2001 Yuletide LT description: One of the best things to turn up on Lush’s doorstep in 2001 was Noriko from our Japanese factory with her boundless enthusiasm for creating new Lush products. She will be absolutely delighted and hugely embarrassed to find that her massive fruity soap, decorated with jellies (which she calls “jerries”) has been named after her. If you like your soap smooth, creamy, and bursting with flowers then for this one with its delicious scents of far eastern ylang ylang and calming lavender all mixed in with rice, organic tofu (soya bean curd), and sake, Japanese wine.
LT 2004 description: This handmade soap has coloured seaweed jellies on top, and the scent of orange, ylang ylang, lavender and rose. We relished the softening feeling on our skin of Noriko’s uniquely Japanese mix: rice, sake, tofu and agar seaweed.
2001 Review: The large truckle of the instore Noriko soap had “jellies” on the top of various colors. This is such a fresh and feminine scent. It reminds me of walking in a garden area of greenery and flowers, right after it rains. Noriko seems to be one of two soaps that lather more than all the other Lush soaps. The other being Milko in my opinion. You have to have this fresh because it’s a delicate scent.
Orange, Lavender, ylang ylang and rose makes this soap smell just like the “Softy” ballistic but more subtle and not rose.
2004 Review: It’s less fresh rain and more floral then the original. Lovely. Again, this needs to be tried fresh because it’s a light rain-like scent, otherwise it won’t smell like anything but soap. Other Lush products in this scent; Christmas Softy bath bomb, Hedgehog bubble bar, Powder Puff deo, Eyeball bath bomb, Valentines 2022 Rose soap.
Here’s a Haul video i recorded for you today. I hope it helps your Valentine’s purchasing decisions. Ill add my individual written reviews and photos, including tub shots and demo vids of each of these here on this page with links over the next few days.

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.

Lush times 2003 Description: Perhaps most of us wonder if there’s anything we can do to help bring about world peace. If we’re not world leaders or diplomats or international peace keepers then a good way to start would be to be pleasant to everyone we meet, well behaved on the roads, polite and considerate to our friends and families and kind to complete strangers. Scale it up a bit and we’re there! ‘What’s that got to do with a Bath Ballistic?’ you may ask. It’s like this. The World Piece is made with pine oil from Russia for courage and constancy and peppermint, symbol of friendship and love, from the USA. We have sweetie oil, from an Israeli grapefruit bred to remove sourness, mixed with a secret perfume from the edges of the Arabian Sahara Kenyan cypress oil is said to soothe anger and calm down irritable people who won’t stop talking and start listening. Use them yourselves and send them to people who have a direct influence on ending conflicts. (Just be careful not to label the package ‘Bath Product’ not ‘ballistic’ or ‘bomb’ because that wouldn’t help.
Here’s a demo and review video i made of this bath bomb in the bath
