I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

This bath bomb is new this Christmas. It’s made in the Lush ‘Space Girl’ bath bomb scent.

(The 2020 Halloween shower gel is also the same scent. )

When i get my Christmas order that i buy from the website i’ll post my review here with bath pictures.

Bat Art

This Halloween we have a new bath bomb called Bat Art (a play on the term bath art). The scent of this bath bomb is the Lush ‘Junk’ perfume scent. I have a video of my thoughts on the Lush Junk perfume that i have. While it’s not my favorite scent, i’m certain this bath bomb is going to be awesome no matter what it’s scent is 😊.

When i receive the one i bought on the website i’ll review it here.

Beauty Sleep

5 out of 5 rating. See my video below where i apply it and review it.

Mark Constantine, owner of Lush Uk wanted to have a little fun so he decided to work with Helen Ambrosen on a new face and body mask.

They made it by adding a teaspoon of gorgeous moisturizer and then they added the ingredients to ‘Sleepy’, Lavender, Yang ylang and Tonka.

when they finalized the product he announced that they will let us have a crack at naming the product. So people submitted they’re names and a handful of people chose ‘Beauty Sleep’ and this is the name that won.

it’s a perfect name. the mask smells amazing! if you know what the gorgeous moisturizer smells like you can imagine that plus sleepy.

instructions recommend slathering it on your face and your arms, neck, chest, back, stomach and then let it stay on your skin for 10-20 minutes while you’re in the tub or in the shower. Then after that time just rinse it off.

it’s got ground adult beans for exfoliating and it’s LOADED with many moisturizing ingredients.

it’s a beautiful pinkish lavender color.

Lo and Behold when those of us who bought the Lush Kitchen subscription box from Lush Uk opened up our June boxes we found a surprise: a container of Beauty Sleep face and body mask. Yay!

As far as Lush masks go i really like this one. it made my skin feel cleansed and moisturized and it smelled gorgeous. Using it before bed was a good idea since the ingredients in ‘Sleepy’ (twilight) are conducive to sleep.

Karma bath melt pyramid

30g

Karma scent

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter. Laureth 4, Gold Sparkles, Almond Oil, Perfume, Patchouli Oil , Orange Oil , Lavendin Oil , Pine Oil , Lemongrass Oil , Elemi Oil , Gardenia Extract.

Review: This is a pyramid shaped (the one on the left is a little less pyramid-like LOL), it has gold glitter and smells of Lush’s signature “Karma” scent. This is a wonderful smelling and skin softening melt. It has tns of cocoa butter. You simply put it in the bath water after it’s filled and it melts with the hot water and leaves little trails of beautiful golden glitter. You can also smoosh it up under the running water while the bath is filling up too. It’ll work either way. But beware…it has LOADS of glitter. You will have glitter everywhere (including your friends clothing, your dog and your husband) for a couple of days. I loved this melt and I wish it were still around.

Yuletide 2001 Lush Times description: Fake perfumes are so good these days that city dwellers have almost lost the ability to appreciate real scents what with the synthtic smells of coffee, bread and burgers pumped out to attract us to use their sources. There are some very beautiful synthetic perfumes (and there’s even one in Karma) but we prefer the real thing, perfumes made from flowers just like the great, great, great, great, great grandfather would have done if he hadn’t been too busy diggeing coal. Why? Because we don’t just use them for the scent; we use them for the effect on the mind and body. This is why a Bath Melt scented with Karma is so lovely; it softens and moisturizes your skin as well as scenting it. Try our new little pyramid of perfume in your bath and feel what we mean….

Ma Bar

Ma Bar
Honey I Washed the Kids scent


Ingredients: 3.5 oz $6.30

Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocoa Powder (Theobroma cacao), Cocamide DEA, Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Bergamot Oil (Citrus bergamia), Sugar Cube (Saccharum officinarum).

Review: When this bubble bar initially came out it was a limited edition “Mother’s Day” product. This bubble bar has the same scent as the popular Lush “Honey I Washed The Kids” soap, “Soft Couer” massage bar, “Honey Bee” ballistic, etc. At times this scent can be too sweet for me. I have to be in the mood for the sweet yummy toffee scent but when I am this is a fun, great looking bar to use. In the bath, the scent isn’t as strong though and the smell diminishes too rapidly in my opinion. These are great gifts for a friend too because they look like a cute piece of cake or something.

2006 Lush Times description: The Ma Bar is our solution to the chocolate cravings which seem to possess us when the weather gets warmer. It has been scientifically proven that smelling sweets can satisfy your appetite for them. Crumble the chocolate and toffee coloured (and scented) Ma Bar under your running bathwater for a cocoa, orange, sugar and honey scented bath (let’s not forget the scrumptious smell of Honey I Washed The Kids) which tones your skin and cures your need for sweetness (until next time). The Ma Bar has been extended because you love it so much, you’ve made it a best seller.

Lemon Days and Ginger Beer


Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Lemon Peel, Powdered Ginger, Perfume, Ginger Oil,  Mimosa Absolute, Red Mandarin Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Geranium Oil , Bergamot Oil, Gardenia Extract , Colour 19140.

Review: This ballistic was discontinued about as quickly as it came out. Loads of people liked it on the forum but I guess it just didn’t sell at all and was pulled a few months after introduction. It smells like the perfume Ginger, highly floral rose but it has a strong lemony top note also. I wouldn’t normally like this combo but Lush also includes Sandalwood, Mimosa (like is in 17 Cherry Tree Lane soap and Sakura ballistic) , and also some red mandarin oil. So while i don’t hate it, i don’t love it either. It’s quite strong when fresh and the red mandarin orange oil and sandalwood is covered up by the fresh ginger and lemon scent, but when this ballistic mellows a bit it’s lovely. It makes bright yellow water. 3 stars.

Lush Times 2004 Description: How about a jolly bathtime adventure with lashings of ginger and lemon? Drop into a pre-run bath for a refreshing ginger fizz and lemonade experience.

Waving Not Drowning

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Lavender Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Fennel Oil (Foeniculum vulgare), Cardamom Oil (Elettaria cardamomum), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Perfume, D&C Violet No. 2.

Lush.a.Lot’s Review: This smaller ballistic (70g) is a long timer in the Lush product line. It remains just as popular as it was years ago. This is a small bomb but the scent is not small, it’s got a strong lavender scent with a wee bit of a fennel bite to it. This is a staple Lush item for me. When i need some relaxing WnD always does the job and it can be combined with many oither lush product which have a lavender scent: French Kiss bubble bar, Therapy message bar, Angels on Bare Skin, Dreamtime Bath Melt. If this was a regular sied ballistic it would probably be a four star ballistic for me.

Lush Times 2006 description: Can’t sleep? Won’t sleep? The Waving not Drowning’s essential oils give strength and courage to the weak and fatigued then dispatch you to the land of nod. Keep several in stock for emergencies, jet lag, and 3 a.m. insomnia cures.

How To Use: Fill bath tub and drop bomb into water. For those bath bombs containing flower petals or other surprises, wrap the bath bomb in a nylon before use. To make your experience even more memorable, combine a bath bomb with a bath melt.

Dinosaur Bombshell Egg

5 out of 5 star rating

This year Lush United Kingdom and Lush North America have released their yearly Dinosaur Egg, onky this year theyve made it into a bombshell type. The bombshells are Lush bath bombs that are two halves of different colored bombs that go together and usually have something inside. The last few Easter holidays what was inside of them was a fun bar shaped like a little green dinosaur. This year however, lush has a bubble bar inside that is shaped like a little green dinosaur.

Dinosaur Bombshell Egg

It’s scent is made the same this year with fruity grapefruit & bergamot oils as well as the sweet and yummy almond essential oil.

“If you’re looking for a Jurassic bath, the rapturous fizz and crackle of this Easter treat is a T-rrific choice! Grab your prehistoric surprise before you pop one or both bath bomb halves in the water and enjoy a legendary sherbert-scented soak. Inside you’ll find your own little dino bubble bar, ready to be crumbled under running water for an eruption of bubbles. A dino-mite encounter with grapefruit and popping candy is sure to provide roarsome refreshment.”

How to use: Use half of your egg at a time or throw the whole thing into a full bath to unleash a fizztacular display. The dinosaur inside can be crumbled under running water to create perfectly prehistoric bubbles.

I use the bubble bar after ive filled it half way and after the bath bomb has dissolved. I hold the bubble bar under the falling faucet water and watch as this creates bubbles in the water below in the tub.

How to store: Keep it in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to re-discover a Jurassic world of delights.

I love multi colored components of my bath goodies, because i like to combine colors to make other colors. For instance the blue half and yellow half combined make a pretty shade of green water.

I would recommend the Dinosaur bombshell egg. You can get three baths out of it if you use each component in seperate baths. 🙂

Temple of the Sky

5 out of 5 rating, for looks and scent.

See my 3 minute tub Demo Video below.

In addition to the new ‘‘Flight’ bath bomn, here is a review and a couple of shots of Lush ‘Temple of the Sky’ bath bomb, exclusive to the @lushjapan store in Harajuku and on the Uk website. Smells like oranges. Its made with lon and orange oil.

This is one of two favorites of mine out of the latest six new Japan/Uk Lush bath bombs. The other four dont have quite the oomph Temple of the Sky and Flight have in my opinion.

Finalky a decent orange Lush scent. The orange in this is nice and strong and lasts the wjole bath. Thats another thing about this Temple in the Sky bomb….it fizzes for a long luxurious time.

This bright red bubble bar is a reusable style. After using it i would say one could get 2-3 baths from it.

The Lush site doesnt say it but its made with cinnamon and mint, in the same scent as Lush ‘Wiccy Magic Muscles’ massage bar. So its warming with the cinnamon and cooling with the mint at the same time. Its good to use if youve got sore muscles.

It makes lots of bubbles and dark pink water. It has no glitter. The cinnamon and mint scents is medium strong. Its not too weak and not too strong, its just right.

Be careful where you put this after you use it because the red color will have to be rinsed off.

There is a bit of cocoa butter mixture at one end of it.

“This vibrant bubble bar sure packs a perfumed punch! If you’re in need of a pick-me-up or something soothing post-battle, get in the ring (or bath) with this spicy, muscle-soothing bubble bar to get back to your best.”

I like this bar and wod recommend it.

Benefits:
– Epsom salt has a plethora of restorative benefits, from relaxing your mind to soothing physical pain in your muscles.
– Cinnamon leaf oil stimulates blood circulation to soothe sore muscles and help your skin glow.
– Enlivening peppermint oil refreshes and cleanses.

How to use: Hold under running water for mounds of spiced bubbles and powerfully pink water. When you’ve whipped up enough bubbles, pop on the side to dry for next time.

How to store: Store in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to use. Between uses, keep in a soap dish ready for the next round.

Flight

A Lush Harajuku bath bomb Made with the Yummy Mummy scent.

5 out of 5 rating.

See my 4 minute Tub Demo Video below.

Its the same scent as Lush ‘Yummy Mummy’ shower gel and ‘Roller’ bath bomb and body sprayit smells like sweet strawberry and oranges. See below for more ingredients.

I think the bath art this makes is some of the most stunning that Lush has ever made in a bath bomb. Purple, blue, green, yellow….WoW.

It also has light blue colored glitter which is rare to see in a lush bomb if you think about it.

It has little shiny pieces of red salt embedded into the top.

It ultimately creates a cobalt blue water.

Gorgeous!

5 out of 5 rating

See my 4 minute Tub Demo Video of it below.

This is a bath bomb made after Mel. B from the spice girls. Its got a cheetah print it on it.

If yoy look close (as i show in my video) you can see that the black markings are glittery.

It smells so nice and yumny spicy. Reminds me of Lush Brave mouthwash tabs and Chris the Camel bath bomb. Like something good and spicy for desert.

Its made with cinnamon, black pepper and clove.

Its a slow, foamy fizzer, and it produces some great and unexpected bath art.

Its got gold in it, blue and purple and gold and purple glitter in the water.

It takes a long time to dissolve, which i like. Its relaxing to see it roll its little self all around my tub as you can see in my video.

The black didnt stick on my tub in any crazy way. Mostoy just the rin area was purple, but it quickly came off with a spray of tub cleaner and a paper towel. I would recommend this bomb.
