Fly Me To The Moon Amazeball




I'm beginning a very transitional period in my life at the moment so the idea of 'flying to the moon' sounds like a good next step to take. Perhaps a few months up there would be a good opportunity to heal myself enough to feel grounded once more on planet earth, when I return. Unfortunately, nipping to the moon for a vacation just isn't exactly possible at the moment, so the bathe bomb equivalent will have to do.

Fly Me To The Moon Amazeball is not only big in nature but it also happens to be rather large when it comes to the price as well. £8.50 for a single-used item is not exactly something that everybody will willingly want to invest in, let alone afford. For this reason, it needs to offer something rather impressive to convince consumers to part with their hard-earned cash. 

What is rather beautiful about this seasonal special is the gentle hue of lustre that coats the surface and adds a shimmer both before use, and once it's fully dissolved into the water. There is something rather delicately gorgeous about the subtle glimmer across the water during the experience - one that is perhaps more suited to those who dislike too much 'glitter' in their bath tub. 

As with a few other 'Amazeballs' in the Christmas range, this one features a removal lid. Despite it appearing slightly bigger in size than the average bath bomb, it actually happens to be hollow, with just a large dosage of white sugar crystals filling the 'empty' space inside. For this reason, it's a little on the delicate side and does need to be packed well to travel from the factory to your doorstep. If you're thinking of giving this one as a gift, you may wish to think how you're going to preserve it's shape, whilst also ensuring you don't spill its contents as well. 

Containing lime and sweet orange oils as the key ingredients, with a generous helping of olibanum resinoid underneath, this bath bomb is sweet, fruity scent that compliments the Never Mind The Ballistics fragrance nicely. While very similar, and many consumers have claimed that it was purposely designed to replicate the smell, I do feel as if there are some differences that set it apart. 

This bath bomb is perhaps a little less wholesome in scent, as in it smells a little more 'dispersed' than the aforementioned bath bomb, and the most recent Bam! Shower Slime. However, there is something very juicy yet equally as rich and sultry about Fly Me To The Moon that hits the spot without a doubt.

When Fly Me To The Moon first hit the water, I loved the fact that it produced a really thick, creamy foam around the base of the product. As soon as I let it go, it tipped to the side and began to spill its contents out into the water, which create a very fast and expansive white and purple foam that coated the surface of the tub. At the same time, the lid sent out a vibrant shade of purple that interspersed with the wave of white and created a thick blanket of colour.

What is interesting about this bath bomb is that you can actually choose to tip the inner contents of the product into the water first, most notably when the water is still running. Supposedly, the powder has the same properties of a bubble bar so you should be able to stimulate some bubbles before unleashing the bath bomb into the water to add colour afterwards. While I didn't try this out with Fly Me To The Moon, I did experiment with one of the other Amazeballs that Lush are currently offering and found that they do indeed produce some fluffy bubbles to accompany you in the bath tub.

The best part about this bath bomb was just how much creamy foam spread out across the water, which once fully dispersed, helped to create a wonderfully soft and moisturising bathing experience. My skin felt incredibly nourished and smooth after bathing with one of these, and the scent remained on my skin for a short while after towelling myself down. 

This Christmas beauty left the water a beautiful shade of pastel pink, with a gentle lustre hue under the water to add a little luxury to the experience. My mood was elevated and my skin felt simply beautiful afterwards, not to mention the fact that the fragrance was present throughout the whole experience, and stayed on my skin afterwards.

While I'd still maintain that this the price of this is perhaps a little more than I would comfortably hand over for an average bath bomb, the fact that this is limited edition means that it's definitely worth investing in at least once. As a present, this would definitely be a welcome gift, and does help to wash away the cold weather with its beautiful smell and presence.
