The third Atmosphere I went for was the green one, Money. The Atmospheres are supposed to work with the laws of attraction, being that by thinking about something you’re going to attract it. Money is something I definitely could use more of, so I’m fully hoping for it to work and if not then I guess I’ll just sue Lush for false advertising. It’s a win either way right?
Money is scented with the same scent as Over And Over Bath Bomb, a mix of Lime, Cypress, Fennel and Orris. The zestiness of the Lime is at the front of this scent, with deeper, spicy and herbal notes in the background. Lush describe this particular Atmosphere as ‘bringing independence imagined in zingy lime, freedom in bittersweet fennel and adventure in exotic orris’ and they tell you to ‘draw on the laws of attraction to see yourself enjoying absolute control, becoming master, not servant, to the trappings of wealth’, so I guess it’s more about gaining liberation from money than actually gaining more wealth but oh well a girl can try.
Whereas I find Over and Over Bath Bomb to have a pretty strong sense of Lime in its scent, it’s a lot more muted in this format and the more herbal, woody notes come through a lot more which isn’t a complaint as it still smells nice and uplifting. One downside was that unfortunately once I had actually started using the product, the scent had pretty much vanished. This time I actually emptied the contents of the Atmosphere onto a sponge and rubbed it into it, therefore preventing me from losing any which worked a treat!
On the skin, Lime is very cleansing as well as being brightening and toning. Fennel is also toning but it’s slight spiciness means it’s stimulating too, getting the blood flowing to the skin. Along with the help of detoxifying Cypress Oil, Money has left my skin refreshed and bright and just as moisturised as the previous two.
Like I’ve said in my other posts on Love and Let Go, it’s really hard to justify spending £12 for just four showers, so if you’re thinking about trying them it might be better to decant the actual gel into pots so you can use it more sparingly. Hopefully if Lush decide that this is the way forward then they’ll find a way to make them cheaper.
I’d really like to hear about your experiences with the Atmospheres so please let me know in the comments section!
