Quinquireme of Ninevah


Ingredients: vegetable soap, water, propylene glycol, coconut, sodium stearate, sodium lauryl sulphate, titanium dioxide, perfume, orange oil, benzoin, vanilla absolute

Review: QofN was the sort of precursor to the present ‘I Should Coco” soap by Lush. The difference is that this doesn’t have the scratchy, exfoliating dessicated coconut. This is a creamy soap that smells more of Lushious coconut than I Should Coco soap in my opinion. I’m not cazy about coconut, there are times when I hate coconut. So I’m picky about coconut scented products. But this Quinquireme of Ninevah soap adds oranfe which makes it more complex and lovely. is one I do indeed like to use. Not bad, being that it’s a coconut soap. I would think the majority of people would find this to be a 4 star soap.

Lush Times description: Q of N is a creamy, smooth cocnut scented soap made in 35 kg block with two rope handles so it can be carried with dignity to its destination within Lush shops. Inspired by the poem by John Masefield, in which he describes the Quinquereme’s cargo of precious oils and spices. Some of which we used in the soap’s coconut based perfume. We’ll cut you a 100 g slice from one of these precious cargoes to bring a hint of the exotic Middle East of times gone by to your very own wash basin.

Sunnyside Up

Coconut, pineapple, orange, vetivert

Let this sudsy version wobble over your body in the shower and feel the refreshing, toning and brightening effects of fresh pineapple infusion. If ever there was a shower jelly that smelled good enough to eat, it’s this one.

Coco Loco Body Spray

3 out of 5 rating

See my 3 minute description, demo & review video below.

Coco Loca is in the same scent family as Lush Big Calm shower jelly, Lush Big Calm body lotion, Big Calm solid perfume, Lush Yellow Submarine bath bomb, and Coco Loco solid shower oil.

Its made with orange oil, coriander, and lemon grass oil. The scent is a tropical pineapple and coconut smell.

When i first sprayed this on my arm once i did not smell anything remotely coconutty nor pineappleish. I was about to give this body spray a 2 out of 5 rating, meaning i wouldnt recommended…when i tried it again on my other arm, tbis time spraying two sprays instead of one and i waited until it wad tptally dry which was 15 minutes later. i sniffed my arm and finally! I was able to smell that tropical scent i remember so well and enjoy in the Big Calm jelly!

So tge key to this particular body spray is to wait until its totally dry before you make a decision.

That said, its not as strong of a scent as some of the other body sprays ive reviewed.

But its slightly swret and smells like a pina colada. So.i raisedy initial rating of this body spray to a 3 out of 5 rating. Meaning i would recommend it, but there are many othrt body sprays that i would choose over Coco Loco.

drink.

Need a mini vacation? Mist on a little Coco Loco for a fresh breeze of palm trees, sandy beaches and total relaxation. Brazilian orange, coriander and lemongrass oils give lightness to the creamy coconut base of this perfume, evoking memories of your perfect tropical getaway. This spritzer is just as deliciously scented as the shower oil of the same name, so layer on the scent after the shower to make the vacation vibes last a little longer.” Lush

Roller body spray

5 out of 5 rating

See my 3 minute drmo and review video below

Roller bath bomb is my favorite Lush bomb for looks and scent. I love everything in this scent family. I love the caramelly strawberry notes of this scent. Its very sweet and very strong when first sprayed. So keep in mind if you dont like sweet scents you might not enjoy roller spray.

As i show in the video i sprayed 1 1/2 sprays and as soon as it dries down it lessens in strength but not as much asany body sprays do. Roller stays pretty true to how it smells in the bottle. It smells the ssme on my skin. I only had to spray this 2-3 times during the day for it to last all day so its fairly strong comparatively speaking.

Scent Description: Within this delectable strawberry and cream scent swims a harmonious mingling of geranium, fresh Brazilian orange and sweet tonka absolute.

You’ll love this if you like:
– Bold geranium florals.
– Magic Mushroom bubble bar or Yummy Mummy shower gel.
– Hitting the strawberry fields for some wholesome berry picking.

Love Locket Amazeball 2020

5 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute tub demo video belo

This year Lush brought back the popular Valentine love locket bath bomb. However this year both the design and the scent are different.

This year lush designed the love locket in the new ‘Amazeball’ design, which is a hollowed out design filled with a bath bomb top, and miniature, multi colored bath bombs inside the hollowed out area.

Also, this year Lush made it in the popular ‘Yummy Mummy’ shower gel scent. Its a caremelly strawberry scent made with strawberry, orange oil, and tonka bean.

My favorite Lush exclusive ‘Roller’ bath bomb is in this scent too.

The Love Locket is a bit larger than regular lush bath bombs.

Primarily pink with blue accents, the tiny heart-shaped bath bombs inside are blue, yellow, green and pink.

The end result is a mauve colored, sparkly water that smells like strawberry.

“Don’t lock your love away, release it in a spectacle of strawberry-scented swirls. This amazeball is the key to a great bath, so unlock your heart’s true potential with a good soak in the tub. Full to the brim with tiny bath bomb hearts, you’re sure to be all a flutter thanks to uplifting orange and cosy tonka.

You’ll love this if you like:
– Super soaks, bright colours and a heart full of giddy joy.
 Strawberries and Cream bath bomb or  D’Fluff shaving soap.
– Treating yourself or the ones you care for to a big, blissful bath.

Benefits:
– Tonka absolute has a comforting sweet fragrance, adding a snuggly embrace of warmth to this strawberry-scented treat.
– The uplifting note of Brazilian orange oil adds a drop of sunshine to your bath, as well as boosting your mood.
– The addition of cornflour ensures that this bath bomb is extra softening for the skin.

How to use: Bust the lock off this amazeball by removing the stopper and shake as many of the little bath bombs into the tub as your heart desires, allowing them to tumble in and fizz away. Feel free to indulge with the whole thing at once, or keep the shell for another time. Why not put a love note inside for that special someone to find as they soak?”

Chris the Camel

5 out 5 rating

See my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below

This camel carries dates, just like he would in the middle east. Date syrup is one of the ingrdients in this yummy gingerbreadish, hot toddyish scented bath bomb for Christmas 2019.

Its got gold stars all over it which i love looking at as they float by in the water.

Chris looks remind me of a gingerbread cookie. I was surprised to see dark blue green and purple coming out of him in the water. What a beautiful and different color in a Lush bath bomb. I can totally appreciate that its such a different color for a Lush bath bomb.

As you can see in the video the three colors join to make an peridot colored water with golden sparkle. 😍

Jingle Bells

5 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo video below.

The Jingle Bells bath bomb is new for Christmas 2019.

It’s made with the ‘Milky Bar’ soap and Milky Bar bubble bar scent. The scent is made with patchouli and orange oil. Its a comforting scent, like a warm blanket or fresh sheets.

It looks like a silver christmas bell, and it makes a jingly sound as well due to some salt crystals inside.

Initially i thought it was just a white colored bomb which would make white water.

Boy was i wrong! Soon i began to see a stripe of blue peek out.

Soon i began to see stark red and deep blue swirl about from the bomb! So pretty. What a surprise.

The blue and red continued to come out and filled the tub with gorgeous color.

The scent is nice and strong. Perfuming my skin in its wonderful fragrance.

Soon the water started to turn purple as the two colors combined.

There is no sparkle nor glitter.

I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this bath bomb.

Fireball

4 out of 5 rating. See my 2 minute tub demo below.

This is a beautifully designed bath bomb with vibrant yellow, orange and red colors. Looks just like a fireball! Its also got a bit of gold glitter on the red part.

This bomb was made with orange oil, ginger, and mustard powder so its nice and warming on a cool winter’s night.

It was madecin the popular Lush ‘Cinders’ scent

Its both a fast, noisy fizzer And a slow, quiet melty fizzer. Plus its got popping cansy for that ‘crackling cinders in a fireplace’ sound.

The scent is nice, medium strong. If the scent were stronger i woukd give this a 5 out of 5 rating.

The end result is a bright orange water with just a very small bit of gold glitter in the water. Its not what i would call glittery water.

Fly Me To The Moon

5 out of 5 rating. See my tub demo video below to see it in action!

I’m so intrigued by these new Lush Christmas bath bombs called Amazeballs. ‘Holly Golightly‘ (green), ‘Snow Fairy‘ (pink), ‘Fly Me To the Moon’ (platinum ufo), and ‘Don’t Let the Bells End’ (yellow).

It was hard to decide which one i wanted to use (and demo) first. I chose Fly Me To the Moon….since i live in New Mexico after all. 😉 When you take the top off its got purple bubble bar/bomb powder mixture inside.its scent is similar to ‘Nevermind the Ballistics’ from Christmas 2017. Its made with lime, orange and frankincense.

I like the platinum shimmer on the outside of it.

I also like the purple bath bomb/bubble bar combo powder inside that is partcular to Fly Me to the Moon.

You can either sprinkle the powder under running water and it will become frothy or you can put the whole rhing in the tub with the powder inside of it.

Its a slow, foamy fizzer. Once it starts dissolving It turns into something that looks like dessert. Like vanilla blackberry ice cream.

It also has glitter in ghe water.

I like everything about this bomb. The design. The innovation. The colors, and the scent. And the performance.

Happy shower gel

5 out of 5 rating. See my demo, description & review video below.

Happy

One of two new shower gels this Christmas.

This smells like fruity bubblegum. Thats exactly what it smells like to me. I was surprised. Its made with lemon oil, orange oil and neroli oil. It also has wLnut leaf and dandelion root infusion.

Its a blue-green, medium thick gel with lots of multi colored shimmer.

Because of the ingredients i expected this to smell more citrussy, but its sweeter than i expected.

If you like fruity bubblegum you’ll like this shower gel.

Here’s a special shaped one that was available in a Christmas 2006 gift set.

The Big Banana

3.5 out of 5 rating. See my demo and review video below.

This has its own new scent which is made with almond essential oil, ylang ylang flower oil, orange oil, clove bud oil, and mashed banana. Along with shea butter and other skin moisturizing goodies to add the proper amount of slip for a massage.

I am living for the various fruit shaped products that Lush have been making and selling exclusively since Sept 2018

The Big Banana has a nice smell. It doesnt smell like banana runts candy. Its a light, more natural banana scent.

The consistency is oily.

Its not like sympathy for the skin in scent which is more earthy imo.

here is my video i recorded for you which helps explain the scent and shows the consistency.

Sugar Plum Fairy scrub

This is a 5 out of 5 product.

Its purple. Its cute. It smells like plums. It moisturizes my dry skin.

I am so enamored with this scrub. To put all your questions to rest. No. When i asked about the scent of the scrub the first time, someone thought i meant the lushlabs scrub i was holding in my other hand, so they told me plum rain, which it is. But THIS scrub here, which is what i was asking about, is NOT plum rain, its sugar plum scented. So that’s where all the confusion came. I apologize. I’ll change it everywhere that i have this erroneous info. 👍😘❤️

Typically i dont like the non-potted scrubs from Lush because they seem to dry out too quickly, making it eventually too scratchy to use on my skin.

Not so with this scrub. Its got seemingly double the regular amount of cocoa butter than others of its kind, making it a bit wetter.

This isn’t too big nor too small, it seems like just the right size to be able to use it up without it sitting around gettibg dry and scratchy.

Initially the dark color was worrisome but i didnt have to worry about any staining. There was none to be had.

Its got coarser exfoliating grains of sugar.

Here’s a close up demo video and review i recorded for you of the sctub on my arm at tge sink.

It was made with the same scent as the lip scrub of the same name.

Eyeball

I have two Eyeball bath bombs. see my recorded tub demo below

One i got from a Lush store. And one i got from Lush Uk mail order site lush.co.uk

Ive had the one i got from a Lush store in the uk on Sept 22 for two weeks. To me it didnt smell that exciting. In fact, it almost smelled sort of blah with maybe some lavender.

However, im SO glad i decided to order another one from mail order. Because THAT one was an entirely different story scent-wise.

Oh my GOD the gorgeousness of this pretty and yummy scent….this smells so familiar.

I looked it up on thesite to see look at the ingredients. As i read the ingredients on the site it dawned on me….this Eyeball bath bomb has the Lush SOFTY bath bomb scent!!!! YES. Thank you so much Lush.

The irony of this gorey eyeball having the pretty ‘Softy’ scent is wonderful. Lush also made a bubnle bar one Christmas called Hedgehog, with that same softy scent.

This scent is made with orange oil, lavender, ylang ylang and rose. Basically everything that is good-put together in one bomb.

Its both ‘pretty’ and ‘yummy’. I can smell the ylang ylang and the rose primarily, which is a GORGEOUS combination in itself. But then comes the wafting of the orange oil note to give it that ‘Lushious, sweet, fruit’ note. Then, comes the bright herbal pop of lavender to lift the whole combination up.

Heavenly. One must absolutely have a fresh one from mail order, otherwise youre in danger of getting a blah one, or God forbid, the even more rare one that smells like furniture cleaner, which i have had in the past as well.

A good, very fresh one is a 5 out of 5 rating.

An older one thats been sitting in the store for some days can be a 2 out of 5.

I pray you get a great one folks, its heavenly.

Here is a tub demo video i recorded for you.

These products below were made in the same blend.

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.
