Thanks to the lovely friend_of_tofu, I have absolutely loads of Lush goodies in my bathroom. Sorry for the delayed write up L - I hope to update semi-regularly and I do really appreciate your generosity.

BATH BASE: I used The Carrot for my bathwater. It bubbled up very well and like all Lush bath products, created a silky soft bath. The smell wasn't particularly strong, but I didn't mind really as sometimes when having a Lush bonanza bath, you lose a bit of smellegent notes in the blend. The green, plastic carrot top bit seemed a bit pointless since it's headed straight for the bin, so I'm knocking a point off. 9/10.

FACE: Turkish Delight is one of the more expensive products, and I use it sparingly as a face wash. The *real* rose-scented goodness and creaminess work a treat on combination skin. 10/10.

HAIR: A bottle marked 'mystery shampoo' was almost certainly I Love Juicy, as the blast of grapefruit indicated. It produces masses of squeaky clean bubbles and invigorates the scalp. The smell can be a bit full on, but would be a brilliant for an early morning shower. 7/10.

HAIR: Followed by Veganese conditioner - I do love American Cream for it's gorgeous vanilla scent, but it's way too heavy and leaves my hair feeling greasy. Veganese doesn't have much of a strong scent, but it's very light and very useful for long, tangly hair. 8/10.

FACE: post bath I moisturised my face with just a wee bit of Gorgeous moisturiser - another very expensive treat. As the Turkish Delight is so soft, I sometimes skip this step but felt I needed a bit more help today since my skin's been a bit flakey. It's a bit soupy, not as thick as other Lush moiusturisers I've used, but a little bit goes a long way. I didn't really get much of a strong scent which was a bit disappointing, and based on the price, would give it a 5/10.

NB: Yesterday's post didn't appear here for some reason so I'm reposting it. I have also decided to include emotibombs in this archive list as well, since there aren't very many of them and they're also shower products. Please feel free to contribute further reviews of these or any other products, and they will be added later; I've already included those reviews I've had so far.

SMOOTHIES

Smoothies are a bit of an odd conceit, a creamy body soap which doesn't really lather much but is very gentle. They aren't the thing if you're really dirty, but they are excellent for those of us who are on the sensitive side. In terms of value for money, they generally don't go nearly as far as soap, but they have additional moisturising benefits to consider. I regard them as more of a treat than an everyday thing. Some people also use them for facial washes, because they're so delicate. They're slightly more suited to showers than to baths, but can be used in either.

Smoothies: Creamed Almond & Coconut; Dreamwash; Gumback Express; Lush Lime Smoothie; Turkish Delight )

Dammit Lush, bring back Scrumptious!

EMOTIBOMBS

Also a sui generis Lush conceit, these are meant to be the equivalent of bath ballistics for people who don't have baths. Obviously they don't have the same impact on the skin as a bath product and are mostly perfume, chosen to highlight particular moods. Opinions on emotibombs seem sharply divided; many people regard them as quite pointless, or otherwise disappointing. Others really enjoy them as a sort of shower aromatherapy. Although a single emotibomb is supposed to do for a single shower, they can also, like bath products, be broken up and eked out further if one doesn't want the whole thing at once.

Emotibombs: Sex In The Shower; Too Drunk; Up You Gets; Up The Wooden Hill; Double-Fast Luck )
