Ingredients: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Water (Aqua), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Spearmint Oil (Mentha viridis), Black Pepper Oil (Piper nigrum), Neroli Oil (Citrus amara), Perfume.
Review: This is a straight up, real smelling Peppermint. Not sweet. Bracingly pepperminty though. It feels cool on the scalp and is good to wash your hair when it’s hot or when you need a little wake up. I loved to use it in the Summer, very refreshing.
Lush 2001 description: You can tell when the Dr. Peppermints have been unwrapped in a Lush shop because the scent of peppermint wafts all through the place and off down the street, drawing people in by their noses. This is a bar for baldies, those who have noticed a certain upward advancement in the forehead department. It is made with essential oils to stimulate the scalp including peppermint, which is also used as a remedy for shock and fainting (both of which can occur when men notice they’re going bald). Relaxing neroli oil is there to stop them caring whether they have hair or not.
This has the same scent as the Lush shower gel called “Don’t Rain on my Parade”.

Lush Times: GRAB YOUR PARTNER…It has a soothing extract of fresh rose petals, moisturising cocoa and shea butters, and a seductive violet scent that flirts with sensuality. It’s a massage experience that will do all the work for you. Grab the bar, dim the lights, and tuca tuca! After the song inspired such raucous enthusiasm, it seemed almost absurd not to have a Tuca Tuca Massage Bar to get people touching each other.
Review: This was made to smell like “Snowcake” soap. It’s a scrumptious scent of light roses and almond paste, like Marzipan cookies. The ony things I use with a Marzibain bubble bar (so as not to sully it’s sublimlely scrummy scent) is “Snowcake” soap of course and also like to use it and then spritz on some Snowcake perfume.
Ingredients: sodium bicarbonate, cream of tartar, sodium laureth sulfate, lauryl betaine, perfume, cocamide DEA, benzoin resinoid, cassie absolute, rose absolute, whole almond.
2001 Yuletide LT description: This Marzibain is one of those Lush specials for people with a sweet tooth who don’t want to eat too much sugar; it’s a sweet “cake” of bubble bath from the bubble bar that smells just like marzipan with the added bonus fragrance of rose and fruity cassie buds (same scent as Snowcake and Big Ed). For piles of white, fluffy, marzipan scented bubbles crumble the whole thing into the running bathwater; it will satisfy your craving for sweet things with no guilt whatsoever.
From the 2002 Yuletide LT: The Marzibain is back, smelling like extra tasty marzipan, the same as last year but not as crumbly like almond icing, more solid like my grandma’s Christmas almond buns (you wuoldn’t have wanted to eat one of these either). You pronounce it to rhyme with marzipan (bain, French for bath = funny Lush pun) Marziban not Marzibane, or else it’s not funny at all is it?

Lush Times: Do you love Tisty Tosty, but are looking for a less serious more playful rose bath? Well this is the one. Instead of serious romantic adult thoughts – this is a run through a rose garden, with your hands brushing the tops of the bushes.
The scent is a light floral rosy accord, of rose absolute and geranium with amber notes of rock rose. The bathwater has a rosy pink glow with a sprinkling of tigerlily, apple blossom and larkspur petals adrift on the surface. Mo says this is a return to her old style ballistics; for times when you want nothing but an escape to simpler times of flowers, nature and innocent simplicity.
Since getting their OBEs, Mark and Mo have had lots of requests to attend events. But none so welcome as an invite to the annual festival at the parish church where Mark grew up, to crown this year’s Rose Queen. The icing on the cake came when Mark met the local vicar and discovered he was wearing our Breath of God fragrance – he then introduced Mark to his daughter, who was wearing our Imogen Rose fragrance! With serendipity like that, you have to come home and invent a product to mark the event.
