After 8:30


Review: This is nice. I like it more than the other chocolate lush massage bars. It really does smells like peppermint and chocolate. It’s good for rubbing it on your man after a late dinner..

50g 2.75gpb

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate, Synthetic musk,Peppermint Oil, Perfume.

2001 Lush Times description: Still on the the best sellers, the old favourite After 8:30 attracts people with its mint chocolate scent. Often people want to know if it’s edible and while it wont’ do you any harm if you accidentally lick a body part covered in After 8:30, we’d recommend that you use it for what it does best, moisturizing your skin with cocoa butter and stimulating the mind and body with peppermint which was, incidentally, used by the ancient Hebrews in perfumes because of its aphrodisiac properties. It brings a dinner a deux to the perfect conclusion, and massaging your skin with chocolate is so much better for you than eating it.

 

Jingle Spells

See my video of this below

Review: A Christmas ballistic that I’ve been hooked on since I first tried it in late 2001. A slight Licorice scent to me, because of the fennel I guess, and that’s what makes it a different scent.  It has a lovely fruity note to it as well (the tangerine). It smells enchanting to me.   It turns the water purple and has silver and black foil stars inside for added effect. Lush claims that the herbs and plants in Jingle Spells helps when you over imbibe with drink during the holidays.

It smells magical yet feminine because of the ylang ylang.   I think I’ve had about 25-50 in total throughout the years.

Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, perfume, juniperberry oil, tangerine oil, fennel oil, ylang ylang oil, twinkling stars

Lush products that share this scent are;

Jingle Jelly

Magic of Christmas Fun bar

Red Rice soap

Wizard bubble bar

Lush Times 2002 Yuletide description: Jingle Spells was last year’s Christmas ballistic bestseller, so we decided to leave it just exactly the way it was; why mess with success? It still has little stars in it and it still smells of juniperberry (the ones they make gin from) and revitalising tangerine with fennel, which smells a bit like aniseed, but not too strongly, plus beautiful floral ylang ylang blossom. Jingle Spells is a magically refreshing, detoxing bath; we recommend it as a Christmas hangover cure (but with out po-faced caps on we’d also like to recommend that you don’t drink too much as it’s very bad for your skin).

Notes: See Jingle Spells (star-shaped)

Description: This is the Star-Shaped Jingle Spells that was in the Lush Christmas 2006 gift called “Wishing on a Star”. Same great fruity, fennel Jingle Spells scent. Still helps in time of too much partying.

 

 

Review: A Christmas ballistic that I’ve been hooked on since I first tried it in late 2001. A slight Licorice scent to me (because of the fennel I guess), a lovely fruity scent (the tangerine), and a Juniper/Gin (some Gins are made with juniper berries). That’s what I smell when I sniff this enchanting ballistic. The smell lasts once the the water too. It turns the water purple and has silver and black foil stars inside for added effect. Lush claims that the herbs and plants in Jingle Spells helps when you over imbibe with drink during the holidays. I love having one with an Icon bbs and it’s absolutely decadent and wonderful. It smells magical yet feminine because of the ylang ylang, but there’s not alot of ylang ylang in here which is good in my opinion. I truly Love this ballistic. If you like a light sort of licorice smell you’ll probably like this. I think I’ve had about 60-75 in total throughout the years.

Bon Bain Bonnard

Review: A very pretty ballistic, it’s white with pastel pink, blue and yellow soap confetti and yellow, pink, blue salt crystals in the outter middle of it. It’s powdery and floral and slightly perfumey. The smell is similar to “Sakura” ballistic but with a strange undertone to my nose that keeps this from being stellar to me. Bon Bain Bonnard was fairly popular. The other three “Artist” ballistics that Lush has made are “Monet’s Garden” and “Kiss Me Klimt” and “Still Life“.

Ingredients: Bicarb, Citric Acid, Coarse Atlantic Sea Salt, Rose Oil, Perfume, Orange Oil, Crocin, Colorform Turquoise, Colorform Crimson.

Lush Times 2002 description: This is the Artistic Bath Bomb, named after Bonnard, influenced by his paintings of the nudes in the bath and inspired by his work ‘White Interior’. Arguably one of the best smelling bath bombs. The sea salt will make your body feel new, and the orange blossoms will do the same for your mind. A bomb for everyone in search of inspiration.

Snowcake soap

Ingredients: Water, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Perfume, Sodium Stearate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Titanium Dioxide, Benzoin Resinoid, Rose Absolute, Cassie Absolute, Glycerine, Sodium Chloride, EDTA, Tetrasodium Editronate, Benzyl Benzoate.

 

If you get a good, fresh piece you smell an almond paste and roses scent. It’s delicate but scrummy.  Snow cake soap has particularly creamy lather.  Lush has introduced Snowcake soap every Christmas for many, many years.

 

Lush Description: Hand and body soap: Smells like the delicious almond icing on your cake: feels like almond mousse on your skin.

 

Scent Family: Snowcake Perfume; Snowcake Shower Gel; Snow On Snow Dusting Powder; Smitten Hand Cream; Oops! Almond Kisses Facial Moisturiser; Marzibain Bubble Bar Slice; Big Ed Yuletide Soap

 

 

Even more, i love the Lush ‘Marzibain’ bubble bar which Lush made in the Snowcake scent.  It’s a cream colored bar with an almond on top.  Makes gorgeous, volumunous, creamy bubbles. I also am very fond of the dusting powder in this scent called “Snow on Snow’.  It’s delicate, and soft, like sweet fallen snow.  Lush has only made the powder twice.  When Lush first made the Snow on Snow powder for forum members only.
