Monster Octopus jelly

See my 4 minute Description and Demo video Below

5 out of 5 rating

What a cute idea!

The wiggly nature of the jelly makes a great octopus 😄

Firstly, i was pleasantly surprised that this smells so good.

I figured it would be a scent already seen in a jelly. But its a great scent of passion fruit, black currant, vanilla and orange.

It smells like a fruit candy, but not in a fake candyish way. Its a natural sweet, fruity fragrance.

This afternoon I was told by Alessandro the Creator of this Lush Monster Octopus jelly that it’s “Not the scent of Very Very Frightening shower gel, It’s a new fragrance. Similar to the old passion fruit lip balm, but it’s actually new.”

I love the color! Red and purple are my favorite colors. Its got No glitter for anyone who is curious.

Ive discovered that the Octopus tentacles make it easier to hold on to when using it.

You can use it at room temperature, cooled in the fridge on hot days, or even frozen.

Ive used the other Lush jellies by slicing into small pieces and putting about a tablespoon in a plastic kitchen seive and hold the seive under the stream of water coming out of the faucet. And down below at water level it stsrts to make a light foam.

But with this here Monster Octopus jelly I just held the whole dang thing in the faucet stream. 😄 And it worked nicely. Its also easier to hold the whole thing in the shower too to wash with it like a bar of soap.

Ingredients

Glycerine, Fresh Passion Fruit Infusion, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Carrageenan Extract, Perfume, Vanilla Absolute, Blackcurrant Absolute, Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Tagetes Oil, Water (Aqua), Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, *Benzyl Alcohol, *Citral, *Limonene, Colour 14700, Colour 17200

Lush Description:

This tentacled passion fruit scented jelly is not only fruity, bubbly and great fun to wash with but will dance with you too! Tango together in the tub and watch it wiggle, slide and jive as you wash.

How to use:
Wibble and wobble the whole jelly over your body and hair for a skin-softening wash. Bonus tip: Slide the jelly across the tub to watch the octopus dance.

The Lakes

4 out of 5 rating

This is a new exclusive bath bomb made for the August 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.

Lush New Exclusive bath bomb ‘The Lakes’.
Inspired by Taylor Swift.


This has a brand new scent. It’s an earthy, incensed, green scent made with osmanthus, oak moss, myrrh, and siberian fir needle.


It’s a slow, melty foamy bomb. It’s a mint green with flecks of pink in it and fine silver shimmer in it.

The scent stays on my skin long after i dry off and get dressed. It’s a subtlety earthy, sensual scent.

I like this bomb. It’s a different color for Lush and a different scent. It’s not a sweet scent but an earthy green one. Kind of like the classic lush green scents.


Here’s a link to my tub demo 😊

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

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

Alien bubble bar

4 out of 5 rating

Alien bubble bar. Made for the first time for Winter Holiday 2021.

The thing about the Alien bubble bar is that you have to use it before it starts fading in color. This is because the color of the water won’t be this lovely bright green color, instead it will be a dark yellow color.

Do you see the difference between this bar and the one above?

If the green color fades a bit the color of the water is going to be this:

i know some of you have told me you don’t like yellow or brown water so i thought i’d let y’all know.

When the bar hasnt faded the water is more green

the scent is so nice! it’s a citrus scent with a green note.

Prepare to be transported to another world with mountains of uplifting and zesty bubbles. New dimensions await as neon waters refresh and revive with uplifting bergamot and litsea cubeba.

How to use: 
Crumble a little or the whole thing under running water for juicy, fruity neon water and out of this world bubbles.

How to store:
Keep cool and dry until ready for UFO sightings and extra-terrestrial bathing.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Cornstarch, Bergamot Oil, Litsea Cubeba Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Glycerine, Water (Aqua), Tragacanth Gum, DRF Alcohol, *Citral, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 47005, Colour 77499, Colour 59040, Colour 42090

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

I’m not positive but i think they do this because In Australia it is Christmas in July. 😊 And the Lush Australia factory makes Christmas products on to sell on their retail website.

Gold, Frankincense and Beer shower and bath jelly

North Pole soap

Abombinaball bath bomb

Yog Nog lotion

Australian igloo

Ponche shower gel

Here is my unboxing with the products that were made from the votes they got.

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.

Diamond Dust

5 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute Tub Demo/Review Video below

Diamond Dust

This is a new creation by Jack Constantine. It was made exclusively for the Lush Kitchen May 2021 Subscription Box.

It’s a slow melty kind of fizzer.

It has ‘peachy’ notes, strawberry notes, and even notes from the Lush ‘cocktail’ scent. So it’s a yummy fruity floral scent.

It’s pink and yellow with smatterings of purple. It’s got a diamond pattern on the surface of the bomb. It’s infused with diamond dust-fine, biodegradable gold glitter.

it makes the water an opaque, silky, creamy, peach colored water.

Bunny Bubble

4 out of 5 rating

Made primarily with vanilla. it’s white on the outside and pink on the inside.

it’s got tiny blue (real) flower petals which float around in the water when the tub is full.

This was originally made for Easter in 2015. It was remade in the Lush Kitchen in 2017. Also, This was voted on to have in the April 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box

This bunny has a white bubble bar covering a beautiful pink bubble bar inside.

It has the Creamy Candy bubble bar scent.

I LOVE this. I love the shock of pink underneath all that white coating. And i love the Creamy Candy scent. Much more than the Snow Fairy scent or the Candy Fluff scent.

Here’s a group of Easter things for 2015 and you can see Bunny Bubble on the left.

Bunny bubble in the left of the pic
It makes a light/medium pink colored water with lots of white creamy bubbles and tiny blue, pink and yellow flower petals.

It’s up for the vote again for the Lush Kitchen subscription box.

Jasmine Cream

4 out of 5 rating

see my tub demo vid below

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.

Violet Cream

5 out of 5 rating See my Relaxing 4 minute Tub Demo below

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.

Winter Garden bath bomb

4 out of 5 rating

see my tub demo video below

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.

Youki Hi

2 out of 5 rating

up for the vote for possible inclusion in the Lush Feb 2021 subscription box.


Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Sea Salt (Sodium Chloride), Perfume, Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Cypress Oil (Cupressus sempervirens), Palmarossa Oil (Cymbopogan martini), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Red Golden Glitter (Polyethylene terephthalate, FD&C Yellow No. 5, D&C Red No. 7, FD&C Red No. 4), FD&C Red No. 4

This has scent of Flying Fox shower gel. Lots of honeysuckle, ylang ylang and not too noticeable jasmine. It’s similar to the Lush ‘Lust’ perfume. I don’t like the scent whatsoever , *raises right hand* I cannot finish a bath with this. I’ve tried it twice just to make sure. I usually try things at least three times, but no can do. It’s apity because visually, it’s strikingly gorgeous. The Youki Hi from the UK especially, are covered (on the outside only) with a bunch of golden glitter, and dark red salt. I don’t like Flying Fox shower gel either, and this ballistic was made to have the same exact scent as flying Fox shower gel.

These are the little flower buds in it.
This is the color of the water.

LT description: Our Chinese New Year celebration Ballistic is named after one of the world’s three most beautiful women ever, a Chinese woman called Youki-Hi, according to Japanese tradition. It as Yuka’s idea; she works for Lush in Japan. It has the gloriously sensual, jasmine flower fragrance of Flying Fox and is regally decorated with gold sparkles and red sea salt – that’s sea salt dyed red not salt from the Red Sea in the colours of Chinese dragons which dance along the street for new year parades. The other two most beautiful women, so legend has it, were Cleopatra and Onono Komachi, a Japanese storyteller. Perhaps one day they will have their own commemorative Bath Ballistics too. (It’s pronounced ‘you-key-hee’ not ‘you-key-high’ except by Mark.)

Yog Nog body milk

5 out of 5 rating

I’ve tried two other exclusive Lush body milks and have recorded up close demos of the body milks below, so you can see how these body milks are.

When i buy my Christmas products and they’re delivered- i’ll write my reviews, post my tub bath water photos and video demo here for you. 😊

I’ve bought and used the exclusive Lush Yog Nog body lotion (in my group photo below) and it was too much for me. Too greasy. So i was wary about this yog nog body milk. But this sinks in so much better. And it leaves you feel moisturized but not greasy. And it smells delicious!

I took a photo of all the Lush Yog Nog products made throughout the years. If you’ve had one of these you know how this body milk will smell like.

heres a video of me showing up close a couple of Lush body milks.

Keep It Fluffy Bubble Bottle

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

There’s a different look to the Valentines 2021 version. The former version was sold as an exclusive on the sum site 9 months ago.

The Keep It Fluffy perfume is literally my favorite Lush perfume ever!

Lush used to have a sister company called B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful. They made bath and beauty products that were a little bit more upscale than Lush. One of line of bath products was called ‘1000 Kisses Deep’ taken from the lyrics of a song. Ludh made perfume, soap, incense, liquid bath oil, bath salts, bubble bath, lotion etc.

Here’s a pic i took of some Keep It Fluffy products that i bought from Lush’s boutique called B Never Too Bust To Be Beautiful. Notice that the crystal spray bottle of perfume on the left is the same shape of the Valentines bubble bar.

Keep It Fluffy Bubble Bottle
