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
- 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.
- 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 =)
