There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List Bath Bomb from Lush

I have been super-excited to review the, There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List Bath Bomb as it really reminds me of Lush’s phenomenal 2016 Christmas line.

2016 was such an exciting year for Lush as we had the first, legendary Lush-creative-showcase. It is one of my (if not my) fondest memories of Lush and I still get butterflies thinking about what an amazing experience it was.

The There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List bath bomb wasn’t a product available back then so you’re probably confused as to why I am even mentioning it BUT this bath bomb just seems to capture the same feelings of excitement in me.

I am a self-confessed Christmas-Scrooge so for me to be this excited about a product that is an in-your-face Christmas product is a huge deal indeed…

You’ve probably noticed the, There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List bath bomb’s long name, to make it easier for you to read this review (and me to write this review) I will furthermore refer to it as the ‘There’s Room bath bomb’.

At the time of writing this review, the There’s Room bath bomb has only ever been available exclusively to those who purchased the December 2022, Lush-Kitchen-Subscription-box.

Whether it will come back as an actual product you can buy individually for Winter 2023 is a question that can only be answered by Lush. I however have my fingers crossed that it does make a reappearance at some point!

The There’s Room bath bomb contains some of the following ingredients: Rose oil, violet leaf absolute, sandalwood oil, and maple syrup and shares its scent with the Confetti perfume.

The scent is best described as heavily-violet, sweet and floral. I feel as if it is a mix of the Rose Jam shower gel’s scent and the Ultraviolet bubble bar. It’s floral but not in an old-lady way, it’s a fun scent that uplifts yet calms you down.

As you can see from the first and 2nd photos I have included in this review, the There’s Room bath bomb is a very clever design. I had to also include a side-shot of this bath bomb just to show you all how detailed it really is. Shaped as a yellow elf’s head, it has a pointed green elf-hat, pointed yellow elf-ears and bright pink elf-cheeks.

It’s one of the cutest bath bombs Lush have ever made, I imagine pressing this bath bomb is quite timely and that’s why it was only released as a Lush Kitchen exclusive.

As soon as the, There’s Room bath bomb comes in to contact with the bath water you are greeted with a soft hiss of yellow and green bubbles. As the bath bomb slowly dissolves the water gets to the bath bombs pink elf-cheeks and then pink bubbles start to spill out of the bath bomb too.

The bath art it creates reminds me of the bath art created by the 2021 version of the Lord of Misrule bath bomb albeit slightly different colouring. Some of the pictures I took of it also remind me of the Mermaid bath bomb although, There’s Room is much more colourful.

The There’s Room bath bomb takes a good 10-12 minutes to fully dissolve.

It doesn’t take long for the pink cheeks to disappear leaving you with just yellow and green bath-art-bubbles. Once all of the bath bomb has gone you are left with bright green, silky soft bath water.

The water is super-hydrating on your skin and once you’re out of the bath, the scent stays on your skin for the rest of the day. I could still smell it on my skin the next morning too.

As I said earlier, the scent of this bath bomb is quite a heavy one. Violet leaf is a powerful ingredient in perfume, and it works so well in the bath bomb format mixed with rose and sandalwood oil.

I can see this scent being made into several more different product formats in the future. As for my overall thoughts on the There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice list bath bomb, I loved it. I have my fingers crossed that Lush find a way to bring it out as a part of the 2023 Christmas line so that everyone can get a chance to try it, it’s fabulous!

Happy Holidays Shower Gel from Lush

The Happy Holidays Shower Gel was an exclusive item that was a part of Lush Kitchen’s December 2022 subscription box. Previous to this, it had been released before but under a different name, the Merry Christmas shower gel.

Back when it was the Merry Christmas shower gel, it had only been available in the 2021 advent calendar and only in a measly 100g bottle.

Having a fresh 250g bottle of it (albeit with a different name) has made me very happy indeed.

You’ll recognise the Happy Holidays shower gels scent from the discontinued, Valentine’s Day product the Cherryish body scrub.

Cherryish happens to be my most favourite of all of Lush’s body scrubs as it exfoliates and buffs my skin so well. I was therefore very excited to get another bottle of the shower gel scent-equivalent.

The Happy Holidays shower gel is jam-packed with the prettiest golden shimmer, getting a decent photo of it was ridiculously difficult, the photos included in this review do it no justice at all. You really must see it for yourself to truly appreciate it, it’s so SPARKLY!

To look at, the Happy Holidays shower gel is quite similar to the Hot Toddy shower gel.

It is however a lot brighter shimmer wise and a little more transparent.

Consistency wise, the Happy Holidays shower gel is thick but still very easy to get out of the bottle.

The Happy Holidays shower gel contains aloe vera, agave syrup, cocoa absolute, cinnamon, and almond essential oil. Its scent is a subtle cherry fragrance with a slight hint of chocolate and spice.

Its scent is both warm and tangy like a sweet and fruity jam. It lathers up in your hands easily and the chocolate element within it really comes through when mixed with the hot water and steam of the shower.

Something I often find with Lush shower gels is that less-is-more when it comes down to using them and this is the case for Happy Holidays, a little goes a very, very long way!

Comparing both the Cherryish body scrub and Happy Holidays shower gel scent wise, the shower gel is a lot stronger yet still very subtle. As I said earlier, the smallest amount of it goes a very long way. This is a huge bonus when you consider how rare the shower gel is at the time of writing this review.

Happy Holidays scent can still be detected on your skin once you’re out of the shower. It also leaves your skin appearing brighter, as well as softening it too; It’s perfect to use in the cold Winter months.

I would love to see bottles of the Happy Holidays shower gel become a main line Winter product next year and I’d also like more Cherryish scented products too!

Mean Green Mother from Outerspace Bubble Bar from Lush

The Mean Green Mother from Outerspace Bubble Bar was an exclusive product included in the October 2022’s Lush Kitchen subscription box. Inspired by the man-eating plant in the Little Shop of Horrors, the Mean Green Mother from Outerspace bubble bar fits right into the boxes chilling-Halloween-theme.

Going forward, I am now going to refer to the Mean Green Mother from Outerspace bubble bar as just Mean Green to save us both sometime. I do wonder if Lush give their products long names to not only make them stand out but to get on our nerves a little bit too. 😉

The Mean Green bubble bar is approximately 100g, for comparison purposes the bestselling Brightside bubble bar is 200g – twice its size. Yes, the Mean Green bubble bar may be on the smaller side but if I have learnt anything from the hundreds of Lush bubble bars that I have tried before now, size doesn’t dictate a bubble bars true bubble-potential…

The Mean Green bubble bar contains the following essential oils: lime, olibanum resinoid and neroli. It shares its scent with the Calacas shower gelMonsters’ Ball bath bomb and from this year’s Halloween line (2022) the Big Foot bath bomb.

Lush’s Calacas scent family is one of my all-time favourites, I can never get enough of it. Its lime led scent is both uplifting and zingy. Lush have combined oil of lime, neroli and olibanum to make the perfect pick-me-up scent. Bathing in a Mean Green bath will reinvigorate your mind, body and soul.

Some describe the Calacas scent as being very similar to the sweets, fruit pastilles. I adore its scent, Lush have yet to use it in a product I haven’t loved!

To use the Mean Green bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a small sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use Lush’s single use bubble bars. This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

One of my favourite things about Lush’s bubble bars is that unlike their bath bombs, bubble bars can be spread out over several baths.

I got 2 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Mean Green bubble bar without it hindering the quality of it at all. HOWEVER, I think I could have easily spread the bubble bar out over 3 baths. It may be a small bubble bar but a little amount of it certainly goes a very long way!

Once the bubble bar pieces are put under the running tap, it doesn’t take very long at all for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form. Underneath the blanket of bubbles the water turns a glorious bright green.

A Mean Green bubble bath leaves your skin feeling as soft as silk. After getting out of the bath its beautiful lime and neroli fragrance also lasts on your skin for the rest of the day. There’s no need to lotion up once you’re out of the bath either as it leaves your skin super-hydrated.

Overall, I am clearly head over heels in love with the Mean Green Mother from Outerspace bubble bar. I am a little confused as to why it didn’t make it into the actual Halloween range this year, it’s a crime that it was only available in the Lush Kitchen Subscription Box!

Cobweb Bath Bomb from Lush

The main reason that I subscribe to the Lush Kitchen’s monthly subscription box is because sometimes it makes it possible for customers to get their hands on long-gone, discontinued products from Lush’s past.

I was therefore over the moon to see that the Cobweb Bath Bomb had made it into the Lush Kitchen’s 2022 Halloween box. Before this, I believe it had only ever been available as an online exclusive several years ago.

This smoky-grey, shimmery cobweb shaped bath bomb really stood out amongst the other treats in the 2022 Halloween box, I couldn’t help but buy another on eBay as soon as my box arrived. The Cobweb bath bomb shares its scent with the Black Pearl shower gel, (a product I promise to review soon).

The Cobweb bath bomb contains black sugar, chamomile blue oil, lavender absolute, olibanum oil and myrrh resinoid. It has one of Lush’s most relaxing scent families and is a good alternative if you’re getting a little bored of the heavily featured, Sleepy scent.

Like the Sleepy scent found in the likes of the Twilight and Sleepy bath bombs, the Cobweb bath bombs scent is rich with lavender, the Cobweb bath bomb however smells more herbal and has a generous helping of calming chamomile in it too.

If each word in the dictionary had its own fragrance, I’d like to believe that the word ‘relax’ would smell just like the Cobweb bath bomb.

At 110g the Cobweb bath bomb sits in my hand snuggly, it’s a little bit bigger than the I Want My Mummy bath bomb and a little bit smaller than the Ghostie bath bomb. It’s definitely too small to be a cobweb created by the huge Tarantula shower jelly from this year’s Halloween range! 😉

While it’s quite a plain bath bomb, the etched-in cobweb design makes it truly unique to any other bath bomb ever released by Lush. I love that the Cobweb bath bomb also has a slight shimmer to it. It’s just like a cobweb with drops of morning dew decorating it.

The photos I have included in this review do the Cobweb bath bomb no justice at all. While it doesn’t create bath art it does create the most mesmerising cloudy grey water, it reminds me of a water colour painting of a stormy or cloudy day. The Cobweb bath bomb is an incredibly quick fizzer and has completely dissolved within about 2 minutes of it being placed into the bath water. The water it leaves behind is so very sparkly. Like a star-spangled dusky nights sky.

As I said earlier, the Cobweb bath bomb’s scent is one of (if not the) most relaxing scent-family created by Lush. Laying back in its waters leaves me ready for a deep-sleep marathon. Lush really need to bring this scent back to life and throw it in to other product formats.

Lush, please bring back more old school products like this in the Lush Kitchen subscription boxes, getting to try such incredible Lush treasures is a real treat that makes my soul so very happy!

Purple Carrots Shower Gel from Lush

The Purple Carrots Shower Gel was one of 5 products available in this month’s Kitchen box (April 2022). SPOILER ALERT, I wholeheartedly believe that it is the best shower gel Lush have released in a very long time. With Calacas shower gel being the exception, Purple Carrots is now my all-time favourite Lush shower gel. A bold statement indeed, but one I stand by.

As much as I like the What’s Up, Doc? shower gel from this year’s Easter line, I will never understand how it got made a part of the Easter line over the Purple Carrots shower gel. Both are amazing, Lush have really outdone themselves when it comes to their new shower gels this year BUT Purple Carrots has blown me away so much more than the latter has.

The Purple Carrots shower gel is, as its name suggests, purple. It’s a slightly lighter shade of purple than the Plum Rain shower gel and has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency.

The Purple Carrots shower gel contains a long list of ingredients. It has both purple carrot infusion and carrageenan extract, as well as the following essential oils; bergamot, buchu and Sicilian lemon. It actually shares its scent with several past products – best remembered in the likes of the Follow the White Rabbit bath bomb and the Bunch of Carrots reusable bubble bar.

The delicate yet refreshing scent of the Purple Carrots shower gel is very nostalgic to me as it reminds me of my paternal nan and grandads house when I was a little. It makes me feel safe and uplifted, it’s a simple but beautiful citrusy fragrance that I cannot get enough of.

As I said earlier, Lush have really outdone themselves this year when it comes down to their new-release shower gels, they just keep getting better. If Purple Carrots doesn’t become a mainline product in the not-so-distant future, Lush are making a big mistake. Choosing not to release the Purple Carrots shower gel properly, would be as big of a mistake from Lush as when they decided to cut off all their customers with their ‘deletion’ of social media.

It is a crime to let the Purple Carrots shower gel be just a one-off exclusive to April 2022’s Lush Kitchen Subscription box. If Lush were still on social media I’d be tagging and messaging them every day, bugging them to bring it out as a new shower gel in their permanent all-year-round line.

As I said earlier, the Purple Carrots shower gels consistency is deliciously thick but not so thick it’s hard to get out of the bottle. It lathers up easily and a small amount goes a very long way. Once the hot water and steam of the shower meets the shower gel and you begin to lather it up, its scent engulfs you, filling your bathroom with its gorgeously refreshing scent.

The Purple Carrots shower gel leaves my skin looking and feeling clean, refreshed, soft and well moisturised. After I’ve used it, the scent lasts on my skin for a good few hours. It’s also really hydrating too. It seems to lock in moisture just as well as a body lotion does. Overall, I cannot recommend the Purple Carrots shower gel more, I am extremely bitter to only have one bottle of it. Lush, please, please bring it out properly!

The Imperial Egg Bath Bomb from Lush

I was really enjoying Lush’s 2022 Easter line; You can see this from all of the previous-to-this-posts, written reviews. It however wasn’t until I got April’s Lush Kitchen Subscription box that I realised how much better the Easter line could have been…

The Imperial Egg Bath Bomb was one of 5 products available in this month’s Kitchen box and I promise you that I am not exaggerating when I say that April 2022’s box was the best Lush Kitchen box to date.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb is exactly the same shape and size as this years’ The Golden Egg bath bomb. It’s a small one weighing in at only 90g but if Lush products have taught me anything over the years, it is that size doesn’t indicate how good or bad a product is going to be.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb is a shimmery, light-blue and contains eucalyptus, lemongrass, and peppermint oils. Its scent is incredibly refreshing. It has a clean, sharp fragrance that could wake up the weariest of souls. The peppermint and eucalyptus within it are the more dominant ingredient, scent wise.

As soon as the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb meets the water little bubbles begin to sizzle out of it. After just over a minute of light, gentle bubbles, green foam suddenly starts to spill out of the bath bomb.

The blue part of this bath bomb appears more white than blue, once it has been in the water for a while. Slowly but surely, the green foam spilling out of the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb becomes fiercer. Spouting from 2 points of the bath bomb instead of just the one. As the bath bomb spins in the water, beautiful green and white bath art begins to form on the water surface.

Looking back at the photographs and video footage that I captured of this bath bomb in action, I can see that it only took 7 minutes to fully dissolve. As you can see from the photos, I have included in this review it didn’t disappoint when it came down to pretty colouring and bath art.

Earlier, I mentioned that the 2022, Lush Easter line could have been so much better had they included some of the products exclusive to April’s Lush Kitchen box in the line. I think the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb would have been a best seller had they included it. I hope that Lush see sense and put it in next year’s Easter line as I’d love to use it again.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb’s scent make it a good product to go for if you have the sniffles, the eucalyptus in it makes it especially good for helping soothe sinus issues. For centuries, eucalyptus oils have been used to help manage with the symptoms of the common cold.

Even without a cold, the eucalyptus and peppermint oils in the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb make it a super awakening bath bomb. It is a great bath bomb to use if you’re in need of just an energy boost.

Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright green water, all of the goodness from the bath bomb’s ingredients makes the water incredibly soft and laying in its waters leaves your skin feeling silky smooth to touch and also leaves your skin appearing much brighter.

Overall, I am really, really impressed with the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb. I don’t mean to repeat myself, but I really do hope that Lush decide to release it in their Easter 2023 line as I’d love to use it again, and I feel others who aren’t subscribed to the Lush Kitchen boxes deserve a chance to use it too.

Keep it Fluffy Shower Gel from Lush

The Keep it Fluffy Shower Gel was in my personal opinion the standout, star product in February 2022’s Lush Kitchen Subscription Box.

The Keep it Fluffy scent was first introduced to the world in 2004 under the B Never Too Busy to be Beautiful brand. You’ll most recently recognise it as it featured in Lush’s 2021’s Advent Calendar in perfume form.

Keep it Fluffy shower gel is a slightly darker pink than Lush’s ridiculously popular, Snow Fairy shower gel and has a perfectly thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency.

Keep it Fluffy contains a long list of carefully put together ingredients – Lemongrass infusion, jasmine flower infusion, fine sea salt, Pakistani rose, and vanilla absolutes as well as the following essential oils; lemongrass and ylang ylang.

Keep it Fluffy’s scent is an inviting, powdery vanilla with hints of lemongrass. The ylang ylang within it also adds a floral element to it too. It’s a super fun, uplifting and glamourous fragrance.

As I said earlier Keep it Fluffy’s consistency is thick but not so thick it’s hard to get out of the bottle. A small amount of it goes a very long way, and it lathers up with ease.

In use, the warmth of the hot water and steam from the shower really bring the fragrance to life, some even say that ylang ylang is a great aphrodisiac, this ties the Keep it Fluffy shower gel in with the theme of Valentine’s Day perfectly.

Once you’re out of the shower, Keep it Fluffy’s scent remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day, it’s a lot more subtle on your skin than when it is fresh out of the bottle but its scent is still there and just as sultry.



The inclusion of the fine sea salt in the Keep it Fluffy shower gel makes it both an excellent cleanser and very gentle exfoliant. My skin feels a lot smoother after just one shower.

I also find that it leaves my skin hydrated enough to get away with not having to moisturise my whole body after getting out of the shower too, saving me some precious time. Time being something we can all agree on needing a bit more of…

I love when Lush bring their old scent-families back to life, people that have been shopping with Lush since they first opened their doors really do appreciate the trip down memory lane that the old scents take them on. It’s also a fabulous way to introduce new customers into the scents that made Lush who they are today.

I cannot wait to see if Lush release more products in the Keep it Fluffy fragrance and I hope that once again Lush bring this shower gel out properly so that I can get a much bigger bottle! 😊

Happy for S.A.D. Shower Gel from Lush

The Happy For S.A.D. Shower Gel was first released by Lush many years ago to raise awareness for SAD. SAD is short for the mental health condition, Seasonal Affective Disorder.

SAD is a form of depression that comes and goes with the seasons. It can happen during any one of the 4 seasons but is most commonly associated with the Winter time, due to the shorter hours of daylight that we get.

I first got a hold of a bottle way back in 2014 and I liked the shower gel so much that I made sure to grab another whenever it came up on the old-style, Lush Kitchen menu.

(pic TBA)

As someone who has lived with depression since my teens it immediately caught my attention just on its name alone.

The Happy for S.A.D. shower gel contains neroli, grapefruit and Mandarin oils. All of which are uplifting, mood-boosting ingredients.

The neroli in particular is very popular in products like this as it has been scientifically proven to boost the serotonin levels in your brain (AKA the happy hormone!)

(pic TBA)

Consistency wise, the Happy for S.A.D. shower gel is a little runnier than the average Lush shower gel. A little however goes a very long way and it lathers up fairly quickly.

It’s a beautiful shade of purple which isn’t the first colour that comes to mind considering it’s ingredients. It’s similar in colour to the Twilight shower gel, which is not what I was expecting at all. From reading the ingredient list I imagined it to be more like the Happy Hippy or Bubbly shower gels.

(pic TBA)

What I really love about the Happy for S.A.D. shower gel (apart from its scent) is how it makes my skin feel. It’s one of the most skin-softening shower gels I’ve ever used from Lush. It’s delicious and a real treat for me to use, I always over indulge as I can never resist.

I also love that it’s scent lasts. Not just on your skin after use but in its bottle too. I still have one bottle of it from 2014 which has about one-fifth of the product left in it. – It still smells just as good as the day I got it. I can only apologise for not reviewing it on here sooner!

I’d love to see Lush create more products with the Happy for S.A.D. scent in the near future. It’s a truly beautiful and incredibly moreish fragrance that I can see working in so many different formats.

Happy Skin Facial Exfoliator from Lush

The Happy Skin Facial Exfoliator was one of 6 products from September 2021’s Lush Kitchen subscription box. At the time of writing this review I am sad to say that it hasn’t been available in any other capacity again since.

At the risk of sounding like a complete drama queen, THIS IS NOT OK, AT ALL! – I’ve never liked an exfoliator for your face more. Regrettably, I let my husband try it and just like that I had to now not just ration the product on my uses of it, but his uses of it too.

Considering I have been using it at the most 2 times a week since September, (my husband considerably more because he is a diva) I think it has lasted quite well, I still have about a quarter of it left.

The Happy Skin facial exfoliator contains, bamboo stern extract, tagua nut powder, fresh jackfruit juice, sesame seed absolute, vanilla absolute, tonka absolute and the following essential oils: argan, rose hip and extra virgin olive oil.

It is described as an ‘enzymic, vitamin rich’ exfoliator filled with ‘ground tagua nut’ and is said to ‘help gently clear and brighten your skin’. To use, all you have to do is splash your face with warm water, scoop out about a pound-coin-sized amount of it from the pot, followed by you then gently massaging it over your face and neck. I like to pay special attention over my nose and the apples of my cheeks and my chin.

Once you’ve finished gently buffing the product around your face, you then simply rinse it off. Your skin immediately feels and appears a lot smoother and brighter, just 30 seconds of using this cream banishes all of the dead skin cells and microscopic dirt away while also calming the skin of any redness down too.

With it having quite a vast amount of ingredients its scent is difficult to describe, it’s like a nutty vanilla with a slight pineapple twang. My face LOVES it. My husband’s face is equally as obsessed.

The formula is light and not at all cakey like most other facial exfoliators. If Lush do not bring this out as a part of their new all-year-round skin care line next year, then we are going to fall out. It’s amazing. For me to rave about a skincare item is very rare indeed.

Lush, you probably won’t see this as you’ve sworn off of social media (🙄) but Happy Skin needs to become permanently available, my face depends on it. Plus, I’d like to get my husband his own pot so that he will stop using all of mine!

Slammer Shower Gel from Lush

The Slammer Shower Gel is an old Lush favourite that the subscribers of the Lush Kitchen box were reintroduced to when it made an appearance several boxes ago. When the Lush Kitchen did weekly menus between 2014 and 2017 the Slammer shower gel was frequently featured so I was very pleased to see that it was back and had finally earned a place in one of the new-style-Lush-Kitchen monthly subscription boxes!

Slammer shower gel is full of energy boosting ingredients, it is the perfect shower gel to use in the morning to help fuel an early-morning start AND (although I don’t drink alcohol so cannot say this from personal experience) it is also said to be really good to use when you’ve got a dreaded hangover.

Slammer has a long list of ingredients; Lime peel, ginger root infusion, fresh sea water straight from Poole, fresh lime juice and lime and lemon oils. The old version of Slammer shower gel did have honey in but this most recent release was 100% vegan which I know caused a lot of excitement within the Lush Community.

The Slammer shower gels scent is refreshing and bright, the lime and lemon in it make it incredibly zingy, it also has a slightly spicy bite thanks to the ginger root infusion. It smells delicious, almost good enough to eat but please don’t eat it, as tempting as it is!

Consistency wise it’s ever-so-slightly runny but not so bad that you accidently lose most of it trying to put it in your hands ready to lather. A little amount of it goes a very long way and it lathers up easily – my husband really likes to use it after work (instead of first thing in the morning) he has quite a physically demanding job and can get really dirty, he says Slammer lifts off anything stubborn left on his skin easy-peasy, he says it is much better than any other Lush shower gel. A bold statement indeed!

The scent really comes alive when used in the shower too, the heat of the water and the steam really intensifies it, its scent fills your bathroom and it stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day.

I have really missed the Slammer shower gel, it not only smells good but also leaves your skin positively glowing. This shower gel really needs to come back as a staple store product, even if just for a season!
