Lush Snowman Bath Bomb Review

I feel like it’s been awhile since I did a bath review and that’s honestly because I haven’t had time for nice relaxing baths lately. But I handed in my proposal, so I had a wonderful Sunday off (went to see Catching Fire in IMAX!) and yesterday I managed to have a bath with the lovely Lush Snowman Bath Bomb*

Lush Snowman is actually a reformatting of the best-selling bath bomb, Butterball, into a cuter shape (and honestly, isn’t he adorable?) As soon as I smelled it, I understand why this product is so popular. Vanilla is my weakness, and Lush Snowman had me from the first sniff.

The original Butterball is 90 g, and Lush Snowman is slightly bigger at 100 g, but although I did break him up into two (unequal–– he just didn’t break nicely like the spherical ones do) pieces I honestly think bath bombs of this size should be used in one piece. When the bath bomb is 180 g like some of the larger ones such as Lush Shoot For The Stars, breaking it in half basically gives you a bathbomb the size of the Snowman.

Not only is he cute, but he doesn’t do anything too crazy to the bathwater like change it burgundy, so I feel like he’s pretty safe that way. Instead, you just get an ultra-moisturizing bath in which there are actual chunks of cocoa butter floating in the water. Personally, I find that a tiny bit gross, but it does leave your skin super soft.

So there are no bubbles or colour changes or surprises, which admittedly I do really like, but the reason this passes when some of the other ones I considered boring don’t is because of how moisturizing it is and also because the scent is amazing. Have I talked about the scent of Lush Snowman? If you know what Butterball smells like, you know this, but it’s a mouthwatering vanilla that smells relaxing and delicious in the bath although I don’t think it leaves a lasting scent on your skin afterwards, which is okay with me given how many different types of scented products I have.

Overall, the adorable Lush Snowman was a decent success. It’s not my favourite thing from Lush, but it smells amazing, is incredibly moisturizing, and is pretty cute. I have been very stressed lately, and this was absolutely perfect to help me relax. I also think it would be great to include in a holiday gift of any sort (it’s more winter than Christmas-themed) because it’s not over the top, but it smells amazing and is especially perfect given all the dry winter skin that’s coming up.
