The Best Bath You'll Ever Take

Monday, August 14, 2006

I woke up today with the nastiest summertime cold. Summertime colds are the worst because you don't even have clouds and rain to comfort you. No, you are stuck sitting on the couch in misery staring out the window at sunshine and happy people heading off to do summertime things. Yuck.

I think may be the combination of the general misery of the summertime sickness and the cold medicine, but my head is so congested that I can't concentrate on anything for more than 5 minutes. All I want to do is take a long, hot bath with one of Lush's Bath Bombs.

Lush's Bath Bombs have achieved cult status for a reason. They are heavenly and so much fun to use that you'll feel like a kid again. Never tried a Bath Bomb? They are kind of like a bath cube-- you know, those fizzy things that scent your bathwater-- but 1000 times better. They don't just fizz, they practically explode, and the scents are amazing. To top it off, some Bath Bombs leave behind little treats, like leaves or flower petals, floating in the water. Like all other Lush products, they are all natural and most are even vegan!

Bath Bombs come in 22 yummy varieties, including the infamous Sex Bomb, but my two favorites are Butterball and Honey Bee. Butterball is super moisturizing and fills your water with little melting slivers of cocoa butter.

Honey Bee smells good enough to eat. According to Lush it smells like "honey mixed with caramelized sugar mixed with a drop or two of sweet orange and bergamot essential oils," but I say it smells like a candy store. Seriously, all of the Bath Bombs are fabulous.
