Monsters’ Ball Bath Bomb from Lush

Monsters' Ball Bath BombI couldn’t quite believe my eyes when I very first see the huge pile of Monsters’ Ball bath bombs at 2016’s Lush Creative Showcase. At the time I was so taken back by its quirky-cartoonish design that I completely missed the fact that it is Calacas scented.

To my delight the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb not only smells identical to one of my favourite Lush Kitchen bath bombs the, The Enchanter Bath Bomb but it also puts on quite the colourful bath time show. Other Calacas scented bath bombs such as the Skullduggery although very pleasant, do not have the same wow factor in the water when it comes down to bath art.

As soon as you place the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb into your bath water it starts to hiss, an explosion of purple foam fizzes out of it as it bobs and rolls around the waters surface. The water instantly feels silky smooth, my skin laps it up. You can’t help but lay back, relax and enjoy all of its beauty with every single one of your senses.

Monsters’ Ball contains both lime and neroli oil. My first Lush memory of neroli oil is from the Frozen bath bomb. I wasn’t sure of it at first but I have grown to love its scent. Neroli is a really bitter scent when on its own. In Monsters’ ball the bitterness of the neroli is however completely washed out by the lime oil. The lime oil rounds off the neroli ingredient giving Monsters’ Ball a sweet, much lighter and somewhat warming citrus-scent.

Neroli oil has been scientifically proven to increase the levels of serotonin (the happy hormone) in your brain, therefore if you need a bath that will boost your spirits Monsters’ Ball is a good bath bomb to go for.

Once the bath bomb has been in the water for a little while it begins to spin, creating even more beautiful purple foamy patterns with blue streaks too.

As the bath bomb dances around your bath, the water slowly turns a dark and sparkly purple colour. Its scent stays with you through out the bath and I can still smell it on my skin the next day. I can’t get enough of the Calacas scent, it’s so cheery and always lifts my mood.
Monsters’ Ball may look ugly but it really is a fantastic bath bomb that I wish Lush had created and sold years and years ago. Not only does it smell fabulous but it also creates beautiful bath art that is sure to catch anyone’s attention. Just look at the photo below!

The final thing I like about Monsters’ Ball is that its one eye is actual, vegan chocolate. I however wouldn’t recommend eating it, let your bath have the chocolate treat. Your skin will thank you for it I promise.

I will be stocking up on the Monsters’ Ball bath bombs before Halloween is over without question. It’s such an amazing addition to the Halloween product line and has made 2016’s line the best yet, if this bath bomb doesn’t return year in year out there will be trouble! 😉
