Rangoli Dreams

5 out of 5 rating (WOW) See my TubbDemo & Scent description video below.

The first time i saw this, on a lush store instagram account, and i thought to myself ‘oh my God what a beautiful bomb.’

Lush description: Watch colours of orange, red and gold glide across your bath as you sink into skin softening waters with rice starch and coconut milk powder. Lie back and listen to the firework-like crackle whilst you inhale the scent of decadent floral rose and rich cardamom.

Rangoli is an art form originating in the Indian subcontinent on certain holidays, in which patterns are created on the floor or a tabletop using materials such as powdered lime stone, red ochre, dry rice flour, coloured sand, quartz powder, flower petals, and coloured rocks.

The smell is delicate, but GORGEOUS. Pure rose, cardamom (which i love), mandarin oil, almond essential oil, coconut powder, benzoin. It a delicate, softly sweet rose, a drop of fragrant and yummy cardamom and a half drop of almond essential oil.

As it starts foaming and dissolving a lovely striped pattern of gold, orange and red foam appeared. The popping candy is slow popping, it doesn’t distract from the poetic loveliness of this bomb.

I don’t know why i took it out to set it on the side of the tub and take a picture. But here’s that. 😄

This is a slow melter type of lush bomb. I love the gradient colors of foamy stripes in my photo below.

Golden glitter appears in the water when the bomb is all dissolved.

It’s altogether lovely, romantic, festive and yummy.

I need to buy 7.

My 3 minute Tub Demo Video

Jilted Elf body spray

3.5 out of 5 rating. See my video below where i (try) to describe it.

The scent of the jelly used to have honey, vodka and sweet Fig in it. But those aren’t in the ingredient list for the body spray.

It’s a challenging scent for me to to describe. It’s different than anything lush has made, except for the jelly. Quirky. It’s much better when it dries down. When it’s wet it’s more difficult for me to smell the notes. It’s got cinnamon, grapefruit, ginger and osmanthus.

Jilted Elf body spray becomes sweeter and more resinous once it dries down. It’s got light medium staying power, and not much throw.

This is such a very different scent. I love the Jilted Elf shower jelly. It’s like a cacophony of notes but somehow they work together!figs, ginger, cinnamon, grapefruit, vodka and honey. it’s both fruity and spicy. i’ll be buying the christmas body spray.

“Revel in this playful blend of sharp grapefruit to perk you up, and spicy cinnamon to get the blood pumping. Don’t leave this one behind this Christmas…”

Someone in my youtube comments described the scent well: Jalapeño Jelly Bellies

How to use:
Spritz all over the body, avoiding the underarm area, for an instant pick-me-up!”

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.

I had one together with a Lush Hippopotamus bath bomb.

Cinnamon Roll

5 out of 5 rating. see my 3 minute Tub Demo Video Below.

Cinnamon Roll

Lush made this Christmas bubble bar to smell and look like a cinnamon roll.

it smells like a bakery kind of cinnamon smell, and Not a red hot candies kind of cinnamon

This is new this year 2021. It’s a swirl of maroon and tan/gold color. I tried to show the gold glitter in this bar. It’s very very small glitter, and beautiful amidst the red color.

The swirls go all the way through the bar.

It’s a bigger than normal bubble bar, it’s the same bigger size as the Lush Blue Skies, Brightside, The Comforter, Snow Fairy. So i only used half for my bath.

The scent is quite fragrant. It’s a straight cinnamon smell. As i say in the video; it’s not cinnamon and orange , or cinnamon and mint, or cinnamon AND anything. It’s just straight cinnamon. I love it.

The gold glitter undulating in the red water 😍

The scent is nice even when i’m in the tub.

It makes loads of bubbles. it’s not particularly moisturizing. But it wasn’t drying to my skin either.

Alien bubble bar

4 out of 5 rating

Alien bubble bar. Made for the first time for Winter Holiday 2021.

The thing about the Alien bubble bar is that you have to use it before it starts fading in color. This is because the color of the water won’t be this lovely bright green color, instead it will be a dark yellow color.

Do you see the difference between this bar and the one above?

If the green color fades a bit the color of the water is going to be this:

i know some of you have told me you don’t like yellow or brown water so i thought i’d let y’all know.

When the bar hasnt faded the water is more green

the scent is so nice! it’s a citrus scent with a green note.

Prepare to be transported to another world with mountains of uplifting and zesty bubbles. New dimensions await as neon waters refresh and revive with uplifting bergamot and litsea cubeba.

How to use: 
Crumble a little or the whole thing under running water for juicy, fruity neon water and out of this world bubbles.

How to store:
Keep cool and dry until ready for UFO sightings and extra-terrestrial bathing.

Ingredients

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Cornstarch, Bergamot Oil, Litsea Cubeba Oil, Benzoin Resinoid, Glycerine, Water (Aqua), Tragacanth Gum, DRF Alcohol, *Citral, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 47005, Colour 77499, Colour 59040, Colour 42090

Sleepy hand cream

4.5 out of 5 rating

Vegan-See my demo video of this hand cream below

This hand Cream is made with the lovely lavender and tonka bean ‘Twilight’ scent.

It is made with various nut butters: pumpkin, peanut, cashew, and almond butters. As well as lavender oil and tonka.

I compared this to the Lush Twlight body lotion. This hand cream is definitely thicker. It’s not as creamy as the body lotion, it’s thick, almost like a paste. 

It smells just like the Twilight fragrance that we all know and love. 

I found it both odd and cool that this was in   silver squeeze tube. Different for Lush, but I like it. 


I’m a good fcandidatefor a hand cream as for many years now I’ve had such dry, weather beaten, wrinkly hands. 

Here’s my demo and review of it. I compare it to the Sleepy body lotion

Two Hearts Beating as One

two_hearts_bathing_as_one

This is a bath oil/bath melt. I have the perfume, shower gel, and other products in the “Two Hearts beating as One’ scent range.  But this is new. I’ve never seen this! Thus, I need ten!



I’ll be making youtube videos showing these two hearts beating as one scent. products in the next few days, so that i can try to describe the scent of this to you.

Here’s my demo of this gorgeous thing

Here below are some Lush/B Never Two Hearts Beating as One products that I’ve bought from Lush in the past when it was being sold at their boutique in London.

Note the same ingredients for scent are the same.

Lovestruck

See my demo video below 😄lovestruck_bubble_bar_spring_

Words can’t describe how much you love them, but emojis filled with lemon and geranium sure can.
If you heart bubbles, crumble under running water – you’re sure to Like the result. Warning: These refreshing citrusy suds may make you feel Emoji-nal!


I think Lovestruck smells like I Am a Radiant Being minus the Rose oil. Or like Rose Jam without the Rose. The Petitgrain brings an herbal note to the geranium and lemon. 

I’ve read that many do not like the smell.
