Salt Water Soother Magnesium Bath Bomb from Lush

Straight after Christmas 2022, Lush released a range of magnesium-based products. The new collection contains 3 magnesium massage bars and 2 Epsom salt bath-bomb-cubes. Today I am reviewing one of the Epsom salt bath-bomb-cubes, the Salt Water Soother Magnesium Bath Bomb.

The magnesium range was created with exercise and muscle recovery in mind as magnesium is said to have many benefits on your body before, during and after exercise.

While each of the magnesium products within this line have been made to help support exercise performance with a focus on your muscles and mind but you’ll be fine using them without exercising before/after too. 😉 *exhales a sigh of relief*

As a wheelchair user, exercise isn’t really my thing but anything that I can use that helps with aches and pains is a must try for me. The Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb is more focused on winding down after exercise, while the Salt Water Soother bath bomb is all about adding a spring to your step afterwards.

Epsom salt is very popular to use in hot baths to help with muscle pain, even though I don’t exercise as much as I’d like due to illness, I do get a lot of muscle pain. This is what drew me to the magnesium range and if I’m honest, pain relief is why I first got into Lush in the first place.

The Salt Water Soother bath bomb is cube shaped, 1 half of it is yellow and the other is blue. They are approximately 180g each so a little bit smaller than the average sized Lush bath bomb.

The Salt Water Soother bath bomb contains, peppermint, eucalyptus and spearmint oils. It has a super uplifting scent, just one sniff could wake the sleepiest of souls. The eucalyptus and peppermint in it are what my nose picks up on the most. I can see this bath bomb also being a good pick-me-up if you have a cold or worst still, a hangover!

As soon as the Salt Water Soother bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a loud hiss. The yellow and blue colour that spills out of the bath bomb are bold and bright. Like the aforementioned bath bomb, Deep Sleep Magnesium, the Salt Water Soother is a very quick dissolver and didn’t create any bath art.

The Salt Water Soother bath bombs scent intensifies and engulfs your bathroom from the moment the bath bomb touches the hot water. Within just 2 minutes the Salt Water Soother bath bomb has fully dissolved leaving you with super soft, neon green bath water. This bath bombs star qualities are its scent and how it leaves you feeling both physically and mentally.

My skin lapped up the wonderfully soothing magnesium infused waters, it left my skin so incredibly soft and really did make a difference to my aching muscles. Laying back in its waters leaves me feeling energised and refreshed.

Overall, I loved everything about the Salt Water Soother bath bomb. Its scent and its ingredients really do leave my muscles soothed and ready to take on the rest of the day. Used in the morning it really does make a difference on how my day goes.

If you’re chasing a boost of energy in a nice and relaxing atmosphere, I couldn’t recommend using the Salt Water Soother bath bomb more. Although I no longer do much exercise, it really does put a spring in my step!

Co-Mingle Body Scrub from Lush

The Co-Mingle Body Scrub first came out back in March 2022 and has been a staple, all-year-round product ever since. Since its release I have worked my way through several pots. Spoiler alert, I love it!

Co-Mingle is sold in pots of 225g and is described on Lush’s website as a ‘3 in 1 lavender dream’, This is because Co-Mingle isn’t just any old body scrub, it’s a body scrub, moisturiser and body wash.

This 3 in 1 product is the first of its kind from Lush, when I first heard of it, I really didn’t know what to expect but was, as always, keen to give it a go.

The Co-Mingle body scrub is pastel pink and has a fluffy, light, mousse-like texture, it’s really unlike any body scrub Lush have ever released before.

Co-Mingles scent is very similar to the scent of the Deep Sleep bath bomb, it’s not quite the same but close enough for me to warrant mentioning it here. Co-Mingle contains a long list of ingredients, some of those included are, vanilla pod infusion and both lavender and almond oils.

Also included in the ingredients list are ground tagua nut and bamboo, this golden duo is the secret scrubby ingredients that makes Co-Mingle such a good exfoliator. 

A very small amount of the Co-Mingle body scrub goes a long way, I however ALWAYS overindulge when using it. I scoop out about 3 fingers worth and that easily does my whole body. I recommend starting off by working it into your skin slowly, this seems to get the most out of it being a scrub, moisturiser, and body wash.

The Co-Mingle body scrubs scent and gentle scrubbiness makes it perfect for me to use of a night-time especially when I struggle with restless legs. The scent calms me down and rubbing it on any part of my body that hurts really does soothe my muscles, it also seems to put an end to my muscles twitching stopping them from keeping me awake.

I mentioned earlier that the Co-Mingle body scrub is a staple, all-year-round product and I am so very grateful for this. From its release, it quickly became one of my favourite Lush products and one I always need to have a pot of.

The only other Lush product that ALWAYS helps me sleep of a night time is the Blackberry bath bomb, I’m devastated that Lush have discontinued it and am terrified that Co-Mingle will also get the chop one day.

The Co-Mingle body scrub truly is a 3 in 1 product, after using it my skin feels smoother, appears brighter and is so incredibly hydrated. There really is no need to moisturise after using it. It also cleans just as good as any shower gel or body wash.

I’m head over heels in love with Co-Mingle, it’s the type of product that made me obsessed with Lush in the first place, it’s gold dust. Anything that helps me feel as good as Co-Mingle does has a permanent place in my bathroom.

Deep Sleep Magnesium Bath Bomb from Lush

Straight after Christmas 2022, Lush released a range of magnesium-based products. The new collection contains 3 magnesium massage bars and 2 Epsom salt bath-bomb-cubes. Today I am reviewing the Deep Sleep Magnesium Bath Bomb.

This new magnesium-based bath bomb is not to be confused with the Deep Sleep bath bomb also currently available. They however, both have the same dreamy scent so if you did enjoy the original Deep Sleep bath bomb, this magnesium version is definitely worth a try.

The magnesium range was created with exercise in mind. Magnesium is said to have many benefits on your body before, during and after exercise. These products have been made to help support exercise performance, recovery and to aid you into getting a more restful sleep. As a wheelchair user, exercise isn’t really my thing but ensuring I get a restful night’s sleep is right up my street!

Epsom salt is very popular to use in hot baths to help with muscle pain, even though I don’t exercise as much as I’d like due to illness, I do get a lot of muscle pain. The Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb was therefore, naturally the first product from the new magnesium range that I reached out for.

The Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb is cube shaped, 1 half of it is pink and the other is purple. They are approximately 180g each so a little bit smaller than the average sized Lush bath bomb but we all know size doesn’t matter… 😉

The Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb contains some of the world’s most relaxing ingredients; Lavender, chamomile and neroli. Its scent is both soothing and relaxing. Scent-wise my nose mostly picks up on the lavender, it’s a very sweet yet herbal scent.

As soon as the Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb touches the water you are greeted with a ferocious hiss. The purple and pink colour that spills out of the bath bomb are subtle in comparison to how bright the colours are in the actual bath bomb. I didn’t expect the Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb to be very foamy due to the Epsom salt and I was right.

The Deep Sleep scent intensifies and engulfs your bathroom from the moment the bath bomb touches the hot water. Again, due to the salt in the Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb it’s a very quick fizzer. Within 2 minutes the bath bomb has fully dissolved. There’s no bath art, this bath bombs star qualities are definitely its scent and how it leaves you feeling both physically and mentally.

My skin lapped up the wonderfully soothing, Deep Sleep Magnesium-infused-waters, it left my skin so incredibly soft and really did make a difference to my tired muscles. Laying back in its waters is like floating on a cloud.

Overall, I loved everything about the Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb. Its scent and its ingredients really do leave my muscles feeling lighter and my mind much calmer. Used just before bed it is perfect to help lull you into a truly relaxed state of mind. I’m a terrible sleeper so always grab products like this to use of an evening.

If you’re chasing a better night’s sleep, I couldn’t recommend the Deep Sleep Magnesium bath bomb more. Although I no longer do much exercise, I can tell how good it would be to use after a run or session at the gym. It’s magic on my tired, achy muscles after a long day.

I wish it existed back when I was at school as I could have really done with it the day after having a PE lesson!

D8 Bath Bomb from Lush

Lush have recently started to do product collaborations with a vast list of other likeminded businesses, companies and more. These seemingly popular collaborations have been churned out by Lush at such a rapid rate that it’s been difficult to keep up. None of the collaborations have however got me quite as excited as Lush’s collaboration with Netflix’s science-fiction television series, STRANGER THINGS.

If I’m being completely honest, I pretty much live under a rock and most of the collaborations before this one have been collaborations with tv shows/clothing companies that I’m not at all familiar with.

Stranger Things I have however heard of; I’d go as far as saying I’m a super fan. Even after using the products, I still can’t quite believe a Lush X Stranger Things collaboration has even happened?! MY MIND IS BLOWN!

Released back in November 2022, the Lush X Stranger Things collaboration is a gift set called the HFC Bathing Duo, AKA the HELL FIRE CLUB BATHING DUO. It contains 2 bath bombs, the D8 Bath Bomb (pictured above) and the, The Rift Bath Bomb. Today’s review is going to be on the D8 Bath Bomb.

The D8 bath bomb is quite the unique shape, designed in the shape of an 8-sided Dungeons and Dragons dice (a game the main characters in Stranger Things spend many hours playing, it’s also the inspiration behind the whole series)

I didn’t know which bit of the bath bomb to focus on in the photos, each side of the D8 has an image or number on it that is either related to Lush, Stranger Things or both, it’s such a thorough and well-thought-out creation!

The D8 bath bomb shares its scent with the Intergalactic bath bomb a great decision from Lush considering it is one of their bestsellers. D8 contains a long list of ingredients, some included are peppermint, grapefruit, vetivert and cedarwood oils.

The Intergalactic scent family is primarily peppermint, the grapefruit in it however adds a fruity and citrus sharpness to it, it’s a very hard scent to describe and really is one you must experience to appreciate.

The Intergalactic scent is powerful at first but quickly became one of my all-time favourite Lush-scent-families. I’ve been eagerly awaiting a body spray that shares its scent since 2015… HINT, HINT, LUSH.

As soon as you place the D8 bath bomb into the water it starts to gently hiss. Small white bubbles begin to spill out of it. Slowly but surely the D8 bath bomb floats around your bath, charging around like a little speed boat. After about a minute and a half a streak of red and blue begin to trickle out of the all-white bath bomb too.

The most beautiful red, white and blue bath art then begins to unfold before your eyes, the photographs I have included in this review do the bath bomb no justice at all. After approximately 5 minutes the D8 bath bomb has fully dissolved the water left behind is a cloudy greyish-light-blue and feels like silk.

I really wasn’t expecting such great bath art from the D8 bath bomb, the red, white, and blue swirls it created were picture perfect! The scent from the D8 bath bomb lasts throughout the whole of your bath and leaves me feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world. Or should I say Vecna?

Overall, I LOVED THIS COLLABORATION! I don’t think Lush could ever top this. As I said at the start of this review, I’m still lost for words that it even happened. I can’t wait to see what/who Lush decide to collaborate with next.

There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List Bath Bomb from Lush

I have been super-excited to review the, There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List Bath Bomb as it really reminds me of Lush’s phenomenal 2016 Christmas line.

2016 was such an exciting year for Lush as we had the first, legendary Lush-creative-showcase. It is one of my (if not my) fondest memories of Lush and I still get butterflies thinking about what an amazing experience it was.

The There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List bath bomb wasn’t a product available back then so you’re probably confused as to why I am even mentioning it BUT this bath bomb just seems to capture the same feelings of excitement in me.

I am a self-confessed Christmas-Scrooge so for me to be this excited about a product that is an in-your-face Christmas product is a huge deal indeed…

You’ve probably noticed the, There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice List bath bomb’s long name, to make it easier for you to read this review (and me to write this review) I will furthermore refer to it as the ‘There’s Room bath bomb’.

At the time of writing this review, the There’s Room bath bomb has only ever been available exclusively to those who purchased the December 2022, Lush-Kitchen-Subscription-box.

Whether it will come back as an actual product you can buy individually for Winter 2023 is a question that can only be answered by Lush. I however have my fingers crossed that it does make a reappearance at some point!

The There’s Room bath bomb contains some of the following ingredients: Rose oil, violet leaf absolute, sandalwood oil, and maple syrup and shares its scent with the Confetti perfume.

The scent is best described as heavily-violet, sweet and floral. I feel as if it is a mix of the Rose Jam shower gel’s scent and the Ultraviolet bubble bar. It’s floral but not in an old-lady way, it’s a fun scent that uplifts yet calms you down.

As you can see from the first and 2nd photos I have included in this review, the There’s Room bath bomb is a very clever design. I had to also include a side-shot of this bath bomb just to show you all how detailed it really is. Shaped as a yellow elf’s head, it has a pointed green elf-hat, pointed yellow elf-ears and bright pink elf-cheeks.

It’s one of the cutest bath bombs Lush have ever made, I imagine pressing this bath bomb is quite timely and that’s why it was only released as a Lush Kitchen exclusive.

As soon as the, There’s Room bath bomb comes in to contact with the bath water you are greeted with a soft hiss of yellow and green bubbles. As the bath bomb slowly dissolves the water gets to the bath bombs pink elf-cheeks and then pink bubbles start to spill out of the bath bomb too.

The bath art it creates reminds me of the bath art created by the 2021 version of the Lord of Misrule bath bomb albeit slightly different colouring. Some of the pictures I took of it also remind me of the Mermaid bath bomb although, There’s Room is much more colourful.

The There’s Room bath bomb takes a good 10-12 minutes to fully dissolve.

It doesn’t take long for the pink cheeks to disappear leaving you with just yellow and green bath-art-bubbles. Once all of the bath bomb has gone you are left with bright green, silky soft bath water.

The water is super-hydrating on your skin and once you’re out of the bath, the scent stays on your skin for the rest of the day. I could still smell it on my skin the next morning too.

As I said earlier, the scent of this bath bomb is quite a heavy one. Violet leaf is a powerful ingredient in perfume, and it works so well in the bath bomb format mixed with rose and sandalwood oil.

I can see this scent being made into several more different product formats in the future. As for my overall thoughts on the There’s Room for Everyone on the Nice list bath bomb, I loved it. I have my fingers crossed that Lush find a way to bring it out as a part of the 2023 Christmas line so that everyone can get a chance to try it, it’s fabulous!

Moon Bath Bath Bomb from Lush

The Moon Bath Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product, it was first released as a stand-out product from Lush’s incredible 2022 Christmas line.

Moon Bath happened to be the first bath bomb in the 2022 Christmas line to catch my attention because I’m a mini-Scrooge and love all of the Christmas products that aren’t in-your-face Christmassy.

You’ll recognise Moon Bath’s scent if you’re familiar with the Halloween-favourite, Ghostie bath bomb as they share the same powerful, zesty-fragrance. If you need to wake yourself up, a quick sniff of the Moon Bath bath bomb will do the trick.

The first thing I noticed about the Moon Bath bath bomb was how much it reminded me of a past Christmas-time product, the Angels Delight bath bomb. Both are decorated with a half moon face but that’s their only similarity. Moon Bath is a lot bigger than Angels Delight was, it’s the same size as the all-year-round bath bomb’s Twilight and Avobath.

Ingredients wise, the Moon Bath bath bomb contains – lemongrass, Sicilian lemon, Persian lime oils and plenty of popping candy.

As I said earlier, its scent is a powerful one. It’s super-sour, zesty fragrance will awaken all of your senses. People that think that all bath bombs make you feel sleepy have clearly never tried Moon Bath.

As soon as the Moon Bath bath bomb goes into the water it starts to fizz away. Slowly, thin orange foam spills out of it. It begins to spin, bobbing around your bath.

After 5 minutes a small burst of red foam spills out of the Moon Bath bath bomb. Thicker orange and red foam then begin to create the prettiest bath art.

The bath art that Moon Bath creates is very similar to the bath art that the Christmas Sweater bath bomb did, orange and red swirls go around and around right up until the bath bomb dissolves and it doesn’t take long after putting the bath bomb in for the popping candy to make an appearance too. Snap, crackle, pop!

The photos I have included in this review of the Moon Bath bath bomb do it no justice at all, I couldn’t get enough of this bath bomb in action. The zesty scent fills the room and really comes to life in the steaming-hot bath water. It’s impossible to not feel a spring in your step just by being in its presence.

The water left behind by the Moon Bath bath bomb is a warm and welcoming shade of orange.

Its scent lasted throughout the whole bath but didn’t last for very long on my skin once I was out of the bath. I think this leaves Lush with an obligation to make us a body lotion or body spray that has the Moon Bath fragrance! 😉

The silky-smooth, orange water left behind by this bath bomb is really soothing on your skin which isn’t always the case for citrus based bath bombs. I didn’t find Moon Bath drying on my skin at all BUT I do really think Lush need to create a body lotion with the same scent so that we can layer the scent up.

Overall, I really enjoyed using the Moon Bath bath bomb. With it not being particularly Christmassy, I could actually see it working as an all-year-round product. Maybe one day Lush could add it to the permanent all-year-round range as I’m confident that it would be very popular as a summery scent too!

Intergalactic Showder from Lush

The Intergalactic Showder is one of several products released by Lush in a collaboration with Lazy Oaf. I’m ashamed to say that before this collaboration I’d never actually heard of Lazy Oaf. Each product within this line ties in with something that you’d find in a launderette.

The entire line is inspired by Lazy Oaf’s up-front acknowledgement that life comes with both good days and bad days. The collection has been put together to remind customers that taking time to care for themselves should be as routine as doing your laundry.

I’m always honest in my reviews and I admit that this collaboration didn’t excite me very much but I’m a diehard Intergalactic bath bomb fan so when I heard there was a showder that shared its scent, I couldn’t resist buying a box.

For anyone who hasn’t experienced a Lush showder before, I suspect you’re wondering what a showder even is… A showder is quite simply a shower-powder. To use a showder all you have to do is take a handful of the powder from its box, then add water.

The Showder then foams up and creates a lovely thick lather. The reaction is not dissimilar to how a bath bomb reacts when it first gets wet. Once you have it all mixed up, you use it just as you would a shower gel.

Lush’s Intergalactic scent is a bestseller, the Intergalactic Showder contains a mixture of peppermint, vetivert and grapefruit oils. Its scent is primarily a peppermint one, the grapefruit in it however adds a fruity and citrusy sharpness to it. It’s incredibly difficult to describe and really is a fragrance you must experience yourself to truly appreciate how refreshing it is.

Scent wise the Intergalactic showder is spot on, as a product to shower with however, I’m not so sure. I hate to point out the obvious but it’s just not a very practical product. Firstly, it’s in a cardboard box, secondly, I feel I had to use a lot of the powder to get anywhere with it. With it being £15.00 for just 170g I just can’t see myself investing in a second box.

Yes, it did an alright job of cleansing my skin and its scent also remained on my skin for the best part of the rest of the day after using it BUT for its price I expected it to go a lot further, so many Lush products can be stretched out over several showers and baths but I was lucky to get 3 showers out of this one box.

Overall, I am glad I gave the Intergalactic showder a go, it’s a beautiful fragrance and an interesting concept but I think I much preferred the bottled Intergalactic shower gel if I am going to compare the two together.

Magical Santa Bath Bomb from Lush

The Magical Santa Bath Bomb is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Christmas line. I believe it has been released as a replacement for the Snowman Dreaming bath bomb as on the Lush website it is described as a ‘festive rainbow maker’.

Not only is it a brand-new bath bomb it also has a brand-new fragrance, its scent is a sweet, sugary raspberry. It has sherbet elements to it too, I hope to see more products with its fruity-scent in the future as it’s a real treat for your nose.

The first thing I noticed about the Magical Santa bath bomb was its size, at approximately 150g it is a lot bigger than I had anticipated, I was expecting it to be a lot smaller, closer in size to the Sleepy Bear bath bomb.

Ingredients wise, the Magical Santa bath bomb contains – Sicilian lemon, rosewood, lemon myrtle and carrot seed oils. It also has both beetroot juice and raspberry powders in it too. As I said earlier, its scent is a real treat for your nose, even long before I’ve put it in the bath I can’t get enough of it…

As soon as you place the Magical Santa bath bomb into the water it starts to fizzle away, bright pink and warm orange foam slowly spills out of it as its gorgeous scent starts to fill your bathroom (or bedroom for me as that’s where my bath tub is.)

The Magical Santa bath bomb wasn’t quite as colourful as I’d hoped, especially when you take into account that it is meant to be one of Lush’s ‘rainbow bombs’ this however didn’t ruin my experience of it though, the pink, white, warm yellow and orange bath art it created was really enjoyable.

The photos I have included in this review of the Magical Santa bath bomb do it no justice at all, there wasn’t a huge amount of bath art but the little patterns it did create were very tricky to photograph, in the end I decided to just lay back and enjoy the show.

The water left behind by the Magical Santa bath bomb is a warm and welcoming shade of blood-orange. Its scent lasted throughout the whole bath and still lingered in the air long after the last bits of the bath water had gone down the plug hole. I found it really refreshing to be using a fruity-scented bath bomb that wasn’t strictly citrus.

The silky-smooth blood-orange water left behind by this bath bomb are really soothing on your skin. Magical Santa’s beautiful scent although subtle, also remains on your skin for a good few hours after you have got out of the bath.

Overall, I did enjoy using the Magical Santa bath bomb, I’d have maybe liked to see a few more colours from it but everything else performance wise was perfect. I hope Lush bring it back next year and I’d love to see more products with its scent in the future as well.

Snow Fairy Body Lotion from Lush

It’s hard to believe that it took Lush until 2022 to bring out the Snow Fairy Body Lotion. The scent seems to have been made into every other product format possible through the years.

The Snow Fairy scent is best described as a sickly-sweet blend of candy floss and bubblegum.

I don’t always favour the super-sweet-scented Lush products HOWEVER, with the Snow Fairy scent featuring so heavily in so many of Lush’s products, it’s almost impossible to avoid, especially in the Winter.

Over the years I have slowly warmed to the Snow Fairy scent. The fact that all-things Snow-Fairy-scented are almost always exclusively pink is what always sells it to me. I wasn’t going to buy a pot of the Snow Fairy body lotion but after Lush sent me out a sample of it, I couldn’t help myself.

The most frequent question I have been asked about the Snow Fairy body lotion is how it compares to the Snow Fairy body conditioner.

The body lotion is a much lighter formula than the body conditioner equivalent, it’s just as hydrating but soaks in a lot quicker. I find a small amount goes a very long way which is always a bonus with Lush products, especially with the recent price increases of almost everything in the world right now.

The Snow Fairy body lotion isn’t my favourite of all the body lotions I have tried from Lush. I think my favourite out of the Winter body lotions will always be the Celebrate, Once Upon A Time and Calacas body lotions but it was nice to try something new.

The Snow Fairy body lotions bright pink colour was what won me over when it came to which Christmas products I’d be buying this year. I’m a true princess that can never get enough of anything if it’s pink.

As I said earlier, the Snow Fairy body lotion is hydrating, it’s scent on your skin isn’t as sickly sweet as other Snow Fairy products are, which is a good thing in my eyes as, as I’ve said many times before (especially with the sweet scents) sometimes less is more.

Overall, I am so pleased that I ordered a Snow Fairy body lotion, I probably won’t be buying another pot but only because I prefer other, fruity-scented body lotions more. If you are Snow Fairy crazy, I highly recommend buying yourself a pot of it though!

NEW Golden Pudding Bath Bomb from Lush

The Golden Pudding Bath Bomb was first released last year (2021) and was a combination of 2 much loved Christmastime products, the Golden Wonder and Luxury Lush Pud bath bombs. This year (2022) the Golden Pudding bath bomb has made a return but with a slightly different look.

The new Golden Pudding bath bomb still shares the same scent as last year’s version; Its shape is however different. Golden Pudding is no longer the standard round-bath-bomb shape, it now has a larger face, flat back, and the inside of it is hollow with loose bath-bomb chunks. When you shake it, it rattles in a similar way as the Jingle Bells bath bomb did.

The Golden Pudding bath bomb is mostly golden, with a white top and mini candy holly-shaped-crown. You’ll recognise its scent from several different past Winter products, some I have mentioned above, others include the Bubbly shower gel and Buck’s Fizz body conditioner.

Ingredients wise, the Golden Pudding contains both sweet wild orange and lime oils. It’s a tangy citrusy scent with a warm, boozy punch.

As soon as you place the Golden Pudding bath bomb into the water it starts to slowly fizz away. Golden foam trickles out of it as it calmly bobs around the bath.

It didn’t take long for the bath bomb to start spinning. A burst of orange-foam suddenly spills out of it.

The older version of the Golden Pudding bath bomb used to have both orange and pink inside of it, so I was a little disappointed to see that this new version only had a short-lived, tiny burst of orange.

The bath art from the Golden Pudding bath bomb was nowhere near as good as the original version of it, hence me only having the one photo of its bath art in this review. I couldn’t stop taking photographs of last years in action so this was also a disappointment.

The water left behind by the Golden Pudding bath bomb is a glorious shade of gold and so incredibly shimmery. Its scent lasts throughout your whole bath and lingers in the air once it has gone down the plug hole too. Laying back in its sweet yet warm waters left me super relaxed.

Its silky-smooth waters are also really soothing on worn out, Winter skin. Golden Puddings beautiful scent remains on your skin for the best part of the rest of the day too, something that’s quite unusual for a citrus based product.

Overall, I did enjoy using the new-look Golden Pudding bath bomb but it’s no way near as good as its original design. Its most redeeming feature is its incredible scent but performance wise it just wasn’t on par with last year’s version.

Lush get most things right but sadly changing the Golden Pudding bath bomb wasn’t one of them. This bath bomb has unfortunately been placed in my Lush-metaphorical ‘don’t fix what isn’t broke’ box.
