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.

I like this one even more than the a Lush Iris Flower bomb. This one has a slightly sweeter scent which i love.

Adam’s Apple mouthwash tabs

4 out of 5 rating. See my scent/taste description and demo video below.

Adam’s Apple solid mouthwash tablets are made with lime, lemon, spearmint, and cooling menthol.

I’ve received many questions on the taste and scent of this. i took the below photo to help demonstrate, and i discuss this in my video.

These mouthwash tabs taste/smell more like the product on the left, not the product on the right.

Lush description: Eve may have gotten the first bite, but Adam got to enjoy all of the flavour. Get first kiss ready with the gently refreshing flavour of these self-preserving mouthwash tabs.

Gently cleansing spearmint collides with lemon and lime for a fruity fling on the tongue, while aloe vera soothes the gums. If you prefer a zesty zing to a menthol blast, these solid tabs are just the ticket!

Strawberry Whip soap

5 out of 5 rating. See my 4 minute sink demo video below.

£6.50 per 100g (transferred to american dollars this becomes $8.28). I wonder what Lush NA price will be per 100g? 😉

I always considered the Strawberry Twin Tub/Two Timing Tart scent to be a 4 out of 5…..vs. the 5 out of 5 rating that i give the other YYY/Strawberry Santa strawberry scent. Not a big difference.

Heres my video. I cut it open.

I ordered three of these this morning. This means that ill get it in the mail in about a week or two.

One of my Instagram followers @rosesangria asked if the scent of this was the yummy yummy yummy/strawberry santa lush product scent. I answered No, its from a retro product scent called ‘Strawberry Twin Tub‘ that was from a jelly that they made in the mid 2000’s. It has a companion bubble bar called “Two Timing Tart’ (and old review from me about it).

I verified this with Lush though just incase.

But even though its slighy different the difference is not noticeable to alot of folks.

This one has Jasmine, strawberry santa and yummy yummy yummy does not.

Also, this strawberry whip does not have frankincense whereas the other does.

Ive used the 2006 strawberry twin tub jelly, and its bubble bar companion ‘Two Timing Tart’ because these products was created for one of my friends ‘Twinmum’ on the Lush Uk customer forum.

This strawberry whip soap will have a wee bit more floral/perfume-y, less fruity scent than the other strawberry scent.

I don’t like lots of Lush products that have Jasmine, because they smell gross. This is NOT like those gross jasmine products.

Because it smells nice, the smell is stronger, its more moisturizing than regular lush soaps. Its got a middle layer of cocoa butter inside. Also, its bigger than i expected. Its not a tiny soap….i give it a 5 out of 5.

Marshmallow World

4 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute tub demo below

Lush has opened up a new store in the Harajuku area of Japan. At this new, special store Lush will sell 35-50 exclusive bath bombs. One of these exclusive Japan Harajuku store bombs is Marshmallow World.

Its made with the popular scent of a Lush hair conditioner called ‘American Cream’, which is an herbal vanilla blend.

It’s made with strawberries for their skin properties , not for the primary scent. The scent is sage-which is a bitter herb-and vanilla, and we all know what vanilla smells like. So put bitter herbs and vanilla together with a bit of lavender, which is even more of an herbally flower, and you have the American Cream scent.

So you can see that it doesn’t smell like strawberries.

I like to stress this fact because i always see disappointed people writing lush comments like ‘but it doesnt smell like strawberries like some of your other strawberry scented things’.

Whew. Now that we have that out of the way 😉 let me talk about what this bomb looks like.

Marshmallow World is such a pretty bomb on the outside, with lovely pink and having purple and yellow striations. It pooks like an unfamilair but fun planet.

It fizzes and makes a baby pink foam and turns the water a light pink color. This bomb must have somethung special in it which is softening to the skin. It feels moisturizing a bit.

What a beautiful scent. While American Cream scent isn’t my favorite, i don’t hate it either by any means. Its a calming scent to me. I think its quite a meditative scent..with a teaspoon of yumminess thrown in.

Lush has made three other bath bombs in the past years with the American Cream scent with different names. But i must say this is the prettiest version.

It doesnt make full-on bath art per se, but it is still beautiful as it fizzes in the tub.

I would by one more but its not one i would stock up on like i did with some of the other community favorites/Japan store bombs like ‘Tender is the Night’, ‘The Comforter’, ‘Melusine’, ‘Golden Pear’.

My tub demo

If youre an American Cream lover than i suggest you stock up on these limited edition beauties!

Lush description: Indulge in a sugar bath scented with American Cream – you’ll get all of the sweet-shop glee and none of the post-binge guilt. Vanilla scented with a touch of strawberry, this multi-coloured marvel is a fiesta of fizz. Marshmallow powder soothes and softens, while granulated sugar adds a sugary flourish, you’ll smell good enough to eat!
