Roasting Chestnuts On An Open Fire

This is a new Lush limited edition product.

This was made in the same yummy scent as Lush ‘Christmas Cake’ soap from long ago.

As soon as i receive the Christmas order that i buy from the website i’ll review this, show it up close and wash with it at the sink. i’ll post more photos and my video of it here.

Very Very Frightening

4 out of 5 rating

The name comes from the song by Queen called ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

The scent is a cross between citrussy (grapefruit) and berry-like (Black Currant).

Ingredients: Perfume, Grapefruit Oil, Bergamot Oil, Almond Essential Oil, Black Currant, White Sugar Crystals, Titanium Dioxide, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Silica, *Limonene, *Linalool,

This has the same scent as the three below Lush products: Space Girl bath bomb, Goth Fairy Sparkly massage bar, Stargazer bubble bar.

This Halloween shower gel is made with the Lush ‘Space Girl’ bath bomb scent. It’s fruity. Like a cross between citrus fruits and berryish fruits.

My 19 year old daughter thinks it smells like ‘Skittles’ candy. 😊

It’s a thin consistency but i can let that slide since it’s such a fun shower gel. 👍🏼

You’ll love this if you like:

– Zingy sherbet citrus scents with a warm hint of almond.

– The Comforter bath bomb, Plum Rain shower gel or Argan Dragon shower oil.

Benefits:

– Grapefruit oil adds a fresh and fruity hit of uplifting fragrance, sure to boost your mood into the cosmos.

– A member of the citrus family, bergamot oil adds a cheery ray of sunshine to invigorate and enliven your bathing experience.

– Almond essential oil gives a touch of warm, sweet comfort.

Slammer

3.5 out of 5 rating

lemon Peel Decoction (Citrus limetta), Fresh Scottish Sea Water, Fresh Lime Juice, Honey (Mel), Lime Oil, Rock Salt, Litsea Cubeba Oil, Lemon Oil, Perfume.

Review: I think the lemon in this smells too strong to me. I like Back for Breakfast shower gel more. Slammer is the best for waking up it’s said. Lush made this shower gel to be the same as their once loved “Slammer” ballistic. It’s a popular shower gel , some say the Slammer scent smells like a margarita. The guys would like this Slammer gel too as it’s a neutral scent. It’s got just the right amount of sweetness. Smells kind of like lime and lemon punch.

Lush 2005 Description: If Back For Breakfast is too soft for you then Slammer will be your shower gel of choice. It metamorphosed not long back from a Bath Ballistic to a shower gel because the kind of people likely to need a Slammer alarm call do not always have time for a bath in the morning. (Although it does a very good job as a bubble bath for those too tired to stand up.) You may notice, those of you who like the odd tequila cocktail, that our Slammer, with its fresh lime juice and rock salt, bears a certain resemblance to another sort of slammer. Those of you who are partial to the other sort of slammer in the evening will probably need a bottle of ours to get you through the morning.

Vegan 8.4oz

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Fresh Spring Water (Aqua), Fresh Scottish Sea Water (Aqua), Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Aloe Vera Gel (Aloe barbadensis), Sea Salt (Sodium chloride), Perfume, Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Bergamot Oil (Citrus bergamia), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Colour 42045, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

:lol:

Review: Woo! That’s the way it feels. Powerfully minty with a teeny weeny bit of citrus. Its kind of a sweet mint, more sweet than ‘Dirty’ not as herbally as ‘Dirty’. It’s fabulous in the morning or when it’s hot and muggy outside. Oh and ladies, don’t get this near your va jay jay, it can be kind of uncomfortable for sensitive areas.

Lush 2005 Description: Peppermint has this amazing quality of making your feel cool when you’re hot and warm when you’re cold. When you’re in a warm shower and you put a dollop of Freeze Shower Gel on your body it gives you a refreshing, tingly feeling all over. Peppermint has been used for thousands of years to help the skin stay soft and the mind stay focused. One view is that it was named ‘mente’ meaning thought because it is said to help concentration and inspiration. If you lack either of these, try making Freeze your morning shower gel and shampoo of choice.

Supertramp shower gel

4 out of 5 rating.

This shower gel.is exclusive to the Lush Uk Kitchen subscription box.

Its actually made by combining two existing

Lush products: ‘Tramp’ and ‘Smaragadine’.

Tramp is a old lush favorite shower gel that smelled very earthy like a fairy glade. Its main scent notes were patchouli and oakmoss.

Smaragadine was an even older product that was a liquid bubble bath made with mint, lavender, rose petal, sandalwood, oranfe peel, chamomile, petitgrain and ginger.

Ingredients: White Horehound and Peppermint Leaf Infusion, Balm Herb, Rose Petal and Lavender Flower Infusion, Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Fine Sea Salt, Organic Orange Peel Decoction, Patchouli Oil, Petitgrain Oil, Pimento Berry Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Ginger Oil, Plantain Vinegar Gel, Perfume, Methyl Ionone, Eugenol, *Limonene, Linalool, Chlorophyllin, Methylparaben. * Occurs naturally in essential oils

Review: Thick, green and mossy. Doubles as a bubble bath. Very burnt-patchouli/clove scented; if you like the Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bar, you’ll probably like Supertramp. Scent lingers on the skin for hours after showering. I like it, but not quite as much as Grass.

Lush Kitchen description: An earthy, mystical shower gel that smells like wandering through tall dark pine trees in an enchanted forest over a cool soft carpet of moss. With horehound to cleanse the skin, peppermint to add a warming, fresh top note and the sensual, floral scents of lavender and rose.

So Supertramp has all of these notes. Its a multi layered spa type of scent.

The Supertramp shower gel is a dark green,

thick gel that is calming and soothing.

I woukd say that its one of the best green, earthy shower gels that Lush has made, with the exception of Tramp.

Its a unisex scent that would be liked by both men and women.

The Supertramp in this Lush Kitchen Subscription box is the regular 250g Medium size.

I would recommend and would buy another one if i had the chance.

Heres a video i recorded of the Supertramp shower gel https://youtu.be/3KzOaX_lBlw

Almond Blossom shower gel

3 or 3 1/2 out of 5 rating

See my review and description video below.

Lush introduced Almond Blossom into their regular line on Jan 23, 2020. Its made in a new sulphate free formula.

Its made in the same scent as the Christmas 2019 body lotion ‘Snowflake’. Its primary ingredient is almond essential oil.

I don’t like this Almond Blossom shower gel as much as i love the Snowflake lotion. The shower gel smells much weaker to me, and isn’t sweet at all. Most people are telling me that their Almond Blossom shower gel is so sweet and strong it makes them sick. I guess mine is so fifferent due to the handmade nature of Lush products.

“The delicate blossoms of spring have been reimagined as a softening shower gel enriched with almond milk and the scent of sweet marzipan. A triple dose of almond comes courtesy of Fair Trade almond oil, almond milk and almond essential oil and is rounded off with the woody warmth of sandalwood and sweet benzoin. Sulphate-free, this creates a gentle lather suitable for all skins.

You’ll love this if you like:
– Sweet marzipan treats.
 Cherry Blossom bubble bar or Cookie Dough lip scrub.
– Gentle, soothing showers to calm skin and leave it feeling soft.

Benefits:
– Almond milk is both softening and moisturising on your skin, helping to protect it from the elements.
– Fair Trade almond oil not only softens and moisturises your skin, it also gives the Palestinian farmers who grow and harvest the almonds a steady income.
– Rose water calms and balances your skin, helping to alleviate redness and irritation.
– This shower gel is extra gentle, made with a new sulphate-free and palm-free formula. Let us know what you think at wecare@lush.co.uk.”

Nana

Nana shower gel

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

Lush introduced Nana shower in January of 2020.

Its made with Banana decoction and Oat decoction. Both are good for skin. Doctor’s even recommend these for patients with dry, itchy skin.

Lush has a new formula of shower gel which contains no palm oil and no sulphates.

It smells like a cross between vanilla pudding, slight banana, and Lush ‘Let the Good Times Roll’ facial cleanser (which is made from corn).

Its somewhat similar to Yog Nog but doesnt have the toasty butterscotch note that yog nog has.

Its consistency is somewhat thick. It feels great to shower with.

This will be a regular in my shower as soon as my yog nog runs out.

Here’s my video showing it

Yog Nog shower gel

5 out of 5 rating. See my demo, description & review video below.

Yog Nog

Oh my goodness. This is a wow product. The minute i slathered this on in the shower i knew i was in love.

Lush has made a soap, smoothie rhoulade, bubble bar, lotion, spray perfume, perfume oil, shower jelly, reusable bubble bar, and now finally a shower gel. Although its cdrtainly more like a shower cream because its so thick and decadent.

Everything that we love about yog nog is in this shower gel. The sweet, caramely richness was dying to be in this form so we could rub it all over ourselves. It FEELS so lushious on the skin. The scent is nice and strong and true to form.

Perfect yummy goodness.

And even better its a shimmery gold color!

*swoons*

Thank you Lush ❤️

This might be my favorite Christmas product this year.

Make sure you get the biggest bottle you can.

Oh…i also understand there is going to be a solid (naked) packageless version of this too!

Happy shower gel

5 out of 5 rating. See my demo, description & review video below.

Happy

One of two new shower gels this Christmas.

This smells like fruity bubblegum. Thats exactly what it smells like to me. I was surprised. Its made with lemon oil, orange oil and neroli oil. It also has wLnut leaf and dandelion root infusion.

Its a blue-green, medium thick gel with lots of multi colored shimmer.

Because of the ingredients i expected this to smell more citrussy, but its sweeter than i expected.

If you like fruity bubblegum you’ll like this shower gel.

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! ❤️

Turmeric Latte shower gel

3 out of 5 rating

I love the creamy goodness of the Lush Turmeric Latte bath bomb, so i was excited to get the shower gel.

Upon examination i was surprised there wasn’t glitter in this particular shower gel, since the bath bomb makes TONS of gold glitter in the bath water.

The scent is one of those sort of non-descript scents. Its a cross between perfume-y and food-y.

It smells like a combination of mens cologne and pie.

Yes.

So its a very different kind of scent. It’s scent does seem to cling onto the skin long after my shower. I can smell it on my arma couple of hours after my shower.

Since turmeric latte isn’t made with coffee, nor chocolate it doesnt smell like an American Cafe Latte. Turmeric is a spice used in indian cooking and other foods. Its what lends the golden color.

Tumeric latte is made with golden milk.

And thats what this scent smells like.

While i like it and will use it, i don’t love it. Its nice and confitioning to my skin, moreso than the other Lush shower gels. And its consistency is nice and thick.

Intergalactic shower gel

4 out of 5

Lush made six shower gels from six popular bath bombs. Intergalactic being one of the six.

The bath bomb is very popular because of its looks and its scent. Its cobalt blue and full of

Glitter.

Like a planet, in space, amongst the sparkly stars.

The bath bomb is sweet, minty, woody and citrussy. However, the shower gel loses some of its sweetness, and its woodiness in the translation. So the shower gel is minty and herbal with a jint of grapefruit. Not as sweet though, and not as layered in scent.

But nice smelling nonetheless. ❤️

In this short video clipi show the gels consistency by pouring it in a bowl.

Guardian of the Forest shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

I am very excited that Lush included Guardian of the Forest in their newest ‘we’re making shower gels of your favorite bath bombs just because’.

As i state in my video i think of GOTF as a new classic Lush green scent. Its both deep green but also bright with cypress.

Its a translucent gel. I was somewhat disppointed that it doesnt have glitter since the bath bomb has emerald green glitter but its not a huge deal because im just glad to have a nice green smelling shower gel to enjoy!

It smells like I’m in a forest or a fairy glade only not quite as woody as the bath bomb.

Rosewood, oakmoss, cypress, and lime.

The gel is nice and thick and it lathers up nicely on my skin.

Its such a soothing, grounding scent.

The forest is alive. Can you hear the trees whispering the secrets of the earth to you? They beckon you onward. Feel the carpet of cool, thick moss beneath your bare feet as citrus sunlight breaks through the trees ahead, gilding the world in dappled gold and green. Follow the footsteps of a mysterious creature and emerge into a clearing, a trickling waterfall in a glade of rosewood and cypress – the heart of the forest. Let the ethereal tranquility surround you as you step beneath the water, earthy oakmoss and cleansing lime washing away any trace of the world beyond. It’s just you and the trees.

List of ingredients

Cookie Dough lip scrub

4 or 5 out of 5 rating

This smells EXACTLY like real cookie dough.

As i describe in my video below, it tastes more like a genersl bakery goodness as this lip scrub is made with almond, vanilla, hazelnut and cocoa.

Its nice consistency makes it easier to appky than some lush lip scrubs because it adheres to your finger better so youre able to pack it on your lips easier. It hold together more because there is extra moisturizing goodies in here.

Here is my demo and review of it. I hope it helps decide if you do or don’t want to purchase it. 🙂

If you’re a fan of getting your hand stuck in the cookie jar, get your fingers stuck into this cocoa and vanilla lip scrub! Polish your pout to absolute perfection with a combination of course granulated sugar and superfine sea salt. An intriguing blend of vanilla, almond essential oil, carob and fir balsam creates a mouthwatering baked goods flavour that really takes the biscuit. You’ll go nuts for the blend of shea butter, toasted hazelnut and pistachio oils that all work wonders to make your lips feel hydrated and protected while creating the buttery biscuit base of this lip-smacking treat.

List of ingredients

Avocado Co Wash scent family

There are one or two other products that arent in this photo.

All the avocado co wash products made by Lush over the tears and currently are listed below in order of the originating product at the top of the list.

Avocado Co Wash hair conditioner

Avocado Co Wash shower gel. This is a thick shower gel.

Avocado Co Wash body lotion

Melusine exclusive, limited edition bath bomb

Avocado Co Wash exclusive uk body spray

Avocado Co Wash naked shower cream

I’m also checking to make sure that one of the Lush 2018 ‘bauble melts’ isnt avocado Co Wash scented.

 

Its a very sour lime scent with a nice sweet note in it. It’s quite a big burst of a limey fragrance made with sweet, fruity bergamot oil, fragrant incense-y yet citrussy frankincense (olibanum), and the lemony litsea cubeba herb.

There is the addition of avocado, which is moisturizing and softening for skin and hair.

There is rosemary, nettle, vinegar and lavender flower in the conditioner.

Lush American Cream scent family photo

American Cream is a vanilla based scent which also has clary sage, and lavender as its scent components.  The hair conditioner added strawberry.  The other American Cream products have strawberry in them…but….American Cream products do not smell like strawberry.  It’s made with strawberry, it’s not strawberry scented. And in the perfumery industry there IS a difference between those two sentences. :-)I like to make that clear, so that people won’t spend their hard earned money on something that they think will be strawberry scented, only to be disappointed when it’s not.

And rest assured Lush doesn’t claim the American cream scent smells like strawberry either.  I know because I’ve talked the the owner of lush about this very thing.

Now, onto what it DOES smell like, to most people, including myself.  It smells like creamy vanilla, with a light whiff of herbal clary sage and a pinch of herb-y lavender.

Below i’ll list what is shown and what isn’t shown in my photo above.

Cinders shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

This is the long awaited (if youre an OG Lushie) Cinders shower gel.

Many Lushies have been wsiting for a shower gel of Cinders since lush first introduced their Cinders bath bomb during holidays past.

The Cinders bath bomb (and later – uk forum perfume that i bought on the forum) has a base of orange oil and cinnamon leaf.

This shower gel however, adds some extra pumpkin pie spices that were not in the original. Alspice, nutmeg, clove, and pumpkin puree!

So itslike a combination of orange and pumpkin pie. Quite different.

Im surprised this isnt called a shower cream since it has extra moisturizing properties like almond oil and pumpkin seed oil.

I like the orange color for Fall. And i like that Lush added the obligatory American spice mix.

The consistency is a nice medium-thick.

The scent doesnt partcularly last on the skin.

I would drfinitely enjoy using the large bottle i have and the naked Cinders shower gel also, but i dont know that id care to buybanothrr bottle. Thsts why i rate Cinders shower gel a 4 out of 5 rating.

Here is a 7 minute close up sink demo i recorded of Cinders shower gel.

Antiope

Naked shower gel for Mothers day. See my sink demo and review video below!

Antiope is the name of the Amazonian in ‘Wonder Woman’.

this scent is earthy and orangey. It gets even better smelling when you use it. Initially, the clay gives a strange note to the fragrance, but as you use it the orangey scent comes out and combined with the fresh, calming scent of the bentonite clay.
