REVIEW – Lush ‘Dashing Santa’ Bath Bomb.

As a recent convert to Lush products, on my first visit to their Preston store I went a little crazy! If you check out my Instagram  (link in the sidebar) you can see a little video of what I purchased. One of the bath bombs I had to have was the adorable ‘Dashing Santa’.


Lush describe it as having a cheerful and uplifting scent of satsumas and their product description says that it contains mandarin oil, bergamot oil and orange flower absolute. Of course it is also vegan. There are bits of glitter on his boots but they aren’t noticeable in the bath or on your skin when you get out.

This bath bomb is not my favourite. It’s a slow fizzer (mine took almost 15 minutes to fully dissolve) and the scent, while pleasing, is not very strong. It did leave my skin feeling soft but I did not notice the scent after I had dried off. However, what disappointed me the most was the fact that it didn’t have any fun colours layered through it. It is red all the way through and though you do get a little of the gold colour off of his boots, your water just turns red. I like the fun aspect of bath bombs such as ‘Golden Wonder’, where after the outside has dissolved, you are treated to a rainbow of colours.

Overall, I would recommend this bath bomb as it has a very nice scent and leaves your skin soft and smooth. I would probably say not to buy this if you a looking for a show like you get with ‘Northern Lights’ for example. If you just want a nice smelling soak in the bath but don’t want the scent to linger afterwards because you use a scented body butter or something similar then this is definitely the bath bomb for you. Personally, I don’t think I shall buy this again though, as I do enjoy watching them dissolve and put on a fun colour show.
