Smelling like the Lush “Sparkly Pumpkin’ this bubble bar was introduced in Halloween 2011/2012 if memory serves, it came before the sparkly pumpkin and before mumkin. “Pumpkin’ has the same scent as “Figs and Leaves’ soap according to a Lush Oxford street employee..

Lush bomb

3 out of 5 rating

Has the Lush “Karma’ fragrance

Video coming soon

I liked this colorful Karma scented ballistic. It was very bright green and yellow because Lush thought it would be good to have a bath bomb in the same colors as the Lush logo was originally. It made a lovely bright yellow-green color in the water.

Ingredients: 180g  Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Lavendin Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Pine Oil (Pinus), Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogan flexuosus), Elemi Oil (Canarium commune), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 42050.

 

2002 Lush North America Lush Times description: There are only a few carefully chosen products to which we give the name ‘Lush’. The Lush Bath Bomb is the only one currently available; we named it because it encapsulates Lushness. It is green and yellow like a logo (with a little logo ribbon in case you hadn’t noticed) and it smells of our Karma perfume, which is pretty much what our shops smell like. You can find out more about Karma by reading the back page but essentially we’d like to fill the world with Karma fragrance; we’re taking one step closer by encouraging you to bathe in it.

Cloak of Invisibility

2.5 out of 5 rating

Only because i do not like the scent. However, it is quite beautiful, which is why this isn’t a 1 out of 5 rating. .

See my demo video of this in the tub, close up doing it’s thing.  It’s lovely movements, twirling gold and red, just like the spinning cloak.

If you just feel like disappearing for a little while, slip into the bath with this seductively relaxing bath oil and cloak yourself in floral jasmine absolute and mood-brightening ylang ylang oil. Before the doorbell rings, the dog barks or the children shout, pulling you out of your calm oasis and back into reality, enjoy nourishing Majorcan almond oil hydration… Who said that!

If you don’t like the 2014 Lush Valentine’s ‘Floating Flower’ bath bomb, you won’t like this one, because they both share their scent. It’s the “Flying Fox’ scent family that this belongs to.  I really don’t like the Jasmine scented ‘Flying Fox’.  Because i don’t like a lot of jasmine.  But loads of people like this one. It’s very pretty.

Here’s a demo and review video i did of this shower gel.

Lush made a limited edition Christmas 2014 product called “Icing on the Cake‘ which shares the same Ponche scent.

Magic Wand

5 out of 5 rating. 


It’s not particularly moisturizing but that smell is SO good!

This smells SO incredibly yummy.

Magical folk and muggles alike will love lathering up with this soap imbued with a sweet, fruity perfume. Enzyme-rich pomegranate will leave your skin bewitchingly bright after you wash, and the detoxifying charcoal in the soap’s black outer layer will get you squeaky clean.’

Boo

2.5 out of 5 rating

Has the Lush ‘Ginger‘ scent.

See my demo video of this in the bath below

One spicy spirit

$5.50

I don’t like the scent of this at all.  It’s a bitter, ginger root floral. Lush has made many products with this scent as it is a popular scent with some folks.  I raised my rating up to a 2.5 because of how cute it is.  It’s said that this is a bath melt which also has some bubble bar properties in it so one can hold it in the tub faucet water stream, like a bubble bar.

Our luxurious Halloween bath melt might be one of the smallest treats in the range, but don’t let appearances fool you: this little ghost packs a seriously perfumed punch! Drop Boo into your bath water and watch it slowly go milky with moisturizing cocoa butter to give you hauntingly beautiful skin, perfumed with warming ginger and a bouquet of floral and citrus oils.

Metropolis

This is the prototype for the giant bath bomb that is called crystal ball.  Here’s a video I recorded of it in the tub. WOW

this below called Metropolis, a smaller version, was demonstrated at the Lush ‘Creative Showcase‘ event at Tobacco Docks on September 13 2016

Jack Constantine wanted to create a bath bomb-Metropolis- bath bomb, that lights up!

Inspired by city life and the scent smells kind of like ‘Sunny Day’ mixed with and earthy and green scent similar to Lush ‘Autumn leaves’ bath bomb  is how someone described it. The black/grey on it is meant to be the dust and dirt and smoke from the city.  I was told that there may have been a reference to the drug abuse found in cities as well, but that part isn’t verified.

Inside the hole is the colored light, and it activates when it comes in contact with the water.

I watched a demo of this and it looks so eerie, these different colors of light mixing with the water, it reminded me of that sort of rainbow sheen of colors that one sees on the top of a puddle of oil , except it’s moving!

Wash You Were Here

Here’s a video demo i made of this innovative shower body cleanser.  It’s made in the scent of the ‘Olive Branch” shower gel and “Pop in the Bath’ bubble bar.  It’s a fun idea, but it also works nicely.

Ingredients: Fresh honeydew melon pulp, cellulose, bergamot oil, lemon oil, orange flower, mandarin orange oil, sodium lauryl sulphate.

Lush description: “Dear Inventive Washers,

We’d love to meet you in the bath or shower. You bring the soundtrack, we’ll bring the soap.”

Here’s a family portrait’ i took, though some family members didn’t show up for the photo, but you can see them in the video (below this photo)

Satsuma

 

Lush description Facebook Sept 2016

‘A citrusy chaos of brightening, Sicilian mandarin and orange flower absolute is being pressed into furiously-fizzy Satsuma bath bombs A-peeling aromas await…’

These Orange bath bombs are only going to be available in a couple of gift sets in stores in Uk and North America, Australia, Germany, etc. However, the online mail order website called lush.co.uk/kitchen sold them for one day only.  When i get mine i’ll add more photos and i’ll do a demo video and add it here as well. 

file-oct-25-10-09-20-am

Lush description: Peel off your clothes and pile into a terrifically tangy bath with a generous squeeze of fresh satsuma juice. Mandarin oil, sourced from the sun-dappled groves of Sicily, rejuvenates your mind and shakes the spirits from any mid-Christmas lethargy. There’s no need to get hung up waiting for your Christmas stocking when you can find the same citrus refreshment in handy, fizzing form right here.

List of ingredients

Santasaurus

4 out of 5 rating

See my demo video below

This is a cute re-usable bubble bar wand in the scent of Lush popular Honey I Washed the Kids fragrance. It’s a cute green dinosaur wearing a red santa hat. I couldn’t believe how many bubbles this made with barely leaving the water run on it for only a minute!
I can see how this would be economical because one could get two or three bubble baths out of it.

Lush says “Roaring fires signal the beginning of Christmas. Chilly toes wait eagerly for them. Blankets view them with a little jealous trepidation. They mean hot chocolate by the mugful, spicy punch by the tankard, games of charades, onesies, tinsel-covered trees, repeats on tv, mince pies and dinosaurs. And roaring fires aren’t just found in the fireplace; they’re found when you hold this Santasaurus under a raging tap and watch the bubbles of joyous Brazilian orange and fun, fruity bergamot oil fly out.”file-oct-13-1-39-46-pm

Never Mind the Ballistics

5 out of 5 rating

See my demo video of this below

Never Mind the Ballistics

Not to be confused with another bath bomb that is exclusive to the Lush creative showcase event, which looks similar but it’s different and it’s called “Over and Over.  Never Mind the Ballistics has a colored cocoa butter mixture that is sprayed on both sides of the bomb.  The Lime, Orange, and Frankincense.  Frankincense is one of my favorite scents.

Lush2016 description: ‘These aren’t ingredients for anybody else except for yourself. Lime and sweet wild orange oils are fresh and peachy on the nose, exciting the senses and shaking up your mood. There’s no time for apathy in the bath, so this anarchic bath bomb fizzes and rolls and spews colour with no holds barred energy. Fair Trade cocoa butter melts alongside fresh bananas to soften both the water and your skin. God save the clean; this deserves a replay.’

file-oct-13-1-50-49-pm

I absolutley love this bath bomb.  I love the frankincense, i love passion fruit-like scent of the fruity notes. I love the creaminess of the banana, i love the color.  It’s more moisturizing.

Autumn Leaves

4 out of 4 rating – se my tub demo and review video of this below

$6.95

A beautiful fall inspired bath bomb in the shaper of a leaf, and having the scent of Lush popular “Grass‘ scent.

This gorgeous Winter 2016 bath bomb has an earthy scent of cut grass and is made with sandalwood, bergamot, neroli, and maple sap. It’s got a beautiful green shimmer on it.

The colors in this bath bomb remind one of Autumn, with the green, orange and gold colors. This is a slow fizzer, and watching the beautiful colors swirling around me was beautiful.

This stunning bath bomb brings the beauty of nature’s autumnal metamorphosis right into your tub. Watching it dissolve in the bath is like watching the trees turn colors, only in fast forward! Breathe in the grounding yet uplifting perfume, full of bergamot, neroli and sandalwood, and brace yourself for winter’s arrival.
