Mimosa in the moonlight. I knew this smell right away, I used to walk around these trees at my fathers house that had the fuzzy lavender colored flowers on it and the smell was heavenly. A sweet yet powdery flower the mimosa. It is lavender in color and fuzzy like a soft pink brush. Sometimes it smells like a light melon scent too. Mimosa is what the “Sakura” ballistic is scented with. This has no color in the water.
Lush 2006 description: Sakura is the japanese name for cherry blossom which aptly describes this pretty pale pink ballistic. Sakura is dappled with bursts of pale green that rise up to a bright pink and green layer of exfoliating sea salt at the top of the bomb
This has been one of Lush’s regular year round bath bombs since 2004 or so. And its still sold in stores today.
Its a fast dissolving fizzing type of bath bomb, not a slow, melty, foam typeof bomb. It has a lovely floral scent with blue and pink salt crystals on the top.
Do Not look any further if you want the lush Christmas products to be a surprise. 😊
I’ve reviewed and have demo videos here of all the returning Christmas products.
I’ll be adding what kind of products these are very soon and group them by category ‘bombs, bubble bars, soaps’, etc. Then as usual i’ll be adding each product picture, description, scent family, etc. during the next days all the way up to Christmas.
Products will be available to purchase on the UK site the third week of September.
As i do every year i will order all of the Halloween 2021 products as soon as they come out on the us site, then when they get here i’ll use each product and post pictures, videos, my reviews of each of them here. 😊 just click on the product name links below to see the pics, my reviews, etc.
If i’m not mistaken Monsters Ball bath bomb and Bewitched bubble bar are not returning this Halloween . 👀
Created exclusively (along with five other lotions that we voted on) in 2015 for the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen. Never sold to the public. I remember buying 3 at that time.
Up for the vote for the July 2021 Lush subscription box.
Unfortunately, especially because i am around photography and video equipment a lot, it was way too greasy for my skin. I left greasy spots all over every table that i sat at for dinner, it left a greasy residue on everything i touched. Wonderful smell! But i just couldn’t use it, so i held a giveaway and gave away the other two unopened pots i had bought. I like the Yog Nog body milk much more as it’s not so thick and oily as the lotion in the pot.
Made as a limited edition for Christmas 2010-2011 only. And remade for the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen in 2014. It’s up for the vote again for the Lush Kitchen July 2021 Subscription Box
This has a nice, Christmas punch kind of scent. Having cinnamon, orange juice, Okum, buchu oil, davana oil, and petigrain oil. All very fruity notes. The original version had tequila in it (like the punch that it’s named after), but for some reason they took it out. When they did that it changed the smell. It lost its bright note, but it’s still a nice scent.
Lush made a perfume of this exclusively for one day only on the Uk website in 2014.
Lush ‘Icing on the Cake’ smoothie rhoulade had the ponche scent as well.
Lush Times: Ay! Ay! Ay! It’s Christmas! Do not fear the winter blue, dear amigos! Take a shot of this zesty tequila and lime gel in your shower for amorning fiesta, sure to wake even the sleepiest morning monsters. Ponche was invented after a member of Lush HQ traveled through Mexico and enjoyed their traditional fruity party punch. Bring on the tequila!
hHere’s a demo and review video i did of this shower gel.
This was an exclusive made in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen that i bought. They had numerous products turned into lotion that week in the kitchen in 2014.
Grass lotion was made in the Lush ‘Grass’ scent, which smells like fresh, green grass. It all started with the Grass bubble bar in 2014. The bubble bar was only available for awhile and only certain stores. Then all the other products you see came after. ‘Autumn Leaf’, ‘Grass shampoo bar, The Mother’s day ‘Bubble Grub Bug’ bubble bar, ‘exclusive Lush ‘No Animal Testing’ soap, Grass shower gel, and not shown in my pic are the ‘Grass’ perfume oil, and the Grass body spray.
I LOVE the perfume oil best and this lotion the least. I don’t know if i bought one from a bad batch or what but it was very disappointing. Very thin, hardly any scent.
This lotion is the least ‘grass’ smelling of all the grass products.
How to use: Run a bath and release the delicately floral scent for luxurious milky, soothing waters topped with pearlescent lustre for a bath bomb and oil in one.
How to store: When only the best will do this Mother’s Day. Keep in a cool, dry place until you’re ready for a moisturising soak.
Pearl bath bomb looks like a giant pearl. It’s white and has a pearlescent sheen on the top half of the bomb.
When i first took it out of my order box i feel absolutely in love with the scent. On my video i said it smells like vanilla icing.
Lush definitely needs to make a perfume of this. I felt so strongly about this that i contacted Mark the creator and owner of Lush about this.
Pearl doesn’t change the water color nor does it product bath art. But it doesn’t have to because it’s one of those bombs like ‘So White’ or ‘Snow Drop’ that are white and foamy and dance all over the tub. This Pearl does this back and forth rocking movement the whole time it’s in the tub. It’s quite charming as it shakes itself all around letting go of some beautiful white shimmer in the water.
The incredible scent stayed on my skin and when i put on my robe even my robe smelled like vanilla icing with roses. Gorgeous!
Some of these I’ve already used and reviewed here in my blog, just click the link. The rest I’ll buy and post Photos and demo videos and such of these when i get my order. I’m going to be adding Easter and Mother’s Day products on their own page too tomorrow

Winter garden reminds me of an old school Lush bath bomb. Back then their bones didn’t really make ‘bath art’ with the foam, in fact they weren’t foamy they were fizzy only. And the bombs would have flowers or other things in them.
Winter Garden bath bomb is like this. It’s a smaller bomb, like the size of the Butterball bath bomb from Lush.
It looks like fairies made it, it’s tiny, real pink, yellow and blue flower petals in it. It smells like a fairy garden too. A brilliant floral scent that is new.
It doesn’t color the water. What it lacks in size it makes up for in scent. So pretty that Lush asked everyone to vote for five new body sprays and what fragrances we would like and Wintergarden was one of the five that won and was made into a body spray.
I would rate this a 4 out of 5. I liked it so much i bought two more.
Winter garden body spray is one of five exclusive new December 2020 body sprays out of nine that we voted on via the Lush Labs site. Winter Garden scent is from the Christmas 2020 bath bomb of the same name. Lush hasn’t made this scent before in a bath bomb, body spray nor any product.
It’s always exciting when Lush creates a new product with a new scent that has a really great scent. Winter Garden bath bomb is this kind of product, so it’s no wonder we voted for this to be made into a body spray.
Winter Garden is a floral scent with the primary note of ylang ylang. It smells pretty. It’s a somewhat more complex floral scent to my nose than some other Lush florals. Winter florals are represented here, on top of the bath bomb are yellow, pink and blue flower petals. They look so small and delicate and perfect, like fairies placed them there.
I sprayed a good single spray on each fore arm. Right off the bat the scent of different kinds of flowers came alive on my skin. It made me go ‘oooh!’. You have to love the scent of flowers to like this body spray, so if you’re not a florals person you may want to smell this in store if you can first. there is no citrus, fruity notes in this fragrance. Nothing that smells sweet nor anything bakery like. it’s not earthy smelling at all, nor are there any green or woody notes that i can pick out. Just a beautiful layering of florals. It’s smells like a winter wedding bouquet.
While i do like citrus scent,and all scents actually, i am a florals person by nature. Some of my most favorite Lush perfumes and Lush bath products have floral scents. Lush doesn’t make them too much anymore like they used to in the early 2000’s.
That’s why this body spray fragrance is so special to me.
It’s dried down on my arm now and it’s still quiet strong. It still maintains the complexity of the fragrance. it gets a wee bit more powdery as it dries, which is nice actually, it’s not so alcohol-y as it was when wet.
I will say that the scent is very ylang ylang forward. So if you don’t like ylang ylang..
I always have my husband smell it too and tell me what it smells like to him. My husband said he couldn’t quite tell but that it was nice. i said ‘it’s floral’. I knew he had bad experiences with florals. He tells me of when he was young and his school teacher used to come to his desk wearing a floral perfume that was so obnoxious it made him sick. When i asked him tonight’s s this perfume like your teachers floral perfume?’ He said ‘not at all’. I take that as a good sign. 🙂
I would recommend this. And i would rate it a 4 out of 5 rating.
Here’s a video that i created where i review, describe, rate each of the five new body sprays including Winter Garden.
I’ve tried two other exclusive Lush body milks and have recorded up close demos of the body milks below, so you can see how these body milks are.
When i buy my Christmas products and they’re delivered- i’ll write my reviews, post my tub bath water photos and video demo here for you. 😊
I’ve bought and used the exclusive Lush Yog Nog body lotion (in my group photo below) and it was too much for me. Too greasy. So i was wary about this yog nog body milk. But this sinks in so much better. And it leaves you feel moisturized but not greasy. And it smells delicious!
I took a photo of all the Lush Yog Nog products made throughout the years. If you’ve had one of these you know how this body milk will smell like.
heres a video of me showing up close a couple of Lush body milks.
If you’re in need of a bit of a fix up, your own personal flurry of bubbles awaits to help you let off some steam. Let go of all your worries with this magical mint chocolate snowflake that will thaw even the most frozen of hearts.
You’ll love this if you like:
– Peppermint hot chocolates.
– Chocomint bath bomb, Haagenbath bath bomb Mint Julips lip scrub or Butterball bath bomb. – Warm hugs!
– Cocoa absolute and peppermint oil create a sweet chocolate mint fragrance that invigorates the skin. Put them together and it just makes sense.
– Wash away the storm with antimicrobial sea salt. Its astringent properties cleanse your skin without stripping away natural oils.
– These magical bubbles can’t be concealed by a bottle. Set them free from plastic packaging with this naked bubble bar.
How to use: Do you wanna build a bubble bath? Sweep your bubble bar across the water or ‘let it go’ in the bath while the tap is running to create peaks of frozen bubbles.
How to store: The cold never bothers this bubble bar, so keep it somewhere cool and dry. Or Elsa, you’ll find out what happens to frozen things in summer!
see my tub demo video below. The dark sparkle is like the night sky during an eclipse.
Take a bath, bright eyes
Do you need a soak tonight? Do you need it more than ever? Sink into the darkness of inky blue waters laced with
shimmering sparkle and lift your mood with lemongrass, peppermint and eucalyptus blue oils.
Lush made this in the Outback Mate soap scent. The scent is made with Lemongrass, mint and eucalyptus.
The soap and bubble bar in the back are both the same scent as Eclipse. The cone shaped blue and white bubble bar is called ‘Outback Mate’ bubble bar and was made exclusively for the November 2020 Lush Uk Kitchen subscription box.
You’ll love this if you like:
– Soaring through the night sky in velvety blue waters with just a touch of shimmer.
– Refreshing scents like Avobath bath bomb, Outback Mate soap or Not Sleepy shower bomb. – Taking a bath if every now and then you fall apart.
– Lemongrass oil is antiseptic and toning on your skin.
– Eucalyptus blue oil helps to clear and balance your mind.
– Peppermint oil gives your skin a gentle tingle whilst having a cooling and soothing effect.
How to use: If you don’t know what to do, just crumble in the bath, swirl around the midnight water and watch out for the sparks.
How to store: Keep under the cover of darkness and in a dry place until you’re ready for your tides to turn.
