LUSH Vanilla Fountain Bath Ballistic – Review

One of my all time favourites! This is what the Lush website has to say about it:

A” comforting vanilla scent with natural vanilla absolute – the posh stuff made from vanilla pods – with a touch of restful sandalwood and a note of burnt caramel. It was inspired by the extraordinary desserts at Heston Blumental’s amazing restaurant.”  ( )

And there’s not much more to add to that. Its gorgeous. It smells a bit like crème brulee, a lot like vanilla, and it is just warm and gorgeous smelling. Doesn’t make the bath water go a funny colour, either! And.. it has a real vanilla pod in it.

Vanilla Pod!

With these I break or chop them in half, or thirds, and use them like that. They are $7.50 each, but big enough to break up so it’s not so expensive.

You can buy them online ( for New Zealanders!), or at any Lush store. Check their website for store locations if you don’t know where your nearest one is.  The great bit about their website is all the ingredients are listed there, so you can peruse and choose at your leisure, then go in to a shop and buy later without the postage costs.
