Love Locket Amazeball 2020

5 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute tub demo video belo

This year Lush brought back the popular Valentine love locket bath bomb. However this year both the design and the scent are different.

This year lush designed the love locket in the new ‘Amazeball’ design, which is a hollowed out design filled with a bath bomb top, and miniature, multi colored bath bombs inside the hollowed out area.

Also, this year Lush made it in the popular ‘Yummy Mummy’ shower gel scent. Its a caremelly strawberry scent made with strawberry, orange oil, and tonka bean.

My favorite Lush exclusive ‘Roller’ bath bomb is in this scent too.

The Love Locket is a bit larger than regular lush bath bombs.

Primarily pink with blue accents, the tiny heart-shaped bath bombs inside are blue, yellow, green and pink.

The end result is a mauve colored, sparkly water that smells like strawberry.

“Don’t lock your love away, release it in a spectacle of strawberry-scented swirls. This amazeball is the key to a great bath, so unlock your heart’s true potential with a good soak in the tub. Full to the brim with tiny bath bomb hearts, you’re sure to be all a flutter thanks to uplifting orange and cosy tonka.

You’ll love this if you like:
– Super soaks, bright colours and a heart full of giddy joy.
 Strawberries and Cream bath bomb or  D’Fluff shaving soap.
– Treating yourself or the ones you care for to a big, blissful bath.

Benefits:
– Tonka absolute has a comforting sweet fragrance, adding a snuggly embrace of warmth to this strawberry-scented treat.
– The uplifting note of Brazilian orange oil adds a drop of sunshine to your bath, as well as boosting your mood.
– The addition of cornflour ensures that this bath bomb is extra softening for the skin.

How to use: Bust the lock off this amazeball by removing the stopper and shake as many of the little bath bombs into the tub as your heart desires, allowing them to tumble in and fizz away. Feel free to indulge with the whole thing at once, or keep the shell for another time. Why not put a love note inside for that special someone to find as they soak?”

Shijimi Butterfly

5 out of 5 rating. See my 2 minute recorded bath demo of it below.

This beautiful bath bomb is one of five butterflies that Lush has made for the grand opening of tge Lush Liverpool Biggest store in the world, and for the opening of the New Lush concept store in Harajuku Japan.

Shijimi is to promote sleep and relaxation, being made with lavender and chamomile.

It smells like the Lush ‘Ickle Baby Bot’ bomb.

Shijimi has layered blue and black colors and light glitter here and there in just the black part.

This is a slow, foamy type of fizzer.

While its not my favorite of the five butterfly bombs it is the best one for sleepy time.

I would suggest this bomb, especially if you like lavender.

here is a 2 minute tub demo of Shijimi Butterfly in my tub.

Rose Butterfly

5 out of 5 rating

Formerly this was only available during Mother’s Day but in early 2020 Lush made this a regular item.

Has a rose floral scent. I describe the scent more in my tub Demo video below.

Loving the pink and blue bath art.

Its a slow fizzer and lets out a beautiful silvery blue shimmer into the water.

Butterflies love flowers and so will you when this luxurious pink and blue bath bomb fizzes through the water, leaving swirls of shimmer in its wake and a fragrant floral perfume on your skin.

You’ll love this if you like:
– Soothing soaks in refreshing lemon and calming rose.
 Pearl massage bar or Rose Jam bubbleroon.
– To lay back and dream of fields of Turkish roses.

How to use: Draw a bath, jump in and drop this relaxing treat in for a soft soothing soak.

How to store: Store in a dry, cool place until you’re ready to jump into violet-coloured waters.

The ultimate color left when the bath bomb is dissolved is a gorgeous, sapphire blue color.

Benefits:
– Rose oil from Turkey soothes your skin and restores radiance.
– Sicilian lemon oil gives a mood-boosting hit of zest.

Glittery

I would definitely get more than one.

Shijimi

Made with Lavender and Chamomile.

Smelling similar to Lush products ‘Peace’ massage bar, or a bit like Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb.

I’ll post more as i get more info on the scent.

Collabing with @DahliaHayashi who has my photos of the six Lush Japan bombs that i received at the Lush 2018 Creative Showcase, on her blog. And now im using her photos of all the remaining Lush Japan new store bath bombs on my blog. 😊

Cheery Christmas

5 out of 5 rating
See my 2 minute tub demo video below

£3.95 (uk and converted to $5.15)

This is a pretty, new snowflake shape for Christmas. A bright pink color and it has some blue inside as well. Its not a large bomb, its more on the medium/small size.

The scents is a new one, as Lush states its made with lemon, buchu and currant.

It smells brightly, fruity to me, but not in a citrus way, more in a berryish way. I thought this smelled somewhat familiar but couldn’t put my finger on it. But after asking lush i was told its a brand new scent.

I used Cheery Christmas bath bomb in my bath along with the Lush blackberry and currant Scrub scrub scrub. I figured since yhey both have berries in them they would go nicely.

I like the blue and pink combination of the bath bomb colors in the tub.

The end result is a different shade of purple, almost a mauve color, with silver sparkle.

Gorgeous!

I bought two more Cheery Christmas bath bombs when i placed my secondLush Christmas order.

Lush description: Outside, snowflakes fall to the ground, creating a picturesque postcard landscape, untouched and unspoilt. Against the back drop of a winter dream, Sicilian lemon oil refreshes and rejuvenates putting a smile on the face of all who bathe here. Pop this bundle of joy in the bath and allow the intricate pattern to take shape before your eyes. Lay back, feel relaxed and enjoy the festive season as blackcurrant-scented buchu oil spreads the cheer.

After all, ’tis the season to be jolly.

Heres my 2 minute Tub Demo Video

Heres a pic i took of a bath i took with two bath bombs, one of them being cheery christmas bomb.

Mint bubble brush

Mint bubble brush is one of three new ‘bubble brush’ design type of re-usable bubble bars from Lush Cosmetics.

Lush has come out with five new re-usable bubble bars, three of them being in the bubble brush type. Mint is the blue one. Its got a minty scent that isnt too sweet. In fact i i wish it were a *bit* more sweet. Its the scent of their ‘Freeze’ shower gel.

Its not quite like Christingle body conditioner. Mint bubble brush isnt that sweet. Its the scent of their ‘Freeze’ shower gel.

I love the deep blue hue one can attain with this bubble bar. Its tun to drip blotches of blue on the bubbles. And it’s fun to paint the bubbles as i show in the video.

I enjoy combining colors, as those of you who have seen my bath cocktails know. I often like to create gradients or ombre effects with different bath products.

Well these new Lush bubble bars lend themselves well to this kind of blending, as ive tried to show below.

I think these new bubble brush bars are quite fun. I like that the three primary colors are represented. I would give these bubble brush bars a 4 out of 5. While i don’t particularly like the re-usable bubble bars as much as the regular lush bubble bars, these are fun because you can use them in different ways. I would buy another one of each color. But it’s not one i would stock up on.

Rocket Science

See my demo video below. This has a bright, lemon citrus fragrance. 

What a gorgeous bath bomb. The interesting thing is that this bomb makes various dimensions of things happening. If one were to look at the water one could see layers; multi colored stars on the very bottom. 


Then there is a multi-colored chunky glitter layer above the stars.

Then there’s a layer of silvery sparkes  above that.

Then there is the blue, pink and purple colored foam layer from the fizzing bomb. 

Gorgeous. 

Here’s the 3 minute demo 

The smells is nice, but nothing earth shattering. But the looks of this bomb in the water makes up for it.

I give this a 4.5 out of 5 rating. 

Spacegirl

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Grapefruit Oil, Bergamot Oil , Almond Oil, Propylene Glycol, Colour 15510, Mulit-Coloured Glitter (Polyethylene terephthalate), Fizzy Candy.

Lush Times: Here comes a ballistic of astronomical proportions. We were inspired by The Imagined Village’s intriguing interpretation from their second album, Empire & Love. It’s shaped like Saturn with added space dust for our alien friends, and the refreshing scent of blackcurrant sweeties will make you hungry for your own space adventures. Space Girl is stellar, just remember your blaster and your freezer gun.

 The Space Girl bath bomb smells so fruity and slightly sweet.

Lush made three other products later in the same scent: the Gith Fairy Massage bar, The Dinosaur Egg bath bomb, and the 2020 Star bubble bar.

As it fizzes it makes a red and purple water, and it has a pretty light blue glitter in the water.

it also leaves a red comet effect on the bottom of the tub which is awesome.

Frozen

OMG what a gorgeous bath bomb!  See my short video clip of it below. This shares it's beautiful scent with Lush "Happy Happy Joy Joy" and a couple of other lush products.

Review: The fragrance of this bath bomb surprised me.  I thought because it was called “Frozen” it might be minty.  Instead this is a Gorgeous floral with citrus notes.  It has the lscent as Lush “Happy Happy Joy Joy” shampoo, “shine so bright”.  It has silver shimmer in the water which does leave an ever so light sheen on the skin after the bath. The water is an incredible bright sky blue color.

Lush description:  Let it go – This magical blend of uplifting grapefruit, tunisian neroli, rose oil.

See my video of this gorgeous bath bomb below.

 

 

Christmas Penguin

I will always have fond memories of him because of actually getting to meet the person at Lush Headquarters who had the idea for making a Christmas Penguin in the first place!  See her talk about Christmas Penguin during my factory tour at the short video below..

I loved this cute little guy.  It has the scent of their “Olive Branch” shower gel.  Lush made a few different products in this scent, ‘Pop in the Bath’ bubble bar is one of them. 🙂

Ingredients: Sodium Carbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Cornflour, Perfume, Bergamot Oil, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Orange Flower Absolute, Sicilian Mandarin Oil.

Lush 2014 Description: P-P-P Pop in a Penguin! This fun bubble bar is modelled on Little Penguins found on Philip Island, Australia – they’re the smallest penguins in the world! Fans of The Olive Branch shower gel will love this exotic product. Its orange flower absolute and Sicilian mandarin oil will refresh and uplift, while cornflour will soften the water. Crumble under running water to create bubbly glaciers and release the bubble crumble to drift over the foam.


Intergalactic

See the 3 minute video (below) i made of this stupefying color of water.


Lush description:  Blast off into Funky-This awesome mix will have you hooked on a feeling.  Be the guardian of a galaxy as it explodes in your bath.

5 out of 5 rating.  This is minty smelling, and the dark blue color of the water, and the sparkliness of the water makes my bath look like a galaxy.  A bath bomb can’t get any better than this.

 

This has popping candy, peppermint oil, grapefruit oil, cedarwood oil, and vetivers oil.

Here’s a pic i took of Intergalactic in the tub.
 

Here’s a link to a video i made of the Intergalactic in the water, GORGEOUS shimmer at the very end 🙂

Big Bang

Here’s a link to a youtube video I made of the “Big Bang” bubble bar in the tub.  I like the bright, sweet citrus smell, and the colors of the blue bar itself, and the pink bath melt part in the middle…It’s irresistable to anyone, and everyone.

Lush description:  It started with a bang – Start baths off with a lemon myrtle bang. Lie back and think of the universe.

I took pictures of two different bars. The pink melty part melted on the one in the photos below, but it looks kind of cool.

Ingredients:  Avocado butter, perfume, grapefruit oil, organic lemon myrtle oil, tangerine oil, extra virgin olive oil (bath melt), rice syrup.

Error 404


Initially this was a hidden product, available for the first month the Lush Kitchen went online.  The bath bomb was free if you could find it and ad it to your check out basket.  One per order.


I had 12 error 404 bath bombs eventually. Then they stopped making the error 404 bath bombs.  Later the online Lush Kitchen made these for one day only for customers to purchase.

The scent is a beautiful full on floral.

This video i made of Error 404 explains more and also shows you the ridiculous mermaid water this bath bomb creates in the tub, blue and gold…

 

 

Here’s a video i made of the Error404 in the bath

Don’t Rain On My Parade

See my video of it below.  One of the new lush shower gels  which have come here to North America.  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 Don’t Rain on My Parade below shower gel is a teal, blue colour. Scented with blueberry juice, vanilla, cassie, voilet leaf, ylang ylang and sandalwood.

similar to Ultraviolet but sweeter like their “Tuca Tuca” massage bar, and ‘Violet Nights’ bath oil.

Here’s a video i made of it where i discuss the scent of Don’t Rain on my Parade and the other two shower gels in more detail 🙂

250g (8oz) £9.50 (17.50)

Here’s a “family reunion portrait” of all the Lush products throughout the years which have this same scent.

 

 

Magic

Magic1-vi

Lush Times Xmas 2008: A double magic spell for vitality and prosperity. If we told you that there was a surprise inside, it wouldn’t be a surprise anymore, would it? So we won’t. This is a bright turquoise quadrodecahedral * (*It has 14 sides) Ballistic that turns your bathwater a deep shade of sapphire blue, the colour of a mountain lake, so there must be something magical inside it. Seen from the top, Magic is a hexagon, a “hex” Ballistic, with a blend of marjoram and rose in the turquoise shell to dissolve away your anxieties. Then, as the water changed colour, basil and peppermint essential oils swirls into your magical bath, symbolishing growth, vitality and energy. When your sprig of parsley floats free, that’s to bring you prosperity. Magic is Lush’s Yuletide spell for everyone, to wish you good luck for 2009, to help you banish bad things to the past and bring you a brighter future.

Here’s a “Magic” jelly made for one day only for only forum members

I lit it up for the photo

Ingredients: 2828 Magic £3.10 Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Marjoram oil (Thymus mastichina), Rose absolute (Rosa damascena), Basil oil (Ocimum basilicum), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), *Eugenol, *Geraniol, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Citronellol, *Linalool, Colour 42045, Colour 18050, Fresh Parsley Sprig (Carum petroselinum).

Here is a video i made of the Magic bath bomb in the tub.  It’s a very popular youtube video;

Christmas Eve bubble bar

 

Ingredients:  Perfume,  Irish Moss Powder, Jasmine Absolute Ylang Ylang Oil , Gardenia Extract  Iridescent Glitter 

Lush Times: The design was created by our Newcastle shop manager who wanted a bubble bar to perk her up in preparation for her night down the “toon”. She put a lovely yellow crescent moon on top of a blue sky because in Newcastle when the moon is shining, it’s time to go out! For most people though, the moon means sleepy time. Simon Constantine created a beautifully feminine jasmine and ylang ylang perfume, which is fantastic for calming and relaxing you and inspiring confidønce. On Christmas Eve children find it difficult to sleep while Father Christmas could be flying around in his sleigh delivering presents and they don’t want to miss him. Use one to send them to sleep.

 

Lush made a Christmas 2014 bath bomb called “Northern Lights”.  It has the scent of this Christmas Eve bubble bar. The both together are gorgeous.

Big Blue

Ingredients: 200g (6.3 oz) $4.75

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Atlantic Sea Salt Crystals (Sodium chloride), Perfume, Arame Seaweed (Eisenia arborea), Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum), Lavender Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Seaweed Absolute (Fucus vesiculosus), FD&C Blue No. 1, FD&C Yellow No. 5.

Review: If I had to use one word to describe this, I’d say “refreshing”. It’s just like the ocean and has a stupifying deep blue color. Big Blue has a strong scent and has been known to make a couple of people headachey but it is totally invigorating and “spa-like” to me. And relaxing too. Big Blue ballistic has been a popular Lush item for years and years for a reason. The only down side is the small seaweed pieces to cleanup but if you really don’t like them you can put the ballistic in a nylon stocking or a giant teaball that you sometimes find in kitchen stores. I like the seaweed because it really is skin softening (so is the sea salt in Big Blue) and I have dry skin so my skin feels really good after a bath with Big Blue.

Notes: “Bubbling Under” was the bubble bar that Lush made to go with Big Blue. Lush’s “Enchanted Island” bath melt also has this same ocean/sea/lavender/lemon scent.

Lush Times 2006 description: Be aware that the Big Blue gives you the full Pacific Ocean experience, complete with strands of mineral rich seaweed (but stopping short of the actual fish). This bright blue Ballistic, topped with a crust of stimulating sea salt gives you a deep turquoise blue bath scented with balancing lavender and stimulating lemon oil to refresh your mind and body almost as much as a holiday by the warm ocean. Bear in mind that the Big Blue is a lot cheaper, there’s no jet lag and you don’t have to eat aeroplane food.

 

Here’s a video i made of Big Blue in the tub
