The Snowball Bath Bomb is yet another brand-new product from this year’s Christmas line-up.
There has never been a bath bomb quite like it either; Each Snowball bath bomb is hand pressed without a bath-bomb-mould so that it looks just like an actual snowball.
I promise they aren’t just ‘imperfect’ bath bombs made by the Lush manufacturing team after helping themselves to the whisky that was meant to be left out for Santa!
The Snowball bath bomb contains eucalyptus, lemongrass, and peppermint oil. Its scent is fresh and crisp which is just how I would also describe snow;
Eucalyptus is a popular ingredient to use if you’re feeling under the weather and features heavily in anything made to help manage the symptoms of a common cold, this is due to its decongestant and antibacterial properties. It is perfect for this time of year.
The Snowball is a sharply scented and incredibly refreshing bath bomb, its scent alone can help clear and balance your mind as well as banishing away any Winter blues.
The Lush website tells you to not be fooled by the Snowball bath bombs initial ‘low-key’ appearance, it may look just like a snowball but inside it’s a whole different story.
As soon as the Snowball bath bomb touches your bath water you are greeted with a burst of ice-white-foam. The Snowball bath bomb floats around for a good 5 minutes spilling out just white, then suddenly blue foam begins to spill out of it too.
At first, I thought that the blue foam wasn’t going to last for very long, but I was wrong… If you’ve had the pleasure of using the Frozen bath bomb before, you wouldn’t be completely bonkers to think that the bath art photos below were created by the Frozen bath bomb.
Surprisingly once it gets going, the Snowball bath bombs bath art is almost identical to that created by the Frozen bath bomb. I couldn’t keep my eyes off of the beautiful, blue and shimmery bath art swirls.
The bath art seems to go on forever, after about 10 minutes the Snowball bath bomb is finally fully dissolved.
The water left behind is soft and cooling on the skin, it isn’t quite as sparkly as the water left behind from the aforementioned Frozen bath bomb but it is a very similar blue, with a slight pearlescent shimmer.
Out of all of the new bath bombs from this year’s Winter line, the Snowball bath bomb was the one that surprised me the most. Just like the So White bath bomb from the 2016 Winter line I was not expecting such colourful insides!
The scent is also beautiful and suits the idea of snow perfectly. Alongside the latest version of the Jingle Bells bath bomb I don’t think there has ever been a more powerfully awakening duo, both are well worth a try and 2 products that I’d love to see come back next year too.
