Day 22: Benefit Star Charm Necklace
This is cute, but the chain is flimsy. It isn't a solid chain. Also, it is too little for me. I'm going to see if my cousin wants it.
Lush's Cinders Bath Bomb
This seems like a fun one. The website says, "Heat up your holidays with this sweet and spicy bomb inspired by fireside gatherings with family and friends. We combine crackling vegan candies with stimulating cinnamon leaf oil to recreate the warmth of the hearth. This spicy soak also has hydrating almond oil to keep your skin super soft and smooth. With a bathtub so inviting you can skip the open fire and curl up with this fizzer instead. Cinders contains vegan popping candies to make your tub sound like a crackling fire."
Review: This turned the bath a pastel yellow, which is kind of gross to look at, but the product was nice smelling and everything. It sunk to the bottom and little bubbles came up. I had trouble hearing it crackle. It didn't feel like a fireplace to me. The product did soften my skin, like the other bath bombs have done. I wouldn't repurchase this though. Maybe I was expecting fireworks. I was expecting too much I guess.
