When Juan and I lived in our apartment for 4 years, I did not take a single bath (I promise I took showers!) The reason I never took a bath is because the tub was, as I like it refer to it, sketchy. It was an old claw foot tub, and as much as I tried to clean it, it never felt clean enough for me to want to sit and soak in. We've been in our house for almost a year now, and I've just been so used to not taking a bath, that I wasn't really bothered by it. But when I went to the mall the other day and walked past LUSH, I knew the insanity needed to stop - I wanted to take a bath dammit!

I've purchased a few LUSH products before, but never really the bath stuff, so thankfully I had a super helpful girl walk me around the store so that she could recommend products based on the scents I like, the mood I wanted for my bath (romantic? energizing? relaxing?) I probably could have bought one of everything based on the cool looking factor of everything they sell, but I controlled myself and only got a few Bath Bombs and a Bubble Bar

The Enchanter - Enchanting citrus sunset bomb

This smells so zesty and uplifting - I can't wait to use it! It will turn the water shades of tangerine then pink, who wouldn't love that? I think this will be perfect to use on a gloomy Fall day when you really need to add a little something-something to get to up and out the door
Dragon's Egg - Citrus sherbet-scented fizzy firecracker 
Okay - let's talk about what the LUSH website says about this: "Unleash fire and bathe in a whirlpool of magnificently vibrant, sizzling color and a spectacular explosion of sights, sounds, and scents. Inhale the refreshing sherbet-y citrus scent of lemon and bergamot; you'll feel like you're up and away on the back of your own dragon. This mystical Bath Bomb fizzles, crackles, curls, and ends with a glitter explosion" Umm, yes!? It just sounded like too much fun to pass up. I'll report back and let you know if it really is as exciting as they describe
So White - Apple fizzer for happy endings

I love how this one smells - just like a crisp, fresh apple. And the best part of this one? You throw it against the side of your tub like a snowball and it explodes and reveals a pink center! Yes really! I better warn Juan before I throw it or he might wonder what I'm breaking in the bathroom :)

The Comforter - Comforting fruity blackcurrant bubbler

... Oh wait, sorry - I was hypnotized by the purple and white swirls of this bubble bar. This might be my favorite 'scent' of all the products I got. It's sweet and fruity, but still has some depth to it so that you don't smell like a candy store. And, this is large enough to break in half and use for a second bubble bath :)

It's safe to say that I will be going back very soon to stock up on the super cute Holiday products they've started putting out!

What have you tried from LUSH? Any recommendations?

Peace, love & marshmallows!
