This shower gel has the wonderful scent of Snowcake soap and Marzibain bubble bar. Firstly I was never knocked out about Snowcake soap. It was just “Meh” to me for years. But this shower gel has changed my mind completely about the Snowcake scent. When I opened the bottle I couldn’t believe how fresh it smelled! Everythying good that I could smell about Snowcake was in this bottle of shower gel. It is nice and strong and fresh smelling. It’s not sweet.  It smells lightly of rose and almond.  A clean, comforting scent. It’s got that marzipan scent, with a bit of rose and a bit of almond. I’m a Snowcake believer. I give this 5 stars.

World Piece


Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Pine Oil (Pinus), Sweetie Oil (Citrus grandis), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Cypress Oil (Cupressus sempervirens), Perfume, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 42045.


Minty mint! Sweet mint. Very refreshing on a hot day. And the water turns a gorgeous deep turquoise blue.

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

Cloak of Invisibility

2.5 out of 5 rating

Only because i do not like the scent. However, it is quite beautiful, which is why this isn’t a 1 out of 5 rating. .

See my demo video of this in the tub, close up doing it’s thing.  It’s lovely movements, twirling gold and red, just like the spinning cloak.

If you just feel like disappearing for a little while, slip into the bath with this seductively relaxing bath oil and cloak yourself in floral jasmine absolute and mood-brightening ylang ylang oil. Before the doorbell rings, the dog barks or the children shout, pulling you out of your calm oasis and back into reality, enjoy nourishing Majorcan almond oil hydration… Who said that!

If you don’t like the 2014 Lush Valentine’s ‘Floating Flower’ bath bomb, you won’t like this one, because they both share their scent. It’s the “Flying Fox’ scent family that this belongs to.  I really don’t like the Jasmine scented ‘Flying Fox’.  Because i don’t like a lot of jasmine.  But loads of people like this one. It’s very pretty.

Wash You Were Here

Here’s a video demo i made of this innovative shower body cleanser.  It’s made in the scent of the ‘Olive Branch” shower gel and “Pop in the Bath’ bubble bar.  It’s a fun idea, but it also works nicely.

Ingredients: Fresh honeydew melon pulp, cellulose, bergamot oil, lemon oil, orange flower, mandarin orange oil, sodium lauryl sulphate.

Lush description: “Dear Inventive Washers,

We’d love to meet you in the bath or shower. You bring the soundtrack, we’ll bring the soap.”

Here’s a family portrait’ i took, though some family members didn’t show up for the photo, but you can see them in the video (below this photo)

Karma bubble bar new style

Karma 5 out of 5 rating

Same signature Karma scent, orange, pine, patchouli, but in an absolutely STUNNING new style. Of all the new lush products this is my favorite looks-wise.  I cannot stop staring at it. My three colors are green, orange and purple, so this bar has two of my favorite colors. Not the only reason i like it though.

Dusky oranges, patchouli and pine. It smells like the classic “head shop”.  Kind of an incense-y hippy-ish vibe.   I happen to love oranges in anything, but this is so different because it’s not a sweet orange.  Not a desserty or ‘yummy’ orange.  Nor is it citrussy in the classic sense.  A most different fragrance; earthy.  I always try keep a few of these around.

Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster Mouthwash

4 out of 5 Rating – See my video demo i made below

 

 

 

Lush has introduced their new line of mouthwash products, including three new solid mouthwash tablets.  Debuting in the Lush kitchen.

I really like these.  As i explain in my review video i didn’t think new tablets would be like commercial mouthwash as far as the feeling after using it.  So fresh and good tasting.  See video for more of my review of this Pan Galactic Garble Blaster.

This planet has – or rather had – a problem, which was this: most of the mouthwashes on it were rather boring, and had been for rather a long time. There was a largely unexplored space to fill, and the only way to fill it was to seek inspiration from the wider, largely unexplored, space around Earth itself. A shot of lemon oil offers warbling refreshment for the palate, quinine packs the same mouthwatering taste that’s found in tonic water, while aniseed and heaps of fizz give your mouth a feeling to remember. If you’re not currently having adventures with the ape-descended life forms of the little blue planet, it’s highly worth the hitchhike there to try this…

After brushing your teeth, pop one tab into the mouth and take a sip of water to start the fizz. Nibble and swish before spitting out. They can also be used throughout the day whenever you fancy a bit or oral refreshment.

The use of a mouthwash should be the final step in the oral routine both in the morning and in the evening. It should not be used alone as a substitute for brushing or flossing. Avoid eating or drinking for half an hour after using the mouthwash for ultimate oral health.

Glacially good breath is mint to be. In fact, it’s on the tipple your tongue. Make yours a double shot of mint for an intoxicating blast of icy coolness. Malic acid tickles your tastebuds with a smooth, juicy flavour, and enhances the spicy exhilaration of bracing peppermint oil. Not shaken, not stirred: just straight up ice-cool refreshment.
