The Magma Bath Bomb is one of the first products I grabbed when I visited Lush Liverpool on its opening day last month.
Originally it was an exclusive to the Lush Harajuku store in Japan but because it’s 30 years since the bath bomb was invented by Lush’s very own Mo Constantine, Lush have put all of the Harajuku exclusive bath bombs up online making them available to purchase everywhere.
Magma shares its scent with the Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar which happens to be one of my favourites. Using it helps ease the back and rib pain that I suffer with due to my medical conditions.
Containing cinnamon, ginger and peppermint oil, Magma also shares most of the same ingredients as the Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar.
Cinnamon and ginger are the perfect ingredients for warming up tired aching muscles as they stimulate your blood circulation melting all muscle tension away. Mixed in with the peppermint the Magma bath bomb is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to deep muscle relaxation.
Magma’s scent is quite the acquired taste, if you favour the spicier Lush scents such as those found in the Hot Toddy shower gel and Christmas Sweater bath bomb then you will most likely really enjoy the Magma bath bomb. It’s a very warm scent, so much so it almost tickles my nose.
Designed to look like a burning ball of lava the Magma bath bomb is quite unique to anything Lush have ever released before. Its orange shell has cracks in showing its yellow and gold interior, imitating flowing lava.
As soon as the Magma bath bomb hits the water a burst of thick orange foam spills out of it, slowly the orange foam thins out and yellow and paler orange streaks appear from it too.
What I wasn’t expecting from Magma was the amazing bath art it created; With it being such a slow fizzer I couldn’t help but enjoy the show it put on.
The scent of the Magma bath bomb lasts throughout the whole bath. There’s nothing quite like sinking yourself into the Magma bath bombs waters, it’s like an all over massage.
As I mentioned earlier, when soaking in its waters you can literally feel the tension of the day vacating your body.
I was very happy to find that the Magma bath bombs scent also stayed on my skin long after I got out of the bath. Getting little whiffs of its scent throughout the rest of the day really helps drag out the relaxation side of this product.
The Magma bath bomb is a firm favourite for me, so much so that at the time of writing this review I already had 2 more ordered. The dark orange bath water it leaves you with is super soft too. It leaves my skin soothed, brighter and refreshed.
If you suffer with chronic pain or do a job that is physically demanding then I highly recommend trying this bath bomb. It took me a little while to get used to the ‘Wiccy Magic’ scent but now whenever I get a whiff of it I feel myself instantly relax.
Its warming effects lasts even once out of the bath and its because of this that I value the product so very much. The beautiful bath art it creates is just a very much appreciated added bonus. Great job Lush!
