Monster Octopus jelly

5 out of 5 rating

What a cute idea!

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.

Coconut, pineapple, orange, vetivert

This jelly is made with coconut, pineape and vetivert. It has the same scent as Coco Loco/Big Calm.

We like our eggs sweet, foamy and vegan. Brazilian orange oil and vetivert oil make a cracking combination and will have you dreaming of being in a candy store filling a paper bag with fried egg gummy candies. Let this sudsy version wobble over your body in the shower and feel the refreshing, toning and brightening effects of fresh pineapple infusion. If ever there was a shower jelly that smelled good enough to eat, it’s this one.

Sunnyside Up jelly

Don’t leave yourself scrambling for a good shower. Lather up with this sunshine-filled jelly. It’s no yolk, this cheery little egg is packed with a cracking mix of soothing coconut infusion, enzymic pineapple and softening carrageenan extract – a recipe for truly sumptuous skin. Top it all off with a blend of uplifting orange and vetivert for a clucking good shower.

Benefits:
– With a soft, tropical scent, fresh coconut infusion soothes and moisturises skin leaving it soft and supple.
– Fresh pineapple infusion is bright and enzymic, great for stimulating skin and giving it a revitalised glow.
– Carrageenan is a seaweed extract that gives this product it’s unique jelly texture, and is super softening for your skin.

How to use: Keep it whole, and lather onto wet skin to create a rich foam that will clean and leave you feeling fresh and bright.

Lush Silver Bells & Drummers Drumming jellies

4 out of 5 rating for both jellies. See my demo, description and reviews video below.

Since there are 70 products i asked my youtube subscribers and my instagram tv subscribers to choose which products to review next. The majority of folks chose tge jellies first. So im reviewing both silver bells and drummers drumming jellies here.

Silver bells has a new scent. It smells like fresh air, or snow, or fresh sheets. The scent is made with lime oil, orange oil and frankincense (olibanum). Its also got black sesame seed milk in it, which is different and interesting.

Silver Bells has a silver metallic sheen to it, wheras Drummers Drumming is yellow, not gold.

I find this to be more of a milky consistency as you can see in the video. Even so, it makes the same kind of lather that the Drummers Drumming and the Santa’s Belly do.

The scent of Drummers Drumming smells of peach juice. Very few (a handful only) Lush products over the last 20 years have peach juice in it.

I like it, its not too sweet but it does have a natural sweetness to it.

Its east to lather up with both of these jellies. And its easy to rinse off the jellies too. They rinse off clean and leave no kind of sticky residue or anything.

I show in the video how a teeny sliver of either jelly makes Tons of bubbles in the tub too!

Conga jelly

4 or 5 out of 5 rating

Lush has introduced five or six jellies at their new Superstore at the Liverpool Spa.

All having Dance names. Conga is the pink one andis made with Raspberry juice!

It also has vanilla, davana oil, and bergamot.

Initially i thought this might be a scent twin of raspberry milkshake soap however ive asked and it isn’t. To me this jelly smells more like raspberries and cream instead of just straight raspberry. It seems more yummy.

It seems like its more conditioning than other lush jellies because of the moisturizing davana oil and skin softening carageenan seaweed.

I recorded a 4 minute video showing you how it looks out of the container. I also show how to wash with it at the sink.

“Come on shake your jelly baby, use this Conga! You can’t resist this sweet-scented lather any longer. Feel as almond milk makes your skin softer, don’t you fight it ‘til you’ve tried it! Lather up with this sweet treat.

No need to form a line to experience the fabulously foamy washes of this wibbly treat. Brightening raspberry juice and vanilla absolute add a sweet note, while almond milk ensures skin feels hydrated.”

Golden Pear jelly

5 out of 5 rating (in my opinion)

Please know-my husband and my daughter seperately did NOT like this jelly 🙂

As i said, and showed, in my haul video the consistency of this is perfect. Its firm and solid, not broken nor mushy. And Its gold! Straight away i can smell the strong scent of pears! It’s a stronger pear scent than in the soap even!

I can smell each of the ingredients; pear puree, cardamom, orange and just a smidge of sandalwood. Mostly i smell pear. My husband and daughter interpret this real pear smell to be similar to a paint smell. No matter how hard i try all i smell is pear. This wild swing in scent descriptions is similar to the mystery of the Great pyramids. Most of the time i can get why some things smell different to people. All I smell a vat full of juicy, sweet pears.

The color is golden all the way through. It leaves NO gold color whatsoever anywhere on your skin.

I literally like this jelly scent more than the golden pear soap, bomb, or body spray. I didn’t expect to like this so much to be honest.

As far as use i would use the bath bomb before i would reach for the jelly. But that said- im loving using this jelly.

Just a small note: golden pear jelly is not as creamy/conditioning as the Yummy mummy jelly.

Yummy Mummy jelly

5 out of 5 rating

Lush Uk have created 9 Community Favorites shower jellies.

Community favorites means; Lush asked us what our favorite product/scents are. Then they took the top nine answers with the most votes, and they made those nine into shower jellies!

Five of these jellies have not been made before. Three of these; Twilight, Sweetie Pie, Calacas have been made previously.

Yummy mummy is one of the scents that won and that Lush made a jelly of. I for one am SO glad because its one that i wouldve voted for. I have seven bottles of Yummy Mummy shower gel. And i once bought twenty Roller bath bombs. So i REALLY love this fruity, carmely scent.

Yummy mummy is made with strawberry puree, orange oil, tonka bean.

It smells like a strawberry shake.

This is what i originally imagined American Cream to smell like. Lol.

It took an enormous amount of control to buy only one pot of Yummy Mummy shower jelly.

Shower jellies can be used as soap, either whole, sliced, chopped up or frozen.

They can also be used as shampoo. And they can be used to get nice bath foam in the tub by holding it in your hand underneath the waterspout.

I used it whole, which i never do, and it worked really well. I was able to hold onto it without it dropping but your mileage may vary.

I washed with this and it smelled nice and strong. Its creamy like the Yummy Mummy shower cream.

It made a regular amount of creamy but foamy lather, not too much and not too little.

It didnt fall apart or anything. I just put it back in the pot when i was done showering with it.

Lush are selling these in the large size so this will last for months.

It has a 14 month expiry date.

Turtle

Lush is making available today the ‘Turtle’ jelly bomb. I love it! It’s made in the same pine, Cypress, sandalwood and seaweed scent as their retro ‘Geophyzz’ bath bomb. So cute. They have little agar agar bits inside them to represent their plight with pollution in our oceans from waste.

In my photo below are the Mama Turtle above and baby turtle below her.

Pot O’ Gold shower jelly

3 1/2 out of 5 rating

See my demo video of it below

This beautiful gold jelly is made with orange oil, fresh pineapple juice, Myrrh, and Vanilla.

This was a limited edition shower jelly for Easter 2017. And the Lush Kitchen remade it for their April 2021 Subscription Box.

It’s a love it or hate it scent. A lot of Lushies like the look of it but don’t like the scent and a lot of Lushies do love the scent.

To me it smells like a buttery baker pastry cream or something yummy like that. In addition to the bakery scent It has a very slight licorice note.

It’s a beautiful yellow gold color and it also has subtle gold a sparkle.

This has the same scent as the below products

Ingredients list: orange oil, fresh pineapple juice, Myrrh, Vanilla.

Here’s my demo/review video of it 😊

How i’ve used it is to get a tiny piece and chop it up and put it in my plastic seive, then i hold it underneath the water faucet for the tub and it makes a TON of bubbles.

I also cut a round piece off of it and use it as a hand soap at the sink.

I also put a small piece in my shower pouff and it makes a nice lather and doesn’t fall on the shower floor.

Big Calm

Ingredients: Coconut and Pineapple Infusion (Cocos nucifera and Ananas sativus), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerine, Propylene Glycol, Perfume, Carrageenan Extract, Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Vetivert Oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Benzyl Alcohol, Citral, Coumarin, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 61585, Colour 77891, Methylparaben.
* Occurs naturally in essential oils

Here’s a demo video

Review: I’d give this a 4 This jelly has such a beautiful dark and light blue color. It reminds me of the sea.  The ocean is also called “the big Calm”.  So beautiful  the color blue…truly dreamy looking. It has the scent of a sweet tropical scent, fruity and a bubble gum-like note underneath.  If Lush Coolaulin, Pineapple Grunt soap and Rockstar soap had a lovechild maybe? I like this. I don’t think I’ve ever smelled any other lush product that smells like this. It’s Lush but it’s not like anything that’s out currently. For those of you who like B Never’s Banana soap, it’s kind of like that, but this has more coconut smell and a different kind of fruitiness. This is one of those Lush products where you go ‘Do I hate this or….like this…sniff sniff…mmm…sniff sniff…Hmm….” so it may be one of those “taunting” types of Lush products. You know like some lush products, when you first smelled it you’re like “Hmm…hmm..” and you put it back and then the next day it calls you and you HAVE to smell it? Yeah, that.
