Candy Mountain Yule Log

4 out of 5 rating

Yeah, this isnt Snow Fairy scented firstly. Just wanted to get that out of the way.

This is Creamy Candy scented. Lush makes a bubble bar year round called ‘Creamy Candy’ in stores. Well every Christmas Lush makes a christmas themed Creamy Candy bubble bar and calls it ‘Candy Mountain.

Historically its looked kind of like a unicorn horn shape.

This year however, Lush has re-designed their Christmas Candy Mountain. It looks quite different. It has more of a laser cut mountain design. I like it, its more refined than past years Candy Mountain.

The reason people confuse this with snow fairy is because the two scents creamy candy and snow fairy/candy fluff are similar, but yhey are different and made with different scent ingredients such as synthetic musk and vanilla in varying degrees. Snow Fairy/Candy Fluff adds clove bud leaf.

This Candy Mountain has extra skin conditioning ingredients in it, moreso than other Lush bubble bars.

I recorded a 1 minute tub demo of it for you below

Cheery Christmas

5 out of 5 rating

£3.95 (uk and converted to $5.15)

This is a pretty, new snowflake shape for Christmas. A bright pink color and it has some blue inside as well. Its not a large bomb, its more on the medium/small size.

The scents is a new one, as Lush states its made with lemon, buchu and currant.

It smells brightly, fruity to me, but not in a citrus way, more in a berryish way. I thought this smelled somewhat familiar but couldn’t put my finger on it. But after asking lush i was told its a brand new scent.

I used Cheery Christmas bath bomb in my bath along with the Lush blackberry and currant Scrub scrub scrub. I figured since yhey both have berries in them they would go nicely.

I like the blue and pink combination of the bath bomb colors in the tub.

The end result is a different shade of purple, almost a mauve color, with silver sparkle.

Gorgeous!

I bought two more Cheery Christmas bath bombs when i placed my secondLush Christmas order.

Lush description: Outside, snowflakes fall to the ground, creating a picturesque postcard landscape, untouched and unspoilt. Against the back drop of a winter dream, Sicilian lemon oil refreshes and rejuvenates putting a smile on the face of all who bathe here. Pop this bundle of joy in the bath and allow the intricate pattern to take shape before your eyes. Lay back, feel relaxed and enjoy the festive season as blackcurrant-scented buchu oil spreads the cheer.

After all, ’tis the season to be jolly.

Heres a pic i took of a bath i took with two bath bombs, one of them being cheery christmas bomb.

Candy bubble brush

4 out of 5 rating.

while the re-usable bubble bars are not my favorite…these new bubble brushes are fun. The re-usable consistency lends itself very well to these ‘brushes’ shape.

The Candy bubble brush is my second favorite bubble brush.

Candy bubble brush is made with the Lush ‘Candy Fluff’ scent. synthetic musk is used in this because in order to use real musk the animal is killed.

i like this one because the scent is sweet and nice like some kind of pink candy.

Heres a video i made where i demo all of the bubble brushes including the Pink Candy bubble brush

I can use it by itself to make a pink color or i sometimes like to mix colors as below

Can’t decide which one to go for? As the saying goes – different strokes for different folks, which is why there’s a palette of three colours to Picasso from (but it wouldn’t Erté to try them all). Candy Bubble Brush creates a vibrant pink with a sweet candy fluff scent that will have you coming back for more.

Take your brush and hold under running water to get the bubbles going. When the bath is covered in a blanket of bubbles your canvas awaits! Dip the brush into the water before gliding it over the foam, dip, and flick, stroke, and splash, then sit back and relax as you admire your masterpiece. It might be abstract, it might be modern, it might be a load of Pollocks but whatever it is it’s bound to make a good impression!

Pink Petigrain

2 out of 5 rating

This is the most bitter thing I’ve ever smelled in a long time.

I wanted to like this because its so pretty.

Pink petigrain is supposed to share its scent with the Lush madame president bath bomb. Grapefruit and petigrain.

What in the actual…?

I said to myself ‘There is NO WAY my petigrain flower smells like madame president bath bomb’.

Firstly, i LOVE the scent of Madame President.

I bought six of them.

Secondly, i HATE the scent of this Pink Petigrain blossom.

When i got it out of my package my eyes lit up because of the pretty coral color and the flower shape.

But i recoiled back when my nose smelled it.

How do we explain that?

Maybe because some things melted in my order the scents combined strangely? Dunno.

I was so adament i said i dont even care if Mark or Jack C themselves tell me it is.

I have both Madame President bomb & Pink Petitgrain blossom bubnle bar side by side. NO.

I don’t know if i got a bad one or what but no. Mmmkay. Just *NO*.

Did my nose just all of a sudden after 17 years just say ‘April, i’m done.’? I’m not sure, but suffice it to say i dont like the bitter, unpleasant smell of this bubble bar, and i won’t be buying another one. I had to use something else with it because i couldnt stand the smell. How odd. I havent had a reaction to a lush product in quite sometime. But i guess i cant like them all. *Shrug*

Your mileage may vary.

Description

For a couple of hours, lay back and indulge in pink waters covered in soft, fluffy bubbles. Calming petitgrain oil works its wonders on worries and cares, the woody scent evoking images of summer walks through citrus groves. Meanwhile, refreshing grapefruit oil lifts moods high above the clouds of the day, bringing with it memories of breakfasts taken on warm, sunlit verandas. Hold this flower under running water and let it spin and build bubbles before breathing deeply and allowing yourself to be transported away on a cheerful, summer breeze.

See my demo video of this below

 

Ingredients: Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Lavender Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata), Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Neroli Oil (Citrus amara), Pink Heart Confetti, D&C Red No. 33, FD&C Red No. 4, D&C Red No. 27, Candy Flowers

This is such a pretty ballistic. It smells of vanilla, neroli, lavender and tonka bean.  I just didnt’ like this ballistic at all when I first had it in a bath. But after using it again, wow, it’s fruity, and girly, and a tad foody, all at the same time. The orangey- neroli is there, the vanilla, the lavender. Water that is pretty medium dark pink. And wait, there are candy hearts and tiny heart confetti made out of soap too? And a tiny amount of magenta colored glitter at the bottom? Why didn’t I like this again?  a 4 star rating.

Lush Times 2006 Description: Darlings, this is the ultimate in fuchsia pink baths. Four candy flowers top this marvel of utter pinkness and, as it fizzes furiously, it unleashes a shower of pink confetti into the bathwater. We’re using our brand new favourite tonka bean essential oil because it smells so wickedly fabulous, darlings! It also helps you to get in touch with your deeper emotions. Do be careful whom you meet for lunch just after you bathe! We don’t want to go eleasing our deeper emotions all over the starter and upsetting the other ladies, do we? (Or do we?).

In 2010 this changed to a new shape – becoming the same size as 90g ballistics like the lush Butterball bath bomb is.

Here’s a demo video i made of this bath bomb in the tub close up
