Summer Blues bath bomb (omg)!😱 so rare

Granny Takes A Dip bath bomb

Karma shower jelly

The Godmother soap

Avocado No Wash body lotion

Grass solid shampoo

I’ve used all of these before and Here’s what i voted for

Hmm on Seot 30 2021 i saw this from one of the Lush product creators. I wonder if they’re talking about a candle?

Karma shower jelly

Never made for the public, this has only originally been made in 2006 for uk forum members, and made in the Lush Kitchen a couple of times in 2014 and 2016. Its up for the vote for the September 2021 Lush subscription box.

5 out of 5 rating

If you like the Karma scent this jelly will make you happy.
Its strong with the classic orange oil, patchouli, lemon grass, and pine scent of Karma.

Its a red orange color with no sparkles.
I usually cut some up, put it in a small plastic kitchen seive and hold it under the falling water and it makes tons of karma scented bubbles in the tub.

I added a Karma scent famy (which is one of the biggest scent families) on the last photo, and there are four more newer products missing from the photo already!

The Godmother

4 out of 5 rating

As in Fairy Godmother 😊This was originally made in 2008 and discontinued around 2011 i think.
Its up for the vote for the September 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.
The previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen remade this in 2015.

Its made with the sweet and spicy scent of Candy Fluff/Melting Marshmallow Moments.

Lush 2008 description:,Despite our Ballistics, skincare, haircare and all other wonderful things for our baths showers and bodies, people tend to call Lush “That soap shop”. This is fair, because we do make exceedingly good soaps. We looked into this (technically Pia looked into it and we were all very interested) and found that 68% of people in the UK wash their hands with washing up liquid. Thats just not right. Its not good for your hands. Stop it! Mo, our soap supreme, has made this special soap (scented with our best selling Candy Fluff scent) for keeping by the kitchen sink. Think of it as your fairy godmother for the hands.

Ingredients Water (Aqua) , Palm Free Soap Base, Propylene Glycol , Sodium Coco-Sulfate , Sodium Stearate , Perfume , Synthetic Musk , Glycerine

I like the scent of this soap. The first thing I did was to get the package and before I opened it I could smell the Candy Fluff scent that I love. It’s a fruity, pink, with purole sparkkes and a sweet pink, effervescent smelling fragrance. If you like the Candy Fluff powder, or Marshmellow Melting Moments bath melt you will love this soap.

It’s such a gorgeous color of dark rose pink. The Godmother is not exceptionally drying to my hands nor is it moisturizing , but somewhere in the middle.
I was surprised at how low lathering this soap was. The scent stays on my hands for a goodly while. I did notice that the Godmother lather was minimwl. The Godmother didn’t leave my hands dry.

This was the whole huge truckke of soap in the stores that tgey woukd cut pieces off of for selling.

Summer Blue

4 out of 5

A beautiful, fresh floral scent.

This is up for the vote for the September 2021 subscription box. 🤞🏽

This is rare. Lush has never remade this since it was originally sold in 2004. Not even in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen. I pray this gets enough votes. 🙏🏼


This is (was) a lovely powdery, Summer floral bath bomb available in the UK and in some NA gifts. Lots of pretty, tiny blue flower petals in this one. Summer Blues also turns the water a pale blue.

Lush used to make a liquid bath oil called Dreaming of Summer and this was the precursor to Summer Blues bomb. I love having them together but if you don’t like bits in your bath (and on your skin if you use the bath oil with it.) then you can simply put the bomb in a pop sock or a kitchen seive, as just the smell and water color is worth it. Here is a picture of the Dreaming of Summer bath oil.

Summer Blues’ fresh scent lasts on the skin longer than most Lush scents too. It’s a similar fresh, spring air scent that is in Lush’s “Oxeo Cube” deo and “Tiptoe Thru The Tulips” soap. I don’t usually combine these with anything.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Blue Mallow Flowers, Larkspur Flowers, Cornflower Petals, Rose Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus dulcis), Lemongrass Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Colour 42045.

Lush Times Summer 2004 description: Drop this in the bath and you’ll get a blue pond full of three kinds of blue flower petals, scented with soothing rose, calming and reviving orange blossom, relaxing jasmine and lemongrass to lift your spirits. It’s like buying a ticket and hopping on the magic bus to a warm, summer garden. Float in a warm bath of flowers and you’ll discover that the Summer Blues Bath Ballistic is one of the fastest ways to rid yourself of winter miseries.

Sleepy Bear

Having the Lush Sleepy/Twilight scent

Tiny purple Lavender petals which Lush has coated in purple bath oil. I love when Lush is innovative.

I’m going to use it in the next couple of days and will record a Tub Demo Video of this Sleepy Bear so we can see what it does in the tub and what color it makes.

Plum Duff shower gel

4 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

Plum Duff, Sugar Plum, Plum Duff letters, It’s a Date

Here is my demo and review video

Jolly

4 out of 5 rating

Unfortunately for my extensively dry skin It’s not the most moisturizing shower gel. that’s the only reason it’s a 4 and not a 5.

See my Jolly Demo/Description/Rating Video below

This is a different scent for a Lush shower gel. It has Orange, cinnamon, clove. I thought that because of the ingredients that this has it would smell like Lush ‘Hot Toddy’, Lush ‘Glögg’ or even Lush ‘Taai Taai’ shower gel. Its not like Lush ‘Ponche’ shower gel either.

It doesn’t smell like any of those. Nor does it smell like any of the Lush orangey shower gels. I mean..it does smell orangey but not *just* orangey.

in the video below i squeeze the gel onto a plate and tilt the plate so you can see how slow it falls

It has a light spice to it. Its refreshing but has a little something to it. Its more of a full bodied scent than most citrus orange scents.

I like it a lot. Its festive and well, Jolly! 😊

Oh, and there is no glitter in this shower gel.

I would definitely suggest this shower gel.

I had this wonderful shower gel that i wrote about here called ‘Taai Taai’ i bought it from a UK lushie in 2006. Lush made it for their Dutch Lushies. The ingredients sounded a bit similar. But nope, not at all similar.

Description: This is a special shower gel made especially for the Dutch Lushies. It’s based on the Sinterklas celebration. It was also available in the Leeds shop in England as a special for their party.

Jolly is one of three new Christmas 2021 Lush shower gels

My Demo Video

Jilted Elf body spray

This is such a very different scent. I love the Jilted Elf shower jelly. It’s like a cacophony of notes but somehow they work together!figs, ginger, cinnamon, grapefruit, vodka and honey. it’s both fruity and spicy. i’ll be buying the christmas body spray.

Ingredients:Glycerine,Fig Infusion,Sodium Laureth Sulfate,Propylene Glycol,Carrageenan Extract,Honey,Cinnamon Leaf Oil,Grapefruit Oil,Ginger Oil,Vodka,Perfume,*Eugenol,*Limonene,*Linalool,Methyl Ionone,Coumarin,Colour 45350,Colour 42090,Methylparaben,Propylparaben,Glamour Gold Glitter

Lush Pumpkin Spice Soap

This is a new item for Halloween 2021

Lush Pumpkin Spice soap.
This soap was actually an exclusive in the October 2020 Lush Kitchen Subscription box last year. Im glad they made it for anyone to buy this year.

It smells just like pumpkin pie. Its the same as the Lush ‘Pumpkin Spice’ lip scrub from Lush Halloween 2020.

It’s beautifully moisturizing. It feels and smells scrumptious. I would suggest it and i would rate this a 5 out of 5 rating.

Ingredients: Sunflower Oil; Coconut Oil, Fresh Organic Orange Juice, Pumpkin puree, Lime Oil, Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Eugenol, *Limonene, Gardenia Extract

My slice from the October 2020 Subscription box
Lush Kitchen October 2020 Subscription box

Here’s a pic of a Lush Pumpkin soap from 2008 that i bought for Halloween..

The Sicilian

Lush ‘The Sicilian’ bath bomb.
Made in the early 2000’s. Discontinued about four years later.

this is one of five products here that are up for the vote for the August 2021 Lush subscription box.

This bath bomb was always a staple for me, and probably becuase my favorite smell is the smell of fresh peeled oranges.

Its a fast fizzing bomb not a slow melting creamy one. no bath art. no glitter.

This is made with four different orange ingredients: Mandarin, Orange, Neroli, and Tangerine.
It also has marigold flower petals mixed in and an orange slice.

The reference comes from the book/movie ‘The Godfather’ which is about a mafia boss from Sicily (and one of my favorite movies). In it the director has something about oranges in every killing scene. 😊

Lush made asoap called Sunny Citrus which is in the same scent.

Lush 2005 Description: Why Sicilian? Well, we named it thus because of the organic Sicilian oranges we slice up and put inside each one and because its sunny colour and refreshing citrus scent remind us of the fruit trees in Sicily’s fertile valleys. We pack it with refreshing, uplifting orange, tangerine and mandarin oils to make us feel almost as good as if we were tootling around on a Vespa with the warm wind messing up our hairdo.

LT 2004: The Sicilian is a bath for brightening up dull days;even sunny days can appear dull when there’s nothing exciting to look forward to. If you know your’re going to spend all day in meetings, or in a room with no daylight or haivng tea with yoru dullest relative thake a Sicilian bath first. The reviving essential oils, made from Sicilian oranges, mandarins, tangerines and orange flowers will cheer you up so much you might actually find you enjoy yourself! Share citrus Sicilians with your co-workers and relatives and all your days will be summer.

Ginger body lotion

Lush ‘Ginger’ body lotion.

Ginger perfume is one of those products that lush started selling when they were called ‘Cosmetics To Go’ in the 90’s. It was VERY popular.

This is a pic of mine in the white pot, but now they’re in black pots.

Up for the vote for the August 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.
Its made with rose, jasmine, ginger root. It’s a VERY floral scent. And a bitter floral, not a sweet scent.

There are around 12 Lush products that i have had over the years which were made in this same Ginger scent.

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with this scent. I used to like it a lot. But now i don’t. I love rose, i love jasmine and i love ginger root, so i’m not sure why i don’t like it. It’s VERY strong.

Do y’all like this scent? Or not so much?

White Noise

See my tub demo video below.

Lush has collaborated with ASOS to make an exclusive bath bomb.

This bath bomb was included as an exclusive in the June 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.

It’s a frenetic pattern of blue, green, gray and white.

The scent is highly citrussy. Its the same scent as the Lush ‘Kitsume’ bath bomb.

It’s not sweet at all. It kind of reminds me of the Avobath bomb with its lemongrass scent, but this White Noise bomb is even more citrussy than that.

This isn’t one of those slow dissolving, melty bath bombs with multi colored foamy bath art. This is one of those fast fizzing bath bombs.

It’s got lots of nice gray silver glitter that dissolves into the water.

The end color is a gray blue bath water with gray silver glitter.

I enjoyed it. It’s different in action, looks and scent. While it’s not my favorite scent it’s nice.

i’d rate this a 3 or 4 out of 5 rating.
