The Screamo Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product first released as a part of Lush’s 2022 Halloween line. Any horror-movie-buff can see that it is clearly inspired by the film, Scream.
It’s a bright-white screaming face with dark blue holes for its eyes and mouth and a slight imprint of a nose too.
While I was sad that the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb didn’t make a return for Halloween this year I was happy to see a much bigger Halloween line with several new bath bombs thrown in, Screamo being one of them.
Last year Lush actually released a reusable bubble bar equivalent of the Screamo bath bomb but it didn’t sell as well due to it falling apart immediately after first use, sometimes even before you’d had a chance to use it like mine did, (the reason why I never got round to reviewing it).
Even with this at the back of my mind I was still keen to give the Screamo bath bomb a go.
The Screamo bath bomb contains a long list of ingredients, some of them include; benzoin resinoid, ylang ylang and almond essential oils. It has a rich and incredibly sharp, cherry-almond scent. It’s mouth-wateringly yummy!
At 120g the Screamo bath bomb fits snuggly in my hand it’s a little bit bigger than the Butterbear bath bomb and a little bit smaller than the Ghostie bath bomb.
With Screamo’s contrasting white and royal-blue colours I knew that the bath art it would create would be dramatic to say the least.
As soon as the Screamo bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of royal-blue foam. Blue bubbles slowly fizzle out of it as the bath bomb floats upon the surface of the water.
The photos I have included in this review do the Screamo bath bomb no justice at all. While the bath art it creates is mainly blue with small streaks of white and not a rainbow of different colours, it was still incredibly mesmerising to watch as it slowly spun around, swirling gently in the water.
Underneath the blue foam, the water turns a deeply inviting, royal-blue.
As the bath bomb slowly dissolves away the bath water becomes softer and softer, almost silky like. Screamo takes a good 10 minutes to fully dissolve taking a lot longer than the other new Halloween bath bomb, Big Foot.
As I said earlier, the Screamo bath bomb creates the most incredibly soft bathwater and I found that it left my skin feeling hydrated and silky-smooth too.
The bath bombs delicious cherry-almond scent is what really wins it for me though. That moreish scent can still be smelt on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day once you’re out of the bath too.
Overall, I really enjoyed the Screamo bath bomb, the bath art wasn’t a rainbow of colours but sometimes, less really is more!
