The main reason that I subscribe to the Lush Kitchen’s monthly subscription box is because sometimes it makes it possible for customers to get their hands on long-gone, discontinued products from Lush’s past.
I was therefore over the moon to see that the Cobweb Bath Bomb had made it into the Lush Kitchen’s 2022 Halloween box. Before this, I believe it had only ever been available as an online exclusive several years ago.
This smoky-grey, shimmery cobweb shaped bath bomb really stood out amongst the other treats in the 2022 Halloween box, I couldn’t help but buy another on eBay as soon as my box arrived. The Cobweb bath bomb shares its scent with the Black Pearl shower gel, (a product I promise to review soon).
The Cobweb bath bomb contains black sugar, chamomile blue oil, lavender absolute, olibanum oil and myrrh resinoid. It has one of Lush’s most relaxing scent families and is a good alternative if you’re getting a little bored of the heavily featured, Sleepy scent.
Like the Sleepy scent found in the likes of the Twilight and Sleepy bath bombs, the Cobweb bath bombs scent is rich with lavender, the Cobweb bath bomb however smells more herbal and has a generous helping of calming chamomile in it too.
If each word in the dictionary had its own fragrance, I’d like to believe that the word ‘relax’ would smell just like the Cobweb bath bomb.
At 110g the Cobweb bath bomb sits in my hand snuggly, it’s a little bit bigger than the I Want My Mummy bath bomb and a little bit smaller than the Ghostie bath bomb. It’s definitely too small to be a cobweb created by the huge Tarantula shower jelly from this year’s Halloween range! 😉
While it’s quite a plain bath bomb, the etched-in cobweb design makes it truly unique to any other bath bomb ever released by Lush. I love that the Cobweb bath bomb also has a slight shimmer to it. It’s just like a cobweb with drops of morning dew decorating it.
The photos I have included in this review do the Cobweb bath bomb no justice at all. While it doesn’t create bath art it does create the most mesmerising cloudy grey water, it reminds me of a water colour painting of a stormy or cloudy day. The Cobweb bath bomb is an incredibly quick fizzer and has completely dissolved within about 2 minutes of it being placed into the bath water. The water it leaves behind is so very sparkly. Like a star-spangled dusky nights sky.
As I said earlier, the Cobweb bath bomb’s scent is one of (if not the) most relaxing scent-family created by Lush. Laying back in its waters leaves me ready for a deep-sleep marathon. Lush really need to bring this scent back to life and throw it in to other product formats.
Lush, please bring back more old school products like this in the Lush Kitchen subscription boxes, getting to try such incredible Lush treasures is a real treat that makes my soul so very happy!
