Love Locket Bath Bomb

How many of you are LUSH bath fans? After a long day out galloping through the snow or whatever you do in these frigid months, a LUSH bath is key at the end of the day. LUSH’s Valentine’s limited edition bath bomb, Love Locket, makes for a perfect bath! It is so big it splits up into three separate baths! I used the whole thing at once since my tub is huge:

HUGE BATH BOMB: this is probably the biggest bath bomb I have ever used from LUSH… it was bigger than my hand! The bath bomb is made to break into three separate parts so you can use it three times. I used all mine at once since my bath tub is pretty large! It was super easy to break… no need to bring out the rolling pin! I think the price for this ballistic ($10.95) is a bit over priced…. but it is basically a three bath use!

FRESH INGREDIENTS: like all LUSH products this bath bomb has many fresh ingredients which add to the overall texture and scent of the bath! Love Locket has jasmine absolute, fair trade vanilla absolute, neroli oil and gardenia extract in it! The smell of the bath was super mellow and calming. No crazy, over the top citrus scents here! I enjoyed having a calm bath! I read a book for about an hour and a half before noticing all that time went by soaking in my Love Locket! I was pretty water logged!

EFFECTS: Like most LUSH bath bombs, this one had some awesome effects! Every section of this bath bomb released mini pink heart confetti that did not melt in the bath! After you drain the tub, they get stuck to the bottom which was the only bummer. Other than the confetti there was not much else! The small heart had mini red pieces in it that melted. I wish there was some glitter or something to add to this ballistic! Maybe a sweet Valentine message like in the Blackberry Bomb?

LIMITED EDITION: Like all of the LUSH Valentine’s products, this one is limited edition! Get it as soon as possible! I am not sure when they will stop selling the Valentine goodies but it is probably sooner than later!

And of course… some social media to finish off this post. This Facebook post is from the LUSH Cosmetics Mohegan Sun Casino that describes Love Locket. I really like how they broke it in half! The insides of bath bombs are always mysteries!:

Father Christmas Bath Bomb

Everyone… I have an announcement to make… this is my last LUSH holiday bath review! Wow I miss the holidays already 😦 The LUSH products were great this year. I wanted to finish reviewing all of the LUSH holiday products before Valentine’s Day! I think I will accomplish this goal… I have one more product after this! Can anyone guess what it is?!

Here are picture of Father Christmas:

Positives:

  • Awesome holiday spirit – this is the Christmas bath bomb. Look at the pictures… you have the Saint Nicholas face, red/white colors and finally, the hidden green center! 
  • Great aroma – the smell of this bath bomb is unique… it is infused with mandarin oil which helps to soften the skin. Other fresh ingredients that contribute to the scent are  bergamot oil, orange flower absolute and cream of tartar. Pretty orange-y for a Christmas bath bomb right?

Negatives:

  • More please – I wish there was a bit more to this bath bomb. The concept of having a green and red bath bomb is brilliant around the Christmas time… but why not infuse it with insane luster or stick a secret note inside to brighten up someones holiday. I always look for surprises in my bath bombs !

So this is the last holiday bath product review until next year! Unfortunately you cannot purchase this bath ballistic anymore, but there will probably be another Father Christmas version out at the end of this year! I found some information about this limited edition ballistic on the LUSH UK website which you can find here. Did you try this bath bomb last season?!

Shoot for the Stars Bath Review

Hello alll! I am planning on going skiing today so that should be very fun since we have about 18 inches of fresh snow in New York! Since I am going to be going out and working my muscles in the bitter cold, I thought a bath bomb review would fit best today!

So here are some Shoot for the Stars action bath pictures:

Alright so as you can tell, this is a really cool and unique bath bomb! It smells of toffee and honey ( a twin to Honey I Washed the Kids soap). This bomb makes a very sweet bath! I loved it. It turns your water a deep purple but first goes through many different colorful phases. The first phase includes the yellow shooting star, this makes a purple and yellow swirl in your bath (pictures above). The second part of the bomb is the pink center with an enormous amount of silver glitter powder. This makes your bath very luxurious and glittery!!! I suggest this bath for anyone who loves a sweet, glittery sensation. Overall, this is a great holiday ballistic!

If you want to try this bath bomb, you have to quick! It is only out for the holidays. You can find it online at: http://www.lushusa.com/Shoot-for-the-Stars/03895,en_US,pd.html#q=star%2520&start=15

Let me know if you have tried this ballistic!!! Tata for now!
