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.

This is delightful.  At first spray, the bright lavender is the primary note i smell.  It’s nice and strongly scented.

At 10 minutes the lavender scent dimnished greatly and now the rose oil scent is present, and to me it resembles the Lush “Rose Jam’ scent slightly, just slightly.  And there is a raspberry note present.  Quite nice.  It’s not a candyish raspberry nor a fake raspberry scent.  It remains bright and even sparkly.  it almost reminds me of raspberry soda.
At 30 minutes the lavender has disappeared completely. However, the rose,  and especially the raspberry are more present than at first spray.  In face i’d say the fragrance has gotten sweeter, in a good way.  Now it’s turned into a sticky sweet raspberry rose jam scent on the specific place on my arm that i initially sprayed it.  It’s warmer, thicker rose and raspberry now and less sparkly.  The sparkliness isn’t gone though, it’s just less so as it dries down, turning more into a “yum” kind of scent.  I can get what Simon Constantine’s daughter Amelie Mae is like, sparkly, fresh, sweet, young, and delightful.

I’m glad i was able to acquire one of these on Ebay. The crazy money i spent on it was worth it.

Has rose oil and sicilian lemon.

See my demo video of my Igloo soap below

Here’s the 500g brick i got in mail order from lush.co.uk for 19-20 dollars.  They also sell a single size soap 100g, and a 250 piece.  Alternatively, you can go to your nearest Lush store and pick any piece you want from the giant store version.

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)

Pleasure Dough

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate,Cream of Tartar (Tartaric acid), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamide DEA, Rose Petals (Rosa centifolia), Perfume, Lavender Flowers, (Lavendula officinalis), Peppermint Leaves (Mentha piperita). Lavender Oil, Orange Blossom Absolute, Rose Absolute.

Lush description: Pleasure Dough is the Bubble Bar Slice for days when you have plenty of time to yourself so you can take a long, luxurious bath and enjoy every second of it. (I wish.) OK then, it’s also for when you’d love to have ages for a bath but you might as well get as much pleasure out of your five minutes as possible. Made to the personal private recipe of Ninan de Lenclos, legendary courtesan from the time of Louis XIV (someone that knew more than most about the art of pleasure), it contains flower petals and oils to stimulate the senses and to soften the skin. Do enjoy it.

 

I think this smells somewhat Lush Dream Cream body lotion that Lush sell in stores. Initially i was waiting for a typical flowery or sweet bubble bar scent. But this is the kind of therapuetic calming lavender scent that posh spas would use. In the water it’s very soothing and makes the skin soft. Imagine bathing in a soothing blend of Rose Petals, Lavender Flowers, Peppermint Leaves Lavender Oil, Orange Blossom Absolute and Rose Absolute. If you don’t like bits in your bath though be sure to put this in a nylon or seive to keep the petals and bits of herbs contained. This bubble bar makes me say “Ahhhh” at the end of a hard day and I find this to be extra good in the summer when it’s hot, muggy and uncomfortable. Indeed, it feels like the spa of courtesans in a bar.

Here’s a demo video I made so you can see how luscious this soap is as I wash my hands with it.

Here are a couple of photos I’ve taken of ALL Lush products made with this scent.

Rose Jam jelly

 

5 out of 5 rating  See my demo and review video of this jelly below

Lush has made many products with their “Rose Jam’ scent, and this is my favorite of the bunch.  I never knew Rose Jam could be even better, as i thought it was already a perfect fragrance.  Somehow Lush made the shower jelly even more fragrant, and a wee bit sweeter, or seemingly to my nose, than other Rose Jam scented products.

I love the smell of this even more than the Lush Rose Jam perfume believe it or not.  Not only does this jelly’s gorgeous fragrance stay on my skin long after i’ve taken a shower, but it’s more moisturizing than other Lush jellies because of the argan oil in this jelly.

Here’s a short demo video i made of this jelly

See my Twilight Jelly page too!

 

 

Frog Prince

See video below.  Also see “Leap Frog” bath bomb, same bomb, different names.This was first made for Valentine’s in the 2009-2011 time frame.  I absolutely love everything about this bath bomb.  It’s super cute, and the smell is great, and the water is a nice color when he fizzes away.  The scent stays on my skin longer than most bath bomb scent. It’s a floral.  It’s a multiple floral.  Good Lush floral blends are fewer then the fruity or candy scents from Lush, and this is a nice floral.
Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Cocoa Butter, Almond Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Rose Absolute , Ylang Ylang Oil.

Lush Times: Another magical creation by Michelle, Frog Prince is an extremely handsome and regal frog with a pair of vibrantly red and kissable lips. Give him a quick peck, drop him in the tub and wait for your prince to come. Simon’s new fragrance is an aphrodisiac blend with sweet undertones; he used jasmine, neroli and rosewood to create a sensual fragrance for those longing for their prince – or princess – to come. It’s not all about the fragrance with this one, it’s also brimming with cocoa butter and almond oil for a luxuriously moisturising soak.

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.

Bon Bain Bonnard

Review: A very pretty ballistic, it’s white with pastel pink, blue and yellow soap confetti and yellow, pink, blue salt crystals in the outter middle of it. It’s powdery and floral and slightly perfumey. The smell is similar to “Sakura” ballistic but with a strange undertone to my nose that keeps this from being stellar to me. Bon Bain Bonnard was fairly popular. The other three “Artist” ballistics that Lush has made are “Monet’s Garden” and “Kiss Me Klimt” and “Still Life“.

Ingredients: Bicarb, Citric Acid, Coarse Atlantic Sea Salt, Rose Oil, Perfume, Orange Oil, Crocin, Colorform Turquoise, Colorform Crimson.

Lush Times 2002 description: This is the Artistic Bath Bomb, named after Bonnard, influenced by his paintings of the nudes in the bath and inspired by his work ‘White Interior’. Arguably one of the best smelling bath bombs. The sea salt will make your body feel new, and the orange blossoms will do the same for your mind. A bomb for everyone in search of inspiration.
