This is a lip mask. A lip mask is a new (ish) way for hydrating your lips. Just like sheet masks hydrate your face. I’ve been using lip masks from various different K Beauty brands for a couple of years and use them pretty regularly on my self care days.
“Softer, smoother lips are a must whether it’s Valentine’s Day or not, because who doesn’t want kissable lips all the time? Hot Lips is made with loads of glycerin so it’s mega hydrating, while natural ground bamboo stem extract delivers a super-fine polish to scrub away any unwanted dry bits. Plus, it tastes like sweet cherries. But don’t take our word for it; ask a willing friend to try it out.
And this is their instructions for use on the uk lush online purchase product website.
“Designed for one-time use, simply pop the mask over your lips and let the ingredients to get to work for a few minutes. Once you’re done, buff the product across your lips until you feel the bamboo. Then, lick your lips or rinse away any residue.”
The scent of this lip mask is so good. It smells like another Valentines product from two years ago called ‘Kiss Me Quick’. It’s what i would call a lipstick mixed with cherry. I love the smell.
So on to how it works. So i unpacked it from its little envelope.
It feels nice. I noticed it doesn’t have any liquid, or gel, nor any kind of serum on it or in it.
I thought that was different for a lip mask. The ones i’ve tried weren’t dry like this. At the very least it shoulve been damp. So it wouldn’t stick to my lips whatsoever. Lush’s instructions say to ‘put it on your lips for a few minutes’ and let it moisturize or hydrate yoyr lips.
So since it didnt dtay on i tried just holding it in place with my hand. I even tried it lying down so it would stay on my lips.
Nothing happens. Literally nothing. My lips were dry just like they were before i put the mask on.
There wasnt even any product on my lips. There wasnt even any residue! How is this even possible?
I tried wetting it a little bit. Nope. No change. Still didnt stick to my lips.
Im so confused as to how this works.
Hmm. There was what looked like liquid or color that seeped into the envelope that it was in. Maybe thats the issue? Dunno.
It sure is cool looking in the sun!
I dont know its possible im just being dumb but i didnt really get it. 🤷🏽♀️Id rate it a 2 out of 5 rating.
Heres my Demo video i nade for you showing how it looks and feels close up.
LUSH Times, Spring 2004 description: Temptation smells like a superior sort of apple pie, fresh from the oven, spiced with a sprinkling of cinnamon and scented with a hint of orange blossom for a ‘nouvelle cuisine’ approach. Like the best sort of apple pie, we put fresh, organic apples into our Temptation soap and add a drop of uplifting myrrh essential oil. Despite its name there’s nothing sinful about it, except that it’s a bit more expensive than most of our soaps, but if we will go putting fresh apples and phenomenally expensive myrrh in it, what do you expect?
Lush Times 2003 description: Temptation is our apple pie soap made with fresh, organic apple juice and spicy cinnamon leaf oil. Apples contain organic acids which are good for stimulating sedentary people. Picture this, .Adam, get up off your backside and come over here.. .No, can’t be bothered.. .Here, have an apple then.. Temptation soap smells sharp, refreshing and spicy. Just wave it under someone.s nose when you want to tempt them into the shower with you.
Apples and cinnamon. Reminds me of Autumn and good apple cider. The big slab of temptation soap had slices of apples all over the top incase you get a piece with what looks like leaves…. It is! I don’t know why this was ever disconinued because it seemed to be such a popular soap. Everyone used to post how much they loved it. I guess they had to make room for new stuff is all I can think of. I loved this soap! It smells like a real red apple. The soap had a bit more cinnamon scent than the shower gel, otherwise they smell similar.

The New Lush Cosmetics ‘Luxe’ bath bomb. I just uploaded a Tub Demo of it on my lushalot youtube channel down below.
This is one of 5 new bath bombs in the U.S. and 7 in the UK
Its gorgeous in the tub holy cow. Its made with the Lush classic ‘Lust’ perfume scent. Lots of Jasmine.
How to use:
Run your bath and drop in this seductive cocktail of jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood. The hydrating boost bakuchi oil brings benefits that go way beyond bathing in this luxury bath bomb.
How to store:
Keep cool and dry until you are ready for the ultimate levelled up bathing luxury.
Did you know?
Bakuchi oil is a great natural alternative to Retinol, and has many of the same benefits such as stimulating collagen production, reducing pigmentation and promoting skin elasticity.
Its absolutely beautiful and has a different color scheme for Lush. The only reason its not a 5 out of 5 is because i have always absolutely hated the Lush ‘Lust’ scent, which Luxe is made from. 😄 But i wanted you to see how beautiful it is in the tub so..
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 a Lush Uk subscription box exclusive for September 2021.
Have you tried it? What do you think?
I like this. It smells kind of like theres a bit of honey in it. I dont believe there is any in this but that’s what it smells like. Its got very fine exfoliation from the finely ground tagua beans.
Its a thick consistency and my skin feels great after i used it. My pores are smaller and my skin issoft. I do need moidturizer after using it but i always use moisturizer throughout the day anyway so.
If youve tried Lush Smugglers Soul facial exfoliator this Happy Skin is the same fineness of scrub but its a thicker consistency and it smells different. Like a light smell of nuts and honey.
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
In 2021 The uk government allowed people to form “support bubbles” during the corona virus pandemic lockdown.
So if you were single or were caring or a relative you would be able to form a Support bubble and could visit the person even during lockdown.
So Alessandro at Lush UK was inspired by this an developed a bubble bar that looks like big bubbles.
With a fragrance of grapefruit and petitgrain to cheer you up. It’s the same scent as the Lush ‘Madame President’ bath bomb from Mother’s Day years ago. It’s not a sweet scent. It’s fruity and fresh, with petigrain which is sometimes called the bitter orange tree.
Made with orange peel and it smells SO good. If you like the smell of Lush ‘Orange’ liquid body scrub you’ll love the smell of this balm.
This was created by Alessandro from Lush.
It was included as an exclusive product in the April 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.
This has a totally different consistency than all the other Lush foot products. It’s not like a lotion in consistency. It’s the texture of a lip balm.
The best way to use this in my opinion is to have a foot soak at night, try to scrub away any rough skin on the feet , and when the foot soak is done and your dry your feet off, slather this foot balm on your feet and then put socks on overnight while you sleep.
I rub some on my forearms every night before bed and it smells like Heaven.
“Relax into a creamy Sleepy-scented massage, with chamomile essence water and super absorbent marula oil for soft skin. Better sleep and less stress are both associated with a regular rub-down. Why not team with the rest of the Sleepy family?”
I’m in total love with this new bar. It has everything we like about the Sleepy/Twilight scent, but turned up. The bar really brings out its creamy, sweet quality. I love it when a Lush scent meets the perfect product for it, so that it becomes the best way that the scent can possibly smell. 👍🏼
How to use: Think of this as a solid massage oil, the butters and oils are designed to melt at body temperature so hold the bar between your hands to start melting before gliding over your skin, or someone else’s…
How to store: Keep this cool and dry, the ideal place is a Lush tin until you are ready to indulge in a home spa treatment, or your skin is in need of a boost of hydration.
Melt warning: This product is made with ingredients that allow it to soften around body temperature. During hot spells, it may melt. If you have any concerns please contact Customer Care.
It’s said that this shares its scent with the Lush ‘Wintergarden’ bath bomb. But with the addition of Jasmine.
Jasmine Cream is a new limited edition bubble bar this year.
This Jasmine Cream bubble bar looks just like a jasmine flower.
How to use: Gently scented with a soft creamy filling, crumble under the running tap to release mounds of bubbles atop creamy white water. Jasmine and ylang ylang fill the air while skin-softening bubbles fill the bath.
How to store: Keep in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use this plastic-free bubble bath. A perfect Mother’s day gift
This Jasmine Cream bubble bar (and the Violet Cream bubble bar) have a creamy center.
This isn’t a reusable bubble bar, it’s a regular squishy kind of lush bubble bar.
The cream in this jasmine one is yellow.
It’s got some glitter in it but not a lot. And you can see it in the water but again it’s not a lot.
