LUSH Holiday Bath Bomb Review: Mr Butterball

One of my favorites. Mr. Butterball is super moisturizing and serene! It's also limited edition so I will need to stock up before it's too late.

I had used this shortly before going to bed one evening, which I think is the best time to use it. The vanilla and ylang ylang scent really aids in relaxation and unwinding before going to sleep.

This bath bomb contains chucks of cocoa butter, a skin softening ingredient. When I got out of the tub and into my PJs, my skin felt so smooth and soft to the touch and I hadn't even used any body moisturizer. I don't believe there are any color dyes added and the water is natural; a bit foggy, but still transparent. If you enjoy bathing in pretty colors, you may not enjoy this one as much.

You can see the oils floating in the water. I like to massage my legs, arms, or any  dry areas to really allow my skin to absorb in the cocoa butter goodness. If you're not a fan of oils or a greasy feeling you may want to steer clear of this one.

The only downfall about this item is that it did leave a little tub residue. As I was laying there, I could see the ring of oil that was developing around the tub. Just be sure to take a rag and wipe it out afterwards to ensure it doesn't collect other grime and to prevent slippage.

If you have dry skin or live in a cooler climate during the winter, I would highly, highly recommend the Mr. Butterball bath bomb. I want to stock up on these and use them during times I want/need that extra skin-quenching, especially throughout  the winter.

I used this for the first time the other day and I though there would be bubbles =( I agree though it is very moisturising. MA Bar is my fave though =) x

@Pyxiee - Yea, Mr Butterball is quite simple, no bubbles lol. You could always add some in though. I will be sure to try Ma Bar next purchase! Thanks xox
