Polar Bear soap

This isn’t the same scent as this Christmas’PolarBear bubble bar. This one has coconut, orange and mint.

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. 😊

Orange scrub

This is a new, limited edition product this year. When i get the Christmas order i’m placing on the Lush uk website in two weeks i’ll review it here, take more detailed photos, and record using it at the sink close up.

This has orange oil, red Mandarin, tangerine oil, bergamot and orange peel! Oranges are one of my favorite smells so i bet i’ll love this.

Beauty Sleep

5 out of 5 rating. See my video below where i apply it and review it.

Mark Constantine, owner of Lush Uk wanted to have a little fun so he decided to work with Helen Ambrosen on a new face and body mask.

They made it by adding a teaspoon of gorgeous moisturizer and then they added the ingredients to ‘Sleepy’, Lavender, Yang ylang and Tonka.

when they finalized the product he announced that they will let us have a crack at naming the product. So people submitted they’re names and a handful of people chose ‘Beauty Sleep’ and this is the name that won.

it’s a perfect name. the mask smells amazing! if you know what the gorgeous moisturizer smells like you can imagine that plus sleepy.

instructions recommend slathering it on your face and your arms, neck, chest, back, stomach and then let it stay on your skin for 10-20 minutes while you’re in the tub or in the shower. Then after that time just rinse it off.

it’s got ground adult beans for exfoliating and it’s LOADED with many moisturizing ingredients.

it’s a beautiful pinkish lavender color.

“Aluxurious clay face mask, which includes a spoonful of our most decadent moisturiser, Gorgeous, for a boost of hydration. The perfect step in your evening skincare routine, to help you #getyourbeautysleep.

“The combination of lavender and neroli is even more soothing than I anticipated. I noticed a significant improvement in my stress level within minutes. Skin feels soft and smooth afterwards. – bethanyjoyhall

“From its lavender and neroli scent that calms the mind…to its freshly ground Aduki beans, fresh coconut, honey, kaolin, and talc which calm and soothe the skin-this face mask is a 10/10 for me! It left my skin feeling calm, moisturized, and toned all at once.” – LaredoLushies

How to use
Run a warm bath, put on some relaxing music and apply this beautiful face mask to clean skin. Sit back and relax. Inhale the neroli and let the valerian and lemon verbena get to work. Once you’re feeling relaxed and ready for bed, rinse away with warm water.

Lo and Behold when those of us who bought the Lush Kitchen subscription box from Lush Uk opened up our June boxes we found a surprise: a container of Beauty Sleep face and body mask. Yay!

List of ingredients

As far as Lush masks go i really like this one. it made my skin feel cleansed and moisturized and it smelled gorgeous. Using it before bed was a good idea since the ingredients in ‘Sleepy’ (twilight) are conducive to sleep.

Karma bath melt pyramid

30g

Karma scent

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter. Laureth 4, Gold Sparkles, Almond Oil, Perfume, Patchouli Oil , Orange Oil , Lavendin Oil , Pine Oil , Lemongrass Oil , Elemi Oil , Gardenia Extract.

Review: This is a pyramid shaped (the one on the left is a little less pyramid-like LOL), it has gold glitter and smells of Lush’s signature “Karma” scent. This is a wonderful smelling and skin softening melt. It has tns of cocoa butter. You simply put it in the bath water after it’s filled and it melts with the hot water and leaves little trails of beautiful golden glitter. You can also smoosh it up under the running water while the bath is filling up too. It’ll work either way. But beware…it has LOADS of glitter. You will have glitter everywhere (including your friends clothing, your dog and your husband) for a couple of days. I loved this melt and I wish it were still around.

Yuletide 2001 Lush Times description: Fake perfumes are so good these days that city dwellers have almost lost the ability to appreciate real scents what with the synthtic smells of coffee, bread and burgers pumped out to attract us to use their sources. There are some very beautiful synthetic perfumes (and there’s even one in Karma) but we prefer the real thing, perfumes made from flowers just like the great, great, great, great, great grandfather would have done if he hadn’t been too busy diggeing coal. Why? Because we don’t just use them for the scent; we use them for the effect on the mind and body. This is why a Bath Melt scented with Karma is so lovely; it softens and moisturizes your skin as well as scenting it. Try our new little pyramid of perfume in your bath and feel what we mean….

Easy Peeler

5 out of 5 rating

Lush has introduced two or more new exclusive body scrubs at their new mega store in the Lush Liverpool spa. This ‘Easy Peeler’ body scrub is one of them.

It smells and looks like an orange. Slightly sweet. These new Lush sugar scrubs are much less hard and scratchy than their former style of sugar scrubs.

These are for exfoliating rough dry skin and also conditions for moisturizing the smooth skin that is left behind.

I recorded a close up sink arm demo of it for you below to see how it works.

The exfoliating is done with sugar crystals that are mixed in with the cocoa butter. So its a gentler scrub than the former more agressive lush scrub bars.

I would recommend these. They dont fall apart after one use. These can be used again and again a few times without becoming a mess.

My skin feels soft, not greasy and moisturized. I dont feel like i have something on my skin. It just feels like my skin onky moisturized and soft.

Wild Butterfly

5 out of 5 rating

Lush has introduced three beautiful bath bombs for Spring 2019. it’s a new design which they made for their new concept store in Harajuku Japan.

For Spring 2019 Lush has made three colors. Of the three i like the scent of purple and blue one the most, then the green one, then the orange one in that order.

I love the gorgeous sunset colored bath art that this Wild Butterfly makes.

See my 2 minute bath video with this gorgeous thing below. I describe the scent in detail in my video. 🙂

Aubergine

5 out of 5 star rating.

See my 2 minute Tub Demo Video below 🙂

 

Aubergine is what the people in the Uk call Eggplant. it’s an eggplant shaped bath bomb…for Valentine’s 2019.

It’s made in the Lush signature ’29 High Street’ perfume fragrance.

Lush sells an exclusive perfume that is made to smell like a lush store. it has that Lush smell.

Pia, the lovely person who created the original scent (called HQ) explained to me how she created the scent, and what lush store product scents were used to create the fragrance. Karma, Honey i washed the kids, happy hippy, etc.

The result is a sweet, orange citrus with a floral background. it’s strong, heady and perfume-y. The fragrance has lots of expensive ingredients.

it does indeed smell just like a Lush shop.

This bath bomb produces a slow foaming fizz, with hues of purple, green, pink and blue. And a drop dead gorgeous hue of deep, jewel toned purple, with purple shimmer throughout.

Here is my 2 minute Tub Demo Video

 

I’m glad i got six.

Little Pot of Energy

This is a solid/naked packageless body lotion exclusive to the LushLabs at lush.co.uk

While i did not like the previous naked body lotion ‘Once Upon a Time’ that lush made for Christmas 2017, this one, Little Pot of Energy, is different.

Its not oily nor greasy. Its a drier consistency than ive seen before. Almost how a dry deo goes on. Theres no tacky feeling when you apply it.

I like the smell. Its made with oranges and grapefruit, as i explain in my demo and review video below.

the bottom line is that this works for me. it moisturizes my skin without feeling oily, and it snells great.

i would actually use this everyday, and i might even buy another one.

Lush: Move mountains. Fight lethargy. Deliver a dose of vitalising citrus straight to the skin. It’s a bolt of lightening to the brain: a sweep of orange puree that’s electric sharp to sniff but smooth as butter on your body thanks to a base of Fair Trade Colombian cocoa butter. Supercharge your skin with a sweep of brightening orange and grapefruit pulp and reboot your mind with a perfume flavour so fresh you can nearly taste it. Motivation’s never been this mouthwatering.

List of ingredients

Fair Trade Colombian Cocoa Butter

Orange Puree

Pink Grapefruit Puree

Almond Oil

Fair Trade Shea Butter

Japan Wax

Carnauba Wax

Grapefruit Oil

Perfume

*Citral

*Citronellol

*Limonene

*Linalool

Orangutan

Made with patchouli, orange.

It’s similar to Lush ‘Karma’ fragrance but not exact, it’s not a scent twin imo, even though it shares some ingredients.

It’s less orangey than ‘Karma”  kind of a green and wooden scent with some orange.

see my review and demo video below 🙂

It’s quite strong, and I can’t stop sniffing it.  It’s such a different scent, nothing around quite like it except as I said Karma is somewhat similar. It’s less of a heady scent than Karma, more natural.

Men would also love this scent as well as woman.

Revelation

4 out of 5 rating

The new 2017 Revelation has the scent of Berry Berry Christmas, not the Potion scent as the one in my review below is made from. Berry berry christmas and thus the new Revelation bath oil, have a lushious, fruity, orange scent. This 2017 revelation isn’t spicy, nor floral, as the one i reviewed below is. The one i had was just a prototype. 🙂

The prototype from the Lush Summit has a spicy scent.  I like the scent. It smells like carnation oil and cloves and was made in the Lush ‘Potion’ lotion scent, also having rose, tangerine.

The new one has orange and bergamot in it and I quite like the new scent. the new one is also a 4 out of 5 rating.

See my tub demo of it video below

Bling Crosby

4 out of 5 rating

lushblingcrosby2008b

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, FD&C Red No. 4, Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Lavendin Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Pine Oil (Pinus), Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogan flexuosus), Elemi Oil (Canarium commune), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Glitter

 

This is a beautiful bubble bar with it’s orangey-gold glitter.  It has the scent of Lush’s “Karma” fragrance which is orangey, not sweet at all, earthy with patchouli, and a bit of pine. A unisex scent. It leaves a pale orange colored water and TONS of bubbles. There is also glitter in the water. The glitter doesn’t stick on you like the Karma melt but mostly gets washed down the drain if you use a squirt of shower gel in the water. Bling Crosby is so pretty and festive.

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.

Karma bubble bar new style

Karma 5 out of 5 rating

Same signature Karma scent, orange, pine, patchouli, but in an absolutely STUNNING new style. Of all the new lush products this is my favorite looks-wise.  I cannot stop staring at it. My three colors are green, orange and purple, so this bar has two of my favorite colors. Not the only reason i like it though.

Dusky oranges, patchouli and pine. It smells like the classic “head shop”.  Kind of an incense-y hippy-ish vibe.   I happen to love oranges in anything, but this is so different because it’s not a sweet orange.  Not a desserty or ‘yummy’ orange.  Nor is it citrussy in the classic sense.  A most different fragrance; earthy.  I always try keep a few of these around.

Here’s a video of what this beauty looks like in the tub

Happy Accident

Happy Accident is an “Oops” bubble bar made in the UK in Early 2007. It has a lovely peach pink color. It smells to me like Amandopondo bubble bar as it does have a rose and citrus scent, and then mixed it with he scent of Lush ‘Happy’ bubble bar. Then again, it does smell a bit like the Lush bath bomb ‘Absolute Delight’. Not exactly positive what that lovely scent is…

 

Plum Rain 


5 outof5 rating.

I LOVE this shower gel. This is a New Shower gel that I received at Lush Oxford Street, made with Umeboshi plums, petigrain, orange, and osmanthus.

Here’s a close up demo and review video i made of this shower gel at the sink

It’s Fruity, slightly sweet, and almost smells like peaches and apricots, but its from the scent of the osmanthus.

There’s a pretty shimmer to the gel.

A couple of people on the Uk forum say it smells sort of like grape soda to them.

mandarins.


 

Sonic Death Monkey

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


Ingredients:
 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.

Marathon

As I crumbled the soft deep orange bar with a paper flag of differing countries embedded in it, I smelled a wonderfully spicy blend of what smelled to me like oranges, peppermint or eucalyptus, and some eastern Indian spices. When I got in the water, this is a bar that I could feel working on my sore muscles in seconds. The smell and the feeling of the bars ingredients reminded me of the now discontinued Lush ballistic “Fizzy O’Therapy”, which had mustard seed oil in it. But Marathon is better. During this bath I wondered if this Marathon bar had mustard oil as well and apparently so. This bar makes a very noticeable difference with regard to sore muscles and being achey. If you’ve just run a Marathon or done any work that makes your muscles achey and sore, Marathon is a great one to have around. It reminds me of the feeling of that old nasty aching muscles rub called “Deep Heat”, not the smell but the way it made your muscles heat up in a very noticeable way? Yep. Marathon smells like…Fizzy O’Therapy ballistic. I can still feel it’s effects and it’s been an hour since I got out of the tub. It’s heating properties keep going even after the bath. Because of attractiveness, bath water color, and mostly the way it works, this bubble bar gets 4 stars from me.

Notes: “Marathon” and “Wiccy Magic Muscles” cinnamon and mint massage bar are a team for sore muscles.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow bath bomb

5 out of 5 rating

See my demo video below

This is a beautiful, limited edition bath bomb from Lush Oxford Street in the UK.  It shares it’s scent with the Easter time Lush soap of the same name.  I love it, it’s an innocent floral with a tad of a citrus note.  Rose oil, neroli oil and orange oil.

 

file-sep-25-5-11-53-pm

This is a slow fizzing bath bomb, which i love, and which gives it the time it needs to unfurl the gorgeous rainbow of colors in the tub.

The scent is medium strong, no complaints there.  It stays on the skin a decent amount of time.

It’s not a gender-neutral scent, meaning it’s highly floral, but in a soft, pretty way.

Here are some photos I took, along with a demo and review video below.
