Lush ‘The Sicilian’ bath bomb. Made in the early 2000’s. Discontinued about four years later.
this is one of five products here that are up for the vote for the August 2021 Lush subscription box.
This bath bomb was always a staple for me, and probably becuase my favorite smell is the smell of fresh peeled oranges.
Its a fast fizzing bomb not a slow melting creamy one. no bath art. no glitter.
This is made with four different orange ingredients: Mandarin, Orange, Neroli, and Tangerine. It also has marigold flower petals mixed in and an orange slice.
The reference comes from the book/movie ‘The Godfather’ which is about a mafia boss from Sicily (and one of my favorite movies). In it the director has something about oranges in every killing scene. 😊
Lush made asoap called Sunny Citrus which is in the same scent.
Lush 2005 Description: Why Sicilian? Well, we named it thus because of the organic Sicilian oranges we slice up and put inside each one and because its sunny colour and refreshing citrus scent remind us of the fruit trees in Sicily’s fertile valleys. We pack it with refreshing, uplifting orange, tangerine and mandarin oils to make us feel almost as good as if we were tootling around on a Vespa with the warm wind messing up our hairdo.
LT 2004: The Sicilian is a bath for brightening up dull days;even sunny days can appear dull when there’s nothing exciting to look forward to. If you know your’re going to spend all day in meetings, or in a room with no daylight or haivng tea with yoru dullest relative thake a Sicilian bath first. The reviving essential oils, made from Sicilian oranges, mandarins, tangerines and orange flowers will cheer you up so much you might actually find you enjoy yourself! Share citrus Sicilians with your co-workers and relatives and all your days will be summer.
This is a solid/naked packageless body lotion exclusive to the LushLabs at lush.co.uk
While i did not like the previous naked body lotion ‘Once Upon a Time’ that lush made for Christmas 2017, this one, Little Pot of Energy, is different.
Its not oily nor greasy. Its a drier consistency than ive seen before. Almost how a dry deo goes on. Theres no tacky feeling when you apply it.
I like the smell. Its made with oranges and grapefruit, as i explain in my demo and review video below.
the bottom line is that this works for me. it moisturizes my skin without feeling oily, and it snells great.
i would actually use this everyday, and i might even buy another one.
Lush: Move mountains. Fight lethargy. Deliver a dose of vitalising citrus straight to the skin. It’s a bolt of lightening to the brain: a sweep of orange puree that’s electric sharp to sniff but smooth as butter on your body thanks to a base of Fair Trade Colombian cocoa butter. Supercharge your skin with a sweep of brightening orange and grapefruit pulp and reboot your mind with a perfume flavour so fresh you can nearly taste it. Motivation’s never been this mouthwatering.
I pressed very hard on it when it was wet and it didn’t budge. It’s not a ‘smooshy’ consistency. It’s firm, but what comes off of it slowly is foam. It’s kind of like washing with the foam of a bath bomb, one of the creamier frothier bath bombs though.
This is nothing like their body conditioners, there’s no slippery, or goopy stuff in here. No cocoa butter, no oils.
Nor is this at all like their naked shower gels.
It doesn’t feel like it has cocoa butter in it (it doesn’t), and it smells good. It’s not too faint of a scent, but its not necessarily the strongest scented product either.
Its made with the Twilight scent.
It seems like one could certainly get multiple showers with this. At LEAST two, maybe more.
I do a wet demo of this in my video below both in the shower and at the sink.
This is a cute bath bomb. I love the tree shape of it.
This was made with the Lush “Breath of God’ fragrance.
The fragrance is a combination of two Lush scents “Inhale’ and ‘Exhale’.
There are masculine notes such as cedar wood, sandalwood,, and feminine notes such as rose. Together they form the classic Breath of God fragrance, which Lush has sold since 2008. Men would like it but women would like it too It’s both earthy and airy in the same fragrance.
Lush has made a bath bomb In the past called “Inhale Exhale‘ with a similar fragrance.
The bath bomb is a fast fizzes and makes a beautiful, not often seen, lime green water. So uplifting and hopeful, like Spring.
On August 24 Lush Uk will introduce some new products under the title ‘Lush Moods’, in their stores.
Some of the things they’ll start selling at that time in uk stores include:
Vanillary body spray
Magic body scrub
Scrub Scrub Scrub
I’m not clear at this time if the new Lush Labs Shower bombs and packageless Atmospgere gels will be part of the store items or not. Ill be adding the new Atmosphere gels that i bought here on my blog in the next 24 hours
I’m also not clear on if lush plan on selling these on line or not.
part 1 of my Indie bath and body vendor series is here.
Here is a haul video below that i recorded with a bath cocktail video made from all these products.
The scent of real marshmallow was the overriding note in this box. Yummy.
This is my first themed bath box.
I have heard of the Mad Bombers in my periphery but had never looked to see what they offer. Again, nothing against the Mad Bombers, i was just too knee deep in Lush to try any other company.
This changed when i saw a product from one of my favorite bath vendors fly past the screen, Bedazzle your skin, who has collaborated with The Mad Bombers on this box. The product i saw fly by my feed was two marshmallows on a stick that were toasted golden brown and even had a golden sheen to the golden edges.
Except that..it was a bubble bar.
I looked around wildly to make sure i actually saw it fly past my instagram feed.
I looked on the Bedazzled site…it wasnt there!
I looked on my feed again, it was..on the Mad Bombers feed? I scratched my head.
I looked closely at the name on the package and it DID say Bedazzled, not Mad Bombers. So why was it on THEIR site but not hers?
So i looked all over and realized that this marshmallow bubble bar product from Bedazzle your skin was only going to be included in a Mad Bombers collaborative theme box!
I was intrigued now.
I also noticed that there was a cookie from the black magic cakery in the box.
Thats it! I HAD to have it.
So i ordered the box. It retailed for 60.00 plus shipping.
I got it in approximately one week.
I took pics of all the contents and in a group photo as well.
Yo Mad Bombers, you got me, i’m hooked.
You had me at themed collab, and Sarahs marshmallows of carnage and a cookie sealed the deal.
The bath bomb lasted a long time, it smelled nice, and turned my bath a lovely bright orange peach color.
I smell like a giant marshmallow and my skin is so soft.
One thing to note, the soap isnt marshmallow scented. It has a WONderfully clean, green/aquatic scent! I like the soap ALOT in its own right.
Now i’m just waiting to see their next box. I just missed the Shark Week theme box though i eas able to get the ‘Dont get in the Water’ bomb and their Snow Cone bomb
How to use the summer camp spray in this box: spray on, let the alcohol dry down, now sniff the yummy UNfake marshmallow scent.
Come at me Jason!
I *might* let you have a marshmallow and a bite of my cookie.
