The Mum Bath Bomb is brand new to Lush Cosmetics. It has been created and released as a part of their limited edition Mother’s day range for 2017, it comes in 2 different colours, both however share the same scent.
When I see the Mum bath bombs smaller size I admit that I was a little disheartened, not because I was disappointed but because it wasn’t a Lush product that had me ‘Oooing’ on first glimpse. Sometimes a newly released product stops me in my tracks, the Mum bath bomb however didn’t. Regardless of this, I really liked the pastel colours each design had and decided to grab one of each.
Decorated in pastel pink, yellow and green colours the Mum bath bomb suits this time of year perfectly. The colours are not too in your face but are bright enough to give off a Spring time vibe. Just big enough to fill the palm of my super-tiny hands, the Mum bath bomb although small made quite the impression on me once placed into the water. What really surprised me about the Mum bath bomb was how its scent changed once in the bath tub.
Before using it, the Mum bath bomb’s scent wasn’t one I got particularly excited about. Sometimes a bath bomb smells so good that you can’t wait to share a bath with it. Some others however don’t get my heart racing in quite the same way. Holding the Mum bath bomb in my hand I honestly wasn’t that sold on the scent. All I could really detect with my nose was a very peppery-sweet, floral fragrance.
Once in the bath the bath bomb’s scent however comes alive. The Sicilian lemon and sweet orange oil take over the floral tones making it have a zesty-sweet fragrance. It is at this point that I decided that I had totally underestimated the Mum bath bomb.
As I had expected, this bath bomb was a very quick fizzer. Some people however prefer the quicker ones so this could be a positive or negative trait, above and below are 3 pictures of the 2 bath bombs in action. Up top is the green one with pink writing and down below is the green one with yellow writing.
Like many of the smaller bath bombs, Mum doesn’t leave my skin as silky smooth and hydrated as I have grown used to while using others such as, the Blackberry or Fizzbanger. The scent of it however stays with you long after getting out of the bath, leaving your skin lightly fragranced for hours and hours.
My skin isn’t too dry so the fact that this bath bomb isn’t super hydrating isn’t much of a problem for me, I could maybe see it being a problem for someone with dryer skin though. For those with dry skin, or even those that just want a more hydrating experience I recommend using the Mum bath bomb alongside a bubble bar. There’s a long list of them to choose from, right now I am however enjoying the Mum bath bomb paired with the Baa Bar bubble bar.
This next sentence is going to leave me at risk of sounding like a complete kill-joy but I feel I have to mention it. With the Mum bath bomb it is crystal clear that this product is for Mother’s day. Although I love and celebrate the day myself, I can’t help but miss last year’s products as they weren’t so in your face with MUM, MUM, MUM. By all means it has an excellent design and it isn’t exclusive to just mums, absolutely anyone can use it, I just feel as if something not so obviously ‘mum orientated’ would have sold better. Regardless of this I still stand by it being a really good bath bomb.
Once it has all dissolved a yellow and pink note floats to the surface, it reads, ‘Thanks MUM’. This is a very sweet touch that I wasn’t expecting at all. Overall the Mum bath bomb has really impressed me, I wasn’t expecting much but once in the bath it well and truly out-did what I had expected of it.
For such a small bath bomb it sure has some go and although it’s not a bath art type of product, its scent is beautifully fresh and it has got me more than ready for the Spring time.
