Purple Carrots Shower Gel from Lush

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As I said earlier, the Purple Carrots shower gels consistency is deliciously thick but not so thick it’s hard to get out of the bottle. It lathers up easily and a small amount goes a very long way. Once the hot water and steam of the shower meets the shower gel and you begin to lather it up, its scent engulfs you, filling your bathroom with its gorgeously refreshing scent.

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

The Imperial Egg Bath Bomb from Lush

I was really enjoying Lush’s 2022 Easter line; You can see this from all of the previous-to-this-posts, written reviews. It however wasn’t until I got April’s Lush Kitchen Subscription box that I realised how much better the Easter line could have been…

The Imperial Egg Bath Bomb was one of 5 products available in this month’s Kitchen box and I promise you that I am not exaggerating when I say that April 2022’s box was the best Lush Kitchen box to date.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb is exactly the same shape and size as this years’ The Golden Egg bath bomb. It’s a small one weighing in at only 90g but if Lush products have taught me anything over the years, it is that size doesn’t indicate how good or bad a product is going to be.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb is a shimmery, light-blue and contains eucalyptus, lemongrass, and peppermint oils. Its scent is incredibly refreshing. It has a clean, sharp fragrance that could wake up the weariest of souls. The peppermint and eucalyptus within it are the more dominant ingredient, scent wise.

As soon as the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb meets the water little bubbles begin to sizzle out of it. After just over a minute of light, gentle bubbles, green foam suddenly starts to spill out of the bath bomb.

The blue part of this bath bomb appears more white than blue, once it has been in the water for a while. Slowly but surely, the green foam spilling out of the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb becomes fiercer. Spouting from 2 points of the bath bomb instead of just the one. As the bath bomb spins in the water, beautiful green and white bath art begins to form on the water surface.

Looking back at the photographs and video footage that I captured of this bath bomb in action, I can see that it only took 7 minutes to fully dissolve. As you can see from the photos, I have included in this review it didn’t disappoint when it came down to pretty colouring and bath art.

Earlier, I mentioned that the 2022, Lush Easter line could have been so much better had they included some of the products exclusive to April’s Lush Kitchen box in the line. I think the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb would have been a best seller had they included it. I hope that Lush see sense and put it in next year’s Easter line as I’d love to use it again.

The Imperial Egg bath bomb’s scent make it a good product to go for if you have the sniffles, the eucalyptus in it makes it especially good for helping soothe sinus issues. For centuries, eucalyptus oils have been used to help manage with the symptoms of the common cold.

Even without a cold, the eucalyptus and peppermint oils in the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb make it a super awakening bath bomb. It is a great bath bomb to use if you’re in need of just an energy boost.

Once the bath bomb has fully dissolved you are left with bright green water, all of the goodness from the bath bomb’s ingredients makes the water incredibly soft and laying in its waters leaves your skin feeling silky smooth to touch and also leaves your skin appearing much brighter.

Overall, I am really, really impressed with the, The Imperial Egg bath bomb. I don’t mean to repeat myself, but I really do hope that Lush decide to release it in their Easter 2023 line as I’d love to use it again, and I feel others who aren’t subscribed to the Lush Kitchen boxes deserve a chance to use it too.

The Easter Bunny Bubble Bar from Lush

The Easter Bunny Bubble Bar is a brand-new, limited-edition product from Lush’s 2022 Easter line. Designed to look like a superhero bunny, this all-gold bubble bar was one of the first of this year’s Easter products to catch my attention.

You may recognise The Easter Bunny bubble bars scent as it also features in one of Lush’s most popular Halloween products, the Sparkly Pumpkin.

The Easter Bunny bubble bar is approximately 130g so reasonably small in comparison to other bubble bars in its price range such as The Comforter, which, at the time of writing this review is only 50p more and 70g bigger.

The Easter Bunny bubble bar contains grapefruit, juniperberry and lime oils. Lush’s website describes The Easter Bunny bubble bath as an ‘eggciting citrus soak’.

The juniperberry in it warms you up and the grapefruit in it uplifts and brightens your mood. Its scent is a woody and gentle citrus blend. One thing I feel I must point out is that this bubbles bars scent wasn’t as strong as I’d have liked. If you favour the products with a more subtle scent, then The Easter Bunny would be a great choice for you.

To use the, The Easter Bunny 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.

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 get 2 adequately bubbled bubble baths out of just the one Easter Bunny bubble bar although, I do recommend using the whole thing in one bath if you want to get the most out of its scent. What really lets down the, The Easter Bunny bubble bar is the weakness of its scent.

It doesn’t take long for the blanket of fluffy white bubble to form and a little goes a long way if you’re looking for just bubbles. Using more bubble bar will help the scent be somewhat stronger. To reiterate what I said earlier, I recommend using the whole thing to get the most out of this bubble bar, scent and bubble wise.

Underneath the blanket of fluffy, white bubbles the water turns a golden-yellow (the photo below does it no justice at all) it has the most spectacular golden shimmer dancing around it too.

An Easter Bunny bubble bath leaves your skin silky-smooth and well nourished. Its scent unfortunately doesn’t hang around on your skin for very long, I hope one day that Lush bring out a body lotion in its scent, after all we already have the body spray so it’s certainly doable.

Overall, I am glad Lush released this. As I’ve said, its scent could have been a little stronger but when used all at once it makes for a fantastic bath.

I hope Lush bring out more Sparkly Pumpkin/Easter Bunny scented products soon as it’s a scent I’d love to see carried on in to other product formats, a shower gel equivalent would be heavenly. Hint, hint Lush!

Gummy Bear Shower Jelly from Lush

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Mimosa Shower Gel from Lush


The Mimosa Shower Gel is a brand-new, limited-edition, Mother’s Day product that first became available in the UK in the middle of February 2022. I have well and truly grown bored of Lush’s small collection of all-year-round shower gels so was very excited to get a brand new one in the shower with me.

Mimosa shower gel is a beautiful shade of golden orange, when the sunlight hits it, it really reminds me of a fresh bottle of Calacas shower gel, it glows in exactly the same way. Lush have done the impossible with this shower gel, it is quite literally the sun in shower gel form.

It has a thick but easy to get out of the bottle consistency and since its release, has been popular throughout the Lush Community. There is something about it that is so incredibly moreish.

The Mimosa shower gel contains a long list of ingredients; elderflower infusion, fresh orange juice, wine lees oil, mimosa absolute, sweet wild orange oil, and carnation absolute to name just a few.

Give or take a few ingredients such as the mimosa absolute, the Mimosa shower gel shares a lot of the same ingredients as the Celebrate and Bubbly shower gels. I was really surprised when I first sniffed the Mimosa shower gel straight from the bottle, I was expecting it to smell a little like the shower gels I mentioned earlier but not quite as much as it did.

At first, I really was convinced that the Mimosa shower gel was just yet another version of a Celebrate scented shower gel. I thought Lush had cheated with their claim that Mimosa was a new scent entirely. Some products scents, particularly shower gels do however change in use so although I was sceptical of it being a new Lush scent, I kept an open mind.

As I said earlier, the Mimosa shower gels consistency is quite thick but not so thick it’s hard to get out of the bottle. It lathers up easily and a small amount goes a very long way too. Once the hot water and steam of the shower meets the shower gel and you begin to lather it up, its scent becomes less like the Celebrate shower gel and more of its own.

It is still very similar to the Celebrate shower gel scent wise BUT it has a floral twist that becomes less subtle and more dominant during use. As the mimosa note of the shower gels fragrance becomes more apparent the more, it reminds me of warmer weather and the sunshine. It literally washes away your Winter blues, it’s the perfect pre Spring pick-me-up.

My favourite thing about the Mimosa shower gel is however how it leaves my skin looking and feeling. After I’ve used it, the scent doesn’t last on my skin for very long (if at all) BUT it does leave my skin feeling incredibly soft. It’s also very hydrating; it seems to lock in moisture just as well as a body lotion does.- Overall, I really do like this shower gel, it’s perfect for this time of year. It’s quite literally a bottle of shower-gel-sunshine!

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!
