Invented by Mo Constantine in 1987. The Bath Ballistic is often imitated, but few compare to the original. Still a Lush best seller - with A-list fans including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, Kylie Minogue, Helena Christensen and Sarah Jessica Parker - each one is formulated with the finest ingredients and essential oils to cleanse both the mind and body. Simply drop into a ready run, warm bath and watch as it fizzes around the tub with abandonment, emitting its goodness into the water.
Cinders bath ballistic (£1.95) … drop a Cinders into the tub for that sitting in front of a crackling fire feeling. Made with warming cinnamon leaf oil and sweet orange oil to lift the spirits, the scent is of almonds and cherries for a festive marzipan aroma. Popping candy tops it all off, to emulate that comforting sound of a crackling open fire. Vegan
So White bath ballistic (£1.90) … a pure white slow fizzing ballistic with the scent of apples to epitomise the classic children’s tale. This favourite has not only the deodorizing and aromatherapy benefits of a ballistic, but also shavings of bubble bar in to create a snowy, frothy blanket of white bubbles. Bergamot oil and neroli oil provide the fruity fragrance, along with beautiful rose absolute that works as a good tonic for mature skin, helping to improve its general appearance. Vegan.
Lil’ Lush Pud bath ballistic (£1.95) … a little helping of Christmas Pud heralds the arrival of this wonderful time of year. Pop this classic Lush product into your bath and allow the soothing aloe vera to soften and hydrate dry winter skin. There’s also a dash of clove powder to ward off the cold and a handful of lemon peel to boost sluggish circulation. Fragranced with the best-selling Snowcake marzipan-like scent, it’s a yummy festive soak! Vegetarian.
Satsumo Santa bath ballistic (£2.95) … traditionally children would wake up to find a satsuma in their stocking on Christmas Morning, so this is the perfect alternative! A zingy, fruity bath treat shaped like Santa and scented with oranges. Mandarin oil, bergamot oil and orange blossom absolute are toning for the skin and uplifting for the mind, helping to banish the winter blues and induce feelings of goodwill to all men. Vegan
