Lush Reindeer Rock Soap Review

This is for the new design of the Reindeer Rock soap from the exclusive Christmas range in 2016. I only just used up this soap a little while ago – here is my review of the product!


Lush Reindeer Rock Soap

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This soap doesn’t smell like anything incredible. It sort of smells slightly sweet and tangy, very floral, fresh and citrusy. Mostly floral and citrusy. It doesn’t have a bad scent, it just isn’t anything absolutely amazing in my opinion!

You can’t buy a specific amount of this soap. It comes in one set size and shape, so if you wanted to try a sample or if you wanted to buy a bigger piece of the soap, you’d be out of luck! Steer clear of this soap if you enjoy picking the amount of soap you want to purchase!

This soap was a Christmas exclusive product from 2016. This means you can’t buy it in store anymore – and it may not even return next Christmas! If you do somehow get your hands on some of this soap, and happen to really love it, you’re going to have a difficult time stocking up on the stuff!

Back to the scent – it wasn’t very Christmasy at all. The scent is more of a Spring/Summer scent to me!

This soap has quite a Christmasy name and also has quite a Christmasy appearance. This is a con, because it means that it may feel strange to use this soap during other times of the year. The scent and the appearance of this soap just do not go well together in my opinion!

I found this soap to be drying on my hands. Not extremely so, but I did notice a tiny little bit of dry skin on a couple of different days when I had been using Reindeer Rock as my hand soap.


Pros:

This soap looks absolutely gorgeous! It is in the shape of a stone, and is a gorgeous vibrant blue colour. It also has a caveman-style reindeer engraved into the top of it, which is coloured with golden lustre. The main blue soap itself also has golden lustre running all the way through it, which looks absolutely stunning.

Reindeer Rock soap lathers up wonderfully, and stays in tact pretty well. It only started breaking up once there was hardly any soap left at all, and it lathered up well fairly consistently.

I think the smell is quite pleasant. Again, not amazing, but it definitely is nice and entirely unoffensive.

The colour of the soap stays until the soap is completely gone. This, I have found, is quite rare with a Lush soap! The colour does fade, but it is definitely still a bright blue colour until its last use.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, me and my partner really enjoyed using this soap. It is probably the best lathering soap I have used from Lush to this day, stays together better than any Lush soap I have used to this day, and also retains its colour better than any Lush soap I have used to this day.

It wasn’t perfect though – but it definitely was a pleasure to use!

Overall, I’m going to rate this soap a 4/5* rating. If the scent was more down my alley, it would have been a 5* rating!

Lush Golden Handshake Hot Hand Mask Review

Golden Handshake Hot Hand Mask:

Rating: 2/5*

Cons:

Messy: This hand mask is insanely messy. It is really waxy in texture once is starts to dry, and dripped all over my lovely dressing gown while I was using it! I’m hoping it will wash out in the washing machine, but I’m not certain whether it will. It is messy because you are supposed to put your hands in a bowl full of the melted mask and massage the mask into your hands for 15 minutes. You then have to go to a sink to rinse the mask off. I think that unless I had literally used the mask at the sink or whilst in the bath, I couldn’t have avoided making a mess! If this sounds like a hassle to you, then don’t get it!

Inconvenient: While this mask is on your hands, doing anything is pretty much impossible. It might sound like a doddle – it’s just 15 minutes, right? If you get an itch on any part of your body, you will instantly have gooey, waxy residue left behind in that spot. Lovely. If you need to answer the door, well, you’re screwed! What if your phone rings of if you urgently need to respond to a message? No can do! Pretty much anything and everything is impossible to do with this hand mask on. Even just using my hands to remove the bowl of hand mask from my lap when I went to rinse the mask off, was a hassle. Christ, even turning the tap on was a nightmare! Again, this product is SUPER MESSY!!!

Texture and Consistency: The fact that this mask dries sort of waxy is annoying. It is really difficult to remove from anything it gets onto, and if you want to save the mask in the fridge for a while, some waxy residue will be left behind on the bowl it is in too (also not the easiest or most pleasant to wash off!) Where do you rinse out a bowl of hot hand mask anyways? In the kitchen sink – doesn’t really seem appropriate. The bath seemed most appropriate to me, although now the mask has just helped clog up the bath’s drain, and has also left a gross, waxy, dangerous (slippery) hand mask residue behind on the bottom of the bath! THIS PRODUCT IS SUCH A PAIN!!!

Doesn’t Keep: Okay, so after using the mask, you will find there is this a huge amount of product left behind in the bowl you used. I wanted to save this in the fridge, so that I could re-use it at a later date. Some time passed (okay, maybe it was a few weeks but still!) and the bowl of hand mask literally had mould growing on it. It was really nasty. I didn’t re-use it sooner because, well, my first experience with using the stuff was so terrible. Still, this definitely doesn’t last as long as any other Lush product I have used before. If you want something you can re-use over a long period of time, this isn’t the one for you!

Scent: The smell to me wasn’t pleasant at all. It smelled pretty gross actually, almost like the smell of hair dye or something – perhaps with a slightly buttery, slight citrus scent to it. I’m not sure why this is, but it definitely didn’t smell great.

Time Consuming: This mask took ages to melt, and was a very boring process. You are supposed to stir it continuously, until the mask develops, thickens and becomes a “dreamy, creamy lotion.” For it to achieve this state, it took at LEAST 15 minutes (somewhere between 15 and 30 minutes.) I had the TV on so this wasn’t so horrid, but it was tedious. This was with using boiling water. At least it taking so long to develop gave the mask time to cool down! If you don’t have a lot of time on your hands, this isn’t a product for you!

Very Hot!: The only bowl I had that was an appropriate size to fit BOTH MY HANDS in comfortably was a metal bowl. Since I had to use boiling water in order for this mask to actually melt, this of course made the bowl itself very hot to the touch. It was quite difficult to move around – and I’d imagine it wouldn’t be much better if the bowl were made of glass! If you don’t want to risk burning yourself, don’t try this mask!

Drying: This mask didn’t even make my hands soft or moisturised. I’m not even kidding – I’m pretty sure my hands ended up DRIER than they were before I used the mask on them!!! I’m not even sure how this is the case – perhaps it is because of the mask being warm, although it is more likely because of the main ingredient of the mask being “Cetearyl Alcohol & Sodium Lauryl Sulfate,” an alcohol and SLS mixture (both known to be quite drying on the skin!) These are also the ingredients that make the product waxy in consistency. The drying effect was probably due to serveral of the ingredients combined together to be honest, as it isn’t just made of butters and oils (the mask also contains citric acid, perfume, sodium bicarbonate…) If you want something that is really going to do your hands some good, don’t try this hand mask!

Stressful: I didn’t really find this mask to even be relaxing – as a pamper session should be. To me, it was actually rather stressful, because it got everywhere and was a nuisance to clean up. I also didn’t anticipate the entire process taking quite so long, so I became rather stressed and antsy while using it! This definitely isn’t the most calming or relaxing of products that Lush do make!


Pros:

Only Hand Mask: This is the only hand mask that Lush do, so if you want to try a hand mask from Lush, give it a go!

Looks Cute: This hand mask does look insanely cute! It comes in a solid form, and is in the shape of a little hand, covered in golden lustre. It is attached to a wooden stick, and has a little piece of cardboard wrapped around it that has all the ingredients and instructions written on it. If you like cute looking products, maybe this is one for your collection!

Cozy: This hand mask did feel nice and comfortable on the skin whilst actually using it. It was really warm and comforting!

Provides Time to Yourself: If you want to find a way to slow down and to just have some time to yourself, then this is definitely a good product for that purpose. It takes a long time to use, and requires a lot of patience. Using this product will force you to have a good hour or so to yourself (once you include all the preparations and after cleanup!) Try this hand mask if you need some time to wind down!

Novel: This is quite a novel product – you could very well find the novelty of it to be fun!

A Lush Product!: Lush is a fantastic company, and honestly, I think every one of their products (that are vegan) are worth trying at least once! Some people really love this hand mask, so it is worth a try!


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I honestly really didn’t enjoy this hand mask. It is a real shame, because it is currently the only hand mask that Lush do! I really hope they make some new ones, because this being the only hand mask they do means that regardless of my rating, it is still my favourite Lush hand mask!

I think this hand mask was a right pain to use. It was just extremely messy, inconvenient, time consuming – and didn’t even work!

I’m going to have to rate this product a 2/5* rating, and that is me being very generous. Honestly, the only reason why I’m giving it 2 stars is because it is a really adorable product! I could imagine that it would look really cute in a glass jar, as a piece of decoration in a bathroom, along with some reusable bubble bars and hair masks! Like a cute jar of lollipops or flowers 🙂 It was also really warm and cozy to use!

There is a lot of room for improvement from this product – it certainly shouldn’t be drying on the hands, and I think it would be better if it were like the face and foot masks that Lush do, and didn’t need to be melted. The scent could also definitely be improved upon!

Lush Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar Review

Yes, I know. This was a Halloween product for last year, and it is now spring of the following year. I know this review is late. I know I took a long time to use up this product. I know, I know. But hey, at least I used it up, right? Hopefully this review will help someone out when next Halloween range comes about!

I received this as part of a lovely, incredibly gift from my partner on Halloween. I hope you enjoy this review!


Sparkly Pumpkin Bubble Bar:

Rating: 4/5*

IMG_3988 (2)

Cons:

This is a Halloween exclusive product, so if you find that you love it, you might have a lot of trouble repurchasing it! It might not even come back next Halloween…

This bubble bar is GLITTERY. When you hold the bubble bar, you will 100% be left with golden lustre on your fingers. When you put the bubble bar down, the surface it has been placed on will 100% have golden lustre on it afterwards. If you’re really not a fan of glitter, stay away!

The scent of this product is quite smokey , woodsy, spicy, dry and musky. If those aren’t the sort of scents you are into then again, steer away from this guy!

The cinnamon stick sticking out the top of this bubble bar will be left in your bath tub. I forgot that this cinnamon stick was left in my bath tub, so I just pulled the plug out at the end of my bath as per usual, and that was that. Once I remembered about the cinnamon stick later on, I looked in the tub, only to find that the stick had… disappeared… I think it went straight down the plug hole. I really highly doubt this did my drain any good whatsoever! Be careful!

I didn’t find there to be too much pigmentation to this bubble bar – although that could be due to getting 3 uses out of it.


Pros:

I got three baths out of this guy. Yep, 3. And easily at that – if I had any less baths with this bubble bar then I would have felt as though I was being wasteful! This bubble bar produces bubbles SO EASILY!!! Each of my 3 baths with this bubble bar were covered in a thick layer of bubbles. Here are images of each bath:

Bath 1 (bath product, bath before turning on jets, bath after turning on jets:)

Bath 2 (bath product, bath before turning on jets, bath after turning on jets:)

Bath 3 (bath before turning on jets, bath after turning on jets:)

The bubbles this bubble bar creates are incredibly creamy and frothy.

A bath with this bubble bar is extremely warming and cozy.

The concept of this bubble bar is brilliant. It truly looks like a miniature pumpkin covered in golden glitter!

I really enjoyed the scent of this bubble bar. Zesty yet spicy – very up my alley!

I found this bubble bar to definitely be somewhat moisturising. Not extremely so, but somewhat for sure.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I think this was a lovely bubble bar, I seriously do. I think it could do with more pigmentation, with being more moisturising and with having a slightly better scent, but it really was rather lovely!

I’m going to rate this guy a 4/5* rating. It was absolutely brilliant, but I still feel I can find a better bubble bar out there that will absolutely blow my socks off!

I hope you enjoyed my review! 🙂

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

Lush Old Father Time Hand And Body Soap Review

This isn’t a soap I got recently – in fact, I picked it up in the Boxing Day sale back in 2015! I finally used my piece all up, and here is my review for it 🙂


Old Father Time Hand And Body Soap:

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This soap doesn’t have a sweet smell to it. In fact, the scent reminds me almost of… dust? It has a dusty, old book, tree, woodsy, incencey sort of scent to it – if that makes any sense at all! It is a very difficult scent to describe… it sort of smells like a nice smelling hippie’s den haha! Anyway, it isn’t a sweet smell in the slightest really, so if you don’t like more earthy, smokey scents, this one isn’t going to be for you at all!

The lather of this soap is, well, a murky brown-orange-red colour. This isn’t a massive deal, but it does take a bit of getting used to. It definitely does make the soap messier than some of the others that I’ve used, because it really is so pigmented. I know this soap will definitely be too messy for some!

Another problem with the colour of the lather, and of the soap overall, is that it looks almost gorey to me. It is a deep maroon colour, and honestly, when the soap is sitting in its soap dish with browny red coloured soap water dripping down the sides of the sink… I dunno, maybe I’m really weird, but nonetheless I found the appearance of this soap quite creepy – almost like having a chunk of liver in my soap dish!

This was a Christmas Exclusive soap in 2015 – and didn’t even return for 2016! If you happen to really enjoy this soap, you could very well find that you have a difficult time trying to stock up on the stuff I’m afraid!

The scent of Old Father Time definitely fades over time. The scent of my piece of this soap was much milder toward the end of its days. The scent remaining was more of a general soap scent, with just a slight hint of its original scent still present.


Pros:

The design of this soap is SO GORGEOUS! This soap has golden cogs going through it and wow, it is just absolutely stunning. The orangey-golden cogs are absolutely full of lustre and are more creamy and soft than the rest of the soap. Extremely lovely to use!

This soap overall was surprisingly moisturising. I don’t know why, but when I first received this soap I assumed it wouldn’t be very moisturing at all, but it really was. Perhaps not quite AS moisturising as some other soaps but it was pretty damn good! Definitely not a drying soap at least.

The scent is definitely one that both all genders can enjoy. My partner loved this soap and I think it was quite a nice one too. When I asked him if there was anything he would want to add to my review of the soap, he said: “I like how it got softer the more you worked it. I like how creamy it was. It was really nice!” 🙂


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, this soap was mostly a pleasure to use. It was definitely a fun experience, it is very different to any other Lush soap I have used thus far!

I am going to rate Old Father Time a 4/5* rating. Honestly, it reminding me of a chunk of liver or… something… really put me off! I would have given it less stars, but how much my partner enjoyed it sort of nudged it up somewhat!

Lush Golden Wonder Bath Bomb Review

I was lucky enough to be given a £100 Lush gift card for Christmas from my partner so of course, I spent it on the Boxing Day sale! I wasn’t super organised though and failed to picture everything and upload a “What I got for Christmas” blog post, but I am going to be making a post on my current Lush stash very soon.

At the Lush store we went to on Boxing Day, all the Golden Wonder Bath Bombs were sold out. Luckily I brought my partner along with me, because while I was grabbing the individual bath bombs, he went and grabbed me the Golden Wonder gift set which of course, includes the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb! I was so chuffed 🙂

I wish I were more organised – I’ve gotten such lovely things over Christmas and also did over my Birthday, and I would have loved to have blogged about them!

Anyway, here is my review of the Golden Wonder Bath Bomb 🙂 I hope you enjoy!

(I’m sorry in advanced for the terrible quality of the photos I have uploaded. My laptop has gone for repair so the only way I could edit photos and transfer the edited copies onto wordpress was through messenger, which really has killed the quality!)


Golden Wonder Bath Bomb

Rating: 4/5*

Cons:

This is a Christmas Exclusive item so, if you happen to absolutely love it, you’re going to have a tough time getting your hands on it during the rest of the year!

The scent… Okay, I get that it shares its scent with Celebrate Lotion etc, but honestly? It was just such a weak scent, and didn’t linger for me at all. If you are expecting a strong scent from this one then you are going to be very disappointed.

It is SO glittery! Anytime I held this bath bomb before using it, my finger tips would be absolutely coated in golden lustre. It was a bit of a pain!

Okay so this is a weird con but hey, maybe I’m a bit of a weird girl. The colour bothered me. Not because of the colour itself, but to me the bath water genuinely looked like a sea or ocean, and that sort of terrified me. I’m really scared of sharks, so sitting in a bath of water that makes me feel as though I’m in the middle of a tropical sea or ocean somewhere was sort of unsettling. It was especially creepy because I was the only one awake at the time and it was in the early hours of the morning (maybe around 3am…) Maybe if you have a similar sort of fear, you should steer away from Golden Wonder!

This bath bomb was very residue-y. I wish I had rinsed off in the shower after taking a bath with this bath bomb but honestly, my fear of sharks just sort of caused me to shoot out the bathroom ASAP! I was really freaked out! Anyway, the gold stars that are released by this bath bomb were sort of buttery, and also left residue around the bath tub. Basically, some additional rinsing of both the bath and yourself will be required after bathing with Golden Wonder.

The rattle or whatever the surprise is meant to be in the center…? I didn’t hear anything at all when I shook the bath bomb around.


Pros:

I think this bath bomb looks absolutely gorgeous! It is a beautiful yellow-golden package with a lovely cream coloured big bow on the top. It is also really big! It definitely looks very special for a bath bomb.

This bath bomb fizzed away quite nicely. It was a fast-medium fizzer.

Almost straight after the bath bomb began fizzing away, the only part of the bath bomb that was visible above the water was the cream coloured bow, which I thought was adorable! It looked really cute just seeing a cream bow travelling around the bath as it fizzed away.

The colours of this bath bomb are lovely. Beautiful golden yellows, creams, blues, pinks… Super pretty!

This bath bomb made the bath water genuinely look like a tropical sea/ocean somewhere. If that sounds like your kinda thing, absolutely go for it!

The scent was nice and fresh.

The golden stars released were really cute!

I found this bath to be somewhat moisturising.


Overall Conclusion:

Overall, I didn’t like this bath bomb all that much… The colour of the water sort of scared me, the bath bomb left behind residue, the scent was very weak… It’s a real shame, because I think that the bath bomb looked so beautiful before putting it in the bath, and I really think this is one that has a lot of potential. Perhaps I just shouldn’t have used it in the middle of night to prevent my mind from wondering too much.

Overall, I’m going to rate this bath bomb a 4/5* BECAUSE my partner found it for me in the store and it was a gift from him, and I definitely think it is overall a really nice bath bomb! I think I just used it at a rubbish time of the day to be honest, otherwise I’m sure I would have had a better experience with it. Although, the scent was definitely somewhat of a let down!

Lush The Experimenter Bath Bomb Review

I was lucky enough to have obtained this bath bomb as part of a gift set that I was given by my partner for my birthday! That was back in October, and I have only just found the chance to use it. Here is my review for The Experimenter!


The Experimenter Bath Bomb:

Rating:

Cons: 3/5*

The bath water ends up a sort of murky grey colour. If you was after bright bath water, steer away from The Experimenter!

This has a sort of slightly sweet, spicy, smoky and earthy scent, and definitely is more of the last 3. If you don’t like quite incensey or musky scents of any kind, steer away! The scent actually reminded me a lot of the scent of the Pumpkin bath bomb from the halloween range last year.

For me, The Experimenter performed quite peculiarly in my bath. It sank to the bottom straight away, and once it had finished fizzing and I got into the bath, there was a little pile of bath bomb dust at the bottom of the bath where it had sank. It also didn’t really make much of a display on the surface of the bath. If you are expecting a magnificent show from this bath bomb, you could very well be disappointed!

I don’t know if this has anything to do with the ingredients of this bath bomb or not, but I found it very difficult to get the bath water to be the right temperature. I had to keep adding more hot water, then more cold water etc. The reason I think it might have something to do with the ingredients of the bath bomb is because firstly, I don’t usually have this problem and secondly, I know when I’ve used Intergalactic in the past I had to add more hot water because of the cooling effects of the peppermint oil, so something similar could be happening with this bath bomb. It was quite annoying!

After draining the bath water, there will be loads of bath bomb powder, glitter, colourants and other residue left behind in the bath tub. This isn’t a huge problem but it is nice when the bath drains pretty much spotless after taking a bath!


Pros:

This bath bomb provides a very sparkly bath! It looks really lovely 🙂

Before putting the bath bomb in the bath and straight after doing so, wow. Just wow! This is such a colourful bath bomb and when it first hits the water, it makes such a beautiful circular rainbow, like a colour wheel!

I quite liked the sweet, spicy scent of this bath bomb – definitely my kinda thing!

This bath bomb is huge, so the bath water ends up feeling very rich in moisturising oils and lovely ingredients.

The scent will linger in hair for around a day, which is lovely!

This was part of a gift for my birthday and it was very lovely to receive! This bath bomb definitely makes for a brilliant and exciting gift 🙂

The name is pretty epic. It made me feel like a mad scientist or something when I used the bath bomb.


Overall Conclusion:

I liked this bath bomb a lot. It wasn’t one of my favourites, but it definitely was far from my least favourites too.

I’m going to rate this bath bomb a 3/5* rating. I know that seems sort of low, but the end colour of the bath water reminded me a bit of the colour of dirty laundry water or something… I don’t know. Either way, it was enough for me to just rate this product 3/5*.
