Temptation soap

LUSH Times, Spring 2004 description: Temptation smells like a superior sort of apple pie, fresh from the oven, spiced with a sprinkling of cinnamon and scented with a hint of orange blossom for a ‘nouvelle cuisine’ approach. Like the best sort of apple pie, we put fresh, organic apples into our Temptation soap and add a drop of uplifting myrrh essential oil. Despite its name there’s nothing sinful about it, except that it’s a bit more expensive than most of our soaps, but if we will go putting fresh apples and phenomenally expensive myrrh in it, what do you expect?

Lush Times 2003 description: Temptation is our apple pie soap made with fresh, organic apple juice and spicy cinnamon leaf oil. Apples contain organic acids which are good for stimulating sedentary people. Picture this, .Adam, get up off your backside and come over here.. .No, can’t be bothered.. .Here, have an apple then.. Temptation soap smells sharp, refreshing and spicy. Just wave it under someone.s nose when you want to tempt them into the shower with you.

Apples and cinnamon. Reminds me of Autumn and good apple cider. The big slab of temptation soap had slices of apples all over the top incase you get a piece with what looks like leaves…. It is! I don’t know why this was ever disconinued because it seemed to be such a popular soap. Everyone used to post how much they loved it. I guess they had to make room for new stuff is all I can think of. I loved this soap! It smells like a real red apple. The soap had a bit more cinnamon scent than the shower gel, otherwise they smell similar.

Kim the Carrot

I apologize. I just could not place this scent correctly initially.

You know what really messed with my head? Well, for Easter holidays past Lush has made carrot looking bubble bars. And so when i first smelled this Kim the Carrot on my Valentine’s 2022 Haul video I. DiD. NOT. LIKE. IT.

I expected a natural carrot scent. All the irange carrot shaped bars had carrot juice in them. For years.

Even though its not an Easter product i still expected that scent. And when i smelled the Creamy Candy scent instead-it messed me up 😅 It smelled famisr to me but i couldnt out my fimger on what it was iwas smelling. At the time i couldnt even tell what scent it was. Creamy Candy. It’s CREAMY CANDY 😂

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

ETA: This is not a new vanilla scent. This is the Lush

Creamy Candy scent.

After i buy one I’ll add more info pics and video when i take a bath with it tomorrow.

Here’s a video i recorded for you of my bath with Kim the Carrot and you can see what it looks like when using it.

Mr. Loba Loba

See my Tub Demo Below 😊

The ones i got from Lush Uk were more pink and the one i got from Lush usa is more red.

This is a New, limited edition bath bomb for Valentine’s 2022. Its made in the shape of a Lobster, and is made in the same scent as ‘Pink Fun’ bar. Tonka and Benzoin.

It has a soft floral scent with a bit of yumminess.

with the Lush Pink Fun bar scent.

I love the reddish pink color. Lush doesn’t have many products with this color. I love it!

This is not a fast fizzing bath bomb, it’s one of those slow, melty kind of bath bombs . I love the ones like this, and this one is extra ‘fluffy’ in the water.

Lush 2022 Description: We’re obsessed with the idea that lobsters mate for life, which is how this limited-edition lobster came to be! You’ll want to spend a lifetime with this one’s benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute, and almond oil blend that creates a sweet and cozy scent. And just like true love, it fizzes slow, giving you time to fall head over heels for its red-and-pink foam that’s packed with sodium alginate to give your water a soothing, gel-like feel.Proudly packaging-free.Benefits.,

  • Almond essential oil is soothing
  • Tonka absolute offers a decadent note
  • Sodium alginate makes water feel gel-like

I like the fun lobster shape, i love the uncommon color, and i like the scent.

I would rate this a 5 out of 5.

How to use: 
Run your bath and release into the water. You’re my lobster! Fizz away with the boombastic, romantic, fantastic scent of sweet benzoin and tonka.

How to store: 
Keep cool and dry before you are ready to partner for life (or the duration of your bath).

Love Bug

See the Tub Demo video i made for you below.

This is a new bath bomb for Lush. It’s a limited edition bath bomb just for Valentine’s 2022.

Take this uplifting fizzer for a spin around the tub as it unleashes skin-softening, colorful waters and a sweet, citrusy scent.

Lush description: Inspired by Herbie the Love Bug, this sweet ‘n’ citrusy fizzer is the perfect companion for bathtime. Sicilian lemon and organic sweet orange oils collide with rose oil to give this one a citrusy scent kissed with a hint of sweetness. We’ve also packed it full of cream of tartar and corn starch to help kick the softness up a notch for a seriously silky feel.

Benefits

  • Corn starch helps soften water and skin
  • Citrus oils deliver an uplifting hit
  • Rose oil keeps things calm and soothed

This is a New Valentines bath bomb for 2022. It’s a cute little vw bug car. It has the same scent as the classic Lush Valentines ‘Love Boat’ bath bomb from previous years, as well as the Rose Lollipop lip balm. This Love Bug even has the same colors as the Love Boat.

How to use: 
Ready – run your bath. 
Set – add your Love Bug. 
GO! 
Sink into the tangy sherbet scent of orange and Sicilian lemon. For a Valentine’s Day bath that will get your heart racing.

This bath bomb makes great bath art. Pink, Blue and Yellow are so pretty. The bath water starts out with multi-colored bath foam and then turns into a beautiful rose color.

The rose colored water has silver shimmer in it.

I’d rate this bath bomb a 5 out of 5 rating 😊

It’s a slightly sweet, fruity scent made with rose, lemon and orange.

Lush Valentine’s Day 2022

Heres my video

I received my online purchase ! I’ll start taking baths, and ill use love bug, Lucky Tiger and Mr Loba Loba and record demos and review and add to this blog.

There are time stamps for each product in the description area of the youtube video above.

Valentines 2022 products will be up on the uk and usa sites January 6.

This year we have one returning Valentines product, and seven New Valentine’s products.

I’ll post any Lush Valentines exclusive products from Lush Liverpool Spa and from the Oxford Street store here too if they have some this year.

We have three new scents this year, and five products that share their fragrance with other Lush products.

Aubergine bath bomb / Big Eggplant Returning but much bigger! Still with the 29 High Street fragrance.

Big Eggplant ill be reviewing this one soon.

Hot Lips – New this year It’s a lip mask like they use in Korean Beauty. It’s got a New cherryish scent.

I can resist everything except temptation shower gel. New this year. Made with the ‘Apple Crumble’ bubble bar scent made with Cinnamon and

Kim the Carrot bubble bar – New this year. It’s got a new vanilla scent.

Love Bug bath bomb – New this year. Fruity. Has the Love Boat bath bomb scent.

Mr Loba Loba bath bomb – A Lobster shape. Pink Fun bar scent

Rose soap – New this year. Shares its scent with ‘Softy’ bath bomb

Strawberry Heart jelly – New this year. Made with a new strawberry scent.

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.

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.

Tub Demo Video

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.

Demo Video

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.

Demo Video

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.

Unicorn Poop

5 out of 5 rating

Lush will be releasing this in November along with four other bath bombs. Ive used three or four of them so far. As i get more info on the two i havent used yet ill post it on this page.

These pics are from Lush Japan .

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

Ingredients

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 bathtub faucet. And down below at water level in the tub it starts to make a light foam.

But with this here Monster Octopus jelly I just held the whole dang thing in the bath 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.

Lush photo

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

Here is my demo and review video

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

My slice from the October 2020 Subscription box

Lush Kitchen July 2021 Subscription Box

see my video below of the winning products

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 the scent of the Lush ‘Inhale’ fragrance.

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.
