Lush 2005 description: We’ve finally given in to pressure and made a strawberry shower gel, but as we’re Lush, there’s no way it was going to resemble anyone else’s synthetic strawberry products. For starters, ours has real strawberries in it, plus immensely expensive, soothing jasmine essential oil and sweetly scented geranium. You don’t get those in your chain store bottled stuff, oh no! Strawberry Twin Tub was inspired by the need to keep a couple of young twins quiet at bath time. Buy two, and let them throw wobbly jellies at each other until they’re nice and clean and ready for bed. (Adults may do the same thing, if they like.)
Review: This jelly was made by Lush to smell like their discontinued bubble bar called “Two Timing Tart”. The jelly is a nice balance of fruity and floral. This was made by Lush UK for another mom of twins “Twinmum” from the International forum.
Roller bath bomb is my favorite Lush bomb for looks and scent. I love everything in this scent family. I love the caramelly strawberry notes of this scent. Its very sweet and very strong when first sprayed. So keep in mind if you dont like sweet scents you might not enjoy roller spray.
As i show in the video i sprayed 1 1/2 sprays and as soon as it dries down it lessens in strength but not as much asany body sprays do. Roller stays pretty true to how it smells in the bottle. It smells the ssme on my skin. I only had to spray this 2-3 times during the day for it to last all day so its fairly strong comparatively speaking.
Scent Description:Within this delectable strawberry and cream scent swims a harmonious mingling of geranium, fresh Brazilian orange and sweet tonka absolute.
You’ll love this if you like:
– Bold geranium florals.
– Magic Mushroom bubble bar or Yummy Mummy shower gel.
– Hitting the strawberry fields for some wholesome berry picking.
See my 6 minute sink demo of both the potted and naked versions video below.
I love that Lush made a body conditioner from one of its popular hair conditioner (American Cream) fragrance. And i like that they named it American Pie like the exclusive shower jelly from a couple of years back from lush.co.uk
The fragrance of it is akin to a vanilla milkshake. In fact the hair conditioner which started this all was made to mimic an American cocktail which tastes like a vanilla milkshake.
Lush has made more than a dozen different products in this same blend of vanilla, lavender, clary sage and strawberry juice.
Think of this as a hair conditioner for the body. In my demo video i show how to apply it and how to rinse it off.
This works well for me. I live in the desert southwest and my skin is VERY dry and this works really well at moisturizing without feeling greasy or oily.
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.
From newest to oldest.
American Cream body conditioner (potted and solid)
Lush has opened up a new store in the Harajuku area of Japan. At this new, special store Lush will sell 35-50 exclusive bath bombs. One of these exclusive Japan Harajuku store bombs isMarshmallow World.
Its made with the popular scent of a Lush hair conditioner called ‘American Cream’, which is an herbal vanilla blend.
It’s made with strawberries for their skin properties , not for the primary scent. The scent is sage-which is a bitter herb-and vanilla, and we all know what vanilla smells like. So put bitter herbs and vanilla together with a bit of lavender, which is even more of an herbally flower, and you have the American Cream scent.
So you can see that it doesn’t smell like strawberries.
I like to stress this fact because i always see disappointed people writing lush comments like ‘but it doesnt smell like strawberries like some of your other strawberry scented things’.
Whew. Now that we have that out of the way 😉 let me talk about what this bomb looks like.
Marshmallow World is such a pretty bomb on the outside, with lovely pink and having purple and yellow striations. It pooks like an unfamilair but fun planet.
It fizzes and makes a baby pink foam and turns the water a light pink color. This bomb must have somethung special in it which is softening to the skin. It feels moisturizing a bit.
What a beautiful scent. While American Cream scent isn’t my favorite, i don’t hate it either by any means. Its a calming scent to me. I think its quite a meditative scent..with a teaspoon of yumminess thrown in.
Lush has made three other bath bombs in the past years with the American Cream scent with different names. But i must say this is the prettiest version.
It doesnt make full-on bath art per se, but it is still beautiful as it fizzes in the tub.
I would by one more but its not one i would stock up on like i did with some of the other community favorites/Japan store bombs like ‘Tender is the Night’, ‘The Comforter’, ‘Melusine’, ‘Golden Pear’.

If youre an American Cream lover than i suggest you stock up on these limited edition beauties!
Lush description: Indulge in a sugar bath scented with American Cream – you’ll get all of the sweet-shop glee and none of the post-binge guilt. Vanilla scented with a touch of strawberry, this multi-coloured marvel is a fiesta of fizz. Marshmallow powder soothes and softens, while granulated sugar adds a sugary flourish, you’ll smell good enough to eat!
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.
Lush made this in the same blend as their popular liquid hair conditioner ‘American Cream’.
It smells like a vanilla milk shake. It’s only slightly sweet.
Review: This solid pink jelly has the scent of Lush’s “American Cream” hair conditioner. It smells even better than the hair conditioner in my opinion. I can actually smell the strawberry which isn’t as easy to pick out in the conditioner. Vanilla, lavender, sage, smells like a fresh milkshake.
Lush description: Vanilla and Clary sage shower jelly with a scent that makes people want to lick you all over. Freeze it, chill it, use it at bathroom temperature. Crush or stroke it all over your body and hair, lather and rinse out.
Lush description: Wish and swish. Turn your toothbrush into a magic wand with sparkles and strawberries.
Review: This is a fluoride and checmical free option for cleaning your teeth. Basically you wet your toothbrush, then stick the bristles in the tooth powder, and then brush as usual. It tastes like strawberry, and my teeth did feel squeaky clean afterwards. Even though it has sparkles the sparkle doesn’t stick to your teeth. I’m definitely using this one up. I have the other new toothy tabs to use before i can get another Toothy Fairy powder. Video coming very soon.
