oil lifts moods high above the clouds of the day, bringing with it memories of breakfasts taken on warm, sunlit verandas. Hold this flower under running water and let it spin and build bubbles before breathing deeply and allowing yourself to be transported away on a cheerful, summer breeze.

Mint bubble brush

Mint bubble brush is one of three new ‘bubble brush’ design type of re-usable bubble bars from Lush Cosmetics.

Lush has come out with five new re-usable bubble bars, three of them being in the bubble brush type. Mint is the blue one. Its got a minty scent that isnt too sweet. In fact i i wish it were a *bit* more sweet. Its the scent of their ‘Freeze’ shower gel.

Its not quite like Christingle body conditioner. Mint bubble brush isnt that sweet. Its the scent of their ‘Freeze’ shower gel.

I love the deep blue hue one can attain with this bubble bar. Its tun to drip blotches of blue on the bubbles. And it’s fun to paint the bubbles as i show in the video.

I enjoy combining colors, as those of you who have seen my bath cocktails know. I often like to create gradients or ombre effects with different bath products.

Well these new Lush bubble bars lend themselves well to this kind of blending, as ive tried to show below.

I think these new bubble brush bars are quite fun. I like that the three primary colors are represented. I would give these bubble brush bars a 4 out of 5. While i don’t particularly like the re-usable bubble bars as much as the regular lush bubble bars, these are fun because you can use them in different ways. I would buy another one of each color. But it’s not one i would stock up on.
