Trick or Treat Lip Scrub from Lush

The Trick or Treat Lip Scrub is a brand new, limited edition product from Lush’s 2021 Halloween line. I use Lush lip scrubs almost every day so whenever a new one comes out I always order myself a pot.

The main ingredient in all of Lush’s lip scrubs is caster sugar. To this day I am still lost for words that such a simple and natural mix of ingredients can do such a great job. It really does make me question why other cosmetic companies ever actively chose to use (the now banned) micro-plastics in their exfoliation products.

Lush’s lip scrubs are ridiculously underrated, if you’re on the fence about giving them a go I promise you, you will not be disappointed.

Using Lush lip scrubs requires a minimum amount of effort, they cover everything your lips need to always look and feel great. They are the perfect product to exfoliate dry or chapped lips and are also very good at softening and hydrating them at the same time. Exfoliating your lips has so many benefits and with all thanks to Lush, has never been easier or tastier!

As well as caster sugar the Trick or Treat lip scrub also contains organic jojoba and lime oils. If you’re a fan of sour sweets, then Trick or Treat is the perfect lip scrub for you. Its scent is nose-wrinklingly-sour and is just like a freshly cut lime. Taking its lid off and having a sniff feels like the very first swig of a really fizzy drink, it literally tickles your nose.

Trick or Treat lip scrub tastes just as good as it smells too; I just can’t get enough. It’s obviously not meant to be eaten but if a little does end up in your mouth while you are scrubbing your lips with it you don’t need to worry.

The Trick or Treat lip scrub is a stunning shade of lime green. Ordinarily, I tend to favour the lighter more natural coloured lip scrubs over the brightly coloured ones because I find the highly pigmented scrubs can sometimes leave your lips with a tinge of whatever colour the lip scrub is.

The biggest culprit of colour transfer in my opinion is the Galaxy lip scrub. Trick or Treat is clearly another very brightly coloured lip scrub however I am pleased to report that during use, I haven’t had any colour transfer from it at all.

The only negative thing about the Trick or Treat lip scrub is that it’s not as hydrating as other Lush lip scrubs. This minor inconvenience is however soon solved with a quick dab of lip balm.

Overall I really like the Trick or Treat lip scrub, it’s a stand out product from this year’s Halloween line. It’s a brilliant lip exfoliator and it is definitely all treat and no trick!

Cinnamon Roll Bubble Bar from Lush

In 2021 Lush have released more new bubble bars than I can keep up with, none of them have however got me quite as excited as the Cinnamon Roll Bubble Bar. Cinnamon Roll is a part of 2021’s Winter line and is set to be released in stores and online at the end of September.

The Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is the same size as the, The Comforter, Brightside and Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds bubble bars, HUGE! One of the very first items that I ever bought from Lush was the, The Comforter bubble bar. I picked it because it was so big and because I loved the idea that it was a product that could be spread out over several baths as opposed to a bath bomb being just for one.

Cinnamon Roll’s larger size is not the only thing that it has in common with the 3 big bubble bars that I mentioned above, it’s also made in the same way. The red and gold bubble bar mixtures are rolled together hence the ‘roll’ in its name.

If you’d like to see some behind-the-scenes footage from the Lush Factory and for better insight on how Lush make their products be sure to check out @lushsneakypeeks on Instagram. (Watching the videos are much better than me trying to explain it…)

The Cinnamon Roll bubble bar contains, benzoin resinoid, cinnamon powder and the following essential oils; Cinnamon leaf, clove leaf, lime, Brazilian orange and patchouli. Its scent is very similar to the scent of cola bottle sweets but with a warm and sweet cinnamon-rich twang.

Another product with the same scent as the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is the Hot Toddy shower gel. The Hot Toddy shower gel is yet another Winter product that I love, which is another reason as to why I was so excited about the release of the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar.

The ingredients in both the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar and Hot Toddy shower gel are super warming on the skin making them the perfect product to use for aches and pains, something I suffer with daily.

As I said earlier the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is on the larger side, I’m not shy when it comes to being greedy with my bubble bars and I always overindulge but if I was being sensible, I could easily get 7 or 8 generously bubbled baths out of just the one Cinnamon Roll bubble bar. I am shocked at how far the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar goes.

To use I break up the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar and stick however many pieces I want into a sieve before running it under the tap. Copious amounts of bubbles begin to build up in the bath immediately, I have never experienced a bubble bar like it!

Underneath the vastly growing blanket of bubbles the water turns a dark, wine-red with a beautiful sparkly-golden shimmer.

When it comes down to my never-ending fight with widespread chronic pain, the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is even better than when I use the Hot Toddy shower gel. I have never felt more relaxed, and my joints have never felt better soothed as they do when I’m marinating myself in a Cinnamon Roll bubble bath. It’s heaven in a bathtub!

The scent and its magical-warming-properties really hits you as soon as you sink yourself into its waters. It just seeps through to your muscles soothing both your body and state-of-mind.

With the Summer weather finally coming to an end and with Autumn already well underway I cannot get enough of the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar.

Do I recommend giving it a go? YES. I hope with all of my heart that Lush releases this bubble bar every Winter from now on. Sadly the Winter bubble bars are often only one hit wonders but the Cinnamon Roll bubble bar is exactly what has been missing in the Winter line for several years, Lush would be crazy to not make it a staple Winter product from here on out.

Orange Pop Bath Bomb from Lush

The Orange Pop Bath Bomb is set to be released at the end of September as a part of Lush’s 2021 Winter line. You may recognise its design from Winter lines of the past as Lush have used the same bath bomb mould (green leaf too) for Orange Pop as they did for their 2016 version of the So White bath bomb.

I decided to start my Winter 2021 bath bomb reviews with the Orange Pop bath bomb as it’s a product that doesn’t scream the C word. If you’ve read any of my past reviews on Winter products before, you’ll know how much I appreciate the Winter products that aren’t in-your-face Christmassy.

The Orange Pop bath bomb has a very simple ingredients list, Sicilian red mandarin, tangerine, Brazilian orange and bergamot oils with a generous, surprise helping of popping candy too.

You’ll recognise its scent from the bestselling and very much loved golden-oldie-Lush-product the Brightside bubble bar. I considered using both Brightside and Orange Pop together but the Orange Pop bath bomb is so powerful once in the water, I was super-glad that I didn’t.

If I am being honest (as I always am in my reviews) I really wasn’t expecting much from the Orange Pop bath bomb at all. Maybe because I had the Satsuma bath bomb from a past Christmas line in mind.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed using the Satsuma bath bomb but it just wasn’t very exciting compared to a lot of the other products on offer that year, it didn’t produce bath art and only really had a gentle citrus scent. I couldn’t have been more wrong in comparing the 2 together, Orange Pop is nothing at all like the Satsuma bath bomb, NOTHING AT ALL.

The Orange Pop’s scent isn’t too strong when you are handling it, that however soon changes when you put it in to your bath water. As soon as you drop the Orange Pop bath bomb into your bath water you are greeted with that super-satisfying hiss and a burst of super-sweet orange scent that takes over your bathroom.

Orange Pop isn’t hugely foamy; Small, light orange and green bubbles sizzle out of it as it slowly rolls around the water’s surface. It continues like this for the first 3 to 5 minutes before the green bubbles disappear completely, only leaving you with the light orange bubbles.

When I first used Orange Pop, it was at this point that I thought, oh, that’s it, show’s over. Then all of a sudden, a huge explosion of red erupted from the Orange Pop bath bomb.

When the Orange Pop bath bomb’s surprise red insides decide to make an appearance the popping candy also starts to snap, crackle and pop too! What I thought was going to be a relatively dull bath bomb just got way more exciting!

I took so many photos of the swirling red and orange bath art created by the Orange Pop bath bomb, none of them do this bath bomb justice. It’s a bath bomb you must experience for yourself.

If you miss the Christmas Sweater bath bomb like me, Orange Pop’s bath art is on par with it and features the same gorgeous colours too!

Orange Pop takes about 10 minutes to fully dissolve, once the popping candy has stopped, you are left with smooth and super-soft blood-orange bath water. Once out of the bath my skin felt so silky. It really seemed to perk the appearance of my skin up, it became much brighter and it was lovely and hydrated too.

Overall I really, really did enjoy using the Orange Pop bath bomb, its lovely scent remained on my skin for the rest of the day – (although thankfully, it is a lot more subtle on your skin than how it is in the bath!)

I am so excited for the Orange Pop bath bomb to hit the shops at the end of September, I really do believe that it’s going to sell very well and I will certainly be buying a few more to use too.

Golden Pineapple Lip Scrub from Lush

The Golden Pineapple Lip Scrub is set to be released at the end of September as a part of Lush’s 2021 Winter line.

Pineapple is one of my favourite fruits and not just to eat. I love it in decor too, right now, I have pineapples on my bedding, pineapple photo frames  on my wall and even a pineapple light. Pineapples feature in one way or another in every room of my house so naturally I was very excited when we first heard rumours about a new pineapple lip scrub.

The first thing that I noticed about the Golden Pineapple lip scrub was its snazzy label. It’s an eye-catching holographic gold, the label changes slightly depending on how the light hits it, I don’t think I have ever been as interested in a label before, it certainly makes a change from Lush’s normal-standard plain black and white labels.

When I first took off the lid and gave the Golden Pineapple lip scrub a sniff, I hadn’t looked at what ingredients it had in it. My nose immediately picked up on something a little spicy, within just a few seconds the sweet pineapple scent did however come through too. I quickly flipped the pot to see what ingredients it had in it as I wasn’t expecting a spicy element at all…

The Golden Pineapple lip scrub contains pineapple powder, yellow Mandarin oil, ginger absolute, golden caster sugar, ordinary caster sugar and plenty of organic jojoba oil and fair-trade shea butter. The ginger in it was the culprit for the slight spicy element and looking at the ingredients written down, I would never have thought to put pineapple and ginger together, but they both complement each other brilliantly.

The main ingredient in Lush’s lip scrubs is caster sugar. To this day I am still amazed that such a simple blend of natural ingredients can do such a thorough, yet gentle job of exfoliating your lips AND without drying them out. I love that the Golden Pineapple lip scrub is both warming and fruity, it’s the perfect Wintertime sugar scrub!

Using Lush lip scrubs requires the minimum amount of effort. They cover everything your lips need to always look their best. They are the perfect product to exfoliate dry, chapped lips and are also very good at softening and hydrating them at the same time. Exfoliating your lips has never been easier (or tastier) thanks to the Golden Pineapple. I will most certainly be keeping a pot of the Golden Pineapple lip scrub in my handbag throughout the whole of Winter. Dare I say Golden Pineapple is my new favourite Lush lip scrub? 😉

To use a Lush lip scrub all you have to do is scoop out a little with your finger and then buff your lips with it before licking off the excess. It’s easy enough to use on the go and the pot is small enough to have in your hand bag/purse too.

Another of my favourite things about the Golden Pineapple lip scrub is its colouring. It looks like it could be just a pot of golden caster sugar, I don’t think I have ever disliked a lip scrub from Lush but I do find that the more colourful ones such as the Unicorn and Galaxy lip scrubs, can leave an ever so subtle (but definitely noticeable) blue tinge on your lips, using less is more in the case of the Unicorn and Galaxy lip scrubs but when it comes down to the Golden Pineapple lip scrub, you can over indulge as much as you like without fear of turning your lips a different colour.

I am totally in love with the Golden Pineapple lip scrub, I can’t wait for it to hit the shops and I hope it sells well as it’s an absolutely perfect lip scrub that I’d love to see go mainline. The lip scrubs Lush keep creating just seem to be getting better and better! ❤️

The Sleeping Giant Bath Bomb from Lush

There have been several giant-sized bath bombs released by Lush over the last few years but none of them have been quite like the Sleeping Giant Bath Bomb. What sets this giant bath bomb apart from all of the rest is the inclusion of the reusable glow in the dark wax stars and moon.

The Sleeping Giant shares its scent with the Sleepy/Twilight range, it’s a massively bestselling Lush-scent, you are most likely to recognise it from the Twilight bath bomb and Sleepy body lotion. There are however many, many more products with the same scent currently available to try as well.

Inside the hollow Sleeping Giant bath bomb are lots of dry flowers. There’s sprigs of dry lavender, dry rose petals, dried pink delphinium petals, dried blue mallow flowers and my favourite, chamomile flowers too.

Being honest as always I don’t ordinarily go for the bath bombs with loose flowers in just because of the clean up afterwards, sometimes they are however worth using as a special treat. I only used all of my Sleeping Giant bath bomb together, petals-and-all as I wanted to get some good photos and also wanted to see it in all of its glory so that I could give you guys a fair review on it. 😊

Pushing the dry flowers to one side, the bath bomb part of the, The Sleeping Giant contains lavender, brenzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and ylang ylang oils. Anything including the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb from the Sleepy range is perfect to use just before bed. The lavender and tonka absolute are the perfect ingredient to help you wind down after a long, hard day.

After using the Sleeping Giant bath bomb its scent stays with you throughout the evening and even lasts on your skin for most of the next day. Not only do you benefit from its beautifully subtle scent hours and hours after using it, you also get soft, smooth and gloriously hydrated skin too.

The glow in the dark reusable wax stars and moon shapes are a very welcome extra from this bath bomb. We’ve had a glow in the dark soap (the Ghost in the Dark soap) before now but nothing like this that is completely reusable! To activate the glow in the dark moon and stars simply have them sat in natural light so that they can charge, before using them.

The photo below is of them broken away from the bath bomb, I sadly couldn’t get a photo of them that showed just how bright they do glow. Like many other Lush products the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb is one of those products you have to experience for yourself to really get a taste of how it is to use. Photos do not do it justice at all.

Overall I did really enjoy using the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb. As it is a giant bath bomb it is a little expensive but I am glad I tried it once as a treat. Would I purchase it again? No but only because I can now add the glow in the dark moon and stars to my bath with any Lush product I want now. I love that they are reusable!

The only issue I really had with the, The Sleeping Giant bath bomb is the clear up afterwards. Those dry petals get everywhere! Luckily I have a gadget that goes over the plug so none get stuck, blocking my bathroom pipes up. Scooping them up is easy enough at the end but not something I’d want to be doing after every bath.

I am always first to roll my eyes when people moan that bath bombs are messy so when I say the clear up was a little frustrating it really was. I am however glad I tried this bath bomb as a treat to myself. If I did have the opportunity to use it again I’d probably either take all of the dried petals out or only allow a few into the water.

Daisy Eye Pads from Lush

Another month, another delivery of the Fresh and Flowers Lush-subscription-box! The Daisy Eye Pads were exclusive to June’s Subscription box. After loving both the Cucumber and Rose eye pads from boxes previous to June 2021’s, I was very pleased to see yet another set of eye pads to try.

FRESH IS BEST and all of Lush’s eye pads are best kept in the fridge until you want to use them. The eye pads are a fairly new product from Lush and I can’t get enough of them. D.I.Y at home spa nights have never been so easy.

The Daisy eye pads contain chamomile, butterfly pea flower infusion, fresh aloe gel, carrageenan extract and the ingredient that sets the Daisy eye pads away from the rest – an ox eye daisy flower-head in each!

To use the Daisy eye pads all you have to do is take them out of the fridge, unwrap them from their fully compostable wrapping paper, then place them on each eye for approximately 15 minutes. I often wear them for a lot longer as I just love how soothing they feel on your eyes after a long day.

The Daisy eye pads are full of ingredients that can support and help you maintain healthy skin; Chamomile is particularly good for your eye area as it’a incredibly gentle and has both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, blended with the fresh aloe gel the Daisy eye pads are perfect for soothing tired, puffy eyes.

I’ve said in previous eye pad reviews that some people use the whole of an eye pad for each eye, while others cut their eye pads in half to make them go a little further. Instead of placing the whole thing over your eye, you place half of the cut eye pad just on the under-eye area instead. Due to the daisy-flower-head inside of each of the eye pads I however recommend spoiling yourself by using the whole thing at once when it comes to the Daisy eye pads!

15 minutes with the Daisy eye pads on really does make a difference. Once I have taken them off my eyes feel super refreshed and revived, almost like I have just splashed my face with cold water. The puffiness I get throughout the day is also slightly reduced, it’s a hard sensation to describe but the heaviness your eyes feel when you’re tired just seems to melt away.

Lush’s eye pads are said to stay fresh for approximately 3 weeks, this time frame can however be stretched somewhat if you haven’t handled them without the compostable wrapper too much and (most importantly) have kept them in the fridge.

Would I recommend using them more than once? I want to say no as the eye area is a delicate part of your body BUT if your eyes are clean before using it (and you are comfortable using it on yourself again) then I don’t see why not. I absolutely adore Lush eye pads, I really hope they make more available outside of the Fresh and Flowers subscription box soon as they are a real treat!

Diamond Dust Bath Bomb from Lush

Set to be officially released as a mainline product in a few weeks, the Diamond Dust Bath Bomb first became available in Lush’s, May 2021 Lush Kitchen Subscription box. Said to be the most sparkly bath bomb to ever be released, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one.

The first thing you notice about the Diamond Dust bath bomb is its unique shape, if you’re not at all familiar with UK TV gameshows, (ones that were on in the early 90’s in particular) this next reference won’t mean anything to you but for me, the bath bomb really reminds me of the old TV gameshow The Crystal Maze.

(pic 3 TBA)

Diamond Dust’s creamy pink and orange colouring as well as its unique shape has well and truly caught the attention of the Lush community. Containing neroli, ylang ylang, black pepper, sandalwood and vetivert oils its scent is both uplifting and relaxing.

Describing its scent is quite difficult because of its long list of ingredients but I will give it my best shot… You’d think that with so many ingredients the Diamond Dust bath bomb would have a powerful overbearing scent, its scent is however subtle and not at all in your face.

Even though the Diamond Dust bath bombs scent is subtle there are several layers to its fragrance, my nose first picks up on the neroli, then there is a warm smoky layer to it that rounds the neroli’s bitterness off. There’s also a floral element to it from the ylang ylang too. It’s incredibly moreish, a long soak in its waters leaves me refreshed and lulls me into a happier state of mind.

As soon as the Diamond Dust bath bomb hits the water it begins to fizzle away, light pastel pinks, oranges, yellows and creamy white foam sizzles out of the bath bomb as it charges around like a speed boat, dancing on the waters surface.

It’s a fairly slow fizzer and although it’s not big for bath art, there are several beautiful bath art shots of it on Instagram if you search via the hashtag #DiamondDustBathBomb. My photos in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all so please do check the hashtag out on Instagram.

Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with milky-peach-water that is jam packed with gorgeous shimmer. Lush weren’t lying when they said that this bath bomb was a sparkler! I wish I could have gotten a photo of the shimmer for this review but it’s so hard to capture on camera. It’s a bath bomb you have to experience for yourself to see its true potential and beauty.

My skin felt super-soft once I was out of the bath and its gentle scent remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day too.

I am really looking forward to the Diamond Dust bath bomb being released as a mainline product in September 2021. I love the monthly Kitchen Subscription boxes (where we first got access to this bath bomb) but when you get an amazing bath bomb like Diamond Dust getting just the one to try simply isn’t enough! I will most certainly be ordering a couple more of these as soon as they become available.

Watermelon Fresh Face Mask from Lush

At the time of writing this review, the Watermelon Fresh Face Mask has only been available through Lush’s July 2021, Fresh and Flowers subscription box making it super exclusive!

As you can see in the above photo, the Watermelon fresh face masks label is decorated just like the Watermelon Sugar lip scrub label is, if you like the lip scrub you’re sure to like the Watermelon fresh face mask just as much.

Sadly I haven’t heard any rumours about the Watermelon fresh face mask ever becoming a mainline product BUT anything is possible with Lush… so far everyone I know who has had the pleasure of trying the Watermelon face mask has had nothing but positive things to say about it so I am sure it would sell well, should Lush decide to make it a permanent fixture.

The Watermelon face mask has a relatively small list of refreshing ingredients; it includes fresh aloe gel, davana oil, chia seeds, fresh mint and of course, plenty of fresh watermelon.

Its scent is just like a bowl of freshly sliced watermelon (the really mouthwatering-type that you simply just can’t stop eating!) It’s difficult for me to put into words but its scent smells just like a watermelon tastes when you first bite into an extra juicy slice. I’m aware that sounds a little crazy but it just really does!?!.

The Watermelon fresh face masks label says ‘USE IMMEDIATELY’ so I bumped it up the list of Lush face masks that I have waiting to try, using it the day I received it. A little of the Watermelon fresh face mask goes a really long way, the furthest I think any Lush face mask has gone for me before.

I used it on myself (see photo above – Eeek! me with no makeup, lucky you) as well as my husband and it didn’t even make a dent in the pot, it doesn’t even look like it’s actually been used yet. I’m not sure how long it will last due to its ‘USE IMMEDIATELY’ instruction but I plan on using it all up over the next week or so.

I find if you apply Lush’s face masks with a face-mask-brush or metal spoon (basically anything sterile that isn’t your fingers please), it cuts down on any cross contamination – the product lasts longer as no bacteria from your hands get into it leaving it open to mould.

I will update this review if (before I can use it all up over the next week) it does go off but from previous Lush fresh-face-mask experiences I find that the masks do last after their use-by-date if you’re careful (application wise) as well as keeping it in the fridge.

The Watermelon face mask goes on easily and isn’t at all thick or gloopy. Apart from the chia seeds it’s almost invisible to see once it has been evenly spread on to your skin. When you first start applying it though, it really does look just like strawberry jam…

As I said earlier a little goes a very long way and using it fresh-out-of-the-fridge during this current heatwave was a real treat for me as it’s such a cooling mask; With a little going such a long way I was tempted to try it like a body mask too but decided against it at the very last minute because I wanted to use it on my face a few more times instead.

After wearing it for 10 minutes I took it off with a hot, wet flannel. It really helped soothe my skin and left my face appearing brighter and less red. I’d love to see the Watermelon fresh face mask become a main line product but I’m not sure how it would work freshness-wise, especially if Lush really do insist on you using it immediately.

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.
