Another week, another Lush Bath Bomb. Up until recently, I wasn't too bothered about bath bombs, or Lush products as a whole, to be honest. I couldn't see the point of spend £3, £4 on a bath bomb of which I would get one use. Having a relaxing bath that costs roughly £4 per time is a fairly expensive habit to get into so an occasional treat is fine by me!
The most recent bath bomb I purchased was the Lush Cinders Bath Bomb. It seems to just be out at Christmas time to enjoy around the festive season, although you wouldn't immediately think this from its immediate appearance. Whilst it does not scream Father Christmas or Yuletide Joy, it does smell an awful lot like Christmas. It smells spicy which is incredibly warming and immediately makes me think of Christmas!
About the Lush Cinders Bath Bomb:
"With stimulating cinnamon leaf oil, the warmth of the hearth and the scents of hot fruit punch are a bath away. Skip the open fire and curl up with a fireside gathering of coarse sea salt and popping candy instead."
Doesn't it just sound warm and comforting? I feel all warm inside just reading the description! Like with all of the Lush bath bombs I buy, I try not to look them up online beforehand so I get a nice little surprise when I drop the bath bomb under hot water. Because of this, I didn't quite hear the sound of the bath bomb crackling like fireside, purely because I wasn't listening out for it. When dropped under hot water, Cinders immediately dissolves into a yellow haze and the red crackles dissolve with the hot water. Whilst it wasn't as aesthetically pleasing when dissolving like some other Lush bath bombs, it was nice. Not spectacular, just nice.
Unfortunately, like a previous Christmas Lush bath bomb I have tried, Dashing Santa, Cinders was not too pleasant to sit in. Not because of the warming, spicy scent, but purely because of the colour. Whilst Dashing Santa made it look like I was on a rather heavy period, Cinders made it look as if I couldn't be bothered to get out of the bath to have a wee. Urine yellow does not a pleasant bath make.
Overall, it was a pleasant bath bomb that whilst it smelt divine, nothing too amazing happened and the final colour made me want to get out of the bath immediately.
