When I very first see the Autumn Leaf bath bomb at the Lush Creative Showcase I was really excited. Why? because it is unlike anything Lush have created before.
At this time of year and with Halloween just around the corner… (sorry guys, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but we are now very close to the 4th and final quarter of 2016) … I always find myself drowning in pumpkins, ghosts and skeletons. As much as I love the season, I think that autumn time is about so much more than just things that go bump in the night.
The lack of spookiness that the Autumn Leaf bath bomb has was what first attracted me to it.
At the Lush Creative Showcase the Autumn Leaf bath bombs were piled high. Even in a room that was full of hundreds of other products you could pin point the Autumn Leafs on scent alone.
The Autumn Leaf bath bomb has a very refreshing, outdoorsy and earthy aroma. For anyone that loves Lush as much as me you’d know that it shares its scent with all of the products in the Grass Lush-scent family.
Grass isn’t my favourite of the Lush scents so I haven’t used many of the products with its scent. The colours and design of this bath bomb however won me over, with that all in mind I feel its earthy and outdoorsy scent suits the autumn season perfectly making it a must have autumn and winter bath bomb.
When you first place the Autumn Leaf bath bomb into your bath water it instantly starts to react. Pastel green foam fizzes from it, slowly decorating the bath water with a thin coat of silky-smooth foam.
As time goes on other colours appear from it too.
As well as the greens there are golds, reds and oranges – All of the amazing colours associated with autumn.
Autumn Leaf is a very slow fizzer. It reminds me of the Skydancer Far from the Madding Guns Bath Bomb because of the way it floats, most other bath bombs float at the top for a short time before spinning, getting the whole of it wet. Autumn Leaf however stays face up, gracefully floating around the bath until it eventually all dissolves.
Overall I really enjoyed using the Autumn Leaf bath bomb, regardless of its Grass scent, (I am always never quite sure if I like it or not but in Autumn Leaf I did!)
Being honest as always, Autumn Leaf didn’t excite me once in the water as much as other bath bombs that have been released by Lush this month. This does not mean I dislike it, I still totally recommend trying it at least once.
The bath art it creates is beautiful and I found myself humming the Disney song from the Pocahontas film while in the bath with it, ‘Can you paint with all the colours of the wind?‘ 😉
