Glitch Shower Gel from Lush

The Glitch Shower Gel was first released as a part of Lush’s 2022 Father’s Day line. You may recognise its scent from a much-loved golden oldie Lush product the Avoshower shower gel. The Glitch shower gel is a revamped version of Avoshower and if I’m going to be honest, I actually much prefer it. We’ll get more into why a bit later…

This year Lush have released some amazing new shower gels and Glitch is up there with my favourites. Until we’ve seen this year’s Halloween and Christmas stock I can’t say for sure that it’s my favourite shower gel from 2022 but right now it’s in my top 3 for sure.

Unlike the Sticky Dates shower gel from this years Eid line, Glitch sadly wasn’t kept on once the Father’s Day line retired for the year, luckily I however managed to grab an extra 2 bottles before they had completely sold out.

The Glitch shower gel is a lovely and bright shade of green, it’s so bright it almost glows! It has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency – which is the complete opposite of the same-smelling, super-runny Avoshower shower gel. It is lovely and creamy and also lathers up effortlessly too. Its ingredient list includes some of the following: Lemon balm infusion, lemongrass oil, bergamot oil, fresh lemon and lime juices and carrageenan extract.

Another popular product that shares its scent with the Glitch shower gel is the Avobath bath bomb, both are perfect products to use if you’re in need of a boost, there’s nothing like using Glitch shower gel first thing in the morning.

Its scent is so incredibly refreshing, its citrus rich and full of zing. Just a quick whiff of it from the bottle is enough to give you a little boost of energy. Mark my words, it’s a legendary shower gel, if Lush don’t bring it back again I will be very disappointed.

When it comes down to their new-release shower gels, Lush have really outdone themselves this year. As I have said in my previous 2022 shower gel reviews, Lush’s shower gel selection was in desperate need of new life and 2022 has been a brilliant year for Lush shower gels. Customers have demanded new shower gels and Lush have pulled through. Glitch has left me so excited for the new shower gels set to arrive in Autumn. If they’re half as good as Glitch we’re going to be very happy customers.

The Glitch shower gel lathers up easily and is super-duper creamy. I recommend adding a little of the shower water to it once it’s in your hands just to get it at the perfect lathering consistency, it’s incredibly creamy, one of the creamiest I’ve had from Lush. Adding a little water to it in your hands will ensure that a small amount of the shower gel goes a very long way. Without that extra water it would be quite gloopy.

Once the hot water and steam of the shower meets the shower gel and you begin to lather it up, its awakening scent engulfs you, filling your bathroom with a ‘powerhouse of invigorating lemongrass, lemon balm tea and cleansing lime juice.’ Overall, I cannot recommend Glitch shower gel enough, it has certainly made any early mornings I face a lot easier to handle!

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!

Purple Carrots Shower Gel from Lush

The Purple Carrots Shower Gel was one of 5 products available in this month’s Kitchen box (April 2022). SPOILER ALERT, I wholeheartedly believe that it is the best shower gel Lush have released in a very long time. With Calacas shower gel being the exception, Purple Carrots is now my all-time favourite Lush shower gel. A bold statement indeed, but one I stand by.

As much as I like the What’s Up, Doc? shower gel from this year’s Easter line, I will never understand how it got made a part of the Easter line over the Purple Carrots shower gel. Both are amazing, Lush have really outdone themselves when it comes to their new shower gels this year BUT Purple Carrots has blown me away so much more than the latter has.

The Purple Carrots shower gel is, as its name suggests, purple. It’s a slightly lighter shade of purple than the Plum Rain shower gel and has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency.

The Purple Carrots shower gel contains a long list of ingredients. It has both purple carrot infusion and carrageenan extract, as well as the following essential oils; bergamot, buchu and Sicilian lemon. It actually shares its scent with several past products – best remembered in the likes of the Follow the White Rabbit bath bomb and the Bunch of Carrots reusable bubble bar.

The delicate yet refreshing scent of the Purple Carrots shower gel is very nostalgic to me as it reminds me of my paternal nan and grandads house when I was a little. It makes me feel safe and uplifted, it’s a simple but beautiful citrusy fragrance that I cannot get enough of.

As I said earlier, Lush have really outdone themselves this year when it comes down to their new-release shower gels, they just keep getting better. If Purple Carrots doesn’t become a mainline product in the not-so-distant future, Lush are making a big mistake. Choosing not to release the Purple Carrots shower gel properly, would be as big of a mistake from Lush as when they decided to cut off all their customers with their ‘deletion’ of social media.

It is a crime to let the Purple Carrots shower gel be just a one-off exclusive to April 2022’s Lush Kitchen Subscription box. If Lush were still on social media I’d be tagging and messaging them every day, bugging them to bring it out as a new shower gel in their permanent all-year-round line.

As I said earlier, the Purple Carrots shower gels consistency is deliciously 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. Once the hot water and steam of the shower meets the shower gel and you begin to lather it up, its scent engulfs you, filling your bathroom with its gorgeously refreshing scent.

The Purple Carrots shower gel leaves my skin looking and feeling clean, refreshed, soft and well moisturised. After I’ve used it, the scent lasts on my skin for a good few hours. It’s also really hydrating too. It seems to lock in moisture just as well as a body lotion does. Overall, I cannot recommend the Purple Carrots shower gel more, I am extremely bitter to only have one bottle of it. Lush, please, please bring it out properly!

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.

Gummy Bear Shower Jelly from Lush

The Gummy Bear Shower Jelly is a brand-new, limited-edition, Easter product that first became available in the UK at the start of March 2022. Designed to look just like the bear shaped sweets adored by children and adults alike, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on a pot.

Gummy Bear is a fairly small 85g, bright orange shower jelly. It fits perfectly in my hand making it very easy to use.

The Gummy Bear shower jelly contains coconut milk, fresh mango juice and the following essential oils, buchu, cardamom, litsea cubeba and sweet wild orange. Its scent is new to Lush too, it smells of a strong, tropical-fruit-cocktail with a super-sugary sweet twist.

It’s a very punchy and heavy scent, if you like the bolder Lush-scent families, I’d recommend giving the Gummy Bear shower jelly a try.

With Gummy Bear being a character shaped shower jelly, I was hesitant to use it at first as unfortunately I find more often than not, that the character shaped jellies aren’t always as sturdy and robust as the normal pot shaped ones.

As predicted, Gummy Bear did begin to fall apart after just a few uses. However, I realised I’d rather use it and lose it than not use it at all! So far, I’ve used it 4 times and although it is showing wear and tear, there’s plenty more to go around yet.

There is no right or wrong way to use a shower jelly, I prefer to use mine in the same way as you would a bar of soap, whole. Some people however chop their shower jellies up using a few pieces at a time – a good method if you’re sharing it with someone else.

If you do keep it whole, as I mentioned above, the Gummy Bear shower jelly is just the right size to fit snuggly in your hand. It is a lot easier to keep a hold of in the shower being this size. Once you’ve used it simply rinse it off and then pop it back into the pot until you next want to use it.

The Gummy Bear shower jelly lathers up quickly and creates a super creamy, almost-milky foam. A little goes a long way and glides over your skin easily.

As I stated earlier its scent is strong. As soon as you take the pots lid off, you are hit with its fruity scent BUT in use it really comes alive. Mixed alongside the hot water and steam of the shower its scent literally engulfs your bathroom. It has a tartness to it that makes me think of fruit pastels and jelly babies.

After using the Gummy Bear shower jelly my skin feels soft, clean, and fresh, it also appears somewhat brighter. It isn’t hugely moisturising but doesn’t leave me desperate to coat myself in body lotion either.

Overall I have enjoyed using the Gummy Bears shower jelly, it’s not my favourite from this year’s Easter line but I can see it selling quite well.

What’s Up, Doc? Shower Gel from Lush

The What’s Up, Doc? Shower Gel is a brand-new, limited-edition, Easter product that first became available in the UK at the start of March 2022. I have well and truly grown bored of Lush’s all-year-round, staple-shower-gels so was very excited to get my hands on a bottle of the What’s Up, Doc? shower gel.

What’s Up, Doc? shower gel is a beautiful shade of warm-orange, to look at it’s very similar to the likes of the Bubbly shower gel. It has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency. Since its release it has proven very popular with customers old and new.

The What’s Up, Doc? shower gel contains a long list of ingredients including, fresh carrot infusion, violet leaf absolute, carrot juice and cold pressed carrot seed oil; Alongside those are the following essential oils too, bergamot, and lime.

The What’s Up, Doc? shower gel has a brand-new Lush scent. It’s deliciously fruity, primarily it’s meant to be a raspberry scent, but it has several layers to its fragrance, the more you sniff the more you can make out. Its rich berry-ness makes it an incredibly refreshing and mouth-watering scent, it’s perfect for the Springtime and I can see it being a popular choice for the Summer too.

It’s really like no other shower gel Lush have released before, there was a gap in the Lush-market for a fruity, mood brightening shower gel and wow has What’s Up, Doc? stepped up to the job, it’s blown me away. This probably won’t happen because Lush rarely listen to their customers anymore but Lush are making a big mistake by not making this delicious shower gel a part of their permanent range!

I’ve not liked a shower gel this much since Lush released the Intergalactic and Sultana shower gels.

As I said earlier, the What’s Up, Doc? 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 really comes alive, it smells so good it immediately makes me want to drink a pint of tropical juice. I always put an extra squirt of it into my hand just because I love the scent so much.

Like the Mimosa shower gel from this years’ (2022) Mother’s Day line, it reminds me of warmer weather and the sunshine. It literally washes away your Winter blues, I recently took it away with me and it’s such an amazing pick-me-up. Using it will now always remind me of my mini trip away.

My favourite thing about the What’s Up, Doc? shower gel is however how it leaves my skin looking and feeling. After I’ve used it, the scent remains on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day and it leaves my skin incredibly soft. It’s also incredibly hydrating too; Overall, I adore this shower gel, it’s one of the best Lush have ever released. I’d love to see this scent in other product formats soon!

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.

Besties Bubble Bar from Lush

The Besties Bubble Bar is a brand-new, limited edition, Lush product that is a proud, stand-out member of this years (2022) Mother’s Day line. It first became available in the middle of February 2022 and has proven very popular since its release.

The Besties bubble bar is designed to look like an adult and baby giraffe having a cuddle, can a bubble bar get any cuter? I think not…

This year’s Mother’s Day line is packed full of some of the cutest products Lush have ever created, there seems to be a bit of an animal theme going on and I can’t get enough of it!

Besties bubble bar is bright yellow with bright pink spots, its scent is a part of Lush’s Celebrate scent-family. The Celebrate scent is hugely popular and features in many Lush products, I believe the most recently released products that share its fragrance are the Golden Pudding bath bomb and Celebrate body spray.

Besties contains, Brazilian orange and lime oils. Its scent is warm, bubbly, and full of citrusy goodness. It literally smells of happiness. Even just a quick whiff of it always puts a smile on my face.

The scent seems to work in whatever product format Lush make it into. To this day, Lush have never released a Celebrate scented product that I haven’t liked.

The Besties bubble bar is 120g so a little bit smaller than the, The Comforter bubble bar. The one thing I love about Lush’s bubble bars over their bath bombs is that they can be spread out over several baths. You could easily get 3 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Besties bubble bar.

I know some people will use the whole bar in one bath and it’s all down to personal preference, I do however recommend spreading it out so that you get more for your money.

Spreading it out over 2 or 3 baths does not hinder how well it works bubble and scent wise either. A small amount of this bubble bar goes a very long way!

To use the Besties bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it. I find this the most effective way to use single use bubble bars.

This method is also the best way to ensure none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted and through trial and error, I have found that this method makes the most bubbles.

It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form, underneath is bright yellow, citrusy scented, silky-smooth bath water.


The scent and bubbles last throughout my whole time in the bath and the silky-smooth water leaves my skin feeling and appearing brighter. I wouldn’t say the Besties bubble bar is particularly moisturising, but it didn’t dry out my skin at all.

Overall I really enjoyed using the Besties bubble bar, its scent is perfect, and its design is one of the cutest I have seen from Lush. There’s just something about Lush products with faces! Besties was almost too cute to use but I can never resist using a Celebrate scented product!

I hope Besties comes back for Mother’s Day next year although I doubt it will as Lush are famous for making ‘one time’ products.

Yummy Custard Body Wash from Lush

The Yummy Custard Body Wash is a brand-new, limited edition, 2022 Mother’s Day product. This year’s range isn’t as large as those from years before BUT each product in it is of the highest standard. I much prefer quality over quantity and this year’s Mother’s Day line is the best seasonal line we’ve had in a long time.

Yummy Custard body wash contains vanilla oat milk, fair trade organic aloe vera gel, corn starch, vanilla pod powder and glycerine.

It shares its scent with the Let the Good Times Roll fresh cleanser and the now discontinued, Nana shower gel. Both of those products are loved by all in my household so the chance of trying a body wash equivalent had us all eager to try it.

In October 2021, Lush released another body wash called Posh Chocolate. Yummy Custard is very similar consistency wise. It’s a lot like the butter icing you get on the last slice of a big cake, almost solid on the outside but fluffy and creamy underneath that very thin outer layer.

As you can see in the photo above, Yummy Custard is a creamy off-white colour and is speckled with tiny black vanilla seeds. A little amount of it goes a very long way making it excellent value for money.

It’s creamy consistency just glides onto your skin, melting and sinking in like butter on hot toast; It’s amazing for my dry skin. It’s quite literally the best in-shower-product that I have used on my dry skin.


It instantly soothes and my skin has never looked so well nourished and smooth in such a short space of time. One minute my skin is dry, the next I use Yummy Custard and it’s like my skin was never dry at all!

To use, all you’re meant to do is scoop a little amount of it out of the pot and then slather it all over your body. You just massage it in, concentrating a little more on your dryer areas such as your elbows and knees, then you simply rinse it off. I then just pat myself dry with a towel.

The tiny black vanilla seeds in it do not scratch or irritate you at all, if I’m being honest, I don’t even notice them – Amazingly, its sweet popcorn like fragrance remained on my skin right into the next day, my skin is also just as smooth and nourished 24 hours after using it too, something I was pleasantly surprised with.


I will most certainly be taking a large pot of this on my next sunny holiday, I can imagine it feeling amazing on your skin after a long day in the sun. I love how gentle the formula is too. My skin has never felt so good!

If you love the Posh Chocolate body wash then I highly recommend you trying out Yummy Custard. I think I may in fact like Yummy Custard more than I do Posh Chocolate…

Overall, I LOVE the Yummy Custard body wash, it is so much more than just your standard body wash, my skin is quite dry but I could see it working just as well as on all skin types. I can’t get over how amazing it makes my skin feel. You really do have to grab a pot while it’s still available.

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.
