Lush Kitchen December 2021 Subscription Box

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.

Bar Humbug bubble bar

Berry Berry Christmas shower gel

Buck’s Fizz body conditioner

Chilly Bon Bomb Ive never tried this but i have the description ill add today.

Once a Year massage bar (will add today)

Perle De Sel bath bomb

Posh chocolate body wash

5 out of 5 star rating See my Demo Video below

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. 

  • VEGAN
  • 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.

Sleepy bath bomb

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.

Twilight

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.

These pics are from Lush Japan .

This bath bomb is made with the classic Lush ‘Cocktail’ scent, and then Lush adds some strawberry to that.

You Shall Go to the Ball

5 out of 5 see my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below

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.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, DRF Alcohol, Perfume, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Tonka Absolute, Soybean Flour, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Talc, Sodium Coco Sulfate, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Dipropylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Tin Oxide, Coumarin, Geraniol, *Limonene, Colour 47005:1, Colour 45410:1, Colour 45410:2, Colour 45410, Colour 15850:1, Colour 77491, Colour 17200

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.

New Lush Sugar Roll Facial Cleansers

4 out of 5 rating

Lush introduced some new products at their two superstores. including what Lush calls ‘Sugar Roll Cleansers’ for use on the face.

There are five kinds at the superstores as you can see in the picture at the top of this page. Lush uk decided to put these two of the five on their retail websites.

I got a couple from Lush USA since Lush uk couldn’t send this overseas in the heat. You can see the difference in the flowers between the Uk and the North American.ones.

You use them the same as the classic Lush Angels on Bare Skin facial cleanser.

Heres a video where i show you up close

Merry Christmas shower gel

5 out of 5 rating

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

Lord of Misrule body lotion

5 out of 5

Lush Uk made these exclusive lotions that they’ve never made before a couple of years ago around 2018.

The lord of Misrule lotions smells exactly like the shower gel and bath bomb. Made with Vanilla, Patchouli, and Black Pepper. Yummy.

I made a video showing it below. In the video i showed exactly how thick it is.

Here’s a scent family photo below. The lotion was made after i took this photo.

The Big Snow Fairy Roll

The Big Snow Fairy Roll is new. It’s a 1 kilo version of the Snow Fairy Roll. The ‘regular size’ Snow Fairy Roll is like two regular bubble bars and THIS Big SFR is even more huge.

Its the same size as this Big Comforter in my phoro below.

Monster Octopus jelly

See my 4 minute Description and Demo video Below

5 out of 5 rating

What a cute idea!

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.

Ingredients

Glycerine, Fresh Passion Fruit Infusion, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Carrageenan Extract, Perfume, Vanilla Absolute, Blackcurrant Absolute, Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Tagetes Oil, Water (Aqua), Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, *Benzyl Alcohol, *Citral, *Limonene, Colour 14700, Colour 17200

Lush Description:

This tentacled passion fruit scented jelly is not only fruity, bubbly and great fun to wash with but will dance with you too! Tango together in the tub and watch it wiggle, slide and jive as you wash.

How to use:
Wibble and wobble the whole jelly over your body and hair for a skin-softening wash. Bonus tip: Slide the jelly across the tub to watch the octopus dance. 

My Demo Video

Ectoplasm slime

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!

I took a photo of the Ectoplasm products
Ectoplasm body spray

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.

Heres my Demo video of Ectoplasm slime

The Lakes

4 out of 5 rating

This is a new exclusive bath bomb made for the August 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.

Lush New Exclusive bath bomb ‘The Lakes’.
Inspired by Taylor Swift.


This has a brand new scent. It’s an earthy, incensed, green scent made with osmanthus, oak moss, myrrh, and siberian fir needle.


It’s a slow, melty foamy bomb. It’s a mint green with flecks of pink in it and fine silver shimmer in it.

The scent stays on my skin long after i dry off and get dressed. It’s a subtlety earthy, sensual scent.

I like this bomb. It’s a different color for Lush and a different scent. It’s not a sweet scent but an earthy green one. Kind of like the classic lush green scents.


Here’s a link to my tub demo 😊

Sakura

3 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo video below

A photo of the Sakura i bought in 2021

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.

a picture of the Sakura i bought in 2005

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Sea Salt, Lemon Oil, Mimosa Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Gardenia Extract, FD&C Red No. 4, FD&C Blue No. 1

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.

There’s one or two more products in this scent family that arent in my group picture.

Squeak

4 out of 5 rating

See my demo video below

Made with big chunks of sea salt and lots of yummy tropical fruits such as mango, papaya, pineapple, lemon, and kiwi. Smells even more fruity and delicious than Lush I Love Juicy shampoo.

It’s a thick consistency, sort of like the consistency of Big liquid shampoo. I attached a vid to show the texture.

This is made for fine, limp hair and oily i normal hair. It’s not for my dry, thick, wavy hair.

After using it I can totally see how this woukd make thin hair thicker. It works well for that.

A little goes a long way. I have long hair. You have to make sure you rinse your hair well to get the small salt chunks out of your hair. It smells so good.

This was a surprise in the Lush July 2021 subscription box.

Have you tried it? Do you like it? Or not so much?

I wonder if Lush will have it in stores for the general public or if it will stay an exclusive one time thing.

Here is my video

Snow Fairy Lights

see my 3 minute tub demo video below

New for 2021

I like these style of ‘Amazeball’ bath bomb, which all have a hollowed out core with other tiny bath bombs inside, and a top.

Love Locket,. Fly Me To The Moon, Snow Fairy, Don’t Let the Bells End, and Holly Golightly are all this type of hollowed out bath bomb.

The time has come to be true to yourself. The Snow Fairy is here to shine a light on the courage, kindness, and confidence within you. 

How to use: 
Fill your bath, sprinkle the bath confetti, add the shell and/or stopper and enjoy a fabulously softening experience. With a new 3-in-1 design, perfect for your Secret Santa pick. 

How to store: 
Keep cool and dry before you are ready for a sweet-scented light show.

Did you know?
Over 25 years ago we invented the bath bomb. Our fizzing bicarb beauties provide an immersive aromatherapeutic bathtime like no other. All this and no packaging too…

Golden Pear body scrub

5 out of 5 – see my close up sink demo below 😊

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.

Ingredients

Fine Sea Salt, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Sodium Bicarbonate, Popping Candy, Cupuaçu Butter, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cream of Tartar, Pear Powder, Organic Jojoba Oil, Coarse Sea Salt, Cardamom Oil, Brazilian Orange Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Prickly Pear oil, Titanium Dioxide, Lauryl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tin Oxide, Silica, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Coumarin, *Limonene, Perfume, Colour 77492, Colour 77491

Sleepy Bear

3.5 out of 5 rating. Having the Lush Sleepy/Twilight scent. See my relaxing 3 minute Tub demo video below.

Tiny purple Lavender petals which Lush has coated in purple bath oil. I love when Lush is innovative.

I’m going to use it in the next couple of days and will record a Tub Demo Video of this Sleepy Bear so we can see what it does in the tub and what color it makes.

I would rate this a 3.5 out of 5 rating
It’s cute, it has the Sleepy lavender, ylang ylang and tonka bean scent.
It has oatmeal in it for soothing the skin.
It doesn’t color the water.
No glitter.
