Cardamom and Coffee

4 out of 5 rating

See my demo and review video below.

file-dec-04-6-31-37-pm

 

I adore cardamom.  I mean i really like it A LOT, so keep that in mind.

Cardamom and coffee has cardamom, which is a fragrant spice, some of you might recognize it’s lovely scent in Chai tea.

At first spray, it has a absolutely mind-blowing yumminess factor to it.  
Also, this perfume has a lot of throw.

The rose oil in this is not a primary player here. ¬†It adds a lovely but light floral note. ¬†I don’t smell it and say “I smell rose”.

The coffee isn’t primary either. ¬†Right now anyway the cardamom is the most primary, and i couldn’t be happier about that.

Unfortunately, at 30 minutes the scent diminished quite a lot. ¬†It’s just a remnant of it’s former self. ¬†This is the only reason i give this a 4 out of 5 rating. If the scent stayed as strong as when i first sprayed it, this would surely be a 5 out of 5 rating.

 

 
 

I’m Home

3.5-5.0 rating.

See my demo review video of this perfume below.
file-dec-04-4-06-56-pm

This is one of a 7-10 new perfumes in Lush Gorilla IV series, which will be sold to the public in the very near future.

This perfume was meant to remind one of coming home after a hard day and the way a home smells comforting, kind of like a mub of hot chocolate.  This perfume has vanilla and Cocoa in it.  When first sprayed, i can definitely smell the cocoa, it smells yummy.

On the dry down it gets kind of muddy, but once it dries completely the cocoa note returns.  It smells warm, like coming home to a warm home with someone cooking something yummy.

 

Once it dries completely however the scent dissipates very much.  This perfume in particular goes away quicker than the other Gorilla perfumes. I solved that by just spraying it two or three times on me, or spraying it a few times throughout the day.

In the video i smell it on my arm at wet spray, drying down, and total dry down.

Glogg

5 out of 5 rating

This is a spicy, booz-y fragrance. ¬†It smells like Christmas brandy punch or Norwegian Glogg. ¬†It’s warming, just like a cup of Glogg would be in the wintertime.

glogg-vi

Ingredients: Cinnamon Stick and Clove Infusion (Cinnamomum cassia, Eugenia caryophyllus), Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Fresh Organic Orange Juice (Citrus Aurantium dulcis), Propylene Glycol, Red Wine, Fresh Organic Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Fine Sea Salt, Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus sinensis), Clove Leaf Oil (Eugenia caryophyllus), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Cinnamon Leaf Oil (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax tonkinensis pierre), Brandy, *Cinnamal, *Coumarin, *Eugenol, Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 14700, Methylparaben

 

Lush Times: Glögg is a Lush interpretation of a Swedish spin on festive mulled wine. It will make your body feel warmer as you inhale the spicy aroma. A bottle of Glogg is a fairly boozy cocktail to liven up Christmas baths and showers. We poured lashings of red wine and brandy in there to stimulate your body while you lather, with cinnamon and clove infusion for spice and fresh fruit juices to get you squeaky clean.

Lush Pud

3.5 out of 5 rating

lushpud650

Ingredients: £2.25 200g Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Aloe Vera Extract (Aloe barbadensis), Clove Powder (Eugenia caryophyllus), Lemon Peel Powder (Citrus limonum), Cassie Absolute (Acacia farnesiana), Benzoin Resinoid, (Styrax benzoin), Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia), Propylene Glycol, Benzyl Benzoate, Perfume, Candy Holly Leaf.

 

Review: I got a fresh one once and it changed my mind about the Pud. True, it leaves a brown ring to clean up. True, it makes the water poo brown. Turn off the lights, light a candle and use this. It smells like spice cake. And it lasts. I bathed my twins in this on Christmas and they smelled like two little spice cake sweeties all weekend. This is grand to combine with Christmas Cracker bubble bar, Orange and Spice soap or with a Jack Froth or Marziban bubble bar. It’s like bathing in Christmas desert.

lushpudcloseup

Lush Times description: Looks like a pudding, smells like a pudding, fizzes like a spicy Bath Ballistic. Fill your bath with warm water and drop in the Ballistic for a fizzing, fragrant, relaxing soak.

 

Notes: The newer ones are much lighter brown. almost tan colored, and they smell more like Snowcake soap then spicy Christmas pudding. I like the original ones way better because it was spicy.

Snowcake

5 out of 5 rating

lushsnowcakesg1

This shower gel has the wonderful scent of Snowcake soap and Marzibain bubble bar. Firstly I was never knocked out about Snowcake soap. It was just “Meh” to me for years. But this shower gel has changed my mind completely about the Snowcake scent. When I opened the bottle I couldn’t believe how fresh it smelled! Everythying good that I could smell about Snowcake was in this bottle of shower gel. It is nice and strong and fresh smelling. It’s not sweet. ¬†It smells lightly of rose and almond. ¬†A clean, comforting scent. It’s got that marzipan scent, with a bit of rose and a bit of almond. I’m a Snowcake believer. I give this 5 stars.

Candy Cane

See my 5 minute demo and review video of this below ūüôā

img_5770

This has a lightly minty scent, and it does have¬†real mint in it. ¬†There are also a couple of other notes alongside the mint, such as, Cypress, which always reminds me of being amongst¬†the high mountain trees. ¬†Someone described Lush ‘Candy Cane’ smoothie rhoulade¬†as having a scent that Men would like too, and i would agree. ¬†‘Candy Cane’ does not have a strong scent of mint like Lush minty “Christingle’ body conditioner. There’s a slight sweetness to this rhoulade, but it’s not very sweet. ¬†It’s more refreshing than sweet to my nose.

It doesn’t strip my already dry skin¬†of it’s¬†moisture when i wash with it.

I would give this a 4 out of 5 stars.

Here’s my 5 minute demo and review of the Lush Candy Cane smoothie rhoulade.

Sugar Plum Fairy lip scrub and lip tint

See my demo video below 5 out of 5 rating

file-oct-16-2-13-11-pm
The¬†new¬†‘Sugar Plum Fairy’ Lip scrub has a scent similar to the Comforter, having currants in the mix. The Sugar Plum Fairy lip tint is a bit dry going on. I was afraid the color of this lip tint would be too a bit too dark for me, especially since it is quite a cool toned color. The smell of the lip tint is very light..

The returning Santa lip scrub, which smells like Cola to me, and the true red of the Santa Baby lip tint. Though the lip tint is a little dry going on and has some fall out crumbles.The smell is incredible and i much prefer the sugar plum fairy scrub out of the bunch.

I would give the Sugar Plum Fairy scrub a 5 out of 5 rating.
I would give the Santa Baby scrub a 3.5 out of 5 rating.
I would give Sugar Plum Fairy lip tint a 3.5 out of 5 rating.
I would give the Santa Baby lip tints a 2.5 out of 5 rating.

Here’s a video of the 2016 ‘Sugar Plum’ Fairy’ lip tint and lip scrub

Lush Description: Sparkling, ruby red bubble bath with a bewitching fragrance of rose and carnation. Crumble under running bath water for mounds of fragrant bubbles.

file-oct-02-4-59-45-pm

Here’s one from 2005

 

Review: This has Rose, Tangerine, Carnation and Geranium. Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar slice was made to be the same scent as Lush’s former “Potion” body lotion. It’s a lovely, gentle, fruity, spicy carnation floral. The glitter on this bubble bar is ruby¬†red.

Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar make the water a beautiful red color. It makes loads and loads of bubble, especially the one i had because it’s so fresh and squishy. My only complaint would be that the scent isn’t as strong on the skin as I’d like. ¬† The scent of Potion in the bath is so lovely though. ¬†I think Lush would be successful selling this one all year round.

Here’s a demo video i made showing this beautifully bubble bar in the bath tub.

 

Here’s a demo of the original (MUCH more glittery version)

Autumn Leaves

4 out of 4 rating – se my tub demo and review video of this below

$6.95

A beautiful fall inspired bath bomb in the shaper of a leaf, and having the scent of Lush popular “Grass‘ scent.

This gorgeous Winter 2016 bath bomb has an earthy scent of cut grass and is¬†made with sandalwood, bergamot, neroli, and maple sap. It’s got a beautiful green shimmer on it.

The colors in this bath bomb remind one of Autumn, with the green, orange and gold colors. This is a slow fizzer, and watching the beautiful colors swirling around me was beautiful.

This stunning bath bomb brings the beauty of nature’s autumnal metamorphosis right into your tub. Watching it dissolve in the bath is like watching the trees turn colors, only in fast forward! Breathe in the grounding yet uplifting perfume, full of bergamot, neroli and sandalwood, and brace yourself for winter’s arrival.
