Lush Bombardino Bath Bomb
I don't often go for baths as I am more of a shower girl but ever since I've gotten into beauty, I've become more and more open to the idea of it. That plus a bunch of bath goodies from my sister and voilà I'm converted! The stuff she got me were all from the Christmas collection and I've only just gotten around to using them. Most of these will no longer be available but they often have equivalents in their permanent range and who knows they might bring out the same stuff again this year?
First off, can we just appreciate how cute this little thing is, it's impossible not to smile when you look at him! On the Lush website Bombardino is describe as: "This little fellow takes his inspiration from an apres ski drink traditionally made in the Italian Alps with eggnog, brandy and whipped cream. Our version of the Bombardino is just as rich and creamy, smelling like a lemon meringue pie. With added cocoa butter to soften your bath water, Bombardino will leave your skin feeling silky and soothed."
Once I dropped this in the bath, I noticed it wasn't as fizzy as I thought it would be probably because I have had it for a while or because I expected too much from my very first Lush bath bomb. Regardless, it isn't the most exciting bath bomb out there as it pretty much just turned the water yellow. It definitely smelt good, as most Lush products do, but it was more on the sweet side with a hint of citrus. I agree with its claims of leaving your skin feeling silky and soothed, however once you get out the bath, you're left with shimmer/fine glitter all over your body which really bugged me. The shimmer pretty much stuck to my skin and whatever I touched for a good few hours. The other problem I had was that this stained the bath pretty badly, so I had to try and scrub it off instead of just relaxing once I've finished. So yea, overall I'd say it's an okay bath bomb, good in some ways but it's not for me just because of the shimmer it leaves on the skin and the hassle you have to go through after using it. Not necessarily wowed but I understand how some may really enjoy this product. Have you tried Bombardino, what's your thoughts? x
