Supertramp bubble bar

Supertramp bubble bar was made with the Supertramp shower gel scent.

The Supertramp shower gel is made from 2 Lush products mixed together; ‘Smaragadine’ phyto foam bath (a cosmetic to go product) and the old classic ‘Tramp’ shower gel.  It’s a mossy, woody dark green scent.  This has patchouli and peppermint, rose, lavender and orange, petigrain, sandalwood and ginger.

Here’s a photo i took of it, and below is a link to a youtube video i made of supertramp in the tub.

I cut it in half and use half per bath as this is a big, heavy bar.  Watch the video for a look at whst it does in the bath ⬇️

 

 

Heres a video of the showergel

Don’t Rain On My Parade

See my video of it below.  One of the new lush shower gels  which have come here to North America.  These 3  shower gels including Lord of Misrule, Don’t Rain on my Parade, and Beautiful,  debuted at lush new “Superstore” on Oxford Street in London.

 

This Don’t Rain on My Parade below shower gel is a teal, blue colour. Scented with blueberry juice, vanilla, cassie, voilet leaf, ylang ylang and sandalwood.

similar to Ultraviolet but sweeter like their “Tuca Tuca” massage bar, and ‘Violet Nights’ bath oil.

Here’s a video i made of it where i discuss the scent of Don’t Rain on my Parade and the other two shower gels in more detail 🙂

250g (8oz) £9.50 (17.50)

Here’s a “family reunion portrait” of all the Lush products throughout the years which have this same scent.

 

 

Pumpkin soap

Lush Time Xmas 2008: You’ll want a whole one, but be warned; it’s even heavier than a real pumpkin and it’s not hollow inside. Probably best to get yourself a manageable slice or two. Mo’s new soap is a lovely creamy pumpkin coloured affair with a scent that she borrowed from the gorgeous Almond Buttercream: sweet wild orange, lime, mandarin and spice cinnamon. (If you’re northern, like Emma from training and Auntie Pamela, and could only have a turnip for Halloween when you were little, this more than makes up for the childhood deprivation.) It’s only around for Halloween so get yours before All Hallows Day.

Here’s a picture of my Pumpkin soap back then. It’s a 100g piece that Lush were selling via the website.   The big slab of soap that they sold in the store that Halloween looked like the below photo.  I LOVE these soaps, the smell is great.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Rapeseed Oil; Sunflower Oil; Coconut Oil (Brassica napus; Helianthus annuus; Cocos nucifera), Fresh Organic Orange Juice (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Pumpkin puree (Cucurbita pepo), Sodium Hydroxide, Perfume, Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Mandarin Oil (Citrus nobilis), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Cinnamon Leaf Oil (Cinnamomum cassia), *Eugenol, *Limonene, Titanium Dioxide, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 45350, Colour 15510, Pumpkin Seeds (Cucurbita pepo)

 

Day of the Dead perfume

Lush Uk made these perfumes for forum members only in 2010, give or take a year. It came before ‘Calacas’. This Day of the Dead perfume was one of the first few lush products with this lime and neroli scent, and the name changed to ‘Calacas’.

Sparkly Pumpkin

See my video of it below.  

5 out of 5 rating 


 

Lush Description: At the end of a long day, pop this Sparkly Pumpkin into the bath. As you crumble its golden shimmeryness under running water, you’ll feel instantly re-energized. An uplifting blend of juniperberry, grapefruit and lime oils will fill the room with an enticing, cocktail-like punch. And as you sink deep under the glittering gold water, you won’t be able to keep from smiling – probably because this little pumpkin is made to make every day bright.


This has the scent of the “Lush” soap called “Mr Punch”.  It has a fruit punch smell, and i LOVE it.
 

Here’s Mr Punch soap

Jingle Spells

See my video of this below

Review: A Christmas ballistic that I’ve been hooked on since I first tried it in late 2001. A slight Licorice scent to me, because of the fennel I guess, and that’s what makes it a different scent.  It has a lovely fruity note to it as well (the tangerine). It smells enchanting to me.   It turns the water purple and has silver and black foil stars inside for added effect. Lush claims that the herbs and plants in Jingle Spells helps when you over imbibe with drink during the holidays.

It smells magical yet feminine because of the ylang ylang.   I think I’ve had about 25-50 in total throughout the years.

Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, perfume, juniperberry oil, tangerine oil, fennel oil, ylang ylang oil, twinkling stars

Lush products that share this scent are;

Jingle Jelly

Magic of Christmas Fun bar

Red Rice soap

Wizard bubble bar

Lush Times 2002 Yuletide description: Jingle Spells was last year’s Christmas ballistic bestseller, so we decided to leave it just exactly the way it was; why mess with success? It still has little stars in it and it still smells of juniperberry (the ones they make gin from) and revitalising tangerine with fennel, which smells a bit like aniseed, but not too strongly, plus beautiful floral ylang ylang blossom. Jingle Spells is a magically refreshing, detoxing bath; we recommend it as a Christmas hangover cure (but with out po-faced caps on we’d also like to recommend that you don’t drink too much as it’s very bad for your skin).

Notes: See Jingle Spells (star-shaped)

Video

Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, perfume, juniperberry oil, tangerine oil, fennel oil, ylang ylang oil, colours 61585 & 18050, twinkling stars

Description: This is the Star-Shaped Jingle Spells that was in the Lush Christmas 2006 gift called “Wishing on a Star”. Same great fruity, fennel Jingle Spells scent. Still helps in time of too much partying.

 

 

Review: A Christmas ballistic that I’ve been hooked on since I first tried it in late 2001. A slight Licorice scent to me (because of the fennel I guess), a lovely fruity scent (the tangerine), and a Juniper/Gin (some Gins are made with juniper berries). That’s what I smell when I sniff this enchanting ballistic. The smell lasts once the the water too. It turns the water purple and has silver and black foil stars inside for added effect. Lush claims that the herbs and plants in Jingle Spells helps when you over imbibe with drink during the holidays. I love having one with an Icon bbs and it’s absolutely decadent and wonderful. It smells magical yet feminine because of the ylang ylang, but there’s not alot of ylang ylang in here which is good in my opinion. I truly Love this ballistic. If you like a light sort of licorice smell you’ll probably like this. I think I’ve had about 60-75 in total throughout the years.

Wizard

Lush Description: Cast a Jingle Spell over weariness with this shimmering bubble bar that makes bath time magic. With energising tangerine oil and purifying juniperberry and fennel essential oils, the Wizard banishes stress and helps you recover. Perfect for those occasions when you’ve over-indulged, the Wizard will disappear after Halloween, so grab enough to see you through the party season.

Review:  I’m not surprised that i love this bubble bar.  It’s purple, sparkly, and smells like my beloved Jingle Spells ballistic. He’s so cute, i love his silver eyes and the star on his Wizard hat. The scent is a slightly spicy fruity scent.   A perfect fit for a Halloween. I bought fifteen of these.

Here’s a video i made of Wizard in the tub.

Magic

Magic1-vi

Lush Times Xmas 2008: A double magic spell for vitality and prosperity. If we told you that there was a surprise inside, it wouldn’t be a surprise anymore, would it? So we won’t. This is a bright turquoise quadrodecahedral * (*It has 14 sides) Ballistic that turns your bathwater a deep shade of sapphire blue, the colour of a mountain lake, so there must be something magical inside it. Seen from the top, Magic is a hexagon, a “hex” Ballistic, with a blend of marjoram and rose in the turquoise shell to dissolve away your anxieties. Then, as the water changed colour, basil and peppermint essential oils swirls into your magical bath, symbolishing growth, vitality and energy. When your sprig of parsley floats free, that’s to bring you prosperity. Magic is Lush’s Yuletide spell for everyone, to wish you good luck for 2009, to help you banish bad things to the past and bring you a brighter future.

Quantitative Ingredients: Apple infusion, Rose Water, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Fine Sea Salt, Glyceryl Stearate & PEG-100 Stearate, Cocamide MEA, Glycol Cetearate, Perfume, Cyder vinegar, Propylene Glycol, Lauryl Betaine, Bergamot Oil, Rose Absolute, Orange Flower Absolute, Neroli Oil, Tincture of Benzoin, Rice Bran Oil, Lilial, Limonene, Linalool, Snowflake Lustre, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

It’s a slow fizzer.  The scent doesn’t last on the skin.  That doesn’t bother me because i don’t fancy smelling like an apple.  I do love bathing in this.

Lush has redesigned So White for Christmas 2016.  Instead of just a round white ball, now it has a green curved stem design. And it’s no longer pink inside as in past Christmases.  This year is has a blue and yellow/green color.

A crisp and delicate apple-
scented bath bomb as pure as
snow. The bergamot oil and
rose absolute essential oils will
help you feel calm and peaceful,
while neroli oil and orange flower
absolute will revive your spirit.

(sweet, green apple)

I’ll be doing a demo video of the new one as well.

Once you pop this sparkling, red, glittery Santa bomb in your tub, it will turn your water from bright red to vivid green, filling your bathroom with a sensual, uplifting satsuma fragrance you may remember from Christmasses past (Satsumo Santa, anyone?). All we want for Christmas is this orangey baby!

This is a fun bath bomb. It darts all around the tub and spews color and glitter all the around the tub. He has a cute little face too.This friendly face is full of sweet-smelling goodness with a fragrance of vanilla and candy floss.  Drop this festive Bath Bomb in your tub for a fun, lighthearted soak.

Northern Lights

5 out of 5 rating for the 2015 version.  
3.5 for the 2016 version.

See my demo videos of both versions below.

Northern Lights was made with the Lush Christmas Eve  bubble bar scent and the “Santa’ FUN bar.

 

Lush Description:  Escape into relaxation with this bath bomb that gives an impressive display no matter where you are in the world. As the ends fizz away, the middle slowly dissolves to reveal blue and neon green, turning your water into a calming jasmine and ylang ylang-scented swirling night sky scattered with stars.

Review:  WOW a blue, pink, and yellow explosion of color, just like the real Northern Lights, coupled with that lovely floral fragrance of their Christmas Eve bubble bar.  Ylang ylang and jasmine. Makes the water purple.  This is the most incredible show in the water than any other lush bath bomb i can think of.

Here’s a demo of the 2016 version in the tub

Here’s a short demo video of this 2015 version close up in the tub, WOW

This bath bomb just happens to be in my Top 5 Lush bath bombs of-all-time.

Twilight shower gel

Twilight

The first Twilight shower gel ever made was a Lush UK forum member only special.  The lush bath bomb called Twilight had come out in stores new that year and everyone loved it, so when Mark C asked what we wanted special, we said “a shower gel made out of that new bath bomb that we love’.  The movie Twilight had just come out.  The original (above picture)was made in a light purple color at that time to look like twilight.  Twilight is not Night time, so i never understood why they made it darker purple (below), but i’m not complaining about the shower gel itself .  It’s fragrance is a Gorgeous herbal lavender note and then a sweet caramel tonka bean (like vanilla bean) note.  And they work marvelously together.  Who would have thought to put these two things together.  Brilliant.

The Lush Kitchen made this again for us to purchase on their on line site.  Thank you lush Kitchen.  I bought five bottles. 🙂

Potion

Scent family includes Santa Monica bath bomb, Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar, Potion perfume Holiday bubble bar, and “Oops Almond Kisses’ moisturizer.

LushPotionFamilyPortraitb (1)

Lush Times 2005 description: Potion smells of roses and tangerines but mostly of carnations. We’ve been asked to bottle the scent and sell it as a perfume but until that happens, the best way to smell of Potion is to smooth this wonderful lotion all over your body. This has the added advantage of moisturizing your skin with a light touch of almond oil and cocoa butter, softening it with rose petal infusion and toning it with fresh tangerine. Take it on holiday as an after sun too.

Image

 

Review: Potion is lighter and the carnations smell kind of spicy like cloves and then there’s the addition of the tangerine and is one of the sexiest summer scents. I advise you to find some. Carnation is great.

Ingredients: Rose Petal Infusion (Rosa centifolia), Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Glycerine, Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, Fresh Tangerines (Citrus reticulata), Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia), Carnation Absolute (Dianthus carophyllus), Tangerine Oil (Citrus reticulata), Cetearyl Alcohol, Perfume, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.
