Fireball

4 out of 5 rating. See my 2 minute tub demo below.

This is a beautifully designed bath bomb with vibrant yellow, orange and red colors. Looks just like a fireball! Its also got a bit of gold glitter on the red part.

This bomb was made with orange oil, ginger, and mustard powder so its nice and warming on a cool winter’s night.

It was madecin the popular Lush ‘Cinders’ scent

Its both a fast, noisy fizzer And a slow, quiet melty fizzer. Plus its got popping cansy for that ‘crackling cinders in a fireplace’ sound.

The scent is nice, medium strong. If the scent were stronger i woukd give this a 5 out of 5 rating.

The end result is a bright orange water with just a very small bit of gold glitter in the water. Its not what i would call glittery water.

This is a picture of the original in 2005.

Great silvery blue shimmer to this shower gel.

This is a shower gel version of the popular in-stores solid bubble bar called “Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds’. It has the same exact ingredients of the blue skies bubble bar and the blue skies liquid bubble bath.  Cinnamon, Patchouli and Frankincese.  Earthy, spicy and incensey.

This is what the 2016 ones from the Lush.co.uk/kitchen look like.

Lush.a.Lot’s Review: Great lustre to this shower gel. The Blue Skies and Fluffy White clouds scent smells so good as a shower gel. I swear I smell more cinnamon than in the bath foam.

Review: This smells just like the past Christmas soap called “Reddy for Christmas” It’s smells like a combination of red hots (from the cinnamon) and Angel’s Delight(because of something fruity). It’s scent lasts a medium amount of time and it’s also a medium strong soap scent. Love it.

Hot Java

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cinnamon Sticks (Cinnamomum cassia), Perfume, Ginger Oil (Zingiber officinale), Cinnamon Powder (Cinnamomum cassia), Ginger Powder (Zingiber officinale), Coriander Oil (Coriandrum sativum), Ginger Absolute (Zingiber officinale), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Juniperberry Oil (Juniperus communis), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), D&C Red No. 33

This is/was Lush’s spicy ballistic and it smells like clove, cinnamon, and ginger. It’s a good staple ballistic for the cold weather months for most every Lushie I’ve ever read.  To me It needed some depth. It was very acidic, and astringent, like tea is.  It’s more bitter then i would’ve imagined. I just wish it could’ve been sweeter, just a teeny weeny bit.  There is cinnamon bark in the ballistic which drift around in the water but Hot Java isn’t spicy enough in my opinion to be on it’s own. It’s nothing like Lush’s “Marathon” bubble bar, which was really spicy. After I used my five up, I never bought one again.
Hot Java was DCd in 2007. It was in regular production for about 1 1/2 years.

LushHotJava

Lush Times 2006 description: Jump into a Hot Java bath every time you need warming up. It’s for cold days . so that’s most of them . or days when you’ve got a cold or when you.ve been out in the cold and need warming up right through. It’s good for when you’re feeling creaky after exercising too. Run a warm bath, drop in the Hot Java and let the spices soak right in. There’s warming ginger oil, warming ginger powder and some warming ginger absolute too. Very warm! Powdered cinnamon is traditionally used to relieve aches, ylang ylang relaxes your muscles and juniper berry oil is said to help relieve stiff joints. A week in the tropics would be lovely but a Hot Java will do nicely.

Marathon

As I crumbled the soft deep orange bar with a paper flag of differing countries embedded in it, I smelled a wonderfully spicy blend of what smelled to me like oranges, peppermint or eucalyptus, and some eastern Indian spices. When I got in the water, this is a bar that I could feel working on my sore muscles in seconds. The smell and the feeling of the bars ingredients reminded me of the now discontinued Lush ballistic “Fizzy O’Therapy”, which had mustard seed oil in it. But Marathon is better. During this bath I wondered if this Marathon bar had mustard oil as well and apparently so. This bar makes a very noticeable difference with regard to sore muscles and being achey. If you’ve just run a Marathon or done any work that makes your muscles achey and sore, Marathon is a great one to have around. It reminds me of the feeling of that old nasty aching muscles rub called “Deep Heat”, not the smell but the way it made your muscles heat up in a very noticeable way? Yep. Marathon smells like…Fizzy O’Therapy ballistic. I can still feel it’s effects and it’s been an hour since I got out of the tub. It’s heating properties keep going even after the bath. Because of attractiveness, bath water color, and mostly the way it works, this bubble bar gets 4 stars from me.

Notes: “Marathon” and “Wiccy Magic Muscles” cinnamon and mint massage bar are a team for sore muscles.
