LUSH Cinders


 Now you know I’m not the BIGGEST fan of LUSH bath bombs, they’re expensive and most of them don’t do much more than smell nice and turn your bath a funny colour but I decided that if I was to keep saying this I really had to try more of them.. only fair. Cinders is up today and I’m afraid this is a perfect example of the blah for me.. the Golden Wonder wasn’t all that but at least it created a bit of a spectacle in the tub.. this just fizzes and turns the water vaguely yellow. The scent is nice but nothing I’d pay to smell again. A little bit festive but nothing I can’t get from a Candle which is much better value for money.


The red beads you can see are popping candy though I didn’t hear it popping.. from other reviews I’ve read it sounds like this is a little hit and miss..maybe it’s the way you put it in the bath? I will say that this is one of the cheaper options so if you like the idea of the fizz and fun I’d suggest you give it a go.. I definitely think I’m just a bit of a scrooge about the whole thing and I’m sure there are many people who love it but for me it was another dud. Another plus however is that there was no residue in the bath so unlike the butter ball which I love there’s no oil/shimmer/weird colour to rinse away.

Available online here for £2.45

    I use the Lush bath bombs for the kids, they love to see it fizzing away and the popping candy (when it works-in dragons egg too) but I don’t really like them myself, I don’t have baths very often and when I do I use expensive oils! 🙂

    Cinders is a strange one. I love the smell, but I’ve had one that barely made a peep while the next one popped and crackled for ages and had white popping candy throughout it. I think it’s luck of the draw whether you get one with lots of popping candy or not.

    i would recommend the bubble bars rather than bath bombs until i tried the bombardino from the christmas collection. made the bath feel like i had used bath oil..divine 🙂 xx

    I do love bath bombs but purely because of the fun of them dissolving! I’ve never, however thought all that much of them in the way of being good for your skin etc. x

    Please do try Bomb Cosmetics! I’m such a fan I can’t help but rave about them. They do have Bath Bombs, but also lots of other bath/shower goodies, all organic/natural, and even candles (I admit I never tried those though so can’t comment on them).
    My skin always feels super soft after using them, they are so pretty looking too…I can only urge you to try them! They’re even cheaper than Lush 😀
