Hello everyone! Today I'm going to be reviewing Northern Lights, which is a bath ballistic from Lush's Halloween/Christmas collection. I know this is very late but I received this as a present for Christmas. If like me and you're a massive Lush fan, then you'll be happy to read about any Lush product, no matter what time of year it is! This was very popular this year so I think its more than likely that it will be released again. So hopefully this will help you decide whether you want to buy one or not this year!
I'm not going to lie, I'd seen this product hyped up so much that I couldn't help but feel a little let down by it. Don't get me wrong, it was still nice but I was expecting a lot more. I'd heard that it 'spins' around the bath and as it was released for firework night I was expecting a lot. There was some popping candy in it which gave it a little crackle. As for it spinning around the bath: it was a little faster than regular bath bombs but that's because rods have smaller moment of inertia's than spheres. So you know, physics not any spectularily wacky ingredients. Although I think this is something that had been set up by other bloggers/people on Instagram and wasn't a claim from Lush themselves. Still, I was a bit underwhelmed.
As for it as a bath bomb, it was pretty good. Its mostly purple but there was also some blue and yellow colouring in there too. There was some glitter but not an annoying amount, I personally hate too much glitter in a bath bomb because it makes it such a pain to clean up. It also had a really soothing scent as it contains jasmine and ylang ylang. I really like it when bath products contain these ingredients as I find them really relaxing.
Overall I enjoyed this bath bomb but if they release it again I won't be rushing out to buy it. The shape is cool but a bit unnecessary and it makes it awkward to fit in the bath. It did smell really good though!
