I’m so confused at this point. It’s the Lush Kitchen that has the subscription boxes…so reading the email i got from the Lush Labs about their ‘monthly subscription box’ confused me.
Apparently the Lush Labs, that we all love and wished were coming back, has came back with a subscription box, But it’s Uk only. When i followed the link i got via email from the Lush Labs it said it was i’m only. probably because the products are things like fresh face masks.
So here’s the first box and it’s contents. 😊 It’s called the Fresh Flowers box. It has a couple of exclusive products in it. Two facial products.
Set your alarm and enjoy a moment of escapism as you drift off in bath waters of green and pink.
How to use: An afternoon soak in the bath can aid rest, elevate mood, help focus and provide self care. Add this smoky sandalwood, patchouli and cannabidiol bath bomb into the mix you’re sure to discover your reset button. Run your bath and drop in.
This product contains cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD oil, for its non-intoxicating relaxing qualities. The raw material is made of 10% CBD mixed with 90% Hemp Oil. This in turn is used at a percentage that provides 25mg of CBD per 200g item. You can find out more here.
How to store: Keep somewhere cool and dry until ready to use
Please note: This product can only be shipped within the UK
Space Girl body spray was one of ten favorite Lush product fragrances that Lush had us vote from during their LushLabs voting. Space Girl was one of the five winning product fragrances with the most votes.
I’ve always loved the Space Girl bath bomb when it was sold in stores and i was so bummed when Lush discontinued it. It was made with Black currant, Grapefruit, and bergamot. And it was a pale lilac color with silver glitter mixed in and red glitter dust on top to simulate the planet saturn and its red dust rings. Once inside the water it would release a red glitter which would look like a comet on the bottom of the tub. SO cool.
The space girl fragrance is a fruity scent. It’s citrussy and berryish. Citrussy because of the grapefruit and bergamot, and berryish because of the black currant. Black currant is the main ingredient in ‘The Comforter’ just for reference.
When i first spray the body spray on my arms it’s of course very strongly scented and alcohol-y. Also, when it’s wet i find that acrid note that some people find off putting in black currant. But once the body spray starts the dry down process on my skin-that acrid note disappears and just the fruity goodness remains.
The almond oil that Lush added to the body spray is nice. It adds a smooth and slightly sweet note to the fruity mix of citrus and berryliciousness.
As far as staying power this is better than most at staying true to it’s fragrance for any length of time once it dries down on the skin.
There’s a somewhat bitter note in between the fruity goodness. So it keeps the fragrance from being too sweet. The resulting scent reminds me of raspberry candy of some sort.
It’s not as sweet and fruity as Roller/Yummy Mummy for instance, but it’s more fruity and sweet than Sparkly Pumpkin.
I would recommend this if you like fruity scents that are different citrus/berry blends.
The scent lasts longer on the skin than Ectoplasm body spray, and about the same as the three others.
These are other Lush products with the same scent
Goth Fairy Sparkle massage bar
And a new Lush Harajuku special edition bubble bar for 2020 sold on the Lush UK and the Lush USA web sites.
I would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.
Here’s a video where i spray on, review and describe these five body sprays.
5 out of 5 rating. See my demo & review vid below.
Lush has introduced a new shower bomb to the mix. The Comforter shower bomb. Originally introduced at the new Lush Liverpool Spa Mega store, Lush uk decided to offer this to the public for a limited time, on their Lush Labs site at lush.co.uk
So i bought two. I love anytjibg in the Comforter scent.
So far ive loved every one of the 7 different Lush Cosmeticd shower bombs that ive tried.
This Comforter shower bomb is right up there amongst my favorite shower bombs.
Youre supposed to pass the shower bomb quickly one time through the water (dont leave it in the water) and then it starts to activate.
It becomes foamy and creamy and you can rub this foamy cream on your skin to cleanse. Then simply rinse off with warm water.
Its not a conditioning bar, it’s a cleanser, so theres nothing left on the skin after rinsing. Its not drying, it just leaves soft clean skin.
I find this bar to smell like the other comforter scented products, though i definitely smell more of the bergamot note than in other comforter products.
5 out of 5 rating. See my 4 minute Tub Demo with relaxing music below.
This solid bath oil”‘cream” is one of many new bath oils (and 300+ other products) from Lush exclusive to the new biggest Lush store in the world at the Liverpool spa.
Lush Uk decided to sell it on their retail website for sny of us who wanted to buy one. I bought two.
Apparently its sold out on the site now. Im hoping they release it for Halloween 2019.
Its made with Almond essential oil and ylang ylang, and is said to smell cherryish. Indeed it foes dmell cherryish. Originslly i thought this might be American Cream scented, but it isn’t. I noticed there is ylang ylang in here, which American Cream does not have. And the strawberry, lavender and sage which are in American Cream, are not in ‘cream. So i asked Lush and verified that this is a similar but a different scent.
I didnt realize it would make purple water!
Thefe is also a silver sparkle in the wster too.
I would recommend this. The color is nice and the scent is nice.
It’s unfortunate that this is a kind of pricey product because it’s exactly what lots of us have been asking lush for in terms of shower gels. Unlike those naked, solid shower gels, these ‘Atmospheres” shower gel spheres are a REAL shower gel consistency. In fact its like a thicker, more luxurious shower gel. It lathers loads and makes lots of sudsy foam lather.
There’s absolutely no packaging.
However because of it’s price I have to give this a 3 out of 5.
These are packageless shower gels, new and exclusive from the Lush Labs.
To me this is much easier to use than the naked shower gels that lush have made previously.
Lush says: Inside this nondescript, recycled box, powerful forces are at play. Four naked doses of therapeutic shower gel await, made with the finest perfumes to unlock your deepest desires. Shower yourself in love, money or joy – just remember to Let Go of the grudges, regrets or desires holding you back too.
Atmospheres are naked doses of shower gel that double up as a cosmic order of your choosing. Pinch the atmosphere between your fingers and tear open as you focus your mind on your goal, tipping the gel into your hand and washing all over. When you’re done lathering up, the seaweed layer can be washed down the plug or popped in the compost. The laws of attraction are at work so feel secure in the knowledge that your order has been placed.
These are fragile but not so fragile that you cant pick it up.
Lush says that its one showers worth of product but i can TOTALLY see how you can get two showers from this. There’s alot in here.
When done with the product we can safely let it go down the plug hole or throw it away because it’s biodegradeable.
In my video below i show how to pop it and what the consistency is.
However, the price is rather high to me. It’s 12.00 gpb for four shower gels. That’s $15.40 US dollars.
$4.50 gpb (or $3.75) for one shower. Granted, I believe there are two showers worth in each one, but that’s still $2.25 per shower.
While I usually don’t count pennies, this id stick out to me as quite high.
There are four kinds;
Money (green) lime and green notes
Joy (yellow) citrus
Let Go (blue) made with lavender
Love (red) has the Lush Love fragrance, made with rose, and lemongrass.
This is an exclusive #LushLabs Gorilla perfume that Lush will be making on June 29. I will record a demo and review video of it when i receive mine and enter all my thoughts about it here on this page.
I’ll be getting three (one for a giveaway) in around 7 days, and I’ll record a sink demo and do a review at that time as well.
This soap is made with black currants.
Lush Description: Take a walk through a wild meadow. As far as the eye can see, bright red poppies stretch out before you, swaying heads, petals beckoning you onward. The sun warms your face as you stroll, insects humming gently as you pass, dancing among the flowers. Find the perfect spot and unpack your picnic of jam sandwiches and cool blackcurrant squash, their sugary sweetness lingering in the air before being whisked away on a bergamot breeze.
I’ll be recording a sink demo of my Oat hand soap and review this week so keep checking here
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.
Oat is made in the same fragrance as the Lush ‘Mrs Whippy’ bath bomb. So it has a lovely, light perfume made with a combination of Soya Milk Powder, Tapioca Flour, Fairtrade Sugar, Cocoa Absolute, Tonka Absolute, Almond Essential Oil, and Buchu Oil.
Here is my haul video where I describe the scents of these NEW MAY 2019 Lush Labs products.
I ordered these April 31. When i get them ill do a haul video and then ill do individual reviews as well. Im glad to see Sleepy soap being offered as thats the one i voted for. That said im crazy for their bath oils so i ordered those for sure! Which ones did you order?
Available March 2019
Hope this video helps. I tried to describe the scents in detail on the video. My favorite smelling ones are Candy Rain and Valkyrie.
Available February 2019 i ordered all four of the new shampoos to review for you.
I tried the green one first, called “Cafe” as it smelled the best to me. It smells like something yummy that i would eat.
I tried the green one first, called “Cafe” as it smelled the best to me. It smells like something yummy that i would eat.
It was easy to use. The shape of the bar made it easy to apply and use.
I have long, thick, curly hair, so any shampoo that isnt liquid-is more difficult for me to apply. That said this was easy as solid shampoos go.
The Cafe bar has a texture to it. Because Lush mixes lycopodium powder in it. Also, It looks like blades of grass are sticking out of it. I took a photo trying to show this below.
I always ask my husband and daughters’ opinion on these without prefacing or leading them in any way.
My husband’s opinion of the scent is “Smells like chocolate..and grass”.
My daughters opinion of the scent.
“It smells like something yummy i could eat”.
The ingredients are;
Clove bud oil
So we were all somewhat correct 😄
I would rate this bar a 5 out of 5 rating.
Its not for my hair type at all. I have the opposite of thinning hair, which
Cafe is made for, but anyone can use it.
Shampoo hair marshmallows. these are sort of similar to the lushlabs shampoo but different.
Lush Labs have released six new (sort of) perfumes. I say sort of new necause Lush released two or three of these in 2005 when they had their sister company in London called ‘B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful’. I still have my original Cocktail, Two Hearts and Assasin perfumes from that boutique.
Back then people in the U.S. could buy the products at the B Never boutique online through the Lush Uk site.
I bought Two Hearts Beats Again, and Over and Over perfumes this morning, as well as the new ‘Scrub Scrub Scrub’ body wash scrub.
Assasin used to be sold as a scent for Men. But i know women who like the Assasin scent too.
Cocktail- Lush used to sell a shower gel up until 2017 called ‘Wash That Man Out of My Hair’, and that was the ‘Cocktail’ scent. Its an effervescent blend of lavender, jasmine, bergamot, rose, sandalwood and ylang ylang.
Its kind of a fun scent. A bubbly floral scent.
Two Hearts Beats Again is slightly different than the original ‘Two Hearts Beating as One’ perfume that Lush used to sell at their B never boutique. This August 2018 version deletes the geranium and adds sandalwood! Yay! Im glad because the original needed some grounding.
Orange Blossom is exactly that. Pure unadulterated orange blossom. Lush has sold this perfume twice before.
Metamorphosis perfume smells just like the bath bomb of the same name. It smells earthy, and licirice-y.
Over and Over perfume smells just like the bath bomb of the same name. Citrussy Lime, green cypress, bergamot and spicy fennel.
Updated today August 6
Here is my Lush Labs Haul (with Demos) Video of the ‘Atmospheres’ shower blobs and the shower bombs.
Here is a video review and sink demo of the ‘Sleepy’ shower bomb
Update today May 29, 2018 #LushLabs announced, via the lush kitchen Instagram account, that they will sell tickets to the 2018 Lush Creative Showcase. Heres a link to last year’s Creative Showcase 2017 event.
Many customers were angry that there are not going to have any products to sell people on the site today as mentioned by lush earlier. Lush code to instead offer tickets today to the Uk event instead.
Below are Lush Labs products for April 2018.
Here’s my video describing these items
About 13.7 billion years ago there was a big bang and the universe blew up like soup does when you leave it in the microwave too long. Then bath bombs were invented.
And now Lush have come up with a new idea that won’t fit on the shelf above your sink (and a whole host of forward-thinking exclusives that will). Intrigued? Seek out #lushlabs on Instagram.
I made a video on my Lush reviews youtube channel i show my trip to England, given to me by Lush Uk. in this video below i go to the Lush 29 High Street labs in 2014. As you can see in the video the gentlemen explains the two offices at this location are the labs where Mark Constantine and Rowena Bird work on the Lush inventions. All lush products start here. It’s a lovely location where the original facade of the original Lush store is located.
This location is where Lush will be making something exclusive for people to buy on April 29, and all I can say is there are some exclusive Lush products that I have which I need to hurry up and review!
