Hot Toddy

4 out of 5 rating. smells of cloves, cinnamon

This came out for Yule 2003. It smells nice and warm for the winter months. It smells spicy, orangey, foody, and a little spicylike Coca Cola or something. It’s a nice orange caramel and spice scent. Hot Toddy was wildly popular with Lushies when it was made both times. I am the only Lushie on the planet who doesn’t think Hot Toddy is the best thing since sliced bread. But I do think it’s good.

Lush Times description: The hot toddy is our Celtic grandmother’s cure for a cold or a chill: whiskey (or whisky), lemon juice, honey and hot water. The Lush Hot Toddy will suit even the tee-total grans because you don’t drink it, you crumble it under the running water to make a warm, fruity, spicy bath with lemon peel, muscovada sugar, cinnamon, lime, clove and a pinch of paprika and a hint of soothing patchouli. It takes the chill off after coming in from the cold.

Ingredients: 100g £1.95

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Clove Leaf Oil, Patchouli Oil, Lime Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Orange Oil, Muscovada Sugar, Lemon Peel, Crushed Cinnamon, Paprika Oleoresin.

Lush made a shower gel (and a few other things) from this scent.

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

4 out of 5 rating

Unfortunately for my extensively dry skin It’s not the most moisturizing shower gel. that’s the only reason it’s a 4 and not a 5.

See my Jolly Demo/Description/Rating Video below

This is a different scent for a Lush shower gel. It has Orange, cinnamon, clove. I thought that because of the ingredients that this has it would smell like Lush ‘Hot Toddy’, Lush ‘Glögg’ or even Lush ‘Taai Taai’ shower gel. Its not like Lush ‘Ponche’ shower gel either.

It doesn’t smell like any of those. Nor does it smell like any of the Lush orangey shower gels. I mean..it does smell orangey but not *just* orangey.

in the video below i squeeze the gel onto a plate and tilt the plate so you can see how slow it falls

It has a light spice to it. Its refreshing but has a little something to it. Its more of a full bodied scent than most citrus orange scents.

I like it a lot. Its festive and well, Jolly! 😊

Oh, and there is no glitter in this shower gel.

I would definitely suggest this shower gel.

I had this wonderful shower gel that i wrote about here called ‘Taai Taai’ i bought it from a UK lushie in 2006. Lush made it for their Dutch Lushies. The ingredients sounded a bit similar. But nope, not at all similar.

Description: This is a special shower gel made especially for the Dutch Lushies. It’s based on the Sinterklas celebration. It was also available in the Leeds shop in England as a special for their party.

5 out of 5 (original version)

See my demo video of it below

4 out of 5 (new version)

Made as a limited edition for Christmas 2010-2011 only. And remade for the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen in 2014. It’s up for the vote again for the Lush Kitchen July 2021 Subscription Box

This has a nice, Christmas punch kind of scent. Having cinnamon, orange juice, Okum, buchu oil, davana oil, and petigrain oil. All very fruity notes. The original version had tequila in it (like the punch that it’s named after), but for some reason they took it out. When they did that it changed the smell. It lost its bright note, but it’s still a nice scent.

Lush made a perfume of this exclusively for one day only on the Uk website in 2014.

Lush ‘Icing on the Cake’ smoothie rhoulade had the ponche scent as well.

Ingredients: Water, Plum Infusion, Cinnamon Infusion, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, orange juice, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, Davana Oil, Buchu Oil, Petitgrain Oil, Tequila, Eugenol, Geranoil, *Linalool, *Limonene, Colour 15510, Methylparaben.

Lush Times: Ay! Ay! Ay! It’s Christmas! Do not fear the winter blue, dear amigos! Take a shot of this zesty tequila and lime gel in your shower for amorning fiesta, sure to wake even the sleepiest morning monsters. Ponche was invented after a member of Lush HQ traveled through Mexico and enjoyed their traditional fruity party punch. Bring on the tequila!

hHere’s a demo and review video i did of this shower gel.

Roasting Chestnuts On An Open Fire

3 out of 5 rating

This is a new Lush limited edition product for Christmas 2020

This was made in the same yummy scent as Lush ‘Christmas Cake’ soap from long ago. But my nose does not smell the similarity. My nose smells the chestnuts, and i don’t like it.

It gets a point for being more moisturizing than most Lush shower gels but This shower gel is a no for me. I just can’t get past the smell.

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. Here below are more Lush products with the same exact scent:

Space Girl body spray

Space Girl bath bomb

Goth Fairy Sparkle bar

Star Harajuku store bubble bar

I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas bath bomb

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.

Freeze

4 out of 5 rating


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.

These are the Lush products made in the Let the Good Times Roll Scent family.

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.

Below are the many products that Lush has made and sold throughout the years with the yog nog scent.

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 clip 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.
