Kitsune

5 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo i recorded at the end of this review.

Here’s a pic i took of the tray full of Kitsune bath bombs for you.

Here’s a video below that i recorded of the tray of them at the Lush Creative Showcase in England.

Here’s a picture of mine.

see my tub demo i recorded for you below.

i like the theme of this Kitsume bath bomb. Kitsume means Fox in Japanese. I like what Kitsume signifies, and its cute, looking like a cross between a cat, a shell and a fox.

In some cultures in japan it is a fox spirit which has magical powers.

It has a very citrusy scent. not sweet in any way. it reminds me of the Lush cheer up buttercup bath bomb scent.

It makes the water a lovely peach color. And there is also a gold sparkle. not too much sparkle, it’s minimal.

This bomb fizzes very fast and furious. really fresh!

It doesn’t have skin moisturizing properties in it.

All in all i love this bomb. i would buy another one or two.

Rudolph

4 out of 5 rating

For oilier skin.

See my demo video i recorded below.

This is a face mask made as a limited edition for Christmas 2018.

Its made with cocoa, vanilla, tangerine, orange, carageenan, fullers earth, and rhassoul mud.

Both rhasshoul mud and fullers earth are fantastic at zapoing oil on the skin.

I have dry skin, and it zapped any spec of oil i had on my skin.

The texture is nice and silky. It feels like pudding. Not like the more chunky texture of the Lush bio fresh face masks they sell in store.

This is like the texture of lush birth of venus face mask.

Oh, also, the red nose looks like half a cherry but is actually the same mixture as the mask. Cool!

This smells mostly of chocolate. Its like wiping brownie batter on ones face, but in the best possible way.

The carageenan made my skin noticeable softer. That was a wow.

The only teason i didnt rate this a 5 is because its not the proper one for my skin type. If you have oilier skin im sure you’ll find this a 5 out of 5 star rated product.

Here’s a video i recorded of it.

Puddy Holly

4 out of 5 rating

£4.95/$6.49
This is not a returning product but is new.

This smells yummier than i thought it would. I thought it might be spicy like lush holly go lightly but Puddy Holly smells different, like a yummy almond and vanilla dessert.

Puddy Holly is made with Tonka. Tonks bean smells much like vanilla onky a bit carmely.

Its not a strong heavy scent but more of a medium light scent.

Its got conditioning cocoa butter sandwhiched in the middle, which is moisturizing to my uber dry skin.

I like the pretty emerald colored water it gives.

There is also a bit of silver sparkle. Not a large amount though, its every so slight.

I would buy another, but i wouldn’t stock up on them. Thats why i give this bubble bar a 4 out of 5 rating.

Description: Have a holly, jolly bathtime,
Almond oil sweetens your day!
Water a-glow with bubble mountains of snow
And soothing slicks of shea.

Have a holly, jolly bathtime
In a marzipan scented dream.
Soft cocoa butter on your toes,
And fifty shades of green.

Have a holly, jolly bathtime
Let bergamot give you cheer.
Oh by golly have a holly jolly bathtime
This year!

Here is a demo of it in the tub that i recorded for you

Candy Mountain Yule Log

4 out of 5 rating

Yeah, this isnt Snow Fairy scented firstly. Just wanted to get that out of the way.

This is Creamy Candy scented. Lush makes a bubble bar year round called ‘Creamy Candy’ in stores. Well every Christmas Lush makes a christmas themed Creamy Candy bubble bar and calls it ‘Candy Mountain.

Historically its looked kind of like a unicorn horn shape.

This year however, Lush has re-designed their Christmas Candy Mountain. It looks quite different. It has more of a laser cut mountain design. I like it, its more refined than past years Candy Mountain.

The reason people confuse this with snow fairy is because the two scents creamy candy and snow fairy/candy fluff are similar, but yhey are different and made with different scent ingredients such as synthetic musk and vanilla in varying degrees. Snow Fairy/Candy Fluff adds clove bud leaf.

This Candy Mountain has extra skin conditioning ingredients in it, moreso than other Lush bubble bars.

I recorded a 1 minute tub demo of it for you below

Strawberry Santa

5 out of 5 rating

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 yumky 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

Yog Nog Yule Log

5 out of 5 rating

This has such a rich, lucious scent of vanilla and rich yumminess. Yog Nog is a great dessert-like Christmas scent. Its got lots of vanilla, ylang ylang, tonka. Its sweet, but not cloyingly so. Imagine Lush Butterball but with some clove and nutmeg and carmel notes thrown in, along with even more of an array of wonderful, skin softening ingredients.

This is quite possibly the best Lush bath product ive ever had the pleasure of using.

Im pretty sure having a romantic relationship with food…or bath products that look like food…is weird.

I love this bar so much. I wish i could hug it.

Thank you Lush for having a stroke of genius.

I’m not ashamed to say that saved a fair sized chunk of this bubble bar to rub on my arms legs and face.

Yes, i know we’re not supposed to use a bubble bar this way. I just couldnt help it, its THAT good.

Rest assured though-it was worth it.

The water is so moisturizing with this bubble bar that it’s harder to get quite the ‘loft’ of bubbles like the usual lush bubble bars bring. The extra decadence is worth the loss of bubbles trust me.

I would rate this one of those rare products that is above a 5 out of 5 rating.

I would say this has the potential for being a classic, like Snowcake or Luxury Lush Pud.

*Stares at any potential readers from Lush Inc in a pleading way*

I will definitely buy 5-10 of these.

Here is my 3 minute tub demo video below.

Cinders shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

This is the long awaited (if youre an OG Lushie) Cinders shower gel.

Many Lushies have been wsiting for a shower gel of Cinders since lush first introduced their Cinders bath bomb during holidays past.

The Cinders bath bomb (and later – uk forum perfume that i bought on the forum) has a base of orange oil and cinnamon leaf.

This shower gel however, adds some extra pumpkin pie spices that were not in the original. Alspice, nutmeg, clove, and pumpkin puree!

So itslike a combination of orange and pumpkin pie. Quite different.

Im surprised this isnt called a shower cream since it has extra moisturizing properties like almond oil and pumpkin seed oil.

I like the orange color for Fall. And i like that Lush added the obligatory American spice mix.

The consistency is a nice medium-thick.

The scent doesnt partcularly last on the skin.

I would drfinitely enjoy using the large bottle i have and the naked Cinders shower gel also, but i dont know that id care to buybanothrr bottle. Thsts why i rate Cinders shower gel a 4 out of 5 rating.

Here is a 7 minute close up sink demo i recorded of Cinders shower gel.
