Sun bath oil

Video below. This bath oil Has the same orange, mandarin, tangerine, lemon, grapefruit scent as the ‘Sun’ perfume. I took a picture of both for you.
I’m so enamored with this bath oil. I have always been a fan of the Sun fragrance. It’s so cheery and joyous and yummy.
The Sun bath oil is luxurious, the gorgeous gold shimmer streaming, then dancing, in the water. When the light hits that gold shimmer, i become mesmerized. My favorite of the Lush bath oils. I would stock up on twenty of these if i could.

Cosmetics To Go (Lush before they were called Lush)

Sept 1, 2015

I won a trip to Lush Headquarters in Poole, England last year at this same time.

It was a magical trip, a dream come true.  And I recorded a lot of video for you all.

I’m building this page, organizing all my cosmetics to go product photos that i’ve taken throughout the years.  I will also have scans of the Cosmetics To Go catalogs here. 🙂 I’m building a list of Cosmetics To Go products from their Catalogs, with product photos, background  and ingredients info.

I still have an array of items from Lush founders’ previous company “Cosmetics To Go” (CTG), inwhich i’ve made a video of.  This is the video that won the Lush contest and which led to a Lushie dream come true.  I’ve collected them throughout the years.

Many years ago the owners of Lush were kind of enough to send me all of his original press Cosmetic To Go catalogs, dating from 1993-1996,   still wrapped in their original sealed plastic packages.

The products they made were To Die.  If you think Lush is great you should see these!

In the meantime, enjoy this video below. 🙂

Here is my (signed by the author Mira Manga) copy of the book, available now at Lush stores near you and online at lush.co.uk or lush.com

heres a video I recorded of a vintage catalog
I made a video of this edition today, here it is..

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Golden Lustre Sparkle.Lauryl Betaine, Cocamide DEA, Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum), Tangerine Oil (Citrus reticulata), *Citral, *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Hydroxycitronellal, Perfume, Red Golden Glitter (Polyethylene terephthalate).

 

Review: This is like swimming in orange juice, real orange juice not fake neon orange smelling and orange colored drink. It’s seemed to be almost thick and rich with ochre colored, shimmering and very fragrant water. The bar is a ochre color throughout. There is a lot of glitter left in the tub after the water has drained. It looks like tan colored sand but if you look closer and in the light, it’s all golden glitter. So pretty. I give this a 5 out of 5 rating.

Here’s a video demo and review i made of this bubble bar in the tub

Lush Spa

I was treated to a Synaethesia Spa treatment when I won the trip to England to visit the founders of lush, the factory tour, kitchen tour, etc.

Synaethesia is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.  People who report such experiences are known as synesthetes. In one common form of synesthesia, known as  color-graphemic synesthesia, letters or numbers are perceived as inherently colored. In spatial-sequence, or number form.  Numbers, months of the year, and/or days of the week elicit precise locations in space (for example, 1980 may be “farther away” than 1990), or may appear as a three-dimensional map (clockwise or counterclockwise)

I’ve been to many spas, really fabulous spas, and though they were awesome, they were nothing like a Lush spa Treatment.

They’ve catered to our imaginations.  Everything is color, scent, states of being, fantasy, Transformations.

Much, much more than getting a great body and head massage with a facial and quiet serene music and low light surroundings.

In Lush spas.  They compose songs  to go with your spa treatment.  They’ve brought musicians (Simon Emmerson), singers, to weave beautiful sounds.  And you’re surround by sound, not just music piped through a speaker system.

Bottles and Bottles of colored liquids, looking like potions, and lit up with light, line the shelves of the front greeting area.

A huge bathtub and shower area with every lush product imaginable to use.

Rose scented bubbles flying around the room.

The massage therapists were trained to do their massage movements in flow with the music, long, gentle strokes, and wrote the music to match.

You can hear birds, the gentle cooing seemingly right next to you.  You can *Hear* the sun going down.  I won’t try to explain that one.

My photos and lush photos of the Lush Spas is coming soon, as soon as I finish entering the new 2015 lush Oxford Street items here.
