Lush is a fun, eco-friendly, not-too-overpriced bath product company originally out of the UK. I am a Lush fangirl. (Lushie? Lushite? Lushuginah? I'm a lush for Lush.) Bath bombs (supposedly a Lush invention) are unsoapy spheroids of fizzy fun that you drop in your bathwater to scent it and you, and possibly to make your skin nicer/more moisturized/more glittery. Mr. Butterball is the Holiday Season edition of Lush's regular Butterball bath bomb, which basically means that it's half an ounce smaller and shaped like a cute little snowman instead of the usual spheroid.

The Butterball is supposedly supposed to be a very light-scented bomb to begin with. Mr. Butterball, being smaller (all their molded Holiday editions seem to end up smaller, which seems extremely silly to me as they're also more expensive) has pretty much no scent at all, aside from a teeeny bit of spicy/cocoabuttery sweetness which you really have to get your nose close to the water to notice. However, both Butterballs' real draw are the bits of cocoa butter they're packed with, which your skin will soak up in the tub, leaving you all moisturized (and a wee bit slimey, in a nice way). No lotion necessary after a Butterball bath! So if you're looking for practically no scent but lots of moisturization, this bath bomb is perfect. However, if you expect to be entertained in your tub, you'll have to either bring a friend or a second bath product.

p.s. -- Watch yourself when climbing out of the tub. For some reason bathtubs get slippery when you coat them in cocoa butter, and maybe if you're sleepy you might not think of that beforehand. LESSONS LEARNED.
