This was one of my favorite bath bombs in 2003. To me it was so soft, feminine and pretty. It was a light, beautiful Rose scent, with some yummy orange oil and floral ylang ylang.
Lush made a few other products in this same scent; Eyeball bath bomb, Christmas Hedgehog bubble bar, Powder Puff Deo powder, Noriko soap, and the Valentine 2022 ‘Rose’ soap.
Lush sold this for a few years and then discontinued it in mid to late 2000’s to make room for new bath bomb.
Softy has pieces of rose petals in it. No glitter, no bath art, but it makes a pretty pale pink water. If you don’t like bits in your bath you can put it in a kitchen strainer and let the water pour on it so that just the bath bomb part is dissolved in your bath tub.
2001 Yuletide LT description: One of the best things to turn up on Lush’s doorstep in 2001 was Noriko from our Japanese factory with her boundless enthusiasm for creating new Lush products. She will be absolutely delighted and hugely embarrassed to find that her massive fruity soap, decorated with jellies (which she calls “jerries”) has been named after her. If you like your soap smooth, creamy, and bursting with flowers then for this one with its delicious scents of far eastern ylang ylang and calming lavender all mixed in with rice, organic tofu (soya bean curd), and sake, Japanese wine.
LT 2004 description: This handmade soap has coloured seaweed jellies on top, and the scent of orange, ylang ylang, lavender and rose. We relished the softening feeling on our skin of Noriko’s uniquely Japanese mix: rice, sake, tofu and agar seaweed.
2001 Review: The large truckle of the instore Noriko soap had “jellies” on the top of various colors. This is such a fresh and feminine scent. It reminds me of walking in a garden area of greenery and flowers, right after it rains. Noriko seems to be one of two soaps that lather more than all the other Lush soaps. The other being Milko in my opinion. You have to have this fresh because it’s a delicate scent.
Orange, Lavender, ylang ylang and rose makes this soap smell just like the “Softy” ballistic but more subtle and not rose.
2004 Review: It’s less fresh rain and more floral then the original. Lovely. Again, this needs to be tried fresh because it’s a light rain-like scent, otherwise it won’t smell like anything but soap. Other Lush products in this scent; Christmas Softy bath bomb, Hedgehog bubble bar, Powder Puff deo, Eyeball bath bomb, Valentines 2022 Rose soap.
Yummy. A highly underrated soap as far as conversations amongst Lushies. For a long time this was my favorite soap. I first bought some in my second Lush order a long time ago. And i like it just as much today 20 years later. It smells very different. Feminine and floral but lightly so, fruity from the figs and full of fig seeds. This could be good if your exfoliating or bad if you don’t like bits. Nice creamy lather. That scent though, its the perfect combination of sweet and floral.
LT 2004 Description: Figs and Leaves is a lovely, coffee brown, creamy soap scented with ylang ylang and orange blossom perfumes. Ylang ylang is one of the oils that helps to balance the skin’s oil production; orange blossom absolute is excellent for keeping the skin in good condition. The little specks in Figs and Leaves are the fig seeds from the decoction of nutritious, fresh, organic figs that form the base of this soap. Rub this all over your body to gently exfoliate your skin, make it feel smooth and smell luxuriously of figs and flowers (not leaves)…..
I rub some on my forearms every night before bed and it smells like Heaven.
“Relax into a creamy Sleepy-scented massage, with chamomile essence water and super absorbent marula oil for soft skin. Better sleep and less stress are both associated with a regular rub-down. Why not team with the rest of the Sleepy family?”
I’m in total love with this new bar. It has everything we like about the Sleepy/Twilight scent, but turned up. The bar really brings out its creamy, sweet quality. I love it when a Lush scent meets the perfect product for it, so that it becomes the best way that the scent can possibly smell. 👍🏼
How to use: Think of this as a solid massage oil, the butters and oils are designed to melt at body temperature so hold the bar between your hands to start melting before gliding over your skin, or someone else’s…
How to store: Keep this cool and dry, the ideal place is a Lush tin until you are ready to indulge in a home spa treatment, or your skin is in need of a boost of hydration.
Melt warning: This product is made with ingredients that allow it to soften around body temperature. During hot spells, it may melt. If you have any concerns please contact Customer Care.
Run a bath, drop in and escape into a shimmering sunset dream with calming floral scents. A perfectly opulent Mother’s Day gift.
How to store: Keep in a cool, dry place ready for a softening soak.
This is apparently made in the Lush ‘Wintergarden’ bath bomb scent, which is very floral.
The Lush description has something about this being the colors of a sunset. I can see why.
The bomb is beautiful with its multi floral pattern and it’s beautiful color of rose pink with gold all sround it.
For some reason this didn’t smell exactly like Wintergarden. I adore the scent of Wintergarden and even bought the exclusive Wintergarden body spray-but this bomb, especially when in the water smells a bit different to me. I could swear it has an almost jasmine-like scent but it must just be my nose.
As it starts to dissolve it lets out a stream of gold and orange foam.
The fragrance is a sexy floral. It’s made with jasmine, clary sage and gland gland. it’s floral but not sweet. very popular. Lush sells the sex bomb bath bomb as a regular year round item. It’s nice to have a bubble bar to go with the bath bomb in a bath.
The dark purple bath melt part made my skin SO soft, without being overly conditioning or greasy.
Initially the water became a pinkish red with just the bubble bar, and then when i added the boots part the water became a gorgeous purple.
5 out of 5 rating. See my video below where i apply it and review it.
Mark Constantine, owner of Lush Uk wanted to have a little fun so he decided to work with Helen Ambrosen on a new face and body mask.
They made it by adding a teaspoon of gorgeous moisturizer and then they added the ingredients to ‘Sleepy’, Lavender, Yang ylang and Tonka.
when they finalized the product he announced that they will let us have a crack at naming the product. So people submitted they’re names and a handful of people chose ‘Beauty Sleep’ and this is the name that won.
it’s a perfect name. the mask smells amazing! if you know what the gorgeous moisturizer smells like you can imagine that plus sleepy.
instructions recommend slathering it on your face and your arms, neck, chest, back, stomach and then let it stay on your skin for 10-20 minutes while you’re in the tub or in the shower. Then after that time just rinse it off.
it’s got ground adult beans for exfoliating and it’s LOADED with many moisturizing ingredients.
it’s a beautiful pinkish lavender color.
“Aluxurious clay face mask, which includes a spoonful of our most decadent moisturiser, Gorgeous, for a boost of hydration. The perfect step in your evening skincare routine, to help you #getyourbeautysleep.
“The combination of lavender and neroli is even more soothing than I anticipated. I noticed a significant improvement in my stress level within minutes. Skin feels soft and smooth afterwards. – bethanyjoyhall
“From its lavender and neroli scent that calms the mind…to its freshly ground Aduki beans, fresh coconut, honey, kaolin, and talc which calm and soothe the skin-this face mask is a 10/10 for me! It left my skin feeling calm, moisturized, and toned all at once.” – LaredoLushies

How to use Run a warm bath, put on some relaxing music and apply this beautiful face mask to clean skin. Sit back and relax. Inhale the neroli and let the valerian and lemon verbena get to work. Once you’re feeling relaxed and ready for bed, rinse away with warm water.
Lo and Behold when those of us who bought the Lush Kitchen subscription box from Lush Uk opened up our June boxes we found a surprise: a container of Beauty Sleep face and body mask. Yay!
As far as Lush masks go i really like this one. it made my skin feel cleansed and moisturized and it smelled gorgeous. Using it before bed was a good idea since the ingredients in ‘Sleepy’ (twilight) are conducive to sleep.

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.
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 is one of six exclusive shower gels that Lush.co.uk made ‘just because’ from community favorite bath bombs
Honestly, This is the shower gel i was the least excited about. Ive seen sex bomb in one form or another for 17 years. *yawn*
However, i was in for a surprise when i used this for the first time.
Firstly, it has this quite unexpected pink shimmer to it. SO pretty. The bath bomb that this shower gel was named after doesnt have any glitter nor shimmer so this was a pleasant surprise. its not glitter like in Intergalactic shower gel, this is *shimmer*, more subtle than glitter. Beautiful. I just keep gazing at it in the light.
Secondly, the scent isn’t as complex as rhe bsth bomb scent. That said-this is what i could call a classically ‘pretty’ scent. Its feminine and floral. Having rose, and jasmine florals. The herbaceousness of the sage is kind of missing, and the ylang ylang isnt coming across at all to me but….i dont care because this floral shower gel scent has great ‘throw’. Its not a sweet scent. Just floral.
And more importantly two hours after my shower im getting compliments about how i smell at the grocery store, and from my husband. He said it smells sexy.
5 out of 5 rating See my tub demo video i made for you below.
This is a new scent Lush says.
Just the look of thus bubble bar drew me in. It looks like a cartoon. And im loving the fushia pink and blue colors.
Its scent is made with bergamot, ylang ylang, cedarwood, and benzoin. So its fruity, woody and floral. Altogether this makes a fruity/sexy/pretty perfume kind of scent. Its not too sweet. And its not too woody. Its mostly perfume-y in the best way.
I used the whole bar for my tub demo and review, however as i state in my video a person coukd easily use half of this bar and have enough bubbles for one bath. So while one can get two baths out of it, id rather use the whole thing the way it was made to use it. 🙂
3.5 out of 5 rating. See my demo and review video below.
This has its own new scent which is made with almond essential oil, ylang ylang flower oil, orange oil, clove bud oil, and mashed banana. Along with shea butter and other skin moisturizing goodies to add the proper amount of slip for a massage.
I am living for the various fruit shaped products that Lush have been making and selling exclusively since Sept 2018
The Big Banana has a nice smell. It doesnt smell like banana runts candy. Its a light, more natural banana scent.
The consistency is oily.
Its not like sympathy for the skin in scent which is more earthy imo.
here is my video i recorded for you which helps explain the scent and shows the consistency.

this is a lighter purple, creamier version of previous years ‘Twilight’ shower gel. Lush had to change the name.
Sleepy gel has added oat milk which helps to make it a more opaque appearance.
There is no sparkle in this shower gel.
it smells exactly like the Twilight i know and love. it has the same lavender oil, ylang ylang and tonka base.
Again this year lush has made a naked or solid containerless version of Sleepy shower gel.
i enjoy the different look to this shower gel.
oat milk helps soothe itchy raw or sore skin.
Sleep, drift to sleep,
Sweet tonka counts the sheep,
Lavender shakes the dreamland tree,
And from it fall sweet dreams for thee.
After a long day, relax into a soothing, softening wash of oat milk and carrageenan extract. If sleep eludes you, the sheep keep escaping or sweet dreams are feeling distant, shower with calming lavender flower infusion and lavender oil to ensure you sleep tight. Ylang ylang oil washes away worries and allows you to sink into bedtime, or start your day, with serenity.
Here is a short video i recorded close up sink demo of sleepy shower gel.
I have two Eyeball bath bombs. see my recorded tub demo below
One i got from a Lush store. And one i got from Lush Uk mail order site lush.co.uk
Ive had the one i got from a Lush store in the uk on Sept 22 for two weeks. To me it didnt smell that exciting. In fact, it almost smelled sort of blah with maybe some lavender.
However, im SO glad i decided to order another one from mail order. Because THAT one was an entirely different story scent-wise.
Oh my GOD the gorgeousness of this pretty and yummy scent….this smells so familiar.
I looked it up on thesite to see look at the ingredients. As i read the ingredients on the site it dawned on me….this Eyeball bath bomb has the Lush SOFTY bath bomb scent!!!! YES. Thank you so much Lush.
The irony of this gorey eyeball having the pretty ‘Softy’ scent is wonderful. Lush also made a bubnle bar one Christmas called Hedgehog, with that same softy scent.
This scent is made with orange oil, lavender, ylang ylang and rose. Basically everything that is good-put together in one bomb.
Its both ‘pretty’ and ‘yummy’. I can smell the ylang ylang and the rose primarily, which is a GORGEOUS combination in itself. But then comes the wafting of the orange oil note to give it that ‘Lushious, sweet, fruit’ note. Then, comes the bright herbal pop of lavender to lift the whole combination up.
Heavenly. One must absolutely have a fresh one from mail order, otherwise youre in danger of getting a blah one, or God forbid, the even more rare one that smells like furniture cleaner, which i have had in the past as well.
A good, very fresh one is a 5 out of 5 rating.
An older one thats been sitting in the store for some days can be a 2 out of 5.
I pray you get a great one folks, its heavenly.
Here is a tub demo video i recorded for you.
These products below were made in the same blend, including Powder Puff Deo which isn’t shown below.I need to find my pics of it.
