Review: QofN was the sort of precursor to the present ‘I Should Coco” soap by Lush. The difference is that this doesn’t have the scratchy, exfoliating dessicated coconut. This is a creamy soap that smells more of Lushious coconut than I Should Coco soap in my opinion. I’m not cazy about coconut, there are times when I hate coconut. So I’m picky about coconut scented products. But this Quinquireme of Ninevah soap adds oranfe which makes it more complex and lovely. is one I do indeed like to use. Not bad, being that it’s a coconut soap. I would think the majority of people would find this to be a 4 star soap.
Lush Times description: Q of N is a creamy, smooth cocnut scented soap made in 35 kg block with two rope handles so it can be carried with dignity to its destination within Lush shops. Inspired by the poem by John Masefield, in which he describes the Quinquereme’s cargo of precious oils and spices. Some of which we used in the soap’s coconut based perfume. We’ll cut you a 100 g slice from one of these precious cargoes to bring a hint of the exotic Middle East of times gone by to your very own wash basin.
This jelly is made with coconut, pineape and vetivert. It has the same scent as Coco Loco/Big Calm.
We like our eggs sweet, foamy and vegan. Brazilian orange oil and vetivert oil make a cracking combination and will have you dreaming of being in a candy store filling a paper bag with fried egg gummy candies. Let this sudsy version wobble over your body in the shower and feel the refreshing, toning and brightening effects of fresh pineapple infusion. If ever there was a shower jelly that smelled good enough to eat, it’s this one.
Don’t leave yourself scrambling for a good shower. Lather up with this sunshine-filled jelly. It’s no yolk, this cheery little egg is packed with a cracking mix of soothing coconut infusion, enzymic pineapple and softening carrageenan extract – a recipe for truly sumptuous skin. Top it all off with a blend of uplifting orange and vetivert for a clucking good shower.
Benefits: – With a soft, tropical scent, fresh coconut infusion soothes and moisturises skin leaving it soft and supple. – Fresh pineapple infusion is bright and enzymic, great for stimulating skin and giving it a revitalised glow. – Carrageenan is a seaweed extract that gives this product it’s unique jelly texture, and is super softening for your skin.
How to use: Keep it whole, and lather onto wet skin to create a rich foam that will clean and leave you feeling fresh and bright.

Coco Loca is in the same scent family as Lush Big Calm shower jelly, Lush Big Calm body lotion, Big Calm solid perfume, Lush Yellow Submarine bath bomb, and Coco Loco solid shower oil.
Its made with orange oil, coriander, and lemon grass oil. The scent is a tropical pineapple and coconut smell.
When i first sprayed this on my arm once i did not smell anything remotely coconutty nor pineappleish. I was about to give this body spray a 2 out of 5 rating, meaning i wouldnt recommended…when i tried it again on my other arm, tbis time spraying two sprays instead of one and i waited until it wad tptally dry which was 15 minutes later. i sniffed my arm and finally! I was able to smell that tropical scent i remember so well and enjoy in the Big Calm jelly!
So tge key to this particular body spray is to wait until its totally dry before you make a decision.
That said, its not as strong of a scent as some of the other body sprays ive reviewed.
But its slightly swret and smells like a pina colada. So.i raisedy initial rating of this body spray to a 3 out of 5 rating. Meaning i would recommend it, but there are many othrt body sprays that i would choose over Coco Loco.
“Need a mini vacation? Mist on a little Coco Loco for a fresh breeze of palm trees, sandy beaches and total relaxation. Brazilian orange, coriander and lemongrass oils give lightness to the creamy coconut base of this perfume, evoking memories of your perfect tropical getaway. This spritzer is just as deliciously scented as the shower oil of the same name, so layer on the scent after the shower to make the vacation vibes last a little longer.” Lush
Review: I’d give this a 4 This jelly has such a beautiful dark and light blue color. It reminds me of the sea. The ocean is also called “the big Calm”. So beautiful the color blue…truly dreamy looking. It has the scent of a sweet tropical scent, fruity and a bubble gum-like note underneath. If Lush Coolaulin, Pineapple Grunt soap and Rockstar soap had a lovechild maybe? I like this. I don’t think I’ve ever smelled any other lush product that smells like this. It’s Lush but it’s not like anything that’s out currently. For those of you who like B Never’s Banana soap, it’s kind of like that, but this has more coconut smell and a different kind of fruitiness. This is one of those Lush products where you go ‘Do I hate this or….like this…sniff sniff…mmm…sniff sniff…Hmm….” so it may be one of those “taunting” types of Lush products. You know like some lush products, when you first smelled it you’re like “Hmm…hmm..” and you put it back and then the next day it calls you and you HAVE to smell it? Yeah, that.

Review: Prounced foo-kay, (one of my friends went scuba diving there once) this ballistic was good. Not fabulous, but nice. 🙂 It made the water a bit creamier than most lush ballistics, I think that was because of the coconut cream. The orange and coriander went well the coconut. It could’ve been just a tad stronger but it was nice. You could see the small pieces of dessicated coconut in the water. But the scent was so weak. This was DC’ed in 2005.
Lush Times 2005 description: The thought of Jack Constantine larging it in Asia provided the inspiration for this one. Phuket, Mark was heard to say, he’s off enjoying himself again.
