Wild Butterfly Bath Bomb from Lush

Wild Butterfly Bath Bomb
The Wild Butterfly Bath Bomb is 1 of 3 butterfly shaped bath bombs from Lush’s 2019 Mother’s day line. The carefully crafted, butterfly shaped bath bombs are far from the likes of the standard round ones such as the Dragon’s Egg or Intergalactic.

With the use of 3D printers, Lush have been experimenting with their bath-bomb-moulds, trying out lots of different and super-intricate designs. Through the use of these 3D printers Lush created the beautiful Butterfly bath bombs.

The butterfly bath bombs have proven very popular because of their beautiful and clever design, Lush were very wise when they made the decision to make and release 4 different butterfly bath bombs. (I’ll talk about the 4th butterfly bath bomb that isn’t a part of the Mothers day line in its own review very soon.)

Like the Rose Butterfly bath bomb, Wild Butterflies name doesn’t give much away when it comes down to guessing its ingredients; Containing sweet wild orange, petitgrain and olive leaf absolute its scent is a cocktail of sweet-citrus-fruit blended with subtle warming and earthy tones.

It’s sunshine-yellow and shimmery-orange design makes for some super sunny bath art.

As soon as the Wild Butterfly bath bomb touches the water an array of orange and yellow foam bursts out of it. A thin layer of colourful, silky soft foam slowly spreads across the waters surface as it slowly bubbles away.

The Wild Butterfly bath bombs supposedly shares its scent with the Berry Berry Christmas shower gel, until the bath bomb came in contact with the water this wasn’t at all apparent to me.

Once wet, my nose could finally detect the products’ familiarities, I however still don’t believe it is the exact same scent, Wild Butterflies scent hasn’t got the same sourness as the aforementioned shower gels.

The Wild Butterfly bath bomb is a fairly slow fizzer, ensuring that you have plenty of time to snap some bath art shots if that’s your type of thing. I know most people like to just lay back and relax, watching the bath bomb put on its show.

As the Wild Butterly bath bomb dissolves, it slowly turns your bath water a bright and very warm orange colour. The shade of orange reminds me of the bath water left behind by the Brightside bubble bar. I have yet to try both Brightside and Wild Butterfly together but I imagine they would work very well together.

A good soak in a Wild Butterfly bath leaves your skin brighter and super-refreshed. Its subtle scent also remains on your skin long after leaving your bath tub.

Overall I am very impressed with the Wild Butterfly bath bomb. Unfortunately for me the UK’s Mother’s Day has been and gone but I know some other countries still haven’t had their Mother’s Day yet. Please make sure that you try this bath bomb at least once while you still can, I promise you won’t regret it!

NEW Groovy Kind of Love Bath Bomb from Lush

Groovy Kind of Love 2019 Bath Bomb

Lush love to confuse us but I’m going to attempt to unscramble the ‘Groovy’ confusion…  You may recognise the Groovy Kind of Love bath bomb from the Lush Summit event from a few years back.

The following year Lush decided to bring that Groovy Kind of Love bath bomb back but under a different name, All You Need is Love (and Peace). With the opening of the Harajuku store in Japan last year, we have however been presented with yet another rendition of this colourful bath bomb. It’s now back to its original name BUT has a brand new scent.

I haven’t got both products in front of me to compare as the latter was discontinued some time ago BUT the new Groovy Kind of Love bath bombs scent is supposedly similar, if not the same as the Pink Flamingo reusable bubble bar.

While I remember the Pink Flamingo having a fruity and oh-so-moreish scent, I don’t remember it being quite as good as the latest (and which I hope is the last) version of the Groovy Kind of Love bath bomb. Containing rosewood, bergamot and ylang ylang, chucking a Groovy Kind of Love bath bomb into your bath is said to be the perfect way of filling your bath tub with peace, love and positivity.

What first attracted me to the Groovy Kind of Love bath bomb was its beautiful, rainbow of colours. Piled high in the Lush Liverpool store last week, I couldn’t resist picking 2 up. There’s just something about rainbows and bright colours that cannot be ignored.

As soon as the Groovy Kind of Love bath bomb hits the water an explosion of colour fizzles out of it. I have to point out that although some people are disappointed with the bath bombs scent change, I believe the new fragrance suits it much better. It’s light, fruity and happy!

Another thing I have noticed about the newer bath bomb is the strength and boldness of its colours. The newest version of this bath bombs colours don’t wash each other out in the same way as the older versions did. I wasn’t expecting bath art nearly as good as this and couldn’t stop taking photographs.

The fruity bergamot scent of Groovy Kind of Love fills your bathroom as the bath bomb slowly dances around, I was completely mesmerised by both the scent and the pretty patterns it created.

Once fully dissolved the bath water is left a dark shade of orange, I am glad it didn’t turn the water a slushy grey like the The Experimenter bath bomb does. Often when so many colours feature in one product, the end result is quite dark, unrecognisable bath water. I always refer to it as an artists paint pallet after a long day of painting.

The orange water is also gloriously soft to touch, its scent and how it feels on my skin makes me think that this bath bomb is perfect for this time of year. Its scent has a gentle zestiness to it that stays on your skin for a good few hours after you’ve got out of the bath too.

Overall I think this is the best version of Groovy Kind of Love that Lush have created. I hope they never change it again as I’m sure I will soon grow tired of reviewing it, this blog post is post number 3 after all…

I definitely recommend giving the Groovy Kind of Love bath bomb a go, it has so much charm and the bath art it creates is incredible!

Rose Butterfly Bath Bomb from Lush

Rose Butterfly Bath Bomb

The Rose Butterfly Bath Bomb is 1 of 3 butterfly shaped bath bombs from Lush’s 2019 mother’s day line. The butterfly shaped bath bombs are far from the likes of the standard round ones such as the Avobath and Sex Bomb.

With the use of 3D printers, Lush have been experimenting with their non-virgin plastic bath bomb moulds, making lots of different and super-intricate designs. Through the use of these 3D printers Lush product inventor Gary Shears created the beautiful Butterfly bath bombs!

With a name like ‘Rose Butterfly’ I had decided before I had even read the bath bombs ingredients list that it would share its scent or be similar to the scent of the Rose Jam shower gel, I was wrong, so, so wrong…

Once my Rose Butterfly bath bomb arrived I was shocked to discover that its scent was reminiscent of the Butterball bath bomb. Although its ingredients list says otherwise, I do not think I could tell the difference between the two if I was presented them both while blind folded.

Sure, Rose Butterflies scent has a little more of a floral-fruity tone to it but its scent is so alike to Butterball, even my husband connected the two on first sniff, unprompted. Containing Sicilian lemon and rose oil the Rose Butterfly doesn’t smell like I think it should at all.

It just goes to show what different quantity amounts of ingredients can do, if you’re not a huge fan of floral or rose scents, (as crazy as it sounds) the Rose Butterfly might be a good choice for you.

As soon as the Rose Butterfly bath bomb touches the water an array of blue, purple and pink foam bursts out of it. A thin layer of colourful, silky soft foam spreads across the waters surface as the Rose Butterfly bath bomb slowly bubbles away.

The blues, purples and pink colours work really well together. The clash of colours make for some very impressive bath art. I couldn’t help but ‘ooo!’ at it as it bobbed around my bath, slowly dissolving while turning the bath water a very impressive and bold, dark blue.

The Rose Butterfly bath bomb is a fairly slow fizzer, ensuring that you have plenty of time to snap some bath art shots if that’s your type of thing… I know most people like to just lay back and relax, watching the bath bomb dance around the water.

A good soak in a Rose Butterfly bath leaves your skin soft and refreshed. It is also incredibly hydrating which is something I love in a bath bomb. Overall I am very impressed with the Rose Butterfly and I am looking forward to reviewing the other butterfly bath bombs for you all on here in the not so distant future! 😊

Magma Bath Bomb from Lush

Magma Bath Bomb

The Magma Bath Bomb is one of the first products I grabbed when I visited Lush Liverpool on its opening day last month.

Originally it was an exclusive to the Lush Harajuku store in Japan but because it’s 30 years since the bath bomb was invented by Lush’s very own Mo Constantine, Lush have put all of the Harajuku exclusive bath bombs up online making them available to purchase everywhere.

Magma shares its scent with the Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar which happens to be one of my favourites. Using it helps ease the back and rib pain that I suffer with due to my medical conditions.

Containing cinnamon, ginger and peppermint oil, Magma also shares most of the same ingredients as the Wiccy Magic Muscles massage bar.

Cinnamon and ginger are the perfect ingredients for warming up tired aching muscles as they stimulate your blood circulation melting all muscle tension away. Mixed in with the peppermint the Magma bath bomb is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to deep muscle relaxation.

Magma’s scent is quite the acquired taste, if you favour the spicier Lush scents such as those found in the Hot Toddy shower gel and Christmas Sweater bath bomb then you will most likely really enjoy the Magma bath bomb. It’s a very warm scent, so much so it almost tickles my nose.

Designed to look like a burning ball of lava the Magma bath bomb is quite unique to anything Lush have ever released before. Its orange shell has cracks in showing its yellow and gold interior, imitating flowing lava.

As soon as the Magma bath bomb hits the water a burst of thick orange foam spills out of it, slowly the orange foam thins out and yellow and paler orange streaks appear from it too.

What I wasn’t expecting from Magma was the amazing bath art it created; With it being such a slow fizzer I couldn’t help but enjoy the show it put on.

The scent of the Magma bath bomb lasts throughout the whole bath. There’s nothing quite like sinking yourself into the Magma bath bombs waters, it’s like an all over massage.

As I mentioned earlier, when soaking in its waters you can literally feel the tension of the day vacating your body.

I was very happy to find that the Magma bath bombs scent also stayed on my skin long after I got out of the bath. Getting little whiffs of its scent throughout the rest of the day really helps drag out the relaxation side of this product.

The Magma bath bomb is a firm favourite for me, so much so that at the time of writing this review I already had 2 more ordered. The dark orange bath water it leaves you with is super soft too. It leaves my skin soothed, brighter and refreshed.

If you suffer with chronic pain or do a job that is physically demanding then I highly recommend trying this bath bomb. It took me a little while to get used to the ‘Wiccy Magic’ scent but now whenever I get a whiff of it I feel myself instantly relax.

Its warming effects lasts even once out of the bath and its because of this that I value the product so very much. The beautiful bath art it creates is just a very much appreciated added bonus. Great job Lush!

Lamb Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb from Lush

Lamb Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb

If like me you thought that we had seen the last of the ‘bomb bombs’ when 2018’s Winter line retired then you were wrong. Very, very wrong. 2 brand new bomb bombs have made an appearance for Lush’s Spring 2019’s line and being honest as always, I actually think that they are both much easier on the eye than the original three, dare I say the Lamb Bomb Bomb Bath Bomb is in fact quite cute…

The idea behind the Lush bomb bombs is that you get 2 bath bombs in one. One of the bath bombs is its head the other is its body, hence the ‘bomb bomb’. Ingredients wise the Lamb Bomb Bomb contains peppermint oil and chocolatey cocoa absolute, its scent is very similar if not the same as the Thundersnow bath bomb that came out a few Winters ago. A scent I have always enjoyed as it reminds me of a yummy mint chocolate desert!

I decided to use the head and body of the Lamb Bomb Bomb in just the one bath (see below photos) some people however spread their bomb bombs out over 2 baths, one day using the head and another day using its body. There’s no right or wrong way to use it, the choice is entirely yours.

As soon as the Lamb Bomb Bomb hits the bath water a burst of white and blue foam fizzles out of it. Much like the aforementioned bath bomb Thundersnow, Lamb Bomb Bomb creates quite a creamy-thick layer of foam that floats on the water surface. It actually reminds me of a jelly bath bomb ever so slightly, the foam doesn’t however last as long as jelly and slowly fizzles itself away into the bath water, it’s just like a squirt of cream that slowly melts into your cup of hot chocolate.

Once the Lamb Bomb Bomb has fully dissolved you are left with silky smooth, very light, creamy blue (almost white) bath water. I found the waters incredibly moisturising, it was nice to use a bath bomb that was this moisturising without chunks of oily butter in it like the Yog Nog bath bomb.

Lamb Bomb Bombs basic and very gentle list of ingredients left my skin fabulously hydrated and soft, I was very impressed and have since used another Lamb Bomb Bomb’s head and body separately (in 2 different baths) and my skin was left just as satisfyingly smooth to the touch.

Just like the Princess, Snowman and Santa Bomb Bomb‘s the vegan friendly, candy eyes are the last part of the bath bomb to melt away; Which might I add is just as creepy as it is charming. As a matter of fact, I actually really enjoyed using the Lamb Bomb Bomb bath bomb, I have warmed to the bomb bombs ever so slightly thanks to this ones design, it doesn’t look like it was all thrown together at the very last minute like the aforementioned bomb bombs released before it.

I am actually quite looking forward to reviewing the next bomb bomb after writing this review. It’s always double the pleasure when you love a bath bomb that you thought you wouldn’t like very much at all. Although we have the store-staple Intergalactic bath bomb when we fancy a bit of cooling peppermint, Lamb Bomb Bomb made a very nice minty infused change!

More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb from Lush

More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb

The very first thing I noticed when I was presented with the More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb was its delicious scent. I’m a huge fan of anything pink so the fact its scent was what first caught my undivided attention says a lot about this bath bomb.

The More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb is designed in the shape of a mini pink teapot, decorated with a pinch of blue cornflowers just like the Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb, it’s very easy on the eye.

The cornflowers aren’t its only decoration either, the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb also contains an Earl Grey tea bag in its centre, attached is its tea bag label that reads the bath bombs name.

The More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb also contains a long list of ingredients, these include bergamot oil, green tea absolute and neroli oil to name just a few. Its scent put simply is the most desirable  Lush scent I have ever come across.

A bold statement I know but it’s scent is just so incredibly moreish. There is just something about the blend of bergamot and neroli oil that is so addictive.

It has a pleasant fruity fragrance, sweet but subtle. It reminds me very much of the Chameleon bath bombs scent. I want to smell of it ALL the time.

If Lush do not recreate this bath bombs scent in to other product formats I’m going to be incredibly disappointed. After all, they did it for the Goddess bath bomb in a very short space of time, why not for this gorgeous bath bomb too? in my personal opinion this bath bomb is a thousand times better than the Goddess bath bomb, just saying…

Lush, I alongside many others within the community really want you to make this products scent into every format possible. PLEASE!!! – I can’t stress my need for this scent enough! As soon as the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb hits the water there is an explosion of pink foam.

The bath bomb dances around the waters surface with the tea bags label in tow. The blue cornflowers become loose and spread out on the waters surface. For its size the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb does fizzle away quite quickly.

Once the bath bomb has almost dissolved the Earl Grey tea bag escapes from its bath bomb exterior, spouting a little stream of bright orange bubbles from it. Something I wasn’t expecting at all.

The water left behind by this bath bomb is the most beautiful shade of pink that I have seen from any Lush product before. It rivals the pinkness left behind by both the Think Pink bath bomb and Comforter bubble bar. The water is silky smooth and my skin laps it up.

The very best thing about this bath bomb is that its scent stays with you on your skin hours and hours after getting out of the bath. I won’t bore you any more by talking about its scent, all I have left to say is it was very hard to not eat myself after using it. 😉

My only complaint about this bath bomb is its staggering price, at almost £8 per bath bomb I can’t afford to stock up on these before Mothers Day is through. Something that has really struck a chord with me.

I don’t normally mention price in my reviews but for this one I feel I had to, I plead once more to Lush, PLEASE MAKE MORE PRODUCTS WITH THE MORE TEA AND SYMPATHY BATH BOMBS SCENT! and make sure they’re a little bit cheaper too please! 😋

The Comforter Bath Bomb from Lush

the comforter bath bomb

Lush’s Winter 2018 line included a brand new version of the Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb, it now shares its scent with the, The Comforter bubble bar instead of the Twilight bath bomb.

I was therefore very surprised to see that Lush had created another bath bomb with the, The Comforter scent as a part of their November 2018, 12 community bath bomb favourites.

This is in no way a complaint, although I wasn’t at all sure in regards to Lush changing  the Luxury Lush Pud‘s scent. After I had, had a chance to use it, I realised how good the Comforter scent was in a bath bomb format! 😍

The possibility of having yet another bath bomb with the Comforter scent made me very, very happy. If you’re not familiar with the Comforter scent I would describe it as a blackcurrant lovers heaven.

The Comforter bath bomb contains mood brightening bergamot, cypress and cassis oil. This well thought out blend of ingredients gives the bath bomb a very distinctive blackcurrant fragrance.

The Comforter scent is often compared to getting a big and very loving hug and that’s exactly how I feel when I am submerged in Comforter scented bath water!

As soon as the Comforter bath bomb hits your bath water an explosion of pink bubbles fizzes out of it. Within just a few seconds of it entering your bath, the water becomes silky smooth while slowly turning a deep, dark shade of pink.

Not only do you benefit from this bath bombs beautiful and very berrylicious scent, but hours and hours after using it, you also have soft, smooth and gloriously hydrated skin too. Even the day after my skin still feels fabulous.

The Comforter bath bomb was a very slow fizzer, it danced around the waters surface for a good 10 minutes. Pink and white bubbles fizzled out of it while the bath bombs scent filled my bathroom.

The only negative thing I can mention about this bath bomb is the fact that a hard white chunk of it was still at the bottom of my bath when it was time to get out, it just wouldn’t dissolve. Not a huge issue really but I felt it was worth a mention.

Overall I was however very, very impressed with the, The Comforter bath bomb. Lush discontinued the Comforter shower cream a good few years ago now and using this bath bomb made me realise just how much I actually miss it.

Although at the time of writing this review the, The Comforter bath bomb is no longer available in the UK (it was a one off Lush Kitchen UK exclusive last November) it is available to purchase at the new Lush Harajuku store in Japan.

There are rumours that some of the bath bombs from the Harajuku store may be available to purchase elsewhere very soon, nothing has however been officially announced at the time of writing this review.

We will just have to keep our fingers crossed that the rumour is true and that the, The Comforter bath bomb will become readily available elsewhere in the not so distant future! 🤞
