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?

Violet Cream bubble bars

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.

Queen of Hearts

4 out of 4 rating

Up for the vote for possible inclusion in the February 2021 Lush Kitchen subscription box


Ingredients:
 100g £2.40Rose Infusion (Rosa centifolia), Vegetable Soap, Glycerine, Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Perfume, Geranium Oil, Rose Absolute, Violet Leaf Absolute, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Cetearyl Alcohol (wax), Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

This is a lovely gentle soap for sensitive skin, older skin or even dry skin. The ingredients are about as close as a bouquet of roses as you can get. The real and fresh rose scent is very nice. Leaves my skin soft and non-irritated.

Summer 2000 Lush Times description: Queen of Hearts is a soft, creamy complexion soap which we make for all of you who should know better than to wash your face with soap but just won’t stop doing it. At least if you’ll use this one then you won’t be drying out your skin too badly because the glycerine, almond oil and cocoa butter we put in it (not to mention lashings of skin-friendly essential oils) will stop you stripping away all your face’s natural oils. We make it with roses so you smell lovely too.

Snow Apple

5 out of 5 rating.

See my Lush Christmas soaps video below.

This is a new soap for Christmas, and Lush made this soap in the popular ‘So White’ bath bomb scent. The scent is made with orange flower and smells just like a tart green apple! The fragrance actually makes my mouth water.

Its green with silver snow covering it, and it has a leaf on it just like a fresh picked apple. Its not conditioning. The scent is nice and strong and leaves a marvelous fresh scent of crisp apples on my skin.

One of my top favorites this Christmas!

Snow Apple

See my Christmas 2019 soaps video below for more in depth descriptions.

This wins my vote for prettirst looking Christmas soap this year (though Shooting Stars comes close).

Its a silver apple. Gorgeous! Who doesnt want to see this at the sink in thw soap dish.

Its made me in the Lush So White scent.

Lush used to have an all white Christmas bath bomb valled So White. It was a white apple.

The scent is made with orange flower, bergamot, neroli and rose.

Its a bright, crisp green apple scent. The scent is fairly strong.

Wonderful!

Sex Bomb shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

This is one of six exclusive shower gels that Lush.co.uk made ‘just because’ from community favorite bath bombs

Honestly, This is the shower gel i was the least excited about. Ive seen sex bomb in one form or another for 17 years. *yawn*

However, i was in for a surprise when i used this for the first time.

Firstly, it has this quite unexpected pink shimmer to it. SO pretty. The bath bomb that this shower gel was named after doesnt have any glitter nor shimmer so this was a pleasant surprise. its not glitter like in Intergalactic shower gel, this is *shimmer*, more subtle than glitter. Beautiful. I just keep gazing at it in the light.

Secondly, the scent isn’t as complex as rhe bsth bomb scent. That said-this is what i could call a classically ‘pretty’ scent. Its feminine and floral. Having rose, and jasmine florals. The herbaceousness of the sage is kind of missing, and the ylang ylang isnt coming across at all to me but….i dont care because this floral shower gel scent has great ‘throw’. Its not a sweet scent. Just floral.

And more importantly two hours after my shower im getting compliments about how i smell at the grocery store, and from my husband. He said it smells sexy.

I SEE you Sex Bomb shower gel! ❤️

North Polar Bear Left the Tap On

4 out of 5 rating

2018

This is a gorgeous new soap for Christmas made in the Lush ‘Sex Bomb’ scent. The scent is made with jasmine, rose, clary sage, synthetic musk. this soap adds lingonberry to the mix however.

I took some video footage of it at the creative showcase

Lush gas made many products with this same scent. I took a photo below of them all, except one is missing. Anyway this is a floral scent. If you like flowers and other floral scents you would like this NPBLTTO soap.

One thing that i like about it is that the sexy scent stays on the skin even after rinsing, drying off. Hours later i get a slight whiff of it’s sexy perfume.

Its not sweet, its smells mostly like rose and clary sage to my nose, but each persons nose can pick out different notes as primary.

The scent was made to be sexy, and that it is.

I like that we can choose yellow or green. The large soap inthe shops looks aaesome, i took a photo of the North Polar Bear soap at the Lush Creative Showcase.

The product missing from my scent family photos below is ‘Sex n the Shower’ emotibomb.

Lush Description: My Dear Children,

It has been such a long time since I last wrote to you, I hope you are all doing well. Things at the North Pole have been a bit hectic again. We have had a few fairly peaceful years but I should have known that wouldn’t last. You remember my dear friend North Polar Bear and the mischief he would get up to? Well, he has gone and done something silly again. I’m getting too old for these things now.

I was taking a bath, usually it is North Polar Bear who takes baths but even I like them sometimes, as it had been a very busy and tiring week and my bones creak a little now you see and I find that the hot water helps immensely. I was soaking happily (my favourite soap is made with jasmine absolute and ylang ylang oil as it makes me feel happy and even Father Christmas deserves some floral sometimes), when all of a sudden a roaring, rushing sound surrounded my house and the sky lit up like a bonfire! I leapt from the bath in a such a hurry that I splashed the lingonberry infused water all over the floor and dashed out of the bathroom, nearly forgetting my towel in my haste!

As I went outside, it looked like the sky had been set on fire with swirling colours of blue and green and yellow and red and I knew just what had happened. North Polar Bear had left the tap on for the Northern Lights and let two years out in one go! He says it was an accident but I think he just wanted to cause a bit of mischief for old times’ sake. It’s set to be another couple of dark Christmases for us here at the North Pole thanks to him, but the candlelight is quite charming and comfortable really so I don’t mind too much. I rather missed his antics.

I hope you are doing very well. Sending my love to you all.
Yours always, Father Nicholas Christmas

Perle De Sel

4 out of 4 rating see my 3 mi ute Tub Demo Video Below.

This years Snowcake product is a bath bomb called Perle De Sel. I was glad to see this replacement of the traditional Lush snowcake Christmas bomb ‘Lush Pud’. I quite like this all white version vs. the brown color of the previous years.

Perle De Sel has a lovely bit of gold nuggets in the outside middle of the bomb.

Snowcake is a very mild scent, having almond benzoin and rose together makes a light, comforting scent. It smells like a cross between snow and something yummy.

Lush has made many products throughout the years in this scent and this years product is a most elegant version in my opinion.

As it dissolves a lovely shade of aqua blue spews out of the bomb making the water shimmer with the addition of blue and silver sparkle.

Absolutely beautiful.

I would but another one but i wouldnt stock up on them.

Here’s a pic with my vintage Lush Snowcake perfume.

Holey Night

5 out of 5 rating.  Keep in Mind , I LOVE sandalwood.

See my two minute tub demo video below

5 out of 5 rating

I like the play on words.

The scent of this bath bomb surprised me. Its not citrus. Its got rose and sandalwood. It leaves a beautiful floral scent on my skin long after my bath is over after ive dried off.

I recorded this display full of Holey Night bombs at the Lush Creative Showcase event.

Holey night is made with soya milk powder which makes the water a creamier texture. Its quite softening on the skin.

I like the creamy pink and blue foam.

The end result is water with a turquoise hue and silver shimmer.

See my tub demo below

Oh holey night, the moon is brightly shining. This unidentified bath time object is a discovery you don’t want to miss, tune into balancing rose absolute and relaxing sandalwood oil for a journey into the unknown.

Pop into the bath and watch as the colours shift and change with your mood. It’s no hoax that softening soya milk powder lands on the skin with a brightening sunburst of Sicilian lemon oil. Venture to a galaxy far far away in an epic bathroom exploration.

Eyeball

I have two Eyeball bath bombs. see my recorded tub demo below

One i got from a Lush store. And one i got from Lush Uk mail order site lush.co.uk

Ive had the one i got from a Lush store in the uk on Sept 22 for two weeks. To me it didnt smell that exciting. In fact, it almost smelled sort of blah with maybe some lavender.

However, im SO glad i decided to order another one from mail order. Because THAT one was an entirely different story scent-wise.

Oh my GOD the gorgeousness of this pretty and yummy scent….this smells so familiar.

I looked it up on thesite to see look at the ingredients. As i read the ingredients on the site it dawned on me….this Eyeball bath bomb has the Lush SOFTY bath bomb scent!!!! YES. Thank you so much Lush.

The irony of this gorey eyeball having the pretty ‘Softy’ scent is wonderful. Lush also made a bubnle bar one Christmas called Hedgehog, with that same softy scent.

This scent is made with orange oil, lavender, ylang ylang and rose. Basically everything that is good-put together in one bomb.

Its both ‘pretty’ and ‘yummy’. I can smell the ylang ylang and the rose primarily, which is a GORGEOUS combination in itself. But then comes the wafting of the orange oil note to give it that ‘Lushious, sweet, fruit’ note. Then, comes the bright herbal pop of lavender to lift the whole combination up.

Heavenly. One must absolutely have a fresh one from mail order, otherwise youre in danger of getting a blah one, or God forbid, the even more rare one that smells like furniture cleaner, which i have had in the past as well.

A good, very fresh one is a 5 out of 5 rating.

An older one thats been sitting in the store for some days can be a 2 out of 5.

I pray you get a great one folks, its heavenly.

Here is a tub demo video i recorded for you.

These products below were made in the same blend.

Desert Date

5 out of 5 rating. See my demo video below.

Here’s a photo of mine with my devil duckie.

it smells similar to one of my favorite Lush products ever called ‘Fever’.

desert Date is made with jasmine, sandalwood and rose.

photo below courtesy of @Lushiezzz on Instagram

this is to exfoliate and moisturize in one bar. Much like lush ‘rub rub rub’ or ‘rough with the smooth’ bar, this is made with cocoa butter and illipe butter.

here’s a photo i took of mine below

The scent is a bold floral with a slightly Woody undertone. If you’re familiar with the Lush ‘Fever’ massage bar, ‘Fever’ perfume, or the ‘mirror mirror neck cream then you’ll recognize the sexy scent.

Purple Loosestrife

5 out of 5 rating. See my recorded sink demo below!

Here’s what the gold in the middle looks like

these new soaps are made in a different way. The designs are made via 3D laser cutting. Also, these soaps are made to stand up so they’re easier to hold and easier to stand up and be seen in the shower or bath.

They have more fragrance to stay on the skin after you’ve washed, and they’re full of luxurious skin moisturizing oils and butters.

Also, they have a bit of bicarb in them for a foamy effect.

Cardamom and Coffee

4 out of 5 rating

See my demo and review video below.

file-dec-04-6-31-37-pm

 

I adore cardamom.  I mean i really like it A LOT, so keep that in mind.

Cardamom and coffee has cardamom, which is a fragrant spice, some of you might recognize it’s lovely scent in Chai tea.

At first spray, it has a absolutely mind-blowing yumminess factor to it.
Also, this perfume has a lot of throw.

The rose oil in this is not a primary player here.  It adds a lovely but light floral note.  I don’t smell it and say “I smell rose”.

The coffee isn’t primary either.  Right now anyway the cardamom is the most primary, and i couldn’t be happier about that.

Unfortunately, at 30 minutes the scent diminished quite a lot.  It’s just a remnant of it’s former self.  This is the only reason i give this a 4 out of 5 rating. If the scent stayed as strong as when i first sprayed it, this would surely be a 5 out of 5 rating.
