Sugar Plum Fairy Naked Lip Scrub from Lush

Sugar Plum Fairy Naked Lip Scrub

One of the very first products that I ever got from Lush was a pot of their Bubblegum lip scrub, from the very first use I was hooked. When it comes down to lip exfoliation you can’t go wrong with Lush. Up until this years winter line came out, Lush’s lip scrubs had only ever been sold in a glass 25g pot. Now, they also come in a ‘naked’ form.

The main ingredient in all of Lush’s lip scrubs (potted or naked) is caster sugar. When I tried my very first Lush lip scrub, I was blown away at the fact that a product with such a basic ingredients list worked so much better than any other lip exfoliator that I had tried before. Caster sugar is the perfect ingredient for gentle yet effective exfoliation.

Making a naked and solid version of their much loved potted lip scrubs is in my eyes the best idea Lush have ever had. The potted lip scrubs work like a dream but since trying the naked versions I doubt i’ll be buying the potted versions ever again. Lush have managed to improve what I already deemed a perfect product.

SPFNLS2

I honestly raved about the potted lip scrubs to anyone who would listen. The naked version however blows the potted version right out of the water. I don’t think I’ve ever been this impressed with a Lush product shake-up. Smelling almost identical to the, The Comforter bubble bar and shower cream the Sugar Plum Fairy Naked Lip Scrub has a beautiful and rich berry scent, living up to its scent families name, it truly does have a warm and comforting fragrance.

The difference between the naked and potted lip scrubs apart from the obvious is that the naked lip scrubs are solid. When I have been asked to describe the new naked lip scrubs texture I always compare it to a very moisturising sugar cube. I know that isn’t technically a thing but it’s the only way I can think of describing it. It is solid and scrubby just like a sugar cube, it however is strangely moisturising too.

The solid lip scrubs are nothing like their potted equivalent, they do not crumble at all. I always make a right mess when using the potted versions, often accidentally wasting some of the product as it falls before making it to my lips. With the naked lip scrubs there is no mess or product waste at all.

My favourite thing about the naked lip scrubs is that they are solid, because of this you can apply so much more pressure on to your lips during application, it makes buffing away the dry bits of skin so much easier than it was before. If you have long nails like me then you’ll be pleased to know that there is also no more trouble fishing the product out of the pot.

To use, all you have to do is rub it onto your lips in a similar way you would put lipstick on. Once you feel satisfied with the coverage, you then just wipe the sugar away to reveal smooth and lovely looking lips. Some wipe it off while others lick, both options are perfectly safe.

Just like the Black Rose naked lip scrub the Sugar Plum Fairy naked lip scrub is incredibly hydrating for your lips, I wasn’t expecting this at all as the potted versions aren’t anything as moisturising as these. I am over the moon with all of the new naked lip scrubs, I hope Lush bring out more of them soon as I want them all. I don’t think I have ever been more satisfied in a product before. Lush’s perfection par just got a whole lot higher!

Snow Fairy Naked Shower Gel from Lush

Snow Fairy Naked Shower Gel

Last Winter I decided to step out of my comfort zone when it came to trying Lush products. There would strictly be no more avoiding a product based on my first impression of it, I was going to give each product a fair chance to impress me. I make it no secret that the super sweet products from Lush are normally my least favourite. Since introducing this new rule of mine it has really helped me broaden my Lush horizons. There are so many Lush scents and products I now love that I wouldn’t ever have considered trying before.

The Snow Fairy scent is one of Lush’s most popular winter fragrances, its scent has been used in so many products in so many formats that it’s not very easy to remember them all. I honestly wasn’t that sold on the scent at first, I have however warmed to it over the years. The fact that it is bright pink works in its favour too as pink is my favourite colour.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll have heard about Lush’s new naked products. Much like the Snow Fairy scent at first I wasn’t sold on the naked products. After trying the Twilight naked shower gel I however decided that they were actually quite a good idea. Especially for people such as myself that struggle with bottles and lids because of bad hands.

The Snow Fairy naked shower gel has pretty much the same ingredients as the original bottled up Snow Fairy shower gel, the only difference is the sodium stearate, this ingredient is what makes the product solid. All of the naked shower gels work in exactly the same way as their bottled equivalents. To look at I’d say it was soap, despite this the naked shower gels contain no soap base at all. You use a naked shower gel just as you would a normal shower gel. Instead of fiddling with a lid and then squidiging the product out of the bottle you now just have to lather the naked shower gel similar to how you would a bar of soap. (It however really isn’t a bar soap!)

The naked shower gels are squishy to the touch, solid enough to hold their bottle-shape but squishy enough to help give you an easy lather. The Snow Fairy naked shower gel is just as consistent as the normal shower gel is, I cannot tell the difference between the naked and normal shower gels once I am lathering it up, washing my body.

Overall I think the naked Snow Fairy shower gel is just as good as the bottled version. I actually find it more moisturising, although you can layer the Snow Fairy scent up onto your skin further by using some Snow Fairy body conditioner alongside it, I don’t feel it is necessary once you’ve used the Snow Fairy naked shower gel. Snow Fairy is not one of my favourites of the winter scents but the Snow Fairy naked shower gel has earnt itself a place up on my shower gel shelf, this way I have easy access to it and can use it whenever I please.

Buck’s Fizz Body Conditioner from Lush

Buck's Fizz Body ConditionerBody conditioners are basically body lotions that can be used in the bath or shower. They are perfect if you’re lazy like me and can never be bothered to moisturise after getting out of the bath or shower. All of Lush’s body conditioners are designed to make keeping your skin moisturised an effortless task.

As soon as I see leaked photographs of the Buck’s Fizz body conditioner online, I had high hopes that it would be Celebrate scented. Lush’s Celebrate scent is a favourite of mine and features in some of the best winter products Lush have on offer, the Golden Wonder bath bomb, Celebrate body lotion and Celebrate shower gel just to name a few. When I finally came across a pot of it at the Lush Showcase 2017 I was ecstatic to find out that Buck’s Fizz was in fact Celebrate scented!

Packed full of orange, lime and cognac oil, Buck’s Fizz has the perfect winter esque scent, its citrus-fruit kick gives you a boost while the cognac oil leaves you feeling warm and snug as a bug.

Bright orange in colour, Buck’s Fizz body conditioner is a sight for sore eyes. I don’t think I have ever found a Lush body conditioner more inviting than Buck’s Fizz, if I could get inside the pot of it, I would. When using a body conditioner I always begin with a little of it in my hand. I then work it into my body paying special attention to any dry patches I might have such as, my elbows or knees.

To get the most out of the product all you really need is a small amount from the pot. With Buck’s Fizz body conditioner being such a gloriously thick and creamy formula, I really wasn’t expecting such a small amount  of it to go as far as it does.

Its beautiful scent really hits you once you start to put it on, the heat of the water seems to intensify the scent leaving you feeling content and care free. After massaging it into your body you are meant to gently rinse yourself off followed by you then patting yourself dry with a towel.

I advise that you do not go crazy with the rinsing off, leaving a small amount of it on is the same as applying a body lotion. When I have used just enough of it to do my whole body, I find it soaks into your skin very quickly leaving it looking and feeling healthy, hydrated and luxurious.

As well as giving you rock-star skin, the Buck’s Fizz scent also stays with you for the best part of the rest of the day. Its scent once on your skin is more subtle than in the pot, I however still really, really like it.

There’s something so incredibly moreish about the Celebrate scent, it just makes me feel so happy, I cannot recommend this body conditioner enough. A big thank you to Lush for creating another amazing Celebrate scented product for me to obsess about. Whoop, whoop!

Star Light Star Bright Bath Melt from Lush

Star Light Star Bright Bath Melt

The Star Light Star Bright Bath Melt is a Lush golden oldie that has made a return to all stores for 2017’s Winter line. Last year several Lush products received face lifts, the most noticeable being the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb. This year Star Light Star Bright was the product to be tweaked.

In store you cannot see any obvious differences between the old and new versions. When you however use it, its alterations become crystal clear. Unfortunately I never had the pleasure of using the previous version so I can only compare from other people’s photographs. Even without these photographs I have heard no negative feedback in regards to how it has been altered at all, I therefore feel safe in saying that it’s an improvement.

Star Light Star Bright is one of the largest of the Lush bath melts that I have tried, seeing as I haven’t ever been very keen on the Snow Angel bath melt I was really pleased to see an alternative larger bath melt included in this years regular Winter line.

The Star Light Star Bright bath melt is exactly the same size as the Stardust bath bomb, I’m sad this bath bomb didn’t make a return this year, Star Light Star Bright has however helped fill the void its absence has left. As Lush bath melts go, Star Light Star Bright is rather heavy, sadly some of the ones I have used have been sinkers, others have however worked well. Even the sinkers create some of the prettiest bath art when held at the water surface.

Ideally I’d love for them all to float as holding them is a lot more effort than I’d like to exert when attempting to take a relaxing bath, the bath art is however worth it. As soon as the Star Light Star Bright bath melt comes into contact with the water its coat of biodegradable, silver-lustre begins to float off of the bath melt revealing a plain white star. As this goes on, the bath water becomes decorated with the most beautiful, silver shimmer leaving you feeling like the nights sky.

Star Light Star Bright is often mistaken for a bath bomb, this is because of its larger size and also because of its performance in the bath. Upon first use, once the silver lustre had separated from the melt I thought that, that was the end of this products show. Then an explosion of colour burst out of it.

Most of the bath melts I have used previous to this have never created so much colour and beautiful bath art. Normally I find that the melts just melt away, leaving hardly any colour at all, for this reason I would say that Star Light Star Bright is truly one of a kind.

This bath melt is also perfect for winter battered skin, it makes the water so soft and hydrating with its murumuru butter, when the colours erupt from it, it shows a variety of colours reminiscent of the Roller bath bomb, both for the pretty patterns and its colours.

Scent wise, Star Light Star Bright is one of the more subtle scented products available in this years winter range. Containing ginger, lime and lavender oil I expected it to have more of a kick. It’s lighter scent however works very well with me, sometimes its nice to try a lighter scent.

If you’re lucky enough to purchase A Star Light Star Bright bath melt that doesn’t sink then you’re in for one of the prettiest baths Lush have created to date. Sinker or not, the hydrating qualities of this melt are spot-on. The colourful show it puts on (if it does stay afloat) makes this bath melt worth every penny too. I’ll finish this review off with a photograph I took of the water once the bath melt had dissolved, it creates one of the prettiest baths I have ever had the pleasure of soaking in.

Pumpkin Bath Bomb from Lush

pumpkin-bath-bomb

The Pumpkin Bath Bomb was first released by Lush as a part of their 2016 Halloween line, when I heard the news that it would be making a return this year I was so pleased. Originally the Pumpkin bath bomb wasn’t the bath bomb I was most interested in from 2016’s Halloween range, its vanilla sweet and cinnamon spicy scent however won me over. I can never resist cinnamon!

I have been told by several reliable, pumpkin spice latte fans that the Pumpkin bath bomb is the fresh cosmetics product equivalent. Therefore if a cheeky cup of pumpkin spice isn’t quite hitting the spot for you anymore you may want to indulge yourself by using a Pumpkin bath bomb or two.

pumpkin-2

The Pumpkin bath bomb was actually the first I tried from the rather large loot of products I bought from the very first Lush Creative Showcase back in September 2016.

Upon first sniff the Pumpkin bath bomb really reminded me of the Yog Nog bath bomb from previous years. I thought maybe this was its substitute however it really isn’t at all related. The spice in both had me confused. Both are very warming bath bombs and Pumpkin’s warming elements is what first caught my interest, which is why it was one of the first I tried.

Suffering with chronic pain I am always on the look out for warm and relaxing products. I am so pleased that Lush brought not only the Pumpkin bath bomb back this year but also spoiled us with another spicy bath bomb, the Christmas Sweater.

pumpkin-4

The Pumpkin bath bomb is a very fast fizzer. I however did not mind this as the quicker it dissolves, the quicker I can lay back and soak up all of its relaxing and warm awesomeness. A lot of people have asked me on Instagram and on here about cutting up bath bombs to make them go further, for example halving the bomb so that you can get 2 baths out of it instead of 1.

For some bath bombs I think it would be a Lush crime to cut them up, the Pumpkin bath bomb is however one that I’d say you can split between 2 baths without taking anything away from how it performs, smells and how it affects you (essential oils wise) in the bath tub.

Overall I am very impressed with the Pumpkin bath bomb, it might not be as colourful as the other bath bombs currently available but the spiciness with in it has worked wonders on my aching muscles. I will without question be stocking up on these before Halloween has been and gone!

Black Rose Naked Lip Scrub from Lush

Black Rose Naked Lip Scrub

One of the very first products that I ever got from Lush was a pot of lip scrub, from the very first use I was hooked. Previous to this I had never used an exfoliator for my lips that worked better. I now only use Lush lip scrubs. Before the release of the Black Rose Naked Lip Scrub, Lush’s lip scrubs had always been sold in a glass 25g pot. Lush are however striving to change the cosmetic industry by creating packageless ‘naked’ products. Enter Lush’s NEW naked lip scrubs.

The main ingredient in all of Lush’s lip scrubs is caster sugar. I was blown away that a product with such a basic ingredient list worked so much better than any other expensive exfoliators that I had tried and hated. Caster sugar is the perfect ingredient for gentle yet effective exfoliation. Making a naked and solid version of their much loved potted lip scrubs is quite literally the best idea Lush have ever had.

img_5294-1

The potted lip scrubs work like a dream but since trying the naked versions I doubt i’ll be buying the potted versions ever again. Lush have managed to improve what I already deemed as perfect, I honestly raved about the potted lip scrubs but they are nothing compared to the new naked versions. Black Rose is from the Yummy Yummy Yummy scent family and therefore shares its scent with the much loved Roller bath bomb. It has a beautiful and light fruity scent and one that I don’t mind using on my lips at all.

The difference between the naked and potted lip scrubs apart from the obvious is that the naked lip scrubs are solid, when I have been asked to describe how the new naked lip scrub feels I always compare it to a sugar cube.

With the lip scrub being solid you can apply so much more pressure on your lips during application, it makes buffing away the dry bits of skin so much easier than it was before. If you have long nails like me then you’ll be pleased to know that there is also no more trouble fishing the product out of the pot. In the photo above I have already used the lip scrub 6 times. A little goes more than a long way and it works quickly and with minimum effort.

All you have to do is rub it on your lips in a similar way you would put lipstick on. Once you feel satisfied you then just wipe the sugar away to reveal smooth and lovely looking lips, some even just lick it off! it’s perfectly safe to do so too.

Another thing I noticed is how moisturising the Black Rose lip scrub was I wasn’t expecting that at all, especially considering that it’s a solid product. I am over the moon with the Black Rose naked lip scrub, I don’t think I have ever been more satisfied in a product before. I am so excited to try and review the others too.

Sherbet Dip Bath Bomb from Lush

Sherbet Dip Bath Bomb

I have made it no secret that I am rather unhappy with Lush’s most recent decision to discontinue several of my all time favourite regular-line bath bombs, this unhappiness was intensified even more when I see that this year’s Winter line didn’t include the So White, Mistletoe, Northern Lights or Star Dust bath bombs. Product wise I feel that Lush have focused a lot more on their bubble bars this season, I love bubble bars so this isn’t the worst news but I adore a new bath bomb just as much. For me, this has left a lot riding on the Sherbet Dip Bath Bomb’s shoulders.

The Sherbet Dip bath bomb is a significantly large bath bomb, shaped to look like a giant sherbet lemon sweet, I can see why Lush fans with a sweet tooth have got all hot and bothered by it. Bright yellow in colour the Sherbet Dip bath bomb is full of lemony fresh citrus oils making it a great product to use when you’re running low on energy and need a pick-me-up. That last sentence is a description of me every day this time of year so of course I had to give this bath bomb a go.

img_3994a.png

The Sherbet Dip bath bomb contains grapefruit, Sicilian lemon and lime oil. Each of these ingredients have been carefully selected and blended together to create an energising and refreshing bathing experience. As soon as the Sherbet Dip bath bomb hits the water it starts to fizzle and hiss while sending out waves of an energising, sweet-citrus fragrance.

Its scent isn’t quite the same as a Sherbet Lemon sweet but it does still pack a punch, it’s not as fierce as the likes of the Avobath bath bomb which I guess isn’t a bad thing if you like the tamer Lush scents. I really expected the Sherbet Dip bath bomb to contain some popping candy it however does not. Be that as it may I was still surprised when its green center was revealed!


If you’re looking for spectacular bath art then the Sherbet Dip bath bomb isn’t for you. In comparison to some of last years bath bombs (that didn’t come back this year) I just can’t see why this bath bomb has been chosen over them? I totally get that some bath bombs aren’t all about the bath art, the Blackberry bath bomb is a perfect example of a bath bomb you buy because of its scent and its calming ingredients rather than the show it puts on. I just don’t find the Sherbet Dip bath bomb that great of a scent or show. For its size I am surprised on how fast it dissolves too.

By all means it’s not a bad bath bomb I just feel as if Lush could have done a little bit more with it. Last years range was so much more creative, before I finish this review up I’d like to stress that Sherbet Dip’s scent isn’t at all unpleasant, a Sherbet Dip bath leaves my skin feeling refreshed and soft, the scent doesn’t however last on your skin at all and left me very underwhelmed.

Once Upon A Time Body Lotion from Lush

Once Upon A Time Body Lotion.png

I’m still heartbroken from finding out that Lush didn’t bring the So White Bath Bomb back for Winter this year. However when I heard that Lush had brought out a body lotion that shared its scent I softened towards them a little. The sweet scent of fresh, crisp apples will always be welcome in my bathroom, whatever the format. The So White scent gets me every time, I can never, ever resist using it once I’ve caught a whiff.

The brand new Once Upon A Time Body Lotion is pastel green in colour and is of the same consistency as the Celebrate body lotion. I was surprised of its colour as I expected it to be a lot like the So White shower gel, white. Its name also got me very, very excited for obvious reasons, it’s my dream Lush product!

I have noticed that the Once Upon A Time body lotion doesn’t have many of the same ingredients as the So White bath bomb and shower gel. This made me a little weary, I thought that maybe it being So White scented was a false claim. At the Lush Showcase I tracked it down before any other product and was relieved and excited upon finding it as it smelt just as good as the bath bomb.

Once Upon A Time2

Even though the bath bomb didn’t make a return this year its shower jelly equivalent did, Santa’s Belly is yet another Winter product that shares the So White scent. As soon as I had bought Once Upon A Time all I wanted to do was go home and use everything I had in its scent, finishing off with the Once Upon A Time body lotion of course.

After using Santa’s Belly in the shower it does leave my skin a little dry, I feel clean and fresh but I just need a little bit of extra moisture. Once Upon A Time body lotion has solved this problem for me, I can now put the body lotion on after I have got out of the shower and the best thing about it is that I am just adding to the Santa’s Belly, So White scent instead of masking it with another completely different scented body lotion. I hate combining scents if I can help it so this small fact makes me very happy indeed.

Once Upon A Time3

I have used the Once Upon A Time body lotion every day since I got my pot at the showcase back on the 5th of September and it’s incredibly hydrating. My normal go-to body lotions have always been Celebrate and as of last year (2016) Sleepy. It’s nice to have something that smells completely different to use, what makes it even better is that the quality of Once Upon A Time is just as high end as the aforementioned body lotions too!

A little amount of Once Upon A Time goes a long way, when people say this about a product that isn’t solid there is a common misconception that it is runny, I wouldn’t say the formula was runny though, it’s just the right consistency and is quick and easy to rub in. Its scent also stays on your skin for a good 5 to 6 hours after applying it which is a bonus when you love the scent as much as I do. I will most certainly be stocking up on this before Winter 2017 is through.

Plum Snow Bubble Bar from Lush

Lush’s Plum Snow Bubble Bar shares its scent with the hugely popular shower gel Plum Rain. Just like the shower gel it is a dark and sexy purple. Out of the wide selection of bubble bars released this Winter, I’d say that Plum Snow is the biggest as well as the best value for money.

The bubble bar in the photo above was actually made by me, I’m so ridiculously proud of myself (even though it was really easy) That’s not me belittling the Lush compounders by the way, what I achieved in 10 minutes they could do in seconds! It’s a skill I wish I had, making it was so much fun and such a therapeutic process.

The Plum Rain scent family is a fairly new one, the shower gel equivalent of Plum Snow was only released last Summer, it is fairly unexplored in other product formats, there has only been a shower gel and body spray prior to this, I was therefore really excited to hear of it coming out as a bubble bar. Plum Snow’s scent is one of the most interesting scents Lush have on offer, the scent is refreshing, warm and inviting, I can never get enough of it.

A very little amount of Plum Snow goes a very long way, due to the bubble bars size I was not expecting this at all. What I initially thought was fairly good value for money is actually incredibly good value for money. The smallest amount creates copious amounts of fluffy white bubbles and its scent once mixed with the hot water is just as delightful as the shower gel.

Plum Snow not only creates mounds and mounds of fluffy white bubbles but also turns your bath water a gorgeous shade of purple, it is such a deep and beautifully rich purple, it’s a colour you’d expect to see an evil queen’s cloak in, in a Disney film. There is just something so majestic about it. It’s actually a very similar shade of purple to the dresses my bridesmaids wore at my husband and I’s wedding earlier this year.

I just can’t get over how dazzling the water looks underneath the blanket of bubbles, it’s so pigmented and as I said above a little of the product goes a very long way, I used the smallest amount for the below photo!

Not only does Plum Snow smell and look delightful once in the bath, its waters are also silky smooth and fabulous at keeping your skin hydrated. Lying back in a Plum Snow bath is my idea of heaven after a long and hard day. It soothes away any tension and helps me get into a nice and relaxed state of mind.

The Plum Snow bubble bar has satisfied me in every which way, it ticks every box in what I like in a bubble bar and it made its way onto my favourite bubble bar list from first use. It’s huge, a little of it goes a long way, it smells incredible and creates so many bubbles and the most beautiful purple water. I really hope Lush continue to expand the Plum Rain scent through other products, a body lotion would be very welcomed into my home, hint, hint!

Christmas Sweater Bath Bomb from Lush

Christmas Sweater Bath BombI know, I know, it’s only September how dare I use the C word. I wouldn’t normally use it until November at the earliest myself but after last weeks Lush Creative Showcase, I’ll admit to over indulging in the making of Christmas products, with it I got a little carried away, being surrounded by all of Lush’s brand new Winter line products didn’t help either.

I was a little disappointed at the smaller (brand new to me) bath bomb collection this Winter, this meant there was a lot riding on this red and white bath bombs shoulders. As I said above, I would normally leave the in-your-face-Christmas-product-reviews until a few weeks before Christmas itself but once I’d used the Christmas Sweater Bath Bomb I couldn’t help but want to share my thoughts with you on it as soon as humanly possible. Enter my first ‘C word’ product review in the festive month of September…

phonto-15

The Christmas Sweater bath bomb was the first of the new bath bombs to catch my eye at the 2017 Lush Creative Showcase. Piled up high, there was just something about this products warm colours that had me intrigued. I went straight over to the nearest display of them to give one a sniff.

As its name would suggest, the Christmas Sweater’s design is inspired by the infamous Christmas sweater, decorated with 2 stitch-like reindeer and snowflakes, this product is quite literally a warm and cheery bath bomb equivalent of a snuggly Christmas sweater. This bath bomb is the answer to my prayers, although I really did want to see a return of the Hot Toddy shower gel and the Christmas Kisses bubble bar the Christmas Sweater bath bomb has similar elements, this left me super eager to try it.

phonto-14

As soon as the Christmas Sweater bath bomb hits the water a wave of thick, bright red foam erupts out of it, jam packed with spicy and stimulating ingredients such as cinnamon, ginger and clove bud this bath bomb is perfect for me. Due to several medical conditions I unfortunately struggle with widespread chronic pain every day, there is no escape from it but using products such as the Christmas Sweater bath bomb helps a lot.

Much like the Cinders bath bomb, Christmas Sweater helps put my aching muscles at ease, I am so glad that Lush have listened to their customers, there is always space for warmer, more spicy products. Since Lush discontinued their Phoenix Rising and Granny Takes A Dip bath bombs I have really struggled to find a bath bomb that helps so well. After just one go of the Christmas Sweater bath bomb, I knew that I’d most certainly be stocking up on this before Winter is through.

CSBB collage

Another surprise I wasn’t expecting from the Christmas Sweater bath bomb was the amazing bath art, I couldn’t stop taking photographs, I always try to keep my reviews short and sweet meaning I don’t include many photos, I couldn’t however not share the above photos with you. Reds, oranges and whites, not only was Christmas Sweater a treat for my aching body but also my eyes.

Scent wise I’d compare the Christmas Sweater bath bomb to the (mentioned above) Hot Toddy shower gel, it however isn’t as strong, it’s a subtle cinnamon scent with a slight spice. Just writing this review is making me want to use one again. I cannot wait to get my new bathtub in so that I can use this must-have Winter product until my heart’s content. Well done Lush you’ve captured Christmas in this bath bomb perfectly!
