‘HUMPTY DUMPTY FELT A SHARP WHACK, HUMPTY DUMPTY HEARD A GREAT CRACK. ALL THE KING’S HORSES AND ALL THE KING’S STAFF FOLLOWED SWEET HUMPTY STRAIGHT INTO THE BATH…’
The wording above isn’t quite the same as the nursery rhyme you will remember from your childhood BUT I think I might just like this Lush-version a little bit more. It could actually be written about me.
As a sufferer of EDS I’m always losing balance and getting ‘sharp whacks’, I also always hear ‘great cracks’… Which is mostly my joints moaning that I’ve moved them too fast or too far, ha, ha… As for always being in the bath, it’s no secret. I am a loud and proud bath addict, it’s how I keep productive 😉
With so much in common me and Humpty Dumpty where obviously meant to be!
The Humpty Dumpty bath bomb was a part of the 2016 Lush Easter range and was quite the size.
The idea behind the bigger Easter bath bombs is that you crack the egg (bath bomb) in half (just like you would an Easter egg) and inside is a surprise… A miniature bath bomb in the shape of a fried egg!
Once you can get to the fried egg insert you should have 3 pieces of bath bomb that you can share between 3 baths. That is unless you are greedy like me and just end up chucking them all in together…
All pieces of the Humpty Dumpty bath bomb are Honey I Washed the Kids scented. Honey I Washed the Kids is one of Lush’s most famous scents. It can be found in a number of their products all year through. The Honey I Washed My Hair shampoo bar is probably my favourite out of all of the every day range products that share its scent. (I will add a photo to this post when I find one, I’m so unorganised!)
The Honey I Washed the Kids scent is very sweet, I can pick out honey, toffee and hints of gooey caramel… It however isn’t at all sickly. When I first got into Lush I was really worried that I wouldn’t like anything from the Honey I Washed the Kids family, I could see so many products sharing the scent and was concerned as some sweet scents such as Lush’s Snow Cake Soap, I just can’t hack.
I have never had much of a sweet tooth and my preferred tastes are the same as my preferred scents. The Honey I Washed the Kids scent is however one of my favourites as it’s sweet but not sickly. I now always jump to try any of the Lush products associated with it.
Although the Humpty Dumpty bath bomb is huge, it doesn’t take long to fizz away once it comes in to contact with your bath water. This is the reason I always end up putting the 3 separate pieces in all at once.
Comparing the Humpty Dumpty bath bomb to other Honey I Washed the Kids scented bath bombs, I do favour the alternatives. Shoot for the Stars and Honey Bee (see below) appeal to me more as they are slow fizzers and their scents have more throw.
Humpty Dumpty is a lovely Easter bath bomb, I however only had 2 from this years range as I found it more of a novelty product. If it does come back next year I think I will buy it again but not for myself, I’d get it for my nieces and nephews as an alternative to a chocolate Easter Egg. I like to get them something a little bit different than everyone else and they all love bath time so it’s perfect for them as a treat.
