I couldn’t do a series of Lush reviews at this time of year and not include Cinders. For any of you that have seen any of my Lush holiday hauls you’ll know this is my all-time favourite Lush product. I’m sure some of you will think this is quite boring, or just plain don’t like it, but I love it and always have several (either bought myself – I’ve been known to have purchased 10 in one go in the past… – or gifted by lovely people who know how much I love it) at this time of year.
I’ll be honest, if you want a bath product that actually does something, this isn’t for you. It doesn’t leave your skin amazingly soft and moisturised or anything like that. I love this so much purely for the experience. Cinders is a bath bomb, so another one that you pop into your bath once it’s full and it fizzes up, changing the water into a cosy orange colour. This smells of cinnamon, clove and sweet orange oil, perfect for the festive season, and so warm and comforting on cold nights. Along with the warm colour of the bath and the yummy scent, this also has popping candy, which crackles and pops in the water, leaving you feeling like you’re wrapped up in a cocoon of cosiness.
That scent is to die for and I can never get enough of it. The past few years the scent has seemed a bit diluted, not as strong, and didn’t seem to crackle as much, but this year it is back to how I remember it being when I first discovered it – sweet, warm, and comforting with lots of crackles. This is the one thing I look for every year and hope Lush never discontinue it, I think I would cry if they did! It’s the perfect thing for a cold winters day and you’d better believe I’ll be grabbing more before they disappear for another year.
Available from Lush for £2.95
