I voted for these. Normally i would vote for Berry Berry Christmas instead of bucks fizz, but i still have two bottles of berry berry that i bought from before. Thats the only reason i didnt vote for it.
This deliciously self-centred chocolate body wash is packed with aloe vera and glycerine to soften and hydrate delicate skin.
How to use:
Completely vegan friendly, this is a great body wash for dry skin. Scoop out a good handful and inhale the rich cocoa aroma while you work it all over your body then rinse off.
100% RECYCLED POT
Deliciously hydrating and softening. Thisis the best product Lush has created in quite awhile. This smells more like straight up chocolate than any of the other chocolate things that Lush has made. It does remind me of the scent of Lush Walter Bunny scrub.
I describe the texture in my video below but it feels like a chocolate mouse in thepot and feels like silk when you rub it on your body.
This is one of many products only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar gift set.
Lush Uk had a Sleepy pop up event in September October 2021 time frame. They had many exclusive Sleepy products not available in stores. This Sleepy bomb was one of them. Lush Uk decided to add it to the Christmas Advent Calendar gift set as an exclusive amongst all the other goodies in the calendar gift set.
See below for my 3 minute Tub Demo Video.
Sleepy bomb reminds me of the Lush Uk ‘Sleeping Giant’ bath bomb. I think Sleepy bomb is a miniature version of it.
This Sleepy bomb has such a gorgeous periwinkle blue color! 😍
Sleepy is a quiet, slow melting kind of bomb, not the fast fizzing type.
It looks like some kind of melting blackberry dessert doesn’t it? 😊
There’s a bit of very dark blue almost black color inside the bath bomb that’s surprising.
There are multiple colors in here, violet, lilac, black, gold. Lots of bath art opportunities 😄
The gold is actually shimmery stuff. And the gold shimmer gets dispersed in the purple water and it’s just beautiful.
I’d rate this a 5 out of 5 rating.
These aren’t like the Lush halloween 2021 products which glow under UV light. These are glow in the dark. Here is what the stars and moon look when you turn off the lights.
Some folks were asking me what these moon and stars are made out of. Many folks thought they were a bath melt as i did, but they are made out of what feels like plastic. They don’t melt.
This above is ‘Twilight’ bath bomb sold in Lush stores. The ‘Sleepy’ bomb is the same scent. Both made with floral Ylang Ylang , Sweet creamy Tonka bean, and Bright herbal Lavendar. I asked the creator Alessandro and he stated that ‘Yes. They are the same scent’, just different names. Not complaining. I’d love to use both of these in a bath cocktail. Unfortunately there is only one in the Advent Calendar gift set.
Looking like Cinderella’s carriage, i love the new Strawberry scent. Its different than any other Lush strawberry scent. Its almost like they mixed lush rose jam and lush strawberry twin tub jelly. Those notes mixed together.
I don’t think i’ve ever seen any Lush bath bomb that was so intricately designed. And the color combination of that shade of pink with a beautiful dusting of gold.
After my bath i ordered 3 more of this bath bomb. Who knows. i might buy more right before they go away in January.
This is a slow melty foamed type of bath bomb. I love that type. Those usually have the best bath art.
I noticed that this has pink shimmer in the water as well as gold shimmer! It doesn’t stick to your skin which is good. It’s not the most glitter i’ve seen in a lush bath bomb but it’s not the least amount either.
The pink and yellow combine to make a deep orange colored water, with pink and gold sparkles.
See my 4 minute Up close sink demo where i wash my hands with it and you can see how much lather it has, how thick it is, etc.
Lush has created three new Christmas shower gels this year which are different than anything theyve made before. One of them is only available in the Christmas 2021 Advent Calendar Gift. There are 6-8 exclusive Christmas products only available in the Advent calendar.
Merry Christmas shower gel is quite a surprise to me. There are so many things about it that i like.
The color is a rich red, and it has gold sparkles in it. They settle at the bottom but i just shake it up to distribute the sparkke all throughout the shower gel.
Goodness. It looks like a ruby in the sun.
The scent is another surprise. It smells like a cherry. A chocolate covered cherry. It has a scent very similar to the Lush ‘Cherryish’ bodyscrub.
The ingredients are Aloe, Cocoa Absolute (chocolate), and Almond Oil. Its no wonder it smells like cherry.
The consistency is nice and thick.
I wish it was a bigger size. I love it.
It is pretty sweet. Some might find it too sweet. I dont find this to be the case. But i like things like Lush ‘Happy Blooming’ scent, which some find too sweet.
I pray that Lush will make this as an ‘in stores and online’ shower gel next Christmas.
Heres a video showing the consistency, lather, etc
The wiggly nature of the jelly makes a great octopus 😄
Firstly, i was pleasantly surprised that this smells so good.
I figured it would be a scent already seen in a jelly. But its a great scent of passion fruit, black currant, vanilla and orange.
It smells like a fruit candy, but not in a fake candyish way. Its a natural sweet, fruity fragrance.
This afternoon I was told by Alessandro the Creator of this Lush Monster Octopus jelly that it’s “Not the scent of Very Very Frightening shower gel, It’s a new fragrance. Similar to the old passion fruit lip balm, but it’s actually new.”
I love the color! Red and purple are my favorite colors. Its got No glitter for anyone who is curious.
Ive discovered that the Octopus tentacles make it easier to hold on to when using it.
You can use it at room temperature, cooled in the fridge on hot days, or even frozen.
Ive used the other Lush jellies by slicing into small pieces and putting about a tablespoon in a plastic kitchen seive and hold the seive under the stream of water coming out of the faucet. And down below at water level it stsrts to make a light foam.
But with this here Monster Octopus jelly I just held the whole dang thing in the faucet stream. 😄 And it worked nicely. Its also easier to hold the whole thing in the shower too to wash with it like a bar of soap.
i have two videos below showing what the Lush shower slimes are like close up.
Made for the first time this year (as a limited edition) for the Lush Christmas 2021 holiday.
There is an Ectoplasm shower gel that Lush made for Halloween a couple of years ago. I thought this was a wonderful new citrus scent for Lush. I asked for a perfume of this. And i must have not been the only one because soon thereafter Lush made an Ectoplasm liquid spray perfume and a body spray. Lush also made a bath bomb called Ectoplasm first. And a few years ago Lush made a solid puzzle bath oil called Tree-D (a play on the words 3D).
So now Lush is making an Ectoplasm Slime.
The scent is very citrussy. It’s a different scent than all the many other Lush citrus scents. I absolutely adore it. This has an addictive, tart effervescent scent of grapefruit and tangerine. It smells like fizzy soda. Moreso than Bubble or Celebrate imo. Ectoplasm isnt as sweet as those.
My husband has a little UV light (or black light) and he pointed it towards the container and WOW!
Ectoplasm slime is the fourth slime that Lush has made. I’m going to attach videos of the other slimes that i bought when Lush made them. All 3 slimes have been exclusive and one was sold as a limited edition for Halloween. Two of them came out at the same time; ‘Brr’ and ‘Bam’. One was minty and one had the same scent as Lush ‘Nevermind the Ballistics’.
Lush also made a black slime with the snow fairy scent, and a pink slime with the snow fairy scent.
So the Ectoplasm slime will be the same consistency of these other slimed in the videos, only it will be highlighter green/yellow and it is fluorescent under black light.
Mimosa in the moonlight. I knew this smell right away, I used to walk around these trees at my fathers house that had the fuzzy lavender colored flowers on it and the smell was heavenly. A sweet yet powdery flower the mimosa. It is lavender in color and fuzzy like a soft pink brush. Sometimes it smells like a light melon scent too. Mimosa is what the “Sakura” ballistic is scented with. This has no color in the water.
Lush 2006 description: Sakura is the japanese name for cherry blossom which aptly describes this pretty pale pink ballistic. Sakura is dappled with bursts of pale green that rise up to a bright pink and green layer of exfoliating sea salt at the top of the bomb
This has been one of Lush’s regular year round bath bombs since 2004 or so. And its still sold in stores today.
Its a fast dissolving fizzing type of bath bomb, not a slow, melty, foam typeof bomb. It has a lovely floral scent with blue and pink salt crystals on the top.
Time to scrub up? Pop into the shower and let the sea salt and prickly pear oil do the hard work, leaving you with softer skin. Listen out for crackle-ingly good shower ASMR with this natural exfoliator.
How to use: Wet your bar, rub between your hands and scrub using the pressure you like. Cut in two before you use or use whole bar for an indulgent pear-scented treat.
How to store: Keep somewhere cool and dry until ready. This is enough for two full body scrubs so pop in a dish between uses.
i was very excited to buy golden pear scrub. i love all the lush golden pear products. It’s made with real pear. And i cannot resist bath bombs that look like fruit. And a gold one? Yeah, i’m not made of wood people.
If you’ve tried the Golden Pear body spray or jelly, you know that these two have a very strong astringent alcohol-y note to it. This isn’t the case with the scrub. The scrub smells more like the Golden Pear soap, bath bomb and bubble bar.
After using my skin is smooth, soft and moisturized, while also smelling like a pear. It’s conditioning without being too much.
As you can see in my video my arm didnt have any noticeable glitter when i was done.
