Heavanilli

5 out of 5 rating

Lush Times: Sweet delicious Vanilla Fountain fragrance – tonka bean, jasmine and heaps of vanilla absolute. At the time of writing, we’ve not had the chance to put this to a real live test; we’ve used it on our arms in the creative team meeting, sniffed it with enthusiasm and longing, but as yet, we haven’t been able to take them home with us, smooth them all over our lovers’ bodies to see what happens next. Heavanilly’s melty butters smell of sensual jasmine, vanilla and tonka – and cinder toffee – so we can guess.

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Fair Trade Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera), Perfume, Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata), Hydroxycitronellal, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 73360

I love this massage bar. Out of the 60 or so different Lush massage bars, Heavanilli is one of my favorites. Its made in the Lush ‘Vanillary’ perfume fragrance. Lush has made many products with this popular perfume scent.

I would recommend it. I enjoy using it and Its one that i would buy again and again.

Sappho

2 out of 5 rating

Sappho perfume

“For a limited time only, 30ml bottles of this perfume will be available to order online. This perfume and the rest of The Florence Collection are also available in 100ml bottles in your nearest perfume library.”

Sappho is one of five perfumes which are only sold at the Florence, Italy Perfume Library store. But Lush Uk has them temporarily on their retail site uk.lush.com

I happened to be on the site looking at the mothets day producys and saw them there!

I wanted to like Sappho so much. I bought it because the ingredients vanilla, jasmine, sandalwood, tonka, orris, tobacco and anise seemed perfect.

List of ingredients

Especially when the description said this:

You’ll love this if you like:
– Powdery vanilla scents.
Vanillary perfume.
– Sunny sapphic sensuality on a Greek island.

But when i spray it on, it smells great for a minute then these note come through thats like licorice, jaine and tobacco and this overrides the lovely vanilla quality.

If the licorice-y note wasnt there it would be so good, but unfortunately it burns my nose, just turns strange and is way too strong with my body chemistry. The part thats left over loooonngg after its dried down hours later is aactually kind of nice

actually kind of nicely soft and vanilla like, but it takes literally hours to become this nice scent. I think Lush shpuld take the anise out of it.

“Fell in love with a girl?

Bittersweet and inescapable, this ode to a striking poetess, the Tenth Muse, will shake your senses. Classical orris entwines with carnal jasmine to enchant deep desires.”

Bathos

5 out of 5 rating

See my 4 minute tub demo video below

Roses are red, violets suit you

Sink into the lilac-hued waters of this floral classic. Posies of violet and spicy clove fragrance and soften your skin. The Ancient Greeks used violets in love potions and considered it a symbol of fertility and love – why not be seduced by this sweet, purple bath?

You’ll love this if you like:

– Swirly purple-hued baths that smell like violet flavoured sweets.

– The scent of Daddy-O shampoo, Sugar Daddy-O solid conditioner, or Kerbside Violet perfume. – Taking time to appreciate the small, fleeting moments in life.

Benefits:

– Violet leaf has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects on the skin.

– The scent of violets help to settle your mood and mind, aiding restful sleep.

– Ylang ylang oil helps to reassure and uplift, leaving you feeling happy and carefree.

How to use: Crumble under running water to fill your bath with purple rain and fluffy white bubbles. How to store: Keep in a cool, dry place to keep this potent bubble bar ultra-violet.

The classic spicy “Bathos” bubble bar gives great looking, deep purple water. It has the strong scent of sweet violets and spicy cloves. Barthes is VERY fragrant.  There’s also a teeny bit of dark green glitter on the top. This bubble bar can stand alone without being combined with anything, however, if one wanted a violet theme you could use a violety “Ne Worry Pas” ballistic, wash my hair with the violet smelling “Daddyo”, rub some “Choco La La” massage bar on, and condition my hair with “Retread”.

Sometimes I like to go the “all purple” route,  too and have Bathos with a Lush Jingle Spells  bath bomb or a Lush Blackberry Bomb.

By the way, here’s a picture of a Bathos that is 5 years old. The dates on the wrapper there http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y181/lush-a-lot/lush%20products/Lushbatho1.jpg I found it at the bottom of one of my lush tupperware tubs.

Lush made a liquid Bathos bath foam previous to it becoming this purple bubble bar slice. It was a green bath foam, not purple like the bubble bar. Here’s a picture of the Bathos Bath Foam: http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y181/lush-a-lot/LushBathosbathfoamsml-1.jpg

Here’s a demo video i made
 

Lush Times 2006 Description: If you prefer to keep your bath to yourself and wouldn’t dream of allowing anyone else anywhere near the bathroom when you’re in there naked, please don’t allow the following suggestion to detract from your enjoyment of a bubbly, mauve Bathos bath. If you prefer to share your bath for reasons of ecological soundness or just plain fun, then Bathos is absolutely ideal! We make it with some of most sensual, relaxing essential oils on the planet, including lots of violet leaf which is reputed to help people remember why they got together in the first place. Don’t put one of these in the bath in the morning on a workday. Save it for later.

Sex Bomb shower gel

4 out of 5 rating

This is one of six exclusive shower gels that Lush.co.uk made ‘just because’ from community favorite bath bombs

Honestly, This is the shower gel i was the least excited about. Ive seen sex bomb in one form or another for 17 years. *yawn*

However, i was in for a surprise when i used this for the first time.

Firstly, it has this quite unexpected pink shimmer to it. SO pretty. The bath bomb that this shower gel was named after doesnt have any glitter nor shimmer so this was a pleasant surprise. its not glitter like in Intergalactic shower gel, this is *shimmer*, more subtle than glitter. Beautiful. I just keep gazing at it in the light.

Secondly, the scent isn’t as complex as rhe bsth bomb scent. That said-this is what i could call a classically ‘pretty’ scent. Its feminine and floral. Having rose, and jasmine florals. The herbaceousness of the sage is kind of missing, and the ylang ylang isnt coming across at all to me but….i dont care because this floral shower gel scent has great ‘throw’. Its not a sweet scent. Just floral.

And more importantly two hours after my shower im getting compliments about how i smell at the grocery store, and from my husband. He said it smells sexy.

I SEE you Sex Bomb shower gel! ❤️

Cilla the Caterpillar

5 out of 5 rating

Lush has recently ooened up their biggest store world wide in liverpool. They introduced 350 new products starting at this store. One of these was this bath bomb.

Lush decided to have them available on their lush.co.uk retail site. Thats where i bought this.

Lush made this in their ‘Vanillary’ perfume scent. Its a yummylicous blend of creamy sweet vanilla tonka bean, grounding sandalwood, and sensual jasmine floral. Just the right amount.

This bath bomb is strong wuth the vanillary scent. Smells like sweet vanilla caramel custard pudding. YUM. Yet theres a subtle sensualness to it because of the sandalwood and jasmine.

Im sorry i didnt buy two.

The green and peach colors combine to make pretty bath art.

The combination ultimately making a peridot green color.

Heres my 3 minute tub video with music for you

Tantric Energy

4 or 5 out of 5 rating. See my 3 minute close up sink demo of how it works, and i describe what scent family it’s scent is in the video below.

I love it. I wish it were a wee bit more moisturizing. But its near perfrct, im just being nitpicky lol. I love this product. I think evetyone should try it.

North Polar Bear Left the Tap On

4 out of 5 rating

2018

This is a gorgeous new soap for Christmas made in the Lush ‘Sex Bomb’ scent. The scent is made with jasmine, rose, clary sage, synthetic musk. this soap adds lingonberry to the mix however.

I took some video footage of it at the creative showcase

Lush gas made many products with this same scent. I took a photo below of them all, except one is missing. Anyway this is a floral scent. If you like flowers and other floral scents you would like this NPBLTTO soap.

One thing that i like about it is that the sexy scent stays on the skin even after rinsing, drying off. Hours later i get a slight whiff of it’s sexy perfume.

Its not sweet, its smells mostly like rose and clary sage to my nose, but each persons nose can pick out different notes as primary.

The scent was made to be sexy, and that it is.

I like that we can choose yellow or green. The large soap inthe shops looks aaesome, i took a photo of the North Polar Bear soap at the Lush Creative Showcase.

The product missing from my scent family photos below is ‘Sex n the Shower’ emotibomb.

Lush Description: My Dear Children,

It has been such a long time since I last wrote to you, I hope you are all doing well. Things at the North Pole have been a bit hectic again. We have had a few fairly peaceful years but I should have known that wouldn’t last. You remember my dear friend North Polar Bear and the mischief he would get up to? Well, he has gone and done something silly again. I’m getting too old for these things now.

I was taking a bath, usually it is North Polar Bear who takes baths but even I like them sometimes, as it had been a very busy and tiring week and my bones creak a little now you see and I find that the hot water helps immensely. I was soaking happily (my favourite soap is made with jasmine absolute and ylang ylang oil as it makes me feel happy and even Father Christmas deserves some floral sometimes), when all of a sudden a roaring, rushing sound surrounded my house and the sky lit up like a bonfire! I leapt from the bath in a such a hurry that I splashed the lingonberry infused water all over the floor and dashed out of the bathroom, nearly forgetting my towel in my haste!

As I went outside, it looked like the sky had been set on fire with swirling colours of blue and green and yellow and red and I knew just what had happened. North Polar Bear had left the tap on for the Northern Lights and let two years out in one go! He says it was an accident but I think he just wanted to cause a bit of mischief for old times’ sake. It’s set to be another couple of dark Christmases for us here at the North Pole thanks to him, but the candlelight is quite charming and comfortable really so I don’t mind too much. I rather missed his antics.

I hope you are doing very well. Sending my love to you all.
Yours always, Father Nicholas Christmas

Royalty

5 out of 5 rating. See my Tub Demo video of it that I recorded for you below

This is a Lush Cosmetics bath bomb made exclusively for the New Lush Japan Naked ship opening at the beginning of the new year.

Jack Constantine was kind enough to give me one of each of the six exclusive bath bombs. However i had already bought two when i was at the showcase. So i have one left for a Giveaway!

Here’s a Bathtub Demo of it that I recorded for you

Royalty bath bomb is made with jasmine and vanilla. the lush person at the Creative Showcase told me there was also sandalwood in it.

A Gold Crown. What’s not to like?

The scent of Royalty reminds me of The Lush ‘Vanillary’ scent except this adds sandalwood.

See my tub demo of Royalty that i recorded below.

I don’t know if they add condoning things in this bath bomb but it definitely seems to be more conditioning than most lush bath bombs. The water almost becomes milky.

There is a beautiful gold shimmer in the water. Not too much though.

Desert Date

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

Here’s a photo of mine with my devil duckie.

it smells similar to one of my favorite Lush products ever called ‘Fever’.

desert Date is made with jasmine, sandalwood and rose.

photo below courtesy of @Lushiezzz on Instagram

this is to exfoliate and moisturize in one bar. Much like lush ‘rub rub rub’ or ‘rough with the smooth’ bar, this is made with cocoa butter and illipe butter.

here’s a photo i took of mine below

The scent is a bold floral with a slightly Woody undertone. If you’re familiar with the Lush ‘Fever’ massage bar, ‘Fever’ perfume, or the ‘mirror mirror neck cream then you’ll recognize the sexy scent.

Vertical Abhyanga

see my video of six of these new shower oils below.

Vertical Abhyanga is made with the same fragrance ingredients as their ‘Soft Touch’ body butter bar. The Soft Touch has always been one of my desert island lush product so I’m ecstatic that Lush made something else in this HEAVENLY sweet, spiced cardamom scent. Oh. My. God.

I’ll be recording a demo & review video of mine in the next week April 16-20.

Sugar Plum Fairy scrub

3.5 out of 5 rating

sugarplumfairy-vi

 

This has a nice floral scent.

Ingredients: Sugar, Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric Acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Styrax Resinoid (Liquidambar styraciflua), Vetivert Oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Orange Blossom Absolute (Citrus aurantium amara), Plum Kernel Oil (Prunus domestica), Cocamide DEA, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Titanium Dioxide, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 14700, Colour 45410, Colour 17200

 

Lush Times: Our newest scrubber was inspired by the Tchaikovsky ballet. When Helen was inventing, she thought that plum kernel oil would work a treat because it moisturises the skin and makes it feel silky smooth and adds an almondy scent to the product.

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.

file-sep-26-5-56-34-pm

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.

I made this bath oil demo of this bath oil

29 High Street shower gel

Made in the Lush Kitchen Friday July 28

I love this shower gel.  It’s a nice thick consistency.  It has great throw so you can smell the lovely scent all while you’re showering with it.  It’s lovely scent stays on the skin a bit longer than other lush shower gels.


It’s not particularly moisturizing, and doesn’t have any cocoa butter.  Nor does this shower gel have any glitter.

The 29 High Street was made to have the scent of a Lush store.  So various lush store favorites are represented here, honey i washed the kids, karma, avobath, etc.

Because of these things, and also because this shower gel is so rare, I would rate this shower gel a 5 out of 5 rating.  I would highly recommend it.  I bought six bottles.

file-sep-25-3-29-10-pm

Here’s a demo and review video i made of this shower gel

here is a scent family portrait I created, with all the products Lush has made with this same fragrance.

Bada Bing Bada Boom

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerine, Red Wine, Thyme (Thymus vulgaris), Rose Petal (Rosa centifolia) and Lavender (Lavandula hybrida) Infusion, Propylene Glycol, Fresh Rose Petal Infusion (Rosa centifolia), Perfume, Carrageenan Extract, Synthetic Musk, Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), White Wine Vinegar, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Linalool, *Limonene, Methylparaben. * Occurs naturally in essential oils

Lush.a.Lot’s Review: This was the shower jelly made which smells like the “Sex Bomb” ballistic. It’s a heady floral scented jelly.

Lush Times 2005 description: Bada Bing Bada Boom Shower Jelly is the ultimate in cold showers. Its sensual scents (the same essential oils as Sex Bomb) are blended with red wine and an infusion of rose petals, soothing lavender and stimulating thyme herb. Grab the Bada Bing from the freezer, clean your body with its cool lather and inhale the calming (aphrodisiac) jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage perfumes. That should work just nicely.

Here’s a demo and review video i made of this jelly
