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

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.

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.

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
