"Looking like a miniature traditional Christmas pudding, smelling of marzipan and full of lovely goodies like lemon peel powder, clove powder, aloe vera extract and rose absolute, this ballistic will leave you feeling peace and goodwill towards all. And whilst you were blissed out in the smell, that aloe vera extract will have been soothing and bringing clam to your winter skin.
This ballistic is a Christmas institution with our staff and customers alike. We have been making it now for more than 10 years, with people coming back each December just to buy it.
It’s a little bit of tradition that we hope never goes out of fashion.
Shares the same fragrance as our Xmas number one – Snowcake soap."
With the holidays upon us, I figured I would reveiew an item I received from last years christmas line (I know, I will try to be better about getting stuff up!)
I like this bath bomb... it isn't beautiful in the tub, but it smells great and feels great too! They were correct on the scent - like snowcake soap - it's strong and quite a "comfort food" smell, which I don't typically enjoy - but it's definitely good for Christmas time, and indulging yourself in a treat once in a while!
Beware - it has tendencies to stain your tub faintly... nothing that isn't a quick wipe off - but the brown color can be quite a turn off for some, so I thought I would mention it.
*I don't think these are available this year. Lush has all of their Christmas products available on the website now, and this must not have made it for return! If you love snowcake soap and want to try this product, usually there are ebay sellers who hold products - these don't necessarily go bad - so that's always an option to check out if you can't get your hands on products from an older line that are no longer available on the website!
We woke up early to get our food going, listening to the new Rih Rih album with football on the tube. We had a few drinks, and literally I had all the candles in the house going :-)
...after dinner we snuggled down to watch a movie together with a slice of apple pie!
One of my favorite Thanksgiving memories with my sister was the year we drank so much Lambrusco... we couldn't stop laughing. It was such a good time. So for me, it's kind of a tradition to have a few glasses of it for my homie :)
We also woke up early on Friday and did some Black Friday shopping
we scored on some really good deals!
