Having An Out Of This World Experience In The Tub | Lush Fathers Day 2023 Range

 Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post. I recently went to White Rose Shopping Centre with Luke to check out the new Lush Fathers Day 2023 range and I thought that today I would talk to you all about the products in this range. (I know that Father’s Day can be a difficult day for some so if you’re not a fan of Fathers Day then that’s absolutely fine and I hope that you come back to read the next blog post!) 

Bath Bombs: 

Out Of This World 

It’s time to make your bath tub somewhere that is out of this world! This bath bomb is a brand new one for 2023. As you can tell by the name, this bomb is thematically inspired by space and well all things out of this world. This bath bomb not only looks cute by being designed around a sparkly astronaut but smells amazing too. This bomb contains Lime and Sweet Wild Orange Oils and Olibanum Resinoid. To me, the Olibanum and Orange combine to create a very fragrant Banana scent which goes beautifully with the Lime to create a sort of fruity Summery scent. If you remember Never Mind The Ballistics and have smelt Out Of This World then you may notice that they share the same scent. This bomb also contains Green Tea Powder and Popping Candy which help to give off am out of this world sensorial bathing experience. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who loves fruity scents or wants something spectacular this Fathers Day. Priced at £5.

Candy Wash Showder 

Who doesn’t want to wash themselves with some sweet, sweet candy? This showder isn’t for the faint hearted. If you are unaware on what a showder is then let me educate you. A showder is a shower powder. Imagine a shower product that is the perfect product to take travelling or to festivals due to it being a powder. Just grab some, let the water saturate it, massage and rinse. 

This showder contains Granulate Sugar, Calamine Powder, Clove Bud and Ylang Ylang Oils and Vanilla Absolute. The Sugar and Calamine Powder help to give substance to the powder thus ensuring that your skin is super soft once you have rinsed off Candy Wash. To me, the main scent from this comes from the Ylang Ylang and Vanilla but smells slightly like Bubblegum mixed with Plastic to me. I know that sounds revolting but weirdly it’s not the worst scent in the world. I If you have used any of the oils Creamy Candy products from Lush then you may recognise the Candy Wash scent as they are both the same scent. Priced at £16 for 230g.

Fresh As Shower Gel 

Time to feel fresh as this Fathers Day! 

Fresh As is a perfume from Lush that has been out a fair couple of years now. This year Lush decided to release the scent in a Shower Gel format. It was out last year under the Fathers Day range but under the name of ‘Rad Dad’. This shower gel contains Fresh Cucumber Infusion, Fine Sea Salt, Siberian Fir Needle, Orris and Tagetes Oils and Benzoin Resinoid and Fir Needle Absolute. To me, the most prominent scents in this gel are the Fir Needle and Cucumber. It creates a oh so fresh scent. The best way to describe the scent would be walking through a forest full of Pine on an early Spring morning. This gel is definitely a gel that would be great for those who are a bit overwhelmed when it comes to smelling Lush scents or for those who love a morning shower. Priced at £8 for a 125g bottle.

Life’s A Beach Showder 

Sometimes, we just need a warm shower and a good scrub when life is being a beach. This scrubby showder was first released alongside Candy Wash, Lemon Sherbet and Washaccino Showders at the launch of the Oxford Street store several years ago. This showder contains Fine Sea Salt, Sand, Vanilla Absolute, Jasmine Absolute, Tonka Absolute and Sandalwood Oil. The main scents that comes out in this showder is the Vanilla and Jasmine. This combination of scents creates a mainly strong clean Vanilla scent with a floral undertone which isn’t too strong. If you have smelt the Vanillary perfume from Lush then you may like this showder as it shares the same scent. The sand definitely does scrub the skin so if you like a coarse scrub then you will like this. Definitely a product for anyone who loves a good holiday. Priced at £16 for 300g.

Blue Moon Soap 

Blue Moon is coming into orbit and its time to celebrate with a good wash. 

This soap can glow in the dark! This soap contains Rapeseed Oil; Coconut Oil,Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Bergamot, Grapefruit and Almond Essential Oils. I adore the scent of this product. Bright, zingy and citrusy. The grapefruit is the star of this product. It just shines so bright,. The bergamot adds a sort of sherbet note to the scent whilst the almond adds a sort of creaminess. This scent reminds me very much of a sweet shop store but in the best way possible. Not cloying but fresh. If you have smelt anything under the Space Girl scent at Lush (I Want A Hippo For Christmas, Very Very Frightening or some of the products from the upcoming Asteroid City collaboration) and liked it then you will like this soap as it shares the same scent. Definitely a gift worthy of anyone who loves citrus scents or wants a soap that can do anything and everything. Priced at £6.

Big Bang (Create Your Own Universe) FUN 

It’s time to create a big bang in the tub! 

FUN can be used in a multitude of ways such as shampoo, soap and a bubble bar. You can even tear bits off and create whatever you want! This FUN contains Peppermint, Grapefruit, Cedarwood and Vetivert Oils. In my opinion, this creates a fresh but complex Mint scent. It’s layered and the fruit and Vetifvert really help to add some depth to the Mint. If you have smelt anything under the Intergalactic scent family at Lush and liked it then you will like this too as they share the same scent. I quite like this FUN but it does take me quite a long time to get through a bar of FUN. Definitely for those who can never decide on what they want or want something that will uplift them no matter what. Priced at £9.50 for a 200g packet of FUN.
