Lush Review: Nostalgic Bath Cocktail

Sometimes I feel like Des Esseintes, Joris-Karl Huymans’ main character in Against Nature, striving to create a small world of Lush decadence whenever I can…  Tonight’s bath cocktail was white and frothy with a delicate fresh scent, reminding me of 7UP and Sprite soda pops which I would gladly consume during those boring adult dinner parties my parents and grandparents would drag me to.  Therefore, the “nostalgic” part of this post’s title.  Resting my face gently against Amandopondo’s busily popping bubbles, the world began to disappear and for once, my mind was a terrific blank.  Now it’s your turn to replicate this lovely bath and retreat into your own microcosm…

1 Sakura Bath Bomb: Sweet floral; very gently scented with quick fizz action.  Initially this bath ballistic fizzed a very light pink.  I’m not sure if I necessarily sense cherry blossoms, but it sounds good to me =)

  • Lemon oil
  • Mimosa absolute
  • Orange absolute
  • Jasmine absolute
  • Gardenia extract

1 Amandopondo Bubble Bar: Mild floral scent.  I used an organza sachet to get the most out of my bubble bar by running it under the water spout.  Using a sachet or nylon stocking also does the double duty of collecting unwanted particles from landing into your drain.  I haven’t used this idea for bath bombs such as Street Party (or anything that contains e.g. chunky glitter but it may be worth a try).

  • Rose bud
  • Lemon oil
  • Orange oil
  • Rose absolute

1/2 Floating Island Bath Melt: Mildly sweet floral scent.  I crumbled this into the bath water.  It’s normally a slow froth on its own.  A nice combination with all the other elements of this bath.

  • Almond oil
  • Sandlewood oil
  • Lemon oil

Sandstone Soap: As much as I love this lemony scent (similar to the scent of moist towelette packets which some restaurants may provide at the end of your meal), I probably will not use it with another bath.  This soap leaves sediment deposits and makes soaking uncomfortable.  The sediments are similar to harder types of beach sand (definitely not Pink Palace beach sand).  This soap is best used during a shower and is an excellent exfoliant. Unlike the picture shown, my Sandstone had sand throughout.

  • Sand
  • Rapeseed oil
  • Sunflower oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Litsea cubeba oil
  • Coriander oil
  • Gardenia extract

I used Trichomania Solid Shampoo and Jungle Solid Conditioner, as usual.

This is a great bath if you want to try Lush products which are gently fragranced or if you dislike berry candy scents.
