Melomint

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Tartaric acid, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Peppermint oil, Cocamide DEA, Flax seed oil, Cypress Oil, Perfume, Gardenia Extract, Chlorophyll, Color.

My review is from 2006, and i feel the same way about it in 2016.

Okay. I’m so amazed with Melomint bubble bar. And I’m amazed at “Summer” on the uk forum for ever having the patience with us to again and again try to get our collective together to vote for it and (thank heavens) finally having it win this time. It looks like a watermelon…in technicolor. It turns the water a beautiful light red/dark coral color. (I’m taking a pic of the water next bath). It smells like spearmint (not sweet mouthwash-y peppermint). It’s refreshing as all get out when the temperature rises in Summer. And what is up with the little watermelon seeds? Cute! I think it’s darn near perfect, bravo Lush.

It is strong enough of a mint to stand alone, and the water color is so unique for a Lush product that I wouldn’t want to change it. 😀 If you like Lush’s “Ice Hotel” bubble bar you’ll love this I think. It’s the same minty freshness just without the lavender. And the cypress really works here. It helps sort of ground it without even being noticeable. Wow.

LT description: If you like spearmint chewing gum you’ll likely have a weakness for this bubble bar. The mint, cypress and chlorophyll provides relief to tired and aching bodies at the end of a hard day, and with the look and shape of a slice of watermelon, this bubble bar is a beauty.

This one surprised me at how yummy, strong and wonderful this lemony buttercream is. I have dry skin so even though the smell is wonderful it dries my skin a bit more than the others, probably because it’s made for oilier skin. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like the scent.

Lush 2006 description: If you have oily skin with a tendency to go spotty then grab a slice or two of this and start washing all over on a daily basis. Fresh lemon juice is a beautiful cleanser with anti-microbial properties and it has a stimulating effect on the skin too. Irish Moss isn’t what it sounds like; it’s a skin-softening seaweed packed with minerals to get the best out of skin in need of a full service. Softening cocoa and coconut butters make sure that even with all this deep cleansing going on, you’re going to feel smooth and soft as you step out of the shower.

Here’s a demo video i made of this buttercream
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.

Skin Sin

Skin Sin 100g £3.25p

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Glycerine, Stearic Acid, Tagettes Oil (Tagettes glandulifera), Tangerine Oil (Citrus reticulata), Chamomile Oil (Anthemis nobilis), Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida), Perfume, Triethanolamine, Cetearyl Alcohol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

Lush.a.Lot’s Review: Skin Sin is similar to Lush’s discontinued “Cherie Ripe” massage bar. It’s a lighter scent then Cherie Ripe message bar or Snap the Whip or even Potion. When I first put it on, it was cherry, in a majorly yummy way. Now that it’s rubbed in and stuff it smells like light soft cherry and just a touch of that fruity currant smell.  I guess I’m just lucky with these latest round of new products because this has absolutely no acrid currant-cat pee smell on me whatsoever as some say it does. Not in the least.  Skin Sin is beautiful. It’s just a lushious black currant creamy raspberry scent. This is a nice lighter scented summer body lotion that is quickly absorbed like “Potion”, and it’s also like “Potion” in consistency. I could actually wear this to work and not be worried about it being to “Lushy” or too “Strong”.

Lush Description: Skin Sin started life as a truly beautiful cream which made our skin feel good all over. We used almond oil to sink deep down into the skin and give longer lasting benefits (not just a nice smell and a feeling which lasts half and hour like some chemical-raddled creams do). We added nourishing cocoa butter and humectant vegetable glycerine, soothing tagettes and chamomile oils. The trouble was with this gloriously effective cream, that its effective, dependable mix of essential oils made it smell all a bit too worthy. We wanted it to behave perfectly but to smell wicked. So Mark added a twist of rich, fruity cherry, which you smell more strongly as the earnest oils settle down and do their good works. It’s a bit like having Angelina Jolie join your school’s fundraising committee.

Lush.a.Lot’s Review: This was a great cleanser for sensitve skinned or dry skinned people. The cucumber is gentle and skin did not feel tight or dry after using this, it felt clean and moisturized.

Lush Times 2000 description: Cool as a cucumber and calm as chamomile, our gentle Spring Cleanser will soften your skin while cleaning your face. Fennel is excellent for dull or oily skins and is even rumoured to keep wrinkles at bay! Oakmoss, used as a medicine by Native Americans, adds an earthy perfume and works as a natural antiseptic. Violet leaf stimulates the circulation and is used as a remedy to relieve headaches! Use it in the morning and at night to cleanse and refresh your skin.

This has the same scent as Sparkly Pumpkin bubble bar, or rather Sparkly pumpkin has the scent of Mr. Punch soap 🙂

Lush Times: Celebrate Christmas with a Punch! What’s a Christmas Eve party without loads of fruity, boozy punch? Not much fun, we’d say! Packed full of gin, lime oil and blackcurrant absolute to tone the skin, this colourful soap round was inspired by all the mirth and magic of a Mexican punch bowl brimming with fresh fruit.
