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.

Pleasure Dough

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate,Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamide DEA, Rose Petals (Rosa centifolia), Perfume, Lavender Flowers, (Lavendula officinalis), Peppermint Leaves (Mentha piperita). Lavender Oil, Orange Blossom Absolute, Rose Absolute.

Lush description: Pleasure Dough is the Bubble Bar Slice for days when you have plenty of time to yourself so you can take a long, luxurious bath and enjoy every second of it. (I wish.) OK then, it’s also for when you’d love to have ages for a bath but you might as well get as much pleasure out of your five minutes as possible. Made to the personal private recipe of Ninan de Lenclos, legendary courtesan from the time of Louis XIV (someone that knew more than most about the art of pleasure), it contains flower petals and oils to stimulate the senses and to soften the skin. Do enjoy it.

 

I think this smells somewhat Lush Dream Cream body lotion that Lush sell in stores. Initially i was waiting for a typical flowery or sweet bubble bar scent. But this is the kind of therapuetic calming lavender scent that posh spas would use. In the water it’s very soothing and makes the skin soft. Imagine bathing in a soothing blend of Rose Petals, Lavender Flowers, Peppermint Leaves Lavender Oil, Orange Blossom Absolute and Rose Absolute. If you don’t like bits in your bath though be sure to put this in a nylon or seive to keep the petals and bits of herbs contained. This bubble bar makes me say “Ahhhh” at the end of a hard day and I find this to be extra good in the summer when it’s hot, muggy and uncomfortable. Indeed, it feels like the spa of courtesans in a bar.

Too Drunk

The Lush Kitchen will be remaking these April 4  2016

Ingredients; Sodium Bicarbonate , Citric Acid , Dipropylene Glycol , Perfume , Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita) , Tagetes Oil (Tagetes minuta) , Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus Aurantium dulcis) , Fennel Oil (Foeniculum vulgare) , *Citronellol , *Limonene , *Linalool , Chocolate Bean

Lush 2008 description; Too Drunk is not its full name. Its inspiration was a song by the Dead Kennedys, but specifically the version by Nouvelle Vague played and sung in a groovy 60s giggly style by the cool French group with an extraordinary collection of percussion instruments. Anyway, back to the Emotibomb. This is for the day after you got too drunk It has essential oils of peppermint, marigold, fennel and reviving sweet orange to refresh you, wake you up gently, soothe a sore head and slowly bring you back to life. Just stick one in the shower, turn on the water and stand there – or sit if you can`t manage the vertical – getting drenched until it all feels a bit better. Of course, you don`t have to have a hangover to use one. (At Lush Times Towers, we don`t bother with hangovers. Too busy.) Shower with one of these when you`re already feeling okay and wow! It really gets you grooving.

This was nice, a nice change. I love that Lush has made something for folks who don’t have tubs. Alot of devoted lushies have been waiting for something they can use in the shower. For me the Emotibomb is great for an aromatherapy shower.

How to Use Emotibombs

Just when you thought that Lush had come up with every possible variation, we managed to invent yet another fascinating way to have fun in the bathroom. Mo, who invented the Bath Bomb and the Shampoo Bar, felt rather sorry for people who were missing out on the delights of a Bath Ballistic’s fragrant fizziness. People who only have showers, for example. One of the joys of a Ballistic bath is the way that they fill the bathroom with scent and if you leave the door open they’ll fill up the whole house. The beautiful, natural perfumes which are released when the water hits the bomb, change your mood as you inhale them so Mo decided that shower owners really ought to experience the same delights.
Bring on the Emotibomb.

Here’s what you do. Put it on the floor of your shower and as the warm water hits your Emotibomb, it fizzes up into the atmosphere, surrounding you in a cloud of fragrant steam. Everyone’s first question has been this, “But doesn’t it just go straight down the plughole?” Of course it does go down the plughole eventually, but doesn’t everything in life? While you’re in the shower, it lasts long enough to transform your daily cleaning into a magical mist. Just like our Bath Ballistics, you’ve got to choose the right one for the right occasion. We’re starting with four Emotibombs, one to wake you up, one to get you ready to sleep, one hangover cure and one that is called Sex in the Shower. You can guess what that one’s. Probably. Whether you take showers because you prefer them, you live in a drought zone or you’re permanently in a hurry, we reckon you are going to love the way that Emotibombs make them ever so much more exciting. Grab some, this up nice and fresh and tell us what you think.

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,

Christingle

Intergalactic

See the 3 minute video (below) i made of this stupefying color of water.


Lush description:  Blast off into Funky-This awesome mix will have you hooked on a feeling.  Be the guardian of a galaxy as it explodes in your bath.

5 out of 5 rating.  This is minty smelling, and the dark blue color of the water, and the sparkliness of the water makes my bath look like a galaxy.  A bath bomb can’t get any better than this.

 

This has popping candy, peppermint oil, grapefruit oil, cedarwood oil, and vetivers oil.

Here’s a pic i took of Intergalactic in the tub.
 

Here’s a link to a video i made of the Intergalactic in the water, GORGEOUS shimmer at the very end 🙂
