Sakura

3 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo video below

Mimosa in the moonlight. I knew this smell right away, I used to walk around these trees at my fathers house that had the fuzzy lavender colored flowers on it and the smell was heavenly. A sweet yet powdery flower the mimosa. It is lavender in color and fuzzy like a soft pink brush. Sometimes it smells like a light melon scent too. Mimosa is what the “Sakura” ballistic is scented with. This has no color in the water.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Sea Salt, Lemon Oil, Mimosa Absolute, Orange Blossom Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Gardenia Extract, FD&C Red No. 4, FD&C Blue No. 1

Lush 2006 description: Sakura is the japanese name for cherry blossom which aptly describes this pretty pale pink ballistic. Sakura is dappled with bursts of pale green that rise up to a bright pink and green layer of exfoliating sea salt at the top of the bomb

This has been one of Lush’s regular year round bath bombs since 2004 or so. And its still sold in stores today.

Its a fast dissolving fizzing type of bath bomb, not a slow, melty, foam typeof bomb. It has a lovely floral scent with blue and pink salt crystals on the top.

There’s one or two more products in this scent family that arent in my group picture.

Figs and Leaves

A whole truckle of Figs and Leaves soap in store from which they cut pieces off for customers to buy.

Yummy. A highly underrated soap as far as conversations amongst Lushies. For a long time this was my favorite soap. I first bought some in my second Lush order a long time ago. And i like it just as much today 20 years later. It smells very different. Feminine and floral but lightly so, fruity from the figs and full of fig seeds. This could be good if your exfoliating or bad if you don’t like bits. Nice creamy lather. That scent though, its the perfect combination of sweet and floral.

LT 2004 Description: Figs and Leaves is a lovely, coffee brown, creamy soap scented with ylang ylang and orange blossom perfumes. Ylang ylang is one of the oils that helps to balance the skin’s oil production; orange blossom absolute is excellent for keeping the skin in good condition. The little specks in Figs and Leaves are the fig seeds from the decoction of nutritious, fresh, organic figs that form the base of this soap. Rub this all over your body to gently exfoliate your skin, make it feel smooth and smell luxuriously of figs and flowers (not leaves)…..

You can see the little dots? They are parts of the figs

Ingredients: Fig Decoction, Aloe Vera, Perfume, Ylang Ylang Oil, Orange Blossom Absolute,

Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Chloride, EDTA, Tetrasodium Editronate, *Benzyl Benzoate, *Linalool. * Occurs naturally in essential oils

I would give this soap a 5 out of 5 rating.

Its more moisturizing on my skin than other Lush soaps.

The scent is near perfect.

Its a classic Lush soap having been in their stores for over 20 years, because its popular.

It isnt the prettiest soap but trust me, if you havent tried it youre missing out. 😊👍🏼

The one scent family product is Lush ‘Dorothy’ bubble bar. Same scent.

Lush 2004 description: It smells like Prince and you can wash your body and hair with it. You can use it as bubble bath too. It’s mostly for blokes, but women will also want it. It has a bright blue label designed by a proper man (Jack, who is replacing Joe in the design department because she’s on maternity leave.) so you can take it to the gym with you without the risk of looking girly.
Here’s a demonstration video i did of Prince shower gel

This smells orangey and earthy at the same time.  It’s not sweet. The gel is very thick.

Here’s a demo video of this shower gel so you can see it up close.

 

Here’s a pic i took of the Prince bubble bar from long ago that had the “Prince” scent

 

 

Happy bubble bar

It’s a gorgeous bar for sure. The fresh ones were bright turqoiuse blue and had golden dust on the one side near the stamped name “Happy”. It looked like verdi gris. This has my vote for prettiest Lush bubble bar ever in the history of Lushdome. Happy bubble bar has a lovely, strong orange scent. And there’s also sandalwood. Now orange with sandalwood. I’ve not heard of that particular combination before I don’t think in any lush products. The sandalwood changes this citrussy wonder. The sandalwood gives it a depth. Who knew? I highly recommend this lovely (scent and looks) bubble bar. It would go with the orangey “The Sicilian” ballistic as they were both out at the same time at one point.

Ingredients: Tangerine Oil ,  Sandalwood Oil , Neroli Oil , Orange Blossom Oil , Perfume, Colour 42090, Gold PowderSodium Bicarbonate, Cream Of Tartar , Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine,Cocoamide DEA,

Times description: Our bright new turquoise blue Bubble Bar Slice is Happy by name and happy by nature, courtesy of a not inconsiderable helping of neroli oil concealed inside its attractive self. Neroli is a terrifyingly expensive essential oil, made from the flowers of the bitter orange tree, which has the ability to make people feel cheery and smile again. We add tangerine and orange blossom oils; they help too plus they are excellent skin conditioners (another reason to smile). Relaxing sandalwood gives a touch of spice to Happy’s fragrance and encourages a sense of well being. Well, what would you have called it?
