Roses are red, violets suit you

Sink into the lilac-hued waters of this floral classic. Posies of violet and spicy clove fragrance and soften your skin. The Ancient Greeks used violets in love potions and considered it a symbol of fertility and love – why not be seduced by this sweet, purple bath?

You’ll love this if you like:

– Swirly purple-hued baths that smell like violet flavoured sweets.

– The scent of Daddy-O shampoo, Sugar Daddy-O solid conditioner, or Kerbside Violet perfume. – Taking time to appreciate the small, fleeting moments in life.

Benefits:

– Violet leaf has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic effects on the skin.

– The scent of violets help to settle your mood and mind, aiding restful sleep.

– Ylang ylang oil helps to reassure and uplift, leaving you feeling happy and carefree.

How to use: Crumble under running water to fill your bath with purple rain and fluffy white bubbles. How to store: Keep in a cool, dry place to keep this potent bubble bar ultra-violet.

The classic spicy “Bathos” bubble bar gives great looking, deep purple water. It has the strong scent of sweet violets and spicy cloves. Barthes is VERY fragrant.  There’s also a teeny bit of dark green glitter on the top. This bubble bar can stand alone without being combined with anything, however, if one wanted a violet theme you could use a violety “Ne Worry Pas” ballistic, wash my hair with the violet smelling “Daddyo”, rub some “Choco La La” massage bar on, and condition my hair with “Retread”.

Sometimes I like to go the “all purple” route,  too and have Bathos with a Lush Jingle Spells  bath bomb or a Lush Blackberry Bomb.

By the way, here’s a picture of a Bathos that is 5 years old. The dates on the wrapper there http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y181/lush-a-lot/lush%20products/Lushbatho1.jpg I found it at the bottom of one of my lush tupperware tubs.

Lush made a liquid Bathos bath foam previous to it becoming this purple bubble bar slice. It was a green bath foam, not purple like the bubble bar. Here’s a picture of the Bathos Bath Foam: http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y181/lush-a-lot/LushBathosbathfoamsml-1.jpg

Here’s a demo video i made

We make it with some of most sensual, relaxing essential oils on the planet, including lots of violet leaf which is reputed to help people remember why they got together in the first place. Don’t put one of these in the bath in the morning on a workday. Save it for later.

Purple Loosestrife

5 out of 5 rating. See my recorded sink demo below!

Here’s what the gold in the middle looks like

these new soaps are made in a different way. The designs are made via 3D laser cutting. Also, these soaps are made to stand up so they’re easier to hold and easier to stand up and be seen in the shower or bath.

They have more fragrance to stay on the skin after you’ve washed, and they’re full of luxurious skin moisturizing oils and butters.

Also, they have a bit of bicarb in them for a foamy effect.

It’s a massage experience that will do all the work for you. Grab the bar, dim the lights, and tuca tuca! After the song inspired such raucous enthusiasm, it seemed almost absurd not to have a Tuca Tuca Massage Bar to get people touching each other.

2006 Review: What a lovely smelling ballistic. It’s so violet-y and pretty but not too strong a violet like in Bathos, but it’s not a disappearing scent either, just right. I love the shiny satin-like purple stuff in the middle, great color. It made kind of a sandy colored water which was odd, but if you combine this with a Bathos bubble bar which is purple, and has violet oil in it, that would be the best. Maybe wash you hair with some violet-y Lush DaddyO shampoo, after bath a dusting of Flower Market dusting powder and a light spritz of Lush “V” perfume should send you on your way to Violet Valhalla. I think this could be a classic ballistic. I can see this staying ballistic around for awhile. Pretty.

2015 Review:  I like this as much as i liked it when it came out originally.  It’s a milky violet and it’s a slow, silent fizzer, it’s just lovely. A milky color with the little purple dot of color adding a last minute drop of color in the middle of all the creamy white color.

Lush 2006 description: You can just imagine the looks on the faces of all the Lush ballistic makers when they found out that as well as stirring the mixture, scooping it out and putting it into the two halves of the mold, that they also had to put in a miniscule magic grotto into each one! Fortunately, as Ne Worry Pas is scented with soothing bergamot oil and jasmine essential oils they’ll be smiling despite themselves. The plan is this: take your Ne Worry Pas, whisper your worries into the grotto, then let them fizz away into the milky (soya) bath water. After a lovely refreshing bath, they’ll disappear down the plughole forever!

Here’s a video i made of what Ne Worry Pas looks like in the tub for you 🙂

Violet, Patchouli, Rose, Thyme.

A Reusable bubble bar in a divining pendulum shape. How cool this idea. I think this is one of my favorite new products.  It’s purple, but covered in a Coppery shimmer. It smells of lovely violet floral with a touch of thyme and patchouli.  It mostly smells of violet.

 

Here’s a youtube video i made of what the Divination reusable bubble bar looks like in the bath.
