Candy Mountain Yule Log

4 out of 5 rating

Yeah, this isnt Snow Fairy scented firstly. Just wanted to get that out of the way.

This is Creamy Candy scented. Lush makes a bubble bar year round called ‘Creamy Candy’ in stores. Well every Christmas Lush makes a christmas themed Creamy Candy bubble bar and calls it ‘Candy Mountain.

Historically its looked kind of like a unicorn horn shape.

This year however, Lush has re-designed their Christmas Candy Mountain. It looks quite different. It has more of a laser cut mountain design. I like it, its more refined than past years Candy Mountain.

The reason people confuse this with snow fairy is because the two scents creamy candy and snow fairy/candy fluff are similar, but yhey are different and made with different scent ingredients such as synthetic musk and vanilla in varying degrees. Snow Fairy/Candy Fluff adds clove bud leaf.

This Candy Mountain has extra skin conditioning ingredients in it, moreso than other Lush bubble bars.

I recorded a 1 minute tub demo of it for you below

Strawberry Santa

5 out of 5 rating

This wonderful holiday limited edition soap for 2018 has the scent of ‘Yummy yummy yummy’ shower gel and ‘Peeping Santa’ bubble bar.

This is one of those soaps that is almost too cute to use.

That cocoa butter cream in the middle looks delicous.

I was wondering how it’s shape would be condusive to washing. However it was just a matter of holding it in more of a cupping fashion.

The scent is surprisingly and pkeasantly strong. Thank goodness.

It really is a more moisturizing soap because of the conditioning cocoa butter in the soap.

Its made with fresh strawberries, geranium, and frankincense. This gives it a fruity, sweet, but equally floral and resinous scent.

The combination is addictive.

I have used every Lush Yummy yummy yumky scented product that Lush has made in the past and this soap does not dissappoint.

Its not as sweet as say the ‘snow fairy’ soap but almost. Its one of the sweetest soaps this holiday.

This is a soap that smells so good, works so well at moisturizing, is cute, that i would have to buy 3-5 of these.

Here is a review i recorded of this soap

Description: The weather outside may be frightful but Christmas showers have never been so delightful. What better way to finish off a great feast than with a creamy dessert, sandwiched between a cocktail of fresh strawberry juice and uplifting bergamot oil. Not to be mistaken for food, take this soapy little fellow and lather up under sweet suds of calming olibanum oil and conditioning peach kernel oil. Santa’s wearing a new suit this year, it’s strawberry sweet and totally unique. Hold him upright in your hand and massage into your palm to build up a lather that Father Christmas would be proud of.

Sugar Plum Fairy scrub

This is a 5 out of 5 product.

Its purple. Its cute. It smells like plums. It moisturizes my dry skin.

I am so enamored with this scrub. To put all your questions to rest. No. When i asked about the scent of the scrub the first time, someone thought i meant the lushlabs scrub i was holding in my other hand, so they told me plum rain, which it is. But THIS scrub here, which is what i was asking about, is NOT plum rain, its sugar plum scented. So that’s where all the confusion came. I apologize. I’ll change it everywhere that i have this erroneous info. 👍😘❤️

Typically i dont like the non-potted scrubs from Lush because they seem to dry out too quickly, making it eventually too scratchy to use on my skin.

Not so with this scrub. Its got seemingly double the regular amount of cocoa butter than others of its kind, making it a bit wetter.

This isn’t too big nor too small, it seems like just the right size to be able to use it up without it sitting around gettibg dry and scratchy.

Initially the dark color was worrisome but i didnt have to worry about any staining. There was none to be had.

Its got coarser exfoliating grains of sugar.

Here’s a close up demo video and review i recorded for you of the sctub on my arm at tge sink.

Perle De Sel

4 out of 4 rating

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

Ludh has made many products throughout the years in this scent and this years product is an elegant version in my opinion.

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

Absolutely beautiful.

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

Plum Pudding

5 out of 5 rating.

£5.75 (converted to $7.50)

Made with the Plum Rain scent.

This is possibly my favorite Christmas 2018 product.

Looking strikingly similar to Lush long time favorite ‘Ceridwen’s Cauldron’s bath oil, wrapped in a piece of purple muslin, the bath oil itself is also a deep purple color.

There are multiple little bits of goodies embedded in the top of Plum Pudding.

It makes it look quite like a real plum pudding.

That changes when it hits the water, and the irridescent showstopping purple glitter comes out.

It has the wonderful fruity aroma of plums and, oranges.

Im so glad that Lush decided to make a BIG bath oil, like the size they used to make. While the current lush bath oils are a perfect little gem sized piece, theres something to be said about having a big chunk of purple glittery goodness to rub all over oneself.

This makes my skin feel good. And its gorgeous. I cant resist purple glitter.

Im going to stock up and buy three to five of these beauties.

When you get back from late night shopping and you’re plum out of energy, get in the bath with this skin softening melt. The proof is in the pudding and with ingredients to soften and soothe you’re in for more than just a sweet treat! Watch your winter woes melt away with whole oats and almond oil to hydrate and calm. The best puddings this Christmas are made with Fair Trade organic cocoa butter to moisturise and protect your skin. Lay back and relax with calming osmanthus absolute and petitgrain oil. It’ll be a date to remember.

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.

Under the Umbrella Tree

I would rate this bath bomb a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a cute bath bomb.   I love the tree shape of it.

This was made with the Lush “Breath of God’ fragrance.

The fragrance is a combination of two Lush scents “Inhale’ and ‘Exhale’.

There are masculine notes such as cedar wood, sandalwood,, and feminine notes such as rose. Together they form the classic Breath of God fragrance, which Lush has sold since 2008. Men would like it but women would like it too It’s both earthy and airy in the same fragrance.

Lush has made a bath bomb In the past called “Inhale Exhale‘ with a similar fragrance.

The bath bomb is a fast fizzes and makes a beautiful, not often seen, lime green water.  So uplifting and hopeful, like Spring.
