The So White Bath Bomb has had many visual updates, it started off as just a plain white sphere-shaped bath bomb with light pink insides (reviewed here) this version was released as a part of the Winter line consecutively for quite a few years.
It was then changed to have an apple-like-shape with a single green leaf sat on its top in 2016. This version of the bath bomb created some of the best bath art that I have EVER seen from a Lush bath bomb. (reviewed here)
I adored everything about the 2016 version of the So White bath bomb. Lush however decided to update it yet again just a few years later. Now it still shares the apple-like-shape from its previous version BUT it is completely white, even on the inside. The bath art has gone down the drain, literally…
The only thing that has stayed the same throughout So White’s many face lifts is its scent. The So White scent is in my top 3 favourite Lush scents, as sad as I was to lose what was one of my favourite parts of a much loved bath bomb I was happy I could still experience some of its wonder, minus the bath art.
As angry as I was at Lush for taking away a huge part of one of my all-time-favourite products I understood why they took the colour out of it. For starters it made the bath bombs name make more sense. It also became more desirable to customers who don’t like to bathe in lots of colour or glitter. Sometimes less is more.
With its deliciously-crisp, apple scent, the So White bath bomb smells just like a fairytale. Neroli, orange flower, Brazilian orange, bergamot and rose absolute are blended together to create one of the freshest fragrances Lush have on offer.
Seeing as the So White bath bomb doesn’t create any bath art I didn’t take many pictures of it once it was in the water. It’s a very slow fizzer and what it lacks in bath art it well makes up for with its scent and how soft and milky-white it turns your bath water.
I always come out of a So White bath feeling instantly refreshed, its scent is just so uplifting and gives me a real happiness-boost, helping to go about the rest of my day with a clear state of mind. I can never resist its scent.
After using it, its fairytale fragrance stays on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day, I however like the scent so much that I can never resist topping myself up with its body spray equivalent, the So White body spray.
Any product that has the So White fragrance will always be one of my favourites, if Lush had taken the colour out of any other bath bomb I doubt they’d have got away with it!
