a nice surprise

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.

unfortuneally there is no Lush near the place I'm living (which is somewhere in the north of The Netherlands). I went to Lush once and I really liked it. I think the bath bomb you've used smells very nice! :-) Also I really like your video's :-) and lush hauls! :D

wish I had a bathtub...only have a shower, but no biggie...been trying out loads of Lush stuff for the first time this Dec!

And it's all thanks to you! You recommended Lush soooo well, I just had to try it...even though we don't have a store in Denmark - I just had to try it - ordered from the U.K. and when I got my first package (I ended up ordering twice) in the middle of Dec I was soooo exited.

Favorites so far: Rock Star!!!! Sweety Pie shower jelly;) and Ocean Salt;)

Check out my Love for Lush - inspired by YOU - blog post
