Lush - Soot Ball.

 
When you looked at him, did you instantly fall in love?
It's those big eyes. What a cutie!

If you follow me on Instagram (@chanellejade) you'll know that I recently had a little Lush Cosmetics haul online. Now I usually 'dodge' the Lush shop when I'm out and about shopping as the scent is always too heavy for me, it doesn't really draw me in. So I decided to have a look online... well a few YouTube videos later, I had a basket full of their bath bombs and a couple of other bits and bobs too.

It seems that Lush have all kinds of different bath bombs to offer. Going from soft and gentle, to sex bombs, to ones filled with all kinds of exciting things. Ooo the excitement! This one is a new one added just for Halloween.

So the colour of this one may put quite a few people off, but look underneath the black coating there's black shining through him (reminds me of a crunchie). It kind of has a sweet/spicy scent to it, I'd say more spicy than sweet, but then it does have a scent of burnt caramel? Odd I know haha! It also includes olibanum which is known for its calming effect on the mind. Perfect for a Monday night, eyy? This bath bomb is quite a slow releaser and leaves you with nice golden glittery water.
Unfortunately this one isn't really for me :( I like my sweet/girly/candy scents and this just doesn't cut it. I was quite disappointed in all fairness as it didn't really impress me as much as the others that I've tried. The water wasn't as golden as I thought it would be and the smell was just a little off putting altogether. It's a shame though as he's such a cute little thing. But may I add that they have super fast delivery. I ordered mine on Monday at about 6/7pm and it was with me on Wednesday morning. Top service! and I really like that they stamp when the product was made, when to use by and who it were that put it together, it's kind of cute :)

this was the only picture I had of the water as my battery died, how annoying!
kind of looks like an egg yolk haha.


You can't really fault him for the price though at just £2.50. If you like spice rather than sweet in scents you'll probably like him.
If you wish to purchase a Soot Ball from Lush Cosmetics, they do have him available in store and online at www.lush.co.uk

Little bit of a different review today, did you like it?
What's your favourite Lush bath bomb?
