Lush have just released a Cinderella-inspired, fairytale-carriage-shaped bath bomb. The You Shall Go to the Ball Bath Bomb is a standout product from this year’s much anticipated Winter line.
Out of all of the new bath bombs released throughout 2021 it’s definitely the one I have been the most excited about trying.
It’s absolutely beautiful to look at, it is bright pink and decorated with golden lustre. Its intricate design makes it almost too pretty to use.
It has a carriage window, 2 wheels with spokes and leaves are etched all around it in a similar way to how the Guardian of the Forest bath bomb’s leaf design is. You Shall Go to the Ball’s leaf details are however on a much smaller scale.
Lush have well and truly mastered the art of 3D printer bath bomb moulds. It’s hard to believe that the bath bombs are all pressed by hand.
Another exciting thing about the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb is that it features a brand new Lush fragrance. Described on Lush’s website as strawberry scented, many customers assumed that it shares its scent with the Yummy Mummy shower cream and Roller bath bomb it however doesn’t.
The You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb’s scent is a very subtle strawberry fragrance. It’s so light that in amongst the other Winter stock at first I couldn’t really smell it.
Once you have it on its own its gentle fizzy-strawberry fragrance does however come through, I’m really happy that Lush have finally made an alternative strawberry scent family as in all honesty as much as I love the Yummy Mummy/Roller scent I was getting a little bored of it.
Its scent fits in with the fairytale theme of this bath bomb perfectly, the only other Lush-scent-family Lush could have possibly made it in is the So White/Once Upon a Time fragrance but as I said earlier, I am always eager to experience brand new scents and the light strawberry suits this princess-pink product perfectly.
The You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb contains a blend of Sicilian lemon and tonka absolute. This simple yet flawless mix is what gives the You Shall Go to the Ball baths bomb its gentle, fizzy strawberry fragrance.
As soon as the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb is introduced to your bath water you are welcomed with an explosion of pink. A thin layer of silky soft foam spreads across the water’s surface as the bath bomb slowly bubbles away.
The scent of the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb really comes alive in the water, it’s still a very gentle fragrance but the heat of the water intensifies the scent somewhat. At this point you can really smell the strawberry notes Lush mentioned on their website.
After 3 or 4 minutes a luminous yellow stream of bubbly foam also trickles out of the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb. Beautiful pink and yellow bath art begins to form around you.
The pictures in this review do not show the true brightness of the yellow, they also do not show how spectacular the bath art really was. I say this a lot in my reviews, but I can’t stress enough how much better the experience of this bath bomb is in real life compared to just seeing the photos.
They say a picture speaks 1,000 words, if that is the case this bath bomb in person speaks 1,000,000!
Once the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with warm-orange-coloured bath water that has a sparkly gold finish. Seeing the golden shimmer dance around is just as relaxing as sitting back in the hot bath.
Once out of the bath I am left feeling refreshed and chilled out. Its scent although delicate, is still detectable on my skin for a couple of hours.
Overall, I really like the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb, it’s so unique to anything Lush have brought out before, its scent and its small yet perfectly detailed design make it a beautiful piece of art, I can see this bath bomb selling very well and wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone!
