Perle De Sel

4 out of 4 rating see my 3 mi ute Tub Demo Video Below.

This years Snowcake product is a bath bomb called Perle De Sel. I was glad to see this replacement of the traditional Lush snowcake Christmas bomb ‘Lush Pud’. I quite like this all white version vs. the brown color of the previous years.

Perle De Sel has a lovely bit of gold nuggets in the outside middle of the bomb.

Snowcake is a very mild scent, having almond benzoin and rose together makes a light, comforting scent. It smells like a cross between snow and something yummy.

Lush has made many products throughout the years in this scent and this years product is a most elegant version in my opinion.

As it dissolves a lovely shade of aqua blue spews out of the bomb making the water shimmer with the addition of blue and silver sparkle.

Absolutely beautiful.

I would but another one but i wouldnt stock up on them.

Here’s a pic with my vintage Lush Snowcake perfume.

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.

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.

Marzibain

 

Review: This was made to smell like “Snowcake” soap. It’s a scrumptious scent of light roses and almond paste, like Marzipan cookies. The ony things I use with a Marzibain bubble bar (so as not to sully it’s sublimlely scrummy scent) is “Snowcake” soap of course and also like to use it and then spritz on some Snowcake perfume.

Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, cream of tartar, sodium laureth sulfate, lauryl betaine, perfume, cocamide DEA, benzoin resinoid, cassie absolute, rose absolute, whole almond.

2001 Yuletide LT description: This Marzibain is one of those Lush specials for people with a sweet tooth who don’t want to eat too much sugar; it’s a sweet “cake” of bubble bath from the bubble bar that smells just like marzipan with the added bonus fragrance of rose and fruity cassie buds (same scent as Snowcake and Big Ed). For piles of white, fluffy, marzipan scented bubbles crumble the whole thing into the running bathwater; it will satisfy your craving for sweet things with no guilt whatsoever.

From the 2002 Yuletide LT: The Marzibain is back, smelling like extra tasty marzipan, the same as last year but not as crumbly like almond icing, more solid like my grandma’s Christmas almond buns (you wuoldn’t have wanted to eat one of these either). You pronounce it to rhyme with marzipan (bain, French for bath = funny Lush pun) Marziban not Marzibane, or else it’s not funny at all is it?

Cyanide Pill

 

4 out of 4 rating

See my demo video below.  Cyanide Pill has a fruity creamy, comforting kind of beginning scent, then comes a bitter almond note, almost makes me wrinkle my nose.  I smell a vague cherryish note too.  There is a silver glitter in the middle of this yellow bath bomb, which disperses into the water and looks pretty and glittery.  Lush North America made a soap in 2015 called “Hands of Friendship’ which shares it’s scent with the Cyanide Pill.

When Lush had a gallery space built to introduce their new Gorilla III range of perfumes from their new “Death and Decay” series, they had a gallery room for each perfume they were introducing, including site and sound to match the perfume.  Cyanide perfume was one of them gallery displays.  However Lush never released the Cyanide perfume, turns out they only used the scent for the gallery display.  We’re told that this new Cyanide pill bath bomb has the scent of that Gorilla III ‘Cyanide’ gallery room.  I’ll have to try another one to make sure but i’m not sure i like the smells of this one. 2015 3.50 gpb / $5.75
