Lush April Haul

201804141936434852.jpg

Just like uploading a new post, it has also been quite a while since I last placed an order with Lush. In fact, I think it was when the Valentine’s day products launched way back in January! So I think it is safe for you to assume that I went a little mad, but not too over the top. I also tried to steer clear of the seasonal products, however I did pick up two Golden Egg bath bomb melts and a Cream Egg bubbleroon to try out.

In fact, Milky Bath bubble bar and Cream Egg bubbleroon were the only two bubble making products I purchased this time which was a little out of the usual as I have always preferred my bubble baths to my bath bombs if truth be told. Milky Bath bubble bar just smells so clean which I know may sound a little stupid seeing as it is bubble bath but it just hasn’t got that heavy sickly scent some bath products often have attached to them. Cream egg on the other hand has a heavy peppermint fragrance that is very uplifting and I recommend you pick one of these little bubbleroons up to try from your local Lush store before they disappear for good.

After falling in love with Butter Bear bath bomb at Christmas, I decided to grab a Butterball bath bomb which has the exact same scent and moisturising properties as its Christmas counterpart. This little bath bomb is quite the steal coming in at just under £3, and it pairs fantastically with the Milky Bath bubble bar mentioned above.

Whilst scrolling through the bath bomb section of Lush’s webpage, I came to the conclusion that it would be a crime not to add these two adorable products to my basket. Not only do they both look and smell amazing, they have also both produced beautiful bath art when I have used them in the past. Although if truth be told I have a suspicion that Rocket Science  will be a dud as every time I pick this little guy up he is so soft and crumbly, however he smells fantastic! Like those blueberry sour laces you used to be able to get from your corner shop as a kid which also (fun fact) used to be my favorite sweets ever! Yellow Submarine on the other hand is more topical and fruity fragrance rather than overly sweet. Some people say the scent of this bath bomb reminds them of lemon sherbet sweets but personally this reminds me of Malibu and pineapple juice, which yes may just indicate that I have a bit of an alcohol problem.

2018041447477745.jpg

Over and Over on the other hand actually reminds me of lemon sherbet’s as it has that sweet but almost sour citrus fragrance going on. The top orange layer is actually a coating of bath oil which made my skin feel lovely and soft when I last used this, and the bath art this product creates is mesmerizing as it rolls around spewing out vibrant yellow, orange and pink colours into the surrounding water. I know spewing isn’t the prettiest word to use here but trust me this bath bomb is amazing.

Guardians of the Forest. What can I say about this? It has a wonderful complex woody, slightly spicy fragrance going on. The first time I purchased this product I was taking a bit of a gamble if truth be told as I had never used products like Tramp or Grass and I wasn’t 100% sure I would be keen on this product at all but I fell in love instantly. It is however, a really difficult product to describe so I will firstly say it slightly reminds me of lord of misrule but less peppery, which is strange as I don’t think they have any ingredients similar at all, and secondly I would suggest trying this product out for yourself as it is so different to all the other citrus and sweet-smelling products you can typically find in store.

20180414312762253

Lastly I decided to grab two products from the bath oil section. I have no idea what a bath oil is really, I imagine it’s something you pop into the bath and it will melt due to the heat of the water? I’m not sure… but at £2.50 a pop I thought why not find out? I picked up Furze which smells beautiful and very earthy. It also slightly reminds me of, and it sounds weird, when you walk into a garden centre greenhouse on a warm summers day. I also decided to purchase Cloak of Invisibility obviously because of the Harry Potter reference, however I am not so sure if I am keen on the fragrance of this if truth be told but I am still looking forward to trying it out.

And that is that. Would you like to see some posts about these products similar to the ones I uploaded back in October with a brief summary of how these products perform in the water? If so let me know in the comments section below! Also let me know what products you are currently using and loving from Lush this month.

What is so wrong with being single in anyway?

Hello, I am back!

Sorry I have pretty much been MIA for the past few months. I wish I had some wonderful tall tale of some fantastic life I have been living, but unfortunately I will have to disappoint you as I kind of don’t. In fact, I have kind of spent the past few months trapped inside my own head and isolating myself away from the world which for any one who battles daily with crippling anxiety will know isn’t the best of ideas for your mental health.

It all started with a tiny health scare I had way back at the beginning of November and I had to attend all those appointments for that scare alone, which is okay I guess and it can’t be helped, but it also got to me that I didn’t have anyone close to turn to during that time period partner wise to console me, cos it was freaking terrifying. Then the Christmas period rocked up, which is so much fun but so stressful when you work in retail. It’s also super shit if you don’t have that special ‘someone’ to share all that christmas joy with… or so I kept being told.

Ironically, I really enjoyed Christmas alone. I didn’t have to run around or wait around for someone to appear, I spent a long time in the bath listening to music from the 40s, I spent boxing day curled up on the sofa under a blanket drinking (and not sharing) my bottle of prosecco whilst watching old black and white movies. But then it started. ‘Oh this time next year you might have found that special someone at last’, ‘I just want you to be happy and married and settled down’ and even worse, a wonderful friend of mine (no sarcasm I actually love her to bits) embarrassingly messaged the first boy I have liked in a LONG time all this weird .. weird stuff (trust me if you need to know one thing about me it is that I am not a ‘lovey dovey’ emotion sharing person, these walls are firmly up!) and that was that… Defensive mode kicked in, spiral to hell occurred.

This strange interest in my relationship status or therefore lack of it has been the topic of conversation with every person I know since. I mean, are you single? Do you experience this weird absolute shit show of a topic on an almost weekly basis? Cos its honestly starting to wear a bit thin for me like. In the past four months I have let it get to me so much I have decided to write this strange post and I have also at times cried myself to sleep. There’s nothing WORSE than being reminded constantly that you’re not wanted by another person or that your just quite frankly not good enough. I have been asked / told things like, my hair colour and tattoos are too intimidating, I don’t have a problem finding a man its the fact I can’t hold onto one, I act like a 10-year-old boy and should be more girly and grown up, I can’t live like a spinster. I’m 27… 27.

Like, what the actual…

So anyway, less ranting more positive. This past week I have sat back and looked at my life and I wrote a small list of things I would like to achieve by this time next year (which I totally recommend) and not once did it cross my mind to write on this list ‘to find a nice man and settle down’. If anything its the absolute opposite. So then I got thinking, as you do in the early hours of the morning when your meant to be asleep as you have work in 4 hours, and I realised in the past four months of me being upset and down for not ‘having a man’ I have never actually wanted to find one. Everytime a boy spoke to me or asked me out I would mimic the Homer Simpson backing into a bush to disappear gif. If truth be told, I am really content with where I am in life and I am very excited for what this next year holds and how I am going to grow as a person. If somebody finds me and wants to join me on my adventures* during that time period then okay cool, if not then okay cool.

Anyway I’m going to wrap this up as I am nearing 800 words on this strange pointless post. I will however say if you are also single and are experiencing any of the above then please know you are NOT alone and honestly just screw society. Enjoy being you and remember the words in image below!

Also!!! Now my head is firmly back into being the best me I can be mode (dinosaurs, games ’10 year old boy’ things and all) this means I will be trying to focus on this little part of the internet a bit more! I have even created a post schedule / timetable for the whole of April! Lets see if I can stick to it!

Origins Original Skin: Retexturizing Face Mask with Rose Clay

IMG_20180121_152909_494

Two weeks back I decided to run poll over on my Instagram stories and asked what product you guys wanted to see me feature in my next Sample Sundays post. It is safe to say that the Origins retexturizing mask with rose clay was the clear winner with a whopping 83% of the votes!

I decided with it being a face mask that I would give myself a week out from these mini reviews to see how well my skin reacted to this product, especially given that the sample size was generous enough to give me three applications with a small amount left for a fourth.

IMG_20171020_142412_360

So once again I got this sample in with my Estee Lauder Breast Cancer Campaign Beauty Box that I purchased and reviewed back in October and I was very excited to receive this product as I have only heard good things about the Origins skin care range. My first impression of this mask was that it seemed incredibly thick in texture when I first squeezed it out of its tube, however once applied to my skin it spread out quite thin and wasn’t relatively heavily like I have found some clay masks to be in the past. As it settled onto my skin for the first five minutes I could feel a cooling and almost tingling sensation but again this isn’t as intense as I often find some of these clay masks to be (looking at you The Body shop  Himalayan Charcoal mask).

Back when I uploaded my haul in October I said that this mask doesn’t smell floral like you would expect, however I was 100% wrong! Once applied to my face the rose / lavender like fragrance was quite potent, but as the mask dried the fragrance did began to mellow out and it reminded me greatly of one of Lush’s fresh face masks called Rosy Cheeks which unfortunately broke out my acne prone skin like crazy so I will admit I was a little worried about how my skin would react to the Origins mask.

Needless to say I was worried over absolutely nothing as per usual, and my skin was left looking radiant and glowing but not in a weird greasy way, in fact my skin looked mattified rather than shiny and also felt soft to the touch. I will however admit that my T-zone area did feel slightly tight but not as uncomfortable as it usually would after a heavy clay mask. Another thing I noticed after using this face mask was that the redness in my cheeks and around my chin area had reduced after the first use and my pores also dramatically reduced in size. Due to only having a sample size of this product I was unable to use it regularly so the redness soon re-appeared after a day or two, however I think if this was incorporated properly into my skin care routine this product might actually end up benefiting my skin in the long-term.

Now the important part, would I purchase the full-sized version of this face mask? The answer is Yes! Although it is quite pricey at £26.50 for an 100ml tube I must admit that in the small period of time I have used this product I have seen a difference in the appearance of my skin. However, you can also get the purify, hydrate and glow set priced at £15 which contains three 30ml face masks, one which is the rose clay mask featured here as well as two other best-selling masks from the Origins range.

Bumble and Bumble: prêt-à-powder

IMG_20180121_152909_494

Way back in October I ordered the Estee Lauder Breast Cancer Campaign Beauty Box which was bursting with samples from various beauty brands, one of which was the Bumble and Bumble prêt-à-powder . What is prêt-à-powder? According to the description on the front of the bottle it is ‘equal parts dry shampoo, style extender and volume in a pinch’. Now I will admit this product has pretty much just been floating around my room over the past four months along with many other dry shampoos that rarely see the light of day. Why? Because unfortunately I am one of those ‘crazy’ people who wash their hair everyday without fail, so dry shampoo has never really been needed. However, this week I have dyed my hair a sort of green / turquoise blue colour and if you have ever had experience with coloured hair you will know that washing it daily means the colour will last three days tops if your lucky.

IMG_20180201_202433_450

As I am sure you can imagine I’m struggling to adjust to washing my hair every other day instead of daily, so I am heavily relying on products such as this one to help keep my hair looking fresher for longer.

IMG_20180204_195037_552.jpg

So how do you use it? Well, I personally have been applying this powder to my roots where it absorbs any oil that is present and admittedly it does make my hair feel both fresh and clean. The powder is also incredibly light in texture which means it doesn’t weigh my hair down unlike some of the other dry shampoos I have used in the past. Once massaged into my roots the prêt-à-powder seems to vanish and is invisible in my hair which is great as some dry shampoos I have used in the past tend to leave a dusty chalk like residue after being applied and even brushed out. This product also managed to create a small amount of volume which was fantastic as my hair is quite thin and often becomes quite limp and lifeless throughout the day. The fragrance is also quite pleasant and smells floral / like clean linen, yet once applied to my hair I can no longer detect any scent.

However, I do kind of have an issue with how pricey this product is at £23 for a tiny 56g bottle. Yes you read that correct. Admittedly, a small amount of product does seem to go a long way (I still have over half my sample bottle left after a few uses) and it does do the job of three products rather than one. Will I end up investing  in this product once I run out? Honestly, I’m not so sure, especially seeing as I can get similar results from my Lush No Drought dry shampoo and a back combing brush for just under £5 for a similar sized bottle.

So yeah, if you have any recommendations for dry shampoo that keeps coloured hair looking fresh then please let me know in the comments below! Also I’m running a poll over on my Instagram this week where you can vote for what product I feature in next week’s sample sunday post.

Irregular Choice: Rosie with Love

Five days out of seven you will find me working in the ‘footwear industry’. I am not anything wonderful like a shoe designer or a brand representative (also known as the dream). No, I work in retail, out on the shop floor or on the front line as some would say. For the most  part I adore it. We stock many amazing cool and quirky high street brands, one of which is Irregular Choice.

I have been obsessed with Irregular Choice for well over a decade now. I used to spend my 30-minute lunch breaks in my local branch of Schuh gazing at their wall display full of these wonderful and unique heels covered in ice cream cones and little scottie dogs waiting for the day I could afford my very own pair. The one collection that caught my attention like no other was the Irregular Choice x London Collage of Fashion collection that was released back in 2011. Unfortunately the chances of coming across any of these styles released is like finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. So, imagine my absolute delight when I discovered that they were once again teaming up with Rosanna Gault to recreate these iconic designs.

cropped-img_20170505_210215_19766.jpg

I guess it is to nobody’s surprise that just a little over a year ago today I finally managed to bag my very own pair (in fact I bagged myself two pairs but we will leave that for a later date). A few months later I wore them for the first and only time out of the house, trudging around the woods to take the images featured here today. It’s safe to say I almost broke my ankle twice tottering up and down muddy hills and climbing rocks. So, if you are looking for sturdy pair of climbing boots please let me inform you that these are not the boots for you. If, however you are looking for a pair of boots that will get you noticed then look no further.

The Quest For Perfect Foundation: Dior Skin Forever Undercover

IMG_20180121_152909_494

I’m not sure about you, but I find myself forever searching for the perfect foundation. This is not an easy task as I have combination / oily acne prone skin as well as an incredibly pale skin tone. I am currently testing out the new Dior Skin Forever Undercover Foundation in the shade 012 porcelain and thought I would write-up a mini first impressions post seeing as I received a small sample pot after buying the full-sized version last week.

Dior

This foundation claims to have the ‘highest level of pigments’ found in Diors range ‘almost twice as many as the original Dior Skin Forever Fluid foundation’. This means that this is a full coverage foundation and I personally found that a small amount of this product went a long way. Upon applying it to my skin it instantly covered my flaws (redness and acne scars). I also felt that this was incredibly lightweight in comparison to other foundations I have used in the past, which was wonderful news especially considering I didn’t have to apply multiple layers to get a good coverage.

The Dior Undercover also leaves my skin with a matte finish but not in an overly cakey way which can sometimes happen with high coverage products. It is also water based which is fantastic as it doesn’t react with my oily t-zone and stays put throughout the day. This is another bonus as it claims to be long wearing and able to last up to 24 hours which I found to be sort of true, not that I wear my make up for 24 hours straight but I did discover that I didn’t need to touch up my make up as often as I  usually have to do when wearing other foundations.

However, I have also found that this foundation does begin to oxidize a few hours after being applied to my skin, and was slightly darker / more ‘orange’ then I would have liked.  So on that note if you were debating purchasing this product I would recommend getting it matched to your skin tone before buying.

And that is that. Let me know what foundation you are currently loving or if you have any recommendations! Also sorry for how many times I repeat the word ‘foundation’ throughout this post. Until next time!

Let The Good Times Roll Fresh Cleanser

IMG_20180121_152909_494.jpg

I think it is safe to assume that everybody has a draw full of products that they have received from various online orders that very rarely see the light of day. I know I have. In an attempt to use up the ridiculous amount of samples I have stashed away in my room, I have decided to write a small review for each one that will be uploaded on a Sunday. Sample Sundays! God aren’t I clever at this name game. Face mask Friday, Sample Sunday, whatever next? Anyway, hopefully this will get me into a routine to post more regularly as I know I am AWOL a lot of the time.

So first up!

IMG_20180121_153031_070.jpg

About two weeks back I received a small sample pot of ‘Let the good times Roll’ fresh cleanser from Lush. I won’t lie, this is a product I have never even looked at never mind contemplated buying, but I was quite excited about testing it out all the same. The first thing that hit me when I opened the little tester pot was the wonderful buttery caramel fragrance that smells good enough to eat. The second thing that I noticed was the colour and texture of the product both looked and felt a lot like raw cookie dough (I know, I refer to everything as food sorry).

So, what I have been doing is taking a small pea sized amount of this cleanser into the palm of my hand and adding a small amount of water to create a paste like consistency before applying the product to my face. This cleanser has a sort of gritty sand like texture that exfoliates any dead skin cells from my face as well as cleaning the dirt from my pores. Seeing as this is a little bit more harsh compared to the ultrabland cleanser I use daily, I have incorporated LTGTR into my nightly face time routine instead, and use this product roughly three times a week.

I have noticed that after using LTGTR my skin was feeling softer and looks brighter but not that horrible shiny clean sort of look a lot of exfoliators can cause. Also, the redness in my skin has calmed down since I have been using this product and my skin feels a lot smoother and less oily.

Due to the above results I have purchased the full-sized version of this product which costs £7.50 for an 100g pot, however considering the tester pot has lasted me two weeks I know that this pot will last me well over a month if not longer. Lush also state that this product is vegan meaning no animal products are used within it at all! Which is another bonus!

Have you tested out ‘Let The Good Times Roll’ face and body cleanser? If so what did you think of it? Let me know in the comments section below.

Lush Christmas Exclusives

Hello! Sorry I’ve been AWOL these past few months. Unfortunately a combination of both a busy work and personal life has left me with very little time to sit down and think of content ideas, never mind being able to actually get around to create, edit and eventually upload the ideas I originally had which kind of sucks. So I do apologise about this little bit of post-Christmas spam that will more than likely be a recurring theme throughout January.

I have decided to kick off my first post of 2018 by featuring the contents of my Lush Christmas exclusives order I received just over three weeks ago. A lot of this order was sent off to Santa for Little Legs Christmas box which also included a Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly and Plum Snow Bubble Bar.

IMG_20180104_143351_790 - Copy.jpg

I will admit, I did end up caving (despite being skint and on a ‘ban’) and grabbed myself two products that I just could not miss out on.  One of which was the iconic Yog Nog soap! When my order arrived at work, I pretty much spent 10 minutes walking around with this wonderful product under my nose as it has such a distinctive smell which I find overwhelmingly comforting. I can only assume it is due to the nutmeg found within the ingredients list which gives this soap a warming yet sweet scent which reminds me slightly of cinder toffee.

IMG_20180104_144510_587 - Copy.jpg

IMG_20180104_142707_194 - Copy.jpg

I will admit that Hot Toddy shower gel was a little bit of a disappointment at first as I was expecting a strong cinnamon scent similar to 93,000 miles, yet I was greeted by a more spicy sweet fragrance which I can only describe as a crossover between cola cube sweets and mulled wine. Once I got home though and used this in the shower I was instantly won over by the strong scent of cloves as well as the wonderful rich vibrant red colour of this product. I slightly regret only ordering one bottle of this uplifting shower gel and can only pray it makes a return in the not so distant future.

IMG_20180104_144141_450 - Copy

I will also admit that the only reason I picked up The Christmas Penguin bubble bar as pretty much because he looked a little bit cute and fit the Christmas theme. However, I wasn’t blown away with the ‘Bergamot and Sicilian lemon oils’ description as citrus seems to be such a recurring theme now with Lush and I was expecting a citrus punch to the face when this little guy arrived. However, to my surprise this little penguin seems to share a very similar scent to The Olive Branch shower gel but with a little bit more of a subtle sweetness to it. I also found that a small amount of this product creates a decent amount of bubbles which left my skin feeling incredibly moisturized after leaving the bath, which only Milky Bath and The Bearded Lady bubble bar have been able to do in the past.

IMG_20180104_143726_556 - Copy.jpg

Speaking of the Bearded Lady Bubble bar, Peeping Santa reminds me so much of that much missed product visually, yet scent wise this little guy couldn’t be anymore different if he tried. If you’re a fan of products such as Snow Fairy then I’m sure you will also be head over heels for this adorable little Santa who is from the same Yummy Mummy scent family that is usually popular around the spring time (or the D’Fluff shaving soap that is available all year around). I’m yet to find out how moisturizing or how many bubbles this little guy creates, but I can only assume that with the addition of both shea butter and cocoa butter included in the ingredients list, he won’t disappoint.

IMG_20180101_134919_673 - Copy.jpg

Last but not least, I also picked up these adorable Bombardino bath bombs. These little guys are quite small compared to your regular line bath bombs, however at £2.95 I decided to grab three and prayed they would smell wonderful. As always Lush didn’t disappoint and this slow fizzing bath bomb has a sweet vanilla fragrance, but not overpoweringly so like you find with Peeping Santa or as sickly sweet as Snow Fairy.

And that is that. I can’t believe that is the end of the Lush Christmas products for another year, but will admit that I have already placed an order online today for some of the upcoming Valentines Day range that I am very excited to receive and review. What items are on your wish list? or even better let me know what items you caved in and purchased from either the Christmas range or the Valentines Day range in the comments section below or on my Instagram.

A Lush Halloween: Twilight Zone

IMG_20171024_000554_316.jpg

Monsters Ball Bath Bomb

Last nights bath consisted of this adorable little cyclops monster who goes by the name of Monsters Ball. This bath bomb is back for a second year running and I have read wonderful reviews about how beautiful this bath bomb is, as well as how it is another product that is part of the Calacas scent family.

Upon hitting the water Monsters Ball instantly give off a striking display as the pastel pink ball rolled around the bath, before the royal blue innards begin to ooze from its core. This was an eye-catching colour contrast upon the water, yet I felt as if it created bath art similar to that of Lord of Misrule but in a weaker form, and unfortunately for me this bath bomb wasnt as spectacular as some of the other bath bombs from the Halloween collection.

IMG_20171024_191839_082

I will however say that once the royal blue and pastel pink colours mix together within the water, they create this deep majestic purple colouring which is similar to the Twilight shower gel. The amount of lustre contained within this bath bomb is mesmerizing and I found myself at times hypnotised by the glitter dancing around within the violet-coloured water. Also, the eye of Monsters Ball bath bomb, which consisted of cocoa butter, had melted from the heat and had released an oil into the bath water. This oil had left a white film over the top of the water which had formed into various swirls and shapes. It wasnt until I looked back at the photos after I had left the bath that I noticed a lot of  these shapes resembled ghost like figures. This made this bath experience even more spooky and memorable.

IMG_20171023_234804_356.jpg

Despite being fond of the Calacas fragrance from this bath bomb which admittedly did cling to my skin for a few hours, I can’t deny the fact that I personally found it a little weak in comparison to the Man on the Moon bubble bar. Also, despite the cocoa butter eye which is supposed to have moisturizing properties, I personally found that my skin felt very dry as well as tight after using this product.

So, crunch time. Would I buy Monsters Ball bath bomb again? I’m not actually sure. As hypnotizing and mesmerizing as the glitter laced bath water was, the fragrance was very faint in comparison to other products within the same scent family. That added with the fact that my skin didn’t feel moisturized after leaving the bath makes me feel as if this product isn’t suited to my skin needs. I would however suggest you try this bath bomb out so you can come to your own decision about this product, but it will not be a product I will be openly suggesting or pushing my friends and family into buying (like I do with ectoplasm jelly bomb).

A Lush Halloween: Hubble Bubble Toil and Trouble

IMG_20171022_235232_245

Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb

This wonderful little bath bomb may be my favourite product from the Halloween range which I admit has shocked me. With all the hype that surrounds Lord of Misrule and how much people harp on about it, I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did as I assumed it would be like the Halloween version of Snow Fairy.

I was drawn in by Lord of Misrule whilst looking at the ingredients list online, as it was described as a ‘mischievous bomb that features a spicy herbal blend of patchouli and black pepper oil.’ With one of my favourite Lush scents Karma also including Patchouli in its ingredients list I decided to give this bath bomb the benefit of the doubt and added one to my online order.

I wont lie, when it first arrived I was a little disappointed by how Lord of Misrule looked. Just this moss-green coloured bath bomb with a few speckles of pink dotted about. However, knowing not to judge a book by its cover, I popped this bath bomb into the tub one night and was bowled over by its spectacular bath art and the show it puts on.

IMG_20171022_235358_034.jpg

As soon as it touched the water it started slowly frothing away its green outer layer, before rolling around in the bath. After a few moments pink tones start to appear and at this point I could smell both the patchouli and black pepper fragrance escaping into the air. It was after this that the bath bomb becomes truly iconic in my opinion and I will admit nothing prepared me for the beautiful magenta pink colour Lord of Misrule spews out or the sound of popping candy crackling away in the background, like a witches cauldron bubbling over creating the best bath art I have ever seen from a bath product to date.

IMG_20171022_235033_362.jpg

IMG_20171022_234913_920.jpg

The water ended up going a wonderful crimson red colour with a faint silver lustre. Also, the spicy, warm scent hung around for a long time, and clung to my skin for quite a while after leaving the bath.

Now the important part. Would I buy this bath bomb again. Hell Yes. After my experience with it I can now say that I 100% understand why this bath bomb is a cult favourite due to both the way it performs in the water and for how wonderful the fragrance is. This is going to be one of the few bath bombs I will be stocking up on this season and allowing myself to stash away to use throughout the year.
