I can’t believe I have left the opportunity of reviewing the Yoga Bomb bath bomb until now, I have no excuses other than that I have been completely overwhelmed with all of the new Lush products released over the past 24 months. It has been such an exciting whirlwind of 5 star, fresh cosmetics.
During this period of time I have fallen head over heels in love with Lush products one after the other.
When the Yoga Bomb bath bomb was first released it was one of many new Lush products that were exclusive to the Lush Oxford Street flagship store that opened back in 2015. Eventually, the Yoga Bomb bath bomb proved so popular that Lush decided to make it available in all stores and online.
The first thing that comes to mind when you have a Yoga Bomb bath bomb in your hands is how boring and plain it looks. In comparison to other bath bombs such as Frozen or Sacred Lotus it wouldn’t win any beauty competitions on first appearance alone.
Scent wise the Yoga Bomb bath bomb is however a whole other level of yum.
Containing frankincense and sandalwood oil the Yoga Bomb’s scent is invitingly warm as well as both calming and soothing. It is a fantastic night time bath bomb that I have found to be a great alternative to the Blackberry bath bomb if I ever fancy bathing a little differently.
Within the first few seconds of the Yoga Bomb hitting your bath water, mounds and mounds of fluffy orange foam disperses from it. The foam gathers together on top of the water surface, spreading itself out evenly.
The Yoga Bomb then begins to charge around the bathtub while also slowly spinning itself, leaving a clear pattern of summer-orange swirls and big white, frothy bubbles.
Upon my first use of the Yoga Bomb I couldn’t help but wish that it had a little something more to give. The scent ticks every box for what I like in a bath bomb but for such a foamy bath bomb I wondered why it didn’t have any more colours to show off with.
That thought was however short lived as after 5 or so minutes of Yoga Bomb bobbing around in my bath it decided to show me its beautiful, secret insides!
In addition to the orange there were now small swirls of other colours forming. Light purple, indigo, turquoise, lime green and a deep exotic blue. The colourful patterns that the Yoga Bomb made in my bathtub got bolder and better with every passing second.
The Yoga Bomb is a very slow fizzer. The show seems to go on for 10 minutes, maybe more, I am unsure as I always lose complete track of time while watching it.
Once Yoga Bomb has fully dissolved you are left with shimmery orange bath water coated with softly multicoloured swirls.
I find a Yoga Bomb bath to be very moisturising. It’s a treat for tired skin that I go back for time and time again. The delicate scent of the bath bomb stays with you for a good 4 or so hours after getting out of the bath too.
If you want help to relax after a tough day, the Yoga Bomb bath bomb is an excellent choice for a bathing partner. Within minutes of soaking in its water I can feel all of my worries and stresses melt away.
I am so glad that Lush rolled this bath bomb out to all stores at it is positively fabulous.
My only negative on it is that it really does work best the fresher it is. I strongly advise against hauding this bath bomb for more than a couple of weeks. It is self preserving I just feel you get more out of it when it is at its freshest.
Some bath bombs I’ve managed to keep perfect for months after buying it. The Yoga Bomb however doesn’t seem to hold on to its glory for very long, if you want the jaw dropping bath show I mention, use your Yoga Bomb bath bomb within a few days of buying it.
