It really annoys me when people use the word ‘boring’ to describe the Dragon’s Egg Bath Bomb. Why? because it is anything but boring. Up against all of the other bath bombs such as Fizzbanger, Frozen and Lava Lamp I can definitely see why people may over look it, to however call it boring is an undeserved insult.
Yes it’s a pale cream colour and not nearly as bright as some of the other surrounding bath bombs but you should never judge a book by its cover. A bath bomb has so much more going for it than just its colour or shape.
What made the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb stand out to me was its amazing fragrance. It has a sweet yet sharp lemon sherbet scent that makes my mouth water. If I’m struggling for energy a Dragon’s Egg bath always gives me a boost.
Inspired by Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, (obviously because of the dragons and of course the prefect-only-bathroom scene that every Lushie is of course insanely jealous of) The Dragon’s Egg bath bomb is decorated with a light dusting of coloured, rice-paper circles. These are added to the outer layer of the bath bomb in the final stages of it being made and pressed into its temporary mold.
As the bath bomb dissolves in your bath water, layer by layer it slowly reveals them. They are however very delicate colours, I have heard a few people say that the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb would create bath art on par with the Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb, unfortunately it doesn’t. This doesn’t however make it a bad bath bomb.
The Dragon’s Egg bath bomb is a slow burner. At first nothing much seems to be happening visually. The scent of it intensifies and fills your bathroom immediately after hitting the water, it isn’t until a good 8/10 minutes later that it becomes visually pleasing too.
The bath bomb then appears to crack, with that crack a burst of golden orange bubbles begins to spill out of the bath bomb creating the most beautiful, shimmery patterns on the top of your bath water.
Shortly after that there appears to be something else going on. People that aren’t aware that the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb contains popping candy are in for a BIG surprise at this point. Not only is the water slowly getting decorated with shimmery patterns but there appears to be a lot of snap, crackle and pops! Which might I add is a very strange yet pleasant experience.
A Dragon’s Egg bath always leaves my skin in tip-top condition. I not only get out of the bath with smooth hydrated skin but I smell fabulous too.
The Dragon’s Egg has one of my most favourite Lush scents, if not my ACTUAL favourite. There is just something about its sweet-citrus scent that gets me every time. It boosts my mood if I’m feeling low, fights fatigue when I’m not feeling very perky and also helps me sort out my head when I’m feeling stressed or not thinking clearly.
It’s a great bath bomb that pleases all of your senses, there’s not one single thing about it that is ‘boring.’ I really don’t know what the Dragon Egg haters are talking about. It’s fabulous!
