Lush : Butterball Bath Bomb

One of the cheaper bath bombs that Lush sell is the Butterball bath bomb at only £2.40. It is described as:
"Don’t let your skin turn to crackling in that hot bath. Vanilla fragrance and cocoa butter leaves you good enough to eat.

Hot bath water can sometimes leave you getting out of the bath dryer than you think. Put moisture back into your skin with this ballistic, so you can lie back, enjoy a long bath and top up that hot water as often as you like.

This ballistic is another of Mo’s early inventions – but its small size packs such a large punch of vanilla and musk perfume and skin protecting cocoa butter that it remains a best seller today."
To be honest, there is not much to say about this bath bomb, but that is not to say it isn't very good, it is just one of their more basic bombs! This is a great one to start with if you have never been to lush as it has a very soft delicate scent (musky vanilla) and I know a lot of people are put off by the strong scent when you enter Lush.

Once I dropped this bomb into the bath, it fizzed away very quickly and I was left with a very odd looking bath.

As you can see there are brown oil like particles floating around the bath, which I believe is cocoa butter. Although a little strange looking, it is lovely rubbed into the skin and leaves your skin feeling very soft and moisturised, which lasted through to the next day. This is definitely a good bomb to use if your skin has been suffering from the harsh winter and therefore feeling quite dry.

The only negative thing I have to say about this bomb was that the oil clung onto the side of my bath, which meant I had to give it a good old clean afterwards! But this wasn't too much of an issue, it just needed a little scrub.

Has anyone else tried Butterball, if so what did you think?

  7. This one is my favourite lush bath bomb of all time! I used it once and noticed that the oil got stuck to the side of the bath, so now I just make sure I give my bath a good scrub before I use it and it doesn't seem to stick. But great post, I love seeing what the bath bombs do before buying them so keep it up!
