Lush: Sex bomb

IMG_7773

Enostavno ne morem da ne bi ocenjevala teh Lushevih kopalnih bombic, saj je velika večina res čudovitih. To je bila še ena izmed tistih, ki so v prodaji že nekaj časa, a je nikoli nisem uspela poskusit. Tokrat sem se ob obisku trgovine hitro odločila za njo in jo takoj še isti večer poskusila.

I just have to review these bath bombs from Lush, because the majority of them are really wonderful. This has been one of those, that have been on sale for some time now, but I never had a chance to try it out. This time, while visiting the store, I quickly decided to buy it and try it the same night.

IMG_7776

Bombica je rožnata in vijolična z vrtnico (?) na vrhu. Prevladuje rožnata barva. Bombica diši nežno, cvetlično s pridihom sladkosti. Vonj je nežen in pomirja. Prevladujeta muškat in jasmin. Ko bombico spustim v vodo se vonj po kopalnici razširi zelo hitro. Ker je bombica v glavnem rožnata je tudi voda rožnata. Ko se polovica ali malenkost več bombice stopi, na površje priplava cvet. Cvet je mehak in rahlo sluzast. Čez čas cvet razpade in po vodi plavajo cvetni listi.

The bomb is pink and purple with a rose (?) on the top. The pink color dominates.  The bomb has a delicate, flowery scent with a hint of sweetness. The scent is gentle and soothing. Muscat and jasmine dominate. When I release the bomb in the water the scent spreads quickly throughout the bathroom. Because the bomb is mainly pink, the water turns pink as well. When half or slightly more of the bomb melts, a flower comes up to the water surface. The flower is soft and slightly slimy. After a while the flower falls apart and there are flower petals left floating on the surface.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, natrijev seskvikarbonat, parfum, sojino mleko, sintetični mošus, absolut jasmina, olje muškatne kadulje, olja ylang-ylanga, titanov dioksid, limonene, linalool, barvilo 18050, barvilo 61585, cvet iz riževega papirja.

Kopanje v kopeli je sproščujoče, cvetni listi pa dajejo občutek razkošja. Edino kar mi je žal, je da ni več cvetov v bombici. Cvetni listi čez čas razpadejo saj so riževega papirja, tako da v banji po kopanju ni ostankov. Bombica prav tako ne pušča na banji madežev, kar je meni zelo pomembno. 🙂 Koža je po kopanju dišeča in ni izsušena, kar je vedno plus. Za kopalno bombico boste odšteli 5,50€.

Bathing is relaxing, the flower petals give a sense of luxury. The only thing I regret is that there aren’t more flowers in the bomb. The petals break down after a while because they are made out of rice paper, so there is no residue after bathing. The bomb doesn’t leave any stains on the tub either, which is very important to me. 🙂 The skin is left fragrant and not dry, which is always a plus. You will pay 5,50€ for the bath bomb.

Lush: Blackberry bath bomb

Ta kopalna bombica je po mojem mnenju v prodaji že celo večnost, jaz pa sem jo kupila šele letos. Bombica je vijolična in na vrhu je vtisnjen napis BOMB. Moja je sicer imela par belo-vijoličnih pikic, ampak mislim, da je to bilo zato, ker sem jo slučajno zmočila in niso take ponavadi.

This bath bomb, in my opinion, has been sold in Lush for ages and I finally bought it this year.  The bomb is purple with the word BOMB imprinted on the top. Mine had a few white-purple dots, but I think it was because it got wet and they usually don’t look like that.

IMG_7191

Dišala je zelo močno in po prejšnji (ocena tukaj), ko sem bila razočarana, mi je bilo všeč, da lepo diši. Že samo ime pove, da diši po robidah, vendar pa je vonj robid pomešan tudi z vonjem bergamotke. Voda se obarva vijolično a je še vedno prosojna. Video kopalne bombice v akciji lahko vidite spodaj.

It smelled really strong and after the last one (review here), when I was disappointed, I liked that it smelled so nice. The name itself let’s us know that it smells like blackberries, but the blackberry scent is mixed with the scent of bergamot. The water stains purple, but it’s still transparent. Video of the bath bomb in action can be seen below.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, olje bergamotke, olje kadila, barvilo 18050, barvilo 42045.

Kar mi je bilo všeč in kaj imam rada je to, da me v sredini bombice preseneti sporočilo. Tokrat je pisalo Boom Boom! Super bi blo, če bi Lush natisnil na primer 100 različnih sporočil in jih naključno dajal v kopalne krogle, tako da nikoli ne bi vedeli kaj bi dobili. 😉 Kože mi ni izsušila, saj vsebuje tudi olja, kar je vedno velik plus. Koža je bila prav tako lepo odišavljena po kopeli, vonj se je obdržal kakšne tri ure.

What I liked and what I love is when I’m surprised by a note, hidden in the middle of the bomb. This time it said Boom Boom! It would be great if Lush would print for example a 100 different messages and randomly place them in the bath bombs, so you would never know, what you would get. 😉 It didn’t dry out my skin, because it contains oils as well, which is always a big plus. The skin was nicely perfumed after the bath, the scent lingered for about three hours.

IMG_7198

Vse je bilo super dokler nisem stopila iz banje, saj se je na površini vode nabralo olje (olje bergamotke in/ali olje kadila) in se posledično oprijelo roba banje. Še slabše je bilo, ko sem poskušala to zdrgnit, saj samo z vodo ni šlo. Po sproščujoči kopeli pa se mi res ni dalo še banje čistiti. Tako, da ji dajem to v minus. Ne vem, če se to vedno dogaja ali je bilo kaj narobe z mojo? Kakšne so vaše izkušnje?

Everything was great until I stepped out of the bathtub, because oil accumulated on the water surface (bergamot oil and/or frankincense oil) and subsequently clinged to the edge of the tub. It was even worse when I tried to rub it off, because it wouldn’t  with water only. After a relaxing bath I really didn’t want to clean the bathtub. So that was a minus. I don’t know if this always happens or there was something wrong with mine? What are your experiences?

Lush: Frozen

V redu, priznam, da nisem preverila sestavin oziroma kako bi naj dišala tale krogla, ampak sem jo kupila, ker je še nisem preizkusila. In mogoče to ni bila najboljša ideja. Torej kopalna bombica je svetlo modre barve, na sredini je temno modra plast. Glavne note bi naj bile grenivka in tunizijski neroli. In čeprav mi grenivka zelo lepo, sveže, poživljajoče diši, mi tale krogla na noben način ni dišala po grenivki.

OK, I admit I didn’t check the ingredients or how this bath bomb is supposed to smell, but I bought it because I haven’t tried it yet. And maybe that wasn’t the best idea. So this bath bomb is light blue with a dark blue layer in the middle. The main notes are supposed to be grapefruit and Tunisian neroli. And although grapefruit smells really nice, fresh, invigorating to me, this bomb didn’t smell in any way like grapefruit.

Torej sam vonj je izjemno blag, meni po ničemer ni dišala, kar me je seveda razočaralo, saj imam dobre izkušnje z Lushevimi kopalnimi bombami. Opazovanje bombice kako se topi je po drugi strani pravo doživetje. Iz temno modre sredice se vali modra barva, ki me je presenetila z morjem srebrnih bleščic, ki so poplesavale po gladini. Ko se je bombica stopila so bleščice na vodi bile tako goste, da je izgledalo kot oljni madež. Sama voda je temno nebesno modra. Čudovita. Čeprav je kopanje v tej kopeli bilo res čarobno na pogled, pa mi ni prineslo zadovoljstva, ker ni dišalo. Prav tako je bleščic toliko, da se mi je koža bleščala in tudi po dolgem drgnjenju jih nisem uspela popolnoma odstranit. Čeprav me to načeloma ne moti, pa bi rada imela opcijo, da se ne svetim kot disko krogla. 😀 Vonj se na koži ne obdrži.

So the scent itself is really mild, it didn’t smell like anything to me which was of course disappointing, because I have good experience with Lush bath bombs. Watching the bomb dissolve is on the other hand a real experience. Blue color fizzes from the deep blue core, which surprised me with a sea of silver glitter that pranced on the surface. The glitter on the water was so thick, that when the bomb melted, it looked like an oil slick. The water itself is dark sky-blue. Wonderful. Although bathing in this bath was magical to look at, it didn’t bring me satisfaction because of the lack of scent. Because of the huge amount of glitter my skin sparkled and even after a long rub I couldn’t get them all off. Even though in principal I don’t mind it, I would like to have an option not to shine as a disco ball. 😀 The scent doesn’t linger on the skin.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, bleščice, parfum, grenivkino olje, nerolijevo olje, vrtnično olje, vinski kamen, natrijev lavrat sulfat, lavril betain, lilial, hydroxycitronellal, geraniol, limonene, linalool, srebrne bleščice, barvilo 42090, barvilo 42053.

Zmotilo me je tudi to, da je bila kad po kopanju prekrita z bleščicami in kljub tuširanju se niso vse sprale. Kože mi ni izsušila, ker je vedno plus. Za bombico sem odštela 6,95€ in žal je več ne bom kupila. Je veliko drugih, ki so mi veliko bolj všeč.

What also bothered me is that the bath tub was covered with glitter after bathing and despite washing it, they didn’t wash off. It didn’t dry out my skin, which is always a plus. I paid 6,95€ for the bath bomb and I won’t repurchase it. There are many others that I like much more.

Lush: Melting Marshmallow Moment

Lush Melting Marshmallow Moment (MMM) je luksuzna olja kopel. MMM sem izbrala na podlagi vonja, saj me spominja na njihov gel za kopanje Snow Fairy oziroma če ne poznate tega gela na Bazooko (žvečilni gumi). Torej pričakujete lahko sladek, bombončkast vonj.

Lush Melting Marshmallow Moment (MMM) is a luxury oil bath. I picked MMM because the scent reminded me of their shower gel Snow Fairy or if you don’t know the gel then Bazooka (chewing gum). So you can expect a sweet, candy scent.

IMG_6668

MMM je oblikovana v ploščati valj, ki je na eni strani rumen, na drugi strani pa rožnat s srebrnimi bleščicami. Oljna kopel ni velika kot kopalna bombica, ampak se vseeno dalj časa topi v vodi. Kopalna bombica se razgradi v minuti do dveh, medtem ko oljna kopel potrebuje dobrih šest ali sedem minut. Razlika med njima je tudi ta, da čeprav je barvna. vode ne obarva, ampak ji minimalno spremeni odtenek. Razlika skoraj ni bila opazna. Torej ni barvne in zanimive eksplozije, kot je pri kopalni bombici.

MMM is in a flat cylinder form, which is yellow on one and pink with silver glitter on the other side. The oil bath is not as big as the bath bomb, however it does take more time to dissolve in water. The bath bomb dissolves in a minute or two while the oil bath needs good six or seven minutes. The difference between them is also that, although the oil bath is colored, it doesn’t color the water, just changes the tint slightly. The difference was hardly noticeable. So there isn’t any colorful explosion as it is with the bath bomb.

Glede na to, da je oljna kopel, je na vodi tanka oljnata plast. Koža je po kopanju izredno mehka in navlažena, uporaba losjona ali kreme ni potrebna. Tudi vonj je dovolj intenziven, da je koža po kopanju do dve uri odišavljena. Kad je potrebno po kopanju umiti, saj se na dnu poležejo bleščice pa tudi olje lahko ostane na kadi.

Due to the fact, that this is an oil bath, there is a thin oily layer on the water. The skin is really soft and moisturized after bathing, the use of body lotion or body butter is not necessary. The scent is also intense enough so the skin smells like the bath for up to two hours. You do need to wash the bathtub after, because the glitter can gather on the bottom of it and also oil can remain on the bathtub.

Meni je oljna kopel všeč in si jo bom še privoščila, saj je občutek na koži enkraten, ne bo pa nadomestila mojih kopalnih bombic, ki bodo pri meni ostale na prvem mestu. Čeprav sam video ni tako zanimiv, kot pri kopalnih bombicah, pa sem ga vseeno posnela, da dobite občutek kako to izgleda v praksi.

I do like the oil bath and I will buy it again, because the feeling on the skin is excellent, but it will not substitute my bath bombs, which are staying in first place. Although the video is not as interesting as the bath bomb videos are, I still made it so you can get a sense on how it looks in practice.

Lush Lover Lamp

Ker je valentinovo pred vrati sem morala poskusit vsaj en izdelek iz Lusha iz te kolekcije. Lover Lamp mi je hitro padla v oči, saj so se mi srčki na bombici kar zasvetili.

Because Valentines is close I had to try at least one product from Lush from that collection. Lover Lamp stood out in my eyes, because the hearts on the bath bomb just lit up. 

lll

Bombica je bele barve s tremi rdečimi srčki. Dišala bi naj po olju brazilske pomaranče in vaniliji. Preden sem bombico vrgla v vodo sem citruse kar fejst vohala, ko se je pa bombica stopila pa je prišla do izraza vanilija, medtem ko citrusov več nisem vohala tako močno. To me sploh ne moti saj imam vanilijo zelo rada. Iz bombice so izplavali trije veliki rdeči srčki in nešteto majhnih srčkov, ki so se postoma topili v vodi. Bombica vsebuje tudi bleščice, ki pa niso tako opazne, saj postane voda mlečno bela. Bombico v akciji si lahko ogledat v videu spodaj.

The bomb is white with three red hearts. It’s supposed to smell like Brazilian orange oil and vanilla. Before I put the bath bomb in the water I could smell the citrus quite well, but when the bomb melted I could smell vanilla more. I don’t mind that because I really like vanilla. Three big red hearts and numerous small hearts came out of the bomb which dissolved gradually. The bath bomb also contains glitter, which is not that noticeable, because the water turns milky white. You can see the bath bomb in action in the video down below.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, kakavovo maslo, titanov dioksid, absolut vanilije iz pravične trgovine, olje brazilske pomaranče, organsko ekstra deviško olivno olje, organsko ricinusovo olje, užitni rdeči srčki, limonene, parfum, zlate bleščice, barvilo 14700.

Na gladini vode sem opazila oljnato plast o čemu pričajo tudi sestavine, saj vsebuje bombica veliko olj in kakavovo maslo. Koža je zaradi tega mehka in navlažena. Na koži sicer ostane rahlo masten sloj, ki me v teh mrzlih mesecih ne moti. Bleščice se tudi prilepijo na kožo, zato priporočam, da se po kopanju še na hitro stuširate, da odplaknete bleščice. Lahko jih pa seveda pustite na koži. 🙂 Meni je bila bombica všeč in sigurno si bom kupila še eno, ali dve, ali tri… Zaenkrat je še na voljo v spletni trgovini Lush, kako je s stanjem v trgovinah pa ne bi vedela.

I did notice an oily layer on the surface of the water which is supported by the ingredients, because the bomb does contain a lot of oils and cocoa butter. The skin is soft and moisturized because of that. There is a slightly oily layer left on the skin, but in these cold months I don’t mind. The glitter does also stick to the skin so I recommend a quick shower after the bath, to wash away the glitter. Or you can leave it on the skin. 🙂 I liked the bath bomb and I will definitely buy one more, or two, or three… It’s still available in the Lush online shop, but I don’t know about the situation in stores.

Lush Sakura

Sakura je, po mojem mnenju, najlepša kopalna bombica od Lusha. Je mlečno bele barve spridihom rožnate, z rožnatimi in zeleno-modrimi pikami. Na vrhu ima skupek rožnatih in zelenih solnih (?) kristalov. Lahko bi jo gledala in vohala cel dan. 🙂 Glavne note so mimoza, jasmin in citrusi, kar nam tudi pove, da je bolj nežnega cvetličnega vonja. Meni čudovito diši. Kot majhna rožica s pridihom sladkosti.

Sakura is, in my opinion, the most beautiful bath bomb from Lush. It’s milky white with a hint of pink, with pink and teal dots. On the top it has a bunch of pink and teal salt (?) crystals. I could look at it and smell it the whole day. 🙂 The main notes are mimosa, jasmine and citrus, which tells us that it has a more delicate flowery scent. I love the scent. It’s like a small flower with a hint of sweetness.

sakura_lt-360x360

Ker je bombica svetla ni tiste barvne eksplozije, kot smo je vajeni pri večini Lushevih bombicah. Vode ne obarva, kot lahko vidite tudi v videu spodaj. Med kopanjem sem opazila da je na vodi zelo tanka oljnata plast, kar bi lahko bilo limonino olje. Koža je po kopanju rahlo odišavljena in navlažena. Čeprav bo mogoče kdo razočaran, ker ni bilo nobene barvne eksplozije, ampak meni je tako lepa in tudi diši mi zelo lepo, da jo bom sigurno še kupila. Cena bombice je 5,50€.

Because the bath bomb is light there is no colorful explosion that we are used to with most of the Lush bath bombs. It doesn’t color the water either as you can see in the video below. I did notice a really thin oily layer on the water which could be the citrus oil. The skin is slightly scented and moisturized after bathing. Although some of you may be disappointed because there was no colorful explosion I myself love the way it smells and looks so I will buy it again. The price is 5,50€.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, fina morska sol, limonino olje, absolut mimoze, absolut pomarančnih cvetov, absolut jasmina, izvleček gardenije, citral, limonene, barvilo 18050, barvilo 42045.

Lush The Experimenter

Lush Experimenter me je pritegnil zaradi videza. Kopalna bombica je šesterokotnik, modre in rozaste na eni in bele ter rumene barve na drugi strani. Obe polovici sta zalepljeni skupaj z vijolično plastjo. Tudi samo ime je zanimivo: Experimenter. Eksperiment. Hm…le zakaj se imenuje tako? 🙂 Radovednost me je seveda premagala in kaj hitro sem jo poskusila. Glavna nota je vanilija, ki mi zelo lepo diši, če le ne diši umetno.

Lush Experimenter attracted me because of it’s appearance. The bath bomb is a hexagon, blue and pink on one and white and yellow on the other side. Both halves are glued together with a purple layer. The name itself is interesting: Experimenter. Experiment. Why is it named like that? 🙂 Curiosity got the best of me and I had to try it. The main note is vanilla, which I like as long as it doesn’t smell artificially.

Lush-The-Experimenter-Review

Sama bombica meni ne diši po vaniliji. Diši po Lushu. 🙂 Vsi, ki poznate Lush, veste o čem govorim. Bombica je mešanica cvetličnega, sadnega in sladkega vonja, kjer nič ne izstopa, ampak note sodelujejo druga z drugo. Vonj je blag in na koži se obdrži par ur. Gledanje te bombice kako se topi v vodi je pravo doživetje. Iz bombice na gladini vode plešejo rumena, modra, rožnata barva, ki se skupaj mešajo v zeleno, potem modro zeleno in na koncu v temno zeleno barvo. Ker so v bombici drobne bleščice se te v vodi svetlikajo in se tudi prilepijo na kožo. Kožo je potrebno dobro umiti po kopanju, če ne želite da bleščice ostanejo na koži.

The bomb itself doesn’t smell like vanilla. It smells like Lush. 🙂 Everyone that is familiar with Lush knows what I’m talking about. The bomb is a mixture of flowery, fruity and sweet scent, where nothing stands out, but the notes work together. The scent is mild and stays on the skin for a few hours. Watching this bomb fizzing in the water is a true adventure. The bomb makes yellow, blue and pink color dance together on the surface and then mix together into a green, then blue green and lastly dark green color. Since the bath bomb does contain shimmer, the water sparkles and the shimmer does stick to your skin. You do need to wash thoroughly after bathing if you don’t want the shimmer to stay on the skin.

Sestavine: natrijev bikarbonat, citronska kislina, parfum, pokajoči bonbončki, vetiverjevo olje, absolut tonke, absolut vanilije iz pravične trgovine, vinski kamen, voda, titanov dioksid, natrijev lavrat sulfat, lavril betain, kumarin, eugenol, limonene, linalool, kalcijev natrijev borosilikat, kositrov oksid, zlate bleščice, barvilo 42090, barvilo 45410, barvilo 45350 (Lush.si)

Kože mi ne izsuši, kar je vedno plus, še posebej pozimi, ko je moja koža izredno občutljiva. Za kopalno bombico sem odštela 6,95€ kar se mi za občasno razvajanje ne zdi veliko in jaz jo bom še sigurno kupila.

It doesn’t dry out my skin, which is always a plus, especially in the winter time, when my skin is extremely sensitive. I paid 6,95€ which is OK for an occasional indulgence. See the bomb in action in the video above.
