Ruby Red Slippers

3.5 out of 5 rating.  The new Christmas 2016 limited edition ”Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar shaped like a shoe like Dorothy’s shoes in the movie ‘Wizard of Oz’.

See my demo of this new bubble bar below.


Shipping Weight: 100 g(s)

Ingredients: Rose Absolute, Carnation Absolute, Tangerine Oil, Perfume, Colour 14700, Red Glitter (Polyethylene terephthalate).

Lush Description: Sparkling, ruby red bubble bath with a bewitching fragrance of rose and carnation. Crumble under running bath water for mounds of fragrant bubbles.


Here’s one from 2005


Review: This has Rose, Tangerine, Carnation and Geranium. Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar slice was made to be the same scent as Lush’s former “Potion” body lotion. It’s a lovely, gentle, fruity, spicy carnation floral. The glitter on this bubble bar is ruby red.

Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar make the water a beautiful red color. It makes loads and loads of bubble, especially the one i had because it’s so fresh and squishy. My only complaint would be that the scent isn’t as strong on the skin as I’d like.   The scent of Potion in the bath is so lovely though.  I think Lush would be successful selling this one all year round.

Here’s a demo video i made showing this beautifully bubble bar in the bath tub.


Here’s a demo of the original (MUCH more glittery version)

Never Mind the Ballistics

5 out of 5 rating

See my demo video of this below

Never Mind the Ballistics

Not to be confused with another bath bomb that is exclusive to the Lush creative showcase event, which looks similar but it’s different and it’s called “Over and Over.  Never Mind the Ballistics has a colored cocoa butter mixture that is sprayed on both sides of the bomb.  The Lime, Orange, and Frankincense.  Frankincense is one of my favorite scents.

Lush2016 description: ‘These aren’t ingredients for anybody else except for yourself. Lime and sweet wild orange oils are fresh and peachy on the nose, exciting the senses and shaking up your mood. There’s no time for apathy in the bath, so this anarchic bath bomb fizzes and rolls and spews colour with no holds barred energy. Fair Trade cocoa butter melts alongside fresh bananas to soften both the water and your skin. God save the clean; this deserves a replay.’


I absolutley love this bath bomb.  I love the frankincense, i love passion fruit-like scent of the fruity notes. I love the creaminess of the banana, i love the color.  It’s more moisturizing.


List of ingredients

Here’s my demo of this in the tub

These three Lush products below all have the same scent including Lush ‘Fun For All the Family’ Fathers Day 2018 bubble spinner and ‘Tunnel of Love’ Valentine’s 2017 soap.


Lush Christmas 2016 (NA, Uk, Oxford Street, Kitchen)

My Lush Christmas 2017 page will have the same format as this one, except with the new products.

How it goes every year is that I write the Christmas page.

Then i get the products right away from Lush UK. I add the names and descriptions and prices of each product here on my blog early, before anyone reviews them.

I do a haul video and pics.

Then as i review them i make demo videos, write my reviews and take photos and add them here to each products’ page as i go.

So that my Lush Holiday pages are always all done months before the products go to the U.S.img_3157


Lush Oxford Street superstore will also be creating and selling a few exclusives of their very own this Christmas. I have demos of those.

And of course, the Lush Kitchen mail order website at will probably have some (pre-Christmas release) Holiday delights of their own too for us to buy! I’ve posted those here as well.

Bath bombs-This year there will be a few new bath bombs, such as “‘Nevermind the Ballistics’ , with lime, orange and frankincense. And a new one called “Mistletoe’ made with the Lush popular ‘Silky underwear’ scent, as well as many popular, returning favorites such as ‘Golden Wonder’, ‘Stardust’, ‘Luxury Pud’, and ‘Butterbear’.  The new Christmas ‘Satsuma’ bomb, which will only be available in stores in a couple of gift sets, and it shares it’s scent with the new Christmas soap called “Igloo’.

The returning ‘Northern Lights’, ‘Shoot for the Stars’, ‘Stardust’, and ‘So White’ bath bombs will have a new look!

Body Conditioners-Our beloved, minty “Christingle’ body conditioner will be returning this year. Plus there is new body conditioner this year called “Snow Fairy’.  As you’ve probably guessed, it was made with the same ingredients as, thus shares it’s scent with the popular Christmas Lush shower gel “Snow Fairy’.  It’s a lovely light pink with sparkle in it!

Body Lotion-A new lotion called “Sleepy’ which seems from the ingredients to be a “Twilight’ scented lotion.  Yay!

Speaking of Twilight scented things; this Christmas Lush has also created a new dusting powder called “Mr. Sandman”, and they advertise it as having the “twilight” scent.  Twilight is a creamy, herby lavender scent, with a slight vanilla note coming from the tonka bean.  Aren’t we lucky this year!  Thank you lush.

Bubble bars– Lush will introduce two new re-usable wand type bubble bar this Holiday, Jester, whcih shares it’s scent with Lush “Brightside’ bubble bar and Santasurus which is made with the honey i washed the kids scent.  They will join the returning “Magic of Christmas” and “Magic Wand’ bubble bar wands.

There are a few of new Holiday 2016  bubble bars this year such as “Snowie’ which has the gorgeous “Frozen’ bath bomb scent, as well as the returning ‘Christmas Penguin’, ‘Candy Mountain’ and ‘Peeping Santa’ bubble bars.

The red, glittery Christmas “Ruby Red Slipper’ (I.E. “Holiday Bubble”) bubble bar from Holidays past has been redesigned this year to be in a different shape.  Instead of the usual gorgeous, round red Holiday bubble bar, this years’ will be designed to look like an actual ruby red slipper! They’ve outdone themselves!

Dusting Powders The popular “Fairy Dust’ powder returns this year, and Lush has also created a new Christmas dusting powder called “Mr. Sandman”, which Lush advertises as having the “Twilight” scent.

FUN barsLush will also introduce 3-4 new limited edition Christmas FUN bars; Santa, Elf, Reindeer, and Snow Fairy. Last years’ Magic of Christmas, Aliens and Monsters’, and Snakes and ladders will not be returning this year.

Jellies-There are two returning holiday shower jellies; Santa’s Belly and ‘Snowman’,  and one new Christmas facial jelly called “Papa Noel’

Lip color, lip tints, lip scrubs, lip balms-Two returning and two new lip products this year.  A new lip tint called “Sugar Plum Fairy’ and the other new one is a lip scrub also called “Sugar Plum Fairy’.  Unlike the returning, red toned “Santa baby’ and “Santa’s Lip scrub, the new “Sugar Plum” lip tint and lip scrub will have a plum and purple color.

Shower gels-Two returning Holiday faves and one or two new Holiday 2016 shower gels; ‘Snow Fairy’ and ‘Rose Jam’. One new Christmas shower gel this year called “Bubbly’ which is made with the popular  “Champagne Snow Showers’/ ‘Celebrate’ scent.

Soap-There are four new soaps this year in addition to returning favorites like “Baked Alaska” and “Reindeer Rock”.  Reindeer is a different color this year! Gorgeous, New Holiday limited edition soaps include ‘Igloo’, ‘Santa’s Post Box’, and ‘Shooting Stars’, and ‘Snowcastle’!  Igloo soap shares it’s scent with the new Christmas bath bomb called ‘Satsuma’. I find Shooting Stars soap to smells like Lush ‘Avobath’ bath bomb, Avoshower jelly, shower gel.

Snow Fairy shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

See my demo videos of the regular, bottled Lush version of Snow Faity shower gel and the Lush christmas ‘naked’ Snow Fairy shower gel below.


Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Sea Salt (Sodium chloride), Lactic Acid, Synthetic Musk (Ethylene Brassylate),Cocamide DEA, Titanium Dioxide, Iridescent Glitter (Polyethylene terephthalate and Acrylates copolymer), Benzyl Benzoate, Colour 18050, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

I’m not one for Candyish Lush scents, not at all, except when it comes to Snow Fairy. I am just nuts about this gel at times, it’s scent is just something I’ve got to have once in a while. It’s scent is buttery, rich, candyish…almost raspberryish and a small hit of fruitiness. It has a shimmer of pink and fushia sparkles.

Lush 2006 Description: Candy floss pink and sweet as sugar with iridescent sparkles and a hint of wicked fruitiness….

Here are a couple of video demos and reviews i made of both versions of this Lush shower gel and you can see them up close and how they work

Magic Wand

Magic Wand This is a reusable bubble bar on a stick with the Snow Fairy scent!
Fairies of all ages will love this
candy sweet magic wand. Swish
around your bath or hold under
running water for Snow Fairy-
scented bubbles, then pop it on
the side to dry for next time. Don’t
forget to make a wish!

Ingredients: Sodium Carbonate,Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerine,Lauryl Betaine, Perfume,Titanium Dioxide,Cocamide DEA, Synthetic Musk, Methyl Ionone,Benzyl Benzoate, Colour 45410, Colour 17200,Colour 14700

Lush: A reusable bubble bar star that gives mounds of sweet-smelling foam. This is a solid version of our best selling Snow Fairy shower gel for those who prefer to bath.

The magic of this version is that you can wave your wand under the water until you have the amount of bubbles you want – then you just stash it somewhere safe to dry off, ready for when you next bath. We’ve included pink ribbon and a bell, because if you are going to wave your wand, then you need some added drama and special effects! You should get several baths from this, depending on how much bubbly magic you want in your bath.  Each one will leave you smelling of candy floss and pear drops. Baths don’t get more yummy or more girly than this.

Here’s a demo and review i made of this beautiful bubble bar in the tub.

Baked Alaska

5 out of 5 rating

This is the slice i bought in 2022. It’s so grapefruit, lemon myrtle, and floral ylang ylang.

This is a very popular soap year after year.

It’s always one of the most colorful things in my box when i buy the Christmas products online.

This is the new design of the Baked Alaska soap on 2020.


Lush Cosmetics ‘Baked Alaska’ Christmas soap is a large, globe looking soap with a white coating.  It’s named after the dessert food called “Baked Alaska” which consists of ice cream and cake topped with browned meringue.


This below is what an in-store, whole wheel of soap pre 2020 looked like before it was cut into pieces.

It’s quite a contrast to the colors that await inside the Baked Alaska soap when Lush cuts it open…

Lush: “A real Christmas treat with a hidden surprise inside! The Baked Alaska soap has unique shape, which appears as a snowball and inside you will find small snowballs smelling of fresh and uplifting Organic Lemon Myrtle, stress relieving Ylang Ylang Oil and Grapefruit, which is refreshing and toning for the skin. This soap has a powerfully citrus scent.”


Quantitative Ingredients

We buy our ingredients from suppliers who do not test on animals

The Ingredients are Water, Glycerine, Rapeseed Oil, Coconut oil, Sorbitol, Perfume, Organic Lemon Myrtle Oil, Ylang Ylang, Grapefruit Oil.

The grapefruit is what i smell primarily.  It’s a bold grapefruit scent which i like.

If you’re a citrus fan, there is nothing but goodness in this soap; the vivid, day-glo colors and the strong scent of grapefruit.
