For such a small bath bomb Cinders has certainly left quite the impression on me. First and foremost it’s packed full of cinnamon, since Lush retired the Phoenix Rising bath bomb I have been struggling to get my bath bomb cinnamon fix.
Last year I stocked up on Cinders and still have 2 left in my big box of Lush. When I found out that Cinders wasn’t going to be making a return in Lush’s 2016 Winter line I wasn’t very pleased at all.
I’m not sure where my cinnamon obsession started, I think most probably the Fireball sweets I used to eat when I was at school. It’s literally the yummiest spice in the world. I love it on cake, in my hot chocolate and even more so in my bath. I deal with chronic pain on an everyday basis and bathing in a Cinders bath is the closest to relaxed I can ever be.
I have no shame in pointing out that the Cinders Bath Bomb isn’t ever going to win any bath art trophies. It does however have popping candy in which makes bath time with it a little more exciting.
Most people look for bath bombs searching for a colourful bath time show. There is however so much more to a bath bomb than its colours.
Once you start to look into the benefits of the ingredients of each Lush product that’s when you start to try products that are out of your comfort zone. I feel that Cinders is way out of a lot of peoples bath-bomb-comfort-zone because it is small and isn’t as visually pleasing as alternatives such as the Frozen bath bomb.
I always recommend trying a Lush product at least once as discovering you love a product you’d never thought you’d like makes it all the more fun.
Yes Cinders is small and yes it’s a bit boring in the bath but it smells so good, to me it is Christmas in bath bomb form.
It leaves my skin soft and hydrated, and leaves a sweet musky spice scent on it that stays with me all day. Unlike any of the other cinnamon based products, Cinders has a sweeter edge to it which is why I favour it.
I know that Cinders leaves your bath water a rather unsatisfying colour, I quote, ‘AH IT LOOKS LIKE WEE!’ but the scent and how it warms my tired and achy muscles makes me forget and not care… Cinders does absolute wonders on my body and I really don’t know what I’m going to do now they are no longer a part of the Winter line!
