Satsuma Bath Bomb from Lush

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.

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.group test photo.png

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!

Dashing Santa Bath Bomb from Lush

dashing-santa-bath-bomb

I have actually used this bath bomb several times now. This of course indicates that I like it at the least, a little bit. I have wanted to share my opinions and product photos of the Dashing Santa Bath Bomb ever since I first used it back in October, I however thought it would be wise to leave it until it was a little more closer to Christmas as I know the C word scares most people if mentioned before December…

Seeing as my boyfriend has already put our Christmas tree up, I decided that today was the day to share my review. Hopefully writing this post gets me into the Christmas spirit. What I lack in Christmas enthusiasm my Crimbo-crank-boyfriend well makes up for.

As much as I hate Christmas as soon as I see the list of ingredients that the Dashing Santa bath bomb contained I had to try it as soon as possible. The three stand-out ingredients that got me excited were; Mandarin, bergamot and orange. I’m a sucker for anything citrus scented so as soon as this bath bomb was available I ordered it.

I’m always honest in my reviews and when I first had the Dashing Santa bath bomb in front of me I admit that I was a little disappointed at its subtle scent, it was definitely citrusy but it was nowhere near as strong a citrus scent as the Golden Wonder or Lava Lamp Bath Bomb bath bombs are. Sometimes I however like to use the bath bombs that are gentle scent wise.

The Dashing Santa bath bomb is a very slow but colourful fizzer. I am so glad that I gave this bath bomb a go as once it was in the water, the scent of it intensified ever so slightly which really pleased my nose. Slowly but surely Dashing Santa fizzles away leaving the bath water a warm orange colour.

The name Dashing Santa was inspired by the way this bath bomb moves in the water, starting with his golden boots he slowly charges (or should I say dashes) around the bath like a little power boat.

The scent of this bath bomb lingered on my skin the morning after too which I wasn’t expecting at all what with it being so subtle. There is just something so cheery and refreshing about citrus based Lush products, I can never get enough of them.

Dashing Santa will most certainly be another of the bath bombs that I will be stocking up on before Winter 2015 is through.

I have my fingers crossed for Lush bringing Dashing Santa back for Lush Christmas 2016 as its scent is one I have grown very fond of. Lush definitely need to make more products with Dashing Santa’s scent as I feel it would be great in other formats, a body lotion, soap or shampoo bar would go down a treat in my house!
