Guardian of the Forest shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

I am very excited that Lush included Guardian of the Forest in their newest ‘we’re making shower gels of your favorite bath bombs just because’.

As i state in my video i think of GOTF as a new classic Lush green scent. Its both deep green but also bright with cypress.

Its a translucent gel. I was somewhat disppointed that it doesnt have glitter since the bath bomb has emerald green glitter but its not a huge deal because im just glad to have a nice green smelling shower gel to enjoy!

It smells like I’m in a forest or a fairy glade only not quite as woody as the bath bomb.

Rosewood, oakmoss, cypress, and lime.

The gel is nice and thick and it lathers up nicely on my skin.

Its such a soothing, grounding scent.

The forest is alive. Can you hear the trees whispering the secrets of the earth to you? They beckon you onward. Feel the carpet of cool, thick moss beneath your bare feet as citrus sunlight breaks through the trees ahead, gilding the world in dappled gold and green. Follow the footsteps of a mysterious creature and emerge into a clearing, a trickling waterfall in a glade of rosewood and cypress – the heart of the forest. Let the ethereal tranquility surround you as you step beneath the water, earthy oakmoss and cleansing lime washing away any trace of the world beyond. It’s just you and the trees.

List of ingredients

World Piece

Lush times 2003 Description: Perhaps most of us wonder if there’s anything we can do to help bring about world peace. If we’re not world leaders or diplomats or international peace keepers then a good way to start would be to be pleasant to everyone we meet, well behaved on the roads, polite and considerate to our friends and families and kind to complete strangers. Scale it up a bit and we’re there! ‘What’s that got to do with a Bath Ballistic?’ you may ask. It’s like this. The World Piece is made with pine oil from Russia for courage and constancy and peppermint, symbol of friendship and love, from the USA. We have sweetie oil, from an Israeli grapefruit bred to remove sourness, mixed with a secret perfume from the edges of the Arabian Sahara Kenyan cypress oil is said to soothe anger and calm down irritable people who won’t stop talking and start listening. Use them yourselves and send them to people who have a direct influence on ending conflicts. (Just be careful not to label the package ‘Bath Product’ not ‘ballistic’ or ‘bomb’ because that wouldn’t help.

Here’s a demo and review video i made of this bath bomb in the bath

Melomint

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Tartaric acid, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Peppermint oil, Cocamide DEA, Flax seed oil, Cypress Oil, Perfume, Gardenia Extract, Chlorophyll, Color.

My review is from 2006, and i feel the same way about it in 2016.

Okay. I’m so amazed with Melomint bubble bar. And I’m amazed at “Summer” on the uk forum for ever having the patience with us to again and again try to get our collective together to vote for it and (thank heavens) finally having it win this time. It looks like a watermelon…in technicolor. It turns the water a beautiful light red/dark coral color. (I’m taking a pic of the water next bath). It smells like spearmint (not sweet mouthwash-y peppermint). It’s refreshing as all get out when the temperature rises in Summer. And what is up with the little watermelon seeds? Cute! I think it’s darn near perfect, bravo Lush.

It is strong enough of a mint to stand alone, and the water color is so unique for a Lush product that I wouldn’t want to change it. 😀 If you like Lush’s “Ice Hotel” bubble bar you’ll love this I think. It’s the same minty freshness just without the lavender. And the cypress really works here. It helps sort of ground it without even being noticeable. Wow.

LT description: If you like spearmint chewing gum you’ll likely have a weakness for this bubble bar. The mint, cypress and chlorophyll provides relief to tired and aching bodies at the end of a hard day, and with the look and shape of a slice of watermelon, this bubble bar is a beauty.

Tropical Jungle

This is a woody, green forest-y, floral .

This shower gel is loaded with Jasmine. It has honey in it as well but it is no where near the scent of B Never or other lush honey favorites. It is a strong floral scent. The scent stays on your skin 24 hours later. I find it to be a little too intense smelling but it’s nice to have a good jasmine scent now and again. The ballistic version of this scent is called “Youki Hi“. Also Lush made “Floating Flower’ bath bomb for Valentine’s 2014 in this same scent, and lush “Godiva” solid hair shampoo also has this scent.

LT 2006 Description: Lascivious, licentious, vivacious and insatiable, this is the Sex-Appeal Honey Shower with masses of Jasmine. Contains the finest aphrodisiac essential oils, plus the best three oils for controlling PMS. Use generously all over your body and even wash your hair with it if you dare! To make you smell sexy whether you are going out for the night or just having a night in with a friend.

Here is a picture of a Lush exclusive 2018 Summit bath bomb with the same scent. It’s called ‘Fox’.
