13 Rabbits bubble bath

Ingredients:  cocoa butter, laureth 3, cinnamon sticks, walnut oil, peanut oil, perfume, cocoa, whole cloves, ginger oil

Lush Times: This was inspired by a binge on McVities new dark chocolate ginger biscuits. That should give you a flavour of what’s in store. After boiling cinammon sticks and clove buds, we mix in our favourite Elizabethan blend of spice oils, ginger it all up with some ginger oil, pour in the dark chocolate liquer and add baths full of bubbles. When used in the shower makes everything smell surprisingly like a chocolate cream bar.
The story so far:
In 1939 Professor Peyton discovered El Tajin in southern mexico. He also discovered the exploits of 13 Rabbit, a ruler in the 1st century. His name, derived from the Mesoamerican calendar, is written with a rabbit surrounding two bars next to three dots. The Mayans were keen on spice and chocolate so we named this after him. All perfectly logical and not at all contrived!

Review: When you squeeze it out of the bottle, out comes a thick, milk chocolate colored liquid. This really does smell like milk chocolate, except a less sweet milk chocolate than is what might be in a candy bar. Right underneath the chocolate note is the ginger scent. Ahh, now we have a slightly spicy chocolate. the chocolatey scent does not last on the skin too long unfortunately but the opportunity for hedonism in the shower or bath increases two fold with this product.

Aside from this bubble bath Lush also made a 13 rabbits shower gel, and a 13 rabbits bath melt.

All That Jas

Ingredients: Vetivert Oil, Candy Flowers, Gardenia Extract, Jasmine Oil, Vanillin.

Review: This Came out in North America at the same time that Lush International (UK) had “Fairy Jasmine”  bath bomb.  The color is even better than Fairy Jasmine. There’s an extra something in here like vanilla which makes it even more smooth and yummy. There is no glitter in this Jasmine scented bomb as there is in Lush’s other Jasmine ballistic “Fairy Jasmine” but i like it anyway.

2006 Lush Times description: All That Jasmine is a shamelessly sexy bath bomb disguised as an innocuous pastel green colored ball with an innocent, little sugar flower on top but once it hits the water it starts to work its wicked ways.

 

 

Here’s a video i made of the All That Jas bath bomb in the tub

Snowcake soap

4 out of 5

This is the 2020 version of Snowcake soap

Lush makes their classic Snowcake soap in a completely different design every year.

i’ll add all the different looks here.

for 2020 it looks like this:

This year Snowcake smells even yummier than it has in past years. Sometimes it has smelled kind of like Playdoh. I don’t know what Lush added to it this year but it smells more like vanilla icing. or marzipan fruit.

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.

Here’s what it looked like in 2017. It’s Gold on the top.

 

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.  Lush first made the Snow on Snow powder for forum members only.

The 2016 Version called ‘Snowcastle’

 

 

Here’s what it looked like Christmas 2018

and my review of it below.

A new version of the classic Lush Christmas ‘Snowcake’ soap. Lush has been carrying the tradition of various different versions of their classic Snowcake soap since the early 2000’s.

This year Lush went all out and made a gourmet soap in the Snowcake scent, but with an additional squishy, yummy looking ‘saucey’ topping. It looks like fruit and Oh my goodness I want a whole wheel lol. This is a gourmet soap this year with extra moisturizing properties.
