Review: Lush Cinders Bath Ballistic

This Cinders Bath Ballistic was in my recent Lush haul post. I believe that this is a Christmas limited edition one. It smells orange-y and cinnamon-ey so I get the Christmas connotations. 

It did do the usual fizzy fun thing that makes me squeal in childish glee but my excitement wore off pretty quickly. Because of the colour, I felt as if I was getting into a bath of pee. It also left my bath stained a delightful buttercup colour that I am going to have a great deal of fun cleaning off. 

The pop rocks did not work properly, it was like sitting on tiny, sharp stones. When I have a bath instead of a shower its because I really want to relax. Pain is not relaxing. It did smell very nice but didnt do anything magical to my skin. I did feel clean afterwards but water generally has that effect.

I adore Lush products. Usually. I am really disappointed with Cinders and I will not be repurchasing, I think I will stick with other Christmassy things that I actually love (Snow Fairy).
Have you tried this bath ballistic? Did you enjoy it more than I did (I hope so)?

  5. Aww too bad the pop rocks didn't work well! I love the bath bomb that is honey-scented, it's so soothing!
