I am always giddy with excitement when Lush release new products. When my order of the Rocket Science Bath Bomb arrived earlier this week I couldn’t quite believe my eyes, it has such a beautifully intricate yet simple design. It’s a dark blue, rocket shaped bath bomb with a yellow flame tail, its tail is lightly decorated with a sprinkle of multicoloured stars like those found in the Golden Wonder and Stardust bath bombs.
For its current price (£2.95 as of 7th July 2017) I was expecting something a lot smaller so was pleasantly surprised with its size. It’s not particularly big like the Happy Pill bath bomb it just isn’t as small as I had envisioned, it fits perfectly in the palm of my hand.
It was just my luck that a new bath bomb would be released when the plumbing in my bathroom had give up the ghost, thankfully our plumber has fixed it, although it is only a temporary fix and could break again any minute… With this in mind I grabbed a Rocket Science bath bomb and got in the bath without further delay!
As soon as the Rocket Science bath bomb hits the water it explodes with colourful foam. Scent wise this bath bomb is very unique. Containing both Sicilian lemon and bergamot oil it’s a fruity-citrus pairing, it has elements to it that remind me of the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb it however has a much sweeter and almost smoky layer to it too, I don’t want to say it’s like the, The Experimenter bath bomb as it’s far from it but it’s smoky sweet scent layer does remind me of it a little.
As the bath bomb fizzes away blue and yellow foam fizzles out of it, giving the illusion of it actually gliding through your bath water. It isn’t long after placing it in the water that it begins to gently charge around the bath leaving a yellow, star scattered streak behind it, much like a plane in the sky that leaves a small line of cloud behind.
What really surprised me is that the Rocket Science bath bomb has pink insides too! the yellow slowly disappears and then suddenly pink bursts out of it. If you’re like me and always hunt for the Intergalactic bath bomb with the most pink in it then this bath bomb is perfect for you. I am so blown away with all of the colours that Rocket Science displays, I was not expecting it to create such wonderful bath art.
Overall I am very impressed with this bath bomb, it is a fantastic edition to the Lush bath bomb family. It’s refreshing, sweet, uplifting and using it leaves me feeling energised and content. It is also very hydrating for the skin and the scent stays with you for a good 4 to 5 hours after using it too.
