The Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb is a pastel-green, Halloween ballistic that has a strong, musky and spicy herbal scent. Its long list of ingredients contains both patchouli and black pepper oil so it is quite an acquired taste. I am not huge fan of patchouli but I always try a Lush product at least once.
Unlike any other Lush bath bomb, Lord of Misrule has its own unique design. Instead of being smooth all over, this bath bomb has a flower/rounded star shaped crown on its top, this was clearly included in its design to signify its ‘Lord’ status.
As soon as I plopped the Lord of Misrule bath bomb into my bath water the bath bombs colourful and foamy magic unfolded right before my eyes. A huge amount of green froth bubbled up to the top of my bath water and the bath bomb then began to bob around, spinning slowly.
Lord of Misrule’s scent immediately engulfs whatever room it is in, when I had my first one delivered I could smell it before I had even opened the box. I find you can still smell Lord of Misrule hours after it has been removed from a room, it is quite possibly the strongest scented Lush bath bomb I have used to date. With it having such a strong scent I couldn’t quite believe how much its scent intensified once in the water.
I Wasn’t particularly impressed with this as I found the patchouli (the ingredient I don’t always get on with) far too strong even before I’d put it in the bath. I felt as if I was drowning in the scent. I would however like to point out that just because I dislike its scent, it doesn’t mean that you will too.
Although I can’t hack Lord of Misrule’s scent, I will admit to there being something wonderfully mystical about how it performed in the bath, I can see why so many people are head over heels in love with it and its colours.
Unfortunately the Lord of Misrule scent triggers my migraines. Regardless of the migraine trigger, I stayed in the bathroom for as long as I could to get some photos.
The pinks and greens that were spiraling out of the Lord of Misrule bath bomb were creating some of the prettiest bath art I had ever seen.
The pink and green contrast so well, if it wasn’t for its scent I could see myself using it all of the time. Another surprise it had was the addition of popping candy. The popping candy always makes for an interesting bath especially when you aren’t expecting it.
Near the end of the bath bombs bath time show, the hot pink colour overpowers the green turning the bath water a deep-pink, it reminds me of mulled wine.
I am so in love with the water melon coloured foam that Lord of Misrule creates I just wish I could have enjoyed it more. Stupid migraines!
As I didn’t get a chance to review this bath bomb in quite the same way as I have reviewed others, I’d like to leave you with a link of someone else’s review on it (migraine free!)
You would have probably already heard about Jen from All Things Lush UK, she needs no introduction as she’s the Lush queen of the world. BUT, if you have been living under a rock and haven’t heard about her, here is a link to her review of the Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb. I know it is one of her all time favourites and I guess not liking every Lush product is perfectly normal, we’d all get very bored if we all loved and hated the same products after all!
