Marshmallow World

4 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute tub demo below

Lush has opened up a new store in the Harajuku area of Japan. At this new, special store Lush will sell 35-50 exclusive bath bombs. One of these exclusive Japan Harajuku store bombs is Marshmallow World.

Its made with the popular scent of a Lush hair conditioner called ‘American Cream’, which is an herbal vanilla blend.

It’s made with strawberries for their skin properties , not for the primary scent. The scent is sage-which is a bitter herb-and vanilla, and we all know what vanilla smells like. So put bitter herbs and vanilla together with a bit of lavender, which is even more of an herbally flower, and you have the American Cream scent.

So you can see that it doesn’t smell like strawberries.

I like to stress this fact because i always see disappointed people writing lush comments like ‘but it doesnt smell like strawberries like some of your other strawberry scented things’.

Whew. Now that we have that out of the way 😉 let me talk about what this bomb looks like.

Marshmallow World is such a pretty bomb on the outside, with lovely pink and having purple and yellow striations. It pooks like an unfamilair but fun planet.

It fizzes and makes a baby pink foam and turns the water a light pink color. This bomb must have somethung special in it which is softening to the skin. It feels moisturizing a bit.

What a beautiful scent. While American Cream scent isn’t my favorite, i don’t hate it either by any means. Its a calming scent to me. I think its quite a meditative scent..with a teaspoon of yumminess thrown in.

Lush has made three other bath bombs in the past years with the American Cream scent with different names. But i must say this is the prettiest version.

It doesnt make full-on bath art per se, but it is still beautiful as it fizzes in the tub.

I would by one more but its not one i would stock up on like i did with some of the other community favorites/Japan store bombs like ‘Tender is the Night’, ‘The Comforter’, ‘Melusine’, ‘Golden Pear’.

My tub demo

If youre an American Cream lover than i suggest you stock up on these limited edition beauties!

Lush description: Indulge in a sugar bath scented with American Cream – you’ll get all of the sweet-shop glee and none of the post-binge guilt. Vanilla scented with a touch of strawberry, this multi-coloured marvel is a fiesta of fizz. Marshmallow powder soothes and softens, while granulated sugar adds a sugary flourish, you’ll smell good enough to eat! 

Melusine

5 out of 5 rating See my 2 minute tub demo of this gorgeous bath bomb below 🙂

According to Wikipedia

Melusine (French: [melyzin]) or Melusina is a figure of European folklore and mythology(mostly Celtic), a female spirit of fresh water in a sacred spring or river. She is usually depicted as a woman who is a serpent or fish from the waist down (much like a mermaid). She is also sometimes illustrated with wings, two tails, or both.

Lush has opened up a new store in the Harajuku area of Japan. At this new, special store Lush will sell 35-50 exclusive bath bombs.

One of these exclusive Japan Harajuku store bombs is this Melusine.

This bomb was made with their fan favourite ‘Avocado Co Wash shampoo’ scent. Its made with litsea cubeba, which is a lemony smelling herb. Reminds me of lemon grass. Its also got frankincense (olibanum), which has also always smelled lemony at times to me.

Altogether Its more of a sweet and sour citrus scent. Its a strong scent.

Description; If you’re feeling like a nervous wreck, drop Melusine a line. This mesmerising mermaid bath bomb is sure to make waves. Sweet lemony litsea cubeba and cheerful bergamot oil lift your senses, while olibanum will have you floating in no time. Finally a pinch of carrageenan extract hydrates the skin, delivering a hefty dose of vitamin sea. Watch as your cares drift away.

Because its a slower, foamier type of bomb, which lends tomy relaxation, and also because of the beautiful color and glitter, and the fact that the fragrance is good and strong in this bath bomb-i give it a 5 out of 5 rating.

Lush also made an exclusive perfume ‘Avocado Wash’ and sold it at lush.co.uk

List of ingredients

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.
