Lush Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb Review.

Hey guys! Again, I’m sorry for the late review! I’ve been stashing this bath bomb away since my trip to Berlin in February of this year.

Again, this bath bomb become very damp while in my storage, and became somewhat… Warped? It still smelled fine and the only discolouration on the bath bomb was due to ink from its blue paper bag transferring onto it. Regardless, I made sure to use it ASAP after noticing! This will however have affected the performance of this bath bomb, so keep that in mind whilst reading this review.

Also, I realise that it would be a good idea to swish around the bath water and take some photos of the colour that it turns overall, which I will make sure to do in the future!

I hope you enjoy!


Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb Review:

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

There are rose petals within this bath bomb, that I was completely unaware about beforehand. I don’t know if they are like this if you use the bath bomb straight after purchasing it while it is still very fresh, but the rose petals for me were very dark brown, dead and honestly, kinda gross. I didn’t like them being in my bath with me at all honestly, and took them out pretty much as soon as I got in. If you don’t like the idea of old bits of flowers floating around your bath tub then perhaps it would be best to give another bath bomb a try!

This was an exclusive bath bomb from from the Valentines day collection early on in this year. This bath bomb is not available all year, which means it’s quite difficult to get your hands on!

The scent of Rose Bombshell is very light, sweet, clean, powdery and floral. If you’re not a big fan of typically feminine scents, you probably won’t like how this one smells.

The scent is also quite strong, so you can’t really get away with taking a bath with this bath bomb if you don’t like the scent very much.

Rose Bombshell turns the bath water a delicious raspberry, bubblegum, summer fruits pink colour. Although I loved my bath water being this shade of pink, I know that a lot of people absolutely hate the colour and find it obnoxious, so steer clear of Rose Bombshell if you’re one of these people!

My bath bomb sank to the bottom of the bath tub straight away and didn’t create much surface bath art, however, this is likely due to me storing the bath bomb for a long time and it becoming damp. I have however read that more and more of Lush’s bath bombs have been performing this way lately, so it could be Lush’s problem that it performed this way for me. Regardless, if you like a really good show in your bath, I’d steer clear of Rose Bombshell if it is released in the future!


Pros:

I personally really like the colour that Rose Bombshell turned my bath water. The colour reminded me a lot of the colour of Robinson’s Summer Fruits Fruit & Barley – a sort of translucent bubblegum, raspberry pink colour. It’s one of the best coloured baths I’ve ever bathed in, and would 100% repurchase this bath bomb just for that bath water colour!

The bath bomb made the bath water feel quite moisturising, without being oily or greasy at all.

I also really enjoyed the scent of Rose Bombshell, and it made the bathroom smell really good for hours and hours after using the bath bomb!

The appearance of this bath bomb is really cute (although my photos definitely do not do it justice!) It’s a spherical pink bath bomb with cute rose patterns on the top of it. Absolutely adorable!

Again, this was a Valentine’s day exclusive, and I think this would definitely make for a romantic bath 🙂


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I really enjoyed this bath bomb! It was super cute, and I like me a super cute bath 🙂 If you’re not the sort of person who enjoys embracing your feminine side, you probably won’t be so keen on it. I however love embracing my girly princess side every once in a while!

Overall, I rate Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb a 4/5* rating. I know it’s silly, but those damn rose petals really put me off, but without them the bath water was fairly simple and its properties weren’t all that amazing. Based on the colour alone though, I’d definitely give Rose Bombshell a 5 star rating!

I’d definitely recommend grabbing one of these bath bombs should Lush release them again at some point (if you enjoy girly baths!) 🙂

Lush Snow Fairy Fun Review

This was a 2016 Christmas exclusive item! I hope you enjoy this review!


Snow Fairy Fun (200g):

Rating: 3/5*

Cons:

This was a Christmas Exclusive item from Lush for 2016. This means that it isn’t just readily available, and may not even return for Christmas at Lush this year. If you happen to get your hands on one of these Fun bars, and happen to LOVE it, you’re going to have a difficult time restocking on the stuff!

This stuff is kinda awkward to use. It doesn’t work badly as a shampoo, but it isn’t easy to use as a shampoo either. It doesn’t work badly as a body wash, but it isn’t the easiest thing to use as a body wash. It makes some nice bubbles in the bath, but isn’t the most easy product to break down to form bubbles. It is amazing how multiple purpose Snow Fairy Fun is, but it isn’t very easy to use for any one of those purposes! Basically, Snow Fairy Fun is a little bit difficult to use.

I left my Snow Fairy Fun on the side of my bath tub for the longest amount of time. Each time I’d grab a piece of product to use, a little more water would come into contact with the Fun bar. Over time, this caused the consistency of the Fun bar to become really sticky, moist and incredibly difficult to use fully. This is a product that becomes messy very quickly. You’ve been warned!

The scent of Snow Fairy Fun is identical to the smell of bubblegum. It is funny, because I have never related the scent of Snow Fairy shower gel or Snow Fairy body conditioner to having a bubblegum scent, but the Fun bar definitely does! A super sickly, sweet, traditional bubblegum scent. If you don’t like the sweet scent of bubblegum, this product isn’t the one for you!

Not only was this product not the easiest thing to use in the world, it also wasn’t the most effective. It was sort of an all-round meh product.

This Fun bar comes with some cute paper wings and a wand, so that you can use the Fun bar like modelling clay and make yourself a little Snow Fairy. If however, you do not create a model with your Fun bar right away and instead leave the paper pieces wrapped around the bar as you use it, over time the paper pieces will become quite mushy and sort of meld with the bar itself. Basically, the paper wings and wand becomes a part of the Fun bar itself. If this sounds kinda annoying to you then perhaps this isn’t the Fun bar for you!

I eventually potted my Fun into an old black pot from Lush. While in this pot, the Fun bar sometimes would separate, and there would be a layer of watery oil on top of very thick, very dry Snow Fairy Fun. This is because by the time I potted my Fun bar, it was already more of a very thick liquid rather than a solid. I can’t think of anything to compare the consistency to! Either way, it was very difficult to mix the Fun bar back up into a more usable consistency when this would happen.

If I hadn’t moved the Fun bar into a black pot, the product would have leaked out of its plastic wrapper and all over the side of my bath tub. It was quite a hassle to put my Fun bar into a black pot once the product had already become really sticky and moist!


Pros:

I mostly used Snow Fairy Fun to shave with. It worked just fine to do this with – not perfectly, but just fine. If you are on the hunt for a new shaving cream, maybe this Fun bar would work for you!

I bought this Fun bar during the Boxing Day sales, and only used it up Sunday 8th May. That’s 4-5 months worth of using this product – and I did use it quite frequently! This is a very long lasting product.

The concept, colours and scent of Snow Fairy Fun are really cute! I mean, it’s called Snow Fairy, smells like bubblegum, is pink, white and gold and comes with a set of wings and a wand so that you can build your own Snow Fairy. How cute is that?! This is the type of product that would be absolutely perfect as a gift for a little girly girl – or for any lady who has an inner little girly girl!

Again, this Fun bar is incredibly multi-purpose. You can use it to shampoo your hair, wash your entire body, provide yourself with a nice bubbly bubble bath to bathe, can be used to play with in the bath as a bit of entertainment AND, as I discovered, can be used to shave with! One product that is designed to do practically everything. Everyone needs one of these in their home!

Snow Fairy Fun being so multi-purpose also makes it the perfect product to travel with – at least when it is still a dry product! I brought a different Fun bar with me to Turkey in the, and it was absolutely amazing!

This is a vegan, natural, handmade product from Lush 🙂


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I’m going to miss having a good ol’ Fun bar in the house. They are just so incredibly useful to have around! I haven’t quite got the nack of how best to store them yet though – I know that next time I’m definitely going to make a model before anything else, and then pot the product straight away. I just need to figure out how best to avoid introducing moisture into the product! Perhaps I could wrap most of the product up and put it away somewhere, and just have one segment in use at all times. I don’t know.

This specific Fun bar was quite nice – although the scent was definitely a bit too sweet for me. I also really wasn’t keen on the paper parts that came with this bar, and just found them to be a bit of a pain. I also don’t like that this is an exclusive product.

The concept of Snow Fairy Fun is brilliant though, and the product itself is a travelers best friend!

Overall, I’m going to rate Snow Fairy Fun a 3/5* rating. It was definitely mostly a good product – as I think all Fun bars are. I just wasn’t keen on the scent of it, and I wish they were a little easier to use and a bit more effective!

Lush Snow Fairy Body Conditioner Review

Hey guys! So this is another beautiful product I was able to purchase in the Boxing Day sale at Lush, using my £100 gift voucher that my amazing partner got me as a Christmas gift!

I hope you all enjoy this review!

(Sorry about the terrible quality of the photo below…)


Snow Fairy Body Conditioner (100g)

img_3476

Rating: 5/5*

Cons:

This moisturiser can make your hands feels reeeeeeeeeeeally nasty after you’re done applying the conditioner to everywhere you want on your body. Like, super gross! You really need to wash your hands after you are done after washing the body conditioner. This is a bit of a shame because I guess it means that you can’t moisturise your hands with it!

If you DON’T wash your hands after using it and touch your hair in any manner afterwards, I promise you, you’ll regret it! Prepare to have to wash your hair again sooner than usual… Especially if you have a fringe! Because of the transfer of product into my hair, even after very vigorously rinsing my hands in the bath after finishing with using the body conditioner, my hair looked quite greasy the morning after. I had to wash my fringe again less than a day after already having washed it!

Okay, so again with problems with the moisturisation factor of this product. After you’ve done using this product in the bath or shower, that bath/shower is going to be suuuuuuuuuuper slippery – very dangerous! Also, if you use the body conditioner on your feet while in the shower, and then stand up… I swear I felt like I was standing on ice sometimes, trying to ground myself to prevent myself from slipping over! This is quite a dangerous product.

Snow Fairy Body Conditioner is a very sweet product, and could very well not be to everyone’s liking.

Snow Fairy Body Conditioner is also very pink and sparkly, which makes it quite girly. Actually, the concept of the entire product is very girly – the name, the scent, the colour… This might not be one for the lads, although I’d not say that men shouldn’t try the product altogether! I know some men who absolutely adore Snow Fairy Shower Gel! In general though, this is more of a product directed toward females than males.

If you happen to LOVE this product, then I almost feel sorry for you. It is a Christmas Exclusive item at Lush, meaning it was only available for a couple of months during the Winter. It also means that, if you’re unlucky, it might not even return next Winter… If you happen to fall in love with this product, good luck trying to stock up on the stuff!

I found that this product ran out fairly quickly. I bought it on Boxing day and used up the last bit yesterday. Okay, so that’s 2 months and 2 days, which might seem like a long time for some people. But I didnt actually use the product THAT often – maybe around once every week or every other week. This isn’t tooooo bad, but I definitely used it up faster than other lotions I have received from Lush!

It takes quite a lot of product to truly moisturise your body using Snow Fariy Body Conditioner. I found that it would absorb into my skin almost instantly, so I’d keep re-applying the product until there was at least a tiny bit of noticeable surplus residue. I did this to ensure I was fully moisturised, and it would take quite a bit of product to do so!


Pros:

Despite all the cons listed above, I’m kinda in love with this product. The concept is just so adorable and girly, and definitely makes me feel that way too! It is an adorable, light, bubblegum pink colour with a sparkly blue-purple lustre sprinkled on the top of the product. It smells like straight up bubblegum, and is called Snow Fairy… Super girly!

The scent is gorgeous. It is different to Snow Fairy Shower Gel. The shower gel smells extremely sweet, almost like sugar itself. This body conditioner however smells a lot more subdued in terms of sweetness, although it is still very sweet. It smells quite creamy and buttery too, and even has a very slight muskiness to it. It is like comparing the scent of a sickly sweet hard boiled sweet to the icing on a doughnut. It is just creamier and less sugary smelling! I LOVE it!!! Good enough to eat!

This product was able to fully moisturise parched areas of my body that I wasn’t even aware were parched… After applying this product to certain areas of my body, I’d find it would disappear into my skin almost instantly. Once I had added enough for there to be a tiny bit of excess residue evident, those areas of my body would feel extremely nourished and supple.

I actually found that using this product after shaving prevented ingrown hairs and any shaving rash I could have expected after shaving in the past. Absolutely brilliant!

Snow Fairy Body Conditioner is mild enough to be fine to use on sensitive areas of skin on the body. Now my entire body can be super moisturised!

Everything is just easier to do when in the bath or shower. Using this product rather than a lotion meant that it was extremely easy to moisturise anywhere on my body without getting lotion on anything, and being able to rinse off any excess meant that I was able to feel clean and smooth rather than sticky and tacky. If moisturising is a bit of a chore for you, try a body conditioner from Lush. You will still need to take the time to moisturise, but it does make the process a little bit easier and more comfortable.

This product made bath time way more fun. I love taking baths, because it is the time where I get to use a whole bunch of my Lush products. I mostly used this product during my baths rather than showers, which also negated the danger of slipping over after applying the product to my feet! Definitely the perfect pamper companion!

I got this product for 50% off, and if it is available next Winter too, you’ll also be able to get it for 50% off if you are lucky in the Boxing Day sales!!! Absolute BARGAIN!!! The product literally cost £3.98, and even then, I was lucky enough to get it with a Gift card (so it actually cost myself nothing!)


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I loved this body conditioner. I know this was a super long review, and that’s because it is a very interesting product! It does take a little practice to perfect the application process of this product, but once you have the hang of it, this product is an absolute beauty.

I’m going to rate this product a 5/5* rating. As long as you’re CAREFUL in the shower and bath, and take precautions, I think this product is absolutely amazing. The only real downside to me is the fact that it is dangerous. It really isn’t difficult for me to imagine someone slipping in the shower after applying this to their feet, and cracking their head open… Just please be careful with these body conditioners guys, seriously!

1. If you choose to apply this product to your feel while in the shower, the remainder of your shower should be taken SITTING DOWN. DO NOT risk slipping over, seriously, it isn’t worth it.
2. Try to limit yourself to using this product only when taking a bath! This limits any risk sooooo much!
3. Make sure the shower or bath tub isn’t slippery once you’ve finished your shower/bath. You wouldn’t want to cause any future accidents…
4. I absolutely would not let children use this product by themselves if under the age of 16 in the shower. This might sound ridiculous, but at this age they are still their parent’s responsibility. I’d not risk a serious injury from occurring! Tell them to use it in the bath instead!

Thank you for reading! – Storm
