Supertramp shower gel

4 out of 5 rating.

This shower gel.is exclusive to the Lush Uk Kitchen subscription box.

Its actually made by combining two existing

Lush products: ‘Tramp’ and ‘Smaragadine’.

Tramp is a old lush favorite shower gel that smelled very earthy like a fairy glade. Its main scent notes were patchouli and oakmoss.

Smaragadine was an even older product that was a liquid bubble bath made with mint, lavender, rose petal, sandalwood, oranfe peel, chamomile, petitgrain and ginger.

Ingredients: White Horehound and Peppermint Leaf Infusion, Balm Herb, Rose Petal and Lavender Flower Infusion, Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Fine Sea Salt, Organic Orange Peel Decoction, Patchouli Oil, Petitgrain Oil, Pimento Berry Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Ginger Oil, Plantain Vinegar Gel, Perfume, Methyl Ionone, Eugenol, *Limonene, Linalool, Chlorophyllin, Methylparaben. * Occurs naturally in essential oils

Review: Thick, green and mossy. Doubles as a bubble bath. Very burnt-patchouli/clove scented; if you like the Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bar, you’ll probably like Supertramp. Scent lingers on the skin for hours after showering. I like it, but not quite as much as Grass.

Lush Kitchen description: An earthy, mystical shower gel that smells like wandering through tall dark pine trees in an enchanted forest over a cool soft carpet of moss. With horehound to cleanse the skin, peppermint to add a warming, fresh top note and the sensual, floral scents of lavender and rose.

So Supertramp has all of these notes. Its a multi layered spa type of scent.

The Supertramp shower gel is a dark green,

thick gel that is calming and soothing.

I woukd say that its one of the best green, earthy shower gels that Lush has made, with the exception of Tramp.

Its a unisex scent that would be liked by both men and women.

The Supertramp in this Lush Kitchen Subscription box is the regular 250g Medium size.

I would recommend and would buy another one if i had the chance.

Heres a video i recorded of the Supertramp shower gel https://youtu.be/3KzOaX_lBlw

Fireball

4 out of 5 rating. See my 2 minute tub demo below.

This is a beautifully designed bath bomb with vibrant yellow, orange and red colors. Looks just like a fireball! Its also got a bit of gold glitter on the red part.

This bomb was made with orange oil, ginger, and mustard powder so its nice and warming on a cool winter’s night.

It was madecin the popular Lush ‘Cinders’ scent

Its both a fast, noisy fizzer And a slow, quiet melty fizzer. Plus its got popping cansy for that ‘crackling cinders in a fireplace’ sound.

The scent is nice, medium strong. If the scent were stronger i woukd give this a 5 out of 5 rating.

The end result is a bright orange water with just a very small bit of gold glitter in the water. Its not what i would call glittery water.

Video demo

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.

Gingerbread Man sparkle jar

5 out of 5 rating.
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.

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.

Hot Java

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cinnamon Sticks (Cinnamomum cassia), Perfume, Ginger Oil (Zingiber officinale), Cinnamon Powder (Cinnamomum cassia), Ginger Powder (Zingiber officinale), Coriander Oil (Coriandrum sativum), Ginger Absolute (Zingiber officinale), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Juniperberry Oil (Juniperus communis), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), D&C Red No. 33

This is/was Lush’s spicy ballistic and it smells like clove, cinnamon, and ginger. It’s a good staple ballistic for the cold weather months for most every Lushie I’ve ever read.  To me It needed some depth. It was very acidic, and astringent, like tea is.  It’s more bitter then i would’ve imagined. I just wish it could’ve been sweeter, just a teeny weeny bit.  There is cinnamon bark in the ballistic which drift around in the water but Hot Java isn’t spicy enough in my opinion to be on it’s own. It’s nothing like Lush’s “Marathon” bubble bar, which was really spicy. After I used my five up, I never bought one again.
Hot Java was DCd in 2007. It was in regular production for about 1 1/2 years.

LushHotJava

Lush Times 2006 description: Jump into a Hot Java bath every time you need warming up. It’s for cold days . so that’s most of them . or days when you’ve got a cold or when you.ve been out in the cold and need warming up right through. It’s good for when you’re feeling creaky after exercising too. Run a warm bath, drop in the Hot Java and let the spices soak right in. There’s warming ginger oil, warming ginger powder and some warming ginger absolute too. Very warm! Powdered cinnamon is traditionally used to relieve aches, ylang ylang relaxes your muscles and juniper berry oil is said to help relieve stiff joints. A week in the tropics would be lovely but a Hot Java will do nicely.

Dreamtime bath oil

5 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute video demo below.

file-sep-26-8-00-42-pm

This is SO beautiful in the bath, beautiful surprises. This gets prettier as it melts away.  What a knockout color when it melts.  It looks so elegant, but when it’s in the water WOW.  Purple heaven.  It has the wonderfully spicy lavender and ginger scent.  It was very moisturizing to my skin.

The lavender also promotes sleep.

I will definitely be buying more of these gorgeous things.

I can use them when i want to take ‘clearing my energy’ kind of a bath.

 

 

I made a 2 minute video demo below for Lush Oxford Street ‘Dreamtime’ bath oil. It has the same wonderful lavender scent as the refgular current ‘dreamtime’ bath melt.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

From the title of a Ray Bradbury novel/screenplay/movie.

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Almond Oil, Perfume, Ginger Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Oakmoss Absolute.

Review:  Having a real ginger root scent, and not that of Gingerbread.  The ginger is softened by lovely Jasmine and almond oil.  This is a good blend of ginger and jasmine. The oakmoss lending that “spooky’ quality from the store of the same name.  If it’s a fresh Something Wicked bathmelt you can smell the layers of scent, pretty floral, earthy oakmoss,  spicy  ginger.    That said, i wish there were more scent.  I’ve had a few that were stronger and the scent was very nice.  But the weaker scented melts have to be brought up to the nose in order to smell them.

It makes a GORGEOUS color pattern in the water if it’s a fresh one, as you can see in my photo below.

Lush UK also made a Something Wicked Lotion for forum members only in 2009 or 2010.  It was SO good.  My photo of the lotion below.

 

Lush Times 2006 description: Possibly the Queen of our new bath melt selection. Ginger and jasmine envelope you in a sensual haze of soft, warm, welcoming swirls of glittery, moisturising foam. Wicked in every sense of the word.

 

This is what the Something wicked melt looked like during halloween 2008, with a dark pink red glitter.

 

Here’s an 8 second video showing my something wicked perfume.


 

Elixir bath melt

 

This was always a favorite of mine.  It’s like Ceridwen’s Cauldron bath met, but more exotic smelling.  It has one of my faovrite spices-Cardamom- and rose petals and ginger oil.  It was both yummy and gorgeous.

There was also an Elixir bubble bar, which was also beautiful in the bath.

And the blue is  a limited edition one i got for the Lush Holidays years ago.

 

Here’s a video (not a demo)

Lemon Days and Ginger Beer

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Lemon Peel, Powdered Ginger, Perfume, Ginger Oil,  Mimosa Absolute, Red Mandarin Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Geranium Oil , Bergamot Oil, Gardenia Extract , Colour 19140.

Review: This ballistic was discontinued about as quickly as it came out. Loads of people liked it on the forum but I guess it just didn’t sell at all and was pulled a few months after introduction. It smells like the perfume Ginger, highly floral rose but it has a strong lemony top note also. I wouldn’t normally like this combo but Lush also includes Sandalwood, Mimosa (like is in 17 Cherry Tree Lane soap and Sakura ballistic) , and also some red mandarin oil. So while i don’t hate it, i don’t love it either. It’s quite strong when fresh and the red mandarin orange oil and sandalwood is covered up by the fresh ginger and lemon scent, but when this ballistic mellows a bit it’s lovely. It makes bright yellow water.  3 stars.

Granny Takes a Dip bubble bar

April 2015 – My Video of this below

Debuting at their Oxford Street store in London, and then coming to UK and US stores a month later, this comes at a time when lush were discontinuing their bath bomb of the same name.

I like the bath bomb more than the bubble bar.  There was a whole show involved with the bath bomb.  An unfurling of psychedelic beauty.  Whereas the bubble bar crumbles into the huge amount of bubbles, which is good, after all it is a bubble bar.  But i like the :show” of the bath bomb a bit more.  Dunno if i’ll buy this one again.  The scent wasn’t as strong as i remember the bath bomb to be.  It is a gorgeous looking bubble bar though.

Lush Description:  This ginger, pepper and lemon-scented bubble bar turns your water psychedelic and puts some colour in your life. Simply crumble underneath the running tap to create grounding, spicy bubbles. Its spicy, citrusy scent will pep you up: lemon oil boosts the mood, while ginger and pepper are warming.

Description: Forum special – Spring 2009. “What can we say about this lady’s campaign to get her own way ?? You have all seen it.

We tried ignoring her, we tried patronising her, we tried taking out an injunction. But when all that failed, we simply had to accept that she is made of sterner stuff than us and we should just roll over and submit. So here it is – the badass assed gel you ever will see !! “

Granny Takes a Dip bath bomb

Discontinued July 2015

Video below – I like this bath bomb.  The “show” that it gives in the tub is spectacular.  It makes a dizzying array of colors, growing ever psychedelic as more of it dissolves in the water.  It’s a flat bath bomb, having varied colored rings within rings.

 

 

In April 2015 this was discontinued.  At the same time, Lush made a new bubble bar of the same name and scent.  I think the reason they discontinued this bath bomb,  after it only being in stores for a year or so,  is that this  was a particularly fragile bath bomb since it was designed with rings within rings, and may have broke more often in the store displays than other of the lush bath bombs.

Fizzy O Therapy

Video below:

Review: A spicy smaller ballistic at 95g, the size of butterball bath bomb.  Fizzy O has mustard seed and powdered mustard added and all the other warming spices (which accumulated on the bottom of the tub and were kind of scratchy).   This was DCd in 2002.

Ingredients: bicarb, citric acid, ginger powder, mustard powder, clove bud, perfume, cinnamon leaf oil, coriander oil.

Lush Times 2002 description: Have you overdone the physical a bit? Fizzy O’Therapy is the one for soothing the sore feet of marathon runners or marathon shoppers, easing the pulled muscles of footballers who’re old enough to know better, relaxing the shoulders after a long day at the word processor….It’s stuffed full of refreshing coriander, stimulating oils of clove and cinnamon plus hot mustard and ginger powder to ease your aching bodies and feet.

Little Dragon reusable bubble bar wand

5 out of 5 rating See my short demo video of this below.

This is made with a Spicy clove and ginger scent. Those of you familiar with Hot Toddy and liked it, would like this.

This wand-type, re-usable bubble bar is an absolutely beautiful orange-red color, with golden shimmer. It leaves the water a red color with golden shimmer in it. The red doesn’t stain the tub in any way. It’s a strong spicy scent. Especially good if you need warming up on a cold night.

Lush description:  Awaken the Dragon – A roaring hot, ginger and cinnamon bubble bath to put a little fire in your belly.
