When I headed to the pre launch of the Lush Christmas range (see here) I couldn’t resist picking up this little fella. It was a tough choice between the snowman and the penguin bubble bar.
I love how cute this is with the little red scarf and orange nose. He’s also very reasonably priced at £2.50. The scent was definitely a deciding factor and I was told it’s similar to butterball which made me want it even more. It’s a soft sweet scent that isn’t overpowering but gives of a nice subtle scent of vanilla.
The Snowman is a decent size bath bomb and gives off good fizz. I did wonder what colour the water would be as it is predominately white. A part of me hoped he’d have a surprise centre!
As he whizzed around the bath it left a red trail which settled to soft pink water once it was all gone. The best thing about the snowman is actually also the worst but I’ll explain that later.
I loved that once it disolved in the water there were chunks of cocoa butter left over meaning I could rub this into my skin and be left with silky smooth skin. I love the smell of cocoa butter and this was one of the reasons I picked it up.
It’s a perfect one for winter months as it leaves skin with that little extra moisture after a nice soak in the bath!
The downside it the cocoa butter leaves a residue around the bath that the red seems to stick too. It looks pretty messy but luckily left no staining in my bath as I washed it all out straight after!
Not one to stock up on as it is basically the same as butterball but it’s a great price and added red colour makes a bath more interesting.
