Lush Naked shop – Japan

Lush will open its third all naked shop in Japan in mid 2019.

Lush introduced the products that will be made for this store at their annual Creative Showcase.

I was fortunate enough to attend the annual Lush Cosmetics Creative Showcase this year, 2018.

While there i was lucky enough to be able to buy the following exclusive prodicts, and included are a couple of exclusive products which were given to me by the creators at the showcase.

Amongst my favorite products are the six bath bombs that were on display at the showcase. Once a day (the showcase was a two day event) a magical van would open up in an explosion of smoke! And out would pop a group of Lush staff dressed up and leading songs about the bath bomb that would be demonstrated before those of us in the crowded line. Then they would announce that the bombs would be sold to those of us in line, one per person, until they sold out.

I was able to get multiple of each because my husband bought a ticket to the event too and was with me in line. He bought one too and gave his to me. Additionally, we had tickets for both days, so the next day we waited in line again and bought one each again.

Then as we were leaving, i got a call saying the owners of Lush wanted to thank me for what ive done for them throughout the years by giving me a bag with some goodies which included one each of these six exclusive bath bombs.

I couldnt believe it! So this is why i have multiples and have been doing giveaways with them.

So i have taken photos and videos of all of them for you.

Giant Bombshells – Fruit, Floral,Seaweed

While roaming around the creative showcase my husband and I happened upon an area that was beautifully arranged with fresh flowers and other goodies.  It looked like a garden in the middle of everything at the Creative showcase.

Upon poking further-a kind woman demonstrated these to me, explaining the concept of the fresh, ‘pick your own’ fillings.  They had four kinds and colors of giant ‘bombshells’ there.

The only one I don’t know the name of and don’t have it in any of my video of the creative showcase nor in any of my photos at the event.

These hollowed out bath bombs are twice the size of the regular sized Lush bath bomb.

The fillings coincided with each of the four bombshells; blue=Floral, yellow and orange=fruit, aqua green=seaweed, and like I said I don’t know what the pink ones are.  The pink one is the only one that I didn’t fill with anything.

 

These fragile beauties traveled 2,500 miles from England to the United States, in my carry on bag.  My husband wrapped them so wonderfully that all but one survived perfectly intact,  and even survived a groping by the customs agents at the airport because they were searching them for drugs or explosives. I’m not even kidding.

It was explained to me that the fruits, flowers, plant material, etc were all grown organically by Lush partners for this purpose. Certainly practicing fair trade and cruelty free products in cooperating with farmers  around the world.

My favorite is the blue floral bombshell.  Like the fruit bombshell, the blue floral one has two shades, in this case blue shades.  And treble one has a small sprinkling of glitter.

Thus far I’ve only bathed and demoed one, the fruit bombshell.  I’ll post my photos and demo video of each of the the bombshells as I use them.  I will keep updating this page as I use each of the other three.

 

Hulder

5 out of 5 rating.
Hulder is a scandinavian mythological creature. Its akin to a siren or a mermaid. It’s part animal part human.

check out my tub demo below of this glittery gorgeous bomb.

This is an exclusive bath bomb shown at the Lush uk Creative Showcase event in England September 23 & 24.

I took some video footage of hulder at the Lush showcase for you. I also recorded a tub demo video for you, And i also took photos of mine in the tub.

Lush also sold iron on patches of the exclusive bombs at the showcase event.

We were able to buy one only once per day and only for one hour when the magic bus opened. But first-One had to see the secret count down signs that were placed throughout the event to let us know when and where. It was a fun game.

Eventually these six exclusive bath bombs will only be sold in Lush Japan’s first all ‘naked’ Lush store, which is slated to open in 2019.

Hulder is my favorite of the six bombs bevause of the way it looks and the way it smells.

The scent is very different, in a good way. It smells floral and earthy with a big of greenery. Absolutely gorgeous. It smells both pretty and mysterious.

I didnt want to get out of the tub.

The bomb shows green and purple as it fizzes. Green and purple are my favorite color combination. My hair is dyed green and purple.

Im so so grateful that Jack Constantine gave me a random act of kindness.

On Instagram some lushies who like to do makeup looks have been creating makeup looks to match lush halloween products. So, since my daughter loves makeup, i had my daughter do a look for Hulder. 🙂

Here is my tub demo

Kitsune

See my tub demo i recorded at the end of this review.

Here’s a pic i took of the tray full of Kitsune bath bombs for you.

Here’s a video below that i recorded of the tray of them at the Lush Creative Showcase in England.

Here’s a picture of mine.

see my tub demo i recorded for you below.

i like the theme of this Kitsume bath bomb. Kitsume means Fox in Japanese. I like what Kitsume signifies, and its cute, looking like a cross between a cat, a shell and a fox.

In some cultures in japan it is a fox spirit which has magical powers.

It has a very citrusy scent. not sweet in any way. it reminds me of the Lush cheer up buttercup bath bomb scent.

It makes the water a lovely peach color. And there is also a gold sparkle. not too much sparkle, it’s minimal.

This bomb fizzes very fast and furious. really fresh!

It doesn’t have skin moisturizing properties in it.

All in all i love this bomb. i would buy another one or two.

heres a video demo

Royalty

5 out of 5 rating. See my Tub Demo video of it that I recorded for you below

This is a Lush Cosmetics bath bomb made exclusively for the New Lush Japan Naked ship opening at the beginning of the new year.

Jack Constantine was kind enough to give me one of each of the six exclusive bath bombs. However i had already bought two when i was at the showcase. So i have one left for a Giveaway!

Here’s a Bathtub Demo of it that I recorded for you

Royalty bath bomb is made with jasmine and vanilla. the lush person at the Creative Showcase told me there was also sandalwood in it.

A Gold Crown. What’s not to like?

The scent of Royalty reminds me of The Lush ‘Vanillary’ scent except this adds sandalwood.

See my tub demo of Royalty that i recorded below.

I don’t know if they add condoning things in this bath bomb but it definitely seems to be more conditioning than most lush bath bombs. The water almost becomes milky.

There is a beautiful gold shimmer in the water. Not too much though.

Princess Bomb Bomb

3.5 out of 5 rating

This is one of three different style of Lush Holiday bath bomb. Having quite a different shape, this bomb is in two parts, a head and a torso. Lush has introduced a santa, a snowman and a princess in this style.

They can be somewhat unweildy if youre not aware that the head isnt attached to the body.

Upon investigating these bombs ay the lush creative showcase i promptly dispatched a head while many people watched as it’s lone head rolled across the floor evetyone stifling a laugh.

Princess is pink and yellow, having a yellow bath homb head and a larger mauve colored torso.

Its definitely a much bigger bomb than regular Lush bokbs so take thst into consideration when looking at the price.

This bomb is a fast fizzer though it dpestake longer to fizz away than most fast fizzers because of its size.

Lush creator said lush made princess with a new scent. Its a lovely powdery light floral. A young floral scent. I quite liked the way my skin smelled long after getting out of the tub and drying off.

There’s something about this proncess bomb that is unnerving, perhaps because it looks like a doll, and sometes dolls can be kind of creepy lol. My petsonal creepiness aside i think this bomb will be very nice for young people to use because its kind of interactive.

I enjoyed using it but i dont think id buy another one.

Here is a demo video i recorded of Princess Bomb Bomb in the tub.

The World’s Smallest Disco

This is a fedtive bomb for the Holidays. This one takes out all the stops. It’s black first of all, and it has bright pink, green, blue and yellow discs of color that dissolve and form little puddles of bright day glo color against a sparkling pallette of black.

The bomb has a nice citrussy scent of lime and grapefruit.

Its a bit of a clean up, nothing too henious but there is some cleanup involved.

The black and multicolored glitter look like a million tiny mirrors floating through the water. Mesmerizing.
