Lush Cinders Bath Bomb

If you love everything Christmassy, then you will love this! Despite being smaller than your average bath bomb, it certainly packs a punch! 

The scent of this ballistic is Spicy, warm and soulful. I know those are not particularly scents but its what comes to my mind when describing this. There is quite a strong smell of cinnamon, almost the sort of smell that you get at German Christmas Markets in most city centres. Oh and I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only person who thought of freshly made gingerbread when they smelled this?

When dropped into the bath, it starts to fizz straight away, and due to the size, it does fizz down quite quickly. Lush do claim that this will make popping noises whilst fizzing away. I sat listening to the water and could hear a faint sound of popping, kind of like Rice Crispies, but I was hoping for something similar to an open fire. I know that's a bit expectation.

You can see the popping candy really clearly in this photo, which sort of makes it look slightly alien. I didn't notice any benefits to my skin after this bath, so I did need to apply quite a bit of moisturiser afterwards. It doesn't claim to soften your skin but it would have been nice to have this additional feature.

I did like this bath bomb. I wasn't in love with it, so I probably wouldn't repurchase it again. But overall, it was a fun bath, with a gorgeous scent.

Have you tried this bath bomb? 


  1. I've heard great things about this one! Too bad you didn't like it more :( I agree, I would love to see more moisturizing ingredients in their bath bombs! I always add a few drops of baby oil into my baths :)

    1. That's a good idea I never thought of that, thanks for tip xx
