TWILIGHT BATH BOMB | REVIEW

Hi guys! I’m back with another bath bomb review! This time, it’s a Lush classic: Twilight. The last time I used this bath bomb was a long time ago and I have no idea why I haven’t repurchased until now! It’s such a great bath bomb and it’s a perfect for calming my anxiety before bed.

Twilight is one of Lush’s staple bath bombs, and I can understand why. It really is a beautiful bath bomb, with stars and moons embossed into it’s purple-pink outer layer. Hidden inside is a core of vibrant blue, with small yellow parts as well.

It’s a slow-fizzer, so it takes a while for the blue and yellow to start dissolving, but when they do your bath is transformed into a gorgeous lilac colour. It creates amazing bath art as it dissolves and the silver lustre is a nice touch. Your bath will look like a twilight sky, hence the name.

Twilight is heavily scented with Lavender Oil and Tonka Absolute, giving it a very soothing and relaxing scent. As I said, it really helped to calm down my anxiety before I went to bed. I’d imagine it’d also make a lovely bath in the morning, to help calm the nerves before a big event etc. (I’d certainly be tempted!) It also contains Ylang Ylang Oil, one of my personal favourites, which combines nicely to give Twilight an overall floral and sweet scent.

Overall, I’d definitely recommend Twilight. The scent is to die for and you’ll no doubt be hooked once you’ve bought your first one! It’s only £3.95 too, which is a really good price for a regular-sized bath bomb!

If you love the scent, why not try the new Twilight Body Spray? It’s a perfect way to keep the scent on your skin for longer!

Hope you enjoyed this review, keep checking back for more!

THE ROUGH WITH THE SMOOTH BODY SCRUB | REVIEW

Before I start the review, I’d like to express my deepest condolences to those affected by the events that took place in London last night. People can be so selfish and evil. Remember that the world is not all bad and these horrific events should not stop anyone enjoying life to the fullest. London, you are in everyone’s hearts. ❤

—————————————————————————————————————————————

It’s important to carry on doing what you love after such events, so here’s my review of one of my most recent Lush purchases – The Rough With The Smooth body scrub (TRWTS). I’ve recently thrown all my energy into revitalising my skin routine, to help my skin stay moisturised and fresh throughout the summer months. I went to Lush with the intention of buying a scrub to use in the shower/bath, and I wasn’t at all disappointed. Lush have so many amazing scrubs, but TRWTS stood out for me. The smell was very familiar to me, and I was informed that it shared it’s scent with the Lord of Misrule shower cream, one of my all time favourite products! I was instantly sold. I tested it out on my skin and it was amazing! The scent lingered for the rest of the day and it made my skin feel so smooth and exfoliated.

It’s amazing scent is down to Patchouli oil, Black Pepper oil and Vanilla Absolute, which combine to create that iconic scent. I really miss Lord of Misrule when it’s not Halloween time, so discovering a permanent product which shares it’s scent has changed my life! I look forward to using it in my morning showers as it just gives my skin such an amazing feeling and it’s perfect for exfoliating my legs for wearing shorts! The soft Murumuru butter helps to moisturise your skin as the sugar removes any dead skin cells.

Top tips:

-Leave to fully dry (if using wet) before storing it, as it can stick  (especially if you’re using the square Lush tins)

-Remove from the shower once you are finished, as prolonged water exposure will cause it to disintegrate

-Chop it up into smaller pieces, large enough for a single use – this can help with disintegration!

The Rough With The Smooth body scrub retails for a very respectable £5.95, and you get multiple uses out of it, so I’d definitely say it’s worth buying. If you want the square storage tin, that’ll cost an additional £2.95 (personally, I keep mine in a small Tupperware tub, which works just as well!)

Ask for a demo in store to see if this is the body scrub for you!

Ingredients: Granulated Sugar, Murumuru Butter, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cream of Tartar, Organic Castor Oil, Perfume, Lauryl Betaine, Black Pepper Oil, Patchouli Oil, Vanilla Absolute, Limonene, Linalool, Rosie Red Lustre, Titanium Dioxide, Colour 15850:1

This product is suitable for vegans.

Hope you enjoyed this review, look out for more very soon!

BRIGHTSIDE BUBBLE BAR | REVIEW

Another review for you guys, and this time it’s Brightside bubble bar! I’ve noticed this product before but I’ve never really given it a second look. For a while I’ve been attracted to “wow” factor baths, with pretty bath art and glitter. I’ve stuck mainly to bath bombs I know and love, but this time I thought I’d branch out. It seemed like a good investment, as must people seem to say that it can last for up to 4 baths. As a very economical lushie, this made my heart sing! I’m always very disappointed when a bubble bar can barely manage 2 baths.

Let’s talk about the smell first, which I feel is the highlight of this bubble bar. It’s very uplifting and refreshing, with Tangerine oil (top contender for one of my favourite scented oils), Sicilian Mandarin oil and Bergamot oil. Obviously, it’s super citrusy, so if you’re not really into that, this isn’t a subtle scent at all! I enjoyed it in my evening bath, but I can imagine the refreshing scent to be a good wake up call in the morning (PLEASE come out with a shower gel Lush)!

The appearance of the bubble bar is what you’d expect of a product named “Brightside”. The orange, red and yellow swirls remind me a of sunrise/sunset. It is quite a chunky bubble bar and I had to use a knife to cut it into quarters. It produces tonnes and tonnes of bubbles, so I feel if you were feeling frugal you could stretch it to maybe 5 or 6 baths (depending on how bubbly you like your baths). It turns the water a bright orange colour, with no glitter or lustre (perfect for hotel baths!).

Overall, great bubble bar and I’d definitely recommend it! It’s got great value for money at £4.95 (which is good if you consider it can comfortably do 4 baths – that’s only £1.25 a bath!) and the scent is to die for! (If you like orange Fanta, you’ll LOVE this!)

I’m really, really hoping Lush expands the Brightside family, I’d love a shower gel/jelly and maybe a scrub?

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Cream of Tartar, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Lauryl Betaine, Sicilian Mandarin Oil, Tangerine Oil, Bergamot Oil, Limonene, Linalool, Perfume, Gardenia Extract, Colour 14700, Colour 15510

Hope you enjoyed the review, lots more to come!

Big Blue bath bomb | Review

Hi guys! ❤ Another bath bomb review for you all! This time, it’s Big Blue, one of Lush’s permanent bath bombs. It’s got a very unique feel to it, so I was excited to try it out. I bought this over Christmas, so I’ve had lots of Lush goodies to use, so sorry it’s taken me so long to review one of Lush’s staple bombs!

This bath bomb smells great. It really gives off sea breeze vibes. The lemon and lavender oils blend together perfectly, and the sea salt adds the essence of the sea. It was a really nice uplifting smell, which reminded me of my holiday to Menorca in the summer (how I miss that beautiful island!). It’s such a gorgeous smell, and it’ll leave your entire bath room smelling wonderful for hours after your bath.

The unique aspects of this bath bomb are the sea salt and the seaweed that’s hidden within this bath bomb. The sea salt adds a great smell and transforms your bath into your own little ocean. However, I wasn’t a fan of the seaweed. I thought there was just too much in the bath bomb. It completely covered the water and got everywhere! It was even in my hair! I wished I’d looked at this bath bomb online before buying it in store, because if I’d known about the seaweed I probably wouldn’t have purchased it. I’m not a fan of seaweed at all, and I’ve never liked the feeling of it on my skin. This is personal preference though, so some of you might really enjoy the seaweed! It is extremely soft, but I really didn’t like it.

(I mean, come on, some of those seaweed strands look like slugs)

Other than that, I did enjoy the bath bomb, but the seaweed just wasn’t for me at all. This bath bomb is one of the cheaper ones, with a retail price of £3.50. If you enjoy unique bath bombs, then this one might be your new favourite!

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!

Dragon’s egg bath bomb | Review

Hey guys!

See?! I told you I’d be more active!

So, here’s my thoughts on the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb. I am very ashamed to say that the reason I have never bought this myself (this was a birthday present) was because I thought it looked “boring”. No judgement please, I just really enjoy the aesthetic of colourful products! However, this little gem had a few surprises in store once I dropped it into the tub.

It has a very strong citrus smell, similar to the Sea Monsters fun bar, so if you’re not down with that scent, I’d stay away. It essentially smells like the lush shop itself, so you know how overpowering I’m talking. However, I’m loving citrus scents at the moment, so I was loving this bath bomb!

So you drop it into the tub, and it fizzes very slowly at first, turning your bath water a kind of “milky” colour. However, give it a few minutes and the orange centre is revealed. The swirling pattern of the white and orange is mesmerising to watch! It also contains small little pieces of rice paper (?) which float on top of the water, which is super cute and fun. It also contains yet another surprise – popping candy!

It’s a really cool bath bomb, and I’d definitely try it if you haven’t already. I had my doubts but I think this will become a firm favourite of mine.

This retails for £3.75, which I’d regard as a mid-high range bath bomb. This is part of the permanent lush range, so you can get it whenever you fancy! (Though shipping for Christmas ends today for Lush). Why not give it a go and see? Comment down below your thoughts on this devious little bath bomb!

Blackberry bath bomb | Review

For my 19th birthday, my parents surprised me with the Lush Happy Bathday box, which includes 6 amazing products, including the Blackberry bath bomb.

This bath bomb is a pretty deceptive one. It’s light blue colour completely changes once it’s dropped into the bathtub. It turns the water a bright purple colour and there’s a little surprise at the end, which I won’t spoil for those who want to give this bath bomb a go!

The key ingredient of the bath bomb is Frankincense oil, which gives off a nice “woody” aroma. It’s very relaxing and it stays on your skin (and hair) for hours after your bath. It only mildly tints the bath water, so you don’t have to worry about staining!

I’d definitely recommend this bath bomb for cold winter days. However, this isn’t the bath bomb for you if you’re looking for a show, Blackberry is quite a slow, subtle fizzer!

This bath bomb retails for £3.35, one of the cheaper bath bombs, so don’t be afraid to give it a go!

Hope you’ve enjoyed this quick little review and Merry Christmas (and Happy Holidays!).
