Lush Review: Ceylon Tea Bath Cocktail

A bubbly, frothy melon-colored bath.  This was a belated birthday treat to myself.  I was occupied in a good way with celebrations with family and the completion of a school course.  I didn’t get a chance to enjoy this bath cocktail until yesterday.

1 Luverly Bath Ballistic: A mild floral.  My first guess was chamomile; which is incorrect.

  • Ylang ylang oil
  • Jasmine absolute
  • Gardenia extract
  • Straw flowers

1 Auntie Pamela Bubble Bar: A very spicy sweet fragrance; very cinnamon.  Judging from the ingredients, it must have been stored next to a bubble bar made of cinnamon or the like.  So don’t go solely by my account.  I love this bubble bar enough to re-purchase for a future bath cocktail.  I threw this into the bathwater and it melted in no time.  I didn’t even have to crumble it!  The bathwater was quite warm though; maybe this helped?

  • Chamomile powder
  • Rose absolute
  • Ylang ylang oil
  • Vanilla absolute
  • Rose petals
  • Red golden glitter
  • Gardenia extract

1/2 MMM Melting Marshmallow Moments Bath Melt: Sweet floral scent.  Just in case you’re wondering, it’s very easily crumbled under running water.

  • almond oil
  • chamomile powder
  • marigold powder
  • synthetic musk

A Ring of Roses Buttercream Soap: A lovely gently floral fragranced soap.  I always worry about anything floral because I really dislike the scent of lavender (smells too medicinal and herbal) and geraniums (smells like burnt plastic).  I know lavender is supposed to be calming, so it’s unfortunate that I dislike that scent.  I do think dried lavender looks gorgeous in a clay vase.  RR was to my relief nicely scented and it left my skin moisturized.  For someone with normal or combo skin, many Lush melts and soaps make post-bath lotion unnecessary. You can see from the list below that it’s jam-packed with lots of goodness.

  • Larkspur
  • Honeysuckle
  • Marigold & cornflower infusion
  • Rapeseed, sunflower, coconut, & evening primrose oils
  • Lemon & sweet orange oils
  • Rose absolute
  • Rose petals

Lush Review: The Baker’s Bath Cocktail

How can I describe this???  I sweet scented peanut buttery bath which turned from a gorgeous teal to a milky tan after I added the Happy Blooming Bath Melt.  I have more Fizzbanger and will probably try it with my leftover half of

1 Fizzbanger Bath Ballistic: Candy sweet, mildly floral. Not sure if it reminded me of anything in particular.  I’m sorry I can’t be more specific about the scent at this time.  Overall it’s a great bath ballistic which could be used in combination with many Lush bubble bars and bath melts.

  • Fizzy candy
  • Cinnamon leaf oil
  • Petigrain oil
  • Ylang ylang oil
  • Gardenia extract

1 Auntie Pamela Massage Bar: The scent reminded me of peanut butter brittle but not exactly.  It’s not what I really expected but that’s not a bad thing =).

  • Chamomile powder
  • Rose absolute
  • Ylang ylang oil
  • Vanilla absolute
  • Rose petals
  • Red golden glitter
  • Gardenia extract

1/3 Happy Blooming Bath Melt: Sweet scent which does remind me of candy cherries.

  • Passionflower
  • Dried cherries
  • Fresh passion fruit
  • Ylang ylang oil

*Recommended soap bars: Honey I Washed the Kids or Porridge Soap.  I used Miranda Soap only because it was the only one in my bath room.  I keep my Lush (in a plastic container) in another room now to keep them better preserved.
