Calacas Body Spray from Lush

Calacas Body Spray.pngThe Calacas scent happens to be one of my most favourite Lush scents of all time. My first experience with a Calacas scented product was when I ordered the shower gel of the same name. I fell hopelessly in love after just one use and just like that, my Lush-lifes mission became trying anything and every thing Calacas scented.

I have been putting in requests to Lush for a Calacas perfume for what feels like an eternity, it has been my most wanted product for well over 5 years now. On the 1st of December 2018 Lush finally came through. The Lush Kitchen made a Calacas Body Spray!

Although I had always wished for Calacas to be released in the perfume format, I was more than happy to see that it was only being made into body spray. I find that the body sprays last so much longer than the liquid perfumes, they also go further and are much better value for money.

The Calacas body spray scent is to die for and funnily enough is inspired by the Day of the Dead. The Day of the Dead is celebrated throughout Mexico during the last week of October and first few days of November (Halloween). It is a celebration in honour of family and friends who are no longer with them.

With its lime, frankincense and neroli ingredients the Calacas scent is a sharp and zesty mood boosting fragrance, some even joke it’s so zingy it could wake the dead!

The Calacas scent is hugely popular within the Lush community and it has been replicated into many different product formats. Sometimes even though 2 different products are from the same scent family, their scent can differ slightly because they are different formats. With the Calacas scent I don’t see (or should I say sniff) much difference between the product formats at all, last years Man in the Moon bubble bar has exactly the same Calacas scent as the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb.

I was therefore a little surprised when I smelt the Calacas body spray for the first time…

The difference in scent between the body spray and other Calacas scented products is very subtle and not so different that I dislike it. I am as a matter of fact loving the Calacas in a liquid format, it’s so much fresher and even more zingy than any other Calacas scented product I have tried before.

Most importantly though, the Calacas body spray isn’t super-duper strong, it’s just right. One spritz on my clothes leaves me smelling of sweet and zingy Calacas all day. I have also sprayed it on my dressing gown and 3 days later the beautiful Calacas scent is still detectable!

Another thing I like to do with it is spritz it once on the ends of my hair. Several people have asked me what shampoo I use as my hair smells so lovely. Overall I am over the moon with this body spray. It and my So White body sprays are now on my dresser pride of place.

Plum Rain Body Spray from Lush

Plum Rain Body Spray

The Plum Rain Body Spray shares its scent with Lush’s much loved Plum Rain shower gel. The scent is actually fairly new, it made its debut in its shower gel form at Lush Oxford Street back in July 2016, since then it has become a main line product and at the time of writing this, is available in all UK stores as well as online. Due to its skyrocketing popularity, Lush not only treated us with the creation and release of the Plum Rain body spray but over last year’s Winter period also treated us to 2 brand new, limited edition products that also shared the gorgeous Plum Rain scent. The Hedgewitch soap and Plum Snow bubble bar.

Plum Rain body spray has a long list of fruity ingredients, the osmanthus absolute, petitgrain oil and Sicilian mandarin mix is a little odd BUT upon first sniff incredibly moreish. Scent wise, I believe Plum Rain to be one of the most interesting fragrances Lush currently have on offer. The scent is refreshing and warm while also being very, very inviting, I can never get enough of it. Its scent is completely different from anything Lush has created before now. It’s a very sour fruity fragrance BUT not at all unpleasant.

To use all you have to do is squirt the Plum Rain body spray over your body or clothes. Just 1 or 2 squirts is all you need, I’m amazed that such a small amount leaves you smelling absolutely gorgeous all day long. I can understand why so many people like the body sprays more than the perfumes. They have the same level of strength (scent-wise) and you get so much more for your money. Just a few refreshing squirts of Plum Rain is all that it takes to set you up for the whole day. I got married last year (2017) and I decided that Plum Rain would be my wedding scent. A decision I do not regret. Now its fruity fragrance will forever remind me of my wedding day.

Another great thing I have found with not just Plum Rain but all of the body sprays is how long they last. I honestly don’t know why Lush didn’t create more body sprays long before now as they really are such wonderful products. As I mentioned above they are so much more cost effective than the perfumes and all of them have such an amazing scent throw. I really hope Lush create some more body sprays soon as they are quickly becoming one of my favourite Lush products.

Love Body Spray from Lush

Love Body Spray

Seeing as the season of love is hurtling towards us at a thousand miles per hour I thought it would be a good idea to complete and publish my review on the Love Body Spray. At the Lush Summit back in February 2017 Lush revealed several brand new body sprays. Some were available to buy whilst others were prototypes that weren’t quite ready for release. The Love body spray shares its scent with the perfume of the same name, the Love Apple bubble bar and one of my all time favourite bath bombs, the Fizzbanger.

Love body spray is rich with lemongrass and bergamot oil making it the perfect product to help lift your mood and start your day the right way.

To use all you have to do is squirt the Love body spray over your body or clothes. Just 1 or 2 squirts is all you need, I’m amazed that such a small amount leaves you smelling absolutely gorgeous all day long. I can understand why so many people like the body sprays more than the perfumes. They have the same level of strength (scent-wise) and you get so much more for your money.

The Love body sprays fragrance is quite a strong one. It however quickly settles to a much more gentle, sweet yet spicy, musky scent. When I smell it, all I can think of is hot apple pie sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, the lemongrass and bergamot are also noticeable giving the spray an extra layer of fruitiness. It is one of Lush’s warmest yet super refreshing scents and one I can never resist.

As I said above, only one or two spritz of the Love body spray is needed to get the most out of it, its scent really does stay with you for the whole day too. The fact you need to use so little of it also means it never seems to run out. I use my body sprays daily and have had Love for almost a year now and it’s still going strong.

I honestly don’t know why Lush didn’t create more body sprays long before now as they really are such wonderful products. They are cost effective and have such an amazing scent throw. The fact they help long term lushie’s reunite with a golden-oldie-scent from Lush’s past makes it even better. Even the newbie lushies can appreciate the body sprays, discovering scents they never had the chance to try makes exploring Lush’s products even more fun and worthwhile!

So White Body Spray from Lush

So White Body SprayThe So White Body Spray is currently an exclusive Lush product that can only be purchased through the Lush Kitchen online. If you have been thinking of getting a bottle I suggest placing your order sooner rather than later, they have proven very popular and even though the Lush Kitchen are making much bigger batches now, I can’t see them being around for very much longer. The So White body spray shares its scent with Santa’s Belly shower jelly, Once Upon A Time body lotion and of course the So White bath bomb and shower gel.

This deliciously-crisp, apple scented body spray is the perfect product to spritz yourself with to leave you feeling instantly refreshed, its scent is uplifting and gives you the boost of all boosts to help start your day with a clear state of mind. I can never resist its scent, there’s just something about it that makes me think of a far away, fairytale kingdom. Smelling just like a princess has never been so easy!

To use all you have to do is squirt the So White body spray over your body or clothes. Just 1 or 2 squirts is all you need, I’m amazed that such a small amount leaves you smelling absolutely gorgeous all day long. Now that I own a few, I can understand why so many people favour the body sprays over the perfumes. They have the same level of strength (scent-wise) and you get so much more for your money with them too.

As I said above, only one or two spritz of the So White body spray is needed to get the most out of it and its scent really does stay with you for the whole day. Upon the very first spritz I immediately ordered another bottle of it, it was still available and I thought, why not? I never, ever want to be without this beautiful, fairytale-dream-scented body spray. I am gutted that it was released after my wedding as it would have been the perfect scent for our special day. Not that my wedding wasn’t amazing but smelling just like a princess would have made the day glisten instead of just shine!

I honestly don’t know why Lush didn’t create more body sprays long before now as they really are such wonderful products. They are so cost effective and last for so much longer than any other Lush product ever has before. In my review of the Twilight body spray I said that it was the best body spray I had ever tried, well… Move over Twilight, So White is in the house.

I am so pleased that the Lush Kitchen expanded upon the line of products with the So White scent, I have been a huge fan of the scent family ever since using my very first So White scented Lush product, the original So White bath bomb. Apple scents aren’t a common ingredient in Lush products, the only other product with a hint of apple in that springs to mind right now is the Fizzbanger bath bomb. Fizzbanger smells just like hot, apple pie, it’s yet another Lush-applesque-scent that I adore, Fruity apple scents must be in demand though as Lush also do a Fizzbanger scented body spray called the Love body spray… Here’s hoping even more So White scented products get invented. I have my eyes peeled for that So White solid perfume that the Lush Kitchen promised us!

Twilight Body Spray from Lush

Twilight Body SprayAt the Lush Summit back in February 2017 Lush revealed several brand new body sprays. Some were available to buy whilst others were prototypes that weren’t quite ready for release. Today I am reviewing the Twilight Body Spray, it shares its scent with Lush’s Sleepy body lotionLuxury Lush Pud bath bomb, Mr Sandman dusting powder and most obviously the shed load of other products that go by the same name.

Twilight body spray is rich with lavender and tonka-absolute making it the perfect product to help you relax and unwind. Be that at the end of a long, hard day or first thing in the morning to help yourself remain cool, calm and collected for the day ahead.

To use all you have to do is squirt the Twilight body spray over your body or clothes. Just 1 or 2 squirts is all you need, I’m amazed that such a small amount leaves you smelling absolutely gorgeous all day long. I can understand why so many people like the body sprays more than the perfumes. They have the same level of strength (scent-wise) and you get so much more for your money.

The Twilight body sprays fragrance is fairly gentle and not too in your face. It has a very soft-lavender tone to it, mixed in with the lavender is also a dash of tonka absolute. The inclusion of tonka adds a sweet and almost musky layer to its scent, it’s one of the most soothing, mind-clearing and calming fragrances that Lush have created to date.

I use the Twilight body spray 3 maybe 4 times a week and have been doing so since march/april this year and it’s still going strong. As I said above, only one or two spritz of the Twilight body spray is needed to get the most out of it and its scent really does stay with you for the whole day.

I have promised myself that I will buy another bottle just before my current one is finished, that way I’ll never be without… I honestly don’t know why Lush didn’t create body sprays long before now as they really are such wonderful products. The Twilight body spray is cost effective, smells exactly the same as the much loved Twilight bath bomb and has lasted me so much longer than any other Lush product ever has before. Without a doubt the Twilight body spray is in my opinion the best body spray I’ve ever owned.
