The Blazin’ Bad Zula Bath Bomb is a brand new release from Lush’s 2020 Mother’s Day line. If you’re a Spice Girl fan like me, you may recognise this bath bombs name as it is named after Scary Spices alter ego in the Spice Girls 1996 top hit, Say You’ll Be There’s music video. My inner 6 year old squealed with excitement at the thought of a Spice Girl bath bomb, I just simply had to get a hold of one as quickly as possible.
In the 30 years I have lived on planet Earth I don’t think anything else has ever captivated my time and attention more than the Spice Girls did and Lush does now, mix them both together and I’m in heaven.
Blazin’ Bad Zula’s scent is a fragrance we’ve had from Lush before, it shares its scent with the Chris The Camel bath bomb that was first released as a part of Lush’s 2019 Christmas line. Containing black pepper, cinnamon leaf, Brazilian orange and clove bud oils Blazin’ Bad Zula’s fragrance is sweet yet spicy. I personally really like its scent but have heard from a few others that it is quite the acquired taste.
Any Lush product with a hint of spice in especially cinnamon is bound to be a hit with me, as I suffer with chronic pain; The warm ingredients in certain Lush products are a god-send for me as they work wonders on aching muscles. My mission to help myself combat the chronic pain I suffer with is actually what first inspired me to get into Lush products, this makes Blazin’ Bad Zula even more exciting for me!
As you can see from the photos the Blazin’ Bad Zula bath bomb was designed with Scary Spices trademark leopard print in mind. What I wasn’t prepared for when I threw the Blazin’ Bad Zula bath bomb into the bath was the BATH ART.
The Blazin’ Bad Zula bath bomb is a very slow fizzer leaving you plenty of time to admire the bath art it leaves behind. As it bobs around in the water it shoots out a wide range of colours, yellows, purples, greens and blues; White foam too. My photos of the bath bomb in action do it no justice at all.
Once Blazin’ Bad Zula has completely dissolved the water left behind feels luxurious and silky smooth. It’s a very dark shade of purple with a generous helping of golden sparkle, as well as laying back in its warming and stimulating waters you can’t help but swish the water round, swirls of green and gold come to the surface before quickly disappearing again. It’s a true piece of art!
The sweet and spicy scent of the Blazin’ Bad Zula bath bomb lasts through out the whole bath. Once out of the bath its scent also remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day too. My nose always seems to detect a banana element to this bath bomb, it’s strange as, as far as I am aware it hasn’t got banana in but I’m not the only one to make the comparison.
If any Lush product has ever oozed girl power before it hasn’t been quite on par with the beautiful Blazin’ Bad Zula bath bomb. For lightly shimmered, glowing and beautifully hydrated skin give Blazin’ Bad Zula a go! I hope that Lush bring this bath bomb out again as I missed being able to stock up on it because of the temporary closure due to social distancing. Fingers crossed! 🤞
