I'm a little late on posting this, I had planned to do so much earlier today but I no doubt got distracted by hilarious internet kitties.

I recently got a big Lush order and by big I mean, BIG. I'm not hauling it, it would take me days. But I got pretty much everything Ballistic wise, Retro things and a whole bunch of other stuff. I posted a TwitPic right after I finished checking it all (just to make sure) and bagging it up. Which took forever! So if there's anything in particular you want to see, just let me know and I'll do it, if I've got it.

Anyway, Supernova ...



What www.lush.com says:
Celebrate bath-time with cocktails for one and a ticker tape parade. Supernova is a party explosion in your tub, with refreshing oranges and genuine cognac oil to make it smell like a posh cocktail. Smatterings of fluorescent bubble mixture give it a frothy, pink topping. The paper takes a bit of clearing up afterwards, but it’s definitely fun while it lasts.

Where is my smatterings of frothy pink topping?! :( Infact, why is the Ballistic even white.

Now, I'm sure you've all heard by now that this is on the death list. Or rather, being discontinued. Which is mostly the reason I got it. But really Lush, there is no need to slack on standards, is there?! It could just be my 'monitor' of course, showing it up much more pink on the site but never mind.

The actual Ballistic itself. First off the scent is not something that I genuinely go for. It's kind of hard to describe but it's not really florally or very fruity either. It's somewhere in between that, quite perfume-y. (I'm horrible at describing scents!) It does smell amazing though!

Blogger just decided to mess up so now I can't remember what I said ... ¬_¬

This has 3 kinds of oil in it. Sweet orange, lime and Cognac. Oh, yes! I bathed in Cognac oil. I feel so snobby and posh saying that. ;) Loves it! Anyway, I can definitely tell the difference with having the oils in there. I didn't use a moisturiser after, just a body powder and my skin is soft, silky and still very much hydrated.

And I had no problem with the paper bits afterwards, they pretty much disintegrated and went away with the water.

Definitely one to try before it makes it's way to the Lush graveyard/heaven.
