Lush Kitchen Box October 2023 Review: Pirates Theme!

Hi all~ I’m very excited about today’s post! I was not expecting how novel I would find the Lush Kitchen Box October 2023. Everyone always anticipates the Lush kitchen box to be extra special for their two biggest holidays (Halloween and Christmas), so much so that a lot of people prefer to only sign up for the subscription service for that month. This year Lush went for a pirate theme, featuring many earthy, dank, fruity, and spicy scents. It was personally a hit for me as I love earthy scents and when Lush goes more experimental.

 

Leftovers from last month’s box:

The packaging and turn-around for this month was better than last. They had failed to include one of the items from the September box, so it was delivered with the October box. The October box came in this bigger box which had September’s item on top in some packaging peanuts:

As a consolation, they included the Give Me Body soap which is also part of the Glitterbox collab.

Lush Kitchen Box November 2023 Spoilers: Inventor Box

Hi Everyone~ I am preparing my October posts and trying to get ahead for the Lush Kitchen Box November 2023 box, but had to dig for information on this one since I didn’t save anything as I came across it. Lush decided to do something different with this box. There was no voting this month, instead, they are having an “Inventor Box” where Lush product creators Ro & Gary feature new products they’ve created which Kitchen subscribers can then vote to keep to be released in Lush’s main range. So some of these items are potentially not entirely “kitchen exclusive”.

Items in the Lush Kitchen Box November 2023:

Lush Oat Milk Latte Scrub Bar – Featuring oat milk powder, espresso absolute, and shea butter. It’s both scrubby and moisturizing

Lush Passionfruit Shower Gel – Lush’s first scrubby shower gel featuring passion fruit seeds that give a nice exfoliation.

Lush Tropical Co-Mingle Body Scrub – A tropical fruit version of Lush’s 3-in-1 body scrub, Co-Mingle. Original Co-Mingle has a soothing lavender scent.

Lush Espresso Lip Scrub – Features some of the same espresso absolute that the oat milk latte scrub includes.

Lush Peachy Ro’se Body Lotion– The first time this Lush Fragrance is available in body lotion form.

It’s a very scrubby box which I’m excited about as I’ve been enjoying Lush’s scrubs lately. I am especially excited about the Oat Milk Latte scrub and the tropical co-mingle as I love the idea of using them before shaving, cause not only will they help to scrub away dead skin in preparation for shaving, but also provide some slip to help your razor glide.

A tropical fruity box for November seems out of place, but I can kind of see this having a fall vibe with the espresso. Similar to the last October 2023 Kitchen Box, I feel this box will provide a full bathing experience, with scrubs, a shower gel, and a moisturizer. Everything you need for soft, yummy scented skin!

To get people hyped on the box, they shared this preview of the products explaining some of the ingredients. I love these videos cause they get me in the mood to make my own scrubs!

Barbie x Lush Collab Collection 2023

Hi y’all, it’s been a lil quiet here lately and I will admit my posts aren’t that engaging rn lmao. I’ve just been getting up some random stuff as I build the site.

Lush just launched a collab with Barbie today, Barbie x Lush, and I’ll admit it’s kind of disappointing. I’m kind of sick of all the pink at this point and I say this as a pink lover. Sometimes, pink doesn’t look good and I feel like this collab reflects that… any sort of collaboration right now, especially with Barbie, feels like a cash grab.

That being said, they have released a new scent with this series i’d be curious to smell in person. You can pre-order the products on their app now, some being region locked.

I have some more planned so stay tuned. Is there anything from the Barbie x Lush collab that you’re interested in?

I have way too much perfume and body care products, soaps, etc, to justify getting something, and I find the pinks used lowkey aborrhent.

Lush Kitchen Box August 2023 Review

Hi again, I’m back with yet another Lush post xD. I mentioned the spoilers a while ago, and now it’s here: my Lush Kitchen Box August 2023! This is my first month ever getting the Lush Kitchen Box since it launched in the U.S. I remember ordering from the Lush Kitchen back when it was a UK exclusive. I am enjoying bathing again as I relaunch myself into shared public spaces.

A lot of people were reporting they received theirs damaged and coming in late, they should arrive around the 5th of each month. How it was stupid of Lush to ship a packaging-less. They make a big deal that the kitchen box be as plastic-free and naked as possible, but often to the detriment of loyal fans who get their orders, all melted into a sticky mess.

I was lucky to get mine in one piece, and it’s honestly gorgeous! It has made my room smell so minty and like a Lush store.

I myself am pretty happy with the selection of products since I know it’s all stuff I can use up.

I think the colors in this box go so well together! All the naked products look good together too. I love minty scents so I loved everything in this box.

 

What came in the Lush Kitchen Box August 2023?

 

Lush Melomint Bubble Bar. Don’t really care for bubble bars, but they do help make the bath nice and silky.

Lush Ice Blue Soap

Lush Ice Blue Soap. This was drying like all other Lush soaps I’ve used. It lasted well, though.

 

World Piece Bath Bomb, so cute <3

 

Pros:

  • I love all the blues and greens
  • I’m a fan of minty scents so this box was a hit for me
  • Makes your room/house smell amazing

 

Cons:

  • Don’t really care for bubble bars
  • Those without a bathtub won’t be able to use some of these items.
  • Performance on the bath bomb was kind of weak
