Karma bath melt pyramid

30g

Karma scent

Ingredients: Cocoa Butter. Laureth 4, Gold Sparkles, Almond Oil, Perfume, Patchouli Oil , Orange Oil , Lavendin Oil , Pine Oil , Lemongrass Oil , Elemi Oil , Gardenia Extract.

Review: This is a pyramid shaped (the one on the left is a little less pyramid-like LOL), it has gold glitter and smells of Lush’s signature “Karma” scent. This is a wonderful smelling and skin softening melt. It has tns of cocoa butter. You simply put it in the bath water after it’s filled and it melts with the hot water and leaves little trails of beautiful golden glitter. You can also smoosh it up under the running water while the bath is filling up too. It’ll work either way. But beware…it has LOADS of glitter. You will have glitter everywhere (including your friends clothing, your dog and your husband) for a couple of days. I loved this melt and I wish it were still around.

Yuletide 2001 Lush Times description: Fake perfumes are so good these days that city dwellers have almost lost the ability to appreciate real scents what with the synthtic smells of coffee, bread and burgers pumped out to attract us to use their sources. There are some very beautiful synthetic perfumes (and there’s even one in Karma) but we prefer the real thing, perfumes made from flowers just like the great, great, great, great, great grandfather would have done if he hadn’t been too busy diggeing coal. Why? Because we don’t just use them for the scent; we use them for the effect on the mind and body. This is why a Bath Melt scented with Karma is so lovely; it softens and moisturizes your skin as well as scenting it. Try our new little pyramid of perfume in your bath and feel what we mean….

Fresh As

4 out of 5 rating

Fresh As perfume

Whereas i expected to love the more expensive fragrances of the bunch and it turned out i didn’t, i decided to buy Fresh As even though the ingredients didnt necessarily grab me. As irony woukd have it-Fresh As is my favorite of the five.

It smells as if Lush Needles & Pine shower jelly, Lush Guardian of the Forest , and Lush Princess Cottongrass perfume had a baby.

The fragrance of it is light and airy. It smells less like a forest and more like a meadow. Its not earthy its green and airy and gorgeous.

It smells just as beautiful when its wet as when it’s dry.

Welcome to the wilderness. With bracing fir needle absolute and hints of balsamic benzoin resinoid you’ll soon be feeling fresh as…

Revitalising fir and tagetes oils mingle in each vivid spritz to surround you with the bracing draw of nature. If any scent can embody the freshest of forests, snapping sticks underfoot and the warmth of a snugly scarf, then this is it. 

You’ll love this if you like:

– Herbaceous fir.
– Karma perfume.
– Refreshing forest walks.

For a limited time only, 30ml bottles of this perfume will be available to order online. This perfume and the rest of The Florence Collection are also available in 100ml bottles in your nearest perfume library. “

Love Token

4 out of 5 rating.  See my 2 minute Tub Demo and review video below

I LOVE this new scent that Lush has created.

Theyve used it for Christmas in the Gingerbread Man Sparkle Jar, which im obsessed with.

Here’s my tub demo video, check out the glitter!

This is a reusable bubble bar, meaning you can use it more than once.

This was made with the yummy Gingerbread Sparkle jar scent. Its NOT the Lush floral ‘Ginger’ scent. This is a spicy yummy, Christmassy gingerbread scent.

If you have sore muscles or are cold this would be a good bath product to use because the ginger in this is nice and warming on the skin.

The bubble bar produces lots of bubbles.

You can use it for more than one bath but i used a whole one for my demo.

I love the gold shade water it makes, and i also love the gold sparkle it has too!

I stayed a little longer than i usually do in the bath just because of the therapuetic benefits of the ginger.

I would rate this a 4 out of 5. If it was a non-reusable, softer, smooshy type of lush bubble bar i would give it a 5 out of 5.

Gingerbread Man sparkle jar

See my demo video and how to use video below

This smells so spicy and amazing. Its not the floral lush ginger fragranc, thank goodness, No this Gingerbread man sparkle jar has a real holiday gingerbread goodness scent.

This is another knock out wonderful product from Lush for Christmas.
i love the two products in one concept of the Lush ‘sparkle jars’.
what they are are little gorgeous containets made out of solid massage jar mixture and inside of it is dusting powder in the same fragrance!

Lush description The secret to soft skin? Okay, I’ll tell you. Do you know the muffin man?
The muffin man?
The muffin man.
Yes, I know the muffin man, who lives on Drury Lane?
Well, when you’re feeling in need of an extra festive treat, poke holes into this Gingerbread Man’s buttons and dust yourself all over to leave skin feeling silky and smooth. After the dusting powder is all used up, the Fair Trade organic cocoa butter pot can be massaged in, to moisturise and soften while clove bud and ginger oils keep you feeling warm, cosy and smelling of Christmas baking.

Here is a review and demo of how to use it.

Scrub Scrub Scrub

4 out of 5 rating

Scrub scrub scrub is one of two new scrubs that Lush uk has made for 2018.

As i said in my review video, i like using this scrub scrub scrub more than the new magic crystals scrub.

The color of magic crystals scrub is a prettier color but i like using scrub scrub more.

Although this one is drier and thus more challenging to use, it doesnt sting like the magic crystals scrub which is wetter and easier to apply.

I like this smell. Its not quite the Comforter scent.

Its got a vaguely fruity blackberry scent. I like the scent, its comforting.

It has currant in it, like the comforter but it doesnt have the same scent.

For starters, there’s no bergamot nor cypress in it like there is in the comforter.

Also, scrub scrub scrub has pine, rosemary oil, and Buchu oil, which the Comforter doesnt have.

Its got the same size scrubbies that magic crystals has. One is not coarser than the other.

If youre very fair don’t leave the scrub on your skin for very long.

I would give this scrub a 4 out of 5 rating.

I like other companies vegan, cruelty free scrubs better.

Here’s a video where i show it up close

Turtle

Lush is making available today the ‘Turtle’ jelly bomb. I love it! It’s made in the same pine, Cypress, sandalwood and seaweed scent as their retro ‘Geophyzz’ bath bomb. So cute. They have little agar agar bits inside them to represent their plight with pollution in our oceans from waste.

In my photo below are the Mama Turtle above and baby turtle below her.

Here is a video recording of my tub demo of these.

Bling Crosby

lushblingcrosby2008b

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, FD&C Red No. 4, Patchouli Oil (Pogostemon cablin), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Lavendin Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Pine Oil (Pinus), Lemongrass Oil (Cymbopogan flexuosus), Elemi Oil (Canarium commune), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Glitter

 

This is a beautiful bubble bar with it’s orangey-gold glitter.  It has the scent of Lush’s “Karma” fragrance which is orangey, not sweet at all, earthy with patchouli, and a bit of pine. A unisex scent. It leaves a pale orange colored water and TONS of bubbles. There is also glitter in the water. The glitter doesn’t stick on you like the Karma melt but mostly gets washed down the drain if you use a squirt of shower gel in the water. Bling Crosby is so pretty and festive.

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

Karma bubble bar new style

Karma 5 out of 5 rating

Same signature Karma scent, orange, pine, patchouli, but in an absolutely STUNNING new style. Of all the new lush products this is my favorite looks-wise.  I cannot stop staring at it. My three colors are green, orange and purple, so this bar has two of my favorite colors. Not the only reason i like it though.

Dusky oranges, patchouli and pine. It smells like the classic “head shop”.  Kind of an incense-y hippy-ish vibe.   I happen to love oranges in anything, but this is so different because it’s not a sweet orange.  Not a desserty or ‘yummy’ orange.  Nor is it citrussy in the classic sense.  A most different fragrance; earthy.  I always try keep a few of these around.

Here’s a video of what this beauty looks like in the tub

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

 

Massai Latherer

One of six new Lush Oxford Street superstore Gourmet soaps.  This one has ingredients from Africa which include honey, pine, frankincense, and jasmine.  Here’s a demo video i made of washing with this soap at the sink.

 

Northern Lights soap

Ingredients: Water, Rapeseed Oil and Coconut Oil, Perfume,Pine Needle Oil ,Cypress Oil, Lime Oil,

Even though this soap is called “Northern Lights”, it doesn’t share the scent with the beautiful long, purple bath bomb of the same name from a couple of Christmases ago.   This soap has pine, cypress and lime.  I absolutely love the scent of this soap.

Lush Times:  We have an ongoing obsession, here at Lush, with the Northern Lights.  Many a trip has been taken, but rarely have they been observed. Meaning they have become something of a holy grail for us.

So yet again, we are left trying to recreate them in soap, rather than watch them in real life. But it does mean that you get amazing wonderful soaps from us.

This soap was made by Wesley, who perfectly matched the colours of the auroras he watched on the internet, and then found a special way to pour the soap to represent the natural light show.

Then Pia, our trainee perfumer from Finland, came up with an electric, fresh pine and lime perfume to finish off Wesley’s work.  Together they will make you feel like you are in the crisp climes of the arctic circle, with nature’s amazing light show performing about you.

Who said soap was boring?

Delight

See my video demonstration of this bath oil below.

This was gorgeous, silver sparkles being one of the best things i know, however the scent was a bit disappointing.  I will say that it wasn’t ‘flat’ smelling, it was actually nicely layered between the lime, pepper and pine.  It smells natural.  But it’s more of a gender neutral scent.  Not at all a girly fragrance. It makes up for it because at $3.00 that it’s lovely to combine (“cocktail”) it with almost anything else. The only silver glittery product was “Star Light” melt from Christmas past so this ‘Delight” bath oil is welcomed in my tub.
