Last night I took a long bath, and I decided to use my Cinders bath bomb from Lush. I have been saving this one for several reasons. First of all, the scent is completely captivating, all cinnamon and orange. Second of all, this bath bomb claims to make crackling noises as in dissolves just like the sound a fire would make on a cold night. So, naturally I saved it for a "rainy" day. It has been freezing and snowy for the last several days so I figured last night was the perfect night to use it.
As soon as my bath was filled with steamy water I plopped this baby in. Now, before I explain what happened next let me say that lush has two types of bath bombs. Some of them dissolve slowly, like the "So White" bath bomb. That one dissolved so slowly I was ready to get out before it was done. Unfortunately, they are not all like this. A few I have tried dissolve as soon as they hit the water, and before you know what's happening they are all used up. Cinders fell in the latter category, and I was quite disappointed. The worst part? No crackling :(
But then... luck changed! Before I knew it the crackling started, and I noticed the water had turned a nice orange color. The smell was amazing, and the crackling went on for longer than expected. I can still smell Cinders on my skin. Bottom Line? Yes, I would repurchase this one, but not to use on a night where I want to lay around in a bath for hours on end. This was a fun little bath bomb. I wish Lush made more stuff in this scent! $3.95.
