Here’s one from 2005

 

Review: This has Rose, Tangerine, Carnation and Geranium. Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar slice was made to be the same scent as Lush’s former “Potion” body lotion. It’s a lovely, gentle, fruity, spicy carnation floral. The glitter on this bubble bar is ruby red.

Ruby Red Slippers bubble bar make the water a beautiful red color. It makes loads and loads of bubble, especially the one i had because it’s so fresh and squishy. My only complaint would be that the scent isn’t as strong on the skin as I’d like.   The scent of Potion in the bath is so lovely though.  I think Lush would be successful selling this one all year round.

Here’s a demo video i made showing this beautifully bubble bar in the bath tub.

 

Here’s a demo of the original (MUCH more glittery version)

Rose Queen

 

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Rose Absolute, Cistus Oil,Labdanum Resinoid, Tiger Lily Petals, Amaranth Flowers, Apple Blossom,Larkspur petals, *Citral, *Citronellol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Benzyl Alcohol,Benzyl Salicylate, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal, Colour 45410

Lush Times: Do you love Tisty Tosty, but are looking for a less serious more playful rose bath? Well this is the one. Instead of serious romantic adult thoughts – this is a run through a rose garden, with your hands brushing the tops of the bushes.

The scent is a light floral rosy accord, of rose absolute and geranium with amber notes of rock rose. The bathwater has a rosy pink glow with a sprinkling of tigerlily, apple blossom and larkspur petals adrift on the surface. Mo says this is a return to her old style ballistics; for times when you want nothing but an escape to simpler times of flowers, nature and innocent simplicity.

Since getting their OBEs, Mark and Mo have had lots of requests to attend events. But none so welcome as an invite to the annual festival at the parish church where Mark grew up, to crown this year’s Rose Queen. The icing on the cake came when Mark met the local vicar and discovered he was wearing our Breath of God fragrance – he then introduced Mark to his daughter, who was wearing our Imogen Rose fragrance! With serendipity like that, you have to come home and invent a product to mark the event.

Noubar

 

Lush Times Online: Then the day got even better! Mo pulled the covers off to strip bare her brand new Palm Oil Free Sexy Noubar Soap! It’s one of those “But it looks so delicious, surely i could just take a tiny bite…” soaps that are her speciality. To be fair it does look rather like nougat, what with all those crushed pistachios to give you an exfoliating scrub. Dont do it. Just wash with it. To give it another posh confectionary touch, Mo’s given it a Turkish rose absolute fragrance, with coffee and a hint of smokey vetivert. It’s long name is to remind everyone of the campaign to stop primary forests being destroyed replaced with palm plantations; profitable for the owners but disastrous for the local people and wildlife and suicidal for our shared environment. We don’t just campaign, we act. Join in! And remember, wash with it, no chewing!

Ingredients:Water (Aqua), Glycerine, Rapeseed oil; Sunflower oil; Coconut oil (Brassica napus; Helianthus annuus; Cocos nucifera), Chopped Peanuts (Arachis hypogaea), Chopped Almonds (Prunus dulcis), Chopped Walnuts (Juglans regia), Sodium Hydroxide, Perfume, Titanium Dioxide, Pistachio Nuts (Pistacia vera), Gardenia Extract (Gardenia jasminoides), Vetivert Oil (Vetiveria zizanoides), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Cedarwood Oil (Cupressus funebris), Sodium Chloride, Geraniol, *Citronellol, Colour 42045 * Occurs naturally in Essential Oils

It’s a beautiful green color, and it’s nutty, but i’m not thrilled with all the
nuts.

Ylang Song

4.5 outo f 5 rating

See my demo video of this close up in the tub.

A Lush Ltd employee contacted me the other day and asked of i had tried this bomb. They said they had a feeling i would like this one. So i looked for one and bought one from Ebay.

Lush says: “Tunisian neroli, Peruvian Rosewood erupt into a sensual world tumbling peony petals.”

And after using it;  Yes this does remind me of an old school lush bath bomb because of the flowers.

This bomb reminds me very much of a Monet painting, perhaps the coloring in the painting “water lillies”.  When the bomb finished dissolving, what’s left looks like a painting; a beautiful spring green background with purple petals strewn about. Oh my. And the smell is very nice in my opinion. It’s floral, woody, fruity. But it all blends together do beautifully. Like bathing in a fairy glade.

The gorgeous ingredients are: Ylang ghana oil, neroli, rosewood, rose oil, peony petals, yellow rose petals, and purple everlasting flower.

I became 6 years old once again. I played with the flowers, arranging them on the side of the tub and gazing at the beautiful colored petals.

Here’s a link to a youtube video i made of the Ylang Song in the tub.

Absolute Delight

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Rose Absolute (Rosa centifolia), Bergamot Oil (Citrus bergamia), Geranium Bourbon Oil (Pelargonium crispum), Jasmine Absolute (Jasminum officinale), Sandalwood Oil (Santalum album), Perfume, Colour 18050.

 

Rose that smells a little sweet like candy and is also a powdery rose scent. It’s supposed to smell like the candy “Turkish Delight” and it does, but I still can’t get into this. Is it a floral? Is it candy? It was okay but didn’t really excite me a whole bunch. Pretty pink colored water.

 

Product description from Early Fall 2003 LT (Hard):

If the Sex Bomb is the ballistic you’d take out on a hot date, then the Absolute Delight is the one you’d want to spend the rest of your life with. It may not be quite so bright and flashy – “obvious” as my gran would have put it – but it is gentle, kind, and lovely, the kind of ballistic you’ll never tire of coming home to. We scent it with Turkish rose absolute, the perfume made from fresh rose petals, with balancing geranium, with a touch of relaxing sandalwood and sesnual jasmine and as it looks a little like Turkish delight (the rose scented sweetie dusted with icing sugar*) we thought that Absolute Delight would be a very appropriate name for it.

 

From the Festive Christmas Issue 2003 LT (Inhale):

Often when we use the words “absolutely delightful,” we mean “quite nice,” really, but occasionally we find something which really deserves the compliment. If we are being strictly literal about it, the Absolute Delight deserves its name because it is scented with Turkish rose absolute, a perfume made from rose petals. However, we can also justify calling it that because it gives you a truly lovely bathing experience. It’s not full of petals or glitter; it merely makes bath time a gorgeously sensual, relaxing treat which makes you feel wonderful.
