Welcome to a brand new blog post. I recently went to Lush White Rose to check out the new Lush X Super Mario Bros Movie collaboration range and I thought that today I would talk to you all about it
Mamma mia, Mario has been turned into a Shower Gel and he smells amazing! This shower gel contains Persian Lime, Black Pepper, Aniseed, Benzoin Resinoid and Fresh Pomegranate Juice. These all mingle together to create an intensely spicy Cola scent. For me the Pomegranate Juice is more for the colour of the gel than anything but it does add a touch of sweetness just like the sweetness that you expect to find in that iconic red can of Cola. I love this scent. The Black Pepper and Aniseed mingle together to give a truly nostalgic scent whilst the Lime just helps to heighten the scent for me. I know that Cola sounds like a very unique scent to shower or bathe in but trust me it works! If you know anyone who loves Cola or Mario then this is definitely something that you should get them. I’m glad that I have purchased a big bottle so I can use it without rationing it. I alos think that this scent will be perfect for those cold days where you want a scent to pick your mood up and make sure that you feel invigorated enough to get on with the day. If you have shopped at Lush before then you may know this scent by a different name. Those names include Santa Baby Lip Scrub and Santa’s Christmas Shower Cream. Priced at £8 for a 120g bottle.
You can’t have Mario without having Luigi! This shower gel contains Bergamot, Brazilian Orange and Neroli Oils, Rose and Orange Flower Absolutes and Fresh Apple Juice,. I know that this sounds like a very odd concoction but these ingredients mixed together creates a very sharp Apple scent which is perfect for the beginning of Spring. The main sort of note for me that I can detect other than Apple is Rose but its not strong and just adds a sort of fresh floral note to the background which I quite like. If you have ever tried the So White, Once Upon A Time, Rumba or Atom Heart Mother products from Lush then you will love this shower gel as it is the same scent as the aforementioned products. I quite adore this scent but I have to be in the perfect mood for it or it has to be that sort of sunny yet slight breeze sort of style of weather to make me go for it but I am glad that is is available in a Shower Gel! To me, due to the Fresh Apple Juice this does have a little bit more of a punchier Apple scent to it which I really enjoy. Priced at £8 for a 120g bottle.
It’s time to defeat Bowser in the shower! Let’s a-go! This Shower Jelly contains Cinnamon Stick and Star Anise Infusion, Cinnamon Leaf, Clove Leaf, Lime, Dark Sumatran Patchouli, and Brazilian Orange Oils and Benzoin Resinoid. I love this scent. It’s spicy, citrusy and creamy. What’s not to love? To me the main scents are the spices especially the Patchouli and Cinnamon alongside the Clove whilst the Lime helps to boost the spices just like in the Mario Gel and the Benzoin Resinoid adds a creamy note that takes a while to detect. If you have smelt the Hot Toddy Gel before from Lush before and loved it then you will love this Jelly too as it shares the same scent as Hot Toddy. I have been waiting for a Hot Toddy Jelly for years so I knew that I had to have this as soon as I smelt it. It really does smell like a Hot Toddy drink and I think that it represents Bowser quite well in my opinion! Definitely worth getting if you love spicy scents or love being the villain or chaotic in life. Priced at £6.50 for a 100g tub.
It’s time to save Princess Peach from the head of the Shower! This Shower Jelly contains Fresh Peach Infusion, Organic Sweet Orange, Buchu and Litsea Cubeba Oils, Olibanum Resinoid and Champaca Absolute. I was surprised when I smelt this brand new scent for Lush. I was expecting synthetic Peach with a big hit of floral but that’s not what this is. To me, the Peach Infusion, Orange, Buchu and Litsea Cubeba mingle together to create a sort of fresh yet slightly sugary Peach and Pineapple scent whilst the other ingreidnetrs help to push them even further. I was unsure on the addition of Champaca but I think that in this it helps to add that fizziness to the scent I’m also a touch confused at how this smells of Pineapple when there is no Pineapple in the product but if you know me then you will know that I love Pineapple. If you love fresh and fruity scents then I would definitely recommend trying this or if you want to smell something that reminds you of Haribo Tangfastics then I’d definitely say go and give this product a sniff. I can’t wait for Summer to kick in as I think that this will be an amazing scent for the Summer time and will be very surprised if Lush do not keep this scent on after the Mario Collab. It is amazing! Priced at £6.50 for a 100g tub.
The question on everyones lips is what is in the box? This bath bomb really is a mystery. This bath bomb comes in a variation of six different scents so instead of stating what is in inside all six I thought that I would just state the scents. You have Big which is a sea breeze scent that contains Red Mandarin, Sexy Peel which is a citrus scent that contains Grapefruit Cinders which is a scent that contains Almond, Honey I Washed The Kids, a scent that contains Orange and Bergamot but smells like a mix of honey and toffee, Avocado Co-Wash, a scent that smells sort of like Lime Cheesecake and Outback Mate, a scent that contains Eucalpytus and Lemongrass. Inside of these bombs is a surprise soap that is themed around Super Mario Bros and is in the same scent as the bomb so if you get a bomb that smells of Big then the soap will too. In stores, these bombs are in a box together which means there is a good chance that you will get a mystery bomb unless you know what all six scents smell like. These are a great product to give as a gift and are massive. These bombs around 600g so they are pretty heavy! I picked up one in what I believe is the Big scent which I love as its one of the scents from Lush that evokes the beginning of Spring to me along with Dragons Egg, Sex Bomb and Sakura. I get why some may be a bit hesitant to get one of these as they are on the more expensive side for a bomb but they are massive and you get two products for the price and you could definitely chop this bomb into two so its not too bad when you actually think about it Priced at £14.
Who doesn’t love a gold coin? This soap contains Bergamot, Brazilian Orange and Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. This shares the same scent as Honey I Washed The Kids but is vegan. The coconut oil ensures that it is nourishing to the skin. There is also glitter in the soap for those who love glitter. I love Honey I Washed The Kids and I love that the formulation has been tweaked so that vegans can enjoy it. Priced at £5.
Who doesn’t want to smell like the iconic Princess of Video Games? This spray contains Organic Sweet Wild Orange, Buchu and Litsea Cubeba Oils, Benzoin Resinoid and Champaca Absolute. To me, this smells just like the Shower Jelly mentioned earlier in this blog post. Fizzy, sweet and fruity. Peach and Pineapple in a sort of fizzy sour sweet way to me. Amazing. I can definitely imagine this being a great scent to spritz and wear when the weather is warm for a week in England. I love it. I love how the Champaca just helps to push the scent further without taking over in regards to the fruity ingredients in this spray. If you like fruity scents then I think that you will love this scent. Priced at £30.
