So I’m trucking along, trying to use my bath stash. I’ve been using the 93000 miles shower jelly for a while now so I thought I would review that, the star dust bath bomb and a couple of the solid perfumes for you.
Keep on reading if you’d like to know what I think of these products.
I try to take a fancy bath in the jacuzzi bath tub at least once a week. This week I used the Stardust bath bomb from the Lush Christmas range. It’s very deceptive. In it’s solid form, it’s just white star but once you drop it in the tub and it fizzes a bit, it starts to turn the water this beautiful, shimmery, milky, pastel blue. There are also little multi colored star confetti inside. It’s lovely. The scent is just heavenly. It’s a sweet vanilla with hints of florals and bergamot. I love it. The only reason this is my least favorite of the products I’m writing about today is because the morning after this particular bath, I woke up covered in hives. I know that’s just my body and I in absolutely no way blame Lush, but when stuff like that happens, to me at least, it makes it kind of difficult for me to like a product. Also! After two days of work outs and showers, I’m STILL covered in the glitter from this bath bomb! It’s a very fine glitter so it’s hardly noticeable unless you’re up close and personal but I still think people should be warned.
I bought the 93000 Miles shower jelly because of it’s promise to ease muscle soreness. I have been working out a lot over the last year and if there’s anything I would love help with, it’s easing muscle soreness. If you’re not familiar with Lush shower jellies, they’re soaps that are the consistency of jello. They jiggle like jello, they lather like soap, and they are absolutely delightful. The scent on this product is so good! It reminds me a lot of cinnamint gum. I know it has eucalyptus, mint, and cinnamon. I don’t know if it physically helps with soreness after work outs, but it certainly helps wake me up from post work out fatigue. I like it.
I was surfing the lush app a while ago and I fell in love with the idea of the Death and Decay perfume. So when I went to the Pasadena Lush store, I had to smell it!! It’s so good!! I apologize for the excessive exclamations but it’s just that good. It smells like funeral flowers and mortician’s wax. It has notes of rose, jasmine, and ylang ylang. The super cool lady at the shop told me to layer the All Good Things scent over it. It got better. Once I layered it, smelled like a full blown funeral. All Good Things is sort of musky and almost smokey to me. It smells like candles and incense burning in a church. It has notes of cedar wood, rose, and tonka. The website describes it as “A sweet, boozy stumble down a dark basement staircase will leave you in a blissed-out cloud of candyfloss and black pepper” A perfect description! I would like to issue another glitter warning. I bought the solid perfumes of both of these scents. All Good things solid perfume has a ton of gold glitter in it. It looks a little crazy in the tin but once you put it on your body, its a very subtle golden shimmer. I like to wear them together and separate. When I wear them together, I like to call it All Good Things Die and Decay. These very well may become my favorite Lush product.
One of the things I really enjoy about these solid perfumes is whether you wear them together or separately, the smell evolves as you wear it through out the day. They get sweeter the longer you wear them. I can’t rave enough about them.
