Lemon Butterfly Bath Bomb from Lush

Lemon Butterfly Bath Bomb

The Lemon Butterfly Bath Bomb is 1 of 3 butterfly shaped bath bombs from Lush’s 2019 Mother’s day line. The carefully crafted, butterfly shaped bath bombs are far from the likes of the standard round ones such as the Big Blue and Sakura bath bombs.

With the use of 3D printers, Lush have been experimenting with their bath-bomb-moulds, trying out lots of different and super-intricate designs. Through the use of these 3D printers Lush created the beautiful Butterfly bath bombs.

The butterfly bath bombs have proven very popular because of their beautiful and clever design, Lush were very wise when they made the decision to make and release 4 different butterfly bath bombs. (I’ll talk about the 4th butterfly bath bomb that isn’t a part of the Mothers day line in its own review very soon.)

The Lemon Butterfly bath bombs ingredients are all things zingy; Containing both Sicilian lemon and sweet wild orange its yet another zesty-sweet, citrus scented bath bomb, perfect for awakening your senses!

As soon as the Lemon Butterfly bath bomb touches the water an array of green and yellow foam bursts out of it. A thin layer of colourful, silky soft foam slowly spreads across the waters surface as it slowly bubbles away.

As the Lemon Butterfly bath bomb charges around the bath it creates the most beautiful green and yellow bath art as seen in the photos below. For its size the Lemon Butterfly bath bomb is quite the slow fizzer, ensuring you stay in the bath for that little bit longer soaking up all of its goodness.

As the Lemon Butterfly bath bomb dissolves, it slowly turns your bath water a neon green colour. The shade of green makes the water left behind by the Avobath bath bomb seem boring and pasty…

A good soak in a Lemon Butterfly bath leaves your skin brighter and super-refreshed. Its scent although subtle stays on your skin long after you have got out of your bath tub.

Overall I am very impressed with the Lemon Butterfly bath bomb. Unfortunately for me the UK’s Mother’s Day has been and gone but I know some other countries still haven’t had their Mother’s Day yet.

Please make sure that you try this bath bomb at least once while you/if you still can, alongside the other 2 Mother’s Day butterfly bath bombs, Wild Butterfly and Rose Butterfly it really is a fantastic addition to the Mother’s Day 2019 line, as well as a product that I hope to see it again next year!

Wild Butterfly Bath Bomb from Lush

Wild Butterfly Bath Bomb
The Wild Butterfly Bath Bomb is 1 of 3 butterfly shaped bath bombs from Lush’s 2019 Mother’s day line. The carefully crafted, butterfly shaped bath bombs are far from the likes of the standard round ones such as the Dragon’s Egg or Intergalactic.

With the use of 3D printers, Lush have been experimenting with their bath-bomb-moulds, trying out lots of different and super-intricate designs. Through the use of these 3D printers Lush created the beautiful Butterfly bath bombs.

The butterfly bath bombs have proven very popular because of their beautiful and clever design, Lush were very wise when they made the decision to make and release 4 different butterfly bath bombs. (I’ll talk about the 4th butterfly bath bomb that isn’t a part of the Mothers day line in its own review very soon.)

Like the Rose Butterfly bath bomb, Wild Butterflies name doesn’t give much away when it comes down to guessing its ingredients; Containing sweet wild orange, petitgrain and olive leaf absolute its scent is a cocktail of sweet-citrus-fruit blended with subtle warming and earthy tones.

It’s sunshine-yellow and shimmery-orange design makes for some super sunny bath art.

As soon as the Wild Butterfly bath bomb touches the water an array of orange and yellow foam bursts out of it. A thin layer of colourful, silky soft foam slowly spreads across the waters surface as it slowly bubbles away.

The Wild Butterfly bath bombs supposedly shares its scent with the Berry Berry Christmas shower gel, until the bath bomb came in contact with the water this wasn’t at all apparent to me.

Once wet, my nose could finally detect the products’ familiarities, I however still don’t believe it is the exact same scent, Wild Butterflies scent hasn’t got the same sourness as the aforementioned shower gels.

The Wild Butterfly bath bomb is a fairly slow fizzer, ensuring that you have plenty of time to snap some bath art shots if that’s your type of thing. I know most people like to just lay back and relax, watching the bath bomb put on its show.

As the Wild Butterly bath bomb dissolves, it slowly turns your bath water a bright and very warm orange colour. The shade of orange reminds me of the bath water left behind by the Brightside bubble bar. I have yet to try both Brightside and Wild Butterfly together but I imagine they would work very well together.

A good soak in a Wild Butterfly bath leaves your skin brighter and super-refreshed. Its subtle scent also remains on your skin long after leaving your bath tub.

Overall I am very impressed with the Wild Butterfly bath bomb. Unfortunately for me the UK’s Mother’s Day has been and gone but I know some other countries still haven’t had their Mother’s Day yet. Please make sure that you try this bath bomb at least once while you still can, I promise you won’t regret it!

Mamma Mia Shower Scrub from Lush

Mamma Mia Shower Scrub.png

The Mamma Mia Shower Scrub is the latest of the shower scrubs to be released. Up until last year, Lush for as long as I can remember only had the one potted shower scrub on offer; The Rub Rub Rub. Don’t get me wrong, I adore Rub Rub Rub but when it was the only potted shower scrub available I did begin to grow a little bored of it.

Just as I’d noticed the lack of variety when it came down to the potted shower scrubs Lush must have read my mind. The Magic Crystal shower scrub was randomly released closely followed by another called Scrub Scrub Scrub.

The Mamma Mia shower scrub is a part of the 2019 Mother’s day line and shares its scent with one of the most underrated (in my personal opinion) bath bombs created by Lush, Stardust. Its mixture is also bright pink which happens to be my favourite colour. Including ingredients such as pink grapefruit, vanilla, rosewood and bergamot, Mamma Mia smells just like creamy vanilla ice cream.

To use Mamma Mia shower scrub all you have to do is scoop out a small amount from the pot and work it into your skin just like you would a shower gel. A little amount does go a long way but please feel free to over indulge while using it, I won’t tell anyone if you don’t! 😉

With any exfoliator I recommend that you pay particular attention to any dry patches you may have such as your knees and elbows.

Other ingredients that are also in the Mamma Mia shower scrub are Himalayan salt and rose clay, these 2 ingredients are Mamma Mia’s secret weapon when it comes down to perfect skin exfoliation and hydration all in one product.

MammaMiaDemo

It’s rare to find a product that aids both skin hydration and exfoliation so well, Lush have mastered the art and formula in all of their potted shower scrubs for both of these aspects. All in all, I have however found Mamma Mia to be the most moisturising out of all of the shower scrubs I have mentioned in this review.

I will be taking a pot of this with me on my next holiday as well as sun lotion, I do not have a holiday booked right now but if I ever do get the chance to get away, a sun, sea, sand and reading my book by the pool holiday is my idea of heaven. The Himalayan salt in Mamma Mia will help get rid of any dead skin making way for a nice sun tan and the rose clay will help soothe your skin after a day in the sun too. It’s a perfect sunny holiday product. 👌

I’m really sad to know that the Mamma Mia shower scrub will be gone with the rest of the Mother’s day stock soon. Its scent is light and unique, I liked Mamma Mia so much upon first use that I immediately ordered another pot of it as soon as I stepped out of the shower. Not just a small pot either, I am now the proud owner of a 600g pot and my husband isn’t allowed to touch it!

Rose Butterfly Bath Bomb from Lush

Rose Butterfly Bath Bomb

The Rose Butterfly Bath Bomb is 1 of 3 butterfly shaped bath bombs from Lush’s 2019 mother’s day line. The butterfly shaped bath bombs are far from the likes of the standard round ones such as the Avobath and Sex Bomb.

With the use of 3D printers, Lush have been experimenting with their non-virgin plastic bath bomb moulds, making lots of different and super-intricate designs. Through the use of these 3D printers Lush product inventor Gary Shears created the beautiful Butterfly bath bombs!

With a name like ‘Rose Butterfly’ I had decided before I had even read the bath bombs ingredients list that it would share its scent or be similar to the scent of the Rose Jam shower gel, I was wrong, so, so wrong…

Once my Rose Butterfly bath bomb arrived I was shocked to discover that its scent was reminiscent of the Butterball bath bomb. Although its ingredients list says otherwise, I do not think I could tell the difference between the two if I was presented them both while blind folded.

Sure, Rose Butterflies scent has a little more of a floral-fruity tone to it but its scent is so alike to Butterball, even my husband connected the two on first sniff, unprompted. Containing Sicilian lemon and rose oil the Rose Butterfly doesn’t smell like I think it should at all.

It just goes to show what different quantity amounts of ingredients can do, if you’re not a huge fan of floral or rose scents, (as crazy as it sounds) the Rose Butterfly might be a good choice for you.

As soon as the Rose Butterfly bath bomb touches the water an array of blue, purple and pink foam bursts out of it. A thin layer of colourful, silky soft foam spreads across the waters surface as the Rose Butterfly bath bomb slowly bubbles away.

The blues, purples and pink colours work really well together. The clash of colours make for some very impressive bath art. I couldn’t help but ‘ooo!’ at it as it bobbed around my bath, slowly dissolving while turning the bath water a very impressive and bold, dark blue.

The Rose Butterfly bath bomb is a fairly slow fizzer, ensuring that you have plenty of time to snap some bath art shots if that’s your type of thing… I know most people like to just lay back and relax, watching the bath bomb dance around the water.

A good soak in a Rose Butterfly bath leaves your skin soft and refreshed. It is also incredibly hydrating which is something I love in a bath bomb. Overall I am very impressed with the Rose Butterfly and I am looking forward to reviewing the other butterfly bath bombs for you all on here in the not so distant future! 😊

Beak Street Shower Bomb from Lush

Beak Street Shower Bomb

The Beak Street Shower Bomb is yet another Easter 2019 product that I can’t get enough of. Sharing its scent with the hugely popular Let the Good Times Roll fresh cleanser it has caused a wave of excitement within the Lush community.

Shower Bombs are still a relatively new product invention from Lush but with the 2019 Spring collections featuring 2 brand new limited edition shower bombs, Strawberry Hill and Beak Street we’ve been spoilt for choice. I also haven’t even mentioned any of the new shower bombs that are currently only available at the worlds brand new and now biggest Lush flagship store in Liverpool, England.

To use a shower bomb all you need to do is take it into the shower with you and hold it under the water, it will instantly foam up. Lush then advise that you take a deep breath, allow the essential oils to surround you and then begin to cleanse yourself with the foam, just as you would use a shower gel. I find that leaving it in your hand for a good 30 seconds once wet ensures a much better lather.

The Beak Street shower bomb has been designed to resemble a beak just looking at it reminds me of being 4 years old and watching Big Bird from Seasame Street on the little tv in my nan’s room. When I first picked Beak Street up to sniff I was a little disappointed, the rich and incredibly moreish buttery popcorn fragrance that I love from the Let the Good Times Roll fresh cleanser wasn’t apparent at all. That was until I used it in the shower.

The very first time I used the Beak Street shower bomb I used the whole thing in just one shower. Most shower bombs are good enough split in to 2 pieces, some even 3. Using Beak Street as a whole felt very wasteful, my problem is that the scent is just so good I can’t help but use it all in one shower, even when I’ve broken it in half beforehand.

As soon as the stream of water touches Beak Street the scent just explodes out of it, filling my shower space with the sweet and moreish fragrance of hot buttery popcorn. As I mentioned earlier I was disappointed that it didn’t smell of very much before use, I’m so glad I didn’t let this put me off of trying it as there really is no scent like it once you have it in the hot and steamy shower!

Holding Beak Street under the shower stream leaves you with a handful of silky smooth custard yellow shower-gel-moose. It lathers quickly and alongside the Strawberry Hill shower bomb is the most like a shower cream or gel that I have experienced while using a Lush shower bomb.

What I really like about the Beak Street shower bomb is how it made my skin feel after use, I wasn’t expecting it to be exfoliating at all, it’s a very gentle exfoliator but left my skin silky smooth and free of dead skin. Its gentle fragrance also stayed on my skin hours after getting out of the shower too. My skin looks and feels fabulous after using Beak Street.

I am going to be really sad to see the Beak Street shower bomb leave Lush shops once Easter 2019 is through. It really is one of my most favourite shower bombs to date. I will most certainly be stocking up on these before it is too late and I hope Lush bring it back or make it permanent stock very soon!

Strawberry Hill Shower Bomb from Lush

Much to the Lush communities disappointment the Lush’s Mothers Day line hasn’t included one of the most popular shower creams, Yummy Mummy for a couple of years now. For a long time we were spoilt for choice with its scent featuring in a number of the other seasonal products such as the Roller bath bomb and Flutterby bubble bar too and then NOTHING.

Fortunately for us, Lush have finally seen sense and have included a brand new Yummy Mummy scented product in this years (2019) Mother’s Day line, the Strawberry Hill Shower Bomb! Shower Bombs are still a relatively new product invention from Lush and I must say Strawberry Hill has been one of my favourites of the shower bombs yet.

To use a shower bomb all you do is take it into the shower with you and hold it under the water, it will instantly expand and foam up. Lush then advise that you take a deep breath, allow the essential oils to surround you and then begin to cleanse yourself with the foam, just as you would use a shower gel.

The Strawberry Hill shower bomb has been designed to resemble a strawberry somewhat, it even has strawberry like dimples! Ingredients wise the Strawberry Hill shower bomb contains vanilla absolute, fresh strawberry puree, sweet orange oil and rose absolute, these carefully selected ingredients are what gives the Strawberry Hill shower bomb its creamy strawberry fragrance.

The very first time I used the Strawberry Hill shower bomb I used the whole thing in just one shower. I actually regretted this as there was just so much of it to use, it was never ending, using it as a whole felt very wasteful. There’s over indulgence and then there’s just being silly. I wholeheartedly recommend cutting this shower bomb in half, I’d even go as far as maybe trying to break it into 3 pieces.

As soon as the water touches it, it explodes into a handful of silky smooth bright pink, shower-gel-moose.

As I mentioned earlier, a small amount of the shower bomb goes a very, very long way. I still have plenty left even when I break the shower bomb into 2 halves. It lathers quickly and is the most like a shower cream or gel that I have experienced while using a Lush shower bomb. Its scent is just as good as that from the Yummy Mummy shower cream.

The best thing about the Strawberry Hill shower bomb was how it not only made my skin feel after use but how its gentle fragrance stayed on my skin hours after getting out of the shower too. With shower bombs being a dry product I never, ever expected them to be quite as moisturising as Strawberry Hill.

As a self confessed pink freak, I knew I’d like this shower bomb as soon as I see it, I wasn’t however expecting to like it as much as I do. I am going to be really sad to see the Strawberry Hill shower bomb leave Lush shops once Mother’s Day is through. It really is the best of the shower bombs that I have had the pleasure of trying from Lush so far. I will most certainly be stocking up on these before it is too late!

More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb from Lush

More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb

The very first thing I noticed when I was presented with the More Tea and Sympathy Bath Bomb was its delicious scent. I’m a huge fan of anything pink so the fact its scent was what first caught my undivided attention says a lot about this bath bomb.

The More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb is designed in the shape of a mini pink teapot, decorated with a pinch of blue cornflowers just like the Cheer Up Buttercup bath bomb, it’s very easy on the eye.

The cornflowers aren’t its only decoration either, the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb also contains an Earl Grey tea bag in its centre, attached is its tea bag label that reads the bath bombs name.

The More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb also contains a long list of ingredients, these include bergamot oil, green tea absolute and neroli oil to name just a few. Its scent put simply is the most desirable  Lush scent I have ever come across.

A bold statement I know but it’s scent is just so incredibly moreish. There is just something about the blend of bergamot and neroli oil that is so addictive.

It has a pleasant fruity fragrance, sweet but subtle. It reminds me very much of the Chameleon bath bombs scent. I want to smell of it ALL the time.

If Lush do not recreate this bath bombs scent in to other product formats I’m going to be incredibly disappointed. After all, they did it for the Goddess bath bomb in a very short space of time, why not for this gorgeous bath bomb too? in my personal opinion this bath bomb is a thousand times better than the Goddess bath bomb, just saying…

Lush, I alongside many others within the community really want you to make this products scent into every format possible. PLEASE!!! – I can’t stress my need for this scent enough! As soon as the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb hits the water there is an explosion of pink foam.

The bath bomb dances around the waters surface with the tea bags label in tow. The blue cornflowers become loose and spread out on the waters surface. For its size the More Tea and Sympathy bath bomb does fizzle away quite quickly.

Once the bath bomb has almost dissolved the Earl Grey tea bag escapes from its bath bomb exterior, spouting a little stream of bright orange bubbles from it. Something I wasn’t expecting at all.

The water left behind by this bath bomb is the most beautiful shade of pink that I have seen from any Lush product before. It rivals the pinkness left behind by both the Think Pink bath bomb and Comforter bubble bar. The water is silky smooth and my skin laps it up.

The very best thing about this bath bomb is that its scent stays with you on your skin hours and hours after getting out of the bath. I won’t bore you any more by talking about its scent, all I have left to say is it was very hard to not eat myself after using it. 😉

My only complaint about this bath bomb is its staggering price, at almost £8 per bath bomb I can’t afford to stock up on these before Mothers Day is through. Something that has really struck a chord with me.

I don’t normally mention price in my reviews but for this one I feel I had to, I plead once more to Lush, PLEASE MAKE MORE PRODUCTS WITH THE MORE TEA AND SYMPATHY BATH BOMBS SCENT! and make sure they’re a little bit cheaper too please! 😋
