Tender is the Night Bath Bomb from Lush

Tender is the Night Bath Bomb

One of the very first products I bought from Lush was the Tender is the Night massage bar. Its scent has great sentimental value to me as it always reminds me of my first trip into a Lush shop. On that day, my addiction and journey with Lush began. – I mentioned in a previous review of the Harajuku bath bomb about the new Japanese superstore that opened earlier this month. The Tender is the Night Bath Bomb is just one of the products exclusively available from that store.

Luckily for everyone that can’t get to Tokyo, the Lush Kitchen released 12 of the bath bombs online giving the rest of the world access to purchase them too. As of the 13th of December several of the 12 bath bombs were also made available to purchase from a few of the Lush Spa stores too. Sadly these won’t be permanent fixtures to the stores, once they’ve sold out, they won’t be coming back.

When all of the new Harajuku store bath bombs were showcased on social media the Tender is the Night bath bomb was the one that I desired the most. Packed with all of the same ingredients as the aforementioned massage bar, the Tender is the Night bath bomb is a Lush-dream come true for me.

Its scent is a beautifully subtle, floral-sweet mix of vanilla, jasmine and ylang ylang oil. I find it incredibly relaxing, I’d love to see this bath bomb become a part of Lush’s Valentine’s Day 2019 range as its scent reflects romance and love perfectly. Matched up with the massage bar and the Tender is the Night naked shower cream they would make the ultimate Valentine trio!

As soon as the Tender is the Night bath bomb touches the water an array of soft pink and creamy white bubbles fizzles out of it. As the bath bomb bobs around the waters surface it creates delicate swirls of pinks and whites while turning the bath water a most-welcoming shade of pink.

What pleased me the most about the Tender is the Night bath bomb was how its scent lasted both through out the bath and on my skin, I could still smell it on me well into the next day. The bath bomb made the water silky smooth too, my skin lapped it up. I got out of the bath not only smelling delicious but also with soft, well hydrated and bright skin.

I thoroughly enjoyed using the Tender is the Night bath bomb, I’m going to be bold and say that it is probably one of my favourite bath bombs of all time. It wasn’t particularly good from a bath art perspective but wow does it smell and leave me feeling good.

I have fallen head over heels in love with the Tender is the Night scent all over again thanks to this beautiful bath bomb. I am at a loss as to why Lush hadn’t made this amazing bath bomb before now, it’s gorgeous. I admit that the price is a bit high but that’s because of its vanilla ingredient. I do however believe that it’s worth every penny and out of all of the exclusive bath bombs, Tender is the Night is the only bath bomb that I ordered more of, straight after using it. It’s a must have!

Celebrate Shower Gel from Lush

Celebrate Shower Gel
Celebrate Shower Gel was (and still is to some extent) one of the rarest, most sought after Lush shower gels ever made. When it was first released it was an exclusive product to Lush Japan. I’m not completely sure of the exact ins and outs but from what I understand, Lush UK didn’t have the rights to make it. With it only being available to buy within Japan the demand for it world wide was through the roof. Unless you could get someone in Japan to ship it to you directly it was near on impossible to get hold of.

Back in 2016 Lush UK released a shower gel as a part of their winter line called Bubbly. It’s not the same as Celebrate shower gel but it does come from the same scent family. As there are so many beautiful Lush scent families to choose from it is impossible for me to pick just the one favourite, anything Celebrate scented is however always a hit with me.

Lush Kitchen reached 3 years young back in March 2017 and to celebrate they brought out Celebrate shower gel as a surprise! It was a dream come true for me and I did not see it coming. For me, it was a sit down and fan yourself type of surprise, Lush is my life, don’t judge me. Just as I had come to terms with the fact that I would probably never get my hands on a bottle, I did! Thank you Lush Kitchen, you rock my world!

As soon as you open the lid of Celebrate shower gel you are greeted with the comforting and refreshing scent of warming cognac, sweet orange and zesty lime. Much like the Bubbly shower gel, Celebrate is a fairly thick formula, to me it feels like more of a cream than a shower gel.

The smallest amount of Celebrate shower gel goes a very long way, this is a great trait to have in a product you love, especially when it is also a very rare product! it lathers up in your hands effortlessly and works even better with a shower pouf or washcloth. As you work it onto your body the scent really hits you. It’s a very delicate citrus fragrance that I can never, ever get enough of.

My skin adores it, as does my nose. Using Celebrate shower gel is great anytime of day but I love to use it of an evening after a long, hard day. It not only lifts my mood but also eases me into a relaxed state of mind, helping me wind down for bed time. Its scent reminds me of happy times. The first time I experienced the Celebrate scent was when I used a Golden Wonder bath bomb, I fell in love with it within seconds of using it and have been desperate to try every Celebrate scented product since.

I am curious as to whether Celebrate shower gel will be making a return as a part of 2017’s Winter line now that Lush UK have got the okay to make it here. I honestly wouldn’t mind either Celebrate or Bubbly though, they are both very good shower gels that I find work just as good as a shampoo too.  I would however be really upset if neither came back this year.

I can clearly see and smell why the Celebrate shower gel is so sought after and I am so thankful to the Lush Kitchen for pulling so many strings and finally giving us UK Lushies a chance to experience it!

Blackberry Bath Bomb from Lush

blackberry-bath-bomb

Sometimes the most simple of Lush products turn out to be some of Lush’s best kept secrets. Being honest, the Blackberry Bath Bomb doesn’t exactly turn heads, it’s all one colour and not at all as exciting or nearly as pleasing on the eye as Frozen or The Experimenter bath bomb.

When I first started to really get into Lush I wasn’t so sure about this bath bomb as it contained 2 ingredients I wasn’t very familiar with, bergamot and frankincense. I’m not sure how everyone’s first experience with a Lush shop quite goes but if it was anything like mine, you didn’t have a clue as to where you should even start.

If a newbie Lushie asks me what products I recommend they first try, I never give a name of a specific product. I always say go into the shop and go to the product that calls out to you. Next give it a sniff, if you like its scent too, buy it!

I first came across the Blackberry bath bomb several years ago, it was completely overshadowed by the product next to it, (the super bright Fizzbanger) I picked it up, although it wasn’t the prettiest bath bomb in the shop, it didn’t smell unpleasant so I decided to give it a go.

blackberry bb

Upon my very first use of the Blackberry bath bomb I discovered that it had magical properties and I now without question always have no less than 2 in my personal Lush stash.

When I very first used it I almost feel asleep in the bath, this wasn’t an odd chance thing either, it still happens every time I use it. I don’t know how I even make it out of the bath and into bed. As a diagnosed insomniac this product is quite simply a miracle. It has changed my life.

The scent of the Blackberry bath bomb stays with you throughout the next day too, if I know I have a stressful next day I always use it the night before.

I 100% recommend this bath bomb, it’s a life changer, I wish I had discovered it sooner than I did, I have however well made up for it since. Quite recently I have started to break the Blackberry bath bomb in half, it still has the same effect on me but now I can have 2 baths out of the one bath bomb.

There is also a little surprise at the end, I won’t spoil it for you, ENJOY!

Tender is the Night Massage Bar from Lush

tender-is-the-night-massage-barTender is the Night was my very first Lush massage bar. When I first started to get into Lush I remember seeing it on Instagram all of the time. It was a popular, stand out product. To look at I don’t think the other Lush massage bars are ugly, Tender is the Night was just the one that first caught my attention.

I was actually visiting my friends and family in London when I got around to finally picking one up. Lush Oxford Street didn’t even exist back then… I don’t know what I even did when I visited London before it opened?!

Tender is the night 2

The Stratford shop space in the Westfield centre is where I picked up my first Lush massage bar. This particular store is all on one level so before Lush Oxford Street was a thing, it was my favourite store as I always got to have a good look at everything.

Being in the wheelchair does limit me a lot so whenever I am in London I always try to visit the Oxford Street store as well as Stratford’s as they are fully accessible – legs or wheels.

Tender is the Night is the standard shape Lush massage bar. I say standard as most of them are the oval shape like in the photo above. Not too big and not too small, it fits nicely in the palm of your hand. There are however a few massage bars that are slightly different in shape such as the Soft Coeur, Hottie and of course the Strawberry Feels Forever.

13240707_1789004031328817_6667680546033222529_n

Regardless of shape, all of the Lush massage bars are ridiculously moreish. I was hooked within seconds of using Tender is the Night. Originally released as a Valentine’s day product, Tender is the Night has a very romantic scent, the ylang ylang, vanilla and jasmine absolute in its ingredients reflects love perfectly.

The fact that it is now an all year round staple store product also says a lot. It’s more than a best seller!

Lush massage bars aren’t just for massages either. They can also be used by yourself as an all over body-moisturiser.

I find Tender is the Night very hydrating, the scent also stays with you for hours after using it. My skin remains soft and in a great condition for the best part of a week after using it too.

Tender is the Night 3

I have been asked a few times about how long a massage bar lasts when in use. Some say you can get at least 6 generous, all over body massages out of one.

Using it as a moisturiser however it seems to last forever! I think all of the Lush massage bars are excellent value for money.

Celebrate Body Lotion from Lush

Celebrate Body Lotion is one of my all time favourite Christmas-time Lush products.

When I found out that it wouldn’t be making a return this year, (2016) I was devastated. I had only one pot and a good three quarters of it had been used up. I have been using the last blob of my body lotion sparingly and am now only a week or so away from it being completely empty. *cries*

Luckily the Lush God’s have been listening to me and next week Celebrate body lotion will be up for grabs in the Lush Kitchen. Just one pot should cover me right up until this time next year. YAY!celebrate-body-lotion

The Celebrate body lotion shares its scent with some of the best products Lush have to offer. To name a few there is the Golden Wonder bath bomb, First Snow dusting powder and the Bubbly shower gel. It’s a really popular scent and features in several different formats, the more the merrier and all that… 😉

As soon as you pop open the lid of the Celebrate body lotion you are greeted with the comforting and refreshing scent of warming cognac, sweet orange and zesty lime oils. It is a creamy coloured lotion and its scent alone invites you in to using it, enjoying it with all of your senses.

A little bit of the Celebrate body lotion goes a very long way, one 225g pot has lasted me just over a year and it’s good even past its sell by date as it is self preserving. Just make sure it is stored somewhere cool and that the lid is left on it in between uses.3.0.png

Using Celebrate body lotion lifts my mood, it is perfect when applied after a long, hard day.

Once applied the scent itself stays with you through out the night and most of the next day too. Pairing it up with the First Snow dusting powder makes for a match made in heaven.

Not only does Celebrate leave you smelling fabulous, it also leaves you with soft, smooth and gloriously hydrated skin – it is the perfect body lotion and by far one of the best I have ever used.

This year (2016) they brought Sleepy body lotion out in its place. As I mentioned above I was devastated, Sleepy is however a very good body lotion, I like it a lot. I am just an old school Lushie and love the Celebrate body lotion just that little bit more.

Both Celebrate and Sleepy have their strong points but I believe Celebrate body lotion will always be my all time favourite.

Abombinaball Bath Bomb from Lush

Abombinaball Bath Bomb.png

The Abombinaball Bath Bomb may look really scary but he’s actually a joy to share a bath with… Honest! Until last year I hadn’t had a chance to try the Abombinaball bath bomb, Lushie’s all over the world raved about it so naturally when it became available in the Lush Kitchen I jumped at the chance to order a few.

As much as I love the Intergalactic bath bomb and its minty freshness, I can’t help but crave something minty that’s just a little different as it gets a bit boring after a while, both the Intergalactic and Abombinaball bath bomb have peppermint oil in. I love peppermint oil based products as they help me manage my nausea levels. I’m on a lot of medication so suffer with it quite frequently.

As good as Intergalactic is, sometimes a change is as good as a holiday so I was super excited when my Abombinaball bath bombs arrived.

Untitled 1

Although Abombinaball and Intergalactic both contain mostly peppermint oil, they are far from similar. The Abombinaball’s scent isn’t as sharp as the Intergalactic. I find the Abombinaball bath bomb sweeter and a much warmer scent in comparison.

Abombinaball also contains sweet orange oil and vanilla absolute, when I first learnt this I was a bit confused as I thought the ingredients would clash terribly. After I however sniffed an Abombinaball I was no longer confused, the ingredients all worked together perfectly…Untitled 3

Its scent reminds me of my late Grandad Bob. He always had Trebor mints near him, using an Abombinaball bath bomb really takes me back to being a kid again. Back then I would sit next to him holding a Trebor mint he’d given me, licking it like a cat instead of just putting it in my mouth like a normal person.

He was one of my favourite people on the planet. I love how a scent can just take you back in time. The Abombinaball bath bomb will always have a special place in my heart.

If you thought the Intergalactic bath bomb was shimmery then you clearly haven’t tried an Abombinaball bath bomb. It’s magical!

Overall I am thoroughly impressed with the Abombinaball bath bomb, it’s fresh, sweet and uplifting making it perfect for a boost. Peppermint always seems to wake me up so I’d put this bath bomb down as a daytime product.

I have however used it at night and still slept quite soundly.

If I can buy the Abombinaball bath bomb when it is on the Lush Kitchen menu I will,  it really is a brilliant Lush product that I can’t recommend enough.

Northern Lights Soap from Lush

northern-lights-soap
When the Northern Lights Soap was last on the Lush Kitchen menu I couldn’t help but pick up a bar. Ever since I had very first used the old Northern Lights Bath Bomb I’d loved the scent.

The newer and updated version of the Northern Lights bath bomb is currently available everywhere as a part of the Winter 2016 product line. This had reunited me with the beautiful scent and of course I fell head over heels in love with it all over again. The chance to buy anything that shares its scent is currently my biggest Lush desire, whatever the format!

One of my favourite things about Lush is that you can enjoy their older scents in lots of different formats. Until this year the Northern Lights scent had been put at the back of the scent cupboard and I’m so pleased they’ve brought it back as it really is one of my all time favourites.

At first it took me a little while to get used to the Northern Lights scent, when it was first put in front of me I was almost convinced that it was too strong a scent for me. By the end of my very first Northern Lights bath I was however a super fan and desperate to try more.

There aren’t as many products in the Northern Lights scent family as I’d like. I hope in time its family will grow to the same size as the Calacas or Pop in the Bath scent… These things however take time so I will wait patiently enjoying the presence of the bath bomb and the soap for now.

As you can see the Northern Lights soap is quite the colourful eye sore, when I first unwrapped it from its Lush Kitchen wrapper it was basically glowing.

The fragrance that radiates from it is so hard to put into words, it’s slightly citrusy but just has a little more bite.

The soap itself seems to last forever, it lathers up very quickly and its scent remains just as strong. I was pleasantly surprised at the condition of my skin after washing with it too.

Bars of soap normally dry out my skin but not Northern Lights. My skin wasn’t as hydrated as I like it after I’ve just used Lush but it also wasn’t so dry that I needed to cake myself in body lotion as soon as I had dried myself off…

Although it didn’t do a bad job on my body I think I’ll leave this one for washing my hands, unfortunately this is how I feel about all Lush soaps. I just find that soaps don’t help my skin look and feel its best in comparison to how the body conditioners or the shower creams do. This is why I rarely review soaps, Northern Lights had however impressed me enough to warrant me writing a whole post on it.

They really, really need to bring out a Northern Lights shower gel or jelly, that and a body lotion.

Wow, I’m totally hooked on its scent. I wish I’d have bought several of the bars now just so I could leave them around my house, the unique and dangerously addictive scent gets me every time.

Yoga Bomb Bath Bomb from Lush

Yoga Bomb Bath Bomb.png

I can’t believe I have left the opportunity of reviewing the Yoga Bomb bath bomb until now, I have no excuses other than that I have been completely overwhelmed with all of the new Lush products released over the past 24 months. It has been such an exciting whirlwind of 5 star, fresh cosmetics.

During this period of time I have fallen head over heels in love with Lush products one after the other.

When the Yoga Bomb bath bomb was first released it was one of many new Lush products that were exclusive to the Lush Oxford Street flagship store that opened back in 2015. Eventually, the Yoga Bomb bath bomb proved so popular that Lush decided to make it available in all stores and online.

The first thing that comes to mind when you have a Yoga Bomb bath bomb in your hands is how boring and plain it looks. In comparison to other bath bombs such as Frozen or Sacred Lotus it wouldn’t win any beauty competitions on first appearance alone.

Scent wise the Yoga Bomb bath bomb is however a whole other level of yum.

Containing frankincense and sandalwood oil the Yoga Bomb’s scent is invitingly warm as well as both calming and soothing. It is a fantastic night time bath bomb that I have found to be a great alternative to the Blackberry bath bomb if I ever fancy bathing a little differently.
Within the first few seconds of the Yoga Bomb hitting your bath water, mounds and mounds of fluffy orange foam disperses from it. The foam gathers together on top of the water surface, spreading itself out evenly.

The Yoga Bomb then begins to charge around the bathtub while also slowly spinning itself, leaving a clear pattern of summer-orange swirls and big white, frothy bubbles.

Upon my first use of the Yoga Bomb I couldn’t help but wish that it had a little something more to give. The scent ticks every box for what I like in a bath bomb but for such a foamy bath bomb I wondered why it didn’t have any more colours to show off with.

That thought was however short lived as after 5 or so minutes of Yoga Bomb bobbing around in my bath it decided to show me its beautiful, secret insides!

In addition to the orange there were now small swirls of other colours forming. Light purple, indigo, turquoise, lime green and a deep exotic blue. The colourful patterns that the Yoga Bomb made in my bathtub got bolder and better with every passing second.

All of the colours that were coming out of the Yoga Bomb were soft and gentle shades. The colours, its scent and it’s beauty put together a truly relaxing, bath-time atmosphere.

The Yoga Bomb is a very slow fizzer. The show seems to go on for 10 minutes, maybe more, I am unsure as I always lose complete track of time while watching it.

It creates such mesmerising patterns right in front of your eyes and it’s always a little hard to believe as it truly is a marvelous bath bomb once it gets itself going.

Once Yoga Bomb has fully dissolved you are left with shimmery orange bath water coated with softly multicoloured swirls.

I find a Yoga Bomb bath to be very moisturising. It’s a treat for tired skin that I go back for time and time again. The delicate scent of the bath bomb stays with you for a good 4 or so hours after getting out of the bath too.

If you want help to relax after a tough day, the Yoga Bomb bath bomb is an excellent choice for a bathing partner. Within minutes of soaking in its water I can feel all of my worries and stresses melt away.

I am so glad that Lush rolled this bath bomb out to all stores at it is positively fabulous.

My only negative on it is that it really does work best the fresher it is. I strongly advise against hauding this bath bomb for more than a couple of weeks. It is self preserving I just feel you get more out of it when it is at its freshest.

Some bath bombs I’ve managed to keep perfect for months after buying it. The Yoga Bomb however doesn’t seem to hold on to its glory for very long, if you want the jaw dropping bath show I mention, use your Yoga Bomb bath bomb within a few days of buying it.

Ultraviolet Bubble Bar from Lush

ultra violet bubble barBack in 2015 I completely missed the opportunity to buy and try Lush’s newest bubble bar creation, Ultraviolet. After waiting with crossed fingers for a year I was of course ecstatic when I found out that they were temporarily bringing it back as part of their 2016 Spring line.

Like the Brightside bubble bar the Ultraviolet has size on its side. I always favour the larger bubble bars as I like a product that can be shared out to use over several different baths. The cost effective bit of my brain ding, ding, dings with happiness.

You can easily get 5 or 6 generously bubbled baths out of just one Ultraviolet bubble bar. I like to break mine up into several different pieces, I then grab a tea bag strainer, put one of the pieces in it and run it under the bath tap. I also recommend putting the plug in before doing this, the amount of bubble bars I have wasted because my boyfriend forgot to put the plug in is actually hilarious. 😉

UltraVioletinteastrainer

As soon as the tap water comes into contact with the Ultraviolet bubble bar, mounds and mounds of sweet violet scented, fluffy white bubbles are created.

Not only are you getting the benefits of its beautiful scent but it also turns your bath water the most enchanting shade of purple. The purple is very close if not the same as the colour I have picked for my bridesmaids to wear at my wedding next year. I love it!

The violet leaf absolute within the Ultraviolet bubble bar pairs with its other ingredient rosewood oil beautifully. You get just the right amount of sweetness, it’s not sickly at all. The sweetness in it is then rounded off by the rosewood oil’s musky, spicy and woody scent.

The Ultraviolet bubble bar makes for a very relaxing bath. Mixed with a Blackberry bath bomb it is the only non-medicinal product I have found that stops my migraines in their tracks. Obviously it’s not the cure and I continue to get migraines, I just find that they are easier to manage after using the above mentioned Lush products.

I came across the magic cocktail by complete accident. Now whenever a migraine is threatening to squat in my head I take the migraine tablet prescribed by my GP put a cold wet flannel on my head and then lay back in a relaxing Ultraviolet and Blackberry bath, the heat from the bath water, at the bottom of my neck helps a lot too.

ultraviolet

My only negative on the Ultraviolet bubble bar is that it didn’t hang around for very long.

After the Mother’s Day and Easter stock finished for 2016 it disappeared with them. I really, really hope that they bring it out again next year or even in the Lush Kitchen. I am running out of my stash already!

Has anyone else used Lush’s Ultraviolet bubble bar? what did you think of it?

Brightside Bubble Bar from Lush

I can’t believe that I have only just reviewed the Brightside Bubble Bar from @Lushltd @LushCosmetics. Has anyone else used it? what did you think? check my review out here!

Brightside Bubble BarOut of all of the bubble bars that Lush have on offer, Brightside is the one that I could never, ever get bored of. It is my most used bubble bar to date and in my personal opinion, one of the best bubble bars Lush have ever created.

Its scent is fruitylicious, containing Sicilian mandarin, bergamot and tangerine essential oils it is a citrus junkies dream product.

Within seconds of first picking it up in my local Lush store I was well and truly hooked.

13445269_1800338333528720_126480546602139156_n
A Brightside bath is both uplifting and refreshing. After a grueling hydrotherapy session I look forward to nothing more than getting home and getting into a beautifully scented, orange-coloured water filled bubble bath. For my tired out, overworked body it works wonders.

Brightside Bubble Bar new

What first attracted me to the larger bubble bars such as Brightside was that they can be used over more than one bath. Many people break their Brightside bubble bars in half. I however like to spread mine out over more than just the 2 baths. One Brightside bubble bar can easily be used in 6 to 8 baths. Running the tiniest amount under the hot tap (see photo below) gives you copious amounts of cheery, fluffy-white bubbles.

I have of course experimented using much bigger chunks of the Brightside bubble bar for just the one bath too. It made for a fantastic bath, I just felt as if it was a bit wasteful.

I found that using less gave me just as good as a result which makes it a no brainer, anything that can be made more cost effective without lowering its quality is a winner for me.

13428507_1800338113528742_3065151642917944815_n

A frequently asked question in regards to Lush bubble bars is, ‘How do you use them?‘ It is of course completely up to you.

Some people crumble bits off, followed by holding it in their hand under a running tap, rubbing it gently as the water rinses over it. I however can’t use that method as we currently only have 2 taps on our bath, scalding hot or whoops my hand’s turned to ice cold.

I prefer to have mine broken into chunks, I store them all in jars. When I want a Brightside bath I get a few of the chunks and put them in a tea bag strainer, I then run that under the hot tap, scaled free.

BSA

It’s really awkward to try and get a photograph of the bubble bars once in the bath. For a review I want to showcase the water’s colour as well as the amount of bubbles it creates, getting a photo of both in one shot is however very tricky!

The above photo is the best I could get of Brightside in the bath. You’ll have to take my word for it, the mounds of soft white bubbles from the smallest bit of bubble bar fill up your bath effortlessly.

The orange water it creates is also surreal. The first time my boyfriend used a bit of it for his own bath he described it as, ‘having a bath in Fanta.’ I thought exactly the same. Its scent reminds me of orange ice lollies. I describe it as surreal because the first thought that crosses your mind when you’re about to get in it is, ‘it’s got to be sticky to smell this good?!‘ It however isn’t sticky and for me, ever since my first Brightside bath, bath time has never been the same again!

Overall I obviously really, really like this bubble bar. It not only revives my body but my mind too. It makes my skin feel soft and fresh, ready to take on the rest of the day.

It’s name is suited for it perfectly, if you could capture sunshine and happiness and then put it in a bath product you’d get the Brightside bubble bar every single time. It’s really worth a try.
