Lush Review: Father Christmas Bath Ballistic


I got a big box of Lush bath bombs/ballistics for Christmas, so expect a few reviews in the coming weeks ;)
Today I've chosen to review the Father Christmas bath ballistic. I don't think this is a ballistic I would have chosen to use had I not been given it in a pack, but I'm glad I did.

Straight away this ballistic smells very strongly of oranges, which is fine if you like oranges, but I got a bit bored of the scent after a while. Usually the scent simmers down a little once you've been the bath longer, but this seemed to stay strong for quite a while.

As you can see by the pictures, the colour changes from the peach/white of the Father Christmas face, to a vivid bright green that makes the water a most interesting colour! As the ballistic goes green, you're meant to smell pine, but I smelt none, just oranges!
This ballistic also has a lot of glitter woven through it. I don't mind glitter, but it stayed on my skin after I left the bath, which I wasn't so keen on!

I loved how bright the water went and how the glitter speckled through it, I just wish the glitter didn't transfer to my skin...or the bathtub!

This ballistic is only available at Christmas, and as interesting as it was, I'm not sure I'd buy it.


  1. I have to agree with you, this is really not one of my favourites. I found the orange really over powering.

    Lovely detailed review!

  2. I've got this in a Lush box I received, not too sure about the orange scent though I do like a bit of glitter :) xx

  3. I saw this in the shop and I'm glad I didn't buy it. I don't like orange scented stuff. Thanks for sharing. xx


  4. I always like the idea of the bath bombs especially when they look so cute but I have to say there are quite a few I don't like the smell of! Great review :)

  5. Aww, I loved this! It's one of my favourite bath bombs from Lush and I didn't mind the smell or get glitter on me. Oh well! I have two sat waiting to be used still :) xo

  6. I love trying new lush ballistics, they turn the water so bright!
