I agree with Proflady, it's nice, not near as strong as the fragrance. But it doesn't stand out with me either. It's not near as moisturizing as most of their bombs/ballistics. I had to really scrub to get the orange off my tub too. My hubby won't go near the downstairs bathroom when I've used the Karma fragrance or soap, but does like the mild scent left on my skin from the bath bomb.
Okay, LUSH has done it again. This will definitely become a staple of mine. I have fine, dark blonde color treated hair and was absolutely amazed. I was afraid the red henna would really turn my hair a horrible color because of the coloring, but not a problem. My hair is shiny, has just the slightest highlights of red and brown and my color has been enhanced even more! All this without making it feel greasy and it didn't weigh my hair down and make it flat! YEAHHHHH!!!! I washed it out with the Plantational Shampoo bar and I in LUSH....
This was like bathing in Bermuda or Hawaii. The water turns that clear deep blue shade. The lemon and lavendar don't clash and smell wonderful. The sea salt and seaweed (which is throughout the tub) makes your skin soft. The smell is wonderful. If you want less of a clean up, I found the seaweed easily dissolves so take a handful and rub it into your skin (great for shaving). Makes less to clean up and does wonders for the skin!

At first I was disappointed. The Lavendar isn't very strong while soaking and I was worried it was going to take me forever to get the tiny lavendar seeds/flowers out of the tub. But to my great surprise, the scent sneaks up on you. It lasts a very long time on the skin and the seeds/flowers are tiny enough to go right down the drain without clogging it. It left no rings or stains, no scrubbing after this one. My bathroom and I still smell great several hours later!
I have to agree with LUSH's write up on this one, your either going to LOVE IT or HATE IT! There is no in between with this one. If you have an aversion to bathing in brown water, this is not for you. But that didn't bother me at all. I closed my eyes, enjoyed the lovely fragrances which only got better after I got out of the bath. I had to go to the LUSH site and order the Karma gift set!
I really enjoyed this one. Since the Bon Bain scent lasts so long for me, I was just a very tiny bit disappointed that this one didn't. I did enjoy the warming experience and had the pleasure of a cup of tea (which graciously was sent as an extra with the ballistic) on a very cold day here. I do like the spicy smell this one has. It goes well with a fragrance like Opium. I must warn you, you'll need to wipe out your tub with this. It leaves a reddish ring where the water ends that needs to be cleaned after your bath.
Okay, I'm a blonde with fine hair. This didn't work for me very well. I really wanted to like it. I enjoyed the licorce smell, but it really weighed down my hair and by the end of my work day my hair looked like I didn't wash it at all. I'm still in search of the ultimate shampoo.
Oh mighty LUSH Gods & Goddesses, I humbly bow before you and beg you not to take my butterball away EVER! After a rough day at work and below zero temps, this is just what I needed physically and the smell was so relaxing I never wanted to get out of the tub. This is the longest bath I ever took in history and I was disappointed dinner was ready for me to eat (I love food). Need I say more.....

I use this one for the days I want to feel like a lady not a tomgirl. I smelled heavenly for at least 24 hours after my luxurious soak. My skin felt great, that's good, I would've hated to run the wonderful smell with moisturizers!
Okay, I'm falling for just about everything LUSH. Those of you that are close enough to get this consisently are so lucky! I must have gotten a fresh pot or am just used to dealing with Shea Butter (I'm a big L'Occitane fan & user). I didn't find this hard and unusable at all. It didn't flake on my lips and was fairly easy to remove from the pot. It left my lips soft and smooth and aided in the smooth look of my gloss. I'm not worried about the lack of SPF. All the lip colors I wear contain an SPF so this is a great base for me. The only disadvantage I see is as you reach the bottom of the pot it will be difficult to get at.
I received this from a gracious person here and I have fallen in love with LUSH. I have colored treated hair, but had no problem with this product at all(but my hair isn't damaged to begin with)! It left my hair shiny and in great condition. I was remarkable surprised at how little I needed to lather my long hair. I just wish it came with a cardboard/plastic container to put it in. Don't keep this in the shower when your finished. It will quickly disappear.
I love what this does for my hair. Even though it's fine the Cello-Gloss treatment really helps. You put the goo (sorry best word to describe it) on clean damp hair, put on a plastic cap and sit under a dryer or blow dry for 15 minutes. Shampoo out and great hair follows. It beautifully controlled my flyaways and put a shine in my hair (very hard to do for a dark blonde!) I keep this in stock at all times now.
OOooooo, one of the best men's skincare/shaving products I've found for the darling hubby in a long time. His face feels wonderful after several weeks of using this. His shaved face no longer irritates my sensitive skin. He's said his face doesn't itch anymore if he forgets to shave and he's noticed over time he gets a closer shave. He asked me to keep tabs on this whenever I go to the mall so he doesn't run out!

I just love this product. I was desperately looking for something to combat the VERY cold weather we've been having and this did the trick. It does go on white, but just rub your lips together and this quickly goes away. Even though it doesn't have an SPF I found it great under lipgloss or lipstick. It definitely improved the staying power of those products. It did the trick for me overnight also. One day my lips were sore and chapped and wa la, the next morning they felt great and hubby could kiss me again! I apply this every night and before lipstick application and I get great compliments on how great my lips look. This has never happened to me before. I highly recommend this product for the quick healing effects.
Like everything from this line, it definitely takes a light application to achieve wonderful results. That being said, I find mineral veil one of the best powders I've used. It makes my pores appear smaller and just completes the overall finish of my skin without caking or settling into the fine lines.
