Here’s my weekly video reviewing next week’s Lush Kitchen products. I have short cuts/time stamps in the video description box for each product in my video.
Review: It smells heavenly like real café latte. Once it hits the water however it loses that wonderful scent. Pity. Folks complain about the coffee going on the bottom of the tub and sticking you in the toosh but I’ve never had that happen. I love the yummy smelling “froth” that forms at the top. I need one now…but Lush DCd it in 2002.
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Ground Coffee, Dried Soya Milk.
Lush Times 1999 description: For all the coffee-holics out there, here’s the Lush Caffe Latte, a wake-up bath with a serving of real coffee and a frothy white top. Run your bath, drop in the Caffe Latte and with its delicious, Italian coffee shop aroma, you could almost be wandering through the streets of Florence. To top it off, your bath really will have a fluffy white cap on it, as the frothing Caffe Latte will make its own creamy foam for your bath. What a great way to stat your day and caffeine free too!
Review: This is a smaller bomb like Butterball and Waving Not Drowning are. It is minty and chocolatey and nice but it’s not as strong as I would like. It’s a minty green color with little flecks of chocolate throughout. If the mint and the chocolate scents were stronger this would be a really great. It needs to be a regular sized ballistic. But I gave it four stars anyway because it was original. Chocolate mint things that go nice with the Chocolate Meltdown ballistic would be the chocolately minty “After 8:30” massage bar, “Mask of Magnaminty” facial mask, “Freeze” shower gel or “13 Rabbits” bath melt or shower gel.
Ingredients: bicarb, citric acid, dark chocolate, cocoa butter, perfume, spearmint oil, peppermint oil, galbanum oil, shea butter, gardenia extract, colour 61585
Lush Times Summer 1999 description:
Invented by the UK managers, this diet-sized bomb is a mint chocolate bath time delight with the fragrance of After 8:30. Little pieces of chocolate bath melt are released from its compact form as it fizzes away, scenting the bathroom with stimulating mint. Good for the skin and great for the figure.
Lush Times Spring 2000 description: GIMME, GIMME, GIMME A CHOCOLATE MELT BOMB (before midnight that is). It’s chocolatey – so chocolatey – but you can have as many as you want and you won’t put on a single calorie. Oozing with dark chocolate, cocoa butter (excellent for softening the skin), spearmint (said to stimulate the mind and relieve fatigue), peppermint (reputed to soften the skin and good for any aches and pains), galbanum (reported to calm and ground you), and shea butter (just for the business of softening skin). And, of course, not only does it work wonders on your mind and body, but it smells just heavenly. So put one in the bath, turn yourself in to an after dinner mint and get a friend to nibble on you.
Lush Kitchen Menu April 10-14 Reviews
Herws my weekly Lush Kitchen Menu reviews for April 10-14
5 out of 5 rating
See my 6 minute demo, description & review video of mine below.
The 101 Salvations is the original name of this shower cream. I got this from a wonderful lushie who one year went to one the annual Lush Uk Creative Showcase event. There are always tons of experimental products at the Creative Showcase, and if one is lucky enough to attend the chances of getting to buy something that the public wont get to buy for another couple of years is nice.
So when they decided to sell this shower gel to the oublic in stores they changed the name to Oaty Creamy Dreamy.
A shower cream which shares the popular Lush ‘Dream Cream’ body lotion scent and ingredients. With calming lavender, and Chamomile, and calming oatmilk. It has more moisturizing properties than the typical shower gels that Lush has always sold. As with a few of their shower ‘creams’ this has Cocoa butter and olive oil.
Same soothing ingredients as their lotion below for dry, cracked, itchy, red, sensitive skin.
