As soon as I heard about Lush’s new Cupid Bath Bomb I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Nothing gets me more excited than when Lush Cosmetics bring out a brand new bath bomb!
The Cupid Bath Bomb is 2 shades of pink, reflecting the Valentine’s period perfectly. Designed as an arrowed heart, Cupid is the first word that comes to mind when you see it.
The arrow is a beautiful hot pink while the heart is a lighter pink. Yes the Cupid bath bomb is quite a small bath bomb in comparison to the Fizzbanger or Intergalactic but bath bombs don’t have to be big to be good.
Lush products are full of surprises so I always have an open mind, especially with the bath bombs. Just look how people reacted to the Metamorphosis bath bomb, everyone changed their mind on it once they see what it could do once in the water…
The Cupid bath bomb shares its scent with the Razzle Dazzle bath oil. It contains bergamot, rose and violet leaf absolute.
The ingredient that got me most excited however was the fresh raspberry juice. The raspberry scent in Cupid is the most prominent of the ingredients, it reminds me of the petits filous yoghurts that I used to have in my lunchbox when I was a kid.
As soon as the Cupid bath bomb hits the water pink fizz shoots out of it, at this point I could really smell the violet leaf absolute as well as the raspberry, anything violet like helps me unwind so I can never, ever get enough of it. I find violet leaf particularly helpful for tension, it is also my go to ingredient when I have a migraine brewing. I just can’t get enough of this bath bombs scent!
Cupid is a very slow fizzer and creates the most beautiful light pink, white and ever so slightly darker pink swirls on the top of your bath water. I wasn’t expecting much bath art from it but it did create a small amount that was worthy of a photograph or two.
I couldn’t believe how such a small bath bomb had, had such an effect on how the bath water felt on my skin. Once Cupid has fully dissolved you are left with silky smooth, light pink bath water.
The bath bombs scent stayed with me through out the bath. Once you’re out, the scent is very subtle on your skin, I could still detect it long after getting out of the tub.
I will most certainly be stocking up on the Cupid bath bomb before Valentine’s 2017 is over.
Hello raspberry heaven!
