Review: LUSH Rocketeer



"Rocketeer wants to break your bath through the earth’s atmosphere and take you to other worlds."

 I will start by saying that I only used 1/4 of this as the bath was for my 1 year old (as you can probably tell from the tiny feet and mini hands!) so she has less water so less product is needed but the colour and fizz quality is amazing for such a small amount! 

The dry smell of Rockteer is very misleading to me, it smells quite unpleasant at first with a scent I can't quite put my finger on but once it's in the bath and fizzing it smells like sweets! Candy sticks to be precise! It fizzes and froths as soon as it hits the water leaving a blue and yellow swirl in the water as it floats about. The yellow is in the middle so if the whole ballistic was put in the colour would be blue at first and take a little longer to get the yellow streaks.

This has an amazingly strong colour to it which is perfect for kids and the popping candy in the middle was a massive hit with Ellie! The 1/4 that I put in was still fizzing happily after 10 minutes despite being squished and playing with by a toddler so lasted a lot longer than her usual Ickle Baby Bot.

As usually with LUSH her skin was left amazingly soft, she has quite dry skin at this time of the year and I always notice a difference in it's moisture when she has something from LUSH in her bath.

As for using LUSH products with little ones, I have previously asked in my local LUSH store whether their products are suitable for littlies and they assured me that all of their bubble bars, ballistics, etc are perfectly fine to use with babies over 6 months (apart from obvious things like the scrubs, etc!) but obviously it is ultimately the parents decision as to what they use with their children but from my experience with my daughter, we've have no problems at all with the products I've tried with her and I am very selective with the products I do choose for her and check ingredients beforehand (which is just common sense really!). The main ones I've used with Eloise are The Comforter and Ickle Baby Bot and I have been using those since she was 9ish months old in case anyone was wondering.

Have you tried Rocketeer? What's your favourite LUSH product?
