Light the Night Bath Bomb from Lush

The Light the Night Bath Bomb is one of Lush’s very first, limited edition Eid inspired products. It first became available earlier this year (2022) and was exclusively available to purchase in the weeks leading up to Eid 2022.

As you can see from the photos that I have included in this review, the Light the Night bath bomb is shaped just like a shimmery gold and purple lantern. Weighing in at approximately 110g, the Light the Night bath bomb is a little bit bigger than the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb, but not by much!

The Light the Night bath bomb contains jasmine and vanilla absolutes, alongside those are a generous helping of rose syrup, labdanum resinoid and pomegranate molasses too.

When I first see that the Light the Night bath bomb had jasmine in it, I was worried I wouldn’t like its fragrance. Out of all of the fresh ingredients that Lush use in their products I feel as if the ‘Marmite’ ingredient is jasmine.

Customers seem to either love or hate it. I am not a huge fan of the jasmine fragrance but can stomach it in most Lush products.

Luckily, I actually didn’t mind the scent of the Light the Night bath bomb, the 2 more dominant fragrances I get from it are the jasmine and vanilla, there seems to be just the right amount of vanilla to round off the heaviness of the jasmine I tend to not favour. Light the Nights scent is a fairly light, vanilla-rich fragrance.

Considering the smaller size of the Light the Night bath bomb I have to admit that I think it’s a little overpriced. I rarely mention price in my Lush reviews as they are subject to change so often but (at the time of writing this review) the Light the Night bath bomb is priced at £6 each. Over the last few years, I have been really worried that Lush are beginning to price themselves out and I feel that with Light the Night, they are doing just that.

Quality wise Lush products are the best out there, all of the ingredients that they use are ethically sourced and of the best quality too, this has always reflected in the products prices but with bath bombs being single use products I find myself feeling a little robbed if I am charged anything over £4.50 per item.

As soon as the Light the Night bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of yellow, green and blue foam. It doesn’t take long for the bath bomb to start spinning around the water’s surface, creating peacock-like coloured bath art. 

My Light the Night bath bomb took approximately 7 minutes to dissolve; it creates the most incredibly soft bath-water and I found that it left my skin feeling super hydrated and soft too. Its scent didn’t really last on my skin once I got out of the bath but it made a huge difference on how my skin felt.

There’s nothing better than silky soft feeling skin after a relaxing bath.

Overall, I enjoyed the Light the Night bath bomb a lot more than I expected, as I said earlier the jasmine ingredient seems to be either a clear hit or miss with customers and for this bath bomb it was very much a hit for me. I am really looking forward to seeing what other holidays Lush begin to honour with future product lines after this years small yet amazing Eid line!

The Imperial Egg Bath Bomb from Lush

I was really enjoying Lush’s 2022 Easter line; You can see this from all of the previous-to-this-posts, written reviews. It however wasn’t until I got April’s Lush Kitchen Subscription box that I realised how much better the Easter line could have been…

The Imperial Egg Bath Bomb was one of 5 products available in this month’s Kitchen box and I promise you that I am not exaggerating when I say that April 2022’s box was the best Lush Kitchen box to date.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb is exactly the same shape and size as this years’ The Golden Egg bath bomb. It’s a small one weighing in at only 90g but if Lush products have taught me anything over the years, it is that size doesn’t indicate how good or bad a product is going to be.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb is a shimmery, light-blue and contains eucalyptus, lemongrass, and peppermint oils. Its scent is incredibly refreshing. It has a clean, sharp fragrance that could wake up the weariest of souls. The peppermint and eucalyptus within it are the more dominant ingredient, scent wise.

As soon as the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb meets the water little bubbles begin to sizzle out of it. After just over a minute of light, gentle bubbles, green foam suddenly starts to spill out of the bath bomb.

The blue part of this bath bomb appears more white than blue, once it has been in the water for a while. Slowly but surely, the green foam spilling out of the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb becomes fiercer. Spouting from 2 points of the bath bomb instead of just the one. As the bath bomb spins in the water, beautiful green and white bath art begins to form on the water surface.

Looking back at the photographs and video footage that I captured of this bath bomb in action, I can see that it only took 7 minutes to fully dissolve. As you can see from the photos, I have included in this review it didn’t disappoint when it came down to pretty colouring and bath art.

Earlier, I mentioned that the 2022, Lush Easter line could have been so much better had they included some of the products exclusive to April’s Lush Kitchen box in the line. I think the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb would have been a best seller had they included it. I hope that Lush see sense and put it in next year’s Easter line as I’d love to use it again.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb’s scent make it a good product to go for if you have the sniffles, the eucalyptus in it makes it especially good for helping soothe sinus issues. For centuries, eucalyptus oils have been used to help manage with the symptoms of the common cold.

Even without a cold, the eucalyptus and peppermint oils in the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb make it a super awakening bath bomb. It is a great bath bomb to use if you’re in need of just an energy boost.

Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright green water, all of the goodness from the bath bomb’s ingredients makes the water incredibly soft and laying in its waters leaves your skin feeling silky smooth to touch and also leaves your skin appearing much brighter.

Overall, I am really, really impressed with the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb. I don’t mean to repeat myself, but I really do hope that Lush decide to release it in their Easter 2023 line as I’d love to use it again, and I feel others who aren’t subscribed to the Lush Kitchen boxes deserve a chance to use it too.

NEW SHAPE Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb from Lush

I’ve been asked several times now if the new shaped Ickle Baby Bot Bath Bomb is any different from the older one (found here).

I wasn’t going to review it as the changes really are purely decorative but the more, I get asked the more I think, I’ll just do a post on it!

The new shaped Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb is the exact same ingredients, scent, and everything else as the previous one, the only difference is that Ickle Baby Bot now has a big belly, something I am guilty of getting myself over the years… 😉

Ickle Baby Bot’s new look is just as adorable as before and was redesigned still with children still in mind. It contains lavender, chamomile and sandalwood oil which is the perfect recipe to prepare you or your little ones for a great night’s sleep.

The Ickle Baby Bot has a very gentle formula and because of this was one of the first Lush products that I ever tried. I was told that it was suitable for babies from 6 months plus. Feeling safe with this knowledge, I figured that Ickle Baby Bot was a good first product choice for myself when I first got into Lush.

Ickle Baby Bot is a miniature sized, robot shaped, pastel-blue coloured bath bomb. As I said above it was designed with kids in mind and is desirable to both boys and girls.

I do not dislike the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb, but I do prefer the alternative lavender-based bath bombs that are a bit more theatrical in the bathtub. I popped my very first Ickle Baby Bot into my bath then went straight to the toilet. Before I came back to it, it had already fizzled away.

As it is a smaller sized bath bomb, I wasn’t too surprised by this. Pushing bath time theatrics aside, I love how quick, simple, and effective the Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb is. Sometimes you just want to get on with your bath, making Ickle Baby Bot a popular choice for people pushed for time.

It really all depends on what you want out of the bath bomb you’re about to use. If a quick fix is what you’re after Ickle Baby Bot is a good choice.

An Ickle Baby Bot bath is perfect for the night-time. It can be made even better if paired up with the Sleepy shower gel and/or the Twilight bath bomb.

I love lavender and how versatile it is as an herb. It makes Ickle Baby Bot the perfect bath time buddy for winding down and clearing your head of any stress.

Being one of the cheapest bath bombs currently on offer, Ickle Baby Bot though very small remains a very popular bath bomb.

Deep Sleep Bath Bomb from Lush

The Deep Sleep Bath Bomb was one of the first products I grabbed on my very first visit to Lush Liverpool on their opening day back in 2019. It is safe to assume that the bath bomb has been well received by Lush customers as several years after the Liverpool stores grand opening, the Deep Sleep bath bomb is still available as an all year round product in both stores and online.

As you can see from the photograph above, the Deep Sleep bath bomb isn’t your average looking Lush bath bomb as it is wrapped in a fully compostable muslin cloth.

With the Deep Sleep bath bomb being wrapped it means you can enjoy the dry lavender and German chamomile flowers that are hidden within it without the fear of clogging up your pipes with the bits of flowers that could end up going down your plug hole when the bath drains. It is also a huge bonus for those customers that dislike any ‘bits’ floating around in the bath with them. Put simply, you get all of the benefits from the ingredients without the mess!

Alongside the above-mentioned flowers, the Deep Sleep bath bomb also contains lavender absolute and the following essential oils, lavender, chamomile and neroli. Scent-wise my nose mostly picks up on all of the lavender in the Deep Sleep bath bomb, it’s a very sweet yet herbal scent, it actually reminds me of my childhood home. We had lavender growing right outside of our front door, I remember my nan rubbing her hands on bits of the lavender she had picked every time she went past it.

As soon as the Deep Sleep bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a gentle hiss, slowly but surely, purple bubbles fizz out of the bath bomb turning the bath water a very inviting, Cadbury purple colour.

If you thought the Twilight bath bomb was great to use before bed, then you’ll be blown away with Deep Sleep. When used just before bed, the lavender and chamomile blend really helps lull you into a truly relaxed state of mind. As soon as you lay back into a Deep Sleep bath you can feel yourself instantly relax, all tension that has built up in your body that day simply melts away.

The Deep Sleep bath bomb takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes to fully dissolve, only the muslin cloth full of the dry lavender and German chamomile flowers remains, floating around your bath adding not just to the baths scent but also to how soft the bath water is.

The water is a beautiful shade of purple and silky smooth to touch, it leaves my skin feeling soothed and refreshed. The scent of Deep Sleep is still detectable on my skin the morning after I have used it too. This allows Deep Sleep’s calming effects to work on me right through until the next day.

If you’re looking for bath art, Deep Sleep wouldn’t be a good choice BUT if you are just chasing a good night’s sleep, this bath bomb may just be the key ingredient you’ve been looking for. Overall, I am super impressed with the Deep Sleep bath bomb, my excuse for taking so long to finally review it on here is based on its price. If it wasn’t so expensive, I’d be using it a lot more often!

Disco Duck Bath Bomb from Lush

The Disco Duck Bath Bomb was first released by Lush in their 2022, Easter line. It’s yellow all over with a small dark green beak. Designed to look like it is put together in little square pieces (just like a reflective disco ball) it is quite the eye catcher!

Out of this years’ (2022) Easter line, I think it is one of the more interesting products to look at and I looked forward to trying it in the bath.


The Disco Duck bath bomb is a smaller sized bath bomb at approximately 110g each. For comparison purposes the Butterball bath bomb is 95g and an Intergalactic bath bomb is 200g. 

On Lush’s website the Disco Duck bath bomb is described as being a ‘quacking good pick-me-up’. It contains; juniper berry, Persian lime and rosemary oils alongside menthol crystals, guarana powder and a sprinkle of popping candy too.

The Disco Duck bath bomb’s scent is quite an acquired taste. I first experienced its scent in the Party On shower jelly back when the Lush Kitchen had a weekly menu. Being honest as always, it wasn’t a product I liked. In fact, I disliked it so much that I didn’t bother to review it on here and quickly gave the shower jelly away.

You may wonder why I even bothered to try the bath bomb after I didn’t enjoy the shower jelly equivalent. I however always strive to try everything from the limited-edition, seasonal lines at least once. Quite often I find that different product formats carry the same scents very differently too.

It was a bit of a gamble ordering a Disco Duck online, but it was a gamble that paid off, as in the end I really did enjoy using it!

Upon cold sniff, the Disco Duck’s scent is zesty with a heavy menthol and aniseed-rich edge. I feel as if the scent disappeared completely as the bath bomb dissolved which in most cases would I annoy me, however, with me not being a huge fan of its scent, it actually worked in this products favour.

As soon as the Disco Duck bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a gentle hiss, as a thin layer of green and yellow foam fizzles out of it.

It feels like Lush haven’t released a bath bomb that creates bath art like Disco Duck does in forever. Bath art wise, the Disco Duck bath bomb didn’t disappoint. Yellow and green swirls are created as Disco Duck charges around the bathtub like a mini speed boat.

The water left behind is bright green, so bright that it reminds me of a high-vis safety jacket. The water turns silky to-the-touch too. My dry skin loved soaking in all of the bath bombs’ goodness and the guarana powder in it really shines through, Lush weren’t lying when they said the Disco Duck bath bomb was a pick-me-up, it left my skin positively glowing!

I do think the bath bomb could have had a little more popping candy in it, I actually had to double check the ingredients after I had used it as it didn’t snap, crackle and pop very much at all, – so little that I thought I had imagined it…

… Overall, I did very much enjoy using Disco Duck. It’s saving grace for me was the fact its scent completely disappeared during use. I know this may however be a negative for most customers, as it would be for me if it was made in a Lush-scent-family that I really liked.

Flamingo Egg Bath Bomb from Lush

The Flamingo Egg Bath Bomb was first released by Lush as a part of 2021’s Easter line, this year it has made, what seems to be for most people, a much-welcomed return.

One side of this popular egg-shaped bath bomb is pink, and the other is blue; Both sides have a cracked-shell-effect look and the pink side has a little bit of extra added detail, it’s decorated with a sprinkling of sparkly sea salt.

It is approximately 195g so just a tiny bit smaller than the average sized all-year-round bath bombs; Twilight and Intergalactic.

The Flamingo Egg bath bomb contains both lemon and vetivert oils, as well as labdanum resinoid and coarse sea salt. Its scent is quite tame for Lush and is described on Lush’s website as ‘cotton-candy scented’.

As soon as the Flamingo Egg bath bomb meets the water there is an explosion of blue and pink foam. Colour and bath art wise, the Flamingo Egg is just like the, The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb.

I said in that review that I was growing tired of the pink and blue bath bombs; This is also a huge reason as to why I am only reviewing this bath bomb now instead of when it was first released last year.

The Flamingo Egg bath bomb takes approximately 6 to 7 minutes to dissolve. Its scent also becomes a bit more prominent once the bath bomb is added to the hot bath water.

It’s not a scent I’d usually go for if I was shopping in store, BUT I always strive to try everything from the limited-edition and seasonal lines at least once, as quite often I am left impressed by products I’d never normally consider trying.

The water left behind by the Flamingo Egg bath bomb is silky soft and a dark shade of purple, it is not dissimilar to the waters left behind by the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb. The bath bomb softens the water a lot, leaving my skin with a gentle tingling feeling as I lay back in its waters.

Overall, I don’t dislike the Flamingo Egg bath bomb I just think I’m bored of the same old bath art, over and over. There are so many other colour combinations Lush could use but lately Lush just seem to be going for the same colour schemes with every bath bomb.

I admit that I was shocked to see it make a return alongside the Follow the White Rabbit bath bomb this year. I much preferred the Eggy Wegg bath bomb and was sure that was the bath bomb that would be returning with the Follow the White Rabbit bath bomb.

The Elephant in the Tea Room Bath Bomb from Lush

The Elephant in the Tea Room Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition, 2022 Mother’s Day product. This year’s Mother’s Day line is packed full of some of the cutest products Lush have ever created, Lush have gone with an animal theme, and I can’t get enough of it!

The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb has been created to look like an elephant shaped tea pot. One side of it is pink the other is blue.

It is quite a big bath bomb at 220g (for size comparison purposes, the average sized bath bomb such as the Twilight bath bomb, is only 200g.) With half of it being my favourite colour pink, it was the first of the Mother’s Day products to catch my attention.

Lush have released previous, tea-orientated bath bombs before, the most recent being the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb, this product also happened to be shaped like a tea pot.

The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb boasts a brand new Lush scent.

It is described on the Lush website as a way to ‘bring afternoon tea to your bath time’. The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb contains a long list of ingredients; Bergamot and lemon myrtle oils, benzoin resinoid, soybean flour, powdered gunpowder tea and organic sencha tea powder.

Its scent is difficult to describe, aspects of it remind me of the Melusine bath bomb but it has a strong malt-biscuity-undertone to it too, this rounds off the sharpness of the lemon myrtle and bergamot oil in it.

I can’t really smell the tea aspect of it but as someone who doesn’t consume any caffeine and therefore isn’t familiar with it, I personally wouldn’t be able to distinguish the tea in it anyway.

As soon as the, The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb is introduced to your bath water you are welcomed with an explosion of blue and 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, The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb really comes alive in the water, the heat of the water intensifies the scent somewhat. The sencha tea, bergamot and soya milk make for a super hydrating and immersive bath time experience.

I can only guess that this is how a tea bag feels when it is being brewed… 😆

Colour wise, I must admit I’m getting a little bored of all the pink and blue bath bombs that Lush keep releasing. As for the bath art that the, The Elephant in the Tea Room creates, it is very similar to that created by the Monsters’ Ball bath bomb, however it’s not nearly as pretty in the water.

It’s a relatively slow fizzer taking approximately 10 minutes to fully dissolve. Once the, The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb has fully dissolved you’re left with purple, cool-toned water. The bath bomb softens the water a lot and I find laying back in its waters for just a few minutes really soothes and hydrates my skin.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the, The Elephant in the Tea Room bath bomb. As fun as it is to be reintroduced to old, much-loved Lush scents through both old and new products, I am always welcome to trying new Lush scents.

I’m very interested in seeing whether Lush bring this scent out in other product formats in the future, I could see it working quite well in a shower gel format or even a body lotion.

Mimosa Shower Gel from Lush


The Mimosa Shower Gel is a brand-new, limited-edition, Mother’s Day product that first became available in the UK in the middle of February 2022. I have well and truly grown bored of Lush’s small collection of all-year-round shower gels so was very excited to get a brand new one in the shower with me.

Mimosa shower gel is a beautiful shade of golden orange, when the sunlight hits it, it really reminds me of a fresh bottle of Calacas shower gel, it glows in exactly the same way. Lush have done the impossible with this shower gel, it is quite literally the sun in shower gel form.

It has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency and since its release, has been popular throughout the Lush Community. There is something about it that is so incredibly moreish.

The Mimosa shower gel contains a long list of ingredients; elderflower infusion, fresh orange juice, wine lees oil, mimosa absolute, sweet wild orange oil, and carnation absolute to name just a few.

Give or take a few ingredients such as the mimosa absolute, the Mimosa shower gel shares a lot of the same ingredients as the Celebrate and Bubbly shower gels. I was really surprised when I first sniffed the Mimosa shower gel straight from the bottle, I was expecting it to smell a little like the shower gels I mentioned earlier but not quite as much as it did.

At first, I really was convinced that the Mimosa shower gel was just yet another version of a Celebrate scented shower gel. I thought Lush had cheated with their claim that Mimosa was a new scent entirely. Some products scents, particularly shower gels do however change in use so although I was sceptical of it being a new Lush scent, I kept an open mind.

As I said earlier, the Mimosa shower gels consistency is quite thick but not so thick it’s hard to get out of the bottle. It lathers up easily and a small amount goes a very long way too. Once the hot water and steam of the shower meets the shower gel and you begin to lather it up, its scent becomes less like the Celebrate shower gel and more of its own.

It is still very similar to the Celebrate shower gel scent wise BUT it has a floral twist that becomes less subtle and more dominant during use. As the mimosa note of the shower gels fragrance becomes more apparent the more, it reminds me of warmer weather and the sunshine. It literally washes away your Winter blues, it’s the perfect pre Spring pick-me-up.

My favourite thing about the Mimosa shower gel is however how it leaves my skin looking and feeling. After I’ve used it, the scent doesn’t last on my skin for very long (if at all) BUT it does leave my skin feeling incredibly soft. It’s also very hydrating; it seems to lock in moisture just as well as a body lotion does.- Overall, I really do like this shower gel, it’s perfect for this time of year. It’s quite literally a bottle of shower-gel-sunshine!

Jasmine Bath Bomb from Lush

The Jasmine Bath Bomb is the first product from Lush’s 2022 Mother’s Day range that I’ll be reviewing for you. If you are familiar with last year’s Mother’s Day line, you’ll be awash with the feeling of déjà vu when you see the Jasmine bath bomb as it looks identical to 2021’s Jasmine Cream bubble bar.

Although it looks just like the old bubble bar, it doesn’t share the same scent. The Jasmine bath bomb actually shares its scent with another much-loved, older product, the Northern Lights bath bomb. The Northern Lights bath bomb is one of my all-time favourites, so I was very excited to try a new bath bomb with the same scent.

The Jasmine bath bomb is around the same size at the Peachy bath bomb, just the right size to fit snuggly in to your hand.

It contains jasmine absolute and ylang ylang oil and has a musky yet sharp, floral scent. The more you focus on its scent the more your nose seems to pick up. It’s quite an acquired taste BUT fortunately it is a scent that I enjoy in whatever format Lush choose to release it in.

I’ve been begging Lush to create a body spray or perfume in the Northern Lights scent since at least 2015, I’m still patiently waiting. No rush, Lush. 🙄

As soon as the Jasmine bath bomb touches the water there is no big eruption, or fierce hissing; Just a gentle stream of tiny white bubbles fizzing out of it, it’s so gentle that it barely makes any noise at all. Lush’s website describe the Jasmine bath bomb as ‘beautiful’ and ‘subtle’ and that’s exactly what it is in the water.

You don’t get bath art out of it, just silky-soft, milky-white bath water. Performance wise the Jasmine bath bomb really reminds me of the latest version of the So White bath bomb.

Its unique selling point is 100% its glorious scent. While some may find its lack of colour boring, others may enjoy its simplicity. Sometimes a crisp white bath bomb is just as refreshing as a bright orange or yellow one that is bursting with colour.

The Jasmine bath bomb is the slowest dissolving bath bomb I have ever used from Lush. After 30 minutes, although it was almost all gone, it was still happily fizzing away. I loved laying back in the bath feeling the little bubbles from it tickling my skin, if you shut your eyes, it’s almost like being in a mini jacuzzi. I felt well and truly relaxed in its waters.

I don’t think I’ve ever got out of a bath before the bath bomb has finished before but for the Jasmine bath bomb I had to as someone else needed the bathroom after half an hour… 😬

My skin felt soft and hydrated and the scent remained on my skin for the rest of the day too. Overall, I really did enjoy using the Jasmine bath bomb, its unique to all other bath bombs with its long fizzing time. What it lacks in bath art it well makes up for in scent and with how it leaves you feeling. I am super impressed with this one!

Lakes Bath Bomb from Lush

The Lakes Bath Bomb was first released by Lush as a product that was exclusive to August 2021’s Lush Kitchen subscription box. Shortly after this super-exclusive release it became a part of Lush UK’s regular line, giving more customers an opportunity to try it. At the time of writing this review it is still currently available.

Back before the Lakes was even released in the Lush Kitchen box, I read on one of Lush’s co-founders Instagram accounts that the Lakes bath bomb was inspired by a song written and performed by bestselling artist, Taylor Swift.

The Lakes bath bomb is a pretty little thing and is one of my favourite bath bomb releases from 2021. I am ecstatic that it has become a part of Lush’s permanent line. It would be a crime to have not made it more readily available for all to try.

It is a pastel green and pastel pink colour. To look at, it is very similar to (but not the same) as the charity bath bomb that was released by Lush a few years ago, Mermaid.

It is a standard shape and standard size bath bomb at 200g. There is just something about Lake’s pastel shades that make me instantly feel relaxed and refreshed. It’s plain but beautiful – sometimes less, is more.

The Lakes bath bomb was also inspired by the tranquillity of the Lake District, somewhere I have been lucky enough to visit back in my twenties. If I ever get to visit again – I’ll be sure to bring along a Lakes bath bomb.

The Lakes bath bomb has a long list of grounding and calming ingredients; labdanum resinoid, osmanthus absolute, myrrh resinoid, Siberian fir needle oil and oakmoss. Laying back in its waters really does make you feel as if you are reconnecting with nature.

The Lakes bath bomb’s scent is one I would love to have in perfume form. It’s fizzy like sherbet and both earthy and refreshing too. It’s not an easy scent to describe. The best I can come up with is that it’s like a breath of crisp, fresh air. One you’d only experience on a walk in the countryside.

As soon as you put the Lakes bath bomb into your bath water there is an explosion of green foam, as it bobs around the waters surface pink streaks begin to foam out of it too. The green and pink are both very cool shades which all adds to the tranquillity of the Lakes bathing experience.

Lakes is a slow fizzer, where its colours are of pastel shades, you don’t get any striking bath art, the colours do however create subtle light pink and green patterns. Lakes’ unique selling point is 100% its glorious scent.

As I said earlier, using it is just like you’re reconnecting with nature itself. If you shut your eyes and take a deep breath while lying in its waters it’s almost as if you’re bathing outside in the middle of a meadow, birds tweeting around you.

The Lakes bath bomb takes a good 10 minutes plus to fully dissolve. The water left behind is very similar to the water left behind by the Avobath bath bomb, however, Lakes’ water has a milkier more pearlescent finish. The water is silky smooth, my skin has never felt better after a good soak in the bath with a Lakes bath bomb.

Overall, I am a huge fan of this plain but beautiful bath bomb. I wholeheartedly stand by my earlier statement that it is one of my favourite Lush releases from 2021!
