Review: Lush - Sparker Bath Ballistic (Halloween 2014)

"A crackling and fizzing Rose Jam-scented bath bomb that makes bath night fireworks night. The soothingly-fragranced bomb fizzes and crackles in an explosion of colour, spinning around the bath turning it into a fiery, shimmering display" - Lush

This Lush bath ballistic is in a new format, in a stick shape rather than a ball.

Once it is in the water it crackles a little bit which is from the popping candy in it. It turns the water a bright yellow colour and fills the bath with glitter and shimmer. The glitter sticks to you and turns you in to a glitter ball, which may or may not be a positive depending on your thoughts on glitter. You will also need to clean the glitter out of the bath afterwards as it does leave a lot of it in there.

The scent is similar to the Rose Jam scent from Lush. Strongly scented with Rose, but this scent doesn't linger on the skin.

I personally didn't like this bath ballistic, because I don't like glitter and it left my skin and hair full of gold glitter which wouldn't come off until I went in the shower and scrubbed it off. Yellow bath water is also quite off putting. Another thing I wasn't keen on was the rose scent. Both of mt reasons for not enjoying this are very personal and if you like glitter and the rose scent then you may like this!



This is supposed to be in stores until Christmas 2014
£3.50 - Lush

Review: Elemis FreshSkin - Skin Clear Mattifying Moisturiser

Review-Elemis-FreshSkin-Skin-Clear-Mattifying-Moisturiser
Elemis FreshSkin - Skin Clear Mattifying Moisturiser

"Mattifying moisturiser to control the shine of oily skins. A skin multitasker, this reduces T-zone shine within one hour of application and maintains a matt finish to the skin for up to 8 hours. Shea Butter helps promote skin cell renewal, hydrates and protects all day long, whilst reducing redness, inflammation and helps minimise post blemish imperfections" - TimeToSpa

I actually won this moisturiser in a competition, this doesn't affect my views on the product.

So the Elemis FreshSkin range is aimed at teens to early twenties, I may be in my late twenties but I still look for a mattifying moisturiser to use when I am not wearing make up or to use under make up. You do not want a greasy moisturiser to use under make up.

The moisturiser is quite thin however does provide adequate moisture to the face.

It does have quite a lemon fresh scent to it which is very slightly irritating to the eyes. 

It claims to be a mattifying moisturiser however this is not the case, I would describe it as semi-matte. This works well under foundation and make up, if I use it and don't go on to wear make up it leaves my face looking slightly shiny. Certainly not the matte finish which I have come to expect from Asda's Matte Moisturiser (although this can be slightly drying).

Overall it is quite a nice moisturiser, although it isn't matte as it claims to be. I do like the pump action dispenser, however the packaging isn't clear and so there is no way of knowing when you are running low on the product. 

The RRP is around £21 which for me personally is too expensive especially seeing as it does not live up to the matte claims. I will continue to use this moisturiser but it certainly isn't something I will be rushing out to replace.
