Lush has opened up a new store in the Harajuku area of Japan. At this new, special store Lush will sell 35-50 exclusive bath bombs. One of these exclusive Japan Harajuku store bombs isMarshmallow World.
Its made with the popular scent of a Lush hair conditioner called ‘American Cream’, which is an herbal vanilla blend.
It’s made with strawberries for their skin properties , not for the primary scent. The scent is sage-which is a bitter herb-and vanilla, and we all know what vanilla smells like. So put bitter herbs and vanilla together with a bit of lavender, which is even more of an herbally flower, and you have the American Cream scent.
So you can see that it doesn’t smell like strawberries.
I like to stress this fact because i always see disappointed people writing lush comments like ‘but it doesnt smell like strawberries like some of your other strawberry scented things’.
Whew. Now that we have that out of the way 😉 let me talk about what this bomb looks like.
Marshmallow World is such a pretty bomb on the outside, with lovely pink and having purple and yellow striations. It pooks like an unfamilair but fun planet.
It fizzes and makes a baby pink foam and turns the water a light pink color. This bomb must have somethung special in it which is softening to the skin. It feels moisturizing a bit.
What a beautiful scent. While American Cream scent isn’t my favorite, i don’t hate it either by any means. Its a calming scent to me. I think its quite a meditative scent..with a teaspoon of yumminess thrown in.
Lush has made three other bath bombs in the past years with the American Cream scent with different names. But i must say this is the prettiest version.
It doesnt make full-on bath art per se, but it is still beautiful as it fizzes in the tub.
I would by one more but its not one i would stock up on like i did with some of the other community favorites/Japan store bombs like ‘Tender is the Night’, ‘The Comforter’, ‘Melusine’, ‘Golden Pear’.

If youre an American Cream lover than i suggest you stock up on these limited edition beauties!
Lush description: Indulge in a sugar bath scented with American Cream – you’ll get all of the sweet-shop glee and none of the post-binge guilt. Vanilla scented with a touch of strawberry, this multi-coloured marvel is a fiesta of fizz. Marshmallow powder soothes and softens, while granulated sugar adds a sugary flourish, you’ll smell good enough to eat!
Lush Labs have released six new (sort of) perfumes. I say sort of new necause Lush released two or three of these in 2005 when they had their sister company in London called ‘B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful’. I still have my original Cocktail, Two Hearts and Assasin perfumes from that boutique.
Back then people in the U.S. could buy the products at the B Never boutique online through the Lush Uk site.
I bought Two Hearts Beats Again, and Over and Over perfumes this morning, as well as the new ‘Scrub Scrub Scrub’ body wash scrub.
Assasin used to be sold as a scent for Men. But i know women who like the Assasin scent too.
Cocktail- Lush used to sell a shower gel up until 2017 called ‘Wash That Man Out of My Hair’, and that was the ‘Cocktail’ scent. Its an effervescent blend of lavender, jasmine, bergamot, rose, sandalwood and ylang ylang.
Its kind of a fun scent. A bubbly floral scent.
Two Hearts Beats Again is slightly different than the original ‘Two Hearts Beating as One’ perfume that Lush used to sell at their B never boutique. This August 2018 version deletes the geranium and adds sandalwood! Yay! Im glad because the original needed some grounding.
Orange Blossom is exactly that. Pure unadulterated orange blossom. Lush has sold this perfume twice before.
Metamorphosis perfume smells just like the bath bomb of the same name. It smells earthy, and licirice-y.
Over and Over perfume smells just like the bath bomb of the same name. Citrussy Lime, green cypress, bergamot and spicy fennel.

Here is my Lush Labs Haul (with Demos) Video of the ‘Atmospheres’ shower blobs and the shower bombs.
Here is a video review and sink demo of the ‘Sleepy’ shower bomb
Update today May 29, 2018 #LushLabs announced, via the lush kitchen Instagram account, that they will sell tickets to the 2018 Lush Creative Showcase. Heres a link to last year’s Creative Showcase 2017 event.
Many customers were angry that there are not going to have any products to sell people on the site today as mentioned by lush earlier. Lush code to instead offer tickets today to the Uk event instead.
Below are Lush Labs products for April 2018.
Here’s my video describing these items
About 13.7 billion years ago there was a big bang and the universe blew up like soup does when you leave it in the microwave too long. Then bath bombs were invented.
And now Lush have come up with a new idea that won’t fit on the shelf above your sink (and a whole host of forward-thinking exclusives that will). Intrigued? Seek out #lushlabs on Instagram.
I made a video on my Lush reviews youtube channel i show my trip to England, given to me by Lush Uk. in this video below i go to the Lush 29 High Street labs in 2014. As you can see in the video the gentlemen explains the two offices at this location are the labs where Mark Constantine and Rowena Bird work on the Lush inventions. All lush products start here. It’s a lovely location where the original facade of the original Lush store is located.
This location is where Lush will be making something exclusive for people to buy on April 29, and all I can say is there are some exclusive Lush products that I have which I need to hurry up and review!
