Lush Review: Cheer Up! Bath Cocktail

After a disappointing end result of Project Runway: Season 9 (and the elimination of my favored designer, Fallene Wells), I decided a Lush bath cocktail was in order though it was very late.  I’ve had the ingredients laid out since before vacation and boy did my feet need a good pumice scrub (which I saved for last)!  I would describe this as a slow to dissolve, very mild floral scented bath with sweetness reminiscent of white chrysanthemum tea with honey.  Also don’t be alarmed that the bath will look a little olivine murky; what it lacks in looks, it readily makes up in being moisturizing.

1 Happy Pill Bath Bomb: Sweet and citrusy. Slow fizz.  It’s one of Lush’s largest bath ballistics.  I could have used just half of it.

  • Olive Oil
  • Hemp Oil
  • Grapefruit Oil
  • Bergamot Oil
  • Frankincense Oil
  • Lemon Oil
  • Orange Flower Absolute
  • Mandarin Oil
  • Gardenia Extract


1 Dorothy Bubble Bar: Very mild floral.  Made me think of chamomile and lightly scented florals in general.

  • Ylang ylang oil
  • Orange flower
  • Gardenia extract

 


1/2 Floating Island Bath Melt: Mildly sweet floral scent.  Made the bath very moisturizing.  I mean, what bath melt doesn’t?  This one is a slow froth.  I’ve used this bath melt a few times already but now its scent reminds me of a Connecticut Muffin Angel Cake muffin =)

  • Almond oil
  • Sandlewood oil
  • Lemon oil

*Recommended Soap: Sandstone Soap (citrus scent, exfoliant)

I used Summer Pudding (exfoliant) soap since it was right in front of me.  Summer Pudding has a candy cherry scent.
