Lush Times Online: Delightfully soothing, creamily smoothing, vanilla scented lotion for your body and hands. The Lush body creams that come in black pots are the thicker ones; the lighter ones, like Vanilla Delite, turn up in bottles. (100% recycled of course.) It’s been named Delite instead of Delight as a joke, not to annoy the writing team. The important thing is that it’s made with lovely light oils and butters – including Hawaiian tamanu and monoi – organic coconut water and Simon’s Vanilla Mountain scent! Use it to scent and soften your skin.
Review: QofN was the sort of precursor to the present ‘I Should Coco” soap by Lush. The difference is that this doesn’t have the scratchy, exfoliating dessicated coconut. This is a creamy soap that smells more of Lushious coconut than I Should Coco soap in my opinion. I’m not cazy about coconut, there are times when I hate coconut. So I’m picky about coconut scented products. But this Quinquireme of Ninevah soap adds oranfe which makes it more complex and lovely. is one I do indeed like to use. Not bad, being that it’s a coconut soap. I would think the majority of people would find this to be a 4 star soap.
Lush Times description: Q of N is a creamy, smooth cocnut scented soap made in 35 kg block with two rope handles so it can be carried with dignity to its destination within Lush shops. Inspired by the poem by John Masefield, in which he describes the Quinquereme’s cargo of precious oils and spices. Some of which we used in the soap’s coconut based perfume. We’ll cut you a 100 g slice from one of these precious cargoes to bring a hint of the exotic Middle East of times gone by to your very own wash basin.
Review: This is a pyramid shaped (the one on the left is a little less pyramid-like LOL), it has gold glitter and smells of Lush’s signature “Karma” scent. This is a wonderful smelling and skin softening melt. It has tns of cocoa butter. You simply put it in the bath water after it’s filled and it melts with the hot water and leaves little trails of beautiful golden glitter. You can also smoosh it up under the running water while the bath is filling up too. It’ll work either way. But beware…it has LOADS of glitter. You will have glitter everywhere (including your friends clothing, your dog and your husband) for a couple of days. I loved this melt and I wish it were still around.
Yuletide 2001 Lush Times description: Fake perfumes are so good these days that city dwellers have almost lost the ability to appreciate real scents what with the synthtic smells of coffee, bread and burgers pumped out to attract us to use their sources. There are some very beautiful synthetic perfumes (and there’s even one in Karma) but we prefer the real thing, perfumes made from flowers just like the great, great, great, great, great grandfather would have done if he hadn’t been too busy diggeing coal. Why? Because we don’t just use them for the scent; we use them for the effect on the mind and body. This is why a Bath Melt scented with Karma is so lovely; it softens and moisturizes your skin as well as scenting it. Try our new little pyramid of perfume in your bath and feel what we mean….
Review: When this bubble bar initially came out it was a limited edition “Mother’s Day” product. This bubble bar has the same scent as the popular Lush “Honey I Washed The Kids” soap, “Soft Couer” massage bar, “Honey Bee” ballistic, etc. At times this scent can be too sweet for me. I have to be in the mood for the sweet yummy toffee scent but when I am this is a fun, great looking bar to use. In the bath, the scent isn’t as strong though and the smell diminishes too rapidly in my opinion. These are great gifts for a friend too because they look like a cute piece of cake or something.
2006 Lush Times description: The Ma Bar is our solution to the chocolate cravings which seem to possess us when the weather gets warmer. It has been scientifically proven that smelling sweets can satisfy your appetite for them. Crumble the chocolate and toffee coloured (and scented) Ma Bar under your running bathwater for a cocoa, orange, sugar and honey scented bath (let’s not forget the scrumptious smell of Honey I Washed The Kids) which tones your skin and cures your need for sweetness (until next time). The Ma Bar has been extended because you love it so much, you’ve made it a best seller.
Review: This ballistic was discontinued about as quickly as it came out. Loads of people liked it on the forum but I guess it just didn’t sell at all and was pulled a few months after introduction. It smells like the perfume Ginger, highly floral rose but it has a strong lemony top note also. I wouldn’t normally like this combo but Lush also includes Sandalwood, Mimosa (like is in 17 Cherry Tree Lane soap and Sakura ballistic) , and also some red mandarin oil. So while i don’t hate it, i don’t love it either. It’s quite strong when fresh and the red mandarin orange oil and sandalwood is covered up by the fresh ginger and lemon scent, but when this ballistic mellows a bit it’s lovely. It makes bright yellow water. 3 stars.
Lush Times 2004 Description: How about a jolly bathtime adventure with lashings of ginger and lemon? Drop into a pre-run bath for a refreshing ginger fizz and lemonade experience.
Lush.a.Lot’s Review: This smaller ballistic (70g) is a long timer in the Lush product line. It remains just as popular as it was years ago. This is a small bomb but the scent is not small, it’s got a strong lavender scent with a wee bit of a fennel bite to it. This is a staple Lush item for me. When i need some relaxing WnD always does the job and it can be combined with many oither lush product which have a lavender scent: French Kiss bubble bar, Therapy message bar, Angels on Bare Skin, Dreamtime Bath Melt. If this was a regular sied ballistic it would probably be a four star ballistic for me.
Lush Times 2006 description: Can’t sleep? Won’t sleep? The Waving not Drowning’s essential oils give strength and courage to the weak and fatigued then dispatch you to the land of nod. Keep several in stock for emergencies, jet lag, and 3 a.m. insomnia cures.
How To Use: Fill bath tub and drop bomb into water. For those bath bombs containing flower petals or other surprises, wrap the bath bomb in a nylon before use. To make your experience even more memorable, combine a bath bomb with a bath melt.
