Although I didn’t get to go to the Lush Summit back in February a few of my Lush friends managed to grab me most of the bits available. It was unadulterated torture seeing everyone uploading all of the beautiful photographs taken over those 2 days on Instagram. The Lush Showcase was one of the best days of my life and I was so heartbroken at the fact I couldn’t make it to the Summit. I am so thankful for my friends for grabbing me as much as they could, thank you!
I’m still missing a few items from that event. Lush, if you’re reading this PLEASE have a Lush Kitchen week of them soon, you know you want to. 😉
The amount of new products that were showcased at the Lush Summit left me ridiculously overwhelmed, I didn’t know what to obsess over first, the Yellow Submarine Bath Bomb looked like a good one to start on though…
The Yellow Submarine bath bomb shares its scent with Lush’s Big Calm shower jelly, it smells just like piña colada and makes me think of dropping everything and just jetting off on a sunny holiday. Sadly sharing a bath with the Yellow Submarine is the closest I’m going to be getting to a holiday for the foreseeable future, it isn’t quite the same as a holiday but it will suffice for now.
As soon as you place the Yellow Submarine into the bath water, bright yellow froth spurts out of it, after a short while the froth slows right down, with it still floating the bath bomb slowly starts to charge itself around the bath tub, its pink rudder leaving a trail of pink in amongst all of the yellow.
Eventually the Yellow Submarine bath bomb cracks revealing its hot pink innards. The bath art it creates is some of the brightest I’ve ever experienced, it has very similar colouring to the Enchanter and the Over and Over bath bomb, it however just appears so much brighter. I’m not sure if this is because it is actually brighter or if its just because of its summery, fruity ingredients that give off a bright and sunny illusion.
Pink is my favourite colour and watching the pretty patterns unfold was almost as relaxing as the bath itself. The contrasting colours work so well together, I couldn’t help but take hundreds of pictures.
At first I wasn’t too sure of this bath bombs scent, I love how the Big Calm shower jelly smells but the Yellow Submarine’s adaptation of the same scent was significantly stronger.
Once placed in the water the scent however became much more subtle. The scent stays with you throughout the bath and I’m so pleased that it didn’t remain as overpowering as it was when it was fresh out of the Lush bag.
Overall the Yellow Submarine bath bomb is yet again another Lush product that I recommend you try if you ever get the chance. I really hope that Lush Kitchen release it on their menu soon as I know so many people that didn’t manage to get hold of one wanted to give it a go, I promise it’s totally worth the wait!
