New Lush products: Mangnificent & Parsley Porridge Soap, Granny Takes A Dip Bath Bomb, D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap, Zeste Hair Gelly, African Paradise Body Conditioner

Earlier this month, LUSH unveiled 6 fresh innovations to add to their fabulous line. It includes 2 soaps, a hair gel, a bath bomb, a body conditioner, and a shave soap. I received all of these earlier in the month and have been putting them to the test to share with you all today! Let’s take a peek into the products and see my thoughts:

LUSH Cosmetics Mangnificent Soap Review
Mangnificent Soap

The first of the 2 soaps, Mangnificent ($6.95), is a blend mango (fresh and dried), Sicilian lemon, mandarin, and neroli oils to make a tropical cocktail for your body! I honestly don’t love bar soaps, but this is the nicest one I’ve tried. I love the citrusy smell and it lathers nicely!

LUSH Cosmetics Parsley Porridge Soap Review
Parsley Porridge Soap

The other soap, Parsley Porridge ($6.95), looks scary, but works just the same. This soap features parsley, thyme, and tea tree oil to act as a dirt-buster for your skin. If you can’t handle herbal scents, I wouldn’t recommend it, because it’s a bit potent. But, this one does a better job at exfoliating the skin because it has ground oatmeal. I didn’t love the scent, but since it doesn’t linger on my skin, I can handle it for 5 minutes in the shower!

LUSH Cosmetics Zeste Hair Gelly Review
Zeste Hair Gelly

The Zeste Hair Gelly ($12.95) is the first gel LUSH has come out with. I don’t use hair gel, so I handed it over to my dad, who has gelled his hair since I was probably in diapers. It has orange juice, petitgrain, and neroli oils to give this a very strong citrus scent. My dad didn’t like this gel because of the scent, but his hair looked the same as usual, so I’d say if you don’t mind the scent, go for it!

LUSH Cosmetics African Paradise Body Conditioner Review

Just like conditioner for your hair, African Paradise Shower Smoothie ($39.95) does the same for your skin. I haven’t tried any product like this, so I was intrigued! You use the body conditioner in the shower, massaging over damp skin. Then, once you’re out of the shower- simply pat dry! You can still feel the product on your skin, it’s very hydrating and leaves legs soft and smooth with no need to apply a lotion after showering. This scent is a combination of carnation, clove, and sandalwood for a spicy floral scent. I honestly didn’t love the scent, but I like the product. LUSH has a few other scents online, so you can pick and choose to your tastes!

LUSH Cosmetics D'Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap Review
D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap

And here we have, in my honest opinion, the crown jewel of this launch! D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap ($16.95) is a little piece of shaving heaven, disguised as strawberry marshmallow fluff. First off, IT’S PINK. Who doesn’t love pink? This whipped soap has fresh strawberries, egg whites, coconut oil, and maple syrup to create a scent that smells sweet and does a great job for shaving. I grab a handful the size of a nail polish bottle for each leg, and massage it to create a creamy and milky lather to shave my legs smoothly. Even without applying lotion or a African Paradise Shower Smoothie afterwards, my skin is left touchably smooth. I ran out of this too fast, and I miss it already! You NEED this one. Run, don’t walk, to your nearest store, because it’s sold out online as I type this!

LUSH Cosmetics Granny Takes A Dip Bath Bomb Review
Granny Takes A Dip Bath Bomb

And last but not least, we have the Granny Takes A Dip Bath Bomb ($6.95), is a psychadelic looking bath fizz that smells just like the scent of a LUSH store. It includes lemon, ginger, and black pepper and turns bath water a dark purple. It looks so neat whenever you dissolve it. I used it in one bath, although I normally break them up into 2-4 pieces- I just had to see what this one looked like! The outer ring has bits of bubble bar, so you can crumble it to get some foamy suds in your tub. If you’re a bath girl, you must try this for a relaxing bath. It’s been so long since I had used a bath bomb, it was pure bliss!

Overall I was very impressed with these new LUSH additions. I mostly recommend D’Fluff, because it’s my personal favorite and works for everyone. If you’re a bath gal, you can’t go wrong with Granny Takes A Dip. If you prefer to shower, try the African Paradise Shower Smoothie. And you can’t go wrong with either soap if you love LUSH soaps, I’m just not much of a soap girl. The only item I’d say to pass on is Zeste, as my dad was really off-put by the scent. But, I give him props for doing some blog testing for me!

    the Granny Takes A Dip Bath Bomb sounds really good!

    • Olivia Frescura

      It really is! Definitely worth using the entire bomb at once…so luxurious!

  • Chelsea Pearl

    Very interested in trying D’Fluff – sounds really cool and different!

    • Olivia Frescura

      It’s so awesome. I miss it already. My small 2.4oz container only lasted about 7 shaves, but the full size is more than twice of that. Still a pricy one per shave, though…but it’s so much better than shave gel!
