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.
@lush North Pole soap Made for one or two years as a limited edition Christmas soap in stores around 2009-2011 and on line.

The pink part is fragranced with a chocolately or cocoa, candyish fragrance, the white with a refreshing woody, minty fragrance.
I’ve added the second photo of the store version of it. In the stores it was a 6 inch wide x 2 feet pole. you could pick any piece you wanted; a huge round white slice or a huge pink slice or a piece with both pink and white. The store pieces were round, and the online or kitchen version rectangle.
It also came as a slice of the white part with a thinner pink part on top if you bought it online. The pink part smells a bit like a Peppermint Crisp bar, whilst the white part smells more like a mint flavoured rock candy. The original soap was a 6″ (or thereabouts) diameter pole shape that alternated between two Pink and two White sections.
Lush Times: How else will Santa find his way to Lush without a North Pole soap to guide his way?! This is for everybody who love to wash with soap (and frankly, who doesn’t?) This soap is fabulous for people who like stimulating, refreshing showers – with just a hint of luxurious indulgent sweetness. One slice is never enough – so buy two! The pink is fragranced with a chocolately chewy fragrance, the white with a refreshing woody, minty fragrance.
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.
This was more of a clarifying shampoo, good for getting the greeen out of blonde hair if one swims alot in chlroined water. Great lemony scent. This was a bit harsh on my hair and left tons of tangles. Just not for my hair type is all.
Lush 1999 description: Antiphilitron is for getting your hair clean when other shampoos don’t quite cut the mustard. What its fresh lemon juice, lemon oil and organic lemon peel mixture is good at is really getting hair squeaky clean, washing away grease, city grime or country muck and even chlorine from swimming pools. It also slices right through the silicones that get dumped on your hair by modern shampoos that make your hair smooth and shiny at first but then build up to make it a bit sad and lifeless. Fresh lemons make Antiphilitron smell fantastic, they perk up your hair and scalp and they help to revive your sleepy head in the morning. To greasy hair and grubby hair we say get Antiphilitron and get lively!
You have to get a good fresh piece to appreciate this. It’s creamy, banana-y and nice. It should smell like banana runts even though it is a natural, not fake, smell. It’s also a gentle soap.
2006 LT description: One of the things that irritates us just slightly is when we’re not having a good day is that it’s perfectly legal to call something banana soap when it doesn’t have any bananas in it, but merely a dab of synthetic banana fragrance. Our banana soap has lots of fresh bananas in it; we mash them up, mix them with yoghurt, soap flakes and essential oils and make a truly bananafied, moisturizing soap that smells of bananas because it’s full of them.
Lush Gumback Express shower smoothie, A Little Monkey bubble bar, and Banana Moon soap. All made in the same scent family.
Gumback Express was discontinued in the mid 2000’s and so was Banana Moon. I didn’t think Gumback Smootie smelled like bananas, but i did think the Banana moon did and Little Monkey did too. The soap was great for people with dry skin like me. Lush has made other banana product but they’re not in this scent family.
It’s said that this shares its scent with the Lush ‘Wintergarden’ bath bomb. But with the addition of Jasmine.
Jasmine Cream is a new limited edition bubble bar this year.
This Jasmine Cream bubble bar looks just like a jasmine flower.
How to use: Gently scented with a soft creamy filling, crumble under the running tap to release mounds of bubbles atop creamy white water. Jasmine and ylang ylang fill the air while skin-softening bubbles fill the bath.
How to store: Keep in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use this plastic-free bubble bath. A perfect Mother’s day gift
This Jasmine Cream bubble bar (and the Violet Cream bubble bar) have a creamy center.
This isn’t a reusable bubble bar, it’s a regular squishy kind of lush bubble bar.
The cream in this jasmine one is yellow.
It’s got some glitter in it but not a lot. And you can see it in the water but again it’s not a lot.

This is a new bubble bar for Mother’s Day 2021. Mother’s Day comes earlier in Europe than it is here in the U.S.
I think that, because of the remarkable design of it, and the lovely sweet violet scent, this is one of the best bubble bars Lush has made in years.
It’s a regular squishy bubble bar, not a reusable.
It’s just like a cream violet, it’s even got some cream in the middle.
Even though there is a mesmerizing green-blue colored glitter on the outside, this bar doesn’t make glittery water, in case you were curious.
Thi bar is worthy of my buying six more of them.
I’ll keep them in my dark closet or my dark lingerie drawer so the color stays as long as possible and i’ll keep them in something air tight so they don’t harden up.
These are only available for a limited time basis, just for Mother’s Day 2021.
This bubble bar makes lots of creamy bubbles.
Lush How to use suggestions: Crumble under running water and allow the uplifting violet and bergamot scented bubbles to build on top of skin-softening lilac waters. Smell familiar? This bubble bar shares a scent with our Daddy-o shampoo and conditioner range.
Lush How to store suggestions: Like any soft-centred treat, keep cool and dry until the moment of indulgence and feel good knowing the rose absolute is sourced from our regenerative rose projectin Pakistan.
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!
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.
Lush Times description: It IS real orange, sandalwood and violet leaf scent that are put into Choco La La and not ‘plastic’; as some of people have commented. They probably don’t realize that many of the scents they think are ‘natural’ are made in test tubes. If you try out this massage bar, you will experience the incomparable feeling of warmed cocoa butter and chocolate being smoothed into the skin, smell the revitalizing orange oil, the sandalwood to encourage relaxation and violet leaf to remember how to enjoy your sensuality. Do you get it? Perhaps it may be a little messy but it does wash out of your sheets and linen. Tap into your sense of adventure!
This is definitely one of my favorite lush massage bars. It looks like a little fancy chocolate dessert. It smells of chocolate (real chocolate smell, not fake chocolate) and violet leaf absolute (DaddyO, Bathos, Retread) It’s grittier than a lot of bars. It harder to rub in to your partners skin too, so you have to rub it in longer to get the brown chocolate in the skin. I give this 4 stars.
Here’s a short demo video and review i made of Lush Choco La La bar
This Halloween we have a new bath bomb called Bat Art (a play on the term bath art). The scent of this bath bomb is the Lush ‘Junk’ perfume scent. I have a video of my thoughts on the Lush Junk perfume that i have. While it’s not my favorite scent, i’m certain this bath bomb is going to be awesome no matter what it’s scent is 😊.
Its made in the Lush ‘Junk’ perfume scent, which is a fruity herbal scent. It has mandarin orange oil, lemon oil, Rosemary and Sage.
This is a slow, melty fizz type of bath bomb. It takes a nice, long time floating on top of the water, moving slowly all around the tub.
As i watched it a ribbon of bright blue started winding through the purple water. Soon a tail of pink started to appear. Then the best part, a trail of thick silver glitter trailed from the dissolving bat.
Be spellbound by this bat bath bomb. Full of bath-art worthy surprises, deep glittery waters await with a fresh, herbal scent that lingers.
How to use: Run a bath and drop in to reveal a spectacle before you descend into the dark purple waters. The rosemary and sage scent of Junk perfume will cleanse your aura.
How to store: Keep cool and dry until ready to release this plastic-free Halloween bath bomb.
Sparkly black, Pink and blue, silver glitter, and dark purple water.
I love this!
It’s not as easy to clean the tub after letting the water out. Not because of the black color…but because of the glitter. Just Some light wiping down and then rinsing again was necessary to get all the glitter that was stuck to the bottom. But this bomb was so worth it.
