Sleepy Bath Bomb from Lush

The Sleepy Bath Bomb is a mini version of the giant-sized bath bomb, The Sleeping Giant. It shares its scent with The Sleeping Giant and also features the same super-exclusive, reusable glow-in-the-dark wax stars and moon. Although, the Sleepy bath bombs are ever so slightly smaller in comparison.

The masses will be pleased to hear that this bath bomb is yet another extension of the Sleepy scented range.

Lush’s Sleepy range is huge and because of its ‘magical sleeping properties’ happens to be one of Lush’s most sought after and best-selling scent families. You are most likely to recognise its scent from the bestselling products the Twilight bath bomb and the Sleepy body lotion.

The Sleepy bath bomb isn’t the easiest of bath bombs to get a hold of. At the time of posting this review it is exclusive to just 2 considerably expensive, Winter box sets – the 2021 Advent Calendar, and the Dreamland gift set.

It has also been available individually at Sleepy pop-up shops but again, these pop-up shops are only open for a few days and pop up in places at random.

If I was lucky enough to be near or at the right place at the right time, I’d have definitely purchased myself a few extra.

If the gift sets are a little out of your price range and you haven’t been lucky with a close-by Sleepy pop-up shop, a good alternative to the Sleepy bath bomb is the Sleepy Bear bath bomb. Sleepy Bear is also exclusive to this year’s Winter range, shares the same scent and is available to purchase individually everywhere.

What really sets the Sleepy bath bomb apart from the rest of the bath bombs is its 3 glow-in-the-dark reusable, wax stars, and moon shapes. We’ve had a glow in the dark soap before now (Ghost in the Dark) but nothing like these wax shapes that have been made to last indefinitely.

To activate the glow in the dark moon and stars simply have them sat in natural light so that they can charge, before using them.

The Sleepy bath bomb contains popping candy, lavender, brenzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and ylang ylang oils. Anything from the Sleepy range is perfect to use just before bed. The lavender and tonka absolute are the perfect ingredient to help you wind down after a long, hard day.

I don’t think I will ever get used to the products with popping candy in, even when I know they are featured in a product the first few snaps, crackle and pops always seem to take me by surprise, however, when using the Sleepy bath bomb I was really disappointed as it seemed to have hardly any popping candy in it at all. It popped 3 or 4 times and that was it.

Compared to this year’s Orange Pop bath bomb it was as if there wasn’t any popping candy in it at all.

The bath art that the Sleepy bath bomb creates is a mixture of purple, dark (almost grey) silver and gold swirls. It took a little longer than most bath bombs for the bath art to kick in but once it did, I was mesmerised. In ways, the bath art from the Sleepy bath bomb reminded me of the bath art the original Shoot for the Stars bath bomb used to create.

After using the Sleepy bath bomb its scent stays with you throughout the evening and even lasts on your skin for most of the next day. Not only do you benefit from its beautifully subtle scent hours and hours after using it, you also get soft, smooth and gloriously hydrated skin too.

I’m really sad that the Sleepy bath bomb is quite difficult to get a hold of as it’s a truly unique and spectacular bath bomb. Being honest, I would have liked to have seen a little more bath art from it but what it did create was pretty. It made a very welcome change to the aforementioned, same-old Twilight bath bomb.

I feel sorry for all of the hard-core Sleepy/Twilight fans that won’t get to give the Sleepy bath bomb a go because of how exclusive it is.

Hopefully Lush have a change of heart in-the-near-future and decide to make it easier to get a hold of. The reusable glow-in-the-dark wax stars really make this bath bomb, it’s such a unique idea and I will be keeping them for as long as they last!

Sleepy Bear Bath Bomb from Lush

The Sleepy Bear Bath Bomb was first released as a single item a few days ago and has proven to be a very popular part of Lush’s extensive 2021 Winter line.

Lush’s Sleepy range is huge and because of its ‘magical sleeping properties’ happens to be one of Lush’s most sought after scent families.

The masses will be pleased to hear that yes, the Sleepy Bear bath bomb does share its scent with the Sleepy body lotion and Twilight bath bomb.

The Sleepy Bear bath bomb is very close in size to last year’s smaller, Winter bath bombs Tick-Tock and (available again this years’) I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.

I really enjoyed the smaller bath bombs last year and am pleased to see some of them return. They were just as good as the larger ones and excellent value for money too.

If you’ve read any of my Lush product reviews before now, you’d know I always have a soft spot for the products that are made into characters (i.e. any Lush product that has eyes, or one eye for my beloved Monsters’ Ball bath bomb).

The Sleepy Bear bath bomb is super cute, designed to look just like a polar bear lying flat on its stomach, it looks like it’s ready to slide on down an icy slope and straight into your bathtub!

The Sleepy Bear bath bomb is white all over except for its bum/back. Its bum/back is covered with a sprinkling of purple-bath-oil-dipped lavender petals.

As well as on its own, the Sleepy Bear bath bomb is also available in the gift set pictured here; The Dreamland Gift Set.

As well as the lavender petals the Sleepy Bear bath bomb also contains organic cocoa butter, fine oatmeal, benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and lavender and ylang ylang oils.

The scent is perfect to help you wind down at the end of the day. After just one sniff you’ll understand why everything that Lush release in the Sleepy fragrance becomes a best seller.

As soon as the Sleepy Bear bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a ferocious hiss, white bubbles sizzle out of the bath bomb as it bobs around the water surface.

It doesn’t take long for the water to engulf the whole bath bomb and as soon as the water comes into contact with the lavender petals a small burst of purple explodes from it.

As this happens the lavender pieces start to break free from the bath bomb spreading across the water surface.

For such a small bath bomb the Sleepy Bears’ scent is strong, it’s just as powerful as the larger sized, aforementioned Twilight bath bomb.

Sleepy Bear is also a fairly quick fizzer too, giving you plenty of time to lay back and soak up the relaxing and super moisturising organic cocoa butter and oatmeal infused waters, surrounded by lavender petals you’ll feel like you’re floating on a lavender scented cloud.

Once out of the bath, my skin feels soft and just as hydrated as if I’d moisturised.

The Sleepy Bear leaves its scent on my skin too, I can still smell it on myself the next day.

I always drift off to sleep so much easier after I’ve used a Sleepy scented Lush product before bed. If you’re looking for a product to help you relax this Winter I’d recommend the Sleepy Bear bath bomb every time.

Overall, I really like the Sleepy Bear bath bomb. It’s a good price and plain enough to gift it to someone who may be on the fence about trying Lush.

It’s worth every penny and I will certainly be buying a few more before the Winter line is retired for another year.

You Shall Go to the Ball Bath Bomb from Lush

Lush have just released a Cinderella-inspired, fairytale-carriage-shaped bath bomb. The You Shall Go to the Ball Bath Bomb is a standout product from this year’s much anticipated Winter line.

Out of all of the new bath bombs released throughout 2021 it’s definitely the one I have been the most excited about trying.

It’s absolutely beautiful to look at, it is bright pink and decorated with golden lustre. Its intricate design makes it almost too pretty to use.

It has a carriage window, 2 wheels with spokes and leaves are etched all around it in a similar way to how the Guardian of the Forest bath bomb’s leaf design is. You Shall Go to the Ball’s leaf details are however on a much smaller scale.

Lush have well and truly mastered the art of 3D printer bath bomb moulds. It’s hard to believe that the bath bombs are all pressed by hand.

Another exciting thing about the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb is that it features a brand new Lush fragrance. Described on Lush’s website as strawberry scented, many customers assumed that it shares its scent with the Yummy Mummy shower cream and Roller bath bomb it however doesn’t.

The You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb’s scent is a very subtle strawberry fragrance. It’s so light that in amongst the other Winter stock at first I couldn’t really smell it.

Once you have it on its own its gentle fizzy-strawberry fragrance does however come through, I’m really happy that Lush have finally made an alternative strawberry scent family as in all honesty as much as I love the Yummy Mummy/Roller scent I was getting a little bored of it.

Its scent fits in with the fairytale theme of this bath bomb perfectly, the only other Lush-scent-family Lush could have possibly made it in is the So White/Once Upon a Time fragrance but as I said earlier, I am always eager to experience brand new scents and the light strawberry suits this princess-pink product perfectly.

The You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb contains a blend of Sicilian lemon and tonka absolute. This simple yet flawless mix is what gives the You Shall Go to the Ball baths bomb its gentle, fizzy strawberry fragrance.

As soon as the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb is introduced to your bath water you are welcomed with an explosion of pink. A thin layer of silky soft foam spreads across the water’s surface as the bath bomb slowly bubbles away.

The scent of the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb really comes alive in the water, it’s still a very gentle fragrance but the heat of the water intensifies the scent somewhat. At this point you can really smell the strawberry notes Lush mentioned on their website.

After 3 or 4 minutes a luminous yellow stream of bubbly foam also trickles out of the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb. Beautiful pink and yellow bath art begins to form around you.

The pictures in this review do not show the true brightness of the yellow, they also do not show how spectacular the bath art really was. I say this a lot in my reviews, but I can’t stress enough how much better the experience of  this bath bomb is in real life compared to just seeing the photos.

They say a picture speaks 1,000 words, if that is the case this bath bomb in person speaks 1,000,000!

Once the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with warm-orange-coloured bath water that has a sparkly gold finish. Seeing the golden shimmer dance around is just as relaxing as sitting back in the hot bath.

Once out of the bath I am left feeling refreshed and chilled out. Its scent although delicate, is still detectable on my skin for a couple of hours.

Overall, I really like the You Shall Go to the Ball bath bomb, it’s so unique to anything Lush have brought out before, its scent and its small yet perfectly detailed design make it a beautiful piece of art, I can see this bath bomb selling very well and wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone!

Ghostie Bath Bomb from Lush

The Ghostie Bath Bomb is a brand new, limited edition product first created for Lush’s 2021 Halloween line. With Lush not bringing my FAVOURITE bath bomb, the Monsters’ Ball back this Halloween, there is a lot riding on the Ghostie bath bombs shoulders. No pressure, Ghostie…

As its name suggests, Ghostie is a small but mighty, ghost-shaped bath bomb, it fits snuggly in my hand and is a lot cuter than it is spooky. I love that it has a pink mouth and eyes, it makes the mouth and eyes really pop against the rest of the white bath bomb.

Ghostie contains a generous helping of popping candy, lemongrass, Sicilian lemon and Persian lime oil. Its scent is super sour and has the power to awaken all of your senses and more. It doesn’t share a scent with either the Avobath or Melusine bath bombs but if you like either of them, chances are you’ll be a fan of Ghostie too.

When you are just holding the Ghostie bath bomb, its zesty-scent really is like a slap in the face especially when you’re tired or in need of a pick-me-up. I don’t think there has ever been a more powerful citrus scent from Lush which is a very bold statement considering how many citrus-based products they’ve released over the years.

Ghostie may look plain at first glance but if you look at its side you are given a clue as to how it will perform in the bath. Its design is very similar to the 3 rainbow bath bombs from Lush, the Snowman Dreaming, Follow the White Rabbit and Toby’s Magic Cow.

While I’d still tie the Ghostie bath bomb in with the 3 rainbow bath bombs claiming it to be the 4th of its kind, its insides are just blue and pinky-purple. Ghosties bath arts colouring (barring the white) is very similar to the Monsters’ Ball bath bombs.

As soon as the Ghostie bath bomb comes into contact with the bath water white foam fizzles out of it as well as a streak of blue and purple from one of its sides.

As pretty as the rainbow bath bombs are, I think making Ghostie just have blue and purple insides was a wise decision from Lush as I wouldn’t want people to start getting bored of the same type of bath bomb over and over.

For a relatively small bath bomb, Ghostie takes a long time to dissolve, it took 15 minutes in total which leaves you with plenty of time to enjoy the blue, white and pinky-purple bath art it creates.

The popping candy hidden in the Ghostie bath bomb becomes apparent within a minute or 2 of the bath bomb going into the water. Surprisingly it carries on crackling and popping away for a good 5 minutes after the bath bomb has fully dissolved.

The water left behind is a milky violet colour and incredibly soft on the skin. Laying back in Ghostie bath water leaves me feeling refreshed and puts a spring in my step.

The only negative I’ve found with the Ghostie bath bomb is that its scent doesn’t seem to stay on your skin once you’re out of the bath. I was really surprised by this as its scent from the box and throughout it being in the bath is incredibly strong.

Although the fragrance of Ghostie seems to disappear at the same time as the bath water goes down the drain, it still left my skin looking brighter and feeling silky smooth.
 

Am I mad that Lush replaced my favourite Halloween bath bomb with Ghostie? Yes. Although both Monsters’ Ball and Ghostie have similar bath art they are 2 very different bath bombs. With Monsters’ Ball being my favourite I will always be a little bitter about it not coming back. That’s not me saying that I dislike Ghostie though. I think it’s a fantastic addition to the Halloween line and can see it being enjoyed by many customers.

Toby’s Magic Cow Bath Bomb from Lush

Toby’s Magic Cow Bath Bomb has both a cute design and back story. Maya, a 10-year-old customer sent a letter to Lush asking if they could make a bath bomb for her brother Toby. She said that Toby loves both cows and rainbows. Maya’s request was taken very seriously, so seriously that Lush did combine a cow with a rainbow and out of it, Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb was born!

Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb is designed in a very similar way to the Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit bath bombs with their semi-hidden rainbow-insides. Both have proved very popular within the Lush community so I suspect Toby’s Magic Cow to sell equally as well.

Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb shares its scent with the Milky Bath bubble bar, it’s a very musky and gentle fragrance so a good bath bomb to go for if you like the Lush products with a more subtle and less in-your-face presence.

Ingredients wise, Toby’s Magic Cow contains popping candy for a bit of extra bath-time-magic, Brazilian orange and patchouli oils and plenty of skin softening coconut milk powder too.

Lush’s Milky Bath/Toby’s Magic Cow scent is admittedly a little strange as it doesn’t seem to match the ingredients list in the product. I’m so used to orange and patchouli being overly dominant ingredients in Lush products (such as the Karma Yantra bath bomb – both orange and patchouli oils feature in it too) that the gentleness of Toby’s Magic Cow’s scent really threw me.

The photo above is of Toby’s Magic Cow having a MOOch in my garden, I had way too much fun with Toby’s Magic Cow long before I even got around to putting it into my bath.

If you have Instagram I recommend that you have a look under the hashtags #TobysMagicCowBathBomb and #LushCommunity as it’s full of beautiful and creative photos of Toby’s Magic Cow – as well as much better cow puns than my own!

Toby’s Magic Cow is a good size, fitting snuggly into my hand. On first appearance it is pretty-much white all over although you can see the odd splash of colour around its edges. It’s a little bit bigger than the other rainbow-bath-bombs that I compared it to earlier, (Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit) – The rainbow aspect of Toby’s Magic Cow is also better hidden, that is until it gets wet…

As soon as the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of rainbow-colours. Pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens, and blues shoot out of it, leaving behind a rainbow-stream of bath-bomb-foam.

Unlike the Snowman Dreaming and Follow the White Rabbit bath bombs the colourful rainbow foam bursts out of the whole of the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb, framing it with its rainbow streaks.

Its soft peppery scent slowly fills the bathroom as you sit back, relax and enjoy the colourful show it puts on.

Overall I really enjoyed using the Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb, its scent isn’t one of my favourites from Lush but it is gentle enough to pair up with plenty of other Lush products if you want to make it a little more interesting.

It left my skin feeling really soft and hydrated. The best part about Toby’s Magic Cow bath bomb is definitely it’s colours and the bath art it creates.

My photos as always, do the bath bomb no justice at all. It’s a beautiful product and wherever Maya and Toby are, I hope they get to enjoy their colourful creation!

Orange Pop Bath Bomb from Lush

The Orange Pop Bath Bomb is set to be released at the end of September as a part of Lush’s 2021 Winter line. You may recognise its design from Winter lines of the past as Lush have used the same bath bomb mould (green leaf too) for Orange Pop as they did for their 2016 version of the So White bath bomb.

I decided to start my Winter 2021 bath bomb reviews with the Orange Pop bath bomb as it’s a product that doesn’t scream the C word. If you’ve read any of my past reviews on Winter products before, you’ll know how much I appreciate the Winter products that aren’t in-your-face Christmassy.

The Orange Pop bath bomb has a very simple ingredients list, Sicilian red mandarin, tangerine, Brazilian orange and bergamot oils with a generous, surprise helping of popping candy too.

You’ll recognise its scent from the bestselling and very much loved golden-oldie-Lush-product the Brightside bubble bar. I considered using both Brightside and Orange Pop together but the Orange Pop bath bomb is so powerful once in the water, I was super-glad that I didn’t.

If I am being honest (as I always am in my reviews) I really wasn’t expecting much from the Orange Pop bath bomb at all. Maybe because I had the Satsuma bath bomb from a past Christmas line in mind.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed using the Satsuma bath bomb but it just wasn’t very exciting compared to a lot of the other products on offer that year, it didn’t produce bath art and only really had a gentle citrus scent. I couldn’t have been more wrong in comparing the 2 together, Orange Pop is nothing at all like the Satsuma bath bomb, NOTHING AT ALL.

The Orange Pop’s scent isn’t too strong when you are handling it, that however soon changes when you put it in to your bath water. As soon as you drop the Orange Pop bath bomb into your bath water you are greeted with that super-satisfying hiss and a burst of super-sweet orange scent that takes over your bathroom.

Orange Pop isn’t hugely foamy; Small, light orange and green bubbles sizzle out of it as it slowly rolls around the water’s surface. It continues like this for the first 3 to 5 minutes before the green bubbles disappear completely, only leaving you with the light orange bubbles.

When I first used Orange Pop, it was at this point that I thought, oh, that’s it, show’s over. Then all of a sudden, a huge explosion of red erupted from the Orange Pop bath bomb.

When the Orange Pop bath bomb’s surprise red insides decide to make an appearance the popping candy also starts to snap, crackle and pop too! What I thought was going to be a relatively dull bath bomb just got way more exciting!

I took so many photos of the swirling red and orange bath art created by the Orange Pop bath bomb, none of them do this bath bomb justice. It’s a bath bomb you must experience for yourself.

If you miss the Christmas Sweater bath bomb like me, Orange Pop’s bath art is on par with it and features the same gorgeous colours too!

Orange Pop takes about 10 minutes to fully dissolve, once the popping candy has stopped, you are left with smooth and super-soft blood-orange bath water. Once out of the bath my skin felt so silky. It really seemed to perk the appearance of my skin up, it became much brighter and it was lovely and hydrated too.

Overall I really, really did enjoy using the Orange Pop bath bomb, its lovely scent remained on my skin for the rest of the day – (although thankfully, it is a lot more subtle on your skin than how it is in the bath!)

I am so excited for the Orange Pop bath bomb to hit the shops at the end of September, I really do believe that it’s going to sell very well and I will certainly be buying a few more to use too.

Temple of the Sky Bath Bomb from Lush

The Temple of the Sky Bath Bomb was first released back in 2020 right before the UK went into its first lockdown, currently it is still available to purchase but sadly it won’t be for much longer as it is being discontinued to make way for new bath bombs. With it going so soon, I have left doing this review a little late but better late than never!

Back when the Temple of the Sky bath bomb first came out it was released alongside several other bath bombs, one of those being the Tengri bath bomb. At the time of writing this review the Temple of the Sky bath bomb is the only bath bomb out of the small selection that came out then, that is still available to purchase.

I am a little shocked that Lush have however recently decided to discontinue it soon. I thought it had been selling well, it’s still plastered all over Instagram within the Lush community so it really was a surprise to hear of its demise…

I think what first makes the Temple of the Sky bath bomb so popular is its intricate attention to detail, it’s a round shape with a golden border, inside the golden border is a golden Japanese style temple surrounded by brilliant blue sky. It’s a real piece of art, almost too beautiful to put it into water just to let go down the plug hole.

The Temple of the Sky bath bombs ingredients are all things zingy; Containing both Sicilian lemon and sweet wild orange oils, its yet another zesty-sweet, citrus scented bath bomb that is perfect for awakening all of your senses!

As soon as the Temple of the Sky bath bomb touches the water and array of yellow and turquoise foam sizzles out of it. A thin layer of silky soft foam slowly spreads across the waters surface as it slowly bubbles away. The colourings of the Temple of the Sky bath bomb when it first goes in to action really reminds me of one of my all-time favourite bath bombs, Golden Wonder.

Temple of the Sky is a really slow fizzer giving you plenty of time to admire the bath art it creates. I say this in almost every bath bomb review I write but my photos do not do this bath bomb justice, it’s so, so beautiful in the water. The colours are just like a brilliantly sunny day, blue skies and golden sun beams. My bathroom has never felt brighter.

The water left behind is a beautiful shade of turquoise-green and is full of shimmery gold lustre, I can happily sit in the bath swishing the water back and forth watching the shimmer dance around right up until the water gets too cold for me to be in the tub anymore. If you love bath art the Temple of the Sky bath bomb is a must try product for you.

I adore the Temple of the Sky bath bomb and am extremely sad to see it go into retirement. The bath art it creates, its scent and how soft it makes your skin feel afterwards is amazing, it’s a perfect product. I just hope the new bath bombs that Lush bring out to fill the gap that the Temple of the Sky bath bomb is leaving live up to Temple of the Sky’s standards, it’ll be a hard bath bomb to beat!

The Sleeping Giant Bath Bomb from Lush

There have been several giant-sized bath bombs released by Lush over the last few years but none of them have been quite like the Sleeping Giant Bath Bomb. What sets this giant bath bomb apart from all of the rest is the inclusion of the reusable glow in the dark wax stars and moon.

The Sleeping Giant shares its scent with the Sleepy/Twilight range, it’s a massively bestselling Lush-scent, you are most likely to recognise it from the Twilight bath bomb and Sleepy body lotion. There are however many, many more products with the same scent currently available to try as well.

Inside the hollow Sleeping Giant bath bomb are lots of dry flowers. There’s sprigs of dry lavender, dry rose petals, dried pink delphinium petals, dried blue mallow flowers and my favourite, chamomile flowers too.

Being honest as always I don’t ordinarily go for the bath bombs with loose flowers in just because of the clean up afterwards, sometimes they are however worth using as a special treat. I only used all of my Sleeping Giant bath bomb together, petals-and-all as I wanted to get some good photos and also wanted to see it in all of its glory so that I could give you guys a fair review on it. 😊

Pushing the dry flowers to one side, the bath bomb part of the, The Sleeping Giant contains lavender, brenzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and ylang ylang oils. Anything including the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb from the Sleepy range is perfect to use just before bed. The lavender and tonka absolute are the perfect ingredient to help you wind down after a long, hard day.

After using the Sleeping Giant bath bomb its scent stays with you throughout the evening and even lasts on your skin for most of the next day. Not only do you benefit from its beautifully subtle scent hours and hours after using it, you also get soft, smooth and gloriously hydrated skin too.

The glow in the dark reusable wax stars and moon shapes are a very welcome extra from this bath bomb. We’ve had a glow in the dark soap (the Ghost in the Dark soap) before now but nothing like this that is completely reusable! To activate the glow in the dark moon and stars simply have them sat in natural light so that they can charge, before using them.

The photo below is of one of them broken away from the bath bomb, I sadly couldn’t get a photo of them that showed just how bright they do glow. Like many other Lush products the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb is one of those products you have to experience for yourself to really get a taste of how it is to use. Photos do not do it justice at all.

Overall I did really enjoy using the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb. As it is a giant bath bomb it is a little expensive but I am glad I tried it once as a treat. Would I purchase it again? No but only because I can now add the glow in the dark moon and stars to my bath with any Lush product I want now. I love that they are reusable!

The only issue I really had with the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb is the clear up afterwards. Those dry petals get everywhere! Luckily I have a gadget that goes over the plug so none get stuck, blocking my bathroom pipes up. Scooping them up is easy enough at the end but not something I’d want to be doing after every bath.

I am always first to roll my eyes when people moan that bath bombs are messy so when I say the clear up was a little frustrating it really was. I am however glad I tried this bath bomb as a treat to myself. If I did have the opportunity to use it again I’d probably either take all of the dried petals out or only allow a few into the water.

Diamond Dust Bath Bomb from Lush

Set to be officially released as a mainline product in a few weeks, the Diamond Dust Bath Bomb first became available in Lush’s, May 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box. Said to be the most sparkly bath bomb to ever be released, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one.

The first thing you notice about the Diamond Dust bath bomb is its unique shape, if you’re not at all familiar with UK TV gameshows, (ones that were on in the early 90’s in particular) this next reference won’t mean anything to you but for me, the bath bomb really reminds me of the old TV gameshow The Crystal Maze.

(pic 3 TBA)

Diamond Dust’s creamy pink and orange colouring as well as its unique shape has well and truly caught the attention of the Lush community. Containing neroli, ylang ylang, black pepper, sandalwood and vetivert oils its scent is both uplifting and relaxing.

Describing its scent is quite difficult because of its long list of ingredients but I will give it my best shot… You’d think that with so many ingredients the Diamond Dust bath bomb would have a powerful overbearing scent, its scent is however subtle and not at all in your face.

Even though the Diamond Dust bath bombs scent is subtle there are several layers to its fragrance, my nose first picks up on the neroli, then there is a warm smoky layer to it that rounds the neroli’s bitterness off. There’s also a floral element to it from the ylang ylang too. It’s incredibly moreish, a long soak in its waters leaves me refreshed and lulls me into a happier state of mind.

As soon as the Diamond Dust bath bomb hits the water it begins to fizzle away, light pastel pinks, oranges, yellows and creamy white foam sizzles out of the bath bomb as it charges around like a speed boat, dancing on the waters surface.

It’s a fairly slow fizzer and although it’s not big for bath art, there are several beautiful bath art shots of it on Instagram if you search via the hashtag #DiamondDustBathBomb. My photos in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all so please do check the hashtag out on Instagram.

Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with milky-peach-water that is jam packed with gorgeous shimmer. Lush weren’t lying when they said that this bath bomb was a sparkler! I wish I could have gotten a photo of the shimmer for this review but it’s so hard to capture on camera. It’s a bath bomb you have to experience for yourself to see its true potential and beauty.

My skin felt super-soft once I was out of the bath and its gentle scent remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day too.

I am really looking forward to the Diamond Dust bath bomb being released as a mainline product in September 2021. I love the monthly Kitchen Subscription boxes (where we first got access to this bath bomb) but when you get an amazing bath bomb like Diamond Dust getting just the one to try simply isn’t enough! I will most certainly be ordering a couple more of these as soon as they become available.

Karma Yantra Bath Bomb from Lush

The Karma Yantra Bath Bomb started off it’s Lush life as a Lush Spa exclusive, it wasn’t available to purchase and was exclusively used only within the Karma spa treatment. I haven’t been lucky enough to have the Karma treatment yet BUT I have my fingers crossed that I will be able to experience it one day in the not so distant future. 🤞

Back in 2019 Lush released a shed-load of limited edition bath bombs in celebration of 30 years since one of the brains-behind-Lush, invented the bath bomb.

Luckily one of the bath bombs out of the long list of limited edition releases happened to be the Karma Yantra bath bomb; Therefore for a small amount of time, people could buy it and try it outside of the spa treatment!

Karma Yantra’s scent is from the Karma scent family. Karma is a hugely popular fragrance that features in copious amounts of different Lush products, in several different formats.

The Karma Yantra bath bomb has a long list of ingredients, on paper you’d think all of them would never work together but in reality – all of them blended together really work. Each ingredient compliments one another perfectly.

The most prominent ingredients that come through when I sniff the Karma Yantra bath bomb are the patchouli, orange and pine oils. The scent is very refreshing – which I think is down to the orange and pine oils in it. The patchouli also adds a peppery almost spicy layer to its fragrance.

The Karma Yantra bath bomb quite simply oozes happiness and good vibes.

Karma Yantra is a flat, rather large bath bomb. Its size and thickness is very similar to the Skydancer Far From The Madding Guns and Granny Takes A Dip bath bombs. It is a fantastically bold orange colour with raised yellow indents; the yellow indents show a sun-frame-like circle with an equilateral triangle inside; Inside that triangle is another equilateral triangle and so on.

Once placed in to the bath water you are greeted with a hiss of fizzing orange bubbles. With the bath bomb being flat and therefore skinnier than the normal round bath bombs, it doesn’t take very Long to dissolve. It’s not a bath-arty type of bath bomb either, it’s beautifully designed but I think the highlight and main selling point for this bath bomb is its breath-of-fresh-air, welcoming scent.

Overall I really enjoyed using the Karma Yantra bath bomb, my skin felt fabulous after use and the Karma scent remained on my skin well into the next day too.

I hope that I can experience the Karma spa treatment one day. I have my fingers crossed, it’s very high up on my bucket list! 🤞
