Strawberry Heart Shower Jelly from Lush

The Strawberry Heart Shower Jelly is brand new to Lush and a part of the 2022, Valentine’s Day line. Given that it is a Valentine’s Day product you’d expect the Strawberry Heart shower jelly to be the lovey-dovey, anatomically inaccurate heart-shape. Lush have however shaken things up a bit by making the shower jelly the anatomically ACCURATE shape, it’s shaped just like a real life human heart, (see photo below).

The Strawberry Heart shower jelly contains fresh strawberry juice, jasmine absolute and the following essential oils: Sicilian lemon, lime and ho wood. Its scent is a new one from Lush; It reminds me of the super-sour, sugary strawberry lace sweets, positively delicious!

As soon as you take off the Strawberry Heart shower jellies lid, you are greeted with its mouth-watering fragrance, it’s a very, very strong, juicy strawberry scent that quickly takes over the room it is in and even more so when you’re in a hot and steamy shower with it.

There is no right or wrong way to use a shower jelly, I prefer to use mine in the same way as you would a bar of soap, whole. Some people however chop their shower jellies up using a few pieces at a time – a good method if you’re sharing it with someone else.

If you do keep it whole, the Strawberry Heart shower jelly is just the right size to fit snuggly in your hand. It is a lot easier to keep a hold of in the shower being this size too. Once you’ve used it simply rinse it off and then pop it back into the pot until you next want to use it.

The special shaped shower jellies like Strawberry Heart often fall apart a lot quicker than the standard shaped ones; The Strawberry Heart shower jelly has however lasted me through 5 showers so far, making it incredibly cost effective, I can see myself getting many more showers out of it yet!

The Strawberry Heart shower jelly lathers up quickly and creates a super creamy foam. A little goes a long way and glides over my skin effortlessly. As I stated earlier its scent is bold straight from the pot, but it really, really comes to life when you are using it in the shower. For such a small shower jelly it really does have a lot of stamina, scent and robusticity wise.

Normally shower jellies can be quite drying on my skin, the Strawberry Heart shower jelly however leaves my skin soft, clean, fresh, and appearing brighter. It isn’t hugely moisturising but also doesn’t leave me desperate to coat myself in body lotion once I am out of the shower.

Overall, I am really impressed with the Strawberry Heart shower jelly, it’s a fantastic addition to this year’s Valentine’s Day line and I can see it selling well.

Unicorn Poop Bath Bomb from Lush

The Unicorn Poop Bath Bomb first became available in the UK at the end of November 2021. If you know me, you’ll know I’m absolutely obsessed with anything to do with unicorns, saying I was excited to try the Unicorn Poop bath bomb would be an understatement indeed.

Much like the Follow the Rabbit and Snowman Dreaming bath bombs, Unicorn Poop is full of a rainbow of colours. It is shaped like the poo emoji with pink, yellow, purple and blue swirls in its twisted top. Just looking at it shows you exactly how the Unicorn Poop bath bomb got its name.

The Unicorn Poop bath bomb doesn’t share its scent with the Unicorn Horn bubble bar or the Unicorn lip scrub – it actually belongs to the Cocktail scent family. The Cocktail scent is very similar to the scent found in the Fizzbanger bath bomb BUT not nearly as fruity, its scent is a lot sharper and has musky elements too.

I’d go as far as to say that the Unicorn Poop’s scent, out of all of the scents Lush have created over the years is one of the most mature to date. I therefore find it a puzzling scent choice considering that the bath bomb is literally named after unicorn poo, something that would appeal more to children than senior citizens.

It contains calamine powder, jasmine absolute and the following essential oils – bergamot, davana and ylang ylang.

I’m always honest in my reviews and I hate to start 2022 with a wishy-washy review but the Unicorn Poop bath bomb wasn’t as good in the bath as I had imagined it to be.

Upon hitting the water the Unicorn Poop bath bomb has a little eruption of pink and white foam. Purple foam then begins to trickle out of it too. As the Unicorn Poop bath bomb dances around in your bath water more colours come out of it, although only small amounts.

The bath art side of this bath bomb isn’t nearly as good as I’d had hoped a ‘rainbow bath bomb’ like this to be. It bubbles away until it fully dissolves leaving you with pearly pink bath water.

The Unicorn Poop bath bomb takes approximately 15 minutes to fully dissolve, for such a slow fizzing bath bomb I really did expect more bath art, I’m wondering if the pastel tones of the colours is what dampens the bath art down somewhat.

Once the Unicorn Poop bath bomb has fully dissolved the water is silky smooth. I didn’t find the water very moisturising but it didn’t dry out my skin at all.

Sadly, the Unicorn Poop bath bomb isn’t one I’d get again. It was perfectly marketed to me as a unicorn-mad Lush fan but in my opinion the scent just didn’t fit within the theme of it at all. I’d have also liked to have seen more bath art from it considering its name and how colourful it is.

Lush have recently released some amazing rainbow coloured bath bombs that are so much better than Unicorn Poop. It’s very rare for me to dislike a bath bomb but Unicorn Poop didn’t captivate me in the same way as most other Lush bath bombs do.

White Noise Bath Bomb from Lush

You may or may not have seen that ASOS have started to sell Lush-bundle-giftsets. I’m not 100% sure as to why Lush have decided to partner with them from a sales angle but apart from the bath bomb that was included in June 2021’s Lush Kitchen Subscription box, Lush’s White Noise Bath Bomb is exclusive to and only available to purchase from ASOS in a giftset-bundle which also includes the best-selling Intergalactic bath bomb.

You’ll recognise the scent of the White Noise bath bomb if you have previously used the now discontinued, Kitsune bath bomb. Containing cedarwood, Sicilian red mandarin, patchouli, and benzoin resinoid oils the White Noise bath bomb has many great qualities. It’s a product that is packed full of warmth and energy, I’d describe it as warmer versions of the Avobath or Dragon’s Egg bath bombs.

It seems to have the same citrus-punch of those bath bombs but with a much warmer fragrance-layer because of the patchouli and benzoin resinoid oils.

White Noises interesting mix of ingredients makes the bath bomb a great bathing-partner to have if you are like me and live with chronic pain. The benzoin resinoid mixed with the patchouli oil stimulates blood flow which helps with the soothing of your muscles, this in turn helps you to wind down by lulling you into a state of pure relaxation, all you have to do is lay back and simply enjoy your bath!

The White Noise bath bomb has quite the crazy design, Lush have clearly had a lot of fun creating the mould for this product with their 3D printer, it strangely looks just how I’d picture White Noise if it was a solid entity; Decorated with sharp abstract shapes and patches of cool, grey-washed colours, it’s eye-catching to say the least.

Once in the water the White Noise bath bomb creates an explosion of cool-toned-colours. Light blue, white, silver, grey and minty green bath art shoots out of the bath bomb as it speedboats around the water’s surface shimmering.

It doesn’t take long for the White Noise bath bomb to fully dissolve but the bath art it creates is magnificent, my photos in this post do the bath bomb no justice at all. The water left behind is a grey-tinted minty-green. One thing I really noticed about White Noise is just how much grey is in it. Yet, it isn’t at all dull.

Overall I am really impressed with the White Noise bath bomb, it’s pretty and its scent is incredibly energising as well as warm even though its colouring is cool. It really does tease your senses. I can’t wait to see what bath bomb Lush creates for us next!

Twilight Bubble Bar from Lush

 

The Twilight Bubble Bar was on the very top of my list when Lush UK did their latest bubble bar drop. Sharing its scent with the first Lush bath bomb I ever tried, Twilight, I couldn’t help but use it first.

Just looking at the Twilight bubble bar makes me want to book a sunny holiday, created with 3 tropical-sunset-colours jammed together and decorated with a seaweed palm tree, it simply demands to be used in a fancy bath tub somewhere exotic…

Sadly due to the current restrictions of Covid-19 this isn’t possible BUT a 30 minute bath with this little beauty brings you pretty close to a level of relaxation you can normally only achieve by spending a lazy day on a sun lounger, bestselling book in one hand and an ice cold drink in the other…

This dreamy bubble bar contains benzoin resinoid, tonka-absolute and both lavender and ylang ylang oils making it the perfect bubble bar to reach for to help you wind down after a long day.

Size wise, the Twilight bubble bar is quite small BUT don’t let that put you off of trying it, I got 2 ridiculously-bubbly bubble baths out of just one Twilight bubble bar. I think if I wasn’t so greedy I could have easily spread it out over 3 (possibly 4 at a push) baths, it is excellent value for money.

While you don’t have to use the seaweed-palm-tree part of this bubble bar, sticking it in the water with you does add a slight softness to the water, much like the Big Blue bath bomb. The warmth of the water breaks down the seaweed adding a slight silkiness to the bath water, while there’s not enough to make a huge difference it is worth trying.

With the bubble bar being 3 different colours, the colour of the water underneath the blanket of bubbles differs depending on how much and what parts of the bubble bars you use. A good mix of all 3 colours (see above photo) will give you sunset-pink water.

Bubbles come quick and fast when the Twilight bubble bar is held under a running tap, there’s nothing like laying back surrounded by tonka-absolute and lavender scented bubbles. Yes, we’ve had what seems like a million Lush products that share this bubble bars scent now BUT I don’t think I’ll ever grow bored of Twilight.

I have my fingers crossed that soon we will be able to actually use this bubble bar somewhere exotic and not just have to use our imagination, it’s a true luxury Lush product that I have throughly enjoyed using and reviewing! 😊

Rose Gold Bath Bomb from Lush

The Rose Gold Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited edition product from Lush’s 2021 Mother’s Day collection. The care and attention to detail that Lush have put in to designing this bath bomb blows me away, it’s a piece of art, so much so that it took all of my willpower to put it in to my bath water.

I really, really didn’t want to see it slowly disappear only to go down the drain never to be seen again…

As you can see from the above and below photos, the Rose Gold bath bomb is incredibly detailed, Lush really went to town with the 3d printer when creating the mould for this bath bomb.

The more I stare at the Rose Gold bath bomb, the more type of flowers that seem to appear in the bath bombs design, it looks like the Lush gods carved it with unicorn horns! 😉 I see daisies, roses, ivy… The list goes on and on.

The Rose Gold bath bomb shares its scent with the Winter Garden bath bomb from 2020’s Winter line. Containing benzoin resinoid, ylang ylang and bergamot oil its scent is a rich yet musky, floral blend.

The Rose Gold bath bomb is as its name suggests, a rose gold colour decorated with a light sprinkling of natural golden shimmer.

As soon as the Rose Gold bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of dark pink. I wasn’t expecting much bath art from the Rose Gold bath bomb as Lush had put in so much effort with its exterior design BUT after a few minutes, orange and pink swirls began to fizzle out of it. Leaving pretty patterns across the water surface.

Bath art wise, the Rose Gold bath bomb is incredible. My photos in this post do it no justice at all. If you’ve used the Christmas Sweater bath bomb it’s just as spectacular as that in the water.

Once the Rose Gold bath bomb has fully dissolved you’re left with bright orange, silky-soft bath water.

The musky floral fragrance lasts right up until the last drop of water goes down your plug hole. It also stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day too. I normally find the more floral-based-ingredients that bath bombs have, the dryer they are on your skin. The Rose Gold bath bomb however left my skin perfectly hydrated and appearing and feeling much brighter.

Overall I really enjoyed getting to know the Rose Gold bath bomb, the clear winning factor of it is definitely its design, I don’t think Lush have ever created a more intricate, visually pleasing bath bomb!

Eggy Wegg Bath Bomb from Lush

 

The Eggy Wegg Bath Bomb first featured in 2021’s Easter line, with it being my favourite colour, it was the very first product within the line that caught my eye. Bright pink with 3 fried eggs on its top-half as decoration, it’s hard to not be drawn to it.

Eggy Wegg is similar in design to the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb, instead of 3 clouds the Eggy Wegg bath bomb has its 3 fried eggs. Others have also compared Eggy Wegg to the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb, while both have 3 unique decorations on its top half, unlike Eggy Wegg’s fried eggs, the golden stars in Shoot for the Stars are mini bath melts.

I don’t like the comparison of Eggy Wegg and the aforementioned Shoot for the Stars bath bomb, I find the added bath melts in a bath bomb really do make for a completely different bathing experience. If you’re like me and don’t always enjoy super hydrating baths, then Eggy Wegg is well worth a try.

The Eggy Wegg bath bomb includes ingredients that I wouldn’t ever imagine working together, strangely they do however work. Sicilian lemon and spearmint oil blend together to give Eggy Wegg a fragrance a bit like a big bag of pick-and-mix sweets.

Its scent has a tropical-fruit twang and also a generous helping of invigorating spearmint. Both scents round each other off, it’s a unique scent but one I’d love to see in other product formats in the future.

As soon as the Eggy Wegg bath bomb comes in to contact with the bath water you are greeted with a hiss of hot pink, fizzing bubbles. It doesn’t take long for the beautiful bath art to begin spilling out of the bath bomb, charging around your bath tub.

Pink, yellow and white swirls begin to dance their way around the water surface, creating the most beautiful swirling bath art. The photos I have included in this review do the Eggy Wegg bath bomb no justice at all.

The yellow and pink patterns created by Eggy Wegg clash perfectly, if you’re familiar with the Angels Delight bath bomb, expect the same type of stand-out bright yellow and warm pink bath art.

Once the Eggy Wegg bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright pinky-orange tinted water. The water is silky-smooth and leaves your skin appearing and feeling softer and brighter.

For a bath bomb with a mix of such dominantly scented ingredients (lemon and spearmint) you’d expect its fragrance to be really strong on your skin, it is however a very subtle fragrance, not at all in-your-face. I could see the fragrance working very well in a body lotion format.

Overall I am very much in love with the Eggy Wegg bath bomb, it didn’t smell how I imagined an Easter product to smell but I think that’s what has made it so perfect. I’ll be very sad if this bath bomb doesn’t come back next Easter.

Avocado Ice Cream Fresh Face Mask from Lush

I managed to get a hold of a pot of the Avocado Ice Cream Fresh Face Mask when it was available in April 2021’s Fresh Subscription Box. Previous to this, the fresh face mask had only been available in Lush’s Fresh Shop and Spa in Paris and I believe for a very short while from my favourite Lush store in the world, Lush Liverpool.

Rumour has it that it is soon to become a main line product throughout the UK so I thought it was wise to get my review on it uploaded!

The Avocado Ice Cream fresh face mask has a short and very simple list of ingredients; Fresh avocado, soya yoghurt, kaolin, fresh lemon juice and bergamot oil. It has a refreshingly light, lemony fragrance that is perfect for waking up dull, tired skin.

Consistency wise, the Avocado Ice Cream fresh face mask reminds me a little of hummus. A small amount goes a very long way and it glides on your face with ease.

With Lush’s fresh face masks I always recommend applying them with a tea spoon or face-mask-brush/spatula as this stops any bacteria on your fingers getting into your pot of face-mask-goodness. Using this application technique allows your fresh face mask to stay fresh for longer. Sometimes lasting well after their use-by-date.

All of Lush’s fresh face masks are also meant to be stored in the fridge, some are better left out for a while before applying but I find that with Avocado Ice Cream it is best applied straight out of the fridge. The combination of its coolness alongside the cooling effects of the avocado and soya yoghurt are perfect for this time of year as the weather gets warmer.

What I really liked about the Avocado Ice Cream fresh face mask was how easily it washes off of your face too. I love how effortless using  it is, it wipes off just as easily as it glides on and my skin LOVES it. Just 10 minutes of wearing this face mask leaves my face appearing brighter and feeling soft and smooth.

With such a small amount of this face mask going such a long way I don’t think it’s possible to use it all by the date on use-by sticker. As mentioned above, I strongly recommend using a face-mask-brush/spatula to apply it to make it stand the test of time and to get the most out of it.

Overall I am really impressed with the Avocado Ice Cream fresh face mask, if it doesn’t become mainline Lush are definitely making a mistake!

Very Very Frightening Shower Gel from Lush


The Very Very Frightening Shower Gel is a brand new product created for Lush’s 2020 Halloween line. If you’re a fan of the Space Girl bath bomb you’ll be pleased to hear that the Very Very Frightening shower gel has a very similar scent. It’s practically the same, although I feel Very Very Frightening is a little zingier than the aforementioned bath bomb.

To save both myself and you, the reader, I am now going to refer to the Very Very Frightening shower gel as just VVF, I’ve got to the point where I have written the word ‘very’ in-my-blogs-notebook so many times that it doesn’t even look like a real word anymore. 😂

The VVF shower gel contains, grapefruit, bergamot, fresh lemon juice & Fig juice. For those of you who haven’t experienced the Space Girl scent before, both Space Girl and VVF’s scent is a gentle, fruity, sherbet-sweet blend that I can’t get enough of.


VVF’s gentle, sherbet-sweet scent is no trick and all treat! sharing a hot and steamy shower with it will banish away all cobwebs and bad moods. A quick wash with VVF shower gel will put a spring in your step, awaken all of your senses, leaving you feeling clean, uplifted and refreshed.

Appearance wise, the VVF’s shower gel is a very similar yellow to the Nana shower gel and Yuzu & Cocoa shower cream. As for its consistency, VVF is a lot closer to a shower gel than the aforementioned Nana; I find Nana more like a shower slime so I was super pleased to find out that the VVF shower gel was closer to how I think a shower gel should look and feel.

A little amount of VVF goes a very long way. Just a 10p sized blob is more than enough to do your whole body. Even when you use a lot, the VVF doesn’t foam up very much which I know will annoy some people. I would however like to point out that although it doesn’t foam up very much, using it does leave me feeling clean, which really is just what you want out of a shower gel!

Once out of the shower my skin appears and feels clean and brighter. I didn’t find VVF shower gel to be particularly moisturising however it didn’t leave me desperate to use a body lotion after either.

After using VVF its scent stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day. The scent seems to grow on me the more I use it. I’ve gone from liking it to LOVING it. It’s a shower gel that should have been made by Lush a long time ago. I’d love to see even more products come out with the Space Girl scent soon, I feel that a body spray in particular would fly off the shelves. Hint, hint, Lush! 😉
