Snowdrop

Initially made in 2008 by Lush UK.

See a video link below.

It’s an all white bomb with a large polished sugar crystal on top. It doesn’t make bath art and it’s a fast fizzier. No matter who reviews this bomb, the consensus is that this smells heavenly. 😊 It’s orange and mint, which is a rare combination for Lush. It’s also slightly sweet. I love the scent.

Here’s a video of it from Comfortinscents on instagram

Ingredients: 2829 Snowdrop £2.95

Large Sugar Crystals, Perfume, Iridescent, Mandarin Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Peppermint Oil, Limonene, *Linalool.

Lush Times Xmas 2008: Astonishingly refreshing, head-clearing beauty! You might be tempted by the bright colours of the other Lush Ballistics, but promise us that you won’t miss out on the new Snowdrops bath. If the big sugar crystals don’t tempt you, and the iridescent sparkles aren’t your bag please take one home ewith you all the same. Drop it in the bath and your life will change for the better. Drop it in the bath and your life will change for the better. take the head clearing, reviving citrus scents of mandarin and grapefruit, then add a genius dash of peppermint and you have the most amazing, life affirming Ballistic ever to sneak up on you and give you the slap in the face that you need (metaphorically speaking of course). Once a Snowdrops bomb has woken you up in the morning, you will need to buy more. But no! These are seasonal specials! Buy a big airtight container and stock up on as many as you can carry – that’s if we haven’t got there first and bought them all.

Polar Bear soap

This isn’t the same scent as this Christmas’PolarBear bubble bar. This one has coconut, orange and mint.

When i buy my Christmas products and they’re delivered- i’ll write my reviews, post my tub bath water photos and video demo here for you. 😊

Abombinaball shower jelly

5 out of 5 rating.

See my demo and desceiption video below.

Made as a surprise for inclusion in the May 2020 Lush Kitchen subscription box.

Its made in the same scent as the limited edition bath bomb of the same name.

Its scent is made with peppermint, vanilla and orange oil. Its a yummy, sweet vanilla mint.

This can be used whole on the body as soap in the shower or as i show in my video one can cut it up and use it in a kitchen seieve as a bubble bath.

Freeze

4 out of 5 rating


Vegan 8.4oz

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Fresh Spring Water (Aqua), Fresh Scottish Sea Water (Aqua), Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Aloe Vera Gel (Aloe barbadensis), Sea Salt (Sodium chloride), Perfume, Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Bergamot Oil (Citrus bergamia), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Colour 42045, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.

:lol:

Review: Woo! That’s the way it feels. Powerfully minty with a teeny weeny bit of citrus. Its kind of a sweet mint, more sweet than ‘Dirty’ not as herbally as ‘Dirty’. It’s fabulous in the morning or when it’s hot and muggy outside. Oh and ladies, don’t get this near your va jay jay, it can be kind of uncomfortable for sensitive areas.

Lush 2005 Description: Peppermint has this amazing quality of making your feel cool when you’re hot and warm when you’re cold. When you’re in a warm shower and you put a dollop of Freeze Shower Gel on your body it gives you a refreshing, tingly feeling all over. Peppermint has been used for thousands of years to help the skin stay soft and the mind stay focused. One view is that it was named ‘mente’ meaning thought because it is said to help concentration and inspiration. If you lack either of these, try making Freeze your morning shower gel and shampoo of choice.

Supertramp shower gel

4 out of 5 rating.

This shower gel.is exclusive to the Lush Uk Kitchen subscription box.

Its actually made by combining two existing

Lush products: ‘Tramp’ and ‘Smaragadine’.

Tramp is a old lush favorite shower gel that smelled very earthy like a fairy glade. Its main scent notes were patchouli and oakmoss.

Smaragadine was an even older product that was a liquid bubble bath made with mint, lavender, rose petal, sandalwood, oranfe peel, chamomile, petitgrain and ginger.

Ingredients: White Horehound and Peppermint Leaf Infusion, Balm Herb, Rose Petal and Lavender Flower Infusion, Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Fine Sea Salt, Organic Orange Peel Decoction, Patchouli Oil, Petitgrain Oil, Pimento Berry Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Ginger Oil, Plantain Vinegar Gel, Perfume, Methyl Ionone, Eugenol, *Limonene, Linalool, Chlorophyllin, Methylparaben. * Occurs naturally in essential oils

Review: Thick, green and mossy. Doubles as a bubble bath. Very burnt-patchouli/clove scented; if you like the Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bar, you’ll probably like Supertramp. Scent lingers on the skin for hours after showering. I like it, but not quite as much as Grass.

Lush Kitchen description: An earthy, mystical shower gel that smells like wandering through tall dark pine trees in an enchanted forest over a cool soft carpet of moss. With horehound to cleanse the skin, peppermint to add a warming, fresh top note and the sensual, floral scents of lavender and rose.

So Supertramp has all of these notes. Its a multi layered spa type of scent.

The Supertramp shower gel is a dark green,

thick gel that is calming and soothing.

I woukd say that its one of the best green, earthy shower gels that Lush has made, with the exception of Tramp.

Its a unisex scent that would be liked by both men and women.

The Supertramp in this Lush Kitchen Subscription box is the regular 250g Medium size.

I would recommend and would buy another one if i had the chance.

Heres a video i recorded of the Supertramp shower gel https://youtu.be/3KzOaX_lBlw

Candy Cane toothpaste jelly

4 out of 5 rating. See my demo and review of it.

I’ve tried many Lush toothy tabs, mouthwash tabs and even regular toothpastes in a tube from their sister company B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful. And this is my favorite tooth product.

It’s creamy, sweet and minty just like a real candy cane. Its a tiny bit thinner than a regular toothpaste but only a bit.

As i show in my video its easy to get some on your toothbrush.

It gives that minty ‘oooh’ feeling when you breath in. It isnt gritty and therefore is good as a sensitive teeth tootbpaste. It has no fluoride, and i explain the benefits of this in my video.

If your on the fence i would suggest you get one of these. You wont be disappointed.

Dirty scrub

5 out of 5 rating See my sink demo vodeo beñow.

Lush has introduced 350+ new products at their NEW Megastore at the Liverpool SPA store. This body scrub is one of these exclusive products.

The Lush Labs decided to sell some of the exclusive products that were at this store online for a limited time only. So i bought two scrubs. Dirty and Easy Peeler.

Lush designed the Dirty scrub to look just like a kitchen sponge. I love that! The yellow side is smooth and the green side is a little rougher.

These are so much better than the sugar scrub domes that lush used to make. Those older style scrubs become so hard and scratchy that using them more than a couple times becomes a challenge. Not so with this scrub.

The sugar seems to be mixed in with the cocoa butter mixture, not just sitting on the top layer.

This Dirty scrub was made with the ‘Dirty’ fragrance. Lush has made many things in their clasdic Dirty fragranxe. The fragrance is made with herbs, lemon, mint. It smells natural, earthy, herbal, lemony and minty.

The scrub bar doesnt fall apart or become a mess after one use, it stays the same and so i just kerp it in my soap dish or on top of a black pot lid.

It exfoliates my rough, dry dead skin and then moisturizes the skin thats left with moisturizing cocoa butter.

I love it! I would rate this a 5 out of 5.

Heres a videp i recorded of me using it

Snowman Bomb Bomb

4 out of 5 rating

Dont look now but Lush has actually made a minty bath product.

This doesnt happen very often.

This two piece Snowman Bomb bomb is two baths worth if you want to use each of the two pieces for one bath, or you can use both pieces in one go!

It’s made with spearmint in particular. I was wary of this bomb because Sometimes mint can irritate my skin or make it red. I needn’t have worried though becaise i experienced nothing but loveliness, no irritation.

Its not got any eucalyptus in it like Outback mate or christingle.

Its a fast fizzer, fizzes away very quickly but its a big bomb so it takes a little while. I ised both pieces for my bath and this demo.

I like this. I would buy another one.

See my tub demo video below

Magic Crystals

i would rate this a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a moisturizing, scrub cleanser.

Initially i rated it a 5 out of 5 but i will say that because of what a couple of my followers have stated, it’s best not to get this in sensitive areas as it can burn/sting quite a bit.

So because of that i changed my rating to 4 out of 5.

It’s still a great above average product.

Initially i thought this was some kind of scrubby shower soap, like a scrubbe smoothie. But upon using it in my demo i discovered that its not meant to wash with.

One washes first then uses this after rinsing your soap or shower gel off. Then you rinse it off. Its conditioning. Its very conditioning compared to rub rub rub.

This isnt a fine exfoliation, its a coarser consistency, so just fyi that as i know some of you don’t like a coarse scrub.

here is a video i recorded where i demo how to use it.

It diesnt smell particularly herbal considering there is a good amount of sage in here. I only smell mint. Its not extremely sweet.

Magic needn’t only be cast with a flick of a wand or a twitch of a nose, magic can come in a tub in the bathroom.

Hop in a hot shower and let the warm water dance across your skin before scooping out a handful of this scrub.

Warming and stimulating aniseed oil accompanies fine sea salt and Epsom salts to brighten, buff and polish skin while fresh rosemary and sage infusions cleanse and tone. Rinse off and let menthol crystals, peppermint and spearmint oils to leave cool tingles up and down your skin like the remnants of magic recently cast.

Mint bubble brush

Mint bubble brush is one of three new ‘bubble brush’ design type of re-usable bubble bars from Lush Cosmetics.

Lush has come out with five new re-usable bubble bars, three of them being in the bubble brush type. Mint is the blue one. Its got a minty scent that isnt too sweet. In fact i i wish it were a *bit* more sweet. Its the scent of their ‘Freeze’ shower gel.

Its not quite like Christingle body conditioner. Mint bubble brush isnt that sweet. Its the scent of their ‘Freeze’ shower gel.

I love the deep blue hue one can attain with this bubble bar. Its tun to drip blotches of blue on the bubbles. And it’s fun to paint the bubbles as i show in the video.

I enjoy combining colors, as those of you who have seen my bath cocktails know. I often like to create gradients or ombre effects with different bath products.

Well these new Lush bubble bars lend themselves well to this kind of blending, as ive tried to show below.

I think these new bubble brush bars are quite fun. I like that the three primary colors are represented. I would give these bubble brush bars a 4 out of 5. While i don’t particularly like the re-usable bubble bars as much as the regular lush bubble bars, these are fun because you can use them in different ways. I would buy another one of each color. But it’s not one i would stock up on.

World Piece


Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Pine Oil (Pinus), Sweetie Oil (Citrus grandis), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Cypress Oil (Cupressus sempervirens), Perfume, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 42045.


Minty mint! Sweet mint. Very refreshing on a hot day. And the water turns a gorgeous deep turquoise blue.

Lush times 2003 Description: Perhaps most of us wonder if there’s anything we can do to help bring about world peace. If we’re not world leaders or diplomats or international peace keepers then a good way to start would be to be pleasant to everyone we meet, well behaved on the roads, polite and considerate to our friends and families and kind to complete strangers. Scale it up a bit and we’re there! ‘What’s that got to do with a Bath Ballistic?’ you may ask. It’s like this. The World Piece is made with pine oil from Russia for courage and constancy and peppermint, symbol of friendship and love, from the USA. We have sweetie oil, from an Israeli grapefruit bred to remove sourness, mixed with a secret perfume from the edges of the Arabian Sahara Kenyan cypress oil is said to soothe anger and calm down irritable people who won’t stop talking and start listening. Use them yourselves and send them to people who have a direct influence on ending conflicts. (Just be careful not to label the package ‘Bath Product’ not ‘ballistic’ or ‘bomb’ because that wouldn’t help.

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

Demon in the Shower

I give this a 4.5 out of 5.  It gets a half point taken off because it’s very thin.


This is a minty and spicy shower gel with apple juice added. It smells more minty than anything, but with a spicy, clove note that goes well with the mint.  It’s both cold and hot if that makes sense.  Here’s a link to my sink demo video of this shower gel up close. And more of my review of this shower gel.

Melomint

5 out of 5 rating

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Tartaric acid, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Peppermint oil, Cocamide DEA, Flax seed oil, Cypress Oil, Perfume, Gardenia Extract, Chlorophyll, Color.

My review is from 2006, and i feel the same way about it in 2016.

Okay. I’m so amazed with Melomint bubble bar. And I’m amazed at “Summer” on the uk forum for ever having the patience with us to again and again try to get our collective together to vote for it and (thank heavens) finally having it win this time. It looks like a watermelon…in technicolor. It turns the water a beautiful light red/dark coral color. (I’m taking a pic of the water next bath). It smells like spearmint (not sweet mouthwash-y peppermint). It’s refreshing as all get out when the temperature rises in Summer. And what is up with the little watermelon seeds? Cute! I think it’s darn near perfect, bravo Lush.

It is strong enough of a mint to stand alone, and the water color is so unique for a Lush product that I wouldn’t want to change it. 😀 If you like Lush’s “Ice Hotel” bubble bar you’ll love this I think. It’s the same minty freshness just without the lavender. And the cypress really works here. It helps sort of ground it without even being noticeable. Wow.

LT description: If you like spearmint chewing gum you’ll likely have a weakness for this bubble bar. The mint, cypress and chlorophyll provides relief to tired and aching bodies at the end of a hard day, and with the look and shape of a slice of watermelon, this bubble bar is a beauty.

Marathon

As I crumbled the soft deep orange bar with a paper flag of differing countries embedded in it, I smelled a wonderfully spicy blend of what smelled to me like oranges, peppermint or eucalyptus, and some eastern Indian spices. When I got in the water, this is a bar that I could feel working on my sore muscles in seconds. The smell and the feeling of the bars ingredients reminded me of the now discontinued Lush ballistic “Fizzy O’Therapy”, which had mustard seed oil in it. But Marathon is better. During this bath I wondered if this Marathon bar had mustard oil as well and apparently so. This bar makes a very noticeable difference with regard to sore muscles and being achey. If you’ve just run a Marathon or done any work that makes your muscles achey and sore, Marathon is a great one to have around. It reminds me of the feeling of that old nasty aching muscles rub called “Deep Heat”, not the smell but the way it made your muscles heat up in a very noticeable way? Yep. Marathon smells like…Fizzy O’Therapy ballistic. I can still feel it’s effects and it’s been an hour since I got out of the tub. It’s heating properties keep going even after the bath. Because of attractiveness, bath water color, and mostly the way it works, this bubble bar gets 4 stars from me.

Notes: “Marathon” and “Wiccy Magic Muscles” cinnamon and mint massage bar are a team for sore muscles.

Ice Blue shampoo

 

lushiceblueshampoo_zps25c9bb51

This is very minty.  It wakes you up in the morning to wash hair with this.  It smells nice and strongly of mint.  Lush made a soap called ‘Ice Blue; with the same minty smell.

Lush description:  How much mint can you take in one shampoo? How about an quick blast of spearmint and two different peppermints to perk you up from three directions at once. Mint stimulates your hair follicles and puts a bit of life back into your hair; it wakes up your brain too, so it’s a really excellent morning shampoo for everyone who’s a little bit reluctant to get up and running before noon. It’s brilliant for oily to normal hair that’s a bit flat, dull and dozy now and again. Ice Blue Shampoo was one of the Lush creative team’s first ever best selling, brilliant smelling products; we thought it was time to give it another go.

Ingredients: Water, Perfume, Lactic Acid, Spearmint Oil, Peppermint Oil, Fine sea Salt,

After 8:30


Review: This is nice. I like it more than the other chocolate lush massage bars. It really does smells like peppermint and chocolate. It’s good for rubbing it on your man after a late dinner..

50g 2.75gpb

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate, Synthetic musk,Peppermint Oil, Perfume.

2001 Lush Times description: Still on the the best sellers, the old favourite After 8:30 attracts people with its mint chocolate scent. Often people want to know if it’s edible and while it wont’ do you any harm if you accidentally lick a body part covered in After 8:30, we’d recommend that you use it for what it does best, moisturizing your skin with cocoa butter and stimulating the mind and body with peppermint which was, incidentally, used by the ancient Hebrews in perfumes because of its aphrodisiac properties. It brings a dinner a deux to the perfect conclusion, and massaging your skin with chocolate is so much better for you than eating it.

Maypole soap

This soap is one of my favorites, because of the way it looks and smells.

I like the play on the words Maypole and Maple.

I love the whimsical look of this soap most of all!

The Maple syrup in Maypole goes perfectly with the mint.   The scent is fun, and uplifting.

I cut this cylindrical piece into halves. So it looks like there is a piece of watermelon in my soap dish.  🙂

 lush has made a Maypole Body Lotion for one day only July 24. 

I was told by someone that Another product with this scent is the Lush Christmas ‘Salt and Peppermint bark’ body scrub, but I’ve not verified this. 

See what this looks like up close and what the lush catalog says about it in my 3 minute video here
