Inhale Exhale

See my demo video (below) of this in the tub ūüôā

Description: Inhale is a light and fruity fragrance with with neroli, rose, vetivert and ylang ylang, Exhale has a more intense woody and smoky aroma with sandalwood, cedarwood, amber, and a hint of grapefruit.  Drop your bath bomb into the warm water to enjoy the effect of one, then the other, and finally both fragrances together as they waft through the steam to create the exquisite, perfectly balanced Breath of God.

This is truly one of my favorite bath bombs.

VEGAN? YES

Ingredients: citric acid, Neroli oil, Ylang Ylang oil, Black pepper oil, Sandalwood oil, Vetivert, Cedarwood oil, Lemon oil, Grapefruit oil, Cade oil, Cream of tartar, Cornflour, sodium laureth sulfate, lauryl betaine, Coumarin, hydroxyxitronellal, methyl Ionene, *limonene, *linalool, Perfume, colour 17200, colour 42090, colour 45410, colour 16255, Paper Slip.

Lush Times: This is a bath bomb of two halves; created with the two halves of our Breath of God fragrance, Inhale and Exhale. Each half will fizz at different speeds. The Inhale half fizzes quickly, allowing you to breathe in the neroli and rose  oils, breathe in and relax. You can then lie back and enjoy the grounding effect of Exhale, which fizzes more slowly to allow the opportunity for a long-lasting, indulgent bath.

Here’s a demo video i made of this bath bomb in the tub

Spank Me With Saplings

The Lush Kitchen at lush.co.uk  will be making these during the week of April 4-8 2016

I’ll have a video soon here¬†¬†http://www.youtube.com/user/MSlushalot

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerine, Sea Water (Aqua), Bay Leaf (Laurus nobilis) and Olive Leaf (Olea europaea) Infusion, Grape Juice (Vitis vinifera), Propylene Glycol, Fresh Cucumber Juice (Cucumis sativus), Carrageenan Extract, Perfume, Olive Oil (Olea europaea), Cinnamon Leaf Oil (Cinnamomum cassia), Neroli Oil (Citrus amara), Oakmoss Absolute (Evernia prunastri), Black Pepper Oil (Piper nigrum), Chlorophyllin, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), *Cinnamal, *Citral, *Eugenol, *Geraniol, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Citronellol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Methylparaben. * Occurs naturally in essential oils

This is a somewhat unappetizing looking dark green jelly. Initially it was hard for me to pin down what it smelled like. I think that’s a good thing, means it’s not a simple fragrance. It’s a bright, sharp lemon/citrus smell with lots of astringent herbiness. I love the subtle whiff of black pepper. The herbiness is almost minty but not quite. It’s also a bit sweet smelling but just a bit. To me this is THE Lush product that would be an “Eye Opener” product for morning showers or times when we’re feeling sluggish. It smells as if Gavarnie, Slammer, Narcotick and Party On mated and had offspring.

Here’s a demo & review video i made of Spank me with Saplings video

Lush 2005 description: There’s a Nordic sauna theme to Spank Me With Saplings. Up there in the far north of Finland, where snow covers all the joins, you need to get nice and warm after venturing outside, which is probably why the Fins invented the sauna. In a pine hut in the woods, grown men cleanse their bodies by getting very hot, running outside and rolling in the snow and slapping themselves with birch twigs. Fortunately, we have a cleansing, detoxifying Shower Jelly instead. Take a hot shower, slap the refreshingly ice cold jelly (straight from the freezer) all over your body, inhale the woody oakmoss, bay and olive leaf scent and let the neroli and black pepper oils detoxify and cheer you. A Spank in the morning wakes you up and puts a smile on your face.

Lord of Misrule shower cream

5 out of 5 rating

See my up close (to show the glitter) sink demo video of it below

One of the new lush shower gels ¬†whcih have come here to North America today September 18, 2015. ¬†These 3 ¬†shower gels including Lord of Misrule, Don’t Rain on my Parade, and Beautiful, ¬†debuted at lush new “Superstore” on Oxford Street in London.

This is the new Lush Lord of Misrule shower cream that debuted at their new “Superstore’ on Oxford Street in London.

This shower cream is a more moisturizing, creamy shower gel, in the popular Lord of Misrule fragrance.  Black pepper, vanilla and patchouli.  This is a nice way of having the LOM scent.  There are also two more Oxford street new products having this same scent (see Aliens and Monsters fun bar), LOM find the gap bar,  and Rough With the Smooth bar, as well as the Lord of Misrule bath bomb, and the LOM perfume.   Just for fun I made a photo of all these together (below).

It’s called a shower cream instead of a shower gel because it has extra moisturizing properties such as wheatgerm oil, etc.

I love this. ¬†I’ve even washed my hair with this. ¬†Because the scent stays a good long time on my skin or hair.

Granny Takes a Dip bubble bar

April 2015 – My Video of this below

Debuting at their Oxford Street store in London, and then coming to UK and US stores a month later, this comes at a time when lush were discontinuing their bath bomb of the same name.

I like the bath bomb more than the bubble bar. ¬†There was a whole show involved with the bath bomb. ¬†An unfurling of psychedelic beauty. ¬†Whereas the bubble bar crumbles into the huge amount of bubbles, which is good, after all it is a bubble bar. ¬†But i like the :show” of the bath bomb a bit more. ¬†Dunno if i’ll buy this one again. ¬†The scent wasn’t as strong as i remember the bath bomb to be. ¬†It is a gorgeous looking bubble bar though.

Lush Description:  This ginger, pepper and lemon-scented bubble bar turns your water psychedelic and puts some colour in your life. Simply crumble underneath the running tap to create grounding, spicy bubbles. Its spicy, citrusy scent will pep you up: lemon oil boosts the mood, while ginger and pepper are warming.

Granny Takes a Dip bath bomb

Discontinued July 2015

Video below – I like this bath bomb. ¬†The “show” that it gives in the tub is spectacular. ¬†It makes a dizzying array of colors, growing ever psychedelic as more of it dissolves in the water. ¬†It’s a flat bath bomb, having varied colored rings within rings.

 

 

In April 2015 this was discontinued.  At the same time, Lush made a new bubble bar of the same name and scent.  I think the reason they discontinued this bath bomb,  after it only being in stores for a year or so,  is that this  was a particularly fragile bath bomb since it was designed with rings within rings, and may have broke more often in the store displays than other of the lush bath bombs.
