Snowman Dreaming Bath Bomb from Lush

Snowman Dreaming Bath Bomb
I’ll start this review off with a quick apology for not having this review out sooner, I’d written it and had completely forgotten to publish it.¬†Hence the talk of Christmas during a pre-summer English heatwave! Sorry! ūüėč

The Snowman Dreaming Bath Bomb was one of my favourites from all of the brand new bath bombs released last year (2019). Considering how many new bath bombs were actually released last year (because of the 30 years of the bath bomb celebration) – This is a very bold statement indeed!

Borrowing its shape from the Snowman shower jelly, many long-term-Lush-fans were hit with a wave of Christmas nostalgia upon first sight of this bath bomb. Containing a delicate blend of cedarwood and lavender oils, Snowman Dreaming has a calm and gentle fragrance. It’s the perfect product to use just before bed, especially if you’re looking for a little help with dropping off.

Snowman Dreaming’s scent has been a popular topic amongst the Lush Community. When all of the Winter products were first delivered to me I had them all out ready to take photos. My nose kept telling my brain that one of the products smelt like the aforementioned Snowman shower jelly. Turns out my nose was actually picking up the Snowman Dreaming bath bomb.

It’s not the same scent by any means BUT I definitely get a hint of the shower jellies scent buried underneath all of that cedarwood. Its ingredients list does not back up my beliefs but my nose just won’t give up the ghost.

I thought I was going mad until I see on Instagram that several other people have said the same. There were also people who disagreed wholeheartedly too BUT there must be something about it for some of us to think the same unprompted?!

The Snowman Dreaming bath bomb is relatively small, I’d say that it is a very similar size to the retired Christmas-time, Butterbear bath bomb. Once placed in the bath water the Snowman Dreaming bath bomb explodes with colour. Pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues shoot out of its left side leaving behind a rainbow-stream of bath bomb foam.

Even though it is a small bath bomb it’s a very slow fizzer giving you more than enough time to appreciate the bath art it creates. The colours that come out of it are like none I have seen from a bath Bomb before, suddenly I don’t miss the,¬†The Experimenter bath bomb¬†as much anymore!

After I used the Snowman Dreaming bath bomb for the very first time, I put an order in for 2 more before my bath had even had time to drain. I then went on to pick up 2 more when I visited Lush’s Liverpool store in December.

They are visually irresistible, there is just something about the fresh, crisp-white-colour of it against the clash of all the colours of the rainbow at its side. It almost radiates happiness and really helped lift my spirits during the dull and dreary Winter.

Snowman Dreaming’s scent is subtle before, during and after use. I couldn’t smell it on my skin once I was out of the bath which is strange for Lush bath bombs. My skin was however left feeling smooth and looked noticeably brighter. I have my fingers crossed that this bath bomb comes back again as a part of the 2020 Winter collection, simple yet amazing! ūü§ě

Golden Wonder Bath Bomb from Lush

When I very first tried the Golden Wonder bath bomb it made me want winter to last forever, a very bold statement for someone who has always disliked winter and is forever saying that they are cold!

Although I would still describe myself as a through and through summer girl, I am now content when winter arrives, knowing that I will be in the company of a huge amount of new and returning old, yet-much-loved winter Lush products makes it very, very easy.

With all thanks to Lush Cosmetics, what used to be an unbearable time of year for me, is now not just bearable but exciting too.golden-wonder-bath-bombI am ashamed to admit that it took me until Christmas 2015¬†to actually try¬†the Golden Wonder bath bomb. In years prior to 2015,¬†I just wasn’t at all interested in the collection as a whole. I would always go for other bath bombs that in my eyes,¬†appeared¬†more interesting.

I am mortified that it took me so long to try the Golden Wonder bath bomb and my ignorance with it has taught me to never leave a Lush stone unturned.

After finally using the Golden Wonder bath bomb in 2015 and furthermore instantly falling in love with it, I knew that without the Golden Wonder bath bomb Christmas would never be the same again. It is now one of my essential winter time products.

If Lush ever dared to not bring it back I think I’d have some sort of break down. That is no exaggeration either, I LOVE IT more than any of the other winter bath bombs. Christmas isn’t Christmas if I don’t have the Golden Wonder bath bomb to enjoy.

Golden Wonder Bath Bomb

If I could only use 3 Lush scents for the rest of my life the scent of the Golden Wonder bath bomb would make the list without question.

The scent of the bath bomb is called Celebrate and since falling in love with the Golden Wonder bath bomb, I have made it my mission to collect anything else that shares its scent.

Some of my favourite Lush products from its scent family are the solid and liquid perfume, the First Snow dusting powder and the Celebrate body lotion.

The Celebrate scent is often compared to champagne. I however disagree, the scent of the Golden Wonder bath bomb is way too citrusy for me to ever think of it as¬†champagne inspired. I wouldn’t even put it in the same category as buck‚Äôs fizz. I urge anyone who isn‚Äôt sure on the scent to please give it a go, the more I use it, the more in love with it I fall.

Containing sweet orange, lime and cognac oil the Golden Wonder bath bomb smells to me just like Christmas, I can’t help but always subconsciously associate¬†the two together.

Celebrate has a warm and inviting scent that it is portrayed very well within all of the other Lush products that are blessed with its same scent. Once you are hooked on one Celebrate product you will be in search for others that smell the same. Before you know it you will be starting a Celebrate-scented-quest. Your mission (which you will have no trouble in choosing to accept) is to combine all of the Celebrate scented products you can lay your hands on to make one Christmas-crazy, Lush product cocktail!

As well as smelling absolutely amazing, the Golden Wonder bath bomb puts on a fantastic show once plonked into your bath water. The very first time I used it I actually shouted ‘OOO!’ followed by me cursing (a lot) as none of the photos I took did the bath bomb¬†any justice at all.

To this day I still haven’t captured any photos that I feel worthy of showing its full potential. You really have to try it for yourself to appreciate its true beauty.

Out of all of the bath bombs I have tried over the years Golden Wonder is still the one I will always remember as giving one of the best surprises upon first use.

When placed in the bath water the Golden Wonder bath bomb begins to ferociously fizz, forming a small stream of dazzlingly gold bubbles. After a short moment other colours appear from within the golden bath bomb too.

Nearer the end of the Golden Wonder’s performance small balls of pink, yellow, green and blue float to the surface, temporarily poker dotting the now deep blue, shimmery bath water.

 The Golden Wonder bath bomb is a real pleasure to watch in the bath tub and a great treat for winter tired skin too, an added bonus that I had forgot to mention is the lustre and miniature dissolvable stars in it.

The slight golden shimmer that is left after the bath bomb has dissolved along with the light dusting of stars makes the bath water appear like a clear night’s sky.

Everything I like about a bath bomb is in Golden Wonder, EVERYTHING!

I am so, so impressed with this bath bomb and was so from very first use. It is one of the only winter bath bombs that I really, really look forward to getting every year.

The Golden Wonder bath bomb will always be one of my all-time favourite Lush products,¬†the only reason I wouldn’t recommend it¬†to others is so¬†that there are more for me to buy and keep all for myself‚Ķ

Yog Nog Bath Bomb from Lush

Yog Nog Bath Bomb2
Slowly but surely I have been working my way through all of the winter 2015 Lush products.

Today I’d like to introduce you to the Yog Nog Bath Bomb. As you can see from the above picture, Yog Nog is a very unique¬†looking bath bomb. It really is like no other. It has the most beautiful exterior, instead of it just being the standard smooth bath bomb it has lots of little Christmas shapes all around it.

Lush have stated that Yog Nog is ‘sweeter than dipping into your biscuit tin,’ which I know has left a¬†lot of people intrigued. If you’re a frequent reader of my blog you’ll know that the ‘sweet products’ although very popular, are not always my favourite. Curiosity however took over and as soon as the 2015 Winter line became available online I ordered myself one to try.

Upon first sniff I was surprised at how much I actually did like¬†the scent of the Yog Nog bath bomb. Sweet things and I do not always have the best relationship. For this reason I was a little worried that I wouldn’t like it. Being honest,¬†I can’t even eat sweet things, I struggle after just two¬†bites of a¬†Kit Kat Chunky.

Although the Yog Nog bath bomb is sweet, there is definitely¬†a note of spiciness within it. I think that this is the Yog Nog bath bombs¬†saving grace with¬†me, without that small splash of spice¬†I don’t think I’d have been as keen of it as I was.

The Yog Nog bath bomb’s scent is compared to cinder toffee which makes it a great choice for a Christmas present for anyone with a super, sweet tooth.

Upon coming in contact with  the water, the Yog Nog bath bomb fizzes yellow and white.

As Yog Nog’s solid shell¬†dissolves away you start to notice that it has several lumps of soft, buttery, bath melt hidden inside.


A Yog Nog bath left my skin beautifully smooth, soft and moisturised. It hydrated my winter battered, dry skin perfectly. What made it really special was that the scent of it stayed with me on my skin, throughout the rest of the day.

I found this bath bomb very relaxing, the only thing I disliked about it was how much oil it left around my bath tub. Although it was amazing for hydrating my skin it made the tub very¬†slippery which is¬†a little dangerous for me in particular as I am not at all stable on my feet due to EDS. When getting in and out of the bath I had to be very careful but in all honesty I always do so in hindsight it wasn’t a bad trait.

Most Lush bath bomb products wash off of your bathtub with a quick splash of hot water from the shower head, Yog Nog however needed a little bit of help,¬†a dab of fairy liquid followed by the shower head removed it just fine. When you use a Lush product that is a little more hydrating than others, fairy liquid is actually the perfect thing to remove the excess oil left behind as it cuts through grease etc. It doesn’t only just work on dishes and cutlery but is also a very handy bathroom cleaner too!

I thoroughly enjoyed the Yog Nog bath bomb and I put it in amongst my other favourites Stardust, So White and Luxury Lush Pud.

The good news is they actually have a Yog Nog Soap and after Lush sent me a sample I ordered a great big bar of it, it smells so, so good!
