Lush Times: Just because we’re bringing this product out for Mother’s Day, it doesn’t mean we expect mums to do all the washing-up! Quite the opposite, we think mums do far too much washing-up as it is, so we’ve invented this in the hopes it will encourage other members of the family to get stuck in and lighten her load.
Simply fill your sink with hot water and give our fairy a good swish around, making lots of soapy bubbles. There’s a patent pending on this fab new invention, which makes an amazing green alternative to all those plastic washing-up liquid bottles that end up in landfill.
The washing-up fairy is scented with lemon and much kinder on your hands than standard washing up liquid. You can even use the leftover water to give your plants a drink after the dishes are done.
3 out of 5 rating. See my demo video of this to see how it lather and why it breaks, etc below. This has the popular ‘Carrot‘ fragrance, made with buchu oil and Bergamot.
Lush description : “What’s up doc? Whether you’re late for an important date, feeling a bit miffed, or you just need a little recharging, you’re sure to be jumping for joy when cleansing fresh carrot infusion and carrageenan extract reveals your velveteen skin.”
Lush says “Wash with this jolly jelly, and zesty lemon and bergamot oils will leave you feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed.
Simply flop it out and stroke it over your face. Alternatively, rub between the hands to get it frothy.”
3 out of 5 rating. This has the ‘Bunch of carrots’/’The Carrot’ soap/Snowman’ scent made with buchu, bergamot and lemon. It tears from being heavy if you try to wash your face with the whole piece. So you tear pieces off as you go. The individual pieces are a fairly firm jelly consistency surprisingly. Lastly, one piece lasts FOREVER, even if you wash your face every day.
This is such a pretty ballistic. It smells of vanilla, neroli, lavender and tonka bean. I just didnt’ like this ballistic at all when I first had it in a bath. But after using it again, wow, it’s fruity, and girly, and a tad foody, all at the same time. The orangey- neroli is there, the vanilla, the lavender. Water that is pretty medium dark pink. And wait, there are candy hearts and tiny heart confetti made out of soap too? And a tiny amount of magenta colored glitter at the bottom? Why didn’t I like this again? a 4 star rating.
Lush Times 2006 Description: Darlings, this is the ultimate in fuchsia pink baths. Four candy flowers top this marvel of utter pinkness and, as it fizzes furiously, it unleashes a shower of pink confetti into the bathwater. We’re using our brand new favourite tonka bean essential oil because it smells so wickedly fabulous, darlings! It also helps you to get in touch with your deeper emotions. Do be careful whom you meet for lunch just after you bathe! We don’t want to go eleasing our deeper emotions all over the starter and upsetting the other ladies, do we? (Or do we?).
In 2010 this changed to a new shape – becoming the same size as 90g ballistics like the lush Butterball bath bomb is.
Here’s a demo video i made of this bath bomb in the tub close up
Review: You have to get a fresh one. When you first smell this you become knocked out, in a good way. I LOVE this fresh, lemony, herbal smell. LOVE! It’s so lemony (but not in a fake or yukky Lemon Pledge way) that you can not believe it. This beautiful scent is made with Litsea Cubeba oil this plant is also known as the “May Chang” herb, it’s akin to lemongrass and it’s lovely, strong, bright, lemony smell. I just went on and on about the lovely, strong but real smell of them when I first got them. Such a refreshing scent as to be incredible…. The only drawback with the Lotta Iotta ballistic is that for some reason it’s loses half it’s glorious scent in the water. That’s the only reason this rating goes to a 3.5. Lotta Iotta is nice and softening though and soothing just like it says. I loved it because I have dry itchy skin in the winter time. It’s so softening and soothing to skin. Probably because of the oatmeal that is inside the ballistic, you can see the oats. Pity this didn’t make it for longer and that the scent didn’t stay longer as well.
Lush Times Mid-Summer 2003 description: The Lotta Iotta contains a lot of iota seaweed. ‘So why is this significant, other than to make a rather bad pun?’, you may ask. Well, in water, powdered iota seaweed extract dissolves into a soft gel that makes your bath water smooth and sensuous. It’s also a very nutritious plant, full of minerals. If that weren’t enough it also helps to soften the skin, as do the whole oats we put in there. As if that weren’t enough, we also scent this particularly luxurious Ballistic with a citrussy pack of skin-toning, mind-refreshing get-up-and-boogie essential oils, including invigorating lemongrass and revitalizing litsea cubeba, so with the Lotta Iotta you have the ideal energizing, reviving bath for getting both your mind and body ready for a day’s work or an evening out.
A cousin of ‘Mumkin’ and ‘Pumkin’ this pastel colored beauty was Made for Japan white day.
This is pretty rare as far as Lush products go, in addition to Japan for a limited time this has only been made for one day, in the Uk, online only in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen.
If and when this ever comes out again i’m definitely it rly getting at least one, because it’s so damn CUTE!
I’m so glad I can actually Use mine now since we’re getting a chance to buy new ones!
Lush said this is the same scent as their ‘Mumkin’ bubble bar: bergamot, lemon and Violet. Which is the same scent as their ‘Egg Hunt’ soap, which is the same as the ‘Razzle Dazzle’ bath oil and their ‘Cupid’ bath bomb. It’s a violet floral scent, that is only the slightest bit sweet, and has a fruity edge to it. Kind of a berryish type fruity.
