Under the Umbrella Tree

I would rate this bath bomb a 4 out of 5 rating.

This is a cute bath bomb.   I love the tree shape of it.

This was made with the Lush “Breath of God’ fragrance.

The fragrance is a combination of two Lush scents “Inhale’ and ‘Exhale’.

There are masculine notes such as cedar wood, sandalwood,, and feminine notes such as rose. Together they form the classic Breath of God fragrance, which Lush has sold since 2008. Men would like it but women would like it too It’s both earthy and airy in the same fragrance.

Lush has made a bath bomb In the past called “Inhale Exhale‘ with a similar fragrance.

The bath bomb is a fast fizzes and makes a beautiful, not often seen, lime green water.  So uplifting and hopeful, like Spring.

 

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.

Mint bubble brush

Mint bubble brush is one of three new ‘bubble brush’ design type of re-usable bubble bars from Lush Cosmetics.

Lush has come out with five new re-usable bubble bars, three of them being in the bubble brush type. Mint is the blue one. Its got a minty scent that isnt too sweet. In fact i i wish it were a *bit* more sweet. Its the scent of their ‘Freeze’ shower gel.

Its not quite like Christingle body conditioner. Mint bubble brush isnt that sweet. Its the scent of their ‘Freeze’ shower gel.

I love the deep blue hue one can attain with this bubble bar. Its tun to drip blotches of blue on the bubbles. And it’s fun to paint the bubbles as i show in the video.

I enjoy combining colors, as those of you who have seen my bath cocktails know. I often like to create gradients or ombre effects with different bath products.

Well these new Lush bubble bars lend themselves well to this kind of blending, as ive tried to show below.

I think these new bubble brush bars are quite fun. I like that the three primary colors are represented. I would give these bubble brush bars a 4 out of 5. While i don’t particularly like the re-usable bubble bars as much as the regular lush bubble bars, these are fun because you can use them in different ways. I would buy another one of each color. But it’s not one i would stock up on.

Scent Family – Big Calm

Lush Big Calm Jelly was first, as a retro item, sold in stores in 2005, 2006 and then sold again on line only in Lush’s “retro’ section in 2009-2011, then remade and sold again in the online Lush Kitchen as an exclusive item four times from 2015-2017.

the scent is made with real pineapple juice (ive seen the pineapples in the lush im factory refrigerator) and coconut oil.

Lush Kitchen made the Big Calm body lotion and the solid Big Calm perfume exclusively in the Lush Kitchen in 2016 and nowhere else and at no other time than the one time only.

Then Lush introduced the Yellow Submarine bath bomb as an exclusive at the Lush Summit 2017. Now the Yellow Submarine is a regular in store bath bomb sold currently and on their mail order website.
