Following my hip replacement way back in September my hip precautions meant I wasn’t allowed to have a bath. Some days I would have gladly murdered a person to have a soak in a hot bath but the risk of dislocating my brand new hip was too high so I patiently waited (although some might say I wasn’t that patient).
The other week I was finally allowed to climb into the bath again and to celebrate Neil treated me to three Lush bath bombs (He’s a good lad).
My first bath in 4 months was the wonderfully named Never Mind The Ballistics. I can’t give you any more information on this one, it was a Christmas bomb I think and was half price, it’s no longer on the website.
I thought this bath bomb was really pretty. It didn’t fizz very much to start with and I suspect this was due to it being near the end of its shelf life. It smelled wonderful, really citrusy and it turned the bath orange.
After a few minutes, the bath bomb got going and it spewed a wonderful pink fizz into the water.
Never Mind The Ballistics created some very beautiful bath art! The smell of the bomb lingered on my skin for ages afterwards and the bathroom still smelled of it the next day.
Next up I tried Frozen. Frozen is £4.25 and Lush say this about it:
Do you want to have a bath bomb? Do you want to splash and play? Enjoy the most magical soak in the kingdom with this shimmering blue bath bomb, which spills out rolling snowdrifts of silver lustre. Uplifting neroli from Tunisia and precious rose oil from Turkey are sure to spread a little sunshine and melt the iciest of moods. If your day’s felt like a series of doors in your face, this shiny, sky blue bomb filled with sparkle provides the perfect fairytale ending. Step in, take a deep breath and let it go.
Clearly inspired by the film, this bomb fizzed nicely away in my bathtub.
I chose this because of the grapefruit oil in it. Grapefruit is one of my favourite smells. It left the water really shimmery with a beautiful mermaid underwater shine to it.
The last bath bomb I tried, Lava Lamp, was my least favourite.
Priced at £4.25, Lush say this about it:
Just go with the flow and get groovy baby. This time machine of bobbing purple orbs – made with 100% traceable cocoa butter – will create the hypnotic spectacle of a lava lamp in your own bath, taking you back to the swinging sixties. A triple whammy of Sicilian mandarin, tangerine and orange flower give this vibrant bomb a fragrance like fruit pastilles.
I love how bright this little guy is. It totally reminded me of Charmander too. This bath bomb smelled really good, so orangey. Neil commented on how much it smelled of oranges when he came upstairs.
This bomb practically erupted as soon as it hit the water. It fizzed and bubbled and was a big fiery sight to behold (It really reminded me of Charmander at this point and I think Lush should create some Pokemon themed bath bombs – I have loads of ideas for this Lush if you are interested!?).
The purple cocoa butter orbs were a little weird. Once I’d soaked for a while, my skin felt so nice and smooth. In fact, 24 hours later my skin still feels really nice. Unfortunately, the purple oil deposited itself all over my bathtub, meaning I had to bleach out the bath as soon as I was finished so Neil wouldn’t slip in the oily mess in the shower the next day. I think this is the main reason I wouldn’t got for this bomb again. It looked really pretty in the bath and smelled really nice though.
Have you tried any of these bath bombs? What did you think? Let me know below.
