Today I had a nice Lush bath using Amandopondo and Butterball. I only had these two left in my Lush stash and I’ve had a sore back the last week so thought I’d throw them both in and have a lovely bath in the hope it would make my back feel better.
Butterball is bath ballistic. It’s quite small and heavy and smells of cocoa butter.
Lush says - The bouncing Butterball is chock with chips of cocoa butter to melt all over your hot body in warm water and smooth you all over like a master masseur. It will fizz joyously, scenting the water with sweet musk and vanilla and softening you up nicely.
Amandopondo is a rose and lemon bubble bar. I’ve already used half of it and it makes lots of bubbles and give a faint rose scent. I love rosy smells, so this makes me very happy! :)
Lush says - Lemon and rose to help you forgive and forget. Amandopondo is scented with rose absolute and a twist of lemon and orange oils. Each little cream pillow of this Bubble Bar has a rosebud on top to symbolize an appeal for forgiveness. Present one to anyone to whom you owe an apology; once they have bathed in its rose-scented foam to soothe resentment, lemon to clear the mind and orange to lift the spirits, all should be forgiven.
First I wash my hair because a lot of purple comes out of it and I don’t want to bathe in purple dye run off! Then while I freeze in my downstairs bathroom I ran my bath and added the Amandopondo bubble bar half. I crumbled it under the running water and was instantly greeted by lots of lovely bubbles and a rosy smell!
Next I added the Butterball. I had been putting off using this because I’d read that a lot of people don’t like it. I’d read that it was greasy and left the bath a mess with cocoa butter, but the Lush description sounded quite nice, so I thought I’d give it a go!
When I put it in the water it fizzed around. It didn’t really smell very strong, just a little hint of vanilla which was quite nice. When I took it out to have a look (see below) you can see all the cocoa butter chips.
I have my bath water quite hot so the cocoa butter chips all melted in the water, but I expect if you don’t have your water very hot they might not melt and get everywhere? Maybe that is where the bad review originate from? I don’t know.
Anyhoo, I had a lovely bath and it left my skin feeling really soft and smooth. My back feels a bit better now and I’m glad I didn’t need to scrub the bath afterwards! That probably would have finished my poor back off! I would definitely buy this again, it smelled lovely and left my skin feeling nice. :)
So now I’m all out of Lush things! I need to get some more. I fancy like trying something new. I’ve been through most of the bath ballistics, maybe I should try some soaps because I’ve not tried any yet. Any suggestions lovely people? :)
