Beauty Sleep

5 out of 5 rating. See my video below where i apply it and review it.

Mark Constantine, owner of Lush Uk wanted to have a little fun so he decided to work with Helen Ambrosen on a new face and body mask.

They made it by adding a teaspoon of gorgeous moisturizer and then they added the ingredients to ‘Sleepy’, Lavender, Yang ylang and Tonka.

when they finalized the product he announced that they will let us have a crack at naming the product. So people submitted they’re names and a handful of people chose ‘Beauty Sleep’ and this is the name that won.

it’s a perfect name. the mask smells amazing! if you know what the gorgeous moisturizer smells like you can imagine that plus sleepy.

instructions recommend slathering it on your face and your arms, neck, chest, back, stomach and then let it stay on your skin for 10-20 minutes while you’re in the tub or in the shower. Then after that time just rinse it off.

it’s got ground adult beans for exfoliating and it’s LOADED with many moisturizing ingredients.

it’s a beautiful pinkish lavender color.

Lo and Behold when those of us who bought the Lush Kitchen subscription box from Lush Uk opened up our June boxes we found a surprise: a container of Beauty Sleep face and body mask. Yay!

As far as Lush masks go i really like this one. it made my skin feel cleansed and moisturized and it smelled gorgeous. Using it before bed was a good idea since the ingredients in ‘Sleepy’ (twilight) are conducive to sleep.

Dirty scrub

5 out of 5 rating See my sink demo vodeo beñow.

Lush has introduced 350+ new products at their NEW Megastore at the Liverpool SPA store. This body scrub is one of these exclusive products.

The Lush Labs decided to sell some of the exclusive products that were at this store online for a limited time only. So i bought two scrubs. Dirty and Easy Peeler.

Lush designed the Dirty scrub to look just like a kitchen sponge. I love that! The yellow side is smooth and the green side is a little rougher.

These are so much better than the sugar scrub domes that lush used to make. Those older style scrubs become so hard and scratchy that using them more than a couple times becomes a challenge. Not so with this scrub.

The sugar seems to be mixed in with the cocoa butter mixture, not just sitting on the top layer.

This Dirty scrub was made with the ‘Dirty’ fragrance. Lush has made many things in their clasdic Dirty fragranxe. The fragrance is made with herbs, lemon, mint. It smells natural, earthy, herbal, lemony and minty.

The scrub bar doesnt fall apart or become a mess after one use, it stays the same and so i just kerp it in my soap dish or on top of a black pot lid.

It exfoliates my rough, dry dead skin and then moisturizes the skin thats left with moisturizing cocoa butter.

I love it! I would rate this a 5 out of 5.

Heres a videp i recorded of me using it

Candy Cane

3 out of 5 rating

£3.95 (converted to $5.13)

I like this new Candy Cane reusable bubble bar. For a reusable bubble bar its nice. Its harder for me to like the reusable kind for whatever reason. I guess its the softer texture i like. But like i said i make an exception for this one because of the way it looks. A perfect candy cane. Spot on. You can even hang it on the tree as an ornament.

Makes a cute stocking stuffer for Christmas.

I like the surprising fruity scent. Lush says its a new scent. The ingredients say its made with l lemon and bergamot.

For whstever reason i smell cherries, and im not complaining. I like this smell.

The color of the water is kind of a peach color.

This makes lots of bubbles! And as you can see from my video i had an entire bar left! More than enough for a second bath! Possibly a third.

While i like this i might buy one other but Im not sure what im looking for as far as bumping this to a higher rating. I guess because i like the bath bombs more than the bubble bars, and i like the reusables even less. Like i say its a 3 rating so that means i would indeed recommend it, its just not high up on the list of lush Christmas 2018 products. There are plenty of products for Christmas this year from Lush that i like more.

If it was not reusable but had the same shape, and had white and red sparkles on it and had mint along with the cherry, that would bump it up to a 4 or 5.

Here is a 2 minute tub demo i recorded for you of the Candy Cane reusable bubble bar.

Lush description: What’s red and white and can be used over and over? A decoration for the tree or a cheeky stocking filler, the possibilities are endless when you take a trip down candy lane. Hang out with this double stripe of bergamot and Sicilian lemon oils to lift the mood and create a fruity fresh fragrance that will have you bathing time and time again. Hold under the running water to froth up mounds of fluffy bubbles before placing on the side to dry, ready for your next trip to candyland.

Cheery Christmas

5 out of 5 rating
See my 2 minute tub demo video below

£3.95 (uk and converted to $5.15)

This is a pretty, new snowflake shape for Christmas. A bright pink color and it has some blue inside as well. Its not a large bomb, its more on the medium/small size.

The scents is a new one, as Lush states its made with lemon, buchu and currant.

It smells brightly, fruity to me, but not in a citrus way, more in a berryish way. I thought this smelled somewhat familiar but couldn’t put my finger on it. But after asking lush i was told its a brand new scent.

I used Cheery Christmas bath bomb in my bath along with the Lush blackberry and currant Scrub scrub scrub. I figured since yhey both have berries in them they would go nicely.

I like the blue and pink combination of the bath bomb colors in the tub.

The end result is a different shade of purple, almost a mauve color, with silver sparkle.

Gorgeous!

I bought two more Cheery Christmas bath bombs when i placed my secondLush Christmas order.

Lush description: Outside, snowflakes fall to the ground, creating a picturesque postcard landscape, untouched and unspoilt. Against the back drop of a winter dream, Sicilian lemon oil refreshes and rejuvenates putting a smile on the face of all who bathe here. Pop this bundle of joy in the bath and allow the intricate pattern to take shape before your eyes. Lay back, feel relaxed and enjoy the festive season as blackcurrant-scented buchu oil spreads the cheer.

After all, ’tis the season to be jolly.

Heres my 2 minute Tub Demo Video

Heres a pic i took of a bath i took with two bath bombs, one of them being cheery christmas bomb.

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.

I’ll be getting three (one for a giveaway) in around 7 days, and I’ll record a sink demo and do a review at that time as well.

This soap is made with black currants.

Lush Description: Take a walk through a wild meadow. As far as the eye can see, bright red poppies stretch out before you, swaying heads, petals beckoning you onward. The sun warms your face as you stroll, insects humming gently as you pass, dancing among the flowers. Find the perfect spot and unpack your picnic of jam sandwiches and cool blackcurrant squash, their sugary sweetness lingering in the air before being whisked away on a bergamot breeze.

Here’s a sink demo and review video I recorded

Rocket Science

See my demo video below. This has a bright, lemon citrus fragrance. 

What a gorgeous bath bomb. The interesting thing is that this bomb makes various dimensions of things happening. If one were to look at the water one could see layers; multi colored stars on the very bottom. 


Then there is a multi-colored chunky glitter layer above the stars.

Then there’s a layer of silvery sparkes  above that.

Then there is the blue, pink and purple colored foam layer from the fizzing bomb. 

Gorgeous. 

Here’s the 3 minute demo 

The smells is nice, but nothing earth shattering. But the looks of this bomb in the water makes up for it.

I give this a 4.5 out of 5 rating. 

Happy Accident

Happy Accident is an “Oops” bubble bar made in the UK in Early 2007. It has a lovely peach pink color. It smells to me like Amandopondo bubble bar as it does have a rose and citrus scent, and then mixed it with he scent of Lush ‘Happy’ bubble bar. Then again, it does smell a bit like the Lush bath bomb ‘Absolute Delight’. Not exactly positive what that lovely scent is…

 

Lemslip

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Irish Moss Infusion (Chondrus crispus), Fresh Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Coconut Butter (Cocos nucifera), Perfume, Sodium Chloride, Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), EDTA, Tetrasodium Editronate, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides)
*Occurs naturally in essential oils
Size: 7.0 oz $12.60 Lemslip – 3.5 oz $6.30
NOTE: This product may melt and is NOT guaranteed to arrive solid during the summer months!

This one surprised me at how yummy, strong and wonderful this lemony buttercream is. I have dry skin so even though the smell is wonderful it dries my skin a bit more than the others, probably because it’s made for oilier skin. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like the scent.

Lush 2006 description: If you have oily skin with a tendency to go spotty then grab a slice or two of this and start washing all over on a daily basis. Fresh lemon juice is a beautiful cleanser with anti-microbial properties and it has a stimulating effect on the skin too. Irish Moss isn’t what it sounds like; it’s a skin-softening seaweed packed with minerals to get the best out of skin in need of a full service. Softening cocoa and coconut butters make sure that even with all this deep cleansing going on, you’re going to feel smooth and soft as you step out of the shower.

Here’s a demo video i made of this buttercream
Butter Creams
Creamy Cakes of Glycerine Soap made in huge buckets and hand-rolled in petals, chocolate, cocoa butter and other unexpected ‘packaging’, our butter creams look like huge helpings of luxury dessert. At room temperature they start out smooth, soft and slippery, but if you’re the sensation-seeking type you can choose to chill or freeze them to turn them into blocks of invigoratingly refreshing shower soap. Butter Creams are a luxurious blend of 15% soap – enough to get you clean but not make masses of non-essential lather – and 85% natural, skin softening oils and butters, glycerine, plant infusions and essential oils. Use them for summery soft skin.

Madame Butterfly

Ingredients: Sodium Carbonate,Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerine,Lauryl Betaine, Perfume,Rose Petal Powder, Rose Absolute, Geranium Oil,Rose Oil, Lemon Oil,Colour 17200, Colour 14700, Colour 45410

*occurs naturally in essential oils

Lush Times: Madame Butterfly has the same gorgeous scent as the Rose Jam Bubbleroon – a sophisticated Turkish delight fragrance of rose and lemon. Rose absolute and oil to help improve skin’s appearance and to perfume skin and hair and of course to make the most of its aphrodisiac effect. Geranium oil has a sweet, beautifully floral and slightly sharp fragrance. It is thought to have a balancing effect on the nervous system, oil production and circulation. Finally, zesty lemon; toning and brightening on the skin, uplifting and makes a zesty top note in our fragrances.

Here’s a video demo and review that i made for you showing this bubble bar and what the water looks like.

Following the wonderful popularity of Magic Wand for Christmas, we’ve got three more just for Mother’s Day. They make wonderful gifts for your dear old ma; she can get at least 6 baths out of each wand! Tell her to put her feet up while you run her a nice warm bath, swish her chosen bubble bar around in the water, then tell her to enjoy a nice long soak while you do the washing up. Super!
Simply turn on your bath taps and swish it around in the water for a few seconds – or until you’ve got enough bubbles in your tub. Then pop it on the side to use another time – these look particularly nice in a vase on the side. It goes rock hard until you’re ready to use it again – how many baths will you get out of it? Here’s the important part – before you get in, make sure you have a watering can or jug to hand. Then once you’ve finished wallowing in the lovely waters, you can dip your jug into the bath, scoop up some of that nutrient filled water and water all your plants around the house and garden (just remember to put a dressing gown on first if you go outside!)

Madame Butterfly comes with a name tag that’s rather special – it’s got seeds embedded in the paper! Just dig a little hole in your garden or in a soil-filled pot and pop the tag in whole. Give it a drink of water and sit back and let nature take its course. You’ll be rewarded with some lovely wild flowers to bring a little colour to your garden this summer.

Dragon’s Egg

5 out of 5 rating

The gold shimmery water in this is worth it alone.  I tried to encapsulate the feeling of it in my video below

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Fizzy Candy, Perfume, Cream of Tartar,Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lemon Oil, Bergamot Oil , Jasmine Absolute , Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Gardenia Extract, *Citral, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 17200, Colour 14700, Colour 45410, Colour 15510, Golden Glitter, Golden Lustre Sparkle, Rice Paper

Lush: We’ve cracked a new generation of Bath Ballistic. The Dragon’s Egg is a mystical, powerful force of nature that will change the way you bathe. When you drop these eggs into the water, they crack open to reveal plumes of orange fizz that look like a baby dragon breathing fire as it hatches into the world.

Here’s a demo video I made of this bath bomb

Soft Touch

Size: 3.3oz $11.75

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Fresh Lemons, Shea Butter, Fresh Mango, Horsetail, Cleavers and Vanilla Pod Infusion, Lanolin, Perfume, Hydrogenated Palm Kernel Oil, Coconut Butter, Beeswax, Wheatgerm Oil, Soya Oil, Avocado Oil, Cardamom Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Neroli Oil, Lavender Oil, Gardenia Extract.

 

The first time I tried this I fell for it. To me it smells like some kind of wonderful baked good.  It makes my skin feel, a tad greasy.  So i use it for my hands and my legs only.  I’m mad for this bar.  Sometimes i keep a bar on my bedside table so i can smell it while i go to sleep and it’s the first thing i wake up to in the morning.

 

Lush 2006 Description: Our Soft Touch Body Butter is made with plant oils and butters to soften your skin and keep your hands smooth and seriously moisturised. Let it melt generously into your hands at night and leave it there for the nutritious coconut butter, beeswax and cocoa butter to work miracles while you sleep, then wake up to the touch of soft, vanilla scented fingertips. If you share your life with a partner it’s a very good idea to make sure that you keep their hands nicely buttered up with Soft Touch too. For your nails we make an infusion of cleavers (goose grass) and horsetail herb because they are full of silicones. We mash up fresh, organic mangoes to feed your skin because they are the most nutritious fruit in existence. (You’ll notice that they are cropping up in lots of our products). We put in beautiful oils like wheatgerm and avocado to protect and moisturise your hands. Keep it by your bedside and remember it last thing at night. You’ll be glad you did first thing in the morning.

 

How To Use: Apply THE SOFT TOUCH to the hands and finger cuticles by rubbing the bar between your hands. Body Butters are designed to melt at body temperatures – please keep them out of direct sunlight and somewhere cool!

Whitewash smoothie

see my demo video on the bottom this page.
File Dec 31, 2 51 51 PM

LushWhitewashOrangeSmoothieReview: This is the Queen of smoothies in alot of old time Lushies opinions, mine included. It has the same scent as Lush’s “Floating Island” bath melt. vaguely lemony with a bit of sandalwood. It looks like plumbers putty, but the consistency is ohhhh… (:-)…soooo rich. If you took a tub of whipped (not block style) cream cheese and dunked your hand into it, that’s what the consistency of White Wash smoothie is. And then after you put this glob on your bod, you realize that it starts slowly melting at body temperature and it becomes a smoothe, melting, creamy mass of hedonistic goodness.

Notes: Lush also made a Whitewash smoothie with orange oil instead of lemon oil. The Lush purists love the lemon and oil original version more, and I love the lemon version too, but I must admit to liking the orange version more, as naturally I would.
Here’s a demo video i made of Whitewash smoothie and Gumback smoothie.

Here’s a video demo i made of this smoothie

Johnny Appleseed

See my demo video below.

It has a great apple scent!

We don’t want to put ideas in your head, so we’ll just plant a seed. Why not pop this fruity green treat in the bath? An apple a day will send troubles away as you sow uplifting neroli, bright lemon and Brazilian orange oils into the water. Make it the apple of your eye.

 

Melt warning: this product is made with ingredients which allow it to soften at  body temperature, and so it prefers not to be posted to hot, sunny climates.
