Happy Accident

Happy Accident is an “Oops” bubble bar made in the UK in Early 2007. It has a lovely peach pink color. It smells to me like Amandopondo bubble bar as it does have a rose and citrus scent, and then mixed it with he scent of Lush ‘Happy’ bubble bar. Then again, it does smell a bit like the Lush bath bomb ‘Absolute Delight’. Not exactly positive what that lovely scent is…

 

Plum Rain 


5 outof5 rating.

I LOVE this shower gel. This is a New Shower gel that I received at Lush Oxford Street, made with Umeboshi plums, petigrain, orange, and osmanthus.

Here’s a close up demo and review video i made of this shower gel at the sink

It’s Fruity, slightly sweet, and almost smells like peaches and apricots, but its from the scent of the osmanthus.

There’s a pretty shimmer to the gel.

A couple of people on the Uk forum say it smells sort of like grape soda to them.

Karma dusting powder

LushKarmapowderduckie

 

Ingredients: Chick Pea Flour (Cicer arietinum), Cornstarch (Zea mays), Calamine Powder, Marigold Flowers (Calendula officinalis), Magnesium Carbonate, Perfume, Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Lavendin Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Pine Oil (Pinus), Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogan flexuosus), Elemi Oil (Canarium commune),

Lush description: Karma has a way of reinventing itself and appearing in different forms whilst remaining recognizable to its followers. In this case it appears as a cloud of fine powder that settles all over your body leaving an aura of patchouli and orange oils, calming the skin with calamine.

Dr Peppermint

LushDr

LushDr-1

 

Ingredients: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Water (Aqua), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Spearmint Oil (Mentha viridis), Black Pepper Oil (Piper nigrum), Neroli Oil (Citrus amara), Perfume.

Review: This is a straight up, real smelling Peppermint.  Not sweet.  Bracingly pepperminty though.  It feels cool on the scalp and is good to wash your hair when it’s hot or when you need a little wake up. I loved to use it in the Summer, very refreshing.

Lush 2001 description: You can tell when the Dr. Peppermints have been unwrapped in a Lush shop because the scent of peppermint wafts all through the place and off down the street, drawing people in by their noses. This is a bar for baldies, those who have noticed a certain upward advancement in the forehead department. It is made with essential oils to stimulate the scalp including peppermint, which is also used as a remedy for shock and fainting (both of which can occur when men notice they’re going bald). Relaxing neroli oil is there to stop them caring whether they have hair or not.

 

Tuca Tuca

This has the same scent as the Lush shower gel called “Don’t Rain on my Parade”.

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter , Shea Butter , Perfume, Fresh Rose Petal Extract , Cassie Absolute , Vanilla Absolute , Sandalwood Oil , Vetivert Oil , Violet Leaf Absolute , Ylang Ylang Oil  *Benzyl Salicylate, *Cinnamal, *Coumarin, *Eugenol, *Geraniol, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Farnesol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Titanium Dioxide,Colour 77019, Colour 77007

Lush Times: GRAB YOUR PARTNER…It has a soothing extract of fresh rose petals, moisturising cocoa and shea butters, and a seductive violet scent that flirts with sensuality. It’s a massage experience that will do all the work for you. Grab the bar, dim the lights, and tuca tuca! After the song inspired such raucous enthusiasm, it seemed almost absurd not to have a Tuca Tuca Massage Bar to get people touching each other.

Marzibain

 

Review: This was made to smell like “Snowcake” soap. It’s a scrumptious scent of light roses and almond paste, like Marzipan cookies. The ony things I use with a Marzibain bubble bar (so as not to sully it’s sublimlely scrummy scent) is “Snowcake” soap of course and also like to use it and then spritz on some Snowcake perfume.

Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, cream of tartar, sodium laureth sulfate, lauryl betaine, perfume, cocamide DEA, benzoin resinoid, cassie absolute, rose absolute, whole almond.

2001 Yuletide LT description: This Marzibain is one of those Lush specials for people with a sweet tooth who don’t want to eat too much sugar; it’s a sweet “cake” of bubble bath from the bubble bar that smells just like marzipan with the added bonus fragrance of rose and fruity cassie buds (same scent as Snowcake and Big Ed). For piles of white, fluffy, marzipan scented bubbles crumble the whole thing into the running bathwater; it will satisfy your craving for sweet things with no guilt whatsoever.

From the 2002 Yuletide LT: The Marzibain is back, smelling like extra tasty marzipan, the same as last year but not as crumbly like almond icing, more solid like my grandma’s Christmas almond buns (you wuoldn’t have wanted to eat one of these either). You pronounce it to rhyme with marzipan (bain, French for bath = funny Lush pun) Marziban not Marzibane, or else it’s not funny at all is it?

Scent Family: Snowcake Perfume; Snowcake Shower Gel; Snowcake Soap; Snow On Snow Dusting Powder; Smitten Hand Cream; Oops! Almond Kisses Facial Moisturiser; Big Ed Yuletide Soap

Rose Queen

 

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Rose Absolute, Cistus Oil,Labdanum Resinoid, Tiger Lily Petals, Amaranth Flowers, Apple Blossom,Larkspur petals, *Citral, *Citronellol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Benzyl Alcohol,Benzyl Salicylate, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal, Colour 45410

Lush Times: Do you love Tisty Tosty, but are looking for a less serious more playful rose bath? Well this is the one. Instead of serious romantic adult thoughts – this is a run through a rose garden, with your hands brushing the tops of the bushes.

The scent is a light floral rosy accord, of rose absolute and geranium with amber notes of rock rose. The bathwater has a rosy pink glow with a sprinkling of tigerlily, apple blossom and larkspur petals adrift on the surface. Mo says this is a return to her old style ballistics; for times when you want nothing but an escape to simpler times of flowers, nature and innocent simplicity.

Since getting their OBEs, Mark and Mo have had lots of requests to attend events. But none so welcome as an invite to the annual festival at the parish church where Mark grew up, to crown this year’s Rose Queen. The icing on the cake came when Mark met the local vicar and discovered he was wearing our Breath of God fragrance – he then introduced Mark to his daughter, who was wearing our Imogen Rose fragrance! With serendipity like that, you have to come home and invent a product to mark the event.

Bada Bing Bada Boom

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerine, Red Wine, Thyme (Thymus vulgaris), Rose Petal (Rosa centifolia) and Lavender (Lavandula hybrida) Infusion, Propylene Glycol, Fresh Rose Petal Infusion (Rosa centifolia), Perfume, Carrageenan Extract, Synthetic Musk, Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), White Wine Vinegar, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Linalool, *Limonene, Methylparaben. * Occurs naturally in essential oils

Lush.a.Lot’s Review: This was the shower jelly made which smells like the “Sex Bomb” ballistic. It’s a heady floral scented jelly.

Lush Times 2005 description: Bada Bing Bada Boom Shower Jelly is the ultimate in cold showers. Its sensual scents (the same essential oils as Sex Bomb) are blended with red wine and an infusion of rose petals, soothing lavender and stimulating thyme herb. Grab the Bada Bing from the freezer, clean your body with its cool lather and inhale the calming (aphrodisiac) jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage perfumes. That should work just nicely.

Here’s a demo and review video i made of this jelly

Sonic Death Monkey

Here’s a demo and review i made on my youtube channel of Sonic Death Monkey


Ingredients:
 Coffee (Coffea arabica), Cocoa (Theobroma cacao) and Cerassie Infusion (Momordica charantia), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Betaine, Fresh Lime Juice (Citrus aurantifolia), Perfume, Hemp Oil (Cannabis sativa), Tangerine Oil (Citrus reticulata), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), *Limonene, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.* Occurs naturally in essential oils

 

Review: Okay. Those who know me know I am a freak about orange, I love orange. So, take that into consideration. Sonic Death Monkey was named after Jack Black’s band in the movie “Hi Fidelity”. God, or the higher power of the universe, is good, because there is such a thing as Sonic Death Monkey shower gel. I can’t believe how good this is. Yes, it smells like Lush’ “Whipstick” lip balm sure, but this is so much better. Oh my, it is a Terry’s chocolate orange, in shower gel form. Yeah, and orange zest, real orange zest. It’s the spicier zest of an orange, with chocolate. As good but different than the discontinued choclatey and ginger shower gel “13 Rabbits“. Lush made “Whipstick” lip balm, and “Heavenly Bodies” buttercream in this same scent.

 

Lush 2006 Description: There are many chocolate shower gels in the world and most of them, frankly, are horrid. They are nasty, gimmicky, cheap, synthetic things which smell like market stall chocolate Christmas decorations – horrid, as we were saying. For a while we resisted, not wanting to be tarnished by such a tawdry image, then we thought to ourselves, “We can do better than that, much better!” so we did. (Actually Noriko did it.) Oh what gloriously gloopy, sensual stuff Sonic Death Monkey turned out to be. It has seaweed gel make your hair and body feel soft; it’s scented with chocolate orange and tones you up with fresh lime, Caribbean coffee and herbal tea. (It’s named after Barry’s band in High Fidelity.) Cover yourself in chocolate orange and dig that crazy gravy.

Supernova

£2.50 Shipping Weight: 200gs

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Cognac Oil (Vitis vinifera), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), *Limonene, *Linalool, Paper Confetti, Colour 45410.* Occurs naturally in essential oils.

Description: Celebrate with a champagne cocktail bath: orange & cognac essential oils and a parade of pretty paper. Drop into a warm bath for fizz and fragrance.

Review: This has the immediately familiar, Sparkling grapefruity scent. . I am one of very few, who doesn’t really love the scent. It’s a pretty bathe bomb, but that’s about it. The bath bomb is visually striking and has a techni-color quality. This is one of lush’s “slow dissolving” ballistics, which means it lasts a long time melting and fizzing in the bath, unlike Lush’s regular ballistics which fizz and dissolve in about 5 minutes. This ballistic disperse multi-colored confetti as it dissolves, in every color of the rainbow.. The confetti floats down to the bottom of the tub in look colorful and whispy. There is also has some pink melty stuff in the bomb itself which as you can see makes a beautiful pink spiral pattern as it melts. Then it started….it started spinning round, and the reason for it’s name became clear to me. It’s trails of foam and the spinning and the colors in the middle from the paper looked like a SuperNova. For those of you who don’t like cleaning bit out of the tub, this ballistic is not for you. It was worth it to me as it was so pretty I had to try it at least once.

Notes: scent is the same as Lush “Celebrate’ boy lotion and “Celebrate’ jelly.

Notes: Champagne Supernova’s name was later changed to Supernova.

Iced Wine

5 out of 5 rating

 

Ingredients: Glycerine, Fresh Grape Infusion (Vitis vinifera), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Carrageenan Extract (Chondrus crispus), Ice Wine, Grapefruit Oil (Citrus paradisi), Bergamot Oil (Citrus aurantium bergamia), Buchu Oil (Barosma betulina), Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 45410, Methylparaben, Propylparaben
*Occurs naturally in essential oils

 

Lush Times: Ice Wine is a popular drink around the world, but it’s like catnip to the Canadians. It’s made by taking frost-bitten grapes from the vine and pressing them immediately, which produces a fruity and sweet dessert wine. When Helen tried the wine, she could taste mangoes, passion fruit and other tropical fruits. This tropical explosion inspired her to add real Ice Wine, along with fresh grape infusion, to a jelly base to create her own version of a tropical cocktail. Simon’s fruity fragrance was the icing on the cake. Keep it in the freezer for a refreshing wash.

Here’s a demo and review of this tropical fruit punch jelly

Description: Forum special – Spring 2009. “What can we say about this lady’s campaign to get her own way ?? You have all seen it.
We tried ignoring her, we tried patronising her, we tried taking out an injunction. But when all that failed, we simply had to accept that she is made of sterner stuff than us and we should just roll over and submit. So here it is – the badass assed gel you ever will see !! ”
