Lush Boo Bath Melt Review

Okay guys, so I only just finished using up this bath melt today… I know, pretty bad considering I received this as a gift from my partner on Halloween last year…

Anyways, I used it up so here is my review of the product! I hope you enjoy!

Side note: I used this bath melt more as a bubble bar… I’m not entirely sure why I had it in my head to use this product as a bubble bar, but I have a feeling the description on the Lush UK website said to use it as a bubble bar or something? I’ve searched everywhere for the UK description of this product and just cannot find it anywhere!

Photos below from left to right, top to bottom: First time I used Boo and the bubbles created before turning on jets, first time I used Boo and the bubbles after turning on the jets, second time I used Boo and the bubbles before turning on jets, second time using boo and the bubbles after turning on jets, Boo bath melt before first use. I was going to include an image of the bath melt before second use too, but it looked kinda gnarly if I’m going to be honest with you, so I thought it would be best not to do that…


Boo Bath Melt:

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This was a Halloween exclusive product in 2016, so it isn’t available to purchase at the moment. This also means that IF it is released again, there’s not necessarily a good chance that you’ll be able to get your hands on it again once Halloween is over. It is a pretty exclusive product so if you end up falling in love with it, good luck trying to stock up!

The colour this bath melt leaves the water is pretty basic, and honestly, isn’t that appealing either. It turns the bath water a sort of milky pale green colour… I really don’t know what to think of that, but I think I’m not 100% keen!

The scent is very strong, and I’m not sure if everyone would like it to be honest. It smells very floral. Extremely so. I’m guessing this is mainly due to it containing Geranium oil, but it isn’t just that the scent is extremely floral. The scent is also sort of.. spicy almost, but in a bitter sort of way. I’m guessing that part of the scent is due to the inclusion of ginger oil. The scent definitely catches in your throat slightly. Anyways, if you really aren’t a fan of your florals, you’ve been warned!!!

I actually didn’t find this bath melt to be that moisturising. It was moisturising, don’t get me wrong. It just wasn’t anywhere near as moisturising as I had anticipated it to be I suppose. It is the first bath melt I have used from Lush, so I expected it to be more moisturing than any other Lush bath product I have used in the past, considering that is a bath melt’s main focus. Butterbear Bath Bomb was definitely more moisturising though, and I’m pretty sure Rose Jam Bubbleroon and Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb were too, and probably some other products! If you want to get this product purely for its moisturising factor, I’d not really recommend it for those purposes alone!

This bath melt does produce bubbles, however, those bubbles to disappear throughout one’s time in the bath faster than bubbles produces from other Lush bubble bar products.


Pros:

This product is super cute! Looooooook at how cute he is I mean, c’mon…

This bath melt was moisturising, even if only subtly! 100% more moisturising than normal bath water and than some other Lush bath products.

Some people might like the milky colour of the bath.

This bath melt creates BUBBLES!!! Like, it REALLY creates bubbles!!! Lovely, foamy, fluffy bubbles :3 They filled my entire bath and were just brilliant!

I got 2 uses out of this little guy. TWO USES!

I found the scent to be really nice actually. Very fresh, crisp and clean smelling. I liked it! The sort of scent you’d like your home to smell like.

I received this as part of a gift from my partner, and it made such a cute gift and surprise for halloween! This would make a great halloween gift for the ones you love 😀

The product itself is super creamy, and melts in your hands. This is due to its main ingredient, cocoa butter. Lovely!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this was a nice bath product. I definitely didn’t dislike it, in fact, I think I rather liked it! I feel a tad confused about it, because so many others who have used up and reviewed this product have said how they dislike it…

Anyways, I found it to be very fresh, bubbly, simple, somewhat moisturising and the product itself looked super cute before use! I’m going to rate this product a 4/5* rating. It was a really good product – not absolutely amazing, but it was really nice.

I hope you enjoyed my review!

Lush Think Pink Bath Bomb Review

Hey guys! Here’s another Lush review 🙂 This bath bomb was a Birthday gift from my perfect mother in October, and I only just used it yesterday! I feel so blessed, it seems almost every product I review was a gift from someone! I guess they all know how much I love my Lush 🙂 I hope you enjoy the review!


Think Pink Bath Bomb:

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This bath bomb has an incredibly faint smell once in the bath. I have read reviews saying that this bath bomb actually has a very strong scent once in the bath when it is extremely fresh, but who knows! Either way, for me this bath bomb’s scent was very, very, VERY subtle once in the bath.

My bath bomb left a little pile of bath bomb dust in the bottom of my bath once it was done fizzing away! This wasn’t a big deal and honestly it was actually quite fun to swish the dust around to dissolve it into the water, but it still wasn’t quite what I would expect to happen with a bath bomb!

I wouldn’t think of my bath bomb as having been THAT old, but it really started to look it! The flowers on the top turned a dull yellow colour, and one fell off and went missing entirely! I kept this bath bomb in a big cardboard Lush box filled with packing peanuts and other Lush bath bombs and bubble bars, on the floor just outside my bathroom door. I guess I could have kept it further from the bathroom and then the bath bomb would have kept a bit better, but some people literally keep their bath bombs in the bathroom and I would have thought that would be the normal place to keep them, so I would have expected this bath bomb to keep fresh a liiiiiiiiiiiiittle bit longer than it did!

This bath bomb wasn’t incredibly moisturising, but it was somewhat 🙂

Because of all the confetti in the bath and all the powder I had to mix into the bath water, I didn’t really feel like my hair would be properly clean if I had washed it in the bath water, so I had to use the shower head to wash my hair. This isn’t a huge deal, but I do usually find it simpler to just wash my hair in the bath water, and sometimes just quickly rinse it off afterwards!

There wasn’t really any bath art left on the surface of my bath after using this bath bomb. It is definitely a simple one!

The scent that is present is incredibly sweet so if you’re not a person who is keen on sweet scents, I’d steer away from this little guy.


Pros:

This bath bomb was the cutest thing. Like, absolutely frickin adorable. I loved it so, so, so, so, SO much! It made such a cute gift from my mother and I absolutely loved its design! SO CUTE!

For people who DO like sweet scents, this one would be great for you! Out of the bath, it smelt to me like straight up sugar cake decorations. Like a really, really, really sweet scent, with a slight fruity floral hint. Once in the bath, the scent was sweet but less so, and more fruity, floral and slightly herbal. In the bath, the scent was INCREDIBLY subtle, but overall quite pleasant 🙂

The bath water this bath bomb gave was super girly. It also would make an absolutely perfect Valentines day bath bomb so if you’d like to gift somebody loads of bath bombs or something, you could definitely add this one to their gift along with all the bombs from the Valentine’s Day range! The bath water turns a subtle, see through pink colour, with little heats swirling around everywhere. A very romantic and girly bath indeed!

This bath bomb is super affordable and although it is small, its effects aren’t any less than a bigger bomb’s. Perhaps its ingredients are just more compact or something, I don’t know, but it definitely works just as well as bigger bath bombs! It leaves a lovely colour, loads of confetti hearts, a beautiful scent (although the scent is very subtle,) and lovely, soft, lightly moisturising bath water. Using this bath bomb was overall a really lovely experience!

Again, this was a gift and was an incredible one at that. I’d definitely highly recommend giving this to someone as a gift because it is just the cutessssst thing!

This bath bomb is vegan and from Lush!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I loved this bath bomb. It is absolutely adorable. Incredibly cute! I loved it sooooooooooooooo much and it being a gift just made it THAT much better! The scent could have done with being a lot stronger, and the bath bomb could have stood up against time a little better. I also would have preferred if the bath bomb dust DID dissolve in the water while fizzing away, rather than me having to do that myself. There were definitely some cons to this bath bomb but overall it was really sweet 🙂

Taking everything into consideration, I’m going to give this bath bomb a 5/5* rating! It was just so cute that despite all of its flaws, I enjoyed using this bath bomb so, so much! My highest rated bath bombs so far have generally been ones that I consider to be somewhat underrated – it just goes to show right?! You should always give EVERYTHING a go, because everyone is so unique and YOUR holy grail product probably won’t be the same as what somebody else’s will be!
