My daughter took the opportunity to invest some of her Christmas money in the exploration of some Lush bath bombs. Alas, we couldn't all climb into the tub with her! But, we did get to watch the wonderful fizzies tumble around the tub as they produced marvelous fragrances and beautiful colors. We also got to enjoy the aroma seeping into the hall when she kicked us out to enjoy her private indulgence with Pheonix Rising one night and then Twilight the next. Will I be making some bath bombs? Nah. I have no urge to do something that Lush has done with such perfection already!
A Parsley Porridge soap sample was thoughtfully included with the nonpariel bath bombs. Aha! My daughter agreed to share it! Of course I lathered up with it this morning! The lather is remarkably similar to my own Castile soaps, and the scent is very herbaceously pleasing if you enjoy Tea Tree and similar scents. I emerged from the bath just as satisfied as I have been when using my own soap. Parsley Porridge does contain more synthetics than my rustic soap formulations and Lush lets you know what they are and that they are deemed safe. This soap also contains fragrance-which could be-what? Something that smells good in this case! This soap does not produce an overwhelmingly synthetic sneeze inducing overhang whch can happen when the mysterious fragrance additive comes into play. So, will I use it again? Definitely! Parsley Porridge has equal merit amongst the Crafted Herbals soap test samples festooning the tub, and I'm hoping someone will gift me with some fabulous Lush bath bombs.
