I received one of Lush's Think Pink bath bombs as part of a Christmas present which I kept stashed away in a drawer for just under five months. Feeling the need for a relaxing bath, I decided to go ahead and use the product. Think Pink is one of the few Lush bath bombs that I haven't tried before. As soon as I opened the packet, the reasoning behind the product's name couldn't have been clearer. Think Pink is an extremely bright, hot pink bath bomb with a few pastel coloured flowers nestled in the top. It is a slightly smaller bath bomb, which is reflected in its 2.50 GBP price. I'm not sure whether it was because I had kept the product aside for a while, but it didn't fizz as quickly or as fiercely as other bombs have in the past, though I do usually tend to use them straight after purchase, so this was probably my fault. The product barely had to hit the water before it turned everything a lovely shade of pink. In terms of fragrance, I thought that Think Pink had a generally nice smell but sadly there were no notes that really stood out for me. It was a scent that seemed to dissipate quite quickly after I'd actually gotten in the bath. Once the bomb had dissolved a bit more, I was pleasantly surprised to see some tiny pink heart confetti floating in the bath, which I thought was a nice touch. The flowers took the longest to dissolve and kind of floated for a while before breaking up unevenly. Think Pink didn't leave any lingering scent on my skin which was disappointing and neither did it seem to soften my skin at all. When I pulled the plug the confetti went down the drain without a problem, but there was a rim of pink colouring left behind where the watermark had been. It came off fairly easily when I cleaned the bath, but it was just an extra bit of hassle that I would have preferred to have avoided. One of the biggest things I love about Lush is the amazing smell most of their products have, but for me Think Pink lacked any kind of strong smell and was simply something that turned my bath pink. Although this in itself was somewhat enjoyable, I prefer my bath bombs to go the extra mile and leave my skin softened and scented with a lovely Lush fragrance. Because of this, I would not purchase a Think Pink bath bomb for myself, though I still enjoyed receiving it as a gift.
Lush is a company that produces handmade bath and cosmetic products, including but not limited to, 'bath bombs', 'bath melts', face masks, soaps, and fairly new to the brand - cosmetics. Lush are against animal cruelty and testing on animals.
Although however great the brand and company are, it does not change the fact that Think Pink the bath 'bomb' or 'ballistic' is by far not my favourite product. It's not just Think Pink, it's the majority of the bath bombs that I dislike. They're a great fun gift for now an again but they're not exactly practical if you're looking for a genuine bath with bubbles and froth to soak your muscles in.
One bath bomb is simply not enough, in my opinion. If you want a real bath, and I mean a relaxing BUBBLE bath then you have to use 2, even 3 sometimes, to get what you want. Yes it's all "ooooh" and "ahhhh" when it fizzes, but after that it seems you have just coloured water and rarely anything in there. With Think Pink...you have coloured water, and a few petals from the flowers they attach inside it. and even AFTER THREE bath bombs I sometimes add some bubble bath or shower gel quickly in because it just doesn't do the job for me. However, Think Pink has a lovely scent where it's quite floral and after your body really does feel smooth and silky.
I like how some of them have glitter inside or little fancy bits and bobs - like the flower petals in Think Pink and most of the scents are pleasant, and after your bath you may get some glittery sheen to your skin after.
At £2.50-£3.99 I would recommend using Lush Bath Bomb's like Think Pink for a special occasion, maybe even for Mother's Day just before a nice meal in the evening, the special lady will be smelling lovely and fresh!

Positives; smooths skin, add a glittery sheer, fun to put in the bath, pleasant smell.
Negatives; doesn't provide bubbles and too expensive.
Lush THINK PINK Bath Bomb
Bath ballistics are not my favourite product from Lush despite my true addiction to Lush. In my humble opinion these are a fun product and apart from giving off a little scent they soften the water and give a fun fizz as they dissolve but that is about the extent of it. I had this one as part of my gifts for my birthday and I decided to use it just before Christmas over a couple of nights.
WHAT DOES THIS LOOK LIKE?
This is another of the rather more plain bath bombs that are round and a bit smaller than a tennis ball. It does however have small flowers around the outside sort of pushed into the ball. They look a bit like icing flowers and they are different colours and the actual ballistic is a deep pink.
I popped this into my T-shirt drawer for a week or so that I got a bit of a drawer freshener benefit from it before using it in my bath. It did have a lovely sweet creamy sweetie scent which comes from the combination of vanilla and neroli, lavender and tonka so it had a lot of promise for a good scent.
DOES IT SMELL GOOD?
Yes indeed a lovely sweet orange creamy aroma with just a hint of lavender a sweet and creamy balance. It is a really lovely pretty colour and with the flowers and all these lovely oils in it I had high hopes for this one.
WHAT LUSH SAY:
"Red is dead, blue is through, green's obscene and brown's taboo.
We wouldn't presume to tell a woman
What a woman ought to think,
But tell her if she's gotta think, Think Pink!."
"Mark was so pleased with himself when he hit on this combination of tonka and vanilla absolutes - he thinks this smell is like a great big reassuring hug!"
INTO THE BATH:
As these ballistics are not cheap I think to just get one bath from it is VERY expensive so being a cheap skate I break mine into at least two. They are actually quite hard to break and I have to put them in a plastic bag and them either bang them with a rolling pin or drop them hard onto the ceramic tiled floor. I don't think I am alone as I see on Ebay people selling crushed up ones in bulk deals.
I got about half of this ballistic as it was smaller than average size, I think they must be shrinking or my eyes are deceiving me and dropped it into the bath away from the running tap I find allows it to fizz slowly and release the scents best. This is was beautiful clear pretty pink colour not cloudy at all. As more water went into the bath the colour was actually a very pale barely noticeable pink in the bath.
The smell given off was gently sweet and creamy. The effect in the end was subtle and gentle in fact rather too gentle for me as I do like quite string smells. I actually would have preferred the scent to be a little stronger as this became extremely subtle.
I do enjoy the soothing effect of watching the ballistic fizz its way around the bath and the water turning the lovely gentle pink colour while at the same time giving off the slightly sweet scent, mildly orange and a bit of a creaminess of vanilla coming from the tonka. I quite liked the bits of confetti that floated around in the water and they actually ended up sort of dissolving away so there was no nasty sludge to clear out after the bath.
As I get in I do enjoy the feeling of softness in the water and lie back to enjoy the comfortable and soothing id somewhat subtle scents of the creamy sweetness. As this is really only scented water I do use soap as well but lie and enjoy the bath for a few minutes before I get around to the washing and cleaning business of the bath. I chose a lovely handmade vanilla soap I have which was made by my friend in Australia with goat's milk to use with this bath as it complimented the aroma of the bath bomb in this case.
AFTER THE BATH:
Once again as with all these sort of products I make sure that I rinse the bath out after I have used it as sometimes there are bits of product or a bit of a greasy or colour residue in the bath if ,I forget. This one I found left very little in the way of greasiness or colour residue in the bath so it needed very little cleaning and in fact all I had to do was swill out the bath with hot water after it had emptied so this was not a problem in this case.
WHAT DO I THINK THEN?
This was a nice enough sweet rather too subtly scented sweet girly pink bath bomb. It was a pleasant sort of scent and I enjoyed it in my bedtime bath but it is not one that is so great that I am going to buy it again. The scent didn't really stay on my skin but neither did my skin didn't feel nasty and tight at all. I chose a vanilla body lotion which worked with the scent of the bath bomb and left me smelling lovely and creamy and sweet.
I noticed that when I went down stairs and then came back up that the scent was noticeable but not as strong as some Lush bombs are, which was disappointing.
ARE THERE ANY UNPLEASANT INGREDIENTS?
Surely not, this is Lush after all but you might be surprised to find that Lush, although I am one of their biggest fans is not perfect. This one seems to not have any of the nasty ingredients found in some of their products which I am pleased to see. There are no bubbles so there is no need for any surfactants and the sodium bicarbonate is for softening water and is good for calming skin too. So top marks Lush.
This is a pretty pink very girly bath bomb and a bit of fun to have a nicely scented bath. If you have any skin problems then you should be alright with this one but test first if unsure. I do have sensitive skin and some patches of eczema and I had no problems so obviously these aren't the ingredients I am allergic too.
I quite liked this but not sure I would rush to buy it again as it is expensive for what you get and I actually prefer bubble bars to bath ballistics.
So I would recommend if you like pretty pink subtle smelling scents. This is very pretty and would make a nice gift for anyone girly with its colour and little pretty flowery. These are great if you are happy with scented water softening baths rather than a bath of bubbles and if you don't mind cleaning your bath after you have got out as well.
Thanks for reading. This review may be posted on other sites under my same user name.
I've had the 'Think Pink' bath bomb in my stash for about a month now and after a particularly stressful week I thought I would treat myself to a long relaxing bath with some lush products.
The 'Think Pink' cost £2.45 each and each bath bomb in around 90g. You may think this is expensive for just one use, but this is one of the cheaper bath bombs from Lush and the relaxing and lush bath it creates are great for a special treat every now and again.
The bath bomb itself is a shocking pink colour, with 3 coloured flower designs in the top. The bomb is about the size of a tennis ball and smells like Vanilla. It's ingredients include:-Lavender Oil, Vanilla and Tonka Oil. As mentioned it does smell close to a Vanilla fragrance. To use you simply pop it into your bath. As soon as it hits the water it begins to fizz. As it fizzes it emits the shocking pink all through your bath. You would expect the colour to dilute in a full bath to a candy colour but it manages to turn your whole bath the same deep shocking pink.
It fizzes away in around 4-5 minutes and as it disolves pink confetti hearts appear in your tub. I though this was a nice little extra as it really makes your bath feel luxurious. The vanilla fragrance stays in the bath and doesn't seem to fade at all. It makes the water feel soft (I live in a hard water area) and silky. It really does relax you. The bath bombs do not give any bubbles which would be a nice addition, but I know the bubble bars are there for that job, but if the think pink did that would be the ultimate bath.
After relaxing in the bath for around 45 minutes I felt much calmer and chilled out. When i got out and dried off I noticed my skin felt very soft without the need of any mosituriser. My skin felt soft for over 24 hours later until I had to have a shower. The pink water disappears from your bath and didn't stain my bath at all. All the confetti was left but these showered off easily afterwards.
Think Pink is great for a treat when your feeling stressed out or tired. It is just the job!
Every few months, I make the 6 hour journey to see my boyfriend, and anyone that travels by trains, it is really boring and incredibility stressful, thing, therefore I have my usual day before beauty list, which includes having a nice relaxing bath, with wine and chocolates, how perfect! And as most of you will know, I adore Lush products, as they are ethically sourced, good for the planet and good for communities who source the materials, which I am very interested in regarding my beauty products. And also the products are amazing! So in my local Lush shop I was looking for a new bath bomb to use, and was recommended to use the Think Pink Bath Ballistic, which seemed good to me.
Think pink is a ball, which is roughly the size of my cupped hands, which is the usual size of Lush's bath bombs, and on the pink ball there are coloured flowers on, and it looks really girly! The first thing I noticed about the bath bomb was the smell, it was really sweet, like a perfume, and with a hint of vanilla I think. The smell is really pleasing for me, but was also quite strong.
To use the bath bomb, you place it under running taps, and it begins to dissolve. I personally find that part running the bath first, then dissolving it under the hot tap makes it much easier to dissolve, and usually dissolves it all in the bath, as you really don't want the sandy feel to the bath! The bath bomb takes roughly 5-10 minutes to dissolve, depending on the strength and temperature of the bath. The first thing that I noticed was the bath turned pink, which I loved, and soon the whole bathroom was filled with the smell of the bath bomb, which again I loved, but if you hate strong smells, then I would open a window or door. The smell is very sweet, with I think a hint of vanilla, which makes it sweeter, but the smell is very girl and romantic, perfect for the girly girls or the joint baths with the loved one.
Using the bath bomb was really relaxing, and with the added scent, was perfect for me, as I was completely relaxed afterwards, but also I noticed that my skin felt softer, which was a different effect form a bath bomb, was really pleasant. I would highly recommend the Think Pink bath bomb for really girly girls, that want to relax and spoil yourself, or for couples, as it is really romantic and relaxing.
Buying the Think Pink bath bomb will cost you £2.50 and you can get is from your local Lush store or online at lush.co.uk. Also the Think Pink bath bomb is in the Think Pink hatbox.
Lush is a cosmetic company which offer fresh beauty treats such as bath bombs, shower gels and face masks. They are against animal testing and aim to reduce or eliminate excessive packaging on their products.
Lush offer a range of Bath Ballistics which are basically bath bombs. A bath ballistic is made up of sodium bicarbonate and other ingredients and once popped into a bath of hot water, it should fizz around leaving the water scented and coloured. Lush have an extensive range of ballistics which comes in different shapes, sizes, colours, smells and price ranges.
Think Pink is just one of these bath ballistics that Lush offer. This one has apparently been altered to be slimmer in appearance and is one of the smaller ballistics coming in at only 90g. It is one of the sweet ones which will remind you of pink bon bons with its blend of tonka bean and vanilla absolute playing the starring roles in the ingredients.
This almost perfectly round ballistic is hot pink in colour inkeeping with its title. 3 pretty looking flower designs sit confidently on the top of the ballistic adding a bit of something different to the shocking pink colour! The Lush website also comments that there will be pink heart confetti inside the ballistic.
Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Lavender Oil (Lavandula angustifolia), Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata), Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara), *Limonene, *Linalool, Pink Heart Confetti, Colour 45410, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Candy Flowers

Currently available from Lush stores or www.lush.co.uk priced at £2.50 for 90g.
Lush is going high up in my expectations but thankfully for my bank balance, the nearest shop is quite far away! On our last trip to Lush, my sister treated me to the Space Girl ballistic and bought Think Pink for herself. She decided that she didn't want it so gave it to me. On Friday night, I had the house to myself so decided to have a Lush bath and Think Pink was my victim!
This ballistic came in the yellow paper bag. It is just a nice size and if it wasn't for the candy flowers on top, it would be quite boring shape wise..I suppose they give it a bit of texture. The colour is wow! I love pink and this is very pink! The scent is quite strong within the bag and delightfully fragranced my bathroom with sweetness that is so indulgent!
*~*Pink Pink Baby!*~*
I tend to use my ballistics in one bath as I imagine it would be awkward and a messy chore to cut them into pieces! Waiting til my bath is half full its time for me to think pink. The clear water was immediately converted as this ballistic hit the bottom of my bath. I can't say that the pink was intense as the ballistic itself but it came through fast and quite strong.
Everything dissolved fairly quickly including the candy flowers that adorned the top of the ballistic. Through the mass of pinkness filling my bath, a small, yellow splodge of colour skimmed the bottom of the bath. The smell was almost not existant with only a faint trace of sweet vanilla giving off hints in the water. A far cry from a gorgeous aroma that welcomed me through the paper bag and very disappointing really.
As the bath filled further, the pinkness spread and became quite pale with a slight milky top on the surface. No bubbles of course but I wouldn't expect any. If you want bubbles go for a bubble bar or add some bubble bath in for extra effects! The last ballistic I had offered a little firework explosion in my bath..Think Pink offered something extra too. As the ballistic dissolved, a soft flow of little lilac and baby pink paper hearts seeped out and there was certainly a good amount of them as they managed to float randonmly around my bath. They could clearly be seen through the pale pink water and made it look very appealing and girly.
*~*Indulge Me In Pink*~*
Stepping into the water, I lay down and tried to get into a relaxing mode. Personally, I couldn't and I don't really relax when there is no bubbles. The water was hot, pink and laced with hearts so very girly and appearance wise suited my personality and expectations. The smell as I said, was non existant and I could only sense a soapy aroma which is highly annoying considering tonka bean and vanilla should have been so much more apparent as indulgent for me.
The water didn't particularly feel brilliant. Fair enough it wasn't greasy or oily but I expected the water to be soft and comforting. Sadly it wasn't to be. I only spent 15mins or so in the water before I got bored. By this time the pink was very pale and the little paper hearts were starting to dissolve into a pit of nothingness! I washed myself down knowing there was no chance of any scent being on my skin and got dried. applied a body lotion as my skin felt quite dry but not irritated and hopped into my PJs.
Once the bath water had ran away, a light pink rim was left around the bath and a few random hearts sitting at the base. I figured the experience hadn't been relaxing and gave the bath a spray with cleaner and put my marrigolds on. A few mins of scrubbing and the bath was shiny clean again. I however wasn't all that pleased!
This ballistic could have been so much better and to be honest, with this experience and previous experiences, I have been put of using them. They make a great entrance but the finished product isn't very desirable. The scent is delicious and succulently sweet but when it makes contact with water, it seems to evaporate which is not good as Lush stores smell so strongly and I believe in practice, their products should too.
£2.50 for one bath is alot of money to pay out and I expected much better results. As I didn't have a good experience with this one, I cannot recommend it to you and I will not be purchasing it in the future.
Thanks for reading :)
I had never had anything from Lush before so when we recently went shopping I decided to get some of their products because I had heard so many good reviews on dooyoo! I went straight for the bath ballistics, I love my baths and love to spend a relaxing evening having a bath and reading a book so I imagined these would be good for me!
I picked this one up straight away. I'm a very girly girl who loves pink and flowers so this seemed like my perfect ballistic. I bought this one and another balistic (review to follow) and paid about £2 for each one.
To use the ballistic, you crumble it under warm running water. After reading a great deal of reviews on these I understood that a lot of people cut their ballistic in half because £2 for one bath is rather pricey! Therefore I took their advice and set about cutting my ballistic in half.
This was harder than I thought! I finally got through it with a vegetable knife but I did get a lot of powder from the ballistic all over the kitchen work top, I then promptly dropped one half!
I went to run my bath and began crumbling the half of the ballistic under the warm running water. I was pleased to see it immediately turned a lovely bright pink colour and a lovely floral aroma filled the room. The bath looked and smelled very inviting so I couldn't wait to get in.
The bath water was a lovely bright pink colour, I was worried that using only half of it would make it a dull colour but it didnt. There were no bubbles but the scent of this ballistic is absolutely lovely - the website tells me that it contains tonka and vanilla which provided a lovely sweet smell.
The scent remained throughout the bath and I was led there for quite some time thinking to myself how wonderful the smell was and how much I was enjoying my pink bath!
When I got out the smell lingered both in the air and on my skin, you can still smell it on my skin now and I've been out the bath over 2 hours.
I was a bit worried the product may leave the bath with pink bits but it didnt it all went down the plug with the water.
I loved loved loved my first experience with a bath ballistic! If only I could afford to have one in my bath every day. I will certainly be buying ballistics again and cant wait to try the rest of the range.
The Lush Think Pink Bath Ballistic is very girly and sweet . It is (suprisingly) pink and has pretty flowers on the top in different colours. The smell reminded me of Parma Violets sweets and was not overpowering at all. Lush have reduced the size of the Think Pink Bath Ballistic to 90g, as this is only the second Bath Ballistic I have used from Lush, I don't know how much of a difference there is. I'd ordered Think Pink from the internet along with other products, and when arrived it was loose in the box so I had to find something to store it in.
At first I was reluctant about using the bath ballistic, as it is just soo pretty. As soon as I dropped it into the bath it began to fizz straight away and released pink heart confetti (which I hadn't expected, though plesantly suprised) into the water, which had turned into a warm pink colour. The confetti easily dissolves inbetween your fingers, when you touch it. The sweet smell of candy filled the room, and the colour of the water made my bathtime more pleasant and very relaxing. The downsides of the Think Pink Bath Ballistic was that it stained my bath slightly afterwards! Also the smell didn't last on my skin, so the only reminder I had of my bath was the stains that were left afterwards! If it hadn't stained my bath I would have definately brought this again.
Lush's Bath Ballistics are only available in one size and the prices range from £1.95 to £3.20. Think Pink Bath Ballistic is £2.30 and is suitable for vegans.
Ingredients include Tonka Absolute and Vanilla Absolute. According to Lush, the fragrance lasts long on the skin ages after having a bath. Another ingredient is Neroli oil which is suppose to improve your sense of well-being. The wamth pink colour in the bath probably gives off happy thoughts on it own alone.
Maybe a reduction in size included a reduction in smell. Loses two stars from me :(
This is a cute pink bath ballistic which has been downsized by Lush it is £2.90 for a 100g ballistic. Although I like Lush products I have them as gifts or buy them online as a treat as I can not handle the smell of the shop all that sweetness tends to make everything blend into one smell in my opinion.
I received my bath ballistic in the yellow Lush bag with ingreidients sticker on to let you know whats in it before you hop on in the bath and find you have an allergy.
This ballistic contains: Sodium Bicarbonate, Citric Acid, Perfume, Lavender Oil (Lavandula angustifolia), Tonka Absolute (Dipteryx odorata), Vanilla Absolute (Vanilla planifolia), Neroli Oil (Citrus aurantium amara), *Limonene, *Linalool, Pink Heart Confetti, Colour 45410, Colour 14700, Colour 17200, Candy Flowers
The ballistic is a bright pink colour with cute little flowers stuck in it, it smells of vanilla and stawberrys which is sort of what you would expect from a girly bath ballistic. The smell is a little like bon bons those hard sweets you can get from old fashioned sweet shops. The smell is nice and not overpowering.
As soon as this ballistic hits the water it fizzes up turning the water a lovely cute pink colour and releasing the smell of sweet shop into the air and in my case throughout my flat, this is because my flat is small though lol. I also got a nice suprise when I dropped the ballistic in I found that confetti in the form of little pink and white hearts were released and floated round my bath quite a nice added extra. The flowers also come away from the ballistic and are slower to melt than the rest of the ballistic they do sink to the bottom of your bath though so no magic floating flowers boo.
Once in the bath I relaxed and swished the water around to keep my little hearts floating entertaining for a while. The smell was lovely and once I had finished my bath the scent lingered on my skin so I felt clean.
Quick hint though make sure you rinse the bath straight after you get out or you may find the confetti gets stuck and will be harder to remove.
5 stars for this magical bath ballistic.
Think Pink is one of my favourite ballistics from the Lush range. It is a brilliant girly bright pink with little candy flowers embedded into it. The ballistics used to be larger than they are now (it is now 90g instead of 200g). They cost £2.30 instead of £3.30 which they used to.
The scent is gorgeous. it is a mixture of vanilla and tonka beans. It is very similar to Creamy Candy. It is a really girly scent so I don't recommend you give it to your husband or boyfriend!
Once popped into the bath, it instantly started fizzing away leaving the flowers floating on the top of the water and turning the water a bright pink. It is the ideal girly girl bath. When you look closer into the bath, you will notice little white and pink confetti hearts which are a nice touch and not as annoying as glitter can be! Also, they don't stick to every part of your anatomy either! The sugar flowers do eventually sink to the bottom of the bath and dissolve just like the ballistic.
I felt lovely and soft after using this ballistic as I do each time I use it. I always pop one in the bath when I want to feel girly and have a girly pamper session. The scent is very strong both in and out of the bath. It lingered on my skin for a long time afterward and my husband always comments on it when I have used it.
My skin also always feels softer too. I definately recommend this ballistic if you want to have a girly bath and pamper or if you have a little girl who loves baths (mine does! Especially Lush ones!)
Although I haven't done many reviews of Lush products I absolutely love them for a number of reasons.
Firstly when kept in your bathroom the odours seep out and make the bathroom smell lovely without having to do anything!
The first time I experienced Lush was as a gift from my friend it was a box of Lush goodies about 5 or 6 in a box the first one was so nice that I decided to save the rest for a special ocassion when I really needed it the trouble was I always saved it!! hee!! Anyway I did have the occassions to need them and thoroughly enjoyed them all.
This one was one of my favourite, it's very pretty with the little flowers on, I put it in my bath and watched it gradually melt into the water it's quite mezmerizing to watch these bath ballistics because they just fizz away and the water is filled with an amazing amount of smell! I usually can't help but have a feel as well cause it's all squidgy and smooth!
The little flowers on the side don't actually melt properly but I quite like them floating around and then towards the end I squish them down! I have to say the feeling in the water is amazing, we live in a hard water area and I know it sounds silly to say but the water does feel hard! i've been to other places where it's soft and I can notice a difference so this bath ballistic really does alter the softness of the water I find.
Being as I had mine in a pack I wasn't sure how much they were individually i've looked online and I see that they are £2.30 for 90g. I see the colour has changed slightly from this picture here in the review.
I guess for one bath it's quite expensive but as a gift and a one off when you feel you just need it, it's lovely. I did have one of the ballistics which I was able to break in half and got two baths out of it, half is plenty really! Unfortunately this one I couldn't seem to break - I guess I could've got a knife to it!
Think Pink has quickly become one of my favourite bath ballistics that Lush have to offer. I was disappointed when they reduced the size of this bath ballistic, however I recently brought one the other day because I have always been a fan of it.
It is a small bath bomb which is bright pink in colour, and has cute little pink flowers on the top of it. You can always rely on Lush to have aesthetically pleasing products. I often choose my bath bombs based on the way they look, because as all Lush products are handmade, I'd rather buy one with more character.
The fragrance of this particular bath ballistic is edgy tonka bean and sweet vanilla. It reminds me of sweets, and Lush say that they will remind you of pink bon-bons which I totally agree with! The smell is very sweet and girly, which is perfect for me.
You can pick up this bath ballistic in Lush stores or online at www.lush.co.uk. This bath ballistic retails for £2.30 which is quite expensive, yet still one of the cheaper bath ballistics they offer. I use a whole bath ballistic within my bath therefore costing me £2.30 for the bath, however I'm sure there are ways in which you can cut these bath bombs up or break them so that you can get more baths for your money.
To use this, you simply have to drop it into your bath once it has been filled with water. You can watch as it dissolves into the water, and in total this takes about two minutes. The bath fills up with a lovely, pink colour, and obviously the less water in your bath, the stronger the pink is. Once the bath ballistic had completely dissolved, I picked up the little flowers which were originally on top of the ballistic. These took a considerable amount of time to dissolve, and I actually found these quite annoying in the bath, but once they are dissolved there is no problem.
The scent in the bath becomes far more subtle, but it is nice and relaxing, rather than overpowering the bathroom. After my bath, I was able to still smell the sweet, vanilla scent on me, but perhaps not as much as other bath ballistics I have used.
I do feel that this is a great bath ballistic to try out, particularly if you are new to Lush as it is a very fun addition to your bath, and this delivers a colour change and a lovely scent for a reasonable price. One star has to be knocked off because it is not exceptional, but still a very good product which I'd be happy to repurchase. Thanks for reading.
The 'Bunty' gift set was recently added to my collection of Lush products, and I am very impressed with it.
The gift tag gave the following information, alongside cute little drawings of the products:
Think Pink Bath Ballistic: Bathe in sweet, fragrant pinkness with an explosion of confetti hearts.
100g Creamy Candy Bath Bubble Bar: Scented sweetly with vanilla and stashed with almond oil and cocoa butter to really soften you and keep your bath water creamy.
100g Pop In The Bath Bubble Bar: Melt your troubles in mounds of bubbles.
The 'Think Pink' bath ballistic was the first one I had to try. With the bright pink colours, and cute little flowers attached, it seemed perfect to have in a bath to get ready for a night out. I ran the hot water and then popped the ball in - it immediately began fizzing and releasing the most gorgeous smells. I could definitely pick out the vanilla scents, and there seemed to be sweet strawberry smells too, although I don't think that is something Lush claim to have added.
My whole bathroom smelt delicious, and my skin was fragranced lightly too. It took around 10 minutes for the ball to completely dissolve, and the flowers floated around in the water for ages too. However, these flowers did sink to the bottom eventually, but all it took was a quick rinse with the shower head afterwards to get rid of that. I would recommend this if you like sweet, girly smells, and if you enjoy long, hot baths! The water was turned a lovely pink too, and just added to the effect of luxury.
According to the website, the box set costs £12.50, but for an individual bath ballistic, it will set you back only £2.30 for 90g. I have used different types of these before, and you can actually get two baths out of most, so you can get more for your money. I, however, decided that I would just go for it and dunk the whole thing in!!
Normally after a long day I tend to soak in the bath with bubbles, which I really enjoy and find that it relaxes me a bit. For my Christmas this year, my little sister had bought me a gift set from Lush which contained a few different bath ballistics. Before starting to write reviews on here I had never heard of Lush but after reading many reviews on here, I was looking forward to trying them out. Now that I have used them, I thought I would share with you my experience with them.
Lush invented the ballistic and they also make some of the best bath ballistics around. They have a wide range of colours and scents, all with fun and original names.
What is a bath ballistic?
For those of you that don't it something that's dropped into your bath and immediately fizzes as it reacts with the water and releases colour, smells and sometimes little extras to float in your bath (like this one). This mini "explosion" in the bath, the bath ballistics are often referred to as a bath bomb.
My experience & opinion
I have to be honest once I opened the gift box I was so pleased to see that this beautiful bath ballistic was pink. I am a very girlie girl so I thought this was great, especially as it had a pretty detailed design of flowers and hearts. In my opinion compared to the other ballistics, it is a quiet a big one (not being rude) and I couldn't help but wonder, once it was in my bath would it turn my bath pink? Simple answer is yes it did, it was kind of like a princess pink.
Lush describe the scent as smelling like vanilla but having more of an edge to it. I'm not too sure really how to describe the smell of it but whatever it is, it smells good and has a sweetness smell from it. It contains Sweet Vanilla and Lavender which gives a relaxing fragrance, just what your needing after a long day.
Once I dropped the ballistic ball in the bath it started fizzing straight away, and completely dissolved within a few minutes. I was pleasantly surprised to see little confetti heats and flowers floating in my bath water, as you couldn't see them hidden in the ball. Within 10 minutes or so the floating heart confetti had sunk to the bottom of the bath which was a little disappointing.
Over all opinion on the bath bomb is that it has a great smell that isn't too strong and last for the time your in the bath for a long soak. It left my skin feeling very smooth and soft to touch, which I thought was great especially as my skin sometimes can get quite dry , it left them moistured and I noticed that they were not just as itchy. The only thing that I can fault with this particular product is that the confetti hearts stuck to the bottom of the bath a took about 5 minutes to remove, but over all I would rate this ballistic ball a 4 out of 5 and would highly recommend that you try it.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review, it is very much appreciated. I hope it is of some use to you, thanks again.
Think Pink is a bath ballistic from Lush. Ballistics are based on sodium bicarbonate and citric acid which, when added to water, fizz for an explosive bath time.
This particular ballistic is bright pink with sugar flowers on top, like the ones you might buy to decorate cakes with. It used to be about the size of a cricket ball, but recently Lush has slimmed them down a bit. It's still plenty for a bath though and it makes it cheaper (£2.30 compared to the old £3.30). I no longer feel I should try and break this in half to get an extra bath out of it to improve its value.
The scent is a gorgeous vanilla and tonka, which is one of my absolute faves. It's a bit like creamy candy and is a very pink, fluffy and relaxing smell. Unlike some ballistics it doesn't lose any of the scent when you use it- it's still good and strong when dissolved.
Once you pop it in the bath it immediately starts fizzing and turns the bath water bright pink and slightly cloudy. You'll notice little pink and white confetti hearts being released which float around your bath. They do tend to sink to the bottom after a while so I like to stir the water around a bit to get them floating again. The sugar flowers sink to the bottom and slowly dissolve during your bath. After about 20 minutes they seemed to be gone. It's a very girly bath and makes a fab treat for all lovers of pink.
My skin felt lovely and soft after using this. It stayed smelling sweet, but the scent wasn't overpowering and wouldn't interfere with your perfume.
The downside to this ballistic is the mess. The confetti hearts need to be cleaned up before they dry and stick to your tub, and I did have a slight pink ring left behind. Nothing that can't be taken care of by making sure you rinse your tub out after your bath though.
