Lush Review: Post-Tax Prep Bath Cocktail

This bath cocktail was a welcome rest for a tired mind!  A beautiful mauvy pink, sweet scented bath.  The flower petals made me feel like I was bathing in a tea infusion =).  Here is what you will need to recreate this bath:

1 Calavera Bath Ballistic: Large bath ballistic which is sweet and citrusy with mild floral accents.

  • Lime oil
  • Neroli oil
  • Marigold petals

 

1/2 The Comforter Bubble Bar: Sweetart scented.  I absolutely love it.  Really easily crumbled under running water or within a plastic baggy.  Fast melt within water.

  • bergamot oil
  • cassis absolute (fruity blackcurrant fragrance)
  • cypress oil

 

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: Rock Star Soap

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

  • 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.

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


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


*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.

Lush Review: Space Girl Bath Cocktail

A sweet scented, fun, bright lilac colored bath this time.  To re-create it, use the following…

1 Space Girl Bath Bomb: Fast fizz.  Pretty and mildly sweet florally scent.

  • Grapefruit oil
  • Bergamot oil
  • Almond oil
  • Fizzy candy

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

  • Almond oil
  • Vanilla absolute
  • Candy flowers

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

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

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

Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Candy Baby Body 3-In-1 Wash for Shower, Bubble Bath & Hair: I was very disappointed in the Candy Baby Body Glimmer Swirl Cream for being nearly scentless that I almost didn’t give the rest of the Beauty Rush line a chance.  I’m glad the 3-in-1 was nothing like its body cream.  I wouldn’t describe my hair as totally super soft after-wash but at least it wasn’t as tough as bricks like some other products will do.  Give this a product a try =).  If there’s a travel-sized, definitely snag it!
