Follow The White Rabbit Bath Bomb from Lush

You may be awash with feelings of déjà vu when you look at the Follow The White Rabbit Bath Bomb for several reasons.

The first reason is how similar its design and colourings are to the Winter bath bomb favourite, Snowman Dreaming. The second and third being its mould is the exact same used for the Bouncy Bunny shower jelly and Spring Bunny bath bomb from Lush Easter lines of the past.

Ever since the aforementioned, Snowman Dreaming bath bomb was released a few Winters ago I have hoped Lush would do a similar bunny shaped bath bomb with the Bouncy Bunny scent and for Easter 2021, Lush did!

The Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb is a smaller sized Lush bath bomb, about the same size as an old-style Butterbear or old-style Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb, it fits snuggly in my hand.

All good things come in small packages and what Follow The White Rabbit lacks in size it well makes up for with its scent and performance in the water.

Containing a mix of buchu, bergamot and Sicilian lemon oils, the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb has a wonderfully refreshing scent that is deliciously moreish. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up bath product, search no more. The Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb will put more than a spring in your step, a good soak in its citrus-waters will leave you cheery and uplifted.

As soon as the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb comes into contact with water you are greeted with an explosion of colours. Pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues shoot out of its left side leaving behind a rainbow-stream of bath bomb foam.

Even though the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb is small, it’s a reasonably slow fizzer. Giving you more than enough time to appreciate the kaleidoscope of colourful bath art it creates. The bath art is out of this world, my photos in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all.

I enjoyed using the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb so much that I immediately ordered 2 more straight after using it.

All good things must come to an end and once the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb has fully dissolved, you are left with milky violet water that softens and lightly fragrances your skin.

Its scent remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day. I hope that one day Lush can create a body spray of the Follow The White Rabbit bath bombs fragrance, it’s perfect for the Spring but its wonderfully refreshing scent would work all year round.

The Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb is a must have from this years Easter line, if it doesn’t return year in, year out Lush will be in my bad books!

Botanomancy CBD Bubble Bar from Lush

The Botanomancy CBD Bubble Bar is a brand-new product and is the first of its kind from Lush. It was released alongside the 4:20pm CBD bath bomb back on Christmas Eve, 2020. CBD is short for cannabidiol, cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive compound found in hemp plants.

There has been a lot of research conducted around the use of CBD oil and it is said to have a long list of health-benefits. In particular it helps with stress management and those suffering with anxiety and/or sleep problems.

CBD has also been proven to help people like me, who suffer from medical conditions that cause wide-spread chronic pain. The very reason I first got into Lush Cosmetics was because I was looking for natural alternatives to prescription painkiller medications. With this in mind I didn’t hesitate to buy Botanomancy when it became available.

The Botanomancy CBD bubble bar is the same size as the bestselling bubble bars, Brightside and The Comforter which has certainly pleased the masses. After all everyone likes more for their money! As well as the cannabidiol, Botanomancy also contains patchouli, sandalwood, ginger and dried peppermint leaf and rose petals. Its scent is really herbilicious, earthy and refreshing.

The first time I  used the Botanomancy CBD bubble bar I decided to stick half of the bar into my bubble bar sieve, this was way too much and a complete waste. The smallest amount creates more than enough bubbles, you can easily get 6 baths out of one bar, more if your water pressure is strong.

A blanket of fluffy white bubbles doesn’t take very long to form at all. Underneath the bubbles, the water is an earthy green scattered with the dried rose petals.

There is no better feeling than sinking yourself into a nice hot bath after a long day. If I am being honest, like the aforementioned 4:20pm CBD bath bomb, I wouldn’t say I was anymore relaxed than I’d normally be after just an ordinary Lush bath BUT I was relaxed enough to get straight into bed and a good nights sleep followed.

There are some aspects I’d like to tweak to this bubble bar, I personally would prefer it without the dried petals but I’ve seen plenty of people on Instagram who really liked their inclusion.

Other than that I really liked this bubble bar and I hope that Lush decide to bring out a few more CBD products as it’s something I’d love to try more of.

Atom Heart Mother Bath Bomb from Lush

The Atom Heart Mother Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited edition product from Lush’s 2021 Mother’s Day collection. When I learnt that it shared its scent with my all-time favourite Lush bath bomb (So White 2016 edition) I ordered 2 as soon as they became available.

The Atom Heart Mother bath bomb is light blue in colour and decorated with 3 white clouds on its top part, a lot of people have been comparing the cloud design to the ‘Woody wallpaper’ used in Andy’s bedroom in the Disney film, Toy Story.

A lot of Lush customers have become rather perplexed at the point of discovering the Atom Heart Mother bath bombs peculiar name. I myself was very confused, as well as slightly annoyed with its name. As someone who never stops talking about Lush a name that doesn’t roll off of the tongue can be some-what bothersome! 😉

After a quick Google I learnt that Lush didn’t just throw 3 random words together; The Atom Heart Mother bath bombs name was in fact inspired by the name of Pink Floyd’s first number 1 album.

I personally couldn’t name or sing/hum a single Pink Floyd song even if my life depended on it. I am however confident that many older customers (or those with a wide range of musical knowledge) will get the reference immediately.

According to Google, the rock band came up with the albums bizarre name after coming across an article in a newspaper that was about a woman who had been fitted with a ‘nuclear-powered pacemaker’. Your guess is as good as mine as to whether that is true or not!

Now that the Atom Heart Mothers peculiar name has been explained some-what, I can begin to let you all know my thoughts on the bath bomb itself.

When my parcel containing the Atom Heart Mother bath bombs arrived, I was pleased to see (or should I say smell) that its scent was exactly the same as the So White bath bomb that I mentioned earlier. Containing a blend of rose absolute, bergamot, neroli and Brazilian orange oils the Atom Heart Mothers scent smells just like crisp, freshly sliced apple chunks.

As soon as the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb comes in to contact with your bath water you are greeted with a gentle hiss of small blue and white bubbles. After a minute or so pink bubbles begin to materialise from it as well.

It doesn’t take long for the pink bubbles to become the most dominant of the 3 colours spurting out of the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb. Slowly but surely pink, white and small flecks of blue-bubbly-foam make beautiful swirling patterns on the bath water’s surface as the Atom Heart Mother charges around like a miniature power boat.

Underneath the blanket of beautiful bath art left behind by the bath bomb is silky soft, lilac coloured bath water. Unlike some Lush bath bombs the Atom Heart bath bombs scent remains through-out the entire time you are in the bath. Once out of the bath the apple scent also remains on your skin for the rest of the day.

I always come out of an Atom Heart Mother bath feeling instantly refreshed, its scent is incredibly uplifting and always gives me a real happiness-boost. I can’t help but top up its scent with the Once Upon A Time body sprayAtom Heart Mothers body spray equivalent.

Any product that has the So White/Once Upon A Time fragrance will always be one of my favourites as, as I said earlier it is one of if not my favourite Lush scent family. Since taking the colour out of the So White bath bomb back in 2019 the Lush Community have been crying out for a colourful tantamount and the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb does not disappoint! 😊

Marshmallow World Bath Bomb from Lush

Marshmallow World Bath Bomb

The Marshmallow World Bath Bomb is a member of Lush’s American Cream scent-family. The American Cream scent isn’t a favourite of mine BUT it’s a light enough fragrance that I am happy to use every now and again.

Being honest as always, the  American Cream scent has always reminded me of one of those tree-shaped car-air-fresheners. Those air-fresheners remind me of the long car journeys that I seemed to always be on as a child, which aren’t the fondest of my childhood memories; Therefore the Marshmallow World bath bomb and I from the get-go weren’t off to the best of starts…

All-things-American-Cream are however ridiculously  popular within the Lush community and after getting on quite well with the American Cream shower gel I thought I’d give the Marshmallow World bath bomb a go too.

However I feel about a products scent, if it’s pink it’s still got a good chance of impressing me. With the Marshmallow World bath bomb being so pink I found it impossible to resist so ordered a couple.

The Marshmallow World bath bomb was first released back in November 2018 as a part of a huge community favourites release, amongst other bath bombs such as; the New Blackberry, The Comforter and the Melusine bath bombs.

After selling so well, Lush decided to make the Marshmallow World bath bomb a permanent fixture and it has been a staple, all-year-round product ever since.

As soon as the Marshmallow World bath bomb touches the water a stream of pink and white bubbles begin to fizzle out of it. As it bobs around the water sending waves of pink and white here, there and everywhere a light vanilla scent with a touch of strawberry slowly fragrances the room.

If your favourite colour is pink, then the bath art that the Marshmallow World bath bomb creates will leave you spell bound. Containing Vanilla absolute, lavender oil and marshmallow root powder, the Marshmallow World bath bomb is not only soothing to your mind but your skin too.

Once the Marshmallow World bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright pink bath-water that is silky soft, to touch. The marshmallow root powder really does make a difference on your skin. Once I had got out of the bath I couldn’t believe how soft my skin felt!

Long gone are the comparisons my nose made of the American-Cream-scent and tree-shaped car-air-fresheners.

Although I’m still not a huge fan of the American Cream fragrance, favouring citrus based fragrances instead; The Marshmallow World bath bomb did really impress me. For a bath bomb that isn’t rich with organic cocoa butter like the Roller bath bomb I can’t quite believe how hydrated and smooth it left my skin. All-in-all, I’d definitely recommend this bath bomb and can see how it has lasted so long as an all-year-round product. 😊

Nana Shower Gel from Lush

Nana Shower Gel

I feel perfectly safe in saying that the Nana Shower Gel is a Lush product that thousands of Lush fans have been patiently waiting for, for YEARS. Sharing its scent with the Let the Good Times Roll fresh cleanser, it has gone down a storm within the Lush Community.

I just can’t fathom why it’s taken Lush so long to release this absolute gem of a shower gel?!? I rarely take to new Lush products straight away but Nana shower gel had me under its spell after just one use.

Nana is a new all year round product, this means it’s with us for the long haul! YAY! so many of the latest brand-new shower gel releases such as Intergalactic and Goddess have been available for only a limited time. I’d have loved to have got a couple of extra bottles of Intergalactic but unfortunately by the time I had the funds to treat myself, they had all sold out.

As its name suggests the Nana shower gel of course has bananas in. Nana shower gel is in fact a blend of wheatgerm oil mixed in with a banana and oat decoction. I cannot smell the banana in it at all, to me it really does just smell like the aforementioned fresh facial cleanser, Let the Good Times Roll – Toffee-popcorn galore!

Nana shower gel is made with a new sulphate-free and palm-free formula giving it a similar consistency to that of a Lush shower slime, this is the only thing that I didn’t quite like about Nana. While trying to lather it up I found it really easy to drop and waste blobs of it on the shower floor, with a little practice I have gotten a tiny bit better at handling it. I would still however love to see it in a more shower-gel-like consistency some time in the future.

Although I have found the Nana shower gel quite hard to control in the shower, it does lather up well and a little amount of it goes a very long way. It’s extremely hydrating too which is perfect for my dry and often really thirsty skin.

I would normally say at this point of a shower gel that I really likes review that a body lotion equivalent (if there isn’t one) needs to be made. Don’t get me wrong, I’d adore a Nana body lotion but the Nana shower gel is so incredibly hydrating that a body lotion is not actually needed after using it. It’s a lazy persons or those pushed for times dream shower gel.

Nana’s scent really does come alive when it comes into contact with the steam and hot water in the shower, although a little amount does go a very long way I find myself wanting to use a little more than necessary because it smells that good. Overall I do really, really like Nana shower gel and I can look past its different consistency. I know we’re only in January of this year but I’m going to say here and now that I believe this shower gel will be one of the best products released by Lush this year. ✨🍿✨

Prince Charming Shower Gel from Lush

Prince Charming Shower Gel

Lush’s 2020 Valentine’s Day line is already here and with that comes my first review of the year. The Prince Charming shower gel is a much loved retro-Lush-product. Long before I became an obsessive Lush-product-collector the Prince Charming shower gel graced Lush’s shelves, his reign covering the Valentine’s Day period for several years. In 2016 Lush decided to shake things up a bit and released Prince Charming in a shower cream format instead.

Fast forward to 2020 and after 2 years of no Prince Charming at all, Lush have brought it back BUT in its original format, a shower gel. Being honest as always, I have not experienced or found any huge differences between the 2 different formats but wanted to give the Prince Charming shower gel its own review regardless.

2020’s Prince Charming shower gel is a much deeper shade of red in comparison to the shower cream, it also has quite a lengthy ingredients list. It contains essential oils from grapefruit, sandalwood and geranium flowers as well as having a generous helping of fresh pomegranate juice and a blend of vanilla and marshmallow root infusions.

Living up to its name, the first word that comes to mind when I am trying to describe this shower gels scent is in fact, ‘charming’.

Its scent is often compared to the likes of the Yuzu and Cocoa shower cream. While I can pinpoint what people mean when comparing the two, I feel Prince Charming’s scent is a little more complex, having several more layers to it. I would describe Prince Charming’s scent as zesty with a hint of floral that is all rounded off and mellowed down by the blend of sweet vanilla and marshmallow roots.

Consistency wise, I think the Prince Charming shower gel is pretty close to perfect. It’s not so thick that you can hardly get it out of the bottle and not too thin that you lose it all at the slightest tip of the bottle. As I mentioned earlier, apart from the darker colour the Prince Charming shower gel is almost identical to the shower cream equivalent, so much so that I am wondering why Lush even bothered to brand it as a shower ‘gel’.

The Prince Charming shower gel goes a very long way, a blob the size of a 50p coin is more than enough to use to for the whole of your body. The scent really comes alive once you’ve got it all lathered up in the hot and steamy shower, it leaves my skin positively radiant. It not only appears brighter, it also feels smooth to the touch and I can smell its subtle fragrance on my skin for the rest of the day.

Overall I am really impressed with this shower gel, it has such an inviting scent, it’s the perfect Valentine’s shower time treat!

Yog Nog Shower Gel from Lush

Yog Nog Shower Gel.png

After somewhat of a Yog Nog drought, Lush have suddenly decided to use the Yog Nog fragrance in every format you can possibly think of, prepare yourself for the oncoming onslaught of Yog Nog scented reviews over the next few weeks! This year (2019) Yog Nog seems to be just as popular (if not more) as the long-term staple Christmas-product-family, Snow Fairy.

Todays review will be on the Yog Nog Shower Gel, SPOILER ALERT it’s probably my favourite product format of the Yog Nog fragrance to date. My first experience with Yog Nog was back in 2015 when the Yog Nog bath bomb was a part of the Christmas line it wasn’t my favourite from that year but I didn’t dislike it.

Yog Nog scent has grown on me quite a considerable amount, its fragrance is in simple terms absolutely delicious. If you have a sweet tooth and love Christmassy scented baked goods then you’ll be a fan of anything Yog Nog for sure. The fragrance makes me think of hot-sticky-toffee, custard and cinnamon sugar. Yum.

2019 has been a very good year for new Lush shower gels; If you thought that the Intergalactic shower gel was sparkly then you’ll think that the Yog Nog shower gel is full of super-sparkly, microscopic diamonds! it’s so dazzling, photos do it no justice at all. You really have to experience it for yourselves to see just how visually beautiful a shower gel it is, it’s liquid gold!

Yog Nog shower gel contains Maple syrup water, carrageenan extract, jojoba, clove bud and ylang ylang oil. It is a truly luxurious shower gel, it’s warming, moisturising and lathers up quickly. A little of it also goes a very long way but if you’re anything like me you won’t be able to help yourself and use a lot just because it looks so pretty coming out of the bottle.

Once the shower gel is in your hands and exposed to the hot water and steam its fragrance becomes oh-so-biscuity, again a little goes a very long way but I find myself using more than I need just because it looks and smells so good. Consistency wise it’s a little runnier than I’d like but still very effective as a shower gel, it leaves my skin moisturised, soft and noticeably brighter.

Its scent stays on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day, I have however heard that some people can’t smell it on their skin after an hour or 2.  I did a little research into this as I wanted to find out why and how this was possible; I discovered that there’s actually a scientific reason for this, it all depends on your skins pH levels. Mystery solved!

Overall I am really, really impressed with the Yog Nog shower gel, as I said above it’s my favourite product format in the Yog Nog scent and I am looking forward to reviewing some of the other Yog Nog goodies for you all very soon.
