Somewhere Over the Rainbow bath bomb

5 out of 5 rating

See my demo video below

This is a beautiful, limited edition bath bomb from Lush Oxford Street in the UK.  It shares it’s scent with the Easter time Lush soap of the same name.  I love it, it’s an innocent floral with a tad of a citrus note.  Rose oil, neroli oil and orange oil.

 

file-sep-25-5-11-53-pm

This is a slow fizzing bath bomb, which i love, and which gives it the time it needs to unfurl the gorgeous rainbow of colors in the tub.

The scent is medium strong, no complaints there.  It stays on the skin a decent amount of time.

It’s not a gender-neutral scent, meaning it’s highly floral, but in a soft, pretty way.

Here are some photos I took, along with a demo and review video below.

Karma shower gel

Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Perfume, Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Lavendin Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Pine Oil (Pinus), Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogan flexuosus), Elemi Oil (Canarium commune), Sodium Chloride, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides).

This is a shower gel with the Lush “Karma” scent of orange, patchouli and pine. This was invented when Lush Hilary made only five bottles for a special raffle on the Lush UK forum for forum members only. More recently, in the Lush Kitchen, Karma shower gel was remade for a limited time.

Karma shower gel is a much better way to get the Karma scent on your bod than say, the soap, except, it’s too drying on my skin.  It’s also possible to wash your hair with it or even use it as a bath foam. It’s easier to lather than the Karma soap. It’s thick and gelatinous. And a little goes a long way on a shower pouff, vs. the soap gets smaller and disappears much quicker oz for oz.  The Karma fragrance stays on the skin longer than other lush shower gels too! 😀 I give this a 2.5-3.0 out of 5 rating.

Here’s a video demo i made of this shower gel close up

 

Somewhere Over the Rainbow soap

Troubles melt like ice in the hot sun when you lather up with this uplifting neroli soap. Let its rich and fruity perfume put your mood on cloud 9 and pop you back on your feet. Sunny citrus oils like mandarin and neroli tone and brighten the skin and leave you feeling fresh and fragrant. A dash of Turkish rose keeps things sweet and adds a flirty floral note to this sunny sudser.

Wonder Woohoo

This beautiful bubble bar has the scent of Lush ‘Sun’ perfume, as well as “sun’ bath oil at Oxford Street store.

For wonder mamas everywhere!
This sparkling tiara crumbles up under running water for a golden, bubbling bath. You may recognize the fresh, uplifting Brazilian orange and sandalwood oil scent from our best-selling Gorilla Perfume, The Sun. This bar was created for Mum to channel her inner super heroine, and is not only covered in sparkles but includes a gold glimmer luster throughout the bubble bar mix, creating a swirling, luminous effect in the water. Sink in and revel in sunshine!

Lover Lamp

Here’s my demo video below of Lover Lamp Valentine’s Day 2016 bath bomb in the bath tub

Look, this might be coming on too strong, but it seems like you should get the hots for Fair Trade organic cocoa butter. Melting into an amorous embrace of softening water, butter hearts coat skin in heavenly moisture. In a whirl of chocolate orange notes, Fair Trade vanilla absolute and Brazilian orange oil whisper sweet nothings that lift your mood. Their scent lingers in your mind and on your skin all day long.

Dream On

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis), Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia), Chamomile Oil (Anthemis nobilis), Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida), *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume, Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 18050. * Occurs naturally in essential oils.

Review: This is a smaller bomb. It smells like Lush “Dream Cream” body lotion, it’s soothing and calming to the body and the mind, because of the rose, chamomile and Lavender oil. Helps one sleep too.

Description: Chamomile & essential oils to calm seriously distressed skin and tempers.

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?

Whitewash smoothie

see my demo video on the bottom this page.
File Dec 31, 2 51 51 PM

LushWhitewashOrangeSmoothieReview: This is the Queen of smoothies in alot of old time Lushies opinions, mine included. It has the same scent as Lush’s “Floating Island” bath melt. vaguely lemony with a bit of sandalwood. It looks like plumbers putty, but the consistency is ohhhh… (:-)…soooo rich. If you took a tub of whipped (not block style) cream cheese and dunked your hand into it, that’s what the consistency of White Wash smoothie is. And then after you put this glob on your bod, you realize that it starts slowly melting at body temperature and it becomes a smoothe, melting, creamy mass of hedonistic goodness.

Notes: Lush also made a Whitewash smoothie with orange oil instead of lemon oil. The Lush purists love the lemon and oil original version more, and I love the lemon version too, but I must admit to liking the orange version more, as naturally I would.
Here’s a demo video i made of Whitewash smoothie and Gumback smoothie.

Here’s a video demo i made of this smoothie

Johnny Appleseed

See my demo video below.

It has a great apple scent!

We don’t want to put ideas in your head, so we’ll just plant a seed. Why not pop this fruity green treat in the bath? An apple a day will send troubles away as you sow uplifting neroli, bright lemon and Brazilian orange oils into the water. Make it the apple of your eye.

 

Melt warning: this product is made with ingredients which allow it to soften at  body temperature, and so it prefers not to be posted to hot, sunny climates.

Icing on the Cake smoothie rhoulade

3.5oz $12.95
Naked and self-preserving, The Icing On The
Cake is an innovative take on the shower
smoothie! This soft soap is made with a
decoction of stimulating lemon, lime, and
orange peels and blended with soothing
almond milk and softening soya cream,

cocoa butter, and almond oil.

Here’s a demo video i made using this and my rating of it.

Passion Fruit lip balm

And exotic and energetic balm that glides on for fruity shine.  This lip balm has a thinner, light feel and a good taste and some shine.  I need a bit more moisturization in my lip balm, but this is not bad. If you don’t like a thick lip balm than this might be for you.  It’s not a lip tint so it won’t leave any orange color on your lips, just shine.

Buche De Noel

4 out of 5 rating

Buche

This is a facial cleaner scrub, a limited edition for Christmas. Though most people like the “Let the Good Times Roll”, Buche De Noel is much more interesting and is more appropriate for my kind of skin.  It’s more moisturizing then LTGTR.  It is chock full of various goodies; Almonds, oranges, cranberries, brandy, cedarwood.  It has a holiday kind of vibe to it.  It’s a coarser faical cleanser than other Lush facial cleansers like let the good times roll, herbalism and angel’s delight. I liek the chunkiness of it.  It’s perfect for my skin.

Ingredients: Ground Almonds (Prunus dulcis), Kaolin, Glycerine, Fresh Satsumas (Citrus reticulata), Dried Cranberries (Vaccinium macrocarpon), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao), Brandy, Almond Essential Oil (Prunus dulcis), Vetivert Oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Cedarwood Oil (Juniperus virginiana), *Linalool, *Cinnamal, Perfume, Nori Seaweed (Algae), Candy Pine Tree

*Occurs naturally in essential oils

Lush Times: Buche de Noel was around last Christmas, but it went by the name of Santa’s Rice Porridge. It’s back this year with a few tweaks; it’s still fresh and preservative-free, but it’s a fresh cleanser now. We make it like a nutritious pudding with a twist.

Uluru

Video of this in the tub below.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Atlantic Sea Salt (Sodium chloride), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Desert Rosewood Oil (Aniba rosaeordoro), Lemon Myrtle Oil (Myrtus communis), Eastern Sandalwood Oil (Santalum album), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Colour 18050.

Review: This is sexy, incense-y, citrus scent. Uluru has many layers to it’s beauty. It’s feminine, citrussy and bright smelling, then you notice the water is bright pink, then you notice swirls of orange and these two swirling colors mix to form a lovely deep coral colored water.

There’s also the sensual smell of the rose wood (somewhat similar to sandalwood) that wafts up to your nose and makes me say “Mmmm…”. Nice layers to this scent, hence, a wildly popular ballistic in it’s day. I like the color, it’s an original color like not other ballistic Lush has made.

Lush Times 2004 description: For sheer, breathtaking beauty you’d be hard pressed to beat an Australian desert sunset, with wild pinks and oranges filling the sky as the sun sets over the raw landscape.Attempting to capture this beauty in a Bath Ballistic is something that only the most imaginative (or nutty) of people would attempt. Fortunately, one Mo Constantine is that woman! While her lad was off on his gap year travels in Australia, Mo made the Uluru inspired by a photograph in a book he sent home. It’s taken a while to get the Ayers Rock perfected as we wanted the exact fragrance to match the wild orange and pink colours. Eventually (and it’s worth the wait, believe us) we arrived at the ideal combination of Australian sandalwood and desert rosewood oils, with lemon myrtle, orange and a bunch of unusual (secret) fragrances to capture the feeling we wanted. Close your eyes and imagine the calming, soothing but uplifting feeling of watching the sun set over the desert; now imagine that recreated in the bath! Those with a lot of imagnation will now want to be buying a few Ayers Rocks to experience the feeling. Those with not much had better buy a few to see what we mean.

Yoga Bomb

see my tub demo video below 😊

This is quite lovely in the tub, having many colors like a rainbow, ultimately turning the bath a golden hue.

Lush catalog description:  Take it Slow.Find sanctuary in slow, unfurling layers of deeply relaxing olibanum and ho wood.cassie absolute, olibanum, ho wood oil, sandalwood, shimmer lustre.

3.75 gap / $5.65

Here’s a video i made of the Yoga Bomb in the tub

I love the meditative scent, the rainbow of colors and the golden shimmer in the water. I would buy more than one of these, so i would rate this bath bomb a 5 out of 5 rating.


Heñata

Four out of 5 stars.  See my video of it in the tub below, it’s so cute.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Pink Soap Paper, Sicilian Mandarin Oil, Tangerine Oil, Bergamot Oil, Cornflowers, Marigold Petals, Red Rose Petals, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Gardenia Extract, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal, Benzyl Alcohol, Butylphenyl, Methylpropional, *Limonene, *Linalool, Colour 19140:1, Colour 15510, Green Glitter

Review:  I love this bath bomb.  It’s so cute, and it smells very orange-y, yummy with orange, tangerine and bergamot.

Lush Times: Smash your Henata against the side of your bath for an explosion of wonderful surprises – a mini ballistic egg, petals, a blooming big bunch of soap paper flowers and a shower of green glitter. Along with her cargo of goodies, she carries a lovely fragrance full of sunny citrus oils like Sicilian mandarin, tangerine and bergamot. Use one first thing in the morning to put a Spring in your step.

The Happy Pill

Video below

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid,Perfume, Olive Oil, Hemp Oil , Grapefruit Oil, Bergamot Oil, Frankincense Oil , Lemon Oil , Orange Flower Absolute, Mandarin Oil.

 

Review: This is quite simply, the best ballistic I’ve ever tried from Lush If I’m not mistaken. I love the combo of the two Lush products together.  Lush doesn’t do this combining very often.  Lush “Fun with a twist” fun bar comes to mind.

This bath bomb is a slooooow fizzer which is nice because it lasts the whole bath. And it’s more of a foamer than a fizzer.

The combination of the lovely orange “The Olive Branch” scented side, and the sunny yellow “Happy Hippy” grapefruit scented side is a FABULOUS scent.

It was actually softening to my skin. I dont’ know, not softening in a “Butterball” way, but in a “bicarbonate” way. Absolutely lovely.

The scent stayed on my skin through the next day.

Noriko with Lush had created this one.

 

2006 Lush Times description: New shape, new concept, two of our favorite fragrances combined by Noriko to bring a bit of sunshine to gloomy days. Pop a Happy Pill to cheer yourself up, but pop it in the bath instead of a glass of water. The orange side is the mandarin fragrance of Olive Branch and the yellow side is our gloriously grapefruity Happy Hippy. It’ll keep you going until the spring flowers show their smiling faces.

Fun With a Twist

Lush Kitchen online made this special FUN bar which isn’t made or sold anywhere else in the world.

They made it out of two favorite bath bombs; “Dragon’s Egg” (the orange twist) and “Twilight” (the purple twist).  The citrus with the tonka and lavender is sooo good.  Who knew these two scents would be so wonderful together.  You can also use just the purple piece or just an orange piece to have a purple or orange colored bubble bar.

Dashing Santa

$5.25 See my video of it in the tub below

Lush Description: Make a dash for this moving Santa bath bomb with a cheerful and uplifting scent of satsumas at Christmas. Watch Santa fly about your bath as his golden boots fizz away, releasing toning mandarin oil, bergamot oil and orange flower absolute that help put a spring in your step, too.

Lava Lamp

4 out of 5 rating

See my video demo of this close up in the tub below.

Oh man, this smells SO good.  Triple orange, Lush says.  Fresh, but slightly sweet. If i were a fair skinned person i would be prepared for some discoloration, from the purple olive oil discs.  But the little blue cocoa butter buttons are moisturizing enough to not have to scrub too hard to get it off.

Lush description:  Groovy baby!  Bobbing orbs and a triple whammy of orange takes your senses back in time.

Orange flower absolute, tangerine oil, mandarin orange oil, fair trade cocoa butter.

 

 

Here’s a video i made of the Lava Lamp in the tub, it’s quite cool looking.
