Lush Review: Tang Bath Cocktail

This bath cocktail is a small reward for all the recent organizational milestones reached so far and for the 5 big loads of laundry I did yesterday (quite exhausting).  Very Tang in color and scent (orange, citrusy).  This may seem rather strange, but the woodsiness of this bath also reminded me of pre-lit orange incense.  Here are the ingredients:

1 Donkey-Oaty Bath Bomb: Sweet floral.  Love that it’s in the shape of a Scottie dog.  Pink and gold tie-dye cuteness!  It’s a fragile bath bomb though.  Both mine arrived in broken bits but it was going into the bath anyway (just doesn’t make for the picture-perfect bath ballistic).

  • Ylang ylang flower infusion
  • Geranium oil
  • Tagetes oil
  • Gardenia extract

1 Gold Star Bubble Bar: Smells like lemon hard candy or Sprite pop with lemon.

  • Gardenia extract
  • Sandalwood oil
  • Frankincense oil
  • Golden stars
  • Golden edible lustre
  • Red golden glitter

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.  I do sense the musk in it.

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

*Recommended Soap: Sandstone soap or any of the lemon-based ones would be perfect.  I used Summer Pudding since it was still sitting in my soap dish.  Summer Pudding is also exfoliating with a delicious aroma of candied cherries.

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: Candy Fluff Bath Cocktail

I wasn’t expecting to take another Lush bath so soon but since my pink Easter egg didn’t survive the shipping journey so well and was looking a bit sad, I thought it was a good time to draw another pink themed bath…

1/3 Easter Egg (Pink) Bath Bomb: Sweet Candy Fluff scent reminding me of pink Peeps marshmallows.

1 Creamy Candy Bubble Bar: Smells really candy yummy =)

  • Almond oil
  • Vanilla absolute
  • Candy flowers

1/2 MMM Melting Marshmallow Moment: Sweet floral scent.  Creates white froth (though Lush says pink).  Easily crumbled under running water.  Slow dissolve on its own.

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

Rock Star Soap: Has a pink/cherry taffy scent which has really grown on me.  As an aside, it evokes for me happy memories of beach town summertime fun since taffy is a popularly sold candy in these places e.g. Wildwood NJ, Seaside Heights NJ- to name a couple.

  • Rapeseed oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Vanilla absolute

Lush Review: Absolute Delight Bath Cocktail

A welcome break after fulfilling all my daily obligations.  Every once in a while we need to pamper ourselves- a small reward for getting things done, especially the mundane or challenging stuff of life.

1 Absolute Jasmine Bath Bomb: Sweet and mildly floral. Fast fizz like most other bath ballistics. All the elements mixed to create a sheer pink bath.

  • Rose absolute
  • Bergamot oil
  • Geranium bourbon oil
  • Jasmine absolute
  • Sandalwood oil

1 Turbo Bubble Bar: Pretty to look at like a glittery stone.  Sweet and musky at once.

  • Jasmine absolute
  • Vetivert oil
  • Ylang ylang oil
  • Iridescent sparkles

1/2 MMM Melting Marshmallow Moment: Sweet floral scent.  Creates white froth (though Lush says pink).  Easily crumbled under running water.  Slow dissolve on its own.

  • marigold powder
  • synthetic musk

Lush Review: Night On The Town Prep Bath Cocktail

In stark comparison with the last bath I took, this bath was very pink, very feminine.  A very mild floral with perfect sweetness; a good balance between two different family of scents.  It reminded me of a taffy candy floral.  If mauvy pink had a scent, this would be it.  I almost used 1/3 of my Easter Egg- The Pink One but at the last moment I changed my mind and decided to save it for another type of bath (one less floral).   I almost used Think Pink Bath Bomb too except to my amazement I couldn’t find one.  I had convinced myself I had one in my drawer.  So I was lucky to find a great ballistic to go well with all the other components of this bath to create a nice recipe for you should you want to replicate it (which I urge you to do)…

1 Softy Ballistic: A very light floral scent but definitely rosey.

  • Lavender oil
  • Rose petals
  • Ylang ylang oil
  • Rose absolute
  • Orange essence

1 Flosty Glitter Bubble Bar: I was so supper excited to try this just because I loved Sunnyside so much.  I was surprised that the bath didn’t turn pearlescent because I thought it would be a pink version of Sunnyside.  I’m not going to complain because I really loved this bath a lot!

  • Vanilla absolute
  • Clary sage oil
  • Lavender oil
  • Pink glitter

1/2 MMM Melting Marshmallow Moment: Sweet floral scent.  Created a pink froth this time since I decided to let it break up on its own.  Just in case you’re wondering, it’s very easily crumbled under running water.

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

*Used during a recent shower; not during this bath:

Banana Moon Soap: This soap has a light banana scent as the name suggests.  I really like it.  If you are not a candy sweet scent fan or a floral scent fan than this may be for you =)  I’m glad that Lush provides samples of their products.  I believe that some of Lush’s products are so different scent-wise wet versus dry, so you really need to try it out for a little while before making up your mind.
