B Electro shower gel

This was a perfume at the Lush store in london called “B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful. It was always one of my favorite perfumes sold at B Never boutique from 2005-2008.  There was a whole lin eof products with this scent.  I have pics of them all in my section here on my blog called “B Never too busy to be beautiful’.

Here’s a 15 second video i made with my b electro to show consistency, etc.

Later, Lush made a soap in the “B” scent.  It was a bright yellow color and it was shaped like the sun.  Lush called this soap “B Electro”.  a couple of years alter, Lush made a shower gel for forum members only with the scent of our lovely B scent.  Lush made our requested shower gel with the same color as the b electro soap, and now we have this shower gel today 🙂

Ingredients: Water, Rose Water, Fennel Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Rose Absolute,  Cold Pressed,  Jojoba Oil.

 

Lemon Days and Ginger Beer

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Lemon Peel, Powdered Ginger, Perfume, Ginger Oil,  Mimosa Absolute, Red Mandarin Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Geranium Oil , Bergamot Oil, Gardenia Extract , Colour 19140.

Review: This ballistic was discontinued about as quickly as it came out. Loads of people liked it on the forum but I guess it just didn’t sell at all and was pulled a few months after introduction. It smells like the perfume Ginger, highly floral rose but it has a strong lemony top note also. I wouldn’t normally like this combo but Lush also includes Sandalwood, Mimosa (like is in 17 Cherry Tree Lane soap and Sakura ballistic) , and also some red mandarin oil. So while i don’t hate it, i don’t love it either. It’s quite strong when fresh and the red mandarin orange oil and sandalwood is covered up by the fresh ginger and lemon scent, but when this ballistic mellows a bit it’s lovely. It makes bright yellow water.  3 stars.

The Happy Pill

Video below

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid,Perfume, Olive Oil, Hemp Oil , Grapefruit Oil, Bergamot Oil, Frankincense Oil , Lemon Oil , Orange Flower Absolute, Mandarin Oil.

 

Review: This is quite simply, the best ballistic I’ve ever tried from Lush If I’m not mistaken. I love the combo of the two Lush products together.  Lush doesn’t do this combining very often.  Lush “Fun with a twist” fun bar comes to mind.

This bath bomb is a slooooow fizzer which is nice because it lasts the whole bath. And it’s more of a foamer than a fizzer.

The combination of the lovely orange “The Olive Branch” scented side, and the sunny yellow “Happy Hippy” grapefruit scented side is a FABULOUS scent.

It was actually softening to my skin. I dont’ know, not softening in a “Butterball” way, but in a “bicarbonate” way. Absolutely lovely.

The scent stayed on my skin through the next day.

Noriko with Lush had created this one.

 

2006 Lush Times description: New shape, new concept, two of our favorite fragrances combined by Noriko to bring a bit of sunshine to gloomy days. Pop a Happy Pill to cheer yourself up, but pop it in the bath instead of a glass of water. The orange side is the mandarin fragrance of Olive Branch and the yellow side is our gloriously grapefruity Happy Hippy. It’ll keep you going until the spring flowers show their smiling faces.

Yuzu and Cocoa


The yuzu is a citrus fruit and plant originating in East Asia. It is believed to be a hybrid of sour mandarin and Ichang papeda. WikipediaFotolia_49130893_Subscription_Monthly_XXLThis opaque yellow shower cream has the same beautiful, lightly fruity/powdery cocoa fragrance as in their in store ‘Yuzu and Cocoa’ bubble bar (it looks like a macaron), which is the same color as the fruit itself as you can see in the photo above.

I LOVE this fragrance. As I understand it, Lush doesn’t actually use the fruit yuzu in here.  Instead they use a combination of fruits to attain a Yuzu similarity.   Regardless of whether there is yuzu fruit in this or not, I love the scent.  The cocoa in this is like a light whiff of cocoa. It’s as if i’m smelling a container of powdered cocoa, mixed with the fruity yuzu. It’s wonderful.  This and Lord of Misrule are my top fave shower gels/creams from Lush Oxford Street.

In my shower gel rotation it’s yuzu and cocoa that remains a constant presence in my shower, never leaving while I rotate two others, so that I always have three shower gels in my shower. I rotate shower gels often as I have a ridiculous amount of shower gels.

Here’s a video i made showing this shower cream in more detail.

Christmas Eve bubble bar

 

Ingredients:  Perfume,  Irish Moss Powder, Jasmine Absolute Ylang Ylang Oil , Gardenia Extract  Iridescent Glitter 

Lush Times: The design was created by our Newcastle shop manager who wanted a bubble bar to perk her up in preparation for her night down the “toon”. She put a lovely yellow crescent moon on top of a blue sky because in Newcastle when the moon is shining, it’s time to go out! For most people though, the moon means sleepy time. Simon Constantine created a beautifully feminine jasmine and ylang ylang perfume, which is fantastic for calming and relaxing you and inspiring confidønce. On Christmas Eve children find it difficult to sleep while Father Christmas could be flying around in his sleigh delivering presents and they don’t want to miss him. Use one to send them to sleep.

These are the other lush products that have the same exact scent made with the same ingredients.

 

Lush made a Christmas 2014 bath bomb called “Northern Lights”.  It has the scent of this Christmas Eve bubble bar. The both together are gorgeous.

Skydancer bath bomb

See my video below of Skydancer in the tub,

Profits from each and every one of these soft floral and liquorice-scented bath bombs will help fund equipment to satellite tag many endangered hen harrier chicks born in the coming years.

With bergamot, Sicilian lemon and cinnamon leaf oils, this bath bomb will take you under its wing and fight wildlife crime in one clean sweep.

Northern Lights soap

Ingredients: Water, Rapeseed Oil and Coconut Oil, Perfume,Pine Needle Oil ,Cypress Oil, Lime Oil,

Even though this soap is called “Northern Lights”, it doesn’t share the scent with the beautiful long, purple bath bomb of the same name from a couple of Christmases ago.   This soap has pine, cypress and lime.  I absolutely love the scent of this soap.

Lush Times:  We have an ongoing obsession, here at Lush, with the Northern Lights.  Many a trip has been taken, but rarely have they been observed. Meaning they have become something of a holy grail for us.

So yet again, we are left trying to recreate them in soap, rather than watch them in real life. But it does mean that you get amazing wonderful soaps from us.

This soap was made by Wesley, who perfectly matched the colours of the auroras he watched on the internet, and then found a special way to pour the soap to represent the natural light show.

Then Pia, our trainee perfumer from Finland, came up with an electric, fresh pine and lime perfume to finish off Wesley’s work.  Together they will make you feel like you are in the crisp climes of the arctic circle, with nature’s amazing light show performing about you.

Who said soap was boring?

Harvey

 

Perfume, Carrot Oil, Bergamot Oil Spearmint Oil  Patchouli Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Orange Oil, Gardenia Extract, Candy Nose

Review: The patchouli and the sweetish carrot oil of Harvey’s scent reminds me of the Lush  ‘Lord of Misrule’ scent, except Harvey isn’t spicy and doesn’t have black pepper like Lord of Misrule.   Harvey is a fast fizzer. Harvey was a limited time only ballistic for Spring 2002 that Lush remade later on once as well.  He’s sought after still because he’s so darn cute and because it’s such a different and cheery, beautiful and yummy scent. He’s a lovely pale Easter egg yellow color and in the shape of a big bunny face with big funny teeth. Minty and perfumey with a little orange oil in it as well. This is wonderfully Spring like. Like sunshine.  This one was best by itself in my opinion.  Makes yellow water.

Lush 2004 Descrption: Not just the image of an Easter bunny, Harvey bath bomb is in honour of the son of LUSH’s Brighton shop manager. He, in turn, took his moniker from the James Stewart film classic., Harvey. Paws for thought – LUSH has added a helping of carrot oil because it’s good for bunnies!

Here’s my video of Harvey
