Review: Lush Think Pink Bath Ballistic


As much as I attempt to hide my inner pink obsessed 5 year old in me, in replace for someone sophisticated who appreciates mature tones of blue and grey, the sight of this 'Think Pink' bath bomb did indeed release that inner pink-obsessed 5 year old in me. I think it even almost neared the excitement of receiving a barbie bike with pink tassels I received when I was five. Yes, quite simply, I like the colour pink. I correct myself, I love the colour. I think it may have been from the over gifted stereotypical pink baby grows and blankets I was gifted as a baby. Supposedly the colour pink symbolises romance, love and comfort. *Shock horror* neither of the first two are present in my lives (wishes upon a magical genie lamp)

Lush describe the Think Pink bath ballistic as a big, pink hug, perfect for those days when rain is lashing at the window and you can think of doing nothing else but snuggling up under the duvet with a good chick flick. Admittedly it hasn't been quite one of those days, but I took a very early morning, combined with rain pouring down in the gallons, making the sky a miserable dark grey as fairly good excuse. Truth be told, ever since I took a good ol' whiff of this bath bomb a few months back in the Regent Street Lush shop (that's where I took the above picture-I am not that dedicated to go to the shop in order to take pictures) I knew it was destined to enter my life. (Just ignore the over exaggerated anecdotes, I feel like I'm in a cheesy 80's movie) Thus, when I opened a beautifully wrapped present on Christmas day from my Auntie and Uncle to find this bath bomb as well as the pretty 'Pop in The Bath' bath melt, my inner pink-obsessed five year old made an appearance, singing 'All I want for christmas is you' in my head. 

All housed within this pretty little pink bath ballistic, are little biodegradable pink heart confetti pieces, along with a not-too-overpowering sweet smelling vanilla scent, with refreshing undertones of Tonka fragrance. Combined, this creates a sweet smelling aroma which fills the bathroom with the nostalgic smell of a child hood sweet shop. The biodegradable hearts fizz out and make you feel like you're in a weird yet enchanting and wonderful Willy Wonka factory, or the common rooms of harry potter. Yes, I can imagine myself hopping in the tub in Hermione's dorm and pink confetti hearts appearing. But do not panic for those of you scared of having little pink things floating around you, once released in a whizzing pink reaction, they gradually sink to the bottom of the water and melt away, leaving your skin feeling as soft as a babies bottom (It had to be said) 


After the bath bomb has completed the whizzing and fizzing, the water is left a bright pink. If you've always longed to try out those magical bath salts that claim to turn your bath to a garish green or blue goo, then this is the bath bomb for you, albeit, ending up covered in goo. 

The bath bomb is an all round happy and cheery-feeling endorser. If you feel like a big, pink, warm and all round fabulous hug, then I advise you hop onto the nearest bus and get yourself down to Lush. 

Price wise, this bath bomb costs £2.50, found here or in store. Whilst it's not the cheapest out there, its a far cry price-wise from some of the other weird and wonderful bath products Lush sell.

Whilst in the past this bath bomb wasn't vegan, I have some good news. Lush have recently contacted their supplier; the ingredients have been slightly altered and its now ideal for you animal-lovers out there! What a perfect excuse to take a trip to Lush, eh?

On a different note, I would really appreciate if you could spend 2 minutes filling out THIS short survey regarding optimizing my blog - create better content, and content that you have requested! Don't be afraid to be honest, it's completely anonymous and I don't bite...often. Thank you!

Have you tried the think pink bath bomb? What is your favourite product from Lush?

P.S. I apologise for the awful photo quality as of late. I left my camera at a relatives over christmas, and with it being a little hectic I haven't had the chance to retrieve so I'm stuck using my sisters rather average camera that makes pictures a little fuzzy and not very clear. I'm not a happy bunny!
