Not Sleepy shower bomb

I give this a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is one of the #LushLabs exclusive, limited edition shower bombs. Not to be confused with the Lush Labs new ‘Atmospheres’ shower gels

This is not to be confused with a Lush shower emotibomb, which is placed on the shower floor.

No, these shower bombs are for washing with.

I do a wet demo of it here in the 56 second video sink demo below.

Lush Labs at lush.co.uk has made four difderent kinds/scents of these new shower bombs; sleepy, not sleepy, karma, and kowataskaati.

This one, not sleepy, is for waking up. Its got lemon, lime and orange oils in it which are said to promote alertness and mental clarity.

After asking what the scent wax i was told that Its a new scent that Mark Constantine made for this shower bomb.

The product is not cocoa butter based. It feels like a bath bomb. Maybe a firmer kind of bath bomb.

This will definitely last more than one shower.

The scent isn’t weak but its not very strong eithet.

The foam feels very nice. If you have sensitive skin just get some foam on your hands first, then apply to your body.

It rinsrs off very easily.

Then just towel yourself dry and thats it.

Its not gimmick-y, this seems to actually work with just adding water.

And its totally packageless.

Skullduggery

See my tub demo video of Skullduggery below.

4 out of 5 rating.



Lush Times: Skullduggery is an eerie but magical celebration for your bathtub. We used brightening and refreshing lime and neroli for the fragrance and olibanum (also known as frankincense resinoid) to help that citrusy smell stay on your skin until the witching hour and beyond. Lime oil is a popular ingredient in remedies to combat congested skin, cellulite or simply to wake you up! We use expensive neroli oil as it is one of the few essential oils to be scientifically proven to increase serotonin production in the brain – Arriba! Olibanum resinoid, otherwise known as frankincense, has a woody, slightly fruity aroma and covers the skin with a thin, protective film, softening the skin. It is extremely effective on sore, cracked, de-hydrated skin.

He has little swirly designs on his head. I tried to show that in the pic below.

 Jack invented Calavera Bath Bomb last year for our Day of the Dead celebration; a very zesty number full of vibrant, bright colours to get you celebrating in the bath. He chose uplifting citrus oils for the fragrance, as they can help clear your head after a night of celebrating the dead (with one too many tequilas!)



Decorated skulls (or Calaveras) are iconic in Day of the Dead imagery – so this year, we took the concept of Jack’s Bath Bomb last year and gave it a slightly spookier look. This ballistic is limited edition so get it while you can.

This doesn’t make any colors in the bath, but it is cute.

Here’s a demo and review video i made of Skullduggery in the bath

Here’s a ‘scent Family portrait’ photo i took of all the Lush ‘Calacas scented things, except for the wonderful ‘Enchanter’ which is not in the family portrait. I want Lush to pleeeease make Enchanter again someday.  I love Skullduggery and Enchanter equally.  One has the super cute factor, and one is one of the most colorful lush bath bomb i’ve ever seen. 🙂

Supernova

£2.50 Shipping Weight: 200gs

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Cognac Oil (Vitis vinifera), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), *Limonene, *Linalool, Paper Confetti, Colour 45410.* Occurs naturally in essential oils.

Description: Celebrate with a champagne cocktail bath: orange & cognac essential oils and a parade of pretty paper. Drop into a warm bath for fizz and fragrance.

Review: This has the immediately familiar, Sparkling grapefruity scent. . I am one of very few, who doesn’t really love the scent. It’s a pretty bathe bomb, but that’s about it. The bath bomb is visually striking and has a techni-color quality. This is one of lush’s “slow dissolving” ballistics, which means it lasts a long time melting and fizzing in the bath, unlike Lush’s regular ballistics which fizz and dissolve in about 5 minutes. This ballistic disperse multi-colored confetti as it dissolves, in every color of the rainbow.. The confetti floats down to the bottom of the tub in look colorful and whispy. There is also has some pink melty stuff in the bomb itself which as you can see makes a beautiful pink spiral pattern as it melts. Then it started….it started spinning round, and the reason for it’s name became clear to me. It’s trails of foam and the spinning and the colors in the middle from the paper looked like a SuperNova. For those of you who don’t like cleaning bit out of the tub, this ballistic is not for you. It was worth it to me as it was so pretty I had to try it at least once.

Notes: scent is the same as Lush “Celebrate’ boy lotion and “Celebrate’ jelly.

Notes: Champagne Supernova’s name was later changed to Supernova.

For dark nights (Batman the Dark Night get it)

A fang-tastically fruity jelly to put the bite back into bathtime. When the dark night rises, seek the fruity candy-scented salvation of this aloe vera and lime juice jelly and cover yourself in a sweet, carrageenan lather. For an extra stimulating hit, use it fresh from the fridge or freezer. A hint of vitamin E-rich carob syrup delivers extra nourishment to the body and adds to that deliciously fruity perfume.

Here’s a video demo i made of Nightwing jelly

 

 

 

Enchanter

This bath bomb was made in the “Calacas” fragrance. having the same neroli, frankincense (olibanum), lime. It smells perfumey, resinous, a tad sweet, and citrussy with lime. A 5 star bath bomb. It can stain the tub so i add a squeeze of shower gel to the bath when i’m filling it up. I learned that from Lush many years ago. The newer ones aren’t as saturated with colored foam as the original Enchanter bombs but it’s still pretty and smells great. 4 out of 5 rating. Here’s a video demo and review i made of the enchanter

 

 

 

Golden Wonder

5 out of 5 rating!  Gorgeous, glittery blue.  Smells like Buck’s Fizz. When you watch my tub video of Golden Wonder, you will love the water looks like at the end! 🙂

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Sweet Orange Oil, Cognac Oil,Lime Oil, Cream of Tartar,Sodium Laureth Sulfate,Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate,Cocamide DEA,Propylene Glycol,Gardenia Extract, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Limonene,Colour 15510, Colour 45350, Colour 45410,Colour 42090, Edible Golden Stars, Golden Lustre

Lush Times: This ballistic is like a pass the parcel gift – each layer has something different to offer. This is not for a quick bath because it takes its time, this ballistic, its wonders to unfold. First take some time to shake it, listen to the little rattle from within and try to imagine what’s in there. Then drop it in your water and gaze in wonderment as gold turns to yellow, turns to blue and spits out soluble stars along the way.

This isn’t a bath – this is an event !

 

We loved this ballistic so much, we decided to put one of our most popular perfumes in it, so that lots of people will enjoy bathing in it. Long standing customers will recognise the smell of Champagne Snow Showers. Newer customers might like to know that the smell is of a light fizzing champagne cocktail, and contains sweet orange oil, cognac oil and lime oil.

So wonder no longer – put one of these in your basket and try it for yourself This ballistic contains edible gold lustre and soluble paper stars – so there’ll be no sparkly bits left to clean out of your bath afterwards.

Calacas shower gel was first made in a green color in 2011.  It has the “Day of the Dead” lush fragrance.  Lime oil, neroli oil.  It smell slike a light, fragrant perfume.  Like Lime pastille candies but not as sweet.  It’s beautiful.  More current are the Calacas that look different colors depending on what kind of light you’re looking at it under.  Most of the current bottle of Calacas shower gel look like two colors, orange and green, in the same bottle, that is so cool.

Bridal Bouquet

(Champagne Snow Showers fragrance, sparkly orange/lime, and paper hearts)

180g/6.3oz

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus Dulcis), Lime Oil (Citrus aurantifolia), Cognac Oil, Paper Confetti.

Lush Times 2003 description: We like to celebrate. We do it at every possible opportunity. In fact, every morning is a micro celebration of sorts when we award ourselves a Ballistic for having managed to get out of bed in one piece. Mo’s beautiful new Bridal Bouquet Ballistic celebrates weddings. It has one of our best celebratory scents too: throw it in the bath and it will waft the fragrance of Buck’s fizz with a dash of cognac, which will put you in a part mood even if you weren’t so sure before you started. The Bridal Bouquet is made to celebrate weddings*. It could be an engagement, a hen party, the big day itself or fifty years later. Bathe in the scent of celebration and make bathing more of an occasion. (*Incidentally, we are a very inclusive organisation and we would not dream of stopping teh resolutely single, separated, divorced or widowed or not-the-slightest-bit-interested members of the public from enjoying the Bridal Bouquet should they wish.)

 Review: Smells like fizzy orange soda. It’s not an elegant and rounded orange like “Happy for Sad” or “but sparkly, festive and bright. I think this one went really well with the citrussy orange Brightside bubble bar or “Happy” bubble bar. Later Lush used this scent and made the “Christmas Party” bath bomb, Golden Wonder bath bomb, Celebrate lotion, jelly, and perfume.
Wonder.

Northern Lights soap

Ingredients: Water, Rapeseed Oil and Coconut Oil, Perfume,Pine Needle Oil ,Cypress Oil, Lime Oil,

Even though this soap is called “Northern Lights”, it doesn’t share the scent with the beautiful long, purple bath bomb of the same name from a couple of Christmases ago.   This soap has pine, cypress and lime.  I absolutely love the scent of this soap.

Lush Times:  We have an ongoing obsession, here at Lush, with the Northern Lights.  Many a trip has been taken, but rarely have they been observed. Meaning they have become something of a holy grail for us.

So yet again, we are left trying to recreate them in soap, rather than watch them in real life. But it does mean that you get amazing wonderful soaps from us.

This soap was made by Wesley, who perfectly matched the colours of the auroras he watched on the internet, and then found a special way to pour the soap to represent the natural light show.

Then Pia, our trainee perfumer from Finland, came up with an electric, fresh pine and lime perfume to finish off Wesley’s work.  Together they will make you feel like you are in the crisp climes of the arctic circle, with nature’s amazing light show performing about you.

Who said soap was boring?
