Ice Blue shampoo

 

lushiceblueshampoo_zps25c9bb51

This is very minty.  It wakes you up in the morning to wash hair with this.  It smells nice and strongly of mint.  Lush made a soap called ‘Ice Blue; with the same minty smell.

Lush description:  How much mint can you take in one shampoo? How about an quick blast of spearmint and two different peppermints to perk you up from three directions at once. Mint stimulates your hair follicles and puts a bit of life back into your hair; it wakes up your brain too, so it’s a really excellent morning shampoo for everyone who’s a little bit reluctant to get up and running before noon. It’s brilliant for oily to normal hair that’s a bit flat, dull and dozy now and again. Ice Blue Shampoo was one of the Lush creative team’s first ever best selling, brilliant smelling products; we thought it was time to give it another go.

Ingredients: Water, Perfume, Lactic Acid, Spearmint Oil, Peppermint Oil, Fine sea Salt,

Lush description:  Life is unpredictable, but with gunpowder tea and charcoal you can be sure of explosive freshness. Nibble one between your teeth for a blast of sea salt, aniseed and black pepper with the taste of spicy cola.

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.

Big Blue

Ingredients: 200g (6.3 oz) $4.75

Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Atlantic Sea Salt Crystals (Sodium chloride), Perfume, Arame Seaweed (Eisenia arborea), Lemon Oil (Citrus limonum), Lavender Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Seaweed Absolute (Fucus vesiculosus), FD&C Blue No. 1, FD&C Yellow No. 5.

Review: If I had to use one word to describe this, I’d say “refreshing”. It’s just like the ocean and has a stupifying deep blue color. Big Blue has a strong scent and has been known to make a couple of people headachey but it is totally invigorating and “spa-like” to me. And relaxing too. Big Blue ballistic has been a popular Lush item for years and years for a reason. The only down side is the small seaweed pieces to cleanup but if you really don’t like them you can put the ballistic in a nylon stocking or a giant teaball that you sometimes find in kitchen stores. I like the seaweed because it really is skin softening (so is the sea salt in Big Blue) and I have dry skin so my skin feels really good after a bath with Big Blue.

Notes: “Bubbling Under” was the bubble bar that Lush made to go with Big Blue. Lush’s “Enchanted Island” bath melt also has this same ocean/sea/lavender/lemon scent.

Lush Times 2006 description: Be aware that the Big Blue gives you the full Pacific Ocean experience, complete with strands of mineral rich seaweed (but stopping short of the actual fish). This bright blue Ballistic, topped with a crust of stimulating sea salt gives you a deep turquoise blue bath scented with balancing lavender and stimulating lemon oil to refresh your mind and body almost as much as a holiday by the warm ocean. Bear in mind that the Big Blue is a lot cheaper, there’s no jet lag and you don’t have to eat aeroplane food.

 

Here’s a video i made of Big Blue in the tub
