Melusine

5 out of 5 rating See my 2 minute tub demo of this gorgeous bath bomb below 🙂

According to Wikipedia

Melusine (French: [melyzin]) or Melusina is a figure of European folklore and mythology(mostly Celtic), a female spirit of fresh water in a sacred spring or river. She is usually depicted as a woman who is a serpent or fish from the waist down (much like a mermaid). She is also sometimes illustrated with wings, two tails, or both.

Lush has opened up a new store in the Harajuku area of Japan. At this new, special store Lush will sell 35-50 exclusive bath bombs.

One of these exclusive Japan Harajuku store bombs is this Melusine.

This bomb was made with their fan favourite ‘Avocado Co Wash shampoo’ scent. Its made with litsea cubeba, which is a lemony smelling herb. Reminds me of lemon grass. Its also got frankincense (olibanum), which has also always smelled lemony at times to me.

Altogether Its more of a sweet and sour citrus scent. Its a strong scent.

Description; If you’re feeling like a nervous wreck, drop Melusine a line. This mesmerising mermaid bath bomb is sure to make waves. Sweet lemony litsea cubeba and cheerful bergamot oil lift your senses, while olibanum will have you floating in no time. Finally a pinch of carrageenan extract hydrates the skin, delivering a hefty dose of vitamin sea. Watch as your cares drift away.

Because its a slower, foamier type of bomb, which lends tomy relaxation, and also because of the beautiful color and glitter, and the fact that the fragrance is good and strong in this bath bomb-i give it a 5 out of 5 rating.

Lush also made an exclusive perfume ‘Avocado Wash’ and sold it at lush.co.uk

Strawberry Santa

5 out of 5 rating

This wonderful holiday limited edition soap for 2018 has the scent of ‘Yummy yummy yummy’ shower gel and ‘Peeping Santa’ bubble bar.

This is one of those soaps that is almost too cute to use.

That cocoa butter cream in the middle looks delicous.

I was wondering how it’s shape would be condusive to washing. However it was just a matter of holding it in more of a cupping fashion.

The scent is surprisingly and pkeasantly strong. Thank goodness.

It really is a more moisturizing soap because of the conditioning cocoa butter in the soap.

Its made with fresh strawberries, geranium, and frankincense. This gives it a fruity, sweet, but equally floral and resinous scent.

The combination is addictive.

I have used every Lush Yummy yummy yumky scented product that Lush has made in the past and this soap does not dissappoint.

Its not as sweet as say the ‘snow fairy’ soap but almost. Its one of the sweetest soaps this holiday.

This is a soap that smells so good, works so well at moisturizing, is cute, that i would have to buy 3-5 of these.

Here is a review i recorded of this soap

Description: The weather outside may be frightful but Christmas showers have never been so delightful. What better way to finish off a great feast than with a creamy dessert, sandwiched between a cocktail of fresh strawberry juice and uplifting bergamot oil. Not to be mistaken for food, take this soapy little fellow and lather up under sweet suds of calming olibanum oil and conditioning peach kernel oil. Santa’s wearing a new suit this year, it’s strawberry sweet and totally unique. Hold him upright in your hand and massage into your palm to build up a lather that Father Christmas would be proud of.

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.

Skullduggery



Lush Times: Skullduggery is an eerie but magical celebration for your bathtub. We used brightening and refreshing lime and neroli for the fragrance and olibanum (also known as frankincense resinoid) to help that citrusy smell stay on your skin until the witching hour and beyond. Lime oil is a popular ingredient in remedies to combat congested skin, cellulite or simply to wake you up! We use expensive neroli oil as it is one of the few essential oils to be scientifically proven to increase serotonin production in the brain – Arriba! Olibanum resinoid, otherwise known as frankincense, has a woody, slightly fruity aroma and covers the skin with a thin, protective film, softening the skin. It is extremely effective on sore, cracked, de-hydrated skin.

 Jack invented Calavera Bath Bomb last year for our Day of the Dead celebration; a very zesty number full of vibrant, bright colours to get you celebrating in the bath. He chose uplifting citrus oils for the fragrance, as they can help clear your head after a night of celebrating the dead (with one too many tequilas!)

Decorated skulls (or Calaveras) are iconic in Day of the Dead imagery – so this year, we took the concept of Jack’s Bath Bomb last year and gave it a slightly spookier look. This ballistic is limited edition so get it while you can.

This doesn’t make any colors in the bath, but it is cute.

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

Here’s a ‘scent Family portrait’ photo i took of all the Lush ‘Calacas scented things, except for the wonderful ‘Enchanter’ which is not in the family portrait. I want Lush to pleeeease make Enchanter again someday.  I love Skullduggery and Enchanter equally.  One has the super cute factor, and one is one of the most colorful lush bath bomb i’ve ever seen. 🙂

Bling! toothy tabs

Orange and Frankincense

I like the taste of these particular toothy tabs called ‘Bling!’  It’s nice and orange, like a real orange.  Even though there is gold powder on these it doesn’t get your mouth filled with gold dust glitter.  In face when you rinse your mouth after brushing, it’s all gone, just the taste remains. 🙂  These are my favorite tasting of the new shimmery toothy tabs.
