Pooh Stix

This bomb doesn’t color the water.  It’s an old school classic lush bomb from 1998.  It has stick pieces of cinnamon in the bath bomb.  They are supposed to represent a game of throwing six into the river on a bridge in the book Winnie the Pooh’.

This is a fast fizzer in the tub.  It fizzes away quickly.  It smells spicy and licorice-y.  I like black licorice and i love cinnamon.  I’ve used this to perfume the bathroom or my bedroom.  It smells yummy.

Beautiful Pea Green


Lush Spring 1999 UK description: Beautiful P Green Soap is very, very green – coloured with spinach and chlorophyll – made in a big block which looks rather like a deep, translucent freshwater pond with flowers and leaves floating on top. Fortunately, it doesn’t smell like one. However, it does have a deep, dark green scent [for those of you who smell in colour] with sandalwood, benzoin and a hint of tangerine, providing the delicious odour. Continuing the poetry theme, this one was inspired by The Owl and the Pussycat who, you may remember, went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat. (You get a slice off the 25 kilogram pond, not the whole thing, so you may get a slice of waxed flower or leaf.

(Dark leafy greens, light fruity note and slightly incensey)


Ingredients: vegetable soap, propylene glycol, water, perfume, sodium lauryl sulphate, sodium stearate, fresh spinach, sandalwood oil, tangerine oil, gardenia extract, chlorophyll, chrysanthemum flowers, labdanum.






Fern Shui

DC’ed 1999


Ingredients: bicarb, citric acid, perfume, lemon oil, lemongrass oil, litsea cubeba oil, fern (aspidum s.p.), lemongrass, lime leaves, gardenia extract

Lush 1999 description:
A fresh, tangy but mellow bomb full of ferns and pieces of lemon grass, reminscent of a walk through a forest. As the water runs away you can read the pattern which the fern leaves make on the bath, like reading your fortune in tea leaves in the bottom of a cup. This is Lush’s homage to daft fads. It is scented with delightful lemon grass oil, which we shall continue to use long after the current trend for sticking it in every dish in astonishingly expensive London restaurants has long since been forgotten.

I was surprised at how much plant material thereis in this bath bomb. It definitely lives up to it’s name. Tons of plant stuff.
Alsosurprising to me is the smell. I love the smell. It’s not like anything i’ve smelled before bath bomb wise. It’s fresh, lemongrass and the pleasant smell of greenery. The first time i used this bath bomb i didn’t use anything to contain the pieces of ferns. The second time i used this is got a small kitchen strainer and put the bomb in there so i got just the water, not the plants.


Lush 1999 UK description: Drop a flower garden in your tub.

Ingredients: Marigold, Chamomile, Amaranth petals and Geranium oil.

This is a floral scented ballistic with lots of amaranth flower petals. It’s floral but it’s a bright lightly sweet floral. The Chamomile lends it’s brightness to it so that the floral isn’t too floral, more of a fresh Spring floral scent. I would use this again.


Bom Perignon


Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Tangerine Oil (Citrus reticulata), Grapefruit Oil (Citrus grandis), Perfume, Colour Solution 18050.

Lush 1999 description: This is the ideal present for everyone who is celebrating but not drinking for reasons of health, religion, calorie counting, age or having gone a bit too far last time you celebrated and not wanting to do it again for while (Nathan? Are you reading this?) Each Bom Perignon contains two reviving tangerine and grapefruit Ballistics;throw one in the bath whenever you feel like celebrating (or when you’ve celebrated a bit too much the previous night).

This is cute. Shaped like a bottle with a flat back.  The scent is what i would’ve liked Champagne Snow Showers/Celebrate to smell like.  It’s more fruity.  It’s a fast fizzer.  Doesn’t turn the water any particular color.  The scent is a strong, slightly sweet grapefruit.  The green foil covering was only available back in 1999 because it was sold as a gift.
