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.

Poppy

I’ll be getting three (one for a giveaway) in around 7 days, and I’ll record a sink demo and do a review at that time as well.

This soap is made with black currants.

Lush Description: Take a walk through a wild meadow. As far as the eye can see, bright red poppies stretch out before you, swaying heads, petals beckoning you onward. The sun warms your face as you stroll, insects humming gently as you pass, dancing among the flowers. Find the perfect spot and unpack your picnic of jam sandwiches and cool blackcurrant squash, their sugary sweetness lingering in the air before being whisked away on a bergamot breeze.

Here’s a sink demo and review video I recorded

Lush Labs

August 29

Lush Labs have released six new (sort of) perfumes. I say sort of new necause Lush released two or three of these in 2005 when they had their sister company in London called ‘B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful’. I still have my original Cocktail, Two Hearts and Assasin perfumes from that boutique.

Back then people in the U.S. could buy the products at the B Never boutique online through the Lush Uk site.

I bought Two Hearts Beats Again, and Over and Over perfumes this morning, as well as the new ‘Scrub Scrub Scrub’ body wash scrub.

Assasin used to be sold as a scent for Men. But i know women who like the Assasin scent too.

Cocktail- Lush used to sell a shower gel up until 2017 called ‘Wash That Man Out of My Hair’, and that was the ‘Cocktail’ scent. Its an effervescent blend of lavender, jasmine, bergamot, rose, sandalwood and ylang ylang.

Its kind of a fun scent. A bubbly floral scent.

Two Hearts Beats Again is slightly different than the original ‘Two Hearts Beating as One’ perfume that Lush used to sell at their B never boutique. This August 2018 version deletes the geranium and adds sandalwood! Yay! Im glad because the original needed some grounding.

Orange Blossom is exactly that. Pure unadulterated orange blossom. Lush has sold this perfume twice before.

Metamorphosis perfume smells just like the bath bomb of the same name. It smells earthy, and licirice-y.

Over and Over perfume smells just like the bath bomb of the same name. Citrussy Lime, green cypress, bergamot and spicy fennel.

Here is a video review and sink demo of the ‘Sleepy’ shower bomb

June 29

Update today May 29, 2018 #LushLabs announced, via the lush kitchen Instagram account, that they will sell tickets to the 2018 Lush Creative Showcase. Heres a link to last year’s Creative Showcase 2017 event.

Many customers were angry that there are not going to have any products to sell people on the site today as mentioned by lush earlier. Lush code to instead offer tickets today to the Uk event instead.

April 29

Below are Lush Labs products for April 2018.

Here’s my video describing these items

About 13.7 billion years ago there was a big bang and the universe blew up like soup does when you leave it in the microwave too long. Then bath bombs were invented.

And now Lush have come up with a new idea that won’t fit on the shelf above your sink (and a whole host of forward-thinking exclusives that will). Intrigued? Seek out #lushlabs on Instagram.

I made a video on my Lush reviews youtube channel i show my trip to England, given to me by Lush Uk. in this video below i go to the Lush 29 High Street labs in 2014. As you can see in the video the gentlemen explains the two offices at this location are the labs where Mark Constantine and Rowena Bird work on the Lush inventions. All lush products start here. It’s a lovely location where the original facade of the original Lush store is located.

This location is where Lush will be making something exclusive for people to buy on April 29, and all I can say is there are some exclusive Lush products that I have which I need to hurry up and review!

Oat soap

Oregano

Komorebi soap

Poppy soap

Aster soap

Birch Sap soap
