Love Locket Amazeball 2020

5 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute tub demo video belo

This year Lush brought back the popular Valentine love locket bath bomb. However this year both the design and the scent are different.

This year lush designed the love locket in the new ‘Amazeball’ design, which is a hollowed out design filled with a bath bomb top, and miniature, multi colored bath bombs inside the hollowed out area.

Also, this year Lush made it in the popular ‘Yummy Mummy’ shower gel scent. Its a caremelly strawberry scent made with strawberry, orange oil, and tonka bean.

My favorite Lush exclusive ‘Roller’ bath bomb is in this scent too.

The Love Locket is a bit larger than regular lush bath bombs.

Primarily pink with blue accents, the tiny heart-shaped bath bombs inside are blue, yellow, green and pink.

The end result is a mauve colored, sparkly water that smells like strawberry.

“Don’t lock your love away, release it in a spectacle of strawberry-scented swirls. This amazeball is the key to a great bath, so unlock your heart’s true potential with a good soak in the tub. Full to the brim with tiny bath bomb hearts, you’re sure to be all a flutter thanks to uplifting orange and cosy tonka.

You’ll love this if you like:
– Super soaks, bright colours and a heart full of giddy joy.
 Strawberries and Cream bath bomb or  D’Fluff shaving soap.
– Treating yourself or the ones you care for to a big, blissful bath.

Benefits:
– Tonka absolute has a comforting sweet fragrance, adding a snuggly embrace of warmth to this strawberry-scented treat.
– The uplifting note of Brazilian orange oil adds a drop of sunshine to your bath, as well as boosting your mood.
– The addition of cornflour ensures that this bath bomb is extra softening for the skin.

How to use: Bust the lock off this amazeball by removing the stopper and shake as many of the little bath bombs into the tub as your heart desires, allowing them to tumble in and fizz away. Feel free to indulge with the whole thing at once, or keep the shell for another time. Why not put a love note inside for that special someone to find as they soak?”

Rose Butterfly

5 out of 5 rating

Formerly this was only available during Mother’s Day but in early 2020 Lush made this a regular item.

Has a rose floral scent. I describe the scent more in my tub Demo video below.

Loving the pink and blue bath art.

Its a slow fizzer and lets out a beautiful silvery blue shimmer into the water.

Butterflies love flowers and so will you when this luxurious pink and blue bath bomb fizzes through the water, leaving swirls of shimmer in its wake and a fragrant floral perfume on your skin.

You’ll love this if you like:
– Soothing soaks in refreshing lemon and calming rose.
 Pearl massage bar or Rose Jam bubbleroon.
– To lay back and dream of fields of Turkish roses.

How to use: Draw a bath, jump in and drop this relaxing treat in for a soft soothing soak.

How to store: Store in a dry, cool place until you’re ready to jump into violet-coloured waters.

The ultimate color left when the bath bomb is dissolved is a gorgeous, sapphire blue color.

Benefits:
– Rose oil from Turkey soothes your skin and restores radiance.
– Sicilian lemon oil gives a mood-boosting hit of zest.

Glittery

I would definitely get more than one.

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
See my 2 minute tub demo video below

£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.

4 out of 5 rating.

The candy man can

Intro: Ready to brush up on your art skills? Bathing doesn’t have to be boring. Whether you’re a seasoned artist or just like to paint by numbers, these new #BathArt reusable bubble brushes from Lush’s artful splodgers are sure to make a big splash in your bathroom.

You’ll love this if you like:

– Mint Bubble Brush, Lemon Bubble Brush, and Creamy Candy bubble bar. – Bright pink baths with a candy fluff scent.

– Releasing your inner Picasso and turning bathtime into your own art lesson.

Benefits:

– Cream of tartar creates a super bubbly bath.

– Synthetic musk offers a sweet and lingering fragrance.

How to use: 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, flick, stroke and splash, then sit back and relax as you admire your masterpiece.

How to store: Leave your brush to dry on the side ready for your next work of art.

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.

Lush: A reusable bubble bar star that gives mounds of sweet-smelling foam. This is a solid version of our best selling Snow Fairy shower gel for those who prefer to bath.

The magic of this version is that you can wave your wand under the water until you have the amount of bubbles you want – then you just stash it somewhere safe to dry off, ready for when you next bath. We’ve included pink ribbon and a bell, because if you are going to wave your wand, then you need some added drama and special effects! You should get several baths from this, depending on how much bubbly magic you want in your bath.  Each one will leave you smelling of candy floss and pear drops. Baths don’t get more yummy or more girly than this.

Here’s a demo and review i made of this beautiful bubble bar in the tub.

Rose Lollipop

This is so yummy smelling.  And it tastes nice. Most of all i like the thicker consistency.  I have chronic dry lips (I live in the desert) and i need a little extra moisture.  This does the trick well.  My favorite of the four new lip balms from Lush Oxford Street in London.

Strawberry Bombshell Lip Tint

£5.95 I made a swatch after someone asked me to, to help give a good idea of how it might look.

This one has real strawberries in it, as well as ylang ylang, melon, and spearmint. It tastes good.

Best Washes

Best Washes shower wash card.

Made with the Lush “Snow Fairy” scent.

 

Made from melon pull, not trees! You just tear off a small piece and wash with it like soap. Not only does it cleanse, but it’s moisturizing too, and your left with the scent of snow fairy your skin. Fairly economical too, a little tiny piece goes a long way.

Tooth Fairy Strawberry tooth powder

Weight:  35g

Cost:  4.95 gbp / $7.50

Lush description:  Wish and swish.  Turn your toothbrush into a magic wand with sparkles and strawberries.

Review:  This is a fluoride and checmical free option for cleaning your teeth.  Basically you wet your toothbrush, then stick the bristles in the tooth powder, and then brush as usual.  It tastes like strawberry, and my teeth did feel squeaky clean afterwards. Even though it has sparkles the sparkle doesn’t stick to your teeth.  I’m definitely using this one up.  I have the other new toothy tabs to use before i can get another Toothy Fairy powder.  Video coming very soon.

Ingredients:  calcium carbonate, beetroot powder, sorbitol, snowflake lustre, arrowroot, lauroyl sarcosine, kaolin, sodium bicarbonate, strawberry extract, lemon oil, stevia, xylitol

Candy Floss Showder

 

A shower scrubbing powder or ‘Showder’ as Lush calls it. It’s a dry shower scrub of calamine powder and sugar.  This one has the Snowfairy scent.

Here’s a video i made of Candy Floss Showder and what it looks like up close and how to use.

 

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.

Flosty Gritter

This bubble bar stands out to me as one i would take on a desert island.  See my 3 minute video of it in the tub, it will BLOW your mind. Color, scent, this one has it all.

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Cocamide DEA, Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Clary Sage Oil (Salvia sclarea), Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida), Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), *Linalool, Colour 45410, Colour 17200, Pink Glitter (Polyethylene terephthalate and Acrylates copolymer).

Lush Description: Sexy vanilla & soothing lavender bubbles with a swirl of pink flosty gritter (as spelled by Noriko).



 

 

 

Review: This is a lovely shade of bright pink. It has pinkish/purple glitter, but not too much. Mine was so soft and squishy and the vanilla milkshake scent of “American Cream” hair conditioner wafted up all around me in the tub. It’s funny how a scent can become better or worse to me depending on what the delivery mechanism of that scent is; bubble bar, soap, hair conditioner, etc. The American Cream scent of Clary sage, vanilla and lavender is so scrummy in bubble bar form. I was struck at how strong the scent was and that people would probably like this bubble bar alot. Flosty is sweet, foody, fresh, herbal, blended in such a wonderful way. And that fact that the bubble bar is covered in fushia glitter doesn’t hurt it’s ratings in my book. I didn’t think Flosty Gritter was going to impress me as much as it did. I also think that this is going to be a huge hit with the majority of Lush buyers. I’m not completly headover heels about the sage that’s in the American Cream scent, that’s the only reason I’m in the minority when I give this a 3. I’m surrounded by sage where I live and it grows wild in our yards. It’s a beautiful plant but the scent of sage isn’t one of my favorite smells.

Mechanic soap

It has the Lush “Snow Fairy” scent.
An exfoliating Pumice soap to remove ingrained dirt.
Cold-pressed means no heat was used to bind the fresh ingredients together.

The lack of heat helps the oils retain all of their fragrance and fresh nutrients.
