Lush Over and Over Bath Bomb | Review

Hi Lovelies
Me and my partner literally just missed buying products from the Easter collection by a few days ( argh big regret) but we decided to go to lush anyway's because we love to share a bath as part of our things we do as a couple. When we got to lush we actually both realised that we have actually tried most of the bath bombs/melts apart from a small number of products and Over and Over bath bombs was one of the products we actually haven't tried before.

Over and Over cost me £4.25 and it is a combination of the average lush bath bomb and also the other half being like the lush bath melts. They are similar bath bombs to this one which is a combination product too and that is called Roller. Anyway's going back to Over and Over, it's a beautiful bath product which is a bright orange and yellow shade, from the first smell of this product it had a smell like nature which kinda reminded me of the forest breeze.

First Impressions
As soon as my partner seen it in Lush he thought it looked like a Pokemon ball which made me laugh so much but to be honest he is right in a way it does look like one in a certain way. I like its in 2 sections as one side is covered the bath melt and the other side is the usual lush bath bomb design we all come to love. 

Fragrance 
As I said above it has a very natural nature smell and I looked on the lush website and the for key ingredients are as follows; Fair trade organic cocoa butter, Lime oil, Fennel oil and Orris oil. So you can see by the ingredients they are very earthy.

Ingredients 
vegan 
sodium bicarbonate, Citric acid, fair trade organic cocoa butter, perfume, lime oil, fennel oil, cypress oil, orris oil, cream of tartar, sodium laureth sulfate, lauryl betaine, PEG-6 caprylic / capric glycerides & PEG-60 almond glycerides, butylphenyl methylpropional, citral, limonene, linalool, tangerine lustre colour 45410, colour 47005. 


Over and Over in the Bath
As with any bath product I tend to put them in running water ( usually makes products look so much better, especially if they are very colourful or have glitter). As soon  as this hit the water it started to froth all over the bath, honestly people it was moving round the bath like it had a mind of its own! It was frothing just yellow with little bits of orange oil for a while ( gotta admit I was disappointed for a moment) UNTIL the centre appeared which was a gorgeous bright pit and both of the colours started to fit round the bath and honestly it was a lovely surprise. I took a photo of it below and it did look better than this but we both couldn't wait to get in the bath.

The scent was just HEAVEN, one the over and over hit the water you could smell the fennel and lime mostly and they were just the perfect combination you could think of. Once we both got into the bath the whole bath eventually went into a bright orange shade and the aromas of over and over were very relaxing, we were both pleasantly surprised by the power and effect of this bath product; we both didn't want to get out of the bath because it was very relaxing and also very moisturising too.

My Thoughts
As you can tell by what I wrote above you can see me and my partner just loved this bath product and kinda wish it was an all year round product. Its quite different to other lush products I have tried with a very unique but very nice scent.

Dying my hair purple with Crazy Color Hot Purple

crazy colors hot purple review
 Hi Lovelies
I have lost count of how many times I have dyed my hair over the years but its been a while since Ive had purple hair. I went to Sally's in Shawlands the other day expecting to be getting my usual red hair dye but I  was spoilt by how many choices were there that I thought twice about what colour to do my hair. After looking at the colour chart I decided to go for Crazy Color Hot Purple as I thought it would work well on my dark blonde hair.

I knew before dyeing my hair that results work best with bright hair dyes but I was willing to give it a risk because they wasn't a chance I was going to be bleaching it beforehand. I have a sensitive scalp and I don't want to risk loosing more hair because I loose enough with PCOS.

Crazy Color is a very new brand to me and to be honest I haven't heard much about it before I decided to try it, I have no idea why I haven't heard of it before because this brand was founded way back in 1977. After doing my homework online I seen the have a various selection of products available including 27 different colour dyes, they also have bleach and shampoos.

Price
These are a very affordable price of £4 per bottle and can cover hair thats shoulder length, I would defiantly suggest more than one bottle if you have long hair.
because it is a vibrant shade it will be likely you would need to dye your hair between every 2 and 4 weeks, so thats a cost to keep in mind.

How Apply 
I did the same thing with this that I did with my Manic Panic Vampire Red. I got a mixing bowl ready with tinting brush, I also put on an old towel and put vaseline on my hair around my skin near my hair to stop dye going on my skin.

I put all of the dye into the bowl and put my hair into section so it would be easier to put on the hair dye evenly. Once I applied all the hair dye on my hair I used a wide toothed comb to make sure all the hair dye was distributed all over my hair.

Waiting Time
On the website it recommends leaving it on your hair for 15/30 minutes, I wanted to make sure that my hair would be purple so I decided to leave it on for the whole 30 minutes.

Washing 
As with any vibrant hair dye it is suggested that you wash out the hair dye with as cold water as you can stand, I put my water on as cold as possible and I would say it was just under luke warm.
I know your meant to wait till the water runs clear but even with most hair dyes they never run clear they just run into a quite faded colour with a slight shade of the colour you have in your hair.

Another good thing about this dye that they was no smell too it and the product itself was very gentle my hair and scalp.

Final results 
As you can see in the photos above its ok that it worked decent on hair that wasn't fully bleached and hair quite a lot of strawberry blonde in it. I like you can see a little bit of red in my hair too. It is not 100% what I was expecting and to be honest I very much doubt I will be keeping it purple for long because I don't think it worked well on my hair, I think this one would work a lot better on light blonde hair or bleached hair.

I have washed it only once and it has faded quite a lot unfortunately. I can't say I am put off by the brand I just think it would work better on bleached or lighter hair.

Rating 
on unbleached hair
3 // 5
