Sex Bomb shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

This is one of six exclusive shower gels that Lush.co.uk made ‘just because’ from community favorite bath bombs

Honestly, This is the shower gel i was the least excited about. Ive seen sex bomb in one form or another for 17 years. *yawn*

However, i was in for a surprise when i used this for the first time.

Firstly, it has this quite unexpected pink shimmer to it. SO pretty. The bath bomb that this shower gel was named after doesnt have any glitter nor shimmer so this was a pleasant surprise. its not glitter like in Intergalactic shower gel, this is *shimmer*, more subtle than glitter. Beautiful. I just keep gazing at it in the light.

Secondly, the scent isn’t as complex as rhe bsth bomb scent. That said-this is what i could call a classically ‘pretty’ scent. Its feminine and floral. Having rose, and jasmine florals. The herbaceousness of the sage is kind of missing, and the ylang ylang isnt coming across at all to me but….i dont care because this floral shower gel scent has great ‘throw’. Its not a sweet scent. Just floral.

And more importantly two hours after my shower im getting compliments about how i smell at the grocery store, and from my husband. He said it smells sexy.

I SEE you Sex Bomb shower gel! ❤️

Lush Community Favorites exclusive Jellies

Here is my Lush exclusive community favorites Jelly order Haul Video!

my husband and daughter did NOT like the smell of golden pear.

I placed my order for one of each (okay maybe i added one more of certain kinds for a giveaway).

Golden Pear bath bomb

5 out of 5 star rating. see my 2 minute tub demo below.

Oh. My. Goodness.

Firstly, Golden Pear is almost too pretty to use. Thats why i bought six.

Or at least thats what I’m telling people 😉

Yes, its THAT good. It’s creamy, rich and fragrant.

I heard from a few people on my instagram who said they liked Golden Pear but would love it more if they didnt have to smell that initial somewhat odd first note. Trust me when i say there is no odd note in the Golden Pear bath bomb.

You’d be surprised at HOW good this smells. Please dont buy just one. You’ll be sorry.

Just like their Golden Pear soap, this bath bomb has a layer of cocoa butter sandwhiched in the middle of this golden, fizzing beauty.

Even though there is a slight dusting of gold on the outside of the bomb, the water isn’t glittery. So those of you who dont like glitter will enjoy this!

I love the peach golden colored water.

And the water is more opaque and its more moisturizing too, whivh my dry skin enjoyed!

In my opinion there’s nothing not to love about this bath bomb.

Here’s my 2 minute tub demo.

lush description:
If things turn pear-shaped, look to this fresh and fruity bath bomb to lift your spirits. Invigorating cardamom oil infuses the steam with notes of spiced fruits, while zesty Brazilian orange oil clears the mind. A reassuringly warm, woody aroma grounds this sweet pear, settling busy thoughts.

Lush will open its third all naked shop in Japan in mid 2019.

Lush introduced the products that will be made for this store at their annual Creative Showcase.

I was fortunate enough to attend the annual Lush Cosmetics Creative Showcase this year, 2018.

While there i was lucky enough to be able to buy the following exclusive prodicts, and included are a couple of exclusive products which were given to me by the creators at the showcase.

Amongst my favorite products are the six bath bombs that were on display at the showcase. Once a day (the showcase was a two day event) a magical van would open up in an explosion of smoke! And out would pop a group of Lush staff dressed up and leading songs about the bath bomb that would be demonstrated before those of us in the crowded line. Then they would announce that the bombs would be sold to those of us in line, one per person, until they sold out.

I was able to get multiple of each because my husband bought a ticket to the event too and was with me in line. He bought one too and gave his to me. Additionally, we had tickets for both days, so the next day we waited in line again and bought one each again.

Then as we were leaving, i got a call saying the owners of Lush wanted to thank me for what ive done for them throughout the years by giving me a bag with some goodies which included one each of these six exclusive bath bombs.

I couldnt believe it! So this is why i have multiples and have been doing giveaways with them.

So i have taken photos and videos of all of them for you.

Black Rose

Harajuku

Kitsune (Fox spirit)

Hulder

Goddess (formerly God is a Woman)

Lush also had skincare, hair are, and solid mouthwash, wash cards and toothy tabs. ill post picture i took of these too below

A New Lush bath bomb for Ariana Grande?!

For her new video ‘God is a Woman’!

Jack Constantine recreated the beautiful purple and blue hues in her new, visually stunning video.

i can only imagine what the scent of this might be.

I don’t know that it will be sold to the public. I’m hoping so. Wouldn’t that be great if Lush decided to sell these as a #LushLabs Exclusive?

I imagine something along the lines of breath of God but maybe with more of the feminine aspect or the feminine notes of it. Maybe rose or jasmine. Maybe some rosewood.

Something earthy, or something ethereal?

It’s fun to imagine what it might smell like.

What do you guys think it might smell like?

Olive Branch body spray

3 out of 5 rating. I’ll record a demo video of mine soon.

The Olive Branch is a somewhat popular gender neutral scent. It’s citrus but also has a green and almost earthy note to it along with the orange citrus.

Lush makes a few products with this same scent, such as the popular in store ‘Pop in the Bath’ bubble bar.

Lush has made a perfume spray and a solid perfume in the past years as well. It’s only lately that Lush decided to make a body spray style sprayer.

I like the spray perfect better. It seems stronger. The Olive Branch isn’t my favorite scent to begin with but for those of you who love it you would be very pleased with the body spray, the scent really lasts.

Lush says you can spray it on the body or even on sheets or on your hair and clothes.

Only availablelable in the Uk

Lush Mother’s Day 2018

see my Lush Mother’s day 2018 haul unboxing video below! There are four more products aside from what are in Lush photo below so make sure you go down my list below that.

here is my YouTube unboxing video.

Lush North America celebrates Mothers Day in wMay, whereas the Uk and other places in Europe celebrate Mother’s Day in March.

As with Mother’s Day 2017 and every holiday, I’ve added photos, descriptions, my own video demos, reviews, etc

This year there are 2 Twilight scented bubble bars this year! One is a reusable bubble spinner called ‘Mum in a Spin’, and the other is a returning Mother’s Day bar called ‘Baa Bar’. This year Baa Bar is made with twilight bath bomb scent, instead of the ‘Bathos’ scent of precious years Baa Bar.

there is 1 Gourmet soap this year called ‘Raspberry Milkshake’. Lush has only made seven soaps that are in their ‘gourmet soap’ category so this is nice.

Also, Lush introduces 4 soaps with new formulations, and designs this Mothers Day! The soaps are made with a new shape so they stand up vertically.

Additionally, Lush has introduced 3D laser design for these four soaps. These soaps have a new look, with the design relative to the fragrance and ingredients. These soaps also have a new base, with bicarbonate of soda, glitter, or other things in them, in addition to the regular soap base.

Lush have made these limited edition soaps with more essential oils and fragrance so the scent of each bar stays through the life of the bar.

Regarding the four soaps, Chamomile Lawn , Rosebud, Lemon Zest and Purple Loosestrife; from what i’m understanding these new soaps are made in a different way. The designs are made via 3D laser cutting. Also, these soaps are made to stand up so they’re easier to hold and easier to stand up and be seen in the shower or bath.

They have more to stay on the skin after you’ve washed, and they’re full of luxurious skin moisturizing oils and butters.

Lush Ltd launched it’s on line “Lush Kitchen” mail order website in April 2014. The idea was to have a place to make small er batches of exclusive products available fresh for those of us with a taste for our favorite retro products that have been discontinued. It’s also a way to get pre-releases on new Lush Cosmetics creations, sneak-peeks, and one-off rarities and limited edition products, made one time only. They also make limited edition Lush perfumes, available only in the Lush Kitchen.

(I actually had the immense pleasure of meeting the lovely folks in this photo, when i was there a month before the Lush Kitchen opened for business.)

Here’s what Lush says: “What’s on the menu this week? Small, daily batches of exclusive products, made by hand and seasoned with behind the scenes gossip. This is an exclusive window into the world of Lush manufacturing, where the words ‘fresh’ and ‘handmade’ come to life.
Our compounders are cooking up a storm, experimenting with giant bath bombs and mixing up creative visions. Get a glimpse of limited edition recipes, and freshly dreamt up innovations.
We’re throwing open the doors, and you’re invited to take a look.
If you can’t get enough of the Lush Kitchen, we’re cooking up more posts on our other social media channels: Instagram @LushKitchen & Twitter @LushKitchen”

To purchase lush Uk kitchen products, we buy them here, the website is http://www.lush.co.uk/kitchen

Here’s an example of one daily menu of products that Lush made for Holidays, which were/are NOT Retro and which weren’t available in any stores nor on line on the lush website.

Demon in the Shower

I give this a 4.5 out of 5.  It gets a half point taken off because it’s very thin.


This is a minty and spicy shower gel with apple juice added. It smells more minty than anything, but with a spicy, clove note that goes well with the mint.  It’s both cold and hot if that makes sense.  Here’s a link to my sink demo video of this shower gel up close. And more of my review of this shower gel.


You won’t be taken to another site if you click on any of my videos.

Creme De Menthe

4 out of 5 rating

Glacially good breath is mint to be. In fact, it’s on the tipple your tongue. Make yours a double shot of mint for an intoxicating blast of icy coolness. Malic acid tickles your tastebuds with a smooth, juicy flavour, and enhances the spicy exhileration of bracing peppermint oil. Not shaken, not stirred: just straight up ice-cool refreshment.

This is my second favorite new Lush mouthwash.  This is the mintiest of the three new Lush mouthwashes.  If you want that classic mouthwash taste, this is the one for you.  It’s entirely minty and leaves a nice clean feeling to my teeth.  It just like using commcercial mouthwash.  I like that this creme de menthe mouthwash has a pretty green shimmer to it. That’s why i give this a 4 out of 5 rating.

After brushing your teeth, pop one tab into the mouth and take a sip of water to start the fizz. Nibble and swish before spitting out. They can also be used throughout the day whenever you fancy a bit or oral refreshment.

The use of a mouthwash should be the final step in the oral routine both in the morning and in the evening. It should not be used alone as a substitute for brushing or flossing. Avoid eating or drinking for half an hour after using the mouthwash for ultimate oral health.

 

Here’s a demo and review video i made of this creme de mente mouthwash

Twilight jelly

5 out of 5 rating See my close up demo & review video of this jelly below on the page.

The Lush.co.uk site made these ”Twilight” jellies for one day only and I was lucky enough to buy a couple. Lush made this jelly in their popular ‘Twilight’ bath bomb fragrance, which Has Lavender, and a creamy tonka bean note.

I love that Lush made these jellies in pink and blue. They’ve never done this two-color thing with a jelly.  I believe these colors were used because the Twilight Bath bomb emits pink and blue colors while dissolving in the bath.

Lush also makes a “Twilight” shower gel and a perfume that i have in the ‘Twilight’ scent and has made a liquid spray perfume in this scent as well.

An all natural scent of fresh lavender, creamy, vanillary tonka bean, and ylang ylang, coming from fresh ingredients. I got my order on Sept 6.




To me the Twilight scent is even better in the jelly form.  It’s sweeter, creamier, and a bit more ylang ylang floral than in thr twilight bath bomb or shower gel.  And another plus is that this lovely scent actually stays on the skin a longer than average amount of time. This is great.

Here’s a 6 minute video with music of it close up to see the shimmer. I wash my hands with it and chop it up, etc.

This a lovely currant (cassis) scented, limited edition Christmas soap is made with the same scent as Lush “Comforter”. 

Having silver reindeer carved into this maroon colored soap.

However, Christmas 2016 brings  a new color to this popular Christmas soap.

It’s not particularly moisturizing, but if you like the berryish scent of the Comforter scent this is a great way to enjoy that fragrance.

This is what it looks like sold by the 100g slice.
