Lush Tropical Jungle Body Lotion Review

Tropical Jungle Body Lotion:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This lotion was a Kitchen Exclusive back in April of last year. I think they may have released the lotion in the Lush Kitchen earlier this year too, but I’m unsure. Either way, if this is a product you are interested in or a product that you have somehow got your hands on and happen to fall in love with, you’re going to find it very difficult to stock up on! It isn’t available in stores all year, and isn’t even a seasonal product!

Some people will hate the scent of this lotion. Think pine trees, think musky salt, think bitter under-ripe bananas. It is a scent that does catch in the throat quite a bit if you inhale it a little too much. If the smell of the great outdoors – the woodsy, foresty, jungly smell isn’t your sort of thing, I’d steer WELL away from this lotion! It has quite a heady, humid sort note to it which really enhances and brings out outdoorsy scents within this lotion.

This lotion is RUNNY. It is EXTREMELY thin. I have spilled bits of this lotion on multiple occasions – nothing tragic, but nonetheless it is quite irritating!

This lotion being so thin means that often you will find you need to apply a lot more of the stuff to actually feel moisturised for a decent amount of time.

This lotion can feel slightly tacky on the skin for some time after application. This doesn’t bother me much at all, but I can see how it could bother a lot of people. It is definitely a lotion where I have to wash my hands after application!

The scent being sort of musky and salty in nature does remind me a tiny bit of perspiration. It doesn’t smell bad, but it does have this humid saltiness to it.

This lotion can go down pretty fast. It has lasted me a good amount of time – a little under a year and 3 months in fact, but that is because it isn’t a lotion that I use daily. Each application would use up quite a bit of product.

The first ingredient on the ingredients list for this product is water. That’s never a good sign when it comes to lotions! It is somewhat of a filler ingredient, which is a shame because this lotion was pretty expensive.


 

Pros:

Okay, so I actually sort of fell in love with this lotion. I’m really upset that I used it up to be honest. If this comes out in the kitchen and you happen to see it, and it isn’t sold out, buy it. You might not love it at first, but trust me, it will grow on you! This lotion is truly experience enhancing. It is just the perfect lotion to use whenever you’re going to be outdoors and in the sunshine!

The scent of this lotion is something very special. It really does smell like a mixture between a being in a pine tree forest and a being in a tropical jungle. And I say being in, because the scents truly feel like you are there, in that forest, in that tropical jungle. I know it sounds strange, but the scent of this jungle is very adventurous and outdoorsy, and makes me feel more adventurous and outdoorsy when I use it! It smells absolutely gorgeous, I love it! There’s a definite sweetness to it that smells to me like bananas. I don’t know, I can see a lot of people hating the scent of this lotion and I really wasn’t sure of it at first – which is why it is so important to actually use up an entire product before making a judgement on it!

I hate that this lotion is thin, but I love how the lotion feels once applied. It makes me feel fresh and truly moisturised, and over time, once the lotion has sunk in, my skin is left feeling velvetty smooth and plump. This body lotion is definitely one that works – it makes your skin feel moisturised and healthy!

The scent is strong. This is a scent that 100% will cling to your skin all day, as well as on any clothes that your lotioned-up skin comes into contact with.

My skin, without fail, looks 100% better after having applied this lotion to it. This lotion somehow makes my skin appear slightly darker, much more healthy, more even in tone and texture and provides a gorgeous sheen to my skin too. This lotion was an absolute must for days when I wanted to venture outside with my legs on show!


 

Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I loved this lotion, and I’m pretty darn sad that I have used it up! I’m really hoping that there is a mainline lotion that has a similar affect – a scent that makes you feel all adventurous! I loved loved loved this lotion! Some times I’m still slightly unsure about what I think of the scent, but most of the time all I have for this lotion is pure love. I’m so glad that I randomly decided to add this lotion to my order when I went online to buy some shampoo bars last year. It completely surpassed my expectations! I do wish that water wasn’t the main ingredient for this lotion, but it isn’t a big problem for me. The effects of the lotion are more important, right?

Overall, I’m going to rate this a 5/5* rating, without a doubt! I’m not even a person that uses lotion religiously but wow, this lotion… I truly do hope Lush has some more amazing ones in its mainline!

Lush Blackberry Bath Bomb Bath Bomb Review

Okay, so it might be confusing that I have “Bath Bomb Bath Bomb” in the title for this review, but that’s because the bath bomb’s full name is actually “Blackberry Bath Bomb”, and the product itself IS a Bath Bomb. In my reviews I always write out the product’s full name as well as the type of product that it is, so… Just bear with the weird title of this one!

My partner bought me the lovely Happy Bathday gift set from Lush for my birthday back in October. I only just used this bath bomb from that gift set, here is my review for it!


Blackberry Bath Bomb Bath Bomb:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This bath bomb is pretty much a case of what you see is what you get. It is purple, and turns the bath water a shade of purple. It smells exactly how it smells once in the bath. There isn’t that much more to this bath bomb so if you expecting something really interesting to happen with this one then well, don’t. What you see is what you get!

The bath water wasn’t all thaaaaaaaaaaat moisturising. It was moisturising, but just not THAT much so.

The bath water left behind from this bath bomb isn’t very… opaque at all. There isn’t much bath art left on the water after the bomb has finished fizzing and the water is left almost transparent. Imagine using a purple filter on normal bath water, that’s what it is like. Literally just purple bath water!

Once my bath bomb had basically finished fizzing, there was this one glob of magenta dye still sort of… dispersing throughout the water. I’m a perfectionist so I absolutely MUST wait until the bath bomb has stopped moving entirely and has completely finished doing its thing, so this one little glob of dye taking like… 5 extra minutes to finish dispersing through the water… was a bit irritating!


Pros:

The smell is absolutely gorgeous. It has a rich, fruity, refreshing blackberry scent, but it also has a slight spiciness to it. It is just absolutely gorgeous. I love it SO much!!! It is also a sweet scent and wow, I just love it.

The colour of the bath bomb and the colour that it leaves the bathwater is absolutely gorgeous. I love the colour purple, so this one is right down my alley as they say. SO PRETTY!!!

The scent from this bath bomb lingered in my hair for a little while which was really, really nice!

The bath water was somewhat moisturising. Not massively so, but it was still nice!

This made a lovely gift and I am so happy I received this from my partner for my Birthday 🙂 This would make a lovely gift for pretty much anyone I should think!

This is obviously a Lush product, it is vegan, cruelty free, handmade etc etc… A fantastic product that is definitely worth a try at LEAST once!

I actually really liked the bath water being sort of see-through. I get kinda creeped out when the water is quite opaque, because it allows my imagination to go nuts and think that there might be a shark in the water… or that the water could be far deeper than I think it is etc… This probably sounds really weird to most of you, but I am really, really scared of sharks and of deep water! If you are too then a bath bomb like this is really nice!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this is such a nice bath bomb, and I just can’t get over its scent!!! I absolutely adore the colour it turns my bath water too… I think I love just about everything about this bath bomb. It COULD be improved, but not much honestly. I’d personally prefer it if this bomb had a liiiiiittle more oomph to it, but it is really lovely!

I’m going to have to rate this bath bomb a solid 5/5*!!! It could be improved, but almost no product can’t be, right? The colour and THE SCENT!!! I just LOVE THIS ONE SO MUCH!

Until next time!
