As a self-confessed lover of all things pink, the Cheery Christmas Bath Bomb was always going to be the first bath bomb from the Christmas 2018 range that I gravitated towards. This hexagon shaped bath bomb has a perfectly etched, white snowflake design on its top making it very easy on the eye.
I actually had a chance to make one these at the 2018 Lush Showcase; The compounders make it look so easy, I am not ashamed to say it was actually really hard work. The bath bomb pictured above was mine, I was very pleased with myself. Let’s all pretend that this took me 10 seconds (like the compounders) and not 10 minutes… Doh!
Although pink isn’t the first colour that comes to mind when you think of Christmas or snowflakes, this bath bomb really does fit in with the other seasonal products perfectly. The best part about the Cheery Christmas bath bomb however hasn’t been mentioned yet… I assumed because of its pink colour that it would be a Snow Fairy shower gel scented product. I don’t dislike the Snow Fairy scent, it is just so over used over the Christmas period.
We already have the Snow Fairy jelly bomb so I kept my fingers crossed that it wouldn’t be Snow Fairy scented and I’m pleased to announce that it’s far from Snow Fairy scented! Containing buchu and Sicilian lemon oil the Cheery Christmas bath bomb has quite the unique scent.
Off of the top of my head I think the last product to come out that contained buchu oil was the Scrub Scrub Scrub shower scrub. It is a very strangely fragranced ingredient but not at all unpleasant, it has a strong blackcurrant fragrance with hints of mint, mixed with the Sicilian lemon oil I find the Cheery Christmas bath bombs scent both uplifting and relaxing.
Just like the scent of the Naughty Elf bubble bar, Cheery Christmas’ scent isn’t something I’d immediately associate with Christmas BUT it really does fit within this years range. As soon as Cheery Christmas hits the water it creates a mini explosion of foam, pink flecks whizz out of the bath bomb and then you notice lots of blue foam too. I wasn’t expecting any blue at all! – This was a fantastic surprise. My photos do the bath art this bath bomb creates no justice at all.
The blue and pink bath art is reminiscent of the Twilight bath bomb but the colours definitely have more clout. Cheery Christmas turns your bath water into a dark pink shimmering pool of beauty, I couldn’t help but run my fingers through the mesmerisingly soft waters, letting the water cover every inch of my skin leaving my skin silky smooth and ready to take on the rest of the day.
Overall I am really impressed with this bath bomb, it’s unique scent and design makes it stand out from all the rest, I have wrapped a few up to put in my bath bomb storage before they retire with the rest of the Christmas line. I think next year they could bring out a blue version of it with a pink middle too, maybe make it the same scent as the Frozen bath bomb? hint, hint Lush! 😉
