Lush Think Pink Ballistic Bath Bomb + The Comforter Bubble Bar

Let's start off with the fact that I don't have a bath tub at home. (I know.... I know.) So when my dad told my mom and I that he booked a room in a hotel to celebrate their wedding anniversary the first thing I thought of was "bath tub!" and second was "LUUUSH" Of course I had to make most out of the opportunity so getting just one bath bomb or one bubble bar wasn't an option. Then again I'd probably be broke from all the bath products I'd be buying and anti social from using up all my spare time in the tub...

Think Pink Ballistic Bath Bomb (mini version, 90g) PHP 225

What Lush has to say:

"Inspired by the delightful Audrey Hepburn, Pink is sophisticated, sexy, elegant, and witty. Fragranced with edgy tonka bean, neroli, and the sweetness of vanilla absolute, it turns baths into candy-scented fantasies with a fragrance that lingers on your skin long after you’re out of the bath. It's sweet, but not overbearingly so, with a subtle bite of something cheeky. Spoil yourself; instead of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, have an indulgent bath with Pink."
It was fun to watch the bath bomb fizz and the water slowly turning to a clear baby pink color. The bathroom started to fill up with a sweet and girly scent, but nothing strong or overpowering. 
Aside from the flowers decorated on top of the ballistic, there were tiny heart confettis in different shades of pink at the bottom of the tub which added a cheeky touch. I like Lush's bath bombs and how it's a fun bath product but I honestly don't really like the idea of soaking in a tub that's clear. I'm the kind of girl who likes her bubble baths!
The Comforter PHP 395
For the bubbles of my Lush concoction I decided to choose something similar to Think Pink, so the scents and colors wouldn't clash. The tub was already quite full (stupid me) by the time the bath bomb completely dissolved. The trick with bubble bars is that the stronger the water pressure, the more bubbles it will create. Since I wanted a lot of bubbles I turned up the water to the strongest pressure, so I obviously ended up with too much water in the tub that I had to drain it a bit. So tip for all you girls (or guys) planning on making their own Lush bath bomb and bubble bar cocktail, don't fill up the tub right away for the bath bomb.

What Lush has to say:
"When life is getting you down, crumble The Comforter under hot, running water for passionately purple water and creamy, comforting bubbles. This massive slice of vibrant fruitiness gives you the feeling of being enveloped in a warm hug and gently consoled by the friendly fruity aroma of a blackcurrant candy. It was created to bring a real sense of comfort to people, just like a real comforter would. Snuggle in, and stay undercover until you’re ready to face the world once again. Even better, each bar creates two baths of fruity comfort."
It didn't create as much bubbles as I thought it would even if I used one whole bubble bar, since Lush claims that you can make use of their bubble bars for two baths. Maybe it was because I added too much water? The water also turned to a cloudy pink from a clear baby pink.
The duo made a sweet and relaxing scent, perfect to unwind and listen to some good music. Some hot chocolate and your magazine or book would be the cherry on top. As for the bubbles, it didn't last too long, there were hardly any left after an hour.
It was too soon...

What's your favorite Lush bath product?

    1. I think I'd really enjoy Honey Bee since I love Lush's Honey I Washed the Kids soap, it's supposed to share the same scent. I definitely have to try that one out, thanks for the suggestion! :)

  12. My rule of thumb with bubble baths (I take advantage of hotel tubs too) is to start putting the bubbling stuff in as soon as there's about an inch of water... Latest would be 1/3 of the tub. I only fill it halfway because, Archimedes :P
