The Experimenter Gift Set.

Lush The Experimenter Gift Set
With Christmas just around the corner, now is the perfect time to treat yourself. The festive season is notoriously stressful and I like nothing better than a long soak in a Lush bath after a busy day out. After scouring my local Lush shop, I came across The Experimenter Gift Set which contained a variety of old favourites and some bath bombs I haven't tried before. After picking up a few gift sets including the Snow Fairy's Castle and Rosie for family members, I decided to take the plunge and treat myself.

This gift set contains 10 of Lush's popular products and pretty much covers the whole bath bomb basics. It comes brightly packaged with a neon yellow top and big green bow; perfect for those who like to store their bath products away. Although it's an indulgent £43.95 in price, it's a great place to start if you're new to Lush or you want to add a few more to your collection.

One of my favourites from this set is Intergalactic; a bath bomb made up of peppermint, popping candy and neon colours. The refreshing and invigorating scent lifts the mood and although the scent can be a little too overpowering, I like to use it to wake me up in the mornings. Up next is Twilight, a bath bomb opposite to Intergalactic as it has calming and soothing properties that help me drift off at night. This lavender scented offering leaves the bath a dark purple and has shimmer running through it, but it still moisturises the skin - Perfect for this time of year. 

Fun fact of the day: Sex Bomb was the first Lush product I ever owned. With a purple and pink outer with a sensual blend of jasmine, ylang ylang and clary sage on the inside, it's no wonder that this is one I continue to go back to. Another oldie, but a goodie is Yoga Bomb. A slow burner that lasts for a good 10 minutes in the water and creates whirls of purple, orange and blue hues. 

Cyanide Pill and Guardian of The Forest are two bath bombs I haven't tried before, but two that I have stolen my heart with the way they feel and smell on the skin. Cynanide Pill is made up of a concoction of lemon, cedarwood and almond oil, whilst the latter has more of an earthy fragrance, made up of rosewood, lime and cypress oil. 

Lush's simpler looking bath bombs can often be overshadowed, but they make for some of the ultimate soaks. Avobath; a bath bomb that helps hydrate, cleanse and nourish the skin and Dragon's Egg; a bath bomb reminiscent of lemon sherbet which helps to uplift, are two that continue to transform my bath water. Frozen, another bath bomb that some wouldn't look twice at is one of my favourites due to it's uplifting grapefruit and rose scent that leaves my bath a silky blue hue and covers my skin is a soft shimmer. 

If you like vibrant colours and popping candy then you're in for the treat as the vanilla scented The Experimenter is a game changer. Although this bath bomb isn't hydrating or moisturising on the skin, it is perfect for when you want a relaxing bath, especially during the Autumn and Winter season.
