Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, FD&C Red No. 4, Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Lavendin Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Pine Oil (Pinus), Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogan flexuosus), Elemi Oil (Canarium commune), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Glitter

 

This is a beautiful bubble bar with it’s orangey-gold glitter.  It has the scent of Lush’s “Karma” fragrance which is orangey, not sweet at all, earthy with patchouli, and a bit of pine. A unisex scent. It leaves a pale orange colored water and TONS of bubbles. There is also glitter in the water. The glitter doesn’t stick on you like the Karma melt but mostly gets washed down the drain if you use a squirt of shower gel in the water. Bling Crosby is so pretty and festive.

Avoshower jelly (Avojelly)

July 2006 International forum jelly party request winner. This is a beautiful emerald green jelly with the lime scent of “Avobath” ballistic. The jelly also has tiny golden green luster dust mixed in, a very small amount of glitter. In fact Avobath ballistic has this lustre powder in it also. Even though there is lemon in this and in Avobath, I think they have a super lime Kool-aid scent. There’s no moisturizing avocado oil in the Avojelly as there is in the Avobath ballistic. Even so, I love the scent of this and it stays on my skin for quite awhile.

Ingredients: Lemongrass infusion, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Glycerine, Popylene Glycol, Carageenan extract, Lemongrass oil, Bergamot oil, Perfume, Rosewood oil, Gardenia extract, Green Glitter (Lustre holly sparkle), Methylparaben. Citrol, Geraniol, Farnesol, Limonene, Linalool.

Avobath

Ingredients: 6.3 oz. (200g) $4.75

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Fresh Avocado, Olive Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Bergamot Oil, Rosewood Oil, Perfume, Gardenia Extract, Green Glitter (Lustre holly sparkle).

Review: Great medium strong tangy lime scent. I’ve heard people say (and I agree) that Avobath smells like “Fruit Loops” cereal a bit. It’s also more moisturizing than most ballistics because of the avoacado oils in it. It’s also a good morning ballistic because of the invigorating aroma of sweet lime. I think this should be a staple in everyone’s Lush ballistic stash. It’s a good one to give to guys too as it’s a gender neutral scent. I usually have Avobath by itself as it stands up on it’s own. Avobath makes the bath water a lovely hard to find color of medium green.

Retro Notes: I do love the combination of B Never’s “Serendipity Phyto Foam” (which is herby, lavender-y and also has lime) with Avobath ballistic. Also if you’ve ever been afraid to try Lush’s “Deep Forest Atmosphere” ballistic, combine it with an “Avobath”, it smells great together.

Notes 2015;  Lush has since made Avoshower shower gel, and Avowash shower gel.  Sometimes i use a squirt of avowash shower gel to make a bath foam and then i have an avobath bath bomb, and the water has a light shimmer of gold in it.  Lush made a giant Avobath bath bomb called “AvoBigBath”.

Lush Times 2006 description: The Avobath (try saying it quickly) is a morning Bath Ballistic, scented with refreshing lemongrass, uplifting bergamot and stabilizing rosewood; just what you need to get you ready to face the world with your head held high. (It’s a bit glittery but not wildly so; you should be able to get away with this one on a work day. Try it at the weekend first if you.ve got a really straight boss.) Organic avocado (hence the name) and olive oil moisturize your skin as you enjoy your morning bathe, inhaling the lovely, fresh scent and splashing about in the bright green water.
