YES YES YES! I finally got my hands on a Never Mind the Ballistics so I can review it for you. I did have one from launch day but it got wet in the bag and it was a horror scene.
It is shaped like your typical bath bomb but there is nothing typical about it! It does remind me a bit of Roller which was in the LUSH Kitchen but I’m pretty sure that there’s not been anything like this in stores. It has an organic fair trade cocoa butter topping that covers half the bath bomb and melts in the warm water leaving you with moisturised and nourished skin. Which is what we all need this cold season!
This is part of the Christmas range but like a lot of the other products released this year, it’s not very festive but honestly it’s so amazing that it doesn’t really matter. The pink and orange colour combination seens perfect for summer to me and the scent of lime and sweet wild orange oils are more fresh and zesty than festive. It also contains bananas, if I recall I’m pretty sure that the demonstrator in LUSH said that each one has 1 WHOLE banana in, which also softens the water and your skin.
It is a very slow fizzer but I think that is down to half of it being oil based. The main colour of the water is yellow but when you get to the centre there are streams of pink that dance around the bath.
Over all I’m don’t think that this should be a Christmas product but I do love it. I think it would be perfect in the summer months. I relate warm hearty scents with Christmas and this is just a little too fresh.
