It blows my mind that the Frozen Bath Bomb was originally only available from Lush’s Oxford Street store. When Lush announced that it would become a staple store product in all stores and online I was well and truly over the moon.
I’m Disney mad (yes I do have other obsessions away from Lush.) Can you imagine the sheer level of excitement beaming out of me when I first found out about the Frozen bath bomb? A Lush product inspired by a much loved Disney film is in my personal princess-obsessed-opinion, the best idea that Lush have ever come up with.
I knew upon the release of this bath bomb that I needed to get my hands on it as soon as possible. I would have literally done anything to get it and eventually I DID! all of my thanks goes to a Lush Oxford Street employee that went above and beyond to help me get my hands them. Thank you so much Bella!
The Frozen bath bomb is a soft, pastel-blue colour with a darker blue streak through it. I guess you could describe it as having a snazzy, dark blue belt. The colours are iconic to the film, I cannot express how happy this bath bomb makes me, I’m a loser I know but it is just so beautiful.
If you’re a fan of the Disney film with the same name, you’d know just from the bath bombs colours that it is inspired by the main character, Queen Elsa’s beautiful icy-blue dress. Although the Frozen bath bomb has a fairly simple design, it is in my personal opinion one of the prettiest Lush bath bombs that I have ever seen on face value and in action.
I obviously had no idea what this product even smelt like back when it was only an Oxford Street exclusive. I was a little nervous that I wouldn’t like its scent as some Lush products simply don’t get on with my nose. There was however no need to fret, this refreshing, solid ball of magic did not disappoint my delicate-princess nose at all.
I have tried to explain the scent so many times and even over a year since its release I still cannot find the right words. Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious doesn’t even touch upon it.
The grapefruit and neroli oil in the Frozen bath bomb both work beautifully together. Neroli oil is actually scientifically proven to increase the levels of serotonin in the brain. For the likes of you and me, that means that the use of neroli oil increases the production of the happy hormone! maybe that is why the Frozen bath bomb has such a positive affect on me?
In theory, I should not like the scent of this bath bomb AT ALL, I have never been a huge fan of grapefruit and I would actually go as far to say that I despise grapefruit. Frozen has however changed my opinion on it. The bath bomb’s scent is both refreshing and uplifting, I cannot get enough of it.
The magic of the Frozen bath bomb however only truly starts when it is placed in your bath water. Every time I use the Frozen bath bomb I fall even more in love with it, every swirl of pattern it makes is unique and I always find myself mesmerised by its beauty and graceful movement.
The first time I tried it I literally couldn’t stop taking photos, I can remember being kick-your-self gutted as half way through using it my iPad’s memory became full. BOO!
I don’t take the greatest of photos, my hands are very shaky as well as having poor grip. How I have never dropped my camera in the bath is a miracle, I have actually insured all of my gadgets for water damage so although I’d scream the house down it wouldn’t be the end of the world.
It is a shimmery bath bomb, once upon a time I actually used to avoid the shimmery Lush products as, as much as I love all things sparkly, the thought of it being all over my body and potentially in my eyes freaked me out, before I knew about the Frozen bath bomb I voiced my fear of bath bomb glitter to the sales assistant in my local store. (I think we were talking about Space Girl.)
She reassured me that no Lush product contains ‘glitter, glitter’, it’s more of a light cosmetic shimmer, hearing this, I tried some of the shimmery, natural-mica-based bath bombs and haven’t looked back. I did not look like I had lost a fight with a fairy, it really was just a light dusting of shimmer similar to the soft shimmer you find in some makeup such as bronzer or cream eye shadows.
The Frozen bath bomb is absolutely perfect, if Lush ever discontinued it I will be very sad to see it go. To this day I don’t think there has been another bath bomb from Lush that is as truly beautiful in use.
Blue is far from my favourite colour but there is just something so spellbinding about the light and blue bath art that the Frozen bath bomb creates.
I can swish around the water, watching the shimmer sparkle away after Frozen has fully dissolved well after the water has grown cold. It feels almost criminal when you pull the plug…
