Hannah recently turned 8, and I thought this would be a great time to get a few of her "Own" bits. Things that she doesn't have to share with her stinky little brother. And even though her skin is sensitive and she suffers from eczema, Lush have been surprisingly good for her skin.
Butter Ball (£2.45) is a lovely little thing. Full of super moisturising Shea Butter, bits this is the most hydrating of their Bath Ballistics / Bombs. The ingredient list is teeny: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Cocoa Butter, Synthetic Musk, Ylang Ylang Oil, Perfume. Awesome.
When you drop this in the bath, it fizzes like mad and immediately the room and the passage and all down the stairs is filled with a lovely heady vanilla-ry scent... and the scent hangs around for a long time after you are done with the bath. And the scent lingers on your skin after you are done in the bath too... a wonderfully warming, relaxing scent. I have heard tell of Butter Balls that have little scent, we have never had this problem and this is our 10th or 11th one.
Butter Ball contains no glitter, and no colour, the only bit of colour coming from the actual Shea Butter bits, that dissolve in the water, soften it and coat your skin in a lovely envelope of moisture. Just be careful getting out of the bath, it can be super slippy, but at least there is no glitter or colour to try to rinse off the bath.
Hannah and I love Butter Ball so much because her skin feels amazing after her bath and we don't have to drown her in body cream afterwards to rehydrate her skin. And it is one of the few products that doesn't irritate her super sensitive skin.
And as Hannah says: "Also it smells deadly"
I buy my Lush goodies when I am in Newry so I have no idea what the actual Euro price is for this baby, but I can't see it costing more than €3.50, Well worth it if you ask me.
