THINK PINK BATH BOMB | REVIEW

Hi guys, here’s a review of a bath bomb I didn’t think I’d ever be buying.

I bought Think Pink after the disappointment of not being able to get The Experimenter in store like I wanted to. I was browsing around the bath bombs, looking for something new to try instead, and it caught my eye. It was by far one of the most eye-catching bath bombs on display, as it’s covered in lustre. I picked it up and smelt it and I was almost a little shocked. I’d never tried the original bath bomb, so I didn’t know much about it’s scent. I was expecting something maybe rose-scented (based on it’s appearance), but instead I got lovely hints of vanilla & tonka, which are some of my favourite scents in lush products! I can’t believe I’d been shying away from this bath bomb because I presumed it would be rose-scented. Never presume people! (especially if Lush is involved).

Anyway, enough of the back story, let’s get on with the review. My first impression of the design of it was obviously a good one, as I was compelled it pick it up. It’s a very deep pink colour, engraved/embossed with a strange swirling pattern (this is kind of why it screamed rose to me). It’s absolutely covered in lustre, top to bottom, so I did find it a little messy to use and also to photograph (re-positioning was a nightmare!) I think it’s all down to personal preference with lustre – some people adore it and others cannot stand it. If you’re one of the people who prefers a subtle shimmer, then this is not the bath bomb for you!

Think Pink is a “fast-fizzer” and creates beautiful bath art on top of the water.

It’s definitely a “what you see is what you get” type of a product. It’s a bright pink bath bomb, so you get a bright pink bath. It’s one of the most pigmented bath bombs I’ve used. Try adding a bubble bar such as The Comforter to add some gorgeous bubbles into the mix. Think Pink also contains Lavender Oil, so it would pair nicely with any of the Twilight scented products (Serendipity soap could be a nice companion).

It’s scent is meant to be uplifting and relaxing (with the Lavender Oil, Tonka and Vanilla Absolute and Neroli Oil), so definitely a good night time bath. I usually have my last bath of the week on a Sunday evening, to help me relax for the week ahead. I would recommend this product if you suffer from anxiety and need something to help you unwind.

My only criticism of this bath bomb is that it is heavily pigmented so be careful about touching towels etc. as I found that it stained. Also, I would wash out your tub straight away after use, as there is a lot of glitter that is left behind.

However, I still love this product and I would definitely purchase it again!

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cornflour, Perfume, Lavender Oil, Tonka Absolute, Vanilla Absolute, Neroli Oil, Cream of Tartar, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, DRF Alcohol, Limonene, Coumarin

I hope you enjoyed this review! As ever I’m so grateful for all of my followers & readers!

ROCKET SCIENCE BATH BOMB | REVIEW

This was definitely one of the new products I was excited to try the most! The promo pictures looked amazing and I was very intrigued by the beautiful rainbow stars! And it did not disappoint! I have fallen head over heels for this bath bomb and I’m excited to share my thoughts with you all!

Rocket Science has a very citrusy, fresh scent, with gorgeous Bergamot Oil and Sicilian Lemon Oil. I’d say this is the perfect scent to wake yourself up on a morning or just to make you feel fresh and energised! However, the scent does fade away quite quickly once the bath bomb has dissolved, which is really my only criticism.

This is such an adorable little bath bomb and it’s design is so intricate and well thought out. The main part of the bomb is a blue rocket, which glistens with a silver lustre. The “tail” of the rocket is a vibrant yellow, with lovely rainbow stars dotted throughout. This would be a lovely bath bomb for children, as the design is very playful and the scent isn’t too overpowering or harsh.

This bath bomb turns your bath water a deep blue colour, which is one of my favourite colours of bath. However, it doesn’t produce a great deal of bath art, despite it’s design, so if that’s something you usually look for, I wouldn’t recommend this product.

Overall, I really enjoyed this product. The scent of it is gorgeous and I just love the idea of the rainbow stars! It really adds something to your bath experience! This would also be a fab gift idea (one I’d definitely enjoy receiving!).

I really hope you enjoyed my review of Rocket Science! I recently received a very exciting Kitchen order and I can’t wait to share my opinion of those products with you!

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Sicilian Lemon Oil, Bergamot Oil, Cream of Tartar, Water (Aqua), Titanium Dioxide, Corn Starch, Glycerine, Dipropylene Glycol, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Propylene Glycol, Lauryl Betaine, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Sodium carboxy methyl cellulose, Perfume, Limonene, Tin Oxide

THE BIG SLEEP JELLY BATH BOMB | REVIEW

Here is the first of my promised reviews of some of the newest editions to Lush’s extensive line of products. When the jelly bombs were released I was immediately drawn to The Big Sleep (TBS) as it was said to have a very soothing scent to it, perfect for a bath before bed. It also looked gorgeous with it’s rich blues and moon design.

The scent of TBS is exactly what I was hoping for. It’s very soothing and calming, with Lavender Oil and Chamomile Powder, but it also contains Tonka Absolute, which gives it a really nice vanilla undertone. It’s a perfect scent for those night-time baths after a long, stressful day. The scent is quite strong when you smell the bomb itself, but becomes more muted once it’s in the bath (it does stay on your skin though, which is something I always enjoy from a bath bomb!)

As I mentioned before, this bath bomb looks amazing. The main body of the bomb is a light blue colour and the embellishments (the moon design and “spots”) are a much deeper, richer blue. It produces amazing bath art in the tub, very similar to the type of bath art Frozen often produces. It’s a slow fizzer as well, so it carries on fizzing throughout your bath, which I really love. I always find it makes your bath feel a little more special.

BIG SLEEP - FINAL 1

Once it has been fizzing for a few minutes, the green jelly starts to become visible. A soft layer of foam on top of the water, which I used to moisturise my skin.

BIG SLEEP -  JELLY FINAL 3.jpg    BIG SLEEP - IN HAND FINAL 2.jpg

The jelly is meant to fully dissolve in your bath once it’s released, but I didn’t find that this happened at all. This would be my only negative point about this bath bomb. I really wish the jelly dissolved better, so you wouldn’t be left with chunks of jelly floating in your bath. It’s not a huge deal, but this stuff is extremely sticky and it’s a little difficult to remove from the sides of the bath tub.

BIG SLEEP - JELLY HAND FINAL 4.jpg

As you can see on my hand, the layer of foamy jelly is quite thin, however there is more obvious chunks of jelly in the bath as well.

I’d say this bath bomb is definitely quite a novelty product, so it’s kind of up to you whether or not you want to spend the £4.95. I did enjoy my experience overall and I definitely would purchase it again, mainly for the scent if I’m being honest! The jelly didn’t really add anything to the bath, as it was mainly the foam that was moisturising.

If you’re not sure about these jelly bombs then I’d suggest asking for a demo in store, hopefully it’ll help you decide if they are something you’d enjoy. Remember, jelly bombs are a new thing and staff aren’t going to be alarmed if you need demos of all of the new bombs!

Hope you enjoyed this review, stay tuned for more reviews of some of the other new products! ❤ Happy Lushing!

YELLOW SUBMARINE BATH BOMB | REVIEW

I am SO excited to be writing this review! The Beatles are by far my favourite band of all time and I was so happy when Lush decided to bring out a Beatles-themed bath bomb! I first caught a glimpse of this bath bomb on Lush’s instagram. It was released at the 2017 Lush Summit in London. I live about 6 hours from London and I definitely couldn’t afford the train fare so I wasn’t able to make it down. This was the product from the Summit that I loved the most and I was so so SO happy when Lush decided to make it an official main line item!

Yellow Submarine is utterly breathtaking, from it’s design to it’s scent. It’s obviously named after the well-known Beatles song (and album) “Yellow Submarine”, which is a personal favourite of mine! It’s scent very much captures a tropical scene, with beautiful Brazilian Orange Oil, which gives your skin a boost of refreshment. It doesn’t specifically say this in the ingredients, but I did hint a slight scent of Coconut as well, which definitely added to the tropical vibes. It also contains Lemongrass oil, which is a fab natural antiseptic.

It’s made of up of two main colours: vibrant yellow and pink, which turn your bath water a gorgeous peach colour, with glints of the “Fandango” lustre (don’t worry, the lustre is quite minimal for people who prefer less glittery baths).

IN THE BATH FINAL 1.jpg

It’s a slow fizzer, so you can enjoy it’s beautiful swirls of pink and yellow in the water for the duration of your bath. I personally prefer faster fizzing bombs, but I can understand why people enjoy long-lasting bombs.

Yellow Submarine is a super moisturising bath bomb and it left my skin feeling silky smooth. The lustre is quite subtle, so I didn’t really have any that stayed on my skin (no problems with bath staining either).

Overall, this is a fabulous bath bomb and I’m definitely going to be stocking up! And for only £3.95, this bath bomb has such great value for money!

Hope you enjoyed this review and watch out for brand new reviews on some of the latest Lush releases!

Top 5 products for beginners

Hi guys, I thought this would be a really fun post to write and I thought it would be helpful to any beginner lushies who are maybe a little overwhelmed at the vast selection of products! Here are my top 5 products for beginners, that get you the most for your money and allow you to truly feel the full Lush experience!

#1 Intergalactic bath bomb

This is one of Lush’s most iconic bath bombs and it’s definitely one that people think of when they think of Lush. It smells gorgeous and emulates that “Lush shop” scent. It’s packed full of lustre, creates incredible bath art and it leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. This is 100% something that I keep coming back to again and again. If you’re looking for a full-on Lush bath, then this is the bath bomb for you!

#2 The Comforter bubble bar

Bubble bars are great for when you don’t want to break the bank. The Comforter is under £5 and, depending on how bubbly you like your bath, you can get up to eight uses out of this (maybe more, who knows?). The Comforter is really soothing, with Bergamot Oil and a blackcurrant scent, so it’s ideal for a relaxing night time soak. It bubbles up super well, so a little goes a long way, Just crumble a bit of this under running water and watch the water bubble and turn a deep pink!

#3 Rainbow Fun

This is such a fun product that has so many uses! Use under running water for loads of bubbles, use as a soap/wash on your body or sculpt it into something amazing! With 7 colours comes 7 different coloured baths (or use all at once if you prefer!). This is definitely a bank account saver as well, as this stuff lasts for ages and ages! It smells absolutely divine and it leaves your skin feeling refreshed. This is a must-have for lushies!

#4 A big ass bottle of shower gel of your choice (my personal favourite is Happy Hippy!)

Let’s all be real here. You’ll definitely fall in love with whichever shower gel you decide to buy, so why not just skip the 100g and go straight for the bigger sizes? This is a mistake I’ve made before. Lush shower gel does last a while, but if you’re in love with a scent and you don’t ever want to be left without it, always go for a bigger bottle (500g or 1kg if you can stretch to it!) Believe me, it’s worth the investment.

#5 A shampoo bar of your choice (I really love Karma Komba)

A Lush solid shampoo bar is a must for all new lushies. If you’re thinking that Lush is too expensive then you’re wrong! Most shampoo bars at Lush range from approx. £5 to £7, BUT they last for about 3-4 months (depending on how frequently you wash your hair). I fell in love with Karma Komba but I recently branched out and tried Smuggler’s Soul from the Father’s day collection and I was blown away by how shiny it left my hair! Naked shampoo is also amazing for the environment! (For these shampoo bars I’d recommend a shampoo tin or a small tupperware tub).

And that’s it!

I hope you guys enjoyed my post and hopefully I’ve inspired some new lushies to go out and give these products a go!

SEX BOMB BATH BOMB | REVIEW

Hey everyone! I’m back for another review of a classic Lush product: Sex bomb bath bomb! This is a cute little bath bomb that I’ve never tried before, so I was excited to give it a go! It looks adorable and smells wonderful. I’d never really been drawn to it before, but after discovering it shares some of it’s scent with the Lust Perfume (one of my favs!) I was intrigued and decided to go for it!

The bath bomb itself is pink and purple, with some pastel pink rose “petals” nestled within it. These petals are actually made of rice paper. It turns your bath water a gorgeous pink colour. The rose petals slowly drift across the water, which is a nice touch.

This would be a perfect bath bomb if you were looking to enjoy a bath with your partner (this would be amazing for Valentine’s Day!). Sex Bomb’s main ingredient is Jasmine Absolute, which is known to be quite sensual, as well as adding a floral element to it’s overall scent.

DSC_0851FINAL.jpg

It also contains Clary Sage oil, which is very soothing and relaxing, and Ylang-Ylang oil, which adds a sweet note to the scent. These scents all combine to create an amazing scent! I can’t believe I’ve never tried this one before! I’m definitely going to be repurchasing!

This bath bomb is only £3.75, so it’s one of the cheaper bath products. This would make a great present either for yourself or for that special person in your life! Ask for a demo in store to try before you buy!

I really hoped you enjoyed this review and liked my featured image! I thought I’d change it up a bit! Lots of new exciting posts coming soon, so follow to keep up to date!

Intergalactic bath bomb | Review

Hey guys, back with another bath bomb review and it’s another classic – Intergalactic! This truly is one of Lush’s most iconic bath bombs and it was one my own first. If you’re looking for that bright blue, glittery Lush bath, then this is the one for you!

Intergalactic has always been a firm favourite and I’ve been repurchasing it for years. There was a period of time when it was banned in my house, because I forgot to wash the bath out and the glitter stained the tub, but those dark days are behind me now.

It’s a very refreshing bath bomb, with Peppermint Oil taking centre stage. This, mixed with Grapefruit oil, gives your bath a gorgeous minty yet citrus scent. I’ve found it to be a good mood-booster for when you’re having a meh type of day. It’s certainly my go-to for when my depression is just too much to handle!

This is a very colourful bath bomb, featuring neon blue, yellow and pink. These colours combined great a deep blue galaxy in your bath. Popping candy adds an element of surprise and really makes the whole experience more enjoyable.

DSC_0811FINAL.jpg

Intergalactic is absolutely packed with lustre (three types to be exact), which isn’t for everyone. If you decide to give this one a go, please rinse your bath straight after it drains! It will stain your bath tub!

It retails for £4.25 (a little heartbroken, swear it used to be below £4), but it’s well worth it. Personally, I’d stockpile them so you’ll have one ready for when you have one of those days.

If you’re still unsure, pop into your local Lush store and ask for a demo! You won’t be disappointed!

Hope you enjoyed the review, more coming soon!

Sacred Lotus bath bomb | Review

Hi guys, here’s another review for you guys and this is a really exciting one! As soon as this became live on the website, I immediately put it into my basket. It is one of the most unique looking bath bombs I’ve ever seen. It caught my eye straight away and it definitely didn’t disappoint!

This bath bomb is made up of Jasmine Absolute, Neroli Oil and Tonka Absolute, giving it a gorgeous, floral scent. It’s a very refreshing scent though, not too sickly sweet. However, in the water is where this bath bomb really shines! It’s gorgeous purple and yellow swirl together to create beautiful patterns on top of the water. The purple “petals” break off and fizz on their own, which really makes the experience last that little bit longer, as the main body of the bath bomb is quite a fast fizzer.

DSC_0766FINAL.jpg

It turns your bath water a lovely muted purple colour, with plenty of perfectly named “Snowflake lustre”. There was actually a lot more lustre than I had anticipated, so make sure you rinse your bath straight after! The bath water isn’t that pigmented, but it really does make up for that in lustre.

Overall, this bath bomb has a very holistic feel to it, especially with the Lotus’s ties to serenity and peace. If you’re in need of a mood-boosting bath, then I’d recommend giving this one a go.

RRP: £4.25

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Snowflake Lustre, Neroli Oil, Jasmine Absolute, Tonka Absolute, Cream of Tartar, Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Perfume, Amyl, Cinnamal, Coumarin, Limonene, Linalool, Colour 45410, Colour 47005, Colour 42090, Colour 45350
