When I am completely zonked by fatigue or need a bit of a boost, my go-to Lush product is the Avobath Bath Bomb. I’ll admit that it’s not the most visually pleasing bath bomb that Lush have created, I would however advise you to look past this as there is so much more to a bath bomb than how it looks, beauty is not always about what you can visually see!
What the Avobath bath bomb lacks visually is well made up for with everything else about it. Its carefully selected ingredients make for one very hydrating, refreshing and uplifting bath. It not only awakens every single one of your senses but also leaves your skin feeling soft, well soothed and looking fabulous.
The idea that baths are strictly a night time, just-before-bed activity is a myth. YES, that’s right, there’s no truth in it, if you want a bath first thing in the morning or even at 2 in the afternoon, GO FOR IT! Bath Bombs don’t all have the same ingredients in and not every ingredient in a bath bomb makes you sleepy. I am explaining this as there are so many people out there that don’t know about essential oils and what properties and benefits each one has on us when used.
The Avobath is a brilliant bath bomb to use if you’re feeling tired and want to wake yourself up. It has a fantastically zingy, citrus fruit scent which really helps me fight the fatigue. If you’re unable to drink caffeine like me, an Avobath soak is the next best thing!
As I said above, you’re not going to get any bath art out of the Avobath bath bomb. It’s a very quick fizzer, which isn’t a bad thing if you just want to lie back basking in all of its glory without much delay!
As soon as Avobath hits the bath water you’re greeted with an awakening waft of lemon grass and bergamot. Avobath also has a considerable amount of crushed fresh avocado and olive oil in it which is what makes it so hydrating. It’s an excellent choice if you suffer with dry skin, I find that the moisture stays for at least 48 hours after using it too.
Once the bath bomb has completely dissolved you are left with beautiful, bright green bath water, I know you shouldn’t have hot, hot, hot baths but I love using the Avobath in a hot as I can stand it bath. There’s something so relaxing about all of the Avobath’s ingredients mixed together, it’s almost as if my stresses and worries dissolve away with the bath bomb.
Performance wise the Avobath is on par with the Blackberry bath bomb. Much like the Blackberry bath bomb, Avobath has secret magical powers because of the essential oils within it. I like that you may only be aware of these hidden powers if you have bothered to learn a little bit more about a Lush products ingredients…
Not everyone looks for bath bombs that only produce patterns and loads of colours so I can see why Avobath has thankfully remained so popular.
Although the Avobath bath bomb is plain to look at, I still hold it with high regard. I’d be very upset if Lush ever discontinued it. It’s high up in my list of bath bomb favourites.
