Little Pot of Energy

This is a solid/naked packageless body lotion exclusive to the LushLabs at lush.co.uk

While i did not like the previous naked body lotion ‘Once Upon a Time’ that lush made for Christmas 2017, this one, Little Pot of Energy, is different.

Its not oily nor greasy. Its a drier consistency than ive seen before. Almost how a dry deo goes on. Theres no tacky feeling when you apply it.

I like the smell. Its made with oranges and grapefruit, as i explain in my demo and review video below.

the bottom line is that this works for me. it moisturizes my skin without feeling oily, and it snells great.

i would actually use this everyday, and i might even buy another one.

Lush: Move mountains. Fight lethargy. Deliver a dose of vitalising citrus straight to the skin. It’s a bolt of lightening to the brain: a sweep of orange puree that’s electric sharp to sniff but smooth as butter on your body thanks to a base of Fair Trade Colombian cocoa butter. Supercharge your skin with a sweep of brightening orange and grapefruit pulp and reboot your mind with a perfume flavour so fresh you can nearly taste it. Motivation’s never been this mouthwatering.

Not Sleepy shower bomb

I give this a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is one of the #LushLabs exclusive, limited edition shower bombs. Not to be confused with the Lush Labs new ‘Atmospheres’ shower gels

This is not to be confused with a Lush shower emotibomb, which is placed on the shower floor.

No, these shower bombs are for washing with.

I do a wet demo of it here in the 56 second video sink demo below.

Lush Labs at lush.co.uk has made four difderent kinds/scents of these new shower bombs; sleepy, not sleepy, karma, and kowataskaati.

This one, not sleepy, is for waking up. Its got lemon, lime and orange oils in it which are said to promote alertness and mental clarity.

After asking what the scent wax i was told that Its a new scent that Mark Constantine made for this shower bomb.

The product is not cocoa butter based. It feels like a bath bomb. Maybe a firmer kind of bath bomb.

This will definitely last more than one shower.

The scent isn’t weak but its not very strong eithet.

The foam feels very nice. If you have sensitive skin just get some foam on your hands first, then apply to your body.

It rinsrs off very easily.

Then just towel yourself dry and thats it.

Its not gimmick-y, this seems to actually work with just adding water.

And its totally packageless.

Under the Umbrella Tree

I would rate this bath bomb a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a cute bath bomb.   I love the tree shape of it.

This was made with the Lush “Breath of God’ fragrance.

The fragrance is a combination of two Lush scents “Inhale’ and ‘Exhale’.

There are masculine notes such as cedar wood, sandalwood,, and feminine notes such as rose. Together they form the classic Breath of God fragrance, which Lush has sold since 2008. Men would like it but women would like it too It’s both earthy and airy in the same fragrance.

Lush has made a bath bomb In the past called “Inhale Exhale‘ with a similar fragrance.

The bath bomb is a fast fizzes and makes a beautiful, not often seen, lime green water.  So uplifting and hopeful, like Spring.

 

Bearded Lady

4 out of 5 rating

Fruity and woody.

Made with the same ingredients as Lush ‘King of Skin’ body conditioner.

It has banana in it for moisturizing properties. It also has oat milk. It doesnt necessarily smell like banana though. It has sandalwood for starters, which i love, but it makes the scent of this slightly woody and nice.

I love king of skin bar so its no wonder i like the scent of this.

Its cute for Christmas.

Originally it was released in 2005/2006 and i bought one then via lush uk.

And then in 2017 the Lush Kitchen re-made it for us to buy, which is where i got this one.

ngredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Potassium bitartrate), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Titanium Dioxide, Oat Milk (Avena sativa), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Organic Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Almond Oil (Prunus dulcis), Fresh Organic Bananas (Musa paradisica), Fresh Organic Avocado (Persea gratissima), Sandalwood Oil (Santalum austro-caledonicum vieill and Fusanus spicatus), Tangerine Oil (Citrus reticulata), Rosewood Oil (Aniba rosaeodora), Lavender Oil (Lavandula angustifolia), Cocamide DEA, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Colour 14700, Dairy Free Chocolate Drops

I used one in a bath cocktail wuth other Lush things in my photo below.

Lush Times: Our Lady has moisturising oat milk to keep skin soft when it’s dry in autumn and winter; there are fresh avocados and bananas, and jojoba and almond oils to soften you up when you have your winter baths. 

Lemon bubble brush

3 out of 5 rating

Lemon bubble brush is one of three new re-usable style bubble bars from Lush. While i dont normally like the reusables as much as Lush regular squishy bubble bars, these new bubble brushes are fun to use!

This is the yellow bubble brush new for 2018. Unlike its blue and pink counterparts this one smells lemony. It has the same scent as Lush ‘Lemslip’ buttercream. Its made with lime, and sweet orange oil.

It’s not very sweet. In fact i wish it were more sweet. And honestly, i wish it smelled stronger.

It leaves a bright, sunny yellow hue to the bath water.

I like to blend it with the blue bubble brush sometimes.

I like the mint and candy bubble brushes more than this yellow lemon one because the scents and colors are nicer to me. Just a personal preference.

I liked using it but i wouldn’t necessarily buy another one. Whereas i would buy anothrr blue one.

Candy bubble brush

4 out of 5 rating.

while the re-usable bubble bars are not my favorite…these new bubble brushes are fun. The re-usable consistency lends itself very well to these ‘brushes’ shape.

The Candy bubble brush is my second favorite bubble brush.

Candy bubble brush is made with the Lush ‘Candy Fluff’ scent. synthetic musk is used in this because in order to use real musk the animal is killed.

i like this one because the scent is sweet and nice like some kind of pink candy.

Heres a video i made where i demo all of the bubble brushes including the Pink Candy bubble brush

I can use it by itself to make a pink color or i sometimes like to mix colors as below

Can’t decide which one to go for? As the saying goes – different strokes for different folks, which is why there’s a palette of three colours to Picasso from (but it wouldn’t Erté to try them all). Candy Bubble Brush creates a vibrant pink with a sweet candy fluff scent that will have you coming back for more.

Pink Petigrain

2 out of 5 rating

This is the most bitter thing I’ve ever smelled in a long time.

I wanted to like this because its so pretty.

Pink petigrain is supposed to share its scent with the Lush madame president bath bomb. Grapefruit and petigrain.

What in the actual…?

I said to myself ‘There is NO WAY my petigrain flower smells like madame president bath bomb’.

Firstly, i LOVE the scent of Madame President.

I bought six of them.

Secondly, i HATE the scent of this Pink Petigrain blossom.

When i got it out of my package my eyes lit up because of the pretty coral color and the flower shape.

But i recoiled back when my nose smelled it.

How do we explain that?

Maybe because some things melted in my order the scents combined strangely? Dunno.

I was so adament i said i dont even care if Mark or Jack C themselves tell me it is.

I have both Madame President bomb & Pink Petitgrain blossom bubnle bar side by side. NO.

I don’t know if i got a bad one or what but no. Mmmkay. Just *NO*.

Did my nose just all of a sudden after 17 years just say ‘April, i’m done.’? I’m not sure, but suffice it to say i dont like the bitter, unpleasant smell of this bubble bar, and i won’t be buying another one. I had to use something else with it because i couldnt stand the smell. How odd. I havent had a reaction to a lush product in quite sometime. But i guess i cant like them all. *Shrug*

Your mileage may vary.

Description

For a couple of hours, lay back and indulge in pink waters covered in soft, fluffy bubbles. Calming petitgrain oil works its wonders on worries and cares, the woody scent evoking images of summer walks through citrus groves. Meanwhile, refreshing grapefruit oil lifts moods high above the clouds of the day, bringing with it memories of breakfasts taken on warm, sunlit verandas. Hold this flower under running water and let it spin and build bubbles before breathing deeply and allowing yourself to be transported away on a cheerful, summer breeze.
