NOTE: This product may melt and is NOT guaranteed to arrive solid during the summer months!

Ohhh, there’s nothing better than smearing your favorite foody combo (orange and chocolate) all over yourself in the bath, and having it be less drying than soap. I love the Sonic Death Monkey scent of this Heavenly Bodies buttercream. I do believe this choclate dipped orange scent is my favorite.

Lush description: Want a body like an angel? Got a body like a zombie? Revive your skin with a muddy mixture of chocolate, cocoa butter, refreshing orange juice, anti-microbial Rhassoul mud and stimulating tangerine oils. We scent each chunk of Heavenly Bodies Butter Cream with vanilla absolute, cocoa absolute (yes, you really can get natural chocolate perfume), tangerine and sweet orange so it smells rather like a chocolate orange cheesecake but it does taste like soap so when you put it in the fridge please don’t put it right next to the edible creamy temptations. We would hate it to be wasted. For the best effect smooth it all over the outside of your body. You’ll smell like an angel and your skin will feel as soft as gossamer.

Butter Creams
Creamy Cakes of Glycerine Soap made in huge buckets and hand-rolled in petals, chocolate, cocoa butter and other unexpected ‘packaging’, our butter creams look like huge helpings of luxury dessert. At room temperature they start out smooth, soft and slippery, but if you’re the sensation-seeking type you can choose to chill or freeze them to turn them into blocks of invigoratingly refreshing shower soap. Butter Creams are a luxurious blend of 15% soap – enough to get you clean but not make masses of non-essential lather – and 85% natural, skin softening oils and butters, glycerine, plant infusions and essential oils. Use them for summery soft skin.

Lush Times: We’ve developed a cream to keep your bits firm and supple. This blend of cold-pressed, organic oils can keep your knockers, decolletage, stomach and bottom in top nick. The tightening action of meadowsweet and the fragrant, floral boo-kay of orange blossom and rose will give you the loveliest jubblies in town. Cushdy!

This smells like honey and orange flower to me more than anything. It’s lovely. It’s not greasy or anything. And it really does seem to firm things up.

Noubar

 

Lush Times Online: Then the day got even better! Mo pulled the covers off to strip bare her brand new Palm Oil Free Sexy Noubar Soap! It’s one of those “But it looks so delicious, surely i could just take a tiny bite…” soaps that are her speciality. To be fair it does look rather like nougat, what with all those crushed pistachios to give you an exfoliating scrub. Dont do it. Just wash with it. To give it another posh confectionary touch, Mo’s given it a Turkish rose absolute fragrance, with coffee and a hint of smokey vetivert. It’s long name is to remind everyone of the campaign to stop primary forests being destroyed replaced with palm plantations; profitable for the owners but disastrous for the local people and wildlife and suicidal for our shared environment. We don’t just campaign, we act. Join in! And remember, wash with it, no chewing!

Ingredients:Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Rapeseed oil; Sunflower oil; Coconut oil (Brassica napus; Helianthus annuus; Cocos nucifera), Chopped Peanuts (Arachis hypogaea), Chopped Almonds (Prunus dulcis), Chopped Walnuts (Juglans regia), Sodium Hydroxide, Perfume, Titanium Dioxide, Pistachio Nuts (Pistacia vera), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Vetivert Oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Cedarwood Oil (Cupressus funebris), Sodium Chloride, Geraniol, *Citronellol, Colour 42045 * Occurs naturally in Essential Oils

It’s a beautiful green color, and it’s nutty, but i’m not thrilled with all the
nuts.

Hot Java

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cinnamon Sticks (Cinnamomum cassia), Perfume, Ginger Oil (Zingiber officinale), Cinnamon Powder (Cinnamomum cassia), Ginger Powder (Zingiber officinale), Coriander Oil (Coriandrum sativum), Ginger Absolute (Zingiber officinale), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Juniperberry Oil (Juniperus communis), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), D&C Red No. 33

This is/was Lush’s spicy ballistic and it smells like clove, cinnamon, and ginger. It’s a good staple ballistic for the cold weather months for most every Lushie I’ve ever read.  To me It needed some depth. It was very acidic, and astringent, like tea is.  It’s more bitter then i would’ve imagined. I just wish it could’ve been sweeter, just a teeny weeny bit.  There is cinnamon bark in the ballistic which drift around in the water but Hot Java isn’t spicy enough in my opinion to be on it’s own. It’s nothing like Lush’s “Marathon” bubble bar, which was really spicy. After I used my five up, I never bought one again.
Hot Java was DCd in 2007. It was in regular production for about 1 1/2 years.

LushHotJava

Lush Times 2006 description: Jump into a Hot Java bath every time you need warming up. It’s for cold days . so that’s most of them . or days when you’ve got a cold or when you.ve been out in the cold and need warming up right through. It’s good for when you’re feeling creaky after exercising too. Run a warm bath, drop in the Hot Java and let the spices soak right in. There’s warming ginger oil, warming ginger powder and some warming ginger absolute too. Very warm! Powdered cinnamon is traditionally used to relieve aches, ylang ylang relaxes your muscles and juniper berry oil is said to help relieve stiff joints. A week in the tropics would be lovely but a Hot Java will do nicely.
