Lush prizes for competition winners!
17 Foundation Studies students, from the full- and part-time Looking Good, Feeling Great courses on hygiene at St Austell College, battled it out to design and make their own 'bath bombs' in a competition organised by teachers Suzanne Watson and Heather Hunkin.
A "bath bomb" is like a huge Alka Seltzer for a bath and the students had to consider the colour, smell, name and practicalities of their bath bomb as part of their design. Some students chose petals and glitter to go in the centre so that when the bath bomb finished dissolving a shower of petals was released into the bath. One student designed a wedding bath bomb, which had confetti in the middle.
The competition was judged by Sarah McCartney, from the Fresh Hand Made Cosmetic Company, Lush. As Sarah is the Editor of "Lush Times", the Company's newspaper distributed to retail outlets and also through their Mail Order Company, she offered to include a short editorial about the competition in the publication and will be printing the winners names in the next edition.
Lush, a London-based company who now export worldwide, were so impressed with the entries that they struggled to choose a winner. In the end joint first prize went to Natasha Wise, 18 from Indian Queens and Kelly Stoddern, 18 from Biscovey for their designs, Waikiki Kiwi and Hillbilly Bomber.
