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.

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.

Lush description Facebook Sept 2016

‘A citrusy chaos of brightening, Sicilian mandarin and orange flower absolute is being pressed into furiously-fizzy Satsuma bath bombs A-peeling aromas await…’

These Orange bath bombs are only going to be available in a couple of gift sets in stores in Uk and North America, Australia, Germany, etc. However, the online mail order website called sold them for one day only.  When i get mine i’ll add more photos and i’ll do a demo video and add it here as well. 


Lush description: Peel off your clothes and pile into a terrifically tangy bath with a generous squeeze of fresh satsuma juice. Mandarin oil, sourced from the sun-dappled groves of Sicily, rejuvenates your mind and shakes the spirits from any mid-Christmas lethargy. There’s no need to get hung up waiting for your Christmas stocking when you can find the same citrus refreshment in handy, fizzing form right here.


Here’s a demo and review i made of this bath bomb

List of ingredients

29 High Street shower gel

Made in the Lush Kitchen Friday July 28

I love this shower gel.  It’s a nice thick consistency.  It has great throw so you can smell the lovely scent all while you’re showering with it.  It’s lovely scent stays on the skin a bit longer than other lush shower gels.

It’s not particularly moisturizing, and doesn’t have any cocoa butter.  Nor does this shower gel have any glitter.

The 29 High Street was made to have the scent of a Lush store.  So various lush store favorites are represented here, honey i washed the kids, karma, avobath, etc.

Because of these things, and also because this shower gel is so rare, I would rate this shower gel a 5 out of 5 rating.  I would highly recommend it.  I bought six bottles.


Here’s a demo and review video i made of this shower gel

here is a scent family portrait I created, with all the products Lush has made with this same fragrance.

Mrs Whippy

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Soya Milk Powder (Glycine soja), Tapioca Flour, Perfume, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Fairtrade Sugar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocoa Absolute (Theobroma cacao), Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata), Almond Essential Oil (Prunus dulcis), Buchu Oil (Barosma betulina), Titanium Dioxide, Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, *Coumarin, *Eugenol, *Limonene, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Colour 45410

mrswhippy 017

Lush Times: With her husband off making ice creams, Mrs Whippy needed something to do, didn’t she? Jack Constantine created this one for his wife; he wanted a soothing, creamy bath that would relax her and leave her skin as soft as a vegan alternative to silk.


Here’s a link to a video i made of Mrs Whippy in the tub.

Bada Bing Bada Boom

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerine, Red Wine, Thyme (Thymus vulgaris), Rose Petal (Rosa centifolia) and Lavender (Lavandula hybrida) Infusion, Propylene Glycol, Fresh Rose Petal Infusion (Rosa centifolia), Perfume, Carrageenan Extract, Synthetic Musk, Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), White Wine Vinegar, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Linalool, *Limonene, Methylparaben. * Occurs naturally in essential oils

Lush.a.Lot’s Review: This was the shower jelly made which smells like the “Sex Bomb” ballistic. It’s a heady floral scented jelly.

Lush Times 2005 description: Bada Bing Bada Boom Shower Jelly is the ultimate in cold showers. Its sensual scents (the same essential oils as Sex Bomb) are blended with red wine and an infusion of rose petals, soothing lavender and stimulating thyme herb. Grab the Bada Bing from the freezer, clean your body with its cool lather and inhale the calming (aphrodisiac) jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage perfumes. That should work just nicely.

Here’s a demo and review video i made of this jelly

Sonic Death Monkey

Here’s a demo and review i made on my youtube channel of Sonic Death Monkey

 Coffee (Coffea arabica), Cocoa (Theobroma cacao) and Cerassie Infusion (Momordica charantia), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Betaine, Fresh Lime Juice (Citrus aurantifolia), Perfume, Hemp Oil (Cannabis sativa), Tangerine Oil (Citrus reticulata), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), *Limonene, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.* Occurs naturally in essential oils


Review: Okay. Those who know me know I am a freak about orange, I love orange. So, take that into consideration. Sonic Death Monkey was named after Jack Black’s band in the movie “Hi Fidelity”. God, or the higher power of the universe, is good, because there is such a thing as Sonic Death Monkey shower gel. I can’t believe how good this is. Yes, it smells like Lush’ “Whipstick” lip balm sure, but this is so much better. Oh my, it is a Terry’s chocolate orange, in shower gel form. Yeah, and orange zest, real orange zest. It’s the spicier zest of an orange, with chocolate. As good but different than the discontinued choclatey and ginger shower gel “13 Rabbits“. Lush made “Whipstick” lip balm, and “Heavenly Bodies” buttercream in this same scent.


Lush 2006 Description: There are many chocolate shower gels in the world and most of them, frankly, are horrid. They are nasty, gimmicky, cheap, synthetic things which smell like market stall chocolate Christmas decorations – horrid, as we were saying. For a while we resisted, not wanting to be tarnished by such a tawdry image, then we thought to ourselves, “We can do better than that, much better!” so we did. (Actually Noriko did it.) Oh what gloriously gloopy, sensual stuff Sonic Death Monkey turned out to be. It has seaweed gel make your hair and body feel soft; it’s scented with chocolate orange and tones you up with fresh lime, Caribbean coffee and herbal tea. (It’s named after Barry’s band in High Fidelity.) Cover yourself in chocolate orange and dig that crazy gravy.


5 out of 5 rating

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Tartaric acid, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Peppermint oil, Cocamide DEA, Flax seed oil, Cypress Oil, Perfume, Gardenia Extract, Chlorophyll, Color.

My review is from 2006, and i feel the same way about it in 2016.

Okay. I’m so amazed with Melomint bubble bar. And I’m amazed at “Summer” on the uk forum for ever having the patience with us to again and again try to get our collective together to vote for it and (thank heavens) finally having it win this time. It looks like a watermelon…in technicolor. It turns the water a beautiful light red/dark coral color. (I’m taking a pic of the water next bath). It smells like spearmint (not sweet mouthwash-y peppermint). It’s refreshing as all get out when the temperature rises in Summer. And what is up with the little watermelon seeds? Cute! I think it’s darn near perfect, bravo Lush.

It is strong enough of a mint to stand alone, and the water color is so unique for a Lush product that I wouldn’t want to change it. 😀 If you like Lush’s “Ice Hotel” bubble bar you’ll love this I think. It’s the same minty freshness just without the lavender. And the cypress really works here. It helps sort of ground it without even being noticeable. Wow.

LT description: If you like spearmint chewing gum you’ll likely have a weakness for this bubble bar. The mint, cypress and chlorophyll provides relief to tired and aching bodies at the end of a hard day, and with the look and shape of a slice of watermelon, this bubble bar is a beauty.

Spring Cleanser

Ingredients: Fresh Cucumber Infusion (Cucumus sativus), Spring Water (Aqua),Almond Oil(Prunus dulcis), Stearic Acid (vegetable based emulsifier), Cucumber Extract (Cucumus sativus), Cedarwood Oil, Violet Leaf Absolute, Chamomile Oil, Oakmoss, Fennel Oil, Perfume, Triethanolamine, Cetearyl Alcohol (wax), Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

Lush.a.Lot’s Review: This was a great cleanser for sensitve skinned or dry skinned people. The cucumber is gentle and skin did not feel tight or dry after using this, it felt clean and moisturized.

Lush Times 2000 description: Cool as a cucumber and calm as chamomile, our gentle Spring Cleanser will soften your skin while cleaning your face. Fennel is excellent for dull or oily skins and is even rumoured to keep wrinkles at bay! Oakmoss, used as a medicine by Native Americans, adds an earthy perfume and works as a natural antiseptic. Violet leaf stimulates the circulation and is used as a remedy to relieve headaches! Use it in the morning and at night to cleanse and refresh your skin.

A Little Monkey

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Fresh Bananas (Musa paradisiaca), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Dried Banana Slice (Musa paradisiaca).

This is a bright yellow banana scented bar. It’s moisturizing properties are welcomed by my poor dry hands, because of the fresh bananas that are in the bar. The scent doesn’t seem to be as wonderful in the water as it is in the bar. The banana scent dissipates too quick. This bar leaves a medium yellow color in the water and comes with a slice of banana on the top.
This bubble bar creates some fluffy, creamy bubbles.
a Little Monkey has the same scent as Lush’s “Banana Moon” soap which was popular for so many years. My kids loved this bar.

Lush Times 2006 description: This bubble bar is packed with fresh organic bananas. We love to use bananas in body products because they make your skin soft so we’ve made a whole Bubble Bar Slice for our banana fans; so you can enjoy their skin softening skills at the same time as you splash about in a tub full of banana scented bubbles. We guess that A Little Monkey bath will go down a storm with right little monkeys as they get ready for bedtime, but we will also allow grown-ups to use it.(If you like Sympathy for the Skin and Banana Moon, then you are going to be in fruit heaven when you add A Little Monkey to your Lush fruit bowl.

Scent Family: Banana Moon Soap; Big Banana Moon Soap; Gumback Express Smoothie; Gumbo Express Smoothie


Here’s a video demo i made of this in the bath


Too Drunk

The Lush Kitchen will be remaking these April 4  2016

Ingredients; Sodium Bicarbonate , Citric Acid , Dipropylene Glycol , Perfume , Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita) , Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta) , Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus Aurantium dulcis) , Fennel Oil (Foeniculum vulgare) , *Citronellol , *Limonene , *Linalool , Chocolate Bean

Lush 2008 description; Too Drunk is not its full name. Its inspiration was a song by the Dead Kennedys, but specifically the version by Nouvelle Vague played and sung in a groovy 60s giggly style by the cool French group with an extraordinary collection of percussion instruments. Anyway, back to the Emotibomb. This is for the day after you got too drunk It has essential oils of peppermint, marigold, fennel and reviving sweet orange to refresh you, wake you up gently, soothe a sore head and slowly bring you back to life. Just stick one in the shower, turn on the water and stand there – or sit if you can`t manage the vertical – getting drenched until it all feels a bit better. Of course, you don`t have to have a hangover to use one. (At Lush Times Towers, we don`t bother with hangovers. Too busy.) Shower with one of these when you`re already feeling okay and wow! It really gets you grooving.

This was nice, a nice change. I love that Lush has made something for folks who don’t have tubs. Alot of devoted lushies have been waiting for something they can use in the shower. For me the Emotibomb is great for an aromatherapy shower.

How to Use Emotibombs

Just when you thought that Lush had come up with every possible variation, we managed to invent yet another fascinating way to have fun in the bathroom. Mo, who invented the Bath Bomb and the Shampoo Bar, felt rather sorry for people who were missing out on the delights of a Bath Ballistic’s fragrant fizziness. People who only have showers, for example. One of the joys of a Ballistic bath is the way that they fill the bathroom with scent and if you leave the door open they’ll fill up the whole house. The beautiful, natural perfumes which are released when the water hits the bomb, change your mood as you inhale them so Mo decided that shower owners really ought to experience the same delights.
Bring on the Emotibomb.

Here’s what you do. Put it on the floor of your shower and as the warm water hits your Emotibomb, it fizzes up into the atmosphere, surrounding you in a cloud of fragrant steam. Everyone’s first question has been this, “But doesn’t it just go straight down the plughole?” Of course it does go down the plughole eventually, but doesn’t everything in life? While you’re in the shower, it lasts long enough to transform your daily cleaning into a magical mist. Just like our Bath Ballistics, you’ve got to choose the right one for the right occasion. We’re starting with four Emotibombs, one to wake you up, one to get you ready to sleep, one hangover cure and one that is called Sex in the Shower. You can guess what that one’s. Probably. Whether you take showers because you prefer them, you live in a drought zone or you’re permanently in a hurry, we reckon you are going to love the way that Emotibombs make them ever so much more exciting. Grab some, this up nice and fresh and tell us what you think.
