I have actually used this bath bomb several times now. This of course indicates that I like it at the least, a little bit. I have wanted to share my opinions and product photos of the Dashing Santa Bath Bomb ever since I first used it back in October, I however thought it would be wise to leave it until it was a little more closer to Christmas as I know the C word scares most people if mentioned before December…
Seeing as my boyfriend has already put our Christmas tree up, I decided that today was the day to share my review. Hopefully writing this post gets me into the Christmas spirit. What I lack in Christmas enthusiasm my Crimbo-crank-boyfriend well makes up for.
As much as I hate Christmas as soon as I see the list of ingredients that the Dashing Santa bath bomb contained I had to try it as soon as possible. The three stand-out ingredients that got me excited were; Mandarin, bergamot and orange. I’m a sucker for anything citrus scented so as soon as this bath bomb was available I ordered it.
I’m always honest in my reviews and when I first had the Dashing Santa bath bomb in front of me I admit that I was a little disappointed at its subtle scent, it was definitely citrusy but it was nowhere near as strong a citrus scent as the Golden Wonder or Lava Lamp Bath Bomb bath bombs are. Sometimes I however like to use the bath bombs that are gentle scent wise.
The Dashing Santa bath bomb is a very slow but colourful fizzer. I am so glad that I gave this bath bomb a go as once it was in the water, the scent of it intensified ever so slightly which really pleased my nose. Slowly but surely Dashing Santa fizzles away leaving the bath water a warm orange colour.
The name Dashing Santa was inspired by the way this bath bomb moves in the water, starting with his golden boots he slowly charges (or should I say dashes) around the bath like a little power boat.
The scent of this bath bomb lingered on my skin the morning after too which I wasn’t expecting at all what with it being so subtle. There is just something so cheery and refreshing about citrus based Lush products, I can never get enough of them.
Dashing Santa will most certainly be another of the bath bombs that I will be stocking up on before Winter 2015 is through.
I have my fingers crossed for Lush bringing Dashing Santa back for Lush Christmas 2016 as its scent is one I have grown very fond of. Lush definitely need to make more products with Dashing Santa’s scent as I feel it would be great in other formats, a body lotion, soap or shampoo bar would go down a treat in my house!
