Skullduggery



Lush Times: Skullduggery is an eerie but magical celebration for your bathtub. We used brightening and refreshing lime and neroli for the fragrance and olibanum (also known as frankincense resinoid) to help that citrusy smell stay on your skin until the witching hour and beyond. Lime oil is a popular ingredient in remedies to combat congested skin, cellulite or simply to wake you up! We use expensive neroli oil as it is one of the few essential oils to be scientifically proven to increase serotonin production in the brain – Arriba! Olibanum resinoid, otherwise known as frankincense, has a woody, slightly fruity aroma and covers the skin with a thin, protective film, softening the skin. It is extremely effective on sore, cracked, de-hydrated skin.

 Jack invented Calavera Bath Bomb last year for our Day of the Dead celebration; a very zesty number full of vibrant, bright colours to get you celebrating in the bath. He chose uplifting citrus oils for the fragrance, as they can help clear your head after a night of celebrating the dead (with one too many tequilas!)

Decorated skulls (or Calaveras) are iconic in Day of the Dead imagery – so this year, we took the concept of Jack’s Bath Bomb last year and gave it a slightly spookier look. This ballistic is limited edition so get it while you can.

This doesn’t make any colors in the bath, but it is cute.

Here’s a demo and review video i made of Skullduggery in the bath

Here’s a ‘scent Family portrait’ photo i took of all the Lush ‘Calacas scented things, except for the wonderful ‘Enchanter’ which is not in the family portrait. I want Lush to pleeeease make Enchanter again someday.  I love Skullduggery and Enchanter equally.  One has the super cute factor, and one is one of the most colorful lush bath bomb i’ve ever seen. 🙂

Calavera

4 out of 5 ratingSee my demo video below. This bath bomb was made with the Lush ‘Calacas’ scent.


It’s got lime, neroli, and frankincense.  It smells like perfume=y limes. It’s an airy scent. Slightly sweet.

 

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Lime Oil, Olibanum Resinoid, Neroli Oil , Marigold Petals, Sugar,

Lush Times: When Jack Constantine reinvented the bath ballistic, he came up with this spooky bomb that symbolised the Day of the Dead festival. He used marigold petals to give it an authentic feel and gave it a kick with essential oil pressed from the juicy lime, a Mexican favourite with food and alcohol. Calavera changes colour and looks like a magical, eerie celebration in the water – just like the extraordinary celebrations that happen in Mexico. Stock up while you can, it won’t be around forever.

Moon on a Stick

5 out of 5 rating

See my demo video below

 

This is one lovely bath bomb.  Don’t let it’s gray, craggy exterior fool you, inside is where the Magic happens.

The scent is a strong floral.  Lush made this Moon On a Stick bath bomb with their “Ghost’ or ‘Lily Savon’ scent.  A hauntingly floral scent, not a speck of sweetness, but is has lily infusion.

This bath bombs changes the color of the bath water three times.  

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid,Cream of Tartar  Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Jasmine Absolute, Ylang Ylang Oil , Neroli Oil , Water (Aqua),Lauryl Betaine, Cocamide DEA, Geraniol, Perfume, Silver Glitter, Silver Stars, Silver Edible Lustre

Sparkler

Lush Sparkler-a ‘Rose Jam’ scented bath bomb

 

Lush Description:  Pop, pop, fizz, fizz, oh what a spectacle this is! Sparkler was made to make bathtime as exciting as a night filled with fireworks. Handmade with popping candy, it’ll crackle in an explosion of color, moving around the tub and turning your water into a fiery, shimmering display! It also features one of our most popular fragrances: Rose Jam! Its delicate and floral aroma will fill the room and leave your skin kissed with its beautiful scent.

Review:  I like the Sparkler.  The color is surprisingly yellow considering that it’s scent is Rose Jam according to Lush.  This Sparkler ballistic leaves a good scent of Rose Jam/Rose Argan in the bath. While i don’t like the colors in Sparkler as much as it’s purple cousin ‘Northern Lights’ ballistic, it is beautiful to watch, with it’s gold and yellow foam and sparkles.  I’m glad i tried this. I might buy one more.

Here’s a picture i took of Lush “Calacas” jelly.  When you take it out of the container and plopped it out on a dish or counter top it has a skull shape and facial details.  Awesome.

This is what the Calacas skull jelly looks like still in the container while i shine some light in it. I liked the spooky effect it gave the jelly.
