The Mrs Whippy Bath Bomb is a much loved old-school-Lush product that is adored by all Lushies both old and new, inspired by ice cream, whenever it appears on the Lush Kitchen menu it always creates a ‘whipple’ of excitement. Sorry couldn’t resist…
It is a part of the ‘Yummy Mummy’ scent range which if you’re not familiar with includes products such as the Roller bath bomb, Peeping Santa bubbleroon and Flutterby bubble bar to name just a few. Although I say they share a scent, I find that this Lush-scent-family in particular does differ ever so slightly depending on the products format. For example the Mrs Whippy bath bomb (in my personal opinion) isn’t as sweet as the Roller bath bomb is, its scent is far more sharp.
The first thing you notice about the Mrs Whippy bath bomb is how strong its scent is, considering it is a smaller than average Lush bath bomb it has some serious clout when it comes to its sugary, sweet fragrance. It instantly fills a room with its scent, spreading hints of deliciously rich blackcurrant and fresh strawberries wherever it goes.
You can see in the above picture how tiny the Mrs Whippy bath bomb is, at first I was a bit taken aback by its small size. In my head I was thinking that this size bath bomb would normally retail at the same price as the Butterbear or Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb however at the time of drafting this review (28th March 2016) it currently sells for £4.00 which in comparison to other small, Lush bath bombs is very expensive!
Although the Mrs Whippy bath bomb is a bit on the small side, I was surprised to see that it was a slow fizzer. No, it doesn’t give off the bath art that a slow fizzing bath bomb normally would but it is still incredibly therapeutic to watch as it slowly bubbles away.
This leads me into the question of, is it worth the extra pennies seeing as it is such a small size? I’ll hold my hands up and say Mrs Whippy doesn’t have the wow factor that the Roller bath bomb has. Its scent does however stay with you through out your bath and stays on your skin for the best part of the day afterwards too.
Slowly but surely the Mrs Whippy bath bomb fizzles away, as it does it softens the water with all of its skin loving ingredients. Containing a mixture of cocoa absolute and soya milk it leaves your skin silky smooth. Is this bath bomb as good as the hype makes out? Yes and no. It all depends on what you look for in a bath bomb.
If you want a big and visually colourful showcase of a bath bomb then Mrs Whippy probably isn’t a bath bomb you’d be head over heels for, it does however have other great qualities, for example its scent and how it soothes your skin. If you’re looking for a calm, refreshing and relaxing bath then Mrs Whippy is right up your street, it’s perfect to sit back and relax in and it really does do wonders to your skin.
Although this bath bomb’s scent is a little heavy, I still really enjoy using it. As I mentioned earlier, its scent stays on your skin hours and hours after you have got out of the bath, this is an advert for it in-itself as it always leaves me craving using it again…
