Infra Wig

4 out of 5 rating

see my 2 minute video of its consistency below

New for Spring 2021 in the Lush UK has introduced ‘Infra Wig’ soft styling gel. They’ve also introduced a second hair gel called just ‘Wig’, but they were out of ‘Wig’ when i was on the website.

Lush UK says Infra Wig is a ‘no crunch’ toning gel for white or gray hair. Gray or white hair, natural gray or dyed gray, has a tendency to turn yellowish depending on environmental factors.

They’ve also introduced a second hair gel called just ‘Wig’, but they were out of ‘Wig’ when i was on the website.

Orange, Grapefruit, Vanilla, Lemon Myrtle, Tonka.

I just took a pic of the Lush Hair Dressers Husband scent family.

Lush says you can use this on wet or dry hair, and it’s best to comb through hair but you can use your hands if you want.

i used it. It didn’t make my hair crunchy which is good.

It has the scent of the Lush exclusive ‘Hair Dresser’s Husband’ spray perfume from 2010. Recently Lush UK rereleased this perfume in newly designed bottles.

Lush Kitchen June 2021 subscription box voting

Here are the six products that we choose from to vote.

Here’s my vote

93,000 Miles shower jelly

4 out of 5

spicy. Cinnamon and mint. Kind of like Wiccy Magic muscles bar.

see my one minute video of it below
small size is $6.95 (3.50gbp) , large size is $11.95 (6.95 gbp)

After your muscles have been hitting the running tracks, have a run-in with this invigorating eucalyptus and mint jelly. Whether you like it fast or slow, whether you’ve completed a marathon or mastered a sprint finish this bright wobbly jelly will loosen aches and pains and send lingering cramp on its way. Take it straight out of the freezer and into the shower to enjoy the energising power of invigorating peppermint and warming spicy cinnamon leaf oils.

Antiphilitron liquid shampoo

2 out of 5

i wouldn’t recommend if you have dry hair like me. 

for greasy and normal hair

500g £6.65 250g £3.90 100g £2.05

Ingredients: fresh lemon peel decoction, sodium lauryl ether sulphate, fresh lemon juice, cocoamphocarboxy-glycinate, lemon oil, lauryl betaine, perfume, methyl & propyl paraben.

This was more of a clarifying shampoo, good for getting the greeen out of blonde hair if one swims alot in chlroined water. Great lemony scent. This was a bit harsh on my hair and left tons of tangles. Just not for my hair type is all.

Lush 1999 description: Antiphilitron is for getting your hair clean when other shampoos don’t quite cut the mustard. What its fresh lemon juice, lemon oil and organic lemon peel mixture is good at is really getting hair squeaky clean, washing away grease, city grime or country muck and even chlorine from swimming pools. It also slices right through the silicones that get dumped on your hair by modern shampoos that make your hair smooth and shiny at first but then build up to make it a bit sad and lifeless. Fresh lemons make Antiphilitron smell fantastic, they perk up your hair and scalp and they help to revive your sleepy head in the morning. To greasy hair and grubby hair we say get Antiphilitron and get lively!

Banana Moon soap

4 out of 5

This was sold for about five years in all stores as a regular year round item.

The Lush Kitchen subscription box has this up for the vote with 5 other products for the month of May/June 2021

Lush used to make them in long cylindrical poles and then the last year they were around they started making the boring rectangle. But the soap didn’t change, it was still nice.

Ingredients: Sodium Palm Kernelate, Propylene Glycol, Natural Yoghurt, Fresh Bananas (Musa paradisiaca), Sodium Stearate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Perfume, EDTA, Tetrasodium Editronate, Glycerine, Sodium Chloride, Titanium Dioxide, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides)

You have to get a good, fresh piece to appreciate this. It’s creamy, banana-y and nice. It should smell like banana runts even though it is a natural, not fake, smell. It’s also a gentle soap.

2006 LT description: One of the things that irritates us just slightly is when we’re not having a good day is that it’s perfectly legal to call something banana soap when it doesn’t have any bananas in it, but merely a dab of synthetic banana fragrance. Our banana soap has lots of fresh bananas in it; we mash them up, mix them with yoghurt, soap flakes and essential oils and make a truly bananafied, moisturizing soap that smells of bananas because it’s full of them.

Banana Moon scent family

Grass body lotion

3 out of 5 rating

This was an exclusive made in the previous incarnation of the Lush Kitchen that i bought. They had numerous products turned into lotion that week in the kitchen in 2014.

This lotion is the least grass smelling of all the grass products.

Grass scent family (missing the perfume oil and body spray)

Intergalactic shower gel

4 out of 5

The bath bomb is sweet, minty, woody and citrussy. However, the shower gel loses some of its sweetness, and its woodiness in the translation. So the shower gel is minty and herbal with a jint of grapefruit. Not as sweet though, and not as layered in scent. But nice smelling nonetheless. ❤️

The bath bomb is very popular because of its looks and its scent. Its cobalt blue and full of Glitter. Like a planet, in space, amongst the sparkly stars.

This was never sold in Lush stores. It was only made one time by the Lush UK Community favorites, along with four others.

Here’s what it looks like

Rough With the Smooth body scrub bar (Lord of Misrule scent)

4 out of 5

This smells so damn good omg. It has a good scrubbiness to it with tiny exfoliating bits along with cocoa butter. Use it in the shower. keep it in a soap dish to dry between uses.

It’s got that wonderful vanilla, black pepper and patchouli scent.

Made with orange peel and it smells SO good. If you like the smell of Lush ‘Orange’ liquid body scrub you’ll love the smell of this balm.

This was created by Alessandro from Lush.

It was included as an exclusive product in the April 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box.

This has a totally different consistency than all the other Lush foot products. It’s not like a lotion in consistency. It’s the texture of a lip balm.

The best way to use this in my opinion is to have a foot soak at night, try to scrub away any rough skin on the feet , and when the foot soak is done and your dry your feet off, slather this foot balm on your feet and then put socks on overnight while you sleep.

When i did this my feet were so soft.

Bunny Bubble

4 out of 5 rating

Made primarily with vanilla. it’s white on the outside and pink on the inside.

it’s got tiny blue (real) flower petals which float around in the water when the tub is full.

This was originally made for Easter in 2015. It was remade in the Lush Kitchen in 2017. Also, This was voted on to have in the April 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription Box

This bunny has a white bubble bar covering a beautiful pink bubble bar inside.

It has the Creamy Candy bubble bar scent.

I LOVE this. I love the shock of pink underneath all that white coating. And i love the Creamy Candy scent. Much more than the Snow Fairy scent or the Candy Fluff scent.

Here’s a group of Easter things for 2015 and you can see Bunny Bubble on the left.

Bunny bubble in the left of the pic
It makes a light/medium pink colored water with lots of white creamy bubbles and tiny blue, pink and yellow flower petals.

Outback Mate bubble bar

Outback Mate bubble bar

The Lush Kitchen subscription box for the month of November 2021.

Lush Kitchen subscription box

This has the great scent of the Lush Outback Mate soap that Lush sells in their stores and online.

Outback Mate soap

It’s made with Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Lemongrass.

I love how strong it is, fills up my whole bathroom with its lovely scent.

I love the blue water.

No Glitter. And this isn’t a reusable type of bubble bar, it’s a regular squishy type of Lush bubble bar.

Schnuggle

5 out of 5 rating

Lush ‘Schnuggle’ body butter
Discontinued in 2010 or thereabouts.
Up for the vote for possible inclusion in the Feb 2021 Lush subscription box.
Lush has had a few of these body butter squares. Some exfoliating and some not.
This is one of the top three body butters that Lush have made in my opinion.

I love this bar for two reasons, the way it leaves a powdery soft finish on my skin, and the calming, yet sensual lavender, ginger, sandalwod and jasmine scent. This is one of lush’s first tries at this new formula and it’s the perfect consistency. If you Lushies dont’ like the more moist way that the other body butter bars leave your skin, you will love this. I even use it as a deo, it’s lovely smelling and it doesn’t scratch my skin and it’s also more moisturizing than a regular deo, The way I was taught to use it is to smooth is on your skin after I’ve dried off with a towel after a shower. It leaves skin dry and powdery soft. And it’s a dream for relaxing before bed. This is a softer, powderier lavender scent and a wee bit more floral than other of Lush’s lavender scents. Shnuggle reminds me more of the softer scent of lavender that is in “Ickle BabyBot” bath bomb. Mmmm….lovely.

Lush 2007 Description: Body Butter for Bed Time. In the world of Lush, the traditional thinking is that people take showers to wake themselves up in the morning and baths to calm down at night, but many of us have one or the other, not both. So we are delighted to introduce the Shnuggle bar, a sleep-inducing body butter for bedtime. Noriko came up with the concept, mixing moisturising cocoa butter with absorbent powders so that your skin feels soft and smooth, but not the slightest bit oily; use it, dry off and fall straight into bed without worrying about the sheets. It cleans in a chalky-smooth way and its dreamy, soporific, Dreamtime scent will seduce you straight to sleep.

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Corn Starch, Kaolin, Magnesium Carbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Lavender Oil, Ginger Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Chamomile Oil ,Jasmine Absolute

Botanomancy bubble bar

5 out of 5 rating

See my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below 😊

Legendary belle Ninon de Lenclos was said to soak in a blend of beautifying herbs to maintain her youthful vigour. You can invoke a little herbal alchemy of your own by drawing a bath full of pimento berry, peppermint and rose petals to quell agitation and promote wellbeing. Take a truly sensorial dip in woodsmoky waters perfumed with patchouli, sandalwood and cannabidiol oils to escape stress.

How to use:
Crumble under the hot water tap to conjure up clouds of bubbles, and steep in peaceful evergreen waters. If you’d like to follow Madam de Lenclos’ precise example, she advised resting 15 minutes in the magic water and thinking virtuous thoughts.

This product contains cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD oil, for its non-intoxicating relaxing qualities. The raw material is made of 10% CBD mixed with 90% Hemp Oil. This in turn is used at a percentage that provides 25mg of CBD per 200g item. You can find out more here.

Botanomancy is made from the scent of ‘Suoertramp’ bubble bath/shower gel…which is made from combining Tramp shower gel and Smaragadine bubble bath.

I love the scent of this. It’s like a dark green forest. It’s a comforting scent. Grounding.

cbd doesn’t work for everybody, but it does for me. Using this in the bath completely took my pain away.

To those Old Skool Lushies, this reminds me of Lush Tramp shower gel, but with no patchouli.

I love the dark green water.

Choco La La

Upcoming for the vote for inclusion in the Feb 2021 Lush Kitchen subscription box

Ingredients: Dark Chocolate, Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Sandalwood Oil (Santalum album), Violet Leaf Absolute (Viola odorata), Perfume.

Lush Times description: It IS real orange, sandalwood and violet leaf scent that are put into Choco La La and not ‘plastic’; as some of people have commented. They probably don’t realize that many of the scents they think are ‘natural’ are made in test tubes. If you try out this massage bar, you will experience the incomparable feeling of warmed cocoa butter and chocolate being smoothed into the skin, smell the revitalizing orange oil, the sandalwood to encourage relaxation and violet leaf to remember how to enjoy your sensuality. Do you get it? Perhaps it may be a little messy but it does wash out of your sheets and linen. Tap into your sense of adventure!

This is definitely one of my favorite lush massage bars. It looks like a little fancy chocolate dessert. It smells of chocolate (real chocolate smell, not fake chocolate) and violet leaf absolute (DaddyO, Bathos, Retread) It’s grittier than a lot of bars. It harder to rub in to your partners skin too, so you have to rub it in longer to get the brown chocolate in the skin. I give this 4 stars.

Here’s a short demo video and review i made of Lush Choco La La bar

Lush Kitchen January 2021 subscription box voting

These are the nine discontinued products Lush chose for us to vote on. They will pick four, and one exclusive never made before product.

These are the products that won

Here are my photos of these products.

Lush ‘Violet Nights’ liquid bath oil.

This is a former 1993 ‘Cosmetics To Go’ company product, (Lush before they called themselves Lush), which Lush reintroduced back in 2011, and again in the Lush Kitchen in 2014. Cosmetics To Go had four or five different bath oils. Knights in White Chocolate, Saucery, Moody Blues, and one more i can’t remember. I’ll have to look in my cosmetics to go catalogs.

This purple oil turns into a milky white in the water.

This is up for the vote for the Lush Kitchen Jan 2021 subscription box .

It’s made with Violet, sandalwood, vanilla, ylang ylang.

Some folks don’t like it because the smell is not good to them. I would rate this a 4 out of 5.

Lush makes a perfume called ‘V’ that is the same scent.

I have a video demo of its texture and opacity in a glass up close on my lushalot youtube channel and also on my lushalot instagram account if you want to check it out.

Lush ‘Vanilla Fountain’ bath bomb.

Up for the vote for the Lush Kitchen Jan 2021 subscription box.
This was originally created in 2008. And it’s been remade in the former incarnation of the Lush Kitchen 3 or 4 times.
I’d rate it a 3 out of 5

One time Lush Uk made giant vanilla fountains called Vanilla Mountain for purchase on their retail website that was three of four times the size.

Vanilla Fountain is made with the Lush ‘Vanillary’ perfume scent.
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Vanilla Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Tonka Absolute, Sandalwood, Gardenia Extract, Colour 45350, Vanilla Pod.

It’s a fast fizzer and not as creamy as you would think. it doesn’t color the water.
It smells sweet and vanillary because of the tonka bean.
Lush has made many products in this scent, you may have used one of them:

Vanilla Mountain bath bomb (xl)
Dear Santa wash card sheet
Heavenilli massage bar
Life’s a Beach showder
Vanillary Brûlée candle
Vanillary perfume
Vanilla Fountain bath bomb
Vanilla Puff dusting powder
Vanillary body spray
Vanilla in the Mist soap

Lush Times Summer 2008: When Mo brings a new Bath Ballistic to a Lush creative team meeting, she gets a bowl full of warm water, drops it in, then hands it around the room for everyone to smell. With the Vanilla Fountain, no-one wanted to let go of the bowl and pass it on. Without doubt, this little Ballistic is going to sell out in minutes. Simon Constantine made the comforting vanilla scent with natural vanilla absolute – the posh stuff made from vanilla pods – with a touch of restful sandalwood and a note of burnt caramel. It was inspired by the extraordinary deserts at Heston Blumental’s amazing restaurant, The Fat Duck at Bray (www.fatduck.co.uk).

Lush ‘Mrs Whippy’ bath bomb.
Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 Lush Kitchen subscription box.

This was made in the late 2000’s for Valentine’s day, only in the Uk.

It’s fruity in a slight berryish way because of the currant, then it’s got fruity buchu oil, and vanilla like tonka bean. It’s a slow melting fizzier that is creamy.

When Mark Constantine flew me to the Uk the first time i walked past a sweet shop and the hand written sign said ‘Mr and Mrs Whippy’ and i was so excited that i took a video of it 😀

I’ve got a tub demo of it on my lushalot youtube channel and also on my lushalot instagram.

Lush description
Lush Times: With her husband off making ice creams, Mrs Whippy needed something to do, didn’t she? Jack Constantine created this one for his wife; he wanted a soothing, creamy bath that would relax her and leave her skin as soft as a vegan alternative to silk.

I’d rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Soya Milk Powder, Tapioca Flour, Perfume, Cream of Tartar, Fairtrade Sugar, Cocoa Absolute, Black Currant, Tonka Absolute, Almond Essential Oil, Buchu Oil, Titanium Dioxide, Cocamide DEA, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Colour 45410

Lush’ bomb.
i would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.
Originally made in 2002.

Has the Lush “Karma’ fragrance

I have a bath demo on my Lushalot youtube channel. It makes a bright green water.
It’s a fast fizzer, fizzing wildly in the tub releasing its strong karma fragrance.

I liked this colorful Karma scented ballistic. It’s green and yellow because Lush thought it would be good to have a bath bomb in the same colors as the Lush logo was originally. It made a lovely bright yellow-green color in the water.

Ingredients: 180g Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Patchouli Oil, Orange Oil, Lavendin Oil, Pine Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Elemi Oil, Gardenia Extract, Colour 42050.

2002 Lush North America Lush Times description: There are only a few carefully chosen products to which we give the name ‘Lush’. The Lush Bath Bomb is the only one currently available; we named it because it encapsulates Lushness. It is green and yellow like a logo (with a little logo ribbon in case you hadn’t noticed) and it smells of our Karma perfume, which is pretty much what our shops smell like.

Lush ‘The Godmother’ soap.
Originally made in 2008.
It’s made in the Lush Candy Fluff scent, along with melting marshmallow moments bath melt and others in this scent family.

It’s a beautiful rose pink soap with pinkish blue glitter. It’s scent is nice and strong. Kind of a pink but spicy clove scent. Along the lines of Creamy Candy but brighter and a wee bit spicier.

I’d rate it a 4
The Godmother is not exceptionally drying to my hands nor is it moisturizing , but somewhere in the middle. I was surprised at how low lathering this soap was. The Godmother soap is palm oil free, so there is not as much lather as the prevously made Lush soaps which had palm oil in them. The scent stays on my hands for a goodly while. I did notice that the Godmother lather was different. No lather, more creamy.

Lush 2008 description Despite our Ballistics, skincare, haircare and all other wonderful things for our baths showers and bodies, people tend to call Lush “That soap shop”. This is fair, because we do make exceedingly good soaps. We looked into this (technically Pia looked into it and we were all very interested) and found that 68% of people in the UK wash their hands with washing up liquid. Thats just not right. Its not good for your hands. Stop it! Mo, our soap supreme, has made this special soap (scented with our best selling Snow Fairy scent) for keeping by the kitchen sink. Think of it as your fairy godmother for the hands.

@lush ‘Happy Blooming’ shower jelly.
Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 subscription box.

On one of my photos if you swipe left will show you what i think of this jelly. 😂 It’s so good i bought a bunch when they were being sold in the first incarnation of the Lush Kitchen in 2015.

This was made only by Lush UK and was never sold to the public.

It smells like cherries. It’s SO. DAMN. GOOD. I have a youtube video demo of it close up at the sink where i slice it and wash with it.

Some folks think it’s too sickly sweet or fake smelling. While it’s certainly strong it’s not a fake scent to me because it’s loaded with real cherries. And it also contains coconut. I usually don’t like very sweet things from Lush, but in the case of Happy Blooming it seems to be beyond my control because my mouth actually starts watering when I smell it. In my opinion, the jelly and the lotion are stronger in scent moreso than the bath oil melt & the solid fragrance are.

I would rate this a 6 out of 5 rating if i could. 😄

I took a couple of photos of the scent family years ago. The very first product made was the bath melt, in 2011, which has raised cherries on it. The bath melt is huge and you can break four pieces of it.

@lush Karma shower gel.

Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 subscription box

The scent reminds me of hippies from the 60’s and 70’s. Lush used to advertise it that way as well. 😀

I have a close up sink demo of this on my lushalot youtube channel showing how it lathers.

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate,Perfume, Patchouli Oil, Orange Oil, Lavendin Oil, Pine Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Elemi Oil, Gardenia Extract.

This is a shower gel with the Lush “Karma” scent of orange, patchouli and pine.
Karma shower gel is a much better way to get the Karma scent on your bod than say, the soap. It’s also possible to wash your hair with it or even use it as a bath foam. It’s easier to lather than the Karma soap. It’s thick and gelatenous. A little goes a long way on a shower pouff, vs. the soap gets smaller and disappears much quicker oz for oz. It also makes great bubbles in the tub. The lovely Karma fragrance stays on the skin long too! 😀

I’d rate this a 5 out of 5.

This is another HUGE scent family, having more than 15 products. I’ll add the washcloud (a non edible cotton candy type of product) on my @lushexclusives page with more info 😉

Lush ‘Heavenly Bodies’ buttercream. Up for the vote for the Jan 2021 box.
All pictures here are of the buttercream including the in store desert-like tower with chocolate shavings on it.

Butter Creams
Creamy Cakes of Glycerine Soap made in huge buckets and hand-rolled in petals, chocolate, cocoa butter and other unexpected ‘packaging’, our butter creams look like huge helpings of luxury dessert. At room temperature they start out smooth, soft and slippery, but if you’re the sensation-seeking type you can choose to chill or freeze them to turn them into blocks of invigoratingly refreshing shower soap.

My youtube a video where i demo & review heavenly bodies. 


I’d rate it a 4 out of 5

Ingredients: Water, Glycerine, Rhassoul Mud, Jojoba Oil, Cocoa Butter, Perfume, Tangerine Oil, Sweet Orange Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Cocoa Butter. 
old price 7.0 oz $14.40 Heavenly Bodies – 3.5 oz $7.20

Ohhh, there’s nothing better than smearing your favorite foody combo (orange and chocolate) all over yourself in the bath, and having it be less drying than soap. It’s a firm buttercream. I love the Sonic Death Monkey scent of this Heavenly Bodies buttercream. I do believe this choclate dipped orange scent is my favorite.

Lush description: Want a body like an angel? Got a body like a zombie? Revive your skin with a muddy mixture of chocolate, cocoa butter, refreshing orange juice, anti-microbial Rhassoul mud and stimulating tangerine oils. We scent each chunk of Heavenly Bodies Butter Cream with vanilla absolute, cocoa absolute (yes, you really can get natural chocolate perfume), tangerine and sweet orange so it smells rather like a chocolate orange cheesecake but it does taste like soap. For the best effect smooth it all over the outside of your body. You’ll smell like an angel and your skin will feel as soft as gossamer.

Scent Family: Sonic Death Monkey Shower Gel; Chocolate Whipstick Lip Balm

Lush ‘American Cream’ body lotion. I’ll put my demo video link of it in my profile here.

It’s up for the vote for the Jan 2021 subscription box, along with nine other discontinued products.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Almond Oil, Cocoa Butter, Glycerine, Vanilla Absolute, Clary Sage Oil, Lavender Oil, Benzoin, strawberry, Perfume.

First off-even though American Cream is advertised as having strawberry in it-it doesn’t smell like strawberry.
American Cream is a vanilla based scent which is akin to a vanilla milkshake, which is where the name comes from. also has clary sage, and lavender as its scent components, adding an herbal note. The other American Cream products have strawberry in them…but….American Cream products do not smell like strawberry.  It’s made with strawberry, it’s not strawberry scented.
I like to make that clear, so that people won’t spend their hard earned money on something that they think will be strawberry scented, only to be disappointed when it’s not.

The body lotion is a thinner consistency. It’s nice. I’m kind of jaded because i’ve seen Lush offer this MANY times over the last 15 years. So to me it’s not exclusive. There’s kind of an inside joke amongst old skool Lushies-‘Oh there’s the exclusive American Cream body lotion again.’
It used to be much thicker.
It’s nice, not the best Lush lotion and certainly not the worst. i’d give it a 3 out of 5 rating.

The scent family of products is HUGE. The very first Lush product with this scent is called ‘Shimmy Shimmy’ iridescent massage bar. I show most of the products (not all) in a photo i took that i’ve attached here on this post.

Lush Kitchen November subscription box ( Christmas ) 2020

We’re voting on these

When i get the sub box that i order i’ll add the unboxing video here.

Bling Crosby bubble bar

Glogg shower gel

Hokkaido (Winterbath) bath bomb

Jilted Elf shower jelly

Maple Taffy lip balm

Mr Punch soap

Snowcake shower gel

Snowdrop bath bomb

Sparkler bath bomb

Here’s what got the most votes, and what was in our subscription box and my unboxing.

Snowdrop

Initially made in 2008 by Lush UK.

See a video link below.

It’s an all white bomb with a large polished sugar crystal on top. It doesn’t make bath art and it’s a fast fizzier. No matter who reviews this bomb, the consensus is that this smells heavenly. 😊 It’s orange and mint, which is a rare combination for Lush. It’s also slightly sweet. I love the scent.

Here’s a video of it from Comfortinscents on instagram

Ingredients: 2829 Snowdrop £2.95

Large Sugar Crystals, Perfume, Iridescent, Mandarin Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Peppermint Oil, Limonene, *Linalool.

Lush Times Xmas 2008: Astonishingly refreshing, head-clearing beauty! You might be tempted by the bright colours of the other Lush Ballistics, but promise us that you won’t miss out on the new Snowdrops bath. If the big sugar crystals don’t tempt you, and the iridescent sparkles aren’t your bag please take one home ewith you all the same. Drop it in the bath and your life will change for the better. Drop it in the bath and your life will change for the better. take the head clearing, reviving citrus scents of mandarin and grapefruit, then add a genius dash of peppermint and you have the most amazing, life affirming Ballistic ever to sneak up on you and give you the slap in the face that you need (metaphorically speaking of course). Once a Snowdrops bomb has woken you up in the morning, you will need to buy more. But no! These are seasonal specials! Buy a big airtight container and stock up on as many as you can carry – that’s if we haven’t got there first and bought them all.

Lush Lime Smoothie

4 out of 5 rating

There are Lush smoothies i like more than lush lime and lush smoothies that i like less than lush lime.

Lush Lime has the same scent as the Lush ‘karo-karounde’ bath bomb.


Ingredients: fresh butternut squash infusion, glycerine, olive oil, almond oil, vegetable soap, fresh lime juice, sodium lauryl sulphate, fresh strawberry juice, grapefruit oil, karo-karounde absolute, perfume

Pokey stick of doom thickness test: http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y181/l … ystick.jpg

Review: Wow. While Whitewash and Turkish Delight still wins because of the consistency, Lush Lime is my pick for one of the best smelling Lush smoothies. I couldn’t wait to hold it up to my husbands nose so he could smell how wonderful it is and at last agree with me. He said it smelled medicinal and weird. I smell limes, limes, and more wonderful limes. Sweet tangy tart fresh and the consistency is not as stiff as Lush Turkish Delight and Whitewash, it’s more of a thinner consistency like Creamed Almond and Coconut smoothie.

The pic has a spoonful of it for a thickness test of sorts. It looks exactly like Creme Fraiche. I’m so hooked on the smell though, and it leaves skin soft. How do they do it?

LT 1998 description: The fresh fruit juicy Lush Lime Smoothie gets your body squeaky clean while the oils of almond and olive smooth and relax. A true joy to use, as the scents of strawberry, grapefruit, and karo-karounde refresh you and the bathroom.
