Fans of the Roller bath bomb were thrilled when the Strawberries and Cream Bath Bomb was first released last year (2019). Strawberries and Cream started its Lush-life as a Harajuku store exclusive.
Before long it then became exclusively available at Lush’s flagship store in Liverpool too. It is now currently at the time of writing this review available online and I believe in most Lush stores across the United Kingdom.
Sharing its scent with the aforementioned Roller bath bomb (which is arguably the most sought-after Lush product to ever exist) it has proven very popular. The Strawberries and Cream bath bomb contains geranium, bergamot and olibanum oils alongside cocoa butter and strawberry powder.
Strawberries and Creams captivating scent is all down to the carefully selected ingredients mentioned above. the Strawberries and Cream bath bomb smells just like a bowl of fresh strawberries that have been drizzled in a very generous helping of vanilla cream.
Lush seem to have taken inspiration for the design of Strawberries and Cream from the likes of the Golden Pear soap and bath bomb. Not to be confused with a Lush bubbleroon either, 2 sides of this juicy-red-strawberry-shaped bath bomb are sandwiched together with what I believe to be cocoa butter.
I’m not quite sure why Lush decided to do this, I’m however not complaining as this simple addition adds a whole new level of hydration to a bath bomb!
The Strawberries and Cream bath bomb is approximately the same size as the palm of my hand (not including fingers). Once in the water it instantly begins to fizzle away, sending green and red bubbles across the waters surface. The green fizz doesn’t last very long but the red holds out until the very end.
If you’re looking for bath art then Strawberries and Cream might not be the best choice for you as it does dissolve very quickly. Regardless of its lack of bath art, Strawberries and cream makes your bath water incredibly soft, so much so that whenever I use it I never want to get out of the bath let alone pull the plug.
Once you are out of the bath its scent although much more subtle on your skin, lasts on you for the best part of the rest of the day.
Although the Strawberries and Cream bath bomb is no where near as amazing in the water in comparison to the Roller bath bomb, I do really enjoy using it. Especially when I need to have a quick bath rather than a long soak.
Overall I really do like the Strawberries and Cream bath bomb. It hydrates and softens my skin so well that I do not need to moisturise after using it. Another great benefit if you’re in a rush.
I can totally see and smell exactly why Lush have decided at the time of writing this review to have it as a main line product, it’s berry, berry good! 🍓 😉 ❤️
