ULURU BATH BOMB | REVIEW

This is a super exciting review for me because this was the first ever product I’ve ordered from the Lush Kitchen!

*for those of you that don’t know, the Lush Kitchen sells fresh exclusives that are made in small batches, they release the menu items for the week on a Friday*

As soon as I saw this bath bomb advertised on the Lush Kitchen Instagram page (go follow them for updates on new products!) I was obsessed. Everything about this bath bomb appealed to me, from the colour to the scent. I’m a big fan of citrus scents, especially in the summer time, so the Brazilian Orange Oil and Lemon Myrtle Oil in Uluru appealed to me. It also contains Sandalwood Oil, which is one of my favourite essential oils. It’s a very fresh scent, so it’s perfect for the spring/summer.

The bath bomb itself is a vibrant orange colour, with a pink trim and small red & yellow flecks within it. It turns your bath water a lovely pastel orange/peach. It’s not a particularly flashy bath bomb, but it’s super soothing and moisturising and the scent stays on your skin for hours afterwards.

Uluru definitely lived up to my expectations and if it ever returns to the kitchen then I’ll be sure to grab a few more.

Overall, my experience with the Lush kitchen was great. The delivery of my items took about a week, which is a little longer than normal, but this wouldn’t put me off ordering from the kitchen again. If you want the freshest products you can get, then the Lush Kitchen is the way to go (plus, the packaging is super cute!)

I hope you enjoyed this review – follow my blog for more Lush reviews!

Shooting Stars bath bomb | Review

Oh. My. God.

This bath bomb is honestly the best goddamn bath bomb I’ve ever seen. It looked stunning when I unwrapped it on Christmas day, but nothing can compare to the beautiful display once it’s placed in the water.

The bath bomb itself is absolutely stunning, with a vibrant sparkly blue base and gold glittery stars to decorate. It’s not too crumbly and has managed to stay in one piece in my lush storage tin.

It smells divine as well. Personally, it reminds me of The Experimenter, which is essentially a mix-up of many different scents.

Let’s talk about when this tremendous bath bomb hits the water. From the get go it’s very (very) pigmented and immediately the water starts to turn a bright blue. It shoots glitter out in all directions (from the golden stars). The little stars also act as mini bath bombs and they keep fizzing even when the main bath bomb is finished. Now, there is a ridiculous amount of glitter in this bath bomb, which I personally love, but it is definitely one of Lush’s “glitter” bombs. The glitter will 100% stay on your skin (I’ve just used it and I’m currently covered). It will need to be washed out of the bath immediately as well, as I have no doubt this will stain your tub (the final water colour is a very deep, indulgent turquoise). If this is a problem, wouldn’t give this one a go.

Sadly, this was from the Christmas 2016 range, so we’ll have to wait and see if they bring it back for 2017 (why wouldn’t they? Everyone is raving about this bomb!). Since it’s been taken off the website, I don’t actually know what the price was. I would guess it would most likely have been £4.25 or maybe £4.95 (I received it as a present and I am not going to demand how much it was!)

So, overall, the best bath bomb that has ever graced my bath tub. Nothing more to add. This is flipping amazing. If you can get your hands on this (eBay etc.) then I suggest doing so quickly before they are all completely gone! (I’m not a huge fan of buying Lush from anywhere but the Lush website, but on this special occasion, I’ll permit it).

Golden Wonder bath bomb | Review

Hey guys! Another Christmas lush review for you! This time, it’s Golden Wonder! I wanted this so badly last year but it was always sold out, so this year I put it on my Christmas lush wish and I was very lucky to get one from my parents! I have fallen in love with the gorgeous bath bomb, definitely a Christmas must-have!

I’m going to be trying a new format to my reviews, so leave some comments down below about the new layout! (I might not keep it, just going to see how it fares!)

“Pros”

-gorgeous colour

-surprising ending

-glitter is super pretty and makes it feel extra special

-lovely citrus scent

-very soothing

“Cons” 

-lots and lots of glitter! (make sure you wash out your bath at the end!)

-it’s sadly limited edition for Christmas 😦

-it’s on the more expensive side, with a retail price of £4.95

-glitter will stay on your body for days (personally, this is a pro for me!)

Overall, a fun Christmas bath bomb, perfect to enjoy on a cold winter night or morning. Gorgeous colour and smells divine!

Again, not sure if this format is quite right, just testing it out! Sometimes I think I ramble a little too much, so this might cut it down a bit and focus on the really key areas of a product.

Thanks so much to all my readers!
