Review: I think the lemon in this smells too strong to me. I like Back for Breakfast shower gel more. Slammer is the best for waking up it’s said. Lush made this shower gel to be the same as their once loved “Slammer” ballistic. It’s a popular shower gel , some say the Slammer scent smells like a margarita. The guys would like this Slammer gel too as it’s a neutral scent. It’s got just the right amount of sweetness. Smells kind of like lime and lemon punch.
Lush 2005 Description: If Back For Breakfast is too soft for you then Slammer will be your shower gel of choice. It metamorphosed not long back from a Bath Ballistic to a shower gel because the kind of people likely to need a Slammer alarm call do not always have time for a bath in the morning. (Although it does a very good job as a bubble bath for those too tired to stand up.) You may notice, those of you who like the odd tequila cocktail, that our Slammer, with its fresh lime juice and rock salt, bears a certain resemblance to another sort of slammer. Those of you who are partial to the other sort of slammer in the evening will probably need a bottle of ours to get you through the morning.
Ingredients: Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Fresh Spring Water (Aqua), Fresh Scottish Sea Water (Aqua), Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Aloe Vera Gel (Aloe barbadensis), Sea Salt (Sodium chloride), Perfume, Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Bergamot Oil (Citrus bergamia), Orange Oil (Citrus dulcis), Colour 42045, Methylparaben, Propylparaben.
Review: Woo! That’s the way it feels. Powerfully minty with a teeny weeny bit of citrus. Its kind of a sweet mint, more sweet than ‘Dirty’ not as herbally as ‘Dirty’. It’s fabulous in the morning or when it’s hot and muggy outside. Oh and ladies, don’t get this near your va jay jay, it can be kind of uncomfortable for sensitive areas.
Lush 2005 Description: Peppermint has this amazing quality of making your feel cool when you’re hot and warm when you’re cold. When you’re in a warm shower and you put a dollop of Freeze Shower Gel on your body it gives you a refreshing, tingly feeling all over. Peppermint has been used for thousands of years to help the skin stay soft and the mind stay focused. One view is that it was named ‘mente’ meaning thought because it is said to help concentration and inspiration. If you lack either of these, try making Freeze your morning shower gel and shampoo of choice.
This shower gel.is exclusive to the Lush Uk Kitchen subscription box.
Its actually made by combining two existing
Lush products: ‘Tramp’ and ‘Smaragadine’.
Tramp is a old lush favorite shower gel that smelled very earthy like a fairy glade. Its main scent notes were patchouli and oakmoss.
Smaragadine was an even older product that was a liquid bubble bath made with mint, lavender, rose petal, sandalwood, oranfe peel, chamomile, petitgrain and ginger.
Ingredients: White Horehound and Peppermint Leaf Infusion, Balm Herb, Rose Petal and Lavender Flower Infusion, Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Cocoamphoacetate, Lauryl Betaine, Propylene Glycol, Fine Sea Salt, Organic Orange Peel Decoction, Patchouli Oil, Petitgrain Oil, Pimento Berry Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Ginger Oil, Plantain Vinegar Gel, Perfume, Methyl Ionone, Eugenol, *Limonene, Linalool, Chlorophyllin, Methylparaben. * Occurs naturally in essential oils
Review: Thick, green and mossy. Doubles as a bubble bath. Very burnt-patchouli/clove scented; if you like the Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bar, you’ll probably like Supertramp. Scent lingers on the skin for hours after showering. I like it, but not quite as much as Grass.
Lush Kitchen description: An earthy, mystical shower gel that smells like wandering through tall dark pine trees in an enchanted forest over a cool soft carpet of moss. With horehound to cleanse the skin, peppermint to add a warming, fresh top note and the sensual, floral scents of lavender and rose.
So Supertramp has all of these notes. Its a multi layered spa type of scent.
The Supertramp shower gel is a dark green,
thick gel that is calming and soothing.
I woukd say that its one of the best green, earthy shower gels that Lush has made, with the exception of Tramp.
Its a unisex scent that would be liked by both men and women.
The Supertramp in this Lush Kitchen Subscription box is the regular 250g Medium size.
I would recommend and would buy another one if i had the chance.
Lush introduced Almond Blossom into their regular line on Jan 23, 2020. Its made in a new sulphate free formula.
Its made in the same scent as the Christmas 2019 body lotion ‘Snowflake’. Its primary ingredient is almond essential oil.
I don’t like this Almond Blossom shower gel as much as i love the Snowflake lotion. The shower gel smells much weaker to me, and isn’t sweet at all. Most people are telling me that their Almond Blossom shower gel is so sweet and strong it makes them sick. I guess mine is so fifferent due to the handmade nature of Lush products.
“The delicate blossoms of spring have been reimagined as a softening shower gel enriched with almond milk and the scent of sweet marzipan. A triple dose of almond comes courtesy of Fair Trade almond oil, almond milk and almond essential oil and is rounded off with the woody warmth of sandalwood and sweet benzoin. Sulphate-free, this creates a gentle lather suitable for all skins.
You’ll love this if you like:
– Sweet marzipan treats.
–Cherry Blossombubble bar orCookie Doughlip scrub.
– Gentle, soothing showers to calm skin and leave it feeling soft.
– Almond milk is both softening and moisturising on your skin, helping to protect it from the elements.
– Fair Trade almond oil not only softens and moisturises your skin, it also gives the Palestinian farmers who grow and harvest the almonds a steady income.
– Rose water calms and balances your skin, helping to alleviate redness and irritation.
– This shower gel is extra gentle, made with a new sulphate-free and palm-free formula. Let us know what you think firstname.lastname@example.org.”
5 out of 5 rating. See my demo, description & review video below.
Oh my goodness. This is a wow product. The minute i slathered this on in the shower i knew i was in love.
Lush has made a soap, smoothie rhoulade, bubble bar, lotion, spray perfume, perfume oil, shower jelly, reusable bubble bar, and now finally a shower gel. Although its cdrtainly more like a shower cream because its so thick and decadent.
Everything that we love about yog nog is in this shower gel. The sweet, caramely richness was dying to be in this form so we could rub it all over ourselves. It FEELS so lushious on the skin. The scent is nice and strong and true to form.
Perfect yummy goodness.
And even better its a shimmery gold color!
Thank you Lush ❤️
This might be my favorite Christmas product this year.
Make sure you get the biggest bottle you can.
Oh…i also understand there is going to be a solid (naked) packageless version of this too!
This is one of six exclusive shower gels that Lush.co.uk made ‘just because’ from community favorite bath bombs
Honestly, This is the shower gel i was the least excited about. Ive seen sex bomb in one form or another for 17 years. *yawn*
However, i was in for a surprise when i used this for the first time.
Firstly, it has this quite unexpected pink shimmer to it. SO pretty. The bath bomb that this shower gel was named after doesnt have any glitter nor shimmer so this was a pleasant surprise. its not glitter like in Intergalactic shower gel, this is *shimmer*, more subtle than glitter. Beautiful. I just keep gazing at it in the light.
Secondly, the scent isn’t as complex as rhe bsth bomb scent. That said-this is what i could call a classically ‘pretty’ scent. Its feminine and floral. Having rose, and jasmine florals. The herbaceousness of the sage is kind of missing, and the ylang ylang isnt coming across at all to me but….i dont care because this floral shower gel scent has great ‘throw’. Its not a sweet scent. Just floral.
And more importantly two hours after my shower im getting compliments about how i smell at the grocery store, and from my husband. He said it smells sexy.
Lush made six shower gels from six popular bath bombs. Intergalactic being one of the six.
The bath bomb is very popular because of its looks and its scent. Its cobalt blue and full of
Like a planet, in space, amongst the sparkly stars.
The bath bomb is sweet, minty, woody and citrussy. However, the shower gel loses some of its sweetness, and its woodiness in the translation. So the shower gel is minty and herbal with a jint of grapefruit. Not as sweet though, and not as layered in scent.
But nice smelling nonetheless. ❤️
In this short video clipi show the gels consistency by pouring it in a bowl.
I am very excited that Lush included Guardian of the Forest in their newest ‘we’re making shower gels of your favorite bath bombs just because’.
As i state in my video i think of GOTF as a new classic Lush green scent. Its both deep green but also bright with cypress.
Its a translucent gel. I was somewhat disppointed that it doesnt have glitter since the bath bomb has emerald green glitter but its not a huge deal because im just glad to have a nice green smelling shower gel to enjoy!
It smells like I’m in a forest or a fairy glade only not quite as woody as the bath bomb.
Rosewood, oakmoss, cypress, and lime.
The gel is nice and thick and it lathers up nicely on my skin.
Its such a soothing, grounding scent.
“The forest is alive. Can you hear the trees whispering the secrets of the earth to you? They beckon you onward. Feel the carpet of cool, thick moss beneath your bare feet as citrus sunlight breaks through the trees ahead, gilding the world in dappled gold and green. Follow the footsteps of a mysterious creature and emerge into a clearing, a trickling waterfall in a glade of rosewood and cypress – the heart of the forest. Let the ethereal tranquility surround you as you step beneath the water, earthy oakmoss and cleansing lime washing away any trace of the world beyond. It’s just you and the trees.”
As i describe in my video below, it tastes more like a genersl bakery goodness as this lip scrub is made with almond, vanilla, hazelnut and cocoa.
Its nice consistency makes it easier to appky than some lush lip scrubs because it adheres to your finger better so youre able to pack it on your lips easier. It hold together more because there is extra moisturizing goodies in here.
Here is my demo and review of it. I hope it helps decide if you do or don’t want to purchase it. 🙂
“If you’re a fan of getting your hand stuck in the cookie jar, get your fingers stuck into this cocoa and vanilla lip scrub! Polish your pout to absolute perfection with a combination of course granulated sugar and superfine sea salt. An intriguing blend of vanilla, almond essential oil, carob and fir balsam creates a mouthwatering baked goods flavour that really takes the biscuit. You’ll go nuts for the blend of shea butter, toasted hazelnut and pistachio oils that all work wonders to make your lips feel hydrated and protected while creating the buttery biscuit base of this lip-smacking treat.”
There are one or two other products that arent in this photo.
All the avocado co wash products made by Lush over the tears and currently are listed below in order of the originating product at the top of the list.
Avocado Co Wash hair conditioner
Avocado Co Wash shower gel. This is a thick shower gel.
Avocado Co Wash body lotion
Melusine exclusive, limited edition bath bomb
Avocado Co Wash exclusive uk body spray
Avocado Co Wash naked shower cream
I’m also checking to make sure that one of the Lush 2018 ‘bauble melts’ isnt avocado Co Wash scented.
Its a very sour lime scent with a nice sweet note in it. It’s quite a big burst of a limey fragrance made with sweet, fruity bergamot oil, fragrant incense-y yet citrussy frankincense (olibanum), and the lemony litsea cubeba herb.
There is the addition of avocado, which is moisturizing and softening for skin and hair.
There is rosemary, nettle, vinegar and lavender flower in the conditioner.
American Cream is a vanilla based scent which also has clary sage, and lavender as its scent components. The hair conditioner added strawberry. The other American Cream products have strawberry in them…but….American Cream products do not smell like strawberry. It’s made with strawberry, it’s not strawberry scented. And in the perfumery industry there IS a difference between those two sentences. :-)I like to make that clear, so that people won’t spend their hard earned money on something that they think will be strawberry scented, only to be disappointed when it’s not.
And rest assured Lush doesn’t claim the American cream scent smells like strawberry either. I know because I’ve talked the the owner of lush about this very thing.
Now, onto what it DOES smell like, to most people, including myself. It smells like creamy vanilla, with a light whiff of herbal clary sage and a pinch of herb-y lavender.
Below i’ll list what is shown and what isn’t shown in my photo above.
From newest to oldest.
American Cream body conditioner (potted and solid)
This is the long awaited (if youre an OG Lushie) Cinders shower gel.
Many Lushies have been wsiting for a shower gel of Cinders since lush first introduced their Cinders bath bomb during holidays past.
The Cinders bath bomb (and later – uk forum perfume that i bought on the forum) has a base of orange oil and cinnamon leaf.
This shower gel however, adds some extra pumpkin pie spices that were not in the original. Alspice, nutmeg, clove, and pumpkin puree!
So itslike a combination of orange and pumpkin pie. Quite different.
Im surprised this isnt called a shower cream since it has extra moisturizing properties like almond oil and pumpkin seed oil.
I like the orange color for Fall. And i like that Lush added the obligatory American spice mix.
The consistency is a nice medium-thick.
The scent doesnt partcularly last on the skin.
I would drfinitely enjoy using the large bottle i have and the naked Cinders shower gel also, but i dont know that id care to buybanothrr bottle. Thsts why i rate Cinders shower gel a 4 out of 5 rating.
Here is a 7 minute close up sink demo i recorded of Cinders shower gel.
Naked shower gel for Mothers day. See my sink demo and review video below!
Antiope is the name of the Amazonian in ‘Wonder Woman’.
this scent is earthy and orangey. It gets even better smelling when you use it. Initially, the clay gives a strange note to the fragrance, but as you use it the orangey scent comes out and combined with the fresh, calming scent of the bentonite clay.
