You Shall Go to the Ball

5 out of 5 see my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below

Looking like Cinderella’s carriage, i love the new Strawberry scent. Its different than any other Lush strawberry scent. Its almost like they mixed lush rose jam and lush strawberry twin tub jelly. Those notes mixed together.

I don’t think i’ve ever seen any Lush bath bomb that was so intricately designed. And the color combination of that shade of pink with a beautiful dusting of gold.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Tonka Absolute, Soybean Flour, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Talc, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Dipropylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Tin Oxide, Coumarin, Geraniol, *Limonene, Colour 47005:1, Colour 45410:1, Colour 45410:2, Colour 45410, Colour 15850:1, Colour 77491, Colour 17200

After my bath i ordered 3 more of this bath bomb. Who knows. i might buy more right before they go away in January.

This is a slow melty foamed type of bath bomb. I love that type. Those usually have the best bath art.

I noticed that this has pink shimmer in the water as well as gold shimmer! It doesn’t stick to your skin which is good. It’s not the most glitter i’ve seen in a lush bath bomb but it’s not the least amount either.

The pink and yellow combine to make a deep orange colored water, with pink and gold sparkles.

Hot Toddy

4 out of 5 rating. smells of cloves, cinnamon

This came out for Yule 2003. It smells nice and warm for the winter months. It smells spicy, orangey, foody, and a little spicylike Coca Cola or something. It’s a nice orange caramel and spice scent. Hot Toddy was wildly popular with Lushies when it was made both times. I am the only Lushie on the planet who doesn’t think Hot Toddy is the best thing since sliced bread. But I do think it’s good.

Lush Times description: The hot toddy is our Celtic grandmother’s cure for a cold or a chill: whiskey (or whisky), lemon juice, honey and hot water. The Lush Hot Toddy will suit even the tee-total grans because you don’t drink it, you crumble it under the running water to make a warm, fruity, spicy bath with lemon peel, muscovada sugar, cinnamon, lime, clove and a pinch of paprika and a hint of soothing patchouli. It takes the chill off after coming in from the cold.

Ingredients: 100g £1.95

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Clove Leaf Oil, Patchouli Oil, Lime Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Orange Oil, Muscovada Sugar, Lemon Peel, Crushed Cinnamon, Paprika Oleoresin.

Lush made a shower gel (and a few other things) from this scent.

Happy Skin

Lush ‘Happy Skin’ facial exfoliator

This is a Lush Uk subscription box exclusive for September 2021.

Have you tried it? What do you think?

This was an exclusive product made for the August 2021 Subscription
Box


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.

Merry Christmas shower gel

5 out of 5 rating

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

The Big Snow Fairy Roll

The Big Snow Fairy Roll is new. It’s a 1 kilo version of the Snow Fairy Roll. The ‘regular size’ Snow Fairy Roll is like two regular bubble bars and THIS Big SFR is even more huge.

Its the same size as this Big Comforter in my phoro below.

Ghostie

5 out of 5 rating. See my Tub Demo Video Below.

This bath bomb is new for Halloween this year.

It has an array of colors inside this white bath bomb.

This has a citrus scent made with lemongrass, lemon and lime. Iys the same ecent as the Lush ‘You’ve Been Mangoed’ bath oil solid. Its not a sweet citrus scent. Its very tart.

You’ve Been Mangoed

Its a new ghost design.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Popping Candy, Titanium Dioxide, Lemongrass Oil, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Persian Lime Oil, Cream of Tartar, Water (Aqua), Talc, Cornstarch, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Dipropylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Propylene Glycol, Tin Oxide, *Citral, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42090:2, Colour 77491, Colour 42090, Colour 45410:2, Colour 45410, Colour 45410:1, Colour 15850:1, Colour 17200, Colour 77499

Heres what it looks like under UV light.

It makes a gradient of pink, blue and purple foam. GORGEOUS!

The end result is a periwinkle blue water with silvery blue spakles.

My Tub Demo

Screamo

4 out of 5 rating. my 2 minute Tub Demo Video is at the bottom of this page. I hope it helps.

I like this bubble bar. Mostly because one of my favorite lush products is Happy Blooming shower jelly, and this Screamo bubble bar was made with that same cherryish scent.

initially when i sniffed it i smelled a licorice kind of scent. But as i continued to sniff it i can definitely smell the Happy Blooming scent.

This bubble bar is very fragrant. It’s sweet and cherry.

This is a reusable type of lush bubble bar, not a regular, break it up with your hand squishy type of Lush bubble bar.

When i got it it had the stick to hold it but when i picked it up to use it the stick came out and a couple of small pieces broke off. I was like ‘oh no’ but it didn’t hurt anything i just held it in my hand instead.

Lush description: Giggle with a ghost whilst blowing cherry scented bubbles through the mouth of the scream. Swish the blower into the bath water to create purple bubbles that will bring joy to even the darkest of Halloween nights.

Happy Blooming

When i saw the color the water was turning i said ‘yeah baby!’ 😄 And the longer i left it in the water stream the darker the purple color got.

It made bubbles like this and afterwards the bubble bar looked like i didn’t even use it. So this bubble bar is good for at least 2 baths.

Here is my 2 minute Tub Demo Video. I hope it helps.

Monster Octopus jelly

See my 4 minute Description and Demo video Below

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.

Ingredients

Glycerine, Fresh Passion Fruit Infusion, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Carrageenan Extract, Perfume, Vanilla Absolute, Blackcurrant Absolute, Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Tagetes Oil, Water (Aqua), Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, *Benzyl Alcohol, *Citral, *Limonene, Colour 14700, Colour 17200

Lush Description:

This tentacled passion fruit scented jelly is not only fruity, bubbly and great fun to wash with but will dance with you too! Tango together in the tub and watch it wiggle, slide and jive as you wash.

How to use:
Wibble and wobble the whole jelly over your body and hair for a skin-softening wash. Bonus tip: Slide the jelly across the tub to watch the octopus dance. 

My Demo Video

Ectoplasm slime

i have two videos below showing what the Lush shower slimes are like close up.

Made for the first time this year (as a limited edition) for the Lush Christmas 2021 holiday.

There is an Ectoplasm shower gel that Lush made for Halloween a couple of years ago. I thought this was a wonderful new citrus scent for Lush. I asked for a perfume of this. And i must have not been the only one because soon thereafter Lush made an Ectoplasm liquid spray perfume and a body spray. Lush also made a bath bomb called Ectoplasm first. And a few years ago Lush made a solid puzzle bath oil called Tree-D (a play on the words 3D).

So now Lush is making an Ectoplasm Slime.

The scent is very citrussy. It’s a different scent than all the many other Lush citrus scents. I absolutely adore it. This has an addictive, tart effervescent scent of grapefruit and tangerine. It smells like fizzy soda. Moreso than Bubble or Celebrate imo. Ectoplasm isnt as sweet as those.

My husband has a little UV light (or black light) and he pointed it towards the container and WOW!

I took a photo of the Ectoplasm products
Ectoplasm body spray

Ectoplasm slime is the fourth slime that Lush has made. I’m going to attach videos of the other slimes that i bought when Lush made them. All 3 slimes have been exclusive and one was sold as a limited edition for Halloween. Two of them came out at the same time; ‘Brr’ and ‘Bam’. One was minty and one had the same scent as Lush ‘Nevermind the Ballistics’.

Lush also made a black slime with the snow fairy scent, and a pink slime with the snow fairy scent.

So the Ectoplasm slime will be the same consistency of these other slimed in the videos, only it will be highlighter green/yellow and it is fluorescent under black light.

Heres my Demo video of Ectoplasm slime

Snowball (Yukigassen)

This has a pretty light dusting of white glitter only here and there on the outside of the bomb. However i wasnt able to see any glitter in the water to speak of.

This is so refreshing, and the blue color is so.pretty. ididnt see a whole lot of glitter in the water though.

Im sorry about the noise of the wind in the video, it was VERY windy when i took this bath. 😊

Demo Video

Snow Fairy Lights

see my 3 minute tub demo video below

New for 2021

I like these style of ‘Amazeball’ bath bomb, which all have a hollowed out core with other tiny bath bombs inside, and a top.

Love Locket,. Fly Me To The Moon, Snow Fairy, Don’t Let the Bells End, and Holly Golightly are all this type of hollowed out bath bomb.

The time has come to be true to yourself. The Snow Fairy is here to shine a light on the courage, kindness, and confidence within you. 

How to use: 
Fill your bath, sprinkle the bath confetti, add the shell and/or stopper and enjoy a fabulously softening experience. With a new 3-in-1 design, perfect for your Secret Santa pick. 

How to store: 
Keep cool and dry before you are ready for a sweet-scented light show.

Did you know?
Over 25 years ago we invented the bath bomb. Our fizzing bicarb beauties provide an immersive aromatherapeutic bathtime like no other. All this and no packaging too…

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Persian Lime Oil, Cream of Tartar, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Cornstarch, Icing Sugar, Marshmallow Root Powder, Synthetic Musk, Dipropylene Glycol, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Tin Oxide, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, *Limonene, Colour 45410, Colour 45410:2, Colour 17200, Colour 45410:1, Colour 47005:1, Colour 45380:2, Colour 19140, Colour 14700, Colour 42053, Colour 42090, Colour 42090:2

Summer Blues

4 out of 5

A beautiful, fresh floral scent.

This is up for the vote for the September 2021 subscription box. 🤞🏽

This is rare. Lush has never remade this since it was originally sold in 2004. Not even in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen. I pray this gets enough votes. 🙏🏼


This is (was) a lovely powdery, Summer floral bath bomb available in the UK and in some NA gifts. Lots of pretty, tiny blue flower petals in this one. Summer Blues also turns the water a pale blue.

Lush used to make a liquid bath oil called Dreaming of Summer and this was the precursor to Summer Blues bomb. I love having them together but if you don’t like bits in your bath (and on your skin if you use the bath oil with it.) then you can simply put the bomb in a pop sock or a kitchen seive, as just the smell and water color is worth it. Here is a picture of the Dreaming of Summer bath oil.

Summer Blues’ fresh scent lasts on the skin longer than most Lush scents too. It’s a similar fresh, spring air scent that is in Lush’s “Oxeo Cube” deo and “Tiptoe Thru The Tulips” soap. I don’t usually combine these with anything.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Blue Mallow Flowers, Larkspur Flowers, Cornflower Petals, Rose Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus dulcis), Lemongrass Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Colour 42045.

Lush Times Summer 2004 description: Drop this in the bath and you’ll get a blue pond full of three kinds of blue flower petals, scented with soothing rose, calming and reviving orange blossom, relaxing jasmine and lemongrass to lift your spirits. It’s like buying a ticket and hopping on the magic bus to a warm, summer garden. Float in a warm bath of flowers and you’ll discover that the Summer Blues Bath Ballistic is one of the fastest ways to rid yourself of winter miseries.

Golden Pear body scrub

5 out of 5 – see my close up sink demo below 😊

Time to scrub up? Pop into the shower and let the sea salt and prickly pear oil do the hard work, leaving you with softer skin. Listen out for crackle-ingly good shower ASMR with this natural exfoliator.

How to use: 
Wet your bar, rub between your hands and scrub using the pressure you like. Cut in two before you use or use whole bar for an indulgent pear-scented treat.

How to store:
Keep somewhere cool and dry until ready. This is enough for two full body scrubs so pop in a dish between uses.

i was very excited to buy golden pear scrub. i love all the lush golden pear products. It’s made with real pear. And i cannot resist bath bombs that look like fruit. And a gold one? Yeah, i’m not made of wood people.

If you’ve tried the Golden Pear body spray or jelly, you know that these two have a very strong astringent alcohol-y note to it. This isn’t the case with the scrub. The scrub smells more like the Golden Pear soap, bath bomb and bubble bar.

After using my skin is smooth, soft and moisturized, while also smelling like a pear. It’s conditioning without being too much.

As you can see in my video my arm didnt have any noticeable glitter when i was done.

Ingredients

Fine Sea Salt, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Sodium Bicarbonate, Popping Candy, Cupuaçu Butter, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cream of Tartar, Pear Powder, Organic Jojoba Oil, Coarse Sea Salt, Cardamom Oil, Brazilian Orange Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Prickly Pear oil, Titanium Dioxide, Lauryl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Silica, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Coumarin, *Limonene, Perfume, Colour 77492, Colour 77491

Sleepy Bear

Having the Lush Sleepy/Twilight scent

Tiny purple Lavender petals which Lush has coated in purple bath oil. I love when Lush is innovative.

I’m going to use it in the next couple of days and will record a Tub Demo Video of this Sleepy Bear so we can see what it does in the tub and what color it makes.
