Lush Bath Bomb – Thundersnow

Price: $6.95


Hubbygift_2This was a part of my “Christmas Bathtime Favorites” Box (not to mention Intergalactic!). I’m sad to say this was a limited edition. You can’t find it on the Lush page anymore.. but as with most other Lush products, this may return.

I’ve still about 6-7 more bath bombs to go!

thunder1_sbMine was a tad more glitzy and messy, since it had been tumbling around with other bombs for a month or two.

You can detect flecks of Golden Wonder and Star Light Star Bright.

This one makes an odd popping sound as it melts. It apparently has some popping candy packed inside itself, along with peppermint oil and cocoa absolute.

The bomb is supposed to smell like cocoa and mint (a peppermint mocha, if you will) but it felt more powdery-sweet and pillowy, more like chocolate vanilla ice cream in a dry “space ice cream” form than something like.. peppermint patty? Peppermint chocolate milk in powder form? It’s hard to say.

That vanilla-chocolate swirl is intoxicating though. I loved it.

I only wish the scent lasted longer. I didn’t drain immediately and let the colors simmer for about ten minutes, but the scent didn’t last long. That initial waft when you first pitch the bomb is probably the strongest scent you’ll get with this bath bomb.

 

LUSH – Shoot for the Stars Bath Bomb

shootstars5


Price: $7.75


I’ve always had a thing about constellations, the moon, and the night sky.

This had to be the first.

Hubbygift_2“Shoot for the Stars” was a part of the LUSH “Christmas Bathtime Favorites” set my SO gifted me.

(That’s why it’s covered in miscellaneous glitter and pink powder; they’ve been snuggling all together)

Screen Shot 2018-01-02 at 5.41.26 PMThis has bergamot and Brazilian orange oil, but it doesn’t smell too citrusy. It had a more toffee-floral scent, if that makes sense. Very small hint of citrus.

It leaves your skin smelling like “Honey I Washed the Kids” and “Honey Bee.”

Watch it go:

Much like Lush Dragon’s Egg, this one goes fast. It spews and gushes blue until it leaves behind three golden stars that melts into pretty glitter goo you can smear on your skin.

I’m sad my lackluster bathroom light tinted the whole shot. Thankfully, even with the yellowish tinge, you can tell how deep the colors are. Deep sea blue.

shootstars2Here’s a color-corrected version, though it still doesn’t do this bomb justice.

In the right bottom corner, you can see the leftover stars.

shootstars3When you smoosh the leftover stars, you get this golden glitter goo that feels just like a rice-powder scrub, grainy and slick.

I hope they release this again. It’s too good not to.

PS: if you have dry skin, don’t skip the lotion after this bomb. Some bath bombs are moisturizing enough for me to go without, but this one will leave your skin dry after awhile. Not too lasting. But the scent lingers.
