Great Balls of Bicarb // Lush

For my birthday my mum & dad bought me a fair amount of Lush goodies. I think they were so sick of me moaning "but all the other bloggers have so many!!!" like a spoilt little child. One of the things they bought me was this giant tube called The Great Balls Of Bicarb which made me laugh, great name choice! It's a tin tube that contains 5 different bath bombs. What's great about this as well is that I've only ever tried 2 of these bath bombs so I was looking forward to trying the others.

Avobath contains lemongrass and bergamont oils to pick you up, avocado and olive oil to tackle dry skin and lustre to leave your skin feeling "dazzling". This has a really fresh scent and is a bath bomb that I've not really heard a lot about. I like that it's hydrating, especially as we get into colder seasons.

Blackberry Bath Bomb is a lovely smelling bath bomb that isn't as sweet as I thought it would be. It has bergamot and frankincense oils to help you relax and induce a feeling of wellbeing. This sounds like the perfect bath bomb to use after a long, hard day at work or to end a stressful week (cause we all know Sunday is bath bomb and facemask day!).

Dragon's Egg uses citrus oils and jasmine to leave you feeling invigorated and refreshed. I've used this bath bomb before and I do love the smell of it. It transforms your bath into a lovely orange colour with lots of shimmer in it. Although this isn't one that states it helps dry skin, I did feel that it left my skin softer.

Honey Bee is the one I'm most excited to try as it uses honey, aloe vera and rhassoul clay to help cleanse and nourish skin. This smells heavenly and the ingredients in it sound perfect for my skin! The aloe vera will cool, honey hydrate and the clay cleanse (check out my alliteration) which sounds exactly what my skin needs! 

I feel like Sex Bomb is one of the first bath bombs I ever tried, just because I felt naughty buying something with that name and it was pink, obvs. It uses jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage to help get rid of tiredness and stress. The lush website says it "helps get you in the mood" but I have never had that urge after using this bath bomb! All I want to do after this is get into a freshly made bed and read a good book, not get all hot and sweaty (if you catch my drift).

I am really happy with this gift and I think it's a super good idea if you don't know what to get someone for their birthday or you know they love Lush but don't know what they love from it. You can never go wrong with a bath bomb right?! This set was £21.50 which works out at around £4 per bath bomb which is more than each individually, but you are paying for the packaging too. 

One word of warning to anyone who buys this for themselves or others, don't knock it over! I accidentally knocked mine over and 3 out of 5 bombs are now shattered!! I was so gutted because they won't have the same fizzy magic when I put the millions of different pieces into the bath. It was my clumsy fault but I now have an excuse to rebuy the bath bombs to see their full effects!

You can buy the set here or check out the Lush website for all individual bath bombs. What's your favourite Lush product?

Til' next time! XOXO
