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

List of ingredients

Puddy Holly

4 out of 5 rating

£4.95/$6.49
This is not a returning product but is new.

This smells yummier than i thought it would. I thought it might be spicy like lush holly go lightly but Puddy Holly smells different, like a yummy almond and vanilla dessert.

Puddy Holly is made with Tonka. Tonks bean smells much like vanilla onky a bit carmely.

Its not a strong heavy scent but more of a medium light scent.

Its got conditioning cocoa butter sandwhiched in the middle, which is moisturizing to my uber dry skin.

I like the pretty emerald colored water it gives.

There is also a bit of silver sparkle. Not a large amount though, its every so slight.

I would buy another, but i wouldn’t stock up on them. Thats why i give this bubble bar a 4 out of 5 rating.

Description: Have a holly, jolly bathtime,
Almond oil sweetens your day!
Water a-glow with bubble mountains of snow
And soothing slicks of shea.

Have a holly, jolly bathtime
In a marzipan scented dream.
Soft cocoa butter on your toes,
And fifty shades of green.

Have a holly, jolly bathtime
Let bergamot give you cheer.
Oh by golly have a holly jolly bathtime
This year!

Here is a demo of it in the tub that i recorded for you

Under the Umbrella Tree

I would rate this bath bomb a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a cute bath bomb.   I love the tree shape of it.

This was made with the Lush “Breath of God’ fragrance.

The fragrance is a combination of two Lush scents “Inhale’ and ‘Exhale’.

There are masculine notes such as cedar wood, sandalwood,, and feminine notes such as rose. Together they form the classic Breath of God fragrance, which Lush has sold since 2008. Men would like it but women would like it too It’s both earthy and airy in the same fragrance.

Lush has made a bath bomb In the past called “Inhale Exhale‘ with a similar fragrance.

The bath bomb is a fast fizzes and makes a beautiful, not often seen, lime green water.  So uplifting and hopeful, like Spring.

 

Tree D

4 out of 5 rating. Made with the Ectoplasm bath bomb fragrance of tangeeine, grapefruit and litsea cubeba.. see my tub demo below.

I love that this is a 3D bath melt of a tree. Thus the name ‘Tree D’. We can use one piece or both pieces for one bath.

I’m full on addicted to this citrussy scent.

Demon in the Shower

I give this a 4.5 out of 5.  It gets a half point taken off because it’s very thin.


This is a minty and spicy shower gel with apple juice added. It smells more minty than anything, but with a spicy, clove note that goes well with the mint.  It’s both cold and hot if that makes sense.  Here’s a link to my sink demo video of this shower gel up close. And more of my review of this shower gel.

Play doze

 

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Cocamide DEA, Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Cardamom Oil (Elettaria cardamomum), Lavender Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Fennel Oil (Foeniculum vulgare), Perfume, Colour 59040.

Review: Lush made this for kids, to help calm them before bedtime. It’s a nuclear yellow green bar that makes nuclear yellow green water. Strong lovely lavender smell. This is fun and useful if you need bubbles that have lavender in them. We have French Kiss now but kids loved these, I guess it just wasn’t enough kids so they discontinued this one too. It was good for adults too I thought. Alo tof people didn’t like the color or they didn’t like the color on the tub afterwards or something. I never had a problem with it. I liked it.
Lush Times Spring 2004 description: A bright, BRIGHT bath for the over-energetic over-sevens to quieten them down for bedtime. Play Doze works in many ways. It is a shockingly bright, fluorescent yellow in colour; this is our secret plan to make children want to have it in their baths. In it, we mix up an effective blend of extremely calming essential oils – lots of lavender and ylang, waming cardamon and fennel to clear their busy heads – so that they will quieten down ready for bedtime. One for the kids and the over-grown kids that live inside all of us, Play Doze is a bright Fluorescent yellow Bubble Bar slice designed to clean and calm in equal measures. With lavender and ylang ylang to send your kids to sleep. (Recommended for over 7s). The bath water turns into such an amazing colour, you and your offspring will want to stay in the bath longer and get really clean, without any nagging from you. Tired grown-ups will find that it is superbly relaxing and a great way to get a good nights kip too.

Phoenix Rising

I actually got to see how the Lush Ltd factory in England make phoenix Rising, and i recorded it.

And I made a short video of it in the tub at the bottom of this page.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Icing Sugar, Cocoa Butter, PEG-6 Caprylic / Capric Glycerides, Bergamot Oil, Cassia Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Fair Trade Shea Butter, *Cinnamal, *Citral, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 45410, Colour 42090, Colour 77891, Colour 77510, Frosty Holly Lustre, Gold Lustre,Cinnamon sticks




Lush Times: All the myth and magic of a phoenix, pressed into one bathtime experience, which lets you arise at the end feeling refreshed and ready for the next 500 years. Your phoenix will sink to the bottom then rise in triumph, her mythical sparkling purple and green plumage unfurling through your bath water. She’ll release gentle shea butter, cocoa butter and jojoba oil to leave your skin feather-soft. Exotic essential oils of fruit and spices take your mind on a flight of fancy to distant shores where you are lying on a beach drinking spiced rum.Actually, you won’t want to rise again from this bath – you’ll want to just stay on in there gliding on the dream! The phoenix is often quoted as using cinnamon sticks to make her nest. So we’ve topped this ballistic with some, so she has some handy nesting material, should she wish to stick around at yours for a while. Meanwhile, it will also add to the delicate spiciness of your bath.

Lush description: The work on this website had been going on in the background at Lush for quite some time. Having a current website trading plus a new one that is being built made for very confusing conversations when talking about things for ‘the website’. To end the confusion, we gave the website under construction the name Phoenix. So Phoenix has been very much on everyone’s mind here at Lush; not least Jack, who has been working on it for over a year. When he went into the lab to invent new ballistics, he couldn’t shake his mind free of it – and thus we now have a Phoenix Rising ballistic!

Smells like spicy apples and cinnamon.
This is what it looks like up close in the tub

And this is how the factory makes the phoenix bath bomb
