Bath Treatments -LUSH -Under the umbrella tree bath bomb

on 12/8/2018 2:58:00 PM

Wowzer. Finally one I really liked.

This is a small bath bomb in comparison to others. Shaped like a tree and turns the water a mild green. No swirls, fizzing, popping, but I don't personally care for those.

It has the Breath of God fragrance. I've had a shower card with the scent and that didn't impress me, but this sure did. It is incensy, resiny, and very woodsy. Think buddhist temple in the Himalayas. But wait- it's Buddhist temple meets grandfather's barbershop. Has a hint of aftershave or shaving cream our granddads used. Takes a specific person perhaps, but damn I love it. I found it very soothing and thought it really was like the product description. Often I'd buy scents labelled as woodsy only to not get anything woodsy at all, more like citrus. This lived up to expectations and if the B.O.G. perfume is anything like this it's to die for.

It could be considered masculine by some, so probably not great for lovers of sweet candy and florals. I love that it smells like a man who'd spent hours in a forest or wood cabin, and maybe grandpa because who doesn't miss grandpa.

Doesn't feel nourishing, but not drying either. It felt like a detox bath tbh, but I did use very hot water so maybe that's why. It has a relaxing feel overall, and comforting without being anything like a gourmand smell and without butters in the formula. No slip or staining in the tub.

I knocked off lippies because the scent is weak, but it's at least much more there than my other recent lush purchases. For the price it's not worth it to me, but would be if wherever you're buying them the scent still packs a proper Lush punch. If so, and you like woodsy, meditative shaving cream (or are buying for an outdoorsy male), I recommend.



Gels/Soaps -LUSH -Golden Pear Soap

I got a free sample after christmas, and I'm so happy they did! This soap in general came out as a surprise. I don't tend to like most of Lush's bar soaps because they don't lather very well and therefore finish quickly, but this didn't do that at all! It also has a crazy amount of butters, so it's nice and moisturising, but also doesn't leave a film on the skin. As someone who moisturises often due to eczema and sometimes feels a little sticky, feeling clean is a must for me.

Smells lovely as well, a surprisingly gentle fragrance from Lush. I have repurchased, and will continue to do so!

Masks -LUSH -Cup O' Coffee Face & Body Mask

foto

My favourite mask of all time. I like to put this on right before I get into the shower, then rinse off in the shower. I also use it all over my body as an exfoliant, not just as a facial mask. It smells amazing, feels refreshing, and my skin is soft and smooth after! I went through my first tub so fast and I will 100% be repurchasing.


Bath Treatments -LUSH -Yog Nog Yule Log Bath Bomb

A christmasy ginger cake and butter scent. It's supposed to also have ylang ylang and clove oil but I couldn't smell any, and by now, you already know how the rest of the review goes. "I don't know what's happening with my 2018 purchases of bath bombs but they barely have a scent any more". I'm actually wondering whether the fact I live in a small town means the local lush store has poor product turnover and I really am getting old batches of everything. That would actually mean there's hope in buying them online and getting ones with the usual scent intensity. If lush has just overall changed the formula into a barely scented one than that's just tragic.

Bloggers have recommended cutting this bath bomb as it is very large, but i have been unable to do that with any bomb lately (due to weak fragrance again).

This bath bomb looks like cake, and the center is very soft and mushy like cookie dough. It doesnt melt right away. I ran it across my skin like a scrub and that at least helped me smell it. Really like the ginger in this. Unfortunately I also smelled something horrible when it was almost done dissolving, but thank god it didn't linger. It turns the bath a milky, buttery shade and consistentcy.

In fairness, it was easier to smell this than lord of misrule, but still, who wants to strain and cup bathwater in their hands and dunk their face into it and hover on the water surface with their nose to get a whiff of the scent?? Not me.

Lush baths used to have a magical scent that hovered above the bath and filled the bathroom and the next day when you got home from work you could still smell it from the entrance and the bathroom smelled amazing for days after. I would settle for less, but not for this little. Cheap supermarket buys are way above any bath bomb I bought at lush the past few months.

Again, might just be something to do with the local store but I'm not buying any more. I would recommend to those who, if they exist, are still getting normally fragranced lush products. With appropriate fragrance strength, this would be a very cozy winter bath bomb.

Super curious if my remaining three bombs will smell more but don't want to get my hopes high. Funny though, my face mask from lush smells intense and divine. Would love to know whether this is happening to others.


Shampoo -LUSH -Jason and the Argan Oil Solid Shampoo Bar

Having used a lot of Lush shampoo bars and always loving them, this one really took me by surprise. I bought it because of the amazing smell and the claims. However, this fell farrr short of my expectations. For reference, I have fine, smooth hair which normally shine beautifully after shampooing. However, after using this, i noticed that my hair was stringy and stuck together in clumps. The ends felt almost sticky and dry at the same time while my scalp was so oily, it looked like i haven't washed my hair in ages. To add to the disaster, i constantly had to clean my hairbrush because of build up that looked 'dusty'. This shampoo leaves a ton of residue on the hair and scalp and while i am not prone to dandruff, i can see how it would totally cause itchy scalp.
I went back to regular drugstore shampoo that my husband uses and it totally restored my hair to its usual feel and texture and my hairbrush no longer has that weird residue.
Too bad this was such a big fail because it smells sooo good. I will use it up as a body soap but will never repurchase again. I will go back to my tried and tested bars. ( HIWMY, Seanik, New)
