I've been slacking with these Lush Christmas baths that I promised.. I've since bought another mountain of Lush items as part of my Christmas present from my boyfriend. Some of them contain bubble bars from their festive collection which I may (or may not) add onto this series, but I did want all the festive ones to have been reviewed before the year is out!
Although this bath melt looks so pretty to look at, I was a bit apprehensive about using it because I was covered in silver shimmer/glitter every time I touched it, so I had a feeling it was going to be a very glittery bath!
As with most Lush products, I got a nice surprise when I went to cut this star in half (yes, I'm one of those stingy people that like to get 2 baths out of my products if possible!). The inside was blue which gave a lovely light blue colour to the bath water. I remember thinking this was rather hard to crumble under the running water because of the consistency of the melt. I loved how creamy it was though.
The silver 'glitter'? It didn't stick to me as I was expecting. It laid on top of the water like a layer of frosting (see photo below).
This melt is described as a 'lime and ginger scented bath filled with light lustre and a shea butter fondant'. I can definitely agree with the lime, however because it consisted of shea butter too, the citrus scent was evened out nicely. I loved the creaminess of this once combined with water, giving off a really luxurious feel.
Although I enjoyed this to look at, it didn't make my bath look very exciting, and the blue soon faded into the water to leave just the 'icing' on top.
