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.

Jasmine Bath Bomb from Lush

The Jasmine Bath Bomb is the first product from Lush’s 2022 Mother’s Day range that I’ll be reviewing for you. If you are familiar with last year’s Mother’s Day line, you’ll be awash with the feeling of déjà vu when you see the Jasmine bath bomb as it looks identical to 2021’s Jasmine Cream bubble bar.

Although it looks just like the old bubble bar, it doesn’t share the same scent. The Jasmine bath bomb actually shares its scent with another much-loved, older product, the Northern Lights bath bomb. The Northern Lights bath bomb is one of my all-time favourites, so I was very excited to try a new bath bomb with the same scent.

The Jasmine bath bomb is around the same size at the Peachy bath bomb, just the right size to fit snuggly in to your hand.

It contains jasmine absolute and ylang ylang oil and has a musky yet sharp, floral scent. The more you focus on its scent the more your nose seems to pick up. It’s quite an acquired taste BUT fortunately it is a scent that I enjoy in whatever format Lush choose to release it in.

I’ve been begging Lush to create a body spray or perfume in the Northern Lights scent since at least 2015, I’m still patiently waiting. No rush, Lush. 🙄

As soon as the Jasmine bath bomb touches the water there is no big eruption, or fierce hissing; Just a gentle stream of tiny white bubbles fizzing out of it, it’s so gentle that it barely makes any noise at all. Lush’s website describe the Jasmine bath bomb as ‘beautiful’ and ‘subtle’ and that’s exactly what it is in the water.

You don’t get bath art out of it, just silky-soft, milky-white bath water. Performance wise the Jasmine bath bomb really reminds me of the latest version of the So White bath bomb.

Its unique selling point is 100% its glorious scent. While some may find its lack of colour boring, others may enjoy its simplicity. Sometimes a crisp white bath bomb is just as refreshing as a bright orange or yellow one that is bursting with colour.

The Jasmine bath bomb is the slowest dissolving bath bomb I have ever used from Lush. After 30 minutes, although it was almost all gone, it was still happily fizzing away. I loved laying back in the bath feeling the little bubbles from it tickling my skin, if you shut your eyes, it’s almost like being in a mini jacuzzi. I felt well and truly relaxed in its waters.

I don’t think I’ve ever got out of a bath before the bath bomb has finished before but for the Jasmine bath bomb I had to as someone else needed the bathroom after half an hour… 😬

My skin felt soft and hydrated and the scent remained on my skin for the rest of the day too. Overall, I really did enjoy using the Jasmine bath bomb, its unique to all other bath bombs with its long fizzing time. What it lacks in bath art it well makes up for in scent and with how it leaves you feeling. I am super impressed with this one!

Lakes Bath Bomb from Lush

The Lakes Bath Bomb was first released by Lush as a product that was exclusive to August 2021’s Lush Kitchen subscription box. Shortly after this super-exclusive release it became a part of Lush UK’s regular line, giving more customers an opportunity to try it. At the time of writing this review it is still currently available.

Back before the Lakes was even released in the Lush Kitchen box, I read on one of Lush’s co-founders Instagram accounts that the Lakes bath bomb was inspired by a song written and performed by bestselling artist, Taylor Swift.

The Lakes bath bomb is a pretty little thing and is one of my favourite bath bomb releases from 2021. I am ecstatic that it has become a part of Lush’s permanent line. It would be a crime to have not made it more readily available for all to try.

It is a pastel green and pastel pink colour. To look at, it is very similar to (but not the same) as the charity bath bomb that was released by Lush a few years ago, Mermaid.

It is a standard shape and standard size bath bomb at 200g. There is just something about Lake’s pastel shades that make me instantly feel relaxed and refreshed. It’s plain but beautiful – sometimes less, is more.

The Lakes bath bomb was also inspired by the tranquillity of the Lake District, somewhere I have been lucky enough to visit back in my twenties. If I ever get to visit again – I’ll be sure to bring along a Lakes bath bomb.

The Lakes bath bomb has a long list of grounding and calming ingredients; labdanum resinoid, osmanthus absolute, myrrh resinoid, Siberian fir needle oil and oakmoss. Laying back in its waters really does make you feel as if you are reconnecting with nature.

The Lakes bath bomb’s scent is one I would love to have in perfume form. It’s fizzy like sherbet and both earthy and refreshing too. It’s not an easy scent to describe. The best I can come up with is that it’s like a breath of crisp, fresh air. One you’d only experience on a walk in the countryside.

As soon as you put the Lakes bath bomb into your bath water there is an explosion of green foam, as it bobs around the waters surface pink streaks begin to foam out of it too. The green and pink are both very cool shades which all adds to the tranquillity of the Lakes bathing experience.

Lakes is a slow fizzer, where its colours are of pastel shades, you don’t get any striking bath art, the colours do however create subtle light pink and green patterns. Lakes’ unique selling point is 100% its glorious scent.

As I said earlier, using it is just like you’re reconnecting with nature itself. If you shut your eyes and take a deep breath while lying in its waters it’s almost as if you’re bathing outside in the middle of a meadow, birds tweeting around you.

The Lakes bath bomb takes a good 10 minutes plus to fully dissolve. The water left behind is very similar to the water left behind by the Avobath bath bomb, however, Lakes’ water has a milkier more pearlescent finish. The water is silky smooth, my skin has never felt better after a good soak in the bath with a Lakes bath bomb.

Overall, I am a huge fan of this plain but beautiful bath bomb. I wholeheartedly stand by my earlier statement that it is one of my favourite Lush releases from 2021!

Kim the Carrot Bubble Bar from Lush

If like me you’ve been a Lush customer for quite some time, you’d know all about Lush’s past perfectly-innocently-shaped fruit and vegetable inspired Valentine’s Day products. 2022 has not only brought us a giant version of the Aubergine bath bomb but now we also have a Kim the Carrot Bubble Bar too.

Kim the Carrot is a carrot shaped bubble bar that appears to have legs. Yes, you read that correctly, it’s a carrot with LEGS! Never have I ever looked at a carrot and thought of it as a particularly romantic or ‘sexy’ vegetable but here we are with carrots in 2022’s Valentine’s Day line… You heard it here first, carrots are no longer exclusive to Lush’s Easter line.

The Kim the Carrot bubble bar is a fairly decent sized bubble bar at 120g (for comparison purposes The Comforter bubble bar, one of Lush’s largest is 200g) It contains a long list of ingredients; benzoin resinoid, vanilla absolute, fresh carrot juice and fresh ginger root.

Its scent is incredibly sweet, just like the bright pink candy sweets you get in sweet shops. If you told me that more than just vanilla was in this product, I wouldn’t believe you based on its scent alone.

The one thing I love about Lush’s bubble bars is that they can be spread out over several baths whereas bath bombs can only really be used in just the one bath. I was therefore pleased to find out that a very small amount of the Kim the Carrot bubble bar went a very long way.

To use the Kim the Carrot bubble bar, I put broken up pieces of it into a sieve and let the running bath-water trickle over it as the bath fills up. It’s a really soft, crumbly bubble bar making it very easy to break up.

I find the sieve method the most effective way to use single use bubble bars. It is also the best way to ensure that none of the bubble bar gets accidentally wasted. Through trial and error, I have discovered that using a bubble bar in this way ensures that you get the most bubbles too.

(Photo 4)

You could easily get 3 generously bubbled bubble baths out of just one Kim the Carrot. The bubbles begin to form very quickly and the water underneath the blanket of bubbles is just as bright orange as the water created by the Brightside bubble bar.

The water is smooth to the touch and the bubbles last throughout your whole soak. One thing I did notice after using the Kim the Carrot bubble bar is that it wasn’t as hydrating on the skin as other recently released Lush bubble bars have been. It didn’t dry my skin out at all, I just noticed it wasn’t as moisturising as I have grown accustomed to.

Overall, I enjoyed using the Kim the Carrot bubble bar, it isn’t my favourite from the Valentine’s Day line, but I am glad I tried it.

Love Bug Bath Bomb from Lush

The Love Bug Bath Bomb is brand new to Lush and is a standout product from their 2022 Valentine’s Day range.

If you’ve been a Lush customer for some time and have shopped from past Valentine’s Day lines before now, you may have a slight feeling of déjà vu when giving the Love Bug bath bomb a sniff – and for good reason too… The Love Bug bath bomb shares its scent with the past and very popular Valentine’s Day product, the Love Boat bath bomb!

Colour wise, the Love Bug bath bomb is almost identical to Love Boat, the only real difference between the two bath bombs is the most obvious; One is a boat the other is a car and the second less obvious fact, the Love Bug bath bomb isn’t decorated with the confetti hearts like the Love Boat was.

I’ll admit, I was a little sad to see that the Love Boat bath bomb hadn’t made a return, but all was not lost with the Love Bug bath bomb being so similar.

The Love Bug bath bomb contains rose, organic sweet orange and Sicilian lemon oils. Its scent is a zesty and floral affair. The Sicilian lemon and sweet orange oil dominate the Love Bug bath bombs scent, it does however have a slight floral element to it too, the rose oil adds a soft sherbet like layer. I find its scent uplifting, refreshing and cheery.

Once the Love Bug bath bomb touches your bath water you are greeted with an explosion of thin pink, yellow and blue foam. As it fizzles away, the blue and yellow colours blend together creating streaks of green and the blue and pink blend together creating streaks of purple too.

The Love Bug is a quick fizzer taking approximately 7 minutes to fully dissolve. Its refreshing scent is strong throughout the whole bath and I can still smell it on my skin several hours after getting out.

The water left behind is silky smooth and a clear dark pink colour. The rose oil in it makes it a very soothing experience for Winter frazzled skin. After a good soak in a Love Bug bath, I feel revived and refreshed.

I didn’t get great photos of the Love Bug bath bomb in action, it’s a bath bomb you must experience for yourself to truly appreciate its beauty. For a bath bomb that is just pink, yellow, and blue I couldn’t quite believe all of the colours that exploded out of it. The rainbow of colours was just as good as those created by the actual Lush rainbow-bath-bombs, Toby’s Magic Cow and Follow the White Rabbit.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Love Bug bath bomb. It’s pretty much the same as Love Boat so if you are disappointed it didn’t make a return this year (or if you are looking for a product that gives you a similar experience) make sure you give the Love Bug bath bomb a go!

Hot Lips Lip Mask and Scrub from Lush

The Hot Lips Lip Mask and Scrub is the first of its kind from Lush. We’ve had similar with their eye pads before now, but have never had a lip mask.

Along with Hot Lips being a lip mask, it is also apparently a lip scrub. I was very intrigued when I heard about this aspect of Hot Lips as before now, all of Lush’s lip scrubs have been sold in a pot (for example, the Golden Pineapple lip scrub. There were a few solid lip scrubs that were released back in 2017 too, Black Rose being my favourite) but unfortunately, they didn’t sell well so got scrapped and have long been forgotten about…

As I said earlier, Hot Lips is made in a similar way to the fairly new Lush-product-invention, eye pads. Hot Lips has the same sturdy, jelly-like consistency and must be kept in your fridge until you’re ready to use it, staying fresh for 3 weeks.

Hot Lips is described on Lush’s website as being very similar in flavour, to a delicious Cherry Bakewell. Ingredients wise, Hot Lips contains, calendula petal and hibiscus flower infusion, carrageenan extract, bamboo stem extract (the scrubby aspect of the mask that I’ll talk more about later) and the following essential oils – davana, lime and almond.

To use Hot Lips as both a mask and scrub, there are 2 stages. Stage 1 is the lip mask aspect of it. All you have to do is take Hot Lips out of your fridge, unwrap it from its fully compostable wrapping paper, then place it on your lips for about 10 minutes. With it being fresh from the fridge, it’s extremely cooling on your lips. Sit back and relax and let Hot Lips soothe and smooth your lips.

Stage 2 of using Hot Lips is as a lip scrub. When I first got a hold of this product, I really wasn’t sure how well this product would work as a scrub. The grounded bamboo in Hot Lips however add a very gentle scrub like consistency. As you gently buff it over your lips it slowly starts to break down becoming scrubbier. While I don’t think Hot Lips is as good as a lip scrub as Lush’s potted ones, the mask stage did soften my lips somewhat and the scrub stage did make my lips feel somewhat smoother.

Would I recommend using Hot Lips more than once? No. In this products case, fresh is best. With it being a product for your lips and one you have to handle a lot to use, I would say you should only really use it the once.

Although, it is plenty big enough for you to cut it in half (and still have enough product to cover all your lips at the mask stage) so if you want to stretch out 2 uses from it, that is a good solution. You just won’t have the novelty side of the product as cut into 2, it won’t be lip shaped anymore.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Hot Lips lip mask and scrub. It was nice to experience a different type of lip scrub and I was surprised at just how well it did work. Hot Lips is a fantastic addition to Lush’s Valentine’s Day line, and I look forward to seeing what Lush next come up with!

Mr Loba Loba Bath Bomb from Lush

As soon as the 2022 Lush Valentine’s Day products were revealed, I knew that the Mr Loba Loba Bath Bomb would be the first one that I grabbed. As you can see from the above and below photos, Mr Loba Loba is a gorgeous little lobster shaped bath bomb with a sprinkling of biodegradable red confetti hearts decorating its body.

The Mr Loba Loba bath bomb is approximately 100g, similar in size to the Sleepy Bear and Tick-Tock bath bombs.

Mr Loba Loba is a gloriously bright red and as I mentioned earlier, is lightly decorated with a sprinkling of confetti hearts. I love the inclusion of these in bath bombs, just like the bath bombs that contain popping candy I feel the confetti hearts add something a little extra for your visual pleasure.

The Mr Loba Loba bath bomb contains benzoin resinoid, tonka absolute and almond essential oil. Its scent is sweet yet warm. It smells almost like a blend of vanilla and some type of berry fruit, the almond essential oil adds a nuttiness to its fragrance, rounding off the tonka absolute. It’s incredibly moreish and a scent I would like to see more of from Lush.

What with the recent price hike on all of Lush’s products, I’d say that the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb is actually a quite reasonable price. I can see a lot of Lush’s future bath bombs being of a similar size just so Lush don’t begin to price themselves out. I don’t normally mention exact prices in my reviews as Lush do change their prices a lot.

Sadly, bath bombs are single-use-products, and I can’t even see myself, (a self-confessed Lush addict) wanting to spend much more on a single bath bomb, maybe smaller Lush bath bombs like Mr Loba Loba are the way of the future, who knows?

As soon as the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with an explosion of red foam. I think it might just be the foamiest bath bomb that I have ever used from Lush.

Like the Lucky Tiger bath bomb, Mr Loba Loba isn’t a bath art creator, its unique selling point is its enchanting scent and just how foamy it is. It makes the most incredibly soft water and leaves your skin super hydrated.

As the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb floats around your bath, the red confetti hearts begin to break away from the bath bomb slowly decorating the water with perfect little love-hearts.

For its size the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb takes a lot longer to dissolve than I expected – a good 5 minutes. As I said earlier, it’s the foamiest bath bomb I have used in a very long time, this foam makes the water so, so soft and hydrating. My skin loved it; I didn’t want to get out of the bath.

Eventually, (and only because the water got too cold) I did have to get out of the bath and pull the plug. The scent remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day and left it feeling silky smooth!

Overall, I adore the Mr Loba Loba bath bomb. It’s a fantastic, novelty addition to the Valentine’s line. I’d love to see it year in, year out but am trying to not get too attached as Lush have a habit of making products like this one-hit-wonders…
