I can’t believe I have left the opportunity of reviewing the Yoga Bomb Bath Bomb so long after its initial release, 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.
When the Yoga Bomb bath bomb was first released it was one of many brand-new Lush products that were exclusive to the Lush Oxford Street store that opened back in April 2015.
Eventually, with the Yoga Bomb bath bomb being so popular, 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 sight.
Scent wise the Yoga Bomb bath bomb is however a whole other level of yummy.
Containing frankincense and sandalwood oil the Yoga Bomb’s scent oozes relaxation. 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 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 some waiting, the Yoga Bomb bobbing around in my bath decided to show me its beautifully-bright colourful insides!
In addition to the orange foam, small swirls of other colours begin to form upon the bath-waters surface. Light purple, indigo, turquoise, lime green and a deep exotic blue.
The colourful patterns that the Yoga Bomb makes in your bathtub get bolder and brighter with every passing second.
All of the colours that come out of the Yoga Bomb clash with each other perfectly – this makes the bath art it creates really stand out from the rest.
The colours, its scent and its beauty combined make for a truly relaxing, bath-time experience. The Yoga Bomb as I said earlier is a very slow fizzer, the show goes on for almost 20 minutes.
When in use you do have to be patient for any Yoga Bomb bath art, nearer to its end is when the explosion of hidden colours reveal themselves. It truly is a marvellous￼ bath bomb once it gets itself going.
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 real treat for dull, tired skin, after a good soak my skin ends up looking brighter as well as feeling smooth.
If you want some help winding down after a tough or busy day, Yoga Bomb is an excellent choice in bathing partner.
Within minutes of soaking in its water I can feel all of my worries and stresses melt away. At the time of writing this review the Yoga Bomb is available in all stores. GREAT news as it really is a positively fabulous product.
My only negative on it is that it really does work best the fresher it is. I strongly advise against hoarding ￼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.
Most Lush bath bombs that I dare to stock up on keep looking (and working) like they are as good-as-new, months and months after they have been made.
The Yoga Bomb however doesn’t seem to hold on to its youth for very long. I’ve heard of many people holding on to theirs for too long. Then, when they do decide to finally use it, it just drops to the bottom of the bath smooshed together in a brown sludge consistency.
If you want to see jaw-dropping bath art while also avoiding the risk of it just turning into brown-bath-sludge make sure that you use your Yoga Bomb as fresh as possible. Other than this, I believe that Yoga Bomb really is a wonderful addition to Lush’s ever growing Bath-Bomb-family. 😊
