Lovestruck

See my demo video below 😄lovestruck_bubble_bar_spring_

Words can’t describe how much you love them, but emojis filled with lemon and geranium sure can.
If you heart bubbles, crumble under running water – you’re sure to Like the result. Warning: These refreshing citrusy suds may make you feel Emoji-nal!


I think Lovestruck smells like I Am a Radiant Being minus the Rose oil. Or like Rose Jam without the Rose. The Petitgrain brings an herbal note to the geranium and lemon. 

I’ve read that many do not like the smell. 

 

Lush Bath Oils-New

See my bath oil video demo list of 20 new Lush bath oils. I’ve done video demos of all 19. The links to each of those tub demo videos are in the below list

A fabulous way to get a good amount of our favorite fragrances in a small package.  It’s small but it makes a gorgeous show in the tub.  Adding color and in some cases shimmer.  The fragrances are stronger and last longer on the skin than in other things like bath bombs and bubble baths.

I have all of them, so as i use each one i’ll make videos and take photos that you can watch via the links below.

Bling Crosby

4 out of 5 rating

lushblingcrosby2008b

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, FD&C Red No. 4, 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), Glitter

 

This is a beautiful bubble bar with it’s orangey-gold glitter.  It has the scent of Lush’s “Karma” fragrance which is orangey, not sweet at all, earthy with patchouli, and a bit of pine. A unisex scent. It leaves a pale orange colored water and TONS of bubbles. There is also glitter in the water. The glitter doesn’t stick on you like the Karma melt but mostly gets washed down the drain if you use a squirt of shower gel in the water. Bling Crosby is so pretty and festive.

 

LT 2006 Description: An easy glistening, soothing orange spice Bubble Bar for a smoother Christmas. Crumble under running bath water for mounds of fragrant bubbles

Christmas Cake

4 out of 5 rating

This is such a yummy smelling soap. It smells like sweet almond fondant icing. I did not expect to like this soap because the ingredients don’t make it sound yummy…but the way it smells -YUM.

It’s not particularly moisturizing but i don’t care it smells good enough to eat. How do they make it smell like cake? It’s got a warm, nutty smell as well.

 

Ingredients: 2837 Christmas Cake Slice £2.95 Water, Rapeseed Oil; Sunflower Oil; Coconut Oil, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Coco-Sulfate, Aloe Vera Extract, Almond Oil, Vetivert Oil, Cedarwood Oil, Cinnamal, *Linalool, Colour 42090, Gardenia Extract Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Titanium Dioxide.

 

Lush Times Xmas 2008: Lush’s take on Christmas cake. If you’re planning to throw a huge Christmas party and you want to give everybody a present to take away with them, how about buying a massive great Christmas Cake Soap and slicing it up into hundreds of pieces to give all your guests? We also sell it in bar-of-soap slices, which we cut off the big Cake for you. It smells like cake and more – more like a slice of Christmas cake on a plate next to an open fire of fragrant, smouldering wood logs to keep the chill away. Soothing, smoky vertivert essential oil and organic aloe vera, help your Christmas Cake Slice to keep your skin calm over Yuletide, even if everything else goes crazy.

Christmas Cracker

3.5 out of 5 rating

Ingredients: Sodium bicarbonate, cream of tartar, sodium laureth sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, perfume, cocamide dea, orange oil, cinnamon leaf oil, chlorophyllin, color, candy holly leaf.

 

lushchristmascracker2004watermark

This is a half red/half green colored Christmas bubble bar with orange oil and cinnamon leaf oil.  If you use just the red part the water turns pink and if you use the green part the water turns green. There’s a tiny candy holly leaf in the middle (it might be edible, but it tastes like soap because it’s embedded in the bar.  Using the whole thing makes the water a kind of a dark red/brown color.

Lush Times 2004 Description: Wake yourself up with a bang! Wake yourself up on a cold and frosty morning (or a dull, dark, damp one) with a cracking Christmas bubble bath. It’s out classic cinnamon and orange, crowing rooster alarm clock scent to ping your eyelids open and jump start your brain. Crumble the seasonally red and green bar under your running bath water as you sip your spiced coffee. Get in, enjoy the reviving warmth and don’t forget to read the corny motto which we’ve stuck inside it, just like a real cracker.

Cardamom and Coffee

4 out of 5 rating

See my demo and review video below.

file-dec-04-6-31-37-pm

 

I adore cardamom.  I mean i really like it A LOT, so keep that in mind.

Cardamom and coffee has cardamom, which is a fragrant spice, some of you might recognize it’s lovely scent in Chai tea.

At first spray, it has a absolutely mind-blowing yumminess factor to it.  
Also, this perfume has a lot of throw.

The rose oil in this is not a primary player here.  It adds a lovely but light floral note.  I don’t smell it and say “I smell rose”.

The coffee isn’t primary either.  Right now anyway the cardamom is the most primary, and i couldn’t be happier about that.

Unfortunately, at 30 minutes the scent diminished quite a lot.  It’s just a remnant of it’s former self.  This is the only reason i give this a 4 out of 5 rating. If the scent stayed as strong as when i first sprayed it, this would surely be a 5 out of 5 rating.

 

 
 

Amelie Mae

5 out of 5 rating  See my review video below

file-dec-04-4-22-59-pm

This is delightful.  At first spray, the bright lavender is the primary note i smell.  It’s nice and strongly scented.

At 10 minutes the lavender scent dimnished greatly and now the rose oil scent is present, and to me it resembles the Lush “Rose Jam’ scent slightly, just slightly.  And there is a raspberry note present.  Quite nice.  It’s not a candyish raspberry nor a fake raspberry scent.  It remains bright and even sparkly.  it almost reminds me of raspberry soda.
At 30 minutes the lavender has disappeared completely. However, the rose,  and especially the raspberry are more present than at first spray.  In face i’d say the fragrance has gotten sweeter, in a good way.  Now it’s turned into a sticky sweet raspberry rose jam scent on the specific place on my arm that i initially sprayed it.  It’s warmer, thicker rose and raspberry now and less sparkly.  The sparkliness isn’t gone though, it’s just less so as it dries down, turning more into a “yum” kind of scent.  I can get what Simon Constantine’s daughter Amelie Mae is like, sparkly, fresh, sweet, young, and delightful.

I’m glad i was able to acquire one of these on Ebay. The crazy money i spent on it was worth it.

I’m Home

3.5-5.0 rating.

See my demo review video of this perfume below.
file-dec-04-4-06-56-pm

This is one of a 7-10 new perfumes in Lush Gorilla IV series, which will be sold to the public in the very near future.

This perfume was meant to remind one of coming home after a hard day and the way a home smells comforting, kind of like a mub of hot chocolate.  This perfume has vanilla and Cocoa in it.  When first sprayed, i can definitely smell the cocoa, it smells yummy.

On the dry down it gets kind of muddy, but once it dries completely the cocoa note returns.  It smells warm, like coming home to a warm home with someone cooking something yummy.

 

Once it dries completely however the scent dissipates very much.  This perfume in particular goes away quicker than the other Gorilla perfumes. I solved that by just spraying it two or three times on me, or spraying it a few times throughout the day.

In the video i smell it on my arm at wet spray, drying down, and total dry down.
