Review: Lush Christmas - Cinders


This Bath Ballistic is also alot smaller than your average bath bomb, around the same size as the So White.
This one looks really pretty & i picked this up because 2 of the girls in there (who by the way, all get a massive box full to the brim of all the new stock to try and out...lucky) had said it was their favourite.
When you smell this, is does smell really christmassy, unlike So White which, lets face it, is more of a summery scent. Lush describes it as a Spicy, Soda scented Ballistic.
Lush also claim that when you pop this in your bath, it fizzes and crackles as it has popping candy in it.
Unfortunately, and very dissapointingly, nothing was popping or crackling.
I was listening to my bath water like a child listening to their rice krispies...
No snap, crackle or pop for me though.
Mine may well have been a dud, has anybody purchased this bath ballistic and heard crackling and popping?

I can live without the noises if im honest, that wasn't why i bought it, i really do love the autumny smell, and it really was a very powerful scent even after the Ballistic had fizzed away.
I didn't notice any benefits to my skin after this bath, which, it doesnt claim to do, but, it would have been nice :)

This retails for £1.95 (i like this price)

Overall, i think if you're after a genuinely nice, christmassy smelling bath product, this would be perfect. It did get me a little bit excited for christmas, just like apple and cinnamon candles do!

  10. I have been to lush once and picked up some awesome 13 soap. The one with oregano because I loved the idea it was cleansing but also the idea that it was KILLING my germs ha ha. All I remember about Lush is that I wanted to get a lot of products but I wanted to avoid the 12 employees in the small shop smothering me to buy their prods. They were like crack dealers. It was quite hilarious--of course this would not prevent me from going back, but I found it very humorous. Plus, the nearest Lush shop is about 35 minutes from my house..so it requires its own little trip.

    I also wish I was more of a bath person. I'm always in and out of the shower. Perhaps some of these bath bombs will give me an excuse to take it easy this holiday season.

    AND NO SNAP, CRACKLE, AND POP?! What a bummer for sure :(

  12. i was just about to review this one as well, because it didn't snap crackle or pop with me either. the girl that worked at the Lush store told me that they actually use pop rocks--but i didn't hear any popping. the color was kind of pretty, and the scent was nice though :)

  13. I love Christmas smells. Candles are my favourite way to get into the festive spirit, but this sounds good too.

  17. I am really loving these little LUSH reviews! :) The smell of this sounds so good!

    Richie Nickel said in his YT review of this that he cleaned one of the bits that is supposed to pop and put it in his mouth and said it just tasted like salt so the whole thing is just a gimmick, haha.
