This is how it usually starts 😊
I’m so confused at this point. It’s the Lush Kitchen that has the subscription boxes…so reading the email i got from the Lush Labs about their ‘monthly subscription box’ confused me.
Apparently the Lush Labs, that we all love and wished were coming back, has came back with a subscription box, But it’s Uk only. When i followed the link i got via email from the Lush Labs it said it was i’m only. probably because the products are things like fresh face masks.
So here’s the first box and it’s contents. 😊 It’s called the Fresh Flowers box. It has a couple of exclusive products in it. Two facial products.
1. Glen Cocoa face mask
2. Rolled Enfluerage
3. i pads the red, flat jelly looking things.
See my unboxing video and product descriptions in my video below 😊
Opens May 4, 1st shipment is June 1. Apparently this time around, (as opposed to 2014-2018 incarnation of the Lush Kitchen) the Lush Kitchen is going to be more like a subscription box. You must be registered for a subscription box in order to vote on the products. £35.00 for 4-5 items which would include a couple of retro, discontinued, a couple of voted for products and a possible surprise item.
What are your thoughts?

I receieved an email from the lLush Uk Kitchen announcing the new batch of Harajuku bubble bars, and Free Shipping. So i bought them. Apparently these are only available to purchase if we have registered for the Lush Kitchen subscription box.
Like ive been doing on the first batch of Harajuku bubble bars-i will create a tub demo video & review each of these for you on my youtube/instagram and here on its own page on my blog.

Roses are red, violets suit you
Sink into the lilac-hued waters of this floral classic. Posies of violet and spicy clove fragrance and soften your skin. The Ancient Greeks used violets in love potions and considered it a symbol of fertility and love – why not be seduced by this sweet, purple bath?
Before this bubble bar existed there was a liquid bubbke bath called Bathos which had the same scent as the bubble bar that came later but the liquid one was dark green. And before that they had a bath bomb called Bathosphere around 1999 or so which was green and had the same scent.
You’ll love this if you like:
– Swirly purple-hued baths that smell like violet flavoured sweets.
– The scent of Daddy-O shampoo, Sugar Daddy-O solid conditioner, or Kerbside Violet perfume. – Taking time to appreciate the small, fleeting moments in life.
– Violet leaf has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects on the skin.
– The scent of violets help to settle your mood and mind, aiding restful sleep.
– Ylang ylang oil helps to reassure and uplift, leaving you feeling happy and carefree.
How to use: Crumble under running water to fill your bath with purple rain and fluffy white bubbles. How to store: Keep in a cool, dry place to keep this potent bubble bar ultra-violet.
The classic spicy “Bathos” bubble bar gives great looking, deep purple water. It has the strong scent of sweet violets and spicy cloves. Barthes is VERY fragrant. There’s also a teeny bit of dark green glitter on the top. This bubble bar can stand alone without being combined with anything, however, if one wanted a violet theme you could use a violety “Ne Worry Pas” ballistic, wash my hair with the violet smelling “Daddyo”, rub some “Choco La La” massage bar on, and condition my hair with “Retread”.
Lush has made a liquid Bathos bubble bath in the past. It’s green. I’ll add that to my blog tomorrow.
Sometimes I like to go the “all purple” route, too and have Bathos with a Lush Jingle Spells bath bomb or a Lush Blackberry Bomb.
By the way, here’s a picture of a Bathos that is 5 years old. The dates on the wrapper there http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y181/lush-a-lot/lush%20products/Lushbatho1.jpg I found it at the bottom of one of my lush tupperware tubs.
Lush made a liquid Bathos bath foam previous to it becoming this purple bubble bar slice. It was a green bath foam, not purple like the bubble bar. Here’s a picture of the Bathos Bath Foam: http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y181/lush-a-lot/LushBathosbathfoamsml-1.jpg
Here’s a demo video i made
Lush Times 2006 Description: If you prefer to keep your bath to yourself and wouldn’t dream of allowing anyone else anywhere near the bathroom when you’re in there naked, please don’t allow the following suggestion to detract from your enjoyment of a bubbly, mauve Bathos bath. If you prefer to share your bath for reasons of ecological soundness or just plain fun, then Bathos is absolutely ideal! We make it with some of most sensual, relaxing essential oils on the planet, including lots of violet leaf which is reputed to help people remember why they got together in the first place. Don’t put one of these in the bath in the morning on a workday. Save it for later.

This solid bath oil”‘cream” is one of many new bath oils (and 300+ other products) from Lush exclusive to the new biggest Lush store in the world at the Liverpool spa.
Lush Uk decided to sell it on their retail website for sny of us who wanted to buy one. I bought two.
Apparently its sold out on the site now. Im hoping they release it for Halloween 2019.
Its made with Almond essential oil and ylang ylang, and is said to smell cherryish. Indeed it foes dmell cherryish. Originslly i thought this might be American Cream scented, but it isn’t. I noticed there is ylang ylang in here, which American Cream does not have. And the strawberry, lavender and sage which are in American Cream, are not in ‘cream. So i asked Lush and verified that this is a similar but a different scent.
I didnt realize it would make purple water!
Thefe is also a silver sparkle in the wster too.
I would recommend this. The color is nice and the scent is nice.

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.”
Please know, Lush may or may not introduce more new products in addition to these later. I have no knowledge of this but it could happen.
I’ll be adding links below which go to the blog pages for most of the below products, so you can look them up individually to see their review, demo video etc. Ill also add prices for you when i can get them.
I made a video too.

Lush has recently ooened up their biggest store world wide in liverpool. They introduced 350 new products starting at this store. One of these was this bath bomb.
Lush decided to have them available on their lush.co.uk retail site. Thats where i bought this.
Lush made this in their ‘Vanillary’ perfume scent. Its a yummylicous blend of creamy sweet vanilla tonka bean, grounding sandalwood, and sensual jasmine floral. Just the right amount.
This bath bomb is strong wuth the vanillary scent. Smells like sweet vanilla caramel custard pudding. YUM. Yet theres a subtle sensualness to it because of the sandalwood and jasmine.
Im sorry i didnt buy two.
The green and peach colors combine to make pretty bath art.
The combination ultimately making a peridot green color.

4 or 5 out of 5 rating. See my 3 minute close up sink demo of how it works, and i describe what scent family it’s scent is in the video below.
I love it. I wish it were a wee bit more moisturizing. But its near perfrct, im just being nitpicky lol. I love this product. I think evetyone should try it.
So here are three more lush scents that i recorded reviews on.
I hope it helps 🙂
I already have used five of them over the years. I ordered thefour i havent tried. Theyshoukd be here in a few days.
Should i make a video describing these five first, or wait?
Lush’s New “biggest store in the world”, Lush Liverpool store released 300 new Lush products, and Lush new concept store in Harajuku Japan have released 89 bath bombs.
Lush USA are releasing 54 of 89 new bath bombs online on March 29, 2019.
Ive used 25 of them because Lush International (Uk) had them at the annual 2018 Lush Creative Showcase where i bought them, so i can add my reviews of those here this week to help you decide.
I asked Lush President/owner/inventor Mark Constantine about it since so many people are asking me about it and i wasnt aware of it.
Mark stated ‘We are celebrating the thirtieth Birthday of Mo’s invention. 1989 was the year so we will be selling 89 bath bombs.”
Each shop manager gets to chose which ones they stock.
While Mark says he assumes all will be available on the US website, im understanding from some Lushies who received bath bombs in a press package that there will be 54 bombs, not the whole 89.
Color me surprised that Lush USA are doing something like this for customers.
I’ll have to take out a loan- but ill be getting all the 25 bombs that I haven’t tried yet.
Im trying to find out how long they will be online. Ill put that info here when i get it.
Ill look all over social media to gather all the bath bombs names and add them here in alphabetical order. Then of course ill add my demos and reviews when they go on sale, i buy them and they deliver them to my house.
Keep watching here as i update continually over the next week or more.

Please know-my husband and my daughter seperately did NOT like this jelly 🙂
As i said, and showed, in my haul video the consistency of this is perfect. Its firm and solid, not broken nor mushy. And Its gold! Straight away i can smell the strong scent of pears! It’s a stronger pear scent than in the soap even!
I can smell each of the ingredients; pear puree, cardamom, orange and just a smidge of sandalwood. Mostly i smell pear. My husband and daughter interpret this real pear smell to be similar to a paint smell. No matter how hard i try all i smell is pear. This wild swing in scent descriptions is similar to the mystery of the Great pyramids. Most of the time i can get why some things smell different to people. All I smell a vat full of juicy, sweet pears.
The color is golden all the way through. It leaves NO gold color whatsoever anywhere on your skin.
I literally like this jelly scent more than the golden pear soap, bomb, or body spray. I didn’t expect to like this so much to be honest.
As far as use i would use the bath bomb before i would reach for the jelly. But that said- im loving using this jelly.
Just a small note: golden pear jelly is not as creamy/conditioning as the Yummy mummy jelly.

Lush Uk have created 9 Community Favorites shower jellies.
Community favorites means; Lush asked us what our favorite product/scents are. Then they took the top nine answers with the most votes, and they made those nine into shower jellies!
Five of these jellies have not been made before. Three of these; Twilight, Sweetie Pie, Calacas have been made previously.
Yummy mummy is one of the scents that won and that Lush made a jelly of. I for one am SO glad because its one that i wouldve voted for. I have seven bottles of Yummy Mummy shower gel. And i once bought twenty Roller bath bombs. So i REALLY love this fruity, carmely scent.
Yummy mummy is made with strawberry puree, orange oil, tonka bean.
It smells like a strawberry shake.
This is what i originally imagined American Cream to smell like. Lol.
It took an enormous amount of control to buy only one pot of Yummy Mummy shower jelly.
Shower jellies can be used as soap, either whole, sliced, chopped up or frozen.
They can also be used as shampoo. And they can be used to get nice bath foam in the tub by holding it in your hand underneath the waterspout.
I used it whole, which i never do, and it worked really well. I was able to hold onto it without it dropping but your mileage may vary.
I washed with this and it smelled nice and strong. Its creamy like the Yummy Mummy shower cream.
It made a regular amount of creamy but foamy lather, not too much and not too little.
It didnt fall apart or anything. I just put it back in the pot when i was done showering with it.
Lush are selling these in the large size so this will last for months.
It has a 14 month expiry date.

See my sink/arm Demo in my Review Video below.
I demonstrate using it on my arm at the sink.
Lush ‘Carrot solid shower oil.
This was made for Easter 2017 or 18. Carrot was one of the last solid shower oils Lush made before they discontinued them.
Lush had a goodly amount of customers that didn’t like the new solid shower oils. A large amount of customers were not living for the new wave of Lush ‘naked’ products coming out at the time.
I didn’t mind the shower oils too much. I have dry skin and live in the desert so i would use it after i took a shower and my skin would feel pretty good and not greasy.
The shower oils were used kind of like the lush Avocado Co Wash for the hair. You wash in the shower as usual, then after you rinse the soap off your body, rub the solid shower oil on your bod, then rinse off.
Some folks skipped the washing with regular soap or shower gel part, which is like co washing.
It has a nice carrot-y almost floral perfume-y scent.
I have a sink demo video on youtube of carrot shower oil.

Yog Nog is an egg nog-like scent that has an added toasted caramel scent. Like creme brulee smells. Its so yummy that it fools you into thinking its edible. But its not.
My favorite of the bunch has to be the bubble bar. The perfume oil is the strongest.
Im glad i finally have enough things in this scent family to last me awhile. Perhaps ill sell a couple of them together.
This is a very popular set of products with Lushies. Lush has introduced it in one form or another every holiday season since 2013.
Here is a 30 second video
