When I see that the So White bath bomb had, had a makeover I was a little worried as the older version was one of my all time favourite Christmas bath bombs. A review of the older version can be found here.
Once I had one in my hand I was relieved to find that its scent was the same as the original I had grown to love. Right then the only differences I could visibly see were some slight alterations to its initial design.
The new So White bath bomb was now shaped more like an actual apple. It has an indentation where the apples stalk would be if it was a real apple, in addition to this indentation, there is now also a green leaf on the top of the bath bomb.
The addition of this one green leaf adds the tiniest splash of colour to a bath bomb that had always been known as being all white.
One more difference I could see was that instead of also being completely round it now had one flat side making it more stable if put on display. I’m not sure why some bath bombs have this and others don’t as I’ve never thought to ask.Above is a picture of the new So White bath bomb next to its older design.
When I got home and compared both of the designs together I noticed that the newer one also felt a little lighter. The old design had quite a sturdy, solid exterior; One that reminds me of a gob stopper. The new So White however had a much softer and dusty shell, which normally means it is coated with Lush’s foaming agent meaning more froth once in the water…
There was only one way to find out if any more had changed so I put my new So White in the bath, camera at the ready.
It instantly began to foam lots and lots of white. The older version after a few seconds would then start to show its pink exterior. After a minute or so I noticed that there was no pink. It was at that point that the bath bomb began to spin, dunking its one green leaf under the water creating one very small puff of apple green foam.
By this point I was wondering if the bath bomb had a coloured center at all. The older version was pink throughout but the newer design seemed to be white all through. Pink is my favourite colour so I was a little disappointed.
Just as I was about to sit back in the bath thinking that the bath bombs show had already finished the bath bomb suddenly spurted out yellows, blues and greens!
The new colours really did surprise me. When you’re used to a soft pink exterior you really are surprised to see other such vibrant colours appear.
The colours hidden inside the new So White bath bomb are similar to those of the Fizzbanger bath bomb. The introduction of these bright and zesty colours well made up for the absence of its previous pink interior.
The scent of this slow dissolving bath bomb like its older design still allowed my imagination to run wild. The sweet scent of fresh, crisp apples will always be welcome in my bathroom.
After getting out of the bath I could still smell the scent of the So White bath bomb on my skin, the new version was just as good scent wise and my skin felt hydrated and super smooth.
I never think it is possible to improve upon perfection but Lush Cosmetics go above and beyond my expectations of perfection every time. The newly redesigned So White bath bomb is yet another new Lush product that’s going to drain my bank account of funds. Will they ever release a product I don’t like?!
