Good Day Sunshine soap

3.5/4.0 out of 5 rating. See my sink demo and review video below.

Lush introduced this and other soaps online on their up site first and today this Good Day Sunshine and also Michelle Ma Belle soap are available in the U.S.

“Carved like an engraved offering to a Mayan Sun God, this vibrantly bright and beaming citrus-scented soap presents a thick crown of golden yellow bath bomb mix, which when used for the first time kisses your skin with fizzing foam, welcomed like warm rays on a summer’s day. The dazzling orange, vegan aquafaba base offers notes of sparkling lemon myrtle, zesty lime and uplifting neroli to flip your mood sunny side up, while exfoliating chia seeds offer a delicate polish that leaves skin feeling soft and bright enough to rival the sun. “

It doesn’t foam up as it says on the website. Lush has added bath bomb mixture to the soap so that it produces a nice shower bomb type of foam, but I couldn’t get either soap to foam up when I used them at the sink nor in the shower.

Regardless, I like using the soap.

It’s got the same scent as the ‘Brightside” bubble bar.

Michelle Ma Belle soap

3.5/4.0 out of 5 rating. See my sink demo video below.

Lush introduced this and one other soap (Good Day Sunshine) first in the uk, on their website, which is where I got mine. These two soaps along with four others were introduced first at the Lush Liverpool spa megastore, along with 350 other new products.

Today it’s available in the U.S..

Lush made this in the popular Christmas yog nog scent. I guess they decided to make the yog nog soap in a different look and make it permanent.

“Engraved like an Aztec monolith hidden deep within the jungle, this decadently creamy gold bar reveals a new world of soap for you to explore. An iridescent layer of shimmering shower bomb is pressed into the embedded labyrinth design, like sand covering a long-lost clue. But don’t blow it away like dust on an old map, instead revel in its fizz and rich, thick foam as you turn it this way and that under the warm running water, revealing the secret of its carved pathways. A treasure trove of rich aromas lies in store; spiced vanilla, butterscotch, dolcelatte. Gold clay merges with chunks of white Amazonian clay, filled with minerals and nutrients of the rainforest’s fallen fruits and leaves, together they cleanse and gently exfoliate, leaving the skin soft and revived. Digging a little deeper, other marvels emerge; castor oil, cocoa butter and coconut oil for a creamy lather that is sure to leave your hands, and everywhere else, with the Midas touch.”

I wonder why. Does this mean we won’t be getting yog nog soap for Christmas?

Regardless it’s a nice soap. I must say however that the bath bomb stuff they decided to add to the soap mixture doesn’t foam up as their description says. I demo’d two different pieces on my video below and neither of them ‘foamed up’.

The feel of the soap is very nice. I enjoyed washing with it in the shower.

Sleepy soap

4 out of 5 rating

This soap was made exclusively for the New Lush Liverpool mega store, but Lush Uk decided to offer this on their retail website for anyone who wished to purchase one.

Naturally i had to buy one.

It was made in the classic Lush Twilight fragrance.

The fragrance components are lavender, tonka bean (which smells caramel-ish), and ylang ylang.

The blend is floral, herbal with a subtle creamy background. Its only very subtley sweet.

When washing with it this has a creamy consistency. It makes loads of lather.

I recorded a relaxing ASMR style 8 mi ute review and demo video, just for something different.

Even if you dont like asmr videos it does show how it lathers up at the sink on my arm and hands.

Strawberry Whip soap

5 out of 5 rating. See my 4 minute sink demo video below.

£6.50 per 100g (transferred to american dollars this becomes $8.28). I wonder what Lush NA price will be per 100g? 😉

I always considered the Strawberry Twin Tub/Two Timing Tart scent to be a 4 out of 5…..vs. the 5 out of 5 rating that i give the other YYY/Strawberry Santa strawberry scent. Not a big difference.

Heres my video. I cut it open.

I ordered three of these this morning. This means that ill get it in the mail in about a week or two.

One of my Instagram followers @rosesangria asked if the scent of this was the yummy yummy yummy/strawberry santa lush product scent. I answered No, its from a retro product scent called ‘Strawberry Twin Tub‘ that was from a jelly that they made in the mid 2000’s. It has a companion bubble bar called “Two Timing Tart’ (and old review from me about it).

I verified this with Lush though just incase.

But even though its slighy different the difference is not noticeable to alot of folks.

This one has Jasmine, strawberry santa and yummy yummy yummy does not.

Also, this strawberry whip does not have frankincense whereas the other does.

Ive used the 2006 strawberry twin tub jelly, and its bubble bar companion ‘Two Timing Tart’ because these products was created for one of my friends ‘Twinmum’ on the Lush Uk customer forum.

This strawberry whip soap will have a wee bit more floral/perfume-y, less fruity scent than the other strawberry scent.

I don’t like lots of Lush products that have Jasmine, because they smell gross. This is NOT like those gross jasmine products.

Because it smells nice, the smell is stronger, its more moisturizing than regular lush soaps. Its got a middle layer of cocoa butter inside. Also, its bigger than i expected. Its not a tiny soap….i give it a 5 out of 5.

North Polar Bear Left the Tap On

4 out of 5 rating

2018

This is a gorgeous new soap for Christmas made in the Lush ‘Sex Bomb’ scent. The scent is made with jasmine, rose, clary sage, synthetic musk. this soap adds lingonberry to the mix however.

I took some video footage of it at the creative showcase

Lush gas made many products with this same scent. I took a photo below of them all, except one is missing. Anyway this is a floral scent. If you like flowers and other floral scents you would like this NPBLTTO soap.

One thing that i like about it is that the sexy scent stays on the skin even after rinsing, drying off. Hours later i get a slight whiff of it’s sexy perfume.

Its not sweet, its smells mostly like rose and clary sage to my nose, but each persons nose can pick out different notes as primary.

The scent was made to be sexy, and that it is.

I like that we can choose yellow or green. The large soap inthe shops looks aaesome, i took a photo of the North Polar Bear soap at the Lush Creative Showcase.

The product missing from my scent family photos below is ‘Sex n the Shower’ emotibomb.

Lush Description: My Dear Children,

It has been such a long time since I last wrote to you, I hope you are all doing well. Things at the North Pole have been a bit hectic again. We have had a few fairly peaceful years but I should have known that wouldn’t last. You remember my dear friend North Polar Bear and the mischief he would get up to? Well, he has gone and done something silly again. I’m getting too old for these things now.

I was taking a bath, usually it is North Polar Bear who takes baths but even I like them sometimes, as it had been a very busy and tiring week and my bones creak a little now you see and I find that the hot water helps immensely. I was soaking happily (my favourite soap is made with jasmine absolute and ylang ylang oil as it makes me feel happy and even Father Christmas deserves some floral sometimes), when all of a sudden a roaring, rushing sound surrounded my house and the sky lit up like a bonfire! I leapt from the bath in a such a hurry that I splashed the lingonberry infused water all over the floor and dashed out of the bathroom, nearly forgetting my towel in my haste!

As I went outside, it looked like the sky had been set on fire with swirling colours of blue and green and yellow and red and I knew just what had happened. North Polar Bear had left the tap on for the Northern Lights and let two years out in one go! He says it was an accident but I think he just wanted to cause a bit of mischief for old times’ sake. It’s set to be another couple of dark Christmases for us here at the North Pole thanks to him, but the candlelight is quite charming and comfortable really so I don’t mind too much. I rather missed his antics.

I hope you are doing very well. Sending my love to you all.
Yours always, Father Nicholas Christmas

Strawberry Santa

5 out of 5 rating

See my short demo video below

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 yummy 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.
