2016 has been one of Lush’s best years for products yet. I don’t know how they always manage to do better and better every year, they just do and that’s why I love Lush so much!
Earlier this year, the Mother’s day line introduced us to a completely new type of bath bomb, The Roller.
The Roller was unique to anything Lush had sold before because of its design. The bath bomb is made just like any other bath bomb but the top half of it is dipped into a mixture of hot oil and butters, they are then left to set. Once set you are left with a bath bomb with 50% of it covered in a thin coating of rich and super softening bath melt.
The release of the Roller bath bomb caused mass hysteria in the Lush world, I know sometimes I can exaggerate but Roller honestly caused absolute pandemonium. Everyone wanted to try it and every time they became available they would become sold out within minutes.
The Lush community has (at the point of me writing this review) been spoilt with 2 more bath bombs designed in the same way as Roller. The Over and Over bath bomb and the Never Mind the Ballistics bath bomb.
I was first introduced to the Never Mind The Ballistics Bath Bomb at the Lush creative showcase back in September this year. It is currently part of the Lush 2016 Winter range and it has made quite the impression on me.
I do not recognise Never Mind The Ballistics’ scent from any other Lush product and it took me using it a few times to really appreciate it.
Never Mind The Ballistics is a wonderfully fruity scented bath bomb, this is however not very obvious at all. It contains both lime and sweet orange oil and also fresh banana. The banana seems to mask the zestyness that can normally be detected in products that contain lime or orange oil, it still has a very fruity scent but its so unique to any product I have tried from Lush before.
Just like the Roller and Over and Over bath bomb, Never Mind The Ballistics’ is a real treat for the skin.
I am very wary of products with extra melt in as I am not very steady on my feet due to 2 medical conditions, I therefore avoid anything that could make my bath tub excessively slippery.
As with Roller and Over and Over, Never Mind The Ballistics isn’t at all excessively oily, all 3 are in my opinion, in fact the perfect combination of bath bomb and bath melt. I was so scared of using them at first but am so glad that I did.
My photographs do the Never Mind The Ballistics bath bomb no justice at all. The colours and patterns it creates while swirling around your bathtub are almost hypnotic.
You just can’t take your eyes off of it and I always find myself trying not to wriggle or move in case I disturb its work of art!
I am so, so impressed with Never Mind The Ballistics. My only negative is that colour wise it is very similar to the Over and Over bath bomb.
I really like the idea of it having fresh banana in, if you struggle to have your 5 a day this bath bomb won’t help BUT I guess bathing in it is better than nothing at all… 😉
Although this bath bomb doesn’t appear at all Christmassy, I do think it’s a fantastic addition to the 2016 Winter line and I really recommend trying it at least once.
