American Cream shower gel

3 out of 5 rating.

See my 8 minute video below. I worked very hard in this video to describe exactly what the scent smells like so you can make your best purchasing choices. 🙂

Here is a photo i took of the Lush products made in this scent.

the liquid version is on the thin side.

oddly i enjoyed washing with the naked version a bit more.

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.

My review and demo video 🙂

American Pie body conditioner

4 out of 5 rating

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.

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.

Marshmallow World

4 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute tub demo below

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 is Marshmallow 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’.

My tub demo

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!

For oilier skin.

See my demo video i recorded below.

This is a face mask made as a limited edition for Christmas 2018.

Its made with cocoa, vanilla, tangerine, orange, carageenan, fullers earth, and rhassoul mud.

Both rhasshoul mud and fullers earth are fantastic at zapoing oil on the skin.

I have dry skin, and it zapped any spec of oil i had on my skin.

The texture is nice and silky. It feels like pudding. Not like the more chunky texture of the Lush bio fresh face masks they sell in store.

This is like the texture of lush birth of venus face mask.

Oh, also, the red nose looks like half a cherry but is actually the same mixture as the mask. Cool!

This smells mostly of chocolate. Its like wiping brownie batter on ones face, but in the best possible way.

The carageenan made my skin noticeable softer. That was a wow.

The only teason i didnt rate this a 5 is because its not the proper one for my skin type. If you have oilier skin im sure you’ll find this a 5 out of 5 star rated product.

Here’s a video i recorded of it.

Candy Mountain Yule Log

4 out of 5 rating

Yeah, this isnt Snow Fairy scented firstly. Just wanted to get that out of the way.

This is Creamy Candy scented. Lush makes a bubble bar year round called ‘Creamy Candy’ in stores. Well every Christmas Lush makes a christmas themed Creamy Candy bubble bar and calls it ‘Candy Mountain.

Historically its looked kind of like a unicorn horn shape.

This year however, Lush has re-designed their Christmas Candy Mountain. It looks quite different. It has more of a laser cut mountain design. I like it, its more refined than past years Candy Mountain.

The reason people confuse this with snow fairy is because the two scents creamy candy and snow fairy/candy fluff are similar, but yhey are different and made with different scent ingredients such as synthetic musk and vanilla in varying degrees. Snow Fairy/Candy Fluff adds clove bud leaf.

This Candy Mountain has extra skin conditioning ingredients in it, moreso than other Lush bubble bars.

I recorded a 1 minute tub demo of it for you below

Royalty

5 out of 5 rating. See my Tub Demo video of it that I recorded for you below

This is a Lush Cosmetics bath bomb made exclusively for the New Lush Japan Naked ship opening at the beginning of the new year.

Jack Constantine was kind enough to give me one of each of the six exclusive bath bombs. However i had already bought two when i was at the showcase. So i have one left for a Giveaway!

Here’s a Bathtub Demo of it that I recorded for you

Royalty bath bomb is made with jasmine and vanilla. the lush person at the Creative Showcase told me there was also sandalwood in it.

A Gold Crown. What’s not to like?

The scent of Royalty reminds me of The Lush ‘Vanillary’ scent except this adds sandalwood.

See my tub demo of Royalty that i recorded below.

I don’t know if they add condoning things in this bath bomb but it definitely seems to be more conditioning than most lush bath bombs. The water almost becomes milky.

There is a beautiful gold shimmer in the water. Not too much though.
