New Lush bath bombs are the product I always get the most excited about. The Holey Night Bath Bomb is a brand new release and has proved a very popular product from 2018’s Winter range. Its unique design makes it stand out from the rest; Bright blue in colour with yellow moon-like multi sized craters, it’s like no other bath bomb Lush have ever made.
Holey Nights scent is one I haven’t come across before, containing lemon, rose absolute and sandalwood oil it makes for a warm and uplifting bath. Its scent isn’t at all what I expected. I ignorantly assumed that the lemon oil would completely mask the sandalwood. The ingredient my nose picks up on first is however the sandalwood, the lemon is barely detectable but does soften the woodiness of the sandalwood somewhat.
Any product that is predominately sandalwood-scented always reminds me of visiting a spa, instantly relaxing me. Since we’ve said goodbye to the discontinued Yoga Bomb bath bomb I have really missed a bath bomb that has this effect on me. Although at this time of year I crave spicier bath bombs such as the Christmas Sweater bath bomb, Holey Nights has made a refreshing change.
Upon contact with the water the Holey Nights bath bomb foams up, dark blue and light green foam spreads across the water surface slowly turning the water underneath it blue too. As Holey Nights bobs around the bath its relaxing and subtle scent fills your bathroom. More colours then appear to fizzle out of the bath bomb which is another thing I didn’t expect at all. – Holey Nights has a hidden colourful centre!
Purples, reds, yellows and blues spiral out of the Holey Nights bath bomb creating the most beautiful bath art, my photos do NOT do it justice. With Holey Nights being a slow fizzer there are umpteen opportunities to capture bundles of bath art photographs. Or if you prefer to just lay back and watch the show, go for it! It really is all singing and dancing.
A soak in a Holey Nights bath leaves my skin soft and hydrated. Although once I am out of the bath its scent is even more subtle on my skin, I can still smell it on me well into the next day. This is when I feel the lemon part of this products scent shines through. It reminds me ever so slightly of the light scent left behind by the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb.
Overall I am really impressed with the Holey Nights bath bomb, its scent is just as beautiful as the pretty bath art it creates. I also love the Holey Night bath bomb because it isn’t an in-your-face Christmas product.
I’m a bit of a Scrooge, if it wasn’t for Lush I don’t think I’d get excited about this time of year at all. The Holey Nights bath bomb has made Winter 2018 so much easier to endure. Thank you Lush! If you’re on the fence about trying this product I 100% recommend giving it a go, even if it is just the once, I feel it is worth every penny and hope to stock up on a few before the Winter is through.
