I’m not a Lush person, generally speaking. I feel like when it comes to all things bath bomb you have to know your stuff. Well, I do not know any stuff but what I do know is that we, Ruth and I, love a good bath bomb and you can trust Lush to do a good bath bomb. We don’t get them often, mostly because I don’t go anywhere where there is a Lush very often anymore but since Ruth’s been interested she’s had them at Christmas time either for her Christmas Eve box or stocking or something. Last year she had the ‘Rainbow’ for the first time which was really cool.
When we were at the Trafford Centre recently, I popped into Lush and came out with a few festive bits. I wanted something nice for the cabin and thought a nice relaxing bath with a Christmassy bath bomb would be a nice treat.
One thing you can always count on with Lush is the most wonderful customer service. The staff greet you as you go in and are always so helpful. I’m not usually a fan of the ‘do you need any help with anything?’ question when I go into a shop. It makes me panic and can feel a bit intrusive but the Lush staff have just got such a friendly and approachable air about them I’m always grateful for their help and their infinite knowledge of the products they sell.
This occasion we were there was no exception. We had a member of staff help us who seemed to know exactly what we were looking for. So imagine Ruth’s face when they read her mind and then directed her towards the jelly bombs.
This is the Snow Fairy Jelly Bomb. While I can’t say this is my ideal bath accompaniment, the fact that it covers the bath with a layer of jelly/slime was the best thing Ruth had ever heard.
It’s a bright pink goo that smells delicious and Ruth was so impressed with. I don’t know what’s in it or anything but it was perfect for her!
I got a luxury lush pud and it smells amazing. I love all the colours swirl around in the bath (and I forgot to take a picture!). This is definitely my cup of tea. I’m not a ‘goo in the bath’ sort of person like Ruth! And, again this was kindly recommended by the staff member there.
I also picked up a Cheery Christmas for Ruth’s stocking which is beautiful and pink and she’ll love it and Butterbear for Bernadette because I can’t leave her out! I knew that one would be safe for babies but asked anyway to double check and sure enough they told me all about the baby friendly ones!
I love Christmas as much as the next guy but it’s not without it’s stresses and to do lists and rushing around so it’s perfect to get a little treat like this just to try and relax this time of year.
