Dirty Bath Bomb from Lush

dirty bath bomb (1)The Dirty Bath Bomb is a brand new 2020 release and is a part of the small collection created for Father’s Day. Rumours are however circulating that the Dirty bath bomb will remain past Father’s Day, becoming a permanent fixture in all stores. 🤞

SPOILER ALERT – I have fallen in love with the Dirty bath bomb and am very excited just at the idea of it becoming a part of the permanent line. It is a great minty alternative to the Intergalactic bath bomb and I feel there is definitely a gap in the bath bomb collection for such a product. No other minty based bath bomb has impressed me more than both the Intergalactic and Dirty bath bombs.

Although I am really sad to see that the Dear John bath bomb didn’t make its way back into the Fathers day line this year, the Dirty bath bomb has well and truly softened the blow of its absence.

Containing spearmint, neroli, tarragon and sandalwood oil, Dirty’s fragrance is a super-cool mix of herby-spearmint. Just one sniff of it leaves me feeling refreshed.

Upon getting my last Lush delivery the Dirty bath bombs scent was the most dominant in a box full of several other bath bombs. It’s a powerful fragrance to say the least and one I can’t get enough of.

phonto-1

After picking up on its amazing scent the next thing I noticed about the Dirty bath bomb was how beautiful it was, like the Groovy Kind of Love bath bomb it has layers of several different colours; Dark blue, light blue, dark green, light green and yellow.

As soon as the Dirty bath bomb hits the water all of its cool and calming colours begin to fizzle out of it sending out thousands of tiny-hissing blue, green and yellow bubbles creating beautiful patterns on the water’s surface.

phonto-2

Although the Dirty bath bomb is quite a fast fizzer it puts on such a spectacular show, the bath water it leaves behind is a deep-dark-green, very similar to the shade of water that the Guardian of the Forest bath bomb creates.

I found myself running my hands through the soft-water, watching the green swirls as they caught the sunlight.

Even in a hot, hot bath my skin is left feeling cool as a cucumber once out of the Dirty bath bombs waters. I feel fresh and energised and more than ready to take on the day.

phonto-3

My skin laps up all of the goodness from the Dirty bath bombs ingredients, it feels soft, hydrated and appears brighter once I am out of the bath. Its awakening scent stays on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day too.

Overall I am really, really impressed with the Dirty bath bomb, there is not a single thing I would change about it. Its fragrance, the way it looks and performs in the bath and literally everything about it makes me so happy, what more can you need in a bath bomb? It’s perfect and has really helped me get out of my self-pitying quarantine slump, I really do hope it does become a main line product. Lush would be mad to not keep it around. 🤞

Snowman Dreaming Bath Bomb from Lush

Snowman Dreaming Bath Bomb
I’ll start this review off with a quick apology for not having this review out sooner, I’d written it and had completely forgotten to publish it. Hence the talk of Christmas during a pre-summer English heatwave! Sorry! 😋

The Snowman Dreaming Bath Bomb was one of my favourites from all of the brand new bath bombs released last year (2019). Considering how many new bath bombs were actually released last year (because of the 30 years of the bath bomb celebration) – This is a very bold statement indeed!

Borrowing its shape from the Snowman shower jelly, many long-term-Lush-fans were hit with a wave of Christmas nostalgia upon first sight of this bath bomb. Containing a delicate blend of cedarwood and lavender oils, Snowman Dreaming has a calm and gentle fragrance. It’s the perfect product to use just before bed, especially if you’re looking for a little help with dropping off.

Snowman Dreaming’s scent has been a popular topic amongst the Lush Community. When all of the Winter products were first delivered to me I had them all out ready to take photos. My nose kept telling my brain that one of the products smelt like the aforementioned Snowman shower jelly. Turns out my nose was actually picking up the Snowman Dreaming bath bomb.

It’s not the same scent by any means BUT I definitely get a hint of the shower jellies scent buried underneath all of that cedarwood. Its ingredients list does not back up my beliefs but my nose just won’t give up the ghost.

I thought I was going mad until I see on Instagram that several other people have said the same. There were also people who disagreed wholeheartedly too BUT there must be something about it for some of us to think the same unprompted?!

The Snowman Dreaming bath bomb is relatively small, I’d say that it is a very similar size to the retired Christmas-time, Butterbear bath bomb. Once placed in the bath water the Snowman Dreaming bath bomb explodes with colour. Pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues shoot out of its left side leaving behind a rainbow-stream of bath bomb foam.

Even though it is a small bath bomb it’s a very slow fizzer giving you more than enough time to appreciate the bath art it creates. The colours that come out of it are like none I have seen from a bath Bomb before, suddenly I don’t miss the, The Experimenter bath bomb as much anymore!

After I used the Snowman Dreaming bath bomb for the very first time, I put an order in for 2 more before my bath had even had time to drain. I then went on to pick up 2 more when I visited Lush’s Liverpool store in December.

They are visually irresistible, there is just something about the fresh, crisp-white-colour of it against the clash of all the colours of the rainbow at its side. It almost radiates happiness and really helped lift my spirits during the dull and dreary Winter.

Snowman Dreaming’s scent is subtle before, during and after use. I couldn’t smell it on my skin once I was out of the bath which is strange for Lush bath bombs. My skin was however left feeling smooth and looked noticeably brighter. I have my fingers crossed that this bath bomb comes back again as a part of the 2020 Winter collection, simple yet amazing! 🤞

Magic Rabbit Bath Bomb from Lush

Magic Rabbit Bath Bomb

First released in 2020, the Magic Rabbit Bath Bomb was a limited edition Easter product. We’re normally used to egg shaped bath bombs for Easter so this bath bomb was quite the surprise. Based on its looks alone, the bath bomb is truly unique to anything Lush have ever released for the Easter period before. It’s uniqueness left me even more curious to try it.

The Magic Rabbit bath bomb is designed to look just like a magicians hat. Out of the hat you can see 2 white and pink rabbit ears. Just like the Not So Secret Santa bath bomb, the Magic Rabbit has a paper insert with a hidden face. The hat part of this product is the bath bomb while the bunny ears are the paper insert, meaning the rabbit really is IN the magicians hat!

The Magic Rabbit bath bombs scent is beautifully fruity, containing tonka absolute, davana and lemon myrtle oils its fragrance is a happy and uplifting one. Many have compared its scent to the Space Girl bath bombs scent family and I can definitely smell the resemblance, Magic Rabbit however has a light citrus-punch to it, think subtle-yet-sweet sherbet-lemon mixed with a powdery berry.

As soon as the Magic Rabbit bath bomb hits the water an explosion of purple foam bursts out of it. Shortly after that, the hats red rim also starts to fizz away creating streaks of red bubbles. Magic Rabbit is quite a heavy bath bomb, this shows in the time it takes to dissolve. You’ll have plenty of time to sit back and watch the beautiful red and purple bath art it creates.

It doesn’t take long for the popping candy inside of the Magic Rabbit bath bomb to react with the water either, out of the fizzing and crackling eventually appears a little white rabbit! – Unfortunately I didn’t get a photo of the rabbit as I accidentally ripped it, I guess this leaves how it looks as a surprise for you though. 😉 The water it leaves behind is a deep dark purple and is silky smooth to touch.

The Magic Rabbits beautiful scent lasts throughout your bath and is still detectable on your skin a good few hours after getting out too. I wouldn’t say my skin was particularly  hydrated after a long soak in this bath but my skin did appear brighter. Overall I am really impressed with this bath bomb and I’m gutted that I didn’t get to grab a few more before the Lush website temporarily closed due to Covid-19. I have my fingers crossed that it makes a return some time soon. 🤞

Blazin’ Bad Zula Bath Bomb from Lush

blazin' bad zula bath bomb

The Blazin’ Bad Zula Bath Bomb is a brand new release from Lush’s 2020 Mother’s Day line. If you’re a Spice Girl fan like me, you may recognise this bath bombs name as it is named after Scary Spices alter ego in the Spice Girls 1996 top hit, Say You’ll Be There’s music video. My inner 6 year old squealed with excitement at the thought of a Spice Girl bath bomb, I just simply had to get a hold of one as quickly as possible.

In the 30 years I have lived on planet Earth I don’t think anything else has ever captivated my time and attention more than the Spice Girls did and Lush does now, mix them both together and I’m in heaven.

BlazinBadZula-1

Blazin’ Bad Zula’s scent is a fragrance we’ve had from Lush before, it shares its scent with the Chris The Camel bath bomb that was first released as a part of Lush’s 2019 Christmas line. Containing black pepper, cinnamon leaf, Brazilian orange and clove bud oils Blazin’ Bad Zula’s fragrance is sweet yet spicy. I personally really like its scent but have heard from a few others that it is quite the acquired taste.

Any Lush product with a hint of spice in especially cinnamon is bound to be a hit with me, as I suffer with chronic pain; The warm ingredients in certain Lush products are a god-send for me as they work wonders on aching muscles. My mission to help myself combat the chronic pain I suffer with is actually what first inspired me to get into Lush products, this makes Blazin’ Bad Zula even more exciting for me!

As you can see from the photos the Blazin’ Bad Zula bath bomb was designed with Scary Spices trademark leopard print in mind. What I wasn’t prepared for when I threw the Blazin’ Bad Zula bath bomb into the bath was the BATH ART.

phonto-2

The Blazin’ Bad Zula bath bomb is a very slow fizzer leaving you plenty of time to admire the bath art it leaves behind. As it bobs around in the water it shoots out a wide range of colours, yellows, purples, greens and blues; White foam too. My photos of the bath bomb in action do it no justice at all.

Once Blazin’ Bad Zula has completely dissolved the water left behind feels luxurious and silky smooth. It’s a very dark shade of purple with a generous helping of golden sparkle, as well as laying back in its warming and stimulating waters you can’t help but swish the water round, swirls of green and gold come to the surface before quickly disappearing again. It’s a true piece of art!

The sweet and spicy scent of the Blazin’ Bad Zula bath bomb lasts through out the whole bath. Once out of the bath its scent also remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day too. My nose always seems to detect a banana element to this bath bomb, it’s strange as, as far as I am aware it hasn’t got banana in but I’m not the only one to make the comparison.

If any Lush product has ever oozed girl power before it hasn’t been quite on par with the beautiful Blazin’ Bad Zula bath bomb. For lightly shimmered, glowing and beautifully hydrated skin give Blazin’ Bad Zula a go! I hope that Lush bring this bath bomb out again as I missed being able to stock up on it because of  the temporary closure due to social distancing. Fingers crossed! 🤞

Love Locket Amazeball Bath Bomb from Lush

Love Locket Amazeball

While Lush seem adamant on never releasing their much loved Yummy Mummy shower cream ever again, you can’t stay angry at them for very long when they are creating a shed load of products that share its scent. This years Valentine’s Day line features a golden-oldie bath bomb with a face lift AND a new fragrance!

The Love Locket Amazeball is (for want of a better word) the most amazeball, of all of the Amazeballs that Lush have created thus far. I actually did a poll on my Instagram and 75% of my followers agreed.

phonto

An Amazeball is a fancy bath bomb, each of them have a small lid. Love Lockets being the blue lock (see below photo). Inside the Amazeballs are either bubble bar dust or in Love Lockets case, tiny bath bomb hearts. The tiny bath bomb hearts are what makes me like Love Locket the most…

You’re meant to sprinkle an Amazeballs contents into the bath as it runs. Some create bubbles and change the colour of the baths water, Love Lockets contents however create beautiful bath art, that reminds me a little of the Luxury Lush Pud bath bomb.

8d049fca-08bf-4fbd-bac5-ec3664f9a170

The Love Locket Amazeball contains a mixture of tonka absolute, geranium and Brazilian orange oils. Its scent is a creamy-vanilla and strawberry blend, fans of the Roller bath bomb will be very pleased to hear that its scent is exactly the same.

How you use your Love Locket Amazeball is all down to personal choice. I have seen some people throwing it all in at once, I however sprinkled the heart-inserts in first, followed by putting the rest of it in.

phonto-1

Below is a photograph of the exact moment I sprinkled the bath bomb heart-inserts into the water. Seeing as they were very small, I didn’t expect them to hang about for very long. They had pretty much disappeared by the time I got the other part of the Love Locket Amazeball into the water.

After doing a little research online it appears that chucking the whole thing in together seems to create a better amount of bath art, I however enjoyed using it the “sprinkling way’ just as much!

138fc2f5-3920-499f-a255-d373ad8d0e5b

The pink and blue parts of the Love Locket bubbled away for a good few minutes, with it being a hollow bath bomb, I was surprised that it did fizzle away for so long. Its much desired Roller-scent shines through, throughout the whole bath too.

Its scent also remained on my skin once out of the bath, the fragrance was a lot more subtle on my skin but again I prefer it this way. It left my skin perfectly hydrated as well, there was no need for a top up of body lotion or moisturiser, another thing I love to get out of a bath bomb, not having to lotion up after a bath saves me so much time and energy!

04013f9b-cd61-4854-b9ec-373e8fc3e9a3

Overall I am very impressed with the Love Locket Amazeball, it is the first of Lush’s Amazeballs that I have bought more than one of. Lush is getting quite expensive these days so I can no longer go mad, I felt splashing out on an extra Love Locket was however worth it.

I’m always honest in my reviews and I can’t help but mention that I hope Lush give other Lush scents a go in future products. I love the scent family that Love Locket is in but it keeps showing up and I can see people growing bored of it due to, too much of a good thing!

Strawberries and Cream Bath Bomb from Lush

Strawberries and Cream Bath Bomb

Fans of the Roller bath bomb were thrilled when the Strawberries and Cream Bath Bomb was first released last year (2019). Strawberries and Cream started its Lush-life as a Harajuku store exclusive.

Before long it then became exclusively available at Lush’s flagship store in Liverpool too. It is now currently at the time of writing this review available online and I believe in most Lush stores across the United Kingdom.

Sharing its scent with the aforementioned Roller bath bomb (which is arguably the most sought-after Lush product to ever exist) it has proven very popular. The Strawberries and Cream bath bomb contains geranium, bergamot and olibanum oils alongside cocoa butter and strawberry powder.

Strawberries and Creams captivating scent is all down to the carefully selected ingredients mentioned above. the Strawberries and Cream bath bomb smells just like a bowl of fresh strawberries that have been drizzled in a very generous helping of vanilla cream.

Lush seem to have taken inspiration for the design of Strawberries and Cream from the likes of the Golden Pear soap and bath bomb. Not to be confused with a Lush bubbleroon either, 2 sides of this juicy-red-strawberry-shaped bath bomb are sandwiched together with what I believe to be cocoa butter.

I’m not quite sure why Lush decided to do this, I’m however not complaining as this simple addition adds a whole new level of hydration to a bath bomb!

The Strawberries and Cream bath bomb is approximately the same size as the palm of my hand (not including fingers). Once in the water it instantly begins to fizzle away, sending green and red bubbles across the waters surface. The green fizz doesn’t last very long but the red holds out until the very end.

If you’re looking for bath art then Strawberries and Cream might not be the best choice for you as it does dissolve very quickly. Regardless of its lack of bath art, Strawberries and cream makes your bath water incredibly soft, so much so that whenever I use it I never want to get out of the bath let alone pull the plug.

Once you are out of the bath its scent although much more subtle on your skin, lasts on you for the best part of the rest of the day.

Although the Strawberries and Cream bath bomb is no where near as amazing in the water in comparison to the Roller bath bomb,  I do really enjoy using it. Especially when I need to have a quick bath rather than a long soak.

Overall I really do like the Strawberries and Cream bath bomb. It hydrates and softens my skin so well that I do not need to moisturise after using it. Another great benefit if you’re in a rush.

I can totally see and smell exactly why Lush have decided at the time of writing this review to have it as a main line product, it’s berry, berry good! 🍓 😉 ❤️

Not So Secret Santa Bath Bomb from Lush

Sharing its size with the Butterball bath bomb the Not So Secret Santa Bath Bomb is one of the smaller sized bath bombs that appeared in this years (2019) Winter line.

I have never had much luck when participating in ‘Secret Santa’ gift swaps so always opt out of doing them if I am now invited to take part. (Don’t ask 😬) Even with the Secret Santa gift-swap-curse hanging over my head I couldn’t help but purchase this bath bomb.

The Not So Secret Santa bath bomb is named and designed from a play on words of the tradition of ‘Secret Santa’ gift-giving. As you can see, inside the Not So Secret Santa bath bomb is a Santa shaped paper-insert. He seems to be half hidden until you finally use the bath bomb.

Lush have been hiding paper notes in some of their products for years, one of the most recently released products being the Figaro Figaro bath bomb. The paper notes add some what of a novelty factor to bath bombs and it can make using them that little bit more exciting, especially for children!

The Not So Secret Santa bath bomb may look (apart from its paper insert) quite plain but one thing I have learnt through my excessive use of Lush products is that you really shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, or in bath bomb terms, you shouldn’t judge a bath bomb by its initial appearance! 😉

Containing essential oils from lemon myrtle, Sicilian lemon and litsea cubeba fruits/plants the Not So Secret Santa bath bomb might be Lush’s zestiest bath bomb yet. If I had to compare it to another bath bomb I’d say it’s fairly similar to the Dragon’s Egg bath bomb.

When you feel it is time to free Santa from the ‘snowball’ that he has got himself stuck in, place the Not So Secret Santa bath bomb into your bath water.

Upon hitting the water the Not So Secret Santa bath bombs scent begins to fill your bathroom almost immediately, just its scent alone leaves me feeling a lot brighter. Slowly but surely the Not So Secret Santa bath bomb dances around the waters surface, when suddenly a bust of red starts to trail out of it.

The trail of red soon becomes more apparent, pretty patterns begin to spurt out of the bath bomb until all that is coming out of it is red. It’s almost as if Santa has been accidentally put in a white wash! 😂 As the bath bomb dissolves, the Santa paper-insert reveals itself more and more, little by little.

For such a small bath bomb the Not So Secret Santa sure is powerful. Both bath art wise and by its scent. This bath bomb is lemony fresh through and through. Being a relatively fast fizzer it doesn’t take the freeing of Santa very long at all.

Unfortunately my Santa in the below photo appeared to have lost one hand while spinning around in my bath, I however found it stuck to my bum once I had got out of the bath, whoops! 🙊

With Santa finally being free, it’s the perfect time to lay back and relax in the Not So Secret Santa bath bomb’s waters… A soak in this bath water blasted away all of my winter blues. It’s the perfect mid-winter pick-me-up.

Once out of the bath the Not So Secret Santa bath bombs’ scent stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day. Its fragrance definitely added a little fuel to my ever declining Winter-energy-levels adding a spring to my step.

For such a small bath bomb I am surprised at how hydrated it left my skin, I didn’t just feel brighter mentally, my skin looked it too! Overall I am so, so impressed with the Not So Secret Santa bath bomb, it made for a nice change from the Butterbear bath bomb, I really do hope to see it making a return to the Winter line next year. 🤞

Santa’s Grotto Bath Bomb from Lush

santa's grotto bath bomb

The Santa’s Grotto Bath Bomb (aka the Santa’s Workshop Bath Bomb – Both Santa’s Workshop and Santa’s Grotto are the exact same product, the bath bomb just goes by a different name depending on where you are in the world) was definitely the one I was most interested in when Lush’s 2019 Winter-line-up first got leaked. Decorated with a handful of all of the most Christmassy colours; Green, gold and red, it sure is an eye catcher! As well as its good looks, it also happens to have popping candy inside of it making it the perfect Winter treat for ALL of your senses.

phonto

The Santa’s Grotto bath bomb’s scent isn’t how I had imagined it to be at all, containing ylang ylang, tagetes and everlasting flower absolute oils its ingredients list doesn’t exactly scream Christmas… Its scent isn’t the easiest to describe either but in short, I’d say it is a floral-sweet, fresh and incredibly powerful fragrance. So strong that in a room full of Lush, my nose can pick Santa’s Grotto up straight away.

Although many people find that the stronger scented Lush products are more of an acquired ‘taste’, Santa’s Grotto is one of the stronger scents that I do personally enjoy. Out of all of the Winter bath bombs from this year, Santa’s Grotto is by far the prettiest with its decoration of red and gold sea salt and popping candy.

phonto-2

As soon as the Santa’s Grotto bath bomb hits the water you are greeted with a fizzy explosion. As Santa’s grotto bobs around in the water, minty green and blue foam swirls out of it creating the most gorgeous of bath art. Once Santa’s Grotto was in the bath, based on its colours the bath art it created reminded me of that left behind by the Thundersnow bath bomb.


Santa’s Grotto is a very slow fizzer leaving plenty of time to admire the bath art it leaves behind. The popping candy in the Santa’s Grotto bath bomb doesn’t take long to get started once placed in the water either. I don’t think I have ever had such a ‘snappy, crackly and poppy’ bath bomb experience before. It really was like sitting in my own personal firework display!

Overall I am really impressed with the Santa’s Grotto bath bomb, the bath art was magnificent and it left my skin feeling luxurious and soft. Its scent on my skin lasted for the best part of the rest of the day too. Fortunately its scent on my skin was a lot more subtle than the bath bomb on its own, as much as I did enjoy its scent, I think being exposed to it while it’s super strong may have been a little overwhelming  for me. I will definitely be picking up a few of these before the Christmas line retires.

Fireball Bath Bomb from Lush

Fireball Bath Bomb

With December just around the corner the weather has (for everyone living my side of the world anyway; Shout out to my readers in New Zealand and Australia! 😉) turned bitterly cold. I am a Summer girl through and through and I think if it wasn’t for Lush’s amazing Winter line coming out every year, I would quite happily hibernate in a big fluffy dressing gown from now until late Spring.

Fireball is yet another brand new bath bomb from Lush this year (2019). There’s nothing quite like curling up in front of a warm fire but if like me you live without a working fireplace, the Fireball Bath Bomb really is the next best thing!

Fireball shares its scent with a much loved past-Christmas bath bomb called Cinders, I am lucky enough to have tried both and their scents really are identical, they both however perform so differently once in the water.

Containing mustard powder, cinnamon leaf and Brazilian orange oil Fireball is one of the warmest bath bombs I have come across, its scent is both warm and sweet. Lush products with cinnamon in are always welcome in my house. Cinnamon is a wonderful spice, I suffer with chronic pain and it is really good at soothing aching muscles, its warming effects stimulate blood circulation too.

Living up to its name, the Fireball bath bomb is shaped and designed to look just like a burning ball of fire. It isn’t like any other bath bomb that Lush have made before. Fireball is bright and bold, if its scent doesn’t warm you up then it’s yellow, orange and red colouring certainly will.

As soon as the Fireball bath bomb touches the water an eruption of orange, yellow and red bubbles fizzle out of it. Its warm and sweet scent fills your bathroom and once it’s been in the water for a while a smokey scent-layer seems to appear, reminding me even more of a real log fire.

After the Fireball bath bomb has bobbed around the surface of your bath water sending swirls of orange, red and yellow patterns across the water surface for a bit, the bath bomb suddenly begins to snap, crackle and pop… 😱

Lush have cleverly added popping candy to the ingredients of the Fireball bath bomb and what a show it puts on! the popping candy truly completes this bath bomb, it really is just like sitting in front of a real log fire, the popping and crackling every now again takes me right back to being a kid trying to warm myself up in front of the fire place. It’s such a brilliant idea and really does capture so much of an actual log fire.

The bath art that the Fireball bath bomb creates more-than-surpasses the non existent bath art created by the aforementioned Cinders bath bomb. Think of Fireball as Cinders’ much cooler little sister. It leaves the bath water a blood orange colour and also makes it silky smooth to touch. On a relaxation scale, the Fireball bath bomb is through the roof.

Once out of the bath the scent of the Fireball bath bomb remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day, it was subtle but present. I found that it left my skin feeling soft, hydrated and also brighter appearance wise.

I wish Lush would have rereleased the Cinders shower gel this year (shares a scent with Fireball) as pairing the both of them would be a legendary mix. The Fireball/Cinders fragrance screams Winter and I just can’t get enough of it. Even writing this review is tempting me into using the Fireball bath bomb again.

Overall I am really impressed with the Fireball bath bomb, it’s probably one of my favourite releases from this year. If you think the Magma bath bomb is a little too expensive then I’d definitely recommend giving the Fireball bath bomb a go instead, both are really warming, I will be sad to see Fireball go once the Winter line wraps up.

Pop Art Bath Bomb from Lush

Pop Art Bath Bomb

To look at you wouldn’t know that the Pop Art Bath Bomb is in fact a part of the Christmas 2019 line. The fact it’s not in-your-face Christmas is actually what first drew me to it. I imagine this would be the case for many others that aren’t quite ready to embrace the C word yet! 😉

Made in the same mould as the new Blackberry, The Comforter and the Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bath bombs I was very excited to give it a try.

Pop Art is inspired by popcorn, a snack I can never get enough of. With its shape and its bright yellow and white colours it certainly stands out from all the other bath bombs currently available.

When it comes down to Pop Art’s scent family the Lush Community are divided on which Lush scent it is closest to. What with the shut down of Lush-UK’s social media too, it’s made it more difficult to get an official answer.

When the news of Pop Art was first leaked we all thought that its scent would be the same as the mouthwateringly scrumptious Let the Good Times Roll Fresh Cleanser; Since however using it I am leaning more towards it sharing its scent with the Yog Nog bath bomb.

It’s difficult to say which products scent it is supposed to emulate because of Pop Arts basic and incredibly vague ingredients list. I do however feel safe in saying that Pop Art’s scent is a fine mix of the 2 – just think of it like it is the baby of both the aforementioned bath bombs. 😉


As soon as the Pop Art bath bomb hits the water you are greeted with a huge hiss, yellow and white foam fizzles out of it as it slowly bobs around the water surface. Once in the water it doesn’t take long for the hidden popping candy to kick in…

I don’t ever recall a bath bomb with quite as much popping candy before, Pop by name and pop by nature! Pop Art is a fabulously slow dissolver too, the popping candy cackled away for well over 5 minutes and hidden inside there is also burst of red colour too; Pop Art creates red, orange and yellow swirly bath art galore!

I am still undecided as to whether Pop Art is more Yog Nog scented than it is Let the Good Times Roll. I would however confidently say that if you do enjoy the Yog Nog bath bomb, you’d enjoy Pop Art. Think of it as a less oily version of the Yog Nog bath bomb, Pop Art doesn’t have the hidden bath melts in but does have plenty of popping candy!

Overall I am impressed with the Pop Art bath bomb, its caramel-sweet, pop corn fragrance although subtle stays on your skin long after getting out of the bath and it’s actually very hydrating on the skin too. I adore the popping candy aspect and was also blown away by the bath art it created.
