Sakura

3 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo video below

Mimosa in the moonlight. I knew this smell right away, I used to walk around these trees at my fathers house that had the fuzzy lavender colored flowers on it and the smell was heavenly. A sweet yet powdery flower the mimosa. It is lavender in color and fuzzy like a soft pink brush. Sometimes it smells like a light melon scent too. Mimosa is what the “Sakura” ballistic is scented with. This has no color in the water.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Sea Salt, Lemon Oil, Mimosa Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Gardenia Extract, FD&C Red No. 4, FD&C Blue No. 1

Lush 2006 description: Sakura is the japanese name for cherry blossom which aptly describes this pretty pale pink ballistic. Sakura is dappled with bursts of pale green that rise up to a bright pink and green layer of exfoliating sea salt at the top of the bomb

This has been one of Lush’s regular year round bath bombs since 2004 or so. And its still sold in stores today.

Its a fast dissolving fizzing type of bath bomb, not a slow, melty, foam typeof bomb. It has a lovely floral scent with blue and pink salt crystals on the top.

There’s one or two more products in this scent family that arent in my group picture.

Squeak

Lush exclusive Squeak shampoo.

Made as an exclusive for the July 2021 subscription box.

Made with big chunks of sea salt and lots of yummy tropical fruits such as mango, papaya, pineapple, lemon, and kiwi. Smells even more fruity and delicious than Lush I Love Juicy shampoo.

It’s a thick consistency, sort of like the consistency of Big liquid shampoo.

This is made for fine, limp hair and oily i normal hair. It’s not for my dry, thick, wavy hair. But i’m going to use it.

This was a surprise in the Lush July 2021 subscription box.

Have you tried it? Do you like it? Or not so much?

I wonder if Lush will have it in stores for the general public or if it will stay an exclusive, one time thing.

Antiphilitron

2 out of 5 rating

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

for oily 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!

see my 2 minute video of its consistency below

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.

Sleepy bath oil tablet

5 out of 5 rating see my tub demo vid below 😊

Sleepy

I’ve used about all 12 of the Lush bath oil tablets, Bath baubles and solid bath oil non bons during the last several years, and this is one of my faves. i love the Twilight/Sleepy scent. It’s comforting, and creamy.

Sleepy ingredients

“If sleep is evading you, this combination of essential oils will help get you ready for a good night’s rest. The fragrance has been designed to help you sleep: lavender is a soothing, mind-clearing and calming fragrance, used in aromatherapy to treat insomnia and aid restful sleep, while benzoin and tonka call to mind a milky caramel malt drink.”

I haven’t seen a bath tablet in a couple of years so i was excited when i opened the March 2021 subscription box.

You can either put the whole thing in or cut it at each of the 3 lines to have enough for three baths.

For the tub demo i used 1/3 of the tablet. See my photos of it below.

I like how the tub wasn’t too slippery like some lush bath oils can be. It wasn’t oily feeling or too much. 1/3 of the tablet was just right. I would imagine using the whole thing would make the water even more purple. So pretty. It’s almost too pretty to use.

Bathos liquid bubble bath

5 out of 5


Ingredients:
Contains: violet leaf infusion, sodium lauryl ether sulphate, sea salt, lauryl betaine, violet leaf absolute, otto of rose, jasmine absolute, ylang ylang, bergamot oil, oil of cloves, sandalwood oil, cassie absolute, perfume, chlorophyllin, methyl paraben, propyl paraben.

It’s the liquid form that came before the solid purple bathos bar which Lush sold in their stores for 15 years.

Lush Times: Bathos is the bath foam for those candle-lit champagne swilling occasions when you feel like sharing the warm water with someone you’re fond of. It is a deep violet bath which smells deeply of violets with hints of soothing rose, calming jasmine, refreshing bergamot, rejuvenating sandalwood and cheering cassie, all of which are traditionally known in their native countries for their aphrodisiac qualities. Don’t say we didn’t warn you. 

:D

Review: The original was called Bathos liquid bubble bath. It’s the same fragrance as the more current purple “Bathos” bubble bar but this Bathos bath foam is in liquid form and it’s green in color.
It makes pretty good bubbles but I still think the solid bubble bars make more bubbles. It left the same lovely violet leaf and clove oil scent on my skin as the hard bubble bar. That’s one thing about Bathos, it’s not a light weight in the scent department, and the bath foam is no exception. I’m glad lush re-made this for us.
