Last year’s Lush Halloween line felt a little empty, sure there was the Lord of Misrule bath bomb but it sets off my migraines, I felt so left out and spoiled myself on Christmas bath bombs instead.
Don’t get me wrong, Lord of Misrule is a crazy beautiful bath bomb, both in and out of the water, it also smells absolutely gorgeous, my heart wants to love it, no… My heart does love it, but the threat of a migraine over shadows any feelings in my heart. Sometimes following your head instead of your heart is the right thing to do. Sorry Lord of Misrule.
When I heard the news that there would be several Halloween bath bombs released this year I was so, so happy.
The Pumpkin bath bomb wasn’t the bath bomb I was most interested in but I decided to pick 2 up at the Lush Creative Showcase and am super glad that I did.
I have been told by several reliable, well knowledged pumpkin spice latte fans that the Pumpkin bath bomb is the fresh cosmetics product equivalent.
Therefore if a cheeky cup of pumpkin spice isn’t quite hitting the spot for you anymore you may want to indulge yourself by using a Pumpkin bath bomb or two.
The Pumpkin bath bomb was actually the first I tried from the rather large loot of products I bought from the Lush Creative Showcase. I could actually be lying, it was definitely the first from the Halloween line though.
Upon first sniff the Pumpkin bath bomb really reminded me of the Yog Nog bath bomb from previous years. I thought maybe this was its substitute however it really isn’t at all related. The spice in both had me confused. Both are very warming bath bombs and Pumpkin’s warming elements is what first caught my interest, which is why it was one of the first I tried.
Suffering with chronic pain I am always on the look out for warm and relaxing products.
The Pumpkin bath bomb was quite a fast fizzer. I however did not mind this as the quicker it dissolves, the quicker I can lay back and soak up all of its relaxing and warm awesomeness.
A lot of people have asked me on Instagram and on here about cutting up bath bombs to make them go further, for example halving the bomb so that you can get 2 baths out of it instead of 1. For some bath bombs I think it would be a Lush crime to cut them up as they must be enjoyed whole or you’re not getting the full experience.
The Pumpkin bath bomb is however one that I’d say you can split between 2 baths without taking anything away from how it performs, smells and how it affects you (essential oils wise) in the bath tub.
Overall I am very impressed with the Pumpkin bath bomb, it might not be as colourful as the other bath bombs currently available but the spiciness with in it has worked wonders on my aching muscles. I will without question be stocking up on these before Halloween has been and gone!
