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.

Plum Duff shower gel

i LOVE this scent. It’s like a sexy but berryish and slightly sweet. It’s a different scent than all the other Lush scent. At one time this was my FAVORITE. It was made in 1999.
😊it’s got tangerine and sandalwood in it as i recall.

like sexy sandalwood mixed cotton candy or something.

Here is the Plum Duff scent family

Jilted Elf body spray

This is such a very different scent. I love the Jilted Elf shower jelly. It’s like a cacophony of notes but somehow they work together!figs, ginger, cinnamon, grapefruit, vodka and honey. it’s both fruity and spicy. i’ll be buying the christmas body spray.

Ingredients:Glycerine,Fig Infusion,Sodium Laureth Sulfate,Propylene Glycol,Carrageenan Extract,Honey,Cinnamon Leaf Oil,Grapefruit Oil,Ginger Oil,Vodka,Perfume,*Eugenol,*Limonene,*Linalool,Methyl Ionone,Coumarin,Colour 45350,Colour 42090,Methylparaben,Propylparaben,Glamour Gold Glitter

Here’s a demo video I made of Jilted Elf jelly being silly. Lush Times: Jilted Elf takes an alcoholic stumble around your shower, leaving wafts of fruit cocktails as he goes.

Golden Pudding

This is to replace the Golden Wonder Christmas bomb which has been sold every year for Christmas for the last 15 years or so. It looked like a gold Christmas present. And it had a Champagne Snow Showers/Celebrste scent, which is a fizzy grapefruit or orange scent.

This Golden Pudding is like if Lush Luxury Pud and Golden Wonder had a baby.

Do Not look any further if you want the lush Christmas products to be a surprise. 😊

I’ve reviewed and have demo videos here of all the returning Christmas products.

I’ll be adding what kind of products these are very soon and group them by category ‘bombs, bubble bars, soaps’, etc. Then as usual i’ll be adding each product picture, description, scent family, etc. during the next days all the way up to Christmas.
