Lush.a.Lot’s Review: Skin Sin is similar to Lush’s discontinued “Cherie Ripe” massage bar. It’s a lighter scent then Cherie Ripe message bar or Snap the Whip or even Potion. When I first put it on, it was cherry, in a majorly yummy way. Now that it’s rubbed in and stuff it smells like light soft cherry and just a touch of that fruity currant smell.  I guess I’m just lucky with these latest round of new products because this has absolutely no acrid currant-cat pee smell on me whatsoever as some say it does. Not in the least.  Skin Sin is beautiful. It’s just a lushious black currant creamy raspberry scent. This is a nice lighter scented summer body lotion that is quickly absorbed like “Potion”, and it’s also like “Potion” in consistency. I could actually wear this to work and not be worried about it being to “Lushy” or too “Strong”.

Lush Description: Skin Sin started life as a truly beautiful cream which made our skin feel good all over. We used almond oil to sink deep down into the skin and give longer lasting benefits (not just a nice smell and a feeling which lasts half and hour like some chemical-raddled creams do). We added nourishing cocoa butter and humectant vegetable glycerine, soothing tagettes and chamomile oils. The trouble was with this gloriously effective cream, that its effective, dependable mix of essential oils made it smell all a bit too worthy. We wanted it to behave perfectly but to smell wicked. So Mark added a twist of rich, fruity cherry, which you smell more strongly as the earnest oils settle down and do their good works. It’s a bit like having Angelina Jolie join your school’s fundraising committee.

Sweetie Pie

I love the dark, fruity black currant smell of Sweetie Pie. It’s exactly the consistency of jello, as such it can be a bit hard to control or hold in the  shower. A shower pouff works wonders in this regard.  Or one can cut the jelly into small cubes,  and use one cube for each shower. I love this smell.

When Lush first sold Sweetie Pie jelly in stores, they had one giant piece of jelly, about two ft across, and lush would cut off chunks and put them in containers for people to buy. They didn’t have pre filled containers of jelly like they do nowadays.  The giant slab of Sweetie Pie jelly in the stores had larger sparkly stars and things on it, as well as the tiny sparkle mixed in the jelly like today’s Sweetie Pie jelly.

Ingredients: Cherry Infusion,  Coconut Infusion, Perfume, Carrageenan Extract, Bergamot Oil,  Cassis Absolute , Cypress Oil Iridescent Glitter.

Lush 2006 Description: The Lush internet forum inspired this jelly too; one ‘forumite’ customer posted that her favourite smell was doughnuts* and cherry muffins so Mark decided that this sounded like a wonderful scent for a jelly. Lush aficionados will recognise the fruity Cherie Ripe fragrance as its base: blackcurrants, cherries and refreshing cypress. We add this to the skin-softening seaweed jelly mix, throw in a handful of iridescent sparkles then just in case you think we’re all turning into Mary Poppins we chuck in a vat of sour cherry infusion and a hint of bitter citrus. We may be sweet, but we retain our darker side. (Note to American customers: that’s how we spell donuts in the UK. We like to make things complicated wherever possible.)
