Karma bubble bar new style

Karma 5 out of 5 rating

Same signature Karma scent, orange, pine, patchouli, but in an absolutely STUNNING new style. Of all the new lush products this is my favorite looks-wise.  I cannot stop staring at it. My three colors are green, orange and purple, so this bar has two of my favorite colors. Not the only reason i like it though.

Dusky oranges, patchouli and pine. It smells like the classic “head shop”.  Kind of an incense-y hippy-ish vibe.   I happen to love oranges in anything, but this is so different because it’s not a sweet orange.  Not a desserty or ‘yummy’ orange.  Nor is it citrussy in the classic sense.  A most different fragrance; earthy.  I always try keep a few of these around.

Lush description: Karma has a way of reinventing itself and appearing in different forms whilst remaining recognizable to its followers. In this case it appears as a cloud of fine powder that settles all over your body leaving an aura of patchouli and orange oils, calming the skin with calamine.

Karma shower gel

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Perfume, Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Lavendin Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Pine Oil (Pinus), Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogan flexuosus), Elemi Oil (Canarium commune), Sodium Chloride, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides).

This is a shower gel with the Lush “Karma” scent of orange, patchouli and pine. This was invented when Lush Hilary made only five bottles for a special raffle on the Lush UK forum for forum members only. More recently, in the Lush Kitchen, Karma shower gel was remade for a limited time.

Karma shower gel is a much better way to get the Karma scent on your bod than say, the soap, except, it’s too drying on my skin.  It’s also possible to wash your hair with it or even use it as a bath foam. It’s easier to lather than the Karma soap. It’s thick and gelatinous. And a little goes a long way on a shower pouff, vs. the soap gets smaller and disappears much quicker oz for oz.  The Karma fragrance stays on the skin longer than other lush shower gels too! 😀 I give this a 2.5-3.0 out of 5 rating.

Fern Shui

DC’ed 1999

VEGAN:

Ingredients: bicarb, citric acid, perfume, lemon oil, lemongrass oil, litsea cubeba oil, fern (aspidum s.p.), lemongrass, lime leaves, gardenia extract


Lush 1999 description:
A fresh, tangy but mellow bomb full of ferns and pieces of lemon grass, reminscent of a walk through a forest. As the water runs away you can read the pattern which the fern leaves make on the bath, like reading your fortune in tea leaves in the bottom of a cup. This is Lush’s homage to daft fads. It is scented with delightful lemon grass oil, which we shall continue to use long after the current trend for sticking it in every dish in astonishingly expensive London restaurants has long since been forgotten.

I was surprised at how much plant material thereis in this bath bomb. It definitely lives up to it’s name. Tons of plant stuff.
Alsosurprising to me is the smell. I love the smell. It’s not like anything i’ve smelled before bath bomb wise. It’s fresh, lemongrass and the pleasant smell of greenery. The first time i used this bath bomb i didn’t use anything to contain the pieces of ferns. The second time i used this is got a small kitchen strainer and put the bomb in there so i got just the water, not the plants.

Avobigbath

lushavobigbath

 

Lush Times: The Avobath is one of those ballistics which gets evening people going in the morning, when they would much rather be asleep, so imagine the effect a HUGE one will have. This is an amazingly refreshing Ballistic that smells of stimulating lemongrass. Take a good sniff before you throw it into the bath to revive a sleepy brain. If you absolutely have to get up early and still function as a normal human being, then you need an Avobath a day.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Fresh Organic Avocado (Persea gratissima), Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Olea europaea), Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogon schoenanthus), Bergamot Oil (Citrus Aurantium bergamia), Rosewood Oil (Aniba rosaeodora), *Citral, *Geraniol, *Farnesol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Green Glitter (Lustre holly sparkle)
