The Flamingo Egg Bath Bomb was first released by Lush as a part of 2021’s Easter line, this year it has made, what seems to be for most people, a much-welcomed return.
One side of this popular egg-shaped bath bomb is pink, and the other is blue; Both sides have a cracked-shell-effect look and the pink side has a little bit of extra added detail, it’s decorated with a sprinkling of sparkly sea salt.
The Flamingo Egg bath bomb contains both lemon and vetivert oils, as well as labdanum resinoid and coarse sea salt. Its scent is quite tame for Lush and is described on Lush’s website as ‘cotton-candy scented’.
As soon as the Flamingo Egg bath bomb meets the water there is an explosion of blue and pink foam. Colour and bath art wise, the Flamingo Egg is just like the, The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb.
I said in that review that I was growing tired of the pink and blue bath bombs; This is also a huge reason as to why I am only reviewing this bath bomb now instead of when it was first released last year.
The Flamingo Egg bath bomb takes approximately 6 to 7 minutes to dissolve. Its scent also becomes a bit more prominent once the bath bomb is added to the hot bath water.
It’s not a scent I’d usually go for if I was shopping in store, BUT I always strive to try everything from the limited-edition and seasonal lines at least once, as quite often I am left impressed by products I’d never normally consider trying.
The water left behind by the Flamingo Egg bath bomb is silky soft and a dark shade of purple, it is not dissimilar to the waters left behind by the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb. The bath bomb softens the water a lot, leaving my skin with a gentle tingling feeling as I lay back in its waters.
Overall, I don’t dislike the Flamingo Egg bath bomb I just think I’m bored of the same old bath art, over and over. There are so many other colour combinations Lush could use but lately Lush just seem to be going for the same colour schemes with every bath bomb.
I admit that I was shocked to see it make a return alongside the Follow the White Rabbit bath bomb this year. I much preferred the Eggy Wegg bath bomb and was sure that was the bath bomb that would be returning with the Follow the White Rabbit bath bomb.
