Fireball Bath Bomb

As part of my healing and transformation, I've recently began to engage in lots of research about the Ayurvedic way of living. In its simplest terms, this ancient lifestyle follows the theory that there are three different energies that a body can harvest, and depending on the one you most associate with, there are certain choices you can make regarding the foods you eat and the way you conduct your life. 

While it's far more complex than that, my research has led me to the understanding that I can relate to the energy Vata. This not only means that I need to eat wholesome, hearty meals to sustain and nourish my body, but that the spices I should be focused on are the more warming varieties. This means that an abundance of cinnamon is considered extremely beneficial to sustain and improve my mood and a natural balance within my body.

On paper, Fireball Bath Bomb appears to be the perfect remedy after a long day of work. Sharing its scent with the Cinders range, this warm, spice collaboration of cinnamon and orange oil make this one of the most Christmasy fragrances available from the range this year. After a rather frosty day at work, I couldn't wait to share the bath tub with this exclusive beauty.

What I will say is that both the orange and the cinnamon work in perfect unison, with neither one of them stealing the limelight over the other. The former ingredients brings about a warm, fruity note to the mix; whilst the latter adds a little spice to bring back the feeling in those frozen toes. Although not as complex as Cinders Shower Gel from last year's range, this bath bomb is extremely beautiful and a perfect balance of warmth and spice.

Making its debut in the 2019 Christmas range, this bath bomb is simply adorable to look at, and reminds me a little of the classic Mario game I used to play when I was a child. Not only do the vivid shades of yellow, orange and red make it stand out in the rather comprehensive collection this year, but the smell itself is exactly on par with the original Cinder Bath Bomb, which happened to be available during the very first Christmas that I got into Lush. This only served to intensify how excited I was about using this for the first time in the bath.

While a little smaller than the average sized bath bomb, Fireball does exactly as you would expect it to do. Upon contact with the water, the array of fiery colours shoots out across the surface of the tub, as the crackle of the popping candy can be heard alongside this. As the yellows and oranges and reds bubble and swirl around the water, a wonderful shade of orange begins to form underneath - which ultimately represents the colour you are left with. 

Although a little on the smaller side than other bath bombs (but not by much) this bath bomb performed for just as long as a regular version would - probably lasting close to a little under two minutes before it simmered away to nothing. Having said that, the wonderful fragrance didn't dissipate much at all, and I was able to smell the wonderful warming smell of cinnamon and orange throughout the whole experience. 

What I will say is that I wasn't then able to smell the product on my skin once I had towelled myself down. However, what it lacked in lasting smell, it more than made up for in how it left the condition of my skin. As I tend to take less baths now than I once did, I really notice when a bath bomb moisturises my skin more than most, and Fireball certainly did this: leaving my body feeling really soft and smooth to the touch.

As a word of warning, I should point out that there may be a small chance that the bath bomb will stain your tub, but this is only if you allow the water to drain away and forget to give the bath a little rinse down afterwards. I found that some of the yellow colour remained on the base of my tub afterwards, and had I not noticed it, would probably have left a lasting mark for me to scrub the following day. However, a quick rinse and wipe down afterwards and it wasn't a problem at all. 

Overall, this is a wonderful release from Lush and definitely a step up from the already beautiful Cinders, which still holds a place in my heart to this day. This is definitely one you should invest in if you're looking for warming smells, and I can only hope that I manage to get my hands on another one or two before the season is out. This will definitely ignite the fire after a day braving the cold.

  2. طرق كشف تسريب المياه

    تتعدد طرق الكشف عن تسربات المياه ما هو يدوي، وحتى نتأكد من ذلك نقوم بإغلاق كافة المصادر التي تمد المنزل بالمياه من محابس وحنفيات مع إعطاء كافة أفراد المبنى بعدم استعمال المياه نهائياً في الفترة الزمنية التي تُغلق فيها المصادر في خطوة لتحديد قراءة العداد ورصدها ويُفضل أن يستمر الحال على هذا النحو مدّة تصل إلى خمس ساعات وبعد مضي الفترة يتم قراءة العداد مرة أخرى، ففي حال تطابق اقراءة الاولى والثانية يكون المنزل خالياً من التسريبات، وفي حال وجود فارق بينهما فإنّ ذلك يدل على مقدار المياه المتسربة ويستدعي الأمر الاستعانة بشركات كشف تسربات المياه لإصلاح المسألة بصورة سريعة كي لا تتفاقم المشكلة.
