White Noise Bath Bomb from Lush

You may or may not have seen that ASOS have started to sell Lush-bundle-giftsets. I’m not 100% sure as to why Lush have decided to partner with them from a sales angle but apart from the bath bomb that was included in June 2021’s Lush Kitchen Subscription box, Lush’s White Noise Bath Bomb is exclusive to and only available to purchase from ASOS in a giftset-bundle which also includes the best-selling Intergalactic bath bomb.

You’ll recognise the scent of the White Noise bath bomb if you have previously used the now discontinued, Kitsune bath bomb. Containing cedarwood, Sicilian red mandarin, patchouli, and benzoin resinoid oils the White Noise bath bomb has many great qualities. It’s a product that is packed full of warmth and energy, I’d describe it as warmer versions of the Avobath or Dragon’s Egg bath bombs.

It seems to have the same citrus-punch of those bath bombs but with a much warmer fragrance-layer because of the patchouli and benzoin resinoid oils.

White Noises interesting mix of ingredients makes the bath bomb a great bathing-partner to have if you are like me and live with chronic pain. The benzoin resinoid mixed with the patchouli oil stimulates blood flow which helps with the soothing of your muscles, this in turn helps you to wind down by lulling you into a state of pure relaxation, all you have to do is lay back and simply enjoy your bath!

The White Noise bath bomb has quite the crazy design, Lush have clearly had a lot of fun creating the mould for this product with their 3D printer, it strangely looks just how I’d picture White Noise if it was a solid entity; Decorated with sharp abstract shapes and patches of cool, grey-washed colours, it’s eye-catching to say the least.

Once in the water the White Noise bath bomb creates an explosion of cool-toned-colours. Light blue, white, silver, grey and minty green bath art shoots out of the bath bomb as it speedboats around the water’s surface shimmering.

It doesn’t take long for the White Noise bath bomb to fully dissolve but the bath art it creates is magnificent, my photos in this post do the bath bomb no justice at all. The water left behind is a grey-tinted minty-green. One thing I really noticed about White Noise is just how much grey is in it. Yet, it isn’t at all dull.

Overall I am really impressed with the White Noise bath bomb, it’s pretty and its scent is incredibly energising as well as warm even though its colouring is cool. It really does tease your senses. I can’t wait to see what bath bomb Lush creates for us next!

#TBH365 Bath Bomb from Lush

The #TBH365 Bath Bomb is yet another wonderful, limited edition, charity bath bomb released in May 2021 by Lush. #TBH365 is an abbreviation of the statement, Teach Black History, all year round. This fundraising bath bomb is raising money for a social enterprise called The Black Curriculum.

The Black Curriculum was founded back in 2019, its main purpose is to address the lack of Black British history within the UK national curriculum.

All proceeds (minus VAT) made from the sales of the TBH bath bomb will be donated to The Black Curriculum.

The Black Curriculum deliver art focused Black history programmes and provide teacher training to facilitate social change. The programmes they deliver are suitable for all young people aged 8-16. Here is a direct link to their website if you’d like to find out more information. (The Black Curriculum)

I left school back in 2006 and honestly cannot remember studying any black history in length at all. I think we joined in with Black history month all of once and it was more or less just one or two lessons. As someone who has always been very interested in history (my history GCSE teacher hated me and would disagree, but I do generally enjoy the subject) I find this appalling.

If it wasn’t for campaigns like this, so many people do, would and will remain ignorant to the inexcusable fact that the teaching of Black history just isn’t given the right or in some cases any amount of coverage within schools.

For the purpose of this review, I am going to refer to the #TBH365 bath bomb as the TBH bath bomb from now on, just to make writing and reading this review a little easier. I don’t know about you but too many hashtags and numbers are making my eyes go funny!

The TBH bath bomb shares its scent with the Charity Pot/Grassroots Lush-scent-family and contains a carefully selected list of ingredients that work together impeccably. – Geranium, rosewood and ylang ylang oils alongside a generous helping of vanilla absolute means its fragrance is best described as a warm yet gentle-floral and vanilla rich affair.

The TBH bath bomb is designed to look like an open book, it is decorated with the, The Black Curriculum’s Logo and also includes an etched ribbon-bookmark and is a HUGE bath bomb! You can see just how big it is in the photo of me holding it. – I have actually seen several people snap their bath bomb in half using each piece in 2 different baths.

Sporting a beautiful blend of pretty colours, red, orange, yellow and white; I was excited to see what bath art the TBH bath bomb would create. Not only is TBH designed with bright, warm, and super inviting colours but it also has a very generous amount of hypnotizingly-sparkly gold shimmer in!

The bath art that the TBH bath bomb creates is truly stunning, my photos in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all. As the bath bomb is quite big, it takes a long time to fully dissolve BUT once you’re in the tub with it, it doesn’t take long for you to drift off into a state of pure relaxation.

Once the TBH bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright orange, shimmery-gold-water that I couldn’t help but swirl around a bit before I got out, the way it swirls around is just so incredibly mesmerising.

The bath bombs gentle scent remains on your skin for a good few hours after leaving the bathtub, it also left my skin feeling hydrated and appearing brighter and completely refreshed. Overall, I am over-the-moon in-love with the TBH bath bomb. It is made to raise awareness and funds for a brilliant cause, creates captivatingly beautiful bath art all while also smelling absolutely delicious! …Oh how I wish it wasn’t a limited edition product.

Follow The White Rabbit Bath Bomb from Lush

You may be awash with feelings of déjà vu when you look at the Follow The White Rabbit Bath Bomb for several reasons.

The first reason is how similar its design and colourings are to the Winter bath bomb favourite, Snowman Dreaming. The second and third being its mould is the exact same used for the Bouncy Bunny shower jelly and Spring Bunny bath bomb from Lush Easter lines of the past.

Ever since the aforementioned, Snowman Dreaming bath bomb was released a few Winters ago I have hoped Lush would do a similar bunny shaped bath bomb with the Bouncy Bunny scent and for Easter 2021, Lush did!

The Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb is a smaller sized Lush bath bomb, about the same size as an old-style Butterbear or old-style Ickle Baby Bot bath bomb, it fits snuggly in my hand.

All good things come in small packages and what Follow The White Rabbit lacks in size it well makes up for with its scent and performance in the water.

Containing a mix of buchu, bergamot and Sicilian lemon oils, the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb has a wonderfully refreshing scent that is deliciously moreish. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up bath product, search no more. The Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb will put more than a spring in your step, a good soak in its citrus-waters will leave you cheery and uplifted.

As soon as the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb comes into contact with water you are greeted with an explosion of colours. Pinks, reds, oranges, yellows, greens and blues shoot out of its left side leaving behind a rainbow-stream of bath bomb foam.

Even though the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb is small, it’s a reasonably slow fizzer. Giving you more than enough time to appreciate the kaleidoscope of colourful bath art it creates. The bath art is out of this world, my photos in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all.

I enjoyed using the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb so much that I immediately ordered 2 more straight after using it.

All good things must come to an end and once the Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb has fully dissolved, you are left with milky violet water that softens and lightly fragrances your skin.

Its scent remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day. I hope that one day Lush can create a body spray of the Follow The White Rabbit bath bombs fragrance, it’s perfect for the Spring but its wonderfully refreshing scent would work all year round.

The Follow The White Rabbit bath bomb is a must have from this years Easter line, if it doesn’t return year in, year out Lush will be in my bad books!

Rose Gold Bath Bomb from Lush

The Rose Gold Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited edition product from Lush’s 2021 Mother’s Day collection. The care and attention to detail that Lush have put in to designing this bath bomb blows me away, it’s a piece of art, so much so that it took all of my willpower to put it in to my bath water.

I really, really didn’t want to see it slowly disappear only to go down the drain never to be seen again…

As you can see from the above and below photos, the Rose Gold bath bomb is incredibly detailed, Lush really went to town with the 3d printer when creating the mould for this bath bomb.

The more I stare at the Rose Gold bath bomb, the more type of flowers that seem to appear in the bath bombs design, it looks like the Lush gods carved it with unicorn horns! 😉 I see daisies, roses, ivy… The list goes on and on.

The Rose Gold bath bomb shares its scent with the Winter Garden bath bomb from 2020’s Winter line. Containing benzoin resinoid, ylang ylang and bergamot oil its scent is a rich yet musky, floral blend.

The Rose Gold bath bomb is as its name suggests, a rose gold colour decorated with a light sprinkling of natural golden shimmer.

As soon as the Rose Gold bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of dark pink. I wasn’t expecting much bath art from the Rose Gold bath bomb as Lush had put in so much effort with its exterior design BUT after a few minutes, orange and pink swirls began to fizzle out of it. Leaving pretty patterns across the water surface.

Bath art wise, the Rose Gold bath bomb is incredible. My photos in this post do it no justice at all. If you’ve used the Christmas Sweater bath bomb it’s just as spectacular as that in the water.

Once the Rose Gold bath bomb has fully dissolved you’re left with bright orange, silky-soft bath water.

The musky floral fragrance lasts right up until the last drop of water goes down your plug hole. It also stays on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day too. I normally find the more floral-based-ingredients that bath bombs have, the dryer they are on your skin. The Rose Gold bath bomb however left my skin perfectly hydrated and appearing and feeling much brighter.

Overall I really enjoyed getting to know the Rose Gold bath bomb, the clear winning factor of it is definitely its design, I don’t think Lush have ever created a more intricate, visually pleasing bath bomb!

Mother of Pearl Bath Bomb from Lush

The Mother of Pearl Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited edition product from Lush’s 2021 Mother’s Day collection. As its name suggests, the Mother of Pearl bath bomb is designed to look just like a fresh water pearl. Every last detail of a pearl has been captured and crafted into this truly beautiful bath bomb, even its outer layer is a true representation of a pearls pearlescent finish.

The Mother of Pearl bath bomb contains a long list of ingredients; Lush have blended ylang ylang, vanilla absolute, benzoin resinoid, borage, hibiscus seed and organic rose hip oils to create a brand new scent family. Described as an ‘orchid-scented, delicate floral fragrance’ on Lush’s website I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one.

If you’re a fan of the softer, less in-your-face Lush products such as the Sakura or Avobath bath bombs then the Mother of Pearl bath bomb would be a good choice for you. It’s a very simple bath bomb but I’ve said this before and I’m going to say this again now, sometimes less really is more, especially when it comes to Lush.

What the Mother of Pearl bath bomb lacks in bath art, it well makes up for in how it transforms your bath water into a pool of silky soft, super creamy and milky coloured waters.

As soon as the Mother of Pearl bath bomb comes into contact with your bath water, it begins to slowly fizzle away. Inside the Mother of Pearl is a hidden layer of oils making this a real treat for your skin. Its gentle, orchid fragrance slowly fills your bathroom as the bath bomb dissolves.

Prior to using the Mother of Pearl bath bomb I wasn’t expecting much from it at all, I knew there wouldn’t be any bath art yet when I got round to trying it, I was still completely mesmerised by its beauty, I was just as captivated as I would be with a bright and colourful bath bomb.

There’s just something so refreshing and heavenly about the pearlescent white colour of the Mother of Pearl bath bomb.

Once the Mother of Pearl bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with silky, pearly-white bath water. The hidden oils and butters within it subtly soothe your skin, it’s not super oily either, skin-hydration wise it’s just right. The Mother of Pearl bath bomb is the perfect product to help your dry, Winter battered skin, adjust to the (not much warmer but warmer) Spring weather.

Overall I really enjoyed using the Mother of Pearl bath bomb, so much so I ordered a few more straight after using it. I’ll be very sad to see this bath bomb retire once the Mother’s Day holiday is over. I hope to see this little gem return for Mother’s Day year in, year out.

Eggy Wegg Bath Bomb from Lush

 

The Eggy Wegg Bath Bomb first featured in 2021’s Easter line, with it being my favourite colour, it was the very first product within the line that caught my eye. Bright pink with 3 fried eggs on its top-half as decoration, it’s hard to not be drawn to it.

Eggy Wegg is similar in design to the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb, instead of 3 clouds the Eggy Wegg bath bomb has its 3 fried eggs. Others have also compared Eggy Wegg to the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb, while both have 3 unique decorations on its top half, unlike Eggy Wegg’s fried eggs, the golden stars in Shoot for the Stars are mini bath melts.

I don’t like the comparison of Eggy Wegg and the aforementioned Shoot for the Stars bath bomb, I find the added bath melts in a bath bomb really do make for a completely different bathing experience. If you’re like me and don’t always enjoy super hydrating baths, then Eggy Wegg is well worth a try.

The Eggy Wegg bath bomb includes ingredients that I wouldn’t ever imagine working together, strangely they do however work. Sicilian lemon and spearmint oil blend together to give Eggy Wegg a fragrance a bit like a big bag of pick-and-mix sweets.

Its scent has a tropical-fruit twang and also a generous helping of invigorating spearmint. Both scents round each other off, it’s a unique scent but one I’d love to see in other product formats in the future.

As soon as the Eggy Wegg bath bomb comes in to contact with the bath water you are greeted with a hiss of hot pink, fizzing bubbles. It doesn’t take long for the beautiful bath art to begin spilling out of the bath bomb, charging around your bath tub.

Pink, yellow and white swirls begin to dance their way around the water surface, creating the most beautiful swirling bath art. The photos I have included in this review do the Eggy Wegg bath bomb no justice at all.

The yellow and pink patterns created by Eggy Wegg clash perfectly, if you’re familiar with the Angels Delight bath bomb, expect the same type of stand-out bright yellow and warm pink bath art.

Once the Eggy Wegg bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright pinky-orange tinted water. The water is silky-smooth and leaves your skin appearing and feeling softer and brighter.

For a bath bomb with a mix of such dominantly scented ingredients (lemon and spearmint) you’d expect its fragrance to be really strong on your skin, it is however a very subtle fragrance, not at all in-your-face. I could see the fragrance working very well in a body lotion format.

Overall I am very much in love with the Eggy Wegg bath bomb, it didn’t smell how I imagined an Easter product to smell but I think that’s what has made it so perfect. I’ll be very sad if this bath bomb doesn’t come back next Easter.

Atom Heart Mother Bath Bomb from Lush

The Atom Heart Mother Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited edition product from Lush’s 2021 Mother’s Day collection. When I learnt that it shared its scent with my all-time favourite Lush bath bomb (So White 2016 edition) I ordered 2 as soon as they became available.

The Atom Heart Mother bath bomb is light blue in colour and decorated with 3 white clouds on its top part, a lot of people have been comparing the cloud design to the ‘Woody wallpaper’ used in Andy’s bedroom in the Disney film, Toy Story.

A lot of Lush customers have become rather perplexed at the point of discovering the Atom Heart Mother bath bombs peculiar name. I myself was very confused, as well as slightly annoyed with its name. As someone who never stops talking about Lush a name that doesn’t roll off of the tongue can be some-what bothersome! 😉

After a quick Google I learnt that Lush didn’t just throw 3 random words together; The Atom Heart Mother bath bombs name was in fact inspired by the name of Pink Floyd’s first number 1 album.

I personally couldn’t name or sing/hum a single Pink Floyd song even if my life depended on it. I am however confident that many older customers (or those with a wide range of musical knowledge) will get the reference immediately.

According to Google, the rock band came up with the albums bizarre name after coming across an article in a newspaper that was about a woman who had been fitted with a ‘nuclear-powered pacemaker’. Your guess is as good as mine as to whether that is true or not!

Now that the Atom Heart Mothers peculiar name has been explained some-what, I can begin to let you all know my thoughts on the bath bomb itself.

When my parcel containing the Atom Heart Mother bath bombs arrived, I was pleased to see (or should I say smell) that its scent was exactly the same as the So White bath bomb that I mentioned earlier. Containing a blend of rose absolute, bergamot, neroli and Brazilian orange oils the Atom Heart Mothers scent smells just like crisp, freshly sliced apple chunks.

As soon as the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb comes in to contact with your bath water you are greeted with a gentle hiss of small blue and white bubbles. After a minute or so pink bubbles begin to materialise from it as well.

It doesn’t take long for the pink bubbles to become the most dominant of the 3 colours spurting out of the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb. Slowly but surely pink, white and small flecks of blue-bubbly-foam make beautiful swirling patterns on the bath water’s surface as the Atom Heart Mother charges around like a miniature power boat.

Underneath the blanket of beautiful bath art left behind by the bath bomb is silky soft, lilac coloured bath water. Unlike some Lush bath bombs the Atom Heart bath bombs scent remains through-out the entire time you are in the bath. Once out of the bath the apple scent also remains on your skin for the rest of the day.

I always come out of an Atom Heart Mother bath feeling instantly refreshed, its scent is incredibly uplifting and always gives me a real happiness-boost. I can’t help but top up its scent with the Once Upon A Time body sprayAtom Heart Mothers body spray equivalent.

Any product that has the So White/Once Upon A Time fragrance will always be one of my favourites as, as I said earlier it is one of if not my favourite Lush scent family. Since taking the colour out of the So White bath bomb back in 2019 the Lush Community have been crying out for a colourful tantamount and the Atom Heart Mother bath bomb does not disappoint! 😊

4:20PM CBD Bath Bomb from Lush

The 4:20pm CBD Bath Bomb is a brand-new product and is the first of its kind from Lush. It was released back on Christmas Eve, 2020. CBD is short for cannabidiol, cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive compound found in hemp plants which I am sure many sceptical people will be pleased to hear, means that using this bath bomb will not get you high.

There has been a lot of research conducted around the use of CBD oil and it is said to have a long list of health-benefits. In particular it helps with stress management and those suffering with anxiety and/or sleep problems.

CBD has also been proven to help people like me, who suffer from medical conditions that cause wide-spread chronic pain. The very reason I first got into Lush Cosmetics was because I was looking for natural alternatives to prescription painkiller medications. With this in mind I of course ordered a couple of the 4:20pm CBD bath bombs without hesitation as soon as they became available.

The above photo shows you both sides of the 4:20pm CBD bath bomb, it has to be the oddest shaped bath bomb I have seen from Lush to date. One side of the CBD bath bomb is round and green, and the other side is baby-pink with a peculiar square and triangle crystal-like-design. The green side has 4:20 etched into it and the baby-pink side has the words LUSH CBD etched into it.

There are several unconfirmed theories behind how the 4:20pm bath bomb got its name, I thought it was because during the first UK lockdown that is when Mark, the co-founder of Lush Cosmetics liked to take his daily bath. My husband however says it’s to do with a ‘special time’ associated with getting high. A sort of secret code between groups of friends.

I think I prefer the bath time theory but both could be the reason behind its name. Lush do like to poke fun at certain things and are well known for being and saying things that are a little tongue-in-cheek.

As soon as the 4:20pm CBD bath bomb comes into contact with the water you are greeted with a gentle hiss of green and light pink bubbles. It’s a fairly quick fizzer and doesn’t create any bath art. This gives you ample time to sit back, relax and reap the benefits of this carefully crafted bath bomb with no distractions.

The 4:20pm CBD bath bomb contains cannabidiol, patchouli and sandalwood oils, it scent is earthy, woody and calming. Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with silky soft, moss-green bath water. It left my skin looking brighter and more hydrated yet not at all oily.

Once I was out of the bath I did feel very relaxed, I wouldn’t say I was anymore relaxed than I’d normally be after just an ordinary Lush bath though. I will have to try the CBD bath bomb a few more times before I can be sure as to whether the cannabidiol had any real/extra effects on me pain-relief wise.

After my bath I did go on to have quite a stressful day and I admit I got through it better than I normally would have, whether this was to do with the lingering effects of the bath bomb will remain a mystery but I’d certainly be happy to use this bath bomb again either way. 😊

Love Me Do Bath Bomb from Lush

The Love Me Do Bath Bomb is a brand-new product from Lush’s 2021 Valentine’s Day collection. As you can clearly see from its picture, Love Me Do isn’t your average bath bomb as it is wrapped in a fully compostable muslin cloth…

With the Love Me Do bath bomb being wrapped it means you can enjoy the dry red-rose-petals 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!

The Love Me Do bath bomb contains a list of floral ingredients, there’s ylang-ylang and lavender oils, rose absolute and the aforementioned dried red-rose-petals. The tag and raffia-chord can both be composted too.

Scent-wise the Love Me Do bath bomb is the epitome of romance, it’s a fresh and powdery rose and lavender blend with entwined notes of ylang-ylang. If anyone got me a bunch of flowers for Valentine’s Day, I’d be very happy if the bouquet smelt like the Love Me Do bath bomb!

As soon as the Love Me Do bath bomb hits the water you are greeted with a hiss of bubbles. Love Me Do is incredibly pigmented, the water starts to immediately turn a deep-plumb-red and the powdery-floral-fragrance fills your bathroom, instantly relaxing you.

If you’re looking for bath art the Love Me Do bath bomb wouldn’t be a good choice of bath bombs to go for, what it however lacks in bath art, it well makes up for with its scent and how it makes your skin feel – I’ll talk a bit more about that later, *spoiler alert* it’s the best bit about this bath bomb…

After the Love Me Do bath bomb has fully dissolved all that’s left in the muslin cloth are the dried flower pieces. I’m not sure if the heat of the water and the petals combined make any difference to your bathing experience (like the seaweed in the Big Blue bath bomb softens the water) but I left the muslin cloth in the water right up until I pulled the plug anyway.

As promised here is a paragraph or 2 of my favourite thing about the Love Me Do bath bomb, HOW AMAZING MY SKIN FELT AFTER GETTING OUT OF THE BATH. I wasn’t expecting results quite like this at all, I’d always thought most Lush bath bombs left my skin looking and feeling brighter but the Love Me Do bath bomb is a game changer, my skin felt incredible. Hydrated, refreshed, brighter and silky-smooth.

Overall, I am really impressed with the Love Me Do bath bomb; I hope it comes back for the Valentine’s Day collection for years to come!

Heart Beat Bath Bomb from Lush

The Heart Beat Bath Bomb is a brand new release from Lush’s 2021 Valentine’s Day line. Lush have taken inspiration for the Heart Beat bath bombs design from the much loved, Christmas-time-classic, the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb.

Just like the Shoot for the Stars bath bomb the Heart Beat bath bomb has 3, shimmery-gold bath melts set in its side, the difference being that they are heart shaped instead of stars! (see photos above and below).

You may recognise the Heart Beat bath bombs scent as it features in several other much-loved Lush products, Rose Jam shower gel being the first product that springs to my-mind that is (at the time of writing this review) currently available to purchase too.

The Heart Beat bath bomb contains a long list of lovey-dovey floral ingredients; there’s rose absolute, rose oil and geranium oil. There is also some lemon and almond oil mixed in alongside an impressive amount of popping candy.

The heart shaped melts are made of organic cocoa butter and much like the Butterball bath bomb it is recommended that you use the Heart Beat bath bomb in a hot as you can stand it bath so that your skin can get the full benefits from the super-hydrating, heart shaped bath melts.

My very first experience with the Rose Jam scent was a surprise as, as soon as I had heard its name I ignorantly assumed that it would be an older ladies fragrance, it is however far from it. It is a rose-dominated-scent but the lemon oil in it gives it a sweet and zingy edge making it highly desirable to everyone, young or old.

As soon as the Heart Beat bath bomb comes into contact with your bath water you are greeted with a fierce hiss of fizzy, dark-pink bubbles. It slowly dances around the waters-surface, fizzing away, spreading small amounts of shimmer from the gold bath melts as it fills your bathroom with its inviting and warm Rose Jam scent.

Once Heart Beat is in the water my nose can’t help but pick out a candy-like fragrance coming from it. I’m wondering if this could maybe be from the popping candy that is in it as it’s not something I have noticed with any other Rose Jam scented product before…

Heart Beat is a fairly slow fizzer, by the time the popping candy started to do its thing I had completely forgotten it was even inside of the bath bomb. As always the popping candy puts on a snap, crackle and popping bath-time-show that you’d expect only from the likes of a fireworks display.

As I said earlier the Heart Beat bath bomb is best enjoyed in a hot as you can stand it bath as this melts down the heart-shaped-bath-melts into an oil making it one of Lush’s most hydrating bath bombs. I’m not a huge fan of the super hydrating bath bombs as I’m not very steady on my feet and generally have quite oily skin to start with but using one every now and again is quite the treat.

Annoyingly I do have to either hose myself down or dab off the excess oil with a towel once I am out of the bath, the Rose Jam scent however stays on your skin so you’re not losing the fragrance just the excess oils.

The bath-tub-clean-up isn’t too bad either, I run a wet (with hot water) sponge with a dab of shower gel over the bath and the oil does rinse away easily. Quite often I don’t need to do this with Lush bath bombs but Heart Beat does require a tiny bit of clean up. – Overall I do however really like the Heart Beat bath bomb and recommend that you try it at least once before the Valentine’s day stock retires for another year. 😊❤️
