Recently, I’ve been trying out the new Bath Ballistics from Lush. The Bath Ballistics have two layers – the top layer is mixed with shavings of a bubble bar which creates bubbles and foam and inside is basically a bath bomb which fizzes around the bath until dissolved.
The first Bath Ballistic I tried was the Fizzbanger which has quite a strong Christmassy smell of cinnamon and apples. The outer layer of the Fizzbanger is yellow and the inside a bright blue. When I popped it in the bath it left lovely blue and yellow patterns which merged into a vibrant green when I got in and mixed all the water up. I was pleasantly surprised by how many bubbles the Fizzbanger made as usually bath bombs leave the water coloured but with absolutely no bubbles. I also like the fact that my skin was left feeling nice and soft after my bath.
Next, I tried the Twilight Bath Ballistic. This one has a pinky purple shell with a blue middle and smells better than the Fizzbanger. I couldn’t really tell what the smell was but apparently it’s lavender and ovaltine. It didn’t leave patterns in the bath like the Fizzbanger and turned the water a murky dark purple which I wasn’t too keen on as it just looked dirty! My favourite thing about this Bath Ballistic is all the glitter which makes it feel a little bit special and makes up for the colour of the water.
The final Bath Ballistic I tried was the Dragon’s Egg. I saved this one until last because it smelt the best – lemon, grapefruit and jasmine. It turned the bath a bright orange colour and was filled with gold glitter but I was really disappointed as once the Dragon’s Egg was in the water it stank of mothballs – completely different to when it was in the packet! It also left some weird jelly like circles in the bath but I really don’t know what they were for!
My favourite out of the 3 I tried would have to be the Fizzbanger. I would really like to try the other Bath Ballistics in this range and I think they make a nice treat at £2.95.
