Remember, remember, the fifth of November,
gunpowder, treason and plot!
Yes it’s Bonfire Night again, and what better way to celebrate than using a Cinders bath bomb from Lush? ….ok, so standing around a bonfire watching fireworks might be better, but this is cheaper, and the big firework displays aren’t until the weekend anyway 😛
Costing £2.95 this is one of the cheaper bath bombs, and being a similar size to Butterball it’s also one of the smallest. Even so, the spicy cinnamon aroma was really strong, so I had high expectations for this one.
Carefully placing it on the bathwater the popping candy crackled away, sounding like the crackles of a bonfire, and the scent dispersed through the water to leave an aromatic bathtub which was a lot less potent than the smell of the bath bomb originally.
However, there was no real display from this bath bomb. As soon as it touched the water, it immediately sank to the bottom of the tub, which none of the other bath bombs I’ve used have done. While it turned the water a reasonably nice golden shade which was similar to Dragon’s Egg, there wasn’t any foam or multicoloured effects like the other bath bombs.
I knew that some bath bombs like Butterbear and Butterball don’t give any colours, but they’re designed to emit shea- and cocoa butters. This little bath bomb doesn’t contain anything like that, so I had at least expected it to bob about on the surface of the water, and have some red colouring to go with the gold.
Overall, this bath bomb was a let down for me – it’s not the most expensive out there, but I feel it was a total waste of money for the (lack of) effects it produced in the water
