Monster Ball LUSH Review

Guess who’s back! Back again! Eleana’s back! Tell a friend!….Oh dear Eleana is the least gangster name going but do tell your friends!

Hello Guys! I am back with my second Halloween LUSH review, this time we are looking at Monsters’ Ball and I know I say this every time but…this is by far my favourite. I mean it this time!

Just look at this little fella! He kind of reminds me of a pink version of Mick Wazowski from Monsters Inc. Any one else think that? His eye is actually made from vegan white chocolate but its probably best still not to eat it.

Right lets get on with this review!…I said in my review of Autumn Leaf that I really enjoyed that is was a Autumn/Halloween bath bomb that wasn’t a ‘scary’, character, monster style product and I do stick by my word. It was refreshing but Halloween IS about those things and lets be honest this little guy isn’t scary his kind of cute. He smells incredible too. It holds the same scent as the calacas product family. Does anyone remember The Enchanter from 2015? Well, it’s the same scent as that. So this not necessarily a new product as much as it is a new design, a ‘revamp’ if you will.

Filled with lime and neroli oil (which boosts your happy hormone) this ballistic gives you a hit of zesty goodness but it still has a earthy hint to it making it perfect for the season and great for an uplifting bath. With the addition of coco butter to sooth and moisturise your skin and olibanum oil for that extra relaxation.

Monsters’ ball is a medium fizzer with pink/purple being the initial colour. As is spins and foams it releases more of the calacas scent and begins to release the blue centre. The blue, pink and purple layers swirl around the bath creating beautiful patterns. Although they aren’t very seasonal colours they are very pretty to watch dancing around the surface of the water.

As the colours reach the edge of the tub they start to form a pink and purple ombre. This for me personally is why this bath bomb is now one of my favourites!

I really hope that this will be brought back in the future, even if it’s not shaped like a little monster but even if the colours and formula are brought back in an ‘all year round’ ballistic. That would be amazing!

Just incase they don’t though I will be grabbing a load of these before they sell out!

Autumn Leaf Bath Bomb

Being well into Autumn and Halloween just around the corner I realised I best start reviewing the Lush products for this season. So up first is Autumn Leaf bath bomb!

This bath bomb really appealed to me when I saw it in the store, it’s not like the standard spooky halloween products that are released. You can already see the colours that run through it before it has even touched the water. It really is a beautiful ballistic.

Sharing its scent with Grass Shower Gel and bubble bar this bath bomb holds a very fresh, outdoorsy, earthy scent with a combination of neroli, sandalwood and maple sap it really is calming.

Lush have really upped their game recently and the stories that their products tell are just wonderful. The story of Autumn Leaf is the colour change in leaves between Summer and Autumn.

Autumn Leaf is a flow fizzer and because of its shape it floats on the water keeping its shape for longer. It spills out greens, yellow, warm orange and red creating an almost ombre foam.

Over all I think this is one of the best Autumn bath bombs they have released.  I will for sure be grabbing a few of these before the end of the season and I hope it makes another appearance.
