‘Morticia’ bath bomb from The Mad Bombers

This was a fun bath. Firstly, there are all kinds of rose petals inside and throughout this large bath bomb.

It also has a rose scent.

Next, its black as night.

I was a bit hesitant with how this would do in my tub, i.e. staining. However i had No need to worty. Clean up was a breeze.

Just for fun once i got out of this bath i let the water go down and filmed it, and then sped it up and made a video so you can really see how little color is left behind in my white tub.

I would absolutely buy anothrr one of these ‘Morticia’ bath bombs from The Mad Bombers. Its a large bomb, seems like its about 220-250g weight. The cost of it is $8.50

Heres a 1 minute video of it fizzing

here’s a 30 second video of what was left behind. Mostly rose petals left, Rinsed clean.

Little Pot of Energy

This is a solid/naked packageless body lotion exclusive to the LushLabs at lush.co.uk

While i did not like the previous naked body lotion ‘Once Upon a Time’ that lush made for Christmas 2017, this one, Little Pot of Energy, is different.

Its not oily nor greasy. Its a drier consistency than ive seen before. Almost how a dry deo goes on. Theres no tacky feeling when you apply it.

I like the smell. Its made with oranges and grapefruit, as i explain in my demo and review video below.

the bottom line is that this works for me. it moisturizes my skin without feeling oily, and it snells great.

i would actually use this everyday, and i might even buy another one.

Lush: Move mountains. Fight lethargy. Deliver a dose of vitalising citrus straight to the skin. It’s a bolt of lightening to the brain: a sweep of orange puree that’s electric sharp to sniff but smooth as butter on your body thanks to a base of Fair Trade Colombian cocoa butter. Supercharge your skin with a sweep of brightening orange and grapefruit pulp and reboot your mind with a perfume flavour so fresh you can nearly taste it. Motivation’s never been this mouthwatering.

Not Sleepy shower bomb

I give this a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is one of the #LushLabs exclusive, limited edition shower bombs. Not to be confused with the Lush Labs new ‘Atmospheres’ shower gels

This is not to be confused with a Lush shower emotibomb, which is placed on the shower floor.

No, these shower bombs are for washing with.

I do a wet demo of it here in the 56 second video sink demo below.

Lush Labs at lush.co.uk has made four difderent kinds/scents of these new shower bombs; sleepy, not sleepy, karma, and kowataskaati.

This one, not sleepy, is for waking up. Its got lemon, lime and orange oils in it which are said to promote alertness and mental clarity.

After asking what the scent wax i was told that Its a new scent that Mark Constantine made for this shower bomb.

The product is not cocoa butter based. It feels like a bath bomb. Maybe a firmer kind of bath bomb.

This will definitely last more than one shower.

The scent isn’t weak but its not very strong eithet.

The foam feels very nice. If you have sensitive skin just get some foam on your hands first, then apply to your body.

It rinsrs off very easily.

Then just towel yourself dry and thats it.

Its not gimmick-y, this seems to actually work with just adding water.

And its totally packageless.

Atmospheres shower gel

It’s unfortunate that this is a kind of pricey product because it’s exactly what lots of us have been asking lush for in terms of shower gels. Unlike those naked, solid shower gels, these ‘Atmospheres” shower gel spheres are a REAL shower gel consistency.  In fact its like a thicker, more luxurious shower gel.  It lathers loads and makes lots of sudsy foam lather.

There’s absolutely no packaging.

However because of it’s price I have to give this a 3 out of 5.

These are packageless shower gels, new and exclusive from the Lush Labs.

To me this is much easier to use than the naked shower gels that lush have made previously.

Lush says: Inside this nondescript, recycled box, powerful forces are at play. Four naked doses of therapeutic shower gel await, made with the finest perfumes to unlock your deepest desires. Shower yourself in love, money or joy – just remember to Let Go of the grudges, regrets or desires holding you back too.

Atmospheres are naked doses of shower gel that double up as a cosmic order of your choosing. Pinch the atmosphere between your fingers and tear open as you focus your mind on your goal, tipping the gel into your hand and washing all over. When you’re done lathering up, the seaweed layer can be washed down the plug or popped in the compost. The laws of attraction are at work so feel secure in the knowledge that your order has been placed.

These are fragile but not so fragile that you cant pick it up.

Lush says that its one showers worth of product but i can TOTALLY see how you can get two showers from this. There’s alot in here.

When done with the product we can safely let it go down the plug hole or throw it away because it’s biodegradeable.

In my video below i show how to pop it and what the consistency is.

However, the price is rather high to me.  It’s 12.00 gpb for four shower gels.  That’s $15.40 US dollars.

$4.50 gpb (or $3.75) for one shower.  Granted, I believe there are two showers worth in each one, but that’s still $2.25 per shower.

While I usually don’t count pennies, this id stick out to me as quite high.

There are four kinds;

Money (green) lime and green notes

Joy (yellow) citrus

Let Go (blue) made with lavender

Love (red) has the Lush Love fragrance, made with rose, and lemongrass.

Sleepy shower bomb

Wow. I’m going to give this a 5 out of 5.

Its not gimmicky, its a creamy foam consistency.

I pressed very hard on it when it was wet and it didn’t budge.  It’s not a ‘smooshy’ consistency. It’s firm, but what comes off of it slowly is foam.  It’s kind of like washing with the foam of a bath bomb, one of the creamier frothier bath bombs though.

This is nothing like their body conditioners, there’s no slippery, or goopy stuff in here.  No cocoa butter,  no oils.

Nor is this at all like their naked shower gels.

It doesn’t feel like it has cocoa butter in it (it doesn’t), and it smells good. It’s not too faint of a scent, but its not necessarily the strongest scented product either.

Its made with the Twilight scent.

It seems like one could certainly get multiple showers with this.  At LEAST two, maybe more.

I do a wet demo of this in my video below both in the shower and at the sink.

Under the Umbrella Tree

I would rate this bath bomb a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a cute bath bomb.   I love the tree shape of it.

This was made with the Lush “Breath of God’ fragrance.

The fragrance is a combination of two Lush scents “Inhale’ and ‘Exhale’.

There are masculine notes such as cedar wood, sandalwood,, and feminine notes such as rose. Together they form the classic Breath of God fragrance, which Lush has sold since 2008. Men would like it but women would like it too It’s both earthy and airy in the same fragrance.

Lush has made a bath bomb In the past called “Inhale Exhale‘ with a similar fragrance.

The bath bomb is a fast fizzes and makes a beautiful, not often seen, lime green water.  So uplifting and hopeful, like Spring.

 

lush Labs Haul, Reviews, and Demos!

Apparently Lush had to divide my order into two boxes.

So in this video i demo the ‘Atmospheres’ packageless shower gel, the ‘Under the Umbrella Tree’ bomb, ‘Little Pot of Energy’ naked body lotions.

Ill be receiving the shower bombs next week or so and will upload a similar video of those.

Ill be writing seperate pages with reviews on each of these products as well starting tonight and tomorrow.

This bath bomb has the Lush ‘Breath of God’ fragrance. It smells both woody and floral.

Lush Moods

On August 24 Lush Uk will introduce some new products under the title ‘Lush Moods’, in their stores.

Some of the things they’ll start selling at that time in uk stores include:

Vanillary body spray

Magic body scrub

Scrub Scrub Scrub

I’m not clear at this time if the new Lush Labs Shower bombs and packageless Atmospgere gels will be part of the store items or not. Ill be adding the new Atmosphere gels that i bought here on my blog in the next 24 hours

I’m also not clear on if lush plan on selling these on line or not.

Magic Crystals

i would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a moisturizing, scrub cleanser.

Initially i rated it a 5 out of 5 but i will say that because of what a couple of my followers have stated, it’s best not to get this in sensitive areas as it can burn/sting quite a bit.

So because of that i changed my rating to 4 out of 5.

It’s still a great above average product.

Initially i thought this was some kind of scrubby shower soap, like a scrubbe smoothie. But upon using it in my demo i discovered that its not meant to wash with.

One washes first then uses this after rinsing your soap or shower gel off. Then you rinse it off. Its conditioning. Its very conditioning compared to rub rub rub.

This isnt a fine exfoliation, its a coarser consistency, so just fyi that as i know some of you don’t like a coarse scrub.

here is a video i recorded where i demo how to use it.

It diesnt smell particularly herbal considering there is a good amount of sage in here. I only smell mint. Its not extremely sweet.

Magic needn’t only be cast with a flick of a wand or a twitch of a nose, magic can come in a tub in the bathroom.

Hop in a hot shower and let the warm water dance across your skin before scooping out a handful of this scrub.

Warming and stimulating aniseed oil accompanies fine sea salt and Epsom salts to brighten, buff and polish skin while fresh rosemary and sage infusions cleanse and tone. Rinse off and let menthol crystals, peppermint and spearmint oils to leave cool tingles up and down your skin like the remnants of magic recently cast.

Guardian of the Forest back on line!

In North America!

Yay! Im so glad they brought it back. I took some pics of a bath i had recently with a Lush Guardian of the Forest with my Lush Turtle bath bomb.

I absolutely adore the foresty scent made with cypress notes of this bath bomb. I love the emerald green color it makes my bath water.

And green sparkle too!

I give Guardian a 5 out of 5 rating.

Lush has also introduced Milky Bar soap with a new lovely design!

I took a pic of the new one along side the Lush bubble bar of the same name.

It has a light, floral fragrance with hints of orange oil.

I give this soap a 4 out of 5 rating.

This soap was made and sold way back in 1993 when Lush was calked ‘Cosmetics To Go’.

My indie bath forages – part 3 The Mad Bombers Camp Crystal Lake Haul!

part 1 of my Indie bath and body vendor series is here.

Here is a haul video below that i recorded with a bath cocktail video made from all these products.

The scent of real marshmallow was the overriding note in this box. Yummy.

This is my first themed bath box.

I have heard of the Mad Bombers in my periphery but had never looked to see what they offer. Again, nothing against the Mad Bombers, i was just too knee deep in Lush to try any other company.

This changed when i saw a product from one of my favorite bath vendors fly past the screen, Bedazzle your skin, who has collaborated with The Mad Bombers on this box. The product i saw fly by my feed was two marshmallows on a stick that were toasted golden brown and even had a golden sheen to the golden edges.

Except that..it was a bubble bar.

I looked around wildly to make sure i actually saw it fly past my instagram feed.

I looked on the Bedazzled site…it wasnt there!

I looked on my feed again, it was..on the Mad Bombers feed? I scratched my head.

I looked closely at the name on the package and it DID say Bedazzled, not Mad Bombers. So why was it on THEIR site but not hers?

So i looked all over and realized that this marshmallow bubble bar product from Bedazzle your skin was only going to be included in a Mad Bombers collaborative theme box!

I was intrigued now.

I also noticed that there was a cookie from the black magic cakery in the box.

Thats it! I HAD to have it.

So i ordered the box. It retailed for 60.00 plus shipping.

I got it in approximately one week.

I took pics of all the contents and in a group photo as well.

Yo Mad Bombers, you got me, i’m hooked.

You had me at themed collab, and Sarahs marshmallows of carnage and a cookie sealed the deal.

The bath bomb lasted a long time, it smelled nice, and turned my bath a lovely bright orange peach color.

I smell like a giant marshmallow and my skin is so soft.

One thing to note, the soap isnt marshmallow scented. It has a WONderfully clean, green/aquatic scent! I like the soap ALOT in its own right.

Now i’m just waiting to see their next box. I just missed the Shark Week theme box though i eas able to get the ‘Dont get in the Water’ bomb and their Snow Cone bomb

How to use the summer camp spray in this box: spray on, let the alcohol dry down, now sniff the yummy UNfake marshmallow scent.

Yes.

Come at me Jason!

I *might* let you have a marshmallow and a bite of my cookie.

The next entry in this series is here.

Below are some photos i took of a bath i had with The Mad Bombers ‘Dont Get in the Water’ bomb made for shark week.
