When I see that the So White Bath Bomb had, had a makeover I was a little worried as the older version is one of my all time favourites. When presented with the new So White I was relieved to find that its scent remained the same as the original.
The new So White bath bomb is now shaped more like an actual apple. It has an indentation where the apples stalk would be if it was a real apple and also a single green leaf on its top.
One more difference I could see was that instead of also being completely round, the new So White bath bomb 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 has a much softer and almost 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 Lush ever release a product I don’t like?!
