After seeing so many bloggers rave about Lush handmade bath bombs I decided to venture in today, during a shopping trip to Belfast, to see what all the fuss was about! After smelling basically everything in the shop I purchased their 'Tisty Totsy' bath bomb. It smells amazing - so comforting and definitely one to buy if you have trouble relaxing/sleeping.

It's beautiful scent is a combination of 'floral orris root powder, rose and lemon', and it's also studded with 7 real rosebuds that float in the bath. It reminded me of talc at first but my sense of smell is the worst.

Another plus is the über-cute packaging, it comes dated in a little paper bag with instructions for your brand new bath bomb. Lets hope this little Lush love spell has some truth in it!
"This ballistic is a love spell.
Fill the bath, get in, hold the ballistic in your hands whilst contemplating your chosen one.
Lower into the water to unleash its powerful magic.
Watch the seven rosebuds emerge from the swirling potion and count your way to a budding romance."
At £3.25 each they're just too good to resist. I rarely take baths (I'm more of a shower kinda gal) but I predict myself converting, or at least every time there's a lush bath bomb near. If you're more of a shower lover too then you might fancy trying their shower jelly - it's smells and looks exactly like the jelly you eat. I'm not sure how practical shower jelly is but it smells scrummy!

I was originally going to buy the 'Ickle Baby Bot' bath bomb before I decided on 'Tisty Tosty' - it's a lavendar bath bomb used to help babies get to sleep, but it must work on adults too riiiight? Their 'Honey I Washed The Kids' hand and body soap is yummy too, and if you're looking for something refreshing 'Avobath' is one to try (no picture, sorry).
I think I've found my new favourite shop! The gorgeous scents, packaging and oh-so-cute names have got me over excited about taking a bath. I'm yet to try my 'Tisty Totsy' but I just know it's going to be the best bath I've had in years, literally.
