Review: Lush - The Comforter Bath Bomb


"Fizzing fast to create fruity foam of purple, pink and white, this cloud-like ball of cassis will help you unwind before you hit the hay. A merry berry blanket of blackcurrant comforts and a burst of brightening bergamot oil refreshes and resets the mind. Meanwhile, soothing cypress oil ushers in a tide of comfort and joy" - Lush


The shape of this bath bomb is different from the standard round bombs from Lush.

The Comforter Bubble Bar is my go to for bubbles from Lush, this is the same scent just in a different format. Blackcurrant is the overpowering scent from this, the scent seems stronger on the bath bomb than the bubble bar. Takes a while to completely fizz in to nothing.

Turns the water an opaque pink colour, the scent lingered on my skin for hours. I didn't find it did anything to my skin other than scenting it.

Overall I liked this bath bomb and would repurchase it, which is a rare thing as I only seem to go for two of the many bath bomb options from Lush.

Stamping Plate: Konad M65

Recently I have been going through my stamping plate collection to see which I have reviewed. This was one of my first stamping plates in 2010, Konad was one of the first stamping companies and since then technology has moved on and so I don't often reach for my Konad plates anymore.


My problem with this plate is the images are very small for full nail designs. 
The images do stamp across well though.

I have previously swatched this six years ago. As far as I am aware it is still available, and I'm going to continue using and would like a much better swatch post to link back to.

Steel Appeal is Leighton Denny's favourite shade.

Topic Tuesday: What Polishes Do You Keep a Backup Of?


I have backups of Barry M Black Forest as it is a good black cream polish, it is much better formula than Barry M Black. I use a lot of black in nail art as well as wearing as is. Other than that one I have a couple of bottles of Revlon Facets of Fuchsia.

Empties: January 2021



Avon - Dazzle | Polish has well and truly dried up, it was okay [swatch].
Barry M - Jewel Britannia | This was released for the Queens jubilee in 2012, a possible dupe for OPI Rainbow Connection. The glitters had started to bleed in to the base and had started to dry up.
MUA - Deepest Purple | I like this colour and used it up, I have others the same so won't be repurchasing [swatch].
Sally Hansen - Bling-tastic 04 | This had two types and colours of glitter in, it became very thick [swatch].
Kiki London Clear Builder Gel | I have been using a gel overlay on my nails for a few months now and it seems to help them stay long. I am very clumsy and misjudge where my hands are when I try pick something up so this helps that. Not sure if it would work to build length but that is what it is designed for.

The Perfume People - Sexy Bomb | Smells like Lush's Sex Bomb bath bomb, scent lingers around for a while. I think I had a back up of this so won't be repurchasing just now.
So...? Kiss Me Perfume | Glad to have used this up, it wasn't my kind of fragrance.
Boots Acetone Free Remover | Does a good job, would repurchase.

Wickford and Co - Trick or Treat Candle | I think the scent of this is dolly mixtures, it's hard to work out. I liked it and if it was out all year I would repurchase.
Yankee Candle - Vanilla and Cherry | Similar to Black Cherry but a bit sweeter, would repurchase this.

Lypsyl | Didn't like this it made my lips tingle, think I might have been allergic to something in it.
Yankee Candle - Red Raspberry | A nice scent to this, would repurchase.
Lush - Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb | Patchouli, earthy, spicy. Would keep repurchasing as long as they come out for Halloween, I recently stocked up on about four [review].
True Living Salted Carmel Wax | Had a nice scent throw to it, would repurchase this.
L'Occitane Moisturiser | Both of these were very scented, lotion was okay but the packaging was bad for getting the lotion out.
