Kim the Carrot

This is a New, limited edition bubble bar for Valentines 2022. It’s a new shape and a new Vanilla scent.

After i buy one I’ll add more info pics and video when i get them.

Rose soap Valentine’s 2022

Rose

This is a new soap that will be coming out for Valentines 2022.

I love the Lush Valentines soaps quite a bit. I’ve been buying Lush Valentines soaps every year since 2001. For the past few years Lush has reference to a Rose on their Valentines soap. This one is beautiful with a pink color and a rose carving on top in a different shade of pink. I can’t wait to see the whole extra large store display soap of this. i’ll take pics of that when i do. i plan on buying one as soon as they come out, and will take more pics and make a vid of it at the sink for you.

This soap was made with the Lush ‘Softy’ scent. It’s a beautiful light rose, orange, and ylang ylang scent. It’s a soft powdery rose with little bits of rose petals in it.

Lush has made a few items in the ‘Softy’ scent;

Christmas Hedgehog bubble bar

Noriko soap

Powder Puff Deoderant – I’m adding my pic and review of this tomorrow.

Eyeball bath bomb

Softy bath bomb

Softy

4 out of 5 rating

This was one of my favorite bath bombs in 2003. To me it was so soft, feminine and pretty. It was a light, beautiful Rose scent, with some yummy orange oil and floral ylang ylang.

Lush made a few other products in this same scent; Eyeball bath bomb, Christmas Hedgehog bubble bar, Powder Puff Deo powder, Noriko soap, and the Valentine 2022 ‘Rose’ soap.

Lush sold this for a few years and then discontinued it in mid to late 2000’s to make room for new bath bomb.

Softy has pieces of rose petals in it. No glitter, no bath art, but it makes a pretty pale pink water. If you don’t like bits in your bath you can put it in a kitchen strainer and let the water pour on it so that just the bath bomb part is dissolved in your bath tub.

Noriko soap

Noriko

Ingredients: rice decoction, sake, tofu, agar decoction, perfume, ylang ylang petal oil, lavender oil, rose absolute, glycerine, sodium chloride, sodium lauryl sulfate, tetrasodium EDTA, titanium dioxide, gardenia extract, color 18050 & 61585

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.

Luxe bath bomb

4 out of 5 rating

The New Lush Cosmetics ‘Luxe’ bath bomb. I just uploaded a Tub Demo of it on my lushalot youtube channel down below.

This is one of 5 new bath bombs in the U.S. and 7 in the UK

Its gorgeous in the tub holy cow. Its made with the Lush classic ‘Lust’ perfume scent. Lots of Jasmine.

How to use:

Run your bath and drop in this seductive cocktail of jasmine, vanilla and sandalwood. The hydrating boost bakuchi oil brings benefits that go way beyond bathing in this luxury bath bomb.

How to store:

Keep cool and dry until you are ready for the ultimate levelled up bathing luxury.

Did you know?

Bakuchi oil is a great natural alternative to Retinol, and has many of the same benefits such as stimulating collagen production, reducing pigmentation and promoting skin elasticity.

Its absolutely beautiful and has a different color scheme for Lush. The only reason its not a 5 out of 5 is because i have always absolutely hated the Lush ‘Lust’ scent, which Luxe is made from. 😄 But i wanted you to see how beautiful it is in the tub so..

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Perfume,

Rose Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Sandalwood Oil, Cold Pressed Bakuchi Oil.

Alcohol, *Citronellol, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 77491, Colour 45410:2, Colour 42090:2, Colour 15850:1, Colour 17200, Colour 19140:1, Colour 42090, Colour 77499, Colour 77266

Its a muted purple cor with gold sparkle. 😍

The color sticks to the side of the tub so there is a bit of clean up.involved after.

Squid Games shower jelly

5 out of 5 rating see my demo video below

Its a large size jelly in the shape of a squid.

It has the scent of ylang ylang flower, patchouli, lemongrass and Ho wood. It smells like an expensive mens cologne or something. I love the scent.

Also, the scent has somestaying power after you use it which i like.

I Would give this a high rating because its really cute, it works well without drying my skin, it smells great and the scent lasts.

Its scent is from another product that Lush made before they called themselves Lush, when they were a company called Cosmetics To Go in the 90’s. The product was called ‘Damp Squid’ and it was a bath bomb.

I still have my old pictures of my Damp Squid bath bomb.

Posh chocolate body wash

5 out of 5 star rating See my Demo Video below

This deliciously self-centred chocolate body wash is packed with aloe vera and glycerine to soften and hydrate delicate skin.

How to use:

Completely vegan friendly, this is a great body wash for dry skin. Scoop out a good handful and inhale the rich cocoa aroma while you work it all over your body then rinse off. 

  • VEGAN
  • 100% RECYCLED POT

Deliciously hydrating and softening. Thisis the best product Lush has created in quite awhile. This smells more like straight up chocolate than any of the other chocolate things that Lush has made. It does remind me of the scent of Lush Walter Bunny scrub.

I describe the texture in my video below but it feels like a chocolate mouse in thepot and feels like silk when you rub it on your body.

Sleepy bath bomb

This is one of many products only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar gift set.

Lush Uk had a Sleepy pop up event in September October 2021 time frame. They had many exclusive Sleepy products not available in stores. This Sleepy bomb was one of them. Lush Uk decided to add it to the Christmas Advent Calendar gift set as an exclusive amongst all the other goodies in the calendar gift set.

See below for my 3 minute Tub Demo Video.

Sleepy bomb reminds me of the Lush Uk ‘Sleeping Giant’ bath bomb. I think Sleepy bomb is a miniature version of it.

This Sleepy bomb has such a gorgeous periwinkle blue color! 😍

Sleepy is a quiet, slow melting kind of bomb, not the fast fizzing type.

It looks like some kind of melting blackberry dessert doesn’t it? 😊

There’s a bit of very dark blue almost black color inside the bath bomb that’s surprising.

There are multiple colors in here, violet, lilac, black, gold. Lots of bath art opportunities 😄

The gold is actually shimmery stuff. And the gold shimmer gets dispersed in the purple water and it’s just beautiful.

I’d rate this a 5 out of 5 rating.

These aren’t like the Lush halloween 2021 products which glow under UV light. These are glow in the dark. Here is what the stars and moon look when you turn off the lights.

Some folks were asking me what these moon and stars are made out of. Many folks thought they were a bath melt as i did, but they are made out of what feels like plastic. They don’t melt.

Twilight

This above is ‘Twilight’ bath bomb sold in Lush stores. The ‘Sleepy’ bomb is the same scent. Both made with floral Ylang Ylang , Sweet creamy Tonka bean, and Bright herbal Lavendar. I asked the creator Alessandro and he stated that ‘Yes. They are the same scent’, just different names. Not complaining. I’d love to use both of these in a bath cocktail. Unfortunately there is only one in the Advent Calendar gift set.

Bathing is believing, run your bath and drop in. With a playful perfume of bergamot, davana and jasmine, reveal your magic with this unicorn bath bomb.

This bath bomb is made with the classic Lush ‘Cocktail’ scent, and then Lush adds some strawberry to that. It’s a sweet, slightly fruity floral, with some slight earthiness. Rose, Jasmine, Ho Wood

Merry Christmas shower gel

5 out of 5 rating

See my 4 minute Up close sink demo where i wash my hands with it and you can see how much lather it has, how thick it is, etc.

Lush has created three new Christmas shower gels this year which are different than anything theyve made before. One of them is only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar Gift. There are 6-8 exclusive Christmas products only available in the Advent calendar.

Merry Christmas shower gel is quite a surprise to me. There are so many things about it that i like.

The color is a rich red, and it has gold sparkles in it. They settle at the bottom but i just shake it up to distribute the sparkke all throughout the shower gel.

Goodness. It looks like a ruby in the sun.

The scent is another surprise. It smells like a cherry. A chocolate covered cherry. It has a scent very similar to the Lush ‘Cherryish’ bodyscrub.

The ingredients are Aloe, Cocoa Absolute (chocolate), and Almond Oil. Its no wonder it smells like cherry.

The consistency is nice and thick.

I wish it was a bigger size. I love it.

It is pretty sweet. Some might find it too sweet. I dont find this to be the case. But i like things like Lush ‘Happy Blooming’ scent, which some find too sweet.

I pray that Lush will make this as an ‘in stores and online’ shower gel next Christmas.

Heres a video showing the consistency, lather, etc

Twilight bath bomb

5 out of 5

Lush introduced this bath bomb around 2008 or 2009. That’s when i had my first Twilight bomb. The name comes from the time there was a very popular new movie called ‘Twilight’.

When Lush first made their Twilight bath bomb it was very popular with Lushies, and its maintained the same popularity ever since.

Not only does it look like the night sky (twilight) with stars and moons on the outside of the bomb, it also makes two different colors in the tub as it dissolves; pink and blue, but it also has a beautiful silver shimmer in the water. The blue and pink eventually mix in the water to become a lavender color.

Then there is the scent. Its a genius mix of bright herbal fragrance of lavender which promotes relaxation and sleep but there is also Tonka bean which smells similar to vanilla bean but tonka is more of a caramely scent. Then lastly there is the lovely floral notefrom the ylang ylang flower. The twilight fragrance is only subtley sweet and comforting.

Its such a gorgeous scent that Lush has used in many other products that i’ll list below which they have made. I also show these products in my scent family photos below.

Sleepy shower bomb

Lush has recently (in 2020) changed the name from Twilight to ‘Sleepy’. The reason they changed it may have somethibg to do with the movie’s copyright s.

But the President/CEO of Lush said that sleepy is the same scent as twilight, only the name has changed.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lavender Oil, Benzoin resinoid, Tonka Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil, Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, *Coumarin, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 42090, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Colour 45410, Iridescent Glitter

Lush Times: Everyone seems to be in love with twilight at the moment. Whether it’s the film series or that enchanting period betwixt day and night, we can’t work it out. If you’re stressed out and feeling like a member of the un-dead, this relaxing ballistic will stake all of your troubles and scatter them to the winds with scents of lavender and Ovaltine.

The Big Snow Fairy Roll

The Big Snow Fairy Roll is new. It’s a 1 kilo version of the Snow Fairy Roll. The ‘regular size’ Snow Fairy Roll is like two regular bubble bars and THIS Big SFR is even more huge.

Its the same size as this Big Comforter in my phoro below.

Squeak

4 out of 5 rating

See my demo video below

Made with big chunks of sea salt and lots of yummy tropical fruits such as mango, papaya, pineapple, lemon, and kiwi. Smells even more fruity and delicious than Lush I Love Juicy shampoo.

It’s a thick consistency, sort of like the consistency of Big liquid shampoo. I attached a vid to show the texture.

This is made for fine, limp hair and oily i normal hair. It’s not for my dry, thick, wavy hair.

After using it I can totally see how this woukd make thin hair thicker. It works well for that.

A little goes a long way. I have long hair. You have to make sure you rinse your hair well to get the small salt chunks out of your hair. It smells so good.

This was a surprise in the Lush July 2021 subscription box.

Have you tried it? Do you like it? Or not so much?

I wonder if Lush will have it in stores for the general public or if it will stay an exclusive one time thing.

Here is my video

Plum Duff shower gel

3 out of 5. See my Demo and Review Video below

This is one of three shower gels for Christmas 2021.

The ingredients list lists raisins as the first ingredients. Raisins? I don’t recall any raisins being in the original Plum Duff but 🤷🏼‍♀️

i LOVE this scent. It’s like a sexy but berryish and slightly sweet. Not citrussy, but fruity somewhat like The Comforter is fruity. Its got that same note that is in the Comforter shower gel that some people dont like. It’s a different scent than all the other Lush scent. At one time this was my FAVORITE. It was made in 1999.
😊it’s got tangerine and sandalwood in it as i recall.

like sexy sandalwood mixed with cotton candy or something.

But this Plum Duff shower gel isnt exactly like the original. But its still nice. Its a different scent for Lush Christmas shower gel, which i appreciate.

Here is the Plum Duff scent family

Igloo (Australian Igloo) scrub

3 out of 5 rating

Lush ‘Australian Igloo’ sugar scrub.

Up for the vote for the July 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

The Kitchen subscription box site calls it ‘Igloo’. No. This is incorrect. It’s not Igloo. ‘Igloo’ is the name of a lush soap, and it’s also the name of a solid bath oil.

Originally made as a limited edition in store and online for Christmas 2011.

This was never remade in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen.
Up for the vote for the July 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

It’s a pine scent. I wish it was a minty scent.

This doesn’t age well. It’s a nice soft consistency with large exfoliating pieces of sugar. It gets dry after a week or so and becomes hard and too scratchy to use on your skin.
