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.

“Aluxurious clay face mask, which includes a spoonful of our most decadent moisturiser, Gorgeous, for a boost of hydration. The perfect step in your evening skincare routine, to help you #getyourbeautysleep.

“The combination of lavender and neroli is even more soothing than I anticipated. I noticed a significant improvement in my stress level within minutes. Skin feels soft and smooth afterwards. – bethanyjoyhall

“From its lavender and neroli scent that calms the mind…to its freshly ground Aduki beans, fresh coconut, honey, kaolin, and talc which calm and soothe the skin-this face mask is a 10/10 for me! It left my skin feeling calm, moisturized, and toned all at once.” – LaredoLushies

How to use
Run a warm bath, put on some relaxing music and apply this beautiful face mask to clean skin. Sit back and relax. Inhale the neroli and let the valerian and lemon verbena get to work. Once you’re feeling relaxed and ready for bed, rinse away with warm water.

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!

List of ingredients

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.

Fly Me To The Moon

5 out of 5 rating. See my tub demo video below to see it in action!

I’m so intrigued by these new Lush Christmas bath bombs called Amazeballs. ‘Holly Golightly‘ (green), ‘Snow Fairy‘ (pink), ‘Fly Me To the Moon’ (platinum ufo), and ‘Don’t Let the Bells End’ (yellow).

It was hard to decide which one i wanted to use (and demo) first. I chose Fly Me To the Moon….since i live in New Mexico after all. 😉 When you take the top off its got purple bubble bar/bomb powder mixture inside.its scent is similar to ‘Nevermind the Ballistics’ from Christmas 2017. Its made with lime, orange and frankincense.

I like the platinum shimmer on the outside of it.

I also like the purple bath bomb/bubble bar combo powder inside that is partcular to Fly Me to the Moon.

You can either sprinkle the powder under running water and it will become frothy or you can put the whole rhing in the tub with the powder inside of it.

Its a slow, foamy fizzer. Once it starts dissolving It turns into something that looks like dessert. Like vanilla blackberry ice cream.

It also has glitter in ghe water.

I like everything about this bomb. The design. The innovation. The colors, and the scent. And the performance.

Calm a Llama Party Pinata

5 out of 5 rating see my 2 minute tub demo vid below.

This was made in the Calacas scent. Lime, neroli and frankincense. It smells like perfume-y, resinous limes.

I love the bright pink, orange and yellow (calacas colors) colors which combine to create a dark orange color.

It has a nice strong, true calacas scent!

He has little confetti in him that float in the water. My camera wasnt able to pick thoe up.

Heres a video of it

Avocado Co Wash scent family

There are one or two other products that arent in this photo.

All the avocado co wash products made by Lush over the tears and currently are listed below in order of the originating product at the top of the list.

Avocado Co Wash hair conditioner

Avocado Co Wash shower gel. This is a thick shower gel.

Avocado Co Wash body lotion

Melusine exclusive, limited edition bath bomb

Avocado Co Wash exclusive uk body spray

Avocado Co Wash naked shower cream

I’m also checking to make sure that one of the Lush 2018 ‘bauble melts’ isnt avocado Co Wash scented.

 

Its a very sour lime scent with a nice sweet note in it. It’s quite a big burst of a limey fragrance made with sweet, fruity bergamot oil, fragrant incense-y yet citrussy frankincense (olibanum), and the lemony litsea cubeba herb.

There is the addition of avocado, which is moisturizing and softening for skin and hair.

There is rosemary, nettle, vinegar and lavender flower in the conditioner.

The World’s Smallest Disco

5 out of 5 rating

See my demo tub video below

Above is a photoi took at the annual 2018 Lush Creative Showcase. Lush had balloons made to look like bath bombs, including the Worlds Smallest Disco.

This is a festive bomb for the Holidays. This one takes out all the stops. It’s black first of all, and it has bright pink, green, blue and yellow discs of color that dissolve and form little puddles of bright day glo color against a sparkling pallette of black.

The bomb has a nice citrussy scent of lime and grapefruit.

Its a bit of a clean up, nothing too henious but there is some cleanup involved.

The black and multicolored glitter look like a million tiny mirrors floating through the water. Mesmerizing.

We all like a good party, whether it’s boogieing at a bar, shaking what your mama gave ya in a club or dad dancing at a wedding.For when you want to celebrate but don’t fancy socialising, put on your favourite tunes, forget about throwing shapes and toss this bath bomb into a hot bath instead.

There’ll be no more crying at the discotheque, watch uplifting lime and grapefruit oils dance in the air as the colours swirl and strobe across your bath. Get your tipple on with cognac oil as you get down and hit your own private dancefloor (but please don’t actually dance in the bath).

 

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

Star Light, Star Bright

5 out of 5 rating. See my demo video below. 


One of only three or four lush products ever, that are all silver.
This has lime and ginger, so it smells bright. And the silver shimmer in the water is awesome.


 

 

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Organic Shea Butter, Laureth 4, Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Perfume, Chinese Ginger Oil, Lavender Oil, Persian Lime Oil,Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Titanium Dioxide, Colour 42090, Snowflake Lustre, Silver Lustre, *Citral, *Citronellol, Geraniol, *Coumarin, *Limonene,*Linalool

 

Description: Catch a falling star and put it in your… bath. We have been working for a long time to make this Christmas bath melt – a shimmering bright star for an extra special bath filled with light and lustre. The shea butter fondant centre inside this bath melt is rich and moisturising, creating a soft and creamy bath. When the star melts, its silvery lustre spreads into the water creating a magical trail of starlight. Refreshing ginger and zesty lime oil inspire positivity and will also give you an extra boost. Close your eyes, make a wish, crush this melt under running water and watch as your bath turns into a turquoise, silvery pool of star light.

 

Here’s a demo video of this 

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.

Mumkin

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Bergamot Oil, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Violet Leaf Absolute, Gardenia Extract, Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 14700, Colour 45410, Colour 17200, Dairy Free Chocolate Drops, Candy Leaf, Candy Stalk

Lush Times: If you’re wondering what kind of creature a Mumkin is then it’s no use asking us, because we don’t know either! All you need to know is that she’s cute, very friendly and loves to be crumbled under the tap to bring you mountains of fruity bubbles. The Mumkin smells of sweet raspberries and colours the bath water a pretty shade of pink.

 

Lush told me This has the same scent as the Lush Easter soap “Egg Hunt“, and the Lush bath oil ‘Razzle Dazzle‘.

 

Here’s a demo video i made of this cute bubble bar

Naked and self-preserving, The Icing On The
Cake is an innovative take on the shower
smoothie! This soft soap is made with a
decoction of stimulating lemon, lime, and
orange peels and blended with soothing
almond milk and softening soya cream,

cocoa butter, and almond oil.

Here’s a demo video i made using this and my rating of it.

Rainbow Fun

The only thing that could improve rainbows up above the street, is if they were as close to you as your shoes are to your feet.


So watch them smiling over the sky and turn your head to grin, then quickly run to your bathroom and take this Fun bar in.



Make the seven colours into any shape you’d like, then run the water, settle in and take them on a hike.

Over belly button, then heads and shoulders too, a juicy blend with lemon oil will make skin feel brand new.

Cheery lime and grapefruit oils are bursting from your palm, Fair Trade vanilla sweetens and chamomile adds calm.

Key Lime Pie

This is a beautiful green lip balm.  This isn’t a lush lip tint so It doesn’t leave any green color on your lips, it goes on clear.  It’s a thinner consistency like passion fruit but it fels nice on the lips.  The taste is good.  And the smell is even better.  It really does smell like Key Lime Pie. I enjoy this.

Limelight toothy tabs

Here’s a video demo/review i made of these Limelight toothy tabs.

Lush description:  Make an Entrance

All the worlds a stage.  Get ready for your big moment with super citrusy lime oil.

File Oct 19, 5 42 36 PM

 

This has lime, lemon and almond oil.  The shimmery green color is pretty.  While these were pleasant, they’re not my favorite of the 5 new Lush toothy tabs debuting first at Lush Oxford Street store.  As i said in my video it’s not bad, it’s not fabulous, but somewhere in the middle.  I didn’t taste as much lime as i thought i would considering the tastiness of the other toothy tabs i’ve tried. Still it made my mouth feel squeaky clean.

Here’s a video demo i made of Limelight toothy tabs. See my other toothy tab demos: Bling, Oral Pleasure, Tooth Fairy, Miles of Smiles.

Back For Breakfast

Ingredients: Honey Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Fresh Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Fresh Grapefruit Juice (Citrus grandis), Fresh Lime Juice (Citrus limetta), Grapefruit Oil (Citrus grandis), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum), Tincture of Benzoin (Styrax benzoin), Perfume, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

 

img_7035 img_7037
Review: This is light and lemony, it smells just like Lush “Bohemian” soap, not like Slammer. It’s lighter and so lemony and nice, sunshiny and light for morning.

 

Lush Times 2005 description: You’ll be needing Back For Breakfast if you’re a ‘do I really have to get up already?’ sort of a person who doesn’t have a choice in the matter. The lemons, limes, grapefruits and sweet benzoin essential oil wake you gently but firmly, plunking you back in the land of the living ready to do what you have to do. We use fresh organic juices for high strength wakey-wakeyness and add the essential oils – lime to stimulate, lemon to refresh and grapefruit to revive you – for a concentrated boost of alertness. Ooh! Almost forgot!! They are also fabulous cleansers, gentle but firm on the skin too.

Bon Bomb

Lush Times 2005 description: Fans of the Butterball will be enchanted by its new little friend, the Bon Bomb, so named because Shona, who manages our Brighton shop announced that it had a ‘bon bon cream soda sort of scent’. It’s very fruity with a charmingly sweet, spicy flavour to it, rather like a posh perfume. Bathe with a Bon Bomb and your skin will smell very superior. It will also feel fabulous as we’ve pressed a mass of natural butters into each one; tiny pieces of mango butter, shea butter and organic avacado butter float around the bath until they meet your body, at which point they transform you into a softer, smoother, more mosturized person.

Vegan $3.30 3.3oz

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Perfume, Mango Butter (Mangifera indica), Avocado Butter (Persea gratissima), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides)

Review: This is a smaller bomb. I like the smell and was afraid I wouldn’t. I feared it would have that “Lemon Pledge” lemon smell but instead it’s very yummy lemon/lime sherbet smelling. It is pretty moisturizing too. Be careful this has so much cocoa butter that the tub can become very slippery. Also needs hot water so the coco butter melts fully and doesn’t form little globs in the water. I think this may become a staple ballistic for me.

Notes: The rare Lush “Fanfare” ballistic was the Bon Bomb scent, bigger size, and no cocoa butter.

 

 

Delight

See my video demonstration of this bath oil below.

This was gorgeous, silver sparkles being one of the best things i know, however the scent was a bit disappointing.  I will say that it wasn’t ‘flat’ smelling, it was actually nicely layered between the lime, pepper and pine.  It smells natural.  But it’s more of a gender neutral scent.  Not at all a girly fragrance. It makes up for it because at $3.00 that it’s lovely to combine (“cocktail”) it with almost anything else. The only silver glittery product was “Star Light” melt from Christmas past so this ‘Delight” bath oil is welcomed in my tub.

 

Here’s a video i made of this beautiful bath oil in the tub

Razzle Dazzle luxury bath oil

See video below

Lime,Violet Leaf and Bergamot.

This has the scent of two previous Lush products “Mumkin’ bubble bar and ‘Egg Hunt” soap.  It smells like raspberry, but there’s no raspberry in it,  it has beautiful combination of violet leaf, and lime.

 

 

These debuted at Lush Oxford Street in London on April 2015, and was made by their online Lush Kitchen as well 2 months later.

One of the prettiest of the new bath oils in my opinion.  I love the color fushia.  Lush has since reformulated the Razzle Dazzle bath oil a little bit.  The original ones (like this one in the photos and video) were so saturated with color that they left a bright pink stain on the fingers which would take a few days to come off.  People’s stomachs and legs got the dye on it as well.  When i used the first one, i didn’t mind that much that it turned my stomach pink, but i didn’t buy anymore of the original ones, i waited until they re-made these.  The newer Razzle Dazzle bath oils are still a gorgeous pink color, just not as saturated with color.

Lush description:  You’ll be begging for more.  What if your hinges all ar erusting?  Razzle Dazzle ’em with splediferous raspberry ripples, bergamot and juicy persian lime.

 

Here’s a video i made of this crazy gorgeous little thing.
