If you follow my Instagram account, you wouldn’t have been able to ignore my constant stream of posts from the Lush Creative Showcase at London’s Tobacco Dock.
The Showcase was earlier this week and I had the most fantastic time – Thank you so much for adding me to the guest list Lush Cosmetics, it meant myself and a plus one (Joey) got early access, I was planning on going on both the Tuesday and Wednesday but the heat took over and I decided that being there all day on Tuesday was enough. I regret this decision so much now but I guess I was super exhausted and I needed enough energy to do the long journey home Wednesday evening.
The Mistletoe bath bomb was the last of the bath bombs that I picked up that day. I couldn’t quite believe my eyes at how many new things they had on offer. Once the crazy crowds had dropped down we popped back into the Halloween and Christmas bit to see if I had missed anything. That’s when I spotted Mistletoe.
The first thing I did was give it a good sniff, I got a little over excited as I recognised the scent straight away, (my nose is normally very slow) it shared its scent with the Silky Underwear Dusting Powder. Silky Underwear is probably my favourite non seasonal dusting powder and I couldn’t wait to combine the two.
When I finally made it back home I was a little worse for wear, travelling in the wheelchair is so much easier for me but is still very tiring. I had to wait a few days before I could try any of my new Lush buys which was TORTURE.
Once I felt a little better Mistletoe was the first product I took from my stash and into the bathroom, never to return…
As soon as the Mistletoe bath bomb hits the water a stream of light green and bright pink foam disperses out of the bath bomb. It then begins to slowly spin around in the water and after a little while a darker purple/deep blue colour also fizzes out of it, creating the prettiest patterns of foamy colour that sits on top of your bath water for a short time.
The Mistletoe bath bomb reminds me of the Rose Bombshell bath bomb a little bit, the Rose Bombshell was released earlier on this year in the Mother’s Day range. Mistletoe is however more colourful and hasn’t got any petals inside which some people may prefer.
Mistletoe has a velvety soft, uplifting-sweet scent. Some have described it as smoky I however think it’s more musky than smoky.
Sometimes Lush release a product that upon first use makes me wonder how I ever got by without it. Mistletoe is most certainly one of those bath bombs.
I have fallen head over heels in love with it. I have been well and truly seduced by its fairytale scent, that and the beautiful colours it makes in your bath water.
Last year I only stocked up on a few of the bath bombs, Mistletoe has unquestionably made it on to the short list of those I will be stocking up on at the end of the winter season!
