Lush Times magazine: Every Christmas needs a cracker! Crackersnap is a new, cheery, lemongrass Bath Bomb that ‘cracks’ wide open in your tub, turning the water bright green and revealing a few extra treats – just like a real Christmas cracker! Pop on your party hat, tell yourself a joke and round up that crocodile for future bathing fun times.

Review:  This has the wonderful “Avobath” scent, with lotsof lemongrass and bergamot. It makes popping sounds as it dissolves.  They were fragile via mail order but then Lush started putting them in little plastic cases and that’s why mine was not broken when it arrived all the way from England.

Here’s a demo i recorded of the Crackersnap bath bomb in the tub.




Lush Times: The Avobath is one of those ballistics which gets evening people going in the morning, when they would much rather be asleep, so imagine the effect a HUGE one will have. This is an amazingly refreshing Ballistic that smells of stimulating lemongrass. Take a good sniff before you throw it into the bath to revive a sleepy brain. If you absolutely have to get up early and still function as a normal human being, then you need an Avobath a day.

Review: Great medium strong tangy lime scent. I’ve heard people say (and I agree) that Avobath smells like “Fruit Loops” cereal a bit. It’s also more moisturizing than most ballistics because of the avoacado oils in it. It’s also a good morning ballistic because of the invigorating aroma of sweet lime. I think this should be a staple in everyone’s Lush ballistic stash. It’s a good one to give to guys too as it’s a gender neutral scent. I usually have Avobath by itself as it stands up on it’s own. Avobath makes the bath water a lovely hard to find color of medium green.

Retro Notes: I do love the combination of B Never’s “Serendipity Phyto Foam” (which is herby, lavender-y and also has lime) with Avobath ballistic. Also if you’ve ever been afraid to try Lush’s “Deep Forest Atmosphere” ballistic, combine it with an “Avobath”, it smells great together.

Notes 2015;  Lush has since made Avoshower shower gel, and Avowash shower gel.  Sometimes i use a squirt of avowash shower gel to make a bath foam and then i have an avobath bath bomb, and the water has a light shimmer of gold in it.  Lush made a giant Avobath bath bomb called “AvoBigBath”.

Lush Times 2006 description: The Avobath (try saying it quickly) is a morning Bath Ballistic, scented with refreshing lemongrass, uplifting bergamot and stabilizing rosewood; just what you need to get you ready to face the world with your head held high. (It’s a bit glittery but not wildly so; you should be able to get away with this one on a work day. Try it at the weekend first if got a really straight boss.) Organic avocado (hence the name) and olive oil moisturize your skin as you enjoy your morning bathe, inhaling the lovely, fresh scent and splashing about in the bright green water.
