SHOP NOW: Don’t Let The Bells End Amazeball, £8.50

One for the Lush bath bomb fan who wants to try something new, their Amazeballs are bath bombs with a twist. Instead of dropping it all straight into the bath, pop the stopper off, and sprinkle out its contents before popping in the rest. The water is left honey coloured with a soothing scent of ylang ylang whilst sweet almond essential oil leaves skin feeling nourished. You won’t want the bath to end!

Hold it under warm running water to unleash plenty of cloud-like bubbles before popping it on the side to dry, ready for your next bath.

Don’t let the demure white and gold fool you, this Lush bath bomb froths and fizzes into a vibrant turquouse blue via a rainbow of shades as soon it comes into contact with water.

Lush bath bombs

SHOP NOW: Cinnamon Orange Bath Oil, £6.95

Not strictly a bath bomb, we just couldn’t leave this gorgeous solid oil off the list. There’s no fizz to speak of, but the skin-loving cocoa butter and deliciously spicy scent more than make up for it. Hang it from your tap (or your tree) and simply break a little off at a time or swish the whole thing in your bath until fully melted. Just be sure to keep it in a cool place to stop it melting before it reaches your tub.
