Lush Review: Candy Sweet Orange Bath Cocktail

This one is from last night. An uplifting sweet and floral mix.  A really fun feminine bath.  Who could ask for more?

1 Hot Java Bath Ballistic: I messaged a Lush guru regarding her big order from Lush England.  She claimed the shipping wasn’t too bad but I beg to differ.  This is the last time I will order from England.  I’ve been finding out that with patience, many new release UK Lush products will eventually be made available in the U.S. within a couple of months.  We are always a bit behind but I think paying for high shipping fees is absurd and totally not worth it.  As for HJ, I really liked this bath bomb.  Fast fizz.  The bath water turned a cheerful bright tangerine with pieces of cinnamon sticks floating around.

  • Ginger & cinnamon powders
  • Ginger, coriander, & juniper essential oils

1 Marzibain Bubble Bar: Created sweet fluffy white bubbles.  I decided to use the entire bar since I wanted more bubbles.  Even so, the bubbles were minimal.

  • Cassie absolute
  • Rose absolute
  • Whole almond (decoration)

1/3 Happy Blooming Bath Melt: Cherry sweet.  Would definitely re-purchase.  I wish Lush came out with more bath melts.  I feel like what they are offering in the bath melt section is so limited when compared to their other bath product categories.

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

A Ring of Roses 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 bath cocktails are either as good as or better than going to the spa.  One Lush bath is definitely a tiny fraction of what a spa treatment would cost.  I also dislike running to keep appointments; that’s very stressful to me.  These pampering baths could be drawn at any time you wish.  I admit they aren’t a complete substitute for massages.  They can be considered as something you could enjoy in-between spa treatments.

I would love to try some of your Lush bath cocktail recipes!  Please add your comment =)
