For Valentine’s 2018 Lush have revamped an old favourite, the Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb. Instead of being all white, it is now half white and half hot-pink. Visually, it is a huge improvement (in my opinion anyway…) if in doubt, just add some pink and voila!
The standard white version of the Tisty Tosty bath bomb was put into retirement last year to make way for new bath bombs. I was a little sad at its loss as I love the story behind it. Tisty Tosty’s ingredients are inspired by a medieval love potion, everything about the Tisty Tosty bath bomb oozes love and romance, it’s a Valentine’s product through and through.
This version of the Tisty Tosty bath bomb doesn’t however have the paper insert that the other versions of it had, this takes away a lot of its charm and history. The paper insert with the previous versions of the Tisty Tosty had a verse on it, it explained how to cast the love spell with the Tisty Tosty being the magic potion.
Seeing as this version didn’t have the magic words, I decided to do a ‘Little Mermaid’ by picking out each rose bud saying, ‘he loves me, he loves me not…’ which I realise now was a bit pointless as each Tisty Tosty has 7 rose buds in. Spoiler alert, if you want it to end on he/she loves me then make sure you start with ‘he/she loves me’. It’s foolproof!
Tisty Tosty’s scent is all things rose. Sicilian lemon, geranium and jasmine oil are also in the mix adding a layer of musk to its already light and rosy fragrance. I like to pair Tisty Tosty with the Rose Jam shower gel to help carry the rose fragrance that little bit further. Upon hitting the bath water Tisty Tosty begins to hiss, bubbling away while rippling its fragrance through your bathroom. Tisty Tosty is an incredibly fast fizzer. It won’t win any prizes for bath art but the quicker the bath bomb dissolves, the quicker you can lie back into its relaxing waters.
I always end up using a product to help with dry skin alongside Tisty Tosty as it is quite a drying bath bomb. There are so many moisturising products you can pair it with. My favourites from this years Valentine’s line are the Tender is the Night naked shower cream and the Cherryish body scrub. Appearance wise I think 2018’s Tisty Tosty is a sight for sore eyes, it’s a great improvement. I however feel the lack of the paper note takes away a huge part of the Tisty Tosty’s character making it just another bath bomb.
