Lush Li'l Lush Pud

The Li'l Lush Pud bath ballistic has made a re-appearance in Lush's Christmas collection this year. It is supposed to be one of Lush's most soothing ballistics as it is made with aloe vera extract to nurture dry or rough skin. Powdered lemon peel and clove add both sweetness and spice for the "full pudding experience".

Aesthetically, it definitely puts one in the holiday mood thanks to the cute mistletoe on top.

In the water, it fizzes rapidly and is completely gone within three minutes. To be honest, I found the scent to be too subtle and non-descript compared to Sex Bomb. It certainly did not feel like I had just jumped into a Christmas pudding! It did leave my skin feeling soft and moisturised.

Here's the ingredients list: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Organic Aloe Vera Extract (Aloe barbadensis), Clove Powder (Eugenia caryophyllus), Lemon Peel Powder (Citrus limonum), Cassie Absolute (Acacia farnesiana), Benzoin Resinoid (Styrax benzoin), Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena), Propylene Glycol, Benzyl Benzoate, Perfume, Candy Holly Leaf.

Some reviews on the Lush UK website complained that it stained their bath tubs brown but I did not experience this problem at all. At just £1.95 for 90g, it's one of Lush's more affordable bath ballistics but this just wasn't that special for me. I still much prefer the Sex Bomb's stronger fragrance and how it turns the water a cheerful Barbie pink.

Looks a little too muddy in the bath for my liking- the color of sexbomb is prettier :)

I actually love the scent of the lush pud =) but the water color always looks gross and the scent doesn´t linger really
