ProsCheaper than a full size bath bomb
The bomb does look cute for gift giving
Turned the water an ugly, dirty color
Full ReviewLil' Pud is a seasonal Christmas bath bomb that I picked up from a Lush store in November 2009. Now, I'm guessing that when they say this bath bomb smells like a pudding, they are referring to an English pudding not that creamy American dessert.
It didn't smell like much in the packaging but it claimed to be full of essential oils and I thought maybe it would smell stronger in the bath. That was silly on my part but hey, it was new to me and I really wanted to try it so I rationalized the purchase until it sort of made sense.
This bath bomb is a mini bomb as the name implies, it's about half of the size of a regular bath bomb so I decided that I needed to use the whole thing rather than split it in two as I do with many bombs. It's also really cute and has little sugar holly leaves and berries set into the end of the bomb.
It made my bathwater look dirty. I don't mind funky colors. I've used Lush bombs that made my bathwater bright yellow or rusty red and they didn't bother me but this was a pale brown. It just looked like dirty water. Also, the smell was pretty lame. I think it was supposed to smell spicy with a hint of cloves and roses if I remember correctly but I didn't smell much of anything. I called my husband in and he shrugged and said that it "sort of" smelled like "something". Not exactly a glowing review.
I thought maybe these awesome essential oils would save the day and make my skin nice and soft but not really. I didn't feel any different than normal when I got out of the tub. I was disappointed and this was one of the few times that I felt like I wasted my money at Lush.
In ClosingI wouldn't buy lil' pud again even during an after Christmas clearance sale if it was half price. The scent was weak and the oils didn't seem to do anything for me.
