Santa’s grotto bath bomb is a brand new addition to the 2019 Christmas range and it’s a stunning one at that. The main ingredients that add to the scent is everlasting flower and ylang ylang. A spicy and herbaceous yet sweet and grounding aroma – this product reminds me of flower’s barrow and after some research you can also find this in a few skincare products from Lush (babyface, 9 to 5 and 7 to 3 cleansers) as it has a soothing property. Back to the bath bomb, this gorgeous product fizzes slowly and foams until a frothy turquoise centre spews out across the surface of the water.
Out of the whole Christmas 2019 range, this is the bath bomb that I am the most excited for. Yes it’s pretty and yes there are blue coloured salt crystals in the centre but when I picked this up in store to sniff, I was blown away. If you’re familiar with the regular line of products from Lush then you will recognise that this is milky bath scented. Such an underrated scent from Lush, I am so pleased they chose this scent for a Christmas product this year! This bomb contains rice starch which softens the water and creates the ultimate milky effect. Whilst the outer shell foams up and creates some white and red bath art, the blue salts ooze out and create blue swirls within the foam, lilac coloured waters and the Brazilian orange and patchouli oils come together to create the classic milky bar scent. Very similar to smelling like freshly laundered linen.. perfection.
The 2019 christmas range includes this revamped snow fairy bath bomb. Last year we had the jelly bomb and previous years we have had father christmas (the one with the bright green core!) – this one is now here to join plenty of other snow fairy scented items that we all know and love. Such a gorgeous design too, this beauty has 2 different delicate lustres on either side to go with the opposite colours. The actual snow fairy scent is very mysterious as the ingredients only show us musk and ‘perfume’. However in this bath bomb there is added persian lime oil which dims down the sickly sweetness that some people may experience from the classic scent.
