Love Bug Bath Bomb from Lush

The Love Bug Bath Bomb is brand new to Lush and is a standout product from their 2022 Valentine’s Day range.

If you’ve been a Lush customer for some time and have shopped from past Valentine’s Day lines before now, you may have a slight feeling of déjà vu when giving the Love Bug bath bomb a sniff – and for good reason too… The Love Bug bath bomb shares its scent with the past and very popular Valentine’s Day product, the Love Boat bath bomb!

Colour wise, the Love Bug bath bomb is almost identical to Love Boat, the only real difference between the two bath bombs is the most obvious; One is a boat the other is a car and the second less obvious fact, the Love Bug bath bomb isn’t decorated with the confetti hearts like the Love Boat was.

I’ll admit, I was a little sad to see that the Love Boat bath bomb hadn’t made a return, but all was not lost with the Love Bug bath bomb being so similar.

The Love Bug bath bomb contains rose, organic sweet orange and Sicilian lemon oils. Its scent is a zesty and floral affair. The Sicilian lemon and sweet orange oil dominate the Love Bug bath bombs scent, it does however have a slight floral element to it too, the rose oil adds a soft sherbet like layer. I find its scent uplifting, refreshing and cheery.

Once the Love Bug bath bomb touches your bath water you are greeted with an explosion of thin pink, yellow and blue foam. As it fizzles away, the blue and yellow colours blend together creating streaks of green and the blue and pink blend together creating streaks of purple too.

The Love Bug is a quick fizzer taking approximately 7 minutes to fully dissolve. Its refreshing scent is strong throughout the whole bath and I can still smell it on my skin several hours after getting out.

The water left behind is silky smooth and a clear dark pink colour. The rose oil in it makes it a very soothing experience for Winter frazzled skin. After a good soak in a Love Bug bath, I feel revived and refreshed.

I didn’t get great photos of the Love Bug bath bomb in action, it’s a bath bomb you must experience for yourself to truly appreciate its beauty. For a bath bomb that is just pink, yellow, and blue I couldn’t quite believe all of the colours that exploded out of it. The rainbow of colours was just as good as those created by the actual Lush rainbow-bath-bombs, Toby’s Magic Cow and Follow the White Rabbit.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Love Bug bath bomb. It’s pretty much the same as Love Boat so if you are disappointed it didn’t make a return this year (or if you are looking for a product that gives you a similar experience) make sure you give the Love Bug bath bomb a go!

Mr Loba Loba Bath Bomb from Lush

As soon as the 2022 Lush Valentine’s Day products were revealed, I knew that the Mr Loba Loba Bath Bomb would be the first one that I grabbed. As you can see from the above and below photos, Mr Loba Loba is a gorgeous little lobster shaped bath bomb with a sprinkling of biodegradable red confetti hearts decorating its body.

The Mr Loba Loba bath bomb is approximately 100g, similar in size to the Sleepy Bear and Tick-Tock bath bombs.

Mr Loba Loba is a gloriously bright red and as I mentioned earlier, is lightly decorated with a sprinkling of confetti hearts. I love the inclusion of these in bath bombs, just like the bath bombs that contain popping candy I feel the confetti hearts add something a little extra for your visual pleasure.

The Mr Loba Loba bath bomb contains benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and almond essential oil. Its scent is sweet yet warm. It smells almost like a blend of vanilla and some type of berry fruit, the almond essential oil adds a nuttiness to its fragrance, rounding off the tonka absolute. It’s incredibly moreish and a scent I would like to see more of from Lush.

What with the recent price hike on all of Lush’s products, I’d say that the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb is actually a quite reasonable price. I can see a lot of Lush’s future bath bombs being of a similar size just so Lush don’t begin to price themselves out. I don’t normally mention exact prices in my reviews as Lush do change their prices a lot.

Sadly, bath bombs are single-use-products, and I can’t even see myself, (a self-confessed Lush addict) wanting to spend much more on a single bath bomb, maybe smaller Lush bath bombs like Mr Loba Loba are the way of the future, who knows?

As soon as the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of red foam. I think it might just be the foamiest bath bomb that I have ever used from Lush.

Like the Lucky Tiger bath bomb, Mr Loba Loba isn’t a bath art creator, its unique selling point is its enchanting scent and just how foamy it is. It makes the most incredibly soft water and leaves your skin super hydrated.

As the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb floats around your bath, the red confetti hearts begin to break away from the bath bomb slowly decorating the water with perfect little love-hearts.

For its size the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb takes a lot longer to dissolve than I expected – a good 5 minutes. As I said earlier, it’s the foamiest bath bomb I have used in a very long time, this foam makes the water so, so soft and hydrating. My skin loved it; I didn’t want to get out of the bath.

Eventually, (and only because the water got too cold) I did have to get out of the bath and pull the plug. The scent remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day and left it feeling silky smooth!

Overall, I adore the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb. It’s a fantastic, novelty addition to the Valentine’s line. I’d love to see it year in, year out but am trying to not get too attached as Lush have a habit of making products like this one-hit-wonders…

Lucky Tiger Bath Bomb from Lush

The Lucky Tiger Bath Bomb is a product collaboration between Lush Japan and Lush’s Greater China teams to create an inclusive product specifically for the Lunar New Year celebrations. It was released at the start of January 2022 which happens to be the year of the tiger.

Last year, Lush created another product for Luna new year with the release of the Dragon Legend reusable bubble bar. I was incredibly excited to see that Lush had decided to celebrate the Lunar New Year again for 2022.

The Lucky Tiger bath bomb is the standard sized 200g bath bomb. It’s created in the shape of a tiger’s face. As a self-confessed crazy-cat-lady I of course couldn’t resist picking up a couple. It’s such a beautiful bath bomb with its big-bold cat eyes, tiger-stripes, and whiskers!

Lucky Tiger is a bright orange bath bomb coated in plastic-free, shimmery golden pigment (mica). It’s an incredibly sparkly bath bomb so not for the faint hearted, ALTHOUGH – I always feel like I must explain in my reviews of products like this that there’s no need to be afraid of anything sparkly.

When I first got into Lush the thought of using ‘glittery’ products terrified me. However, it’s not at all scary and after just one bath I was sold on all things shimmery. Bath bombs such as the Lucky Tiger make for very pleasant experiences, it’s not like jumping into a giant pot of glitter, I promise.

Lucky Tigers scent is from Lush’s scent family, Karma. It is a hugely popular, Lush-retro-fragrance that has featured in copious amounts of different Lush products, in several different formats over the years. The most recent Karma scented product that I have reviewed from Lush is the Karma Yantra bath bomb.

The Lucky Tiger bath bomb contains a long list of ingredients; Patchouli, Brazilian orange, lavandin, Siberian fir needle, lemongrass, and elemi oil. On paper you’d think all of those oils would clash terribly but in reality – all of them blended together work beautifully. Each ingredient compliments one another perfectly.

I’d say the most prominent ingredients to come through when I sniff the Lucky Tiger bath bomb are the patchouli, orange, and pine oils. The Karma scent is super refreshing – which I think is down to the orange and pine oils. The patchouli oil also adds a peppery almost spicy layer to its fragrance too. It quite simply oozes happiness and good vibes fitting right in with the ‘lucky’ theme!

As soon as the Lucky Tiger bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a ferocious hiss. Small orange bubbles fizzle out of it as the water quickly turns bright orange. The golden shimmer also starts to spread around the water, swooshing it around and watching the sparkles catch the light is incredibly relaxing.

You don’t get any bath art out of the Lucky Tiger bath bomb and it’s not a foamy bath bomb either, the star point of the Lucky Tiger is its scent and how lovely it leaves your skin feeling. It’s a fairly fast fizzer leaving you with more time to immerse yourself in its ‘good vibe’ waters.

The Lucky Tiger bath bombs scent remained on my skin right through until the next day, I could still smell it on my dressing gown 2 days later too. It left my skin smooth and refreshed looking.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Lucky Tiger bath bomb, it’s a fantastic product inspired by a beautifully reflective and special time of year. I am looking forward to seeing what Lush come up with for Luna new year, 2023!

Unicorn Poop Bath Bomb from Lush

The Unicorn Poop Bath Bomb first became available in the UK at the end of November 2021. If you know me, you’ll know I’m absolutely obsessed with anything to do with unicorns, saying I was excited to try the Unicorn Poop bath bomb would be an understatement indeed.

Much like the Follow the Rabbit and Snowman Dreaming bath bombs, Unicorn Poop is full of a rainbow of colours. It is shaped like the poo emoji with pink, yellow, purple and blue swirls in its twisted top. Just looking at it shows you exactly how the Unicorn Poop bath bomb got its name.

The Unicorn Poop bath bomb doesn’t share its scent with the Unicorn Horn bubble bar or the Unicorn lip scrub – it actually belongs to the Cocktail scent family. The Cocktail scent is very similar to the scent found in the Fizzbanger bath bomb BUT not nearly as fruity, its scent is a lot sharper and has musky elements too.

I’d go as far as to say that the Unicorn Poop’s scent, out of all of the scents Lush have created over the years is one of the most mature to date. I therefore find it a puzzling scent choice considering that the bath bomb is literally named after unicorn poo, something that would appeal more to children than senior citizens.

It contains calamine powder, jasmine absolute and the following essential oils – bergamot, davana and ylang ylang.

I’m always honest in my reviews and I hate to start 2022 with a wishy-washy review but the Unicorn Poop bath bomb wasn’t as good in the bath as I had imagined it to be.

Upon hitting the water the Unicorn Poop bath bomb has a little eruption of pink and white foam. Purple foam then begins to trickle out of it too. As the Unicorn Poop bath bomb dances around in your bath water more colours come out of it, although only small amounts.

The bath art side of this bath bomb isn’t nearly as good as I’d had hoped a ‘rainbow bath bomb’ like this to be. It bubbles away until it fully dissolves leaving you with pearly pink bath water.

The Unicorn Poop bath bomb takes approximately 15 minutes to fully dissolve, for such a slow fizzing bath bomb I really did expect more bath art, I’m wondering if the pastel tones of the colours is what dampens the bath art down somewhat.

Once the Unicorn Poop bath bomb has fully dissolved the water is silky smooth. I didn’t find the water very moisturising but it didn’t dry out my skin at all.

Sadly, the Unicorn Poop bath bomb isn’t one I’d get again. It was perfectly marketed to me as a unicorn-mad Lush fan but in my opinion the scent just didn’t fit within the theme of it at all. I’d have also liked to have seen more bath art from it considering its name and how colourful it is.

Lush have recently released some amazing rainbow coloured bath bombs that are so much better than Unicorn Poop. It’s very rare for me to dislike a bath bomb but Unicorn Poop didn’t captivate me in the same way as most other Lush bath bombs do.

Snowball Bath Bomb from Lush

The Snowball Bath Bomb is yet another brand-new product from this year’s Christmas line-up.

There has never been a bath bomb quite like it either; Each Snowball bath bomb is hand pressed without a bath-bomb-mould so that it looks just like an actual snowball.

I promise they aren’t just ‘imperfect’ bath bombs made by the Lush manufacturing team after helping themselves to the whisky that was meant to be left out for Santa!

The Snowball bath bomb contains eucalyptus, lemongrass, and peppermint oil. Its scent is fresh and crisp which is just how I would also describe snow;

Eucalyptus is a popular ingredient to use if you’re feeling under the weather and features heavily in anything made to help manage the symptoms of a common cold, this is due to its decongestant and antibacterial properties. It is perfect for this time of year.

The Snowball is a sharply scented and incredibly refreshing bath bomb, its scent alone can help clear and balance your mind as well as banishing away any Winter blues.

The Lush website tells you to not be fooled by the Snowball bath bombs initial ‘low-key’ appearance, it may look just like a snowball but inside it’s a whole different story.

As soon as the Snowball bath bomb touches your bath water you are greeted with a burst of ice-white-foam. The Snowball bath bomb floats around for a good 5 minutes spilling out just white, then suddenly blue foam begins to spill out of it too.

At first, I thought that the blue foam wasn’t going to last for very long, but I was wrong… If you’ve had the pleasure of using the Frozen bath bomb before, you wouldn’t be completely bonkers to think that the bath art photos below were created by the Frozen bath bomb.

Surprisingly once it gets going, the Snowball bath bombs bath art is almost identical to that created by the Frozen bath bomb. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of the beautiful, blue and shimmery bath art swirls.

The bath art seems to go on forever, after about 10 minutes the Snowball bath bomb is finally fully dissolved.

The water left behind is soft and cooling on the skin, it isn’t quite as sparkly as the water left behind from the aforementioned Frozen bath bomb but it is a very similar blue, with a slight pearlescent shimmer.

Out of all of the new bath bombs from this year’s Winter line, the Snowball bath bomb was the one that surprised me the most. Just like the So White bath bomb from the 2016 Winter line I was not expecting such colourful insides!

The scent is also beautiful and suits the idea of snow perfectly. Alongside the latest version of the Jingle Bells bath bomb I don’t think there has ever been a more powerfully awakening duo, both are well worth a try and 2 products that I’d love to see come back next year too.

Jingle Bells Bath Bomb from Lush

This year the Jingle Bells Bath Bomb has made a return, it however has a very different scent from before. Jingle Bells now shares its scent with the Baked Alaska soap. – If you really miss the old version of the Jingle Bells bath bomb try the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb as it shares its scent with the older version of the Jingle Bells bath bomb.

The Jingle Bells bath bomb is unique to any other bath bomb currently available from Lush. It is hand pressed into a bell-shaped mould.

Inside of it is a small amount of open space (however, it’s not completely hollow) a small amount of loose bath bomb chunks is in this little pocket of space inside of Jingle Bells. If you shake the bath bomb, it’s just like a bell, although to me, it sounds closer to a maraca! 😉

The Jingle Bells bath bomb is white all over with a red bow on its top. Stars are etched into its top half while the bottom of it looks just like a mini circular-bell does, with 4 holes in a cross shape.

When the first version of the Jingle Bells bath bomb was released, it was a lot bigger, now it is the same size as the average sized bath bomb (as a reference, this is the same size as the bestselling Twilight and Intergalactic bath bombs).

Being honest, as always – I much prefer it in its smaller sized format. There’s not much difference between the 2 but I think the smaller bath bombs seem to give you the better bath art.

The Jingle Bells bath bomb contains lemon myrtle, ylang ylang and grapefruit oils. Its scent is a strong citrusy one, so strong that I can immediately smell it as soon as I walk into a room that it is in.

I’ve seen on the Lush website that quite a few customers have said its citrusy scent doesn’t fit in with the Christmas theme at all. I couldn’t disagree more, the scent is perfect for this time of year, it really wakes me up and we all know how hard it is to get out of bed on a cold Winters morning!

I’d go as far as to say it’s even more awakening than the Avobath bath bomb.

As soon as the Jingle Bells bath bomb meets your bath water there is an explosion of bright white foam. The first bit of colour to appear from it is from the red bow that sits on its top.

Slowly but surely. Red and white foam begin to make a swirling pattern as the Jingle Bells bath bomb dances around the water.

After a few minutes the red seems to dwindle a little, mostly white foam comes out of the bath bomb. Just as you think the bath art show is over blue foam bursts out of the bath bomb too.

Red, white, and blue spill out of the bath bomb as its bobs around your bath, my pictures do the pretty-bath-art that the Jingle Bells bath bomb creates no justice at all!

The colours clash so well making the patterns it creates really pop.

Underneath the bath art, your bath water begins to change colour, the water left behind is a beautiful shade of milky violet.

The Jingle Bells bath bomb is fully dissolved within 10 minutes. Its super awakening scent fills your bathroom, banishing away all of your Winter blues.

The milky violet water is also silky smooth, my skin laps it up; Normally the citrusy products don’t hydrate my skin as well as others, but my skin feels and smells fabulous after a good soak in a Jingle Bells bath.

Overall, I am really impressed with the new version of the Jingle Bells bath bomb, the scent is a huge improvement in my eyes, and I have my fingers crossed it comes back in next years’ Winter line too!

Hey! Hollywood! Bath Bomb from Lush

I first got a hold of the Hey! Hollywood! Bath Bomb when Lush’s advent calendar arrived on my doorstep back in late August 2021. You’ll find this refreshing and festive treat behind door number 8.

I held off on reviewing the Hey! Hollywood! Bath bomb until now as, as you can see from the photos in this post, its design screams Christmas.

For the purpose of this review, I am going to refer to Hey! Hollywood! Without the exclamation marks from now on as they’re driving me mad and I’m not even 100 words into my review of the bath bomb yet… 😆

The Hey Hollywood bath bomb is a gorgeous shimmery green with a red-berried holly-crown on its top. At the time of writing this review it is currently available to purchase in store and online, although, with Christmas fast approaching it won’t be available for much longer!

The Hey Hollywood bath bomb contains peppermint oil and shares its scent with an old Lush product that was most recently in November 2021’s Lush Kitchen subscription box – the Salt and Peppermint Bark body scrub. 

Its scent is a subtle, sweet-peppermint fragrance. It is so delicate that I found when I left the Hey Hollywood bath bomb amongst other Lush products, the scents from the other products completely masked it’s fragrance making it almost impossible to smell.

It’s the complete opposite of the dominatingly sharp Intergalactic bath bomb – another peppermint based Lush product.

Hey Hollywood is the same size as the average sized bath bomb, it fits snuggly in my hand. Just like when I first used the, The Golden Pudding bath bomb, I expected a lot more foam than there was when I first put it into the water.

I thought that I had sadly got a dud bath bomb – however, when I let go of it, against all odds, it continued to float. At first all that really came out of the bath bomb was a stream of red bubbles, the green was barely noticeable.

The Hey Hollywood bath bomb was a very slow dissolver. Looking through my photos and checking their time stamps, it was well over 10 minutes before it had completely gone. It took a good 5 minutes of it being in the water before the bath art really started to put on a show.

Blue, purple, pink and light green patterns shoot out of Hey Hollywood creating a beautiful blanket of bath art on the surface of the water.

Once the Hey Hollywood bath bomb has fully dissolved, the water left behind is just like the end-bathwater created by the original Lord of Misrule bath bomb, something I know a lot of customers will be very pleased with since the Lord of Misrules much-protested update this year…

It’s not the same but if it’s the end-watercolour you miss about the Lord of Misrule, Hey Hollywood is well worth a go!

The beautiful, wine-coloured bath water shimmers as you swish it around. The soft peppermint scent really comes to life with the heat of the bath water too, it’s a super-refreshing bathing experience.

I didn’t find its waters particularly moisturising, but it didn’t dry my skin out either. I’d like to try a few more of the Hey Hollywood bath bombs as the bath art photos I have included in this review do not do the bath bomb any justice at all.

There’s no guarantee that the Hey Hollywood bath bomb will return next Winter. It’s rare that the new bath bombs ever do, I however have my fingers crossed as Hey Hollywood is one of the best bath bombs to come out of 2021.

Snow Fairy Lights Bath Bomb from Lush

Another day, another review on a limited-edition, Winter-product that shares its scent with the cult classic, Snow Fairy shower gel… The Snow Fairy Lights Bath Bomb is new to Lush this Winter (2021). Designed in the same way as the Love Locket Amazeball bath bomb, I was very excited to get my hands on one.

Just like the Love Locket bath bomb that I mentioned above, the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb is both pink and blue externally. It’s just like all of Lush’s previously released amazeballs, Lush seem to have just dropped the ‘amazeball’ term in the bath bombs name.

Lush’s Amazeballs and the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb have a super fancy design. They are hollow inside and each have a small, bath-bomb-lid – In Snow Fairy Lights case it is the little blue snowflake you can see in the above and below photos.

Inside of the hollow Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb are mini-bath-bomb-circles in various colours. You can see them in the photo below.

There’s no right or wrong way to use the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb. Some sprinkle the mini-bath-bomb-circles into the bath water before adding the rest of the bath bomb, while others put it in all together.

Some even use each bit in separate baths. – A good idea if you want to spread the product out over several baths rather than just the one.

The Snow Fairy scent is best described as a sickly-sweet blend of candy floss and bubblegum.

I don’t always favour the super-sweet-scented Lush products HOWEVER, with the Snow Fairy scent featuring so heavily in so many of Lush’s products, it’s almost impossible to avoid, especially in the Winter.

Over the years I have slowly warmed to the scent. The fact that all-things Snow-Fairy-scented are almost (mostly) bright pink (my favourite colour) really helps sell them to me too.

I was very excited for the bath art from the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb as I expected it to be on par with the bath bomb I mentioned at the start of this review, the Love Locket bath bomb.

Upon hitting the water, the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb created an explosion of pink foam. The Snow Fairy scent fills your bathroom as it starts to fizzle away. Sadly, this is where the show ended for me.

The photo above was taken within the first 15 to 20 seconds of placing the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb into the bath water. I let go of it immediately after that, readying myself for some serious bath art however all of the bath-bomb-pieces sunk to the bottom of the bath; The small coloured bits, the pink star-piece and the blue snowflake simply just disappeared. There wasn’t a single bit of bath art at all. 🙁

The water left behind by the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb is a super-shimmery pink. Its scent remained throughout the bath, and it still lingered in the air for a short while after it had gone down the plug hole too.

My skin wasn’t particularly hydrated after my bath, but the scent lingered on my skin for a few hours after using it.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t very impressed with the Snow Fairy Lights bath bomb once I had given it a go. I much prefer the ordinary Snow Fairy bath bomb as it’s cheaper and has a little more to give during use. I wholeheartedly recommend the Snow Fairy bath bomb and Snow Fairy Roll bubble bar over Snow Fairy Lights.

Never-the-less I do think that the Snow Fairy lights bath bomb is a good ‘novelty product’ that I think children could potentially quite enjoy because of it being in several pieces.

The Golden Pudding Bath Bomb from Lush

If you’re wondering where the Golden Wonder and Luxury Lush Pud bath bombs are in Lush’s Winter collection this year, you’re not the only one. Sadly, they got the axe, I’d never thought I’d see the day but here we are…

The loss of both of those bath bombs really has left a huge hole in the Winter collection, Lush however didn’t take them both away completely; They have combined the 2 together to make The Golden Pudding Bath Bomb.

The Golden Pudding bath bomb shares its scent with the now discontinued-Winter-product, the Golden Wonder bath bomb and its shape and design (as a pudding-shaped-bath-bomb) is inspired by the other discontinued Winter bath bomb that I mentioned above, the Luxury Lush Pud.

Golden Pudding is not quite as colourful on the outside as the Luxury Lush Pud but you can easily see the resemblance.

Now you know the background of how the Golden Pudding was created from 2 older bath bombs, I want you to forget that it’s a combination of 2 and see it for its own bath bomb.

I feel that if you spend too much time comparing them together, it’ll take away anything special about it. The Golden Pudding bath bomb deserves a fair review without the pressures of it being just as good as older products, so I am keeping an open mind for this review, and I’d like for you to do that too!

The Golden Pudding bath bomb is mostly golden, with a white top and mini candy holly-shaped-crown. You’ll recognise its scent from a number of different past Winter products such as the Celebrate shower gel and Buck’s Fizz body conditioner.

Ingredients wise, The Golden Pudding contains – sweet wild orange, wine lees and lime oils. It’s a tangy citrusy scent with a warm, boozy punch.

As soon as the, The Golden Pudding bath bomb comes into contact with the water it starts to slowly fizzle away. Being honest as always, I was expecting a little more foam.

I almost thought it was a dud bath bomb at first because it just wasn’t as explosive as I was used to from a Lush bath bomb.

It didn’t take long for the bath bomb to start spinning. Within approximately 2 minutes the bath bomb got a lot more exciting. A burst of unexpected-orange-foam suddenly spills out of The Golden Pudding, followed by a stream of pink foam too.

My earlier assumption of the bath bomb being a dud couldn’t have been more wrong. The bath art seemed to just go on forever. Beautiful spinning patterns of hot pink, yellow and orange decorate the waters surface. I couldn’t stop taking photographs.

The water slowly turns a bright shade of blood-red-orange, bath art wise the, The Golden Pudding reminded me a lot of the, The Enchanter bath bomb, (which so happens to be a favourite of mine! 

The Golden Pudding took a good 10 minutes to fully dissolve.

Its scent lasts throughout your whole bath and lingers in the air once it has gone down the drain too. Laying back in its sweet yet spicy-warm waters always leaves me super relaxed.

Its silky-smooth waters are also really soothing on your Winter-battered-skin. Its beautiful scent remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day too, something that’s quite unusual for a citrus based product.

Overall I do really like the, The Golden Pudding bath bomb, I do however feel that I need to mention one thing. We have another new bath bomb in this years (2021) collection that produces very similar bath art, the You Shall Go to The Ball bath bomb.

I think maybe if they both had different colours in them it would have added a little more variety into the collection. The bath art produced by both are still unquestionably good, I just think different colours would have catered to more customers maybe.

Will the, The Golden Pudding bath bomb be a one hit wonder like so many other past Winter bath bombs? Only Lush can answer that. I would be sad if it didn’t return next Winter. It has a beautiful scent; One I can’t imagine a Christmas without!

Rangoli Dreams Bath Bomb from Lush

This year Lush have released the Rangoli Dreams Bath Bomb in celebration of Diwali, the festival of lights.

The bath bombs name and design are inspired by Rangoli, an art form that originates from the Indian subcontinent, the patterns in Rangoli artwork are created on the floor or on a table using materials such as ground rice and flower petals.

It’s well worth doing a little research into the Rangoli art form as all of the creations are truly spectacular to look at. The Rangoli bath bomb is absolutely stunning and intricately detailed. It’s orange and yellow and is decorated with a simple sprinkle of shimmering gold on its top.

Rangoli Dreams is rather large, just about fitting in my small hand. It’s a flat bath bomb instead of the standard round shape, very similar to the likes of the Punkin Pumpkin and Karma Yantra bath bombs. The top of it is yellow and the base of it, orange.

The Rangoli Dreams bath bomb contains popping candy, coconut milk powder, rice starch, benzoin resinoid and the following oils – green Mandarin, rose, cardamom and almond.

Its scent is sophisticated yet delicate, my nose mostly picks up on the cardamom and sweetness of the green Mandarin but the rose oil gives it an almost powdery edge. It’s very unlike what I would normally go for at Lush but I couldn’t resist trying it and I am so pleased that I did.

As soon as the Rangoli Dreams bath bomb meets your bath water you are greeted with an explosion of yellow and orange foam. Slowly but surely the gold shimmer on the top of the bath bomb bleeds into the water creating the most stunning swirling bath art.

The shimmering water and the swirling patterns the bath bomb creates while floating around your bath is simply mesmerising.

The popping candy starts to snap, crackle a pop within about 30 seconds of the bath bomb being put into the water, it starts off slow but doesn’t take long to take over the show, bath art and popping candy wise, the Rangoli Dreams bath bomb really puts on a show.

With the Rangoli Dreams bath bomb being flat, I expected it to dissolve fairly quickly it however stands its ground, not completely disappearing for a full 10 minutes.

Laying back in its cardamom-rich scented waters is truly relaxing, I always prefer hot-hot baths as I find the heat really helps sore muscles. Rangoli Dreams and hot-hot water are a match made in heaven.

The added coconut milk powder also adds a silkiness to the bath water, my skin has never felt softer after a bath. I’m really glad that I ordered 2 of these bath bombs as it is an incredibly fun bath bomb and quite unique to any others currently available.

Its scent although a lot more subtle than the bath bomb itself, stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day. The popping candy also never seemed to stop, still crackling away as the bath water drained from my tub.

Overall, I am really impressed with the Rangoli Dreams bath bomb, and I hope it comes back again next year. I’d love to see some more Diwali products in the future and am interested in finding out whether Lush will be using the Rangoli Dreams scent in other future products too.
