Lush Ceridwen's Cauldron Bath Melt ReviewWednesday, October 23, 2013
Good morning, lovelies!
Today I have another Lush Hallowe'en product: Ceridwen's Cauldron!
This delightful bath melt was provided to me for review.
(This product is in the permanent range, so you can pick it up all year round, and I really believe that you should! XD)
Here is the product description from Lush.ca:
"MAGICAL, RELAXING BATH MELT FOR SOFTER SKINFirst off, this smells wonderful! It has a very calming herbal scent. It is not a spicy scent (like pepper), nor is it a very 'green' scent. It is a bit hard to describe, but trust me when I say that it is very uplifting, yet relaxing and calming.
Here are the ingredients:
Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao) , Whole Oats (Avena sativa) ,Laureth 4 , Walnut Oil (Juglans regia) , Fragrance , Tangerine Oil (Citrus reticulata) , Lavender Oil (Lavandula augustifolia) ,Sandalwood Oil (Santalum austro-caledonicum vieill and Fusanus spicatus) , Frankincense Resinoid (Boswelia carterii) , Rose Absolute (Rosa damascena) , Elderflowers (Sambucas nigra) ,Daisy Flowers (Bellis perennis) , Cowslips (Primula veris) ,*Geraniol , *Limonene , *Linalool - Lush.ca
When you add this to your bath, it gives the water a milky white tinge, with a little bit of foam on the top.
When it melts you are left with a little bag of tied up oats, which you can use to gently buff your skin.
The oats are very creamy (almost slimy, but I honestly don't mean that in a bad way!!), and they are one of the main reasons why the water turns a bit opaque. I picked up the sachet and squeezed out some water when the bath melt was gone and only oats were in it, and this is what the water looked like:
This is one of my favourite bath products from Lush. The water is so soft and almost a bit creamy, and this makes my skin feel wonderful. From the smooth skin to the relaxing scent, what is there not to love? :D (I love how 'soft' this makes my hard water!)
I cut my Ceridwen's into two pieces, and use half of it in one bath.
I wrap half of the cut pieces into the muslin cloth and tie it up again, then put it into my bath. I hold it under the running water as the bath fills up, so that I evenly distribute the oat-y goodness.
Afterwards, I rinse out the oats, let the cloth dry, than re-wrap the remaining bath melt and it is ready to go for bath no.2! :D
Whitish, cloudy water.
Bubbles: A little bit of foam after the tub fills up, but not much, as this is a bath melt.
Water: Cloudy, smooth, and delightfully herbal.
Skin afterwards: Smooth, but not very scented with it (then again I did use some Ro's Argan, and that could have masked anything! XD)
Bathroom scent: It fades after the bath is emptied, but before that the room is scented is a relaxing herbal fragrance (not 'spicy' smelling). While the fragrance is definitely there, it is not oppressive nor cloying.
No staining on the tub.
Would I re-purchase? Yes, and I already have. :) This is probably my favourite bath melt.
Have you tried any of Lush's bath melts before? Which are your favourites?
Have an amazing day!
