Quinquireme of Ninevah


Ingredients: vegetable soap, water, propylene glycol, coconut, sodium stearate, sodium lauryl sulphate, titanium dioxide, perfume, orange oil, benzoin, vanilla absolute

Review: QofN was the sort of precursor to the present ‘I Should Coco” soap by Lush. The difference is that this doesn’t have the scratchy, exfoliating dessicated coconut. This is a creamy soap that smells more of Lushious coconut than I Should Coco soap in my opinion. I’m not cazy about coconut, there are times when I hate coconut. So I’m picky about coconut scented products. But this Quinquireme of Ninevah soap adds oranfe which makes it more complex and lovely. is one I do indeed like to use. Not bad, being that it’s a coconut soap. I would think the majority of people would find this to be a 4 star soap.

Lush Times description: Q of N is a creamy, smooth cocnut scented soap made in 35 kg block with two rope handles so it can be carried with dignity to its destination within Lush shops. Inspired by the poem by John Masefield, in which he describes the Quinquereme’s cargo of precious oils and spices. Some of which we used in the soap’s coconut based perfume. We’ll cut you a 100 g slice from one of these precious cargoes to bring a hint of the exotic Middle East of times gone by to your very own wash basin.

All The Wild Things

5 out of 5 rating

See my demo video of this soap in my 3 minute video below.

This limited edition soap was made so that net proceeds from the sale of this goes towards animal rescue efforts due to the Australian Bush fires.

The soap was made in the Outback Mate soap scent, which is made with eucalyptus, peppermint and lemongrass.

I had bought two and i.left my package in my room and my whole room smelled wonderful!

They had these available for one day on the Lush Uk, and Lush USA websites before they sold out. Lush usa decided to make more so they could sell them again before they sold out again in one day.

We can only imagine the horror faced out in the Australian bush by those who are going out searching for animal survivors amongst the estimated billion creatures killed so far in the fires. In recognition of the overwhelming task faced by this informal Animal’s Emergency Service, we have made All The Wild Things soap. Net proceeds from this limited edition eucalyptus and lemongrass soap will go to animal rescue groups providing emergency first aid and rehabilitation as well as restoring the habitat where the wild things were. Grab one now online or visit your local Lush shop. Let the wild recovery start.

Snow Apple

5 out of 5 rating.

See my Lush Christmas soaps video below.

This is a new soap for Christmas, and Lush made this soap in the popular ‘So White’ bath bomb scent. The scent is made with orange flower and smells just like a tart green apple! The fragrance actually makes my mouth water.

Its green with silver snow covering it, and it has a leaf on it just like a fresh picked apple. Its not conditioning. The scent is nice and strong and leaves a marvelous fresh scent of crisp apples on my skin.

One of my top favorites this Christmas!

Snow Fairy soap 2019

5 out of 5 rating.

See my Christmas soaps video below.

This year Snow Fairy soap looks very different. Its a snow flake! I love this new look from last years glittery Snow Fairy cold pressed soap.

Also different this year is the addotion of lime oil. This doesnt change the snow fairy scent it just makes it brighter.

Historically Snow Fairy isnt my favorite Lush scent. I found it kind of clyingly sweet. So the addition of lime makes it smell much nicer to my nose.

It seems to be a bit more conditioning than most of the other christmas soaps with the exception of butterbear.

See my video showing and describing each soap in detail. I forgot Satsuma and Golden Pear which i have already reviewed here on my blog on their seperate pages. Both of those have a 5 out of 5 star rating.

Good Day Sunshine soap

3.5/4.0 out of 5 rating. See my sink demo and review video below.

Lush introduced this and other soaps online on their up site first and today this Good Day Sunshine and also Michelle Ma Belle soap are available in the U.S.

“Carved like an engraved offering to a Mayan Sun God, this vibrantly bright and beaming citrus-scented soap presents a thick crown of golden yellow bath bomb mix, which when used for the first time kisses your skin with fizzing foam, welcomed like warm rays on a summer’s day. The dazzling orange, vegan aquafaba base offers notes of sparkling lemon myrtle, zesty lime and uplifting neroli to flip your mood sunny side up, while exfoliating chia seeds offer a delicate polish that leaves skin feeling soft and bright enough to rival the sun. “

It doesn’t foam up as it says on the website. Lush has added bath bomb mixture to the soap so that it produces a nice shower bomb type of foam, but I couldn’t get either soap to foam up when I used them at the sink nor in the shower.

Regardless, I like using the soap.

It’s got the same scent as the ‘Brightside” bubble bar.
