I’m a sucker for anything citrus, I’d actually admit here and now that winter used to make me ridiculously miserable, that is until I discovered Lush Cosmetics.
Now every winter I don’t want to just hibernate until the spring time. Instead I focus on all of the exciting new Lush products that are available, the thought of copious amounts of luxurious baths makes the winter months so much more bearable…
As someone who is plagued with high levels of joint pain and fatigue a zesty and rejuvenating bath is always right up my street. This is why I was so, so excited when I first see the big pile of Satsuma Bath Bomb’s at the Lush Creative Showcase 2016.
The Satsuma bath bomb is my idea of heaven.
Containing a fine cocktail of citrus-fruit essential oils; Bergamot, Sicilian mandarin, fresh satsuma juice and orange flower absolute, Satsuma really is a zesty and refreshing treat I’d like to get time and time again.
Satsuma shares its scent with last year’s Dashing Santa bath bomb. As sad as I was to find out that Dashing Santa wouldn’t be returning this year, Lush have well made up for it with the addition of 2 new products sharing its same beautiful scent; The Satsuma bath bomb and the new soap, Santa’s Postbox.
The Satsuma bath bomb is only available as part of a Lush 2016 Christmas gift set or on its own at Lush’s flagship store, Lush Oxford Street. I am actually visiting the store next week and will be picking up a fair few of these as I think they are fabulous.
Much like the Blackberry bath bomb the Satsuma bath bomb isn’t as visually pleasing once in the bath (no pretty bath art) its scent however wins me over.
Its carefully selected ingredients help to soothe and refresh my mind, body and soul.
It’s quite a quick fizzer, I however don’t see this as a negative characteristic, it’s not a ‘bath art’ bomb so I expect it to be a quick, the quicker it fizzes away the quicker I can lay back in it and get my relax on.
My skin once out of the bath feels moisturised, smooth and refreshed, the scent however doesn’t stay on your skin for very long which is a little disappointing.
I have used the Santa’s Post Box soap alongside it and that helps carry the scent for longer although again not for very long.
As much as I love the Satsuma bath bomb I will say that I enjoy it better when paired with other products. My favourite combination so far is 1 half of a Satsuma bath bomb in with 1 half of a Blackberry bath bomb. Just writing about it makes me feel relaxed!
