Review: Lush - Secret Santa

Modelled on our first shop in Poole and fragrenced with our 29 High Street perfume this is our very own Santa’s grotto. The fragrance was created to emulate the rich smell of essential oils inside the shop, and there's even a miniature red Father Christmas bath bomb inside!

This bath ballistic was very large, and when you shook it it rattled. Because this was so big I smashed it in to pieces so I could divide it between two baths. Inside of the house shell was a red santa's head which turned the water a red colour although with the amount of orange this was overpowered in the bath water. 

The fragrance of this was a slight Ylang Ylang although it was fresh with a vague citrus scent to it as well. Although the scent didn't linger on the skin nor was it particularly over powering in the bath itself.

I found that this made the water a great uplifting orange colour, however it also spat out a lot of dirt and twigs. Almost like the floor of a forest in your bath. However it didn't last and didn't mean a lengthy clean up afterwards.

Review: Lush - Lord of Misrule

This bath bomb, named after the ruler of the Pagan Feast of Fools, has a strange and magnificent fragrance created by Gorilla Perfumer Simon Constantine. This bomb will slowly dissolve to reveal a wine coloured centre, with the added sweetness of the world’s first fair trade vanilla absolute, perfectly balanced by the earthy scents of black pepper and patchouli oil -

This bath ballistic is from the Christmas 2013 Collection, it is new for this year. The first thing I noticed about this was the colour, a very green colour with random yellow and pink dots. There is a giant star shape on the top of this as well.


Another point which I think makes this quite unique is the amount of time it took to fizz away, it was well over ten minutes before this stopped fizzing around the bath. Also there is no bits in this one so you can use it without having to put it in a sock to save on the clean up.


First you get a green colour, then it breaks down and the centre which is a pink / red colour begins to spurt out of it. Then things start to get even weirder, there is popping candy inside and you can hear the crackling from that in the water for around five minutes.


The water ends up a grey / brown colour and with the earthy scents and crackling noises you being to feel as if you are sitting in a witches cauldron.


The scent of this bath ballistic is quite an earthy one (not a dirty soil smell though), the main scent is patchouli, some spiciness but there is definitely a softer side to that which I imagine is the vanilla. The scent does linger on your skin for a good couple of hours afterwards. 


This is quite a visually interesting bath ballistic, and it does take a good amount of time to fizz away to nothing and as such it something you will want to have a fair amount of time to watch and to use.

I would get this again, I hope that Lush bring this back again next year.
