Beauty Sleep

5 out of 5 rating. See my video below where i apply it and review it.

Mark Constantine, owner of Lush Uk wanted to have a little fun so he decided to work with Helen Ambrosen on a new face and body mask.

They made it by adding a teaspoon of gorgeous moisturizer and then they added the ingredients to ‘Sleepy’, Lavender, Yang ylang and Tonka.

when they finalized the product he announced that they will let us have a crack at naming the product. So people submitted they’re names and a handful of people chose ‘Beauty Sleep’ and this is the name that won.

it’s a perfect name. the mask smells amazing! if you know what the gorgeous moisturizer smells like you can imagine that plus sleepy.

instructions recommend slathering it on your face and your arms, neck, chest, back, stomach and then let it stay on your skin for 10-20 minutes while you’re in the tub or in the shower. Then after that time just rinse it off.

it’s got ground adult beans for exfoliating and it’s LOADED with many moisturizing ingredients.

it’s a beautiful pinkish lavender color.

Lo and Behold when those of us who bought the Lush Kitchen subscription box from Lush Uk opened up our June boxes we found a surprise: a container of Beauty Sleep face and body mask. Yay!

As far as Lush masks go i really like this one. it made my skin feel cleansed and moisturized and it smelled gorgeous. Using it before bed was a good idea since the ingredients in ‘Sleepy’ (twilight) are conducive to sleep.

Sappho

2 out of 5 rating

Sappho perfume

“For a limited time only, 30ml bottles of this perfume will be available to order online. This perfume and the rest of The Florence Collection are also available in 100ml bottles in your nearest perfume library.”

Sappho is one of five perfumes which are only sold at the Florence, Italy Perfume Library store. But Lush Uk has them temporarily on their retail site uk.lush.com

I happened to be on the site looking at the mothets day producys and saw them there!

I wanted to like Sappho so much. I bought it because the ingredients vanilla, jasmine, sandalwood, tonka, orris, tobacco and anise seemed perfect.

List of ingredients

Especially when the description said this:

You’ll love this if you like:
– Powdery vanilla scents.
Vanillary perfume.
– Sunny sapphic sensuality on a Greek island.

But when i spray it on, it smells great for a minute then these note come through thats like licorice, jaine and tobacco and this overrides the lovely vanilla quality.

If the licorice-y note wasnt there it would be so good, but unfortunately it burns my nose, just turns strange and is way too strong with my body chemistry. The part thats left over loooonngg after its dried down hours later is aactually kind of nice

actually kind of nicely soft and vanilla like, but it takes literally hours to become this nice scent. I think Lush shpuld take the anise out of it.

“Fell in love with a girl?

Bittersweet and inescapable, this ode to a striking poetess, the Tenth Muse, will shake your senses. Classical orris entwines with carnal jasmine to enchant deep desires.”

Magic Rabbit bath bomb

5 out of 5 rating.

See my 3 minute Tub Demo Vidro below.

This bomb has paper ears. It’s Super fruity with Davana oil and Tonka bean oil.

It smells like peach, berries and vanilla to me.

This is a gorgeous bomb. So whimsical. Its a new bomb this Easter with a new shape. The black turns to a deep purple in the water. There is no sparkle in the water.

its a slow melty fizzer which i like bevause i can watch it for a long time as it fizzes in the tub. It crackles with popping candy as it dissolves in the tub.

The vivid red from the hat’s stripe is so striking against the purple. This is a wonderful bomb for bath art.

The water looks blackish purple after its all disdolved. It didnt stain my tub or anything. It was quite easy to simply rinse once with my shower spray. Just don’t hold it in your hand as it dissolves as it will stain your fingertip.

Im glad i bought two. I would highly recommend this bath bomb.

Here’s a video i recorded of it in the tub before i hopped in.

Roller body spray

5 out of 5 rating

See my 3 minute drmo and review video below

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.

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.

Puddy Holly

4 out of 5 rating

£4.95/$6.49
This is not a returning product but is new.

This smells yummier than i thought it would. I thought it might be spicy like lush holly go lightly but Puddy Holly smells different, like a yummy almond and vanilla dessert.

Puddy Holly is made with Tonka. Tonks bean smells much like vanilla onky a bit carmely.

Its not a strong heavy scent but more of a medium light scent.

Its got conditioning cocoa butter sandwhiched in the middle, which is moisturizing to my uber dry skin.

I like the pretty emerald colored water it gives.

There is also a bit of silver sparkle. Not a large amount though, its every so slight.

I would buy another, but i wouldn’t stock up on them. Thats why i give this bubble bar a 4 out of 5 rating.

Description: Have a holly, jolly bathtime,
Almond oil sweetens your day!
Water a-glow with bubble mountains of snow
And soothing slicks of shea.

Have a holly, jolly bathtime
In a marzipan scented dream.
Soft cocoa butter on your toes,
And fifty shades of green.

Have a holly, jolly bathtime
Let bergamot give you cheer.
Oh by golly have a holly jolly bathtime
This year!

Here is a demo of it in the tub that i recorded for you

Have a holly, jolly bathtime,

And fifty shades of green.

Sleepy shower gel

5 out of 5 rating
See my 5 minute demo video below

£19.95 520g (converted to $26.01)

this is a lighter purple, creamier version of previous years ‘Twilight’ shower gel.
Sleepy gel has added oat milk which helps to make it a more opaque appearance.

There is no sparkle in this shower gel.

it smells exactly like the Twilight i know and love. it has the same lavender oil, ylang ylang and tonka base.

Again this year lush has made a naked or solid containerless version of Sleepy shower gel.

i enjoy the different look to this shower gel.
oat milk helps soothe itchy raw or sore skin.

Sleep, drift to sleep,
Sweet tonka counts the sheep,
Lavender shakes the dreamland tree,
And from it fall sweet dreams for thee.

After a long day, relax into a soothing, softening wash of oat milk and carrageenan extract. If sleep eludes you, the sheep keep escaping or sweet dreams are feeling distant, shower with calming lavender flower infusion and lavender oil to ensure you sleep tight. Ylang ylang oil washes away worries and allows you to sink into bedtime, or start your day, with serenity.

Here is a short video i recorded close up sink demo of sleepy shower gel.

29 High Street shower gel

Made in the Lush Kitchen Friday July 28

I love this shower gel.  It’s a nice thick consistency.  It has great throw so you can smell the lovely scent all while you’re showering with it.  It’s lovely scent stays on the skin a bit longer than other lush shower gels.


It’s not particularly moisturizing, and doesn’t have any cocoa butter.  Nor does this shower gel have any glitter.

The 29 High Street was made to have the scent of a Lush store.  So various lush store favorites are represented here, honey i washed the kids, karma, avobath, etc.

Because of these things, and also because this shower gel is so rare, I would rate this shower gel a 5 out of 5 rating.  I would highly recommend it.  I bought six bottles.

Roller bath bomb

5 out of 5 rating

See my demo video below of this gorgeous bath bomb

Roller bath bomb was made with the scent of the Yummy Mummy shower gel and Yummy Yummy Yummy shower gel

Here’s a couple of photos (and 5 minute video of it in the tub below) that i took of my bath experience with Lush “Roller’ bath bomb.  This scent is similar to ‘yummy mummy’ shower gel, even more fruity.

Here’s a demo video i made showing the crazy beauty of this wonderful bath bomb

In the photo below i gathered all the products that Lush has made with the same scent. yummy Mummy shower cream, body conditioner and Roller bomb.

Exclusive to Lush Oxford Street superstore.  Has the scent of Yummy Yummy Yummy shower gel.

Five Gold Rings bubble bar 2015

See my video demo below £4.95
Crumble under running water for a creamy
Fair Trade vanilla filled bath, infused with
skin-softening illipe butter and nourishing
moringa oil.
I think that two rings would be perfect for one bath. One was good, but two would be more the size of a regular bubble bar.

Fun With a Twist

Lush Kitchen online made this special FUN bar which isn’t made or sold anywhere else in the world.

They made it out of two favorite bath bombs; “Dragon’s Egg” (the orange twist) and “Twilight” (the purple twist).  The citrus with the tonka and lavender is sooo good.  Who knew these two scents would be so wonderful together.  You can also use just the purple piece or just an orange piece to have a purple or orange colored bubble bar.

Twilight shower gel

Twilight

The first Twilight shower gel ever made was a Lush UK forum member only special.  The lush bath bomb called Twilight had come out in stores new that year and everyone loved it, so when Mark C asked what we wanted special, we said “a shower gel made out of that new bath bomb that we love’.  The movie Twilight had just come out.  The original (above picture)was made in a light purple color at that time to look like twilight.  Twilight is not Night time, so i never understood why they made it darker purple (below), but i’m not complaining about the shower gel itself .  It’s fragrance is a Gorgeous herbal lavender note and then a sweet caramel tonka bean (like vanilla bean) note.  And they work marvelously together.  Who would have thought to put these two things together.  Brilliant.

The Lush Kitchen made this again for us to purchase on their on line site.  Thank you lush Kitchen.  I bought five bottles. 🙂

Soot Ball

Product Story

See my 3 minute video of this below.  Earlier this year, the Gorilla Perfume team hosted a ‘scented cinema’ event at which Hayao Miyazaki’s film Spirited Away was shown. This bath bomb is inspired by the ‘soot gremlins’ from his films – little creatures that dwell in the shadows of houses that, when crushed between the hands, dissolve into black soot.

Description:

He’s watching you…!

Let this surprising little bath bomb spirit you away into a golden, lustre-filled bath.

Don’t worry, Soot Ball won’t turn your bath water black – instead we’ve filled this bath bomb with radiant golden lustre, to feel as though you’re bathing in luxurious liquid gold. The olibanum (frankincense) is known for its calming and grounding effect on the mind, whilst the burnt caramel scent of tonka absolute and earthy sandalwood oil together create a sweet, spicy fragrance that wafts through the steam.


Here’s the video i made of this gorgeous little Soot Ball in the bath.

Quantitative Ingredients:

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Tonka Absolute, Australian Organic Sandalwood Oil, Fair Trade Columbian Cocoa Butter, Fair Trade Shea Butter, Olibanum Retinoid (Frankincense), Benzoin Resinoid, Perfume, Radiant Gold Lustre, Paper Eyes
