Kitsune

5 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo i recorded at the end of this review.

Here’s a pic i took of the tray full of Kitsune bath bombs for you.

Here’s a video below that i recorded of the tray of them at the Lush Creative Showcase in England.

Here’s a picture of mine.

see my tub demo i recorded for you below.

i like the theme of this Kitsume bath bomb. Kitsume means Fox in Japanese. I like what Kitsume signifies, and its cute, looking like a cross between a cat, a shell and a fox.

In some cultures in japan it is a fox spirit which has magical powers.

It has a very citrusy scent. not sweet in any way. it reminds me of the Lush cheer up buttercup bath bomb scent.

It makes the water a lovely peach color. And there is also a gold sparkle. not too much sparkle, it’s minimal.

This bomb fizzes very fast and furious. really fresh!

It doesn’t have skin moisturizing properties in it.

All in all i love this bomb. i would buy another one or two.

Strawberry Santa

5 out of 5 rating

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 yumky 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.

List of ingredients

Candy Cane

3 out of 5 rating

£3.95 (converted to $5.13)

I like this new Candy Cane reusable bubble bar. For a reusable bubble bar its nice. Its harder for me to like the reusable kind for whatever reason. I guess its the softer texture i like. But like i said i make an exception for this one because of the way it looks. A perfect candy cane. Spot on. You can even hang it on the tree as an ornament.

Makes a cute stocking stuffer for Christmas.

I like the surprising fruity scent. Lush says its a new scent. The ingredients say its made with l lemon and bergamot.

For whstever reason i smell cherries, and im not complaining. I like this smell.

The color of the water is kind of a peach color.

This makes lots of bubbles! And as you can see from my video i had an entire bar left! More than enough for a second bath! Possibly a third.

While i like this i might buy one other but Im not sure what im looking for as far as bumping this to a higher rating. I guess because i like the bath bombs more than the bubble bars, and i like the reusables even less. Like i say its a 3 rating so that means i would indeed recommend it, its just not high up on the list of lush Christmas 2018 products. There are plenty of products for Christmas this year from Lush that i like more.

If it was not reusable but had the same shape, and had white and red sparkles on it and had mint along with the cherry, that would bump it up to a 4 or 5.

Here is a 2 minute tub demo i recorded for you of the Candy Cane reusable bubble bar.

Lush description: What’s red and white and can be used over and over? A decoration for the tree or a cheeky stocking filler, the possibilities are endless when you take a trip down candy lane. Hang out with this double stripe of bergamot and Sicilian lemon oils to lift the mood and create a fruity fresh fragrance that will have you bathing time and time again. Hold under the running water to froth up mounds of fluffy bubbles before placing on the side to dry, ready for your next trip to candyland.

Sugar Plum Fairy scrub

This is a 5 out of 5 product.

Its purple. Its cute. It smells like plums. It moisturizes my dry skin.

I am so enamored with this scrub. I prayed that Lush would bring back anything sugar plum or plum rain scented so imagine my surprise at this, the second plum scented new christmas product this year!

Typically i dont like the non-potted scrubs from Lush because they seem to dry out too quickly, making it eventually too scratchy to use on my skin.

Not so with this scrub. Its got seemingly double the regular amount of cocoa butter than others of its kind, making it a bit wetter.

This isn’t too big nor too small, it seems like just the right size to be able to use it up without it sitting around gettibg dry and scratchy.

Initially the dark color was worrisome but i didnt have to worry about any staining. There was none to be had.

Its got coarser exfoliating grains of sugar.

Here’s a close up demo video and review i recorded for you of the sctub on my arm at tge sink.

Scrub Scrub Scrub

4 out of 5 rating

Scrub scrub scrub is one of two new scrubs that Lush uk has made for 2018.

As i said in my review video, i like using this scrub scrub scrub more than the new magic crystals scrub.

The color of magic crystals scrub is a prettier color but i like using scrub scrub more.

Although this one is drier and thus more challenging to use, it doesnt sting like the magic crystals scrub which is wetter and easier to apply.

I like this smell. Its not quite the Comforter scent.

Its got a vaguely fruity blackberry scent. I like the scent, its comforting.

It has currant in it, like the comforter but it doesnt have the same scent.

For starters, there’s no bergamot nor cypress in it like there is in the comforter.

Also, scrub scrub scrub has pine, rosemary oil, and Buchu oil, which the Comforter doesnt have.

Its got the same size scrubbies that magic crystals has. One is not coarser than the other.

If youre very fair don’t leave the scrub on your skin for very long.

I would give this scrub a 4 out of 5 rating.

I like other companies vegan, cruelty free scrubs better.

Here’s a video where i show it up close

Magic Crystals

i would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a moisturizing, scrub cleanser.

Initially i rated it a 5 out of 5 but i will say that because of what a couple of my followers have stated, it’s best not to get this in sensitive areas as it can burn/sting quite a bit.

So because of that i changed my rating to 4 out of 5.

It’s still a great above average product.

Initially i thought this was some kind of scrubby shower soap, like a scrubbe smoothie. But upon using it in my demo i discovered that its not meant to wash with.

One washes first then uses this after rinsing your soap or shower gel off. Then you rinse it off. Its conditioning. Its very conditioning compared to rub rub rub.

This isnt a fine exfoliation, its a coarser consistency, so just fyi that as i know some of you don’t like a coarse scrub.

here is a video i recorded where i demo how to use it.

It diesnt smell particularly herbal considering there is a good amount of sage in here. I only smell mint. Its not extremely sweet.

Magic needn’t only be cast with a flick of a wand or a twitch of a nose, magic can come in a tub in the bathroom.

Hop in a hot shower and let the warm water dance across your skin before scooping out a handful of this scrub.

Warming and stimulating aniseed oil accompanies fine sea salt and Epsom salts to brighten, buff and polish skin while fresh rosemary and sage infusions cleanse and tone. Rinse off and let menthol crystals, peppermint and spearmint oils to leave cool tingles up and down your skin like the remnants of magic recently cast.

Mint bubble brush

Mint bubble brush is one of three new ‘bubble brush’ design type of re-usable bubble bars from Lush Cosmetics.

Lush has come out with five new re-usable bubble bars, three of them being in the bubble brush type. Mint is the blue one. Its got a minty scent that isnt too sweet. In fact i i wish it were a *bit* more sweet. Its the scent of their ‘Freeze’ shower gel.

Its not quite like Christingle body conditioner. Mint bubble brush isnt that sweet. Its the scent of their ‘Freeze’ shower gel.

I love the deep blue hue one can attain with this bubble bar. Its tun to drip blotches of blue on the bubbles. And it’s fun to paint the bubbles as i show in the video.

I enjoy combining colors, as those of you who have seen my bath cocktails know. I often like to create gradients or ombre effects with different bath products.

Well these new Lush bubble bars lend themselves well to this kind of blending, as ive tried to show below.

I think these new bubble brush bars are quite fun. I like that the three primary colors are represented. I would give these bubble brush bars a 4 out of 5. While i don’t particularly like the re-usable bubble bars as much as the regular lush bubble bars, these are fun because you can use them in different ways. I would buy another one of each color. But it’s not one i would stock up on.
