Pirates of the Carageenan

5 out of 5 rating

I demo’d this bath bomb in a 4 minute video below with music for you.

This bomb has a green, woody, earthy scent.its made with carageenan which is a type of sea weed. Its said to aid in softening skin. It does indeed as i found out after my bath.

Lush added patchouli, sandalwood and kombu which is yet another kind of sea weed mixture.

The colors are green, yellow, and gold shimmer. The colors combine to make a gorgeous peridot green color.

I used another Lush product, “Demon” bath oil in my bath after i demo’d the Pirates bomb for you. The two combined to make an olive green water with golden sparkle, seen in the very last photo below.

My skin was very soft an hour after my bath when my husband noticed how soft my arms were.

I would recommend this slow fizzing, colorful bomb.

Love Token

4 out of 5 rating.  See my 2 minute Tub Demo and review video below

I LOVE this new scent that Lush has created.

Theyve used it for Christmas in the Gingerbread Man Sparkle Jar, which im obsessed with.

Here’s my tub demo video, check out the glitter!

This is a reusable bubble bar, meaning you can use it more than once.

This was made with the yummy Gingerbread Sparkle jar scent. Its NOT the Lush floral ‘Ginger’ scent. This is a spicy yummy, Christmassy gingerbread scent.

If you have sore muscles or are cold this would be a good bath product to use because the ginger in this is nice and warming on the skin.

The bubble bar produces lots of bubbles.

You can use it for more than one bath but i used a whole one for my demo.

I love the gold shade water it makes, and i also love the gold sparkle it has too!

I stayed a little longer than i usually do in the bath just because of the therapuetic benefits of the ginger.

I would rate this a 4 out of 5. If it was a non-reusable, softer, smooshy type of lush bubble bar i would give it a 5 out of 5.

See my demo video and how to use video below

This smells so spicy and amazing. Its not the floral lush ginger fragranc, thank goodness, No this Gingerbread man sparkle jar has a real holiday gingerbread goodness scent.

This is another knock out wonderful product from Lush for Christmas.
i love the two products in one concept of the Lush ‘sparkle jars’.
what they are are little gorgeous containets made out of solid massage jar mixture and inside of it is dusting powder in the same fragrance!

Lush description The secret to soft skin? Okay, I’ll tell you. Do you know the muffin man?
The muffin man?
The muffin man.
Yes, I know the muffin man, who lives on Drury Lane?
Well, when you’re feeling in need of an extra festive treat, poke holes into this Gingerbread Man’s buttons and dust yourself all over to leave skin feeling silky and smooth. After the dusting powder is all used up, the Fair Trade organic cocoa butter pot can be massaged in, to moisturise and soften while clove bud and ginger oils keep you feeling warm, cosy and smelling of Christmas baking.

Here is a review and demo of how to use it.

Star Light, Star Bright

One of only three or four lush products ever, that are all silver.
This has lime and ginger, so it smells bright. And the silver shimmer in the water is awesome.

Description: Catch a falling star and put it in your… bath. We have been working for a long time to make this Christmas bath melt – a shimmering bright star for an extra special bath filled with light and lustre. The shea butter fondant centre inside this bath melt is rich and moisturising, creating a soft and creamy bath. When the star melts, its silvery lustre spreads into the water creating a magical trail of starlight. Refreshing ginger and zesty lime oil inspire positivity and will also give you an extra boost. Close your eyes, make a wish, crush this melt under running water and watch as your bath turns into a turquoise, silvery pool of star light.

 

Here’s a demo video of this 

13 Rabbits bubble bath

Ingredients:  cocoa butter, laureth 3, cinnamon sticks, walnut oil, peanut oil, perfume, cocoa, whole cloves, ginger oil

Lush Times: This was inspired by a binge on McVities new dark chocolate ginger biscuits. That should give you a flavour of what’s in store. After boiling cinammon sticks and clove buds, we mix in our favourite Elizabethan blend of spice oils, ginger it all up with some ginger oil, pour in the dark chocolate liquer and add baths full of bubbles. When used in the shower makes everything smell surprisingly like a chocolate cream bar.
The story so far:
In 1939 Professor Peyton discovered El Tajin in southern mexico. He also discovered the exploits of 13 Rabbit, a ruler in the 1st century. His name, derived from the Mesoamerican calendar, is written with a rabbit surrounding two bars next to three dots. The Mayans were keen on spice and chocolate so we named this after him. All perfectly logical and not at all contrived!

Review: When you squeeze it out of the bottle, out comes a thick, milk chocolate colored liquid. This really does smell like milk chocolate, except a less sweet milk chocolate than is what might be in a candy bar. Right underneath the chocolate note is the ginger scent. Ahh, now we have a slightly spicy chocolate. the chocolatey scent does not last on the skin too long unfortunately but the opportunity for hedonism in the shower or bath increases two fold with this product.

Aside from this bubble bath Lush also made a 13 rabbits shower gel, and a 13 rabbits bath melt.
