I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas

This bath bomb is new this Christmas. It’s made in the Lush ‘Space Girl’ bath bomb scent.

(The 2020 Halloween shower gel is also the same scent. )

When i get my Christmas order that i buy from the website i’ll post my review here with bath pictures.

Bat Art

This Halloween we have a new bath bomb called Bat Art (a play on the term bath art). The scent of this bath bomb is the Lush ‘Junk’ perfume scent. I have a video of my thoughts on the Lush Junk perfume that i have. While it’s not my favorite scent, i’m certain this bath bomb is going to be awesome no matter what it’s scent is 😊.

When i receive the one i bought on the website i’ll review it here.

Lemon Days and Ginger Beer


Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Lemon Peel, Powdered Ginger, Perfume, Ginger Oil,  Mimosa Absolute, Red Mandarin Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Geranium Oil , Bergamot Oil, Gardenia Extract , Colour 19140.

Review: This ballistic was discontinued about as quickly as it came out. Loads of people liked it on the forum but I guess it just didn’t sell at all and was pulled a few months after introduction. It smells like the perfume Ginger, highly floral rose but it has a strong lemony top note also. I wouldn’t normally like this combo but Lush also includes Sandalwood, Mimosa (like is in 17 Cherry Tree Lane soap and Sakura ballistic) , and also some red mandarin oil. So while i don’t hate it, i don’t love it either. It’s quite strong when fresh and the red mandarin orange oil and sandalwood is covered up by the fresh ginger and lemon scent, but when this ballistic mellows a bit it’s lovely. It makes bright yellow water. 3 stars.

Lush Times 2004 Description: How about a jolly bathtime adventure with lashings of ginger and lemon? Drop into a pre-run bath for a refreshing ginger fizz and lemonade experience.

Waving Not Drowning

Ingredients: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Lavender Oil (Lavendula hybrida), Fennel Oil (Foeniculum vulgare), Cardamom Oil (Elettaria cardamomum), Ylang Ylang Oil (Cananga odorata), Perfume, D&C Violet No. 2.

Lush.a.Lot’s Review: This smaller ballistic (70g) is a long timer in the Lush product line. It remains just as popular as it was years ago. This is a small bomb but the scent is not small, it’s got a strong lavender scent with a wee bit of a fennel bite to it. This is a staple Lush item for me. When i need some relaxing WnD always does the job and it can be combined with many oither lush product which have a lavender scent: French Kiss bubble bar, Therapy message bar, Angels on Bare Skin, Dreamtime Bath Melt. If this was a regular sied ballistic it would probably be a four star ballistic for me.

Lush Times 2006 description: Can’t sleep? Won’t sleep? The Waving not Drowning’s essential oils give strength and courage to the weak and fatigued then dispatch you to the land of nod. Keep several in stock for emergencies, jet lag, and 3 a.m. insomnia cures.

How To Use: Fill bath tub and drop bomb into water. For those bath bombs containing flower petals or other surprises, wrap the bath bomb in a nylon before use. To make your experience even more memorable, combine a bath bomb with a bath melt.

Dinosaur Bombshell Egg

5 out of 5 star rating

This year Lush United Kingdom and Lush North America have released their yearly Dinosaur Egg, onky this year theyve made it into a bombshell type. The bombshells are Lush bath bombs that are two halves of different colored bombs that go together and usually have something inside. The last few Easter holidays what was inside of them was a fun bar shaped like a little green dinosaur. This year however, lush has a bubble bar inside that is shaped like a little green dinosaur.

Dinosaur Bombshell Egg

It’s scent is made the same this year with fruity grapefruit & bergamot oils as well as the sweet and yummy almond essential oil.

“If you’re looking for a Jurassic bath, the rapturous fizz and crackle of this Easter treat is a T-rrific choice! Grab your prehistoric surprise before you pop one or both bath bomb halves in the water and enjoy a legendary sherbert-scented soak. Inside you’ll find your own little dino bubble bar, ready to be crumbled under running water for an eruption of bubbles. A dino-mite encounter with grapefruit and popping candy is sure to provide roarsome refreshment.”

How to use: Use half of your egg at a time or throw the whole thing into a full bath to unleash a fizztacular display. The dinosaur inside can be crumbled under running water to create perfectly prehistoric bubbles.

I use the bubble bar after ive filled it half way and after the bath bomb has dissolved. I hold the bubble bar under the falling faucet water and watch as this creates bubbles in the water below in the tub.

How to store: Keep it in a cool, dry place until you’re ready to re-discover a Jurassic world of delights.

I love multi colored components of my bath goodies, because i like to combine colors to make other colors. For instance the blue half and yellow half combined make a pretty shade of green water.

I would recommend the Dinosaur bombshell egg. You can get three baths out of it if you use each component in seperate baths. 🙂

Temple of the Sky

5 out of 5 rating, for looks and scent.

See my 3 minute tub Demo Video below.

In addition to the new ‘‘Flight’ bath bomn, here is a review and a couple of shots of Lush ‘Temple of the Sky’ bath bomb, exclusive to the @lushjapan store in Harajuku and on the Uk website. Smells like oranges. Its made with lon and orange oil.

This is one of two favorites of mine out of the latest six new Japan/Uk Lush bath bombs. The other four dont have quite the oomph Temple of the Sky and Flight have in my opinion.

Finalky a decent orange Lush scent. The orange in this is nice and strong and lasts the wjole bath. Thats another thing about this Temple in the Sky bomb….it fizzes for a long luxurious time.

Flight

A Lush Harajuku bath bomb Made with the Yummy Mummy scent.

5 out of 5 rating.

See my 4 minute Tub Demo Video below.

Its the same scent as Lush ‘Yummy Mummy’ shower gel and ‘Roller’ bath bomb and body sprayit smells like sweet strawberry and oranges. See below for more ingredients.

I think the bath art this makes is some of the most stunning that Lush has ever made in a bath bomb. Purple, blue, green, yellow….WoW.

It also has light blue colored glitter which is rare to see in a lush bomb if you think about it.

It has little shiny pieces of red salt embedded into the top.

It ultimately creates a cobalt blue water.

Gorgeous!

Blazin Bad Zula

5 out of 5 rating

See my 4 minute Tub Demo Video of it below.

This is a bath bomb made after Mel. B from the spice girls. Its got a cheetah print it on it.

If yoy look close (as i show in my video) you can see that the black markings are glittery.

It smells so nice and yumny spicy. Reminds me of Lush Brave mouthwash tabs and Chris the Camel bath bomb. Like something good and spicy for desert.

Its made with cinnamon, black pepper and clove.

Its a slow, foamy fizzer, and it produces some great and unexpected bath art.

Its got gold in it, blue and purple and gold and purple glitter in the water.

It takes a long time to dissolve, which i like. Its relaxing to see it roll its little self all around my tub as you can see in my video.

The black didnt stick on my tub in any crazy way. Mostoy just the rin area was purple, but it quickly came off with a spray of tub cleaner and a paper towel. I would recommend this bomb.

Magic Rabbit bath bomb

5 out of 5 rating.

See my 3 minute Tub Demo Vidro below.

This bomb has paper ears. It’s Super fruity with Davana oil and Tonka bean oil.

It smells like peach, berries and vanilla to me.

This is a gorgeous bomb. So whimsical. Its a new bomb this Easter with a new shape. The black turns to a deep purple in the water. There is no sparkle in the water.

its a slow melty fizzer which i like bevause i can watch it for a long time as it fizzes in the tub. It crackles with popping candy as it dissolves in the tub.

The vivid red from the hat’s stripe is so striking against the purple. This is a wonderful bomb for bath art.

The water looks blackish purple after its all disdolved. It didnt stain my tub or anything. It was quite easy to simply rinse once with my shower spray. Just don’t hold it in your hand as it dissolves as it will stain your fingertip.

Im glad i bought two. I would highly recommend this bath bomb.

Here’s a video i recorded of it in the tub before i hopped in.

Love Locket Amazeball 2020

5 out of 5 rating

See my 2 minute tub demo video belo

This year Lush brought back the popular Valentine love locket bath bomb. However this year both the design and the scent are different.

This year lush designed the love locket in the new ‘Amazeball’ design, which is a hollowed out design filled with a bath bomb top, and miniature, multi colored bath bombs inside the hollowed out area.

Also, this year Lush made it in the popular ‘Yummy Mummy’ shower gel scent. Its a caremelly strawberry scent made with strawberry, orange oil, and tonka bean.

My favorite Lush exclusive ‘Roller’ bath bomb is in this scent too.

The Love Locket is a bit larger than regular lush bath bombs.

Primarily pink with blue accents, the tiny heart-shaped bath bombs inside are blue, yellow, green and pink.

The end result is a mauve colored, sparkly water that smells like strawberry.

“Don’t lock your love away, release it in a spectacle of strawberry-scented swirls. This amazeball is the key to a great bath, so unlock your heart’s true potential with a good soak in the tub. Full to the brim with tiny bath bomb hearts, you’re sure to be all a flutter thanks to uplifting orange and cosy tonka.

You’ll love this if you like:
– Super soaks, bright colours and a heart full of giddy joy.
 Strawberries and Cream bath bomb or  D’Fluff shaving soap.
– Treating yourself or the ones you care for to a big, blissful bath.

Benefits:
– Tonka absolute has a comforting sweet fragrance, adding a snuggly embrace of warmth to this strawberry-scented treat.
– The uplifting note of Brazilian orange oil adds a drop of sunshine to your bath, as well as boosting your mood.
– The addition of cornflour ensures that this bath bomb is extra softening for the skin.

How to use: Bust the lock off this amazeball by removing the stopper and shake as many of the little bath bombs into the tub as your heart desires, allowing them to tumble in and fizz away. Feel free to indulge with the whole thing at once, or keep the shell for another time. Why not put a love note inside for that special someone to find as they soak?”

Chris the Camel

5 out 5 rating

See my 3 minute Tub Demo Video below

This camel carries dates, just like he would in the middle east. Date syrup is one of the ingrdients in this yummy gingerbreadish, hot toddyish scented bath bomb for Christmas 2019.

Its got gold stars all over it which i love looking at as they float by in the water.

Chris looks remind me of a gingerbread cookie. I was surprised to see dark blue green and purple coming out of him in the water. What a beautiful and different color in a Lush bath bomb. I can totally appreciate that its such a different color for a Lush bath bomb.

As you can see in the video the three colors join to make an peridot colored water with golden sparkle. 😍

Snow Fairy Amazeball

5 out of 5 rating.

See my Tub Demo Video of it in action below.

This is the second bath bomb this Christmas that has the Snow Fairy scent. Its a bright, fruity, pink scent.

I understand the Snow Fairy scent has been changed only slightly this year to include lime oil. It doesnt change the scent that much in my ooinion, it just makes it a bit brighter.

This is one of four different ‘Amazeballs’ this Christmas: Fly Me To The Moon, Holly Golightly, Don’t Let the Bells End, and Snow Fairy.

Each has a different color and scent.

This Amazeball, like the others, can be used one of two ways. I show how in my demo video.

Its hollow, and there is colored powder inside the hollow part which is a mixture of bath bomb dust and bubble bar mixture.

In two of the four amazeballs i couldn’t make the powder shake out no matter how hard i shook it. So your mileage may vary.

Snow Fairy made gorgeous dark pink water, was strongly scented and made the water like silk. Sparkly water too, lightly not TOO sparkly.

Holly Golightly Amazeball

4 out of 5 rating.

See my tub demo video below.

This is one four different Christmas bath bombs this year which have a complwtely new design. Fly Me To The Moon, Snow Fairy, Don’t Let the Bells End and Holly Golightly.

They are hollowed out bath bombs filled with a powder mixture which is half bath bomb and have bubbly mixture.

You can use it one of two ways. I show in my video.

Holly Go Lightly has a green holly leaf top. And it has green powder in it and some large, light green crystals.

Its made in the same scent as the Christmas bath tablet called Cinnamon Orange, and the showee gel and bath bomb called ‘Hot Toddy’, as well as a bubble bar called Holly Golightly. Its got orange oil and cinnamon.

In two of the four different amazeballs the powder wouldnt come out no matter how hard i shook it. But in two of them it did come out. So your mileage may vary.

The scent was very faint in this Holly Golightly. I couldnt even tell what it smelled like. Pity because i love the Lush Hot Toddy scent.

It makes a medium green colored wayer and has green silver glitter in the water.

Elf Bomb Bomb

3 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo below.

This Christmas Lush has brought back three bomb bombs, only theyve been redesigned to be more sturdy. The top and bottom fit together like puzzle pieces, instead of the precarious round version from last year which toppled off and broke usually.

Im glad for the redesign.

Elf bomb bomb is the green one and is made with grapefruit, cinnamon and ginger. Its an odd combinatuon but it works well. Its the same quirky scent as jilted elf jelly and the elf on a shelf fun bar from past Christmases.

In my tub demo.i used the top half so you could see what it looked like. And then i used the bottom half. But one could easily use the second half for another bath on another day.

The bomb bombs are fast fizzers which dissolve quickly. Elf makes beautiful emerald green water.

I just wish the scent were stronger.

Jingle Bells

5 out of 5 rating

See my tub demo video below.

The Jingle Bells bath bomb is new for Christmas 2019.

It’s made with the ‘Milky Bar’ soap and Milky Bar bubble bar scent. The scent is made with patchouli and orange oil. Its a comforting scent, like a warm blanket or fresh sheets.

It looks like a silver christmas bell, and it makes a jingly sound as well due to some salt crystals inside.

Initially i thought it was just a white colored bomb which would make white water.

Boy was i wrong! Soon i began to see a stripe of blue peek out.

Soon i began to see stark red and deep blue swirl about from the bomb! So pretty. What a surprise.

The blue and red continued to come out and filled the tub with gorgeous color.

The scent is nice and strong. Perfuming my skin in its wonderful fragrance.

Soon the water started to turn purple as the two colors combined.

There is no sparkle nor glitter.

I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this bath bomb.

Snow Fairy bath bomb

4 out of 5 rating

See my 3 minute tub demo video below

This year Lush has two different bath bombs with the same ‘Snow Fairy’ name. One is this one and one is the Amazeball called Snow Fairy. Both have the same scent but are completely different. The other one not shown here is all pink, is hollow and has a gold star shaped cap on it.

Its no secret that Snow Fairy scent is not my favorite. However i couldnt resist the beauty of it. I will say that im loving this Snow Fairy bath bomb much better than last years messy, slimey Snow Fairy jelly bomb. Dont you?

I love the bi-colored look of the white and pink. And its no secret that im a sucker for glitter. The glittery blue on the snowflake part of this bomb is so pretty.

This is a bath bomb that rocks back and forth and moves all around the tub. Not a slow, melty foamy fizzer. I like the liveliness of its movement.

And the end result is glittery pink water with that sweet and fruity, sparkly scent.

I think those that love the snow fairy scent will absolutely love this bomb.

I’m not a huge snow fairy fan, but I really liked the bath bomb a lot.  I like it more than any of the other versions or styles of snow fairy bomb in the past.

Fireball

4 out of 5 rating. See my 2 minute tub demo below.

This is a beautifully designed bath bomb with vibrant yellow, orange and red colors. Looks just like a fireball! Its also got a bit of gold glitter on the red part.

This bomb was made with orange oil, ginger, and mustard powder so its nice and warming on a cool winter’s night.

It was madecin the popular Lush ‘Cinders’ scent

Its both a fast, noisy fizzer And a slow, quiet melty fizzer. Plus its got popping cansy for that ‘crackling cinders in a fireplace’ sound.

The scent is nice, medium strong. If the scent were stronger i woukd give this a 5 out of 5 rating.

The end result is a bright orange water with just a very small bit of gold glitter in the water. Its not what i would call glittery water.
