Digi’s Review: This bomb smells like the perfume Imogen Rose. It’s a powerful bomb when in the water, the scent doesn’t disappear, it clings to you.

 

Leap Frog

See my demo video of this in the tub 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.

Here’s a demo video of it

Stardust bath bomb 2015

4.5 out of 4.5 rating
See my video review below
Lush description:  Follow yonder star all the way to the bathroom; it will bear exotic gifts of Fair Trade Ugandan vanilla
from the Mountains of the Moon and precious rosewood from the depths of the Peruvian rainforest.
A twinkly dip in its starlit waters gives a bergamot-powered boost to the mind and body – ideal
for a little post-party recovery.
$5.25 US / £4.95 UK
White this bath bomb doesn’t lend fantastic colors in the tub, it makes a lovely white sparkle in the water.  The scent has vanilla but it’s not a ‘bakery-life’ vanilla scent.  It’s brightened up a bit with the addition of bergamot, and the rosewood keeps it grounded.  It’s more of a ‘pretty’ scent than a foody one to my nose.  I wouldn’t rush out and buy four more but i might buy one more to enjoy.

Here’s a video demo i made of the Stardust bath bomb

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.

Cyanide Pill

 

4 out of 4 rating

See my demo video below.  Cyanide Pill has a fruity creamy, comforting kind of beginning scent, then comes a bitter almond note, almost makes me wrinkle my nose.  I smell a vague cherryish note too.  There is a silver glitter in the middle of this yellow bath bomb, which disperses into the water and looks pretty and glittery.  Lush North America made a soap in 2015 called “Hands of Friendship’ which shares it’s scent with the Cyanide Pill.

When Lush had a gallery space built to introduce their new Gorilla III range of perfumes from their new “Death and Decay” series, they had a gallery room for each perfume they were introducing, including site and sound to match the perfume.  Cyanide perfume was one of them gallery displays.  However Lush never released the Cyanide perfume, turns out they only used the scent for the gallery display.  We’re told that this new Cyanide pill bath bomb has the scent of that Gorilla III ‘Cyanide’ gallery room.  I’ll have to try another one to make sure but i’m not sure i like the smells of this one. 2015 3.50 gpb / $5.75

 

Lush description: Slide into the danger zone

Here’s my youtube video of what Cyanide Pill looks like in the tub. 🙂

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.

Cherry Blossom

5 out of 5 rating

This gets my vote for prettiest Lush bubble bar.

This is lovely and smells of rosewood, cedarwood and lemon oil.   It smells sweet and lovely.

Lovely, delicate pink bubbles.  It’s more conditioning than most lush bubble bars.

This leaves a silver- pink glittery shimmer in the water.  This bubble bar has the whole package.  I was surprised that it made the bath water moisturizing as well as fairy-like.  It smells slightly perfumey, and woody, but the woodiness is tempered by the bright lemon.

Video showing the pink and silver water is below

The nice thing about this bubble bar is that it comes with two bars on one stick.  It falls into the category “almost too pretty to use’.  I bought multiple.  I bought 4 or 5 of them, so even though i’ve used them i still have my ‘display’ cherry blossom. 🙂

Here’s a demo video I made of the Cherry Blossom in the bath.

 

Flowering Tea bubble bar

This is a bit heavier than it looks. What a cute idea, dunk the tea bag in the tub for loads of lovely jasmine scented bubbles.  it contains tiny blue flower petals, which begin to float around the water.  And there is also a pretty white shimmer that lush adds to this one.  I thought this might be herbier than it is.  I didn’t expect such a pretty floral.

 

Here is a photo i took of this gorgeous bubble bar.  And the video is below this photo.
